Prize-fight pictures were shown n Algona late one night, and the ;rand jury was investigating to find the responsible party.' The town was excited, and even now the incident is vividly recalled by older Al- goninris. A man dropped into town one Saturday night with films of the Jeffries-Johnson fight heid at Reno, Nev., July 4, 1910. Late that same evening word was passed around to those who could be trusted and who would enjoy seeing the battle, arid a midnight show was run. Tickets were reported sold at $1.25. Someone who saw the show talked, and Alderman E. G. Bowyer took the matter before the grand jury, then in session. The exhibition of prize fight pictures was banned by state law. The issue was made more intense by the-fact that Johnson whipped Jeffries to take the championship, and whites generally resented the fact. In the south conditions were made difficult. The fact that a negro participated made the battle that much more odius to many Algonlans.

There are, in addition, three other features of importance to every far-seeing automobile owner .., low first cost, low cost of operation and up-kcep, and low yearly depreciation. . '' / . During the life of the car, the day-by-day economy of owning a Ford will amount to considerably more than-the saving on the first cost. You save when you buy the Ford and you save every mile you drive. The reasons for this economy are simplicity of design, high quality of materials and care in maim. factoring and assembling. Many vital parts arc made to limits of one one-thousandth of an inch. Some to three ten-thousandths of an inch. Throughout, the new Ford is an outstanding example of fine crafts* manship in automobile engineering. The more you see of the new Ford—the more you talk to Ford owners and experienced mechanics—the more certain you become of this fact. ...
