High Percentage Students Enjoy Athletic Activities Ihlptirs Physical education, athletics and health programs arc becoming increasingly popular in junior and senior high schools' »]\ over the United States, and, judging by the record at Algona high school, Die trend locally agrees with national figure*. The Algona high program includes more than 100 minutes per week of various physical education, athletics and health classes double the amount required by law. Only students with a medical excuse do not take part in the local program. Health's portion of the set-up includes special health and first ;iid classes and other courses, such as biology, science and homcmaking. The standard Red Cross first aid course is taught and certificates given to all students that complete it. Junior high pupils get. incidental health and personal hygiene instruction in physical education and science classes. Boys and girls each have physical education classes. Games taught and played include touch football. Softball, soccer, basketball, volleyball, badminton, archery, tennis, table tennis, trampoline, tumbling and wrestling for .the boys, and the same program, except touch football for the girls. The girls also take hockey. speedball, and square dancing, shuf fleboard, track and field events. Purposes behind the physical education program include re- eraation, physical development of all parts of the body, development of skill, promotion of good sportsmanship, interest in per-* sonal health and cleanliness and development of poise and coordination of all body'functions. Intramurals, games between classes or other groups within the school, are played outside of regular school hours. Fifty percent of al] senior-high girls participate in the intramural program, and usually play games Monday and Wednesday evenings. The GAA is another of the possibilities for girls. About 60 senior high girls participate in the activities offered to members of the Girls Athletic Association. Sports and recreation are the main objects of the GAA, and so far this school year members have participated in initiation, Hag Snag, Cedar Falls play day, candy sale, homecoming button sate and activity nights in the gym.

Track, Baseball Teams Work Out The baseball and track squads at Algona high school are working out daily, biding their time until real outdoor practice, can get underway. The thinclads are running in the streets around the school while waiting for the track to dry up, and the same holds true for Coach Bob King's baseballers, who have been bunting and throwing in the gym. With schedules in both sports set to get rolling in about ten days, sunshine will play an important part in readying the squads, which include a total of 51 men, for the season. •?.,..^v •'• •••-.,VJ%'». J Examining Of Sealed Grain, A.S.C. Advice With warmer weather ahead, it is advisable for farmers to do some careful checking of farm- stored grain which they have under price* support loans, it was stated this week by Virgil L. Rohlf, manager of the Kossuth county ASC. He said that a little effort now to examine stored grain for possible damage and contamination from rodents, birds, insects, heating and excess moisture may prevent losses from lowered quality. As a general thing, there is little loss during cold weather, he pointed out, but when the temperature climbs conditions became more favorable for damage. The producer who has a loan on farm-stored commodities has full responsibility for their quantity and quality. "A price-support loan is made on a specified amount and grade of corn, oats, soybeans or whatever commodity is involved," he declared. "It is a non-recourse loan only while the quantity and quality of the commodity are equal to or better than when the loan was made." If the farmer pays off his loan and sells tho grain he will get less for it if the grain is damaged or below loan quality. If the farmer delivers the grain to the government in satisfaction of the loan, the settlement will be based strictly on the quantity and quality at the time of delivery and any deficiency must be paid by the farmer. Any farmer who discovers trouble in his stored grain and does not know what to do to correct it should notify the county ASC office immediately and also ask advice either from the ASC office or the county Extension Service office. Prompt action is of greatest importance. Mayor Court Fines Six fines were levied in Mayor C. C. Shierk's court during the week. Leo H. Tofteberg, Bode, and Clyde M. King, Charles City, each paid $5 and costs for speeding; Robert D. Kitner, Fenton, and J. A. Smith, Sioux City paid $5 and costs each for going through stop signs; Reinhart A. Behnke. Algona, paid $5 and costs for a stop light violation; and Leo A. McCarthy, Algona, was fined ^5 and costs for failing to have his car under control. The fine was suspended. The panther, puma, cougar and mountain lion are one and the same animal.
