The local football season is at an end. so far as playing games is concerned. Before we pass it into the discard, let us pay a few words of tribute to the Algona high school coaches and members of the local squad, who have brought this city its most successful gridiron record in some time. At the start of the season, despite several all- star players, the squad and team as a whole, seemed to have enough weak spots and a definite lack of reserve material, that could not be expected to do much with its hard schedule. But the team and coaches came through with a fight and fire that first startled, then amazed, and finally brought cheers of tribute and support from this entire community. Football is a game of sport; no team can win all of its games, all the time. But the record of the Algona Bulldogs, of losing only two games, and winding up in a tie for the title of the North Central conference, was something very few dreamed of, and is therefore all the more noteworthy. To Coaches Berger and Findley, and Captain Don Willassoh and his fighting mates, heartiest congratulations for a fine season of hard, well-played, and spirited football. Such a record this year, should stimulate players and fans alike, who have hoped for some time that Algona could begin a march toward gridiron supremacy such as it has enjoyed in the past. SAC Son port Sac Sun: Indications point to a distinct drop in the number of raffles, drawings and other {Hegal schemes this year. A year ago the country seemed to run wild with them, but lack of interest, plus some vigorous law enforcement hits put a stop to most of these plans. As far as the Sun has observed there will be few if any coupon drawings for prizes in this section this holiday season. Suit and dress clubs have practically faded out of the picture. No one is more glad of this than the majority of the operators who felt themselves forced into the "club" scheme because some competitor started It. This let-up on gambling schemes is a good sign. It shows a return to normalcy. Why should responsible and respectable Individuals and communities engage in law defiance of this kind and then talk about a 'lawless" younger generation? * * * Browbeaten by Unions Garner Signal: America has no reason to feel proud of the fact that the Duke and Duchess of Windsor felt forced, at the last minute, to postpone their tour of this country. Dissatisfaction over the Windsors' choice of manager of their tour on the part of organized labor in America was given as the cause for the quick cancellation. It was said that the former King of England might be embarrassed had he gone forward with his plans to study housing and labor conditions in this country. A country like America that prides itself on its democratic spirit should be greatly mortified to think that labor unions have sufficient strength to make so great a man afraid to visit our country. We wonder if the Duke and Duchess, with their 70 trunksful of clothes they had packed ready to leave for their trip, do not now feel somewhat .ike the couple without a country.

Kossuth county has been treated to a fine, rep- resenstative share of the state's paving program, and no complaint can be made on that score. However, there is one small stretch of highway on 169 in the north end of this county that deserves consideration in the 1938 program, and that is the 1 portion of 169 from highway 9 north to the Minnesota line. Last year Minnesota paved down to the line, and only a few miles of Intervening gravel remain between all of Iowa's finely paved roads, and the stretch from Elmore north. Governor Kraschel has indicated that the state intends to use quite a bit of black top surfacing on secondary-primary roads. If and when that portion of 169 comes under consideration, and after final decision as to its routing shall be determined, it is to be hoped that a concrete road will b e built. Although a mile of black top surfacing may cost only $7,000 to $9,000 as compared with concrete at $25,000 per mile, the difference in the cost of maintenance would In a few years offset the difference in original cost, and a black top stretch between two fine, paved highways, would leave the job only about half done, with no money saved in the long run. Opinions of Other Editors <lo««i Into the Fill-nan- Hrro Arkley World: The last state legislature in Iowa created a "law" depriving dentists from advertising, presumably in newspapers; but the state board of health has the cheek to issue bulletins and direct them to newspapers, expecting publishers to "let the public know." The Eagle Grove Eagle expresses Its opinion so: It must take a lot of crust or something for the state department of health to aend the newspapers those health bulletins. Last week we received one devoted to dental hygiene. After aiding the dentists in passing the vicious dental anti- advertising bill, making it unlawful for the dentists to put out this information as they should, they a*k the niwipapers to run it free. Well, we should have an equal amount of guts and scoot it along to the waste basket. We need a larger waste basket. Keep Gillette Ringsted Dispatch: i he republican newspapers of the state, led by Dickinson's political organ the Algona Advance, are oiling their guns to shoot L. J. Dickinson back into the senate when Guy Gillette'a term expires next year. They think that the slight dissension in democrat ranks over Gillette not being enough of a Nt- w Dealer will enable them to slip Lester Jesse over on Iowa people again. But if the Democrats aru wise they will forget Senator Gillette'.-, slight opposition to the New Deal ami unite behind him to a man.

