This year it was 27% colder than last year and 56.8% colder than a normal September. Records were set all over the area for the low temperature Tuesday night, as I hlave heard reports as low as 18 degrees for i n November. Titonka. The weather may have been cold, but did you notice the moon Tuesday night? It was really beautiful; a full, harvest moon. There Wasn't been much talk about our space explora- Cub Scouts To Sell Christmas Wreaths Pack 63 of the Titonka Cub 'Scouts held their School Night for Scouting recently. A number of boys joined the pack that night. Dens will be meeting for the first time this fall on Monday, October 7. Any boy interested in joining the pack is invited.

The Webelos will hold their meeting on October 10 at the home of their leader, Richard Trunkhill. Plan to order your Christmas wreaths from a Cub again this year. They will go on sale early October 5. The event, sponsored y the Titonka Chamber of !ommerce, is being used to promote the sale of Iowa corn ed beef, and members of the Kossuth County Cattlemen's association are assisting with the preparation.

Your donation of $1.50 will get. you a fine barbecue beef dinner with he menu to include barbecued beef on a bun, hot baked beans, potato chips, coffee or milk, and ice cream. In addition, you will receive a chance at three tions lately, but I still get a thrill whenever I look up at the moon and realize that men from earth have actually walked up .there. I guess it goes back to my Buck Rogers days when these things were talked about but never expected to actually happen. I want to apologize to Eugene Zwiefel for giving credit for a touchdown pass to Mark Zwiefel i n the Sentral game. Gene is a junior and has been working hard to gain his starting spot on the Indians .team, while Mark is a freshman and still has several years to receive the recognition. This year's homecoming floats had to be the most in- genius I have ever seen. The Judges must have had a tough time picking the winners as the classes and their advisors really out did themselves. Our' congratulations to the homecoming royalty, Vicky Schuller and Dave Hamilton. The regular baseball season has ended and now we have the playoffs and World Series to look forward to. The Twins made quLte a finish after a poor start, and their fans are looking forward to some great itfhings from them next year. It Will have been ten years since they were in the World Series and about time they had another shot at it. With the end of the baseball season, football has already taken over, and although the Vikings haven't had a really great game so far this year, they have managed to win all of their games and should have another shot at the Super Bowl.

The USDA September report on hogs and pigs indicates that the nation's total hog population on Sept. 1 was down a moderate 4% and that producers have plans for fairly large farrowing cutbacks in coming months. Iowa State University economist Gene Futrell attributes the decline primarily to high corn prices. Indians Pin Newman 16-0 For Homecoming Victory ers plan to farrow 10% fewer sows in the current September through November period than in the .same three moniths of 1973. This is a surprisingly larger projected cutback than the 2% drop indicated for that same period in the June report. The September survey indicated that farmers also plan to cut their farrowings 10% in the December through February period. Despite farrowing declines which are known to have occurred in the March through May period of the current year,. Futrell expects slaughter hog numbers to continue at or above year-earlier levels for the remainder of this year, due to a more normal marketing pat-1 Residents Asked To Read Water Meters Water customers of the City of Titonka received cards last week on which they are asked to record their present water meter reading and return it to the city clerk, Myrtle G. Alke, before October 10. Cards may be mailed or left at the City Hall. At .the last meeting of the City Council, members voted to initiate the new procedure in an attempt to simplify and reduce the cost of meter reading. Cards will be sent for .three quarters, and an actual reading of meters will be made only once each year. If your card is not returned by the 10th of the month following the billing, an estimated bill will be sent to .the patron, .and an actual bill will be sent following the reading by a city employee or the patron returns his card the next qaurter. prizes to be give n away follow-1 tern and lighter average mar- ng the dinner.

However, the trend is expected to reverse itself in about January. The economist expects volume to drop 3 to 5% below year- earlier levels in the first quarter of 1975, with as much as a 10% decline possible in the April through June period. Futrell looks for some further price weakness in the remainder of this year, followed by strength in the winter months as volume drops below last year's level. The Titonka Indians seemed to come of age Friday night as they dominated .the play in their homecoming game with Newman of Mason City and picked up their second victory of the year, 16-0. Four turnovers and seve n penalties by the Indians prevented what could have become a route as the defense played an outstanding game and held the visitors to only 24 yards on the ground. Titonka took the opening kickoff and made one of their best offensive drives of the year as they moved 48 yards to the Neman 29 in 12 plays. A pass from Paul Heyer to Jeff Loeschen put the ball on the 14, and Heyer hit Eugene Zwiefel for the TD on the next play, but the ball was called back because JUNIOR GIRL SCOUTS The first Junior Girl Scout meeting was held Monday, Sept. 23.

A pitchout to Gary Goetz moved the ball to the 4, and Heyer went around right end on a keeper for the score. Goetz ran tne conversion to give Titonka an 8-0 lead with 6:23 to play In the quarter. Neither team was able to put an offense together as Newman ran two series and the Indians had one try before ithe period ended. Mid way through the second quarter, Dave Ataesbury picked off a Newman aerial to give the Indians excellent field position on the Knights 28. However, it didn't prove too advantageous as Newman took -an Indian pass and moved out .to the 44. Both teams were forced to punt on 4th down on their next series after running only three plays. With the ball i n Newman's possession on the Tyke 46, Goetz intercepted a long pass and returned it to the Tyke 28. A hold and an illegal procedure penalty stopped the Indians drive as the half ended. The Indians missed a great scoring opportunity in the third period when Roy Budlong recovered a Newman fumble on the 12. A 15 yard penalty moved the ball back to the 24, and after two passes failed, the Indians tried a 36 yard field Plan Public Hearing On Livestock Laws The interim Livestock Laws Study Committee of the Iowa General Assembly will hold a public hearing October 4 at 9:30 a.m. in the Garrigan High School gymnasium in Algona. The committee is chaired by Senator Roger Shaff, and has been directed to submit appropriate bill drafts relating to the following subject areas: 1. The mandatory marking (whether or not branding) of livestock for identification pur poses and disease source tracing, 2. The exemption of livestock sales agencies .auction barns, etc.) from liability under implied warranty provisions of the uniform commercial code. 3. The mandatory use and possession of state-issued permits when transporting livestock on the highways of Iowa. 4. The provisions of Senate File 1'310 introduced in the 1974 Session. ' Because of .the importance of these issues to everyone engaged in the raising, buying, selling, and transporting of livestock, the comlmittee desires to have the recommendations and comments of every person affected. Everyone engaged in the livestock industry is urged to attend. The Kossuth County Extension Service has been asked to help publicize the public hearing to interested livestock producers and those in related livestock businesses. This information was made available by Larry Burch, legal counsel of Iowa Legislative Council, State House, Des Moines. goal that sailed wide. It looked as if Newman might be able to take advantage of Titonka mistakes as they recovered a fumbled punt, but the Tyke defense held .them to 5 yards and they had to punt again. Tyke picked up two 1st downs on their next series and moved 34 yards in nine plays to the Newman 35 when the quarter ended. Wtih only a yard gain on a 4th and 3 situation, ithe Knights took over early in the final quarter. It shouldn't happen, but the alert play of Roy Budlong at right defensive end, picked off his second pitch-out of the year and went 30 yards for the TD with 10:25 to play in the game. Heyer's run for the Indians held a 16-0 lead. Budlong stood out once again On the next series as he dumped the Newman runner on consecutive plays to set up a 4th and 22 situation.
