^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^BBB^^^M STEM JULIAN CHRISCHIUIS A i|^^MU| lljU&jtfJ^J ^^M fltt^^^fc I ffw*» HVHwl »• mj vUtw Three Algona college girls were pressed into service, not unwillingly, during the recent disastrous floods at Mankato . . .they ate Jane Cole, Pat Kenvon and Joyce Anderson, all students at Mankato State college. e, daughter of the Dale Coles and a sophomoro at at the college, heloed make sandwiches for the Red Cross at Mason temple there a week ago Thursday for several hours along with 20 other high school and colletje students. The girls worked with such speed that thov often had to wait for another load of bread from the bakery. were classes the next morning but more lielu was needed so Jane ioined a group of girls who volunteered to rill sand baps which were being used to build dikes They shoveled four loads of sand in each bag, which ended up weighing about 60 pounds. Later that morning she pot into a truck to help load sandbags. Most of the bags were burlap, *>*? y erc Paper-lined feed bags and some of the bags still had potato sprouts inside. For 90 minutes she helped on an assembly line to place sand bags on the dike. It was rough work for a girl especially when some of those in line were much taller men. "We got hit in the face with a heavy sandbag more than once," she reported. Jane continued work in back of the S & L store there, close to the main street bridge, until about 5 p.m. and then was all ready for a warm bath or shower. But when she returned to the dorm there was a sign reading, "No showers". The dike had broke at one spot and the city well was polluted with flood water. The entire city was asked to use no water except foil cooking. She also saw vice president Humphrey when he visited, the stricken city last Sunday. He complimented the students and said if it hadn't been for the aid of high school and college students, there wouldn't be a North Mankato. But Jane was just too stiff and sore to help with the cause on Saturday. Early on Sunday, students were dismissed for a week — as a water conservation measure. Pat Kenyon, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Les Kenyon, and a freshman there, worked three or four hours on Saturday at, the Red Cross center, issuing blankets and towels to evacuees and workers. She assigned them cots to sleep on and directed them to their beds. Miss Anderson, the daughter of the W. M. Andersons of Algona, spent five hours filling sand bags and loading them on trucks Friday night. During the hours between 4:30 p.m. and 2:30 a.m. Saturday, Joyce was at the Red Cross center in the Hiland Arena field house. Here she set up cots and took care of children and recorded the whereabouts of evacuees. This was one of three central calling centers. She is a sophomore at Mankato. So it seems Algona had representatives helping out in the Mankato crisis and they were female. .Others from Algona undoubtedly helped out also. ONE OF THE newest crazes in Des Moines is the "Scopitone", which could best be described as a juke box with a. jumbo TV screen on top . - j , at least two places have them in the capitol city and for a quarter (yikes, remember the Nickelodian) you get two or three minutes of music-plus • a colored movie of the participants. Most of the selections were filmed in France where the machines were sent from. Both the Ft, Des Moines and Savery Hotels have them and I'm sure others will follow suit. JIMMY MURTAGH, ex-Algonan, sends along a clipping from'.the''April 9 issue of the Tucson Daily Citizen with a column which included the following item about Bob King . . . since-he expressed a-desire to return to the Big Ten as a coach several years ago, it sounds true ... King you'll recall, coached,.basketball.,at Algona high school for six or seven years until 1956, then moved on to Rockford, 111. and later to .Iowa.. . . , • "On the subject of basketball today, it's interesting to note that the Albuquerque papers are probing the possibility of New Mexico Coach Bob King being interested in the Michigan State job which opened up recently with the firing of Fordy Anderson, '•'King-has Big Ten background as an assistant at Iowa and recruited two of New Mexico's biggest and best stars, Ira Harge and Mel Daniels, right in MSU's backyard at Detroit. "In three years at the Lobo helm, King has done a tremendous job. He's taken, the Lobos to the NIT twice (runnerup one year), tied for the WAC title once and won 58 game's while losing .pnly 23. "With four starters returning'from this season (Daniels at 6-9, BUI Morgan at 6-7, Ben Monroe at 6-3 and Dick Ellis at 6-3), King and New Mexico will be heavy favorites to win the conference crown next season." * # * WE NOTED the 63rd wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Newville in the Advance the other day . . . and now we find that Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Steven of Algona have been married 63% years* They were wed in September, 190J, just a few months before .the NewvUles, who celebrated their 63rd anniversary in February.
