Department Was Organized to Meet a
Growing Demand Upon the Part
o People of the State
Including in its scope 10 divisions
or sub-departments, the university ex-
tension service is administered undery
as many different heads. The divisions
are in charge of heads and sub-heads
of various departments of the univer-
sity and include a unique and compre-
hensive program of university exten-
The department of extension was or -
ganized to meet a growing demand on
the part of the state for such forms
of public service as may be legiti-
mately rendered by the state univer-
sity. The words of the university bul-
letin describe the extension service.
"It is generally recognized today
that the functions of a university in-
clude at least three definite lines of
endeavors its first duty is to teach
thoroughly and well the students upon
its campus; second to foster, as far
as may be, the spirit of research on
the part of the members of its various
faculties; third, to render to the state
at large such public service as may
lie within its power."
There is nothing new in the idea of
university extensicn. For more t an
a hundred years certain types of ex-
tension work have been in practice in
this cowltry and abroad. It is only
ithn very recent times, however,
thaat. university extension has begun to
tale donite form and character for
state andd ot1er universities as far as
the content and administration of the
work are concerned.
In some universities the extension
work 4s carried on by a special fac-
ulty which is necessarily distinct from
the regular teaching faculty. While
the plan permits of highly specialized
extension work, it is very expensive
and in general fails to foster a spirit
of co-operation between the faculty of
the school and the extension faculty.
Ather and better plan is the one
Which has been adopted by this uni-
vergity and which has now reached a'
good degree of efficiency. This plan
uses for the extension service the
members of the regular faculties. 'the1
work, is divided under 10 separate1
heads, each of which is under the<
jurisdiction of one of the special de-
partments in the various schools and,
Extension service is divided into the
following extension departments:I
University extension courses, libraryt

cation and public service, museum ex-t

1istory of Columbia Football.
New York, Oct. 26.--The history of
football at Columbia has been varied
and interesting. Ever since the Var-
sity won a w6-3 verdict over Rutgers
in 1870, the pigskin sport has had
many hard knocks. Of course, in
those days it was a very crude game.
Sometimes there were ten men on the
team, sometimes twenty; there were
no padded uniforms, and of course no
headgears. At one time in the his-
tory lack of a gridiron made Colum-
bia temporarily abolish the game. An-
other time the game was hard hit by
the faculty because they claimedthat
it interfered with school work. Co-
lumbia entered into the then new In-
tercollegiate league in 1876 with Yale,
Harvard and Princeton. The associa-
tion did not, in the eyes of Columbia
authorities, accomplish its aim, and
in 1880 Columbia dropped out. One
year later the university rejoined
again, only to be forced to again drop
out because of the lack of training
facilities. Four of its '00 men, mem-
bers of what is considered the best
aggregation ever produced by Colum-
bia, made the All-American.
Automobilists coming out from De-
troit to the football games will find
that in the future the hand of the
law will be hovering above them.
Sheriff Oakman has ordered three mo-
torcycle policemen to patrol the roads
and arrest all speeders. He has beenI
compelled to take this drastic meas-
ure, he says, because the reports of
no less than 19 automobile accidents
which happened last Saturday after-
noon have reached him.

Iwith the Anglo-French loan, J. P.
Morgan & Co. have given out the fol-
lowing information.

Holdings of Wheat Large
Chicago, Oct. 26.-Farmers' hold-
ings of wheat in the west and south-
west are undoubtedly the largest ever
known at this season., In Kansas
they hold from 60 to 80 per cent of
their crop, of which 40 to 60 per cent
remains unt'hreshed, and in Nebraska
holdings are approximately 80 per
cent. In the Northwest and Canada,
howev;er, selling has been quite gen-
eral and threshings are being com-
pleted quickly.

To Arouse Interest in Drama
Lafayette, Ind., Oct. 26.-In order to
stimulate an interekt in the modern
drama, three of the best modern plays
will be presented by students of Pur-
due. Last year this experiment was
made for the first time, and it proved
such a success that members of the
rhetoric faculty have decided to con-
tinue the work.
Four plays were presented last year.
They were as follows: "Frankness,"
"The Workhouse Ward," "The Fiftl
Colmandment," and "The Gentle
Jury." Mainly to avoid expense, a very
simple stage setting will be employed.
