History of the Pioneers
N THE summer and fall of 1854, several adventurous spirits came "for to see and admire"
and finally to stay in one of the most beautiful spots in northern Iowa. They settled in
Algona or in its immediate vicinity. These were the pioneers whose pictures you see on
the preceding pages. All did their share in making possible our Algona of today, and of this
number D. A. Haggard is still with us.
Mr. Haggard, at the age of 90, is well and hearty and can tell many a stirring tale of early
adventure and hardship.
The very first of these pioneers to land in Algona were Asa Call and his brother Ambrose.
On July 9, 1854, these men paused awhile in their quest for an ideal location for a town and
admired the beautiful view which lay before them. Here was a plain located on the top of a
hill, surrounded on three sides by a wooded valley.
"I believe, Ambrose, that this is the place we have been looking for," said Asa Call as
he tested the soil. And indeed, it was the first fulfillment of their dreams. 011 the following
day, with the aid of W. T. Smith, who was at that time in their employ, they staked out their
claims. Judge Asa Call soon returned to Iowa City, where his wife resided, for several weeks,
and Ambrose Call was left to hold the fort alo11e-the only white man in the county.
On August 27, 1854, the first women and children arrived. Among those who came in
this tiny caravan were Malachi Clark, his wife Rachael, son Thomas and daughter Elizabeth.
The family first homesteaded on the Parson-Bowan place but later moved to what is now known
as the Mann-Goffrey farms. Elizabeth Clark was married to Christian Hackman in 1859 and
the couple lived on the outskirts of the settlement where the brave young bride kept house
alone during the Indian trouble in the north. During the raid of the Sioux a big redskin
grabbed Mrs. Hackman and pulled her head down. She expected to have her head cut off
or at least suffer a blow from the tomahawk. Instead the Indian merely wanted a bright
colored comb which she wore.
On November 4, 1854, two men rode up to the Call cabin where the Judge and his wife
resided inquiring about the settlement. It was W. H. Ingham and Mr. Stine. The former was
merely seeking a good hunting ground, but being taken with the beauty and worth of the country,
he decided to remain and make his permanent home here.
David A. Haggard came to Algona to settle immediately after the Civil War. In 1854 he
had been a member of a group of surveyors sent out from Dubuque. He had lived on his farm
near Algona until 1881 when he moved to the town itself. He served as sheriff until 1886.
Another distinguished citizen of Algona first took up his residence here in the year 1855.
On the 20th day of May, August Zahlton came up from the Humboldt cave where he had been
living with Mr. Hackman and bought a claim in the Call Grove.
A young man of about 20 summers arrived from Boston 011 July 4th, "just looking the
country over to see what he could find.' ' He remained in the community until his death in 1928.
Algona has never had a more constructive 11or a, more desirable citizen than " Uncle Lew Smith. ' '
May 9th is also a memorable date for it was then that the D. W. King family drove into
the settlement and bought a claim in the Call Grove territory.
In the fall of '55 John Ellison Blackford, who was later to become one of the most
successful and prominent citizens in the state, arrived with his family. At the first town
election Mr. Blackford was made justice of the peace. His later political prominence was not
confined to this community only, for he was sent later to the state legislature. All buildings
erected during the years 1854-1855 had to be constructed of logs since there were no saw mills.
Judge Call was anxious to remove this handicap. Accordingly he decided to install a combined
grist and saw mill. Because of the difliculty in transportation, the machinery for the mill did
not arrive until the next summer and the mill was 11ot ready to operate until 1856. Thi mill
later burned and was never rebuilt.
When one considers the apparent hopelessness of the situation confronting the pioneers
one 's admiration for their perseverance and courage is greatly increased. Not much imagination
is needed to conjure up the difficulties they were forced to face. Here was a group of settlers
absolutely dependent upon themselves for food, shelter and defense against hostile Indian . It
is little wonder that the band was like one big family. The brotherliness as well as the bravery
of the group is well illustrated by the heroic defense against the Indians, especially at the
I11 the early part of July, 1855, a party of Sioux Indians invaded the settlements. Ambrose
A. Call, the unoflicial defender of the colony, was informed of their presence in rather a startling
way. A big Indian walked into his cabin, disturbed his Sunday nap, and was persuaded to
-all 1929 lt- ..

leave only after he had obtained some bullets by a trade. After this visitor had left, Mr. Call
with several others visited the Barney Holland place. There was some trouble going on there
for the Indians had turned their ponies into the Holland fields and had taken a grindstone to
the middle of the village and set Holland to turning it in order that they might sharpen their
knives and tomahawks. The villagers decided that if they wished to keep the situation under
their control 11ow was the time to take a hand in the alfair.
The settlers immediately demanded that tl1e ponies be turned out of the corn and that
Holland stop turning the grindstone. The Indians were stubborn but just as an open break
seemed inevitable, they yielded. The next day the Indians visited every cabin in the settlement.
The defenseless cabins they plundered, and at the others they merely begged for food.
The evening of the second day Mr. Maxwell came to the Call cabin stating that the Indians
had just left his cabin and that he was alarmed because they seemed very sullen and saucy.
They had taken what they wanted since he was unable to resist them on account of the woman
and children. Mr. Call, knowing that Mr. Maxwell had recently received a large load of
supplies which would further tempt the Indians, promised to go over the next morning as the
Indians conducted all the raids in daylight. Although he rose early the next morning and
left for the Maxwell cabin, Mr. Call found eleven husky young Indians armed to the teeth
swarming into the house. By the time he arrived, the house had been literally turned inside out.
Soon one of the braves began to drag out a two-bushel bag of flour and to take it to the
door. The men thought things had gone far enough so Mr. Call jumped forward, caught hold
of the sack and ordered the Indian to stop, but he was defiant and jerked the sack out of
Mr. Call's hands. Mr. Call seized the bag again with his left hand and with his right caught
the young Indian under tl1e chin. The Indian fell over backwards, striking his head o11 the
door as he fell.
Mr. Maxwell a11d Mr. Call set the sack up against the wall and took their stand beside
it, revolvers ill hand. For a moment the cabin was silent and then the spokesman for the
invaders came forward and asked Mr. Call to feel the edge of his tomahawk. Mr. Call took
the tomahawk and stuck it back in the Indian's belt. In a loud voice the Indian then said
that they would "nepo squaw and papooses" Qkill woman and childrenj. Call replied that
if they did they would "nepo" every Indian in the cabin. The Indians scoied at the idea of
two white men killing many Sioux, but at the same time they backed away. Maxwell became
alarmed for the safety of his wife and children and began at once to plan some way to get
them out of the cabin. Giving the Indians something to eat he distracted their attention
enough to allow Mrs. Maxwell and the children to escape. She ran to the Brown cabin about
a mile away and several men immediately started for the harassed cabin when notified as to
conditions by Mrs. Maxwell. When the Indians saw reinforcements coming, they got their
guns and backed away, but they were made to take 0E their blankets and retur11 stolen articles.
Thus another great crisis in the lives of the pioneers was passed. There were numerous other
encounters with the Indians and the bravery of the settlers was maintained in every case. The
new community passed through a severe term of probation when even the weather itself seemed
to unite with other forces to test the tenacity, courage and virtue of the settlers.
Eighteen hundred fifty-six is remembered as the notably wet year. Continued rains made
the highlands as well as the lowlands impassable. It began to rain early in tl1e spring and
kept up until late fall. The river overflowed in April and covered the valley between the two
bluffs. The crops that year were poor and very scanty over the entire state. As this came at
a time of financial depression, it was doubly felt by the settlers.
Another discouraging feature about this territory was the prairie fires. These usually
occurred in the fall when the frosts had deadened the prairie grass. Hundreds of acres of
grass were often swept away i11 o11e fire. '
During the last years of the '60's, the great annual fires lost their power. The redtop
and blue grass which began growing around the farms kept green after the frost came and
therefore checked the fires.
The great economic struggle did not occupy the minds and lives of the pioneer to the
exclusion of all else. They were both a congenial and an intellectual group. The first social
center was also a religious center, although there was no preacher available. Elder Marks,
described as "an eccentric, religious enthusiast," used to preach around at the dilferent cabins.
He was addicted to the use of big words, but he was uneducated and sadly confused their
meaning, much to the amusement of his audience. Ambrose Call records him as saying, "My
dear hearers when you are wriggling over the mouth of hell you will remember what old Marks
told yon. Why just a few days ago I read of the body of a woman whom her friends undertook
to move several years after her death, but they couldn't do it. It had become ver battum, it
had petrified, in plain English, my dear hearers, it had turned to stone and weighed 600
P Algona's first church, the Congregational church, was founded in 1856 by Father Taylor,
who served as its pa tor for 16 years. He was aifectionately called "Father Taylor" by the
whole community which, regardle s of creed or denomination, admired and respected the
sterling qualities of the man.

