(low*) ADVANCE f HURRAY, JAN, 13, Algona Library Opening Hours: Mon., Tues., Thur., 1:30-6 p.m.; 7-8:30 p.m.; Wed. 9-11:30 a.m.; 1:30-6 p.m.; 7-8:30 p.m.; Fri. 12* 6 p.m.; 7-8:30 p.m.; Sat. 9-11:30 a.m.; 1:30-6 p.m. Many readers, mostly in the middle age bracket, will recall, with a touch of nostalgia, the name of Horatio Alger, Jr., one of the most popular and prolific fiction writers in the history of American literature. His novels were directed towards the moral uplift of youth, stressing honesty and effort—manual, that is. His heroes were always poor, many orphans, who gained fame and fortune the hard way but who succeeded in spite of adversity and circumstances. There is today, an Horatio Alger Society, with annual dues of $5.00 per year and dedicated to the memory of the author who brought joy and inspiration to thousands, yes, millions of youthful and impressionable Alger. written by Ralph D. Gardner, who has made a thorough research into the background and facts concerning Alger. In addition, the library has ten volumes of Alger's most popular novels, made possible by the generosity of Jack Rowe of Clarion, Iowa, who owns over 100 titles and is the largest collector in the midwest. A few'of the new non-fiction books in the Library are Stonehenge Decoded; Holiday Flower Arrangements, Revised, by Cyphers; On Skis toward the North Pole, A Gift of Joy by Helen Hayes. Above and Below is an under the sea adventure by Tom Shelnick; Games People Play by Eric Berne, M.D.; Diary of an Early American Boy, A Gift of Prophecy, and Sammy Davis' biography, Yes I Can. Among the new fiction books are James Baldwin's, Going to Meet the Man, and Michener's, The Source. Others are My Sweet Charlie, Sarkhan, Night at Sea, Airs Above the Ground, The Hotel, and Thomas, which is a novel based on the life of Thomas Becket. In response to a Library Journal book selection survey on books of 1965 which should be on the shelves of virtually every library it is interesting to note how many of these are already in here. Two, which, received the most votes, are .TheO' dore Sorensen's, Kennedy, and Morison's, Oxford History.,< of the American People. Others are the World Almanac, The Making of the President, Up the Down Staircase, Tiny Alice, Herzog, Reader's Encyclopedia, Sample foods readers. As a matter of fact, Alger's novels have been published by the astronomical figure of 400,000,000 copies, largest of any known author. Proceeds from the dues are annually given to some likely boy, preferably an orphan, who seems a prospect for achieving "Fame and Fortune" with this assist. The Society also published a monthly newsletter called "The Newsboy", which includes a serialized Alger-style story. The Algona Public Library has an authentic biography > of A Wilderness Bill of Rights, A Dictionary of Modern English Usage, The Ordways, and For the Union Dead. Some books of merit in our library and considered "neglected" by the Journal are Da vis, Experience of War; the United States in World War II Berkeley: the New Student Re volt, The Liberation of Lord Byron Jones, An • Ancient -Enc my by Pierre Moinot, and the Encyclopedia of U.S. Govern ment Benefits.
