End Convention With Elec
tion of Officers For the
The climax of the Daughter* of
Norway convention which closed in
this city today, came last night when
the delegates and visitors were the
guests of the local "Gyda" lodge at a
banquet in the Odd Fellows' hall.
Convention veterans who had attended
nearly all of the grand lodge meetings
said that they could not remember
ever having been featsted as elabor
ately as in Grand Forks.
A number of short speeches were
given by visiting delegates as well as
by members of the local lodge, and
two series of historical and patriotic
tableaux were exhibited to the great
delight of every one present. A mus
ical program was also rendered, and
the evening closed with a dance.
This morning at 9 o'clock the ses
sion was resumed, and during the
forenoon a number of important sub
Jepts were discussed by the delegates.
Special attention was paid to sugges
tions aiming at the introduction of
methods whereby the Daughters of
Norway may Increase the member
ship. The growth to date has been
exceedingly encouraging, and the or
der has been gradually expanding
from a very Bmall beginning. The in
tention of the delegates is to effect
some kind of active co-operation with
all Daughters of Norway organizations
throughout the country, there being
several independent lodges which
work with the same end in view as
the larger body, but without direct
affiliation with the latter- Yesterday
direct steps were taken toward co-op
eratlon with the Daughters of Nor
way on the Pacific coast, and the scat
tered lodges in the Atlantic states, al
though not represented here, will also
be approached in an attempt to "get
This.afternoon the superior officers
were elected, and shortly afterward
the convention adjourned, having
agreed to meet again in Chicago two
years from now. It is thought that
the total membership of the order
may be increased to more than 6,000
by the time the grand lodge meets
the next time, and each lodge has
pledged itself to do its utmost in or
der to Insure growth of its member
Yesterday afternoon. Deacon Ludvlg
Waale of Chrlstlania delivered a short
address to the convention and spoke
about the work being carried out In
Norway for the purpose of establish
ing a home for the old and destitute
people of the Flnmarken in the
northern part of the country. The
convention appropriated (SO to Mr.
Waale's fund for this purpose.

Breckenridge, Minn., June 23.—The
hearing of the committees from the
states of North Dakota, South Da

drainage district here opened this
afternoon, everything pointing fav

The big issue before the gathering
was whether this new district to be
known as the "Wilkin county dis'

Wheaton meeting two weeks ago.
Some prominent Minnesota men favor
a separate- district.

The local Red Cross, war fund con
tinues to climb steadily, and today
there is about $14,000 in the hands of
the committee. This is exclusive of
the reports of several of the solicit
ing committees which have not turn

this amount, of course does not in

brought a good many visitors to the
various stations, where women solici
tors were placM, with the result that
that cash boxes became pretty well
filled, and indications are that by to
night, a big majority of the people of
thiB city will have contributed their
share to helping along the war time
work of the Red Cross. The commit
tees of men who have been "on the
job" all week are continuing their
work, and their enthusiasm and ener
gy, coupled with that of the new. so
liciting committees of women which
have been serving slnae yesterday
morning, are the chief reasons for the
wholesome growth of the fund during
these last few days.
Country districts, and the towns of
the county have been doing their
share toward boosting the amount,
that is expected of Grand Forks
county, and according to reports sent
to A. P. Clifford, chairman of the
campaign committee, nearly all of
them will send in subscrlptionb,
though this will not be done until the
early part of next week.
The campaign will be closed on
Monday, which Is to be the big day,
and though Grand Forks is making a
good showing, a good share of the
fund that has already been contribut
ed represents the subscriptions of a
comparatively small number of citi
zens, who launched the campaign
with big donations, and it is hoped
that by Monday night, every person,
who has not already joined the ranks
of Red Cross backers, will get In line.
All should Give.
Everybody should give. Out of the
nearly twelve hundred men of this
city who have registered, many will
probably be called to the fighting
across the water, and there is hardly
a family in the city which does not
have an Interest—a very personal
interest in some one soldier at least.
These men must be assured when they
leave for the front that the people at
home will take care of him, should he
get wounded, and that they will go
farther, and see that his dependants
are taken care of, if need be. The one
big way to feel assured that every one
of these men will be promptly given
a doctor, nurse and bandage," when
the need comes, is to give Now to the
Red Cross war fund.
