LAKE MILLS--At least some mothers knew where and how their sons were spending Saturday night. Instead o£ worrying how late the boys stayed out, the mothers were right with them.

While there, they weren't as thrilled as they might have been, as their boys were defeated by Butfalo Center.. However, the homeward journey \yas packed with thrills. While driving in the storm so hazardous, three cars o£ persons sought refuge from the storm at the Storby farm six miles west of town; one family at the Albertson home two miles further west while the last three cars, after two had started to go in the ditch near the Mattison school, decided the vacant schoolhouse looked pretty good. The 22 persons spent the night there, after building a good fire. Then- biggest discomfort was because all had eaten early suppers and were very hungry and the bed-desks were not so comfortable. ·At daybreak, the car that didn'l go in the ditch, went to town and brought a truck to pull the othei cars out and get the hungry persons back to town. 4 FORCED TO LEAP AS TRAIN APPROACHES ALGONA--Four section mer escaped injury Monday afternoon about 3 o'clock west of town a short distance on the Milwaukee railroad tracks when a freight train bore down upon them.

Taking care of my throat became serious business with me, so I changed to Ijuckies--a light smoke. Of course I smoke other cigarettes notu and then but sooner or later I come back to Luckies.
