They likewise sported brass rings in either ear. They sat down in the lobby of the hotel and looked out on the muddy street and watched the many pedestrians and vehicles pass and repass in the rain. They smoked very poor cigars, and did these sons of the forest. They came up to see the governor and departed for home last night.

By Associated Press.
PALMER, Alaska, Friday, July 5.-A rapid reorganization of construction work in the Matanuska colonization project was under way today with Eugene Carr, relief administration "trouble-shooter" in charge as nine colonists' families prepared to return to the states.

Eight superintendents will be put in charge of the building program. About 200 or moere skilled laborers were due here tonight from Alaska points to go to work.

"Things will move." Asserted Carr, sent here after the United States Senate asked a report on conditions after colonists had complained of inefficiency, "and heaven help the man, colonist or otherwise, who doesn't work."

The returning colonists will leave Friday for Seattle on the motorship North Star of the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

The families with their reasons for returning follow:

Herman Splittgerber, wife and two children, of Hinckley, Minn., because of Mrs. Splittgerber's health.

John Holler and wife of Pine City, Minn., because of Mrs. Holler's health and dissatisfaction with the type of colonists.

Otto Fisher, wife and one child, of Ogilvie, Minn., because of the dissatisfaction with the type of colonists and the country.

Robert Durfey, wife and three children of Cheboygan, Mich., because of "doctor's orders."

Arthur Moses, wife and one child, of Big Fork, Minn., "I am not an agitator or am I going back to condemn the colony." Moses said, "but I feel I cannot do as well here as back in the states. My biggest complaint is the type of houses which will be built. I left a good log cabin in the states."

Clarence Anderson and family, Sawyer County, Wis., "dissatisfied."

Matt Saaerela, wife and child of Swan River, Minn., "I left home with the idea the colony was a cooperative enterprise, but I find the type of people sent here are not cooperative-minded." He said. "We Finns believe in cooperation with our whole heart and soul."

Charles Cousineau, sister, wife and child of Roscommon, Wis., "dissatisfied."

Martin Smith, wife and six children of Ewen, Mich., "dissatisfied."

Lawrence Rossiter, single, of Cloquet, Minn., said he was returning because he did not find the work he expected. He came with his brother.

Some of those leaving still have unpaid bills. They will have government transportation to Seattle, but must pay for their meals and find their way home from Seattle.

Mr. and Mrs. Schauland of Holyoke Decide to Take Agricultural Course.

St. Paul, Minn.-The "back to the farm" slogan was emphasized here recently when Mr. and Mrs. Albert Schauland of Holyoke, Minn. decided to spend their honeymoon at the state agricultural college learning the things farmers need to know instead of taking a trip.

Mr. and Mrs. Schauland will be known at the college as number 103 and 104 and will devote six weeks to the short course in up-to-date farming. The husband will make a specialty of the farm machinery course and the wife will endeavor to get all she can out of the domestic science and economical farm work department for women.

After completing their unique six weeks' honeymoon the couple intend to purchase a small dairy farm and retire to the country, where everything is milk and honey. Both have lived in the city for years, but accumulated a rudimentary education in farming methods while children.
