Norwegian Independence Day.
Ove Gude, United States Minister
from Norway, will deliver the princi
pal address Childrens' parade in the
forenoon baseball game between St.
Olaf and Luther .in the afternoon
Grand open air concert in the evening.
The 17th of May, Norway's day of
Independence, promises to be a gala
day at Luther College. Grand prepar
ations are being made to celehra'.e it
in a fitting manner. Nothing will be
left undone that will tend to make the
day as interesting and pleasant as pos
sible. An invitation to all is extended.
The days festivities will begin at 'J:00
o'clock, a. m., with a tennis tourna
ment between representatives of Lu
ther College, Decorali, Iowa and St.
Olaf, Northfield, Minn.
Tne strength of the respective teams
together with the friendly rivalry
which has always manifested itself
between the two colleges will make the
tournament one of the most interesting
features pf the day. A children's par
a le, headed by the Luther College Con
C3rt and Second Bands will com
mence at 9:30. All children are asked
t»take part and will be given flags.
T.ie parade will end at the College
Auditorium, where a children's pro
gram, consisting of songs and recita
tions will be rendered. Thereupon,
dinner will be served till ope o'clock.
Families that bring dinner with them,
will get coffee at the college. In the
afternoon, beginning at one o'clock,
addresses will be given by Ove Gude,
Minister to U. S. from Norway. Dr.
H. G. Stub, St. Paul, Minn., and Rev.
I. D. Ylvisaker, Mayville, N. D. At
3:30 o'clock there will be a baseball
game between St. Olaf and Luther
College. This will undoubtedly be the
most interesting feature of the day.
St. Olaf has always had a team of
which Bhe might well be proud. It is
one of the strongest teams Luther has
on its schedule. Luther has an excep
tionally strong team, having lost but
one game this year.'
A grand open air concert, given in
the evening by the Luther College Con
cert Band will crown the festivities of
the day. The people of the neighbor
ing towns and communities are kindly
invited to come and assist the Nor
wegians in celebrating the day.
To the Boys and Girls of Howard County.
The school section of the extension
department of the Iowa State College
at Ames is conducting some very
valuable work among the boys and girls
of the state in home gardens, farm
crops and household work.
Seven courses are offered, namely:
Growing better corn, ear to row test,
growing better oats, garden and pota
to growing, cooking and sewing.
Their plan is to furnish to all boys
and girls of Iowa and to teachers and
all who desire it, full instructions for
carrying on this work in a practical
and also a scientific mannner, sending
these instructions by mail from time to
time as the work progresses.
All boys and girls between 10 and 18
years of age who are willing to pursue
one or more of these courses are invited
to take advantage of this opportunity.
There is no charge whatever, the ser
vices of the college, the circulars of
instruction, etc., being entirely free.
Teachers will be supplied with blanks
and asked to enroll all who will take
up the work. These blanks to be sent
to this office and I will forward them
to Ames. Any one else caring to take
up this work may do so by sending
their names to me. It is hoped the
teachers will encourage this and enroll
as many pupils as possible, so that
Howard county may be numbered with
the progressive counties of the state.

principles for years, in fact always,
in season and out of season, while pro
