This ear there is a lack of funds. The

own shoulders. The University will of

only by giving money but by showing stu

to make the day a success.
The attitude of Columbians will have

.MISSOURI'S BLANKET BALLOT
When the Boone County voter went to
the polls today, he was confronted with a
ballot some two feet wide and more than
three feet long. Besides having had to
vote for candidates for twenty-eight offi
ces, he was supposed to give the three
proposed constitutional amendments and
seventeen other propositions his careful
consideration and vote. To do all of this
each voter would have had to be in the
election booth at least fifteen minutes.
As long as voters are required to pass
upon so many offices, it will not be possi
ble for them to make an intelligent
choice. Some of these offices are impor
tant and others are unimportant. The
combination of the two merely confuses
the voter and at the same time increases
the power of political machines, which
profit by the ability to trade and bargain
for the popular choice of a large number
in the -nake-up of a slate. To provide
of insignificant officials does not increase,
but on the contrary, diminishes the power
of the voter. A long array of elective of
fices means control by the few rather
than by the many. Popular control may
belter be secured by adjusting the num
ber of offices so that the requirements of
the candidates for each position may be
carefully scrutinized, and the most dis
criminating choice be made.
The sound principle is that the people
should selact all officers concerned with
the formulation of public policies but
that they need not choose men engaged
primarily in the administration of poli
cies. The making of law may be parti
san, but the enforcement of it should be
Unless the short ballot is adopted in
Missouri and elsewhere, it U not likely
that any nominating system will work
with satisfaction to the electorate.

the sido of the road sometimes," he told,
"but it never gels above our windows, be
cause we're below the road far enough
away to avoid the heavy drifts from the
hill." They call them hills there, but to
Missourians they are mountains. Mr.
Allen said he did the same thing when
he first came to the country.

MAGAZINE COVER GIRL
IS SWEET AND GIRLISH
TYPE OF LOVELINESS
"The Girl I Love's on a Magazine Cov
er ran the title of a song several years
ago. Whoever wrote that line could have
loved several girls, and magazine covers
have not changed since then.
There is the girt with hair so veil
that it could come only from Scandina
vian ancestry or the peroxide bottle. Her
eyes are brown and her eyelashes would
gain her an honest livelihood if they were
photographed for advertising purposes.
The golden haired girl with her lapis
iaruli eyes stares from the front row of
the magazines, in competition with her
brown haired rivals. The color of the
hair and eyes is really all that differen
tiates one head from another. The fea
tures are always pure classic Whoever
saw a pug-nosed magazine-cover girl?
The lips are a perfect cupid's bow; the
teeth, pearls of rare beauty; the com
plexions, pink-and-white perfections' of
babyhood, miraculous, preserved until
later youth. The eyes, blue or brown,
(other shades are not found; perhaps
the iour-color process doesn"t print them
well) are wistful, always looking for
something they haven't got. x- j .
The cover of one current periodical
is different. The girl, the work of an'il
lustrator recently famous for his masks,
is a Spanish senorita with midnight hair
and a 'swarthy skin. She is the incarna
tion of evil, insidiously alluring, with a
face like one of the masks her 'author
There are two other types of pictorial
cover, the narrative and the caricature.
The former is often humorous and is
found on papers read by men and boys.
It tells a story appropriate to the sea
son of April Fool pranks and Fourth of
July celebrations; of Thanksgiving din
ners and Christmas trees.
The caricature cover is found only on
the smartest publications. It is a swirl
of color against which great ladies lead
abnormally elongated Russian wolf
hounds; or important papas take their
pearl-armored families to the opera. The
cover ladies of these magazines hate
hands more slender than a toothpick and
one wonders where they buy their per
fectly fitting shoes and gloves. They
view the world from narrowed eyes, dis
daining all that is unlike themselves.
On one November periodical is seen
the leading character of a nineteenth-
century novel. Another magazine used
copies of well-known paintings as covers
for a while, but evidently the plan did
not sell itself or the ever popular Amer
ican beauty has been adopted fgain.
