"Oife Academy boyn are playing button this fall whether of not you know It "They have been using the diamond at the park south of .town. Whatever arrangements for Ate use of it were made is not known here. But it is known after playing a few games somebody ren*ved the plate from the pitch- er's' mound and the one at home, Wesley high school came Friday afternoon and played with paper fof bases. St. Joe and Whittemore played the Academy in a doubleheader Sunday on a like field. Now it seems, there should be some men big enough in Algona and liberal minded to permit the home boys a right to play with the non-perishable plates. But what's the use of going on. The bases and plates raltot be saved for a colored outfit next year, or next generation, and home boys can go to pot. • * * Hans Wallukalt, manager of the power dam at Rutland and brother of Chris of Algona Is thinking of seeking legislative aid in placing a $25 bounty on Algona fishermen. More than a hundred from here enjoyed the wall-eye catch- Ing at that place Sunday. (The count by note*, only). Hans is sure a track load has been carried into this town within the last two weeks. • * * Dick Shaekelford Is not only captain of this year's football team at Simpson college but was recently hired as assistant coach. This boy will bear watching. Many a big time coach today started in a small boy and had to wait until being graduated before being recognized as to coaching ability. • • • "Bowl for what alls you" is a slogan in vogue at Barry's. Kenneth Roney of Irvington believes in signs. He is one of the most consistent high point men of the local alleys. A season ago he was nursing a sore arm. The troublesome aliment kept him from picking corn. However, it bothered not with a bowling ball, which soon put it in tip-top shape. • » • Bill Finn has many jobs and meets many people in a business way. As a member of the Junior Chamber of Convnercc he sold his quota of ten season tickets to high school football games. That Is he sold nine and retained one for himself. Before Friday night he sold his own ticket ten flmes. Each time he sold It he returned for another. That's the spirit of the Junior Chamber and It Is on the road to success. • * • Ted Larson gave a demonstration of steaking n fish at the Smoke Shop. So many fish are coming In from Rutland, Ted was asked to teach the fishermen the right way of cleaning one. In less than two minutes he had the fish ready for the pan, sans skin, scales, fins and bones, without a loss of even an ounce of meat. Ted did nick a finger with the sharp knife but then that to a part of the art ••• lilf,**** ing for specs! on a track team or crosa country run we recommend Attorney HI White.

The dust hadn't settled when HI waa on the return trip to hta office, with a smile. Tbe alley from the Norton lumber offices to the Lalng & Muckey shop is a short cut to the post office for east enders. Almost a continuous line of pedestrians is wending its way daily over this route. A few patches in the pavement would help to make the alley more popular. When a fellow does a man some good or helps with a boost he is more or less offended later on. Wonder if Hodgepodge didn't err in selecting a name to fit the writer of this column? Some weeks ago Hodgepodge told bis public he did not print names in Ms column. Of course, newspaper men are all like that. Hv. »iy. What u neat bit of advertising in the Colyum in last week's Advance. Alien telling Sperbeck of Swea City that the wise guys here send out of the state und save 49c per carton on cigarettes. Where's that old 'Trade at Home" spirit? Seventeen business men or more in Algona have paid this city and state a license fee to sell the things. Part of them advertise in the local papers. Do the out of state dealers send in their ads? Do they pay tuxes and build up the home town? Well, what's the use, again? Do they or don't they? Let's all send out of town for everything. What d»"^ou say Regardless of Alien's attitude toward the matter it should not have gone in print. What he shoulc have told the public and been rightfully upheld in the storm is that some business men take their monthly statements to the newspapers made out on forms anc blanks printed in nearby towns FMftnkT which local jobbers coulc put out as cheaply and as good or better quality as sending away for them.

TITONKA HAN WINS IN LIQUOR TRIAL CLEAR LAKE IS ALGONA FOE ON GRIDIRON, FRIDAY Fans Hoping For More Adequate Seating Space At Athletic Park Algona high school will attempt o score its first football victory of :he season, Friday evening under Jie lights here, when it meets Clear L<ake high school In a North Central conference game. The game starts at 8 p. m. Clear Lakes conies here with a record of having been defeated twice this year, but both games were against tough opponents. Charles City down the Lakers, 14 :o 0, and the Charles City team lost by only a touchdown to Mason City. Clarion defeated Clear Lake, 20 to 7, but the Cowboys have another cyclone. Must Brush Up Defense That Coaches Berger and Finday must patch up their defense was made evident in last week's game with Emmctsburg, in which the Irish won, 12 to 7. This does not mean that the defense wasn't fair enough at times, especially through the line, but the tackles and ends do lack exper- ence on turning In plays, cutting through interference, and breaking up plays before they get started. The Bulldog, offense looked good, with a fast, scrapping backfield :hat drove through for many gains against Emmetsburg. Whether or not Algona has a good season will more or less depend on whether or not Schulz, tackle, and Cnoklln, also a tackle, and the ends develop as Is hoped for. The boys are playing their first year of competition, and can be expected to mprove with every game. Where Are Bleachers? Much dissatisfaction has been expressed — and we are passing it on n print — regarding the question of places for fans to sit during the rames. With automobiles now barred from the athletic field, because of the widening of the field and laying of a new track, which is an hoped far some of s«ats capable of handling one- fifth or less of the crowd is all there is at the field at present. It was understood that the park board, city council or somebody was going to put up some steel bleachers, but perhaps things have been delayed. Good work has been done on the field thus far, and if some good bleacher seats can be provided, the local park will rank on a par with any In this section. Brings Home Bride To Spring Surprise Wesley: Frank Fox, popular and well known farmer and trucker, living four miles north of town, stole a march on his many friends here in September by driving to Missouri to visit relatives and friends. Frank returned home Saturday, the 25th of September, but not alone. He was accompanied here by his wife, formerly Maude Smith of Iconlum, Missouri. The couple were married on September 14th. They spent the remainder of their time continuing to visit friends and relatives, and upon their return have taken up their residence on Mr. Fox's farm, north of town. Girl Struck by Car Wednesday A. M. Eleanor Steinman, student in the local school, was injured slightly, Wednesday morning, when struck by a car driven by Don White of Algona. The little girl had just been let out of her parents' car. when she dashed across the street into the path of White's machine. Her face was bruised, and her lip and knee cut, and s~he was shaken up in the mishap. After being taken to a doctor for treatment she waa released, however, and will suffer no serious injury. Algona Boy Regular On Creighton Squad Omer Kelly, above, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Kelly of Algona, a former football star on St. Cecelia's Academy team in this city. Is now playing center on Coach Marchie Schwartz's Creighton University football team. He is ranked as one of the outstanding players on the Bluejay squad. Photo from Omaha World-Herald. LOSS OF HORSES FROM DISEASE IN AREA8PERCENT Survey Made By Bank - Among FflTtoentflives Accurate Figure An average for Kossuth county of about 7 and 8-lOths of the horses have died as a result of sleeping sickness. This interesting and accurate information was obtained by R. H. Miller, president of the Iowa State Bank, in a survey that the bank has been conducting for several weeks. Questlonaires were gent out to the owners of horses on which the bank holds a mortgage. There were 107 answers received, affecting 604 horses in all. A total of 47 of the horses had died, or the average shown above. Some estimates had been running much higher, aa high as 20 per cent. Although the smaller percentage does not minimize the loss to those whose animals have died, it is encouraging in that it shows the estimated higher percentages have been wrong. Bowling Season To Open Monday The bowling wafson tn Algonn will get under way next Monday, October 4, when the Barry alleys will be opened to the public for the fall and winter season.

