i The war heroes are at home as well
as In France. They are workers in
factories, in stores, on farms, in or
ifices, in homes. They are not the
1 winners of excess profits coined from
blood, nor do they march at the sound
of the drum or under the inspiration
i of an audience.
The labor leaders at Minneapolis
In the well-staged sessions of the
American Alliance for Labor and
Democracy declared in striking

had to be made over, or worn more
shabby. Every penny that could be
saved has been saved and made to go
as far as possible. And the wonder
is that so little protest and repining
have been heard; that so many fath
ers and mothers in humble homes and
tenements have attacked their partic
ular war problem with stout hearts
and with undiminished faith in their
Government and their country.
War resolutions at Minneapolis in
behalf of American labor are not to
be ignored, but if you ask who are
the real war" heroes among the work
ers, you will And them in the shops
and fields and on the railroads and
in the great productive industries
and especially among their wives and
children. To face the quest of daily
bread for hungry mouths, to pinch
and spare, to conceal the anxieties
which fill the heart, to maintain a
brave and smiling front, to be kind
and helpful to neighbors worse off
than you are that touching charity
of the poor to the poor all this is a
kind of war service which does not

borers at home in the stress of war
times exhibit heroism that it is worth
while again and again to record. The
war has brought a struggle for exist
ence to the toilers everywhere.
The New York Evening Post points
out that their normal incomes have
Increased, but their acyial command
' of the necessities of life has been im
, paired. Rising rents, the higher cost
of clothing and shoes, above all the
great advance in the price of food of
all kinds, have more than eaten up
jthe higher wages and the more con
tinuous employment. The result has
been to make life much harder in
many a workingman's home. Eco
nomics, already the rule, have had to
be made more rigid. The family diet
the present time ought to make every
good American grateful and proud.
The work of assimilating the new
student into the life of the Uniersity
has already begun. Those who are
here for the first time are learning
something of the customs and tradi
tions of .Missouri. The mystery of
the columns and the significance of
the mounds are being told the fresh
men with ever-renewed interest as
the new arrivals listen in amazement.
The famous Hinkson, Balanced Rock
and Lovers' Leap do not fail to receive
their proper elucidation. Rollins
Field, the Gym., the Library, the Mis
souri Union, the Y. M. C. A- and the
new buildings .are being inspected by
the new students.
Certain established Institutions de
mand perpetuation and support at the
hands of those who are for four years j
or more to carry forward the con
structive movements of the University
and the spirit of Old Missouri. To
do these things co-operation is Im
perative between old and new stu
dents. Years hence all students now here
for the first time will look back upon
their alma mater through memories
of the past, and refer with pride to
the institutions which they, with
many others, have helped create and
maintain. Let every student familiar
with the accepted order of things at
Missouri assist those here for the first
time to make the proper alignments.
This is an unusual year, not only at
the University of Missouri, but at
every university and college through
out the United States. More than
ever in the past, the new student is
being looked to for sound and delib
erate judgment in the things ho docs.
and for strong support in the pro
gressive efforts of the University,
since greater responsibilities than at
any previous time are being placed
upon the shoulders of the first-year
An open mind to suggestions and
recommendations on the part of
freshmen, resulting In complete co
operation between all classes, will ac
complish wonders. All together,
then, old students, new students, fac
ulty and alumni, let's plan and work
for the good of Old Missouri.
