Putting the ball into play with a'free kick, the large Algona delegation still had .hopes, but Clear Lake proceeded to make another drive that couldn't be stopped, and a Lake back skirted left end .for a 35-yard run to ;near Algona's. goal, where plung- ; es took it over.

Mark The hospital fund, to be used in construction of a-Sisters of Mercy hospital here, passed the $121,000 mark this week, A. H. Borchardt, treasurer of the drive said. ». ' He added that contributions are still being received and', will ;'be •welcomed. ,They,, can,;be/,]mader:to_ •'•• -Funds received are being depol;- it'ed -in the local'banks and will re^: main there. until the' 'hospital, is constructed, and then will be paid out directly, to contractors to apply on construstioh costs, he added. Committee members wish to call the attention of the general public to the fact that the coming vote for a $100,000 bond issue which would be used to build a county.hospit- al, if the vote has. a majority, has nothing to do.with-the Sis- •'. ters project. The Sisters -pro- .'.•" ject is a separate proposition, ,' and calls for construction- of a $400,000 hospital: of 50 beds. : : The county-hospital vote, is-pii'- another hospital to . bo .'• built from a $100,000 bond issue arid maintained, .if necessary thereafter, by yearly tax levies. The Sisters order agreed several months ago to assume a bonded indebtedness of $200,000 themselves, if the community would raise $100,000 for the hospital. A federal grant of $100,000 is- also being sought, -when federal funds for hospital construction are made available and Iowa receives its share.

Indications are that a tremendous vote will lurn out, Tuesday, Nov. S, in the general election, with a hotly contested governc&ship race heading the state campaign, and a controversial mailer of a $100,000 bond issue for a county hospital stimulating local interest. Mr. Miles, democratic candidate for governor, comes .here from Forest City, where he speaks Wednesday noon, and he will speak at Humboldt, Thursday noon. Has Fine Service Record Miles himself is probably one of the most personally popular candidates for the governorship in some years. He served in both World Wars and for 23 years was editor of "The Iowa Legionaire." Chief points of his campaign to date have been based on sharp criticism of the present state policy of increasing the huge state, treasury surplus instead of lowering tax burdens, of management of state institutions . and lack of a co-ordinated state program to help ease the housing shortage for veterans and others. The republican candidate for re-election, Robert Blue, has had comparatively say.