OME rambling recollections on education in Algona from its beginning down
to the present time.
By FLORENCE CALL Cowmzs
Education has always been emphasized in Algona as in all places in the west settled by
descendants of Puritan stock. Had conditions and circumstances been but slightly diEerent,
Algona might have fulfilled the dreams of a group of its early settlers and today be the seat
of a 70-year-old Congregational College. Or, had the vision of another group materialized,
thc campus of a flourishing Methodist school would be spreading across the oak-covered hills
overlooking the river south of town. And later, there were those in Algona who held fond
hopes of a State Teachers College crowning the hills to the north.
Each of these dreams and visions dominated the minds and hearts of various of Algona's
pioneers and the beginning of each scheme was realized for a longer or shorter time. However,
an unkind fate ruled Algona. These worthy pioneers, except in the' matter of warding off
Indians and of conquering the wilderness, did not always possess the art of visioning together.
So many splendid generals and so few fighting privatcs made up the community. As it is,
Algeria must be content with having what she does possess-one of the best public schools
in the State of Iowa.
This being Jubilee year, when we are all looking backward for a moment to see how far
we have come, let us peer back far enough to catch a glimpse of our very tirst school of any kind.
Mary Schenck Winter, daughter of Horace Schenck Qwho came to Kossuth County in
18565 and sister of Myron Sehenek of Union Township, wrote a few years ago: "I went to
school in the first schoolhouse in the county, which will be remembered by a few as 'Gopher
College.' It was a place dug out in the side of a bluff on the west side of thc road on the
north side of the creek CBlack Catj between the Thompson and Riebhof places. Four teachers
taught there at different times. The 'College' burned down after two years and school was
held in part of Mr. Riebhoff's house until another schoolhouse was built."
Just how much of this seat of learning was made of wood and was infiannnable, and how
much of clay, Mrs. Winter does not tell us.
In 1856 the little group of settlers in Algona began the erection of a frame building on
State Street called the Town Hall. For over ten years this building was used for church and
Sunday school, for singing-schools, dances, public school, caucuses and meetings of any and
all sorts. This is the building around which the stockadc was built at the time of the Spirit
Lake massacre when all the settlers of Northwest Iowa were thrown into such a panic by the
In this unplastered little building, Flavia Fleming taught the first school in Algona in
the summer of 1857. I have heard my mother, Mrs. Ambrose A. Call, who was one of the
pupils, describe this little school and the one also taught in the Town Hall by Mr. J. E. Stney.
Before the Hall was abandoned as a schoolhouse, I, too, began my education in the same
historic building, Miss Lucy Leonard of New England being the teacher.
My most vivid recollection of Miss Leonard 's school is of being in a geography class of
two six-year-olds-Minnie Ingham Know Mrs. C. M. Doxsee of Californiaj and I standing up
in front of "Teacher," our copper-toed shoes in line on a crack in the floor, reciting from our
little, square, thin book, in high, piping voices, "Perhaps where your house now stands the
Indians have chased the wild buifalo." Alla no doubt they had!
That winter the new schoolhouse was built. It was located where Central School now
stands. It boasted of three rooms-Primary and Intermediate on the first floor, and a large
room above which was simply called "Up-stairs." The building was crowned with a cupola
and a bell which was rung, calmly though insistently at school time, and rapidly and excitedly
in case of a fire. I remember yet its astonishing clangor early one March morning when our
own house burned to the ground.
Miss Leonard and Miss Lizzie Reed taunt of Miss Lucia Wallacej were the first teachers.
The schools were not graded at that time but the pupils were assorted for various reasons

