Decreased Sugar, rewer Coca-Colas Coca-Cola drinkers will have to cut down during July and probably for some time because there ust won't be enough cokes to go iround. Curtailment of the sugar supply means' a cut-back in the production of Coca-Cola because the manufacturers do not use substi- ;ute sweetening agencies. However, an equitable system of ra- ionlng will be maintained in Algona during the shortage, R. C. Bellows, owner of the Mineral Springs Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Humboldt, says. The OPA announced recently that the allotment of sugar to industrial users would be cut to 5C percent of that used in hte third quarter of 1941, effective July 1 Your house will STAY WHITE if painted with DUPONT HOUSE PAINT This paint is made with the whitest of white pigments—titanium dioxide.

During the five years .previous there were lib branch schools and before that, the numbers varied, including as many as eight schools in the state in ones summer. College ruling states that no school may be operated in the same place two consecutive years. The majority of students going to college in Algona's high school will take positions in rural schools this fall. In fact, most of them, including those who have never taught, have signed contracts already. A few students will be entering graded schools as elementary teachers. Courses offered those taught elementary school children—geography, history, language and literature, art, industrial arts, spelling and mathematics. Educational psychology, rural school management, elementary school methods —the how's «nd why's of teaching •nathematics and social science— lealth, first aid and physical education also are required.

In her flock of 70 goslings, Mrs. Edward Bonner of near Lamoni, has one that arrived at the farm home equipped with a spare webbed foot. The fact that Iowa was destined to have heavy spring rains might have something to do with this phenomenon. Unusual. Peas planted in late March in the garden of Wilbur Carr in Garner have now reached a heighth of 45 inches with pods on the vines just forming. The vines have attained such growth that it has been found necsesary to train them .on frames and poles. In these days of scarce pork, pig rustling activities have attracted the notice of the FBI to the niegh- borhoods of Marcus and Battle Creek. The last theft was 125 12- weeks old pigs from the farm of Dr. H. H. Harris of Battle Creek. Sheriffs of Woodbury and Ida counties'are working on ,the case in conjunction with Edgar Hoover's boys. They got their men in the previous Marcus incident. One morning recently after a rain, Dr. M. T. Morton of Estherville, while on his way downtown noticed fish on the sidewalk, and other fish swimming in several inches of water ip the gutter. The fish were average-sized minnows*. A crowd soon gathered and began speculation whether there was truth in the belief of some people that it sometimes rains fish.
