Driven by a strong wind It obscured a cloudless sky like a fog. One could not see three blocks in any direction. Dust crept in everywhere—even food was full of grit in some cases. Showers since then have laid the dust and further greened up the lawns, which will soon need their first trimming Furnace fires have been out for a week. ..j..... i .-• . i Frees are flrwidparents, Mr. and Mrs. R.

Clarence Wed Loar, YOUTH WHO ROBBED PARENTS SENTENCED Delbjert Schulte, who pleade'd not ;uilty'' : when he was arrested and .rpught Into court last week on a t charge of larceny, reconsidered, and his week Tuesday pleaded guilty befpre Judge Davidson at Estherville. He received- a ten year sen- .ence in the penitentiary. Schulte stole $230 which his parents had saved to . pay the taxes on heir farm so a mortgage would not be foreclosed. The theft took place only a few days before the final tax-paying date, and the parents were not able to raise the money otherwise. They noticed that their son was wearing new clothes and displaying other evidences of sudden wealth, and suspicion was thus 'astened on him. Finally he confessed to County Attorney Shumway, Sheriff Hovey, and the grand jury. He then said he was ready to plead guilty, and last week Wednes- lay he was taken before Judge DeLand, but there he sprang a surprise by asking for an attorney and saying he would fight the case. H. W. Miller was appointed to represent him when Schulte said he had no money with which to hire an at- °Schulte evidently became convinced later that fighting the charge would do him no good, especially since he would have to wait in jail till next September before trial.

A tramp OVERLOAD COSTS TRUCK DRIVER $50 FOR NEW PLATES An agent of the state automobile department at'Des 'Moines spent Saturday in Algona, checking up on •trucks for overloads. In some cases overloads were found, and the truck owners were required to obtain higher license plates than they had been using. Other truck owners who plan to haul heavier loads this season have also obtained higher plates. A truck operated by W. L. C.lough, Des Moines, with Sioux City license plates, was caught overloaded when it was unloading at an Algona store, and the owner was required to pay an additional license fee of $50. Truck owners who have voluntarily obtained higher ratings are: Spencer Construction Co., new school contractors, two trucks, one from B to C, the other from A to C, with total additional fees of $40. H. R. Cowan & Son, D to E, additional fee $35. H. W. Post, E. to H. additional fee $30. H. J. Bode, B to C, additional fee $15. There are ten classes of truck pfates with load limits and fees prescribed by law, as follows: Fee $ 15 $ 25 $ 40 $ 65 '$100 $130 $160 $200 Class A B C D E H J Pounds 2500 3750 5000 C2'50 7'500 8750 10000 1111250 K 12500 L $250 O $300 The legislature was debating a proposed new truck law early In the week, and the load limit contemplated was four tons, a compromise between House and Senate. This limit includes both truck and load. FANS PROTEST FIGHTER'S K, 0, IS FRAME - UP Phillips and Manager Say Charges Are Ridiculous. Clarence Phillips won from Geo. Finney, Sioux City, by a knock-out In the fourth round In a card at Lone Rock Tuesday night. He had difficulty in hitting Finney,. an old- time boxer, in the first two rounds, but when a hard blow was landed in the fourth Finney went down for the full count. • Cowboy Hilvety won on a foul from "Kid" White, Buffalo Center, in the first round of a scheduled 6-round go. Runt Shrader, Hurt, and Art Wilson, Fort Dodge, according to local fans, put on the best scrap of the evening, the Burt boy knocking- Wilson out in the third. Other scraps were between Pettit, Lone Rock, and Magnus Lichter Algona, and Veryl Smith, Algonai and another Pettit youth. Paa Hamil, jeweler at the Borchardt store, was referee, ana Joe Bloom Algona, announcer. Local fans were disappointed with the Phillips-Finney scrap, claiming that Finney made no real effort In the first two rounds, according to fans, Finney used ring experience in ducking and dodging. The knock out came so quickly that charges of a frame-up were made, but Philllps's manager, w. J. Becker, says they are ridiculous. According to Becker, Finney was punch-drunk from blows Phillips had landed. The solid blow Phillips got in foi the knock-out put the finishing touches on Finney, who had a brok en nose and a long cut from' thre periods in the ring. When Finney was being brought back to con sciousness after the count, he start ed to scrap the crowd in the ring apparently thinking that he wa; still fighting Phillips. Some fans charged that the flgh was fixed, but W. ,?. Becker, man ager for Phillips says: "There seems to be some conten tlon that the Phillips-Fennlng scrap was fixed, but this scrap so far a Phillips or I was concerned was no fixed in any way. Mr. Fenning may have had some arrangements of his own, but if so the fact was not ap parent before the fight, nor ha anything of the kind come to ou knowledge eince. "The impression that the figh vas fixed arose from a remark Fen ning made when he entered th •ing. He said he was not in condi ion and would probably be knockei lUt. "I 'am acting as booking manage or Phillips in making contracts anc seeing that he gets his money. Th hillips-Fenning match was bookei >y Glen Sharp, Lone Rock, and will- he exception of drawing a suitabl contract for Phillips I had no con nection with it. . i N "My connection with Phillips because of interest in the sport only, not for monetary gain. I re ceive no money or other pecuniar Benefit from the matches. If I eve ind that a match has been fixed my connection with the participants vill be cancelled immediately." Standardization is Pitfall for Youth, Boys are Warned TWO YOUTHS CAUGHT WITH PICKEREL ARE GIVEN FINES Bernard Wilson and H. E. Ellsworth, Algona youths, were arrested last Thursday and fined $20 each on chai-ges of fishing without a license and taking a pickerel apiece out of season. The pair were snaking out fish running up stream at the dam north of town. Game Warden Moses came along and, caught them. Each of the boys was fined $10 on two charges, which made a total of $30 each Plus $6 costs. Neither was able to put up the money, so Justice Wlnkel allowed them a few days in which to get It. There has been a great deal of such fishing In the last few days, according to street gossip, but these boys are the only ones, caught to date. Ellsworth filed .an appeal bond, and sale the case would be taken to the district court.

