They have gone from a "typical" status to more professional, independent, better trained and more demanding (and rightly so). The present faculty has reached a total of 120, including all of those under the supervision of the Algona Community School program, whether full or part-time, and special education instructors. The all school student enrollment is now 1870. The qualities of the curriculum itself have broadened considerably, with an increase of from between 20 to 25 units in 1933 to 59 units of study for the current year. A unit consists of a course pursued for two semesters, with the greatest increase coming on the high school level. College entrance requirements have been a deciding factor in the increase, but the greatest change has come in the vocational courses during the past 15 to 20 years. The addition of Distributive Education, Office Education, Vocational Agriculture and all phases of Industrial Occupation.

AND THE STUDENT, how has he fared with the span of time? Where corporal punishment was the mode for discipline in the earlier years, we have, for the majority, become a permissive society. The young have many problems but most seem better able to meet them. Physical hazards have reached an all- time high and their concerns are deep. These are crucial, critical times in the welfare of our young people . . . physically, morally and spiritually. We have made them more knowledgeable, consequently, better equipped to ask questions and want the answers. People should be more worried about the future for youth and education. We should each ask ourselves, "What is the best thing I can do to make the best possible education for the children now and all future children?" Yes, these are the concerns of a long-time educator, one who had intended to be a lawyer, not a teacher - but after two years of association with youth, found them and their welfare "in his blood" and the challenge too intense to ignore. MR. AND MRS. Laing are natives of Corydon, Iowa. They were married when he was at Thornburg and she was teaching at Ankeny. The parents of two sons, they now have seven grandchildren. Their son Ed is a lawyer at Ventura, California and Dave is in the construction business in the Hawaiian Islands. Mr. Laing has a hobby of Geology and being a former history teacher, he prides himself on being a bit of a history "buff. They have taken many trips visiting numerous historical sites throughout the country. Future plans are as yet indefinite, but spending some time with the children in California is at the top of the list.
