T HIS PICTURE, which needs no name, will arouse sweet memories of school days In the hearts'of more than 1200 alumni of the Algona high school. If there.be among them some who on occasion had to be disciplined, time,- which softens all things, has no doubt erased every recollection except that of the devoted teacher-who has dedicated a lifetime ,to the education of Algona's boys and girls. Mr. Carlon, who Is the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. w. V. Carlon, has for some years been In the employ of Allyn & Bacon, leading New York schoolbook publishers. He is a brother 4 of Mrs, D. P..

Park js ja Minnesota state id Harvard gradu- i^lnfljns etudent, «f relation* awtflor of Willow Grove, Pa., Apr. 11—The news that there was doubt concerning the retention of Miss Coate as high school principal was a deep ehock to me, though I suppose it should not have been, coming, as it did, on the heels of a spirited election in which the .-voters saw fit to retire Mr. Harrington. . I live far away from Algona, and It Is getting to, be a sizeable number of years since I have been back,'but I still think of the old town as home. No doubt I know little of local conditions, and what I say should be taken in'the light of that fact; but I do know that this is a year of political unrest .everywhere and that the voters many times seem to want change just for the sake of change. It is certainly, regrettable, however, whenever the current discontent strikes: r at;:the;''^cHobls.'' " '" ;. Happy School:Years Recalled. : I recall my years in the Algona schools as the,, happiest., and most carefree of my life. I look on the late Mr. Sullivan and on Mr. Harrington as the deans of the Algona school system of my time; on Mr. Overmyer as the wise educator who helped these and the other members of a sound board in their planning; and on Miss Coate as not only the •highest-class of teacher but as a kind of second mother to all her pupils, in whom they could confide .and be assured of understanding judgment and counsel. :'•'. Truly, I think I have never known a more wonderful woman than Miss Coate. I see her as one whose light has been hid under a bushel in a small town, when she might '. have cut a much larger figure in the educational world. Instead of further- Ing her own Interests, she has been content to teach; uninteresting, humdrum work at best, for the teacher's thinking must always, be adapted to the level of an ever'new crop of immature e.tudents. ; Tribute to Ml»s Coate. t I think of^MIss Coate'as having, in hei- long service, molded the characters of many hundreds of the fine type of Algona boys; and, girl* to which the home papers so often proudly refer. Your own boys are among them, and as I write I think ateo of Frank Warner, the Quart- ons, Howard Mawdsley, the Kresen- skys, Donald Hutchison, ; •: others whom it would'take an hour just ,to name. And the girls, too: don't you think that Algona/s present home life reflects the 30-year influence of Mies Coate? -'•-''.I lack words to express appreciation of what Mias Coate has meant to me; and I think I represent the opinion of the overwhelming- major* Ity of A. H. S. alumni'when I say that she ought to be retained ' as long as she will eerve. And I think that Algona could well afford to pension her when she retires, though no pension could measure the influence for good which she has exercised. It hurts my P rlde in the old town to think that there could be question of her involuntary retirement. Teachers Set For the last 1? years, I have been in work which brings me into intimate" touch with thousands of superintendents, principals, and teachers; and my standard of- comparison has always been Mr. Overmyer, Miss Coate, and the late Louise McCo,y. The other teachers of my time did not exercise so lasting an influence op me, though I remember many of them, particularly Mrs: Howard Beardsley, the first domestic science teacher. My sister Marjorie was so proud to be able to ehow mother bow to cook cabbage, without "smelling up" the house. Even I learned how, second-hand, and I remembered well enough years later to ehow my wife (but d.on't let this HIGHWAY SAFETY DRIVE EXPLAINED TO LEGION HERE Six'Kossuth Legion posts , and Auxiliary units were represented at a meeting last Wednesday evening at the Algona post's hall, where a program on safety problems In the home and ; on the highways was given. /There were more than 100 persons in attendance from Swea City, Burt, Titonka, Wesley, Whittemore, and Fenton. The principal speakers were Jack Higley, Emmeteburg, district Legion commander; Ida Larson, Swea City, past district' Auxiliary publicity director; 'Ray Murray, Buffalo'Center, past Legion department vice commander; Mrs. Lulu Lawhorn, Garner, district Auxiliary publicity chairman; Sheriff G.

L. 1 Lease, Wesley, county Legion commander, and Mrs. Lloyd Schenck, Burt, county Auxiliary president, presided in turn. Music was provided -by a double trio of Auxiliary members. In a Globe- Gazette report of the meeting Mr. Hall said: ^ "Mr. Higley's talk dealt largely with the importance of membership. Mr. Murray discussed some phases of Legion responsibility at this time. Mrs. Denton described plans •which have -been made for the annual poppy sale and told how the money derived from these events is being expended. Mrs. Lawhorn instructed unit officers concerning the handling of local publicity. "The Cerro Gordo county sheriff's addreaa had to'do with safety in the home and 'was -directed principally to. the women present. -Burns scalds, falls, and poisons all came In for attention.

SIX-TON LOAD COSTS TRUCK OWNER $100 Fine Assessed When Truck Plows Up Highway. A Brady transfer truck from Fort (Dodge loaded with six tons, or nearly double the weight limit of the embargo on Kossuth .roads, got mired south of town on the No. 169 detour last Thursday, and the services of a tractor and several men were required to get it out. The driver, who was arrested and'charged with carrying an overload, posted bond, and on Monday a representative of the company paid a $100 fine,, after a plea of guilty before Justice Winkel. The, Brady company or its em- ployes evidently intended disregard of state and county embargos, both of which place a limit of three tons on truck loads. This includes the Veight of'truck. The truck, coming from the south, navigated the roads successfully til! t reached the detour south of the irown farm, where Its weight broke the gravel crust of >the road and the vheels sank into soft mud. Driver Plows Up Road. The driver then attempted to plow lie way to solid ground. He kept the truck running and tore up the •oad for several yards. A county caterpillar attempted to flrag out the truck, but was unable to budge it. Men then worked with shovels in an attempt to provide solid footing under the wheels, bu this too was unsuccessful. 'Finally county officials forced unloading and after another prolonged offer the truck was pulled forward to a hard'surface'. : •: '.:""'' '''":"• •' : --.~~]--, The.driver excused : ,himself , on thi ground that he, had to carry what ever load he was sent out with. He was," however, placed under bond. At first there was an inclination oh the .part of the Brady company'to fight, but enthusiasm that hai waxed had cooled by Monday, am there was then no attempt to escape the -penalty. • ' , Threat of Suit Disappears. The company at first claimed tha the county was at fault, in not hav ing. the road in condition for tr'ave by trucks, claiming that its true! license fee entitled It to send truck over the roads with any load fo which it had been licensed. A threa to sue the county for damages was made, but it will probably not b carried out; since evidence is stron of complete disregard of the em bargo. . -'.-. • '. Some weeks ago the state high way commission put an embarg limit of three tons weight on truck and loads. This applied only to stat graveled, roads. The.heavy trucks then took to using the county roadi ,.wlth.the>esult.that these roads BOO became filled witjiimudholes.

Lloyd Dilllon, Ringsted, paid ?20 and costs, and Bernard Johnson, who also gave- his address as Ringsted, Was bound to the: grand Jury on a charge of driving while intoxicated. The Johnson car, in mean- derihgs about town, smashed a fender on the A. H. Borchardt car.
