HISTORICAL DE*»T. s.,,,33 BULLDOGS SMACK SrlK$R, 20-6, FOR FIRST WIN Webster City Next Foe on fHday, There; Lee Puts all Three Algona Touchdowns Again showing big improvement over the previous week Algona's Bulldog eleven delighted a y large crowd of home fans by winning Its first game of the year and the first at home, trouncing Spencer 20 to ,8 under the local flood lights. Frt- day night The victory was a costly one, however, for Algona lost the services of Bruce Miller, star end and halfback, for the year. Just as the first half ended, Miller suffered a torn cartilage in his leg, which may keep him out of action the rest of the season. Despite the loss of Miller the local team's big Improvement has raised the hopes of Afgonfans for a win over the tough and dangerous Webster City team in the game to be played on the latter's field this Friday. Webster Is not big but very fast and well -coached with an Impressive record so far this season. The Bulldogs will have to Improve some more to beat their next Friday's foes, but they needed improvement over their previous week's showing to beat Spencer and the difference Was forthcoming. The Spencer score might have been more decisive. The invaders had Just one real (coring opportunity and they capitalised on It Long's fumble on the second play of the game gave Spencer the ball on the Bulldog 20 yard line and Spencer scored (n five plays. Snyder car* rled the ball over but fumbled and Mingleson recovered. After that Algona took command of the ball game. i Algona Counter Attack An Immediate Algona counter attack carried the ball from Its own territory down to Spencer's 15 yard line where it was stopped just short of a first down. Spencer's punt carried only to the 22 yard line and after two plunges by Long and Lee, Long passed to Lee for the tleing marker. Michel's kick for the extra point then caused a controversy. It was blocked but recovered by a Bulldog who stepped over the goal line. The officials refused to allow the extra point although later one of them admitted it should have been counted. In the third quarter, either Irked by Spencer or the large predatory mosquitoes which abounded at the Athletic Park, the Bulldogs opened up a vicious offensive. A break came when Clarence Devlne recovered a Spencer fumble on the Spencer 90 yard line. A pass gained one first down and LeRoy Lee, one of the standout players of the game, made a first down In two line plays. A beautifully executed spinner-lateral play, Lee to Michel to Neville then gained 17 yards to the Spen- Ifimra Upper jie* Jffltoimg Established 1865 ALGONA, IOWA.

After gaining a first down on its own 30 yard line, Spencer was penalized 15 yards for unnecessary roughness. With approximately 10 seconds remaining to play. Spencer attempted a short pass which LeRoy Lee intercepted and then sprinted 20 yards to score. A pass off a fake kick from placement gave Algona the extra point, making the score 20 to 0. The play was Neville to Michel to Lee. The work of the whole Algona team was pleasing. Miller turned In some sparkling work before he was huit, and Spear, his replacement and Baas the other end, played alert, defensive games. Wesley Schultz, candidate for all conference tackle honors, caused the crowd to gasp at times at his jarring tackles, and Ehrhardt. the other "tackle, played a game that Indicated he may be /eady for 60 minutes of anyone's football.

Several applications for the position were understood to have been received, or were being rumored.

An unexpected case climaxed the closing of court, however, as Rex Rider, now In Jail for making and uttering a false check began a writ of habeus corpus proceedings against Casey Loaf BH sheriff of Kossuth county. Rider is charged with giving Guy B. Risk, Langdon, a bad check, for the amount of $198 and was bound over to the next term of district court It is charged that Rider has been buying horses both In Minnesota and Iowa and paying for them with bad checks.

FIRE PREVENTION WEEK OBSERVED OCTOBER 9-15TH Local Officials, Firms Ask Cleanup, Checkup by All Business Firms and Home Residents Fire Prevention Week—October 9 to 15th—is being observed In Algona and throughout Kossuth coun. ty, this week. Fire each year, costs this nation 10,000 lives, and a property damage amounting to hundreds of millions of dollars. FIRE INSPECTION PLANNED Algona city firemen stated today that there would be a citywide flre prevention checkup some time In the very near future. The city department now has the best equipment In Its history but even with It, the time to prevent fires Is before they start Exact nature of the checkup will be discussed Thursday at the city council meet- Ing. As insurance men point out, the majority of fires are absolutely unnecessary, and could be prevented or controlled by ordinary precautions. Give 5 Important Tips A few of the tips given in connection with flre prevention, follow: 1. Smoking materials carelensly used are among the most frequent causes of flre. Be careful where you deposit marches or cigarette mid cigar butts. Keep matches out of the reach of small children. 2. Take no chances by leaving children alone In the house. They might be trapped, should a flre occur. 3. Oily rags and waste should bo kept In closed metal waste cans. Spontaneous Ignition of oily rags has cuused many a fire. 4. Prepare for flre by using flroi.. nt ,, _,,. resistant materials wherever pos- K at Mason City. sfVle. Eliminate the hazard of| •parks by having the right chimney i construction. ~ , - « 0. Watch stoves, repla'ces, electric irons and ail other possible fire causes. Be sure your electrical connections arc correct.
