Track Tigers Whip K. U. by 40 Points [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 14 September 1908
TRACK TIGERS WHIP K. U. BY 40 POINTS Missouri Takes Ten Firsts in Eleven Events-Score 62 1-3 to 22 2-3. STEELE SETS NEW RECORD Miller Wins the Pole Vault After Spraining Ankle-Tipton’s Fine Run. Taking first place in all of the eleven events except the mile race, the Tigers at Kansas City Friday night kept untarnished the slate of Missouri’s victories over the Kansas Jayhawkers in the annual indoor track meets. The score was: Missouri. 62 1-3; Kansas. 22 2-3. It was the most decisive victory the wearers of the Old Gold and Black have ever scored over Kansas in track athletics. The victory was the more pleasing to Missourians from the fact that Kansas went into the meet confident of winning. Coach Hagerman had predicted that his charges would take the measure of the Missourians by at least nine points. But the Tigers were out to get revenge for the defeats in football and basketball, and they got it. A handful of Missouri “rooters” hardly fifty in all cheered the Tigers as they piled...

TOO MUCH COLOR IN “OLEO”? A Federal Revenue Here to Investigate Boarding Houses. R. M. Love of St. Louis, a United States revenue agent was in Columbia last Thursday and Friday to investigate the butter and oleomargarine served in the various boarding houses here. Mr. Love was also investigating a charge that the oleomargarine served in some placed in Columbia was colored and in that way served as butter. A report will be made to the commission. F. L. Austin, secretary of the State Dairy association said today: “I knew that a federal revenue agent was in Columbia last week investigating the oleomargarine sold here but I do not know what were the results of his investigations.” He visited the fraternity houses to ascertain whether they came under the oleomargarine tax. He asked the matrons such questions as: “Do the boys know that they are not eating real butter but colored oleomargarine?” “Are they charged a stipulated sum for their board or is the expense shared?”
Some other School, Perhaps [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 14 September 1908
SOME OTHER SCHOOL, PERHAPS Prof. Hinton Knows Nothing of a New Law Professor Here. The American Law School Review in a recent issue published the following: “Chester G. Vernier has been appointed Professor of Law in the University of Missouri. Last season Mr. Vernier taught in the University of Indiana School of Law, taking the place of Prof. Beeler, who was on a year’s leave of absence. Mr. Vernier is a graduate of Liberty, Indiana, high school; Butler College (A. B. 1903); University of Chicago (Ph. D. 1904); University of Chicago Law School (J. D. cum laude. 1907). Mr. Vernier will teach the subjects of criminal law, criminal procedure and domestic relations in the University of Missouri.” “There must be a mistake, somewhere,” said Prof. E. W. Hinton of the Department of Law today after he had read the article. The article must refer to some other university. I have not heard of a new professor coming to the Department of Law here.”
Kisses Close Girls' School [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 14 September 1908
KISSES CLOSE GIRLS’ SCHOOL Osculatory Greetings Cause Tonsillitis at Wells College. ITHACA, N. Y., March 29. The habit of the girls of Wells college on Cayuga lake, near here, of saluting each other with kisses is supposed to have been at least partly responsible for the spread of tonsillitis, which caused the closing of the college yesterday for the spring vacation a week earlier than usual. There are 175 girls at Wells college, and, like the young women of any other college, they are wont to greet each other affectionately with kisses every time they meet.
His Praise for Dr. Monilaw [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 14 September 1908
HIS PRAISE FOR DR. MONILAW The Work of the Athletic Coach Commended by Hetherington. “The magnificent victory of the Missouri track team was due, I believe, primarily to the coaching of Dr. W. J. Monilaw,” said Dr. C. W. Hetherington, director of athletics, today. “By hard and persistent work he moulded a most unusual team from practically raw material. Every man who went to Kansas City was absolutely in the pink of condition, as the result of perfect training. Too much credit cannot be given to Dr. Monilaw in connection with the track victory over Kansas.”

Legislators Used Hog Cholera Serum [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 14 September 1908
LEGISLATORS USED HOG CHOLERA SERUM A Demonstration for Members of General Assembly at State Farm Saturday. THE LAW-MAKERS CAME Spent the Morning at the State Farm and Visited Other Departments. The use of the new hog cholera serum discovered by Dr. J. W. Connaway, professor of comparative medicine, was demonstrated to ten members of the General Assembly who visited the University Saturday. Two of the legislators experimented with the serum on hogs at the state farm and learned from Dr. Connaway the details in its use. With the delegation were Matt Hall, former warden of the state penitentiary, and two clerks. All expressed their satisfaction with the work that is being done by the College of Agriculture. He’d Quit the Law. The delegation visited all of the agricultural buildings. First they inspected the corn exhibit in the agricultural building. “If I could raise corn like this,” said one of the legislators, “I would quit the law making business.” After visiting the horticulture bu...
Student Seer is Popular with Girls [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 14 September 1908
STUDENT SEER IS POPULAR WITH GIRLS No Time for a Read Hall Fortune Teller to Prepare Her Lessons. SHE CHARGES FIVE CENTS But Patrons Come All the Time and They Desire to Know Everything. “If you are able to tell fortunes either by cards or by palmistry, conceal your knowledge. Cover it up-do anything except spread it broadcast if you value your time.” The foregoing is the advice of one of the girls who lives at Read hall. She says she wishes that she had followed it herself. “Since the girls learned that I can tell fortunes, they bothered me almost to death trying to get me to tell theirs,” she said this morning. “At first I thought it was great fun, but when they began to take up the time that I needed to study, I saw that something would have to be done about it. To put a stop to it, I told them I was going to charge five cents for every fortune I told. Instead of stopping them it had exactly the opposite effect, and now I am wondering who the joke is on. There are some of them co...
A College Rally in St. Louis [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 14 September 1908
A COLLEGE RALLY IN ST. LOUIS Copies of the University Missouri Distributed to High School Students. The University of Missouri shared with the University of Michigan the honors of the college rally at Yeatman High School in St. Louis last Wednesday afternoon. The college rally was in charge of the St. Louis chapter of the associated collegiate alumni. Stereopticon pictures were shown to about 600 students in the auditorium of the high school. Through the interest of Miss Hattie Greensfelder, now an attorney in the Commonwealth Trust building in St. Louis, an alumnus of the University of Missouri, copies of the University Missourian were distributed to students of the high school. “I may frankly say,” writes Miss Greensfelder, “that the receipt of these papers made a most pleasing impression on the students and afforded an excellent advertisement for the University.”

French Novels 'Too Shocking' [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 14 September 1908
FRENCH NOVELS “TOO SHOCKING” So Girls in Senior Class at Berkeley Went on Strike. BERKELEY, Cal., March 29. Twenty young women of the senior class at the University of California went on strike (and gained their point) when they discovered that the French novels assigned to them for reading in connection with their French lessons were “too shocking.” They declared they would give up the study entirely if the novel feature was not stricken from the course. The girls sent a delegation to their instructor, Prof. S. A. Chambers, and called his attention to some of the books to which they objected. The list included Balzac, Zola, De Maupassant, Dumas, Junior and Augier. The fair complainants stated that these tales were “entirely too ‘racy.’” They would not take French if they were required to read about affinities and French heroines of the Zaza type. Prof. Chambers, after considerable deliberation, decided to substitute as a compromise in the special course Marcel Prevost, Anatole Fran...
