Girls For Home
"For an average girl who in
tends to make marriage her chief
business and thank heaven, they
are still in the majority to waste
four precious years, that ought to
be devoted to romantic adventure,
at college seems tragic," says Nina
Wilcox PutnAtn in a recent maga
zine article. I think It is a heap
more important to get married
than to go to college and I sin
cerely believe that college Inter
reres with marriage, at least a
Miss Putnam believes that col
lege should be kept for grinds and
our "marriageable daughters
should strut their stuff at home,
If a girl wants an occupation, the
author believes that she should get
a job, which will teach her more
in a month that will be of real
value to her tnan she'll get out of
four years at a college.
"It seems to me that the usual
girl who attends a co-educational
college lacks that romantic illusion
wnich is such a precious posession.
She becomes bored and sophisti
cated about sex because of its fa
miliarity to her while she is yet
too young to get a proper kick
out of it. However, I believe there
is a lot to be said in favor of co
educational colleges. In fact, the
worst that can be said about them
Is that they throw people of op
pose sexes who are still pretty
young for the task, Into a lot of
grownup situations which they are
really not capable of handling."
says Miss Putnam.
"How can a girl be interested in
a home if she is given no training
in regards to one?" the writer
asks. "She nevr sees a home ex
cept between dances during holi
days. How can she be expected to
make a good cake when she is
only expected to make whoopee?
Just as long as husbands have
stomachs, good home made pie
will mean more to them than their
wife's college reunions."
And moreover, men simply
don't take the average college
girl's career seriously. The girl
whose career in college is worth
considering seriously, eligible men
are not apt to know well enough
to discuss. And unquetionably the
average boy at college still has

LINCOLN MAN GIVEN
Prof. R. H. Haecker Gets
Honor for Work in
Prot. T. H. Haecker, pioneer in
dairy work in Minnesota and now
a resident of Lincoln, was given
agriculture's highest honor Tues
day, when the American Farm
Bureau federation bestowed upon
him its distinguished service
Word of the honor was received
from Boston, where the federation
Is holding its national convention.
It was given to two others also,
one a man and one a woman.
The honor came to the Lincoln
man for his work In founding the
co-operative dairy system in Min
nesota. for research In livestock
and co-operative marketing, and
for organizing the farm creamery
system which has resulted in Land
o' Lakes, inc., wnich has 4uu mem
ber creameries in Minnesota.
Lives With Son.
The first knowledge that Pro
fessor Haecker had of the award
came to him when he was tele
phened by a Lincoln newspaper
this morning. He is spending the
winter in Lincoln with his son, who
is secretary of the Nebraska
creamery butter manufacturers as
Professor Haecker was recently
named one of the "Twelve Apos
tles " of Minnesota for his work in
feding of dairy livestock in his
pioneering efforts in co-operative
creameries by the late William f,
Folwell, former president of the
University of Minnesota in a com
pilation of the history of the state.
His early youth was spent on a
farm ten miles from Madison, Wis.,
and his interest developed early in
the caring for dairy cattle and
bettering their production. Mr.
Haecker said, "I attended the first
dairy school founded in the United
States at the University of Wis
consin. I enrolled in the course
one Monday, and the next Monday
I was on the teaching staff aug
menting the theoretical knowcldge
of the teaching staff with my prac
tical knowledge. Within four weeks
after the school opened I was in
vited to Minnesota to organize the
dairying school there.
Was Executive Clerk.
"Previous to this time I had
served seventeen years as execu
tive clerk to the governor of Wis
consin, being originally appointed
by Gov. W. R. Taylor, who had a
farm adjacent to ours. I was
given the "grand bounce" when a
democrat came into office, and
thus came about the trend of
events that led to my going to
"During my first spring in Min
nesota I was commissioned to
make a survey of dairy conditions
in the state. I found them in de
plorable shape with both consum
ers and producers thoroughly dis
gusted. Churning plants were
scattered over the state, and often
times the consumer was getting a
low grade price. I found this con
dition prevalent until I arrived at
Clarks Grove, where a plant man
aged and operated by the produc
ers was on a paying basis. The
price obtained for their products
was ten to fourteen cents higner
than other farmers were getting."
It was from this bit of informa
tion that Professor Haecker, aided
by the faculty of whom A. J. Mc-
Guire, of the Land o' Lakes asso
ciation, is now general manager,
developed the, co-operative move
ment. The mentioned association
during 1929 shipped 738 carloads
of cream, and did a business of
Thus during the first part of
Professor Haecker's residence in
Minnesota, he spent the winter six
months in the class rooms and the
other six developing the creamery
industry in the state. Research
work in feeding and methods of
obtaining the largest production
from dairy cattle kept him busy.
His search for new standards in
milk and meat products occupied
his time for twentyjseven years

Phi Gams, Fijis Throw Eggs and
Amuse Selves at Annual Field Day
Formlne a parade more than a
block in length, the PI Gamms
and Sig Alpha, Saturday cele
brated the second annual field day
between the two fraternities with
a procession from the Phi Gamm
house to the Sig Alph household
and then to the stadium where the
contests of the day wero held.
Keith Hopewell, the Fiji challen
ger, mounted upon a white plug,
led the parade.
The events of the afternoon
starting with the parade were:
the bicycle race, won by the Sig
Alphs, a soccer game, also won by
the S. A. E.'s and a freshman spe
ciality, consisting of tossing rotten
until his retirement Aug. 1, 1918,
from the staff of the university.
"My work has never been pub
licized," he said, "because even aa
there is opposition now to the
farm board, so In those days influ
ential political men in St. Paul
and elsewhere opposed the estab
lishment of co-operative cream
eries which threatened the exist
ence of their private plants. And
so in a quiet way my work went
on out in the stt with the farm
ers, wiht the practicability of the
movement proven by present re
sults." The acknowledgment of his
work comes in Professor Haecker's
eighty-fourth year. He celebrated
that birthday in May. The keen
interest he takes in life, and the
appearance which belies his age
may be creulted to the lifelong
interest he has taken in bettering
the farmer s condition thru the ap
plication of scientific methods to
He feels that the farmer is ap
preciative of steps taken In his
behalf, but that private interests
are the main obstacle to general
improvements when I hey feel that
their own interests may be harmed
thru any advanced step.

Some attack and annoy man and

Useful products or articles of

much about that life."
