Ip 20-7 fflRlIM Hampton high school kept its f 1946 football retord Intact* last '• Friday evening at Athletic Park, 5 and toppled the Algona^Bulldogs v from the undefeated class, 20 to 6.

Waldron Returned to the 20. After three fruitless plays the Bulldogs kicked, and Hampton began to fdlj. Combining passes and plunges with end sweeps, the Visitors rolled down to the Algona eight. Crapser, injured, was removed from the Algona lineup.! On the .third play thereafr ter) Hampton slashed at left end fofi a .touchdown and converted via; a pass, to lead 7-0. ' A Costly Fumble ; Hampton"* again kicked off, a short boot, with Algona down- Ingjit on the 38. Two plays later, Algona fumbled, Hampton recovered on the Algona 33, and took the; pigskin "down for anothei easy touchdown, on the, first plaj after start of the second period Their conversion effort failed. '. Biit then the Bulldogs revived. Evidently the pre-gume dope on Hampton had the bbys a hit under-Confident. ' But the visitors proved to be human, and not supermen, and while they exh'H" ed the best football team opposing Algona thus far this season, they '-.were not invincible, but a spot of 13 points is a lot in any ball game. Aided by a well-mixed assort-? ment of plays, end a timely penalty against Hampton, the Bulldogs took the oval to the five. One play, a forward and lateral following, accounted for considerable yardage in this sequence of downs. With the ball on the five, Young tallied. The attempt for the point was a failure. FOOTBALL SEATING IS ENTIRELY INADEQUATE For the third 'straight home game, local fans sloshed around in mud, last Friday evening, making the best of inadequate seating. .The lack of bleacher seats is not new; it has existed for some years. It is time something was done to remedy the 7 situation, if not this season, then by planning for next year.

But a second later a pass was intercepted 'by Hampton, the visitors bringing it back to the center of the field. It was 'Hamptons turn and they marched deep into-VUgona territory but at the crucial moment, Waldron inter, cepted a pass on his own three and ran it back for 15 yards. And here, Algona showed the prettiest offensive drive of the night. From their own 15 the Bulldogs slashed, crashed, and passed down "to the Hampton 30. During the struggle for yardage, Stephenson, sturdy Algona back, had to be removed with an ankle injury and was out the rest of the fray. On the 30, however, the Bulldogs elected to try a flat pass over the line. Hampton intercepted, and had the ball on their own 30, as the third quarter ended. . Weaken Toward Finish That was the end-of the game, offensively for, Algona. As the folirth quarter wore on, with Stephenson out of the game, Crapser struggling valiantly on a garne leg, and with the team short of reserves, Hampton be. gan to wear down the locals rapidly, and scored again with a line plunge,' and then ran the ball over right 'end for the extra point, -.},'•-..,.'.•;.;> ••••'.•; . • ; - ' In; all, Hampton chalked up H first downs to 9 for Algona, and that--- '-*—' •--•••-«-•-•• of t! was about ^jje ccrnpsrison Bown In'Ww it; was a gpod game, and one that the no ; and BJaok need feel a.

Albert Lea, which during the reaular season had several Kossuth players on its team, was a bit more effective at bat than was Bancroft, and that was the ball game. 1 Walt and Johnny Menke, who played with Albert Lea during the regular season, were in the Bancroft lineup for the tilt. Tony Schneider, another Bancroft boy, hurled for Albert Lea for five innings. Don Blanchard, Lone Rock, playing w'ith Albert Lea, smacked 1 a homeirun off Hatten in the fifth.

Orders Corn Here For South Africa If you don't think The Algona Upper Des Moines gets 'around, read this story! Gene Hood, who represents the DeKalb Hyibrid Seed Corn Co. in this area, recieved a letter from one L. Scott Pearson, from Port Elizabeth, South Africa, enclosing a 'bank draft for $15 and ordering that much DeKalb seed of what^ .ever variety would grow good in South Africa, " : . iHow iMr. Pearson ran across Mr. Hood's name Is still a mystery, but s the supposition is ;that some wandering soldier or sailor with 8"'ijppy of the .paper must h^ve l 'run across Pearson and folds him of the Bonders of 'hybrid cprn, and 'among other '•, things' the Re* •Kalb ad. >•>;•.;.;.'•;-'•.; At any mie^s pearson ad-r dressed the lejtefc'tQ the.De, Kalb Co,.

