THE MODEKN ENGINEER
The engineer Is generally consid
ered a man of mechanical ability, one
who can erect tall skyscrapers and
build steel bridges, but who " Is not
supposed to take an active part In
public affairs. His duties have been
regarded more as technical than pro
fessional, more legislative than ex
ecutive. But the modern world calls for
more than this from the engineer.
As one writer has said, one of the
great needs of business today Is more
managers of engineering education.
An urgent appeal that more engineers
may develop themselves into com
mercial executives is sounded by this
As Dean E. J. McCaustland or tne
School of Engineering said in a re
cent address before the Engineers'
Club of St. Louis, the relation which
engineers as professional ' men bear
to modern systems of business will
depend upon the degree to which they
individually develop a professional
consciousness. The engineer who
would attain a place as a commercial
executive must not only be mechan
ically efficient; he must also maintain
an ideal which calls for efforts di
rected toward the use and benefit of
mankind. Along with a practical
mind he must "have the courage and
the good sense to examine carefully
into the possible ultimate results of
his policies and activities, and he
must look forward with enthusiasm
and assurance to their consumma
tion." The entrance of the United States
Into the great world war places upon
the shoulders of the engineer prob
lems in leadership and executive
ability that have never been entrusted
to him before. Great problems In
transportation over land and sea re
main to be solved, and countless
changes In fighting equipment and
methods call for the best in him In
the struggle against German ef
ficiency. May the modern engineer
emerge triumphant in this struggle
of brains and brawn.
A. WAR COUNCIL FOR COLUMBIA
In the three words-organization,
co-operation, centralization is ex
pressed the essence of effective and
efficient work in any great undertak
ing. To aggressively prosecute the
war with Germany unparalleled au
thority was requested by President
Wilson of the last Congress to be
vested in him. Democracy is a poor
war maker ordinarily, but under the
President's guiding hand It is dis
proving that accusation and the end
has justified his demands.
With equal force the centralization
of power and the co-ordination of
energies applies to state and local In
stitutions during the war. Organiza
tion is the outward expression of in
dividual desire to achieve results for
the good of a cause. Co-operation
marks the spirit of those Joining the
society who strive with sympathetic
feeling for the objects of the organi
zation. Similarly, centralization is
Indicative of the unified attitude or
the organizations themselves to cor
relate their endeavors.
A council made up of one or two
representatives from the numerous
and various patriotic societies, clubs,
rircles. coteries, organizations "and
associations would enable the Integral
parts of the war machinery to operate
with greater ease and simplicity and
less duplication of effort. There are
special duties for the Red Cross, the
Y. M. C: A., the Y. W. C. A., the war
savin ea certificates association, the
county defense council, the charity
organizations and others which could
best be arranged and co-ordinated In
a composite committee.
Why hot a 'war council for Colum
bia? SANTA CLAUS
Certainly never was there a person
so well known as Santa Claus, who
yet was so elusive. He has more
alibis than any criminal. There have
beln people who have claimed they
have seen him. but when you pin
them right down to the issue, they all
admit that what they saw might have
been an impostor and investigation
always shows that this is true since
how can Santa Claus be In so many
places at once?
Nobody knows Just how old he is,
either. It seems to depend on the
age of the person who is thinking
about him. When one is a child, he
is old, very old. His beard drags
in the snow, and he knows all the
things that children of all ages have
liked. Sometimes, Santa Claus takes
tho form of a woman Instead of a man
for those who love him. That is Just
one of his cunning alibis. Sometimes
he is not a very old man at all he is
suddenly young, with excellent taste
And sometimes, to the very old,
Santa Claus becomes a little golden
haired child. He is most changeable,
yet most fixed. He is as old as time,
as young as the very dawn. He is a
baby, a young lover, a .beautiful lady.
But always he Is the essence, the
Innermost heart of Christmas Spirit.
A hint to University students when
they go home for the holidays fcoost
for Farmers' Week. The farmers
need more than usual the Inspiration
and help which can bo got from the
week spent here In January. Help
the University and the farmers of
your community at the same time.
Next week the Red Cross will put
on its nation-wide drive for members.

citizenship of our country under its

draw caricatures of the American
soldiers but he won't be able to make
them feel like cartoons as their drill
masters probably did at first.
State Fuel Administrator Wallace
Crossley took all of the oy out of the
youngster's life when he said that no
school shall be allowed to close be
cause of the coal shortage.
Every single case of contagious
disease which arises in Columbia's
public schools is an additional and
extremely good argument for medical
inspection In the schools.
While discussing the latest fash
ions, we might Inquire what Is the
newest style of revolution.
If necessary to prevent profiteering
the Government should not hesitate
The same snow that covers your
walk covers the farmers' wheat, so
what's the use of growling.
