NO 12 AGENTS NAB 6 IN COUNTY 'ALKY' RAIDS Police Crack Beer Sales, Poolhalls, by Minors Drastic action In Algona is threatened unless rigid observance of state laws and city ordinances governing the closing of beer parlors, taverns and pool halls is made, City Marshal H. A. Van Alstyne said Monday. He declared that officers have received a number of complaints that beer is being sold after midnight, and also to minors, and that minors are also being sold cigarettes. The law orders all beer sales stopped promptly at midnight, and that minors cannot be sold cigarettes, and that minors can only be sold beer when they are accomr panied by their parents or legal guardians, and the purchase is made by the latter. "In some cases," said Van Alstyne, "it seems to be the Idea that beer can be sold to folks under 21 years of age, if some- body else other than their parent buys it for them." He declared that was a direct violn- tion of the law, and would be prosecuted. He also said that strict midnight observance of closing must be made. Where cafe and restaurant licenses are held, beer taps must be closed at midnight, although the cafes can remain open as long as they please.

South Townships Plan to Link with Humboldt- Pocahontas Unit COMMITTEE VISITS EACH FARM HOME Kossuth county farmers In the southern half of the county arc anticipating the advent of rural electrification, some time In the near future, as plans were well under way here this week to make necessary arrangements and applications for a Kossuth line to be connected wlht the Humboldt R. E. A. project. Power under the set-up would be furnished from the new R. E. A. power plant, nearly completed at Pocahontns, which will supply R. E. A. current for several adjacent counties In this territory. 100 Signed 1'p About 100 have already been reported ns signed up. with a good ninny morn signed up but not as yet reported by field men working l.i the mnttcr. It was recently derided that it would be more convenient and quicker for Kossuth farmers desiring R. R. A. connections to hook-up through the Humboldt unit, than i ndeavnr to establish a separates unit for Kossuth county. In the north end of the county, whore plnns arc not quite so far advanced, It Is probable that a connection with Estherville will be made, If the plans work out, nnd enough farmers want current. Would Cmt $150,000 Estimated cost of constructing: and connecting about 150 miles of R. E. A. lines was between $180,000 and $176,000 whjch would fee loantd by y^'l^MWnent, and rewtd through charge* for current oVW If ptfrlocl of yaafi. • \ • Current Is to be supplied almost at cost. Where tho lines In Kossuth county will run will depend on the density (and concentration) of the applications. Naturally, where applications arc heaviest, lines will run. It was also pointed out that in sections where few applications for membership arc received. It Is not probable that R. K. A. hookups will be made. Memberships arc being solicited it $. r ) per fnrni, and will be refunded if the contact is not made. An Active Committee W. J. Frlmml.
