Hovey was the victim of one that received circulation at DBritt. In killing the rumor, the Britt News-Tribune said: Today we carry a news story about a bootlegger bluffing the sheriff of Kossuth county and show it to (be false. There are folks who would like to make .a hero out of every Ibootlegger and ]aw violator. While ithere are many men abroad who •Will shoot if cornered, do not be too quick to believe such flamboyant ;yarns as that In reference to the Kossuth sheriff and Mr. Walburg. Such stories are circulated for one /purpose only, and that is to frighten jpeopte from informing officers when ithey have facts as to booze runners and bootleggers. What for? Because •these people are human and fear the officers. The news story that occasioned ithe editorial follows: For three weeks there has been a sstory in circulation in Britt that a "Certain booze-runner should have stopped at the tourist camp of Syd- atiew Wallburg north of Algona one might. Suspicioning his business, Mr. TVallburg is said to have called the ^sheriff from Algona. The sheriff •went to the Wallburg camp and at*tempted an arrest when the bootlegger informed him he had two /bodyguards in a close-by car armed ivlth a machine gun and revolvers. 'The story went that the sheriff was rbluffed out, went his way and allowed the cargo of booze and the {bootleggers to proceed unmolested. SMr. Wallburg was informed by the Ffoooze-runner that he should sell out tand get away from Algona or he 'would be given a ride. The story was so crude that few •could believe it so a check-up was orm.de through officials at Algona. ITJot a word of truth in the story, tsaid County Attorney Shumway. As !A further check Mr. Wallburg was dnterrogated and he states that the astory had come to him and he only Tlaughed it off as a big lie. Mr. Wall- Jburg says there is not a word of rtruth in the whole story. He goes dfurther to state that the sheriff of 'Kossuth county is a man who will igo his duty and is not going to be •>eoerced by a bluffer. MINNESOTA TO'HAVE TEN DAYS TO HUNT PHEASANTS A ten-day open pheasant season is •contemplated in Minnesota, accord- ting to a letter from that state's fish ;and game warden published in last Creek's Elmore Bye. The Minnesota K>pen season has been tentatively set rtrow October 1 to 26, but no order '3aa yet been issued. Iowa's open :»aason dates are November 6 and 7, 150 land owners in each county petition before the county la Auto Driver's Licenses Can Be Applied For Here Soon Within a few days Kossuth residents may apply for their driver's licenses, according to a letter from the state motor vehicle department, which says application forms will be in the hands of sheriffs this weekend. There is no fee for the person in whose name the car is registered. For everyone else, including members of the family, the fee is 25 cents each. The license issued is good for two years. The new law does not go into effect till January 1, but it is anticipated that at least 10,000 licenses will be issued in Kossuth county. Car registration is more than 7,000, and more than one drives each car. A sample of the application form is shown in the Advance window. On the application there is a space for the name, address and a general description of the applicant. Below this are the following questions which are to be answered: i. Are you familiar with the motor vehicle laws of the state? 2. Have you ever been convicted of any violation of the motor vehicle laws of this or any other state? If so, where? 3. How long have you driven a motor vehicle? 4. Have you ever had an accident resulting in property damage or personal injury? If so state fully. 5. Do you carry liability insurance? 6. Do you have any physical defects that might effect your operation of a motor vehicle? If so, what? 7. Is your sight or hearing impaired in any way? 8. Have you ever had an operator's license? Where? 9. Has your license ever been suspended or revoked? Why? 10. Do you understand highway warnings or direction signs in the English language? 11. Do you know that false statements herein will cause license to be revoked? These questions together with the signature of the applicant complete the application, which is sent to Des Moines by the sheriff, and the 1U cense is sent from that place to the applicant. The license itself is composed of four parts, one of which is kept on file at the state motor vehicle department in Des Moines. The re- ; maining three parts are sent to the licensee. In case of any minor of-, fense one part of the license is torn 1 off, by the judge and sent to the state department if driver is convicted. Three violations are sufficient to revoke the license. No operator's license will be issued to persons under 15 years; of age, except upon written request'io/ the parent when a minor's license may be issued to persons between 14 and 15 years, to be valid