Paper. Makes Good A 'recent copy of the Ward county, N. D., Independent, published at Mlnot, carried a 3-column story concerning the experiences oC Raymond Douglas, former Kossuth boy, the Son of Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Douglas. Mrs. Douglas was formerly Emma Zanke, and she was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. ?Tos. Zanke. Raymond is a nephew of .T. H. Zanke and Mrs, Jacob Wlnkel. As a boy Raymond lived with his parents on a farm near Algona. In 1901 the family moved to a farm near Minot where they have woman. He brought home many rflementoes, including pictures taken with his own camera. He had to keep the camera hidden from the soldiers. On the whole, Raymond apparently thinks the Russians are still a long way from achievement of the ambitious plans which the Soviet government Is endeavoring to carry out. laards Heet Saturday— 1-sized crowd attended a fuard meeting at Arlene Dan- lurday afternoon.

Raymond grew up there; and after he had finished his local.schooling he entered the North Dakota agricultural college, from which he was in due time graduated." 'He then entered Iowa State college for special studies. Two years ago one of the Ames professors was invited to go to Russia to introduce scientific methods into" 1 the breeding of hogs. The professor could not go, but on his recommendation Raymond was accepted. . He went to Russia, and after IS months there reached home In time for last Christmas with his parents. Early in January he reentered the Ames college. Nothing to Do 4 Months. The independent's account of Raymond's experiences in Russia is packed full of interesting facts, but its length forbids republication in full. He reported at Moscow, but for 4% months he remained Unassigned. Finally he served notice that he must be assigned to duty or sent home, and this produced re- suits. He was sent to Poltova, a large city in the Ukraine, where the Soviet government maintains an All-Union Scientific Institute for Research. In connection with this institute there is a great swine farm. The director was jealous of Raymond, who found that everything was being done the wrong way. Raymond had to present his case before a committee sent from Moscow, and he made such an impression on the committee that the director was discharged and Raymond was appointed in his stead. The're were 10,000 sows on this farm. ' Hog Cholera Presents Puzzle. Other Soviet-owned farms number jV/fANY ALGONA, SEXTON, Wes- ivl ley, Brltt, Burt, Lakota and Titonka oldtirhers will recall this face as soon as they learn that it is the present likeness of Herman Nelson, Brltt boy who became a banker at Wesley, then ran a bank at Titonka, and 20 years ago entered the Bank of Glendale, Calif., under the well known former Algonian, F. H. Vesper, rising to the management when Mr. Vesper retired, all as told in a story in last week's Advance. S0 Thompson Roman' up to 5,000 sows. Raymond found that so many hogs presented peculiar' difficulties when cholera Invaded the' herds. Methods of combating 'the disease which have been successful in American herds of around 100 hogs had to foe changed. A great many hogs were lost. The Russians raise a bacon type of hogs from stock secured in England. In hogs as in all things else their great ambition is to excel America, but Raymond does not eeem convinced that with their wasteful incapacity they constitute a present menace to this country. They are also'going in for beef raising and dairying, but with little or no greater success. The great lack in Russia is gold with which to deal with the rest of the world. The Russians are now letting many of their American specialists go, because they can hire- Germans cheaper. The Germans will accept tjie Russian ruble, but Amer- .icans demand half their pay in gold for a specified period before they 'leave home; they get the other half in rubles, but that goes for living expenses in Russia. No Blch in Russia. There are no rich people in Russia—and "rich" is comparatively "poor" in America. A peasant with two cows is "rich." The ''rich" have 'no voice Jn government, and when they are declared "rich" they lose their property to the government and the whole family Is arrested and sent to Siberia. Mansions the Qldtlme "rich" under the Czar all been taken over. The place where Raymond worked was once returned owned by a city doctor, ^his man she was killed in 'the revolution, and his wife and daughter were later murdered on the estate. . 