KD'S HAVE EXCEPTIONAL
BISON BREVITY ACT
Last week a Linotype operator's
diminutive knowledge of the Greek
alphabet caused him to eliminate the
name of the Kappa Delta sorority
among the acts which qualified for
the Bison Brevities. According to Foss
Narum, production manager of the
show, the young ladies are very much
in the running, having one of the outstanding acts. Rumor hath it that it
is an act of three dances and all kinds
of music. A dance by Miss Mary
Healy is a "wow", the judges having
never witnessed anything of the sort
before the try-outs.

-Zeta chapter of Phi Omega Pi at the
Makes Good Record
Every student on the campus who is
desirous of securing employment must
register with Mrs. Psyche M. Gooden,
employment secretary lodted in the
"Y", at once, as the fine weather has
exhausted her supply of available students.
In making the appeal for more students, Mrs. Gooden stated that this
extra demand was due to a recent advertising campaign conducted by herself and the spring weather, which
has opened up many new positions.
The matter of registering is acquainting her with the applicant's available
hours and where he can be located at
all times. In speaking of the latter
she pointed out how boys come in
for work; she has none at hand at
that moment; they leave; calls come
in and they want someone at once.
Practically everyone wants their man
at once and the greater majority of
the calls come in when no students
happen to be in the office. In her opinion students who fail to take advantage of the bureau are making a mistake, as the college is furnishing this
service free of charge.
Up-to-date the bureau has furnished
student help in 1,289 homes and 278
business houses in Fargo. The work
has been either part time jobs or
regular positions. A total of 540 students have enrolled in the bureau this
year, 434 men and 106 women. A
careful checkup on the quality of
work done is kept by the employment
secretary in her files. A rate of less
than one percent of dissatisfaction
has resulted during the fall and winter terms, Mrs. Gooden , stated.
"There is no sort of job that students will not tackle," Mrs. Gooden
said. "They do not pick and choose
the kind of work they like, but cheerfully attack with vigor anything offered."
-Girls' work during the winter has
included the following: care of children, cooking, dishwashing, ironing,
cleaning and serving at luncheon and
parties, tutoring work, nurse maids,
stenographers, clerks, store clerks,
summer camp workers, and ushers in

windows, put on screens, helped in

Thordarson To Devote Entire
Time To Correspondence
M. E. Tindall, a graduate from the
school of agriculture in 1922, and more
familiarly known at "Matt," will devote his full time as Secretary of the
Alumni and Former Student Association beginning July 1, 1929, according
to Dr. L. R. Waldron, president of
the association. He will succeed T. W.
Thordarson, '16, who has been devoting one-third time to the duties'of the
Association. Mr. Thordarson will be
on full time in charge of the correspondence courses in the school of
Mr. Tindall comes particularly well
qualified for the position. He was outstanding in collegiate activities. Besides being editor of the Agassiz, now
the Bison, and of the Spectrum, he
was cadet major of the R. 0. T. C.
battalion and active in the Edwin
Booth Dramatic club. Alpha Zeta and
Theta Chi claimed him as member.
He entered -the world war as private
and was commissioned second lieutenant in the field artillery, serving 14
months with the A. E. F. in France.
He is now captain of the local Fargo
Headquarters company of the National guard. Upon graduation, he entered
the services of the Fargo Forum, and
has advanced steadily from reporter
to telegraph editor.
Mr. Tindall is the son of Rev. and
Mrs. G. E. Tindall, St. Cloud, Minn.,
his father being one of the pioneer
ministers of the northern Minnesota
conference of the Methodist Episcopal
church. In 1926 Mr. Tindall married
Mildred Fraser, daughter of Adjutant
General and Mrs. G. A. Fraser, a
former A. C. student and graduate of
the University of North Dakota.
In taking up his new *-ork at this
time, when the institution is obviously
at the threshold of a new development, Mr. Tindall is prepared, with
his customary enthusiasm, to carry
out the proposed program to a successful conclusion, Dr. Waldron believes. That the Alumni Association,

McMillan and Lonsbrough have been
drawn to set the pace in the semifinal match. At the present time McMillan is riding high in the minds of
the railbirds because of his victory
over Schrader in the last card. Lonsbrough, who has fought in but one
series, has also a knockout to his credit and a great battle is expected
when these two lightheavyweights
place their feet in the rosin for the
championship of their group.
The welterweight championship is
being contested by Nick Nelson and
Skjonsby. Both boys are somewhat on
the order of speed merchants and it
is thought that the crowd will be
treated to a fast bout

have been confined to the conditioning
of the gridders in preparation for the
coming week which is to be marked
by some scrimmage. Charging practice, passing, and a small amount of

`Where the College Crowd Gathers'
A business education is a practical education that prepares one
for every-day living. It gives the training necessary for entrance
into the business world where the demand for trained workers is
much geater than the supply. The business world pays a salary
twelve months out of the year with two weeks' vacation on full pay.
Hon. W. T. Harris, Ex-Commissioner of Education, said, "Without a thorough and practical commercial education, a man is like a
ship at sea without a compass or rudder."
Take your course in business training in an accredited school.
