HISTORICAL DEFT. BULLDOGS TAKE 27-0 LICKING AT EMMETSBURG Irish Score Three Times on First Seven Plays; Algona Defense Stiffens AfterShakeup > Algona's Bulldogs took a 27 to 0 ' trouncing from Emmetsburg Friday night, as the Palo Alto county team ran wild In the first quarter to score three touchdowns on the first seven plays of the game. With a smart Emmetsburg field general exploiting weak spots In the Algona line, Emmetsburg put on a whirlwind start. After Algona had lost the ball on downs on jts own 45-yard line. Chuck Warner, fullback, ripped off a first down, Bryant, flashy left half, made it first and eight to go for a touchdown on the second play and on the third, Warner smashed over for the touch- doWn. Warner's try for the extra point struck the crossbar-. Run Ends Ragged Algona received the kick-off and after being stopped on two plays kicked only to have the Bm- metsburg safety man run the ball back over the midfield stripe. Warner made It first and ten on Algona's 27 yard on a plunge and Bryant on . Emmetsbm-g's fifth play of the game went the rest of the way on a sweep to score. Warner plunged through the center of the line for the extra point making the score 13 to nothing. The Bulldogs again received the kick-off but on the first play an Algona pass was Intercepted by Bmmetaburg's quarter back, Joe Green, who ran the ball back to the Bulldog 16-yard line. Warner drove over the goal line on the next play, the seventh Emmetsburg had run that evening, and his place kick for the extra point was good, making the score 20 to 0. With the Emmetsburg team roll- Ing In high, stunned Algona fans waited for the massacre to continue btft changes In the Bulldog line-up brought Emmetsburg's advance to a halt. Coach Findley had Junior Long, burly left half back. In the line at an end position on defense and the other half back, Bruce Miller, took over the other flank on defense and for a considerable part of the game on offense with Lewis Neville play- Ing half back. Long at the defensive end post was able to knock down Irish blockers leaving the linebacker with a clear shot at the ball- carrier or else turn the play Into Wesley Schultz, the big tackle, whose play, with that of Long's, was one of the bright spots of the game for Algona. Long, Schultx Star Long and Schultz checked Emmetsburg's offense on the right side of the line and better work on the other side cut down the Irish gains there. The Emmetaburg quarter* back then directed hip play at the iles ror~ Wanwr^'tftknife through, but-tit* Bulldog* slowed down the Irish attack If they could not completely stop It with big Wesley Schultz being greatly Instrumental In holding the Emmetsburn •quad during the second and third quarters. In ( . the third period, Joe Green, raced around end from the Algona 40 to the Bulldog four yard line but the play was called back. Emmets burg scored Its final touchdown on H plunge by Warner In the last qunr. ter. A pass, Bounds to Beatty, gave them an extra point. Whatever the Bulldogs may learn from beating one thing Is certain, their line play will have to be dras tlcally Improved If they arc going to win. On the few occasions Algona had the ball during Friday's contest the backs had to block off men In their own back field, leaving the runner without Interference as he hit the line. Junior Long, going almonst alone, made several runs for good gains, but it is apparent that without a line the veteran backs wi'1 go no place. Using the two half backs at defensive ends may partially solve the problem there but the team's blocking was weak and the line was outchurged by Emmetsburg although the Irish were charged with no fewer than six holding penalties. Next Friday the Bulldogs go to Clear Lake to open their North Cen- tinl conference schedule in a night game. The Line-up* Algona tipper jNofne* Established 1865 ALGONA, IOWA, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, " Ten VOL NO. NEWSPAPERSTO PLAY HOST AT BANQUET TONTTE It's All Free, and We Ex pect a Big Crowd. Will We Be Disappointed? We Think Not! Algona business men—and business women, too—will be guests of the two Algona newspapers this evening, Tuesday, at a dinner and program to be held at the Hotel Algona. The meeting is scheduled to get unler way at 7 p. m. when the group will sit down to a fine meal. Purpose of the meeting is to go over the "grass roots" advertising plan, and to hear several talks on advertising and merchandising by speakers well versed on the subject. Six Meetings In State Six such meetings are being held in the state of Iowa, all sponsored by the Iowa Press Association. Algona was selected as one of the six localities In which the meetings are being held. Newspapermen from towns all through this territory have also been Invited to attend. The chief address on "Advertls Ing and Merchandising" will last about 40 minutes. Neither Algona paper definitely knows the subject matter of the talk, or who will deliver It. The Iowa Press Assocla tion Is handling the entire program for the papers. "Grans Root*" Angle With regard to the "grass roots' angle, part of the talk will explain how a certain per cent of every piece of merchandise sold by local merchants Is appropriated to adver. Using, but too often this money is spent far from the point of sale, and does not benefit the local merchant. The Iowa Press Association speaker will outline ways and means that local merchants may be able to help get some of this advertising appropriation for his own use, thus giving him more advertising where it does him some good, without added expense to himself. And, yes, the entire affair Is free —with the newspapers paying the bill. A good crowd Is certain to be present. * ALGONA C OF C MEETING NEXT WEEK There will be a general meeting merc«, ^Woiiaiy,, pctober B, at 8 p. m. at the Legion hall here, Major Leslie Saul announces.