only in driving to and from school. The chauffeur's license age limit is 18. Habitual drunkards or users of narcotics will not be licensed. Every licensee is required to sign the license and carry it while driving. Courts having jurisdiction over offenses may recommend to the department that an operator's license be revoked. In case of conviction tor manslaughter, drunken driving, and several other serious crimes the motor vehicle department revokes the operator's license immediately. The operator's pledge which is printed on the license calls attention to common sense driving. JOS. KELLY PRAISED IN FENTON NEWSPAPER The record made by Supt. Joseph Kelly with the Algona light and power plant was the subject of an editorial in last week's Fenton Reporter, published by Swartz & Peterson. The article follows: Starting as a lineman and operating engineer in the Algona municipal light plant 25 years ago, Joseph Kelly was appointed superintendent by Jos. W. Wadsworth after serving six years in the capacity already mentioned. Through efficient and careful management since then, Mr. Kelly is perhaps, mainly responsible for bringing the Algona light plant out of a morass of debt into the best paying electric light plant in the middle west besides saving Algon- ians thousands of- dollars on light rates and taxes. It is said that Mr. Kelly has had various offers from electric light corporations with inducements of a larger salary or other considerations, but has always refused them. The Algona plant is a constant stumbling block for the high line companies and they would like nothing better than to have him out as the success of the Algona plant is attributed largely to Mr. Kelly. The least that Algona could do when the time arrives for Mr. Kelly to retire is to give him a pension for his faithful service. -*SIXTEEN LAKES IN ONE COUNTY HAW DRIED UP , county, Minnesota, lakes have suffered severely from the dro«ght,"and at least 16 of , them have disappeared, according to the Fairmont Sentinel. The Sentinel says: Save; for a few small mudholes, the a .reas,. .that were covered with as much as six or eight feet of water ape, now overgrown with vegetation. In a few instances the lake bottoms still are covered with a few inches of wafer but as in' the case of Temperance Iftke near Sherburn "a, .snipe can. walk aprogg without getting his knees wet." Lakes listed as dry, or nearly so, are Rose, Sager, Swag, Silver in Martin and Kossuth counties, Clear, Pierce, Mud, HUgendorf, Susan, Fish, Temperance, Eagle, Buffalo, North, High, and Murphy. WINS GAR BUT IS ARRESTED WHEN CLAIMS HIS PRIZE Winning a car and then landing in jail' as he stepped forward to receive his car was the unusual experience of an Albia man, as reported by the Albia U.iion-Reputali- can-. L. T. Barthlow, of Ottumwa, ran into a bunch of trouble, when he had the good fortune to win the automobile given away at the Labor Day celebration at Agan's oil station. When he stepped to the platform to claim his prize he was placed under arrest and within an hour" afterward he had given up his new sedan as bond befoje Justice Morris. Barthlow is thei age'ni in charge of several of the! slot machines, which were recently:' seized in ,a raid here. Information " :charging. : him with assisting in the operation of a gambling device was filed Aug. 24 and since then Albia and Ottumwa officers have been searching for him invain. Monday night Barthlow was announced as winner of the car and stepped up to receive the award. Sheriff Robinson and Deputy Tedford, who were on the grounds, recognized their man and arrested him at once. At the Call Theatre A Review of the Recent Talkies by T. H. C. J. H, HUFF, SEXTON, BURIED THURSDAY John H. Huff, of Sexton, fomrerly of Lu Verne, died last week Monday after being in failing health for more than a year. Funeral services were conducted at the Sexton Methodist church last Thursday, with the Rev. Mr. Moore in charge, and burial was made in the Wesley cemetery. Mr. Huff was born October 16, 1848, near Columbus, O., one of nine children of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Huff. He was baptized and later confirmed in the German Lutheran church. He was married to Mayme McMullen March 15, 1893, at Guth- rle, 111., who with seven children survive. The children are Cecil, Lu Verne; John, Leslie, William, Ray, and Clarence, Sexton; Mrs. Stanley Gardner, Algona. A daughter Gertrude died in 1924. He is also survived by two grandsons. The Huffs lived in Illinois till 1910, when they moved to Hesperia, Mich., where they lived five years. In 1915 they moved to a farm Hear Lu Verne, later coming to his farm northeast of Sexton. Attending the funeral from out- of-town were Mr. and Mrs. Reese McCormick, Scranton. Mr. and Mrs. Edward Brown, (Eagle Grove; Mr. and Mrs. G. Gunderaon, Rowan; Mr. and Mrs. Will Janson and daughter Ruth, Webster