The play crew is an important part of the production, which will be presented in three weeks. - o - MANY MEETINGS were held last week at AHS.

A. met Tuesday to get organized for the state convention; G.R.A. held its regular assembly Wednesday; F.H.A.ers got together Wednesday; Pep Club assembled briefly Monday; all potential footballers met after school Tuesday with Coach Christie; and even the cheerleaders had a gab session. Oh, almost forgot . . . the soccer club held a skull ses- larships picked up applications from their counselors last week. The main stipulation for receiving one of these grants is attendance at a four year Iowa college. Of course, oilier needs are considered on the evaluation of recipients. TRACK STARTED last week. The thinclads began working out last Thursday for the big season. Rumor has it that the team gets new uniforms this year. Also, a new 3-day week plan was begun for those boys wishing to participate in any sport next year, but not wishing to compete in track. - o - "There's someone here who wants to say hello" Even a few gurgled words mean a lot to someone far away. Let Long Distance bring you voice-to-voice with those you love. New reduced rates on many calls make Long Distance a very inexpensive way to keep in touch. Lowest rates in history are now in effect every night after 8 p.m. and all day Sunday. Pick up the phone and enjoy a telephone visit—it's the next best thing to being there. Northwestern Bell i Dialing a distant number is so easy, saves k so much time. Just dial "1" to connect . you with the Long Distance network. , Next, dial the area code (if different from your own). Then, dial the telephone number. It's the fast, personal way to keep in touch. what's new in Electric Ranges? ...total CLEANability! The new electric range is a housewife's drearn ... no more dirty, grease-stained ovens to clean. With the new electric range, the oven cleans itself! • Add total CLEANability to the other advantages of the electric range —cool, fast, fully automatic—and you have the total range. • Of course it's electric! Algona Municipal Utilities CRY FROM room "Where's my podium?" 101: AW GEE, don't cry . . . maybe the faculty will win next year. - o - STUDENTS GOT a 45-minute break last Wednesday when the Student Council Superstars ran over, under, around and through the feeble faculty •- five. The "game" wasn't much of a tension builder, but there were plenty of dazzling plays ... for example, how about the attempted "stuff shot" by Mr. "Spring" Nettleton? If he just could have gotten a little more push off his ladder (Craig Taylor) he'd have made the dunk. Then there were the nice globetrotter tactics of our own "Sweet Sam" Boldridgel - o JUNIORS NEEDED their recess from studies last Wednesday. They were busy preparing their research papers for American literature class. Instructor Sonksen has called for the completion of the papers by sun-up Wednesday. We remember last year's blood, sweat, and tears that went into this major battle; we feel for you, juniors. Does everyone have 50 note- cards? - o - FTA MEMBERS interested in a trip to Des Moines April 1st were supposed to sign up in Miss Sorensen's office. The only cost involved is $1.75 lor lunch. Phyl Moulton, state historian, will be on the platform and Algona has been alloted six voting delegates. Too bad the state convention had to "fall" on a Saturday . . . - o - THE CARNIVAL is coming I the big day is April 1st. The night of the festivities will be action-filled, too — D.J. and the Rottaways will play for the Kiddies attending the soc hop. Actually, they are better known as 1 'The Group" and they supposedly are musicians. Monstrocity singers! SENIORS INTERESTED in applying for local Thompson Schc- CAPITAL JARGON terms: MAN or HEAT is a modern version of "policeman" . . . and you aren't wearing clothes anymore, because they're "threads" now. A clod, scuzz, troll, is bad news. To be called one of these is one of the worst insults of the jet set meaning a person of no consequence; cowardly. Socialistic as it may sound, the new 'word for "friend" is "comrade" ... at least it is at LS.U. CHUKKER - a period of play in polo. - o - The Question Is .... Who Owns Property? The ipicstion is "Who owns it?", and this was referred to the Planning and Zoning Commission by the city council in their regular session Wednesday evening. The commission meets next Tuesday, March 21. Bituminous Materials has requested the city to vacate the south end of McCoy otreet. The company is now constructing a new large storage tank and plans to build an expansion including new office quarters and a laboratory. Manager of the plant is Claude Ruark. Some years ago, the railroad had purchased land from the city north of the tracks. With the request from Mr. Ruark and examination of the abstract, an error in platting has come to light. In some way an error was made from the original platting of the property originally owned by Asa Call. With previous purchase by the railroad, and with the application to the city council to vacated the area up to Poplar Street, the error was discovered. The railroad does not claim the 66 feet width involved, and it is not known if the city still has claim. Russell Buchanan, city attorney, presented an application for Don Tietz and Kyle Keith for annexation of 21 lots with two serving streets. To be platted, it will be known as the Riverside Heights Addition. It will be 350 feet south on Hall and 370 farther west. This proposal was reffered to the Planning and Zoning Commission. Discussed were the sanitary sewer system for the new addition in the southwest part of town, as well as sewers concerning the area of the new high school. Also discussed were storm and sanitary sewer systems in the east part of the city. Grades for five blocks on systems in the east part of the city. Grades for five blocks on McCoy to Spruce were also discussed. Approved was a motion that Howard Smith, representative of Holland and Smith, engineers of Mason City, to study the problems and report his findings to the next meeting of the council. Mr. Smith reviewed maps and plans with the council. Referred to the Planning and Zoning Commission was a request from property owners for the city to vacate an alley in the area of north Minnesota and Park Avenue. A contract was approved with Robert Deal to supply gravel to the city at 18 cents per yard. Also approved was a contract with P & M of Humboldt to furnish 1,000 tons of chips, at a cost of $1.75, with local hauling at $1. Three bids were presented for a truck for the city, which included trade of the used one. Accepted was the low bid of $2,796 from Taylor Motor. Other bids were from Kossutli Motor for a Chevrolet at $2,044.93, and Bradley Implement for a CMC at $2,997. Beer permits were approved for the V.F.W. and for Paul McBride of Tall Paul's Tavern. A recommendation was discussed concerning taking pictures of the interior of sewers to locate trouble spots. No action was taken. Mayor William J. Finn announced that lie has received a notification from Dr. J. B. Harris, Jr., that a trip to Fairmont, Minnesota, has been arranged for the Steering Committee, including Mayor Finn and the council, to take place there- ONLY 25 DAYS t.EFTI .

Magazine Sales People Making New Pitch Here Itinerant magazine salesmen, using the telephone and personal calls, have resulted in several complaints from housewives according to Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst. Here's the way the plan works: A woman calls on the phone, giving a pitch on three free magazines, then winds up telling about a deal for so many cents per week. Then a man calls in person at homes of those indicating they would like to purchase the magazines, telling the prospective customers they must pay for the magazines or the matter will be turned over to the company's attorneys. The sheriff pointed out that housewives who have contacted him have been disturbed over the deal, but shouldn't be, because to his knowledge, there is no legal action that can be taken by the magazine people, especially if no papers, etc. have been signed. 26 Register In School AtBurt BURT — Twenty, six youngsters have registered for kindergarten this fall.