besides scholarship. Usually the Primer class and McGuffey's First and Second Reader pupils
were in the Primary room, Third and Fourth McGuHey's Reader class in the Intermediate,
and the Fifth and Sixth, "Up-stairs." I remember the pride with which, at about eleven,
I left Miss Reed's room and went "Upstairs" where Mr. A. M. Horton taught. I donned
my shoes in honor of the event, as bare feet were not fashionable in thc Fifth Reader class-
among the girls at least. Gingham sun-bonnets with pasteboard slats were all the rage that
summer. School athletics consisted of ball games and fighting matches among the boys and
"jumping-the-rope" among the girls.
In 1872 Algona became an Independent School District, with Mr. Horton as Principal.
Then followed a long line of men in succession, the building being enlarged at times and the
overflow sometimes being housed in the Baptist Church.
Mr. Clayton B. Hutchins was Principal for a time and the order he was able to establish
among the big boys was almost phenomenal. Mr. J. H. Saunders served for several years. He
was a musician as well as an educator and played the cornet with skill. C. P. Dorland was a
very popular teacher, well liked by everyone, as was Mrs. Dorland. A. S. Benedict was
considered rather odd. He later went on the stage.
In the fall of 1882, Gardner Cowles came to Algona as Principal, he was just out of college
himself. He graded the schools and made out a course of study which the school board
adopted. Before this time, a pupil attended school as long as he liked. After 1882, the regular
course of study was strictly followed, and in 1884 the first student graduated from Algona
High School. Commencement exercises were held in the Court House Hall so all Algona might
attend. The class of 0116 appropriately adopted as its class motto, ' 'A Grain of Mustard-seed, ' '
and Miss Jessie Smith, sister of Mrs. A. L. Rist, received the first diploma ever issued in
Algona, graduating with all the honors of the class.
Following Mr. Cowles came Mr. F. M. Shippey, whose wife and children were drowned
while boating on the river above the dam. Mr. Shippey was succeeded by Mr. F. L. Coombs.
Mr. W. H. Dixon, who was next to be called, died while teaching in Algona. Mr. N. Spencer
was a very popular Superintendent. He was succeeded by Mr. Ralph E. Towle, who escorted
a party of Algonians to Europe during one summer 's vacation. Mr. Towle was succeeded by
the present Superintendent, Mr. J. F. Overmeyer.
When I was a child trying to learn the Kings and Queens of England, we sang a little
rhyme which ended with "God sent us Victoria-may she long be the last! " So will we say
of Mr. Overmeyer, who has conducted our schools almost more years than all the others
together. He and Miss Minnie J. Coate as High School Principal have probably more successfully
shaped the careers of "young Algeria" than all other influences combined. This you know
as well as I.
Had space permitted I should have named' others who have taught at the Depot School.
Miss Blair and Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Colby, parents of Mrs. Mabel Colby, are those I remember
most vividly in the long ago.
The constantly growing population of Algona has necessitated the enlarging of the old
and the building of new schoolhouses since the first modest frame building of '67, The present
Central building was the first of Algona's brick schoolhouses, built in 1886. Ten years later
the Third Ward building was completed and in 1899 the beautiful Bryant building, which has
since been enlarged, was completed.
Algona has always been proud of her schools alld has ever insisted on the best both as to
teachers and equipment. For forty-five years Algona has been sending her High School
graduates out into the world, and many prominent citizens owe their success in life to the
principles instilled while attending "Algona High."
Among those attending the High School during the two years of Mr. Cowles ' administration
were Jessie Smith, Julia Burnard, Ernest Gilbert, Edith Clark, Bertha Call, Mary Smith,
Stella Call, James Paine, George Ingham, Grant Ramsey, Eddie Burnard, Vesta Call, Cora
Hibbard, Cornie Ingham, Ida Jolmson, Leota Lamberson, Fred Palmer, Clark Rice, Lora Rice,

The Class of '29
EVENTY-FIVE years ago, the pioneers who made our present A. H. S. possible crossed
the unknown prairies and rivers into a land peopled with Indians more or less hostile. The
task of building and maintaining homes in the wilderness required bravery, strength and
many sacriiices. Many believe that the pioneering spirit is lost in this sophisticated age, but
this belief is disproved by the Class of '29.
In '25 the class started on their journey through the limitless spaces of general knowledge.
They were pioneering, and their covered wagon means of traveling was slow and tedious, and
each day so little progress was made that no headway seemed to be gained. The experienced
guides Cfacultyj observed and understood this discouraged state of mind and helped the group
to keep on the trail.
Though they were forced to face tests Csemester examsj their fortitude carried the majority
through successfully. The attacks of the unfriendly Indians Qfootball gamesj were less dreaded
because of four grim, hard fighting men CGeorge Lichter, Wilfred Johnson, Wayne Keith,
On one interesting occasion during the first of the journey a band of friendly Indians rode
into camp. Through the three interpreters QRachael Clayton, George Free, Alice Rist in declamj
much beneficial knowledge was obtained, because the Indians held many secrets that would aid
the pioneers on their long journey.
By the close of the first year some had dropped along by the wayside, but the remaining
ones were determined to go. Experience had been a good teacher for them all, and with their
pioneering spirit they had advanced far into unknown fields. There were great hopes for the
coming years and they awaited expectantly the time to resume their journey. Success had
made them eager to carry on the good work of those who had gone on before. September
found the assembled group remarkable for an unmistakably dignified and awe-inspiring
mien fSophomore egotismj that demanded respect and admiration from the less experienced
QFreshmenj because of the great responsibilities that were to be borne.
The journey this year in a stage coach was much speedier than with the heavy, lumbering
covered wagon. There was more organization, there were definite trails to follow, each traveler
had a certain de tination in view, and there was, above all, greater efficiency. There were
those who carried extra responsibilities, such as the outriders and guards. The travelers vested
a great deal of trust in the outriders ftrack and basketball men: G. Lichter, M. Lichter,
Nordstrum, Keith, Whitey and the bravery and daring of the guards Qfootball men: Miller,
Keith, Geilenfeldt, M. Lichter, Nordstrum, Whitey carried the travelers safely through the
terrifying attacks of the Indians.
During the long journey the hours were whiled away by the gifted story tellers fdeclam:
George Free, Marian McMahon, Everett Anderson, Doris Long, Alice Rist, Rachael Claytonj.
Much talent was found in the group. There were the old time fiddlers Csix orchestra membersj
and the singers Coperetta and quartettes: Everett Anderson, George Free, Margaret Blossom,
Doris Long, Catherine McCallj who kept everybody happy, and before the group could realize
it the year was over, but much had been accomplished. They had covered much ground, and
the defeats were few compared to the victories they had won. Each year this group had, with
the aid of their guides, discovered many treasures which had been dug out with much labor,
and had been stored away to take with them for future use.
The following year was destined to be a record-breaking year. This year all the trip was
made by railroad, and the rapidity with which the group forged ahead was astonishing. With
Magnus Lichter fclass presidentj as conductor, the group was organized, and the motto, t'We
can because we think we can, ' ' was adopted. During the first of the trip nine stops were made
for football games. Nine men from the group were on the squad fLichter, Nordstrum, Keith,
Sheppard, Geilenfeldt, Miller, M. Lichter, White, Randyj and from every game they came
back undefeated amidst the triumphant shouts of the rest of the group.
Much time was spent in preparation for programs that were broadcast by the train 's
portable broadcasting station, A. H. S. A special group was chosen to take turns at the
microphone as announcers fdeclam: Richard Banwart, Bernard Frankl, Marie Paine, Florence
Seeman, Doris Long, Julia Dearchs, Alice Rist, Marian McMahon, George Free, Everett
Andersonj. Their renowned reader QJu1ia Dearchs, State Declamatory Contest, charmed her
audiences, and she was known as a second Fanny Brice. Doris Long Qdebatej gave many
talks on educational and political problems.
- 1929 - me
- The Senior Magazine -
Along toward the last of the year a comic opera was broadcast. Most of the cast was
chosen from members of the group QMargaret Blossom, Gerald Hartshorn, George Free,
Catherine McCall, Iola Lehman, Doris Long, Everett Anderson, Joe Sheppard, Dolph Miller,
Lawrence Misbach, Arthur Nordstrum, Bernard Frankl, Alice Kain, Alice Ristj.
The stenographers on the journey organized a club, and then chose four competent girls
of their group to represent them in a district contest QZelba Winkie, Gladys Paetz, Marie Knude
son and Rachael Claytonj.
The basket ball games, in which White, G. Liehter, Nordstrum, Keith, M. Liehter and
Sheppard were outstanding players, were broadcast twice a week.
At the close of the year tl1e greatest social event of the season was given by the group.
The banquet CJunior-Senior banquetj was given in the diner of the train in honor of those
people who were completing their four-year courses. It was one of those never-to-be-forgotten
events. The work and planning put forth for its success were well repaid by the enjoyment
everyone received. '
One day, late in May, the train roared into a station after a hard pull up a last steep hill
fsemester examsj. Everyone hastened oi? the train for there were to be three months of rest
before the last lap of the journey.
After the all too short vacation the class of '29 assembled for the last time together and
made ready to finish their journey by the Super-Zeppelin. They needed the speediest and most
eiiicient means of transportation, and this, without a doubt, was the best means.
The group chose Eugene Stephenson Cclass presidentj as pilot, and the excellent motto
they had taken the year before was retained because none more fitting for the group as a whole
could be found.
The Zeppelin was sailing west over a great expanse of water, and just when they were well
on their way they ran into severe headwinds and stormy clouds. The skill of the navigators
and mechanics Cfootball men: M. Liehter, Geilcnfeldt, Keith, Knowles, Sheppard, White, Miller,
Nordstrum, basket ball: White, Nordstrum, Knowles, Sheppard, Liehter, Stephensonj carried
them through without loss.
Each traveler had his special duty to perform every day, but there was plenty of time
left which could be put to good advantage.
The suggestion for forming clubs was enthusiastically agreed upon, and those who were
interested and were willing to give their time entered into the scheme.
The first two clubs were the singing clubs CGlee Clubsj and the expression club Cdeclamatory
work: Richard Banwart, Bernard Frankl, Julia Dearehs, Doris Long, Alice Rist, Rachael
Clayton, Alice Kain, Marie Paine, Shirley Hill, Milford Green, Dona Coon, Florence Seemanj.
The debating club consisted of four eloquent, convincing speakers: Gerald Hartshorn, Alice
Kain, Doris Long, Marian McMahon. On two evenings a program Coperettaj was give11 in
which George Free, Everett Anderson, Joe Sheppard, Catherine McCall and Alice Rist took
part, assisted by the Glee Clubs and the orchestra. The stenographers, not to be outdone, had
contests to determine who were the speediest and most accurate in their work. Zelba Winkie,
Rachael Clayton, Marian Rising, Doris Long and Gladys Paetz won out.
All these activities inspired the group to write a journal that would be a lasting memorial
of their work and pleasure QSenior Magazinej and just as it was finished, their long journey
was brought to an end, for land was in sight. The members of the group were now to go their
separate ways, and it was with great regret and sadness that they parted.
Four years of pioneering have been finished by the class, and the trail stretches far, far
into the west. It required great bravery and physical strength to bring a wilderness occupied
by hostile people to civilization but the pioneering spirit accomplished it. The pioneering of
the future will not depend upon physical strength, but upon mental strength, and in this work
the Class of '29 will do its share. '