City; Mr. and Mrs. David Huff, Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Huff, and Mrs. Kate Huff and son Jesse and daughter Nellie, of Lu Verne /~\NE OF THE MOST pertinent '-' and welcome signs in Algona these days (and nights) is the one which hangs in the foyer of the Call theater. It says, simply, SILENCE PLEASE. What a discussion, what a philosophy, these two words incite during the present strenuous times. Thank heaven, there is still one place where we may go and not have to listen to accusations, damnations, prognostications; after a weary day on the street and in the office, what a relief to seek the seclusion of a haven that requests, nay, demands, golden silence. It ought to be worth r ,0c of 'anybody's money to be able to sit in a combortable, upholstered chair ,and) not have to listen to someone say',' "Have yoij heard etc. etc. ?" One of these days, we are going to steal .that ! sign and hang it up in half ar dozen places where it might do even more good; we are sura public-spirited Manager Rice would gladly have a dozen more printed if he thought It was going to help the community. At present it is doing a world of good where it is. n EADERS OF THIS, rectangle of •IV rigorous ranting are already aware of our attitude toward "child acting"; there is nothing entertaining nor pleasing about seeing children parading across the stage or screen. Too often, under the direction of grown-ups, they Imitate the antics of their fathers and mothers, which is extremely painful; heaven deliver us from a precocious chllu, either in the flesh or the talkies. Huckleberry Finn is the almost perfect child's picture, taken from-any and all angles. Under the able genius of Director -Norman Tourog this simple tale of child life from the pen of Mark Twain unfolds as naturally as a summer sunset—and as beautifully. No attempt at ostentation is made, no grand gesture to weave into the original story, a box office appeal other than an atmosphere of perfect naturalness. What mature man or woman was not moved by the simple spectacle of the lazy river, the picturesque steam; boat, the typical school room? ''.-•" THE CAST is uniformly goo*and the following quartet bear the burden of putting-this picture across- Jackie Coogan, Mitsd Green, Junior Durkin, and Jackie searl. Of the four, Junior Durkin as Huckleberry Finn gives the most earnest, con- vinclng performance, breathing jnto the role of the unfortunate adolescent a sympathy which touches the heart-strings. Another creditable thing about this picture is the unusual fact that no attempt has been made to, wring a sob or a tear from the audience. Too many times in the past, t where children are concerned or involved,* some tragic little episode, entjrely Irrelevant, such as a dying flqg, is Introduced to bring out the han4k,erchiefs of tfee' suffering customers. Give' Huckleberry Finn credit for sticking to the simple story as written by Mark Twain and not trying to improve the genius of this American writer of child lore by adding pathos, adventure, or what have you? IF YOU HAD misgivings about this picture and stayed at home, you missed a really great show; we will have t o admit that we came within an ace of doing just this very thing. So you see, you never can tell. That applies to Life as well as to the movies. '"TO CRITICIZE WILL ROGERS •»• would be like attacking Marriage, Education, Religion, or any for our so-called established institutions; he, probably more than any other living American, is typical of our great country — the rawboned, homely personification of the wide- open places — the frontiers — the ever alluring golden West. Into this diamond In the rough personality, has been thrown a liberal dash of humor which he has capitalized until he Is one of the best known Americans in the world. He Is the only nationally known character who has never disappointed an audience—witness the last presidential campaign when both Hoover with his bromides and Smith with his Bowery twang let down millions of radio listeners; Will Rogers was always a sure bet, his ready wit and (searching observations seemed to dim even the efforts of the aspirants to the United States highest political honor. So much for Will Rogers. IT IS QUITE fitting that George Ade has written the story from which Young As You Feel was taken; two humorists, and good ones at that, ought to put over almost any talkie. And this humorous tale of. the typical, iofl.% American business man who suddenly dls- covers that there is more i n life than the pursuit of the nimble dollar, is a gem. Even Fifi Dorsay whom we have never cared for. is excellent in the role of the lady who. Lit n , ts ,,^ way for Wln - £«32?

Here is a simple story of two .young ' lovers, told with for- glveable. frankness, who marry, struggle with" the tremendous problems of Life;:have a baby, and live happily evej^iafterwards.
