CAGERS TO OPEN SEASON , ON FRIDAY Michel, Devine, Schultz, Long, Lee Seem Likely . To be Starting five (Against Emmetsburg Algona high school will open Its basketball season this Friday against an old enemy and one of painful memory, Emmetsburg. It was Emmetsburg which shellacked the Algona football team In Its opening game and if Findley's quint can retun the compliment oh the basketball floor there will probably be no hesitancy about doing so on the part of the local squad, all of Whom Were on the football team. It will be their only opportunity for revenge Since 1 the two schools do not play a return game. • That possibility does not concern Coach HOfl Findley, however, since Emmetsburg annually turns out classy cage teams and although little is known about its 1838 quint, it will probably rank as the favorite in Friday's fame. Emmetsburg Won in both football and basketBall from Algona test year. In preparing for the opener Flnd- ley has reduced his squad to 20 of the most promising prospects With nine of them strongly in the running for first team positions. At present it appears, that the Bulldog starting; line up will have Captain Rog Michel and Clftfence Deyftie at forwards, the big all-conference tackle from the football squad, Wesley Schultz, at center, and the grid- Iron T. N. T. twins, Junior Long audJLeRoy Lee paired ^t guards. However, It is also possible that Captain Michel may start at one guard, or one of the Nevilles. If Michel is moved to guard, Walter Hicks or Lloyd Spear may then get the call at a forward position.' Just how good a team Algona will have on the floor this year is somewhat unanswered question as ye! even to the coach. As in football there are several players with fine possibilities and the team gets by Emmqtflburg satisfactorily it might become a strong quintet The Irish are not a member of the North Central conference so Flndley wil know more about his squad before If faces ,,lts first conference foe Webster City, in the high schoo gym Wednesday of next week. At present the, Algona squad is nowhere near as strong as the 1037 38 team which won 16 out of 21 games including both the count) and sectional championship befor losing in the finals of the distric GERALD ZUMACH, LOTTS CREEK, DIES Gerald Zumach, beloved son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Zumach of the Lotts Creek neighborhood, was taken suddenly 111 last Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, and was rushed to a hospital, In Fort Dodge, where he succumbed the following day, m., a* a result of HISTORICAL DEFT.

Each ticket will bear a number, and store windows wilt have cards with numbers corresponding. After finding a gift ticket the lucky finder then looks for the card in the window Which bears the same number as the one he holds. He will receive his gift upon presentation of the card. It has been decided not to loose any live poultry as In the past the wear and tear on the fowls was too great The part Of the program which always delights the youngsters the most is the free motion picture show which will be given at the Iowa theater by N. a Rice, local theater manager. This year Mr. Alee has an especially good progflun with Popeye, Our Gang, Mickey Mouse and the Toyland Casino all to be shown. Attendance at the first show at 11 a. m., and succeeding shows at 12 noon, 1 p. m., 2 p. m., and 3 p. m. will be limited to boys and girls from outside of Algona ac- cording to present plans, and the shows at 4 aitd 5 p. m..

This year the Chamber of Commerce is putting out on roads 'over the county 1,000 red and green signs pointing in the direction of Algona and bearing the wor/is, "Algona— the Christmas City."

Prizes will be given for many different classes and Mr. Rice says that dogs from every place in the county are sure t|> win prizes. The show is not a bench show. Dogs with pedigrees may be entered but they need not have them. Some one's peoTgreed Fell* Von Whlfltenpoof will have no advantage over your dog Rover, because prizes will be given for the biggest dog, the smallest dog, the dog coming the farthest distance, and so on.

School Nurse Antoinette Bonns tetter stated that all pupils who have been immunised •will be given the "Schlck test to determine whether they are safe from diphtheria. About .75 percent of the students have been Immunized, Miss Bonn- steter estimated, bat the test will be made anyway to check up for certain. Local physicians will make the test Wednesday. Nov. 30th, for all pupils from the Academy, German parochial and public schools, who have been immunized previously. A charge of 60 cents per pupil will be made for the test. Pupils who have never been immunized •will not be required to take the Sehlck test but should be immunised at their school, the week of December 6, for which a similar charge of 50 cents will be made, Miss BonnsUtter said. A negative Sehlck test indicates complete and probably lasting protection against diphtheria. No parent can be absolutely certain that his child will not take diphtheria if exposed, unless the Sehlck test, made from three to six months after the last preventive treatment has been given, is negative.

This pamphlet professes to show a world-wide plot nmong Jewish people to gain ultimate control of t thc world. Why thi- Organization "The reason why this organization was culled into being was because this group of citizens had been studying the great questions nnd problems of the day from different textbooks than the daily papers and misleading magazines, and had* gotten at the root of the political and economic troubles of our country as well as the rest of the world", said Rev. Depping. "In their extinsive study they found that there are many subversive organizations and agencies Ire this country who are working to' overthrow the American constitutional government. "There are men and women In this"' «roup who have studied this prob-- lem for years, and know what W going on. The Defenders are a nori' partisan, patriotic organization and certainly nobody needs to be alarmed about its activities." For Free Press—Free Speech Rev. Depping continues: "Freedom of the press and free speech are inseparably bound together and are the first line of defense of our liberties. When they break, the whole line of defense crumbles—our liberties will be gone and we will be bound with the shackles of Bolshevism and become slaves." Editor's Note—Not only has Bolshevism eliminated free speech and free pretM, but the same has occurred under fascism and Nazi-ism. "Apparently the circular 'Invisible Powers' is doing good work and is waking up the people wherever it travels, and it sure has traveled. We have received comments on it from Bombay, India, and have received an order for 500 from Wakefield, England. It must be pretty good stuff if they call for it from the other side of the pond." Only Member in Kossuth Rev. Depping also stated that he is the only member of the organization in North Kossuth county, and that he hoped the Dies commit- mittee would appear for an investigation of the "Defenders of American Liberty" as nothing would suit them better and they are ready now. Kossuth county generally speaking has not seen the pamphlet. "Invisible Powers" which started all the furore. Others thai have been shown locally are tiv'.KTcd "Roosevelt and Bierman—Would Destroy Our Liberties," and "Wake Up! Wake Up! Facts to Warn You of the Conspiracies and Encroachments of Communist Forces on Your Government, Property and Liberty."
