For the League of Nations.
Editor the Missourian: Any man
who tries to mould public opinion
against tbe League of Nations is pav
ing the way to another deluge of
blood and a sacrifice of life and prop
erty. That man has a coldblooded nature
and a heart of stone, rather than a
heart of sympathy and love for his
fellow-men. He would not welcome
the day when all nations, languages
and tongues would unite in the wor
ship of the one living and true God.
What should be done with a man
whom God had created as a leader of
men and given the talent of oratory,
of a man whom the people of Missouri
have honored with the exalted posi
tion of United States senator, when he
uses his talent and his eloquence of
speech to hypnotize and lead astray
weaker minds from the League of
He should be cast into the outer
darkness where there is weeping and
wailing and gnashing of teeth! This
will be done at the first opportunity
by the voters of Missouri.
This is a question that enters every
home In the land and that deeply
concerns every man, woman and child.
We must enter a League of Nations,
or we must support an enormous army
at the expense of the taxpayers. The
plan unquestionably is for an advance
of civilization, and is a step which
should be taken at the earliest pos
It would go far toward making
peace for the world and, if it does not
make war impossible, it will make It
very unpleasant for the instigator.
It may not eliminate war entirely, but
it will reduce the chance of war in the
future and start the world on a new
era of peace, prosperity and guaran
There is not a provision in the
twenty-six articles which restricts a
legitimate rght of any sovereign na
tion or proposes a hardship on any
one. The League of Nations, as unani
mously agreed upon by a special com
mission of the Peace Conference made
up of representatives of the United
States and other countries, consists of
a body of delegates and an executive
council whose duty will be to arbi
trate differences arising' between na
tions, and, if possible, to prevent hos
tilities. It also provides that the states not
members of the league will be invited
to Join. If any member of the league
breaks the provisions of the covenant,
that state shall be immediately sub
jected to the severance of all trade,
financial and social relations with
other members of the league or with
any state whether a member of the
league or not.
We are happy to see former Presi
dent Taft raising his voice in aid of
the League of Nations and doing all
he can to assist President Wilson in
the adoption of this national and im

Editor the Missourian: The state
ment was made in the Missourian the
other night that the S.G.A. Council
had voted to open up the ballot for
the festival queen to all women stu
dents in the University. The reason
stated was that the influenza situa
tion made it impossible for some girls
to pay their dues last semester.
As a matter of fact ove 400 of the
573 women eligible for S.G.A. privi
lege paid their dues last semester, a
larger percentage, by the way, than
has ever paid before.
Several weeks before the petitions
began to be circulated for festival
queen a motion was made and car
ried in the woman's council depriving
any girl who had not paid her S.G-A.
dues from the right of voteing. The
other day, after the petitions were
started, the council voted to retract
the previous motion. The reasons,
therefore, are obvious.
Just this small friction has put the
election of the queen on such a basis
that practically all honor of victory
is taken away. The queen should be
chosen first for the ideals for which
she stands insofar as they are the ex
pression of the best ideals of the stu
dent body; second, for her popularity
and gracious appearance. She should
be chosen as the University woman
who stands for the finest in scholar
ship, social life and particularly in
ideals. She should be the true rep
resentative of the student body. How
many of the girls who are to vote
Monday are going to think of that?
They are going to think what part
each candidate had in causing the va
riation of motions in the council
and vote accordingly.
Soon there are to be more student
elections. The same trouble will
arise, no doubt, and the merits of the
candidates will become second to the
politics involved. Seems to me that
the only sensible and just thing to
do Is for an amendment to be made
to the constitution, formulated In
the council and voted upon by the
whole student body, which will for
ever settle the status and require
ments of the voter at student elec

car of rare charm
YOUR first impression of this present day Maxwell as it
passes you on the street is one of decided beauty.
Your first ride in it, whether at the wheel or in the
tonneau, tells you of its rare charm.
B.ut after six months you find a new admiration for the
Maxwell. You find it shuns the repair shop, that it runs and
runs and runs and never stops running.
Then after a year is past you develop an enthusiasm for it
that dictionary words don't seem to fully describe.
And then after you have had it for more than the average
life of a motor car and you find it far better than even the
Maxwell salesman said it was you search for the reason.
This is what you find:
For 5 years Maxwell cars have been built on the single
chassis plan. To date 300,000 have been turned out on this
plan. Each car better than the other. Each one better look
ing than the other.
There have been more than 1000 refinements in the
Maxwell, but never once have the Maxwell executives swerved
from the original program.
You conclude that reliability was designed "into" the car
and built "into" it, and that a policy of 300,000-all-alike is the
soundest kind of reason for writing your check for a present
