PAGE TWO. NO. 2 OF A OENTENNtAl, YEAR SEttfES t The Farmers of Kossuth County Andrew L. Godfredsen Going north on Highway 169, about .Similes from town, you pass Andy Godfrcdscn's place. You'll know it by the handsome front yard, and the bis; sheep barn. And if you see Andy you'll know him by the cigar in his mouth. The Oodfredsen's formerly lived south of Algonn, and moved to their present place in 1945 There are six children in the family—3 married daughters, and 3 sons, one of whom, Lowell, is back on the farm after a three- year hitch in Uncle Sam's Navy. Andy figures on go- .ing into hogs with 36 brood sows and says he thinks we'll'have a couple of years of good prices—bill like all good Iowa farmers he says "Let's taki- it easy." IOWA FACTS One-fourth of the highest grade farm land of the United States is within the borders of the state of Iowa. This bank is always ready to give you the "highest grade" banking service — no matter what your needs may be. IOWA RALPH MILLER, President HAROLD GILMORK, Cashier HOY McMAIION, Asst. Cashier WEEDS! Kill Out All of These Weeds With n WEEDICID€" Just by Spraying Bindweed Plantain Jap Honeysuckle Poison Ivy Sow Thistle White Clover Dandelion Sumac Canada Thistle I'ifjweetl Ragweed duckweed Purslane Lambs Quarters Hound Leaved Mallow Quick Facts About Weedicide: • Does not injure or stain hands, fabrics, or driveways. • Non-inflammable—non-explosive. • Relative tow loxicity to humans and animals. • Non-corrosive to spray equipment. Certain chemicals are produced by plants in the leaves and carried down to the roots as food. Thompson's Oee-Cee-Pee Weedicide has similar characteristics and in like manner is carried to the roots where it is destructive rather than sustaining. Do not expect weeds to wilt the moment you spray them. There may he no change in appearance for four or five days. Some weeds may requite four to six weeks after application for a complete kill. Eventually, a yellowish tinge will appear at the edges of'the foliage, followed by grey, then finally turning to brown when destruction is complete. Thompson s Dee-Cee-Pee AVeedicide kills selectively. It is not a universal panacea. It will leave some species unaffected. It will also kill some weeds and grasses at one period of the year and not at others. For these reasons, instructions for use should be carefully followed. c Half $ 9 Gallon Get "Weedicide" at KOHLHAAS HARDWARE ALGONA STRING OF VICTORIES, 5 TOO St. John's of Bancroft won the district baseball prep school tournament last week at Titorika.

ACADEMY WINS, 4 TO 1; TRIPLE PLAY EXECUTED The St. Cecelia nine ,eot revenge on Emmctsburg Catholic high, Sunday afternoon, by a score of 4 to 1, on the local diamond. Feature of the game, however, came from the visitors. With two men on base, Buscher of Alpona sent a liner over second base that looked uood for a double, at least. The Emmetsburg second siicker went into the air, speared the drive with one hand, came down stepcing on second, and whipped the horsehide to first where the triple play was executed, retiring the side. Gordon Winkel was on the mound for Algona and only two hits, only one of them going into the outfield. Winkel, White, the 'two Winters and Bupcher each contributed safe blows during the contest. Thursday, -the Academy nine plays Whittcmorc high, there, and next Sunday goes to St. Joe for another contest. FOR CAR SHOPPERS New 10-minute parking zones established on State street in Algona resulted in the handing put of several tickets by city police, last week. But the police call attention to the fact that the new .zones are intended as an aid to' shoppers and are not intended as "ticket traps" for motorists. However, to emphasise the 10-mfnute restriction, tickets were handed out to some 30 motorists who over- parked. Zones for Shoppers The new zones are as follows: four at the corner of State and Thorington, four at. Stale and Dodge, four at State-and Moore, 12 in all. Motorists can identify them by the fact that the curb is painted bright orange, and black lettering states they are 10-minute zones. Three were fined May 9, one dollar each, for over-parking, but the police want the public to use the parking spaces as they arc intended—as a help rather than a hindrance in shopping — but don't park in them longer than ten minutes. Mayor Court Cases Cases in the court of Mayor Frank Kohlhaas in the past few days included the following: Everett Knudsen, 10 days in jail, charged witn drunkenness, May 7. Cotton Vicherman, $1 fine and costs, going through a school stop sign, May 8. Jos. E. Kobruger, $2 and costs, charged with reckless driving, May 0. Harvey Geilenfeld, Frank Creel and Dick Norton, $1 fine each, overparking in 10-minute zone, May 9. Alex Reefer, fines of $15 each, one on a charge of drunkenness, and a second on a charge of disturbing the peace, and also a 30- day suspended sentence in jail. Reefer was thrown out of two local taverns, and police were waiting for him at the second one.
