In other words every family must again' have a surplus over fixed charges, Inflation is needed for this., If this country had, real leadership a start toward prosperity would be noticed within 90 days, Mr, Cosson declared.

Miss Coate would be a great loss, indeed, to any community. Situation to Unfortunate. After many long .years of service and devotion, to the Algona hdgh school, it must be very discouraging, and I might say humiliating to one as sensitive and conscientious as Miss Coate to have such an unfortunate situation arise at this late oate. Had she been employed by a reputable concern the/same number of years, I am sure she would have been retired on pension, and then, only at her own request. Her brand of loyalty and abilfty would have guaranteed her that. ' Perhaps, I have not been accurately appraised of the reasons which call for such* action .-on-v.the part,so£ the school board; Jbut Whatever .they may be, permit me to say that "Miss Ooate has "that intangible something" which can not be acquired from books or from mere master degrees. To have such discipline over all the pupils In the high school is an art in itself, to say nothing of her great ability as a "character builder." • Miss Coat* ag Inspiration. Miss Coate inspires success. May I suggest that, you look over the list of pupils who have 'attained that goal since they, were graduated,from th^OjAigona high,school? One case in 'particular comes to mind just now. In recent years, did:not Lucille Windell (now Mrs. Paul Zerfass) bring honor to herself and to Algona by winning out over all in a Latin contest while she was a freshman -at-the-state university? Beyond Lucille's own ability, I feel confident this could not have been accomplished anywhere else, as a freshman (without additional study) and-it was only because of having been taugiht so thoroughly by Miss Coate that she could do so. What-' ever is learned in any Miss Coate's classes, whether in Latin, geometry, algebra, etc., it remains with one the rest of one's |lf«; U IB taught -in such a way that one Juat can't forget. ^ Influence on Writer. Barring the influences of my own I shall always call Algona '%ome," and heretofore I have always mentioned my old town with great pride and satisfaction. Does Algona want great blot to stand out against high school .now includes graphy and typing in its ,£j» m _f fed. to note that the Algona stenb- - — -./*"--o *«t . »uo ourpl" culum. I hope the pupils who choose this course realize the opportunity afforded thereby and are dlliger.My applying themselves to gain all the necessary knowledge thereof while In high school, which will obviate the necessity of their going to a business school after they are graduated. Too many parents have to make a sacrifice .to put their children through high school, and then; on graduation, find they can riot be self-supporting. Pull knowledge of the principles ot shorthand and typing is what one needs, coupled with the ambition to get ahead. Experience comes later. The average employer is lenient with the beginner, 'in my experience I have hired too many just out of high school not to know \vherebf I speak. 'Despiite the fact I never used shorthand and . typing, havinar acquired,>that ..knowledge^ after graduation, , ftvwas' certainly^the'} "entering wedge"" to the > position;i'iheld for many yea^s prior to my marriage. 'Because of the training I received in the Algona schools, I was Howosver, I able to. do other work. might add that everyone, especially a girl, could qualify for a poin'-.lon more quickly by knowing shorthand and typing. . It is the "stepping stone" to/good secretarial positions or other' .positions of .responsibility. And it Is something upon which one can, by "foruslving up,",fall.back, in time. ot reverse*^., '.' Tlirea Teachers Stand Oat. • ': In conclusion I can truthfully say that I enjoyed my Algona school days, particularly in high school^ and I consider that it was an honor and a privilege to have been under the guidance and influence of Mbw Coate, Mr. Overmyer, and "fine la'te Louise McCoy. What a joy tt was to'me to go back to Algona for the Diamond Jubilee three years ago and to visit the^High -school and *to find Miss Coate Still there, looking juat th» same. ,-,--.,._.
