"Stay on the Job," is Advice
of University Dean to En
gineering Students.
"The time has come when the en
gineering students of this country
must plan their futures with greater
care than ever before," said Dean E.
J. Babcoclc of the University of North
Dakota Engineering College, in an ad
dress given before all the engineer
ing students of tha university this
"Industry is being put on a more
scientific basis than ever before* The
demand for men In your profession is
greater than the supply, at the pres
ent time, and that demand will be
even greater after the war then now.
It is absolutely essential that you pre
pare yourselves now for the work of
the future."
Dean Babcock urged all under
graduate engineers to return to the
university and continue their work
next fall If not drafted, and even If
chosen for the government service,
the dean urged the students to hold
to their Ideals and continue their
work along the same lines as before.
He emphasized the fact that the de
mand for engineers now is very great,
saying that calls for men in the pro
fession at the university was much in
excess of the available graduates.
All undergraduates who do not go
Into engineering work during the
summer months, should go back to
the farm and do what they can to In
crease the produce of the state, said
the dean in clostng.
"I do hope you appreciate that In
marrying my daughter you marry a
large-hearted girl?"
"I do, sir! And I hope she Inherits
those qualities from her father."—

Delegates from Various
Parts of Country Delib
erate in Annual Sessions
One of Fathers of Organiza
tion Being Honored and
His Services Recognized
The 17 th annual convention of the
Lutheran Brethren of America which
opened yesterday at the Zlon Luther
an church, was continued this fore
noon, and the delegates deliberated
on the question of purchasing addi
tional ground for the old people's
home at Sauk Center, Minn.
Yesterday morping the organisa
tion of the meeting was effected as
soon as the committee on credentials
had made its report. Following this,
reports were read Indicating progress
in the various fields of activity of the
organization, and a committee on
nominations was elected. This com
mittee reported at the beginning of
the afternoon session, and on the
strength of the report committees
were elected
make recommenda­
tions to the convention.
The following committee chairmen
were elected: On the president's and
secretary's reports. Rev. H. E. Enge
bretson of Souris, N. D. on China
mission. Professor E. M. Broen on
home mission. Rev. G. Stenolen of
Superior, Wis. on the board of trus
tees report, John Quarum on the
Bible school. R. S. GJerde of Minne
apolis on the report of the editors of
the organ of the church, the "Broder
baandet," Bernard Holt.
Last evening,. Rev. G. Stenoln gave
a lecture on the subject of "Love and
its Duties," taking his text from John
21, 15-17, and this afternoon the del
egates entered into a spirited discus
sion growing out of the lecture. Rev.
M. A. Dorumsgaard of Brooklyn, N.
Y., spoke on the second coming of
Christ, and several songs rendered by
a male quartet were well received by
the large audience which crowded
the spacious edifice.
This forenoon reports and greetings
were read. A message arrived from
J. J. Peterson of Colfax, Wis., a for
mer North Dakota man, who has been
Intimately associated with the work
of the church ever since Its inception.
Mr. Peterson is now feeble and has
been in ill health for a long time
he recently sustained a serious acci
dent resulting in the loss of two of
his right-hand fingers. The conven
tion desired to formally recognize the
service which Mr. Peterson rendered
the church, and for this reason Rev.
Andrew Vatne was appointed to so
licit subscriptions which are to be
sent to Mr. Peterson as a token of the
appreciation of the members of the
Reports and greetings were also
submitted from E. M. Strom and Olaf
BJelland who have received scholar
ships for the pursuit of their studies
Mr. Strom is now in Chicago, while
Mr. Bjelland is studying In Norway.
The president of the old people's
home at Sauk Center. Minn., Rev. An
drew Vatne, reported that the institu
tion had been secured only about two
years ago at an exceedingly favorable
price. It comprises various buildings
and also 30 acres of ground within
the city limits, and this property had
been acquired for a total cost of about
$10,000. Now, Mr. Vatne said, there
is a splendid opportunity for Increas
ing the Institution by adding to it 10
acres adjoining the ground of the old
people's home, and he suggested to
the convention that it act upon this
proposition inasmuch as the offer
which he had received from the pres
ent owners of the lot is so favorable
that it would be difficult to resist it.
There are at the present time 12 in
mates in the home and room for 6
more. The Institution is maintained
and controlled by the Lutheran Breth
This afternoon various appoint
ments were made, and a general dis
cussion took place. Tonight E. Aan
dahl, who has just returned from the
mission field In China where he has
spent about six years, will lecture, and
the greater part of tomorrow's ses
sion will be devoted to business.
An unusually large delegation is
present at this convention, and mem
bers from many states lying between
New York and Idaho are present.

