The Webster City game was In some respects a duplicate of the Bulldogs' first game with Emmetsburg.

The Bulldogs showed improvement during the game In that phase, however, and with good ball handling and shooting ought to gain effectiveness rapidly as they get more experience. niSKV 9 * ^ P0fT 5 Michel f '3 A Schultz c o o Long g _..„ 'j !

About 40 members of the organization were present The organization took the following action on the following matters: 1—unanimously endorsed the Idea of a municipal building. 2—Discussed briefly, did hot vote on, but expressed sentiment favorable to construction of a municipal band shell. *—Heard a talk on, and discussed the possibility of a municpial air port Following the meeting the members were guests of N. C. Rice at the Call theatre. Council Members Present J. F. Overmyer, William Hawcott Frank Kohlhaas and Alwln Huenhold of the city council, .and Mayor Carl Specht were present at the meeting. Chamber members, after a discussion of possible locations, and ways of obtaining federal funds to aid in the construction, then agreed unanimously that a civic building would be a very welcome asset to the community, and thereupon turned the matter over to the council for further consideration! .With regard to the band shell, a district PWA director stated that that organization was awaiting only the final architects plans for a band-shell, before determining what federal aid for same could be given. The matter was discussed very briefly. * Air Expert Speaker William Obele, of Pierre, S. D., °»t!? t( £, of an aeron autlcal school at the Pierre airport, then outlined the possibilities of an airport for Algona, and what it might mean to the community.

Mr. Obele, a World war aviator, was of the opinion that with no great expense an air field with the best dimensions in the state cou d be established here, that would act as a feeder to east-west routes from Des Moines and the Twin Cities, and also would be a «H°^i "£ t 01 ?, Sloux JF'ty-Twta City, and St Louis-Des Molnes and Twin City lines. Extension of a line across Lake Michigan, which now ends In Wisconsin, on to Sioux Falls, a D., Is also being considered, and If the extension was made, planes would cross northern Iowa, making Algona a natural stop If the city had an adequate landing field. A Chamber of Commerce committee was being selected to work on the project, Major Leslie Saul stated Monday. Total L...O 4 8 24 Lightweight Mat Artiste Win, But Team Loses, 30-18 Algona's wrestling team staged an exciting meet with Mason City after the basketball game Friday night and even though It lost 30 to 18, provided the large crowd of spectators who remained after the basketball game, with a great deal ot entertainment. Highlights of the meet were the victories of the Bulldog team captain, Jerome Nellsen at 110 pounds and the 85 pound mite Orvllle Bakken. Nellsen won on a decision over Walter, who went to the state tournament last year. Orvllle Bakken, winner of his dlv- , islon in the ivltatlonal tournament at Eagle Grove, won handily from Andon of Mason City. On the showing of the lighter wrestlers Algona led in team scoring most of the way but the heavier Bulldog grap- that the government is encouraging good, first class fields, and that there Is a location within five miles of the Algona postofflce that would provide this community with the finest airport In the State of Iowa, bar none. "The government and transport pilots are interested in the size and condition of the field, not with the buildings that surround it, he polnt- ea out. At present two airlines from Minneapolis to Des Molnes and Minneapolis to Sioux City, cross over parts of Kossuth, and a proposed third route from the Twin Cities to St. Louis via Des Moines would also come near here. Would Require Bond Issue Construction of a municipal airport would require a bond Issue to be approved by the voters, councilmen said. At the KoMuth American Legion and Auxiliary meeting, held at Burt last Thursday evening, some 120 members present went on record as favoring »uch a project A committee consisting of «. S. McWhorter, Burt, Luther Rllller, Tltonka, and Maurice Bartholomew, Algona, wait named to represent the Legion In the matter. After discussion. led by President A. E. Krcsensky and Secretary Saul, the matter was loft In hands of the Chamber of Commerce board of directors. TRIANGLE FIGHT IN PIN LEAGUE .
