Fairmont Minn., made the casting a three nnn show by taking second plare in the FIRST TEST FOR BULLDOG GRID TEAM THIS WEEK Algona Eleven Plays in Round Robin Tonight; Meets Emmetsburg, in Game There, Friday After a minor quiz In the Clarion medley game tonight (Tuesday), A1- gona high school's 1938 eleven gets Its first big test at Emmets1>urg this Friday. Buddog Mentor "Hop" Findley would make no definite prediction on his team's chances but i? satisfied that his charges will put on a rousing show. FJnrt there Is the Clan on "Callf- orhla style" game to be played. Al- Mfia will play the first quarter ifalnst towa Falls and in the sec- fflad period, Humboldt and Hampton will take over at the spot where the first pair of teams left off. Webster City and Clear Lake play the third quarter and Eagle Grove and Clarion finish the game. The backfleld is nearly set* with regulars. Long, Lee and Michel are ready to go. Lewis Neville or Bruce Mpler will get the call at the fourth post with chances favoring Neville, as Miller Is likely to be used at end, the question mark position on the eleven. In the line Captain Bud Anderson will be ready "to hold down his center post. Bob Conklln, a 180- pounder, has apparently clinched one guard position and the other •will be filled by Clarence Devlne or Bud Morck. Dale Ehrhardt has moved up after Jess Reynolds' Injury and will handle right tackle with big Wesley Schultz at the other. Reynolds has returned to practice, but probably will not play on- Friday. Lloyd Spear Is the strongest candidate for one of the end posts with Julius Baas a contender for the other with the possibility that Bruce Miller may play at one of the flanks. In the backfleld Rugged Junior Long seems likely to become the wheelhorse of both the attack and defense with Kenny Lynk lost by graduation. With Lynk to pass, kick and run the team, Long was used as a "heavy duty blocker and line backer. 2>tit this season the husky backfleld nee may come into his own as n real triple threat halfback. Long Is a hard drlvlne runner nnd of the durable type, which is probably fortunate this venr, since replacements nre not in sicrht. Lonsr. Michel an<l Fullbick Lee will all p*ass according to Findley*. 1 ! present plans and Michel will call signals in addition to doing n lot of ball carrying. Lcc Is probably the best passer on the squad nt this time. Nothing much is known about Emmetiburjr. Led by its center Hand, who will give Cnptain Anderson a battle, the Emmet line is.big, tough and experienced. It is reported that the Westerners' back field is green. Last year the Bull dogs lost to Emmetsburg 12 to 7 when the Emmet county team com pleted a touchdown pass in the last seven seconds of play so with the two teams about even In the matter of returning veterans the game is regarded as a toss-up.

IOWA, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER'2()' VfKW Ton VOL. 35.—NO. 38 In Ihe WEEK'S NEWS CURRENT EVENTS PHOTOGRAPHED FOR The Upper Des Moines One of the scenes hardest to believe was that Iowa farms could be completely swamicd "•' -• water. In the above picture, the C. N. Humphrey farm, four miles south of Algona. la shown woil snmratcd with water. The house and all barns, were caught in the overflow current from the Uu- per Dos Moines river, which is about a half mile from their home. Enterprising Algona citizens who called the city building early had water softeners installed In their homes for a free UO-day trial last week. Softeners will be installed in 20 Algona homes to try out the softening system proposed by an Iowa company. The eight homes in which the first softeners were installed were: Matt Streit, Earl Griffith, Dr. C^H. Cretzmeyer. Al Spongberg. Mrs. F. A Corey, W. J. Payne, Dr. John Kenefick and Mat Selzer. No difficulty is anticipated in finding trial homes for the other softeners. Aa an alternative to putting in a municipal softening plant at great expense the city agreed to try out the home softeners manufactured by an Iowa company. Under the agreement softeners will be placed in 20 Algona homes and used free for 90 days. If satisfactory the city will presumably order more according to demand. Marcella Thill On West Coast Marcella Thill, Algona/s March of Progress Queen, was In Seattle today, or on her way to British Columbia. A note from her was received on Monday morning ut the Upper Des Moines office, mailed from Fargo, N D She reports i.hat she had a fine time during her day's stay in Chicago, and is looking forward to the thrill of a lifetime. Marcella said that it was hard work trying to write on a train. especially when one would rather watch the scenery.

Not wanting to lose the money invested, he approached a friend on the quiet and offered to let him in on a bargain.

The burse man. aguil to yet back on tile grade, mid went home, but Mr. Wai-burton wa>; carried across the ditch by the swift current, where he grabbed hold ,)f a wire fence, and managed to hold on until some boys got a rope and threw it to him. He tied it around his waist and was pulled to safety. Aside from exposure and shock. Mr. Warburton suffered no serious consequences. A story is told us of two young men living in the Portland vicinity, who went to a dance at Bancroft, last Wednesday night. They enjoyed the dance, but when they went to return home found a fence ca-- ried by a current across the road home. They had to return to Bancroft, where they were forced to stay for another 21 hours. Cornfields and gardens in the lowlands were badly damaged. The Carl N.
