Dept* of Hi*to*y afld Moines 19, Iowa ^ By Russ Waller Over at Sexiow, there was quite a fire scare at the Kelley home, when smoke began pour* ing out of the basement. But the proved to be an exception to the me that whe?e there's smoke there is. fire, Our Sexton cor- Despondent, ventures the guess that Bob Kelley, will never again lay a pair of gloves,on top of the furnace to dry. „• -'*.».*,.. ^ Last Wednesday afternoon was to pe just a two hour coffee party at Marie Lichter's home. At . least, that is what Ariri£ Willrett expected; And w'hen Marie suggested that everyone sing "Happy Birthday" Anne sang right along with the rest, Wondering whose birthday it was:; -Then the light dawned, when the^H neighbors reached the finish .and sang"Happy Birthday, .Dear Anne." Her birthday was Saturday, but the neighbors decided to move the surpprise up a few .days because of the busy .Christmas season,' and' gifts and a bountiful lunch .were added to,,the .coffee. . hour. Guests were Alta Oxley, Elaine Hagg, Alice'Miller, Marf aret Wheeler, Rosella Cogley, velyn McEnroe, .Camilla Engstrom, Dorothy Rueb; Hilda Meyer, Mary Rousseau, Evelyn Oakland, Evelyn Prbthman, t, Viola Crowley and Anne.

Seems that in the process,of studying Iowa and famous lowans, he decided to send, a note to 'Mrs Mayme Eisenhower.

When Algona bus driver Chet Cook went outside following the final game to start the heater and warm things up in the bus, he found all of the seats full of snow that had apparently been shoveled there. He laboriously and good-naturedly removed it, and most of .the passengers home didn't know the prank had taken place. The Emmetsburg bus driver probably won't get to see much of the game when his team pays a return visit to Algona, Tuesday, Dec. 14. • • • AH our life we had assumed that a visit to the icebox along late in the evening was just a normal desire to pick up a snack before going to sleep. Then the other day we read an article by some psychologist who says that making a midnight visit to the icebox is a sign of any number of things, such as (I) loneliness ahd in need of affection and warmth, (2) victim of a fiercely, ambitious drive, (3) a lack of a feeling of security, (4) lack of feeling and substance, (5) a resentment toward authority, (6) a detachment complex. Those psychologists are always taking the joy out of life. » * • One little girl in a local home, whose Daddy happens to be a rather ardent Democrat, posed this question to her father the other evening: "Daddy, how come when you say those naughty words about the Republicans, Mommy doesn't wash your mouth out?" 9 * » r«mout U»t Line-WbU's that slip of paper under you* wiadiMeld wiper?

Bartlett gave a general summary "of the local school situ'a- tion as 1 to enrollment^, present and future, and while he was not speaking for the 'entire, committee, which has only begun to study the situation, he offered the suggestion of two new school buildings as a possibility to be 'decided sometime in the' near ^future. ' ' 33 On Study Group • The Algona Citizens School .Committee was selected by the iBoard of Education, and an organization meeting of the group iwas held Nov. 23. Bartlett was ; named as chairman of the 33 per- ispn unit. :' Since the first organization of .tjhe group, Dick Phillips has been jr/amed as chairman of a building .site committee, Brail Wright has jbeen named chairman of a building construction recommendation 'committee, Eugene Hutchins has ;been named chairman of a subcommittee to study all present buildings and their condition in details, and Mrs Robert McCullough has been named chairman of the public relations committee. Bartlett said that the general ( r. ; by the school ' board was to have outside help in solving the problems that exist. Chester Schoby is vice chairman of the general committee and Mrs Dorothy Dewel is executive secretary. , Add To Or Build New? "I think it is foolish to .put money into structures 50 or so years old," Bartlett said, "and it might be better to put the money into new ouildings and a new construction program." The year' 1960 will be the peak year in the public school system based on present population and the school age survey, he said. At present there is an enrollment of 480 in the junior-senior high school, and by 1960 there will be 653 in the junior-senior high based on present enrollments. "Perhaps it would be smart to think in terms of new school units", he said. "The cheapest way to do anything is to do it properly, and a new building at a cost of perhaps $300,000 right be a proposal that would lit the needs and the situation in 1956.'He pointed out that because there is considerable time involved in calling for an election, voting, selling bonds, calling for construction bids, and construction itself, the school district should be thinking about the matter right now. The chairman of the committee voiced the view that it was bad to have over 30 pupils in a class, and that 25 was about right- end on that basis the iocal public schools will need six additional classrooms by 1956, but will still be using the present cubbyholes which were altered this year for classrooms, he said. -The Lucia Wallace building, completed several years ago at a cost of about a quarter of a million dollars, was built with a thought of expansion, but Bartlett said that maybe the better way would be to acquire ground and construct an entirely new school. The recent school district reorganization brought in only 150 extra students, he added, but it was his belief that future planning was necessary now. He added that the Third Ward school was very poorly located, due to the Northwestern tracks, and that perhaps an entirely new school in the east portion of Algona 'should be considered. Cost of such construction he estimated at about $300,000. No estimate was given on possible cost of a new high school. Spreading The Cost On the basis of the present tax valuation in the expanded school district, Bartlett said the new school construction spread out over a period of years would not bear too heavily on the taxpayers. When the Algona Citizens School C.Qmmittee completes its study, the 4Wi joint recom- men.datipns will be presented to {he AJgc-nf "Bo,a?d of Education. ^rogflf Wf mbf &&& of, 'the committee is as follows: Eugene Hutjhins, Mrs A. L. Benschoter, Mrs Pan Bray, Bob To Give 100 Free Turkeys Away Here Monday Night One hundred turkeys will be given away free In Algona next Monday evening at 9 p.m. All anyone has to do to be eligible for a chance to get a choice bird, averaging 10 to 12 Ibs, is to register in any of the participating Algona stores, which will have window signs indicating they are "in" on the turkey deal. No purchase is required. The number of free turkeys being sponsored by stores varies, but many are giving away two and three turkeys to those registering Monday, Dec. 13—it will be a lucky, 13th for 100 families.' And nobody has io be. present 10 win. Plans are to pick up the registration boxes from each of the participating firms and draw from them at the Chamber of Commerce office. There will be no duplication of awards; if someone has already won a turkey thdy will be ineligible for a second one. Registrations will end ai 8 p.m. next Monday, Santa Claus will conduct the drawing. In the picture,' little Mary Lou Koch, 4, daughter of Sgt. and Mrs Ewald Koch of Algona, is pointing io a flock of turkeys, just like the ones "to be given away, except that winners will receive a coupon entitling them to get their turkey, dressed and ready for the oven, at a designated local meat market. 138 Register In Night School A surprisingly large opening night crowd of 138 attended the first session of the annual Farmer's Night School at the high school annex Monday night. Dr. Wallace Ogg, extension economist at Iowa State College, talked to the assemblage on the farm outlook for 1955 and future years, and then conducted a question and answer period for the airing of problems on the farm. Dr. Ogg's opinion indicated farm .incomes will drop, providing the United State remains in its so-called peace-time status, and that prices of items farmers must buy will also drop, but not in comparison with incomes. Of the total in attendance, 115 enrolled for the ten-meeting course, which, according to Geo. Sefrit, Vocational Ag teacher who is instructor for the school, is about the same number that signed up the first night last year when total enrollment reached 165. Next Monday's meeting at 8 p.m. will feature swine management and disease control. Herb Pike, farmer, and master swine producer at Whiting, Iowa, will be the featured speaker. Enrollment for the course is still open. The Algona Chamber of Commerce furnished coffee and doughnuts for the group following the meeting.
