Both Harrison's and the Hub Clothing store had smoke damage. The fire started in the back of the grocery store. A large stock of groceries had arrived that morning and somehow, one of the boxes had fallen against one of the oil heaters in the rear of the store. Flames shot up 50 feet or more half an hour after the fire was reported. About 1000 spectators lined the street. At one time seven hoses were pouring water on the flames from the front, back and from the roof of the Fareway store. The alarm was turned in at 2 p.m. and was under control by 3:30, although firemen remained on the scene until 9 p.m. A wedding cake for the Jim Lytle—Mary Amunson wedding was delivered a few minutes before the fire broke out—but a large order of baked beans to be served at the Algona Implement "Open House", were given an extra cooking by the blaze.

The game was supposed to be according to standard boys' rules, but the girls pulled a ringer at the start by barring scuffling inside the circle under each basket. The boys, however, agreed readily to no close-quarter action. This gave the girls the advantage of unopposed shots and the embarrassed boys were defeated 16-15. The colored center, Helen Smith, is seven feet tall, and the boys bothered her no more than so many ants.

Sugar is the major cause of tooth decay. Bacteria always present acts on sugar to produce acids. These acids attack, the teeth and eventually cause decay. Nibbling on sweets throughout the day is especially bad for the teeth. By constant nibbling teeth are bathed in acid. Scientists know there is some genetic influence in decay, but it is incorrect to describe teeth as hard or soft. There are areas of the teeth, especially back teeth, particularly prone to decay. These are the pits and grooves which are found on the top, or chewing surface, of the teeth. When a tooth is forming in the jawbone, it begins to calcify at several separate points. These calcifying areas finally meet and fuse, terming the hardened crown. The enamel covering is thickest on the biting surface of the tooth, is thinner in the grooves and sometimes is completely missing in the deep pits. It is in these last, less protected areas that decay is likely to occur. In some people these calcifying areas may form a hard enamel covering even in the pits and grooves, while in others the enamel may be thinner. But decay will occur if the teeth are subjected to attacks from acids Joan Becker married produced as a result of eating «^ a " ? c " er ', b 10UX ^> twl " r wp pt<; 6 sister of the bride, was the maid Irvington — Joan, daughter of the Herman Beckers, Irvington, and Gary J.
