"Since the untimely death of our majority leader I had hoped, with you, 'that at least until his funeral services had been held, a decent respect for his memory would have deferred discussion of political and legislative matters. It Is, therefore, with regret that I find that advantage is being taken of what, In all decency, should be a period of mourning. Because of this situation, however, I am compelled In th& pablic Interest, though against every inclination, to write to you. I do this because you are the acting majority leader In the Senate." Then, after rehearsing his objectives In Court reform and repeat- Ing his argument that a constitutional amendment would be too slow,- -he demanded a fight to the finish: "May I, therefore, tell you very (imply once more that the objectives of the President, and I believe of the great majority of our citizens, remain the same, and that I believe that it Is the duty of the Congress, and especially of the members of the majority party In the Senate and the House of Representatives, to pass legislation at this session to carry ou the objectives." At this oblique effort to boost "acting majority Leader" Barkley as Joe Robinson's successor and because the President accused others of not observing a decent mourning period while he himself stepped out before the funeral with such a political message, Pat Harrison's friends burned with indignation. Although both contenders favored the Court bill, Alben Barkley's supporters consisted chiefly of zealous New Dealers and freshman * Senators, while Pat Harrison's following largely included anti-Roosevelt Democrats and seasoned Senators who knew him as a conservative at heart, considered him a grand old guy. Few days later, Democratic Senators by secret ballot (38 to 37) chose "Dear Alben" Barkley as their new majority leader, and Pat Harrison rushed to his side to declare: "We've got to fight together in the future, as we have in the past, for the progress of the country and the ALGONA, IOWA, THURSDAYTTULY 29. 3937 Ten Pages VOL. 35.—NO. 30 DAY RODEO OPENS IN ALGONA 11 Piece Band Hired For Free Melon Day Frolic GAMBLING GAMES AREALLAGAINST LAW SAYS WINKEL Replies to Titonka Editorial Regarding Celebration Concessions Two features were added to the arrangements for the annual Watermelon Day Celebration, Wednesday, August 11. Wit Thoma and his Ten Princetonlans have been engaged by the dance committee, and will play for the free dance the evening of the celebration, beginning at 9:00 p. m. The dancing will continue until 1:00 a. m. Wit Thoma is fast assuming the position of the leading dance orchestra of the middle west. His engagements for the past few years include the best hotels and night clubs and resorts In the states from the Gulf of Mexico to the Canadian border. This orchestra Is sometimes called a "Prince of a Dance Band", and has appeared on numerous radio programs, has made a number of recordings, and features vocalists, novelties, and comedies. They will perform on the enlarged dance floor which Is to be located In the middle of the block of State Wit Thoma's Band street between Dodge and Moore streets. The dance floor, which has been rented from the same company that furnished the floor last year, Is twice the size of the floor used in 1936, and measures 31' by 170*. As a feature of the celebration, the Algona baseball club has booked a celebrated team from Mexico, called the "Carta Blancas", composed of Mexicans and Spaniards. This Is the only traveling Mexican or Spanish team on tour today, and has an excellent record. The organization Includes, also, a group of Spanish singer* and an orchestra. This part of the entertainment, the singers and orchestra, have agreed to furnish some street entertainment on the dance floor the afternoon of the celebration. They will also entertain before and during the game at the ball park. The Carta Blancas will play the Algonn Grays and the game will be called for 8:30 p. m. Democratic solidarity In the Senate and perhaps quiet talk that he influenced the ballottlng, President Roosevelt invited Winner Berkley and Loser Harrison to the White House for lunch to discuss the legislative work ahead. PINE SPINNINGWASHINGTON: With about 1,000,000 more cotton spindles at work In the U. S. last month than in June 1936, cotton textiles had definitely achieved a comeback in the face of competition from sythetics and from abroad; and by the month's end, according to the U. 8. Census Bureau's report last week U. S. cotton textile mills had absorbed 7,361,700 bales of the South's great cash crop, thus establishing in 11 months an all-time record for domestic • consumption during the 12-month cotton year from August 3 to August 1. Best previous year: l»2«-27 with 7,189,585 bales. To Southern cotton farmers, whose 1937 acreage the Crop Reporting Board has estimated at 34,- It2,<»n acres with a probable yield •f