Form International Friendship.
In his report to the National Coun
cil of Boy Scouts of America at its
fifth annual meeting Frank Presbrey,
of New York, a member of the coun
cil's editorial board, described as
"especially notable" the influence of
Boys' Life, the official monthly mag
azine of the scout movement, in cre
ating friendships between boys in
widely separated parts of the United
States and between American boys
and boys in other countries.
"This influence," said Mr. Pres
brey, "has been exerted through what
is known as 'The Lonesome Corner,'
a regular department of the mag
azine. Starting with the names of
three or four boys who had written
that they would like to correspond
with other boys, the list of boys who
are exchanging letters through the
magazine regularly has grown to
thousands, and is steadily increasing.
"The importance of this activity
of boys can scarcely be overestimated.
Scoutmasters, teachers, ministers, col-,
lege professors and parents have de
clared that, in addition to the per
sonal pleasure and immediate educa
tional benefit which boys get from
such exchange of letters, the forma
tion of friendships around the world
is doing much to bring about a better
international understanding, mutual
appreciation and good will, and can
not but have a good effect upon the
future relations of the United States
with other nations."

officials and citizens' were-not aware
that it was the flftyi-seventh Anniver
sary of the authorization of stat^ gov
ernment in Minnesota by congress.
Technically the measure was not apa
proved until March 3.
When the enabling aet was passed,
the people paid but scant attention
to the act, as great excitement "pre
vailed at that time over the1
of gaining membership to the sister
hood of states, so that March 3 as
sumed greater significance in the
minds of the Minnesotans of early
The gift of lands at the time^of
the enabling act by the Federal gov
ernment was the greatest -boon this
state ever had. Wise administration
in the disposal of these lands has
placed Minnesota in the front rank
in educational matters.
The money derived from the sale
of these lands goes into the state's
permanent trust'funds. As a result
Minnesota has a permanent school
fund of 133,000,000. It has been es
timated that-it will reach an ulti

The closer the members of the leg
islature are kept to the people the
"ft will be for the ordinary
folks who go to make up the great
majority of the population. There
is little reason for making the terms
of the house members four years un
less the legislature is to meet only
once in four years. Legislators are
only ordinary mortals and it is well
to keep in touch with them after each
session. But if there are to be two
members elected from each district
and one of them were to be elected
every ftwo- years the four-year term
might not beso bad In this wajr
the feeling of the constituency would
be expressed before each session.
We do not believe that the legisla
