Approximately 8,000 to 8,000 people passed through the fairgrounds' gates during the afternoon. The crowd in the grandstand during th> afternoon was estimated at 4,000 and in the evening the grandstand was packed to its capacity. Algon- mns and Kossuth county residents came to see the Centennial pageant, the free acts In front oi the grandstand and the brilliant display of fireworks which closed the evening show. In the afternoon two baseball games started the entertainment, the Bancroft vs. Junior League All- Stars game beginning at one p. m. and the Brownie-Fairmont class following at 3 p. m. The program on the outdoor stage started soon after the first ball game was under wny. In the horse racing the steed owned by S. A. Sandvig of Thor won the day'<* t, taking two firsts out of three heats. The horse owned by Johnson of Lcdyard was second, Chas. Hurley ot West Bend third and the poney owned by Al Jorgenson of Algona took fourth. The jallopy race proved to be one of the hits of the day. The crowd got everything, well almost everything, of an Indianapolis classic— blazing speed, roaring motor, the acrid fumes from the exhausts, evtn a crash. The grandstand was electrified when Bernard BrlirK*, AlRorm, after booming down the straight away at almost SO miles per hour crashed on the turn. Drlggs was piloting a fast Model T Special and was pressing the leaders closely nt the time thp speetaou- Inr nccldcnt occurred. Striving to make up lost ground the Intrepid pilot took his roaring steed Into the turn too fast and the Ford quivered, snorted and then » turned upside down. Briftgs escaped with n shoulder Injury. Howard Pyer, Ledyard, won the event, driving the distance at a surprising rate of speed. George McVey of Algona. was second and Vester Schott. Algona, third. Hnrvev Inghani. nt present editor of the res Moines Register, formerly editor of the Algona Upper DPS Moines anil n pioneer Algonian. pave a brie/, speech which was one of the highlights of the afternoon program. Mr. Ingham mentioncl his birth in Algonn and said th»t lie had always kept his regard for Kossuth county. He talked on the the responsibility of the people today to carry forward what had been started by the preceding generations. Mr. Ingham stressed somewhat the unrest pervading the world tn- dny and emphasized that it would "take olear thinking, saneness a.i.l cohesion of effort to save what was already gained." Mr. Ingham was accompanied by his wife on his visit to Algona. Mart Weaver, another long tim? resident of Algona. also tallied on the history of Algona particularly pioneer days and declared that it is the early -lays, on whK-h ho is ail authority. Iowa history was renacted by Kos- Mith county the pageant in the evening in one of the colorful highlights of the program. Although over 160 people from all over Kossuth county took part, the pageant kept in smooth continuity throughout as group after group took the stage depicting the different periods in the development of Iowa. The pageant was in charge of M~r=. E. \V. Hanson of Algona who worked in cooperation with 4-H groups and other county organizations to singe the spectacle. Be* Jltote Established 1865 ALOONA, IOWA, TUESDAY. Jl'LY 5. Pa ircs VOL -NO. BANCROFT DRUBS JUNIOR LEAGUE ALL-STARS, 11-5 Bancroft's American Legion junior league champions conclusively demonstrated their ritrht to the tit! by outclassing the Junior League All-Stars yesterday 11 to 5. Tho game was part of the Fourth of July program at the Algona fairgrounds. The All-Stars represented the pick of the league outside of members of the championship team but in yesterday's game Bancroft might easily have been the star nine. Score In Pint They opened the first inning by scoring two runs on two hits and a Star error. The All-Stars got back one run in their half b'ut Bancroft scored two more in the second and two more in the third for what proved the winning runs. The All Stars scored two also in the third and two in the fifth at which time they trailed by 7 to 5. Bancroft scored four runs in a cluster in tho sixth inning, however, to put the game on ice. Neither team could score in the seventh inning, the final frame A plentiful number of errors contributed to the scoring both teams being guilty of numerous misplays. The All-Stars had six charged against them while Bancroft had seven. Start Get Three lilt* Exceptional pitching by the Bancroft staff was a big factor in its victory. Although the All-Stars scored five runs several of them were unearned and they could get only three safe hits off the pitch- Ing of Bancroft's firing battery. Christensen, Murray and Priebe figured in most of Bancroft's scoring while Arndorfer, Watts and Devine accounted for all of the Stars' runs. Thilges, Algona left bander, started on the mound for the All- Stars, Johnson pitching for the first three inning for Bancroft. Stew McFadden called balls and strikes behind the bat while Jim Watts umpired the bases. Summary: Bancroft H R E Devine, 2b 0 0 1 Christensen, as 2 Z S Murray, c 0 Priebe, cf 1 MRS.

