This IS a big M»ct*ase over the total of under 4,00) arrived at | n the last census In 1930, and several hundred more than the postal census of three years ago. The statistics compiled by the local post office may be considered as very accurate and conservative. The total does not include a great many people Who get mail by general delivery and in a considerable percentage of families it is known that not all of the children were listed. In the city and on the two rural routes is & total of 6,688 persons served by the local office. There is one big shock in store for Algon- lans. In numbers at least the Smiths, nb longer lead all the rest The Johnsons have that honor with 26 families listed in the city directory and si* In the country, with a total of 104 people altogether bearing the honorable name. There are nearly lo Smith families in town and four in the country adjacent. They must give precedence to even such clans as the Alberts. The many dlfferenFTamilles bearing the Same names may be Interesting to Algona citizens but they are a headache to the postal em- ployees. If pepple would have their letters addressed with their street addresses in Algona it would help matters a lot, the local postal workers say. Also, if people are commonly known by nicknames the nickname should be on file at the office to make Sure there is no delay in getting mail to them. There are 23 different companies in the city all with the firm name starting with Algona ana that complicates matters, too. Then some people want their mall delivered on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays to their post office box and other days to their homes. But the most difficult are a few persons with an office down town for delivery of RALLY IN FINAL QUARTER GIVES BULLDOGS AHE Suprise Eagle Grove, 12 12; Humboldt Closes th< Season For Algona Here This Friday 2 P.M. A surging drive that couldn't be stopped characterized the play o the Algona Bulldogs as they tied Eagle Grove 12 to 12 in the rain on Thursday night. Only a complete victory could have been sweeter to the good crowd which turned out despite weather conditions and which left only after the Uproarious fourth quarter, sure that Algona will tame the Humboldt Wildcats In the last and big game of the season Friday imfternoon at the Athletic park. Humboldt was beaten 6 to 0 by Kagle Grove but on the other hand tile Wildcats tied Webster City and dumped Clarion 16 to 0. Iowa Falls had its toughest battle at Humboldt winning only 6 to 0 Eagle Grove came to Algona the second ranking team of the conference and while the Eaglets will likely hold their ranking not even the visiting fans could rightfully claim that their squad was actually the second best in the conference for the superiority of the Bulldog eleven was apparent even while it was trailing in the third quarter by two touchdowns. Van Deelan A Star The Eaglet's heralded Van Deelan was everything advance reports said he was and but for his play it is likely the game wouldn't have been close. Van Deelan figured in at least half of the defensive plays and in both of Eagle Grove's touchdowns. But while Eagle Grove's battle was largely a one man affair- every man in the Algona line-up turned in a top performance. Lee and Long gained most of Algona's yardage alternating on several drives in ripping through the line. Roger Michel was not as effective as usual In bis kicking and ball carrying because of the Injury received in the Clarion contest, but his blocking cleared the way for Long and Lee. Lewis Neville surprised by turn- nlc « While the hard driving of the Algona backs drew the crowd's attention the play of the Algona line was at least on a par with that of the backs. Wesley Schultz continued to star at his left tackle past and Jess Reynolds and Dale Ehrhardt at the other tackle post were re- rponslble for opening many holes in the strong side of the line. One of the cheering features of the game was the work of Bud Morck at center, replacing the injured Captain Bud Anderson. Morck, Devlne and Conklin kept up Algona's strong play In the center of the line. On the flanks Lloyd Spear played his best game of the season and his Improvement with that of Julius Baas, other wingman, eases some of Flndley*s worries. * Eagle Grove's two scores resulted from passes. Its daring goal line pay In the opening minutes of the game gave it an ImmeDlate advantage. An Algona punt had rolled almost to the Eaglet goal line and with the game just started, a wet , ball to contend with and the shadows of their own goal line behind them, everything called for a kick. But Instead Van Deelan on a spinner-lateral play gave the ball to Bud Watklns, the Eagles' fleet little halfback, who ran straight down the sidelines before he was finally thrown out of bounds tin the 42 yard line. Another lateral and drives by Van Deelan took the ball deep Into Algona territory where a fourth down pass was ruled complete on interference to put the ball on the Algona ten yard line. Three line plays were stopped cold but another short pass on the fourth down, Van Deelan to Shaw was good for a touchdown. Algona opened up and shoved Eagle Grove all around the field but a short punt flnaly gave Eag IP Grove the ball Inside the Bulldog 89 yard line and spinner plays and laterals took the Eaglets down to the Algona 6 yard marker, where the Bulldogs stopped three successive plunges by Van Deelan before be faked a plunge and tossed the ball over the line of scrimmage to Folkedahl. 