Good-sized audiences attended presentation of the high school senor class play, Mrs. Temple's Tele- jram, Monday and Tuesday even- ngs in the high school auditorium. The plot of the p'lay centered around Mr. Temple, who was trying to explain absence from home -all night to his wife. He knew she wouldn't 'believe the truth, which was that he had been caught in a jammed ferris wheel, so he made up a story. Thereby he aroused many amusing complications, and every lie brought more, till in the end confessions all around excused him. The part of Mrs. Temple was played by Adris Anderson; Jack Temple, Dick Cowan; Frank Fuller, James Bishop; Captain S'harpe, Roland Larson; Wigson, Everett Bowman; John Brown, Willard Zeigler; Mrs. Fuller, Mildred Wright; Mrs. Brown, Margaret Vigars; and Dorothy, Ruth Robinson.

Between acts II and III the following pupils took part in a Captain Jinks dance; Lillian Bellinger, Marguerite Dalziel, Bernice Dearchs, Helen Goeders, Esthe Lavrenz, Ida Peterson, and Vivian Stephenson. The play was directed Ijy Mrs. D H. Goeders, with Miss Morris a director of dances, Miss Miller as sisting -with music, and Miss Ren aud with costumes. • •— ; Child In Peculiar Accident.

After this action the meeting adjourned till 1:16. Dinner was served by the Baptist Aid at the Baptist church. Afternoon Session Held. The Rev. Mr. Baddeley, *Lu Verne Methodist pastor, opened the / afternoon session with prayer. This session was for the purpose of organizing the county for the elec- I tlon. It was now that a motion was made and carried to divide the county into 12 sub-districts, with a general 'chairm'an for each, these chairmen to act as an advisory council to iMr. Windell. Mr. Windell said: ''Dry organization is going lo be a matter of getting the voters out, not a problem of converting them. Most people have made up their minds how they will vote by now." On motion the chairman was directed to prepare circuits of speakers for district meetings throughout the county. Muhleiiinn to Fight. The Rev. W. G. Muhleman, Algona district Methodist superintendent, spoke on the "Responsibility of the Church Towards This Movement." He opened by saying, "I have my doubts that anyone questions the place of the church in this fight we are in." He added: 'Make a study of the Bible; if you do so, you will find yourself in a position where we can forcibly and freely teach temperance. (i "I, for one," said Mr. Muhleman, want to use my opportunities as a preacher to present the moral side of this subject to my people". I believe that if we do this, and if we are united, there need be no trouble in putting this campaign Mr. Muhleman closed 'by saying: I am sorry we must fight battles over again that we fought years ago; but if we must, well and good I am ready." Woman's Chairman Speaks. Mrs. J. H. Warburton, Lakota, •y county woman's chairman, spoke briefly to urge women to vote. She said women ought to "??!<?, this , issu e their own respon- srtnlity and do their share. She quoted Ida B. Wise Smith as saying, Iowa's -heart is true; but only votes will count." Mrs. Warburton closed by saying, "We may be dry but unless we go to the polls and say so we shall not get anywhere." Mr. Hulse said the thing that will defeat the drys, if they are ±M£ dlMe , i : en ? e - Getting the SCHOOL WORK ON DISPLAYTOMORROW Supt.
