o'clock on Stoll Held against the

The Wildcats have been put

An eight-week- s'
course in mining opened Tuesday
with Prof. Phillip C. Emarth as instructor. The course is being attended by about 20 mine employees
from all parts of the state.
The course is conducted for the
purpose of enabling men in the coal
fields to receive instruction so that
they may pass the examination for
foremen. The first six weeks offer
practical instruction in such subjects as mine ventilation, drainage,
and gases, and the last two weeks
are devoted to training in first aid
and mine rescue work. For this, the
United States bureau of mines sends
a training car to the University. At
the end of the eight weeks John
Daniel, state mine department chief,
conducts the examination for certificates.
