The Gov. Johnson Memorial.
Last Saturday afternoon, Oct. 19,
occurred the unveiling of the John
Albert Johnson statue in front of
the State Capitol at St. Paul. Con
tributions were received for this
memorial from every county in the
state. The total laised was $24,
072.71, of which $31'/.61 came from
Kandiyohi county. Of the latter
amount $89.15 came thru the Will
mar Tribune and $86.12 from the
schools of the county. The amounts
contributed by each was made small
so that the fund would represent a
gift from the many rather than largt
gifts from a few. It is likely that
the Kandiyohi connty quota repres
ented donations from 2,000 people
including the school children who
gave pennies or nickles.
The statue presents a heroic like
ness of the late Gov. Johnson in
bronze. The four figures on the ped

Former Years—Improve

Three weeks have passed since
the Willmar Seminary began its 31st
school year. Everything this year
points to a record breaking year. It
is very many years since so many
students were enrolled at this time
of the year. On "Monday, Oct. 21st
there were 83 students enrolled.
This is 17 more than the enrollment
last year for the same time.
The fact that we were unable to
get the work on the new heating
plant and the new gymnasium com
pleted last summer, is a slight han
dicap. But the work is now pro
gressing rapidly, and we hope soon
to be able to announce that the work
is all completed. When'completed it
will be a great improvement in the
Seminary. The new heating plant
will be a good one. It will be guar
anteed to heat every room in the
building to a temperature of 70 de
grees in the coldest weather. The
new gymnasium will, of course, fill
a long felt want. Previous years we
have been obliged to rent a hall if
we wished to partake in winter
in-door athletics. We will now have
a hall large enough for all sorts of
indoor contests, including basketball.
This room has also been equipped
with an excellent stage and two
small dressing rooms. This room
will now serve as gymnasium, assem
bly room and chapel. A few other
minor improvements, have also been
The faculty counts two new mem
bers. Miss Leonora Boyd of this
city has taken the place of Miss
Gudmundson in charge of the Sten
ography Department. Miss Evelyn
Grindeland of Warren, Minn., has
taken charge of the Music Depart
ment, This department is a new
feature at the Seminary. The fact
that the Seminary has secured the
services of as able a musician as
Miss Grindeland, injures the success
of this lfcp~artment from the' start.
Vocal and instrumental lessons are
given. Many have already enrolled
for music and many more are ex
pected. Anyone c*»ti register in this
Department whether they attend the
Seminary or not.
In athletics the Seminary has much
good material this year. A football
team has already been in the field
for two weeks. They have played
two games and have acquitted them
selves with great credit altho one of
the games was a defeat. The most
important game of the schedule
comes next Tuesday, when the Sem
inary meets the local high school.
The Seminary and the high school
are naturally keen rivals in athlet
ics. This rivalry is however, caus
ing, if anything, a more friendly
spirit between the schools than has
existed in years past. This is as it
should be. The keener the rivalry
the better as long as it is friendly
and does not breed ill will. These
athletic contests between the high
school and Seminary are of great
financial benefit to the athletic de
partments of both schools.

already begun the year's work and

Read the New Story.
On pages nine and ten of this is
sue we give a liberal opening in
stallment of our new serial story
"The Boot of Evil". The Wilhnar
Tribune does not make a practice of
running serial stories unless we
find a good one with some purpose
back of it. "The Root of Evil" is
written by Thomas Dixon, the au
thor of "The Clansman" and "The
Leopard's Spots". It tells of vitally
interesting phases of everyday life
in big business, political and social
circles, and teaches a great lesson
that the resistance of temptation and
perseverance in an honest purpose
will be rewarded in the end by com
plete happiness. Mr. Dixon has
won wide reputation as an author
of novels of the most stirring sort.
We recommend "The Root of Evil'7
to our readers as one of bis best.
