Ravings CO BCEBE A LW1» ei Thll, • L1HU of That) Mot Much oi Anything. That Dime. The "March of Dimes" is on the way, lei's not pass up another day to get in step with neighbor, friend, and do our part and so extend a willing and a helping hand to polio stricken in our land. And what's a dime? I'm asking you. 'Twill buy a beer, v oh yes, that's true, and also pay for half a pack, but not enough to buy a snack. A dime or two won't take you far, nor peck of dimes would buy a car, a dime is ne'er a lucky piece, but used for innocents to fleece. HowevSr, now a cause is found in which the dime becomes profound, and so a march is on the way by which the dime is put in play. The purpose is to march at length in ever- growing daily strength. to battle polio (not in vain) and brins to victims health again. With canes or crutches thrown away, a victory march of dimes I'd say. So dig in pocket or your purse for dime to help fight polio curse, take step in "March of Dimes" today, let's help get polio out of way. — o — T. J.

A petition has been circulated r.nd now has the necesrary number of signers to bring about a special election to determine if the community wishes to vote en a bond issue to finance the project. A special school election on the matter is likely in the -near future. No definite plans regarding construction, details are available at this time, but fundamentally the idea is to provide a new addition to the gym making it standard size with a seating capacity to handle sports crowds. /The lower half of the old gym could be converted into a lunchroom to benefit the more than 200 pupils who now take advantage of the hot lunch program.

And a junior gulper club being started in Emmetsburg with a committee of Pat Wiggins, Rosella Brady, Marie Duda, Emma Brennan, Iva Warmke and Alice Coburn taking on a membership drive. The tJirJs feel that the young can also gulp coffee as efficiently as their elders and so should organize to promote Java gulping. I was called to the telephone one day last week and a gentleman told me that he was a Swede and that there were as many Swedes in Kossuth as there were Danes and he thought I should give some publicity to the Swedish named folks in the county, and which I shall be glad to do in the near future, fie wouldn't give me his name but he wanted me to know that the Swedes were as competent gulpers as the Danes, in fact he hoped that a contest could be put on some time in Algona, Svenske vs. Danske, so to speak. And he s got something there. Den Danske Pioneer, a paper published in the Danish language at Omaha weekly, and having a country wide Scandinavian circulation, contained a column length story recently about our Danish townsman, C«rl W. Morck. And the paper also gives Algona nice recognition, says we're about 8.00U strong, but not all Danes, however. Mentions Mads Christiansen and Alex Nielsen as being Danes, too. But there you are, Algona gets publicity through a Danish paper with nation-wide circulation, so to speak.
