The yield which brought Byson a first prize award of a brand new, 1039 Chevrolet master deluxe sedan, average 178.26 bushels per acre. John has not received the car yet, because he still haa to name the color he wants. His price whining field had been seeded to alfalfa, but Wa* plowed only Oils spring, and planted to corn on May 16tti. He used no fertiliser. In making contest entries it was necessary to have witnesses as corn samples were taken, and all entries submitted were notarized by witnesses. Entries In the contest of the DeKalb concern came from all states In corn belt: Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, Minnesota, Illinois, South Dakota and Nebraska.

Swerves to Avoid Crash, Nearly Plunges in Stream The auto of Orady Phillips of] Algona was forced Into the mill race west of highway No. 169 in west Humboldt, Friday night of last week, news dispatches from Humboldt state. The car hung with its back wheels in the race where the water is from ten to fifteen feet deep, but was prevented from fall- Ing in by the front wheels that caught on a small tree on the bank. The car was damaged, but Phillips escaped without injury. It is stated that Phillips was driving south on 169 enroute to Fort Dodge when a car said to carry Kossuth county numbers drove onto the paving.. It came from the business section of Humboldt, and reached the paving at the intersection Just south of the Beck Service Station. It was evidently traveling at a higher rate of speed than the law permits, for its driver attempted to stop it but when he set his brakes the car skidded over onto the west side of the paving In the path of the Phillips car. Phillips tried to dodge it and In d6!ng so turned his car off the paving, toward the mill race that parallels the highway at that point His car also skidded on the ice and snow and turned around twice. The last turn brought it to the edge. of the race and it would have plunged in had its front wheels not caught on a small tree on the bank. As Phillips struggled to release himself from his car the driver of the other auto is said to have turned his car north and to have informed the people at the Beck station that an "auto is in trouble back there", and speeded away. While it is believed that he drove a Kossuth county car, nothing else is known of him or his identity. The Phillips car was taken to the Newbrough garage in Dakota City where It is being repaired. PETE SCHUMACHER CALLS MOTHER IN GERMANY, XMAS Sends Voice 7,500 Miles as Unusual Present; Says 'Folks Were' 'Pretty Excited" About Call Pete Schumacher of Whlttomori- had an unusual Christmas and gave an unusual Christmas present to his mother, brother and sister In Germany. He called them by long ditance, overseas telephone, Sunday. Pete put the call In at 9 a. m.. and got his mother on the phone at 5:45 p. m. The delay was accaslon- ed by a number of calls put In ahead of his. He got New York In a minute, but had to wait his turn after that. Call Cost $19.70 The total cost for a three minute conversation was $19.70, Pete says, but was well worth it. The call had to travel a distance of some 7,500 miles. Previous to making the call ho wrote to Germany and told his mother and relatives what he planned on doing, to make sure they were all present. "My mother was pretty excited," said Pete, "but I could understand everything that was said." It has been over 12 years since he saw his folks In Germany, and then he made a trip over there to see them. Long Distance Popular Fred Tlmftt, local telephone manager, says that j.w)d use was made of the special ratal over the holiday for long distance calls. Last year, calls to California flooded the wires, but this year special arrangements for additional service facilities were made, and calls went through in rapid fire order. Painters Badly Hurt in Fall From Scaffold Here Precautionary measures by city i usual 225 revolutions per minute power plant men saved one Algona speed Morlan would have undoubted- mnn from certain death Tuesday and possibly the life of a second when Leo Mergen nnd Andy Morim, painters, fell from the scaffolding on which they were working in the light plant. Morlan, who was lucky to escape with only a broken ankle would liavc almost certainly been hilled if the new 1,000 horsepower diesel en- pine hud been running. He fell from the scaffolding upon the end bearing of the shaft which carries the big armature of the dynamo. , A heavy canvas cover over the bear- Ing Is believed to have broken his fall somewhat for although he then fell off the bearing Into the dynamo pit he received only a broken ankle and other bruises, the full extent of which were not determined. The big engine had been running part of the night and when the painters came to work, C. U. Pollard, superintendent of public works, ordered It shut off. Had the blades of the dynamo been whirling at their been torn to pieces before th» ponderous machinery could be stopped. Mcrgcn, who fell upon the guard railing around the dynamo pit seemed more seriously hurt. He suffered a broken wrist and possible Injuries to his back. Both men were tnken immediately in an ambulance to a local hospital. The two men, who work for Bert Deal, local painter, were washing the walls of the building preparatory to painting the section of the ptant rebuilt to accommodate the recently installed engine. They had set up two ladders with a plank running across. As they worked water dripped own upon the smooth concrete floor and the ladders slipped out from under the men. Mr. Deal, their employer, carries employers liability compensation so the city Is protected from loss. It is the first time In 25 years that any one of his employees have been Injured while working, Mr. Deal said.
