The meeting, tho Kmmetsburg Reporter says, was called by the committee on Reduction of Public Expenditures, appointed by Governor Turner. Local county taxes bear the brunt of the attack in these meetings, many of which have been lield recently. A motion was carried at Emmets- fcurg calling for a committee of •three to secure the necessary mini- br of signatures to reduce the number of supervisors of that county from five to three.

The phone Godspeed and hope they Allan Robinson, former.; citizen not unknown to the law enforcement officers, was given 12 hours to leave Racine, Wis., by a rival gang, or be taken for a'death ride, the Bancroft Register reported last week. Robinson's warning became known when he appealed to the police for protection till he, his wife and two children were able to leave town. A dispatch that appeared in a Racine paper follows: While four city detectives armec with a machine gun and sawed-off shotguns stood guard, Allan Robinson, 35, confessed bootlegger, Thursday prepared to leave Racine with his wife and two children, after receiving a death threat. Death Threat Given by IMiono. Robinson returned home Wednes- sev- rang ant man tolc day night after an absence of con- j Robinson answered.

After this first morning no one was to whisper before six o'clock, •wore requested to stop all road building work till the depression ends. The county agent came under fire from Farm Union sympathizers. A Sir. Duns, of Graettinger, suggest«d that during June, July and August that the county superintendent rjnileage be stopped, saving $345 a year. State and U. S. Senators of tlie district and Congressman Gllchrlst and the Palo Alto representative •were instructed to work for lower salaries of all state and federal of- Slcials. Opposition to President Hoovter even then we couldn't help waking Alto county ] eru .]y. -was expressed in a set of resolutions adopted at a similar meeting -at Clarion a week ago Friday. Senator Oscar Ulstad was chairman of 'the meeting, and H. W. Barnes, publisher of the Eagle Grove Eagle, •was secretary. The meeting was conducted along the same lines. lioan companies were requested to renew loans at the present figure "Without asking for reduction in the amount, and removal of the penalty lor failure to pay taxes next month •was also asked. AVant State Price Control. A suggestion was made that Governor Turner apply the same treatment that Governor "Alfalfa Bill" Murray did to oil, and hold by force, 4f necessary, all grain raised^ in Iowa till the price rose. The suggstion •did not meet with much favor, be- «ause of almost impossible execution, and because the relief would be anegligible. The resolutions, prepared by Mayor Beer, of Eagle Grove, as -adopted, follow: Whereas, the one hundred twentj anillion people are now confronted •with poverty, starvation and suffer ing- while the few of a great wealth live in luxury, and with arrogance control food, clothing and necessi •ties of life, and refuse and oppose Teasonable relief of any nature to •the people who produced the wealth and incomes that great wealtlj now controls and directs and, Whereas, the farmer, laborer, anc man of small business have been preyed upon by great wealth unti *hey have lost their position in life •accepting whatever big busines: iBays shall be their allotment, and, Whereas there is not a sufficien amount of money per capita in cii dilation to take care of business the needs of the people and interes payments to great wealth, and th dollar is ever increasing in valu runder the gold standard and ou of proportion to the value of wheat, corn, cotton and other products of fthe land and, Whereas, those in power have i failed to keep their pledges, Now ^therefore be it resolved: That we denounce and condemn great wealth for its indifference to poverty, starvation and suffering. : Great Wealth Is Condemned. That we demand a rate of inter- «st such as other approved security •lias. That we demand a substantial increase in the per capita of money. That w® endorse the equalization fee as a relief for agriculture. That we demand a revision of tiio federal income tax such as will keep large fortunes under control and investigation. That we favor a constitutional amendment abolishing all tax exempt securities so that wealth will t»ay its just share of the burdens of government. That we demand that a plan be worked out immediately whereby those who have profited out of labor shall feed the laborer. That We oppose the nomination ol Breakfast at seven, assembly hall at eight, demonstrations, style show and health examinations afterwards each day. Monday was open night to do as you pleased so naturally the weather man permitted it to rain. In spite of the fact we donned our raincoats and went to see "The Great Ramjah" a play, a real comedy. Can 4-H girls and boys have a real live party? For answer, you should have seen hundreds of girls in blue and 4-H boys too, on Tuesday night. First a group of acrobatic girls from Iowa State college entertained us for over an hour. Then we sang songs we all loved. Third came the frolic. Each girl was given a colored ribbon of crepe paper, to put on her arm or around her head, lost of them were used as ribbon ands for the head. The colors were ink, orange, yellow, lavender, pur- 'le, red and others. Each girl be. onged to her color. In Winning Contest Group. I wonder how many of you heard iounds of merriment this night, you •eally should have for we played ;ames outside on the large porches ind many fair visitors told us af- erwards how they enjoyed watching us. We are all self-conscious, are we not? I'm glad I didn't know others were watching. The purples, led by our own state president, Gertrude McDonald, won the most games and guess what the prize was. You can't, I know; we couldn't either before we were shown. Mr. AVentworth stood behind a screen, but finally brought for'h two large watermelons for thj girls who won.

