The writer of this letter is a former Advance printer who left Iowa for the Coast two years ago. By Frank J. Miller. Seattle, Jan. 10—I imagine you'l! be somewhat surprised to hear from me, but I had been getting the Advance regularly, a courtesy I enjoyed immensely, and so had been taking its coming as a matter of course. But now, not having seen the paper for three weeks, it behooves me to write and let you know I'm still alive and that you haven't been sending it to a corpse or a "dead" address. I suppose that Algona has been struck somewhat by the so-called national depression, but you couldn't prove it by the amount of advertising the Advance has been carrying. That, of course, is a compliment for yeur Mr. Finnell (ahem! Ike, I meant to say). Allow me to congratulate you on having such a versatile man in your employ. Like whiskey he cannot help improving with age. Times Hard for Printers. I am stil] in the employ of the Outlook Printing Co., and am stick- j ing rather close, for jobs are as I scarce as hen's teeth. The company | had been paying only 70 per cent wages for months, but increased to j SO per cent last week, and soon will [ be back on full pay (I hope!). The company now owes us some $125 apiece. I speak in the plural, for there are five others in my boat. And now, how are Isaac, Eva, Tony, and Rudolph—and. of course, Duane and yourself? I suppose everyone is working and happy. * "\Yasliinirfon Is "fliarmed Land."

Adjournment was taken to- allow time for a state' audit of the books, which is later than usual this year. G. \V. .stilimain was chosen to the board of directors to succeed the late Mrs. S. G'. Barry, and M. P.. Weaver and H. R. Cowan 1 were reelected at the meeting last week Tuesday. No organization meeting for the board has Iseen held', aind will Elmer Zielske, bass j pro bably not be held till after the adjourned" meeting. The association is flourishing, and routings increased from SSI.000 to $1'OB,805.1S during 1930. A. L. Peterson is president, and A. L. Cunningham secretary. the boys will play will be given before Ledyad takes pride in the choice of its representatives, the competition for places being keen. The best from each school was picked for a illO-piece band by a committee of musical directors chosen by the schools represented. A similar plan was carried out lar.t year at Fort Dodge, and it is to be a yearly event at the district teacher's' convention hereafter. The band will be under the direc- the million, or even an inkling of j tlon of Gerald Prescott, director of ' - ~ the Mason City high school band. Each school director will be-responsible for preparing the representa- •tives from his school. Mr. Prescont has chosen several -school music men to take charge of sectional rehearsals,, and V. A.

Seattle has been lacking in national advertising, but at a recent all-city meeting at the Chamber of Commerce a "Committee of 59" was appointed to "sell" Seattle and its environs. Other Algonlans at Seattle. Charles Steil is working at Port- Jand now, and te planning on acquiring a car for a pilgrimage back home next summer. If I can scrape up enough lucre I shall possibly come too. His brother William is employed at a bakery here and is making dough in more ways than one. Sidney Clark Is manager of a clothing store at Bremerton (navy yards town). Walt Beerman Is a baker down on Washington street. Herbert French is still with the Krauss Bros, lumber company, with offices in the White- Stuart-Henry building. There are possibly other former Algonians here whom 1 don't know or can't think of just now. Give my regards to everyone, and tell the pressman to strike off an extra copy for me. Frank S. Jenks and Katie Murphy * I were married at Carson City, Nev. Life held forth a bright outlook for | this black-haired, black-eyed young | couple. During their 57 years of | married life they have journeyed j hand in hand, taking uncomplainingly the sorrows and disappoint- have charge of a sectional rehear- ;sal of the alto and bass clarinets. Special rehearse! will be held at 9 o'clock on the morning- preceding the concert. This- band" has proven, an incentive to students of music in the schools-, for it gives them an opportunity to study come of the best arrangements of classical band music. It als 0 gives an opportunity for special training under some of the most successful band men of the state. LEDYARD COUPLE WED SHEARS AGO Fifty-seven years ago on December 31, says the Bancroft Register, LAKE FREEZES SOLID AND FISH ARE KILLED Fish in Elk lake, southwest of Ruthven. may freeze to death this winter. The water in the lake was depleted during the drought last summer, anil fall rains failed to fill it beyond freezing depth. Water in deep lakes rarely freezes more than a foot or so, because of the peculiar failure of water to circulate after its temperature is 39 degrees above zero. When a lake begins to freeze in winter it is warm. Gradually the air chills the upper layer of water till it becomes cooler than thdt at the bottom. Then the cold water sinks, letting warmer water come to the surface, where it is in turn cooled, and the process is repeated. This occurs till the entire body of water i s at 30 degrees, whereupon the water on top begins to freeze. Water at the bottom no longer comes up, so only the upper level is frozen. Thus fish live all winter in deep lakes where the temperature is 39 degrees though the top of the lake is covered by a thick coating of ice. ments along with the joys and pleas- urea, ever buoyed up by a love that has never faltered but has grown more a pa.ssed. After a residence of two years in Nevada and California, where Mr. Jenks was a miner, they moved to Iowa in 1875, settling in the vicinity of Des Moines, where they farmed until 1SS2, when they moved to a farm near Algona. They resided there till 1SS7, thence moving to the site of Ledyard before the town was in existence. Mr. Jenks joined the Dunlap Bros, haying force, in which he was employed for a few years. Mr. and Mrs. Jenks then operated the first hotel in Ledyard and continued in the hotel business till 1900, when they lost hotel, livery barn, and all personal property. Till four years ago Mr. Jenks operated the Ledyard telephone exchange. He always took an active part in Kossuth politics, and served morrow following noon luncK-. served by the Dozen Methodist Aid: Glenr Hogan, southwest of Hbbartbir, announces a sale for- meet' Wddhes- day.

