Commonwealth*, Says State
Minnesota Is much further advanced
in the matter of drainage than most
of the other states of the Union, ac
cording to State Auditor Iverson, who
has just returned to St. Paul from the
meeting of the National Drainage con
gress at New Orleans. He said that
Minnesota has been giving attention
to drainage of the state for twenty
years aud some of the other states
have hardly started. Louisiana has
about 10,000,000 acres that are in need
of drainage, Georgia has from 12,000,
000 to 13,000,000 _acres and Florida and
Texas have vast areas unreclaimed

75,000,000 acres of land in the United
States that are in need of drainage.

Several federal officers were in at
tendance at the congress and plans
are being worked out to further co
operation between the federal and
state governments with the local au
thorities in draining the land. The
two reasons sot forth by the congress
for draining are- To remove a menace

useful for agricultural purposes.
PROTECT FOREST RESERVES
Governor and Others Oppose Proposed
Allotment to Indians.
Active opposition has developed to
the bill recently introduced in con-'
gress by Representative Lindbergh of
I Minnesota, which would allot 45,000
acres of land in the national reserve
near Cass Lake to the White Oak
Point band of Chippewa Indians. Gov
ernor Eberhart has telegraphed to Mr.
Lindbergh asking him to try to have
I action on the bill postponed and has
I followed up the telegram with a letter
setting forth the reasons why this al
lotment should not be made. The
state forestry service is up in arms
over this attempt to cut down the area
of the forest reserve and will make
every effort to have the bill defeated.
In a letter replying to Governor
Eberhart's telegram Mr. Lindbergh
says that he introduced the bill on
petition of a committee of Indians.
The bill would give a vast portion of
the southern end of the reserve to
this band of Indians now living on
White Oak Point at Leech lake.
NURSES SAVE THE PATIENTS

Displaying great presence of mind a
corps of trained nurses, under the di
rection of Miss Bertha Johnson, super
intendent, rushed to the east wing of

and rescued fifteen patients from the
dense smoke which filled the building.
The patients were carried out on the
hospital grounds and later removed to
the west wing of the hospital, which is
fireproof. There was little excitement
among the patients and it is believed
none will suffer from the experience,
as they were given prompt attention
by a staff of physicians hurried to the
The fire, of unknown origin, started

will reach $3,000. The nurses, who
had their quarters in the east wing of
the hospital, lost all their personal ef