At the A Review oi the Recent Talkie* Union. Sept. 8 — Kossuth rowers are consistent prize corn winners. At the state fair which closed Friday nine Kossuth farmers cap- tired prizes on corn exhibited from the northern section of the state.

Colemaii, Pastor—Vacation is over, and again we hear the call to work, and expectation of the harvest. Lest some may forget, we remind you of your place and opportunities In the activities of the church. Morning worship in study and sermon, is worth noting in your plans . . Evening Y. P. S. C.

Another dispatch said: Scores of "distillers," alky runners and armed watchmen, -with the! families had quit their homes anc their places of employment. Al Rob inson, who told everything after hi had been threatened with death, hac folded up and had departed for plac es not so hot as Racine—his housi was dark nnd empty. In homes connected with the "dls tilleries" there was evidence tha the families had'left'without much formality. Bootleggers Leave In Hurry. Beds had not been made up; dishes remained on tables; food was spoiling, and everything indicated hat there was a rapid exodus when vord was spread that the "feds" had nvaded the bootlegger's haven. Friday night, when the prohibi- ion men had completed their work, he toll was: Five 500-gallon stills, one 2,000- gallon still, one 750-gallon still and one 100-gallon still. Two hundred gallons of alcohol were .found in cars evidently ready for .delivery and a cutting plant where an untold imount of liquor, much of it bottled ind ready for the trade purchasing T HE SCOPE OF THE TALKIES Is, after all, quite limited; witness such pictures na Outward Bound and The Last Flight, studies In psychology and the Intricate workings of the human brain. They fall pretty flat with the average movie patron because, before anyone In the audience has an opportunity of realizing the serious Intent, the picture Is In the final fadeout. Below the suf- face of apparent comedy In The'Last Flight, there lurks a tragedy so Intense that It fairly sweeps you off your feet. After n>ll ls the talkies are built with a careful eye on the box office and pictures like this one arc never b. o. successes, therefore there Is no trend In this direction. If there were, we might expect great things In the field of really serious productions dealing with the subtle processes of the mind. ' THE LAST FLIGHT Is the story of a group of war-racked aviators whose nerves have been shattered by the horrors of war and who linger In Paris after the Armistice to drown their sorrows. They meet a feminine derelict (Helen Chandler) a piece of human drift-wood who Is tired of the struggle and sees In this happy, ap-, parently carefree little group, an escape from Life. Their Incessant chatter about trivialities, their constant fight to forget—these form the action of the picture. Strangely, Richard Barthelmess is the most miscast of the lot and Elliott Nugent carries away the honors in his accurate portrayal of the shell- shocked, battle wrecked veteran of the great war. David Manners and John Mack Broun also give outstanding chararter studies. THE STORY seems to follow Ernest Hemingway's, THE SUN ALSO RISES, In every detail, even term,in- ating with the bull fight In Portugal but of course Hemingway's rather crisp and often frankly brutal style could hardly be brought to the sliver screen so it has been sugar coated, with a kind' of Michel Arlen ael as this latest vehicle 'of Janet Gaynor and Charles Fafrell.' That It is the rankest kind of romantic hooey, no^.'pne dare deny; that It Is the literary level of Harold Bell Wright and the Ladles Home Journal, we must all admit; that the. story Is Impossible ns to plot and positively stupid as to dialog Is as apparent as the nose on your face. But with all that, Merely Mary Ann seems to fill that aching void which nothing, but romantic- love stories can. One old couple directly In front of us laughed and cried at the rising nnd falling fortunes of the pathetic Jlttle Mary; who are we IN PLANT It was just~>r Thursday ti lll( , (1 Algona to heir Kill years '• Kelly ago 1 gona municipal || Knt has been employ/,,) ,, Plant, i that w.e should "high hnt" the talkies cheery thing I waiting never forget is cars in lines while more than 1000 -4-H girls and boys crossed the street at one place.

