Sweden Will Raise a Fund from Which
Men Out of Employment Can Bor
row Enough Money to Purchase a
Small Piece of Land on Which They
Will Be Enabled to Make a Living
in Their Own Country.
A national subscription has been
started throughout Sweden for the pur
pose of checking emigration, especial
ly among the agricultural classes. The
money thus collected shall constitute
a fund from which such men as are
out of employment now, can borrow
money with which to purchase a small
piece of land on which they will Ije
enabled to make their living. It is al
so a scheme on the part of the govern
ment to open up government lands, the
same as is done in America and thus
give the buyer a period of ten years
time in which to pay for his land The
plan may be a feasible one, but in the
meantime, emigration of young men
is going on at an alarming rate, and
America is getting the most of it. It
is especially noticeable that there are
unusually large numbers of young men
who leave the country They are the
very ones that the government is
loathe to let go, because they consti
tute the citizens on which the future
country depends.

him. He is willing to be taught too,

plete his aeronautic education there if
possible. He will return to Stock
holm next year with his improved
monoplane, which be says is easier
to run than an automobile, and it will,
according to "Baron" Cederstrom. only
be a short time before his monoplane
will be so popular that all Stockholm
ians in average good circumstances
can afford to have them.

Larsen writes that Professor Carl
Lorentzen, of Columbia University,
has just returned from Norway, Swe
den and Denmark, where he spent
some time in the interest of the Ami
lean-Scandinavian society, of which he
is secretary. He speaks enthusiasti
cally of the results accomplished since
the organization of the society lese
than a year ago. The interchange ol
professors and of students is already
an actual fact. The next step will be
to extend the activity of the society tc
the middle west where the Scandina
vian element is more powerful in tat
universities. "Wherever I went I met
with a cordial response," said the pro
fessor, "and I may say that Norway
has taken the lead. I met no man on
my travels who took a keener interest
in our plans than Professor Broegger
of the University of Norway He hopes
that they may be the means of making
the Scandinavian countries at home
draw closer through a comman union
with America. During our talk he be
came so interested that he jumped
up and said he would present me to
the King. That could not be done as
the King was in Bergen at the time,

the matter before the King in the not
distant future." Professors S. P. Dut