Swea Boy Joins Big League Team Artie Deim, well known Swea City athlete, returned home last week after playing a season of baseball with Williamston, N. C., in the Costal Plains League. The team he played for belongs to the St. Louis Browns, and at the end of the season the team retain ed his contract, which means that the possibilities are good that he will be taken along with the St. Louis team for spring training, or sent to the Texas league. la Radio Speaker Virginia 'Mwk, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Cari Morck. recently el- eoUd freshman queen at the Un- ivcraity of Minnesota, spoke over the radio wv«ral evening* ago, in connection with freshman week work.

Billion More Bushels than Last Year Are Predicted Washington: Summarizing Its revisions of earlier estimates of this year's U. S. crops, the Department of Agriculture last week Indicated that total value for three major crops—corn, wheat and cotton will be $4,600,000,000, largest since 1930. Total farm income from the sale of all crops plus playments by th« Agricultural Adjustment Administration will total up to nearly $9,000,000,000, largest since 1919's $10,479,000,000, and more than a billion greater than last year. Corn—Present estimate for this year's corn crop is 2,549,000,000 bu. •109,000,000 bu. less than estimated a month ago but R billion more than last year. Wheat—With a crop now estimated at 885,950,000 bu. largest since 1931, and last week's price of $1.0!i a bu., the U .S. wheat crop is worth about $1,000,000,000. Wheat has already been harvested, so the department estimate is pretty sure to be right. Including last year's 90,- 000,000-bu. carry-over, wheat on hand amounts to 975,950,000 bu. of which some 775,000,000 bu. will be needed in the U. S. With 200,000,000 bu. more to dispose of, the U. S. may become an Important wheat exporter for the first time since 1932. In the world's wheat marts, the U. S. will this year have little competition from Canada or the Danubian countries, both having fall crops. Argentina and Australia expect fair crops and Russia a huge one. Last week European demand for U. S. wheut manifested itself strongly for the first time this season and on one day nearly 1,000,000 bu. were sold abroad. 1,307 Women Attended Movie Cooking School Nothing but unstinted prnise greeted the showing of the first motion picture rooking school ever presented in Kossuth county.

Store A quirk of the law tlmt WHS unknown tn mnny persons hearing :he case, resulted in the acquittal of Hatnm Bocokholdt. Titonka. on a charge of illegal possession of liquor, Wednesday morning, ns the first jury trial was concluded. Judge George A. Henld ordered a directed verdict in favor of the defendant. Boeckholdt, in his defense, stated that liquor found In his car by state agents, was not his, and that he did not know the liquor was there. Herman Boeckholdt, a cousin of the defendant, testified that he placed the liquor there. Herman entered pleaof guilty to a similar charge several months ago. was fined, and paid his fine, and thus his connection with the case was cleared up. Hamm, at an earlier trial, denied his guilt and connection with the liquor, and was granted a new trial when an error was found in the Instructions of the judge that heard the case nt that time. Tlie court verdict therefore sets tlie precedent of saying that if liquor is carried In a person's car, without the person's knowledge, the aforesaid party cannot be convicted for illegal possession. Sitting on the jury were Leona Christensen, Earl Taylor, Alfred Barslou, Clyde Sanders, Francis Teeter, Dorothy Pearson, Thomas Engcsscr, John Boyer, Merman Bussle, Anna Larson, John Bisen- iu.'i ami Elvidgc. L. A. Wlnknl, county attorney, represented the state, and H. B. White was attorney for Bocck- holdt. Holdup Man Gets 10 Years BasJ Lsymon, , variously b«e» given a« Blue Tmg Minn., Missouri and M!ohl|r»n, sentenced to 10 years In Fort Madison penitentiary, Wednesday morning, after being chergcd with robbery. D. C. Hutchison waa appointed his attorney by the court. Lnymon was the second person to figure in the robbery of the Walter Meyers' Deep Rock service station here, Sept. 2.
