ALGONA MAN WAS ON SQUAD WITH NEW IOWA COACH Wally MacDougall Says , Eddie Anderson as 17 , Yr. Old Star, Kept in Perfect Condition While Iowa is welcoming IJr. Edward Anderson as the new state university coach, his selection Is of special interest also to northern Iowa since it was at Mason City that he played high school football. Wally MacDougall, who played football at Mason City just after Anderson was through, recalls that the new Iowa coach was a city hero at that time because of his playing and also some of the special characteristics which made him an outstanding coach. MacDougall was a freshman when Anderson was a senior. Starring at the same time on the team were Anderson and Les Belding, both of whom received an all American ranking in College, Anderson at Notre Dame and Belding at the State University. Belding is now coaching at South Dakota Wesleyan. Belding was a star at one end for Iowa and Anderson at the other end for Notre Dame, when the Hawkeyes defeated the Irish in one memorable battle. Present day fans may get some idea of the strength of those Mason City teams from the fact that they beat Harrison Tech of Chicago, 122 to 0. While Anderson was at Mason City high school he trained as probably few high school players do. He was in condition all the time during football season and the rest of the year, too. In fact, during the summer when most boys either loaf or get regular summer jobs Anderson would get the toughest jobs he could find, working on the section for the railroad or working for a packing company. Yet he did not neglect his studies and after graduating from college kept on to get his degree in medicine. It Is reported that one of his reasons for accepting the Iowa post was that he wanted to do some work under one of the famous doctors at the University of Iowa.

" ' gfltaona r ©eg Jfflome* Established 1865 ALGONA, IOWA, TUESDAY, DECEMBER (5. ]JM8 Section Two. VOL. 35.—NO. 49 New Algona Municipal Plant Superintendent Takes Over Work C. U. POLLARD , TAKES UP DUTIES Nebraska Man Replaces The Late Joseph Kelly; Family to Move Here Although he was originally not expected ( to take over his new duties Until December 15, C. U. Pollard, recently appointed superintendent of public works, began work Wednesday of last week and hoped to have his family here and settled in their new home over the week end. A record of municipal utility service is a point highly in Mr. Pollard's favor as he takes over his work in Algona, known as a municipally- minded city. While at Tecumseh, Nebraska, where he was formerly superintendent of public works, Mr. Pollard was president of the Nebraska League of Municipal Utilities which is an organization of light plant superintendents partlc- uarly concerned with the maintenance of publicly owned plants as against the high lines. He was superintendent at Tecumseh for about seven and a half years. Also in his experience are a number of years with a large steam plant in Topeka, Kansas. Started at Age of 17 Prior to that time he had for ten years been employed in the municipal plant at his original home, Fall City, Nebraska; He began work there when 17 years of age. His recommendations from Tecumseh are excellent. He was desirous of obtaining the Algona position, however, as it is an advancement for him and he is enthusiastic about North Iowa. "After living in another section of the country you can fully appreciate Iowa," he said. "Nebraska is called the white spot of the nation, but conditions there are nowhere near as good as around Algona. To me this is the garden spot of the nation." The Algona plant is in excellent condition, he said. Its rates are among the lowest but the plant is In sound condition.* Would Maintain Reserve Mr. Pollard states that he believes it is undesirable to make ratea too low since it is often the case that in trying to keep rates too low no adequate reserve can be kept to maintain the plant properly. Mr. Pollard .said, however, that he would prefer not to make any particular statement of policy at this time, but let his work answer for him. " Xmas Seal Sale Campaign In Kossuth Is Uhderway Sale of Christmas seals, an annual event In the fight againat tub- culoais, began last week In Kossuth county with envelopes of seals being mailed out to persons all over Kossuth. Committees in each town and township mailed out to residents of their communities envelopes each containing two dollars worth of the Christmas seals. The recipients are asked to keep the seals or as many as they can use and mail the money for them back to the committee. Also boxes will be placed in centrally located spots so that persons, can if they wish, simply drop their contribution into the boxes. All money received is used for fighting tuberculosis. It was pointed out that the Kossuth association is already sponsoring work for the examination of persons who have had contact with tuberculosis, In cooperation with the county medical society, State Department of Health, and Iowa Tuberculosis Association. Tuberculin skin tests were given by the family physicians to 209 persons. A total of 84 reactors were x-rayed. Nine cases of tuberculosis were reported, including two minimal, four moderately advanced and three far advanced. The findings also included a number of .cases which may in time develop into active tuberculosis. These cases need to be periodically rechecked, to detect the disease at its first onset.

Why shouldn't I come right out with it? If people want to switch they will. Using Conoco Bronz-z-z they don't want to, and why should they ? Just suppose it is 20 degrees colder today and they,bought their Special Winter Blend Conoco Bronz-z-z yesterday. Just the same, they can start right up, and they won't lose out on mileage, either—because their Conoco Bronz-z-z is refinery-adjusted according to all the weather records ever made here at this exact time of year. Probably most of my customers don't even think of that, because they just know they can start. That's all —they start. That's what everybody wants—quick-starting—and so that's what I've got here .. . quick-starting Conoco Bronz-z-z.
