Henry picked his way to the Kossuth county championship at the Mike Loss farm, last Friday, while his brother came in fourth. Then last Monday, afr Garner, Ernest reversed the situation and walked off with the district championship. And the joke of It is, that Ernest only entered the district meet when the second and third place winners in the county meet were unable to go, so he went along with his brother to compete with little thought of winning the contest. In winning the North Iowa title, he outdistanced a field of 19 contestants, and* earned the right to enter the state meet, carrying the banner of Kossuth county and the northern part of the state. 600 Brave Weather The table of results of the Kossuth contest of last Friday are plaqed in an adjacenf column. in the county —JS3 contest. A crowd of about 600 or more braved the cold, damp weather to watch the boys work. The weather hindered the buskers; the corn was harder to handle, and the scores were consequently not as high as better weather would have produced. Wagons for the pickers were furnished by Loren and Ralph Brown, August Hanson, Smith and Mike Loss. Jim Pool, representing the Algona Community club, was on hand and awarded the winner, Henry Heidecker, with a new brown jacket, for winning the county title. Both Live in Lincoln Twp. The Heidecker boys both live in Lincoln township. Henry farms a quarter section of his own and Ernest also has a quarter section. Henry has 80 acres of corn, which he is picking with the help of a hired man, and Ernest had 65 acres which he was picking all by himself. They live about five miles northeast of Lakota. The district champ picked 2,021 Ibs. in the allotted time of 80 minutes. His brother, Henry, in winning the county title here, had a net load of 1661 pounds, while Ernest, in the Kossuth competition, won fourth with a load of 1498 pounds. The figures indicate to what an extent the weather on the day of the county contest hampered the work of the contestants, Two at Lone Rock Hurt in Accidents Lone Rock: Bernard'O'Donnen had the misfortune to get a finger on his left hand broke last Wednesday. When unloading corn in some way his finger was caught in a chain on the elevator. Hiram Ackerman had two fingers on his left hand cut off in the rollers of a corn picker last Wednesday. This is the second Ackerman boy to get his hand in the corn picker this fall. His brother, Earl, had two fingers mashed about three weeks ago, and it is now thought that one finger will have to be amputated. New Presbyterian Pastor Settled Rev. and Mrs. C. Paul Carlson, the former newly designated pastor of the Algona Presbyterian church, took up their new location here last week. Rev. Carlson came here from Rolfe where he was the Presbyterian pastor for the last two years. Both Rev. and Mrs. Carlson are graduates of Macalester college, St, Paul. Rev. Carlson took his Bachelor of Theology degree at the Presbyterian Theological school, Omaha, Neb., and also his M. A. degree at the same school. For a time he was assistant pastor at the Knox Presbyterian church. Rev. Carlson and his wife have been welcomed to their new location at several gatherings of the local church, and by the other members of the Algona clergy. 10 Days in Jail James Cameron, Wesley, was given five days in jail, Monday, by Justice H.

Kossuth county has just as important a section In the northern half of the county as it does in the southern half, and we of the southern half may some- Imes be prone to forget that the leaders of the northern half have done as much—or more—to build up one of the best counties in the best state.

APPLICATIONS DUE HEREWITH1NWEEK FROM WASHINGTON Cut In Corn Acreage 20 Per Cent Would Net $540,000 ! HALF CORN MONEY HOPED FOR SOON n ut in Hog Production 25 Per Cent Would Net $562,500 i | If the corn and hog allottment plan of the administration goes through as planned, and without a hitch, it will nean that a total of over one million dollars will be made available to Kossuth county. , This fact was discovered when figures regarding corn acreage and hog production of KoSBUth county were compiled by County Agent E. R. Morrison, who then estimated the approximate income under the allottment plan to Kossuth county, based on-the plan as it is now standing and without anticipating any changes which might be made in it before it finally geta underway. . In the mean, time, word w»s received at the county .B&enfa-'offlte to the effect that application blanks for' the corn and hog allottment plan were now in the hands of government printers, and should reach Algona by the middle of next week. If the corn acreage of Kossuth county is cut 20 per cent, and an average of $12 an acre is paid by the government for non-production, it would mean that this county would receive $540,000. If the hog production of the entire county were cut 25 per cent, thus making the remaining hogs eligible for a bonus of $5 a bead, it would mean a total bonus of $562,500. These figures assume that every farm, n the county will agree to cut corn and hog production. The totals are Kossuth's share if such were the case. There are approximately 225,000 ac- •es of corn under cultivation in Kos- ;uth county at present, and a reduc- lon of 25 per cent would take 45,000 acres out of cultivation. The hog bonus of $5 per head on '5 per cent of their average two year iroduction would mean a reduction of logs In the county from approximate- y 150,000 to 112,500. The present plans of the admlnistra- ion is to get the corn allottment de- aiis into action as quickly as possible, and it has been announced t&at the ntention is to pay half of the allott- ment for corn land taken out of culti- ation by Christmas, if possible. Just exactly how the corn and hog . allottment plan will be handled in Kosuth county, and presented to Its 3,000 arm homes, has not been definitely ettled, but County Agent Morrison did, tate that as nearly as he can find out, 'ach township will form an allottment committee, and choose one of its members to act on the county allottment ;ommittee. There is nothing compulsory about he corn and hog plan, but it is simply a cooperative proposition, whereby armers are offered a chance to get ogether and help stabilize a higher jrice for their product by cutting down he surplus, much as many manufac- -irers of general merchandise and nec- sary commodities do to keep their 'rices at a fair figure. Vagrancy Charge Draws Jail Term Leonard Johnson of Bancroft, charg- d with vagrancy, was found guilty in he court of Justice P. A. Dansou, last feek, and sentenced to 30 days in the ounty jail.
