J Ed Crumbauch a graduate of the Univer- ! sity who for the last seven ears has been Dean of the School of Janitors, has been appointed to succeed Doctor Hill Though this announcement comes as a thunderbolt out of a clear sky to Mi-oiiri studtnts, it can by no means be accounted a hasty or mi-taken ac tion. I)r Hill has been considering this step ever since he was appointed in Vis. he admitted when interviewed yesterday He long has realized that Mr t rumlMUgh was qualified to dis charge tli duties of the po-t, and this uik pertel climax to his con victions came merely as the culmina tion of serious study and reflection. Having the gcod of Missouri students always at heart and being forced, through the mints of .Mr Crumbaugh. he resigmd in favor of the latter. Mr Crumbaugh was interviewed to obtain an idea of his intentions and nt hie nmninn of Dr. Hill's action. I Brandishing his cane alternately over each shoulder of the reporter and shifting his cigar from one side of hs mouth to the other, he delineated the true condition of affairs. "You see. when Dr. Jesse resigned I was expecting to be appointed to fill the chair Hut the Board of Cu rators had no clear-sighted men at that time The chose A. Ross Hill, then Dean in Cornell University. You understand? Well, next ear came the offer of this position which I now hold, and I accepted it, merely as a temporary makeshift. But always have I had mv eye on the presidency and ever was expecting the appoint ment knowing as I did, that Dr. Hill was a discerning man who eventually would bow- to the might of superior ability And I have been trying to fit mvself for the iost. I even had an old chair used by a former president, moved io mv oillce so that I could be come accustomed to 'Sitting in it. You see don't vou' I therefore vvas not !, surprised at this step of A.

Negative r-ciit he considers a relrc of barbarism he will permit students 'o stav in the University as long as they wish no matter how much neg ative credit thev have. Four years of military training will be required. This idea of having an advisor for women is foolishness and needless ' ettravaganr.'
