Straw Hat Time.
One may now inquire, without
being premature, what kind of a
straw hat his neighbor will wear
this year. But the question will
not provoke a discussion of the
new spring styles-in straws and
their relative merits and popul
arity. Invariably such an intero
gation will bring one or two an
swers, either “.new one” or “iast
year’s.” ’
The straw hat has developed
among the members of the stron
ger sex strange inconsistency.
Men may venture forth in a re
furnished last year’s model but
the most unconventional, wheth
er the owner of a new or ressur
rected grass kelly dare not treat
with disdain the calendar limits
fashions has erected around the
straw hat season. To appear in
public wearing a straw hat before
the season opens and after its
fall closing is to invite suspicions
of eccentricity or rusticity. Only
country squires and retired jud
ges can violate this fashion de
cree with impunit,r.
It may be true that men observe
the rules and edicts of fashion
less strictly than women, but wo
men could not observe any one of
their mutinlicity of vogues and

with schoolastic prepeparation,
none is through with that contin

is the accumulative preparation
of all who are fired with the am
oition and zeal of which success
is born.
Whatever the field of action to
the graduates now seek entrance,
they will find that the price of
advancement, of service and re
ward, is indeed the commence
ment of study and preparation
upon an ever-increasing scale.

like to think that they now are

with advancement—unless they

Welded Links In The Melt
ing Pot.
Do you realize that according
to the U. S. censrs of 1920, there
are 1,023,225 Norwegians in the
United States, either born in Nor
way or one cr both of whose par
ents were foreign born, and that,
and according to the same census,
there are actually upwards of a
half million residents of the
United States who were born in
Norway? These figures become
more significent when we realize
that the population of Norway in
1920 was oidy 2,649,775.
And because of this sturdy ele
ment of Norsemen making- up
the one-hundredth part of Amer
ica’s great “melting pot,” it is
fitting to call attention to May 17,
Norway’s Constitution Day, cele
brated and held dear by
Norsemen wherever they may be.
Under its Constution, adopted
May 17, 1814, Norway became a
constitutional hereditary monar
chy, though by no means absolute,
as the people of that kingdom
exercised and e ijoyed freedom
and legislative power similar i:i
effect to republics. This was due
to a stong national character
backed by a constitution.
The Norsemen love their Con
i t'tution as Americans love theirs.
In fact, the strong individual na- i
tior.al character belonging to the ^
people of Norway, combined with j
iheir conservatism, their develop-1
nent in the a,*ts, music and pain-1
ting,their dire :t decendancy from |
the Vikings of ola, their strength I
in the merchantile marine indus- j
try, (which until the beginning:
of the World war was exceeded
only by Great Brittain, Germany
arid the United States) means
that all Americans can take from
them lessons of strength and loy
To the Norsemen in'America a
word of tribute is due. Allegi
ance is born in him. On a day of
patriotic celebration of an Arner
ican hist* rical event you will find
the American fla^ flying in front
of a Norwegian’s home, perhaps
a little sooner than his neighbor’s
Hag is unfurled. When he speaks,
his words are appreciative of A
merican liberty and of American
institutions. It is born in a Noi -
wegian to be patriotic, and he
readily adjusts himself to condi-j
tions. Because of the sturdy, pa
triotic character of the sons and
daughters of Norwav, America
has added a strong fabric to her
national life.