over 14,000,000 bales, this was life-saving news. For the marketing of such a crop, increased home consumption is nothing less than a necessity, because U. 8. cotton exports have dropped steadily from an average of 8,300,000 bales a year between 1924 and 1929 to 6,000,000 but year and about 5,600,000 in the current cotton year. However, AAA short crops helped out the annual carry-over frou a towering peak «f 9,580,000 bales to 6,324,000 bales at the end of the last cotton year. The estimated carry-over this year will be down to 4,400,000. As last week cotton's crucial season was just beginning, these estimates had little effect on cotton's long-time price, 12c. Not So Tall, But We Get Bushels Now that everybody is putting in their oar about the tall corn being grown In their respective areas, it might be a good time for The Algona Upper Des Moines to say a few words about Kossuth county. That we have the largest county In Iowa is a well known fact; and that we have the best county in Iowa of the Democratic Party," «» well known also, especially to »««**• th« appearance/of Tth«Mt*iabrMy».te Itjj, . , Of course that brings uc to eWu'. • Wa, don't grow our corn 16 feet high, and spotty, in Kossuth. In fact there may not be a single stalk 16 or 18 feet high in the whole county. The reason is this. Kossuth farmers, according to A. L. Brown, county agent, generally plant a .corn that matures earlier than does the corn in south Iowa. Corn this section, grow as high. In therefore, does not But when it comes to consistency of yield and bushels per acre — then, Wend*, Kossuth county takes no K.C.MONARCHS MEET GRAYS IN GAME TONIGHT FLYEB— CLARKSDALE, Missisippi: When Pilot Mack Mclnnis landed his plane In a Clarksdale field and could not Wtart the engine, a passerby named Gjrady Catledge offered to help but refused to spin the propeller.

The Monarchs are the colored champion team of the country. Before playing Lake View, Sunday, the Grays changed benches and came out of their losing streak to trim the visitors, 8 to 2. Tonight they will again take the third base bench. Whether or not the Monarchs will also find ill luck on the first base line remains to be seen. Addition of several new players is also expected to break the spell of misfortune that has hounded the local club the past few weeks after a good start. A week from Sunday the highlight of the season will be here, when the Des Moines team, leaders of the Western Lague, play Algona under the local lights. •eat Komuth Corn Not Spotty In some southern Iowa counties, a stnlk may grow In a bottom, where some of North Iowa's top soil has been washed In, to 16 or 18 feet. And a quarter of a mile away, you can find it only shoulder high. For example, Joe Zanke has 280 bushels of rye from five acres. The per acre yield is not as high as some claim, but Joe's five acres arc all consistently good—and yielding heavy. However, the battle seems not to be between North and South Iowa, but between Iowa as a whole, and other corn-growing states. So any way you look at it, you can't lose If you live in Iowa. Threshing Crews Ready Threshing crews in Kossuth are about ready to get to work. Alfalfa hay crops are being hurried, and some runs are already threshing. Near Good Hope, Lloyd Gross and Will Ehrhardt threshed the John Reid barley Wednesday of last week with their "combine" harvesting machine. The combine methods need but two or three extra men and the average job can be cleaned up in a couple of days. Crops, including small grains, hay and corn, alike, all are looking wonderful through this section, and barring heavy hail or some other disaster, Kossuth seems destined for REAL ENFORCEMENT WITH TOWN LEADERS County Attorney L. A. Winkel, replying to a recent editorial in The Titonka Topic regarding gambling games and undesirable concessions at town and village celebrations, outlined his position and views with regard to the matter, In an interview yesterday. "With regard to some outright gambling games," said Mr. Winkel, "such as dice games and slot machines, the county attorney's office has definite instruction to clean them out. We have done so and intend to keep doing so. But in the case of town and local celebrations, I believe the matter should be taken care of by local citizens themselves." Mr. Winkel points out that all of the games, including corn games, are illegal under the present law, as they have been for years. The present change in the law merely tightened up on the law enforcement and provided teeth for taking care of violators of the prolific, illegal practices which have been going on for years in this respect. Community Dictates Policy Winkel was discussing the editorial which quite correctly pointed out that many town celebrations allow sharpers tn make "suckers" out of those who attend. Titonka, however, has banned most of the rank games for years, the editorial