The Algona Upper Pea Moinea, Algona, Iowa, July 19,1938 Queen Winner to Travel Trail of General Custer Cross 28 Mountain Ranges Enroute to the \ West Coast Kossuth Girl Named Queen Will See This View on Trip to Coast "Westward Ho," the magic words Which have sent a thrill through travelers for generations will be certain to inspire the winner of the' Algona March of Progress Queen contest when the award is announced. August 17th on the firrt day of Algona's two-day Mnrch of Progress celebration. For early in the 18-c)ay. 8,000- mile journey, the eager excited feeling of exploration, inborn in the westward-pushing white race, will begin to assert itself. This feeling will grow as Northern Pacific train windows reveal for hundreds of miles the same identical scenery which Lewi and Clark beheld when they ventured into the then unknown Far Northwest in 1805. Over Custer Trail As far west as Bismark. North Dakota, the prize journey will lead over the same pioneer railroad which carried General Custer to that point when he started on his tragic campaign against the Sioux tribes in 1876. The Missouri River, which the Indians called the "river of troubled waters" because of its strange bub- bllngs and commotions, will be crossed between Bismarck and Mandan. Formerly the site occupied by the present big steel railroad bridge •was a buffalo ford and a favored place for Indian hunters to lie in wait. Circles of stones on the nearby hills still disclose the former locations of Indian tepees. Over 28 Mountain Ranges First in the procession of 28 mountain ranges bordering the Northern Pacific the winner will see the Amsareka, Beartooth, Gallatin and Crazy Mountains in the vicinity of Yellowstone Park. One of the numerous fertile mountain valleys will be the Gallatin, nam^d for Albert Gallatin who as Unite J States ambassador to England in 1826 successfully asserted America's j claim to the Pacific Northwest From Livingston, Montana, to the Pacific, the successful candidate will travel for 1,000 miles through mountains famed for their fur traders and trappers, scouts and Indian figures, missionaries and vigilantes, gold miners and lumbermen. But even when the North Pacific coast la reached the big journey will be only well under way. Thousands of miles more down the Pacific Coast to California, then to New Orleans and finally homeward make the prize trip a reward keenly sought. It will be the event of a lifetime for the person who leads in the competition in the Algona merchants' great contest. On her mammoth western trip, the prize winner of the Algona March of Progress Queen contest will see the region where Custer marched, where campaigns were conducted against the Indians and where Theodore Roosevelt ranched in the eighties. Many miles of colorful prairie and mountain scenery in the journey will glide past the windows of the North Coast Limited, one of the fast, luxurious trains on which the winner will travel. -Rockford Relatives Visit H.

Andereggs IOWA CORN SETS RECORD FOR JUNE—Clarinda, Iowa: Special to Algona Upper Des Moines: This stalk of corn from a field of 11 acres like it was over 6 "4 feet tall June 25th, and in full tassel, with two ears started. So far as known it is a record a early corn in southwest Iowa. It was planted .by Ross Miller, shown in the picture on April 15th, about two weeks ahead of normal planting time in this section, and was "laid by" June 14th, the earliest corn has been known to be too large to plow. for pur people and the generations of Chinese which are to come that we are struggling and will continue to Struggle . . . The Chinese will fight to the finfth, even If there is only one Inch of territory left and one Chinese living." , Leaving Hankow for Germany With 20 or more other German military advisbrs, 60-year old General Alexander von Falkenhausen added these words to the first anniversary declarations of Premier Konoye and Generalissimo Chiang: "I feel sure of China gaining a final victory. Japan will fail both in war and peace." No secret was it that General von Falkenhausen had no desire to leave China, that Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek had used all means to pe:- suaed him to remain, the German military commission departed only after peremptory orders had been issued from Berlin. It was reported that in a farewell message to the Chinese troops, General von Falkenhausen had also declared undying sympathy with the Chinese Army, that Berlin had sent him a strong reprimand for saying so. Japan is an anti-Communist ally of Alof Hitler's Germany and Benito Mussolini's Italy. She felt that Germans should not aid China, well knowing that the Germans constituted to a considerable extent the brains of the Chinese Army. Germany obliged her Far Eastern ally by recalling the commission.

Vast are the differences on each side of the color line. White-card holders, in addition to selling their cotton without undue complication. will receive a. government bounty of 24 cents a pound.
