AUGUST 12, 1937 Eight Pages VOL. 35.—NO. 32 MELON DAY PLEASES CROWD OF 15,113 Bancroft, Wesley Men Arrested on Bootlegging Charges Wins Cup, Title As Junior Miss Algona WASHINGTON: While 500-odd nember* of the U. S. Congress thought of going home, Senator La- tfcftttte, who had spent the previous **eek end yachting with the President, last week broadcast to the press his view that congress should stay In session until a "comprehensive legislative schedule" had been '•*JHiUd. He said he »poke only for himself; but new majority leader Barkley, who ha* also been on. the yachting party, wa* promptly quizzed by Republicans. . "I am very anxious to know . . ." sarcastically murmered Senator McNary, "whether We are to follow the leadership of the Senator from •Wisconsin ... I have felt since the Capitulation (on the Court BUD, under the management of our able Vice President that we would probably adjourn ... by the fifth of August ... I doubt that he (Senator LaFollette) spoke the voice of the President" Two nights later Senator Barkley, Speaker Bankhead and Leader ' Sam Rayburn of the House waited on the President to hear his views at flrst hand, were quickly shamed out of any hasty desire to go home when Franklin Roosevelt asked them what they had done so far to justify Congress* seven months sojourn In Washington. Speaker Bankhead started to rattle off a list of bills passed—bills for the most part neither Important nor publicly known. The President squelched him with a roar of laughter. Presently the visitors came out and gave the press a list of five bills to be acted on before adjournment: A minimum wages, maximum hours bill; the Wagner Housing Bill; the New Court BUI; a loophole-plug- t tax bill; a bill to set new sugar Little Barbara Lynne, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Vernell Hardgrove, WM chosen Junior Mlsa Algona for 1937, after contestants had been Judged by audience applause at the Can Theatre here last Friday night.

MISSING WESLEY FARMER RETURNS ONE SENTENCED, SECOND PONDERS flGHTINGCHARGE Robinson, Lloyd Taken by State, Federal Agents In Raids One sentence for bootlegging was meted out in district court, Monday, by Judge George A. Heald, and a second defendant on the same charge, is under arrest and In the county jail, as a result of raids made at Wesley and Bancroft, last week, by state and federal agents. Harold Lloyd, Wesley, was arrested August 5, and charged with bootlegging. He was sentenced Monday to three months in jail. Robinson Old Offender The second raid was made last Friday night at Bancroft, when state and federal men swooped down on rooms occupied by James Robinson, in a hotel there. Officers declared they had found and confiscated two cases of whiskey, and a quantity of alleged alcohol. Robinson was brought to Algona and placed In jail after a prelbnin ary hearing. At the hearing before Justice Danson, Robinson declared that the liquor had been taken unlawfully and without due process of law by the agents, and that there had been failure to Issue a proper search warrant before the raid. One Fined $1,000 Wednesday, however, there seemed to be some belief that Robinson might change his mind about fighting the case and enter a plea cf guilty to the charge. If so, his case may come up today or tomorrow before Judge Heald. In 1925, Robinson was arrested on a Similar charge, and fined $1,He has been con- U. S.

America has more beautiful girls per square mile—or square acre, than all the nations of Europe thrown together, says Glen Naudain, former Algona man, now head of the chemistry department at Winthrop College, Rock Hill, South Carolina, and he should know, because he and his wife have just returned from a two months' trip abroad. But lest anybody think that two months were spent in looking and comparing the respective merits of American and European girls. we hasten to add that Mr. and Mrs. Naudain took a self-conducted tour that'included Madera Islands, Morrocco, Algiers, Glbralter, and even a foot In Spain (but only a foot), France, Italy, Germany, Austria, the Scandinavian peninsula, Holland and Belgium and the British Isles, before returning home and they collected a wealth of interesting material and background Information of Europe as it stands today.

The result was something approaching a new deadlock, this time between the Presidential will and Congressional fatigue. There was some talk about adjournment and reconvening In October as a way out, but everybody except possibly the President and most ardent New Dealers was just a little too tired to make an issue over anything. Said Senator Pat Harrison, long a New Deal pillar but no longer a pillar of anything since his defeat for the job of floor leader: "I have often felt sympathetic with the old ox down in my country—that had been worked all day in the sun, who see* over in the distance a little shade under a tree and then you cannot hold that ox back; he wants to get under that shade ... I sometime* think I have traveled so fast that I'd like to get under the shade and rest a little while.. •IMAGE BUCKLER- NEW YORK: Revenue agents, for whom it was no new experience last week to send sip Harlem Negroes to Jail for bootlegging, had a new kind of evidence on which the Meggers' were convicted—a unique liquor sold wholesale at $7 for a flvegallon tin, retail at a nickel a pony. According to the thoroughgoing New York Time*, It was colored with orange peel and poasess- e4 "an aromatic bouquet with a heavier underlying odor like that of tobacco steeped in water."

