Missouri Law Provides That
Right of Representation
Be Recognized
Overseeing of Schools Is
Public Housekeeping Mrs
W E Harshe Says
House Bill 207 under the laws ap
plicable to common schools provides
that section 10847 of Chapter 106 of
the Revised Statutes of Missouri for
1S09 be amended by striking out the
words and qualified voter as found
between the words tax payers and
of in the third line of said section
and by inserting the word her be
tween the word his and or in the
fifth line of said section and by add
ing the words and who shall have
resided in this State for one year next
preceding his her or their election
or appointment and shall be at least
21 years of ace
This bill passed by the Missouri
Legislature means that women may
lecaily be elected members of the
school boards Joplin and other
cities in Missouri have women on their
school boards but so far no women
candidates have been nominated In Co
lumbia The Civic League intended to
nominate a woman to run in the re
cent election but decided not to sup
port a candidate until later
Mrs Jessie E Wrench a member
of the Civic League when asked about
the desirability of having a woman
member on the Columbia School
Board said The needs of children
naturally appeal to women more than
men There are some especially
trained women here who are more
capable of judging the needs of
schools than the avefage business
man It is no more than a fundamen
tal right that women be represented
on any public board It Is decidely
undemocratic to give the fathers rep
resentation and not the mothers Men
look for economy In money matters
while women think more of the health
and general welfare of the child
Mrs W E Harshe president of the
Civic League said Since the womans
counsel of the child in the home is
so important there is no reason why
her counsel would not be equally im
portant in the management of the
schools The overseeing of the
schools is essentially public house
keeping and housekeeping is a
womans work The man Is too often
tempted to sweep the dust behind
the door and neglect the dirt in the
corners Womans natural thorough
ness and concern for children would
be an asset to any school board
President L W St Clair Moss of
Christian College said In many
places even where women have no
political status they have been elect
ed to membership on the school
boards and have proved their worth
by invaluable service In this age of
equal educational oppcVtunitles for
the two sexes when women are mak
ing good in all lines of business and
holding difficult administrative po
sitions there seems no reason why
women should not serve on school
boards Especially should this- be
true of Columbia
As the home is the primary unit
of society and its ideal government
Is secured through the co operation
of both husband and wife so it would
seem all other human Institutions
can be best governed by the co-operation
of men and women Why should
not women be represented on the
board which controls the education
of the youth of the community when
75 per cent of the teachers of this
country are women
The two baseball games with West
minster College on Friday and Satur
day April 5 and C will open the spring
sport season for the University of
Missouri They are scheduled for 3
oclock Admission will be 25 cents
with an extra charge of 10 cents for
grand stand seats
The Tigers may play the Camp
Funston team on one or both of the
two open dates still remaining on the
schedule as negotiations are still
under way to effect this project Mis
souri is allowed 18 games and has
only 1G scheduled so far
Thursday Friday and Saturday
April 11 12 and 13 will witness con
tests with Ames on both the diamond
and the track Baseball games will
be played on Thursday and Friday
afternoons while the third game will
be played Saturday morning because
of the track meet In the afternoon
The track meet will be the fifth
annual dual meet between Missouri
and Ames Missouri has won three
out of the last four meets Ames won
the first meet in 1914 by the score of
M to 62 Missouri won the next in
1915 Ly 72 to 53 Missouri won
the third in 1916 SO to 47 and 1n 1917
won again by the same score as In
191G Ames is known to possess an
exceptionally strong team this year
and the Tigers will be hard pressed
to win However the team is doing
as well as can be expected and Coach
Schulte believes his men stand a good
chance to win Wllkins who Is doing
twelve feet in the pole vault and
Cromer and Hawthorne in the distance
events are some of the mainstays of
the Ames team
Coach Schulte is trying hard to
round out his track team and thus
avoid putting too much work on a
few of the men who are good all
round performers The crying need
at present is for broad jumpers as
there Is scarcely a man on the team
now who can do better than twenty
feet in this event Any man in school
who has ever done work In this event
or who would like to try to accomp
lish something should come out and
receive instruction Only a short time
Is required for the workout each day
The Ames meet starts at 245 oclock
and the admission is 50 cents

for Services In Civil War
Irwin Nelson a graduate student in
the School of Medicine cherishes a
silver dollar now only half its orig
linal size perfectly smooth on both

given to Colonel E E Ellis then with
General Sherman as part payment
and the first he received for services
in the Civil War Colonel Ellis was
the grandfather of Mr Nelson Colo
nel Ellis was then in command of the
Twelfth Michigan Volunteers and at
the time of the cordial welcome of
this silver dollar he had in his pock
et only a half dollar He spent the
half dollar but kept the larger coin
as a mememto
Colonel Ellis carried the old coin
for years and a short time before his
death gave it to Mr Nelsons mother
who In turn gave it over to Irwin It
has been his pocket piece for the last
ten years
