Yearoua, 36, .born and raised in Eagle Grove, is in serious trouble at Glidden, Iowa. .He was graduated from our high school with the class of 1912. His father and mother were among the first settlers in Eagle Grove. There are four other children In the Yearous family. Never before has any member of that family been Involved in any kind of trouble of any nature. The father, Aaron Yearous, was the personification .of honesty and Integrity, straight and square as the moral law. -He was made mayor of our city for a number of terms, and always bore an unimpeachable reputation. Mrs. Yearous is still a resident of this city, living in the same home for nearly 50 years. She was, and is, an ideal home maker, mother and citizen. / All the Yearous children are in useful occupations. Their reputations or characters have never been assailed In any way, shape or form, while living here, and the Eagle never heard a word in derogation since they left Eagle 'Grove. Roscoe, the oldest, is living in the west. Mllo is in Canada, a.nd has been a member of the Canadian legislature. Glenn has been superintendent of schools at Glidden for the past four years. Howard ia also teaching. Esther is married and lives at Marble Rock, Iowa, where she has served several terms as postmaster. Story of the Trouble. On September 2, 1930, Edith Cairns, Glidden, gave birth to a. baby The next\ day her mother, Mrs. '\R^ G. Cairns, and her brother, 27 years The Hancock county Farm Bureau Is split wide open over a decision at the recent annual meeting to remove headquarters from Brltt to Garner. Last week's Garner Leader, Brltt News-Tribune, and. Corwlth Hustler devoted much space to bitter argument over the change. It appears that the bounty president, one W. L. Lawhorn, resides near Garner and favored the change. The east aide of the county was organized, jit was alleged, secretly 'to send a delegation to the annual meeting largo enough to vote the change of headquarters. The original .organization was effected at Britt in H917 and appears to have been the work principally of west side business men and farmers. D. J. Miller, former Algonian, then cashier of the Commercial State bank', Britt, was instrumental in the organization, and Jas. pedley, former Algona farmer, was the first •secretary. Lawhorn is -being blamed by west Judge Heald aiders for the present rumpus, jand John Chambers, near Corwith, is principally b'amed by the east sld era. The west slders claim that the east siders put over a dirty deal. The situation recalls the bitter jealousy which has existed ever •sincp the noted fight in' the 90's which rfsuited )n location of the county seat at Garner. The Hancock county Farm Bur eau had had but one county agent Lee ^*i:1ty, who served 11 years till .last summer, when he resignec to accept appointment as state Farm Bureau^ supervisor over group of southwestern Iowa coun 'ties. 'TVHIS IS A good likeness of Geo -*• A. Heald,' of Spencer, who took office January 2. Judge Heald wil npt hold his. first term of court here Mil.next fall. 13 GUESTS IN 'HOTEL HOVEY' AT SAME TIME Fenton Man Caught With Liquor and < Flavoring. W.;, H.

FORMER ALGONIAN BROADCASTS CAME Algonians listened with interest o radio reports on New Year's day £ a' Washington state-Alabama ootball game at Pasadena, Calif. Tor two quarters Cleve C. Lantry, ormer Algonian, brother of Mrs. T. C. Sherman and of the late Harry Lantry, was at the microphone. . The Shermans, with other mem- jers of the Lantry family, were at Minneapolis and listened in. The reports were relayed over a nation- vide hook-up and came in with the utmost clearness. Mr. Lantry left Algona 23 years ago, following graduation from, the aw college of the state university at Iowa City. He went directly to Spokane, and for some time successfully practiced law. In recent years has been manager of station KHQ, Spokane, and has become cnown as the Graham McNamee of the west. Station KHQ has 'seldom or never been heard here. It comes in at a proximately the same place on the dial as WOW, Omaha, but the nearer station completely drowns it out. The Shermans have tried on numerous occasions to tune in on Spokane but have always been unsuccessful. Mr. Lantry was introduced by the radio master of ceremonies as 'Harry" Lantry, by which name he is of ten'called out west. His real name, however, is Cleveland, after President Grover Cleveland. His description of the game was clear concise, and accurate, and was thoroughly enjoyed here. TWO-PLANE HANGAR BUILT AT HAG6 POST'S AIRPORT Hagg post has completed instal lation of a two-stall Jiangar at the airport three' miles northwest o: town. The building improves the appearance of the airport, which has heretofore looked bare. The han gar was built just east of the double gate, .the gasoline pump.

Overmyer and James Me Donald took advantage of Friday's mild weather to play a game o golf. They found no snow, and the ground in the valley at the south west edge of the coiy-se was even moist. On higher ground tbel balls raised clouds of dust.

