TOLERANCE AND IMPOSITION
Tolerance Is one of the characteris
tics or American people. Sometimes
in some communities, an outbreak of
Intolerance occurs, and something
happens. That something may be a
race war, or it may be a weed cutting.
Sometimes we think we are tolerant
because we do not fight our neighbor
who is a Democrat, bometimes we
think we are tolerant because we do
not quarrel with our neighbor who
does her hair up on curlers.
We tolerate our neighbor's use of
the lawnmower or the carpet beater be
tween 4 and 5 o'clock in the morning
an'd we are generous In doing so. I
We also tolerate his barking dog
and his scratching chickens, although
we sometimes voice our annoyance.
Hut we frequently Itolerate open
ditches, which too often become a lot
of small pools full of stagnant water.
We tilerate bad sidewalks where
the contractor or owner tears up a big
square of the walk and does not re

Congressman S. D. Fess, who has done

party in Congress, was president of

The minister to the Netherlands,,
Henry Van Dyke, was a professor of
English literature from 1900 until his

Professor Garrett Droppers of Wil

The successful school man or col

Is not unnatural that the scholar
should play a larger part in politics.
In the development of our democracy
more attention is being paid to sociolog

Think of the Crass.
Editor the Missourian: jusi because
the grass is hot. withered and not at
tractive in appearance as it was in the
spring is no reason for (despising it
and tramping on it at every opportun
ity. Think of the grass now and then.
It Is having a hard time, too, from lack
of water and deserves some consideration.
It is no uncommon thing to see sum
mer students and others cutting across
the grassy plots of the campus as
though they were out in the pastures
of the country. This is especially
true of the Quad. During the winter
session it Is a rare sight to see a stu
dent trying to save a few seconds by
heeling it across the favorite beauty
spot ot the campus, a different atti
tude seems to pervade the minds of the
summer students as well as of the
regular students who stay over.
There are plenty of walks through
the campus to permit everyone to get
to classes and elsewhere in time with
out kicking the poor grass to death.
And now more than ever the .grass
needs our sympathy.
If instead of beautiful stretches of
green the campus should suddenly
nom nothing but barren tracts of dirt
and cinders we would be enragei at
the men in authority for not growing
grass. Yet many of us persist in do
ing our best to destroy this grass.
Let's save the grass and let the few
seconds we gain by cutting across the
Quad be lost. ji jj

Decayed or Infected Waste.
The warm weather Is making the

difficulty for the Civic League to

who looks after the garbage, collect

Complaints have lately been turned

duty. According to (Mrs. Jesse
Wrench, chariman of the health com
mittee, this is the fault of the people
themselves, rather than the fault of
the garbage man.
"Decajed garbage collects in the
cans because Columbians fail to keep
them clean. The garbage man can
not use this sort of garbage because
nothing infected can go into the tank.
Therefore, he must make a special
trip for this and bury it. It is not
fair that he should be asked to do
Mrs. Wrench urges that more care
be given to the cans. They should be
scalded every other day, and powdered

Hies. This time of the year such pre
cautions are necessary for the health
of the families of the community.

PARIS, Aug. 3. France paused yes
terday in tribute to the memory of Cor
poral Jules-Andre Peugeot, the first
Frenchman killed in the present war.
It was at Jenchery on the Upper
Rhine, at 10 o'clock a. m., August 2,
1914, about twenty-four hours before
the war was declared between Ger
many and France, that Peugeot was
shot to death by lieutenant Mayer, at
the head of a German patrol squad.
A national subscription Is today be
ing collected under the patronage of
the Minister of War and the Minister
of Public Instruction for the erection
of a monument to Corporal Jules-Andre
Peugeot ton the spot where he

sixth company of the 44th Regiment of
infantry. Early In August he was
stationed at Joncherey, two kilometers
from Delle and twelve kilometers from
the German frontier.

Just finished placing a sentinel and

court, when the latter's little daughter
came running in crying.
"The Prussians! The Prussians."
Rushing outside Corporal Peugeot
found himself facing a mounted Ger
man patrol of seven members under
the command of lieutenant Mayer of
the Fifth Regiment of Chasseurs sta
Peugeot gave the order to halt, to
which Mayer replied by drawing his
revolver and firing three shots into
the body of the Corporal. The latter
fell to his knees, discharging his gun
before he could take aim.
By this time a few of Peugeot's men
had rushed up, one of whom, named
Monnler, killed Lieutenant Mayer with
two shots from his rifle. In the fight
that followed, participated in by some
French dragoons who had come up at
the sound of the firing, all of the Ger
mans were killed with the exception of
one who escaped.