Poultry Thefts Hit Irvington Irvlngton: There have been several instances recently in the Irv- Ington vicinity where farmers have reported the theft of poultry. Among those reporting such losses are the Elmer Weavers and Nobel Frlder«s. Mrs. Weaver h«cl about 125 chlckn taken and at the Frlderes farm home, all were taken but thirteen. There have been several suspects who have been watched, and this vicinity is of the opinion that anyone of such a low character as to steal chickens should get the fullest penalty of the law. 96 Still Hottest Day This Summer Although hundreds of perspiring citizens of last Friday, July 1, will dispute the fact, the official temperatures for that day as recorded here was 94 degrees, two less than for June 22, which thus far holds the high mark for the year of 96 degrees.

Despite heavy spring rains which retarded corn planting and cultivating, crop experts are now predicting a fine corn yield as a result of the recent hot days, and comparatively cool evenings. Hal Cowan stated that the firm intends to construct a new store, which is to be occupied by Christensen Bros. firm. The Chrlstensen firm, headed by L. M. Christensen of Esthervllle, has been anxious to locate here again, since the flre which wrecked the old store here, early this spring. In addition to bringing Christensen Bros, back to Algona, the deal will provide a new, modern store building on State street, replacing an old frame, building, sadly in need of repair. Mrs. O. H. Holmes Dies in the West Word comes this morning from Gus Peek of Portland, Oregon, telling of the death of Mrs. O. H. Holmes, wife of a former Algona Congregational minister, who died at Ellensburg, Washington, Tuesday. June 12. Mrs. Holmes had been librarian of the Roger City library, but resigned about a year ago after the shock of her husband's death and a subsequent illness had caused her to take a leave of absence. May Haskill was born in Lawrence, Kansas, October 21, 1873 The Holmes family left Algonit 25 or 30 years ago and went eventually to Walla Walla, Washington. Two children survive.

The location considered for the shell was the Swimming Pool Park. Estimates were presented as to the cost of the project. These estimates Included not only the cost of a band shell, but also the cost of desirable landscaping and drainage for the purpose of beautifying the park. Leslie T. Saul, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, was instructed to communicate with an architect in order to determine the cost of securing plans for a proper band shell. It is hoped that the erection of a band shell, as well as the work on the park, may be developed in a WPA project in the near future. A beer and cigarette license was granted to Alex Dermnnd. proprietor of what was formerly the Pierce Cafe. By a resolution of the council, Algona citizens may turn water meters over to the city who will maintain and repair them. At present with individual citizens owning their own meters there has been complaint because of expense incurred in repairing them. No other business was concluded but the council members heard complaints on housing from proper ty owners and Dr. John Keneflck, city health official. > Dr. Kenefick protested the erection of little shack homes principally on the north side of town, as unsanitary and unsightly. Property owners object also on the grounds that the little dwellings are eyesores and ns such cause n loss in value to abutting property. The decision of the council wns thnt since there is no specific onl- cen Wolfe. Mary Eileen Devine and Inancc to cover the situation there ~" ~ ' Political Parties Gird for Kossuth Vote Campaigns Kossuth republicans and democrats held their county conventions. Saturday morning in Atgona, anil prepared for the drive from now until the general election in the fall. Both parties had about an turnout, with some 40 republicans meeting in the Legion hall, and about the same number of democrats congregating in the court room.

Warning on Ballots Again it is necessary to state that the only official ballot boxes are to be found in the offices of The Algona Upper Des Moines and the Kossuth Advance. Contestants are asked to put binders or string around large packages of votes when handing them in—it saves much times in the counting. This week's total required practically all day Sunday, after several hours of preliminary work on Saturday afternoon. Also, ballots are only good for as many credits as are printed on them. Changing the toTals in ink will make no difference, as ballots are sorted by their colors, and counted acordingly. Nobody is authorized to change the credit value of any ballot. This week a meeting will be held at which time preliminary prepare- j t-ons for the two-day celebration, August 17th-18th will be worked out. The queen will receive hr.r reward at the celebration, and the $50 cash prize will be presented at that time also.
