BUDGET BOARD TO
WILL OFFER RECOMMENDA
TIONS TO THE LEIGSLATUUE
TO STOP LEAKS IN RUNNING
THE STATE INSTITUTIONS
(Normal School Budget)
Members of the budget board who
visited the Normal school recently
are of the opinion that "small leaks"
in the conduct of the various state
institutions, penal and educational, can
be done «away with and that each in
stitution will be benefited by the sub
stitution of a better system in the
handling of its finances.
It is claimed by certain members of
the board that by making the state
treasurer the financial head of all the
institutions an enormous amount of
now duplicated bookkeeping will be
eliminated and that the state may ex
ercise a more regulatory influence over
the spending of the appropriations
made for these institutions.
Under the present system each in
stitution is paid each month by the
statp treasurer one twenty-fourth of
its biennial appropriation, whether it
is in need of the money or not. The
result is that those institutions exper
iencing periods of light expense often
have large sums of money lying idle
in the banks while others after being
hard pressed by some abnormal ex
pense are forced to borrow money at
high interest rates to tide them over
until the payment of their next por
tion of the regular appropriation.
The new plan intended to be put in
force would do away with this con
dition, it is said, in that the state
treasurer would pay all bills in full
as they were presented and would
have power to temporarily transfer
money from one appropriation to an
other as the contingencies might arise.
This system has been in vogue at the
penal institutions for the past four
years and has more than "delivered
the goods," remarked one member of
the board in discussing it.
In the matter of abolishing the "ap
propriation in lieu of the mill tax"
members of the board declared that it
was their intention to ask the legisla
ture to appropriate money only for
actual expenses incurred in maintain
ing the various educational institu
tions and also to ask them not to du
plicate appropriations in any way.
The appropriation in lieu of 'the
mill tax' was a blanket sum given
all educational institutions by the var
ious legislatures following the repeal
of the mill tax for upkeep of the in
stitutions. Each session since that
time the legislature has duplicated
.that appropriation by making a second
one for "maintenance," which was for
merly covered by the mill tax rev
enue. The institutions have been per
mitted to spend the appropriation in
any manner they saw fit, it is said.
J. O. Kittilson received the follow
ing letter from his son Albin, who
is now in France:
Fraice, Nov. 24, 1918.
Dear Father: Being it is Father's
Day today I will have to write you a
I wrote a letter home just a few
days ago and haven't received one for
a long time. We are not near as busy
now as usual. Made a long move a
couple of days ago so we are down
in the central part of France now. It
sure seems good to be away from the
front again. We sure .had a long,
tough spell of it, but thank goodness
it is. all over with and we will soon
start for home. We haven't heard any
thing for sure about when we start
but the rumors are that we start next
month some time.
As near as I can find out these
father's letters won't be censored and
we are allowed to write anything we
like. It may be of interest to you to
know where I am at and where I have
been. We are in a town called
"Tounerre" now. We have been in
or taking part in every big drive that
the Americans have made. I suppose
you have read^f the big battle of the
Marne, on what is. called the Chateau
Thierry front. If you remember it
started on the fourteenth of July, I
will never forget that night as long
as I live. Although I never took any
actual part in the fighting, I was un
der heavy shell fire from that night
on for nine nights and days. It was
certainly some awful fight. I had
many a close call but came out without
a scratch while men right next to me
were hit. There was especially one
night or about four hours of the night
that was the worst. There were sev
eral holes in the car the next morning.
The officers I had up there, two col-!
onels and one captain, got out of the
car. I also got out and crawled over
in a big shell hole where I found two
other boys. It was some relief to find
company but of course that didn't stop
the shells from coming. There were
men being hit every once in a while.
It was too dark to see but we could
hear them holler, finally one lit pretty
close to us and one of the boys next
to me got hit. Several pieces went
through the car. We then decided it
was time to move. We did so drop
ping close to the ground every time a
shell burst. I soon lest the other boys
running through the woods to get out
of the thickest of the shell fire. Once
two shells lit so close to me that they
b'cw my, helmet off my head. Maybe
think is wasn't relief when it was
over with. The next morning kept
me busy hauling the wounded back
to a dressing station. They couldn't
get ambulances enough to take care
of them. The wounded that were able
to take care of themselves a little had
to walk. Some that were not wound
ed so very badly were even carrying
those that were helpless. Let me tell
you it was an awful sight, but it has
given many a poor family a chance to
get back to their country and Home
after being prisoners and slaves for
the Iiuns. I have seen hundreds of
them coming back as the Americans
advanced and recaptured town after
town so fast that the Germans didn't
have time "to take their prisoners
along with them as they retreated.
The poor women were sure happy
to get back. They were so filthy and
dirty one could hardly tell that they
ever were white people. The minute
they laid eyes on the American sol
diers they fell on their necks and just
showered them with kisses. They cer
tainly had some story to tell, espec
ially the mothers with children.
I am making this story too long
now and you will get tired. We also
were in the drive for St. Mihiel near
Verdun, also the drive throught the
Argonne forest. I know you have
read'about those places. There are
many other places we have been at but
you wouldn't be near as abt to have
read about them. I will tell you more
about it when I get home.
We have been having pretty good
weather lately. Haven't had any rain
for a long time now but it has been
pretty cold lately.
I wish you good health and happi
ness on Father's Day. May you live
to see many more.
With love and best wishes to you all.
Your loving son
In an interview with Di\ E. F. Ladd.
president of the North Dakota Agri
cultural College, which appeared in
the Fargo "Forum" of December 30,
1018, he gives another view of the
proposal of the Budget Board regard
ing the income of the state educational
institutions. We print these extracts
for the reason that students and fac
ulty members ought to keep well in
formed concerning possible future
changes in the laws governing the
finances of our institutions of higher
learning. The state legislature meets
in a very few days and should attract
considerable attention as to what it
may be able to do for us financially.
Kere is Dr. Ladd's statement:
"The only objection to the repeal
of the law by which the several state
educational institutions receive a
fixed annual appropriation, is the
.fact that the elimination of the pres
ent plan will make it impossible for
the institutions to lay^ their plans
properly, unless some plan is sub
stituted whereby the institutions are
assured of a steady income, and' can
bank on the same over a period of
several years," said Dr. E. F. Ladd,
president the North Dakota Agri
cultural college commenting today
upon the proposed recommendation
by the state budget commission that
colleges be repealed.
The law in question grants to each
educational institution a certain an
nual income, fixed by the legislature
two years ago at a specific figure,
the appropriation in question being
granted in lieu of the mill, tax that
formerly was levied for educational
"To properly conduct the institu
tions and to make plans for contin
ued development of the institution
work, the board of regents and the
school authorities must have some
knowledge well in advance of what
their income will be. The pres
ent plan makes this income certain,"
said Dr. Ladd, "and makes it possible
for the institutions to go along on
a better and more solid foundation.
"In an institution such as the agri
cultural college, for instance, it is.
often advisable to make our plans for
a three to five-year period, which is
now- possible. In the event that the
fixed appropriation is abandoned, it
will be necessary for the board of
regents to receive greater recognition
at the hands of the legislature than

