RED CROSS HAS SECTIONAL MEET, SWEA CITY, BURT Corkers in Eight North and Eight Center Totwfi- ships Hear St. Louis Representative TW=! flrgt Red Cross iseotlonal meeting for Kossuth county was held at Swea City last Thursday when the eight north townships and Swea City, Lakota and Ledyard were represented. Miss Margaret Murray of St. Louis, field representative presided, at the meetings and lead in discussions concerning the work of the Red Cross. She was highly complimentary concerning- the activities of the sections and of Kossuth county In general. France Slowly Starving Miss Murray reported, authentically, that the French were amazed at the size of the layette garments made here by Red Cross •workers and shipped to France. The average French child born today Weighs only 2V;. pounds. Our government sent over several million pounds of flour and this is browned, water added and a porridge made which is all the food children have before going to school. When food is available the younger children were fed away from older children who were hungry, too. Expectant mothers were included in this child-feeding program. Inadequate Clothing; Clothing in France is especially inadequate. Children sit in cold school rooms when the temperature is low and without overcoats. And most of the time, last winter, the school houses' were without heat. Suffering from hunger and lack of heat Is becoming a serious situation In France. Miss Murray said these reports Were brought back by Red Cross nurses who returned recently to this country. Meeting at Hurt At three o'clock Monday afternoon another sectional nientiny was held at Burt with eight center townships and Burt, Fcnlon Lone Rock, Titonka and Fenton represented. Because of the excellent condition in the north nnd central part of the county Miss Murray did not feel a need tr> hole' meeting in the south part of Kossuth. However, she held special conferences with the Algona chairman^ (Fred rrHmm, the war fund chairman, M. H. Falkenhainer. the county treasurer, Miss Louise Magnusson, and the service chairman, C. A. Phillips. Miss Muvray commended the county chairman, Mrs. H. E. Woodward, on her splendid efforts in perfecting Red Cross organizations in the county.

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN FINE SPRING CONCERT Presentation of Some Pine Young Voides in a Program at Auditorium Friday Night The spring concert by the voice students of Algona high school, held In the auditorium Friday evening, proved to a highly appreciative and large audience that there is much musical and voice talent amongst the high school students In Algona. Uhder the very able leadership of Jordan Johnson voice Instructor, the individuals "and various groups really put on a Worthwhile concert in a decidedly professional manner. Mr. Johnson has been a member of the faculty here only the past year. During that time he has developed some really good voices and has trained groups to an- exceptional standard. Program Well Rendered Singing "O Bread of Life," Vernon Voylos, soprano, opened the program very pleasingly. He was followed 'by Georgia Scribner, lyric soprano, a tuneful voice, singing "Lullaby." Merle Conklin followed with "On the Road to Mandalay." He has a good baritona voice, clear and pleasing, though the number was pitched rather low in places to hlhder volume. A ne- gro spiritual was next rendered by a seventh grade trio, Marilyn Tuttle, Marjorle Dewel and Shirley Helberg, with nice harmony and well-mixed voices. "Now the Day is Over" was given by an eighth grade boys' trio which failed in a good start because of a wrong pitch. However,^ with a note frc-m the piano Roger Slagle; Vernon Voyles and Joel Herbst finished the number very nicely. Seventh Grade Sextet "All Through the Night." a pleasingly rendered number by pleasing voices of the little ladies of the seventh grade was enjoyed and the singers, Marilyn Tuttle, Marjorie Dewel, Shirley Helberg, Joan Pletch, Ann Stillmari and Mary Lou Sandberg, covered close harmony very nicely. Two numbers were sung by the eighth grade sextet, Jane Morison, Harriet Vining, Lois Clawson, Roger Slagle, Joel Herbst and Dick Barker. The voices of the boys and girls blended to a very creditable rendition. "A Vesper Hymn", to the writer, was the outstanding sextet number on the program, rendered by the freshman sextet, perhaps because of the equality of voice timber and the especially fine response to direction. High School Sextet Mildred Faulstlch, Lorna Faulstich, Rosalie Swanson', Beverly Kinney, June Steven and Phyllis Maxwell, high school sextet, very pleasingly rendered two numbers. Having voices more developed than the younger sextet