The tally only served to set off a Humboldt offensive, however, and early in the fourth quarter Humboldt put over a scoring drive, Fullback Looney carrying the ball through the center of the line on virtually every play and finally plunging for the One of the hit* of the fest- IvItiM of the Armistice Day football game was Anna Mae Harr, drum majorette of the Algona high school Pressed In st flashy white Coach Hop Findiey started almost an all-senior team for Algona. Captain Bud Anderson, injured during* the season and unabln to play in the contest, held the "ball on the kick-off for the second half. Sen- iars starting their, final game for Algona were ends, Dale Ehrhardt and Julius Baas; tackles, Jesse Reynolds and Wesley Schultz; guards, Clarence Devine and Bob Conklln; in the backfield were Algona's fullback, Junior Long and halfbacks, LeRoy Lee and Roger Michel. Only non-seniors in the starting lineup were Quarterback Lewis Neville and the center replacing the injured Captain Anderson, Bud Morck. John Kohlhaas, a guard, also played his final game for Algona. Humboldt started a counter offensive almost at once, but it did not become dangerous until well into the fourth quarter when the invaders, with their blasting fullback, Looney, carrying the ball on almost every play drove straight down the field for a touchdown. Chrlsten- aen, Humboldt end, bounced the ball off the upright of the goal posts for the extra point. The rest of the way a desperate Algona passing attack failed to gain and the game ended with Humboldt in possesison of the ball on its own 2f yur.l i :it and HI-IK had booted long punt down field that travelled almost 80 yards. Although Humboldt marred the Algona homecoming festivities the invaders earned their win and Algona In defeat played its best game of the year.

E. Stoeber, 67, who succumbed last Wednesday evening. Services were held at one o'clock at the home and 1:30 at the Methodist church with Rev. J. G.

Lena Marie Welsbrod was born one mile south of Fenton on Oct. 17, 1881. With the exception of a few years, her entire life was spent in this community. On February 28, 1901, In Fenton she was united in marriage to W. E. Stoeber. With the exception of four years on a farm near Hawley, Minn., the rest of her life was spent In and around Fenton. ; Five children were born to this union, all of whom survive except a son, Cecil, who died in infancy. About a year ago Mrs, Stoeber's health began to fail and in spite of the best of care and medical skill she'became gradually weaker, but bore her affliction with courage and patience. She was a loyal Methodist church member and was active in its interest, serving at one time as president of the Ladles' Aid, Sunday School teacher and officer in the missionary society. She was preceded in death by her mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. Pete Weisbrod, two brothers, Fred and Henry, and one son, Cecil. She leaves to mourn her loss her husband, three sons, Oliver, Raymond and Wilfred, and one daughter, Gladys, all of Fenton; one grandchild, Billy Stoeber; one brother, Frank of Ringsted and two sisters, Mrs. Kate Newel of Hartley .and Mrs. John Newel of Fenton, besides many other relatives.

ORDER ARREST OF FOrt Dodge, Rockwell City Men to Face Charge of 'Trespassing Four pheasant hunters were sent notices of warrants being Issued for their arrest by Justice of Peace Paul A. Danson Monday as one result of the open season on pheasants. The four are Harley Merrll, Paul Sachell and Elmer Anderson, all of Fort Dodge and Francis Merril of Rockwell City. They are., charged by Roy Mann of Portland township with trespassing on his land. Mann said he became fed up with hunters after a horse and steer and several chickens were shot by hunters. When he found the quartet of nlmrods on his land he asked them if they had received permission to hunt there, and demanded to see their hunting licenses. When they were produced Mann copied down the names and addresses of the hunters and came into justice court and swore out warrants for their arrest. Although most hunters seem to be unaware of the fact, hunting on cultivated land is expressly forbidden by an Iowa law—13,104 Code of Iowa, 1936. A charge of larceny of a motor vehicle lodged in justice court against Roy Kyhl was ordered dismissed by Danson on recommendation of the county attorney.

Charge Undue Influence The action in the deed was brought by Leslie H., J. E., and C. F. Butterworth, sons of O. E. Butterworth, against Klare T. Butter- v/orth. The former are sons by the first marriage of Mr. Butterworth. Mr. Butterworth died in Dec. 1934 at the age of 67. Mrs. Butterworth is 43, and by the will of deceased was granted certain property which the sons claim resulted from undue influence on the deceased by his second wife. They ask title to an undivided two-thirds of the property in question. O. E.