-iii The Senior Magazine -
CERTAIN young drug clerk found in the back room one morning a bottle
which contained a dark, foul-smelling liquid. He took a taste, coughed
twice, and 'took another. Fire! Still, not so bad. The surface of his
tongue was eaten away and his tonsils were parched, but away down inside
it left a warm, toasty feeling. Yes, he 'd have another. A shudder shook his
spare frame and the broom dropped from his senseless fingers. Gurgle-
The air throbbed with music. The stately rhythm of a grand symphony
orchestra filled a large and magnificent chamber. 'tGreat-'at's fineli' he cried
as he clapped his hands with glee. The leader turned to acknowledge the applause
and behold-'twas none other than Milo, the great Durant who had won nation-
wide fame by playing a non-stop tune on a jew 's-harp for thirty-six hours, one
second. His hair was long and was pushed back over his ears, while dashes of
grey appeared throughout. Furrows of care lined his Grecian forehead and
he seemed bowed down with weighty matters C200 lbs.D. NVho was hiding in
the coils of that big brass horn? Margy Blossom-he could tell by that pretty
blush. No one had ever suspected Margy of horning in that way before. A
full-grown mustache was not sufficient disguise to conceal Kate Geilinfelt, who
busily occupied himself in the corner with the intricacies of a bagpipe--just a
bag of wind. lVhence came that haunting melody, that rhapsody of sound? John
Knowles, to be sure, wringing blue tones from his musical reed.
What a racket! Motors roared, horns howled, brakes screeched, and the
wandering clerk gazed into the maelstrom of the busiest street corner in the
world. High up in the traffic tower an officer, resplendent in a brass-buttoned
blue uniform, operated the signal controls. There was no mistaking that manly
figure--it was "Barny" Frankl. Leaving the controls to an assistant, he made
his way through the traffic and greeted the interested observer with a punch in
the ribs. Just then a long, black limousine glided by with an ermine cloak
hanging carelessly out the window and a phone number painted on the door.
"Alice Rist," remarked the officer in reply to the raised eyebrows, "She lives
on Easy Street and has made herself famous by her gold-digging tendenciesf,
Horns mooed and drivers cursed as a huge truck-load of corn made its way
through the consternation. "Step on it, Keith," piped Barney. An overturned
fruit cart made a mess in the gutter and Leon emerged from the ruin singing,
"I Faw Down and Go Boom."
Leaving his policeman friend, the clerk meandered down the street and
glanced in a Hamburger Shop window. There was Eloise "Hutch" flipping the
animals and rationing them out to " Cowboy" Seward, who devoured them with
great gusto the while he dexterously drank from his ten-gallon hat. Glancing
toward the street again, the window-peeper noticed several large white vans with
the inscription, "Denny Becker 's Paper Towel Laundry," painted on the sides.
No sooner had they disappeared from view than a sudden surge of the crowd
deposed the gaping rubber-neck in the lobby of a beautiful movie palace. Boldly
he rapped at the entrance and, having been admitted, he was ushered to a box
by Janitor Stanton, who had just finished cleaning the cuspidors. A Vitaphone
production was in progress, and the audience was applauding Dolph Miller, who
was playing a harmonica beneath a balcony where Florence Seeman balanced
on the rail. Suddenly the underbrush parted and out jumped her enraged papa,
-if The Senior Magazine -
Ellwood, who proceeded to bounce an ice cream brick off the head of the dashing
young hero as he dashed over the garden wall. As the picture drew to a close,
Katy McCall raised both feet to the keyboard of the wicker pipe organ and played
as she never played before. When the curtain raised again, Olivia Kressin was
discovered turning cartwheels around the stage and tossing horseshocs to Shorty
Steve who caught them in his teeth. A sneeze, however, caught Shorty unawares
and he limped from the public gaze with two black eyes. The next number proved
to be a novelty dance featuring Frank Lathrop and Alice Kain in their interpre-
tation of anesthetic motion. Cheers, cat-calls, and hiccoughs slowly faded into
silence at the conclusion of this spectacular display, and the attention of the
privileged spectator was drawn to a group of noisy women in the gallery who
were throwing peanut shucks and slurring remarks at the people below. On
looking, as well as listening, more carefully he identified Rachael Clayton, Betty
Streit and Dorothy Samson. With a crash of music, the stage was flooded with
light and out from the wings dashed Mary Harris. Gaily she danced-hither
and yon among the scenery-first on one foot, then on the other, then on all fours.
Happy and gay, she tripped to the center-down on her knees and gracefully
salaamed to the audience. Could it be a Swan Dance? Without giving the house
a chance to recover, a men's quartette made its appearance dressed in pink
rompers. The coupon customer in the box gasped as he recognized Charley
McMahon, Richy Banwart and Darold Newville. But if he gasped then, he
groaned as he listened to the strains of "Cutey Blues," "Ole Black Joe," 'Alley-
Iley-Hazel," and "Onward Christian Soldiers." The patient patron 's patience
was taxed to the limit--he could stand it no longer-so, covering his ears with
both hands, he bolted for the fire escape.
Once outside, his feet rattled on the iron steps. Iron doors clanged, and
bars cast shadows across a long corridor. What could this be? Not a-yes,
indeed, this place seemed to bear the very earmarks of a penitentiary-cauliflower
ears on every hand. Peeping shyly into a nearby cell, he espied a hard-boiled
yegg dressed in striped pajamas who seemed to be absorbed in the interesting
occupation of cleaning sponges. At the moment he recognized the convict as
Everett Anderson, the visitor was accosted by Art Nordstrom, Warden, who was
leading a prisoner under the double guard of Ruth Bishop and Marian Rising.
Alas-alack !--and what of our former student Misbach? Surely his fiery temper
had not urged him to a murder foul and fiendish upon some provoking instructor.
Poor, inoffensive little "Bub" in the Skookum House-unbelievable! The errant
clerk, however, was convinced when informed that the culprit was in the "stir"
for bumming rides with his row boat by hooking on to the sterns of ocean liners.
Rapid walking in an endeavor to leave these touching scenes behind soon
brought our medium to a rural district where purple dandelions bloomed on
every tree and birds sang all the latest popular numbers. Passing an absorbent
cotton field, he waved to Zelba Winkie, Dorothy Mangan and Buck White, who
seemed occupied with the task of plowing under the four leaf clovers with a
seven-row corn planter. How relieving to find some of the old acquaintances
thriving by the sweat of the brow. Coming to a little brown church, he quietly
entered and discovered the Right Reverend Hartshorn performing his devotions
at the altar. His bald pate gave forth a heavenly luster and his kindly face
beamed with beneficence. His sacramental garments added to his saintly appear-
ance, and it was a dirty shame that the congregation consisted of but one-
As the spiritually moved bystander reached for a hymn book, the surround-
ings shifted and he grasped the grass skirt of Shirley Hill as she danced on the
beach of a southern isle. Red Green was playing a concrete ukelele under a pine

