Monday. A dark rainy day made the going a little damp. The season lasts for three weeks, ending Nov. 17. Six hours of shooting will be allowed daily. Three cock pheasants may- be shot daily with a possession limit of six cock birds. Shooting of hens is forbidden. While Kossuth is listed as one of the best of the 59 counties in northern Iowa for pheasant population, reports from rural sources prior to tihe season indicated that the pheasant population here is much smaller than in. previous years. Rooms Hotels Full Local hotels, homes' with spare rooms, cabin camps and even farm houses with spare quarters, were bulging at .the seams with pheasant hunters today. Pictured above is the first architect's drawing of the new 50-be'd Sisters of Mercy hospital, to be erected in Algona. While the final construction plans may be altered from the above, as this is'only the 'irst draft, it gives a pretty fair idea of the size and general type of juilding the new structure will be. . It is hoped that construction can begin in 1947, and not later than 1948. If basic items of the construction business loosen up a little in the next few months, as is expected, construction should start next year. • ,?. Local building material firms say that some items of heavy construction seem to be more plentiful, .but steel girders, plumbing fixtures and equipment and soil pipe-remain among the scarce products. This hospital will definitely be built. It should not be confused with the forthcoming vote on the question of a Kossuth county hospital, Nov. 5. The Sisters hospital is going to be built regardless .of, the outcome of that vote. Voters will 'be asked to decide on another hospital, county-owned and county-operated, and financed if successful in passing by issuance of $100,000 in bonds. . .... 'l,u Verne community, On Aug.

ALGONA GRIDDERS Lu Verne Woman, Bancroft Main Win Letter Contest A poetic entry won first prize in the recently concluded letter-writ- in contest on the subject of "Why I Like Algona." iMrs- Hollis. Wilson of LuVerne was awarded the first prize of $15 for- her entry. Second Place' and a $10 award went tP Gerald Angus of Bancroft, and third prize of $5 went to Mary Louise Pedersen of Algona. One story came from Donna Jean Engstrom of Los Angeles, who left here about 12 years ago. , The first prize entry, unanimous choice pf the Chamber of Commerce Judges became of its originality and 'full 'body of content, was as follows: "Why We Like Ateona." is the place to go, Whether you're shopping or to a show, are friendly and greet wHu a 'smile Algona's customers jnany a jnile. come there are things you cannot sit down and start to fret; 4m! go to A18W.

His second-place letter follows: "We Ijke Algona because grandfather liked it, and father likes it Liking Algona has become traditional with., us who are the third generation ' because Algona has e long tradition for honesty, quality merchandise, service and personal warmth -towards its customers, ''Although we've been thrilled by 'bigger cities. is hard to find it can prices the most teeonomicgl {dace to * 4W1^ i when, you're be. ^d. and go we laved to AJ-» beat.

The score just about tells the story. Clarion rushed over three touchdowns in the first quarter and was. leading at the half 32 to 0. For a few minutes near the close of the first half the Algona team looked like its old self, but the flame soon died out. It must be noted that the victors were doped as one of the two strong teams in the conference When the season opened, got away to a slow start, but have been coming fast and are now about as strong as anything m the loop. Near, the close of the game, with plenty of Clarion sivbs in the fray, Algona scored its lone tally. Next Friday night the Lakes Conference leaders, Spencer, will play here in a home game, and on Nov. 11 Humboldt winds jp the season with a conference tilt on the Algona gridiron. W L EIGHT FINED FIRST DAY OF SEASON Before dusk, Monday, five hunters had been arrested and fined for various hunting violations. Raymond F. Devine, Algona, was fined $20 and costs tot carrying two assembled guns in a car. George Thorson, Swea Cily r 'was fined $10 and costs for carrying an assembled gun in a car. Julius Lentsch, Ledyard, was fined $25 and costs for shooting at a pheasant out of a car. He missed the pheasant. •Fred Sligman and Ivan Gushing, both of Fqnion, were each fined $10 and costs for carrying assembled guns in a car.

And with the influx of hunters came a goodly number of state conservation officers to augment the local men. While pheasant hunting is the chief sport at the moment, the duck season also opened last Saturday and will run for 45 days, and the result is that hunters have a dual possibility of bring--' ing back a bag full. ,.--.Jj.^ "No Hunting" Signs Farmers in this county, however, have indicated no willingness to have their fields invaded without proper authorization. "No hunting" signs are up in many sections. Many farmers said this did not mean they, would prevent anyone from hunting on their land, but they intended to be asked first, and know who was out in the fields. The fact that corn picking isn't far away, and that careless hunters in the rows can easily ruin a lot of corn, was another reason for the posting, which seems to be more prevalent than in former years, No sunrise and sunset sched-i ules are required for pheasant, hunters who will toe allowed to, ' hunt from 10 a. m. to 4 p. m, daily during the season, The two chief violations that will be watched for, conservation officers said, would fee: 1—Over-possession of cocks, or possession of any hens, and 2-£arrying assembled op, loaded guns in cars, A Hunters Breakfast Sweddjng the local crowds ,.„„ be hundreds of returned service*' men who will be getting 'their first chance at a favorite, peace* time sport.
