HISTORICAL DEFT, NO PUBUC WORKS NAMED BY COUNCIL Oil Contract, Dog Licenses, Street Decoration Dis , cussed at Monthly Meeting of City Dads Suggested provisions for a new ordinance governing the flre department were presented by councilman, Frank Kohlhaas, Thursday evening in the regular monthly meeting of the city council. The post of superintendent of public works Is still vacant as applications continue to pour in for the position. Discussion of tHe matter in the council meeting, however, hinted that a new' superintendent would be appointed soon. Preventing interference with the firemen while they are on their way to a flre or fighting one is the purpose of Councilman Kohlhaas' suggested ordinance. In big cities flre equipment Is immediately given the right of way by all traffic but In Algona half the' population turns fire bug at the sound of the siren and often in rushing to the scene of the flre hamper greatly the efforts of the firemen. The ordinance proposed by Kohlhaas would give the cars of firemen rushing to; the station or scene of •the flre the right of way over ether cars: Cars driving by the Scene of A fire would be specifically prohibited fr,om drivlAg over hose unless ordered to do so by the fire chief. Motor vehicles are not to trail fire fighting equipment closer than 900 feet nor park within a specified distance of the flre. Mr. 'Koolhaas stated at the council meeting that the sick fund of the volunteer fire department had been divided up among the members of the department, preparatory to the company's being taken over by the city government It was suggested that the age limit for firemen be set at 65 except for an electrician and water man. The fire chief, under the new set up, would be appointed by the city council and members of the fire department appointed by the chief wjth the approval of the council. The question of on what basts the chief should be paid was not settled at the meeting. No decision has been made on a superintendent of public works but it was revealed at the meeting ffiat applicants for the post had been sifted over until only four or five were left The applications of a number of others were read at the meeting and considered. However, It Is likely that the original four or five will be considered most seriously for the job, A number of the councilman expect to make trips to the cities of the applicants and investigate them and after that is done the new superintendent will be named.

The concesus of opinion seemed to be that measures should be taken to collect the tax. A tentative contract for a new supply of oil for the diesel engines of the electrical plant was signed by the mayor at the meeting, the company being the Carter-Waters corporation. Decorating the city streets for Christmas was the subject of considerate discussion but nothing definite was decided. The Chamber ol Commerce had not yet made IU request for street decoration and so the matter will hang flre until some word Is given from the merchants' organization.

Money Taken from Safe; Clues Missing; Crash of Window Jars Peace of Sunday Night Theft of about $100 from the Lensing grocery was reported to county and city authorities, Monday morning. Mr. Lensing told officers he had placed the money In the store safe, Sunday morning, when he went down to his place of business. Mon day morning the money was gone. The safe had not been locked. No traces of a possible entrance Into the store were found by officers investigating the case, although it was said that a coal chute in the rear might have been the means of getting into the building. The city "rest room" for transients seeking a place to sleep i* directly under the Lensing building. A check was made of a transient, Monday by Sheriff Casey Loss, who had the man picked up near Fairmont, Minn., but as the fellow had only a couple of dollars on his person, he is not believed to have had 'anything to do with the robbery, and was ordered released, Mr. Lensing himself did not close up the store, Saturday night, as he was not feeling well and went home earlier than usual. Clerks placed the money in a spot where Mr. Lensing found it, Sunday morning. He then transferred it to the safe. However, as he only recently purchased the safe, and was not familiar with the combination, he did not lock the safe. But Monday morning the safe was locked, and he had to call on the former owner of the same to open It, City Marshal Van Alstyne said. Lensing then found the money was gone. Although there seem to be no clues to work on, city and county officials were cooperating on all angles of the case. .

Knot Well the Larsons almost had it! However, Vic Stell spoiled things by taking first place In last Saturday's gridiron guessers' contest He missed only one game, the tie between Iowa and Purdue — and so did just about everybody else. Vic had only 51 error points. Second place went to A. V. Larson, also of Algona. A. V.'s son, Russell, won the contest last week. A. V. missed only the Iowa tie, but had 53 error points. Leon Larson, Lone Rock, took third place. He had 84 error points, but missed only the Iowa tie with Purdue.

Hundreds of Kossuth People at Ringsted Husking Battle With a crowd variously estimated as between 29,000 and 30,000 on hand, the 1938 Iowa corn husking champion was determined at Ringsted, last Thursday. He Is Henry Peterson, aged 40, from Callender, Webster county. Kossuth county sent'a large delegation to the event from all sections, and the Algoim Chamber of Commerce was one of several such units Uiat assisted in plans before and during the event. Peterson's net was 2042.88 pounds of corn husked during the one hour and 20 minutes allowed. Bob Keller, Iowa boy, who In a pitching star with the Cleveland Indians, was present, and added considerable color to the event. He was introduced to the crowd and got a big hand. Ten airplanes were on hand, some belonging to newspapers, and otn- ers to g\ve sightseeing rides. Corn wasn't the only thing Activity Calm Until This Week; Kossuth May Be (Pivot County in State Ballot Again Kossuth county will go to the polls next Tuesday, November 8th, and cast Its ballot for county, and state officers, and for a representative In congress and a United States senator. Thus far, althougn both republican and democratic county organizations have been waging a hard drive among party workers to get out a good vote, the general public; has seemed more or less indifferent, if street corner discussions and gatherings are any indication, of interest. Both county groups, however, are hoping that during the final week public Interact will increase, and a good vote will be the result. In today's Algona Upper Des Moines, a sample of the ballot which voters will get next Tuesday at tho polls is reprinted officially. Only the township officers are omitted from this sample ballot. Democratic county headquarters, in the old postoffice building, have been busy distributing literature and county leaders have held a number of meetings throughout the area, and also one large countywide mass meeting last week, at which Gov. Nelson G\ Kraschel spoke. ReJ Jtks ed— 15 reported having had their pockets picked. Titonka Bounced From First Place For the first time since the beginning of the bowling season, Titonka was not in first place in the standings at the end of the week, the erstwhile leaders bowing to Wesley two games out of three, putting the Idle Farmers live into the lead. Wesley bowled twice during the r for r then substitut- Court Houso Rats, who ly busy, and in Uiat party'the younger workers, especially, have be«n diligently carrying on a county-wide drive, while a newly organized woman's auxiliary has held several meetings. As a final wlndup, the young republicans will uold a dance at tho Ponton pavilion, Friday evening, Nov. 4th. Only admission requirement is a membership In the club, which Is 25 cents. The Rhythm club orchestra of Algona will furnish the music. Two years ago, the vote from Kossuth county gave Kroachel it majority of something like 2.500 and was Instrumental In swinging the state vote for the democratic candidates. Much speculation is going the rounds an to whether or not the same majorities will be tabulated next week. Special Interest in the county seems to center on tne supervisor races, although other county candidates have by no means been taking things easy. Regardless of your party affiliations, it Is the duty of every adult man and woman to speak his mind regarding his public officials, ariff the ballot box is the place to do so. Do your bit—vote Tuesday November 8th.