tree nearby, while Iola was loudly expounding the theories of Einstein to Drusilla.
Banners displayed from prominent palm trees announced to the public that
Dr. Sheppard would install monkey glands at cut rates over the week-end. Doris
was soon discovered in the rear of a nearby clothing shop marking overalls under
the guidance of her Steele will. Here it was learned that Marie Paine was quite
taken up with aviation and that she was at that time Working on a plan to use
turbine engines in commercial planes of all types. -
Gladly the wanderer accepted a ride in "Maggy" Lichter's new machine,
the "Air Shingle," and swiftly they sped through the air. As the contrivance
flashed over Hawaii a powerful telescope revealed Leona Clark in a tree-top
picking her own dates. In a short time the United States was sighted and far
below were many signs which drew the attention of the would-be aviator. One
in particular stood out among the rest-"Prof. Fraser, Authority on All Matters
-Ask Me A Question." A white-washed roof advertised the Knudsen, Kuchen-
reuther, Kutschara Kandy Kitchen, while right next door appeared the Sponberg,
Olson, Peterson Pawnbrokers' Association. A large pasture displayed the mes-
sage, "Learn to Fly-Elsie Egel and Ruth Batt." To the eastward another bill-
board proclaimed to the world that Sarah N eeling always reached for an Electric
Swisher instead of a mop. A thriving business center appeared below, and
through the smoke the observer soon picked out the familiar landmarks of Algona.
Imagine his surprise, however, at discovering the old High School building
decorated from the ground up with black and blue crepe paper. The shingles
advertised f'Marian McMahon 's Home for Old Maids-We Save Waywarcl
Girls." "Maggy" prepared to drop a message beseeching the management to
save one for him, when suddenly the plane Went into a sickening spin.
Down-down-down-kerplop! Blinkingly the truant opened his eyes and
gingerly picked himself up from the floor. "Wow! A rosy future may lie before
them," cried he, "but--ow-my rosy past!"

E, THE SENIOR CLASS of the Algeria High School, being of simple minds fso says
Mr. Huittj do on this twenty-ninth day of May, nineteen hundred and twenty-nine,
declare this to be our last will and testament, and do here and now revoke all other
wills or beneficiary documents heretofore made. First let us set forth the personal bequests
of the members of our illustrious class.
George Free Zllld Marie Paine, after due consideration and acting upon the advice of Milo
Durant, do solemnly will and bequeath their mutual affection to Howard Butterfield and Jo
Chubb. George solemnly promises to assist Howard in polishing his technique in case such
action becomes necessary.
"Cowboy" Seward leaves to Philip Arndorfer a brace of trusty "grits" which have
served him well in fighting Indians and bank robbers, providing Philip will preserve his
enviable record. Philip has taken a terrible load 011 his shoulders, as "Cowboy" has certainly
slaughtered the Indians.
Arthur Nordstrum leaves to "Herb Joesting" Nelson one pair of shifty football shoes
which he sincerely hopes will aid the speedy Nelson in his ope11 field running. A
John Fraser leaves his new billiard cue and one box of pool chalk to James Vipond, pro-
viding that James will allow his brother Thomas to play with the cue immediately after the
said Thomas becomes an "AU student.
The Reverend Perry A. White, known in certain circles as "Buck", leaves to John
Hargreaves a marvelous collection of demerits. At a meeting of the Senior Class it was decided
that the aforementioned "Buck" White should leave his winning way with the teachers to
After due consultation with John Fox and Joe Jordan, Margaret Blossom has definitely
decided to bestow her grades in English to Frieda Roeder. In the event that Frieda does not
desire said English grades, they are to become the sole property of Eugene Pearson.
Alice Kain and Sarah Neeling bequeath their excellent conversational ability to Hoyt
Raney. The said Hoyt, if not desiring to be immediately executed, is here instructed to forget
afore mentioned conversational ability immediately after receiving it.
"Red " Green dedicates a large quantity of persistent fortitude to Nine Shackelford and
challenges her to get by with it as he has done.
Paul Geilenfeldt leaves one moustache to .Peter Chubb. We just know the moustache will
tickle some deserving young lady someday.
Alice Rist and Bernard Frankl leave Bernard's Ford Coupe to Carl Pearson and Mary
Adams. Alice says 0116 car is all they can use at one time and the Chevrolet seems to be the
better of the two.
Frank Lathrop, after due consideration, has decided to leave his abundant supply of bluff
to Lyle Runchey, providing that Lyle will keep it in his car to be used in case he should
unexpectedly run out of gas.
Marian McMahon leaves several copies of the "Frivol" to Miss Coate with the under-
standing that Miss Coate will read them to her next Virgil class.
Shirley Hill leaves her compact and curling iro11 to Elbe Van Dorston. We believe it was
meant that Elbe should carry a compact and we do not want him coming to school any more
with that beautiful wave fading.

