THEY ALL LEABX AT STEPHENS JIany "Ducks" of State One Ability to College Swimming Pool. ' If you meet a girl in the Ozarks whose swimming you particularly ad mire, and ask her where she learned to swim, it is probable she will say she learned at the Stephens College swimming pool in Columbia. In St. Louis you might easily put the same question to another girl 'and get the same answer. The Stephens College swimming pool has been, in the two years of its existence, the starting of many of Missouri's expert swim mers. It is not a large pool only 46 by 20 feet but it is kept busy all day and part of the night. This semester there are seven sections of the swimming but last semester six girls won their ducks in four. The members of the Duck Club are given special instruc tions by experts in fancy diWng and swimming. This.year Ralph Teed,...

1 4 tk JASPER COUNTY PRODUCES LEAD, ZINC AND STUDENTS Jasper County is a land flowing with milk and honey and tobacco juice. It is a land where prosperity, southern Ozark spirit and mining camp life mingle in a picturesqueness that ap peals. But through all the primitive ear marks of "boom" that are to be seen in the busy mining district, a leaning for culture and refinement is made manifest and is the more noticeable because it is, perhaps, less expected. More than eighty students from Jasper County are now attending the University. In this indication of cul tural aspiration, Jasper County com pares favorably with the more metro politan territory around St. Louis and Kansas City. The kind of culture that Jasper County has a hankering for is not "cultuah" the homely, southern Mis-j the Globe, Gentry Daggy and Homer souri unaffectedness is proof against Dye, Jr., now in the School of Jour that and it isn't the notorious "kul-! nallsra, and Harvey Evans, all got tur" kind, for the lea...

IE"-- Fae Six EARLY CHRISTIANS THOUGHT 40 HOURS ENOUGH FOR LENT Lent is still spoken of as a season 01 lasting, ana once meant lorty hours of fasting, and not forty days. The early Christians kept a strict unbrok en'fast for forty hours from the after noon of Crucifixion Day to the morn ing or the Feast of the Resurrection. In 840 Lent was proclaimed by the Xlcean Council to mean forty days, from Ash Wednesday to Holy Satur day, Sundays not included. This de cree resulted from the likeness of Lent and the fast which Christ ob served in the wilderness after he was baptized by John, and the forty days spent by Moses and Ellas in the wild- erness and the forty days' grace giv en in the preaching of Jonah to Nine- nh. The Greek church observes four Lents each year. These periods are kept with absolute strictness. There it no meat eating, no party giving, and no diversions of any kind. Many Greeks never taste meat except on J two days in the year, Easter and New Year's. The Roman Catholi...
