I Van Deusen, state auditor, refused to

Both Officials Wrong. !
Arguments were heard in the case
six weeks ago, when Mr. Melgard
asked for a writ of mandate. In grant
lug the writ Tuesday, the court held
that neither Mr. Eagleson nor Mr. Van
! Deusen could retain control of the
money given the university in the
Morrill fund.
Said the Court : "This money
can not properly be placed, when
received by the state treasurer, in
the general fund of the state, as It
its executive supervision is vested !
in the trustees of the Institution
designated by the state legislature
as the beneficiary entitled to re
ceive it."
Struggle of Long Standing.
The differences between the regents
of the state university and the state
officials over the disposal of the
money came as a climax to a strug

this thing is not a mere game of Eu
ropean politics, but it is a world life
and death struggle, and we are a part
of that world. The stars and stripes
have always been the symbol of hu

noble allies went forth to do terrible
battle for human freedom, we could
not, no matter how peace loving we
were, no matter how much wealth we
were making, we could not long remain
mere spectators of that conflict.
Glory must Join those other fla£s for
this thing as our fight from the hour
when the German war dogs were un
leashed on the Belgian frontier, and lt
will toe our fight until the demons of
lawless autocracy are forever crushed,
and homes and lives of all men and
women and children are acknowledged
equally sacred.
"We raise this service flag with its
241 blue stars, six gold stars, and its
Red Cross as a symbol of Idaho coun

of those- of us who are not needed
at the fronL hut in the humbler but
no less necessary task of staying with
the stuff at home.
"Now as this flag rises out of this
crowd in the midst of these buildings,
to where it shall float free In God's
unfettered breeze, at a height over
looking this prairie and these moun
tains for miles on every side, so at
this hour may our hearts and our
faith rise out of the battle smoke, out
of the bloodshed, out of the heart
ache of the present hour,
rejoice that God has permitted us to
see the day when great nations can
exult in the glory of the privilege of
1 louring our millions of lives and un
told treasure in the defense of the
weak toy the the strong. May we re
joice that each of us has some part in
these terrible days ln bringing a new
and better order on earth. And as we
see the stars on these two flags swing
out Into the sunshine and the breeze
may we In our hearts see the driving
to cover of the powers of darkness

freedom which shall know no sunset."

culture in an address at the Court
House last Saturday, as follows:
Establish ground wire connection
with all the moving parts of the ma

install a suction fan to draw out the j
smut and dust from the machine and ;
prevent a mixture of dust being gath
ered inside which would explode; es

Dr. Brown, with George L. Zundel

and R. L. Baldwin of the bureau of;

The talks were illustrated by slides

Five Years of Investigation.
Dr. Brown in his address said that
the government had been carrying on
investigation for five years. He ex
plained the enormous losses suffered
every year by dust explosions, stating
that five big explosions in mills ln the ;
east and middle west resulted ln a
total loss of over $8,000,000, loss of.
36 lives and injury to 60 men and a
loss of grain which would have heen
sufficient to supply an army of 300,000
men ln bread rations for a year. At
present it is not the monetary loss
which is considered most deeply, he
pointed out, but the loss ln food and
resources of the country. Thousands
of bushels are also lost in explosions
in threshing machines and combines
in the fields, he said, and the fire
spreading from such explosions some
times consumes whole fields of grain
and great stacks of sacked wheat.
There were 150 explosions in the fields
in the northwest last season, he said,
The speaker urged the establishment
of the three preventatlves mentioned
at the beginning of this article, and
said that a system to ground the static
from a combine as well as a stationary j
machine is being worked out. He also
urged that in piling wheat, farmers
take care to keep the wheat way from
the straw, so that in case the straw
catches fire from an explosion the
wheat can be saved.