Kossuth Roads Weathered Floods Kossuth county road.s nrc in good shape despite the recent down pour and flood waters according to reports at the county engineer's office. The chief damage done was to road approaches to bridges, five such being wanned out. No bridges, however, were actually torn down by the flood.

It was not a question of who was I were entirely impervious to Mis;. the goat, but "whose were the goats" McEnroe's coaxing and rounded the Friday morning when thret of them, two billy goats and a kid, took over State street. Before their brief reign was ended the trio of butters had met a number of Algona personages and given State street a thorough investigation. The horned and hoofed vis. itors were first noticed on the court house lawn. There, our prospective judge, G. W. Stlllman, speculatively but apparently Impressed with the situation, did not open up with any offense. Since no one knew where they came from, it was suggested to Auditor E. S. "Duke" Klnsey that he capture the beasts and secure them until such time as the owner might arrive to claim his* property. Kinsey wanted no part of said goats, however, and the matter was referred to Deputy Sheriff Art Cogley. Mr. Cogley admitted that the goaU were for the time being on county property and within his jurisdiction but that he could see no reason for arresting the said goats unless the U. D. M. reporter would file a charge against them. The goats settled the problem themselves by ambling across the street where Kathryn McEnroe, second place winner In the recent March of Progress Queen contest, met them. Miss KtcBnroe, a farm girl, decided to put the goats Into the old post office building for safe keeping but the contrary beasts corner, pausing in front of the Barker drug store and the A. & P. store, where N. C. Rice, local theatre man. ager and his dog, Nipper, met them. Nipper was inclined to assert his authority but thought differently of the matter when the three animals advanced on him heads down. Mr Rice and Nipper then backed from the scene leaving the goats in command, making tentative passes at bystanders. It was at this point that the ln«- was called in and Chief of Police H. A. Van Alstyne hove upon the scene. Whereas the goats had successfully resisted the judicial dignity of Jerry Stillman, the charm of B March of Progress queen and the authority of a prominent local business man, they submitted meekly to "arrest" by Chief Van Alstyne .who herded them down the street to the squad car. loaded them Into the back seat, and took them out to the fairgrounds where they were put in "protective custody.?' Questioned on his surprising skill In the matter Goat-herder Van Alstyne said aim ply, "They smell awful bad." Afterward: Cliff Johnson claimed ownership of the goats Saturday. He •••snorted their loss, and was told they were at the fair grounds. He found them sitting on the top row of seats in the grandstand, nil rurl- ed up for a night's sleep. Cliff lives In the north part of town, and says his goats broke out of their pen.

City Auditing Bill Up For Discussion A more detailed accounting of the Algona city auditing bill is expected to be given at the regular monthly meeting of the city council Thursday night. City officials anticipated that u reply from the auditor will be forthcoming to the letter bent by Mayor Specht asking for more complete information its to v>hy the bill was so large. At the last monthly meeting at the end of Argust the council decided to request some additional information from the state auditor concerning the amount of the bill. In the interim the matter has dropped out of sigiit while the letter to the state official was being framed and a replay awaited. Not expected to come up at the meeting are such matters as the diesel engine installation, the digging of the new well and the trial of the home water softener system. The diesel engine is being installed but it will be some time before the council will be able to inspect it in running order. Work is progressing satisfactorily on the new well. All the casing has been laid down and sand is now being pumped out of the "pocket" at the bottom of the main shaft.

Academy Wins Two, Loses One, In Week's Ball Games ££$ftiM -pitching ferlth good support behind It high lighted three Acnd cmy games last week, of which th« St. Cecelia won two and lost one With Kajcwski and Watts each tossing four hit games, St. Cecclir defeated Kmmctsburg and St. Joi » to 5 (iiul 5 to 0. respectively, and in between those contests lost n to 0 decision to the tough Bancroft Academy. Although Knjewski held Emmet.s- burg to four hita and struck out nine nine wulhs helped the Academy'. 1 opponents to collect five runs. However, Kt. Cecelia's was hitting too. and after scoring four runs In the third inning were never behind. Em. rnetsburg made the game close until the final inning when four more Al- gonu runs put the contest on ice. Watts was the leading hitter of the ilny, with two hits in two official times at bat.
