HISTORICAL ""MARCH OFTIME •rn»n>mm«o»Tiitt FOREIGN COUNTRIES-WAR— REACTIONS TO ROOSEVELT WASHINGTON: Only foreign state to approve U. S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Chicago speech so highly as to have It reprinted in pamphlet form and distributed on all fighting fronts to encourage the troops last week was tne valencln Government of Leftist .Spain. In Madrid, Mr. Roosevelt was hailed in whole pages of heart-felt Spanish eulogy for having brought Washington out on the sidfe of Valencia. Cried Madrid's Informaclones": "There is not a paragraph In President Roosevelt's speech which cannot be fully subscribed to by us without mental reservations or distinctions." "Soviet public opinion," said Moscow's "Izvestia" ("News"), official organ of the Soviet government, "cannot fail to remark in President Roosevelt's speech the number of views directly coinciding with the ideas for which Soviet diplomacy alone hitherto has fought consistently." As head of the Popular Front Cabinet in France, Premier Camille Chautemps told the Ame.-lcan Club of Paris In a fervent after-luncheon speech: "We have found with emotion and pride in the president's Chicago speech an echo of all the principles to which we are passionately attached!" , Members of the Chinese Government, which clearly stood to gate,most by the implications of Frtildent Roosevelt's new foreign policy, blandly expressed themselves as "much gratified" last week but unrestrained were the joyous whoops of U. S. citizens resident in China. "If you boycott Japan," U. S. radio listeners were told by former Chinese Ambassador to the U. 8. Dr. Alfred Sao-Ke Sze, broadcasting from Shanghai, "you will find you have contributed to the greatest single step of progress in history!" Although President Roosevelt was offering the United Kingdom the chance of the century to extract the U. S. from isolation and team it up with Great Britain, this week Downing Street had its careful fingers crossed. In Japan, Germany and Italy prompt and angry reactions to the Chicago speech suggested that the President had gone a long way toward stinging these mutually friendly Fascist powers into a hard triumvirate. JUSTICE BLACK IN— AS ANTICIPATED WASHINGTON: First Important act of the U. S. Supreme Court's 1937-38 session last week was, as anticipated, to dispose of the petition by Lawyer Albert Levitt, that Associate Justice Hugo LaFayette Black be required to prove his eligibility to sit on the bench of the highest U. S. Court Also aa anticipated, the petition waa denied. Upper Established 1865 _______ Interest upon the part °* tne pet- Ittoner othfer thdn that of a citizen and a member of the bar of thin court. That is insuffcient. It ia an established principle that to entitle a prlvnto Individual to invoke the judicial power to determine the validity of executive or legislative action he must show that he has sustninrtl or is immediately i" danger of .sustaining a direct in- Jury ns the result of that fiction nnd it is not sufficient that he has merely a general interest common to all members of the public." ANNAPOLIS CHANGES GRfDDERSGOTO HAMPTON, FRIDAY FOR NEXT CAME Hold Second Place in Con ference After Scoreless W. C. Game Algona high school's football team will meet Hampton there, this Friday, in its third game of the North Central conference. The Bulldogs are. holding second place in the standings by a scant margin, despite being tied by Webster City, last Friday. The Standings Team W Iowa Falls ........ .................... 2 Algona ...................................... 1 Clarion .................................... 2 Eagle Grove ........... _ ...... -...1 Clear Lake ..., ........................ 1 Webster City ........................ 0 Kumboldt .............................. 0 Hampton ................................ 0 As one can see by tie standings, Hampton has tied three games thus far. Algona can grab a firm hold on second place, and a possible tie for first, by a victory over Hampton. The snowstorm, last Friday, made football almost impossible, but the Bulldogs dug in, and made a brilliant third quarter drive with straight football that was only stopped when the local elected to switch to forward passes instead of hammering the line, after going some 50 or 60 yards down the field. Some discussion was heard with regard to the eligibity of Mollenhoff, Webster City center, who recently transferred from Algona Academy. It seems that there is a conference ruling that when a student moves from one district to another, and the parents and family also move, the player may be Immediately eligible for play. But when students move from one school to another, within the same district, the player is not eligible for 18 Weeks. Hence Mollenhoff was eligible to play with Webster City, but the former St. Cecelia Academy boys, now on the high school squad, arc ineligible until 18 weeks pass.

In The WEEK'S NEWS Current Events Photographed for The Algona Upper Des Moines 2 BURNED IN STOVE BLAZE MIRACLES STILL HAPPEN—Palmer Glass, age 22, had the thrilling experience of plunging his car into a 20 foot ditch when a steel girdered bridge collapsed, at the north edge of Clarinda, Iowa, Thursday morning, October 14.

His car was swerved in the opposite direction when he slapped 6n the brakes on discovering the bridge floor sagging, the car plunging through the steel girder and landing upside down. How he escaped without Injury he does not know. When he "came to" he found himself back on the remaining part of the bridge where he, had climbed in a daze. Glass suffered only a slight bruise.
