For 25 years the Algona high school has been accredited by the North Central Association of colleges and secondary schools and Superintendent J. F. Overmyer Monday morning received his 26th certificate from the association, certifying that the Algona high school has been continuously accredited since 1906, which was the second year that Mr. Overmyer was in charge of the Algona schools. The Association each year prepares a list of accredited high schools, and no school Is accredited for more than a year at a time. The school must maintain the highest rating by the school authorities of the state before the association will issue a certificate, and in addition must conform to certain standards required by.the association. The building, equipment, library, laboratories, records, graduation requirements, instruction end spirit teachers, both in training and salary, and school program as a whole are used as a basis In determining whether or not the school is accredited. Representatives visit the school on occasion. Operates In Twenty States. The North Central Association composed of 20 states in the central part of the United States. The accrediting 'is a cooperative undertaking by the colleges, universities, and secondary schools, and membership Is voluntary. The graduates of an accredited high school may enter institutions of higher -education without entrance examination, provided that they have studied the required .courses. Students from a school .not accredited must pass an entrance examination on all subjects before they are admitted. This privilege extends practically over the United States, for other associations recognize schools accredited by the North Central. Accredited high school graduates are certain that high school diplomas will be accepted by state boards in granting certificates for professions, such as medicine. In some states graduation from an approved high school is required. High Standards are Required. .To merit approval a high school must maintain a high standard, and the community Is assured of a modem program of education. The examination by Inspectors and supervisors assures that the school will keep the standards and prevent spread of objectional practices. The accredited school has a greater prestige, attracts non-resident pupils and the public has more confidence in such a standard school. .The power of the, association in education circles is great, and the Big Ten athletic association is be lleved to have bowed to the will of the association at the time of the athletic scandal In which he state 'university was Involved a year or so ago. Though not officially re ported, it is generally believed that threat. of non-accrediting had much to do with the clean-up' of athletic •situations at schools other than the University of Iowa, and the sudden change of heart taken toward the University of Iowa by other schools. The association was founded in ISSo, and the Algona school, with Its quarter century record, is one of the oldest in the list.

BANCROFT YOUTH IS CAUGHT WITH ALCOHOL, BOTTLES William Janvrin, Bancroft youth, was arrested last we%k Wednesday night, .when Deputy Sheriff Harris and his assistant, Floyd Newville, found him behind a straw stack In a field north' of town, filling half pint bottles with alcohol. The officers, who had been serving papers, noticed one of the Robinsons drive into the field and stop behind the stack. They watched a few minutes, and saw the car come out and head for Bancroft. It was just dusk, and the officers drove into the field without lights, intending to"lie"ih""walffbf Robinson's return; but when they came to the stack they found Janvrin beside his car, which had been hidden from view from the road. In the seat of Janvrin's Ford coupe there were seven half-pint bottles lined up flat on the seat. The caps had been taken off and neatly laid in front of the bottles. Under the running board was a can half full of alcohol, a gallon jug half full, and two filled quart bottles. Two pints partly full were found in the car. In the back end of the car were 26 half-pint bottles in a carton, an empty gallon can; and an empty quart bottle. There was also a half gallon bottle and a half bushel of caps and various-sized corks. In -the front end was a 5-ft. rubber hose, a half Inch In diameter which Janvrin had evidently been using to fill the bottles. Janvrin was brought before Justice L. A.

Good-sized- congregations were pres- at morning, afternoon, and even- sessions,.,, Thirty-nine out. of i visitors attending, represent- fifteen towns, four states, and one foreign country. Music was furnished by the local choir, direct-' by Mrs. F. H. Webster, and as>d at the afternoon service by Isenberg quartet from the East Chain Free Mission church. The anniversary sermon was delivered by the pastor, the Rev. Frank H. Webster, whose texts were 1 Samuel, 7il2, and Exodus, 14:15. A synopsis of Mr. Webster's re marks follows: -. "The .historical sketch which will be brought to you this evening, arid my sermon will have a common background In that little group of sturdy -Moneers who In May, ligGl, entered Into covenant relations and united to form the First Baptist church of Algona, then a little village of possibly 200 souls. Look ing back along the uneven and oft times uphlllward course of this church through these 70 years, we recognize the hand of God in its beginning and His blessing every step of the'way. Church 'Regular' but Liberal. "The church was organized with 16 members, but they repre- a high type of Christian man- and womanhood. It was the irch to be organized in illage, but the first group to erect a house of worship. "The church was called a 'regular' Baptist church. In rather a marked degree it lias been 'regular' throughout the years. It has been free from has been constructive, holding fast to age-long truths; but it has been progressive in its " open-nvrhdedness towards the new and the worth while.. In a time of real transition it has walked calmly between the two extremes, holding to real fundamentals but unafraid of , truly modern interpretations and applications. "Humble but marked achieve ments have been: the building of the first Ihouse of worship 'in Algona, occupied 'In 1870; the erection of the present building in 1893; the record in-gathering following the Lyon union evangelistic campaign; and a heroic part In the New World movement, when $10,740 was contributed for mtssionaary work In the five- year period between 11019 and 1824. "But the greatest work done by the church In these 70 years, has been the persistent and harmoniously constructive conservation of spiritual values. Figures cannot tell the story. The greatest values have always baffled the statistician. , Progresses With the Times. "Nothing that lives remains static. - 'Speak unto the children of Israel that they go forward.' In the last issue of 'The Baptist' Dr. Scott asks, 'Do we need a new religion?' We frankly admit that we live in a different world from that in which Chrlst'iaid the foundations of the Christian church. We have outgrown old pseudo-scientific ideas. We ihave developed a new social consciousness. New inventions have revolutionized travel, . communication, and all phaases of industrial life. Have, we outgrown the religion of Jesus? "Many things have- changed, but as long as the old sun shines and our old world swings in its orbit and human hearts still have a real hungering for soul-fellowship with •God, we shall find our highest needs met in the Man of Nazareth and our highest ideals realized in following in His steps."

Dewel .'Saturday and Sunday, Apr. 25 and 26, and on learning that they gave excellent service Mr. Rice telegraphed last week Monday for 15 more sets. The instruments are connect- ea with tne loud speaker, and the transmitters are wired thence to selected seats. A patron who Is hard of hearing calls for a. head instrument or receiver at the ticket office and is ushered to a seat where he connects it with the transmitter wire. He then places the instrument over one ear and turns it on. The cord leading to the earpiece carries a special device by which the volume of sound may be regulated. After testing out an Instrument, Mr. Dewel said he was able to understand practically everything, that was said by the characters on the screen,. • PROPELLER BREAKS BUT PILOT LANDS The propeller of the Curtlss-Robln biplane owned by William Titus and Leighton Misbach was shattered in a dive at the local Legion airport Sunday, when the plane ^ was only 100 feet from the ground, "but Titus, who was piloting, circled back over the highway and made a perfect landing in front of a-large audience The propeller, which was of wood, had evidently been constructed of defective material. It is believed that it hit a bird. The sudden strain when it broke cracked the crank case and threw the motor out of line. The loud' report caused by the snapping of the "prop" brought' spectat tors to the field before the plane landed. Neither Titus nor M. H. Falkenhalner, passenger, was injured, nor the plane damaged in landing. When the accident occurred the plane was headed north, flying with the wind,"and it was necessary cross '.the road.. before it could turned ground and headed into wind for a landing. The plane is. to be repaired. Repairs will -include replacement the .propeller, realignment '', of „.. motor, and repair of the crankcase, Only one blade of the propeller been found up to Tuesday, when the other, blade was. found some distance from the scene of the accident.