FOR POWER LINE Misunderstanding Arises As to Whether City or Pioneer Firm Is to Pay For Line to New Plant A questiqn of law concerning the servicing of power and light patrons outside the corporate limits of the city of Algona was raised at the council meeting Thursday evening when Attorney J. D. Lowe asked for an explanation of a bill presented the Hi-Bred Seed Corn Company for line work outside Algona. Mr. Lowe was a member of the civic committee which negotiated with the seed corn firm concerning the establishment of its plant in Algona. The matter actually hinges upon the opinion of the late Joe Kelly, then superintendent of public works. In the spring the committee negotiated with the Pioneer company to have it build the plant here; the city of Algona was questioned about the availability of power to the plant. It is the council's understanding that Mr. Kelly understood the problem to be only whether or not the city would go outside the city limits to supply power. This he advised the council it was possible to do by the same plan by which power was supplied to the Rendering Works—the city would build a line to the city limits at its own expense and the cost of the work the rest of the way would be paid by the company. The cost of building the line to the city limits would be approximately $3,000 the council was told and the mem- beis decided that this would be a prcper and fair inducement to the company to locate here. Mr. Lowe, as a member of the committee handling the matter, states positively that what they sought as an offer was servicing of the plant with electricity which meant that the city would build a line to the plant, and that-Mr Kelly told them It would be possible to do so. Tho cost of getting the power beyond the city limits to the plant is approximately $1,024. As the matter stands the Pioneer Hi-Bred Seed Corn people have signed a contract asking for the power service, and other with the Cresco-Unlon Power Co., - binding them to do the additional work done outside the city limits. The Plon- *er company contends was toW that.t^y&tmet ***• -' •" • Firemen's Feathers To Fly at Fenton Fentou: The Fenton firemen will sponsor a feather party at the gymnasium on Wednesday, Nov. 23.

Algona Boys Star In College Victory Three Algona boys, were prominent in a victory last Friday of Dakota Wesleyan college at Mitchell, 8. D., over Yankton college, 13 to 12. It was the first victory over Yankton, since 1927 reports Dr. J. H. Edge,- president of the college and former Methodist pastor in Algona. Banwart as left guard, Vinson in the line, and Orville Hanegan in the backfield, were the Algona trio. Hanegan, a reserve fullback, kicked two successful droplocks and a place-kick, accounting for seven points for his team.

