2-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moinec Tuesday, Jan. 17, 1967 ACTION AT A.H.S Congratulations to the wrestlers on a great effort against the Eagle Grove Eagles last Wednesday. It was a big meet for both teams and the 19-19 final score shows you that it was really a top-notch contest. Clint Young maintained his undefeated string, and Max Miller avenged his earlier loss to the Eagle wrestler in two of the better matches. - o- ••.•e D.E.C.A. Book Fair proved to be a real winner. Mr. Ullom tells us that about $420 worth of books were purchased. That's a lot of books. The paperbacks were first displayed with sample copies a few weeks ago and then arrived for the students last Monday. A couple of books that seemed to sweep the sales were "The Blackboard Jungle" and "Dracula." -fl- it seems that the juniors are pretty well off as far as money goes. They don't even have to operate the concession stand at the athletic events anymore. They must plan on a very special Prom .... very expensive, too. No word yet on this year's theme for the Prom, but it should be out BY ESTEBAN and around shortly. The Class of '67 wishes the juniors the best of luck. - o - Booklovers are really havin' a big time it seems. Mrs. Kelley's English literature classes have at their disposal a collection of paperbacks in the newly-developed library. A table has been set aside and pupils having second-hand books contribute so that others may enjoy the volumes. - o- The A. H. S. student council consented to have a soc hop after the wrestling meet with Iowa Falls last Saturday. It appeared that everybody made it past the Friday the 13th hex safely, but the maddening fact that semester tests were right around the corner WAS bothering most scholars. Oh, the pain! - o - If you want dancing lessons we know two excellent instructors. They are probably too busy to take time out for a private session, but if you go to the soc hops or a dance somewhere look for Bill Boldridge and Chris REPORT Of CONDITION OF "IOWA STATE BANK" of Algona.

There's Solder's "Motown Moves" commonly called the "Blitz" aad there's Christo's "New Orleans Fry". - o- The hunt is on. We need a host family for next year's foreign exchange student, it was announced last week. The A.F.S. sponsor at the high school is Mr. Andersen. We know there are plenty of eager families hoping for a visitor, and this is a great program -11 the way around. - o - Most high school boys' gym classes were subjected to physical fitness tests last week. Instructor Howie Stephenson id- ministered the ordeal. Rumor has it that Chris Conn is champion push-upper. Was it 61 in two minutes ? - o - Courses still open for students in the second semester include general business, computer math, business theory, and a third quarter (senior boys only) home economics course. Mrs. Nettleton should be contacted if you're interested, guys. The name of the class is to be "Man of the House." It was also offered last year and taken by several seniors. - o- Mr. Langman's fourth period freshman English class could hardly believe its eyes last week when Gerry Whittemore and Mark Olson karate-chopped boards and bricks in two. We understand they were given a tremendous ovation. It must have been terribly difficult to saw the board down to the right level for an easy break and glue the brick after cracking it down the middle. At any rate, it was clever. - o - Seniors have finally been cornered and consulted about their future. Mr. Andersen, one of the guidance counselors, arranged a scheduled time for each of his 49 seniors with a fifteen- minute conference alloted per pupil. Miss Sorensen has been on the go since the beginning of the school year in aiding undecided upper classmen. Now they can relax (?) for a week during semester tests. - o- We just have to report this: A record was 'set last week in intramural play. The boys' basketball team, the Warriors, started off their game with only two memliers present and rolled to an 82 to 37 victory, ending up with only four of the six showing up. The win was managed without the services of Harlie Brown (who was ill that day) and Merlyn "the magnificent" Melzger, one of the team's hot-handed playmakers. - o- One A. H. S. instructor seem?. to find our humorous jokes a little nauseating and since he teaches history we'll close with this historic piece of information: Calvin Coolidge probably did less talking than any other President of the United States. A Washington hostess once boasted 'she could make President Coolidge talk. One night at a dinner party she tried to make her boast good. "Oh, Mr. President," she said, "I have just made a bet that I can make you say at least three words.' And Mr. Coolidge replied, "You lose." How's that, oh great bearded one? COON Keith Purviance and Carman Hanson killed 114 coon in 31 nights of hunting in the Decorah area. At least 10 of the coon weighed more than 35 pounds. The men say they have been hunting for 21 years, and have never seen coon so plentiful. They killed four in one tree. NING UUIDE Eat Out Often In ALGONA THE JOHNSON HOUSE ON SO.
