8tat« . low« City, la. X: By Russ Waller * * * The problems of small towns and small business were brought sharply into focus in the Titonka area, last week, with the an" nouncement by Fred Thacker that he will sell his theatre equipment and fixtures at public auction, Saturday, April 28, starting at 1 p.m. All items are to be .sold, piece by piece, and in lots. * * * Herb Schauer of Algona was doing some repair work around a chimney at his home in the east part of Algona last week, and ran across an old statement, dated March 12, 1891, addressed to Messrs. Hough & Co. from the W. P. Orr Linseed Oil Co. of Spencer, Iowa, J. S. McElhiney, agtnt. The bill was evidently for a carload of something or other, which came to $350.37. Today the freight on a car might be atm6st that much. * » * An Algona student now attending John Hopkins University in Baltimore really caught us by surprise last week. He, forwarded an April 9 copy of the John Hopkins News Letter which carried a banner headline stating that "Nixon New Hopkins Prexy; GOP Stunned." The story read seriously, without a false blemish to indicate it was \a belated April Fool joke—which ,it of course was, but we weren't but what the John Hopkins' r had "scooped" the world, l we read the accompanying note from Nidus Dermand. * * » Nidas, incidentally, adds that "all of my buddies on the floor are very familiar with your paper. They thought the most interesting story of the year was the one on the mayor candidates ... most of them favored Herb Adams." * * * ' Ed Shackelford, consuming a morning cup of coffee, remarked that he felt a little slighted because he didn't get invited to the wedding In . Monaco but he still wished them well. * * * Iowa State College released results of a farm price study which covered 148 Iowa farms, last week, all of thorn modern and above average in soil quality and "equipment. The net income on these farms per acre dropped to $15 in 1955, compared with $39 in 1954, and $56 in 1953. The net income in 1955 was only 38 percent of that in 1954, and only 27 percent of that in 1953... and the study was not made by a political organization or for political purposes, but simply to ascertain the truth. * * * Clark Mollenhoff, the 35 year- uld sharpshooting Washington reporter (who is also a lawyer) recently won the $500 Raymond Clapper memorial award for outstanding reporting. He is a graduate of St. Cecelia's Academy in Algona, where his family lived borne years buck. * * * If any of the state officials and administrative officers think the 'proposal to increase the state .sales tax to 3 percent is being met with hearty approval, they should visit the north end of Kossuth county ... the present sales lax setup is so enticing to Minnesota merchants that the Fairmont, Minn, paper is publishing a special free-distribution supplement which covers the northern half of Kossuth county, and is aimed entirely at business from Iowa . .. what 3 percent would do, we can only surmise. » * * Mr and Mrs Henry Van Hove have a son, Henry Jr. who is in the army and has been in Korea ... Another Titonka soldier, Warden Smidt, son of Mr and Mrs Simon Smidt, was also recently sent to Korea .. . last Sunday the two boys were slated to hold a reunion in Seoul... the two boys were near neighbors at home, and the get-together in Korea should really have been a big event in their lives. * * • We had a birthday party down at our house last Sunday, a 4th birthday in this case, but one of the invited guests could not attend, Doug Cock—he had the measles. This recalled to his mind a birthday party that Don Smith Jr. once had. When the day arrived for the party, Don had the whooping cough, and the party wound up with only one gue*t, Gene Zender, who had already had the whooping cough and was presumably immune. * » » Dean Barnes, county extension agent, reports that a survey shows that on April 1,.farmers in the 14 major cattle feeding states, had eight percent fevyer cattle on le-fd than a year earlier. » » » Famous Last Line — That was a swell Home Show, but a dangerous place to take your wife!

