LECTURE TOUR WEST.
Last week it was my pleasure to lec
ture at Winthrop and meet with Its
school board, and to speak to the high
schools of Madison, Granite Falls and
Montevideo. At Madison I visited the
first grade class In Norwegian, taught
by Miss Erickson of the Mankato Nor
mal school. I have always advocated
the language of the home and settlement
in the elementary grades, but after vis
iting the first grade class in Madison
I am more confirmed that neither the
university nor the high school Is the
•place to learn the abc's of a second lan
guage. Any Swedish or Norwegian per
son, who has a certificate from a state
normal school and reads and speaks the
language fluently is able to teach it in
their respective grades in the same way
as English is taught. Some think grade
teachers are not to be had and there
fore the work must be postponed. This
is misleading. A great number of grade
teachers, graduates of our normal
schools and other schools, could begin
at once to teach either Swedish or Nor
wegian in the grades. Text books are
numerous, published in the fatherlands
and in this country for grade work. The
book used at Madison is Prof. Knute
Lokensgaard's. Supt. Nordby and Miss
Erickson are talking of writing a new
one. We wish Madison great success in
their grade and high school work in
Norse. May many follow their example!
SCANDINAVIAN IN UNIVERSITIES.
The study of Scandinavian languages
and literature in universities is not of
recent date, as the following figures will
plainly show. It was introduced in the
New York university as early as 1858,
University of Wisconsin, 1869 Columbia
University, 1880 Minnesota, 1882
Northwestern, 1885 North Dakota, 1893
Chicago, 1893 John Hopkins, 1885 Har
vard, 1888 Bryn Mawr, 1890 Western
Reserve, 1891 California, 1892 Yale,
1893 Pennsylvania, 1895 Leland Stan
ford, 1894 Michigan, 1888 Norse langu
ages and literature and the Swedish in
1896 Vanderbilt, 1891 Indiana, 1885
South Dakota, 1902 Illinois, 1909 Kan
sas, 1909 Nebraska, 1910 Washington
•State, 1910 Williamette, 1910 Oregon,
1911, also in Princeton, Cornell, Ohio,
Cincinnati, Missouri and Texas. Three
institutions offering Scandinavian in
1880. eleven in 1890, twenty-one in 1900
and thirty-seven in 1911. These courses
include Old Norse, Old Icelandic, Nor
wegian and Swedish, whose education
al importance must be appreciated by
these institutions of learning.
SCANDINAVIAN IN HIGH SCHOOLS.
It is only during the last two or three
years that its introduction in the high
schools has gained impetus as the fol
lowing will indicate. The study of Scan
dinavian in the high schools is being
pursued in our state as follows: Lanes
boro, Rushford, Spring Valley, Minne
apolis in four schools, Willmar, Daw
son, Madison, Fergus Falls, Thief River
falls, Crookston, Fosston, Duluth, Vir
ginia, Benson, St. James, Cokato, De
troit, Henning, Milan, Lindstrom and
Hanley Falls. It will also be introduced
into the high schools of St. Paul, though
turned down once, also of Montevideo,
Granite Falls, and Winthrop. Scandin
avian is thus in thirty or more high,
schools. It is also taught in six other
states. In Wisconsin Stoughton, Stan
ley and Hudson in Iowa Decorah, Story
City Lake Mills and Northwood in Il
linois, Chicago, Moline and Rockford in
North Dakota, Grand Forks in New
York Jamestown and Brooklyn in
Washington, Everett. It is difficult to
gather complete statistics and no doubt
there are others not heard from. Tell
us if you know of any. In the country
district schools, the work is also grow
Minneapolis, Minn., Nov. 18, 1912.
Won by a Traveling1 Man.
A large audience attended the enter
tainment given at the Bonde hall on
Monday evening by the American Su
burbs Company of Minneapolis. A des
criptive lecture on Northern Minnesota
and International Falls was given by
Mr. Jones, secretary of the company.
One hundred stereopticon views of
Northern Minnesota and early Minne
apolis and International Falls proved to
be very interesting and instructive.
One of the interesting features of the
evening was the deciding of the bean
jar contest. The judges were H. C. Han
sen, L. A. Tjosvold, E. P. Bjornberg. At
the close of the entertainment the judges
decision was announced. They found the
jar held 1852 beans and the winner was
Jerome Pancake, a traveling salesman
of St. Paul, who guessed 1850.

Modern German is full of English

to his unerring aim. This is the
more remarkable since his majesty

The new Zeppelin airship, construct*

"L 1," traveled over 1,000 miles during
its recent uninterrupted flight of 30

If Hamburg had been the starting
