So, are Beadle and Ward worthy enough to remain in Statuary Hall, or are either or both the James Harlan of South Dakota, good enough at the time but ready to be replaced?

Beadle's statue was the first of a South Dakotan to stand in the National Statuary Hall.

in 1963. In Yankton, Ward opened a private school that later became the earliest high school in Dakota Territory. He helped found Yankton College, which closed in 1984, and was a leader in the statehood movement, composed the state motto "Under God the people rule," and wrote the description for the state seal.

is . well, you probably drew a blank. Which is a pity, because Statuary Hall is reserved for those who make a mark on our country's history. And if we don't know the names of those we (a very generic we) have chosen to stand there, then perhaps their accomplishments have not stood the test of time.

The main question, of course, is who should replace them? A politician is the obvious answer, but which politician? A case could be made for the Georges: Gov. Mickelson or McGovern.

Harlan's accomplishments as senator, whatever they were, apparently did not stand the test of time. For decades, he was destined to stand in Statuary Hall forever, but several years ago, Congress agreed to allow states to honor more contemporary figures.

The subject of who South Dakota has placed in Statuary Hall came up last week when I interviewed Benjamin Victor, an Aberdeen sculptor who is having his second piece unveiled there. He was chosen to sculpt crop researcher Norman Borlaug for the Adidas Sl Loop Solar Red state of Iowa. Sen. James Harlan and Samuel Kirkwood, the state's governor during the Civil War. Harlan's statue had a 104 year run, but he has been demoted to stand in Mount Pleasant, Iowa, where he lived when he served as a college president.

Maybe they have. Beadle, whose bronze statue was given to the national collection in 1938 on the 100th anniversary of his birth, was a brigadier general in the Union Army during the Civil War, surveyor general of Dakota Territory, a strong proponent of setting aside school lands, and a college professor.

None of those suggestions are without flaws. And you may have suggestions of your own. I'd like to hear them. What do you think? Should Beadle and Ward stay, or should they go?