ALGONA, IOWA, TUESDAY, APRIL 24, 1956 3 SECTIONS - 24 PAGES VOl. 93- NO, Halt 4 Runaways Here Four Austin, Minn, boys, from 10 to 13 years of age, who 'just wanted something to do' were apprehended early Thursday morning by officer Pete Jorgenson of the Algona Police Department. The boys, shown above, are, left to right: Llbyd Leeper. .13, Jim Norgaard, 10. Raymond Crump, 11, and Allan Anderson, 12. Here's the story, according to Anderson, who was designated ringleader of the group by his mates: "We left home between five and six p.m. Wednesday. We went to school during the day, wanted something to do, so ran away from home. We walked about two miles, then began hitch-hiking. "The first ride took us to Albert Lea, the next to near Blue Earth, then the third to Bancroft, where the driver bought us a bottle of pop. The next lift took us to the intersection north of Algona and we got a ride into town (with Mr and Mrs Joe Dahlhauser, who let the b6ys out at 209 East Kennedy) to within a couple of blocks of the home of the lady who took us in. (Mrs J. H. Nielsen, 609 South Moole. The boys rang her doorbell at 1:45 a.m., she let them in, they slept there and she furnished them with a nice breakfast early Thursday morning.) "We left the lady's house and got picked up a short distance away by a policeman." That's the story of the runaway, direct from one of them. Parents of the boys picked them up and took them home Thursday afternoon. (Upper Des Moines Flashfoto). Edw F.

A .strong north wind spread the blaze rapidly to the livestock shed and bales. There 1 was no chance to save the two buildings when the firemen arrived on the scene. Fourteen friends and neighbors of Mr and Mrs Steven gathered at the farm Saturday afternoon and plowed 50 acres in , three hours. The farm is owned by John McGuire of Algona. The Algona fire department was called to the home of Helmer Helmers on Poplar street at 6 p.m. Friday and extinguished a fire which destroyed $300-400 worth of used lumber.

Mr Funk controlled the fire with a garden hose until the firemen arrived on the scene. Sparks from the chimney were blamed for the conflagration.

Hope For Rain As Seeding Of Oafs Concludes With 99% of the oats seeding completed in Kossuth county area, farmers are exhibiting some anxiety about the scarcity of moisture. And well they might, as information obtained by Dean Barnes, county extension director Monday morning, shows. A comparative sample test of Webster soil for moisture content taken from land in April which grew corn last year, shows the following sub-soil moisture content which might be an average for this area: April 1954—.5.6 inches. April 1955 — 7.4 inches. April 1956 — 5.0 inches. According to E. R. Duncan, agronomist from Iowa State college, "whether bumper crops develop or not depends on moisture below the 3 foot mark under average Iowa conditions." Barnes stated that Webster soil normally carries two- inches of moisture per foot. For a five foot depth this would be 10 inches. In the present case, subr soil moisture is thus only about half of what it should be. Many areas of Iowa, particularly south and west of here, have even less sub-soil rqoisture than is 1 in Kossuth county. Three Chief Reasons Chief reason given for the present situation is the drouth of. last summer, . plus the small amount of- winter precipitation, and failure thus far of any spring rains ,to materialize. . ' 1 Several three-inch rains in April and June will bt needed to overcome the present handicaps of th* crop year, local ASC mid Mil conservation officials siai*.;- Corn normally requires 20 to 22 inches of moisture during the season, Barnes said. Corn can usually go through, a season without that much rain actually falling, but the soil moisture reserve has to furnish some of the basic moisture requirement, and the present soil tests show that the surplus is not there. Louis Reilly of Algona, now traveling the midwest as a representative of the Poland China World, reports that with a few exceptions Kansas, Nebraska and southwestern Iowa are aU far below normal iasoil moisture. He just returned from a 4,000 mile swing through that area. According to the Weekly Weather and Crop bulletin, the lack of subsoil moisture is found all over Iowa. Conduct Own Tests Some farmers in the area h*ve conducted in the area have conducted their own tests of subsoil moisture with small post-hole diggers. Soil samples are taken by the digger, one foot at a time, and each of the five samples is placed in separate piles. By feeling the soil and checking it against a chart from Iowa State college, a farmer can determine approximately the amount of moisture in each of the various depths, from one to five feet. ' Janitor Assault Case Up Friday A hearing on a charge of assault and battery, filed against Wayne Obermeyer, 26, janitor of the Grant Consolidated school, is scheduled for a hearing in the court of Justice C. H. Ostwinkle, Friday morning, April 27. Obermeyer denies the charge. The charges were filed by Lars Skaar and Myrl Johnson, who say the defendant struck their sons, Lonnie Skaar and James Johnson, last April 4, at the school.