the girls handled "Wynken, Blynken and Nod" with best credit to their finish in group singing. Their voices were well blended and modulation was handled nicely. Perhaps the most popular number on the program, both from a musical as well as entertaining standpont was the double by the male quartet, made up of Calvin Wadleigh, Burns Nugent, Owen Nichols and Dick Ditsworth. The boys show a fine finish in harmony, their voices blend well and musically. Dances Are Pleasing With Mrs. Chas. Barrickman at the piano, Ann Stillman and Joan Pletch in a toe dance, Marjorie Dewel in a Spanish dance, Harriet Schoby in a tap dance and Rosalie Swanson in a toe dnce, these numbers were well received and cleverly done. The Junior choir, 53 of the younger voices, proved a pleasant surprise to the audience. These youngsters very ably handled five numbers, all of them good, tuneful harmony, even throughout and ex- Unim Tom ship Natives* Mamed 56 Yeafs ,.A*f«4 JW,rSi< kl O6 ,j j ;»8U, iMfSi Ai tj, j ... ft, H6mph1Il vint Mcffivoy attended a showeir .„ afternoon at St. John's Hall In Bah- fof' .Eileen Murray, Mild . rr s Murray will be mifrled Thursday to Omar 'Kelly 6f Detroit, Michi gan. ir Dcs-Molncs Plash Photo .During the open house held by Mr. and Mrs. P. A. McArthur, 113 South Heckart street last Tuesday afternoon, April 21, In honor .cf their golden wedding anniversary there were 115 visitors registered and extended congratulations. More than 80 cards and letters were recevled by the couple. During the afternoon the guests and visitors were served with refreshments. Rev, Harry Burns of the Methodist church made a congratulatory talk and Lester Wilson read an original poem written by him about the occasion. v The McArthurs are natives of Union township and with the (exception of two years have lived in that township and Algona. They were married in the Baptist church here on April 21, 1892. They have one son, Durwood, and a daughter,, Mrs. Wm. Broderson, both of whom are farming in Union township today. Blizzard on April 20,1892, Held Up the Hdntges Wedding Party Because of a real winter blizzard on April 20, 1892, a wedding party in Algona waa un^ able to drive to their home four, miles south of town. The wedding was that of Peter Hentges and Mary Miller, the ceremony held in St. Cecelia's church, with Father Niclhols reading (nuptial mass. The attendants were Jim Marso, now of Waseca, Minn., and Miss Anna Miller, now Mrs. Anna Schick, of 403 N.'Phillips.street, city. The blizzard was so severe that the wedding party had to stay in town that night. Hentges Formerly Here Mr. and Mrs. Hentges farmed in Kossuth 10 years following their marriage on the Waterhouse place 10 miles northeast of Algona. Following two years near Hobarton, they then moved to Marion Junction, S. D., and after farming there 16 years they bought the farm west of Gary, S. D., and after 22 years on that place they moved to Gary three years ago. <>. Open House April 20 ' .In celebration of the wedding held 60 years' ago, Mr. and Mrs. Hentges held open house in their South Dakota home April 20. Many of their old' relatives and friends from this county attended. Among them were Mrs. Anna Schick and two daughters, Minnie and Ada, of Algona. And the Hentges received many cards and congratulatory letters from former _ neighbors and friends in this, their former home county and town. Mr. and Mrs. Peter Hentges are the parents of ten children Hone of whom live in Iowa at "this time. 3—Plus Fun for the family pression well balanced. The youngsters surely pleased. There are some outstadningly good voices in the boys' glee club, and the two numbers were both well presented, with perhaps "In- victus", the better of the two because of the difficult modulations in several passages . Girls' Glee Club The three numbers selected for the girls' glee club proved the right sort to bring out exceptionally nice performance. The harmony in Concerto Bb Minor was close but the girls took care of that nicely and the echo effect in "The Green Cathedral" was nicely done. The mixed chorus showed a fine response to direction in the four numbers presented, expression, harmony and modulation by the group was distinctively outstanding. The accompanists for the program were Bill Burns and Meredith Raney. .Algona may well be proud of the musical talent in its high school and Mr. Johnson has in the past year brought out a response to direction', a finding of tone quality, assembling of group singing which Should rate weill in music contests. The auditorium was filled Friday night and its appreciation was shown in sincere and hearty applause. Congratulations to Mr. Johnson and his voice students.
