What System Will Do. "A system well worked out," said Mr. Hard today, "will mean a con trol of the flood situation and at the same time tlie solution of the drain age problems for farmers in the Red river valley. It should prove of ines timable value to fanners who cannot bear the expense of tiling, and who now could find no proper outlet wcro they prepared to put in tile drains." Cass county alone is expending $250,000 on this drainage problem, and every county lying in or adja cent to the Red river valley is deeply interested in the outcome of the con certed effort which these three states arc to make. North Dakota's share of the preliminary expense has .been estimated by federal engineers at $10,000. Three thousand is appropri ated by the bill creating the boun dary commission, and it is thought the remainder of the fund necessary may be obtained from other sources.

D., April 26—The last chapter in the Antelope school removal case was staged before Judge Crawford this week, the court deciding in favor of the school di rectors. The case arose out of an ejection held to move the school near Antelope, the majority of the voters voting in favor of moving the school house into the town of Antelope, while some parties wanted to move the school several miles out. The election held did not state the removal proposition and the parties contsejjng the removal in Antelope contended that such notice must lie given.

With the experience which these men have they 'become very valuable timer for the officers' reserve. If commissioned they will receive a salary adequate to the support of de pendents, and their ambition to re main in the service will have been achieved. This applies particularly to non-commissioned officers who have been discharged under the de pendent relative act. College Training Unnecessary. An impression has gone abroad that: a college'education is essential. This is not th&~fact, Men of ma turer ages,' within the age limit of U, are particularly needed. A per son is eligible if "clearly a well edu cated man and provided 'he has dem onstrated in business, athletics or other activity that he possesses to an unusual degree the ability to handle men." The number of applications from men over 35 years is very small. There will ibe np ^rpub]fp in enlisting for the training 'camp an: abundance of men under 28, but for captains and majors a large number of older men are absolutely necessary. Engineers' Applications. Engineers' applications entered lo cally have gone direct to Washing ton. D.