Everett Anderson leaves to Miss Plaehn one package of doublemint chewing gum pro-
viding that she will chew each stick for thirty seconds, after which act she will spit said gum
in a certain specified wastebasket. This will probably place in her system a feeling of sym-
pathy for those who are forced to eject from their mouths large quantities of gum at frequent
intervals during her class.

To the Seniors of '29 we give a toast,
Of a wonderful class they boast,
And we know their boast is not in vain,
Because they have won much fame.
'l'hey've done their best for A. H. S,,
And have brought great honor to us,
We'll ne'er forget the things they've done,
Though years may go and come.
As the years roll by on the wheels of time,
And you've reached your highest climb,
Just look back again, where you began,
To your class of '29.
Look forward once more to the things in store,
When you've finished your High School career,
And leave the cares of your "High School World,"
The "World" that to you is so dear.
Four faithful years of labor done
For dear Algona High.
You've stood the test
And you've done your best
While parting days draw nigh.
You've set a pace,
And saved a place,
For those you leave behind,
Though it's parting time,
We know Fate will be kind
To the Seniors of '29.

Junior Class History
FTER receiving the O.K. from our parents, we fa class of one hundred eightj boldly
entered those ancient portals of Algona High in 1927. Even though some of the girls
wore out countless pairs of stockings from their constantly quaking knees, they soon
overcame their fear. We become better acquainted with our teachers and duties as the year
went on, but very few of us were 011 the Honor Roll. Mary Rice, however, brought honor to
our class by winning the Delphian prize for Freshman English.
Several gallant young lads tried out for the gridiron. When basket ball began, the upper-
classmen wondered if some of our boys had bee11 raised in Chicago. After noticing the accuracy
with which they were shooting Qnow, now don 't call out the ambulancej baskets in the inter-
Our first stage experience was in "The China Shop", an operetta presented by the High
School Glee Clubs. Even though we really thought they 'd se1've Chop Suey C!! l lj we certainly
got a big thrill out of being in the choruses.
After a three months' vacation wl1icl1, I assure you, was as beneficial to our brains as a
hole a day, we re-entered high school as upperclassmen! The honor roll this second year showed
that we were using considerably more energy on our school work. We snapped into our work
and decided to get things down cold Qand without the aid of a frigidaire eitherj. Harriet
Smith was elected as our president, and she successfully conducted the business of the class.
Our "kennel" was represented by Hoyt Raney, Harley Troutman, and several other Bull-
dogs, who fought for the dear old Scarlet and Black. Eugene Pearson, that slow but steady
player, and Dick Hartman f"Dead Eye Dick" as he was namedj proved useful to the basket
ball squad. Oh, and about track-. Perhaps a good many have wondered why the track is
cinders. Say! How could it be anything else with John Mangan out there burning it up?
The class participated in several parties, and it might be advisable to suggest that some
people try wearing lead gloves so that they 'll not be so light-fingered. You see--the girl's
Colonial party, which was given by the faculty to the High School girls, was short a cake or
two. But so much for that, I must tell you about the Freshman-Sophomore party. A chorus of
boys, followed by a chorus of girls who rendered similar selections, preceded the "lantern
slides. " Thanks to the efforts of Miss Pritchard and " The College Humor" they were, indeed,
successful. Then the floor was cleared for dancing. Neither the radio nor the victrola could
be heard through the scraping feet of the "Thundering Herd" of dancers, so the last resort
was the piano. Miss Meloy, Mary Rice, Harriet Smith each lent a helpful hand at keeping us
on our feet. We surely enjoyed the opportunity of making acquaintance with the Freshmen
and becoming accustomed to "mixing" in large groups.
Jo Murtagh, Harriet Smith and Gert Kenefick proved to be quite the Pollyannas in their
declam work-each received a gold "A" for their efforts.
In September, 1928, we felt that the days of our infancy were over. While a few of us
still liked to play with dolls, most of us Qthat is, the girlsj having acquired vanity cases, the
boys having tried out all the shaving creams on the market, felt we were ready for the more
serious work. We did well in declam. Jo Murtagh 's interpretation of a butter churner was
so realistic that not only the judges praised her work but we 'd not be surprised if Agnes Brown
should employ her in their dairy. Carl Pearson 's oration should also receive honorable mention.
In the operetta "Bulbul", given this year, we were proud to have the role of the "leading
lady" played by Phyllis Benson, one of our Juniors.
For the second year the boy 's basket ball team drowned out the other classes by sinking
so many baskets that it was just nobody's busi-QOh, let's change itj occupationg and so
many boys won "A's" in athletics this year that we heard the clothiers could not supply the
demand for black sweaters. Of course, there were Juniors among those awarded. Even
though the class did not have very many "stars" i11 athletics, they always formed the largest
part of the cheering section.
And, by the way, I 'm sure you 'll be surprised at the number of poets in the class when you
read Mother 's Day Booklet Qso do not forget to buy onel.
The big event for us this year is the Junior-Senior banquet. I can see about three score
dusting off Emily Post 's little "Blue Book." Bill CHE, being president, is to be toastmaster,
and we are all expecting him to do things up "brown",
This year has been a busy, but an interesting, one for us. In a short time, providing our
credits are satisfactory, we are hoping to qualify as dignified Seniors.

