The Upper Des Moines-Republican, March 18, 1931 }5ixty Boys Out for High School Track. Coach Aubrey Bonham. announces that there are about thirty hopefuls trying out every day for the Algona nigh school track team. There are ten men from last year's squad out With twenty new ones, all striving to run faster than the other fellow. Hurdlers seem to be lacking for this year's squad but there are plenty of dash men with five or six half milers and two or three good milers. The field events are pretty well taken care of with the exception of high jumpers and broad jumpers but this will be remedied before the season starts. The flist meet will be the home meet on March 28 and Emmetsburg WiV come here the first week after spring vacation. All the boys are working hard in order to make the team and get the opportunity to see some of the nig college and high school meets such as the Drake relays or the Sioux Falls relays.

Betty Jane Messenger, who has been out of school for some tune on account of an operation, is now back in school again. There is an enrollment of 74 pupils at the Congregational church. Miss Portman's second grade pupils gave their yearly program to the other school children Thursday afternoon. Friday they will give it for their parents. The program consisted mainly of Mother Goose plays and songs. as sisters who waited on the table. Between the second and third courses, toasts were given with Kathryn Funk as toastmaster. The civics class proposed drawing up a petition against the ten per cent tax on amusements which would be signed, judging from the enthusiasm of the class, by most of the civics students. We wonder if some of them would not change their opinion if they knew that this ta is to be used in the school fund and would relieve the property tax to some extent. The bar chart which is being kept for the beginning and advanced typing classes is racing red lines across the sheet as the rates of the students pile up. In the beginning class Bernice Harrington leads with a rate of 54 words a minute and, Helen Becker and Genevieve Hartshorn are second and third respectively. In order to raise the rate, the typists must not have over seven errors to be shown on the chart. I wonder if very many of the students have noticed the difference in the tough lt Miss things.

You will cease to wonder why the juniors and seniors who sit in rows 4 and 5 seem to walk with a stagger througfh this narrow pass. A few curious ones, in an effort to discover the reason for the so-called staggering, found that one aisle contained nine floor boards and the other twelve. About 25 of the high school students took part In the play "Protection" given by the Anti-Saloon League at the Methodist Church Monday evening. The pilay was a law suit brought against a bootlegger. Some of the principal characters were Carl Medin, bootlegger; Peter Chubb, prisoner; Lyle Runchey, defense attorney; Karl Shumway, prosecuting attorney; Melvin Slhilts, county attorney; Everyal Adams, sheriff; Thomas Vlpond, newspaper editor; John Simpson, detective; Kenneth Medin, clerk; Joe Jordan, another witness; Yillard Zeigler, banker; William Monlux, constable; Helen Morrow, the plaintiff and Margaret Habeger, society woman. Twelve other students acted on the Jury. The junior normal training girls are studying about the proper amount of height and air necessary hi a school room. We suggest that they enlist the help of Eugene Pearson if they find we do not have enough fresh air. The senior normal girls have made booklets of their history lesson plans. Some of these booklets will be sent to the fair. The zoology class found that some animals studied are common but not often observed. Such an animal is the pressed again after it has gone through the system. One-third of the total number of cans of ice are emptied and refilled with fresh water every twelve hours The water in these cans is kept in continual motion. Pipes of compressed air run to and fro between the cans with connecting pipes to each can. This compressed ah- keeps the water in constant motion so that only the pure water freezes and that containing the mineral matter, which has come out of the solution, stays in the center. When almost all the water is frozen, the mineral water is drawn off and fresh water let in. This fresh water has a small per cent of mineral matter in It— but only a small per cent. This is why the center of the block of ice is opaque. The blocks of ice are completely frozen in thirty-six hours. The cans containing the ice are then taken from the tank of brine and placed in a trough where warm water is run over the cans until the cake of ice slides out. The cakes of ice are then put in the storage room for future WALL PAPER CATALOGUES We have the largest assortment of beautiful moderately priced papers in stock now that we ever had before— 300 patterns from 4c to 48c per roll.