Two youngsters down at St. Cecelia's Academy got their heads together in our weekly football contest, handed in exactly the same scores, and guessed every game correctly. Not having previously stated what we would do in case of a tie, we'll have to just give both of the boys a dollar. After all, picking every game correctly, even the Purdue-Wisconsin, 7-7 tie game, is something. We don't know which one did the picking, but the two winners are Florlan Neuroth and Allen Wagner. Each had only 29 error points. They also picked Michigan, 7-0, which was the exact score, and were otherwise close on everything except the Ohio State game, where they lost 13 of their 29 error points. Then there were five replies that missed only half a game, the tie between Purdue and Wisconsin. And on a basis of error points in this group, the results follow: 8 mos. subscription—Percy Kuhn. 43 error points 6 mos. subscription—H. E. Bartlett. 45 error points. Others in this group were Father Ahmann. 51 error points; Julian Chrischllles 54; and C. W. Nicolin, 85 error points. Your Odds and Ender had 45 error points on his picks. GROUP ONE—(missed 1H games, that is one game and tie): Don Blanchnrd, Lone Rock. 26 error points, lowest of any of the entries, but Don picked Marquette to beat Iowa State, 7 to 6, and picked Wisconsin to beat Purdue, 7 to .6 He hit the Neb- hraska-Pittsburg- game on the head, and picked Indiana, 1.1 to 10, to beat Iowa, an exact margin of three points. He deserves special mention because of the closeness of his scores to the actual outcome hut despite his low number of error points, missing the above g.irm-s eliminated him from the awards. Floyd M.

Supreme courtroom M Washington last week 250 reporters, lawyers and spectators uprose as the nine robed Just- lees filed through three apertures in the white curtains at the end of the room, took their places behind the 30-foot mahogany bench for a reading of flie day's first decision. Justice Hugo LaFayette Black, as youngest member of the court, was by custom the reader of the day's first decision, the case Involved the right of the Federal trade Commission to prevent Standard Education Society from advertising as a free gift for subscribers to Its $69.50 loose-leaf supplement service, an encyclopedia Which the F. T. C. had found normally sold at $69.50 with no charge for the supplement In his opinion, in which all of his colleagues concurred, Justice Black ruled for the commission, gave an outline of his reasoning: "Laws are made to protect the trusting as well as the suspicious. The best element of business has long decided that honesty should govern competitive enterprises and the rule of 'caveat emptor' should not be relied upon to reward fraud and deception." This opinion, the first of the court's 1937-38 term, was also the first one written by the court's newest member and an exception to the procedure whereby new Just- Ices serve an Initial period before being called upon to speak for their colleagues. When Justice Black had finished, the court proceeded to the rest of the day's business By a 5-to>4 majority—Justices Brandeis. Stone, Cardozo. ant Black strenuously dissenting—it held that a JlO.OOO gift made to an employee for "valuable and loya service" in 1931 was not taxable as income. Among eleven other decisions handed down, most important was a preliminary victory for the National Labor Relations Board in its dispute with Pennsylvania Greyhounds Lines. Inc.," a case which may have a profound effect on the legal standing of company unions. Year before last the Court's nine old men were bathed in historic limelight when they waded into the New Deal's first crop of economic measures, invalidating NRA and AAA and upholding the government's right to cancel the gold clauses in all contracts. Last year they were the center of a pol- itical'death struggle brought about by Franklin Roosevelt's desire to insure the constitutionality of his ed fratt f o* Alexander* the "Sato!