Hunter Breaks Neck In Automobile Crash Eaton. Doming, Hollandsworth Top Grid Guessers Contest ^ „„ that Mr. Kelly must-have intend ed that work done outside the city should be at the expense of the company'for he himself made out the bill to be sent to the Pioneer concern for the work beyond the city limits. In brief, the committee represented by Mr. Lowe, claims that It understood from Mr. Kelly and the council that the city would itself hook up with the plant to supply it with electricity. The council members state that it was their understanding that tha question was whether the city could supply the plant with electricity, which It was decided it could, and that as an inducement to the plant to locate here the city would build a line to the city limits at a cost of arov.nd $3,000 and ;vom there the company would hook on to the city power with the cost of doing so, estimated at around $1,024 to be paid by the company. Other than the power question few matters came up at the council meeting, which lasted only a short time. The council moved to consider the proposal by service clubs that the contemplated community building be erected and dedicated to the memory of the lute Joseph W. Kelly. The Algona Rotary club made a definite proposal and a Khvanis club resolution expressing its approval of the general proposal was introduced. More applications for the post of superintendent of public works have been received but the position ii still open. Sentiment was expressed at the meeting that it might not be filled for another month. City Attorney Jesse Bonar is drafting an ordinance to revise the city's fire department and it probably will be presented at the next meeting. No word was forthcoming on the city's suggested compromise in the checkers' bill and the fate of the possible reduction is in the air since the incumbent state auditor, Storms, was defeated in the recent election. He does not go out of office before the first of the year, however, from the Baptist church, the Rev Conservation Movie At Call Two Days "Iowa Comes of Age," a film three reels long, sponsored by the state conservation commission, is coming to the Call Theatre this week, for two days, Tuesday and Wednesday. The film is unusual, in that it provides a historical account of the development of Iowa, from the time of Julian Dubuque's arrival until the present preeminent position of the state as a part of the nation. Graphically presented, the fllm takes one into the many interesting localities of the state, brings to one a vivid understanding o? the state's growth, and also the need for thinking in terms of conserving of the wonderful natural resources of the state. Chauffeur's Licenses Beginning November 15, applica tions for renewal of chauffeur's license for the coming year will be accepted. Any chauffeur desiring to renew his 1938 license to a 1939 license should appear before the driver's license examiners before December 31, and should have his license with him. The examiners will be at the court house in Algona every Monday. By N. O. Knot Sitting high, wide and handsome, all by himself in first place without anyone near him, is Bill Eaton of Algona, in first place In last Saturday's Gridiron Guessers club. Bill lost half-poipts each on the two tie games; he picked Northwestern to beat Michigan, 7 to 6, and Iowa State to beat Kansas State 12 to 7. Other than that he nad clear sailing. But second and third place was a merry scramble, with 11 guessers all having the same number of misses, which made it necessary to bring the error point tabulation into play. After the fireworks cleared away, we found that second place had gone to Arnold Doming of Mallard, MRS. DITSWORTH, SWEA CITY, DIES Funeral Services Conducted Thursday Afternoon at Baptist Church Swea City: Mazle Ella Kllntz was born on March 28, 1884, In Berrcn- aan township of Jo Davless county, 111. She passed away on the 7th day of November at the Clinic hospital at Fairmont, Minn., at the ige of 54 years. She was the daugh- :er of Mr. and Mrs. Noah Klintz. On Feb. 9,. 1904 she was united in' marriage to Charles Randolph Dlts- worth of Lor an, III.' In March, 1919, they moved to tho farm one mile south of Swea City, where they have since lived. To this union were born two children, a son, Harold Lawrence, and a daughter, Vernette Eva, now Mrs. Harold Hesvlg. Mrs. Dltsworth became a member of the Baptist church of Swea City on July 26, 1925, and has since been an active member. Funeral services were' conducted Thursday afternoon Harry Ditsworth Injured on Job Wrecking Building Harry Ditsworth of Algona escaped serious injuries Thursday afttr- noon while helping to wreck the old ice house north of Algonu along the Des Moines river. The old building is one of Algona's landwarks and is nearly 50 years old. Tho north wall along the river bank was the last to be torn down and while workmen were prying It loose with a plank it began to break from the foundation and the plank jerked up and hit Dltsworth under the chin. It sent him rolling down the river bank and as he fell he grabbed hold of a grape vine which saved him from falling Into the water. He was unconscious when picked up. Three stitches were required to close the gash. Iowa, who had only 62 error points. In third place, with 64 error po'nts was H. W. Hollandswort of Algona. Others In this same classification as to actual game misses, but with more error points, were the following in the order named: Beany Genrich, Lone Rock; Jesse Reynolds, Russell Larson, Father Ahmann, George M. Smith, M. J. Streit (who picked the actual score of the Iowa-Indiana game) all of Algona, and H. A. Blanchard of Lone Rock. Wo might add that the College of the Pacific victory over Chicago spelled disaster In the matter of error points. But then, what else could Chicago do when playing against Mr. Stagg. Miss Ivan Ocean of Lone Rock, also ran. In the next group of guessers, a step behind the leaders, were Lyle Reynolds, Julian Chrlschilles, Harold Breen of Tltonka, Mrs. Herb French and her hubby of LuVerne, Erma Bcnschoter of LuVerne who won another week to gloat over her less accurate husband, Willis Cotton of Lone Rock, J. M. Blanchard of Lone Rock, Don Blanchard and Jesse Blanchard, Jr., Lcmc Rock, Bob Williams, H. B. Seeley, 'L. S. Bohnnnon and Knthryn Kelly, all of Algona. As for the remainder of the entries, they were also In on time, but as usual, some of the favorites failed to come through, and the two tie games wrecked many guesses. Well, you can't bent fun, and we have one more week to go, boys and girls, and here are the games. Now don't follow our lead; do your own picking. We just give our own guesses for fun and for the sake of a few side .bets. There are only seven games: Oklahoma (13) at Iowa State (6). Nebraska (13) at Iowa (7). Illinois (18) at Chicago (0). Indiana (0) at Purdue (14). Michigan (7) at Ohio State (3.) Minnesota (7) at Wisconsin (13) Notre Dame (6) at Northwest ern (7) — upset? In that last game, we know Notre Dame will rank a heavy favorite Dubuque Man Seriously Hurt in Collision With 'Lone Rock Car at City Intersection Delbcrt Wright, 46, of Dubuque, Iowa, here for the pheasant hunting season, suffered a broken neck in an automobile accident that happened Sunday evening at the corner of Moore and McGregor streets.