Sophomore Class History
TIIE '31 SPECIAL
HE 'U31 Special" pulled out of the terminal on September 5, 1927, to cover
the High School Division of the Road to Learning with the best record
With Miss Coate as dispatcher, the train made good time. But it was soon decided
that it would not do for everyone to try to manage the engine. Accordingly, Edgar
Finnell was chosen Engineer fpresidentl with Peter Chubb as Conductor fsecretary
and treasureri. '
The brakemen in each car fthe teachers of the different classesj had somewhat
of a task to keep the passengers interested in the interior of the ear and not gaze out
at the scenery.
VVhilc everything was going smoothly, Mr. Foster stepped in and offered a prize for
the most attractive decoration of his display window. Everyone clambered for an
opportunity to try his skill. A group was selected for the privilege and after duly
taking turns at the window, 4' '31 Special" was declared winner of third place.
The next contest was the Basket Ball tournament. In this only those who did not
get out for basket ball were allowed to compete. Here the '31's were second.
Soon after this exciting contest the passengers of The '31 Special were enter-
tained by the passengers of The '32 Flyer, at the Freshman-Sophomore party of 1927.
Miss Meloy and Miss Messer instructed the Glee Clubs in the artyof entertaining
the passengers with an operetta entitled "The Pirate's Daughter."
Then came summer, with a stop-off to enjoy the delightful weather. Many made
private side-trips to the many lakes and places of 2lIllllS0ll1PIlt.
On September third, after this long summer vacation, the whistle blew again.
This called us back to our most interesting travel.
Some of the former passengers had become so disheartened that they failed to
return. Others who had not been attentive during the trip were required to repeat the
journey if they desi1'ed the credit of finishing.
The next task was the selection of the ofiicials. For this trip, Harold Blinkman
was chosen Engineer with Genevieve Hartshorn as Conductor.
As soon as the train was well on its way, the passengers, taking notice of the sur-
roundings, found that The '32 Limited fFI'6Si1lI18Il Classj was having a hard time to
find any enjoyment in the trip. Accordingly, in October the Freshman-Sophomore
party, of 1928, was given by the " '31 Special."
The next bit of excitement was caused by the Basket Ball tournament. In this
contest "The '31 Special" was second.
The operetta which was produced through the elforts of Miss Meloy and Miss
Messer was "Bulbul."
Wit.h the next stop in sight, "The '31 Special" was over-shadowed with the final
examinations. These were to determine whether the passengers had profited any from
the journey. Most of the passengers had kept their interest and had gained a great
deal of knowledge. These were admitted to the next part of the journey. Some, in
spite of the warnings, had to take the trip again.
VVith a final squeak of the brakes, the train had stopped and vacation had come.

Freshman Class History
'Twas early September in '28
That ninety-five Freshmen arrived on that date.
We thought we were smart, some thought us green,
But a change of opinion was soon to be seen.
We stood their jokes a very short while
Then suddenly decided we must change our styleg
By not shirking our duty, but doing our best
We soon were keen rivals for all of the rest.
But soon we began to realize
That it was time for the class to organize.
For our president, tall John was electedg
And other officers were not neglectedg
For we chose Mr. Munch as secretary-
This duty, we know he well could carry.
And now together we work and sing,
And this, much joy to us should bring.
We 've helped our school by presenting to it
Two football players that are keen and fit,
Ken Cowan and Arlo are really some stars,
And both are hoping to get their red bars.
In glee club now, you can hear our voicesg
So with very good reason the class rejoiccs.
In orchestra too, we all do our bit
And that we're good, you '11 have to admit.
A variety we have, you can 't deny,
Just look at our class and this you 'll spy,
Of sizes and shapes, we've ev'ry kind-
Both short and tall you here will find,
And some that are thin and fat and slowg
And others that 're lively as well you know.
We differ in size-in looks and in name,
Except James and Tom who look just the same.
We work each day and make things hum
For we wish that none should think us dumb,
Our grades will show that We're no shirkers
But Just a band of willing workers.
We want to try to help our school,
And live up, each day, to its ev 'ry rule.
And those who'll help us this goal to attain
Are surely our teachers whom here I'll name.
If it 's Latin you want to study and learn,
Miss Coate will help you at ev 'ry turn.
Miss Starbuck, too, in work that's special
Gives you bugs and worms with which to wrestle.
Miss Krampe's English is 11ot so hard,
For here she allows you to write by the yard.
And when you want a good mathematician,
You 'll find Miss Pritchard just fills that position.
There 's cooking and baking and needle-work, too,
And these, Miss Goodwin will teach us to do.
From Bonham, the boys learn how to draw,
To measure and nail, to paint and to saw.
Miss Hjelle in the gym, and Tullis the coach,
Train the girls and the boys good health to approach.
With these, as our guides who've grown so dear
We 've learned how to work our Freshman year.

lllilili are outside aetivities and outside aetivitiesg some reeeive a lot of ballyhoo, some
are heard about, and others are hardly known to exist. Unfortunately our student body
seem to place debate in this last class.
The value of debate, however, eannot be stressed too greatly, and all eredit must be given
to our four lligh School debaters. Their path was roeky heeause they were experimenting
with an extemporaneous type of delivery and their reading material was extensive.
'Phe question chosen for debate this year was, Resolved: That the United States should
eease to proteet by armed forces Ameriean capital invested in Latin America, exeept after a
formal declaration of war.
The allirmative side of the question was supported by Doris Long and Marian McMahon.
'l'he negative was supported by Aliee Kain and Gerald llartshorn.
Only one of our debaters had had any previous experienee in debating, so in order to help
the other three, two tri:1l debates were seheduled. The first was a eritie debate with Eagle
Grove. In this debate the affirmative traveled. A eritie debate was also scheduled with Mason
City. In this debate the negative team traveled.
For the first round of the State Debate Algona was seheduled in a triangular debate 'with
llumboldt and Foil Dodge. In this debate Algona's negative team traveled to Fort Dodge,
while Humboldt 's negative eame to Algona. Algona 's negative lost to Fort Dodge 's aiiirmative,
while Algona's ailirmative won from lll1lllll0llll,S negative. Each town won and lost one
tlehnto but Fort Dodge, having the highest percentage, was given the right to go on in the Stale.
Our last and final debate was the No1'th Central Six tournament held at Eagle Grove.
llampton and NVQ-bster City withdrew, thus leaving only four towns to furnish competition. In
this tournament the regular Round Robin method was used. The results were Eagle Grove won
six, Clarion three, Algona two, and Humboldt one.
So here 's to more enthusiasm toward this worth-while aetivity in 1930!

HE operetta tl1is year was entitled "Bulbul" lamit, a well-meaning,
fussy, little Monarch, bethrothed his only child, the Princess Bulbul, to the
Prince Caspian, whom she had never seen. VVhen the Prince comes, he dis-
guises himself as a peddler. Thus clad, he seeks the palace. The prince-peddler
speedily wins Bulbnl's afleections and endeavors to persuade her to give up
Prince Caspian and elope with him-instead. This the Princess refuse-s.to do.
They agree to meet just once more. Unable to part with the man she loves,
Bulbul is found missing. She later returns and announces she will not wed the
Prince, but the man she loves-a peddler. Throwing aside the curtain behind
which the Prince is hidden, she exposes him to the full view of King and court.
Grief is turned to joy. The king recognizes in the supposed peddler, the prince,
and Bulbul is too pleased at the outcome to be indignant at the prank played
upon her. In the meantime Ida, Court Chaperon, has always had a lingering
fondness for the King, proposes to him under a promise he made, and he is
bound to consent. Alain and Lilla make a third happy couple and three wed-
dings are set for Tuesday at noon.
The operetta was successfully staged March llth and 12th, under the direc-
tion of Miss Mcloy, assisted by Misses Messer, Iljelle and Goodwin, with Doris
Long, accompanist, and Marion McMahon costuming. 4 I

Normal Training Club
IIE Normal Training Club was reorganized this year under the supervision
of Miss Wilson. The club elected for their officers the first semester: Dona
Coon, president, Adris Peterson, vice president, Gertrude Kuchenreuther. sec-
retary and treasurer, Agnes Brown, social chairman. The second semester of-
ficers were: Alberta Grosenbach, president, IIelen Fitch, vice president, Ruth
Humphrey, secretary and treasurer, Florence Seeman, social chairman.
The aims of the club are twofold-to stimulate professional growth and 'to
cultivate a social spirit.
From our regular meetings we have gained some useful suggestions for rural
school games, programs and poem study.
According to custom, the club had a party for the graduates of the pre-
ceding year. This year a Thanksgiving dinner party was given. Mrs. Finch,
formerly Miss Allenstein, was a guest of honor.

