After the veterans have been accounted for, the Algona football picture Is considerably dimmer. With high schools like college*, stressing reserve power, the Bulldogs are likely to suffer In comparison with larger schools. The problem is further complicated by the presence of Emmetsburg as Algona's opponent In the season's opener on September 23. Since the westerners always turn out strong elevens, Findley will have little opportunity to test new players. Emmetsburg Is not one of the conference schools which will play the California style medley football game at Clarion September 20. In this contest the four western schools will be paired off against the four eastern teams with Algona meeting Iowa Falls.

This game was played before the largest crowd that has turned out for a baseball game in this town for mnny a year, John Christensen reported to this paper. Had the Bancroft pitcher, Lefty Hntten had the support that Patterson was furnished by his team mates the game would have gone Into extra Innings with a scoreless tie nt the end of the ninth. However, the locals, playing hends-up ball all the way, took good advantage of costlv errors In the fifth inning and managed to send four runs across without getting a single hit In this inn- gona an unusual educational background. The town, says the Guide, wns firs; settled by Asa C. and Ambrose A. Call who arrived in 1R54. Although the town was known as Call's Grow It was renamed at the suggestion of Airs. Asa Call, the name beitic. derived from the word. Algonquin. The county, containing 977 square miles, was named for the Hungarian patriot, Louis Kossuth. His zeal in the cause of liberty In Hungary made him popular In Amerlcn. In the spring of 1857 immediately after the Spirit Lake Massacre fear prompted the building of the Algona Stockade which enclosed th" town hall. When it was found thj Indian scare was baseless, the stockade was torn down, and the lumber used for plank roads.

Complaints began pouring Into the office of Sheriff Casey Loss last week, telling of the sale of merchandise by the transient peddler, much of which turned out to ba misrepresented. A Suave G«it Suave as an old time politician. th« stranger struck Titonka and vicinity about two weeks ago. Hla truck was well loaded, his salesmanship of a good caliber and the public in a buying mood. His prices were remarkably low. Combing the countryside, he found many receptive prospects, and sold his hardware, paint and other merchandise with ease, always for spot cash. After the customer supply had been exhausted, he moved on to new fields, chiefly In the Lakota and Swea City neighborhoods. Paint BniHhed Off A few days after his departure, things began to happen. One fann- er living between Titonka and Lakota had purchased 60 gallons of paint, and aftre apply it, found the stuff would not stick. In fact, when he brushed his hand over the dried surface, the "paint" came off as a chalky, powdery deposit. That was only the beginning:. Within a short time other similar cases began to crop up, and the county sheriff's office was called Into the matter.