'Some jpf the many things Ray- rhond took note of are: The peas- ante do not like the government, but though there are 160,000,000 of them against 3,000,000 bolshevists 'they dare say . nothing. The Russians work five days, then lay off a day; there Is no Sunday. They get two weeks a year off with pay, and spend the vacation at some former palace or other government rest house. • Churches ^Uglily Taxed. There are few Churches, and what there are are highly taxed. Religion is not taught to young people. Marriage and divorce are by contract, but the system is not as corrupt as some American papers make out. Theft and murder are frequent. Children attend school through the eighth grade, and if they show promise are continued in school. Much of their study consists of soviet progaganda. Workers receive about $20 a month. Community kitchens are maintained and meals are. sold at low prices. There are no fat people in Russia. The j'oung people look well, but their elders are gaunt and wear a worried look. The movies consist largely of government propaganda. The lower classes : never get a chance to ride in an automobile. As Interpreter during his stay in Russia, Raymond had a young SCHOOL TO RECEIVE TOURNAMENT PROFIT Attendance at the ibasketball tournament week before last netted the Algona high school returns of $168.29. There will -be a profit after expenses of around $40 are deducted. There were 117 season • tickets sold, aggregating $175.50, and 80 children's season tickets at $1 each. Single admissions totaled $574. The total attendance was 1295 adults and 483 students, and total receipts were $829.50. The local school received 15 per cent of the gross proceeds, and 25 per cent went to the state high school athletic association. From the balance was taken the transportation expense of the 20 schools participating, totaling $409.97. Elimination of these expenses leaves balance of '$97.74, of which one-half goes to the Algona high school, the other half to the state athletic association. In addition to mileage expense of the schools entrance fees of $3 were returned. From a financial stand point the tournament was a sue cess, and the officials now look for ward to future successful tourney: here. / "SIOUX" STOPPED BEFORE . SMASHING CAR ON TRACK Charles Entsmlnger, Mitchell, D., attended the Grover funeral a Burt Mar. 1. Some 30 or more year ago he lived with the Grovers Portland township and taugh school. He is now heavily intereste in a line of five South Dakota lum beryards. Mr. Estminger left horn for Burt in his car. In the evening west of Emmetsburg, his lights wen out, and he drove off the road at Milwaukee crossing. Passerby were trying to help get the car back into the highway when the Sioux's headlight came into view. Mr. .Entsminger ran down the track and flagged the train, which stopped, but not till it had brushed the car and torn off a fender. NEW FIRE TRUCK HERE; PUMPS 500 GAL. PER MINUTE Algona's new fire truck arrived wo weeks ago last night and Is eady for use. Mayor Specht, Fire hlef Oscar Anderson, Frank Kohl- aas, and Ralph Elbert went !to Ilnneapolls the .Tuesday before to vatch the truck In tests and'drive it ome. The old chemical truck was aken to Burt a week ago Friday morning. The test at Minneapolis before the ruck could be approved by Insur- nce companies required that it run tumping water at capacity for six lours. This was done by sucking he water (from the Mississippi. The ruck pumps 450 to 500 gallons a minute and forces it out at more hah 200 .pounds pressure. Five hose Ines can be run at the same time: ne 2%-inch, two iy 2 -inch, and two 1%-lnch. The new truck carries a 100-gal- on "booster" tank which holds water for farm and small town fires ivhere not much water is necessary. At farm fires the truck can draw water from wells and rivers down to 25 feet beneath the level of the pumps. The truck will travel, nearly 60 miles an hour. The chemical tanks taken off the old truck were completely overhauled before being placed on the new truck. Three hundred feet of new hose for the chemical tanks is carried by the new truck. The other old fire truck to retained by the city is of the same capacity as the new truck, but it'is in MONEY FOR TAXES Or any worthy purpose, yon can secure $300 OR LESS On FURMTUIU3, LIVESTOCK AUTOSrOBILE Repay In small uniform payments See monthly poor condition, as It is 14 or 15 years old.
