ter. He is glad to come to us and
we are glad to have him. His mission
is twofold, for he not only entertains
but makes us think. Born of German
parentage in the capital of Minnesota,
Mr. Kachel began making his reputa
tion even as early as the graded
schools, not by a series of triumphs
known the world over, but by a record
of boyish pranks and dare devilnesB
such as many a small boy leaves be
hind him, to smile at in the years to
come. In reading and arithmetic Ar

drawing his mark was always "poor."
One day he took home, for his moth-

said for us to work for the general
effect and never mind detail."
At the age or thirteen he left the
grades to enter the school of exper
ience, an institution which we must
all sooner or later pass through. Here
h® soon learned that "to eat, one must
work," and with hunger making crude
and primitive suggestions he landed
his first Job. Not a position, mind you,
but a job. It was during these form
ative years that the dream of some
day becoming an "enactor of plays"
gave his mind much food for thought.
Slowly, with the dream ever in his
heart, he rose from bell hop to hotel
clerk and then to passenger brakeman
\fith many a knock between from
pupil to a professorship in one of
America's leading educational institu
tions. A few weeks ago an Iowa
newspaper spoke of Mr. Kachel in
this way: "When he came, his was a
smile of joy, and when he left ours
was a smile of regret."
Guards Ordered Home.
The North Dakota National guard—
First Infantry—together with the Min
nesota brigade headquarters and the
Minnesota Second infantry and the
Wisconsin brigade headquarters and
First infantry and field hospital No. 1,
are among the units ordered home by
General Funston to be mustered out of
the federal service.
Sixteen thousand troops were des
lgnated by General Funston to leave
the border service and return to their
respective states as soon as transpor
latlon could be arranged.

women who had sought In vain to buy
meat, only to be told by the butchers
that they had none. Midnight watching
revealed a brisk trade which the
butchers carried on with patrons who
could afford to pay exorbitant rates.
The police were active In prosecuting
the gamblers in food, but the evil was
not eliminated. One butcher, Klaus

Cbausee, was convicted of selling sau

the principal of a large school, had him
arrested after several of the children

been arrested for increasing the weight
