The Upper Des Moines-Republican, November 19,1930 SCHOOL MASTERS HELDBANQUET Met at Lone Rock School Every Superintendent of Ind. Diste. Present. DISCUSSED ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION. All But Two Schools Entered Jnnlor High School Declamatory Contest Held Soon. North Kossuth Record: The November meeting of the Kossuth county schoolmasters' club was held last Saturday evening Mr. and Mrs. Orabau attended this meeting, which was held In the Lone Rock school. After a fine banquet the business meeting was held. Every superintendent of the independent schools of the county and also County Superintendent Wm. Shirley was present. The boy's basket ball tournament of this county will be held at Ledyard and the girls' tournament will be held at Lone Rock. Heretofore, Algona being the only class A high school In the county, has been excluded from participating ,tn our county basketball and declamatory contests. It developed at the meeting that Swea City Is now a class A school (which means an enrollment of one hundred or more) and class A schools will now be admitted to all contests. For the past few years Swea City has been very strong is basket ball and Algona in declamatory work. At the meeting some pretty hot discussion arose as to the conduct of the Iowa High School Athletic association. It seems that at present there are only three men on the executive board and that often one or two dictate the policy for all the high school athletics in Iowa. It was stated also that for years these few men have come from one corner of the state. The Kossuth Schoolmasters' club went on record as favoring more men on this board and for them to come from each of several more districts within the state. All the schools but Bancroft and Seneca entered the junior high school declamatory contest. If present plans materialize two contests will be held in the north half of the county as was done last year. One of these will be held at Grant township and one at Lakota. So in each class each school will have two contestants, one at home in our case and one at Grant. Our local printers who are doing thesis work for Mr. Grabau have just completed 800 tests In spelling for him Schools which so far have agreed to give the tests .for him are Ledyard Swea City, Seneca, Tltonka, Hurt Wesley, Grant township, LuVeirne Lone Rock, Bancroft and Algona. The tests are the multiple-choice type tests In spelling. The problem is to determine which are most reliable, < the jd|c- itation type of "test "or the ""multiple- choice type. These tests will be given to many eighth grades. The smallest eighth grade class around here is al Wesley with four, and the largest in Algona with fifty-two.

SAYS BRIGHTER TIMESARE AHEAD Iowa Farmers Are in No Worse Condition Than People in Cities. DOES NOT BELIEVE TROUBLES ALL OVER. Chain Farming Not Adapted to towa. Urges Patronage of Rome Industries. Creston, Iowa, November 13.—An op- tlmstie picture of the future of agriculture was painted last night by Mark G. Thornburg, state secretary of agriculture, In an address to a gathering of business men and farmers "I cannot help but feel that we have brighter times ahead," Thornburg said, "as the general price of farm lands Is becoming more stable and we can undoubtedly expect business condition throughout the county to improve thereby helping to Improve the pric of agricultural products. "I do not believe, however, that ou troubles are all over. Land is worth less than it was In 1917. Despite this Iowa farmers are apparently In m worse condition than we find the ma Jority of people in large cities. Wi have sufficient to eat and arc no confronted with bread lines that are found hi some of the commercial centers." Discussing chain farming, Thornburg said he believed that type Is not adapted to Iowa, but foresaw a move toward larger farms and more machine operation. He expressed a hope that farms as a class will remain on a family unit basis, declaring that ownership is the essential foundation of our American citizenship." "Even If some of the farms are held by large companies in the future,' 'he said, "it may be a good thing for agriculture to have financial interests holding tracts of land and sharing as a common stock owner in the profits and losses of farming." Thornburg urged merchants to try to make their prices respond quickly to our •H-J Many Things at Half Price. Stop and Shop. Look! i Men's Suits All New^ All Sizes Includes Hart Schaffner & Marx lower wholesale prices on agriculture products. In this way, he explained, farmers can get the benefit of the Increased consumption which lower prices would afford. Telling business men that they urge the patronage of home industries, he asked them to patronize their farmers for home dairy products. He spoke of the value of cooperation, but warned that cooperative methods "will not bring magical prosperity." sr Kraft-Misbach Company Bostonian Shoes—Two Pairs for the Price of One.
