ACADEMY SET TO TAKE REVENGE ON UVERMORE FRIDAY St Cecelia's Bow to First ] Season's Defeat at ,_ Mason City The winnng streak of St. Cecelia's academy football team of Algona came to an abrupt end, Sunday, on the spear. head of a devastating offense launched by St. Joseph's academy of Mason City. Algona was playing without the services of Bode, brilliant little backfield man, who suffered a carbuncle on his shoulder. The score was 27 to 0. It was the first victory for St. Joseph's over the local academy in four years. Next Friday afternoon at 3 p. m. the academy team will attempt to duplicate the feat of the high school team by defeating Llvermore high on the local field. The game is expected to be a thriller, as Livermore, with a veteran team, has improved vastly since the first of the season. Two bad breaks resulted in Mason City touchdowns. One came when Omar Kelly dropped back to pass, but was rushed and fumbled the ball which was recovered by Mason City. A touchdown followed. The other bad break came when the Mason City line broke through to block one of Kelly's punts on the 15 yard line, capturing the ball to put the St. Joseph boys in a scoring position, from which they made good. The neatest play of the game was made by Wolfe who crashed through the center of the St. Cecelia line, eluded all taoklers, and swept 71 yards for a single-handed touchdown.

Miss Sarchett has again spent much effort, this time in behalf of the dentists. Her work is reprinted herewith. We might add that there are also a likely collection of lawyers in town, who might furnish good subject matter in the future. (By Winifred E. Sarchett) Our good old dentist, Adams, He's praised by all the madams, Also by all the men. And they go to see him then, He'll fix your teeth up right, He'll work with all his might To please you, and he will, For we all praise him still. Though he's been here quite a while, He still is all In style, Whatever you want done, To your teeth he's the one, And if you are a "had 'ems", False teeth he'll fit, this Adams. He will fix all teeth, bad ones, For child, woman and "dad-urns!" Our good old dentist, Baker, Believe me he's no /faker. For him we take our stand, He's the best in all the land, When your teeth begin to ache, For him then make a break, He'll toss you in the chair, For your teeth he then will care, You'll soon be feeling fine, And you'll go home to dine, And praise him to each friend. Their teeth he then will mend, When their teeth set them wild, He'll fix them for each child. Whatever we want done To our teeth, he gets the "mon"l Our good little dentist "Ole," Is not a roly-poly, But when in his chair we've sat, He's mighty good to look at, His eyes, they sparkle and shine, And his curls they look so fine, He works with might and main, But does not give us pain, He cleans our teeth up nice, For a very moderate price, And if he finds anything wrong, He'll fix It up for a song, When a tooth you annoys, Just see "Ole," girls and boys, We all sure like him fine, We're proud to say "He's mine"! Our cute little denty Schaap, He is right from the shop, That is, he's new you know, Not long from school, that's so, Which makes him up to date, But he works at a reasonable rate, And yet he does fine work, And believe me, he's no shirk, VARICOSE VEINS Healed By New Method No operations nor Injections.

