Harvest Church Service The Harvest Town to Country service at Good Hope Sunday was an exceedingly successful and profitable one for those participating. An audience which filled the auditorium of the church listened to nn informative and fitting talk by Supt. of Schools Otto B, Laing Algona, who spoke on the general topic of the mutual Interests of town and country people. A Thanksgiving reading by Hazel Jenklnson and special music add' I'd to the Interest of the service. The only disappointment is that it was a "Town to Country" service in name only. Seems like it should have been an occasion of special interest to folks with whom our country people mingle every day In a business wayV But of course their own religious services would have had to be neglected which would have been too much to expect. Oh, well! Guess we were at fault for not giving- a more special Invitation to the "Commercial club" and other organized town Interests. But watch ua next year.
