After a period, with the Walla Walla, Wa*H., Daily Bulletin, he served as Advertising manager for the Everett, Wash.; Morning Jfews, and for PROFESSOR AT FAIRFIELDIN COAT[TRIBUTE Asks for Favorable Decision on Reelection. By Raymond Bradley. Parsons College, Fairfield, Apr. 26 —I note that there is some discussion over the retention of Miss Coate as .principal, and I am writing In the hope that if the matter is not settled I may do good in the direction of a favorable decision. For years I have pointed to Aleona a e a town which has had the good sense to pick the best talent to serve on Its school board and retain teachers of proved efficiency. Few towns have the fine educational traditions characteristic of Algona. I am afraid that these characteristics have come to be''taken .too. much for granted; yet they have not come Into .existence by accident Demo Rally To Be Held at Bancroft A mass meeting of Kossuth democrat* has been called by County Chairman C. B. Murta&h and -will fte held at Bancroft Sat- iirday nljht at 8 (/clock. It will be addressed by Louis Murphy, Dubuque, candidate foe the democratic nomination for V. S. Senator. Mr. Murphy, well known throughout the state, Is considered a democratic state leader. He-was formerly U. 8. Collector of Internal Revenue for' the northern district of Iowa, and has been active In politics many years. A number of Algonlans plan to attend the . Bancroft meeting, and leading democrats from many other towns hereabouts ore expected. the last^year been city edi- ^ tor 'and advertising manager for the fuyallup Valley, Wash., Tribune. He ia married and has two children, a fepy of seven and a e\rl of three, KOSSUTH SHORT OF NORMAL v IAIN SO FAR THIS YEAR VQnlx M Inches of rain was record- M here In April, which was more than •%% Inches below normal.

A letter on this pn?c conies . from a member of one of Al- gona'g pioneer families, the second son of the late A.. D. Brad- Icy and his surviving 1 widow, who ,still lives here. The older, son, .Xarl, has for many years been county superintendent at Mnsca^ tine, and the third son, Willis, Is a practicing 1 lawyer and teacher at Minneapolis. There are two daughters, Mrs. C. E. Chltty, wife of a Correctlonvllle dentist, and another, .also married, who lives In Illinois. The writer of the letter, who holds a Ph. B. degree from the Minnesota state university, Is head of the department of education at Parsons college, Fairfield. but as the result of years of effort on the part of Algona'e educationa workers. The, sons and daughters of Algona have gone . .to • college in larger numbers than. is common in towns not -having a college. A frienc visiting my home one summer while OC was in college asked me.seriously .whether: there "-were any who had been graduated from our school who did not go on >to some higher institution. These students have "made good" In college and in the, beat graduate schools and in .professional schools. They have been successful in many types of professional and business life. Profited by Instruction. I am one of those who 'came up through the Algona school system and had the opportunity of profiting from the teaching and the inspiration of such personalities as Supt J. F. Overmyer, the late Louise McCoy, and Miss Coate. I do not claim to have made much out of my'.life, nor to have rendered any great service to society; but I have been a teacher . and a school superintendent, and I am now a college professor engaged in the business of training teachers. The. ability to study and to learn, I feel sure, was largely developed in me by the careful tutelage of MJes Coate. As a freshman I was an indifferent student of' L^tin. However, if I 'did not have my.; lesson at recitation time, she saw to it that I did have it before I left the building. Many times we both ate a late supper because of my indifference, or inability. Miss Coate never scolded much, nor made me feel insigr nificant or incompetent. She just insisted that I do my work and -that I develop proper standards by which to measure myself and my. work. By the-time I was % senior J did fairly well, and when I went to college and took Latin under another fine, scholarly teacher I was complimented upon the thoroughness and the excellence of my secondary prepara* tion. Awakes Student's Ambition, Miss Coate has the, knack": of awakening a student's ambition "4o learn. I wel{ remember the reactions of members of my ,<resbman class. We were impressed with her masterful scholarship and with her insistence that we .measure' up to her ideals for us. We exclaimed more than once, "Ohi if we could just know as much as she does!" Miss Coate has taught subject matter as<J done it well; and what is even more important she has taught and girts and has helped makefthem men and wom.en character and Ability, ,« pecause Mte8 Coate iha?

John Hargreaves played the lead- Ing part of Robert Preston, successful young business man whose doctor tells him he'took the wrong medicine for a headache and has only 24'hours to live. In these 24 hours he gives away'his fortune to employes and charitable Institutions, which contrasts with a reputation as a hard-boiled 'business man whose motto had been to make money and never to mix sentiment with business. Catherine vSchulz played the part of Ann Winston, who had tried and failed to get Preston to sell lots' adjoining a charitable hospital to the hospital instead of for a factory site and to make him see the beauty in life without the power of money. In the evening of his 24 hours 'Preston married Vivian Darrell, a flapper, played by Helen Becker. A bogus minister (Glair Blossom) performed the ceremony, and Preston Algona Markets letter arrived.
