cold shower at 2:30 a. m. and I had
to wait two hours before I got to bed."
Everyone at the camp is in good
spirits, according to Mr. McCowen
and Lieutenant Francis W. Osborne,

ing of Columbia's new hotel, the Daniel
Boone Tavern. Th first event on the

Governor Gardner and try to persuade
the chief executive to come over for
the banquet. Invitations to Judge
John F. Philips of Kansas City, for
j ears Judge of the United States Dis

to make no charge for the assembly
dance this week.
A YARX FAMINE HERE
Lack of Material Slops Work of Many
Columbia Knitters.
There is a yarn famine in Columbia
today and the women who would knit
regret the lack of something to knit
with. The local Red Cross is con
stantly replenishing its stock for its
members but no organization It at
tending to the demands of the many
people who arc unaffiliated with yarn
supplying sources. Should the entire
body of university women concentrate
upon knitting as their share in war
work, the result of their labors would
be no small bit, but it is impossible to
use their efforts until some one has
solved this very vital problem of ac
quiring yarn.

'Yesterday's issue of the Kansas City

portunity for service offered, is what
impelled Doctor Waters to give up a
life work In which he had been con
spicuously successfull. In addressing
nearly 330,000 families every week
through this farm newspaper he felt
he would) bo carrying on his work on
a far more extensive scale than was
possible before. The Star congratu

"The opportunity to get into close,
intimate touch with the farm families
in this great region appealed to me
as nothing else could," said Doctor
'Waters. "I love the genuine sober
people of the Middle West, and I feel
that, a man can have no greater
privilege than, as editor of a great
paper, like the Weekly Star, to co
operate with these men and women for
the bc-jt interests of American in
dustry and American democracy."
