Prelimirqry ,lo the course Will be class room instruction to ninth grade general science students on the theoretical side of driving, Mrs. Marion doriklihg .Is tho teacher. . For the practical driving course Allen Slickers will be instructor. Mr. Schupe, who was teacher last summer, the first time the course was offered, will hot be in Algona th'is summer. The course is part of a regular curriculum and expenses are paid by the school. To Furnish New Car The Kent Motor Co., will furnish a new Ford with dual controls for free use as a demonstra* tion car for teaching purposes. . Use of.some part of the fair grounds, is being asked by the school board. Pupils could thus •liftve a place to drive free of traffic hazards. : In the last part of the course, however, some driving will be done, in traffic and on the coun- try highways, .1 •'•",',•;.;' School authorities have, ( d9ked the airport commission, to keep in mind for future use, some,certain part of the new air,-.Held oh which a driver's training ^course could be laid out. It could; then be Used by other schools in- the community. As yet the .commission has not been infor'med As to whether such space will be avail^ able. SO Plan I'd Enter Fifty pupils attended the clinic. At their request school, officials asked permission of tn<? .parents fdr the child to take the summer course. >JSl«V No pupil is enrolled for Dehind- the-wheel driving wi^hjfiut^wr ten consent of the parettisY , Pupils in the classi are approaching the age, 16, at which the may get a driver's license. Classes are designed to make them better and safer * drivers when they are legally 'on the road", /•*,.

Lots of good reasons for it, too. We are in a position lo install such items as complete new furnaces now' —. also coal stokers, oil burner units, hot water heaters, and bathroom equipment. Soms furnaces we've looked at just won't be able to take it another winter. Any way you ligure it, it's smart lo^ j look over ' your present equipment and we'll be glad' . .. >( ...... . . , .lo oner; you the benefit of 'our • experience., and professional knowledge. <-^'<, \ . ' " • ' ' ••' •'•' s ~ j YOU CAN PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK i After you know thai everything is in apple-pie order' in your basement healing equipment, in your bathroom installations, and in such other items as hot water healers and water softeners.

AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE t,S '<* POUND-FOOLISH Not at all. You'd be surprised at how reasonably, for instance, you can install a new fully automatic Winkler stoker on your present furnace—and then get the benefit pf fuel savings and better heat for years. If you are of the opinion that plumbing and heating equipment is sky-high in price, give us a chance to go over the situation with you. SO LET US TRY YOU FOR SIZE * One of our long-time specialties here at Irons' is doing the right job for the right home, A lot pf extra ,cpst coines from labor done right on' the site in plumbing and heating work, so we take the lime to figure Ihe jobs fiomplele, We taijor-make Ihe job io fil yowr r ments. and in the lo yo« • haye an, insis thai is really design ygur job, for THEN YOU WON'T HAVE TO ARGUE fealizntion that part of safety is more than driving skill and quick reactions. Much depends on an attitude of mind. It has been proven thai persons in the late teens and early twenties are quickest in reactions, he'arlng, sight ahd strength, therefore they are .supposed to be the safest drivers, but the actual facts are they have the greatest percentage of accidents. Their only fault is that they take too many risks. Mr. Slickers summer driving classes will be arranged .for the convenience of high school pupils who have summer jobs.

S. senior class play "Night of January 16th", scheduled for April 23 is now well under way, according to Mrs. Poush, who is directing the play. The subject of the play is a mUrder trial, and an unusual feature of it is the recruiting of 12 members' of the audience, to serve as jury. Thesp members will not be "planted" in the audience, but chosen by lot. Jurors selected will be on a professional basis, for they paid a re-. fund amounting to the price of | their ticket to the show. Strictly speaking, this is a play without a heroine, but Maxine Reeimers has been chosen for he leading feminine part; that of Karen Andre, defendant in the murder trial. Nor has it a hero, the principal male role being that of the* prosecuting attorney. Fred Hutzell. The rest of the cast includes: Beverly .Lewis, Bob Reilly, Dolores Brown, pur- wood Lashbrook, Emma ' Lou Shnpson, Wallace Hill, Everett Sparks, Larry Douglas, Helen McVeigh. Charles 'Crapser, Ray Schenck, Barbara Platt, Delores Bowman. Roger Didriksen, Jacqueline Brown. Gus Lund. Cliff Skogstrom, Sue Hutchison. Gloria Lane, Don Rieken, and Melvin Hagg. . -: ' ' Twelve important members of the class remain' to be chosen but they, fortunately,' need no rehearsing, and win 'not-be selected until the night of the performance. They are the jury. who will listen to -the evidence and render the verdict on which will depend which of the two endings written for the play .will ,be used.
