The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, May 6,1937 Ernest E. Condon, Dist. Commander, Sends Greetings I am very happy to return to Algona for the District Convention. I have visited you many times and the friendly courtesies you people extend to visitors always make me feel I am welcome back. Hagg Post has given much to the American Legion, and it has carried out our programs and objectives. It has also given to the State Department that outstanding Lcgionaire and gentleman, "Skin" Laird, who, by his untiring efforts, has been one of the main cogs in the machinery, that has made this Legion of ours in Iowa the greatest Legion department in the country. This district is proud of Algona and is proud of the things it has acomplished for its community. I want to extend to its people and Legionaires greetings and best wishes and may good fortune always smile upon you. ' Frank Miles, Editor, Extends Greetings It is always a real pleasure for me to attend an Eighth District joint conference of The American Legion and Auxiliary of the Department of Iowa, for there are no more loyal Americans and better folks. The Eighth District has given much to our great organization in membership, inspiration and activities. Moreover, let it never be forgotten that the Eighth is the home of James K "Jim" Barton and R. J. "Skin" Laird. I shall be glad to return to Algona because I know something of its spirit, I have many friends in its population and it is the dug-out of our Department Adjutant with whom I have worked so many years. I am glad, too, that Algona has adopted Oliver Reiley, than whom there is none whomer, as a Legionaire. In the sixteen years I have been in my present position, I have enjoyed every Legion meeting more than any one before. I know I shall get new thrills at the Eighth District conference at Algona on May 11. Welcome 8th District American Legion & Auxiliary You'll Like Algona Iowa State Bank Ralph Miller, Pres. Harold Gilmore, Cashier Roy McMahon, Asst. Cashier OLIVER S. REILEY Oliver S. Reiley, Algona, is Ajutant of Hagg Post No. 90. He served as Post Commander in Red Oak in 1931, as Montgomery County Commander in 1931. as Seventh District Commander in 1930. and as Department Vice Commander in 1932. He is also Secretary of the Algona Chamber of Comerce and Secretary of the Kossuth County Safety Council. Greetings From R. J. Laird, State Legion Adjutant I am looking forward with a great deal of pleasure to returning to Algona for the Eighth District conference of the American Legion and its Auxiliary on May 11. Algona has been rightly called "The Friendly City" for a number of years, and I know that those who are lucky enough to be able to attend the conference will find that this is still true. Hagg Post and its Auxiliary have always been outstanding in the service that they have rendered, not only to the disabled and the widows and the orphans, but in cooperation with other organizations, and the citizens at large, in making Algona the best town in Iowa. With kindest personal regards to you all. Wore Prince Alberts In the "nitty nineties." most United Stntes senators wore Prince Alberts. The frock cent was a symbol of statesmanship and a board was the mark of a man of maturity and substance. *eo8»mett3caeas»SMM»s»c83JMX8SC8M^ SAVE THE BOTTLE CAPS & LABELS Valuable Prizes Given Away FREE Anyone can enter this contest, all you need to do is to save the Pepsi Cola bottle caps and labels.