In that case, Emerald Oil acts so quickly to heal your leg sores, reduce any swelling and end all pain, that you are up and about again in no time. Just follow the simple directions and you are sure to be helped. Your druggist won't keep your money unless you are. For princess or for brat, His work's the same at that, For broker or common man, He does the best he can, And he'll wait for his pay, For awhile, so they all say. If you find it hard to bite, He'll flx your teeth up right. Our good old denty Nugent, If we haven't even a new cent Will flx our teeth anyway, And he'll wait for his pay, Till we get work some day, And he won't holler, "Hey! When you goin' to pay that bill," When the going is uphill, But patiently he'll wait, Till by lucky turn of fate We get the money for him, We'll run in on the rim, For our teeth to have him care. When we need a friend he's there! In everything he's nice. Best work, and moderate price. Our swell old Doc McCorkle, He sure does make us "chorkle," He looks like the old "Harry"! You'll have cheeks like a cherry, Soon If you visit Harry, And lips just like a berry, So healthy you will be, A splenlid dentist he, Some say he is the cheapest, It's sure he's not the steepest, He's loved by all the children, And praised by girls and young men, Old men and women, too, All like him, sure they do. They know his work is right, He works with skill and might. Our good old "Doccy" Rlst, Retired he Is, but this Completed would not be, If him, we'd miss, you see, He needs no recommend, All will praise him to the end, Some forty years by his chair. He's stood and practiced there, He's always done his best, And enjoys a well earned rest. Always did the best he could, All praise him, as we should, For he has been our friend, And will be till the end, And when he goes away, He'll shine in fadeless day. PLUM CREEK NEWS H.S. LOSES 1945; CLARION HUSKIES, PLAY HERE TODAY Visitors Lost to Mason City by Scant Margin of Six Points Miss Florence Black of Blch Point vicinity spent the week end with Ann Kain. The Misses Rita and Imelda Dooley of Algona were over night visitors Monday at the home of their friend, Anna Shick. Mrs. Wayne Keith will be one of the hostesses who will help entertain the Algona Baptist Ladies' Aid at the home of Mrs. L. W. Keith in Algona on Thursday. A pie social held in district NO. 5 school Monday night where Miss Irene Devine is the teacher, was well attended and a splendid program was given by the pupils. There are twenty children at this school. Friends here are glad to hear that Eugene Keith is getting along as well as can be expected, but will be al the hospital for some time yet. Eugene was Injured in a tractor accident while he was pulling a corn picker at the home of his brother, Stanley Keith, recently. Emmetsburg high school walloped Algona high, 19 to 6, at the local Athletic Park, Saturday afternoon. This afternoon at 3:15 •J'clock, the strong Clarion outfit, defeated only by a 6 to 0 score by Mason City, will come here for another conference game in the North central Loop—and things look dark for the Bulldogs. To start the Emmetsburg game, Algona recovered an Emmetsburg fumble on Emmetsburg's eight yard line, and lacked the final punch to put it over. Emmetsburg then took the pigskin and crashed down the field for its first touchdown, scoring on a pass. The kick was good. Algona received the next ktckoff, but a few minutes later, Emmetsburg intercepted an Algona pass on its own 40 yard line and drove down the field for the second touchdown. The first half ended with the score 13 to 0 in the visitors' favor. The third quarter was different. Algona woke up, and the boys demonstrated that they can play football, in spurts at least. Receiving the punt, Algona started a 60-yard mach which resulted in a tally. Emmetsburg was unable to stop that march, and the hopes of the fans were considerably buoyed up wfoen gellstrom plunged over for the goal. But with the score 13 to 6 the drive ended. And in the last of the fourth quarter, Emmetsburg intercepted an Algona pass and went over again. Coach Ken Mercer was forced to substitute Boren for Etherlngton at an end, as the former has an injured hip. But Boren demonstrated the possibility of developing into a cracking good end, and Is certain to get into more action. It becomes more and more evident that Algona high school has the material for a good football team, but not very many of the best prospects are out In football suits, which Is unfortunate. However, scrap and fight can sometimes help to offset weight, experience and lack of natural football ability, and the boys who are out should get plenty of credit for their efforts.

DROP KICK GIVES SPENCER VICTORY IN LAST PERIOD Independents to Battle the Austin Packers on Local Lot Sunday A crowd of about 260 saw the Spencer Merchants score a drop kick from the field n the closing minutes of play to nose out the Algona independents, 3 to 0, in a close contest at the Athletic park here last Sunday afternoon. It was one of those contests, which despite many mistakes on both sides, found two team* evenly matched fighting for supremacy. In fact, if Algona could just have its complete array of backfleld stars on hand for any one game, they could whip anybody. But something always happens and Sunday only three regular backs, Mercer, Samp and Barrier, were on hand. Parsons was pulled into the backfleld from the line and rounded out the quartet of ball carriers. Next Sunday home fans will be treated to a pleasing spectacle when the Austin packers come here from Minnesota for an inter-state contest. If you're football minded, you'll get your money's worth at this one, as Austin has a beefy, fast outfit, which is going to make things hot for the local boys. On the other hand,, Algona will have both Nordstrurn, Academy coach, and Mercer, on hand, and all the rest of the regular team which went to the Minnesota-Iowa game last week. The boys are all going to try and be there, and the fans should do the same. Algona carried the ball to Spencer's two yard line once in the first quarter, but an attempted place kick by Mercer failed. Another time Mercer carried the ball back 45 yards after receiving a punt, and only the inability to block out one man prevented a certain touchdown. Louis Moore was a mountain of strength on the defense, and Spencer at times thought he was a regular member of their backfleld, he was with them so much.