Last week a new pupil entered the Algona high school in the sophomore class. Her name is Mildred Wright and she comes from Flint, Michigan. The school she was attending there had an enrollment of about two thousand pupils. We hope she will like our school even if it is much smaller. Welcome to the Algona high school, Mildred. The sub-district declamatory contest was [held Thursday evening at Swea City. Algona high school had two contestants, Helen Morrow In the dramatic division and Donald Hutchins in oratorical. We are proud to report that they were both awarded first in their class and were successful in bringing home the beautiful trophy cup. This cup must be won three times in order to gain permanent possession of it. Pentori has won it twice but we are hoping Algona will be able to win it for the next two years and thus have it to adorn our trophy case permanently. Miss Duhigg, Miss Messer and Mr. Linnan acted as judges at the declamatory colntest given at St. Cecelia's academy last Wednesday evening. On Friday evening of last week Miss Duhigg went to Britt to judge a round of the state declamatory contest. Miss Messer's twelfth English class has been studying "Hamlet". They are planning to go to Mount Vernon to see the sophomore class of Cornell college dramatize this same play. Every year the sophomore class dramatizes one of Shakespeare's plays and this year it is "Hamlet." The play is under the direction of Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Tull. Miss Messenger has A WORTHWHILE TOUE. Several weeks ago the physics and chemistry classes went on a tour of inspection of the Algona Ice Cream & Candy Factory. They had been studying the different kinds of refrigeration and the method used in making artificial ice so the trip was very educational in that it gave them an opportunity to see the machines in operation. Mr. Taylor was a very liberal host, treating the classes to Eskimo pies and offering a prize to the student writing the best theme on the operation of the plant. Hazel Neeling won the five dollar prize and six others were awarded one dollar prizes. They were Genevieve Hartshorn, Alva Benson, Lucille Black, Dordthy Johnson, Margaret Laabs and Irene Davis. The ones taking first and second were low. corrected We hope and ahe offered that our readers be- will find them interesting and enlightening. Artificial Ice Plant. (By Hazel Neeling.) I wonder Just how many people in Algona know how the ice they use Is made. Several weeks ago the physics class had the opportunity of visiting the ice plant and discovering how the fundamental principle behind the manufacturing of artificial ice Is carried on. This making of artificial ice is an application of the principle that when certain liquids change to a vapor or gas, heat is drawn from surrounding objects thus reducing their «mperature. Compressed air from a large tank just inside the door is used to start ;he large Diesel engine which Is used to run the plant. Ammonia gas is used in the plant because of its low boiling point (-34 degrees C.) and because it has a high heat of vaporiza- .ion or it takes a large number of calories of heat to change the liquid ammonia back to a gas, and therefore t Is able to absorb a large amount of hot ammonia gas passes through an oil trap on Its way to the cooling coll. The purpose of this oil trap is to catch all oil that may have vaporized during the compression of the ammonia. If the oil were allowed to go on into the the pipes, they would become corroded and thus lower the efficiency of the plant. The ammonia gas is piped through the cooling coil and gradually liquifies as it did In the other plant. The water used hi the cooling coil is supplied from a large tank. The hot water coming back from the cooling coll is piped to the cooling tower on the top of the building and is sprayed ;hrough the ah-, cooled and returned » the tank and used over again. This lowers the expense of running the plant. Some of the liquid ammonia is piped to the first floor where it is used to cool the cream which Is to be made into ice cream. The ice cream is mad into bricks and packed in the storag cans while It is still rather soft. Thest bricks and cans are put in a room call ed the hardening room. Liquid am monia piped] from the basement i used in cooling the room. The ice cream hardens as the heat is absorbec by the ammonia and in a short time i is ready to be sold. Algona Ice Cream & Candy Factory. (By Genevieve A. Hartshorn). The Algona high school physics stud ente, on a tour of Inspection through the "Algona Ice Cream & Candy Pac tory a short time ago, found it to be one of the most modern, sanitary, up to-date plants of Ite kind in the North west. In studying the mechanical opera tlons of the machinery it was found that two systems are used; one for tht manufacture of artificial ice and the other for the making