Winter Vocal Concert At AHS Dec. 14 "0 Come, Emmanuel" will be the title of the Christmas music concert presented by the vocal music department of the Algona Community School Wednesday, Dec. 14, at 8 p. m. in the high school auditorium. The program, which is always a favorite of the people in Algona at Christmas time, will create for the public some new and different arrangements and ideas about the season of Christmas through the sounds of music. One of the special highlights of the program will feature the mixed chorus performing "And The Glory Of The Lord' and the "Hallelujah" chorus from Handel's "The Messiah." This year, Steve R. George, director of vocal activities at the Junior and senior high schools, is doing quite a few works that use the 80-voice mixed chorus, combined with the 140- voice 7th and 8th grade mixed chorus. Other music groups that will be presented in the program will be the lyric girls chorus, band girls chorus, Symphonettes, modern choir and a brass group under the direction of William Castle from the instrumental department Harold Nelson, I Ex-Area Man, Died Dec. 7 Military services for Harold John Nelson, 52, well-known in the Algona and Bancroft areas, will be held this Thursday, Dec. 15, at 2 p.m. in the McCullough Funeral Chapel here, with Rev.

Grant School Auction Sale Grant Consolidated School furnishings were scattered after a sale Tuesday of several hundreds of items. There were 310 sales — some including more than one item that brought a total of $1,340. Auctioneer was Clair Clark of Ledyard and Ceylon. One of the highest priced items was an antique clock that sold for $61 and went to O. W. Blotn- ster of Swea City. W. L. (Buzz) Reynolds, a Grant High School graduate and former member of the school board, bought the old school bell for $51. St. Paul's Lutheran School at Fairmont' bought the stage curtains and a few other items for $50. L. C. Gardner, Swea City teacher and a former superintendent of the Grant School, paid $26 for the piano. Proceeds from the sale will be divided between two school districts. Two thirds will go to the Swea City School district, inasmuch as two thirds of the old Grant Consolidated school area merged with Swea City, and one third will go to the Grant Independent School district, which is still operating until its disposition is decided by the court.
