The letter said: "The trip Is certainly turning out to be everything you said it. would be. We were on the train from Friday at 11 p. m., till Monday at 8 n. m.—quite a long ride, but it wasn't bad at all. Had a coincidence in meeting Tom Dc/ellar, who said he is a brother of Edw. DeZellar, and Tom was dining steward of our train (The Northern Pacific Limited) from Chicago to Seattle. "This morning when we got to Seattle we went on a tour to Paradise, IVasli., us near to Mf. Kainicr as wo conld get. This took US about 90 miles from Seattle. I just don't know how to describe the scenery. The drive all the way was just bean- tifnl with tall pine trees, winding roads, deep valleys, pretty waterfalls, etc. "Paradise is very high and is UH near Mt. Rainier as you can get by bus, so we had a good view of the mountain, with snow still on the peaks, making a truly wonderful sight. "We had a big dinner at Paradise. We are staying at the Franklin hotel tonight (Monday) and tomorrow, and these rooms and baths arc going to look mighty good to us tonight, for we arc all tired and dirty after u big day. Tomorrow (Tuesday) we take a boat trip to British Columbia. "Oh, yes, and talk about eating—they certainly do serve wonderful food, and I haven't eaten so much for a long time." Today Marcella is touring San Pranci.sco, after visiting Portland yesterday, and tomorrow she is scheduled to go down the California coast to Los Angeles, thence later to San Diego, Old Mexico, across, the southern part of the country to Ifew Orleans, to Chicago, and thence home.

The two criminal cases scheduled for trial are charges of assault with intent to commit rape brought against Melvin Schroder, and a charge of driving while intoxicated brought against J. B.

In a letter, ..Edward Nell, executive secretary of Quill and Scroll, says the judges of this year's service, under auspices of the Medill School of Journalism, Chicago, recognized the "Ripples" as an outstanding achievement and bestowed on it an International first- place award. Mr. Nell commented most favorably on. the achievements of last year's staff. News writing, copyreading, and editing scored highest in excellence. Other departments which rated ' "exceptional excellence' were editorial, news coverage features, sports writing, and the make-up. Since the "Ripples" . first ap peared in'printed form a year ago it is justly proud of this distinct tion, and to the present staff i is both gratifying and encouraging. To the class of '38, which firs launched forth the Ripples.in its printed form, it will be a pleasan memory. Mary Godden, '38, has been high ly commended for generous effort pertinent to the present, success o the publication.

The annual tour day dinner of the Bancroft CCC camp, held at the Congregational church yesterday noon, was attended by a senator, ex-senator, congressman, 12 members of the Ames state college faculty, and other notables, •who spoke briefly during an after- dinner program. Of particular interest ie the fact hat Senator Guy M. Gillette, of iherokee, and Senator L. J. Dicknson, of Algona, sat across the able from each other, and during he dinner and talks had more han a little fun joshing each oth- ir about their respective candida- ies. ;,, Congressman Gilchrist Speaks. Congressman F. C. Gilchrist, of Laurens, only a seat away, also came! in for some of the fun. Mr. Gilchrist was called upon to speak "irst and he said mid-westerners rad been asleep for years and were now only beginning to wake up to ;onditions. For years farmers in ;he far west had obtained irrigation by demanding it from the government. In the midwest the land was drained by the farmers' own money. Some months ago a proposal was made to do away with, drainage camps, though retaining - irrigation camps, and Mr. OFFICERS ARE CHOSEN FOR 3 H,S, CLASSES \ Freshmen are Not to Elect Till Better Acquainted. .

Kammemier, and Dr. Charles K, McCarthy, functioning: heads of the organization, in charge. Results of last year's sales were discussed, and plans for increasing;! this year's sale were laid. A movie on hospitalization of a tubercular mother was impressive. Early care made possible by T. B. seal funds saved this mother for her family. Money collected in Kossuth from seal sales in 1937 was partly used to defray the expenses of a nurse .Gilchrist recalled the fight he and a group of mid-western congressmen and senators waged to keep the drainage camps.

Also Gillette and "Dick." ^* 'Mr. Gilchrist was followed by Senator Gillette and Senator Dickinson, who both spoke briefly, approving drainage projects, and each having political fun at the expense of the other. George F. Boyd, assistant chief of the bureau of agricultural engineering at Washington, D. C., said the need of drainage had been rather forcibly impressed upon him by his trip to Algona. He had left Washington the preceding morntng at 4; 30 a. m., intending to be in Algona at 6 a. m. yesterday. However his train was delayed five hours by high water, and as he rode along he could see field after field of corn with standing water. Early Drainage Recalled. D. L. Leffert, of Algona, one of the first drainage engineers in the county, told a few of the experiences in early days of some 80 years ago. He cited surveyor's records of 1854 in which the description of the land was, "Black soil, wet; will never be fit for cultivation." John G. Button, of Milwaukee, Wis., engineer in charge of the district office for four states, spoke briefly, praising the work of the Bancroft and Clarion camps. Bancroft had the first camp established, and the first donated article in the whole U. S. was a drag line in Kossuth. Mr. Sutton said the main problem for the future is cleaning main ditches and keeping them open; Visitors are Introduced, Among others introduced were George Godfrey and the Ames delegation, members of the boards of supervisors of Wright, Winnebago, Palo Alto, Hamilton and Kossuth counties, E.
