'?•<• TWO PAIRS ALGONA TWINS MAKE DAILY COLUMN IN PAPER Algonans who follow^ EJllzabeth Clarksons Zwart's column, "The Front Row" in the Dea Moinea Tribune were pleased to find the following item last week: "When Mrs. R. J". Laird, now of Des Moincs, was teaching a sub-pr'mary school class up in Algona almost 20 years ago, one of her pupils was Jimmy Spencer. The fact that Jimmy hits iiever forgotten "Teacher" has been proved at Christmas time for several years, when Mrs. Laird would receive a dozen red roses from her former pup.M. Now Jimmy is Sergeant Jimmy Spencer, on duty in the Solomon Islands. So the Laird family hurst into tears this Christmas morning when Mrs. Laird's dozen red Christmas roses arrived from Jimmy, just the same. Jimmy, by the way, must share wtth his twin brother, Lieutenant John Spencer, now in Australia a unique army record: The boys (they are in their early 20's) are the sons of a Civil War Colonel. Their father was the late Colonel Robert H. Spencer of Algona. He died, at the age of 89, in 1930. Colonel Spencer became the father of; two sets of twin sons (Jimmy and John have older '.twin brothers) after he was 75 years of age. I can't -'magine that we have many soldiers or sailors in this war whose fathers fought in ithe (Civil War 80 years ago.,—t)o you know of any others? Mrs. Laird is remembered here as Dorothy Taylor. She Is married to R. J. (Skin) Ladrd, son of Mrs. Ella La'.rd. He is State Adjutant of the American Legion. The twins' mother, Mrs. Emily Spencer, lives on McGregor street in the Spencer home. The older twins mentioned in the column are Bill and Bob, both of whom are married and living on the west coast. They are engaged '.IT defense work. Knights of Columbus Plan Joint Meeting A special guest at the regular meeting of the local council of Knights of Columbus Tuesday night was Ray P. Conley, Des Moines, secretary of the state group. Also v:«itoT» from Emmetfcburg were District Deputy J. B. McEvoy, Bernard Elbert and T. J. Cullen. The council was addressed by Mr. Conley and Mr. McEvoy. Grand Knight Bud Zender appointed a committee to nominate a secretary to replace Jess Reynolds, who recently joined the armed forces. It was arranged to send to members of the order serving overseas two cartons of cigarettes. Twenty-three of the council's younger members are serving with' Uncle Sam. The next meetrng, Tuesday, January 26, will be held at Academy hall at which time following the business session the wives, mothers and sweethearts of the council members will be guests at bridge, dancing and lunch. The committee in charge is Gene Hood, Joe Lynch, Dr. WMikel and Chris Reese.

Corporal Faber hails from Kanawha, Iowa, and very recently married Adra Yeoman of Algona. The article In the Tribune went on to say that Corp. Faber checks the personal equipment of new soldiers inducted at Camp Dodge and each outlay includes 56 individual articles ranging from tooth brushes to overcoats. Another checker, Corp. M. J. Kenneally of Dubuque had previously made quite a showing until Faber came along. Kenneally had run 87 men through the line in one hour checking 56 articles for each man. iFaber, once into the swing of it, made 'em forget Kenneally's record. He checked the equipment of one man in 12 seconds, first making certain that each of the 56 articles was in the pack, then calling off each article ( to the officer in charge. Then, the Tribune states, Faber went into action on a big scale. He checked the equipment of 120 men in one hour and that involves the counting of 6,720 pieces of equipment. Hemp....
