Si Roth is general chairman of arrangements for the event, and other general committee members are Earl Spraguc and Don Hemniingsen.

New Teaching Method Miss Hcercn has used the "developing method" of directing for this play. She blocked out her own idea of the action, but not in detail, and then let the actors work out -their own conceptions of the situation. The cast will use its own ideas as to gestures, rate of speed, fa^ cial expression and stage business. This, method is: intended to increase the individuality of the students. EffBURG GROCERY NEW MANAGER AT JOEBLOOM STORE' J. R, Wlndall of Park Falls, Wis., has been named as store manager of the Coast to Coast store here, by Joe Bloom, owner. Mr. Bloom will continue to operate the business, but because of conditions of health which requires him to take things easy, he found it necessary to obtain a competent, full-time manager, and Mr. Windall's selection resulted. The new arrival in Algona business circles is experienced in the business, having been connected with the Coast to Coast organization from 1936 until he went into the navy, where he served for 32 months. Mr. Windall was connected with the central organization of Coast to Coast, in Minneapolis. •He is married and has two children. his wife and, family at present living in Park Falls until such time as he can. find a suitable place for them to live in Algona.

In fact they give the "little fellow" a chance to build that he very likely did not have before. You can do the following without obtaining special permission: 1 — Continue construction begun on or before March 26. 2 — Repair or rebuild structures damaged due to fire, floods, etc., provided cost is under $6,000 and work is started within 60 clays after the disaster. 3 — Repaint, paper, repair or install repairs or replacements pf parts of existing structures, where no structural change is made. 4 — Construction, alteration or installation jobs constitute a single job within the following limits: $400, residences including farm/homes, on residential property for occupancy of five families or less; $1,000, hotels, apartments, and other residential properties for,, more than five ies;^ .$1,000 icornmercial or c^^^m^Kn^'^M (except • resid0nc,jbg}i'- v'CTUKsn hdspitals, schools, public "or charitable institutions; $1,500, factory and other industrial structures; $200, other structures not specifically . mentioned. For any other construction or repair work, specific authorization must be secured as follows: On residential construction application is filed on form CPA- 4386, with the F. H. A. Farm construction must be approved by the county A. A. A. committee. For commercial and industrial work, a new form will shortly be provided. Seventy-one district C. P. A. offices will be soon established to pass upon these applications. A veteran can get lumber to build his own home by (a. applying to the Federal Housing Administration, office in DCS Moines for priority rating, and (b submitting. this priority number to his lumberyard for lumber from a special G.

'• .'':iS|||l^pii«^A; -.?'• ')i 'k^.--y:- : - One thing. 'is certain about Kossuth's returning veterans who married overseas. They didn't lose their, batting eye. ..One of the most recent-arrivals from overseas among the war bride contingent which has been reaching Iowa, is Mrs. Donald Orton, 22, a pretty brunette who served during.the war at 1 a cryptographer in the ministry of war, in London. She arrived in Algona last Thursday morning, having arrived a lew days previous on the S. S. John- Erickson, at New York, with the infant son of the couple, Michael, or as Don prefers to have it "Mike," who is nine months old,' Met On a Train How the English girl met her future husband is an interesting story in itself. Standing five feet, five inches tall, weight 112 Ibs., the young lady was enough to make any American G. I. turn his head- end several did—including Don and a couple of his buddies, Richard and Ralph Cleveland from Goldfield, Iowa, who chanced to be riding on a train into London. Eileen Osborne, who is the chief subject of this story, was on the same train. In true Yank fashion, the boys struck up a little conversation and felt rather sorry for themselves that they didn't know their way around London. Eileen agreed, and'after thinking it over a bit, agreed, to help them out by showing them a few sights. That was on an August 4. On Christmas Day of the same year they were married. ••••'' "I proposed to her ths third lime I was with her," dcc'arpd p6n, whci spe"nt a total of 37 months in England before seeing Father Schenck Dies, Illinois Elizabeth Sphenck arrived home Monday from Fayetle, J.pwa,; where she went lastlweek, called by the serious jllne^sipf her father. & L.

Living In a Trailer Don, like nost'other veterans, was faced with a problem of finding a place,for his bride to live, but he solved it. , Running across a trailer house that was for sale, he bought it, fixed it up, and had no trouble finding parking space on hjs father's acreage near Call State Park, where : the family is now living. - - ' i : Don.plans on entering South Dakota State college at .Brookings, S. D., in June to study horticulture and forestry, and the trailer house may come in very handy in this project, also. Mrs. Orton s.ays that her part of England, "Hertfordshire, is very similar to Iowa, She didn't feel the sense of awe expected in New York because docking at dusk'she missed seeing the skyscrapers and the Statue of Liberty. "I can't get used to your food stores," she confided. "The little pushcarts and so much good food is going to take time to get used to." She has parents living in England, and a brother, and it will probably be a long, long time before she sees them again, but she radiated a spirit of content and pleasure in her new life in America, and its hopes for the future.
