year the widely known Journalism
Week at Columbia. At the spring
meeting the election ot officers is
held and regular business is trans
acted. The fall meeting Is the play
session ot the organization, although
more real help and assistance is ren
dered at these meetings than at Co
lumbia. Each year the guild attempts to
bring some widely known writers or
editors to Missouri to the fall outing.
The little helpful hints that the be
ginners receive ffom these visitors
have been the means of several Mis
souri writers making rapid progress
in the short story field. Not alone do
the visitors aid, but Missouri has sev
eral writers uhosc work is as -familiar
to the readers pf first-class
magazines and booklovers as those of
writers from any other states, and
these Missouri writers have been a
big help to beginners. One of the big
gest things the guild has accomplished
has been to keep before the public
the fact that Winston Churchill, Ru
pert Hughes, Edna Kenton, Fannie
Hurst, Homer Croy and other equally
widely known writers are Missourians.
There is no attempt to create either
caste or class in the guild. The eligi
bility rule governing the active mem
bership is that those enjoying this
distinction must have had published
a book of literary nature on a royalty
basis, sold three stories to magazines
of general circulation or have written
a play that has been accepted by a
regular theatrical company.
