Too little recognition has been given in the past to the remarkable results achieved by Algona in the state academic contest held every May by the State University of Iowa. In the last two successive years Algona students have ranked third out of forty or fifty thousand students. This Is'a fine record for the local school to make because In each case it has been overtopped only by college towns. The last year Ames (Iowa State) won first; Mt. Vernon (Cornell), second and Algona third. Out of the three leading schools Algona won first In World History and General Science { second in Ninth Connective English; Tenth Connective English; Algebra, Geometry, English Literature and Physics. In the final contest at Iowa City last June Fernley Nolte won first place in a class of sixty-eight in General Science; Johanna Plene ranked sixteenth out of a class of sixty-five in Ninth Connective English; Craig Smith in Geometry, ranked seventeenth out of a class of seventy-three; and Phyllis Parsons ranked eighteenth in Tenth Connective English out of a class of sixty-four. This is, indeed, a fine record to make for a town of this size. All of the pupils and teachers are to be congratulated, especially Fernley Nolte who won first place at Iowa City and Miss Messer and Miss Babcock who brought their classes through with firsts. Mr. Overmyer is well satisfied POLICE ITEMS. Agitation is being made by the faculty for a clock which strikes the hours to awake the sleeping pupils in time to get to class.