'That was Eagle Grove's last threat for the Bulldogs then took charge of the contest. Algona took the ball to the Eaglet 30 yard line just before the half ended. Bulldogs Score The third periou was scoreless but after several drives stalled on the wet field a "sneaker" puss put the ball on the Eaglet 6 yard line as the quarter ended. After the fourth quarter began three line plays gave Algona a touchdown. The home team kept right on blasting away at Eagle Grove and except for Van Deelan's almost single handed efforts would have scored earlier. As it was the invaders tried the same played late hi the quarter that scored for them before, a basketball pass after a fake plunge and Morck intercepted the pass in mldfleld, almost breaking out in the clear after the catch. Prom the invaders 40 /urd stripe Algona marched right down to thft go*J line, Long and Lee alternating In ripping off sizeable gains. Long passed to Spear for the touchdown. Time had nearly run out before Algona could get the ball again but when they did they started another drive that was cut short by the final whistle. mail, a residence for delivery of family mail and to complicate matters have, special business mail, Which is also sent to the home. Postal workers say they would like to have officers of clubs and organizations listed at the office for they find it hard to remember who is head of each society. A visitor being shown the workings of the post office would find it phenomenal the facts about Algona and post office work the employees do remember and the work is still further complicated by the fact that they must keep track of the people who move away also. Both Algona rural routes show slight increases in population ac- cording to post office directory statistics. The Route 2 directory, which is complete indicates that approximately 1,082 people live on the route which is 63.7 miles long. The average number of people per family in this territory is 4H persons. Figures for Route 1 are not complete but it Is estimated that there are 1,007 people In its territory. This will be an increase over last year but the flgures are indefinite because part of Algona formerly served by city carriers has been Included In Route 1 this year. Families are slightly larger on this route, averaging 4% persons per home. The route is smaller than Number 2 covering 55.37 miles. Some idea of the growth of Algona's population Is indicated by the number of cancellations yearly. For the most recent period October 8, 1937 to October 8, 1938, the total was 902,090 an all time high for the city. -The lowest number was in the period 1932 to 1933 when there were only 602,090 cancellations. The number of cancellations the post office makes no definite guarantee of a rise In the number of population, but it does indicate an Increase as shown by the directory. While the directory is valuable to Algona in that it (fives an accurate estimate of the growth of the city, its real purpose is only to aid the post office workers to deliver the mail. That job la complicated eft- ough in Itself as school children who were given tours through the buUd- i ing found out. The averages letter , is handled at least two dozen times . when sent even so short a distance ! as to Des Moines. An Intricate system of machines, boxes and handling is necessary to get the mall sorted and sent on its way over the proper routes and with the speed the public expects. So it Is very important that delivery Is not handicapped, when the letter has reached Its destined city, merely because citizens of the town are not properly registered at the post office. In a city such as Algona, with its lack of system In street names and num bers the problem Is additionally difficult. A complete and up to data directory at the post office is the city's best guarantee for good service. It's not easy to get up the directory either. Some people have to ba sent many notices before they will supply the necessary information. But probably the most interesting case was that of the patron, who wanted his own mail sent to his office and his family's to the home "All right", said the postal clerk, "and what Is your wife's name please?" "None of your business," said tha man. And It took a lot of explaining to convince ft all. Established 1865 ALGONA, IQWATTITESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1938 Ten Pages VOL. 35.—NO. 45 SULLUVERMIMAHFOR127350 Clear Sky Greets Voters sunshiny weather, greeted voters Tuesday morn- Ing. There Is no reason why a good vote should not be recorded except from disinterest in the outcome on the part of voters. Today is election day (Tuesday) and on the results will hinge the question of who will run the county and state governments for the next 'wo years. Not being crystal gazers, it is impossible to predict what will happen As might be expected, both sides, republicans and democrats, are predicting victories. With regard to the county vote, even many republicans publicly have stated that they felt that Kossuth would go Into the democratic column again, but there seemed to be quite an element of doubt with regard to the state office races. In the Dickinson vs. Gillette race for U. S. Senate, opinion was divided as to the outcome. Some republicans seemed confident that Algona's favorite son would take the seat away from Gillette, while others were not so certain. Dickinson was practically conceded a victory in Algona, however. Fred Gllchrlst seemed to have a victory "in the bag" in his race for Congress from this district, although his opponent H. Lloyd Eveland of Boone, is making a vigorous race despite odds on a Gilchrist victory. Nelson G. Kraschel carried the state two years ago by some 2,700 votes over George A. Wilson. He had Roosevelt to help him. It will be interesting to see what happens today. If he wins, without Roosevelt it would indicate that the democratic state party has actually gained In strength in the past two years. If he loses by a large margin, it would indicate the democratic strength has decreased. "Listening In" on Phone Lines Out with Dial System America's favorite indoor sport, Jie gentle art of "rubbering" on the rural telephone party line will be a ttle more difficult on the new dial hones installed at LuVerne, and ther towns which have had the new ype phone system installed includ- ng Bode, Bradgate, and Gllmore City.

