By Rachel Becker. "Eat and be merry" was the motto of 200 4-H boys and girls, eaders, and parents Monday even- ng as they gathered for the annual 4-H banquet at the Lone Rock high school gymnasmm. The first event was a "grand march", in which the 'boys and iris marched in couples to seven long tables beautifully decorated .11 the 4-H colors which bore "ear- corn" candle-holders and platters of colorful vegetables for centerpieces. A 'Song of Grace,' with Betty Jean Schwartz, Fenton, at the .piano, was followed by geMacquaint- ed songs, everyone taking part. The Legion Auxiliary women at Lone Rook prepared the meal, and during the serving Lloyd Bartlett, Titonka theaterman, took moving pictures of the' group at the tables. Patrolman Speaker. Patricia Matern, Cresco, county 4-H girls president, extended greetings to the Four-H members and guests, and this was followed by a talk by Patrolman Hutchins, of the Fort Dodge highway division. Among other things the speaker said that we have about a million oar-operators in the state f Iowa, but that 99 fewer persons ere killed in auto accidents this ear than last. Mr. Hutchins show- d> a movie reel entitled, Stop, ook, and Live. Six 4-H girls in. attractive colo- ial costume danced the Gavotte, ne of the folk -games ' for this ear's study.

Any woman should be able to cook, and cook well, after she has tried the favorite recipes of some of the best cooks in Algona. These recipes have been compiled into one book, published by the Methodist W. H. M. C. The books are on'sale at only 50c apiece. Orders are to be placed with Mrs. S. W. Mey- ?r, who had charge of the eriterprice. This attractive book has 425 tested recipes on breads, cakes, Crostings, cookies, candies, desserts, puddings, pies, vegetables, .salads, dressings, meats, pickles, jams, and relishes—everything to tickle the family pahte. It has a bright red cover for the front and a blue one for the back. The recipes are printed on cardboard, punched and bound with rings. Being a loose-leaf book, it lets new sheets of recipes be added from time to time. A large envelope has been included inside of the back cover to hold clippings, and there are blank pages on which to write favorite recipes.. A table of weights and measures was not forgotton, to say nothing of useful "Household Hints." Here's just one on cooking potatoes that some new bride may find useful: "Old potatoes should be put on to 'cook in cold water; new potatoes, in boiling water." For an unusual "Recipe for a husband," turn to a reprint In this week's Hodgepodge. A note from the women of the church says: "We especially wish to extend thanks to Al?ona business men and women who by liberal advertising have made this book financially possible." • ILLOONSTO IE RELEASED AFTERNOON nta, in Person, to ive Candy to the Children, Uoons containing, Use tickets win at 3 o'clock; next coins and be re- week «day as a,.feature of Santa in Algona. 3 moving pictures wili be pro- for the children, the shows at 11 a . m, and continued P. m, Special features of • to the children are provld- several shows will be run the period so that all can ea for, Algona children will .admitted to a,ny of the till after 4 p. m,, when one show will be run for their [«, thus giving- the larger Two New Business Places Open in Algona 9 s 'Suburb 9 the day-to ylsltlng chll- which Part Two new additions to suburban Algona, the Colwell Bros, sale pavilion, and the Anderson oil station and lunch room, will be opened north of Algona in the next few days.
