TWO COUNTIES ARE INVOLVED IN A LAWSUIT Poor Relief Couple Become a Bone of Contention. Two somewhat unusual cases were recently brought in the Kossuth district court. One is entitled Webster County vs. Kossuth County; the other, State Board of Social Welfare vs. William E. Flynn. Fort Dodge is the Webster county seat. The petition in the first case was filed by Ralph Bastian.Web- ster county attorney, presumably on order of the Webster- county board of supervisors. It seeks to recover $2752.54 from this county on poor relief account for Holland Rentz and Marie Rentz, who are presumably husband and wife. The petition says that Webster county expended the total amount claimed between July 9, 1936, and December 9, 1941, and claims that the legal settlement I of the Rentzes was, and still is, in Kossuth county. Law in the Case. In Iowa people who move from one county to another remain charges of the county they leave if they are or are likely to become dependent on public relief, provided the county to which they move serves notice, within a year, to depart. Such notice must be served once a year as long as the parties remain in the second county, and meanwhile their legal settlement remains in the county from which they came and that county is liable for whatever the second county has to expend for their relief. The petition in this case makes no mention of such notice. Furthermore the Kossuth board of supervisors possesses no knowledge that the Rentzes ever had a legal settlement here. The case will therefore be resisted, and a hard-fought trial is expected. Attached to the petition is an 11-sheet, letterhead-size, itemized statement of account showing the Rentz relief bills paid by Webster county. The Ledyard Suit. The case against Flynn. who is manager of a Ledyard lumberyard, involves an old age pension lor his mother, Mrs. Nellie Flynn. The state board says it paid Mrs. Flynn $650.40 between December 1, 1937, and sometime in August, 1941, but under a statute providing for double recovery under certain conditions sues for $1250.34, the amount alleged to be due after deducting an admitted offset. Mrs. Flynn is now dead. The state board's petition includes the following allegations: "That on or about December 12, 1936, you made a written statement directed to plaintiff that your income was $140 per month, and that your income during the past 12 months was an average of $130 per month. "That on or about June 21, 1938, you made a written statement directed to plaintiff stating that your income during the pact 12 months was $1500 and that Speaker 'TWS IS THOMAS H.

Ottosen, Mar. 4—The Ottosen high school, with a team in the state high school girls' basketball tournament for the third consecutive year, won 27 of 30 games this season, despite a veritable famine of reserve strength. At one time the girls had exactly two reserves on call, Violet Nelson, seventh grader, and Rosemary Jacobson, freshman. Nevertheless, with Bertha Longseth's brilliant play in the front court, and Gladys Axne monopolizing rebounds and controlling play in the back court, Ottosen rolled up an impressive record. Two Top Girls. Sheldahl, Bode, and Havelock I —all state tournament teams— defeated Ottosen during the :eason, but only Sheldahl per- 'ormed the feat when Gladys Axne was in action.

THIEVES STEAL EX-IRVINGTON MAN'S 4 TIRES Irvington, Mar. 4 — A picture and news story in the Fort Dodge Messenger Saturday was of special interest to Irvingtonians because it concerned Carl Westergard, former Irvington man. The Messenger said Mr. Westergard's car had been stolen, o T _ stripped of wheels and tires, and •ecord"during "her" career"at"6tto- i abandoned'on a country road. He your average income per month was $125. Misrepresentation Charged. 'That both statements were not correct, and that your actual income for the year 1936 was more than $2400; that your income for the year 1937 was more than $3200; that your income for the year 1937 was more than $3200; that your income for the year 1938 was more than $2700; that your income for the year 1939 was more than $2900 and that your income for the year 1940 was more than $3800. "That if plaintiff had been advised as to your true income, plaintiff would not have granted old age assistance to your mother. "That during the period that your mother received old age assistance you were reasonably able to contribute to the necessary care and support of your I mother without undue hardship, I and that you failed and refused I to do so, and that all of the old age assistance granted and paid to your mother by plaintiff was in excess of the amount allowed by Chapter 266-F1, 1935 Code of Iowa, as amended, and Chapter 181.1, 1939 Code of Iowa, a amended." Mr. Flyrm's answer in this case had not yet been filed up to the time when the court clerk's records were consulted for this story. WESLEY SOLDIER WEDS. Wesley, Mar. 4—Mr. and Mrs. T. P.

This all-state forward aver- ged 33% points a game in 29 James this season, but that's only lalf of it. She had approximately the same average last year. During her career she has scored a record total of 3,156 points. She has racked up 984 points this year alone, on 458 baskets and 68 free throws. Others on Squad. Longseth and Axne were the only experienced girls on call during most of the season. LaVonne Hanson's versatile play was missed more than two months because of an appendicitis operation. Barbara Underberg, sophomore, and Charlotte Jacobson, 13-year-old freshman, came through without previous experience to fill forward positions in commendable style. Jean Ann Jacobson and Eugenia Mae Hofius, with Gladys Axne and La Vonne Hanson, have handled back court assignments. Ena Marie De Smidt, senior without previous experience, also has been of value. Here's the Record. The opponents have averaged 42.7 points a game, but fans here point significantly to Ottosen's scoring record: The girls have averaged 61.4 points a game—and that's scoring!

The thieves pushed the car from the curb into the middle of the street, then pushed it ahead of another car, one of the thieves steering the Westergard car, and stopped on a little used road east of the city. Mr. Westergard still has one tire, his spare, which was locked in the car trunk. He will receive a check from an insurance company to cover the value of his tires. Mr. Westergard is a carpenter. He and his family formerly farmed east of here, then for a time lived in the village. The Fort Dodge police chief commented that every car owner should keep a record of the serial numbers of tires. This makes it easy to recover insurance, whereas it is difficult if the numbers are unknown. The police chief added that the information is of value to officers of the law, for it often enables them to spot thieves and sometimes to recover other loot. Tires are not always stolen for personal use. They may be stolen for sale, and the police have ways to find out who sells them. SAW MANGLES HAND. Seneca Tfp., Mar. 4—J. B.
