L. McKlnnln, chairman of the state highway commission, said It would be impossible to take the road Into the primary system at present He explained that half of the money turned over to the highway commission, some eight million dollar annually, went to pay off paving bonds and interest, most of the remainder went towards maintenance and what was left was being used to close gaps in paved roads over the state. Would Maintain It Mr. McKinnin said that if the county boards of supervisors would buy the necessary 100-foot right of way along the proposed highway and obtain a PWA grant for construction of the road, that the commission would take it over nnd maintain it. A surfaced road, probably cf the black top variety, was being asked for by the delegation. .Tack Edge, Emmetsburg banker, served as chairman and Introduceu several men who expressed their views favoring the road. P. H. Underwood outlined the efforts that have been put forth the past eight years to obtain a primary road from Ringsted to Cylinder and made a motion that the commission take the road Jnto its system 1m- ItkUljr. The motion -rc . A. HuskamfrweiBBwrTif tn» Palo Alto board of supervisor!, expressed a favorable attitude on behalf of his group. E. S. Camden, chairman of the Emmet county hoard, attended the dinner but retired to the hotel lobby during the meeting nnd would not express himself on the subject. Armstrong Rnnd Discussed FollowinK Mr. McKinnln's explanation of Just how the highway funds were spent Mr. Knudson told of just what was being done to p.lvc Ringsted a surfaced road to Aim- strong this .summer. The new road is a .stabilized base highway, costing $10.000 a mile, half us much as paving. About 50 business men and farmers from Ringsted were in attendance nt the meeting. Friday pome of them were greatly disheartened at the failure of the commission to O. K. the road while others felt that chances of obtaining a government grant greatly enhanced the chance of immediate action. Dollar Day Buys Please Public; Unusual Bargains Really Click Dollar Day, held last Thursday in Algona, proved to be one of the best special shopping events held here in mayn months, according to merchants and shoppers alike. Chief reason for the success of the day was due to the fact that the Chamber of Commerce, sponsor of the event, exactde sponsor of the event, exacted promises from all participating firms that bargains offered would be sold at cost or below. The results were reported as excellent; standard merchandise was sold at prices which brought a steady stream of buyers. A poll of 22 stores, a good cross-section of Algona stores, showed that 11 firms reported business as "much better" than the usual Thursday, seven said it was "some better" and four said it wns "about average." Folks in the Algona trade territory are advised that from now on, each special trading event such as that of last Thursday will be conducted on a cost or less basis, so far as advertised items are concerned. Algona firms will be asked to cooperate in making every bargain day everything that It should be from the 'standpoint of the buyer. Watch for special sales events—they'll save you money every time. 4ATHTONKA ARE HURT IN HOME MISHAPS Misfortune Crowds into «i Two-Day Period of Accidents Titonka: A period of two days resulted in four injuries to residents of Titonka, ranging from minor to quite serious.

IS AFTERMATH OF ACTION IN RECENT TRIAL Walter Hunt, Sr., Plaintiff, Otto Westling, Defendant, Lu Verne A damage suit for $5,000 was filed in district court, Saturday by Walter S. Hunt, Sr., oT LuVerne. against Otto Westllng, also of LuVerne. The case Is an aftermath of n suit which awarded Westllng damages of $287.50 In district court here. He had charged Walter Hunt. Jr., with assault and battery In fho rage tried last week, and had sued for $4176.25. Walter Hunt, Jr., Is a son of the plaintiff In the new case. Claim False Accusations The background of the story with regard to the first case is simply that Hunt, Jr., and Westling got Into a fist fray at LuVerne samo time ngo, nftcr the junior Hunt had ncciiscd Westling ot making re- mnrks about his father. After the frncns, Wcstling sued Hunt. He wns awarded $267.50 after a four hour deliberation by a jury. In the new suit, with Hunt, senior, ns the plaintiff, it is alleged that Westling made defnmntory ro- nuirks about the plaintiff, making statements before witnesses that the senior Hunt wns afflicted with n venereal disease. As a result, the senior Hunt claims, his chnracter has been seriously defnmcd. The statements, in the petition of the plaintiff, wero alleged to have been made In the presence of Wm. Radii, a farmer near LuVerne, and Wm. Miller, a LuVerno resident. First Caw Ovpr Fight In the first case which bt ought the verdict of $267.50 for Westling, the entire case was based on the assault and battery angle. Tha court held that whatever the cause of the fight had made little or, no difference, but that the actual act of assault was the point under trial. Evidently, In view of the results nO|MLl||t ca*e, the HunU deemed It iJMvfSffiteto bring a eMn£w&ntt bawd «ti tlr.ly, on the cn*f»e*TEat they claim led to the fight and resulted In the first suit The case will not be tried until the fall term, and in the meantime the defendant, Westling, is restrained by court order from disposal of any property.
