George and Dorothy Goetz were at Algona Court Action Would Endanger Road Bonds This editorial from the pen of 5eth B. Calry, of the Whlttemore Champion, la highly Interesting: The decision of the Iowa supreme jourt In the Osceola road bond case, naturally brings up the question how Kossuth would fare If someone vere to start suit In the local courts ind ask for an Injunction to keep :he board from Issuing more bonds, ar even paying for the more than a million that have been Issued. In the Osceola case the bonds were voted with the roads laid out is per the usual program. Later, before the bonds were Issued', the ilghway commission changed the routing on some of the roads, and an Injunction preventing the use of :he money on such relocations was granted by the local courts. The supreme court held that the lower court was right, and turned down an application for a rehearing. In Kossuth, It will be recalled, maps were printed at the time of the bond election, showing just where the roads were • to be placed. The bonds were voted, the first paving was put In, and then relocations came thick and fast. The most notable change was between Whlt- temore and Algona, the entire road 22 PUPILS IN 'DECLAM' TILT AT SWEA CITY Swea City, Jan. 19 — So many are In the declamatory elimination contest here that two evenings this week are to be given over to this work.

Lutheran Church Elects — The Lutheran church held Its annual meeting with a good crowd .in attendance. The Sunday school was reported in good condition with 1S5 enrolled. The budget of the church for 1932 is about $4,000. The board follows; Deacons— John E Pehrson, Arthur Anderson, J. H Holcomb, J. P. .Peterson, Frank Johnson, J. J.

Knutson, treasurer. Arthur Pehrson was elected delegate to the conference meeting, with Richard Anderson, alternate.

Other changes were made at Bancroft and some on No. 9 in the North End. There will be several 3hanges south of Algona before the program Is completed, but should someone start suit it Is likely that the precedent established in the Osceola case would apply here. At the time the bonds wore voted Whittemore township was the only township containing a town that did not approve the bonds and the boast was made by some of the staunch supporters of the bonds that the road would eventually be taken away from Whittemore. Someone did, after a farce of a meeting -at Algona, where everyone spoke for :he old location and no one for the new. Not that we think the town ost a great deal by the relocation, 5ut we can not help wondering what would happen should someone start suit anil ask for an injunction similar to the one issued in Osceola. Such a thing is not beyond the realm of possibility, as there are still many in the county who think bond lasues are something to be shunned and_ who might not be averse to kicking a spoke out of the wheel of progress so-called.

"We have had only a few days Of below zero weather. Residents here 'woulc like to see a lot of snow for th sake of the needed moisture. Thi section, however, wasn't as dry 'las year as other parts of Montana; bu we were nevertheless hard - hit -by dust storms in the spring and a hail storm later.

KOSSUTH NOT CHAN6ED IN PUN TO JOIN COUNTIES As a measure of tax economy It has of late been proposed by Individuals and some newspapers that counties be consolidated, the argument being not only that money would be saved thereby but that in these automobile and good roads times distances have shrunk so much that counties could be much larger than they are now without public inconvenience. A writer in a recent issue of the Sunday Register revived the proposal and offered, a map of the state showing suggested consolidations. In this map Kossuth was left as at present, but Emmet and Dickinson, Palo Alto, Pocahontas, and Humboldt, and Winnebago and Hancock were con* eolldated. li^w^JIJr fl|#ip^ Mr. and ^rs,.qej>rge J?eWUtna, of akota> enent Sunday at Charley Mr. and Mrs. V.
