HOTEL ALGONA Mr. Ed Boss, Boss Hotals Mr. and Mrs. Jess George and Entire Staff Hi Jinks * * * * Berated to "iehind the 3eefi«»" Items from Algon* High School. This poem is written with al! duo apology to Clement Moore, who wrote A Visit From Si- Nicholas and to the Sophomore class, whose inspired skit furnished me with one of the gifts. A visit TO AHS rnoM JOLLY ST. NICHOLAS 'Twas the day before Chrismas, when all through the school Not a creature was, stirring, as is usually the rule; The stockings were hung by the desks with great care, In- hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there; The children were nestled all srfug in their chairs, While visions of A's and B's danced through their prayers; When out in the hall there arose such a clatter, They sprang to their feet to see what was the matter. Away to the doorway they flew with a roar. Twisted the doorknob, threw open the door. Whfn, what to their wondering eyes should appear, But a miniature A, and eight tiny reindeer, PHONE 1100 - YOUR NEWSPAPER ALGONA REFRIGERATION Harry Barton NORTON MACHINE WORKS ALGONA, With a little old driver, so lively and ^uick, They knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name: "Now, Legler; - Now, Miller! Now, Palmer, and Stephenson! On, Kalar, On, Carver! on, Quinby and Condon! To the top of the stairs! To the front of the hall! Now dash away! dash away! dash away, all!" So closer and closef the coursers they flew, With an' A for the boys, and for all the girls, too. When the students were starting to all turn around, In the doorway St. Nicholas came with a bound. He was dressed in Bermudas and had on knee sox, They knew right away that he was a real fox; A bundle of gifts he had flung on his back, With a smile and a chuckle, he opened his pack. He filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk, The students, with pleasure, surveyed St. Nick's work: For each teacher, a mythical Fix-hour day, For each student, economy-size A. Then St. Nicholas chuckled once more and to all Gave a nod. Then he jitterbugged into the hall. He sprang to his A, to his team gave a whistle. And away they all flew like the down of a thistk-. But I heard him exclaim, as he turned with a smile, "Sorry to have kept you from classes awhile.'
