SPORTSMEN PLEASED WITH NEW GAME BILL Dllg League sportsmen hereabouts have been gratified to learn that the House at Des Moines passed a bill Monday providing for a fish and rarne commission Instead of the present state fish and game warden. The commission, if the bill is also passed by the Senate and becomes a law, will appoint-a warden. Under the present system the warden Ms appointed by the governor, and there tias for some years been complaint that the office was used as a foot' Ball of politics. The House passed the bill by a vote of 73 to 27, but it must run the gauntlet of the Senate. Local Dilg League members believe Senator Patterson will support the bill, and when it comes 'up in the Senate a number of local Leaguers will probably go to Des Moines.

J. Christensen was chosen president, Mr. Pool vice president, and D. E. Dewel secretary. The annual meeting was attended by 50 men, and the evening was opened with cards. This was followed by a business meeting and a review of work done during the year. One public meeting was sponsored by the club last year, In November conducted by the National Merchants Institute. Another took place last month, when President Meyers of the Pioneer Service Co., Iowa City, spoke. To both meetings al Kossuth 'business men were invited A meeting assisted by the club was a celebration last fall of com pletion of paving at Swea City.

The recent Christmas decorations were the most outstanding ever used in Algona. Supt. J. W. Kelly told the club that a light and power representative reported that at a meeting of power men at Cedar Rapids Algona was • declared among the three most beautifully decorated towns in the state. • • Poultry The Behrends hatchery announces a public entertainment at th.e Al- gpna' Lejglon hall tomorrow night, This meeting Is tor everybody interested in poultry. There wilj be ~~ admittance fee and nothing e Judge P c. Branch By Donald Dewel. The Rotary club, at its luncheon Monday noon, had a "British Rotary club meeting," presented by mem- •jer.s of the club and guests who are of British descent, under the direction of Al Falkenhainer, chairman of the International Servlqe committee. Following luncheon, the club was called to order by President W. C. Dewel, who turned the meeting over to Mr. Falkenhainer. A series of International Service programs -has been planned, but because of the large number of local members who trace ancestry to the British Isles, it was deemed advisable to devote two meetings to the British. Monday's was therefore devoted particularly to the English and the Scotch, and a future meeting is planned to represent the Irish and the Welsh. Mr. Falkenhainer introduced the Rev. C. V. Hulse as president of the "British club" (which the Algonians were visiting) and the Rev. Mr. Hulse called on E. H. Hancher for the toast to the king, with which all British meetings are opened. Members of the club arose and repeated the toast, adding one for the president of the United States. Members refrained from smoking till after the toasts, as is customary at British meetings. • .M. J. Pool read a letter from Wilfred Andrews, preeident of Rotary International of Great Britain and Ireland, sending greetings from that organization to the Algona club. The etter stressed the Importance of the Notary organization in -promoting reater harmony and understanding etween nations which will be a oundatlon of future peace. The same theme was dwelt upon n a letter from John C. Innls, past ecretary of the British organlza- lons, read by G. F. Towne. Mr. In- ils spoke at the Iowa dinner at the Notary International convention at ihlcago last summer, and he eent oersonal greetings to the Algonians he met at that time. He also men- ioned Florence Call Cowles' book, Early Algona," which he compared svith the work of./Herbert Quick in portraying the life of the pioneers of MAN WHO BROKE JAIL HERE •IN 1922 CAUGHT ON COAST In 1922 a man named Charles Graves broke out of jail here when •George Hackman was sheriff. Mr. Hackman broadcast requests to peace officers to pick him up, and yesterday Sheriff Hovey received a message from the state bureau of Identification saying he was being held in California. Sheriff Hovey, however, can do nothing. Nothing was heard of Graves after he left Algona, and the case was forgotten. Now It appears that a grand jury Indictment was never obtained after he skipped, and that the statute of limitations' prevents prosecution. He was accused of stealing some $2000 worth of merchandise from the Madson & Hanson clothing store here. ATTEMPT TO SCARE GIRLS PROVES FATAL Buffalo Center Is Roused When Car Fails to Stop. ..The club rendered assistance to the Tenth district Legion conve tion here last fall, and also donated $100 towards the new Legion hangar at the local airport. The usual $100 donation to Antoinette Bbnnstetter for use in welfare and health work among Algona school children was maofe. A donation of $35 was given to the Farm Bureau to be used in transporting prize-winning calves owned by 4-H club boys and girls to the state fair. As usual the club took an active interest in local affairs, notably the school election, the census recount, and investigation of gas proposals. The census figures were'raised from a first total of 3S40 to 3987. "No Agents" Cards Distributed. Of benefit to the town was the distribution of "No Agents Wanted" cards to housewives tired of the bother of answering doorbells for agents. Following the business meeting D, H. Goeders spoke' on ' the Algona baseball team, and urged members to'contribute more to the 1931 team than was given last year. N. C. Rice spoke on the proposed state tax on amusements and its probable effect on movie exhibitors He asked for a resolution disapproving a 10 per cent tax on admissions to theatres, and the resolution' was passed. A. L. Peterson epoke on the Building & Loan association. New electrically-lighted sign boards will be set UP on No. IS soon to guide traffic to Algona. One wil be located near the intersection of Nos, 18 and 169, north of town probably near the trees west of the intersection, The other will be placed wherp No. 18 turned into town before the cutoff was made. Both will be of large type. / The meeting was followed by a talk by Royal H. Holbrook professor in the. engineering department of Iowa State college, on Iowa. This state, Mr. Holbrook said, is one of the'most favored states in the Union; the only etate that outlined Its own boundaries > and "went to w ar ' another, state to hold the boundary line.

Mr. Heddle was born in the Orkney Islands, and he was a minister of a Presbyterian church at Glasgow for a time. His talk was n the nature of a travelog, and he :ouched briefly on many interesting 'eatures of the British life, though ils time' was too limited for a de- ailed picture. England has a law against tipping, Mr. Heddle said, but he suggested that it was sometimes eafe to 'pay" for extra service if you are particular. In a visit to Parliament, Jr. Heddle was struck with the Intensity of debate in the House of Commons, and he contrasted the appearance of the lower house to :hat ef the House of Lords, where dignity, quiet, and order are impressive.