Perhaps you wonder how much it takes to feed these girls and boys who must get hungry. One evening, Wednesday it was, we entertained the legislature for supper, sang for them and received their songs in return. That night we learned that 300 pounds of ham and 20 gallons of milk was served, at each meal. There were 1482 garments exhibited, and the 99 counties were represented in health, judging teams and many in style show, also home furnishing, canning, and baking exhibits fit for a queen. All the other places of interest on the fair grounds are too numerous to tell about. Let it be said now— I can't forget those dormitories, leaders, and girls in blue. They are friends of mine and I'll keep them always. May the other girls in blue and white in Kossuth county feel as I do. FORMER ALGONIAN IS BURIED HERE Mrs. Peter Juhl, better known to Algonians as Mrs. Joseph Sutton, was buried here last week Tuesday afternoon. Mrs. Juhl died a week ago Sunday at her home at Clear Lake after a short illness. Services were held at the Ward funeral home at Clear Lake, and the body was brought to Algona for burial in Riv- ervlew cemetery, where a short service was held at the grave. Mrs. Juhl, whose maiden name was Laura E. Sommers, was born at Galapolis, O., March 25, 1S62. In Sooth Cresco WESLEYANIS STRICKEN WITH HEARUTTACK Wesley, Sept. 8—Fred G.

It consisted of songs, readings, talks, and music. Miss Martin, missionary from Africa, who is visiting Mrs. Peter Skow, gave an address. She told of her experiences with various tribes in the wild grass-lands of the Congo. Miss Martin represents the Unevangellz- ed Tribes Missions, which is interdenominational. An offering was taken to help some missionaries home for their furlough. dozen people who saw the picture at the Call enjoyed it; whether this Is a reflection on the average movie audience or a just criticism of The Last Flight, we'll have to leave to wiser heads than our's. You either like pictures like this or you don't. which bring at once laugh and the sniffling sob to hundreds of real movie fans MERELY MARY ANN Is the simple story of a poor little orphan waif and a rich Influential English musician: the gentleman finds In the little girl a touch of sympathetic un- derstnding and while the interest In one another is fairly pulled In by the "hair of the head", so to apeak, the plot runs true to Its ultimate conclusion when unhappy lovers are reunited and "live happily ever afterwards." If you like Janet Gnynor, you will probabjy say that this is her best picture; if you like Charles Farell, then you'll say this is his great- st role. If It doesn't jar on your verly sensitive nerves to see a cook anclng around with a kettle In one land and a salt-seller In the other O^'the, tune of a piano solo, then /ou'll probably overlook the short- omlngs of the plot. What, with a eatltlful setting and some gorge- nis ocean scenery, more may one vant to spend'a comfortable, enjoyable "evening at the Call than such a combination?

T HE FALL SEASON opens .auspiciously at the Call theatre with Sweepstakes as the second successive hit of the new month; here is a "gem" of a talkie because it is just its honest, simple self. You know how good it seems to meet a quiet, sincere man after talking wltji a egotistical wind-bag; well, the movies are just like that. The director of Sweepstakes has caught the atmosphere of the race track in a realistic manner which leaves even the tenderfoot with the smell of the stables on his heels. Eddie Quillan turns in a masterful perofrmance ol the conceited jockey who suddenly finds himself a victim of circumstances and in standing by his erstwhile pal and trainer and his horse finds himself disqualified from the turf. The story Is simply told, without flourish and without exaggeration and leaves an impression of sincerity so often lacking in productions of the screen. JAMES GLEASON as horse train er and keeper of young Ediite is per fectly cast, in fact, we have neve; seen him in a part better suited ti his peculiar talents. Marlon Nixon grown a bit stout and mature, play the "love interest" with considerabl enthusiasm and seems to be inspirec by her young partner. Lew Cod; supplies the villianous backgroun< with his usual unassuming assur ance. SWEEPSTAKES is well photographed and the scenes on the race track are marvels of realism, bringing the excitement and enthusiasm of "following the ponies' to even a greenhorn. We thought the latter scenes of the picture in Mexico were admirably handled, combining a waning cockiness on the part of the a pathos Score two tlnuousl mart and first six Intendrnt f,,,. fvor slncp. „ City, JOB.
