EXCLUSIVE WITH Form Pig Club to Build Girls Dormitory LUTHER COLLEGE SUPPORTERS IN UNIQUE PROJECT Hope to Get Donations of 3,000 Pigs Within 100 Miles of Decorah By STAFF REPRESENTATIVE DECORAH--"I am for easting swine before pearls and not casting pearls before swine." Thus did A. C. Bishop, publisher of the Decorah Public Opinion, coin the phrase that will become the slogan of his plan to build a girls' dormitory for Luther college, raising the money from little pigs. The little pigs--3,000 of them, Mr. Bishop hopes--will be donated by farmers and town people too within a 100 mile radius of Decorah. They -will be donated this spring as pigs, but not actually turned over to the college until they go to market. Ministers Hear Plan Each pig by that time should bring from $12 to S15, which would make available to the college from S25.0QO to $40,000. Nearly 50 Luthe'ran ministers and other friends of the college from northeast Iowa and southeast Minnesota, as well as from parts of Wisconsin and Illinois heard Mr. Bishop explain his plan at a meeting held in Luther's gymnasium Tuesday afternoon. They voted to back the project in their congregations and formed an organization to carry on the campaign. They elected the Rev. Nels Magellsen, Rushford, Minn., chairman of this unique pig club and named the following 10 persons as a central committee to act with the chairman, as follows: Karl Nordgaard. alumni secretary and college field representative, secretary; Publisher Bishop, Decorah; S. S. Heque, athletic director of Luther college: the Rev. George Ulvilden, La Crosse. Wis.; the Rev. J. O. Holum, Westby, Wis.; the Rev. S. J. Strandjord, St. Olaf; the Rev. J. M. Lunde, Mount Sterling, 111.; E. L. Amundson, secretary of the .Decorah Chamber of Commerce: Dr. A. Gullixson. Albert Lea, Minn., and the Rev. S. J. Fretheim, Scarville. Gives First Pig They set $15 as a unit donation representing one pig so that the giving need not be confined to the rural areas. The Rev. Alfred Bredesen, minister of a rural church near Decorah, asked permission to pledge the first pig and the Rev. -O. C. Hellekson, Lake Mills, member of the nominating committee, declared he would give the mate. Other members o£ the nominating committee were Dr. N. Astrup Larson, Decorah, president of the Iowa district of the Norwegian Lutli. eran church, and the Rev. Mr. Fretheim, Scarville. The plan, Mr. Bishop told the assembled clergymen, wasn't original with him. Ben Bear, prominent Decorah merchant who died a year ago, used the same plan to .raise money for the Red Cross in 1918, the publisher stated. In Winneshiek county alone," he said, "a total of 21 carloads of pigs were donated, netting $68,000 for. the Red Cross, putting this community among the leaders in the country. Have Larger Area "Hogs won't bring as much next fall as they did then. But instead of Winneshiek .county alone we have from 12 to 15 counties in which to get pigs. "If we can get 3,000 pigs, bring- Danish Royalty to Visit U. S. ing from 525,000 to §40,000, that will be enough to build the first unit of a dormitory. It is not impossible that some one with wealth will be induced to match this sum. If that is done we can have a S100,- 000 dormitory two-thirds paid for and the room rent will carry the rest." While not a member, he was nevertheless an admirer of the Lutheran church and its educational institutions, the publisher added. He pointed out that since it was founded in 1861 the college has graduated 1,700, of whom 453 became pastors and 509 teachers. "This institution has been a tremendous influence for good," he declared. Suggests Marking Pig In the discussion of the plan the Rev. M. B. Quill, Ridgetfay, suggested that each pig when donated be marked in some significant manner. The Rev. H. M. Norman, Cresco, pointed out the marked pig might die and that It were better that the donation consisted of a check for the proceeds from one hog when the animal is marketed. Dr. O. J. H. Preus, president of the college, expressed sincere appreciation for the campaign, i. the New Quiet LEONARD the Master Dial tune in the temperature you need.

Mrs. Preus, wife of the president and president of the college woman's club, brought greetings from that organization, which also was in session Tuesday afternoon. The presence of ,co-eds on the campus brought the attention of visitors to the need ot housing facilities for girl students. Now Co-Educational It also revealed that Luther college, steeped in the traditions o[ a men's school for 75 years, now is becoming a fullfledged\co-edu- cational institution. It was three years a g o ' t h a t the college received permission of the Norwegian Lutheran church to swell enrollment and stabilize the finances, which had tottered near the brink during depression years, by allowing girls to matriculate. Since then there has been a stead}' growth in the proportion of girl students until this year they number 163 out of a total of 488 students. It is plain to everyone that the building of a girls' dormitory is the next step in the unfolding OE Luther college as a co-educational institution of higher learning. This year the last class of students entering the school under the old order will be graduated. Starting next year all classes will have a large proportion of girls. Live in Homes The only campus facilities for these girls is the socalled campus house, former residence of the Luther college president, and two other college homes, which house about IB each. Others are quartered in approved private homes near the campus. Lack of dormitory facilities was one of the arguments advanced by the standpatters when the idea was suggested that Luther college, for 75 years strictly a men's school, also admit girls as students. At first the church body was cool to the ideu. but local residents, .seeing the possibilities of n significant expansion in enroll- 1 mcnt under this plan, continued to press their arguments. They even j started what was known as the Decorah college for girls and borrowed instructors from Luther I college, in order to have a nucleus of girl students ready when pcr- | mission finally was granted. Student Body Enlarged Admission of girls immediately began to show an expansion in registrations and it wasn't lonj before Luther as a co-educationa 1 college was accepted generally as I a sensible thing. That the girls in the s h o r I time they have been a part o Luther's student life have alread developed important extra-curric 1 ular activities was shown in the appearance of a chorus of 60 voices, as well as a most remarkable vocal trio. A male quartet also entertained with some! fine [ harmony. Before the discussion of dormitory was presented, P 1 fcssor Rcque. who besides being j athletic director, is also a teacher o{ French and nn authority on the early history of Ihe college and the community, told something of the early struggles of the institution, pointing out that such items as produce and meat were donated by the farmers. The fact that interest in the future of the college was evident among non-Lutherans of the community elicited expressions of gratification among the ministers. Enthusiastic support for t h e project was evident among the group in attendance.

Delaware, Phone 1567 Kings 19:15-18. The passage burns with ancient enmities, but for us -- as for Elijah -- it indicates the third step in deliverance from "defeatism;" the return in action and obedience to the immediate duty. "Do the next thing" is the wisest of injunctions -- if only the "next thing" be what good-will and sensitive insight direct. In spite of al" our excuses most of us know the "next thing." It may be near as our own threshold. It may be will' or for husband, wife, child, friend dishes to be washed or a field to be ploughed. But it is deliverance anc power; action controlled by love and clutyalways gets us out of our .shadows and away from our fears. "Doubt" say the wise, "cannot be removed save by action." "Do the nearest duty to thee," says Carlyle, "which thou knowest to be a duty! Thy second duty will already have become clearer." Prayer: "O Master, let me walk with Thee In lonely paths of service free; * * * In work that keeps faith sweet and strong, In trust that triumphs over wrong; n peace that only Thou canst give. With Thee. O Master, let me live." Amen. urown Block Placed on Derrick to Test Oil at Liberty, Mo.' LIBERTY. Mo..