stat- Victims Of River Tragedy 125 HEAD STOCK WITH 60 RIDERS AT FAIRGROUNDS PICTURED ABOVE are the three victims of a drowning mishap in the Cedar River near Cedar Rapids a week ago Wednesday. All are former residents of Algona. Funeral services for Mrs. Zhorne were held in the local Presbyterian church last week. At the left is Mrs. Ada Marie Andrew, a sister of Vernon U Reeves, pictured at the right. Mrs. Jessie Van Dorston Zhorne Is pictured In the center. They were swept from their feet into a deep pool by the current, while wading Mrs. Zhorne was a recent bride, having been married May 24. Rev. Carlson and Rev. English conducted the funeral services here. Swea Twp. Girl Of 17 Is Kossuth's Health Queen Eloise Preston Pick of 9 Entries; Will Go to State Fair ed. "I wish to compliment Titonka, and every other community, which refuses^to permit such games to operate. However, It is not the function of the county attorney's office to dictate policy to the lead- in*-«ltizenB of each community, If they allow a "sucker" game to operate, they are hurting only themselves and their own community. I trust that none are allowed to operate this fall when the celebration season gets into full swing." Officials of the Algona Watermelon Day, to be held here Wednesday, August 11, stated that no "gyp" games would be allowed to operate, but only the acceptable type of games. All Are Illegal In conclusion, Winkel added, if any of these gambling games are tolerated by the local authorities, whether it be those ordinarily considered as the more vicious type, like chuck-luck, black jack, roulette wheels, and others, or those of a leas vicious variety such as the ordinary corn games, penny pitch, blanket stands, etc, the operators are nevertheless violating the law and subject to prosecution. Winkel says that if any of the local officials need or desire any assistance at any time, his office is ready and willing to lend such assistance as may be requested. In turn, the state law enforcement officers may be called upon If necessary. A pretty brunette, 17 years old, from Swca township, will represent Kossuth county at the state fair as Kossuth county's healthiest girl. She Is Miss Eloise Preston, the daughter of Mr and Mrs. Joseph Preston, a member of the Swea Spirits of Service girls' 4-H club. Mrs. Paul Larson Is the club leader. With nine girls from the county clubs competing, Miss Preston was selected as Kossuth's representative Tuesday afternoon, after examinations and "hteSsuremints made 1 by Drs. Wallace and Bourne had been tallied. Music In Her Hobby Eloiae has a real hobby in music At the Swea City high school, where she is n junior this coming fall, she plays in the school band, and although the saxophone may seem to be an instrument for men, it just happens that Miss Preston takes to the contrivance like a duck takes to water.

Tlie first sign of infection was noted last Friday, and she was taken to the hospital at Whittemore. She was later taken to Fort Dodge. Anti-tetanus serum has been administered to the girl, who will be seven years old next month. "* At last reports she was holding her own, but not completely out of danger yet.

Mr. Kelso lit a match and threw it on the ground, after lighting his cigar, unaware that the ground around him was saturated with gasoline. The ground immediately caught fire and his clothing became ignited. Other workers, who were in the shed at the time came running out and cut his clothing off him as quickly as possible. Mr. Kelso was immediately rushed to the Kossuth hospital at Algona, where his burns were treated. His legs were severely burned from the hips down. He will have to remain in the hospital for at least four days.

The rodeo Is again being sponsored by the Kossuth fair association, and a program of better than two hours In length is being offered. Clyde Miller himself, whose rodeo stock farm is located at Council Grove, Kansas, began his experience with horses when he and his father owned and managed a pony farm of from 250 head up to 1,000. As a child he was allowed to deal in stock, and says his worst mistake was on a trip to Chicago, when at the age of 12 and while taking a carload of ponies to the stockyards, he saw a sign stating that pink Ice cream cones could be had two for five cents. He bought a dime's worth and walked down the street :rying to eat four at a time. He 'ound that four cones at one time were too much for a boy of 12 to handle. , Married Iowa Girl Mr. Miller married Belle Hanna of Vlnton in 1B1U. From his wife, an expert in gaited horses, he learned about the fancy high school variety of animal. Their first venture in the show business was with a saddle horse, highly educated, which they displayed at fairs. With their earnings from this horse, they gradually expanded until today they have the largest rodeo troupe in the United States. (-•albraith. conducted the services.
