Algona played a good game, and a deliriously happy crowd swamped the floor and team after the game. , • To try and select an outstanding player in basketball is rather foolish.; It takes five, men to make a team. -However, Allen's play was sparkling most of the time, while Butts and Crapser performed notably in general defensive: play tinder the basket, and in offense as well. Howie Stephcnson's point total .wasn't large, but it was his feeding of the ball, at the right-time and his sucking out of the defense that made possible '.more than ti one Algona field goal.

The,firm handles Chevrolet cars. In the meantime, a complete de- scnlpUon ol the new fire zone is carried in an official city legal no- lice to be found elsewhere in this issue. Tho new ordinance considerably widens the business district. in effect ill means that frame buildings now in the district can remain as they are, but that any new buildings in the area must conform to the ordinance. It also prohibits the moving of any frame building in the area from one sJte to anoth r _ er site in the new fire zone. This angle of the ordinance stopped « plan of Frank Vera, whereby 'he intended to move u >house he recently purchased on the corner of No. Dodge St. and Call St. ,to the rcf» of the lot, facing Dodge, and erect a garage on the corner, He can still erect the garage, but cannot move the frame building as planned. It can fee moved completely off the lot, but not placed on the back end of the building. Mr. Vera said he would probably live in the house now. Originally the garage he intended to build was to be occupied by the Kirk Auto Co., local Buick and Sludebaker distributors. City councilman held the final reading on the mew ordinance last Friday, They expressed regret that in passing the ordinance it might conflict with some viewpoints, but pointed out that Algona's present business section is like a barrel with tight 'Staves—no possibility of expansion despite an obvious need for it. The ordinance actually outlines a new. expanded business section.

Hjelle have "not only helped us out during a serious teacher shortage but have been a definite value to the school because of their outlook on life. and . their high caliber of characters." .In the above picture, Rev. Paul H, Bcckman," left, and Rev. 'talk it Charles .Patterson, prominent Kossuth citizen, who recently retired fro mf arming, will be a republican candidate for state representative from Kossuth county.

Hjcllc's office between classes. To insure that their own church work is not interfered with, the men teach morning classes only. Rev. Beckman is pastor of the Evangelical church and Rev. Phillips is pastor of: the Methodist church. ., ' • Taught Three Years. Each has taught about three years. Rev. Phillips teaches mathematics. He .is an aeaden)ic •graduate of Penn colege, QskiK loosa.'-in addition tp ; , his ^ 1 ^^' . graduated front at LeMars, in addition,: to taking his theological courSes. Each has been in Lu Verne about, three years, each is married, and Rev. Phillips has a family of two children, both in school, while Rev. Beckman's boy .and girl are not yet of school age. Supt: Hjelle said that three years ago the teacher shortage was so bad that he did notjuiow how school classes could be carried on. Ht hit on a happy solution and .called upon the newly arrived ministers to help out. "We arranged the classes so that \ve could cooperate. to, give them plenty of leeway, \ so their church work is not neglected," explained Supt. Hjelle. • Both ministers say .they have enjoyed • teaching, and,, pointed out that they have been, enabled to come in, much closer touch with young people than would have otherwise have been the case. Make Church Improvements In addition to their regular church and school duties, each pastor has been instrumental in church .improvements. Rev. Beckman was instrumental in putting in a church basement in his spare time, and Rev. Phil- Jips' church is undergoing the same improvement now. In addition, both preachers have helped out on neighborhood farms in past harvest seasons, as needed. Supt. Hjelle, who, is now in his sixth year at Lu Verne, three of them as superintendent, can well feel pleased with the solution of the : teaching problem worked out .at Lu Verne, and both ministers 'are of the opinion that their w k . with , the stu* dents has been of definite value tp them in a religious sense and from the, standpoint of youth, un- derstandtog, = .

Reynolds, above, son of Mrs. Bernice Reynolds of Algona, last week, when he received an army bronze star award and a citation from General Krucger's command in the Pacific. Sgt. Reynolds, subject of our weekly sketch, ils now out of the service. He and his wife, the former Norma Payne, are living in the Miller apartments on North Phillips St. The citation just received reads as follows: "For meritorious achievement in connection with military operations against the enemy on Luzon . . . Sgt. Reynolds, while occupying a direct fire artillery command post, efficiently performed the duties normally expected of officers when officers were not available. On several occasions this soldier operated the command post and directed f>ire against the enemy duiing the absence of officers. On one occasion, he and another soldier computed firing data and directed enemy fire to silence an enemy battery. The superior manner in which Sgt. Reynolds performed his duties' is in keeping with the highest traditions of service and reflects great credit on himself and the. military, service." Jesse went into the army Dec. 15, 1942, and overseas in August of 1043, serving in Australia, New. Guinea, Biak, .Luzon . and in the Japanese occupation army for four 4 DIVORCES HERE AS COURT GRINDS Four divorces were granted in Kossuth district court, in the past few days, two of 4he cases involving ex-service men.

Lakota hieh school's girl team went through the district tournament at Gruver, last week end, defeating Cylinder in the first round, and downing Gruver in the district final, 26 to 25. The game nearly ended in a riot when a scorer gave Gruver a last second basket on the scorebook by error, giving Gruver the game. Coaches, onlookers, and others who had been following the contest point by point, however, finally settled the matter correctly. Gruver was ahead at the half, 15 to 13. K. Murray was the spark plug of the Lakota offense, tallying eight field goals. Coach and Supt. 3. W. Cook used a total of 12 girls to take the game. In honor of the Lakota team, Ed Thaves of Alffona and Mrs. Thavcs are to be hosts, this evening (Tuesday), at the Chrome Cafe, to the Lakota team, coach and sponsor, at a victory dinner. Lakota, as might be expected, was in a state of wild excitement this week, and preparations were already underway to send practically the entire .population to support the girls in the state meet.
