Between Friday night's handling of the game at Hampton with Algona, and Saturday night's contest here between Garrigan and Pacelli of Austin, was as night is to day— in that order. : At Hampton we will not question the Usual offside penalties, or even the holding. But on two big plays the officials through oversight, ignorance or prejudice were horrible. Algona pulled, a perfect "sleeper" play, but the official ruled'.the wide flankei near the sidelines, was not "set" the prescribed time. He hadjbeen standing .motionless for 15 seconds before the 'play began. The s e c o n d Hampton touchdown came after the bjall carrier 'step ped out-of-bounds, according t< those nearby, then w.ent 40 yard; for the tally with Algona think ing of course the ball was dead But the officals were on the wrong-Sid! of the play. And to have the referee place the*ball a yard back of where it was downed adds insult to injury. Officials at the Garrigan-Pacelli game lost, no time in setting the game pattern, and controlling it—and they did an efficient fair job. Poor officiating can spoil a sport, and the pleasure or good competition.

C. Shierk and James Whittemore. This is not a debate, but both men will have speaking time, and the audience will be invited to discuss any civic matters with the candidates as time allows. Quite an idea, too! * « * Yarn McClure, secretary of ih* Kossuth County Fair, isn't too happy about the change in date of the Iowa State Fair. When the state fair was moved up one week in 1962, it /alia exaptly in the usual week of the Kossuth County Fair. MeClure said that the only solution for the Kossuth Fair was to change the usual dates also, which means up-setting some of, .thjs. bookings for the Kossuth Fate which have become used to 'toe third week in August, year after year, * T» . »' Th« "sporty f fading" discussion has baf f rod .' us for some time, so it was good to see an article the other day on the subject. The article in the Atlantic Monthly says it is not how fast we read, but how well we read In other words what we really absorb. It adds that once we are happy with the quality of the reading we can turn our atten tion to how fast we, can reed. The best readers, however, those who do the best job of getting the meaning from what they read also read quickly. So, this : brings us to a •. little more serious last line for the week.

All town and township chairmen for Christmas Seals ber pistol in a holster during the argument, according to hig statement to local police offii cers. All of the others were re- .leased from custody after being interrogated at the city polico station. %; ' The run-in between two groups, one including 10 boys from Algona and one 'from Wesley and; the, other including the Manson. youth and four others .from.,Humboldt, Ft. Dodge .and Dakota City, occurred in, the vicinity of the Elk Cleaners on East Call street here. Voigt discovered' the .16 boyl having an argument as he mad< his rounds in the city polico car. According lo a story patched together after the incident, ihe groups were going lo meel al ihe city parking lol and have a battle royal. They didn'l get that far. The three cars were parked north of the cleaning establishment and some healed talk followed. When the Manson youth made it known he had a switch-blade available, most of the fight went out of the opposition and the police made the pick-up. A couple of the youths in the Ft. Dodge car tossed a few pop bottles sometime during the discussion but no one got hurt. The Manson youth reportedly told local officers that he carried the knife everywhere—even to church on Sunday—and according to policemen here, the youth's parents knew he had the knife, which is illegal to carry concealed, due to the fact the blade is more than three inches long. It is not known where he got the pistol, but it is illegal for anyone to sell • (or to give to) a pistol to a person under 21 years of age. The owner of such a store, or the person giving such a gift can also get into a lot of trouble. Carrying a concealed weapon is a felony—and can result in a $1,000 fine, and/or five years im» prisonment on conviction. First offense sometimes is lighter, carrying a three-month sentence in the county jail. Possible charges in the matter are being considered by County Attorney Gordon Winkel. Winkel was out of town Wednesday. Fortunately, in this case, there was no bloodshed. ft* ^ 2 Hurt'Playing Football At Bancroft Sunday Bancroft — Two local boys suffered injuries while playing football here Sunday.
