Children from the rural sections need have no admission cards, and those from Algona must have slips from Paul Berger, playground direc- tor, showing that they have attended at least three of the playground sessions. The movie, N. C. Rice of the State theatre, says, will be a good western, with plenty of lively shorts. Manager Rice announced that the free movie would be John Wayne in "Lucky Texan" and that the Poultry Plant" and a carton shorts would include "Porky's Poultry Plant" and a cartoon feature, as well as a band act. Algona's Junior Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the Red Tag Days, and committees including John Haggard, Bob Harrington, Frank Baldwin, Evans Flnnell, Jim Murtagh, Lawrence Misbach, Mel Miner, Vic Steil and others have been working on details. With regard to the Red Tags the committee explained that they would be handled in this manner. On both Wednesday and Thursday, June 23rd and 24th, Red Tags will be thrown from second floor points of vantage up and down State street at the hours of 11 a. m., 1 p. m., and 3 p. m. The tickets or tags will each ten what the tag is good for In merchandise. Anyone Is welcome to be on hand and obtain his or her share of the tags. As a sample of how the Red Tags work, the Algona Upper Des Moines has 100 tags to be thrown away, each worth 25 cents on a want ad insertion In this newspaper. The ad and tag must be presented, however, on either Wednesday or Thursday, the Red Tag Days. For example, If you have one of the want ad tags, but do not care for a want ad, look around and trade your tags for those of some neighbor who has something you want, and he doesn't. All of the tags will be 25 cents In value, and there will be a grand total of 32,000 tags disposed of in the two days. Don't forget! FREE! MOVIES! FREE! RED TAGS!