The excitement of the current court term will be different from that of the two previous ones, but no less noteworthy. Although Mr. Roosevelt's packing plan failed, this term finds the court philosophically and politically realigned and slanted In a new direction, its important cases likely to involve the rights of newly-resurgent Labor and the right of the government to enter the public utilities field. In 1936, such cases would have been judged by four rock-rbibed conservatives, three equally dependable liberals—with Chief Justice Hughes and Justice Roberts unpredictably on the fence. Currently the known balance is 4-to-3 on the other side; for while Mr. Roosevelt was not able to place an additional member in the court for each one over 70—the total would hav e been six—nevertheless, his formal defeat had been accompanied by the retirement of arch-conservative Justice Van Devanter. No matter how much his former Ku Klux Klan membership belies any inr.c.te liberalism. Justice Black, who was given the vacant chair, is a bona tide New Dealer, and may he expected to vote with the liberal wing, as he did last week. Thus in the 1M7-38 term, the liberals will have at least the Court's strongest minority.

Recent evidence: the Shirley Temple coiffure, Mae West'* gusty wisecracks, Hollywood halo-hats, a break on the rising consumption of native U. S. whiskey. To relate this last named fact to the cinema involved a statistical triumph of sorts, but the researchers of the Distilled Spirits Institute (formed after Repeal and headed by erstwhile Prohibition officer Dr. James M. Dpran) collated the findings of its sober field workers, arrived at the conclusion that screen bibbers were shown drinking Scotch almost exclusively, to the detriment of an impressionable public. To Hollywood's Hays office, the institute last month complained: 'This Institute is, of course, composed entirely of producers of American whiskey such as rye and bourbon, and they feel that an imported product which contributes little or nothing to the economic life of the U. S. seems to be unduly favored. It Is not their contention that rye or bourbon should be specified but that it might be possible to use merely the term 'whiskey slHn presented by big gatt«-hunt- nig Deputy Police ComMlssioner Harold Fowler. Although National Democratic Cnaiftnan James A. Farley Valiantly fought at Candidate Mahonejfs side to the end, realistic Franklin Roosevelt let It be khown that three days before the election he had telephoned his good wishes to Candidate LaGuardia, TWO days after election the President, apparently determined to clear the fence in one leap, took the unusual step of traveling from Hyde Park to his Manhattan town house expressly mayor. to "meet" the victorious Fiorello LaGuardia enter- and soda' which would, even in pictures with an English setting, be more correct since It is the form the British use." TIGER SKIN- NEW YORK: After an energetic survey of polling places at Election Day's dawn, New York's Mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia returned to his Fifth Aveune home, felt a tug at his coat tails, turned to shake hands with an 8-year-old admirer who cried: "It's a landscape. La- Guardia by $500,000!" Within three hours after the polls had closed that evening, every New Yorker knew there had been a landslide sive-New for Republican-Progres- Dealer LaGuardia and lis Fusion party—so sweeping that t had perhaps permanently changed the political landscape of the >iggest city in the U. S. Tammany •{all's defeated Democratic Cand- date Jeremiah T. Mahoney sent Mayor LuGuardla a congratulatory telegram at 9J15. Shortly thereafter telegrams went to the rest of ed the grey stone house on east 65th street at 3:40 p. m. Fifteen minutes later and by no coincidence up pulled the limousine of James A. Farley. FATAL REMEDY^. WASHINGTON: Latest remedy for gonorrhea and septic sore throats and a good remedy for scar let fever, erysipelas and cerebro- splnal meningitis—is sulfanilamide. Noting a great demand for sulfanilamide, 61-year old Dr. Samuel Evans Massengill, who compounds veterinary medicines in a good-sized factory at Bristol, Tennessee, this summer decided to add that drug to his line. Knowing that his Southern customers prefer their medicines In bottles (New Englanders prefer pills). Dr. Massengil sought something in which to dissolve sulfanilamide, which had hitherto been taken in tablets and intravenous injections only. He decided to use diethylene glycol, a close relative of the alcohol used to keep motorcar radiators from freezing, but never before put to this purpose. The S. E. Massengill Co. made up several 80-gaI. batches of sulfanilamide solution, labeled it an elixir (a technical pharmacological term for a drug sweetened and dissolved in alcohol), shipped it to 375 retailers—one as far away as Puerto Rico. Massengill's Elixir Sulfanilamide had by last week caused the deaths of at least 41 persons, the disability of countless more, a nation-wide scare. First warnings of trouble sounded when people who took this medicine for sore throats developed FOR TV PEWRITERS see The Algona Upper Des Molnes.
