Coronation ceremonies were part of the annual freshman dance at the Minnesota Union held hut tree*. She was selected after the field of co-eds had been narrowed down to six girl*. About Town Says What is a baluU.T?. If yon don't know there is a little way to find out. Few knows know. Wonder how Bernice Harrington became acquainted with the word. She made out a list Including the above for a young ladles scavenger hunt The ladies, such as "Alice Payne Mrs. Don Smith. Lorraine Arndorfer and others, who' help 'guide the business and social side of the town didn't believe there' wa* such a word. In fact, some Of them were ready to accuse Bernlc* of slipping dh'e* over. She certainly did—for the time being. .At last, if faith can be found In your wardsman, the streets are to be re-arranged in some respect* and signs on every corner bearing name and number. The new plan calls for streets running east and west to be left as they are. Those north and south will be classified as numbers. First street will be found somewhere near the river west of town. Count one for every block and Seventeenth street will take the place of Phillips, the one running and whether or not they realize It nothing one can do will draw more people to the fall extravaganza next year. And here is one for Rtpley. Two of the women whose names appear on the protest acted as superintendents of departments of the fair two or three years ago. At that time they asked one of the board directors for free passes to the girl shows. Which further proves a line from last week—The best community folks attend these shows. They are educational and entertaining, why do away with them ? * * * If Dutch Reagan cofltd find out how the Algona people and nearby folks stood in line to see his picture at the Call theatre Sunday night he could feel a debt had been paid. It was Dutch, who, a year ago, not this, broadcasted many a time a story over WHO of Des Moines about the greatest ball team In the state, the Algona Grays. Can we add? It was a year ago, not this year ,the Sporting News of St. Louis, the official baseball paper of the world, carried stories about the great Algona Grays. It was a year ago, not this year, the big daily papers from the Twin Cities and throughout the middle west printed anent the Grays. It was a year ago, not this year, numerous big league scouts had their eyes on Algona players and their ability. Like thr three little pigs' homes, a puff and jlmmto Mnrtogh did Ms part at the late field day celebration near Bancroft It was Jimmie who kept the thousands from suffering With thirst. He worked In ft pop stand. He sold hundrtd* of bottles. He kept two hands working. One of them took a warm bottle out of th« case and put It In Ice water. The other hand reached dtfwn, grabbed the botUe and passed It out to an accomplice whose sole duty was to pull corks. There was no time to cool pop. The trade was too great Jimmy met the occasion and won. Folks still hear ringing In their ears, Jimmie's ballyhoo, "It must be cold."
