Captain Angell is the most popular and beloved lecturer of Nor way and will make his second ap pearance in this country in Fargo, un der the auspices of the Sons of Nor way.

The committee immediately secured Cap tain Angell. This lecturer is one of Norway's foremost and best known men. No public speaker in that country today can draw the audiAces that he can. His literary productions are very pop ular. His last book, Paa Oradrtsecagt (On the Frontier), reached a sale oj 20,000 in three months something un usual for a Norwegian book. Captain Angell has traveled very ex tensively and has been professor at the military academies of his native land as well as of France.

From there he comes direct to Fargo, where he will lecture on Tuesday, Jan. 19, on the subject of li»06 and the New Norway. Alfred Qabrielson, chairman of the local committee, used his influence to I secure Captain Angell for Fargo dur ing the Tri-State Grain Growers' con vention and it is possible that the cap tain will appear at the convention.