(Note: In the southern hemisphere, the seasons are reversed from our own.)" Gene has the bank draft, and is taking the matter up with company officials. His idea is that majjbe the South African should be forwarded some of all 57 varieties of seed grown toy the company, "In .fact," said Gene, "I wouldn't mind making personal delivery of that corn. I've always wondered what South Africa was like," How good 'is your credit? Probably quite excellent — most of the 24,000 names on file in the offices of the Credit Bureau of Kossuth county are. But for the few who occasionally fail to pay their accounts on time or are bad credit risk, the 140 members of the Bureau have instant access to full information on the subject. • To ourselves it seems that keeping records on 24,000 people is quite a job, and it is. But dont get the idea that the folks in the Credit Bureau are a crew of.tmalicious snoopers — they aren't. To them, you are merely a name. But when your own personal business handling is carried out in a business-like manner, you get credit for handling affairs as they should be handled. In the course of keeping their records in shape, the Credit Bureau people know if Uncle Charlie left you $1,000 in his will, if you get that long overdue promotion, how much that new home cost you, if your name has been posted for a delinquency in taxes, whether or not you have been sued, and whether or not you . pay your bills promptly or let them slide for- '60. or 90 days. Their interest .is purely imper- ''' ........... NORMAN BEST sonal,; however, va'n '-*' from any of ;the 'business or • professional men \ in this area who are members of the Bureau and may desire it. The Credit Bureau of Kossuth county, located at 10V4 North Dodge St., is a member of the Associated Credit Bureaus of America, which has 1327 members. If you move away, your credit records will probably ,fol-[ low you. If you've just moved here, information about you can be obtained in short order. Members of the local bureau are store owners, banks, hotels, real estate firms, finance companies, hospitals, doctors, dentists, lawyers, newspapers and many others. The Credit Bureau 'of Kossuth county has members not only in , Mrs. Louis Gade, shown above, is the chief file and'bulletin clerk in the 1 office of the Credit Bureau of KossuSh county. In her hands are the files on nearly every adult in the county, and information as dling of money matters and bill payments. $110,031 GIVEN BY PUBLIC TO AID IN50BEDUNIT The subscription drive for funds to insure construction of a Sisters of Mercy hospital in Algona went over the top Monday. A total of $110,031 had becrf pledged Monday morning, A. H. Borchardt, treasurer of the volunteer committee, stated. Monday afternoon $905 more was turned in from Whittemore, and several other local donations were on their way today. Mrs. Edna M. Smith of Algona contributed $1,000. Previous donations of $1,000 or more were listed in this paper last week. Can Still Contribute The sum of $100,000 was sought as the community's portion of the project. The Sisters of Mercy have agreed tp underwrite a bond issue for $200,000 and a federal grant of $100,000 will be sought to provide the total of $400,000. This sum is the Sisters estimate of what a 50 bed hospital will cost, at present building costs, fully equipped with the latest and most modern conveniences, and ready to receive patients. However, anyone who has not contributed and desires ..' lo do so still may, Mr. Bor- 1 chardt said. Checks can be / mailed to him as treasurer of the volunteer committee. In the meantime it was also : learned that architect's drawings and plans for the new hospital are nearing completion. When construction might start will depend on how soon mater- ' ials in sufficient quantity become available. Hope at the , present time is to start construction in 1947, or 1948 at the latest. r Building Cost Facts '.From Dr. Edmund G. fZimmer-K er, director of the state .hospitalf'",: survey recently concluded,; conies;!; somejpertinent infpirmatiph"as;loft costs of ^hospital Hcopstji '" "" Algona towns, but in all surrounding including West Bend, J.

If you shop in Des Moines, Mason City or^ Fort Dodge you can be sure your credit record is known there. It may even be obtained by long distance while you're in the store, and you are unaware of the fact. And according to Norman Best, manager of the local Credit Bureau, of the 24,000 names which he supervises, compara- ;ively few have the "poor" ratings of "C" or "F," The "C" rating means your account is hard to collect. The "F" rating means you may be a writer of bad checks or liable to write checks with insufficient funds. The entire setup is one which really pays the good credit risk a reward for his or her honesty and promptness in taking C»re of financial obligations. You may not know it, but your credit rating is a real prize if it's good, Right now when times are pretty good, there is comparatively little trouble in collecting debts.
