Twelve Pages —Two Sections VOL. 81—NO. 21 Railroad Strike Not Too Tough On Algona Area A quick survey reveals that Alftona and the surrounding territory were not seriously handicapped as a result of the rail- roM strike last week. The postoffice was taking: care of most *f Its first class And parcel 'post mall through their Star routes with passenger bus drivers helping out in emergencies. •The express company placed an embargo on all items Friday moraine, btit it was released again Monday morning. Telephone offices had a heavy Increase In long distance calls. A few out-of-town persons were briefly stranded In the city, but managed soon to be on their way by bus. One local merchant was delayed in Chicago, but made It home by way of Minneapolis and a bus to Armstrong where he was met by car. Livestock dealers, Caught with full pens, rerouted their animals by truck, without damage, but not wiUtout some confusion. . Buying was brisk at all grocery stores, when it looked as though stocks might not be replenished right away. But, the rain might have been a contributing cause, as many shopped Friday and buying was slower on Saturday. However, the whistling of trains was a welcome sound Saturday night, and there were sighs of relief Monday as mall came through regularly again. ALGONA K.C.

It would look as though 'Oov. Bob Blue would be renomin- ialed over Gen. Olmsted on the republican ticket and will make the ifiRht with Frank Miles, democrat, 'in the fall. Ot course Congressman Dollivcr ;has no opposition in the primary for congress 'but will have to face Oscar Johnson, democrat, of Hancock county, in the fall. No dice. Chas. Patterson o£ Algona will opposition in the primary for the republican nomination for representative and in the fall he will have to face Casey Loss, who has no opposition .for the democrat nomination for this office. Everyone seems to -think that this may develop into a "hoss race the 'fall election. Fight for Treasurer. There seems -to be a hot fight on for the democratic nomination for county treasurer. Wm. Barry and Rosella Voight are competitors for Ihe democratic nomination and Ed Chambers is unopposed for the republican nomination for that important office. Miss Voight has been in the court house for several years and has proved her efficiency, and the other candidates are high class men. Art Cogley, present sheriff, is opposed for the democratic nomination for that office by Marc Moore, both 'good men, but it has been proved that the popular incumbent is a hard man to beat. The republicans have no candidate. Battle for County Attorney. But then there is the fight for the nomination .for county attorney with the winner in some doubt Capt. "Bob" Harrington, just back from a sojourn of several years in Persia he served with the V". S. forces, is opposed by H. W. Miller, the present popular county attorney for the republican nomination, and the winner will be op • posed in the 'fall, 'by Attorney Harold McNertney, a former Bancroft young man, now practicing law in Algona. . Unopposed county candidates are Coimty, Auditor .-; (Leo ...., Immerfall, " .. W. .E. McDonald, on the democrat ticket, and Clerk of Courts Helen White. Delia Welter and Col. Jack Johnston 'for Justices have proved so popular that they have no opposition and will be returned to office with a whoop. In the minor offices there is a contest for assessor in ' Garfield township with Mike S. Coyle and Francis Wolfe, both democrats, after the office. County Prepares for First Peacetime Memorial Day HALLIGAN SPEAKS HERE IN MORNING, 4-H Members Discuss A Safety Bull Pen A meeting of the Algona 4-H club was held Monday evening al the home of 'Howard Schoby.

Laurltzen, Lloyd Wellendorf, and Ralph Morgan hooked onto that still-unknown monster fish at Spirit Lake on the evening of Wednesday, May 15, they were likely unaware of the fact that the ensuing adventure would iput them smack into the "Hall of Fishing Fame." And little did they realize that their experience would provoke endless guessing on the part of Iowa citizens as to what kind of fish it was. Harlan Miller of "Over the Coffee" fame, wrote in his Des Moines Register column that it was either a sturgeon that had come overland from the Mississippi, or perhaps a mermaid. Opinions of local fishing enthusiasts .ranged from Moby Dick catfish to paddlefish of an unheard-of size. One character ventured the guess that it might have been one of those still- missing German submarines. The story of Spirit Lake's monster fish is apparently big news in the Spirit Lake area, also, as O. E. Smith, Publisher and Editor of the Spirit Lake Beacon, drove to Algona in person to borrow the picture engravings that •were used to announce the extraordinary news here a week ago. LUVERNE IN P. M. Throughout the county preparations are being made for the first peacetime Memorial day since 1941. ' In Algona the program will be under the direction Of the VFW of which Fred W. Plumb is commander.

At the cemetery cererrtonies will start at 10, a. m. with the Rev.. Gilbert J. Kuyper giving the invocation, followed by placing of wreaths... ' ' '., Jaycees and Lions To Play Kittenball 'The Joycees and. Lions club will tangle in a kittenball game Friday, May 31, at the .fairgrounds. The game will start at 6 o'clock, and • the admission is free. Some years ago there was considerable interest in soft ball and several teams were playing. One of the memorable 'games was between the Rotary and Kiwanis clubs, and a high spot of the game was when one of the Rotarians made a daring slide for home which was a masterpiece, even though he did go most of the way on his shoulder. . ^ ^ Fire At Vipond Farm Does $1000 Damage Fire, thought to have started from a laundry stove, caused about $1000 damage last Tuesday to the house on the Lloyd Vipond farm now occupied by one of the Vipond sons. Only a large quantity of water in a supply tank on the farm savec} the house from total destruction. Firemen wearing gas masks fought through an inferno of steam and smoke for about an hour to bring the blaze under control, RITES FOR MOMYER HELD ON FRIDAY The sudden death of C. A. Momyer at his home last Wednesday shocked his many old friends, who perhaps did not realize his delicate condition, arising from a 'hear trouble which had slowed him : down in business for the past year or; so. "He .moved here:from Albia/IJa.T, arid bought the M. P.-' Haggard''ab- stract business. He had served as county recorder in Monroe county, and later owned an abstract business there. Mr. and Mrs. Momyer and their fine family of two tooys and two girls—Mrs. Margaret Colt, now of Evanston, 111., and Chester Jr., of Chicago, and John and Maxine, who lately have been the mainstays of their father's abstract business in Algona, have enjoyed the esteem of the Alona community for years. "Chet" Momyer had a high rating as an honest, industrious business man, who was ever ready to stand for the decencies of life and who had the respect of all who knew him. He was a member of the Congregational church and was a high ranking Mason. "Chefs" main relaxation for many years was found on the golf course and his game was above the average for a man of his age. He will be remembered most kindly by many of his old golfing associates, who could 'depend upon him always to report his score correctly. Goodbye "Chet," we will miss you. The funeral was held at the 'ongregational church on Friday with Rev. Clyde giving the sermon. The rites at the grave were conducted by the Masonic lodge and the burial was made in Riverview cemetery. The pallbearers were Albin Spongberg, Lynn Keith, E. J. Van Ness, A. L. Long, D. D. Paxson and D. D. Monlux. ..The. ?? ; --£V'"-??"»'C'£'K- leakerrbfithe' , V ^?TJ~"nf«rt« 7 '-^i Use Care.
