JONES SOUNDS WARNING
President Urges Alumni to
Help Get Funds Needed
to Keep Up School's
The biggest mass meeting in the his
tory of the University of Missouri was
held on Itollins field last night. Eight
thousand persons crowded into the south
bleachers and on the football field.
Cheers songs and speeches helped in
producing enthusiasm for today's game.
Old alumni became bojs and girls again
when they joined in the evening's frolics.
Business cares were forgotton and ev
eryone became a Missouri rooter.
In welcoming the visiting alumni.
President J. C Jones said that the suc
cess of an educational institution de
pended upon the lojalty of its" student
body and alumni.
"No one who is present here tonight
can doubt the lojaltj of the alumni of
the Univcrsitj of Missouri," he said,
"ar.d as long as c have such lojalty as
this our University will remain a lead
er of educational institutions in the Mid
Iieferring to the program of expansion
which has been launched by the Board
of Curators in the proposed appropria
tion. President Jones appealed to the
alumni and present students to do their
utmost in working for the appropriation.
He sounded a warning to his auditors
that unless the University was granted
the desired financial assistance, it would
sink to the rank of a second class institu
tion. Representative Oak Hunter of Mober-
I), a member of the class of 1900, told
of his intention to organize an M men's
association to be composed of all former
and present letter men of the University.
Mr. Hunter was president of the M men
at a banquet in the Y. M. C A. Building
last night. He plajed right guard on
the football team in 1898.
Burton Thompson, an alumnus from
New iork Cit, described the first foot
ball team the University ever had. It
was in 1890, he said, and the first game
was plajed with Washington University
at St. Louis. The Tigers lost 28 to 0
but the defeat only made them more de
termined to put football on a sound la
sis in the University.
Speeches were also made by George
C Wilson, who organized the first Thun
dering Thousand in 1913, Ted Hackney,
a member of the famous Koper football
team of 1909; Ccn. E. D. Smith who has
mis-d only five Missouri-Kansas foot
ball games since 1897," Earl Nelson,
"Bottles' Burris and "Satan Sanderson.
The program was closed by the annual
freshman cap burning. Sophomores
guarded a paper houe at the west end
of the field, but the freshmen succeeded
in breaking through and tearing down
the structure, starting a bonfire into
which the caps were thrown.
The lighting sjslcm was constructed
by students in the School of Engineering.
Over nine miles of wire and 500 bulbs
were used. Current was supplied by a
separate power plant. The cost of the
apparatus was about $1400.
