' SUPERVISED RECREATION
One of the greatest heritages of the hu
man race is the instinct of play. If it
vrere not for pla), life would be dull
indeed. But play to be beneficial in the
ling run, must be regularized and s)s
Kmatized. A human being can over-pla)
ju't as be can over-work.
In some of the larger cities playground
are maintained at the expense of the tax
jj)ers. Tliee pla) grounds are in charge
cf men and women trained in the super
vision or recreation. Through such means,
the mt beneficial recreation is afforded.
Eduratcrs are beginning to see the need

tems of supervision are adopted from tirjte
In some of the rural schools of Boone
County, and in the elementary schools of
Columbia, recreation is supervised by
capable members of the teaching staff.

them the most pleasure and at the same
lime improve the health.

THE STRAIGHT BALLOT
To the average voter his party is always
right. It is to him a divine tool that never
otaiers or weakens, tending to make the
country great and properous. Whenever
his parly is beaten the voter becomes con
vinred that the Nation is in danger of a
breakdown, and that the victorious party
is unfit to govern.
President Harding, himself, set an un
dignified example of narrow politics for
the average citizen to follow when he said
that he "would lose his respect for the
people of New Jersey if the)' l'd not re
elect Senator Frtlinghuysen." Such a
statement by the head of the nation de
serves severe criticism. It might even be
regarded as an insult to the people of
New Jersey. Have not the New Jerseyites
good reasons of their own to re-elect or

Columbia persons have strange fancies
when it comes to naming their cars, and
manv weird combinations result. A name
for a car does not seem worthy of much
meaning, but to many people tne name
of the car s)mbolizes a fond hope, a vis
ion, or the name of ? dear friend.
