Mr. Gilchrist, recalling his boyhood days in Algona, when his father was head of a normal school here 50 years ago, declared that he thought one Institution of the past which was of distinct advantage to us was the woodshed where a boy met justice! Discussing affairs of the nation, he pleaded that people everywhere should forgive and forget, lest another conflict worse than.,, the world war break out. Because of his interest; in war .veterans, Mr. Gilchrist- sees what thi 'last war cost in the uealtii and those who fought, and he that is only reasonable to brigades, to the end the total of 35,000 children hurt in Iowa bicycle accidents last year may be greatly reduced for the coming year.

Bruce Gates Talks Tuesday Night for Special of Rotary Bruce Gates, of the Gates business college at Waterloo was the speaker before the Algona Rotary club at a meeting Tuesday evening at the Algona hotel. He had beea invited to speak here on the purposes and aims of Rotary, and the talk was particularly for the benefit, of new members.

TEN MINUTES WOULD PERMIT CARS TO LOAD Chamber Sees More Zones as Parking Necessity. Additional loading zones to permit farmers to load merchandise on Algona's State street were discussed at the Chamber of Commerce meeting Monday night, and the club voted to request the city council to establish two additional spaces in two of Algona's business blocks as a trial. The present loading zones at the corners on the side -streets have been working very satisfactorily, and permit loading stays of ten minutes. For normal traffic these are satisfactory, but on Saturdays more are needed. t Other Zones Planned. If the two additional loading zones are established in the business district by the council, and if they work out satisfactorily, two additional zones for each block not so supplied will- be requested. The Chamber of Commerce and the council are working together to make shopping as easy and as pleasant as possible in Algona. II is believed the two additional loading zones per block would give an open space for a car at almost any time long enough for the driver to collect purchases and load up. At the same time these two 'zones would not take much area from the State street parking. More Lights Discussed. The drive to keep Algona business cars off the business streets is being continued, though conditions are now much better than at any time previously. Cars of businessmen and clerks are now parked a block or more away from the bus-. mess section thua leaving this room for farm cars. Also discussed was the advisability of putting in additional lights on the two streets paralleling State for use on Saturday eventngf when these streets are janunei with parked cars.

GILCHRIST HEALTH WAS NEVER BETTER After his talk Tuesday before he county woman's federation, Congressman Gilchrist remained lere for the night, leaving yesterday morning for an appointment at Garner. •Mr. ,Gilchrist has a demosratic opponent, one Eveland, a farmer lear Fort Dodge who claims to be a 100 per cent AAA supporter; but he gentleman, it is understood, is laving great difficulty to find any hing in Mr. Gilchrist's agricultural record to attack. In fact about the only jriticism of Mr, GilchriBt that has been heard in the last six years has come from diehard republicans who felt that he favored the New Deal too much. His reelection next month is generally expected. Longtime frieads of Mr. Gll Christ who had not seen him recently have been astonished, on meeting him again,' to find him looking to be in perfect heatlh. At 70 he looks not more than 60.
