Jack Ott, Clear Lake back, sneaked through the line for the Lake score, and Henriksen, a Clear Lake tackle, ran for the extra point, standing up, after circling right end. Clear Lake's tally, however, came as the result of a bad pass from center ejirly iri the quarter. The ball sailed over the Algona backfield and was recovered deep in Algona territory by Clear Lake. The touchdown followed, Algona's drive, on the other hand, resulted from hard-driving; football and was definitely earned. • .In first downs; the locals tallied three to two for Clear Lake.

However, he added that so long as there are not enough Americans available to fill necessary jobs,- every effort would be.made to provide.prison- ers for jobs they can handle, if applications are properly made. In the case of farm labor, applications must be handled and approved through the county agent's office, and for any industrial help, through the U. S. Employment Service. This setup is one that is imposed on camp authorities by higher officials, and is one they must adhere by.

B. John- .ston, who listened . to the case, fined George $4.20 costs, and gave him a suspended sentence of 30 days in jail on receiving a promise that hereafter the Pentecost home life will be more peaceful and sober.

This privilege includes both state arid non-state residents. Actually, such privileges were supposed to stop with the end -of the war, but as Congress has not offically accepted or declared peace, the situation is one of the usual foul-up on that score.
