In the present age, when people
travel from place to place, when con
ventions and meetings are frequently
held and as a consequence men re
ceive good or bad Impressions of
towns by-the sort of treatment given
visitors, there is nothing more im
portant in a town's good reputation
than its hospitality. Men have been
known not Infrequently to visit a
town and go out throughout the state
to talk about it unfavorably, to criti
cize its manner of receiving visitors
and the like.
Columbia, through the many years
of his history, has always managed
to keep its good reputation so far as
hospitality is concerned. Founded
by men from the South, who believed
in"leaving out the latch-string" for
the traveler and whose greatest pleas
ure was in entertaining a visitor
from another place, the town has
earned the reputation of being a place
where travelers of all sorts may go
and feel at home.
The fact that In its latter days Co
lumbia has been chosen for a conven
tion city, that women's clubs and oth
er organizations have met here time
and time again in preference to some
other place, are all proofs that this
place has kept Its good reputation
through the years. With its splendid
facilities for entertaining visitors to
day, Columbia will doubtless continue
to live up to the standard it has set
in the past and always be famous for
a genuine Southern hospitality.
young men have been "drafted" and
the married men are claiming "ex
emption." The "slacker" is among
us, seeking to avoid service by a
quick marriage. Women are taking
the place of men in business and in
dustry, and we are beginning to see
the "conductorettes" taking the place

These new words which have been
set off by quotation marks are but a
fewtjamples of the vocabulary of war
slang which we have adopted during
the last three years. As we become
more and more drawn into the thick
of the fight it is to be expected that
this list will become more familiar to
us. New words will spring up to
cover different phases of the life at
the training camps. The stimulus of
war reaches everywhere, even to our
Editor, The Missourian:
I send you herewith a patriotic

and believe it will be found valuable

Allied Potatoes with Jackets on.

an enormous crop of corn and oats.
Help win the war by eating some
of the healthy and nutrlcious corn

Representing the character of

carry his grandfather's sword which
was used in the Black-Hawk and
Seminole Wiars.
"New York, U. S. A., God's Country,"
is the inscription on a box of mer
chandise received in this state from
England. Yet President Wilson does
not base his authority on the "di
vine right" theory.
The second Liberty Loan has start
ed with a boom. Now is the time to
combine patriotism and profits in a
legitimate way by subscribing lor
some bonds.
Rewards or $50 have been offered
for deserters. And one may wonder
whether or not they are worth so
large a sum.
Our every-day, dialect Is always
changing and, in the midst of the
great international upheaval, our
peace phrases have been set aside to
make way Tor a new slang supplied
In the main from the trenches. Every
great war has added to our supply of
words. It is difficult to estimate yet
how great will be the present contri
bution. How many of the new words,
the slang of the trenches and the
catchwords of the press, will endure
after they have outlived their present
In the trenches the English "Tm
my" speaks of the enemy as "Fritz"
or "Hun," and he calls his French
comrade "Poilu," while the Americans
who are still behind the trenches are
being hailed as the "Sammies." True,
the Sammies dislike the name, but so
it was with the "Yanks" In the Civil
Then, aside from the nicknames
which have been more or less arbi
trarily adopted for the soldiers, there
has appeared a class of phrases orig
inating from trench warfare. "Over
the top" has a connotation which may
long be utilized by literary men in
picturing the scenes of the battle.
"No Man's Land" Is another famous
phrase which was adopted early In the
war. Along with these more Imag
inative phrases Is a group of technical
military terms which have come into
general usage as a result of their
constant recurrence in the news dis
patches. "Liquid fire," "curtain fire"
and "75" shells are examples of this
group. The fighters themselves have
given to us a few words which are
used commonly in the slang or the
day. We have not yet reached the
stage when we can speak or "strafing"
as the Britisher uses the word, but in
England it has become a common by
word. A teamster shouts "God strare
you" to his horse who balks or turns
a corner wrong. The "Boche" is the
trench name for the Huns. "Rosalie"
is the pet name for the bayonet, while
airplanes and shells which are use
less are referred to as "duds."
In America we who cannot be with
our Allies "overseas" are "doing our
bit." possibly by "Hooverizing." Our
"conscripts" are "mobilizing" at the
"cantonments." Our "hyphenated"
citizens are encouraging the "paci
fists" to pro-German activities. Our

street, the short street in front of the
University library, is a black mark
upon Columbia's excellent system of
street paving. In bad weather It is
almost Impossible lor a vehicle of any
kind to get within a block of the
the library entrance. If the property
owners along this street are not in
terested enough to take the matter in
hand, the city should act without de

Expressing Money in Terms of Shoes
When a man leaves this store with a purchase, he has in his
possession the same value as he had when he entered our doors.
The only difference is that the value is now expressed by shoes
instead of dollar bills.
That is the standard of value rendered here.
There is no such thing as obtaining greater value per dollar
than this store offers.
No concern in all the world can make the same grades of
shoes at less cost than they arc made by the manufacturers who
supply us.
No store can buy at less cost than we do.
No store can give greater value per dollar than we do.
There should be harmony among
subject, copy, type, paper and ink in
all good printing. Only by careful
attention to details can this harmony
be obtained. You'll not regret plac
your order for printing where details
are given this careful attention.
