A note from Mrs. Donald Weir, county secretary, tells of a new project contemplated for this winter. Her letter follows: "It- has been suggested that the Woman's clubs of the county preserve all extra available vegetables and fruit in their local communities to be stored locally for use by families In need during the coming winter. Any surplus not needed locally could be used where most needed in the county. The chairman of the county board of supervisors has agreed that the county will buy tin cans for this purpose if the women Will undertake to fill them themselves. In nearly every community there is now a home 'can sealer which permits the use of tin cans as containers. With such an outfit you should have no difficulty filling at least a hundred quart cans. "The time to think about relief work is before the need for assistance actually arises and while there is'still abundance of those products that will be limited or destroyed by freezing. Immediate action is necessary if you would cooperate in this very worthwhile program. You can get the cans locally perhaps, if not they are available at AJgona, or may be ordered from the Canners Supply 111 East State, Mason Fenton Man's / Legs Broken John Taylor,, of Fenton, suffered two broken legs Tuesday afternoon when the flywheel of a grinding machine he was operating flew to piec-- es, and a segment of it struck him agross the legs.

ACADEMY TEAM WINS 12-6 UNDER POCAHONTAS LIGHTS The Academy team won from Pocahontas Friday 12 to 6 under the lights in a night game at the Pocahontas field, The game was played wjth a white 'ball and in a misty rain. The first touchdown for the locals was' made in the first quarter when they blocked a punt, and Kanouff ran 30 yards for another touchdown in the third quarter. Pocahontas won Si* points in would allow roads now in excellent condition to deteriorate to such an extent that thousands of dollars would have to be spent on them later. This would be poor economy. The board has levied only enough to care for the roads. New construction is contemplated only on roads now. brought to grade, and these will be graveled. This involves some 70 miles of road, on which all grading has been done. ' County Levy Cut 1'ear Ago. The general county levy was cut one mill for 1930. A new cut for 1931 would have been made but th'e expense of the primary and general elections next year will be heavy and all money levied will be necessary. . . , The poor fund-levy was increased for 1931, and came in for the greatest opposition. Expenses for the first eight months of 1931 totaled $25,362, and the fund is more than $5,000 overdrawn now. Poor relief will be demanded this winter to an even greater extent than in previous years which had showed an increasing tendency. The levy for 1929 was $30,195, for 1930 totaled'$31,746, and the 1931 levy, with increase, wi\l bring in approximately $34,000, JHrs. Elinor T. Button, county welfare worker, started in the fall of 1927. The county had gone without a welfare worker since 1926, when Margaret Neville, then Red Cross secretary, resigned. The work during that year was done by the supervisors, and the amounts spent in 1926 and 1927 were $26,690 and $25,765 respectively., Demands Cause Poor Fund Raise. Olaf Funnemark, of Wesley, speaking for the board, said that the increase in the levy has been caused by an Increase In demands made by the county. He stated that Mrs. Sutton had saved some $4,000 which would have been expanded if she had not been watching the cases. Supervisor Balgeman, of Whitternore, chairman of the board, also ' spoke favorably of Mrs. Sutton's work. The insanity fund was also con- scored three times in the half. Algona's line proved house to the physicians and their guests. S. E. McMahon will serve as toastmaster of the after dinner banquet, which will consist of an address by T. U. McManus, M. D., of Waterloo; another address by W. A. Rohlf, M. D., Waverly, entitled "Kenefick"; and a response by Dr. M. J. Kenefick. Present officers of the society are: president, Bruce Bnsley, M.
