TALE OF TWO FIVE DOLLAR BILLS AND A MAID OF ALGONA Even the most Kond-imtnr- ed person has n "bad luck" day once in uwliile, and Lulu lliienhold, the jolly K irl down at the Grecnliou.sas, had hor's Tuesday. Lulu's father hud given her two five dollar bills and two halves, and told her to go demit and pay tlie express bill. When she got into the car, she tilanuncd the door too hard, breaking a window glass "into n million pieces." Luckily, sho escaped Injury except, a cut forefinger on the left hand. But that wasn't all, for after she got to the express office she found that the two "fives" were gone and that all she had with her was two "halves." Followed a frenzied search all of the way home. The money wasn't in her purse, it wasn't in the car, It wasn't at the office, It wasn't at the house. Finally she found the darned hills, one flirting with the flying leaves on the paving, the other In peaceful repose under an evergreen tree. Lulu explains, "It must have hecn the wind."

That the American Legion has developed into the most stabilizing 'actor in American life today, was the assertion oE James I. Dolliver, Fort Dodge attorney, past state commander, speaker at the annual Armisitice day banfluet ierved to 64 Kossuth World war •eterans by Hagg Post Auxiliary women Friday night. The Legion is also the most cosmopolitan organization in Amerca, declared Mr. Dolliver, in that it includes members of every profession, occupation, social stratum, and political party. Mr. Dolliver, remarking that he 'elt that Legionnaires were entitled to make merry on Armis;ice day, told a story about an Blderly lady who asked a policeman in Miami to stop the Legionnaires who were celebrating IE rational convention there. The po- iceman answered, "Lady, a man n Germany who tried to stop those men 15 years ago is now sawing ivood in Holland!" Legion Helps Veterans. The first task of the Legion af- ;er organization was to help vet- srans back to normal life. Rehab- litation of disabled veterans, and relief of their distressed dependents, is still a large part of the Legion and Auxiliary programs. Another important part of the program, which Mr. Dolliver stressed, .is fostering high ideals born of loyalty to the country and expressed through' patriotic service to community, state, and nation. The Legion owes it to the next generation to preserve for them the high,ideals of liberty and freedom which this country represents, the speaker said. The Boys' State department of the Legion this year, deparment of the Legion this year, is an outstanding example of the Legion's efforts to meet the obligation, and already it is generally acknowledged to be one of the finest achievements in Americanism 'originated in recent years. Junior baseball, now reaching 500,000 boys, and .300 Boy Scout troups sponsored by Legion posts to instill in the next generation the principles of Americanism are other examples. Retiring Commander Speaks. Doctor Nugent, retiring local commander, in introductory remarks, expressed appreciation of the co-operation, of members of the Post had given him during his term. :He.also urged ever man eligible to membership in the Legion to take advantage of the opportunity to serve the organization and through it the community, the state, and the nation. Legionnaire Marshall Brown, of Cedar Rapids, was introduced. Among men answering roll call of past commanders of Hagg Post were: L. E, Linnan, 1923; A. E. Kresensky, 1926; M. G. Norton, 1927; W. H. Godden, 1928; M. H. Palkenhainer, 1929; H. M, Smith, 1931;-and G. D. Brundage, 1933; M- J- Streit, 1934; J. L. Momyer, 1935; D. C, Hutchison, 1936.

U. Pollard, of Tecumseh, Neb., was chosen as new superintendent of the city light and water plant by the city council in a special meeting Tuesday eyeaing. Mr. Pollard had been under consideration with two or three other candidates for some weeks, and his selection was approved by the entire council. Two members of the council made a special visit to the towns of the major candidates, and found on investigation that both were of equal standing in their home communities. Mr. Pollard was well liked and his ability as city superintendent praised at Tecumseh. Tecnmseh Regrets Loss. Businessmen were unanimous in expressing regret that he had decided to leave the town, where he had been superintendent for seven years, and recommendations were 100 per cent favorable. Mr. Pollard some time ago decided to leave Nebraska territory because of inroads by high-line companies on the municipal plants. Cheap power from dams and huge plants threatened the existence of small home-controlled plants, and Mr. Pollard did not desire to become a mere cog in a.huge organization, enforcing the dictates of superiors at a distance from his base of operation. Mr. Pollard has had 20 years experience in city electrical and water departments and in general supervision of city's affairs. He is about, 39 years old, is married, and the Pollards have three children. New Superintendent Experienced. It is not known just--when he will come to Algona,-.but•>he expected to wind up his job at Ta- cumseh between the 1st and 15th of December and come directly to Algona to take up his duties here. Since the sudden death of J W Kelly October 1 the city's affairs have been handled by members of the council, Mayor Specht, and the city force generally, in an efficient manner. It is a tribute to the memory of Mr. Kelly that the organization he had built up during the many years he was superintendent, carried on the work without a hitch. Wise, forehanded purchases of supplies kept the city force supplied with necessities during the period when other conditions might have^ caused distress.
