Mr. Danson, who Is married, had studied law four years under Judge D. F. Coyle, Humboldt, and his father, meanwhile living. here. He is already filling out the unexplred term of his father as , justice. He has been one of the leaders in Boy 'Scout work here, and he la a. lifelong resident of Algona. He does not consider the number "13" unlucky, for that was his number in the bar examination. ' In early days It was not uncommon for young men to study law in law offices and be admitted to the bar on examination, but for the last' 40 years or so it has been customary to go to a law school, to. be graduated from which a three-year course is necessary, plus a year or two of liberal arts.

CHAPTER A copy of. the G-lendale, Calif., daily News-<Press under .date of last Thursday reports the installation of Mrs. Forrest Jones as regent of the Glepdale chapter of" the D. A. R. Mrs. Jones Is best remembered here as Katie, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs* J. E. Blackf ord. - The News- Press devoted nearly a "column tp'a report of the meeting.'! ; Mrs. Jo'nes was quoted as saying that.the aim .of •the chapter during her administration would .be to "foster true patriotism and aid In securing for mankind the blessing of liberty." Following Installation! she announced appointment of a large--number" of committee chairmen. At luncheon in connection with the meeting Mrs. Jones was hospitality, -chairman. Twro cousins, Mrs. Lillian Sawih and Kate Sawln, both of Los Angeles, were her personal guests. Mrs. /Jones appears, to have'just retired as president of the Glendale Art association; at any rate, is is 'said .that "Mrs, Browne presented to Mrs.' Jones a 'bouquet of roses from women who served as off leers on i the board of A lone bandit caused a real sensation at Elmore at a little after 8 o'clock last Thursday morning, when he held up the First National bank and quietly walked away with nearly ?6,000 in currency, according to the Eye which goes on to-say: C. J. Katzenmeyer, asistant cash ier, opened the bank doors about 2C minutes to 8 o'clock. -He went to th cloak-room in the rear of the bank to turn on the lights,, and noticed that the telephone, wires were cu and that- the' telephone Receiver wai missing: Turning around to. inves tlgate, Katzenmeyer was given real surprise, when something hard was.pressed against his back, am the order was issued, "Stick, 'em up I'm boss now." .Bobber Escapes Capture The bandit then ordered Katzen meyer back behind the counter. A first, he told him to He down on th floor,; but soon changed his min and 'told him it would be all.rlgh If he sat on a chair; but he threat ened him not to make a*iy fals moves. The bandit then asked-how many .worked in the .bank, and whether or not Katzenmeyer '.was able to open the same. Katzenmeyer told him that A. F.. Weyer, the cashier, usually opened, the safe, and this satisfied the bandit, as he said toe would wait. ' ., •At a few minutes before^eight, G. T. Taylor, another employe^ walked in, and after ordering" ,Ta*ylor to "stick 'em -up," the bandit placed him on a" chaif'-near' Katzenmeyer.' - ' Forced to Open-Safe . , About this'time-the. time lo€k on the bank' was* off and the bandit ordered- taylor to open the. safe, which he did • in short; order. ' The bandit -then -forced Taylor to put all the'Currency In a money bag, which the bandit -had placed hear the safe beforehand. The bandit did not take any silver. Following this, Taylor and Katzenmeyer were locked In the Lewis Kresensky, son of Mrs. J. C. Kresensky, Algona, principal' of the Mankato high school, spoke last Thursday before the -Kiwanls club on education anci methods, of teach- ng, which, he said, have changed as much as civilization itself. In the old days a teacher taught the three, "R's" and used the birch rod enthusiastically. Now there are no birch rods, and children are educated according to their capacity to learn rather'than according to a fixed standard of knowledge. Y idivillzation advanced from the simple to the complex. The kite string brought the dynamo, store- keeping became merchandising, school teaching has become a profession. Girls in the old days were prinr cipally ornamental; it was considered a waste of time to teach them. •Now the theory is that when the mother of a family has received an education she In turn educates the entire family. Mr.-Kresensky chose reading an example of progress .made in educational methods. The old theory wa.s that anything a child disliked 'was good for ,,him. , Milton's Paradise Lost was a, notable example. High school children had to read It whether or no, and its symbolism was' lost under compulsion. The book is too "oldish" in style. It was writ ten. by ' an old man with the thought 'of death ever uppermost. In additloh Milton was blind, and 'he had the ideas of a blind man, especially in his conception of paradise. .-•'•• Youth on the other hand, especially the high-school youth, looks forward to life on the threshold of which he stands. Death is distant, something unpleasant in the dim future;, in a youthful way, he sheds all thought of it. Burke's famous^ reconciliation speech is another example of wonderful English on a dead subject concerning which there is now no argument. Youth' is not in the lea.st interested in questions like this, 'set- fled 150 years ago.-Youth wants live questions, such as 'Root's speech on the constitution of New York. This considers problems which youth must in time solve. Mr. 'Kresensky warned that it is nearly impossible to. fool a high school youngster. It can't be done, for the youngster reads an older person with ease, and duplicity, evasion, and hlgh-hattedness :are recognized and are treated accordingly by the high" schodr'student. - , ERRORS IN TWO PRECINCTS FOR Stillman Gains 2ft and Miller Is Benefited 10. There were few changes In the official canvass of returns of the primary electlon.by the board of supervisors- Tuesday. The biggest cama in the vote for county attorney. Two) error's were found, G. W. Stillmaa. gaining 20 • votes in * Wh'lttemora township and ;H. W. Miller-ten vote* in Eagle township. These •changes gave Miller a total of 2624 and Stillman 2570, or a majority for Mr. Miller of only 54. In. the unofficial returns as sent in by- the election clerks, the Miller majority was 64. It is understood that there will be no contest for a re- the Glendale Art association* during her presidency." The News-Press ran a picture of Mrs^Jones in connection with the story" of the meeting.

Taylor and Katzenmeyer both yelled as-hard as they, could, but the safe deadened the sound, -and no one heard them till S. H. Taylor walked in, heard their cries, and unlocked the, vault. From- indications ; \at one of . the back windows, the bandit, evidently used a jimmy to pry it open. The bottom of the window plainly showed where the jimmy-was used, as the •wood around the frame was bent and dented. The top latch on the window was also broken off, This no doubt was done in the early morning, and after the bandit entered he man, and the brother Earl, and the.l remained till the bank was opened, ceremony was performed -by -ah uncle, who is a preacher, there.

Kent returned one day last week from a visit to the Pord plant at Des Moines, which started volume production of the new V-8 and 4- cylinder cars May 31. The reopening returns to-work and relieved the Des Moines unemployment situation considerably. The building 'covers 3% acres of ground and has '275,000 square feet of floor space. The capacity is 820 complete cars daily and the plant suplies dealers in SI Iowa counties, among them the Kent Motor Co. The average monthly employment _ s of the plant in 1931- was 700 men, and the minimum' wage is $6 a day. .Resumption of manufacture by the Ford company is seen as an indicator of a return *to better times, and the release of the wage money at Des Moines will be a ma- terlail addition to Iowa income.
