Ruling on New Grades [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 20 October 1908

RULING ON NEW GRADES “I” Will Not Prevent Graduation of Engineers. The grade “I” will not prevent students in the Department of Engineering from completing the course, provided they have enough accumulated credits to discount the loss caused by the “I,” according to the action taken by the faculty of the department Saturday. If a student makes an “I” or better in all of the required subjects and has the necessary total numbers of hours, he will be graduated. That clause in the new grading system which provides that for the grade “E” the student will receive 30 percent additional credit, for an “S” 10 percent additional, for an “M” the normal amount, for an “I” 20 percent less than the normal, and for an “F” no credit was left for the departments to act on separately. The clause was approved by the engineering faculty Saturday.

The art of weaving rag rugs died in most parts of the country a century ago. But thanks to Shelley Byron Toalson, a chipper 74-year-old widower from Hallsville, the art is still very much alive in Boone County. Mr. Toalson weaves on a 600-pound ashwood loom that he has affectionately dubbed “Mighty Hercules.” He sighted the loom at an auction near Hallsville in 1926 and captured it with a bid of 25 cents. Some forty years later he admits, “It was a good buy.” He begins weaving operations by deftly unwinding spools of heavy cotton thread (left). The gigantic loom, when full threaded, is an intricate network of 190 strings (above). Toalson’s “rags” which are passed through the strings of the loom on a shuttle come from a wide range of sources-from materials as divergent as worn bedspreads and bath towels. Although he does not consider himself an enterprising entrepreneur, and weaves only as a hobby, Toalson turns approximately 175 three-foot throw rugs per year for a clientele in 11 s...

M. U. “Grads” in New York City How Alumni Have Prospered as Lawyers, Editors Financiers. Two are Professors Engineers Educated Here Are Solving Tunneling Problems. New York, May 3 -The organization of the New York Alumni association of the University of Missouri at the Hotel Lafayette called attention to the fact that among the 4,000 Missourians who have taken up a residence in the metropolis, the University is remarkably well represented, and that the sons of the State college are acquitting themselves wondrously well in the battle of life just where the firing is heaviest. It is not easy to succeed in New York, for here the pick of the country usually finds its way, sooner or later, and that the sons of old Missouri have given such a good account of themselves, speaks volumes for the state.

Foot Crushed under Train [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 22 October 1908

Foot crushed under train. Three of Turner Quinn's Toes Were Amputated After Accident. Turner P. Quinn, the 17-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. P. S. Quinn, of 404 Ann street, narrowly escaped losing his left foot and possibly his life by jumping from a Wabash passenger train about 700 yards beyond the station, yesterday morning. His foot struck the rail of a switch, causing him to fall on his left arm and knee. One of the wheels passed over his left foot. Three of the toes were so badly mashed that amputation was necessary. Young Quinn, with several companions, went to the train to see some of the high school students depart. They climbed on the train when it started. After the accident Quinn limped to Dr. James Gordon's office to have the foot dressed. He was then taken to the Parker Memorial hospital for the operation.
