John Lind, special envoy of Presi
dent Wilson to Mexico and president
of the board of regents of the Univer
sity of Minnesota, will not succeed
himself on that governing board after
his present term expires on March 4.
Advices from Washington are that
Mr. Land's work in Mexico will be
recognized by the present administra
tion and that almost any post in the
diplomatic service is at the Minneap
Mr. Lind has often of late express
ed to his* personal friends his desire
to remain in the diplomatic service.
Governor Eberhart has the power
of the appointment of a regent, and
members of the board of regents
have been informally notified that
some one other than Mr. Lind'will
receive the appointment in March.
Reports from Mexico are to the ef
fect that Mr. Lind is ready to give up
his law practice in Minneapolis and
it is understood he will remain in
Mexico until the government of that

MINNESOTA RANKS VERY HIGH
Exceeds Other States in Average
Yield of Several Crops.
More corn, more coats, more rye.
more potatoes were produced on the
acre in Minnesota, on the authority
of the United States department of
agriculture, than in any of nine other
states, constituting in all what might
be called the North Central group.
In the yield of barley to the acre Min
nesota ranks high and in the yield of
hay to the acre Minnesota ranks sec*
ond, but the wheat yield, while above
the average, does not top the column
of state figures.
The government figures have been
compiled by Fred D. Sherman, com
missioner of immigration for Minne
sota, with special reference to states
in which natural conditions are simi
lar. He is preparing to send out to
nearly 30,000 correspondents of the
department copies of the tabulation to
convince them that lands in Minne
sota which can be bought in a wihj
state for $10 and -vwheft cultivated IrtH
$75 or less is giving a greater return,
acre for acre, than the $200 a*id $250
lands of Illinois,' Iowa and. other
states. ':••.. •"-. '"""". t'
the government figures show that
while Minnesota is not regarded as a
corn state it raised almost 100,000,000
bushels of this crop, the average be
ing forty bushels an acre. Only one
state in the neighborhood group pro
duced more than Minnesota's oat
crop of 112,644,000 bushels. That was
Iowa, with a mean yield of thirty
four bushels* compared with thirty
eight bushels in Minnesota.
Minnesota topped all states in the
barley crop, with 38,800,000 bushels,
and is in a class by itself in this re
spect. It also is one of the great rye
states, both as to quantity and aver
age of product. It leads all its neigh
bors in the mean acre yield, and is ex
ceeded only by Wisconsin in the total
Minnesota shines as a producer of
potatoes. Its crop of 30,250,000 bush
els in 1913 was as great as the com
bined crops of six great states—Iowa,
Illinois, South Dakota, Nebraska, In
diana and North Dakota. The yield
of 110 bushels to the acre is ap
proached only by Wisconsin with 109
bushels for an average.
