The margins were smaller, however, than in 1936. Complete tables of the county election results are shown elsewhere in the paper today. The vote cast for Gillette for U. S. senator was 2,075 greater than that for L. J. Dickinson, republican, of Algona. Kossuth's majority for ' Gillette, was alone almost the deciding factor In the race which was the closest in years. All incumbent supervisors were elected in the county, and all county officers were reelected. * * * MBS. W. E.

OF OUR RECORD $613.50 Worth of Space Donated Annually to Local Causes The facts set forth in thia advertisement were gathered by this newspaper at the suggestion of the Iowa Press Association, which has sponsored "Newspaper Recognition Week." The figures obtained were so illuminating, even to us, that we are glad to give them to the public. Figured at our advertising rates, the volume of publicity represented a space-rate money value of more than $613 or (SO per month. In other words, had the churches of this city, the public schools, patriotic organizations, lodges and other organizations been obliged actually to purchase the space desired by them for promotional purposes, the total charges on the ledgers of The Algona Upper Des Moines would have exceeded $613.50 for the year 1937. Paper* Measured Accurately Here is how we arrived at the above facts. We selected the past four months of the year which we felt would be average months as regards news and advertising, and then estimated that these months, in all fairness, could be used as average months. We then computed the paper's civic promotion publicity for the year on the basis of the months actually measured with painstaking accuracy.

HEBE ARE A FEW FACTS Churches Rank Flr»t: The churches of Algona and Kossuth county including Sabbath schools and Endeavor , societies auxiliaries, etc., received the most generous portion of promotional publicity. And that Is as it should be. We are glad that, with no studied effort to favor one community influence above others, it so happens that the churches occupy first place In our columns. Public Schoota Sank Second: Schools rank second to the churches, with a grand total of |96.30 worth of publicity. Of course, It will not be news to our public that the school systems have had parental care of the Upper Des Moines. Farm New* Volume Ranks Third: The volume of farm news cooperation ranks third. That means that in addition to the general run of news—local and state—this is of especial interest to the farming population, the Algona Upper Des Moines printed column after column of data and other Informative material—a "plus-service" to our farn\ readers. We are proud of this record of service. We are aware that the opportunities of a newspaper for community improvement are exceptional. To the extent that a newspaper accepts such responsibility will it be able to contribute its full share of public service. The Algona Upper Des
