The Algona Upper Boa Moines, Algona, IOWA, Hot. 9,1033 HUNDREDS OBSERVE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF LOCAL CHURCH (Continued from Page One) tfclleved the survivors were stimulated by the vigor and self-reliance of the pioneer group. In another thought Mr. Ingham brought out the question of whether the present conditions were not partly due to our easy going way of getting rich on borrowed paper, and compared It to the way the early day folk felt that they had accomplished their life •work when they paid back the money they had borrowed to finance a farm, a home or business. Mr. Ingham cited the fact that the early history of the entire country is linked with the pioneer fathers and preachers, who like Father Taylor, had all lived for a cause, with a purpose near enough right to make a start toward tremendous progress. He brought to mind the Individualism of the Pilgrim Fathers whose claim that the church was for the individual made 1 them insist that every man, woman and child must know how to read the Bible, and who in an effort to attain that end, started schools and colleges with the result that today everyone goes to , school regardless of whether or not he pays taxes. It was the zeal of the , pioneers which swept the country to . continue the education so all can read, , and that effort is still going forward because of our zeal.

The distribution will be judlcated by the court* among the states without any war a thing, which would be impossible anywhere else. An other incident of a similar nature which Mr. Ingham recalled wse jfchat the Missouri line was settled because the Missouri men got tired waiting for the Iowa men to come and fight it out. It was Mr. Inghanvs belief that the institutions Which have made us what we are today will spread and the cost of armaments in time be eliminated. As a concluding thought Mr. Ingham stated that there was no object in studying yesterday except to leflrn to go forward with the same zeal for causes which has carried the American people forward making this country a great and domineering nation. Father Taylor and others like him set the example with their zeal and devotion for which we owe them everything. Reviews Women's Work Another speaker on the program was Mrs. W. Parsons of Des Moines whose subject was "Work of Pioneer Women in the Early church." Mrs. Parsons was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. James Paine. She is a niece of Dunt Smith of Algona.
