BERS FILL FRATER.MTV PARLORS
Tho Nails In Wall Hold Soldier's En
tire Wardrobe.
Gone are the soft leather lounges
that once were the pride of University
fraternity houses.
Gone are the tables with the tiger
skins and ash trays; gone are the
deep chairs; gone are the rugs that
adorned polished floors.
Instead are rows of single iron beds,
each with a pair of Army blankets
folded according to regulations, each
with a suitcase or valise peeping from
beneath it, and each with two long
nails pounded Into the plastered wall
above it.
The fraternity houses those oi
them that have been taken over as
barracks are holding more menev
ery night than they ever did before,
even on the nights before or after a
Kansas game. Each bedroom holds
from three to six sleepers .while down
stairs the parlors and dining rooms
are crowded. One fraternity library
holds nearly 30 men. Xo furniture
is permitted except the beds.
All that a student soldier has ho is
supposed to put into the suitcase un
der his bed or hang on the two nails
over his bed. Some of the rooms
have deep closets with rows of hooks,
but these might as well not exist; S.
A. T. C. men are forbidden to use
them.
Along with his two blankets, each
man received a ticking to be filled with
straw, but few had any straw Tues
night night
Student lamps hardly. Study is
expected to be done evenings in Un!
versity class rooms under the super
vision of officers, or at odd times dur
ing the day in rooms on the campiis
thrown open for that purpose.
Eating at the Mess Hall (formerly
ine university commons) is now
compulsory for S. A. T. C. men. Un
til recently this was optional. In the
Mess Hall the tables and chairs or
dinarily used have been thrown out
in favor of bare board tables with long
seats nailed along each side.

If a club were formed after the war
of all subscribers to the Fourth Lib
erty Loan in Boone County it would
nave nistoric ana cosmopolitan as wen
as patriotic significance, said II. II.
Banks, chairman of the county com
mittee, this afternoon.
The oldest subscriber reported to
headquarters to date is Sallie Shad
rick, 103 years old. Her subscription
was $500. She lives in Strawn Dis

The only subscription from a for
eign country received at the Boone
County headquarters during the pres
ent campaign was $50 from J. B. Pow
ell, associate editor Millard's Review,
Shanghai, China. His subscrintfon
was received this morning. Mr. Pow
ell was formerly an instructor in the
School of Journalism of the University.
$20,000 a. Daj Needed.
"Ten more days will wind up the
campaign. Boone County will have
to raise $20,000 a day until it is over,
if we are going to fill our quota," said
Mr. Banks today.
"I wish everyone in Columbia and
Boone County could be made to real
ize that the list of Liberty Loan sub
scribers, together with the amounts
subscribed, will be filed and become a
matter of record after the war is over
"When the boys come back from
France and the various camps they
are going to be at the head of affairs.
They are going to fill the. positions
of trust and power within the next
few years. When they come back they
are going to have an opportunity by
referring to these records to know ex
actly who backed them up while the
were fighting for their country."
At a meeting of the executive com
mittee at Liberty Loan headquarters
last night the secretary was directed
to send letters to each delinquent dis
trict urging ffl it speed up Itscam
paign. A committee was appointed to
re-solicit persons who have bought
bonds but who are capable of buying
more. Other men will bs drafted to
give some of their time to help on this
committee.
Following is a list of the school dis
tricts in Boone County with the quota

URGES USE OF PERSIMMONS
County Food Administration Also Ha
Recipe for Watermelon Sjrup.
The County Food Administrators
of Missouri" are encouraging the use
of persimmons this year. This fruit
is commonly picked up by the o'pos
sums. dogs and hogs. Very little of
it has been used as raw fruit.
Now new uses are being brought
before the people. The fruit contains
31.7 per cent sugar and is desirable
for drying, for persimmon butter, mar
malade, cakes, bread and muffins. Di
rections for use are being distributed
to all food conservation workers.
Watermelons are also being put to
unique uses. In Jasper, Newton and
Dunklin counties persons are making
a new syrup from watermelons which
is a good substitute for sorghum. AH
the county papers are printing recipes
for this syrup and posters are being
put out with a bottle of the syrup at
tached. Camp Applications to Be Withdrawn.

quests that the men who have made
application to the Central Oificers'

to know. He is advertising to notify '
the unknown artilleryman that the E
manuscript will be published unless E
some objection is made soon.
A British airman found In a desert-
ed dugout which had been a gun posl-
tion, a roll of papers, on which are
written the things the writer dared E
not say to the woman he lod, for E
he did not know whether she returned E
nis love. He had met the American E
girl while he was on leave in Paris. E
There is the chance, of course, that E
the author may have been killed and E
will not be able to come forward to
claim his work. Lane feels, in that E
case, the dead officer's wish would
surely be to have his message of love E
conveyed to her by whom it was In- E
spired.
On some pages the yellow mud is E
disfiguring. On such a page the un- E
known has shown how he half decided
to tell his loved one over the tele- E
phone! that he adored her. E
"I have only to unhook the receiver." ,E
says he, "and to telephone to you. If 'E
I did, what would you say? A queer E
way to receive a proposal! At just(E
midnight to be roused from s'eep to E
hear a spectral voice saying, 'Is that Is
Miss ?' This is the man who has E
been with you all the evening, al- E
most every evening, in fact, of his E
leave In Paris. I called you up to jE
ask if you would marry me!" E
On another page, on which part of E
the writing is nearly obliterated by 'E
mud, he calls her his own Joan of E
Arc. "with your pale rose beauty and E
your Croix Rouge Americaine you lE
both answered the call of duty. YourjE
spirit is the same, though centuries '
divide you." E
Apart from its love interest the
manuscript tells vivid tales of gun
ner's fights.

Forgotlcn Ordinance Helps to Check

A Columbia ordinance, lately dis
