OIL TRUST IS FREE Government Abandons Its Fight in $29,000,000 Fine Case. By United Press CHICAGO March 10.

COLUMBIA GROWING IN WHAT DIRECTION? Question to Be Considered in Locating New High School Building. BUSINESS MEN DIFFER Some Favor Retaining Old Site While Others Would Seek a New One. The citizens of Columbia are nearly equally divided on the subject retaining or discarding the present high school site for a new building, if the opinions of a dozen or more representative business men can be taken as a criterion.

The others believe that the center of the residence district is moving towards the north and northwest. R. B. Price, cashier of the Boone County National bank, believes that the town is grown south, southeast and southwest. The center of population, he says, may even now be as far south as Broadway. “I have nothing to say about the location...

Fully half of the fruit on the state farm was saved according to a statement made by Dr. W. L. Howard, who is doing the work. Pans similar to the old-fashioned cake pan with a pipe through the center is partly filled with petroleum.

Came 20,000 Miles to Attend University [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 29 March 1909
CAME 20,000 MILES TO ATTEND UNIVERSITY Val Nalty. Came 20,000 Miles to M. U. Val Nalty, Australian, Makes Long Trip for an Education. Traveling 700 miles to the coast of Australia, by donkey and camel team from the middle of the Australian desert, and working his way 20,000 miles over land and sea, are some of the experiences of Val Nalty, an Australian, in reaching the University of Missouri. Val Nalty enrolled at the beginning of the last semester. Eighteen months ago, Nalty was engaged in the photographic and gold speculating business in the desert gold fields of Australia. It had always been his ambition to get a college education. An education, similar to a free university education, in Australia would cost nearly $15,000, thus putting a college education above the heads of a majority of the people. It was from a brother of E. B. Miller, a student in the Engineering Department, that Nalty learned of the advantages offered by the American system of education, and especially by t...

And Harvard Too? [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 29 March 1909
AND HARVARD TOO? The School is Lagging Behind In Journalism, Says Magazine. The Harvard Magazine publishes a six-page article by its editor, Hans Von Kaltenborn, of the class of ’09, on “Harvard’s Sin of Omission.” In it the magazine outlines a plan of establishing a school of journalism at Harvard University. History is given of the growth of the movement for schools of journalism at Kansas, Wisconsin, Indiana, Virginia, Nebraska, Washington, Yale, Paris and Heidelberg. Special attention is given to the School of Journalism at the University of Missouri, of which a page of complimentary mention is made. “The special training,” says the magazine, “is bound to expand. Here is a great movement in which Harvard is lagging behind. What can be done to place her in the lead?” Following the magazine’s first argument for a school of journalism at Harvard there is published in the March issue an article on “The Harvard Daily Truth,” a vision, in which a daily newspaper is described as the la...

But It's Pennies That Count [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 29 March 1909
But It’s the Pennies that Count Parking Meters Are Big Business If you’ve ever had a piggy bank you know how long it takes pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters to add up-especially when you save for something special. But Columbia’s parking meters, unlike your piggy bank, have thousands of hands putting coins in. The money adds up so fast it keeps two men hopping to keep up with it. Patrolman Jesse Hughes, in charge, and Lewis Ashlock, meter repairman, work as a team to empty and keep the city’s 1,631 meters operating effectively. The daily “take”-the coins from one-third to one-fourth of the meters-weighs over 400 pounds. In 1967 the city’s gross receipts from the meters were $113,148.99-a significant slice of the annual revenue. Emptying the meters is only a small part of Hughes’ and Ashlock’s job. They also count, sack and deposit the money in the bank, make 30 to 40 service calls a day and overhaul meter mechanisms. Emptying the meters is only a small part of Hughes’ and Ashlock...
