TOWNSHIP AAA MEN HEAR MORE ABOUT '39 PLANS Meet in Algona Tuesday Night; Predict Half Million Bushels Under Seal Here This Fall Sales of 53,000 bushels of corn to farmers for feed was announced by AAA officials last week. Twenty- five carloads or 40,000 bushels more corn have been shipped to Minneapolis for storage. While this means a considerable quantity of 1937 corn has left the farm cribs it is only a portion compared to the amount which will be resealed according to present indications. Applications have been received at the AAA office for loans covering approximately 360,000 bushels of corn. The prediction is that 500,000 bushels of 1937 corn will be resealed In farm crlbs-at the 67 cent rate. So far there has been itf Jttwsvolnme Governor Kraschel To Spsak Thursday took charge of. the ball and immediately put on a touchdown. drive. Lee, Long and Michel took turns carrying the ball with Michel turning in a nice run that put the ball deep In Hampton territory. Hampton braced momentarily but then Lee drove through his own right tackle for the first touchdown. Michel kicked the extra point. -. Algona controlled the ball during most of the first quarter, but did not score again until the start of the second period when another sustained drive took Algona down-deep into Hampton territory. Hampton 'made another brief stand before Junior Long, showing the most drive he has displayed •this season, cut Inside his own right tackle for a 20 yard Jaunt to a touchdown. Lee added the extra point Oh a plunged over right guard. Lee Injured During the third quarter Algona's attack slowed down when Lee went out after being injured while diving for a fumbled ball. The Bulldogs picked up occasional first downs but coudln't put them together to put on a scoring march. Lee came back into the game in the fourth quarter and Algona's attack began clicking again. On a spinner play, Lee to Long, the Bulldog full back galloped to the Hampton 19 yard line, a jaunt of about 20 yards. Lee plunged for four yards through R. A. BRAVENDER,, >, SWEA CITY; ILL SHORT TIME, Funeral Held Monday for IClothing Man, 49, Victim of Heart Attack last Friday Evening R. A. Bravender, prominent Swea City clothing merchant, died suddenly at his home last Friday evening, about 11 o'clock. He had not been in good health for about two weeks, although his illness had not been considered serious. Mr. Bravender was 49 years of age. He Is survived by his widow, a son, Roy, n daughter, Mrs. Frank Clifford of Spencer, two brothers, Lester- and Harold, a sister, Mrs. Lawrence Butterfleld, and his mother, all residents of Los Angeles, California. Son About to Marry The son, Roy, was to have been married Sunday to Miss Juanit.a Brown of Esthervllle, and at the time of receiving word of his father's sudden heart attack, was rehearsing for the wedding ceremony with the prospective bride. The young man's father had passed away by the time he got back to Swea City. Mr. Bravender had been engaged in the clothing business at Armstrong for eight years.

Heidecker was to compete today (Tuesday) In the district championship event at Iowa Falls for the right to enter the state meet in Rlngsted. Not only Heidecker, but the next four men In the Kob- suth event bettered Balko's record. Henry Heidecker, Lakota, the fifth place winner, husked 2,113 pounds of corn almost 200 pounds better than Balko's record of 1,860. County Agent A. L. Brown explained however, that the great margin \vns probably due to differences in the size of the ears of corn and weather. Since the Iowa corn was likely much bigger than the Minnesota variety Heidecker could throw ears slower than. Balco and still get a heavier load of corn in the same length of time. Kossuth county's champion was to compete at Iowa Falls Tuesday, instead of at Storm Lake Monday as previously announced because officials of the state-wide meets wished to have even competition at the district r.«eets and the Iowa Falls affair did not have as "many entries as some of the other district events.

However, lest anyone grow excited or the State Board of Underwriters cancel all fire insurance on Algona property, It should be added that the firemen will then be immediately reappolnted by the council. Members of the fire department asked that It bo emphasized that the city will be at no time without a flre department The action will simply be a formality In connection with the reorganization of the firo department which Is expected to take place possibly at the council meeting this Thursday evening. For some time the matter of reorganizing the fire department along more efficient lines has been considered by the council and this thought was crystallized at the last meeting of the body when a resolution was presented by the secretary of the Chamber of Commerce asking that action, be taken ' that would forestall the reported raising of fire Insurance rates. City Attorney Bonar said as yet he had no ordinance drawn up but that he Intended to wait until the council had agreed on the general provisions of the act.

The passing of Hamili was almost the only offensive threat Hampton had. Hamilton, In addition, must have maot«f Jjllly half of the tackles also for the Invaders. AH of Findley's replacements showed to good advantage although the Hampton line was not strong enough to provide much of a test. The Bulldog backfleld with the three gunners Long, Lee and Michel, doing most of the damage, were running hard all evening and blocking Lewis Neville at quarterback, replacing Bruce Miller, fitted in satisfactorily and did some steller defensive work during the game. Algona will need to be at Its best this week for Clarion. The Cowboys have lost only one game, and that the Iowa Falls' Cadet.-j, the powerhouse of the conference. Clarion dfeeated Clear Lake 13 to 7, Webster City 12 to 7 and Hampton 26 to 7. Swanger, a triple threat halfback, is the spearhead of the Cowboys' offense and his long runs and passes have provided a potent scoring threat all season.

In practice the change would be merely technical, but a different set-up is necessary in order that periodical property inspections can be made. The council will likely make some provision authorizing: and paying for such Inspections. Since at present the firemen are strictly volunteers they do not have time to make such Inspections, a. service which the Chamber of Commerce Is specifically seeking.

Of the remaining cases pending, three were companion cases to others already prosecuted against the same parties under other charges, and the fourth is against the well- remembered Ralph Carroll which involved the taking of a "pot shot" at Dr. R. A. Evans, coroner, while he was atempting to serve papers on Carroll. The mere fact of returning an indictment in this case caused a voluntary removal into Minnesota almost over night and accomplished a feat which about two and a half years of lawing in the civil courts, involving numerous hearings, an appeal to the Iowa Supreme Court and several hundreds of dollars in expense, failed to accomplish. From Life to Small Fine To the 70 defendants convicted penalties were meted out ranging from life in Fort Madison to 90 days in the county jail or fines of $300.00. Twenty-seven of the 70 cases involved operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, and carry a minimum of 90 days in the county jail or a fine of $300.00, although in some of these cases a part of the penalty has been suspended under certain conditions.

Only two cases were tried, both traffic violations. George Sengbusch, a truck driver was fined $1 and assessed $2 costs on a charge of failing to have a tail light on his truck.

A small steel bottle is placed just ahead of .he customer's hot water tank. The bottle contains zeolite, a mineral that extracts the hardness from tho water, and ia capable of being regenerated once it has spent its capacity. The water department merely exchanges the steel bottle once a month (for the average customer), or oftener if a greater volume of water is used. Charges ure $1 per month where one exchange will take care of the softening, and only $1.50 per month where two exchanges are required.
