Last Thursday a Red Cross request from Bui'ke, "S. D,, by the Algona Community club. The-message asked for the lowest price. There now is, little hay for sale in the county, though formerly Ledyard was a hay center. A form letter was received Monday from De Smet, S. D., appealing for donations of corn, oats, barley, ollmeal, or any other kind of livestock food. According to the letter, 1930 crops were abnormally short, and in 1931 drought and a grasshopper plague practically stripped the country. Most farmers had fo cut their corn when waist high for fodder, and the letter says that even Russian thistles and all other unaccustomed roug stored for feed. This,' however, had little food value, and the supply was soon exhausted. The letter asked for a carload of feed. Freight charges will be paid at De Smet. In many cases the railroads operating In the Dakotas are movjng donated cars free. The De Smet relief association guarantees that donated feed will only be used to relieve actual starvation. Receipts in triplicate are to be taken from farmers who receive aid, and one of the receipts will be mailed to the donor. Similar appeals have been received at other points in th» county, Ti- tonkas and the vicinity, including farmers in Portland, German, Buffalo, and Wesley . tqwnships, have undertaken to ship a carload. A similar car was shipped a year ago from -Tltonka, and • Carl Gejshing, who h,ad charge of .the shipment then, is again in charge. It is reported also-' that groups, at Whittemore and in .other parts of the county are planning to send shipments, HU6H RANEY TO MAKE RUN FOR SUPERVISOR IN FIRST Hugh Raney, Irvjngton township, has announced his candidacy for supervisor in the first district against F, J, Balgeman, Whittemore, who Is seeking a fifth term.

Dean C. F. Curtlss, elder brother of F. M. Cut-Has, former Algona lawyer now living at or near Spokane, Wash., has reached the age limit and must retire. Besides Mr. Godfrey a half dozen candidates are toeing considered by President Hughes, the appointment. who will make A delegation of lowans favorable to Mr. Godfrey appeared before President Hughes last week Monday to urge his' appointment. M. P. Christiansen was the only Algona member of the group. President Hughes has also heard one or more delegations favoring other candidates, particularly Professor Kildee, dean of animal husbandry at Ames. President Hughes has not yet indicated his choice, but it is known that he entertains a high opinion of Mr. Godfrey's qualifications for post. The dean of agriculture is the the first official of the Ames school under the president, and other deans work under him. The salary is $6,000 a year and a house and other perquisites go with the office. The fact that Mr. Godfrey is a member of the state board of education, which has supervision of all state schools, stands in the way of his appointment! but Mr. Godfrey's friends hope to convince President Hughes that this is not an insuperable objection. NEW FLOOR LAID IN BEHLMER STORE Carpenters began work last weekend to.rebuild the interior of the'J. F.-Behlmer: candy kitchen known as the Algonquin, und if is believed that Mr. Behlmer will be able to reopen within a couple of weeks. The floor from the rear wall up to • the front end at a point past the soda fountain is being taken out. The Joists were so badly burned as to be useless. The basement must be rewired, and some of the wiring upstairs most be replaced. Most of the other damage resulted from thick, oily smoke which penetrated even wrappings of packages supposed to be air-tight. Even clg- aret packages wrapped in cellophane were so permeated with smoke as to be unsaleable, and all candy, gum mints, v etc., were worthless. Mr. Behlmer had just stocked a part of his candy supply for Valentine's day, and this also was ruined. According to plans, the interior will be arranged much like it was before the fire. Th.e booths, which were only slightly damaged, will be put back along-, the side-walls, and other fixtures will be in approxl mately the same location. A feature which will be missed when the store opens is the painting on the upper half of the walls. 'The walls and ceiling were so badly smoked up that they must be redecorated, but there will be only a plain finish.

Claims Bank Forced Transfer to Save Bormann Son. , Claiming undue influence as th»< result of alleged danger to his son. Peter, former kossuth County State bank employe, Mathlas Bormann, ot Chicago, has intervened in proceedings in the Kossuth district court to foreclose mortgages given by Geo* H. and John Bormann. Trial of the foreclosure suit is scheduled to begin this morning. In his intervention petition, Matfi- ias Bormann says he held the original mortgages, which covered land In the St. Joe neighborhood, and that he assigned them, with the accompanying notes, to the bank t* avert the danger facing Peter. Mr. Bormann now asks that the assignment be declared null and void and that the mortgages and notes be re- Instated in^his name. Ilecelver Starts Suit. The foreclosure proceedings wera- begun in December by the bank receivership. 1-Mr. Bormann claim* that when he'.turned over the mortgages the bank assured him that it- would protect him against want. which he alleges has not been done. Since 1926 the mortgages have been renewed, and they now stand in tha bank's name. Legal -talent arrayed in the case causes interest among attorneys and: court attaches. D.'M. Kelleher, ot: Fort'Dodge, is assisting Sullivan. McMahon & Linnan in Mr. Bormann's behalf. Senneff, Bliss, 'Witmer & Senneff, Mason Olty, are assisting T. P. Harrington for the receivership. ""Prosecution Hulked. An interesting sidelight is th* probability that if Mr. Bormann. wins his case no criminal action can. be, instituted against Peter for alleged criminal acts, because tha. statute of limitations requiring com- mericement of an action within two years after discovery of a crime ban run out. Whether the fact that; Peter Bormann has not been in tha, state since 1925 affects the limitation is a question in this connection. In any event it is probable that<h* could riot be forced to return tot Iowa, for he did riot leave the state* as a fugitive from'justice. Mi-. Bormanri's story, which borders on the sensational, Is in parfc told in the following excerpt from. his petition 1 : , "That the said bank, acting through one Jos. Auner and other agents and officers, for the purpos*- of compelling this intervenor to sub—• mit to the demands of the bank,. _.. stated that said, bank and its officers would, unless the intervenor did comply with said demand, immediately put one Peter Bormann.

"That upon Intervenor stating that if the bank and its officers did put the said Peter Bormann in the penitentiary he might be released in r •., few years, and that he; intervenor, , could then help him on his feet again, said bank, through its officers and agents, stated that it would- see to it that he/remained in thar penitentiary at least 15 ' years, and 1 that unless said notes and mortgages were forthwith transferred t«? the bank, on that day, the sheril-f' would take the said Peter Bormann, away at once, and they would never see him'-again.
