HE TALKS FREELY
OF STATE BOARDS
PRESIDENT NORTHROP DISCUSSES
MINN. AFFAIRS I N IOWA.
He Goes on Record as Preferring Pres
ent Board of Control to Threatened
Educational Board, but Prefers the
Board of Regents Plan Above All
President Cyrus Northrop of the Min
nesota university gave an address at
Des Moines Tuesday, in which he dis
cussed the board of control idea in the
management of the state university.
He strongly opposed the prospective
bill for the next legislature to create
a state board of education to take
charge of the educational institutions
of the state, and asserted that under
the present arrangement by the state
board of control and the regents, things
were working satisfactorily to all par
"The proposition to create a state
board of education in Minnesota is
outrageous," he said. "I regard the
proposal as degrading to the institu
tions and degrading the educational
nloals. I believe that every educator
would so class it. I hope never to see
the system adopted.
"The board of control is reasonable
and the legents are reasonable, and tho
state university is being run on a
strict business basis, as always. There
is but little friction under this arrange
ment. But it is a clumsy contrivance
at best, and it is productive of no bene
fit to the institution that is perceptible.
It is true that we have learned some
things from the board of control.
Among others, we have discovered the
value of a single purchasing agent. Pos
sibly we would have discovered this
on our own motion, but we now know
the value of such an agent and we
expect to retain that idea if finally we
are released from the beard of control
A board of regents of twelve mem
bers has some advantages over a board of
control of three members, for instance.
On the latter, the member who is guil
ty of questionable things certainly
would have more power and more op
portunity than on a larger board. It
ought to occur to any one, also, that
the larger board brings together in the
management of an institution more
ideas, more interests, a broader field
of suggestion, and a more competent
management tnan would be possible un
der a small board with a multiplicity
"Moreover, it is proposed to make a
maionty of tho board of control con
trol in the management of affairs, and
a majority of three would be two and
since the board is non-iartizant-that
is, bi-partizanthe control could well
become political in character.
"The board of control of charitable
institutions has as its business, largely,
commercial intereststhe buying and
selling of things, the purchase of food
and clothing for the thousands of un
fortunates who are the wards of the
state. That is the business of the board
of control. But the university feeds no
one tho university clothes no one:
the university produces no articles of
commerce to be sold to the best advan
tage the university manufactures noth
ing to be disposed of.
"And if there were a board of three
members to manage all of the institu
tions, it is sugested that it might be
supremely difficult to find men who
would be competent not onlv to man
age the business of the institutions in
a superior manner, but also of the ex
perience and success in educational lines
which would qualify them to be the
heads of the very institutions they
GAME ILLEGALLY SHIPPED
Minnesota Birds Are on Sale in
Dr. T. S. Palmer of Madison, Wis.,
employed by the national government
to look after violations of the Lacy
law, which governs interstate game
shipments, has reported to S. F. Fuller
ton, state game warden, that the Chi
cago market is stocked with large quan
tities of Minnesota game.
The present game law permits non
resident hunters to ship game out of
the state with the tags supplied when
their licenses are issued. They are
supposed to ship the game for their
own use, but there is nothing to pre
vent them from selling it when out of
the state, and the 180 non-resident
hunters who took licenses in Minneso
ta this year have not all been true
sportsmen. A number of them have
evidently been engaged in shooting
ducks, prairie chickens, etc., for the
Chicago market. It is likely that the
game laws will be amended by the next
legislature to prevent this practice.
Building Engulfed by Flames When
Fire Department Arrived.
The three story brick building at
27 Main street SB, formerly occupied
by Dottie Hazzard as a house of ill
repute, was almost completely destroyed
by a fire that started in the furnace
room at 10 o'clock last night. The loss
on contents is estimated at $13,000
and damage to" building $5,000. Both
losses are fully covered by insurance.
For several months the building has
been unoccupied except for a caretaker.
This caretaker was alone in the build
ing when the fire started last night and
turned in the alarm.
While the fire started in the furnace
room, the flames broke out in several
parts of the house almost simultane
ously. When the department arrived
the entire interior was in flames.
LAW KNOCKS ARITHMETIC
Two Halves Do Not Necessarily Make
a Whole Day.
A school district in Swift county
has made application to be allowed to
teach the pupils one half day in Ger
man and the other half day in English.
The law requires five months' school
as a requisite to receiving state aid,
and this district wants to be allowed
to hold a ten months' session, half
German and half English, and still re
ceive the state aid.
The attorney general has decided that
two half days do not constitute a whole
day in such a case, and that the law
requires five months of continuous ses
sion with teaching in English.
School Children In the United States.
The enrollment of school children in
the public schools of the United States
amounts to 15,603,451. That the "little
red schoolhouse" is the greatest civil
izing influence in*.the world, goes with
out saying and that Pillsbury's vitos
is the greatest cereal food in the world,
is equally obvious. A trial will prove it.

1612 Stevens avenue, according to the

Oscar Billings of Algona reported to

Oscar says he answered the adver

letter-writing they became engaged. He
arranged to be married in the city and
was to meet her at Bridge square yes
terday. He had her photo, so as not to
miss her, but she failed to show up,