No word had been received from him from Chicago. In the meantime Mr. Pearson ha* returned home In time to keep his Wesley folks from fearing that the worst had happened to him on his trip. Estate Shortage in Court Hearing Here Appointment of J. F. Overmyer of Algona as administrator of the estate of Edgar L.

Coyle of Hum boldt, and the surety company, for a shortage of some $3,500 in i.he estate funds. The case goes back to its beg-n ning in 1933, when Coyle, a Humboldt attorney, was appointed administrator of the estate. He flled a report In 1935, and at that time heirs of the estate asked for his removal and appointment of another administrator. Judge James A. DeLund at that time denied tho request. Coyle stated at the hearing that on the night of March 29, 1937, his office was robbed, and that the S3,- 500 was taken from his vault, alont with other funds, and a bottle of Irish whiskey, and that the ?3,500 was the money in question. to the Uy come to tH« fl*mw upon her per- and in the houM but not be- she bad suffered severe burns t\ NprwTarm. »nd ta»» w* «• odyTdhl U under tb* doctor's but able to.b* up an4 around.

REUNION SUNDAY, SPANISH WAR VETS A picnic dinner on a "dutch treat" basts will open the program for the veterans of the 62nd Iowa Volunteer Infantry, veterans of the Spanish- American war, who will hold their eleventh annual reunion at the fairgrounds here, this Sunday. All Spanish-American War veterans, regardless of what outfit they served in, are cordially invited to attend the gathering. From Old Company F, of the 104 men originally in the company, the only ones left here now after 39 years are W. H. Oilbride, Geo. Spongberg, Chas. H. Taylor, Geo. E. Mahoney and Joe Bestenlehner. E.

J. McEvoy, clerk of court, in the past few days. Laurence Gronbach and Zelda Neal, both of Uivermore, were issued a license on August 10. Merrill F. Sparks of Armstrong and Arlene Lewis of Lakota, were granted a license on August 10. Donald Baker and Mildred Kotala, Minneapolis, were granted a license on August 11. The day before they reached Glb- ralter a Spanish bomb had dropped on a German battleship. The German* buried their dead the day their «hlp, The Italian Roma, was In i*o& and the day After they mailed for Nice, France, the German Ships bombarded a Spanish port in retaliation. Their ship was under convoy through the danger zone. Included in the list of sights viewed were the League of Nations buildings at Geneva, the World Court at the Hague, and the Paris Exposition, which Glen said was not quite up to the Chicago World's Fair. Germany, Italy Praised Germany and Italy, even under dictatorships, seemed to be clean, orderly and progressive, Mr. Naudain stated. Chief drawbacks of some of the nations seemed to be their lack of funds to develop educational institutions—although military expenditures seem to have a bottomless pocketbook from which to draw funds. Interested In Flanders Field poppies, they viewed the Fjanders flowers, but found that the same poppies are growing all over Europe. On the return trip they left the British Isles on the Cunard line, and arrived at Montreal, Canada. Their ship was fog-bound on the Labrador coast, and came to a complete stop. When the fog lifted they found the ship was in a nest of icebergs. Everyone was thankful the ship's captain had stopped the vessel. The Naudains are visiting the parents of Mr. Naudain. the W. E. Naudains, and the V. V. Naudains, a brother, for the remainder of this month before returning to South Carolina.

Six people were riding In a car driven by John P. Palmer of Renwlck, which collided with a machine driven by Cliff Richardson, LuVerne. Both can were so badly damaged, after bring rolled over, that they may never be able to ran again, and still fate decided nobody should suffer more than a few bruise*.

Streets in the main business section of the city were pretty well packed, Wednesday afternoon, but it was nothing compared to the throngs which crowded into town Wednesday night. Highlight* of the evening program were a baseball game between the Algona Grays and the Carta Blancas of Mexico, and a free dance on a apecial dance floor erected on State street Wit Thoma's 10-plece band played, and the floor which covered over half a block, was Jammed from 9 p. m. until past midnight.

At is was, h waa nearly dead when his son wen to Investigate the pull on the trac tor, and wns ordered to bed by a doctor after the narrow escape which occurred last Saturday. Hunt was unloading oats, when r bolt in the elevator caught the cufl on the bottom of his overalls, and started twisting his clothes from his body. All of his clothing, with the exception of his cap, shoes and the feet of his socks were torn from his body, and his shirt was wrapped so tightly ubout his neck that even after his son found him, he was unable to cut the shirt with a jackknife, by sliding it underneath the shirt, and it had to be cut off from the outside. Walter Block Jury Still Unreported No report of the coroner's Jury In the death of Walter Block, Lu- Verne, whose body was found in the smouldering ruins of his father's barn, early in July, has as yet been forthcoming. Indications thus are that the case is still open, and that authorities are still working on the matter. Two state agents have still from time to time been in this vicinity investigating. It was also reported that the insurance company which carried a $1,000 double indemnity policy, with Max Block, father of the dead man as beneficiary, is making un investigation of its own in the case.
