Roosevelt Makes Attack on Haskell [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 10 March 1909
ROOSEVELT MAKES ATTACH ON HASKELL In 3000-Word Message, the President Scores Governor of Oklahoma. PERSONAL ASSAULT ON BRYAN Asks Democratic Leader to Contrast His Action With That of Taft. WASHINGTON, Sept. 24. President Roosevelt, in a statement 3,000 words long, today voices an entirely new set of charges against Gov. Haskell. It is a typical Roosevelt document. “Now contrast your actions in this case of Governor Haskell,” says the President, “with Mr. Taft’s action as regards Senator Foraker, as set forth in his letter of July 20, 1907, which I quoted in my statement.” According to the President, this letter was submitted to him a year ago and then mailed. There is nothing on record from Mr. Taft to show that he wrote it nor is the testimony given of anyone who received it. It now bobs up in the President’s files, ready to exculpate Taft after a Foraker compact had been made in Ohio to help carry the State, a compact broken only when the Archbold letters transformed Foraker from...

Blackboards Are Menace to Health [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 29 March 1909
BLACKBOARDS ARE MENACE TO HEALTH Dr. W. McN. Miller Tells of Harm Done by Chalk Dust in Class Rooms. CHARCOAL A SUBSTITUTE Students and Faculty Should Be Protected by Using Paper Tablets. Blackboards in the lecture room should be discarded and large tablets of paper should be installed in their places to protect the health of the students and faculty, is the opinion of Prof. Walter McNab Miller, professor of pathology and bacteriology in the University of Missouri. “I am in favor,” said Prof. Miller yesterday, “of abolishing the blackboards. The rooms in Academic hall and other buildings are crowded and are poorly ventilated. In addition to this the chalk-dust is just as unhealthy as any other kind of dust, and its inhalation predisposes to pulmonary tuberculosis, or consumption. “I know of no better way of avoiding this dust than to substitute in place of the blackboards large tablets of paper, the sheets of these tablets may be torn off and burned.

Unruly Plant Wouldn't Sleep [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 29 March 1909
UNRULY PLANT WOULDN’T SLEEP Dr. W. L. Howard Accidently Finds a Way to Force Blossoms. While trying to put plants to sleep by anesthetics, Dr. W. L. Howard at the Department of Horticulture at the University of Missouri, found that they awaken quickly afterward and are livelier than ever. Recently Dr. Howard placed a slip cut from the golden bell in a large jar with ether. After the plant had absorbed the ether twenty-four hours, the slip was taken out and the stem placed in water. Instead of sleep for weeks as he expected, the plant began to bloom. The discovery, Dr. Howard says, is useful in forcing plants to blossom in the greenhouse when blooms are scarce and high priced.
Salome Dance at Chicago U [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 29 March 1909
SALOME DANCE AT CHICAGO U. Co-eds See “Artistic” Performance at the D. K. E. House. CHICAGO, March 10. There is much speculation in Chicago University as to whether the faculty will take any action regarding a Salome dance which was staged recently by the fraternity men at the Delta Kappa Epsilon house. Pliny Munger, Jr., was “Salome,” and, while he writhed and wiggled through the “artistic” dance, a score of co-eds, perched on boxes outside the window, giggled at the performance. The university is considerably wrought up over the performance and it has been suggested that Pliny repeat the performance before the faculty in order to show that it is well within the bounds of “art,” as expounded by Gertrude Hoffmann and other Salomers.
