Wins Loving Cup.
Brookings.—Blrdclla McKnight of
Brooking* has been awarded the sil
ver loving cup for the higm st grade
of work done by secretarial students
in the department of commerce at the
state College. This cup is offered by
E. H. Beatty of this city, and it is
given to no student who docs not
make a high average, and who is not
regularly classified. Worcnce Olson
of Brookings won the amanumensis
speed contest In the department ot
commerce, and has been awarded the
gold medal. Students in this depart
ment have never done such a high
grade of work as this year.
First Expense Accounts Filed.
Pierre —The first to tile expense ac
counts for the primary election was
W. 8. Glass, who admits that it cost
him 4500 to be defeated for congress
in the Second district, and Thomas
Thorson, who spent $286.05 in secur
ing the place of Republican national
Practical Road Making.
Brookings—Tho steam engineering
students at the state college are re
ceiving an unusual amount of practical
experience in handling power machin
ery In the making of good roads in
Brookings. Prof. Solberg is also giv
ing the boys an extra course in prac
tical road building and repairing.
The students have completed three
miles of streets within the Brook
ings city limits. All these streets
and roads have been widened and
graded on a scientific basis.
Great Year For College.
Brookings.—The events of the past
months of the South Dakota State
college marks this as the greatest
year in the history of that Institution.
The fact that practically ail of the
graduates of the 1911 class had been
placed in excellent positions gave the
new year a fllying start in which all
departments seemed to take an equal
interest. In the first {dace, the state
college has been before the people of
South Dakota more than ever before
through its* excellent exhibits at the
state fair; addresses by the professors
at corn shows and farmers’ institutes,
and other public work of the various
professors during commencement
Probably one thing which adver
tised the college more than any other
during the past year was the winning
of the National Dairy Contest at Chi
cago by Russell Jensen of Mitchell,
a student at the state college. This
prize was wop in competition with
twelve leading Institutions in the
country and gave to the winner the
Taft trophy and one or more scholar
ships. Mr. Johnson Sarvis, a grad
uate of the state college was expert
decorator and demonstrator for the
South Dakota car of the "Governor s
Special " There are few men who are
better fitted to handle this kind of
The past year has soon a remarka
ble increase In the number of inquiries
which come to the college asking for
expert information on various sul>-
jects connected with agriculture, en
gineering, stock raising. poultry
breeding, dairy Industry, and other
scientific professions. In this connec
tion it would be well to mention the
success of Dr. Moore with his hog
chol« ra serum. Thousands of dollars
worth of valuable stock has been
saved through the timely correspond
ence with the veterinary department,
of which Dr. Moore is In charge. Dr.
Hume of the agronomy department
has also sent out a gn at deal of infor
mation regarding the testing of seed,
which will save an enormous amount
of money to the farmers of the state.
In this connection at the college was
organized the South Dakota Experi
mental association which has for its
object (he improvement of seed in
South Dakota.
Dr. Olive of the botany department
and Prof Severin, state entomologist,
have made a gr< at many trips in the
interests of those who have difficul
ties with various kinds of plant dis
eases and insects. The extension of
alfalfa raising in South Dakota has
been given a great impetus this year
under the direction of Prof. Hansen.
During the past month the professor
made numerous trials with a device
for transplanting the alfalfa plants in
stead of seed planting
Prof. Solberg has gained more than
state-wide prominence as a booster for
good roads. He has addressed meet
ings in a number of counties in South
Dakota and at various points outside
the state. His students in mechanical
engineering and steam engineering
have been given a great deal of prac
tical experience this spring on the
roads in and surrounding Brookings.
These students have put into excellent
shape about three mile* of streets
within the city limits of Brookings.
The enthusiasm of the student body
in various activities this year was
notable. The state college students
have the reputation all over the state
for the zeal with which they enter
into contests of various kinds. It is
the common thing for special trains to
accompany the athletes on trips, and
this year was no exception. The
demonstration at the Mitchell football
game and at the state meet this year
at Huron with the college military
band attracted a great deal of atten
tion The Glee Club made its second
annual tour through the eastern part
of the state under the mnnanem< nt of
Theo Akin. The debating teams won
unanimous decisions ov< r ttye debat
ers from North Dakota, but lost to
Yankton and Huron. The electrical
show put on by the students and fac
ulty of the engineering department
attracted two thousand visitors from
all parts of the county.
Among other features introduced
this year which created a great deal
of Interest in the work of the state
college were the organizing of the Na
tional Guards in the student militia:
the class in camp cooking; the short
course in automobile instruction, and
the course in journalism, with tho
special trip to Sioux Falls.
Vessey to Leave State.
Pierre—lt has been rumored for a
long time that Governor Vessey would
remove from the state as soon as his
term of office expires, and the follow
ing personal item from the Mitchell
Republican confirms the report:
"Miss Bernice Vessey, daughter of
South Dakota's governor, visited a day
with Miss Alene Wallace, and left
for »he southern part of the state
Miss Vessey said that she would bo
joined by her mother, and that they
would leave for Philadelphia the first
of the week to make their future

"The»e people have a plausible and
self-righteous excuse for their mis

pos of certain bypopcritlcal lawbreak

"They remind me, in fact, of a cer