Boozer, Ames, poke last Thursday evening at a olnt meeting of the Kiwanls and lotary clubs at the Woodman hall t which '140 high school and acad- my boys were guests. Supt. J. P. )vermyer was toastmaster, and In- roduced H. W. Miller, president of Ctwanlans, and W. C. Dewel, pre«- dcnt of the Rotarians, who made hort talks. Lewis Moore gave a hort talk on behalf of the boys. The Rev. Mr. Boozer, former stu- lent Presbyterian at Ames, now a tate Presbyterian pastor worker, vas principal speaker. Mr. Boozer haracterlzcd the four major pitfalls if modern life for youth as standardization, lawlessless, racial preju- lice, and neglect of religion. Standardization, Mr. Boozer said, s being made a goal towards which every youth is more or less bent as tree is inclined. He is taught not to differ from his companions in :alk, work, or Tilay, and as a result ndividuallty Is becoming more and more submerged. If he works harder or tries to do better than the youth of his age he is regarded as a freak, 'nitiative Is killed by standardization, which is good for machines but 'atal for humans. Lawlessness is also 'ixed habit of youth, fundamental laws Algona Markets becoming a Disregard for Is common, though petty crimes are not being committed with perhaps as much 'requency as in days past. Mr. Boozer told of picking two college vouths up on the road They admitted that they had been hired to drive high-powered booze cars from Chicago to Fort Dodge, and they intended thus to earn their way through school. Mr. Boozer remarked in this connection that more attention should be given to the old-time method of education in the woodshed for boys who develop disrespect for law. Racial prejudice is another fault that will have to be dealt with in the next few generations. The Negro and the yellow boy have been insulted, held down, beaten by whites, but the time is coming, sooner than commonly expected, when the millions in China at least will rise to give battle for their rights as human beings. Finally, religion is being neglected by youth more than ever before. This is. the result of the attitude of parents who are perfectly willing to contribute to the support of the church, but consider their duty done with that. Ministers should be encouraged to do their best by the presence at church of youth, middle age, and advanced age. The complaint that ministers do not interest their audiences is too often true, but it Is truer still that only a few congregations give the support by attendance which would inspire ministers to greater efforts. During the dinner, which was served by the Royal Neighbors, music was furnished by Glen Raney and Misses Hullerman and Duhigg. T. H. Chrischilles and Mr. Johnson, of the high school faculty led the singing of Rotary, Kiwanls, and acho&J songs. By Wilbur ,1. and Alice Payne. Close of Business) April 14.

