Carl Whitmer, director of the School of Music at Stephens College, says that Glee Club music is not up to the classical standard and therefore college girls should not be encouraged to hear it.

They have decided that the “cullud” youth, who “shoots craps” in the alley and is caught by the vigilant Columbia policeman, does not get a square deal when he is arraigned in police court the next morning; also that when “Sam Washington” and “George Lincoln” have one of their regular “scraps” or when “Rastus Johnson” has a noisy altercation with “Miss Angelina” that the hard-hearted police judge does not do the right thing. To insure the negroes who are unlucky enough to come under the strong arm of the law, a square deal, these kind-hearted Senior Law students have formed a committee to defend all negroes arraigned befo...

Students Are Too Free [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 20 October 1908
STUDENTS ARE TOO FREE Leaven of Military Training Needed, Col. H. L. Scott Believes. NEW YORK, Feb., 2. College students in this country have too much liberty, according to Col. H. L. Scott, commandant of West Point. In an address, Colonel Scott said: “The system is based largely on the German system without regard for the normal training of the student. This is going too far in the direction of liberality. The German student, as a rule, has had a military training earlier and habits and character already have been formed. The American boy, who has not had such formative training, should have the character formed for him and not be left to his individual caprice. The nation greatly needs larger leaven of military discipline.”

From last Wednesday’s results I believe that it will be necessary soon to provide additional quarters. The members prepare the luncheon on the basket picnic plan.