Girls' Athletics I
IRL 'S athletics are a prominent feature in our High Sehool, due not only to the girls'
interest in sports, but to their admiration for Miss Hjelle, their instructor.
This is the seeond year that there has been a Girls' Athletic Association. The following
otlieers were eleeted at the first meeting of the association: President, Dorothy Samson: 'Vive
President, Marie Paineg Secretary, Agnes Brown: Treasurer, Eloise Hutchison. All the girls
in the High School are entitled to be members of this association.
Two periods of gymnasium a week are required of the girls. The outside aetivities,
however, are optional. ln the fall the girls played soeeer, but there was no tournament. Later
on, an interelass volley ball tournament created a great deal of interest. The Juniors Won
the tournament. The interelass basketball tournament was won by the Sophomores.
There will be a baseball and a tennis tournament before school eloses.

HE interest of the Algona football fans was increased greatly this year. This statement
was proven by the fact that every afternoon there were spectators watching the men go
through practice. Football being the leading sport in Algona High, the team this year,
as well as preceding years, well merited the name, Bulldogs.
The only defeat for the Algona eleven was the one from Mason City. It was in this game
that the eleven played as well as possible, but not so well as the team could play. A little ill luck
which belongs to the game, tallied the defeat for Algona. The Fort Dodge game ended in a
scoreless tie. This was the hardest game of the season. Algona had three chances to score
while Fort Dodge had one. -
In pointing out the members of the regular line-up, Captain Paul Geilenfeldt CKatcj is
first to be mentioned. It was due to Paul 's hard tackling and splendid interference that 'thc
Bulldogs made such a good record. Geilenfeldt certainly showed his ability as a leader. Paul
was honored by a position as guard on the first All-State team. He also was tackle on the
All-North-Iowa team. Kate was worthy of all the mention received. He is a three-letter man
and will be lost to the team as he graduates in May.
On the wing positions we have Sheppard and Knowles, both of whom played some good
football during the season. Sheppard won honorable mention on the All-State team. Knowles
is a one-letter man and Sheppard is a two-letter man.
The tackle positions were filled by two very good men. Guilenfeldt held the left side of
the line while Adams, with his hard drive, held the other side. Adams is a big man and is a
one-letter man with two more years to show his stuif.
Two strong supports in the line were Miller and Troutman, at left and right guards
respectively. Both of these men did very good work and made it impossible for opposing teams
to make any gain through that part of the line. Miller is a three-letter man and certainly
showed lots of the old Bulldog fight. Troutman is a two-letter man and has another year to
come to the top. Barr, a big, strong man, ,is a promising man for guard next year. He has
shown plenty of scrap in the past two years. He has earned his letter and has' two more
years to fight for Algona High.
In the center of the line Magnus Lichter has gained prominence. All year he kept that
hole plugged. ' ' Maggie" did plenty in stopping the opposing teams by often breaking through
the line and also by coming out of the line and breaking up many of the end runs. "Maggie"
is a three-letter man. He was the pep instiller of the team, always talking it up. Litcher got
honorable mention on the All-State team and was also placed as center on the irst All-North-
Iowa team. Running a good second to Lichter was Hartshorn. Hartshorn was a very scrappy
man and showed good football ability. He was always there with the best. "Cap" Hartshorn
wo11 his letter and certainly was worthy of it.
In the backfield White at fullback, Nordstrum, "Flying Swede," at right half, Keith at
left half, and Raney at quarterback. This was a very good combination. All four of these
men were good ball carriers. White was a good ball carrier, ,passer and kicker and deserved
much mention. Nordstrum with his long, twisting, spectacular runs helped much in registering
so many touchdowns. Nordstrum made the second All-State team and also the All-North-Iowa
team. Keith, the speed demon, often thrilled the crowd with long runs. Raney, the team
general, showed good head work by calling the right plays. He was a very shifty man and
did well at carrying the ball. White is a three-letter man, Nordstrum four, Keith four, and
Algona will regret the loss of ten of these men by graduation. It is thought, however, that
other material is available. The men who graduate are Captain Geilenfeldt, Sheppard, Knowles,
Miller, Lichter, Hartshorn, White, Nordstrum and Keith.
Among the substitutes of promising ability there are the Medin brothers, Blinkman,
Martinek, Lindhorst, Cowan, Runchey, Moore, Parsons Ca one-letter manj, Knudsen, and many
other good men.
Much credit for the success of the team must be given to the two coaches, Mr. Tullis and
Mr. Bonham. These two men showed much interest in every man, and from them the team
received lots of fight and that old football spirit. They taught good, hard, clean football and
lots of sportsmanship.
Algona is going to follow the trend of many of the other schools and next year before each
game a captain will be appointed and at the end of the season the captain will be elected.

HE basketball team tl1is year just about broke even, having as many victories as defeat .
' There was plenty of good material, but the spirit seemed to be lacking. We hope that it
will be better next year. When the team was going well, it was almost impossible to
stop them. Because of lack of men it was necessary to do much shifting of positions. This, of
course, was a drawback for the team.
At the center position there was a good, snappy player, Perry White. He started the
season at guard but his ability to stop-up the ball made it necessary to put him in the front
line. He acted as captain the majority of the games.
The forward positions were handled very successfully by Nordstrum and Cliff. Nordstrum,
an old player, benefited the team greatly. The baskets he made from the middle of the floor
often brought the "Old Spirit" back and the team would pep up a bit. Cliff, playing his
first year, appeared to be an old hand. Eugene Stephenson also deserves mention as a forward.
He had as much snap as any player on the team.
Sheppard and Knowles were good at the guard positions.
Eugene Pearson, a Hashy man and a crack basket shooter, aided the team greatly at forward.
There are other men who deserve mention who will help make Algona High proud of
basketball in coming years.
HERE are many men out this season who have wonderful track ability, but due to a
soft track and many other hold-backs, the track team has not developed very rapidly.
The one thing that attracted most attention this year in track was the interclass
track meet. All the boys, of the different classes, did their best to uphold the standards of
their class. There was wonderful competition in all the track and field events.