COURT ADJOURNED TILL JOT TUESDAY Court was adjourned Friday to next week Tuesday by Judge James De'Land, after a jury had been drawn in a contract suit brought by J. B. Thompson against L. A. Andrew, state superintendent of banking, as receiver of the County Savings bank, in which $500 is asked. Jurors in the case are Mary Beemer, Lakota; John Becker, Bode; S. F, Blome, Elmore; Edith Chipman, Burt; Roy Coulson, Armstrong; J. W. Harris, Sexton; Alma Hagg, Agnes Marty, Ellis Runchey, and Wm. C. Steele, Algona; A. M. Meyers, Bancroft; and C. F, Mann, Burt. After the jury was drawn and the opening statements the adjournment was announced, Judge DeLand explaining that he would be at Iowa City this week on a case to which he had been assigned by the chief justice of the supreme court. Early in the week the jurors named were notified that they would not have to appear in the case. It is presumed that a jury trial was waived, and trial, if any this term, will take place before the judge. PARKERS IN PARKS FACE COURT TRIAL The city park commission is up against it to know what to do to prevent vandalism in the parks. Chairman Weaver says the commission carefully spends a.goo'd deal of I money to benefit the public, anej; then heedless marauders make it doubtful to go on with improvements. . A visit to Blackford park recently revealed that someone In search of a swarm of bees -had deliberately sawed off, a big limb from one of the best trees. The commission wants to beautify this park this summer and provide water, toilet, benches, and fireplaces, but if the public cannot be trusted to make decent use of the park there seems to be little use in Improving it. At Athletic park the commission erected a modern toilet house, and when the season closed last; year the doors and windows were fastened with boards. Nevertheless someone broke into it and left it in filthy condition. Blackford park has on occasion and the city D, H, GOEDERS IS FISH, GAME COMMISSIONER Turner Appointment is Confirmed by the Senate. Confirmation of Dennis H. Goeders, Algona,. as member of the new state fish and game commission, was made by the Senate Monday afternoon. In addition to Mr. Goeders, J. F. Walter, McGregor, W. C. Boone, Ottumwa, J. N. Darling (Ding at the Register & Tribune), Dec Moines, and Arthur E. Rapp, Council Bluffs, were confirmed. The appointments were made last Thursday by Governor Dan W. Turner,, and confirmation took place In executive session of the Senate. Mr. Goeders has been one of that most consistent and influential workers in the north half of th» state in behalf of conservation, not only of fish and game, but in an nature outdoors. He is vice-president of the Estate department of thei Will H. Dilg League of conservationists, arid has been active in thet work of the League since it was.- formed some years ago. Politics to Be Eliminated. Mr. Goeders has been associated with men who worked for the passage of the new fish and game commission, the object of which is toi take politics and its attendant evils; out of departmental affa'lrs. In th» past politics has played a large part. In administration of the fish and. game department under various wardens, sponsors of the bill charged, and appointment as fish and. game- warden of the state has beeit a major political plum. Appointments of deputy fish anA: game wardens have also depended 1 , 'on politics. In addition, the seining- of rough fish from lakes and streams has been maneuvered into a profitable/business for influential; politicians. The new" commission 'is the result of a six year fight by the Dilg and: Izaak Walton Leagues, assisted bar the Waltonlans,- of Cedar Rapids, which have charged the state department with misuse of funds. A. great deal of conservation work which could have been financed out of funds collected by the department for licenses and received from: state appropriations has not been. done at all or else where an attempt was made the procedure was without the application of scientific; principles. Projects worthless to effect the purpose for which they were supposedly created have been advanced merely for their effect on. politics, advocates of the commission charged. Board to Remove Evils. To do away with the absolute control of one man over the department, the fish and game commission was proposed, adopted bjr House and Senate, and approved by- Governor Turner last week Wednesday. The commission will appoint the state game warden and all deputy wardens. It is understood, however, that Game Warden Alberta Second Burt Dividend. Burt, Apr. 14—A second dividend is being paid by Receiver W. C. Pyle -to depositors of the closed First National bank.

This was the third committee named for that purpose, and up to. yesterday it had failed, like its predecessors, . to reconcile the two houses. The House is strongly against the assessor bill and strongly for the income tax, while the Senate will not pass the income tax bill without the assessor rider. - * Fire Marriage Permits, Marriage licenses were issued last week to Clarence Loar, go, Hum. bold,t, Mildred Thi«lhoren. 18 Lyt--- been the resort of young men women late at night, whereas rules require evacuation of parks at 10 o'clock. The commission has about decided that the only way to compel respect for the parks and the rules of the board Is to employ someone to make unexpected calls, especially after closing hours. In case rowdyism of any kind is discovered, or failure to comply with the. rules, it is^ planned to arrest everyone' concerned and expose them to the disgrace of'pub- lic trial in court. "ROOKERY" AND GALBRAITH SHACKS TO BE TORN DOWN The old building across the alley east of. the Advance shop known as the "Rookery" or "Bachelor Apartments" Is to be torn down this spring. It belongs to the Geo. L. Galbraith estate. Several old shacks on State street west of the Swift & Co. plant will also be removed. The "Rookery" was one of the earliest store buildings in Algona. Once a Galbraith general store was conducted there. Of late years it has fallen into decay. Finally it was appropriated by squatters, who lived there by suffrance and paid no rent. The best known tenants have been- John Fox and Rex Koepke.
