The Upper Des Moines-Bepublican, March 11, 1931 *• zz: PASSED VETERAN'S BILL OVER VETO Many Kossuth Co. World War Veterans Will be Aided by Measure. ona Hi Lights VOL. I ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, MARCH II. 1931 No. 16 "It takes Interested readers as well as Kalcnted writers to make a good paper." HOOVER SAYS HELP NEEDY VETS FIRST. Average Loan of $500 Available nl Four and One-Half Per Cent Interest. Loans Already Started. A bill introduced and passed by congress to make it possible for veterans of the World War to borrow one-half of the face value of their compensation certificates at four and one-half per cent interest was vetoed by President Hoover on the grounds that it •would be detrimental to the nation as well as the veterans was passed by congress by a big vote over his veto and the law went into effect immediately. After congress overrode the veto President Hoover asked that the needy veterans be helped first, and five minutes after the senate had passed the bill, the first check to a veteran had been issued. There are 3,400,000 veterans of this war holding certificates and a tremendous sum will be needed if all ask for loans. How to Proceed. Here is what a veteran has to do to borrow half the face value of his ad- Justed compensation certificate: If he has to obtain a loan he may present In person, or mail to one of the 54 regional offices the record of it and the application for a loan. The regional office available to Iowa is located at Des Moines. From then on the loan rests with the Veterans' bureau. The certificates are not due until 1945. Only certificates in force two years or more may be borrowed on under the present ruling. Those who have received no loan on then- certificate must mail to the office or present in person this fact along with discharge papers and the certificates. Notes and necessary papers may be secured from the regional office or the veterans' organization. MEDITATION. Why do we po to school? Why have wo been poinp to school for the last year? Is it because we forced to po or because we wish to pain nior? knowledge? Does everything we learn in school come from books? Soon we will be seniors. Can we look back mid say that we have done our best by the the school and the other students? Have we. together with our progress in learning progressed in the spirit of the school, in sportsmanship, in loyalty to whatever we have attempted? When we are downcast and the "world seems upside down: don't, waste your time In fretting, but drive away that frown. Since life is oft perplexing; 'tis much the wiser plan to bear all trials bravely and smile whenever you can." May we ever be reminded of Longfellow's poem: "Let us then be up and doing With a heart for any fate; Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wnit." MORE AND MORE WORK. Recently, Miss Plaehn announced to her civics classes that she expected thirty cents from every member to invest in objective tests. Of course everyone pleaded hard times, but the money was finally collected and the tests were sent for. Last Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, the classes took the first three one a day, of course and from reports they were a trine hard. But then, we hope the pupils will not-get down-hearted and will stick to the old adage, "Nothing good is accomplished without labor." Hays Recovering from Auto Crash.

We hope that the school will stand back of the team and Algona will win. Good luck to the team. Absolutely No Hurry About It. One chilly evening in the early part of March the sheriff entered the county jail and addressed the colored person, who occupied the strongest cell. "Gabe, you know that under the law it is my duty to take you out of here tomorrow and hang you. So I've come to tell you that I want to make your last hours as easy as possible. For your last breakfast you may have anything to eat that you wish. What would you like?" The condemned man thought for a minute, then answered, "Mr. Luskin, I believe I'd like to have a nice watermelon." "But watermelons won't be ripe for four or five months yet," protested the sheriff. "Well, sir" said. Gabe, "I kin wait." Corridor Clippings, Aleona has two new pupils enrolled.

