Algona made three "- '-- J ' —'—'— *— yards In two attempts, lost four In another play, and punted to the eight-yard line. Mason City made nine yards on two plays, and then broke away for a 40-yard run around id. On the next play a pass was intercepted by Algona on the 2'2-yard line. Algona immediately punted to the Mason City 45-yard line. Mason City made five on the first play, and then the end run play was good for another 40-yard run, placing the ball on the Algona 20-yard line. Three plays made first down on the 10-yard line. Four more plays only netted Mason City six yards, and Algona, got the 'ball on downs on the 4-yard line as the first quartet ended. Mason City Scores on Smash. Algona punted to open the second period, and the Mason City receiver brought the ball back to .the Al gona Ui9-yard line. Four plays tool the ball to within six inches of the goal, and a smash put it over. The kick was good for the extra point, but both teams were offsides, the ball was called back, and the Mason Mystery surrounds the death of Morris Battln, 13-year-old boy at Spencer, who was found dead In the basement of the lire ruins of a building burned In the fire last summer. The Spencer News-Herald suggests foul play in a streamer headlined story, parts of which follow: Norris Battln, 13-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Battin, of Spencer, was found dead at the foot of an open stair hole in the basement of the fire ruins of the Floete-Cornwall building on Main street just north of the Spencer theatre about B o'clock Tuesday afternoon. The youth had been missing from his home since Sunday night and his parents and the police had been searching for him. When found he appeared to have been dead about .wo days. Cause of Death Unknown. Failure of an examining physician to determine a definite cause of the boy's death, the absence of broken bones or definite fractures skull, and the fact that Cityans had to try over. The sec ond attempt was a pass, which an Algonian knocked down. Algona took the kick-off on the 30-yard line, and on the first play Algona muffed the ball, and Mason City recovered in the Algona 15- yard line. Three plays made five yards, but Mason City was penalized 15 yards for tripping. A pass failed, and Algona got the ball on downs on the 22-yard line. Algona made five yards in three attempts as of the serious wounds or marks about the body o: face were not present have contrib Uted an element of mystery to th' facts surrounding the case. Definite information that th Bettln boy was seen in the compan of two "jungle"' boys, given to liv Ing with hoboes In the hobo cam along the river 'banks, just prior t the estimated time of his deat Sunday night has led to a theor that these youths may know some thing of the circumstances that pro ceded his death. The two boys have disappeared, not having been seen since Sunday night, and police are attempting to locate them. Another theory is that the Bettin boy may have fallen into the hole that the Battln boy remained nut- side with two tough youths slightly older than himself. Although the "jungle pair" had been frequenters of the alleys and streets about the business district of Spencer for some time before Sunday night, they have not been een nor hoard of since. They were 1st seen with the Battin boy in ront of the theater a few yards rom the yawning pit from which- he dead youth's body . was raised t dusk Tuesday. EDDIE SIFERT SHOWS. TRICKS TO KIWANIANS - Eddie Sifert entertained the Ki-J wanis club last Thursday noon with an exhibition of his acrobatics, which have held a place on vaudeville and tree attraction stages for Eddie for seven years. He was dressed in a skin tight brown suit like a zulu, and a wig of bushy black hair completed the costume. His tricks were similar to those he per or may have slipped while climbing into it. A basal fracture of the skull is believed to be the cause of death but the physician who -examined the body stated that a basal fracture would cause the-nose and mouth to bleed and could cause the discoloration of the eyes. He was doubtful, however, that a basal fracture would cause quick death, although he the first half ended. Algona kicked off to the Mason ./vifcjwiitii *»»i-••*-** —— - — City 35-yard line. Two Plays, made only two yards, but a Mason City pass was nabbed for 19 yards, taking the ball to the Algona 40-yard line. Mason City lost two yards on a fumble, then made 11 yards. On the next play Mason City was tossed for a yard loss, but the fourth clown was good tor five yards and a first down. Mason City was penalized five yards for having only six men on the scrimmage line. The I GAIN IT MIGHT , be well to 'provide the co-ejis', rooms with jfe paper baskets inade of cement.

A fumble was recovered for no gain, and Algona received the ball on downs on the 19-yard line. • Four Fumbles In a Bow. Algona made seven, added two, and then four for a first down. An offsides penalty gave Algona five m or e yards, and another penalty .for talking by a substitute added 16 yards for Algona. Algona then made nine yards in two plays, and turn, bled Mason City recovered on the 45 yard line, and in turn fumbled, and Algona recovered. Then an Al stated a fracture of this type might cause unconsciousness from which death might result over a period of time without the victim regaining consciousness. He also told the authorities that it was not impossible that a hard blow to the jaw might have caused an inner fracture of the base of the skull. A blow to the back of the head at the neck might do the same he said. Blows Might Have Killed. This information again gave rise" to the theory that something more sinister than a fall might have preceded the death of the boy in the formed on the streets here for years, but are more difficult now than then.

His body, bent in a sharp curve backward, rests on his chest. Then he puts both palms on the floor, and raises himself straight up-' ward by his arms, with his , feet still behind his head. He has other similar tricks. Eddie is to join his •show troupe in California in the near future. SMALL BOYS FORCED TO RUN THROUGH STREET SANS PANTS Boy hoodlums have been causing embarrasing moments for smaller boys at Fairmont, acordlng to the Rlngsted Dispatch. The larger boys catch the smaller, then' tear off his pants and force him to walk down one of the main streets. The small boy manages to get a block or so, and then hikes for home at full speed to the amusement of the older boys. The authorities have taken a hand in the, matter, and several ap plications of a razor, strop and.-b.leki' ory switches to the older boys have convinced them that there was really little fun in the affair after all.