Mr. iVheeler died in 1927. The new firm vill be known as Elliott, Shuttle- 'orth & Ingersoll. Tyrrell was graduated from the beral arts college at Iowa City In 925, and from the law college in 928. His scholastic record in col- ege was brilliant. He is a member f Phi Beta Kappa, scholastic hon- rary fraternity; of the Coif, hon- rary law fraternlty; . of the Zeta- gathlan forensic society, Iowa City; of Phi Delta Phi, legal fraternity, md of Alpha Sigma Phi, social fra- ernity. -For a time after graduation from he law college Tyrrell was in the employ of the American Law Book Publishing company, of New York city. He has been admitted to the practice In boyi federal and state courts. • Mr. Ingersoll is not the only Algona boy who has. made good in law at Cedar Rapids. Donald, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Hutchison, was graduated at Iowa,City a few years ago, and is now a member of the law firm of Deacon, Sargeant, Spangler & Hutchison. Both Donald and Tyrrell's firms are among the lead- ng practitioners at Cedar Rapids. EXPERT WILL SPEAK ON "DEADBEATS" HERE F. W. -Meyers, president of the Pioneer Service Co., Iowa City, a credit-reporting and collecting agency with a branch in Kossuth, will speak on "Deadbeats We Have Known" at the courtroom next week Friday evening under the auspices of .the Algona Community club. Business men of Algona and other Kossuth towns are being invited by the club to attend the meeting, which will start promptly at 7:30. Following.. the -program the club will be ho'st to all the business men at the Call theater,' where "The Criminal Code,"'a picture which Manager N, C. Rice says will be of 'especial interest, will be shown. Mr, Itteyers has had a wlds experience in dealing wjth deadbeats, both the professional kind and debtors forced by circumstances' to djs- age, took the baby to Sioux City, and tried to place it in an orphans' home, failing to; dp so because they wlth them. The home refused to take the baby. . . They the'n took the baby out into a cornfield near Sioux City and abandoned ,lt. It was discovered some 48 hours later. It was very ill from exposure, but recovered, and is now being cared for in St. Monica's home in Sioux City. The sheriff's office at Sioux City soon traced the parentage of the child to Edith Cairns, of She named Glenn Yearous, superintendent of schools, Glidden. Glidden as the PATTERSON TO BE IN MIDST OF TAX LEGISLATION FIGHT Movie Patrons Now Wait in Warm Lobby Senator Geo. W. Patterson goes to Des .Moines tonight to prepare for the session of the legislature 'which opens next Monday. Friday and Saturday will be devoted to caucuses at which republicans and ^democratic candidates ~ : f or v .speaker regard Some of his experiences, and' {estimate methods of obtaining: payment, will be told.

DeVries, Puffalo Center, had a major operation at the same hospital Saturday evening. mil «ild, weather, father. • ; • • Charge .is Denied. Yearous -denied the' charge. He continued in his position as head of the schools in Glidden until suit was brought to establish the parentage of the child'. Then the board discharged him and he appealed the case to the county superintendent of schools of Carroll county. The school board "based its action on the alleged fact that children and patrons and teachers in the school had lost their respect for Mr. Yearous, regardless of the truth or falsity of the charge which had been brought against him. . Parents Give Strange Testimony. At the preliminary hearing before Justice of the Peace Fred Miller, of Glidden, Mrs. Cairns, m'bther of the girl, said she did not know of her daughter's condition till two hours before the baby was born, and that the girl had been living at home all that time. In the same hearing the father testified ignorance of his daughter's condition. S Yearous has retained the law firm of- Salinger, Reynolds, & Myers, of Glidden, to defend ,hlm and also HobbeJ & Blue, of Eagle Grove. There is much in- the testimony of the girl in the case which might^ induce an unbiased jury to resolve its doubts in favor of Mr, Yearous. Accused Was Army Captain. The case will be decided by a jury, but this much the Eagle can say without fear of contradiction. There is not a person living in Wright county who is acquainted with' any member of the Yearous family who would not testify on oath that he never heard an insinuation of wrong doing of any kind against any member of the entire Yearous family until this unfortunate affair. Yearous was a captain In the army during the war, and is now a major in the officers' reserve. At the time of his trouble at Glidden he was . commander of Merle Hay American Legion. Post and superintendent^ the Presbyterian Sunday school. His friends ' and acquaintances would expect to see him in Just such positions of trust. And it is also the hope of everyone of them that Yearous will be entirely, vindicated in the coming trial. * Latlirop Still HI. C. F. Lathrop, who has be^n critically sick during the last two or three weeks, is not improving as much as had been hoped for. Mrs. Lathrop's sister, Mrs. Julius Johnson, Humbojdt, has been here' <?f late, and Mrs. Jos. Zittritsch is Mr, Lathrop's nwree. „ of the House and president problem of the senate will be named. Sc.nator Patterson will again be one of the outstanding figures in the legislature, not only because he has fathered the proposed income tax but because he was a member of the joint legislative tax committee whose recent report declared for new forms of taxation intended to do away with the state property levy. Two years ago the-House passed an income tax bill, but the Senate refused to consider it. Since then the hard times and other misfortunes have turned the attention of voters to taxation, with the result that the income tax and other means of tax reform have been generally endorsed. In the House at this session Kossuth will be represented by a democrat, A. H. Bonnstetter, who goes to Des Moines tomorrow night to attend the democratic speaker caucus Saturday. Mr. Bonnstetter differs from his party in that he favors the income tax. The main scrap over the speaker- ship will take place in the republican caucus. Nomination will mean election wheirthe House meets Monday morning, The scrap has apparently narrowed down to Francis Johnson, of Terril, and Jos. Johnson, of Knoxville. It Is believed here that the former, who has been strongly for income tax and other legislation favored • by northern A .theater patrons' waiting room Where the former Book and Gift shop was located has been .nearly completed, and decorators .are expected to put on the fin- ,ishing t ou Qhes yet this week. .The room will be a convenient ,tj)lace.'^i.n .which .to,.wait/whenever the theater is filled. ' Something new in movies, "noiseless sound," was tried out out here for the first time in Ruth Chatterton's "Right to Love" last Sunday. This picture was made by Western Electric new process which eliminates static, ground noise, and other noises which creep in,to the ordinary microphone. Patrons noticed the better production of sound. • The machines at the Call were checked last week for the new method, and were found in perfect condition. Walter Will and his assistant operator, Paul Frazier, were highly complimented on the condition of the equipment by an engineer who came here to inspect it.