been accorded, when it comes to

TOOK NO CHANCE ON "HANTS''
That Batch of Troopers Didn't Intend
to Be Caught With the "Goods"
There was a colored labor outfit in
the S. O. S. engaged in quarry work
near a base port. few weeks ago,
in the course of opening up some new
ground, tliey discovered an old Roman
burying ground with many skeletons,
coins and relics. The find made quite
an impression on the minds of the find
ers, and there were many speculations
as to whether the shades of the de
parted legionaries still hovered around
in the vicinity of their last resting
place, The general opinion was that
a man ought to b£ on his guard when
out'late at night.
About that time the sum of 60 francs"
disappeared from the counter of a
nearby Y-. M. C. A. hut. The captain
of this outfit doesn't know a great deal
about classroom psychology, but he
has learned a lot about it In the field.
He called his outfit together one night
In the hut and told them of the dis
appearance of the money. Then he
outlined the history and characteris
tics of the old Romans.
"Boys," he said, "there was one
thing a Roman hated worse than any
thing else, and that was a thief. If
the ghosts of those old fellows who
wore buried up there on the hill should
learn that somebody in this outfit had
00 francs in his pocket, I don't know
just what would happen. I'm going to
put my hat here on the table and turn
out the lights. The guilty man will
know what to do."
There was quite a shuffling of feet
and milling around in the hut, and
then all was quiet. When the captain
turned on the lights again and looked
in the hat he found not only the (50
francs, but 300 more, and a few odd
centimes for good measure.—Stars and

PROVED EFFECT OF MICROBES
Experiments Made by French Scientist
Reveal Possibility of Marvelous
Things in the Future.
If there were no microbes men
would grow to .gigantic stature and
have intellectual powers far in ad
vance of those which they possess at
present. What is more, it is possible,
at least, to live without microbes.
Anyway, these are tfie conclusions of
no less an authority than Doctor Roux,
who heads the Pasteur institute in
Paris. They are based upon the re
sult of some experiments carried on
by one of his pupils. Dr. Michael Co
Doctor Cohendy placed some guinea
pigs under glass at the moment of
their birth. The air which they
breathed was thoroughly sterilized, as
was all the food administered to them.
Unquestionably many germs were able
to reach them, but every precaution
known to science and possible with
the application of one of the com
pletest laboratories in the world was
exercised to protect them.
The result rather astounded the doc
tor. The subjects grew with amazing
rapidity, three or four times as fast
as guinea pigs of the same age sub
sisting under normal conditions. In
the brief span of 12 days they were
for the most part a third larger.
Doctor Roux concludes that man, if
under perfect antiseptic conditions
from birth, would develop very far be
yond what is possible as things are
at present. He even hints that with
advancing knowledge, such conditions,
if not attained, will be so approxi
mated as to materially enhance the
physical welfare and mental vigor of

from the Pacific on an ice pack, are
both believed approaching the new Si

Arctic ocean off the mouth of the
Lena river in Siberia. Authorities
credited with knowing the Arctic cur

Greek Girls, Trained Here as Nurses,
Will Do Work of Mercy in Their
Greek girls in the uniforms of
American lted Cross nurses are now
serving in the hospitals of Greece.
These girls are part of a number from
New England who, anxious to help
their fellow countrymen, decided to
become nursins aids, says the public
information bureau, Washington.
They enrolled in training courses in
the Massachusetts General hospital
and other Boston hospitals, where
they soon became proficient in their
work. Recently four ol' them, who
had practically completed their
courses, decided that they would like
to go back to Greece with the Ameri
can mission which was just then about
to leave. Through the Greek legation
they applied for permission to go with
this mission as members of the Amer
ican Red Cross.
Now they are not only serving their
own people, but are also creating a
feeling in Greece which cements the
long friendship of the Greeks with
America. Although no American
troops have been landed on Greek
soil, the people are nevertheless
pleased with the sight of an Ameri
can uniform, no matter what branch
of the service it represents.
Another group of Greek girls in
Boston is taking up courses at Sim
mons college in dietetics, domestic
science and home aid. These girls
also expect shortly to sail for Greece.
