According to the Swea City Herald, backers In that town made a quick survey and had $80 pledged in aitfjort time, If the leagu* plans Prom the stsgiGffiHnto> tHumew>* paper, we h*wi- wondered before why some definite league organization for county teams has not been formed. The teams are located within easy traveling distance, and should be natural as well as friendly rivals. Effort Made to Preserve Historic Articles Here Suggestions have been made to the local D. A. R. chapter of Algona that a collection of articles of local historical Interest be made, and placed in some suitable place for display where they can be seen at any time. The display would be of special value to children and would preserve relics of pioneer life in their own locality. At the time of the Diamond Jubilee in 1929 many articles were on display. Some of them will eventually reach the Historical building in Des Moines and others may find their way to Washington, D. C., but tn such places they will not be seen by local people. If the articles are collected here they will be preserved in their own community. One suggestion was made that the articles be housed in a specially Dinlt structure at the Call State Park. Numerous other suggestions can probably be made and any organization or individual who has some dea about the matter is urged to discuss the matter with the D. A. Ft. committee, Mrt. C. B. Murtagh, chairman, Mrs. Maude Free and Mrs. Mable Tjadcn. 3 Farm Sale Dates Listed Farm «al« date* listed for the next few week* with The Al- goua Upper I>e» Molue» are an follow: Tueeduy, Nov. Z»—J.
