Planned Tuesday evening by a half dozen Sunday school representatives, the word was passed around the following day, and 67 people got together at Interlaken for dinner and recreation. iRoller skating, swimming, boating, and other amusements furnished thrills for young and old. Incidentally the Good Hope 'Sunday school has found this resort quiet, clean, and a good place to go for gatherings. Many Attend World's Fair- There are few days this summer when the Century of Progress is without a representative from Good Hope or Union township. Wil- .•liam iDodds, who went with Arnold Hintz, g'ot back one day last week. There this week are Mr. and 'Mrs. A. R. Cruikshank and Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Larson, the latter couple of Plum Creek. Mrs. Larson was formerly Hazel Mitchell. Julia Bourne is regularly employed in a booth representing the allied packing interests. Other Good Hopers are talking of making the trip. Church Services Are Resumed— Following a vacation period at Good Hope in which there have been no church activities, services will be resumed at the usual hours next Sunday, and communicants should find joyous occasion in communion with neighbors and ac- Radio Stars at State Fair [Hampton -Chronicle.] The Iowa State college made another stroke of good business when It secured the services of Geo. W. Godfrey, Algona, as assistant to President R. M. Hughes. By this appointment, the college will at once gain tremendously in the confidence of the farmers, because Mr. Godfrey is a real farmer. We doubt if there is a man in the state who has better "combination" qualities in this regard. Mr. Godfrey is not only well educated by high school and college but hcis personally operated his farm near Algona. «e is a ready speaker and can easily get his ideas across to the people in an understanding way. He has been ! member of the state board of edu cation, and. always has been actlvi in civic and political affairs in hia home county. Mr. Godfrey is read ily conceded to be a man of th'i people. While Mr. Godfrey is appointee as assistant to the State colleg president, his work will largely be similar to that of Dean C. F. Curtis, who was at the head of the agricultural department in the college for many years, and it Is believed that Mr. Godfrey will eventually take the place held so long •by Mr. Curtis, and later will be given the official title. . ., Prepare For Race Classics WHY NO* OWH A HOME OR FIX UP THE OLP OHEl The Algona Building and :Loan> Association has ample funds to a«f*- vance at a very Ipw rate of Interest for the purpose of building, ro-- modeling and refinancing desirable first mortgage loans on Algonw property.

Also, Iowa's first night racing will be staged on the State Fair track every night from August 25 through August 81'. AUDITOR'S ASSIGNMENT RECORD Four Corners E. M. Huntington, Norfolk, Neb., was a dinner guest at 'Leslie Walk- County Auditor Butler recently received 5x8 printed cards on which to note abstracts of real estate mortgage assignments as required by a new law recently printed in the Courthouse Reporter. The significant thing in connec- ;ion with his entries is that he is to look up and insert the taxing district in which the property is situated. Presumably he' Is then to see that the owner of the mortgage is assessed and taxed. It will be interesting to see how this scheme works out. • It raises an old question, to-wit: Ought the owner of the mortgage to be taxed and then the owner of the land taxed Just as if there were no mortgage? ' This is double taxation. Most people would be apt to hole offhand that the mortgage holde ought to be taxed. and the mortgagor relieved of that much of his assessment on the land. But the rouble there would be that the public revenues would suffer, for ;he moneys and credits tax rate is :nflriitesimal compared With the real estate tax .rate. to | Friday by news of the pickness of his mother, Mrs. ihlpull, who suffered ' a i she and her husband baring to leave for the ilt.