of Ice cream Both systems are applications of the principle that when certain liquids change to a vapor or gas, heat la drawn from the surrounding objects, thus reducing their temperatures. Ammonia, because of the low temperature at which it is converted into a gas (-34 degrees C.), \s the refrigerating agent used In the local plant. This gas Is compressed by a large compressor Into a liquid known as hydrous ammonia, and is forced into a double system of coiled pipes. Here the heat of expansion Is absorbed by the cold water and the atmosphere. Since the pipes containing the cold water fit Inside of the ammonia pipes, the cooling effect is greater than would be possible in a plant where cold water flowed over the ammonia pipes, for in the Algona factory, both a larger surface area of ammonia is exposed to give off heat and a larger absorbing area is present to take care of the superfluous heat. The power required to run the compressor is supplied by a large Diesel engine. form of colls In the tank of salt brine. Here the ammonia expands Into a gas, the heat required for the process being absorbed from the brine. The lat*-!- t ho?ig | ' t -4t Leaving the condensing coils, the ammonia flows on through an expansion valve where a small quantity Is allowed to flow through at a time into .heat before it changes back to a gas. ia system of larger diameter, providing The gas is compressed by pistons, more room for expansion and reducing J which are operated by the power pro-j the pressure. These pipes are In the _ .-is-cooled until its temperature is several degrees below the freezing point of fresh water. The water which is to be frozen is placed in cans the shape and size of the desired cake of ice and immersed among these colls along the floor. A steady stream of compressed is constantly directed into these cans to keep up a circulation of the water. Since pure water freezes at a higher temperature than that containing mineral matter that along the edges freezes first, while the water containing minerals Is carried toward the center, pumped out, and fresh water introduced to take its place. Since the water which Is pumped in contains some minerals, the area of white or opaque is accounted for. About one-third >f the cans are filled at twelve hour Intervals so that some cakes can be removed while others are being filled md still others are just beginning to freeze. About thirty-six hours are required to completely freeze a cake of artificial ice. The pipe entering the brine tank is coated with a heavy covering of frost due to the exceedingly low temperature of its contents. The one leaving the tank has a much thinner frost coating since more heat has been ob- sorbed and is being carried through it. Prom here the ammonia is piped ;hrough the storage room back to the compressor. A large tank of liquid ammonia extending the full length of one wall of the plant keeps the flow of the fluid constant, increasing the cooling capa city. To remove the cakes of ice from th cans, the Algona plant has a regula hoisting device to lift them from th floor to a place where enough hot wat er is sprayed over them to loosen them from the cans from which they slid down a chute Into the storage room where ammonia pipes along the cell ing keep the temperature low. Since these pipes are placed along the ceil ing they are particularly effective, fo the heavy cool air circulates to tht floor around the stored ice, and the hot air goes to the celling to be cool ed by Uie ammonia in the pipes. As the frost collect* on these pipes from the gold medal In a national contest for the quality and purity of his ice cream made in his Algona plant, and though Dolly Madison, wife of fourth president of the United States, has the distinction of being the first hostess to make and serve Ice cream in this country, he can truthfully say that he is the first person to make and serve Ice cream to the Algona public.

From these pipes the ammon- a Is sucked or drawn back to the compressor where It is used over again. The cool water which, during the process has been wanned somewhat Is pumped up, cooled, and used again inside the pipes for the same purpose. The plant also has another system, very similar to the one Just described, which 1« used In making Ice cream, fust above the compressor is a tank whose purpose is to catch all surplus oil and grease from the machinery to ceep It from corroding the circulatory pipes and lowering their efficiency. All of the cream used by the local >lant is pasteurized. After pasteuriza- •ion it is run through A cooling coll. Next it is put In the mixer with the other necessary Ingredients, and when a mushy stage Is reached, it is put In the hardening room in containers which are set on shelves composed of colled pipes, of the cooling system where the hardening process Is competed, The temperature of this room very low.