Sloel OJrtlers In Place. Last week,' before work was stopped, most of the heavy steel girders that hold up the roof over the gymnasium and the auditorium had been put up, but- not permanently attached. The girders were,, however, permanently fastened later by workmen hired by the board, so no damage will be dohe should a high wind arise. Little In the way of completion of work anywhere on the building Has been done. The heavy main part has progressed, and the walls are up on all sides to the top of the second story windows. Huge reinforced concrete pillars bearing the | second story floors have been put. in. The second story concrete floor has been poured; and 'the heating equipment Is In place In the basement under the north end of the building. Most of the work In constructing the building is, however, yet to be done. Work on the Interior always requires more time and labor than that on the outside walls. All this finishing work remains to be done. The building Is arranged In the form of an oblong, -which takes^up nearly the entire block of grotind on which it is located. The hallways form a huge letter 'H'. In -th* southern open space Is the gymnasium, and In the north end Is the auditorium. Around the outside are arranged the classrooms. The auditorium and gymnasium are two stories in heighth. PAVING NORTH OF ELMORE DISCUSSED ^ Grading of Minnesota highway No. 5 to the state line at Elmore was discussed at a recent meeting called by the Blue Earth community club at which were present delegates from Blue Earth, Elmore, Winnetago, Amboy, and Vernon Center, says the Swea City Herald. C. M. Babcock, Minnesota highway co-n-rmlssioneTV will be asked to do the grading next year when work between BTue Earth and Amboy will lie done. Then, it is expected, the highway will be pared in 1933. No. 5 is now a part of federal road Not 169' from- Kansas City to the Canadian line.. No. 169 forms a junction witli No. 9 at the golf course corner- four and a half miles east of Swea City. Minnesota No. 5 loomed largely in the- discussion last winter over the paving" of road No. 9 from Swea City to Lakata:. Bancroft citizens led a movement to have the paving extended' on road' No 1 .. 169 from the golf course corner to Elmore instead of improving No. 9. At thaitt time- towns- from Mankato to> Port Etodg-a> WBT«- petitioning both Minnesota and" Iowa road authorities to pave Noi IG9\. then No. 16 In Towa and" No. o in Minnesota, and claims- were made that the improvement "was coming-at once. But the- road authorities of both states demurred' to- tire- proposal since it was not a part of the- original road improvement program of either state-.

For Algonians of middle age or better chief interest in the paper lies in the fact that one O f the early editors wa-s Bill Nye, one of America's best known humorists i n the 70's. It was Nye who established the Boomerang, later consolidated with the Republican. Nye left Laramie In 1883. Disappointingly, the Republt- as supervisor in 1900. He is a life- iong republican. Mr. and Mrs. Jenks are enjoying fairly good health, considering their years. Mr. Jenks will be SO on the llth of April, and Mrs. Jenks passed her 7iith milestone December 31. OPERATION PERFORMED ON L, R, FARMER'S DAUGHTER Lone Rock, Jan. 13 — The George Hannas received a telegram from the Memorial Hospital, New York City, Monday afternoon saying tha-t the daughter Pearl, of the high school faculty at Mt.

Stacy, of the Rural Organization department o£ the Ames Extension Service, was in the county la.st Thursday and Friday to help township leaders plan programs for meetings during the coming year. Last week Wednesday afternoon the county Farm Bureau program committee—F. L. Ryerson, Burt; Harry Bode, Mrs. James Black, and Mrs. A. B. Schenck, Algona — prepared a ILst of suggested topics for talks at township meetings and probable speakers who may be obtained. Talks are Included on livestock, soils, poultry, home beautification, juilding, .county history, geology of county, astronomy, and conservation, as well as on farm and home management practices. All are to be given by local people where vocation or hobby has given them opportunity to acquire information. Township programs, as planned at meetings with Mr. Stacy, include, in addition to the talks mentioned, playlets, home management demonstrations, 4-H club programs, school programs, discussion of farm subjects, and special features such as a January ] January 2 January 3 January 4 January 5 January 6 January 7 January January January January January January 13 January 114 High ..37 ..46 ..37 ..33 ..30 ..30 ..32 ..35 ..41 ..35 ..38 ..30 ...20 Low LIT 2-5 2'3 PROGRESSIVES TAKE .CONTROL OF ASSEMBLY (Continued from page one.)

Today (Tuesday) Governor Hnmmlll colnes before the joint assembly' to sing his swa.n song, which, in this writer's opinion, will amount to little more than a new bid for popular favor. The governor's blennlnl message Is supposed *o be a statement of the Condition of the affairs of the commonwealth. To some of us, It will this time be a revelation. We had not known' before that Iowa was In such a prosperous, progressive condition, , though we have known, of course, that some people of Iowa were getting along fairly well. After today interest will turn largely to the inauguration of Dan W. Turner, who, promises to he a governor of the people of Iowa, not governor of any particular porllon alone. • Legislature Bucks Turner. Dan W. Turner goes' Into office with a strong organization, in the General Assembly, a condition which follows in natural course the 'great majority he rolled up In both the .primary and the general election. His faction, if It must be called that, Is the controlling faction, so far as we are able to judge now, and If any monkey wrenches are thrown Into his program a spectre of the past will have to appear. For the first time In 'history lowans outside of DCS Moines will be able to hear the Inauguration of a governor this week" Thursday. Governor Turner will take the oath of office before a microphone,and his Inaugural address will be broadcast by WHO and WOC at 1:45 p. m. . At the request 'of the Central roadcasting company, which oper- tes these stations, wire facilities ave been provided 'for both this and :her state house broadcasts. The ompany plans to put Senate and buse debates on important issues i the air from time to time during he present session.
