Payment Plans Raise the Ante PECULIARITIES OF VOTING METHODS PROVE PUZZLING Constable Race Tops Oth «rs in 3rd Ward; Gillette Leads Demos Where There Were Contests Judges at the county election of Tuesday of last week reported many peculiarities of voting, some of which are indeed unusual. In the Algona second ward the chief interest seemed to He in the election of constable, where more votes were cast for Ernst Thiel than anybody else on the ticket Leon Merrltt, republican candidate for coroner, ted the republican ticket in the county, coming within less than 200 votes of victory. Heavy blackness of the pencil marks on some of the "straight' tickets gave the judges a laugh. It was evident that In such casen the feelings in regard To the vote was very definite. There was an unsual amount of ballot scratching, not nearly as many votes being for the entire tickets, as waa the case two and four years ago. In Prairie township some 125 ballots were straight democratic, however, judges reported. Casey Loss, unopposed for sheriff, led the Kosstith vote, with U. S. Senator Gillette polling the next largest democratic vote. EL S. Kln- ««T led the county ticket in the races tctatrt there were contests. Number of Visitors In Swea-Eagle Twp.

In addition It Is expected about 3,000,000 bushels of 1838 corn will be sealed at the 57 cent rate bringing, a total of $1,710,000 for sealing. The million dollars which Kossuth j farmers cooperating In the farm program will be considerably in excess of the amount received this year for cutting corn acreage—$650,000. Farmers will receive a total corn payment of between 14 and 15 cents a bushel on the normal yield of each acre In their allotment as compared with the 10 cents a bushel payment this year. This includes a 9-cent conservation payment and a B or 6 cent adjustment payment. The plan pays farmers to cut down their acreage of soil depleting crops such as corn and* growing Instead soil conserving crops such as alfalfa and soy beans. Farm experts point oat that In 1939 the crop control law will be given Its first fair test since it was adopted too late to affect all 1938 planting. As a result of a change In crop classification a considerable Increase In the amount of oats, barley and rye grown In the county is expected. The reason is that this year those crops will not be classed as soil depleting if they are used as a nurse crop for legumes or perennial grasses and provided the grain Livermore Is Champion Town for Producing Uncle Sam's Sailors Livermore: Maybe it's true that "there's something about a sailor." At any rate, Livermore for an inland town, is doing more than its share to supply Uncle Sam's navy with Bailors. Just to cite a few examples. Ray McKenna, son of Mr. arid Mrs. Edward McKenna, graduated In 1930 from high school. He received an appolntement to Norfolk, Va., and wound up In the Hawaiian Islands. Clare Roepke, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Roepke, and Mark Anderson, son of Mr. and Mrs. 4ess Anderson, finished high school training In 1634. Ro*p- ke joined the fleet on the west coast, out of San Pedro, Calif., and Anderson Is now enjoying the breezes in Cuban waters. In the 17935 class, John Fox, James Sykes and Shirley Beardsley, entered the navy and are serving at the present time. Fox is with the west coast fleet, Sykes is at the same place, and Beardsley Is In a naval weather broadcasting station near New York. Then 1936 contributed La- Vaughan Rlley and- Dave Shields. Both are getting their \ mall at San Pedro. Gerald Laursen, son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Laursen, is a 1937 graduate, received a Norfolk appointment arid later an Annapolis appointment, and is at present awaiting further orders. Lowell Schultz is located at Bremerton, Washington, and in the navy. And now, three more Livermore boys are awaiting call, having'passed the required examinations.

Another trend predicted is a 20 to 25 per cent increase In the num- jer of sows bred for spring farrow Because of the favorable ratio be- ween corn and hog prices. With corn low and hogs commanding a 'airly good price many farmers are expected to convert their corn Into pork. Payments and quotas have been announced for other crops also but do not affect Kossuth so much since corn is by far the major crop of the county. According to AAA estimations there were only 300 acres of wheat grown in Kossuth during 1938. About 220,000 acres were planted in corn. Sugar beet acreage totaled 3,000 acres mostly In the northern end of the county, 25,000 acres were used for growing soy beans, 200 acres-for commercial potatoes and about 200,000 acres were used in growing small grains. The 1938 corn crop has been much larger than In 1938 because of the more favorable weather but acreage allotments for 1939 are expected to remain about the same.

Geology Specimens Donated to School A collection of unusual rocks and ore was added .to the geology department of the Algona public high school last week. The collection, made by C. B.