Local Workers Prepare For
Big Campaign Here—
Much Help is Needed.
"Military and Civilian Relief, at
Home) and Abroad" is the slogan of
the campaigners for Red Cross week,
June 18 to 25, set aside by President
Wilson in formal proclamation as the
period In which the nation will devote
Itself to raising a hundred million dol
lars for the comfort and relief of the
country's fighting men, the sick and
wounded, as well as dependent fami
lies of enlisted men and destitute non
Inspired by the appeal of the na
tion's chief executive and head of the
national Red Cross, workers in every
city in the union are being organized
to make the campaign week an effec
tive money-raising event. Affairs are
being rounded Into shape for the big
country-wide drive which is to open
Monday morning, and as a prelimin
ary to the week's activities, Sunday,
June 17, is to be observed as Red
Cross Sunday. This by historical right
is known as "Bunker Hill Day," and
this year it will become Red Cross
day as well, clergy of all denomina
tions being asked to unite In appeal
ing for support of the Red Cross from
their pulpits.
In spite of the many calls upon the
patriotic for financial assistance, this
campaign for the Red Cross seems
practically assured of good substantial
support. In all sections of the coun
try prominent business men have be
come briskly interested in the' great
undertaking, and they are devoting
their energies and attention to help
ing In the securing of funds that are
destined to alleviate the sufferings, and
distress which must inevitably arise
out of the present conflict.
Local committee members, and
chapter officials are conferring dally
this week, rounding Into shape the
plans for the campaign which Is to ob
serve the week In the city and county
of Grand Forks. Teams for the so
liciting are being organised, and an
energetic, efficiently planned cam
paign will be conducted in the city,
and through the country districts. In
this state, as well as in others of the
country, men and women will give
freely of their time to the solicitation
of money for the Red Cross fund, and
Grand Forks is expected to do her
share in making a good healthy show
ing for North Dakota. There Is plen
ty of enthusiasm among the people
who are going to take up the solicit
ing on Monday morning, and If they
are met in the same spirit, the end of
the campaign week will find Grand
Forks county on the map, as being
substantially behind the movement 'of
mercy which the Red Cross associa
tion signifies.
Thorvald, also called Tom, Knut
son, Is missing and efforts to trace his
whereabouts through the local branch
of the Salvation Army have so far
proved futile. Mr. Knutson is a Nor
wegian, about 52 years old. He has
lived In the United States for more
than 20 years and has been frequent
ly working in lumber camps.
His address at the time he
heard from last was 10th avenue,
:West Hotel, Ashland, Wis. He is be
Ing sought In connection with some
money which by Tight of inheritance
is due him. No trace of him has been
discovered, and notification of his pos
sible demise has never been received.

Juniors of University Not to
Put out "Dacotah" This
Year, it is Decided.
The 1918 "Dacotah," the biennial
publication of the junior class of the
University of North Dakota, will not
come out this year, as a result of the
action of the juniors at a meeting held
at the university this afternoon. The
class voted unanimously to abandon
the publication of the book, after Edi
tor Swanson had explained the situa
tion which confronted the manage
A series of events leads up to the
action of the class taken today. In
the first place, the editor and business
manager who were elected last spring,
failed to return to school last fall, and.
as a result the publication of the book
bad to be postponed until the coming
fall. Milton Swanson was elected
editor-ln-chlef and Fred P. Mann was
elected business manager, the two
men taking the work over on a busi
ness proposition.
In spite ot the handicap of the war,
Editor Swanson has worked diligently
with the publication and at the pres
ent time has the book compiled. How
ever, It has been decided that It would
be business foolishness to go ahead
with the work on account of present
conditions. In the first place the
board has not received the support ot
the business men of the city or the
student body of the university. It Is
maintained. The board claims that
the advertising has berfn tfut almost In
two. As a result of war conditions It
is believed the subscription list would
be cut almost one-third. Moreover,
the board maintains that as a result
of the administrative officials of.the
university refusing to guarantee to
take their 100 copies, a further de
ficit of )250 might result. If at tho
time of publication, the university re
fused to take the books.
It Is maintained that almost $800
would be- lost by turning out the book
at the present time.
Another meeting of the junior class
will be held tomorrow afternoon, at
which time the question of the senior
banquet, which had been previously
voted down by the class, will be con.
