Over 600 Taking Swimming Lessons Here After a slow start, activities at Algeria's swimming pool are beginning to gain momentum. Seveal frigid days followed last Thursday's opening, but blue skies, sunshine and beginners' swimming classes three mornings each week have caused a tremendous increase in traffic. At the present time, about 600 children from Algona. Svvea City, Burt, West Bend, Lakota, Ledyard, LuVerne, Livermore and Bancroft are enrolled in either the beginner, intermediate or junior- senior swimming and lifesavings classes. The adult class, which will start as soon as enough persons sign up for instruction, has five persons on the roll now. Enrollment at the present is behind the expected total. Here again, the weather has held sway. However, at this time only '• 30 Algona children are in the various classes, while normally there should be 250. Bible School activities, which are about over, are expected to release another flocd of mipils to the pool. Bancroft's contingent of beginners is the largest—140. There are 120 from West Bend, 60 from Swea City, 50 from LuVerne and Livermore, 40 from Burt and 2U each from Ledyard and Lakota. There are nine regular swimming instructors on duty during the two morning sessions three days week. They are pool manager Howie Stephenson, Ann O'Brien, Jackie VanderWaal, Marcia Stillman, Sheila Sullivan. Julia Bourne, Ursel Scholtes, Bill Dewel and Shag Cook. Six more weeks of instruction remain and it is hoped that all children who want beginners' instruction will sign up at the pool at once. Schedule for the three morning a week lessons is: Bancroft—10:30 Friday Burt—10:30 Monday Wednesday *and Friday Lakota—10:30 Monday Ledyard—10:30 Monday ' Livnrmore - LuVerne — 10:30 Wednesday. Swea City—9:30 Monday, Wednesday and Friday West Bend—9:30 Wednesday Algona children are interspersed with the other groups to give balance to all swimming instruction periods. The adult class, if and when it starts, will bo featured at 6:30 p.m. eacli Wednesday.* Intermediate and junior-senior life saving classes are also held these three mornings. According to Stephenson, a good supply of new swimming suits and towels has been purchased to replace many of the old ones. »-Algbrtti (la.)
