all the men, both olllcers and pi nates

attitude taken by the entue regimint

trial would not only result irr tn-eing

show that the blame for the entire

A College Student's
During the summer of 1911, a college
student appointed sixty agents-undcr-contract
to sell Tin, Svi i kdy Kvlminc,
Post and Thk Ladiis1 Homk Journal
in small towns and villages. By placing
these contracts he earned $425.53 in
commissions and $55.00 in prize money
total $480.53.
We want several college students,
twenty -one years old or over, to do
similar work this summer. We also
have permanent, profitable work for a
number of men able to travel and ap
pointagents to sell our publications.
