COLLEGE OF DERM1STRY
Missouri barbers are seeking a
fund of $1,000,000 with which to
found a chair of Dermistry in the
Lincoln-Lee university at Kansas
City, At a convention of master
barbers of Missouri Mr. P. S. Harris,
head of remedy company, addressed
the members und ineidently sub
scribed $5,000 ns-a starter- of the
proposed fund with which to found
the college chair.
Mr. Harris urged that a million
dollar fund be raised in the inter
ests of the proposed school of shav
ing, hair cutting and cure of
bald heads. He said, inhis address,
"there is no excuse for bald heads.
Scientific training, such as a chair
in the university would give, would
prevent it. Barbering is a craft and
should be uplifted. The title of
doctor of dermistry or dermitist
would not be strange. A dean of
dermistry is not improbable."
Mr. Harris sugested that the pro
posed course include anatomy, his
tology, bacteriology, as well as shav
ing, hair cutting and kindred bar
ber practices. .
If such a chair is founded we may,
in the course of time, hear a new
college yell, and we suggest that
"Hair tonic, dandruff, Dermistee,
we're the boys from the' Lincoln
Lee" be adopted

Why Not Be Partners?
Why not form a partnership with this bank?
This can be done by depositing your money
here, and still have the privilege of checking
against it as occasion requires.
Then, again,' your checks serve as receipts
( for money paid out.
A dollar in your pocket seems to float away,
while if it is in the bank you are not tempted
to flitter it away unnecessarily.
That's where the partnership comes inwe
work together for the best interests of the firm.
Come in and let's talk it over.