Balko busked 22.24 bushels in the allotted 80 minutes to defeat a skilled field of competitors.

But since lifting any receiver before the complete ring combination has fteen made will stop the ringing it is expected that common courtesy will prevent people from lifting their phones off the hooks as soon as they used to. LuVerne will be directly connected to the Algona exchange now but that will not mean that the Lu- Vernfe. houMwlfe can plok ,«*UnhrtiiA ttWJ/ JUl^^U *Tl» LuVerne's 16rigr distance outlet be through the Algona office and to put through a long distance call LuVerne patrons will dial the operator in Algona. The station in LuVerne and the other towns will bo entirely automatic and the necessary equipment will need only a small building to house It. According to Mr. Timm it is more feasible to equip the smaller towns with the new dial telephones than a city such as Algona because many of the smaller exchanges are outmoded, their replacement causes little loss in the original equipment whereas the ocal switchboard is comparatively modern and its capacity has been nowhere nearly reached. With the change over to the new dial phones rural and small town patrons in one stride change from the antiquated equipment of fifty fears ago in many cases to the latesi :ype French handset. Almost al Bode customers asked for the handsets and 75 out of approximately 200 LuVerne customers. Altogether about 60 per cent of the telephone company's patrons asked for handsets rather than the conventional •>hone. All in all, the company expects service to be much more satisfactory with the new equipment than the old—once patrons learns how to its -en in for the daily gossip, Cars Crash But 5 Escape Uninjured Titonka: Fortunate were the oc- upants of the two cars which col- ided in a "head-on" collision be- ween Bancroft and Titonka, Wed- lesday.

Craven, accompanied by his on, Doyle, who was driving, Don- Jd Woods and Woodrow Peterson n a 1938 Chevrolet, were returning rom a fishing trip at Union Slough when they met a Model A Ford driven by a Mr. Leonard of Ban- roft. The Model A driver did not see he other car in time to return to his own side of the road. Both drivers made an attempt to avert \ collision, but in vain. The cars /ere badly smashed, however, no ne waa injured. KEEP CLOSE TAB ON NARCOTICS IN KOSSDTH COUNTY Drug Stores, Doctors Take Special Precautions as Bobbery Wave Sweeps Farts of State The narcotic robbery wave current in Iowa is not regarded seriously by persons concerned in Algona, interviews show. No local physicians or druggists have recently lost any narcotics. Thefts were reported In Burlington and Bloomfleld and a Polk City physician was robbed but the thief threw away the drugs when the doctor chased him. The office of Dr. J. O. Clapsaddle, Hurt, was broken Into last week, but nothing wan taken. It Is. believed the Intruder was after dope. All drugs ve locked In the doctor's vault, however. A woman had called him some time before. Dr. Clapsaddle said he would be at the office in an hour. The thief had climbed over the tranaome Into his private office, In the meantime. A. L.

E. church in Illinois is located at Shiloh, four miles north and west of Belleville. It has been in continuous service from 1806, for it was founded 12 years before the state was admitted to the union. At the time of its founding early settlers, largely of Kentucky and Virginia stock had to contend with marauding- Indians that still infested the region. •olwell Plans New $10,000 Pavilion Plans for the construction of a ales pavilion to cost around $10.000 re being drawn up for Hugh Col- r ell of Algona near the site where Anderson's new lunch room and filling station is being erected.

Kicked by Horse, Jaw Is Broken Hebron: Selmer Matheson met with quite an accident last Wednesday night while ho was doing his chores. One of his horses kicked him in the face and broke his jaw. His friends are hoping for a speedy recovery. to try to buy narcotics however. It Is usually transients who try to get narcotics which are never sold except on the specific prescription of doctors. Sometimes addicts will «ot ahold of a doctor's prescription blank and try to forge an order for narcotics. They are usually easily tpotted by t*.o druggist, however, Mr. Borchardt said. H. T. Barker, Algona druggist, described the system by which narcotics are handled. The drugs :mve to be accounted for even to a very minute quantity a nd inspectors check up on supplies of narcotics and the records involved In handing them. Druggists will not sell narcotics even on prescription if the person is a known addict. Doctors' offices and their medical kits are often the objects of )urglaries by addicts or others seeking narcotics, but doctors seldom carry such drugs in their bags according to a local physician, Dr. P. V. Janse, and the addicts rarely are able to. find narcotics in the office Council to Meet On Thursday Night The Algona city council will meet this coming Thursday evening, with several matters of prime importance likely to come up.