Are you growing or are you shrinking? If you have difficulty in deciding why not take a yard stick and measure? You can do it by asking yourself these questions. How much more do you know today than you did a year ago? Are you doing more and better work than you have been doing? Is your mind keener, quicker and docs it function more efficiently? How much kinder and more helpful are you to others than you were in the past? How many more friends do you have now than you had one year ago? These are only a few of the questions that you should ask yourself, but if you can answer them satisfactorily, you should be very Imppy. —Leona Stewart. Inter Class Basket Bull. The annual basket ball tournament between the freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors will take place this week. The present juniors who took a close defeat at the hands of the present seniors are determined to show them how to play basket ball. The freshmen have their minds set on a good running and undoubtedly will show the upper classmen some classy basket ball. A grade tournament started last Saturday and will continue into this week. The grade teams consist of pupils from city hall, third ward and the eighth grade. solved. That the horse and buggy is more desirable method of locomotion than the automobile; Resolved, That we should have a four day school week; Resolved, That students should be allowed to sleep in the assembly; Resolved, That the students of A. H. S. should adopt the policy of Dutch treat on dates. Miss Kriekenbaum's junior class in typing is through with speed tests for a time. The students mode so many errors that accuracy drills are used instead. A contest is being held to see who will make the least errors each week. Also, a contest is being held to see who gets the most assignments in on the date due. A new system of two dismissals has been started by Miss Coate in an effort to reduce the noise in the halls after school. If a student wishes to stay to see a teacher he must sign his name on a paper on the platform in the assembly. The first dismissal is at four o'clock and the second at four-twenty. The new system is working very satisfactorily. Miss Miller's geometry students have been making geometric figures for their project work. Every year the pupils make these original designs using only the compasses and ruler. Miss Miller is very much pleased with the designs up to this time. Among the designs thus far are portraits, flowers and baskets of flowers, silhouettes and some very effective designs have been made with circles of all sizes. Miss Duhigg's junior English classes are beginning a detailed study of the drama. Several boys have been appointed to select a play and present it before the class. The boys are John Horgreaves, Carl Medin, Bob Cliff, Peter Chubb, Elbe Van Dorstan, Craig Smith, Lyle Runchey, and TJrnald Lund. Prizes may be given for the best play. The seniors have been working on the senior magazine. The staff has been appointed. In order for the seniors to put this across they must have everyone in the high school back of them. Let everyone buy a magazine for who knows, may be some day the freshmen will be seniors and want the support of the-high school. Report cards were given out Thursday. Many pupils went home with cheerful faces, while others didn't want to go home. The school had four star pupils this six weeks, one senior, two sophomores, and one freshman. The poor juniors lost out completely but don't worry they'll come back again. A Free Ride. A short time ago one of the senior boys who was playing with a pair of beads broke the string and the beads went flying all over the floor. Thinking it best to pick them up he proceeded to do so. In picking them up he got down on his knees and began working with might and main. After he had worked for about two minutes, John Hargreaves came down the aisle and in order to get by he had to throw his leg over the senior. As he did so the senior at that moment had finished picking up the beads and raised up with John on his back. He immediately lowered himself to let John off. Everything ended nicely even if John did not get a very long ride. Algona Cagers End Season. The Algona basket ball team ended then- season last Saturday night at Plover in a sectional tournament. The boys went into the finals of the class A section. They gave a very good account of themselves by defeating Graettinger in the first round by a score of 24 to 13, and Laurens 16 to 13 in the second round. In the finals of class A, Holfe displaying some good basketball defeated the hard fighting locals by a score of 27 to 20. The season as a whole has been quite successful despite the loss by ineligi- hilities. The year's schedule of 23 games was probably one of the longest basket ball seasons Algona has ever had.

Miss Sage is the teacher and the school is located in Union township. The school management class is studying art pictures this week. The new decorations have been put up hi Miss Wilson's room. The calendar is for those who "wear the green," the blackboard border for the playful, the window decorations for the lovers of flowers and the sand table for those who prefer country life in old Erin. The normal training club met Tuesday hi Miss Wilson's room. The meeting was called to order by the new president, Ardeen Devine. Roll call was answered by quotations from Longfellow, Lincoln and Washington. The first port of the program was under the direction of Hazel Casler. Some ol Longfellow's poems, such as "The Arrow and the Song," "Hiawatha," and "The Courtship of Miles Standish" were presented hi tableaux. "The Bell of Atri" was,, then dramatized. Kathryn Smith made a fine looking horse. Although she was old and lame she seeme dto enjoy life as well as her audience. A debate: "Resolved That Lincoln was a better American than Washington," was given. The affirmative side, upheld by Thelma Guy and Fredericka Gerris won the decision over the negative, upheld by Roberta Skllling and. Edna Jordan. Alva Benson acted as judge. Perhaps the desire not to be classed as a negro and made a slave just because of a thick upper lip influenced the judge to decide for the affirmative. Anyway, the audience enjoyed the debate. The methods class is studying the ways of teach geography. Grade News. The city hall reports the following people oil the honor roll: Theresa Trager, Maxine Coldwell, Barbara Haggard.

Old Mother Tongue gave a party and all the children brought then- worst mistakes In English to her and she gave them the correct form, and burned the incorrect.

Several farmers in the vicinity and some who were driving by assisted him right the car, among them being Lloyd Walkner.
