Principal speaker was "Jim" Wallace, farms manager for the State college, Ames. Mr. Wallace was accompanied by Geo W. Godfrey, college director of agricultural relations, who spoke briefly. Mr. Wallace works under Mr. Godfrey. Mr. Wallace's remarks turned out to be of great interest riot only to the farmers in attendance but to the Rotarians. The Rotarians are nearly all town men whose interest in farming is vicarious; ,Mr. Wallace gave the impression, of a man of sound, horse sense who knows his business. , • Nine Farms Compared.

DEHNERT DIES; FUNERAL ON SATURDAY William Dehnert, who would have been 75 years old Saturday, died last night at 6:15 o'clock. He had not been in good health for two years, and since the first of the year had been bedfast. Funeral services will be held Saturday ; afternoon at 1:30 o'clock at the home, and at 2 o clock at the Congregational church, with the Rev. D. R. Martin in charge. Burial will be made in Riverview cemetery. 22 voices will sing. Four directors are to be elected, the terms of eight others not yet expiring. Mr. Roberts is being brought to Algona by the local educational association, which is composed of teachers in Algona public schools. This group brings at least one outstanding speaker to Alpona during each school year. The regular chamber meeting was dated in the by-laws for this week Tuesday evening, but a token meeting was held then and adjourned to next Monday night to take advantage of the appearance of Mr. Roberts here. TEMPERATURES BEGIN TO ACT LIKE SPRING Members of Algona service clubs will gel a snicker out of the predicament of F. E. McAleney, chief pharmacist's male, at the navy recruiting headquarters at Des Moines Tuesday. That was the day John Lentsch, 29, former Algona barber, enlisted in the navy. He was dared (probably through information given to McAleney by someone) to let McAleney tie him uo. Algona service club members also tied Lentsch up, and in a few seconds behind a screen he undid sever>' minutes of work and escaped, It was no different in Des Moines and McAleney's face was red when Lentsch escaped within 46 seconds from the elaborate knots tied by McAleney. Lentsch had been bothering with Chas. Clement for sev- • eral months in the letter's shop under the Algona hotel. He is an amateur magician, and gave several programs in Algona and surrounding territory, including the "escape" trick from ropes. It was probably from Mr. Clement that he got his inspiration to join the navy, for Mr. Clement was in .the navy during the last war as a barber. Contrary to what might be believed by .a civilian, a barber hasn't the easiest berth on a warship. A barber starts work at 8 a. m., gets an hour and a half for lunch, and then works through to 6 p. m. His customers are steady—in fact they line up day after day. When battle stations are called the barber doesn't lake the day off to watch the fireworks. He's down below— m fact way down below- passing ammunition and powder bags—one of the most dangerous and least glamorous jobs on a warship. And in case the ship goes down there are a lot of long-haired sailors to reach the port as survivors, for the bbrbers usually accompany the captain lo Mr. Davy Jones' well-known locker.

To determine what can be done by intelligent management to promote the interests 'of both landlords and tenants. The college owns other farms of which Mr. Wallace is manag- «r. but they were not included in his remarks. The nine farms are widely separated, but most of them are in southeastern Iowa. There are only two in north Iowa, one in irne > ™? r ° Gnr<1 ° county, the other in will Clay county. Some are good some- farms, others vary from fair to poor and very poor. " Favorable Record. Mr. Wallace exhibited a table in large figures to shqw ^gt his management had done towards achieving the purposes of the donator. His record went back four years and showed varying, results, but all favorable. The rec- "r<t in some cases was remarkable. , ' Some of the farms had actu- -,ilv been money-losers.

The third known Kossuth victim of the treacheiv ous attack on Pearl Harbor and Honolulu is Thomas George Wagner, son o'f Mrs. Peter Schmidt, of St. Joe. Mrs. Schmidt received a letter from Prank Knox, secretary of the navy, Tuesday. telling her that her son had been a victim of the Japanese attack. ™ The ~ letter came as a shock, for Mrs. Schmidt had not had prior information that he was involved • n the attack or that he was in Pearl Harbor at the time. Secre- :ary Knox's letter was dated March 4, and no information was given as to how he met his. death, or whether he had been wounded and died sometime lat- Sent Christmas Cards. Mrs. Schmidt received a hnstmas card from Thomas mailed at Honolulu December 6, nd she had presumed he was all ight, but being kept busy be- ause of the war. She had been' omewhat alarmed because she had not .heard from .him, but he was not a great hand to write' and censorship, requirements might have made the sending of letters from him impractical if he were on active duty with an active warship in battle station. Wagner was a radioman on a .battleship, with a first-class seaman's rating. He took an examination shortly before the Pearl Harbor attack for advancement and had been expecting promotion.
