PAGE TWELVE 16 STUDENTS EXCUSED FROM FINAL EXAMS last week was the most drended week of the year for most pupils— the week of semester tests. There were more pupils who Vuul to tiike the tests and more criticisms and demerits given than usual. Miss Coate says ' it was continuous whispering which caused most of the demerits and criticisms.

Ga-skill, Ruth Robinson, Virginia Schnepf, Ella Zumach. Eleventh grade— Ardeen Uevlne, Carmilla Fnizer, Josephine Lee, Phyllis Parsons. Twelfth grade— Alva Benson, Genevieve Hartshorn, Hazel Neeling. Band-Orchestra In Program- Under the direction of Mr. Johnson, band and orchestra director, high school and grade pupils have been working long and faithfully at manipulating their Instruments. On the evening of January 2S the organizations will give their first program at -the high school assembly room. The preliminary work of mastering any instrument Is drudgery Which causes many pupils to become discouraged and quit; but prospects are good, and we now have every reason to believe that the pupils will giv e a splendid account of their work. This is the first band in our high school. Mr. Johnson, in organizing his orchestra, ihad to start practically with beginners. In connection with a North Central teachers' meeting at Mason City in March, a band consisting of pupils from many high schools will play. Four pupils— Charles Cretzmeyer, Donald Parsons, WIHard Zeigler, and Bill Kain —have been selected from the local high school to be members of this band. On Friday evening during the convention the band will give a concert in the auditorium of the Mason City high school.

Meyers, president of the Pioneer Service Co., Iowa City collection and credit agency, spoke Friday evening at the courtroom, which' was filled with business men from all over the county. His (subject wns "Deadheats We Have Known." Mr. Meyers gave a resume of the kinds of deadbeats who are, met In the ordinary course of business. One of the methods commonly used by dcadbeats involves preying ,on town •oj'nity, and rivalry between merchants in the same line of business. An Instance continually arising is the man who drives ten or IB miles to a town, enters a store and bawls out merchants in other towns as robbers, cutthroats, etc., at the same time praising the low prices'of the merchants of the town he hae selected for his operations. Too often his victims are glad to hear digs at competing towns and so are bunk- oed Into giving credit to their subsequent sorrow. This .same thing Is. done within town limits by telling business men stories about competitors. , Each merchant is afraid another will extend credit and thus secure business, so he feels that he must also extend credit. Thus each suffers Hnst Know 20 Subjpcls— Extemporaneous work was started two weeks ago under the direction of Miss Plaehn. This type of Ispeaking was introduced high school two years ago. in the Twenty subjects have been chosen on current events. Participants must read material on each subject, and at try outs must be prepared to speak on any of the subjects. The competition Is can-led on in the same way as declamatory work. Many students are Interested in this work. Girls Basketball Is Started— Girls' basketball was started the Monday after vacation, and prac- tce Is held every Monday and Friday evening. There has been a good attendance by both participants and spectators. A'few minutes Is taken up before playing to explain fundamentals of the game. Miss Stubbs is a capable coach, and many girls have expressed appreciation of her advice relating to the treatment of stiff and sore muscles. Froshnn'ii Swamp Noon Sqnart— The freshmen basket bailers beat the noon squad in a rather one- sided game Tuesday, January 13, 18-1.

