Voters ALGONA COMMUNITY SCHOOL DISTRICT Before deciding to run for the Algona Community School Board, there were several questions I had to ask myself; and I am sure they are the same questions you would ask. I would like to discuss them here. 1. Am I qualified? I teei that I am, educationally, tempermentally, and because of my past community 'services and activities. A few of them are listed under my picture. 2. Why should a Catholic run? Why not? The Constitution says there shall be no religious test for public office; and I believe the qualifications that make a good school board member are the same regardless of the person's race, religion, sex, or national origin. In earlier years it was customary to have a Catholic as one of the School Board members. 3. Why am I interested in the public schools? First let's face one fact-the PUBLIC school is the school system of all the people, all races, all religious denominations-the school of the PUBLIC. In the past, in our area, Catholics have not should* ered their responsibility in this matter. True, they have paid their property taxes, but they have been hesitant to contribute of their individual talent and work. This situation NEEDS remedying. 4. Why don't my children attend the public school? The Constitution has given me the right to send my children to any qualified school. The decision to send my children to a parochial school, does not relieve rne of my OBLIGATION to see that this com- munify has the best possible public school system as well. 5. How do I stand on the bond issue? I feel that this community needs a new public high school and I will do all that I can to see that this comes about as quickly as possible. Certainly, my presence on the school board would enhance the possibility of the bond issue being passed. In the past, Catholics perhaps have not shown proper interest in the public schools. But we must face squarely the fact tha»-also-in the past it has sometimes appeared that there were efforts made to KEEP CATHOLICS out of our public school affairs. This situation has and is creating a detriment to the overall progress of our community. We must ALL-both Protestant and Catholic take a look at ourselves in the mirror of our conscience on this matter. We must cooperate. I may very well lose this election-but if our community can gain a better understanding of one another and a deeper appreciation of each others problems-then I will truly feel that WE-you and l-»he PUBLIC will be the winner. KEVIN NASH, D.D.S. QUALIFICATIONS — Born at Fort Dodge, Iowa, graduated Corpus Christi High.

I would ask first that all of you vote Sept. 12. A victory for any of the candidates via the apathy of the public, will be a shallow one. If you feel that I could do the most good for public education in this area, I would appreciate your vote. Sincerely, K. C.
