To Minneapolis for new cars Jack Row of Clarion,. Iowa, possessor of the third largest collection df Horatio AJger books in the United States, gave the Algona Public Library "plug" over WHO radio station a few weeks ago. Mr. Row, for a small refrnun eration, has presented the local library with about 20 copies of cloth bound volumes of some of the most pooular titles thai this prolific author—thought to be the world's largest contributor to the field of letters—has written. Some estimates of his production run into the millions. While some of the books are slightly thumb marked and yellow with age, they will dtelight many readers for nostalgic reasons. Probably few men and even women, in their 60's have, not read these thrilling tales of heroism. The theme is always the same—the poor boy, often an ornhan, who has succeeded bv dint of honesty, industry and all the various virtues. While Horatio Alger could DEAN f AYLOR ANb Harold Kuchenreuther bf Taylor Motor Co. were among representatives of 60 dealerships in Lincoln-Mercury bivision's twin Cities district participating in a mid-winter driveaway of 66 1966 Cdmet hardtops* which had been shipped to Ford Motor 'Company's Twin Cities assembly plant. Dealers and their top salesmen from Minnesota, North Dakota and -portions of South Dakota, Iowa and Wis- consin met at the Radisson Hotel in Minneapolis, Minn., for a New Orleans-style rally, even though temperatures called for parkas and fur-lined gloves and boots. Dealers received a warm send-off from William J. Moriarty, the division's Twin Cities district manager, before driving home their specially- painted orange arid black Comets. scarcely bs called a literary genius, still his books, from the standpoint of sheer popularity, must command a certain respect. Many phrases are stilted and antiquated which only adds to their clwmn. We would even recommend the reading of one or two of these volumes to youthful readers who might gain profit from observing the vast difference between what Alger wrote and what our modern generation of authors has given us in the trashy paper backs on sale today.

If you are a middle aged per son of either sex, we heartily recommend a perusal of -one or two of these choice volumes and we may safely predict that they will bring back happy memories of the days when such reading was popular. We might add that many at tics still contain some of Al ger's books and since they of ten command almost fantastic prices for collectors, it migh' pay handsomely to begin a sea rch for them among your old books. If you find any of Horatio Al ger's books in your attic or book shelves, kindly bring them to the library—either as a gif or for profit. Mr. Row will eval uate them. SHOWER IS DATED Marlene E.