The Thorntons were taken to Iowa City last week Tuesday and Mr. Thornton was in holies of saving an eye, which had been -Injured in an accident. The eye, how ever, was removed. Towns should not scrap each other in thte way for all concerned are losers, the prey of Merchants In all towns deadbeats. are much Debaters Have Experience— A few days before vacation two debate teams from Humboldt clash ed with two teams from Algona The Algona negatives were Florence Dehnert and Fernley Nolle; the Algona affirmatives, James Bishop and Eleanor Keen. The teams wero evenly matched, and both used good headwork. No decision was given, as it was simply a practice tilt. Allen King Home Again— Allen King, who went to-the university hospital at Iowa City a week ago Saturday, Is now reported better, and Mrs. King has .returned, home. Mr. King is suffering from heart disease and dropsy, .and for several days after his arrival in Iowa City was tion. in a critical condl- alike; none are cutthroats or robbers in a business way. Whenever a business man shuts down on credit to a deadbeat he is immediately the object of abuse, but such abuse to another merchant should sound like anything but sweet music, for It means that his competition is alive to deadbeats and credit leaks and it is up to him to follow suit or be eliminated from the game. Mr. Meyers told his hearers beware of extending credit to men simply because they have steady jobs. This statement seeme at first sight a mistake, for the average merchant feels that .-a man with a steady job Is his -best risk. But a man with a steady job, paying a steady income, Mr. Meyers said, is not always a good credit risk, and gave an illustration. He was called to a certain town to collect a bill. The merchant said that inasmuch as the man who owed it had a steady job and was a good workman he could not understand why the bill had i not been paid. Mr. Meyers had a hunch, and he rent from store to store asking for bills against the man in question. He found that this fellow owed a total of $450 in unpaid accounts. He investigated further and found that the debtor was getting $135 a month, and it cost him $00 a month to support his family. In reply to a question concerning disposition of the remaining money the man admitted that he had bought a car on which he was paying $35 a month. He was then asked what he did with the other $10, but by that time he was angry, and would only say that he spent it for gas. This man thought he owed only ar.pund $150, and was surprised to find that he owed $450, though he admitted that every bill was correct. Ordinarily he was a good credit risk, but if any one merchant had pressed his- account in court there would have been a general rush to collect, and the debtor would have been driven to take bankruptcy. Following Mr. Meyer's talk the owd was entertained at the Call theater, where "The Criminal Code" was shown. Men in attendance at the meeting who registered from out-of-town were: Bancroft—L. F. Kennedy, J. H. MenJce, A. H. Fnehs, Paul Gromes, P. A. Lonergan, A. W. Kennedy, E. J. Seeney. Burt—Clifford Lovstad, C. B. Chfpman, W. T. Trainer, E. A. Hansen. Fenton—J, F. Newel, Frank Balley, F.

TWO MORE SHORT HIGHWAYS ADDED TO PRIMARY SYSTEM The road south from Lu Verne to Llvermore and thence 1 west ten mr.es to Bode is to become a primary highway in the near 'future, according to a recent announcement by the -state highway commission. The commission has adopted a program that gives each town of 200 or more population a primary road. ' The Rlngsted-Armstrong road has been added to the : state primary road system by the highway commission. This action follows the. policy of connecting all' towns In the state by prmlary roads. MINNESOTA TO GRADE NO, 5 NEXT SUMMER Charles M. Babcock, road commissioner In Minnesota, has agreed to grade No. 5 from Blue Earth to the Iowa line at Elmore this year, This means that in the near future this road in... Minnesota, which connects With 169 in Iowa, will be paved. The Iowa highway commission Is on record as having said that when this Is done, Iowa will meet the Mlnneso- tane at the state line. The Elmore Eye last week gave the following review of the long fight to get the road In the Minnesota improvement program: "In his letter Commissioner Babcock advised that bids for grading of the section of road from Blue Earth to the Iowa line, a distance of 10.5 miles, would be received at an early date, and the project completed during the coming summer. "Agitation for permanent Improvement of No. 5 to the Iowa line, In view of the possibility of later paving that road and designating it as a federal highway, was launched by towns along this road NEW SOI A .YWEDS AT TH CRESGO IE HONORED several years. ago. "In 1928 No. 5 was graded along wfth highway No. 16 to the junction near Minneopa State Park, and In 1930 this section of the road and No. 16 to Lake Crystal were paved. During the past sumnrer No. 5 was graded from the junction with No. 16 to J&mboy, and a contract was awarded on October 14 for grading from Amboy to Blue Earth. "Original plans of the highway department contemplated 1 waiting till 1932 to grade from Blue- Earth to the Iowa line. Realizing- that this would necesaitate another year of" detour on United States- highway No. 169, designated on July 15', 1930, the Chamber of Commerce of 3fan- Uato and other towns along this road led a movement to get the grading into tire 1931 program 1 . . "As the entire- stretch will' degraded in 1931 it will be possible- to pave the highway in 1932 or 19S3' at the latest, The Highway department favors the plan to allow new grades to settle two winters- before paving, but where cuts and' fill's 1 are- not great one winter's settling- considered sufficient;"' "Several weeks ago th'e Ch'amb'evof Commerce was informed that grading No. 5 from Blue- Earth to tire Iowa line would probably- have to' wait till 1932. Immediate^ action' was' taken, with the result' announced' last week. "One week ago last' nlgttt repve^- sentatlves of all cities-on-Nb. 5' from Mankato to the Iowa line 1 attended 1 a meetings- sponsored 1 by tfte- Blue- Earth Community club- at Blue Earth to consider steps which- mlght hasten the project: Th> group' voted to arrange a Hearing- Before- Commissioner Babcock'; "United States highway No. 169' links Kansas City and' otHer- points- South Cresco, Jan. 20 — Mr. and Mrs. Victor Applegate, Convlth, neWlyweds, were dinner guests Satin-day evening of Mr, and Mrs. Willard Gregson, Algona.
