Norton, and William Hawcott. The meeting was called at 8 p. m., and tho entertainment consisted of cards till 8:30. 'President P. J. Chrlstcnsen then opened a business mooting, and the annual financial report, the auditing committee's report, and a .review of the last year's-activities were given by Secretary D. E. Dewel. M. 'J.'.Pool, head of a committee In charge of sales of eeason tickets for the' basketball tournament spoke .briefly on the necessity of. support- Ing such activities and announced plans for welcome, cards In store windows and for the sale of season tickets. I). IT. Gocderg Speaks. President Chrlstensen called on D. H. Goeders, who commented on the excellent showing made by the club in 1931 despite hard times and other adverse conditions. He called for a rising vote of commendation for Mr. Chrlsteneen, which was promptly and unanimously accorded. 'Mr. Goeders said that competition Is now not between stores in a town, but is. rather between towns in the same class. In. Algona one's competitor is not the store across the street or In other towns in the county, but in Fort Dodge,. Mason City, Fairmont, Emmetsburg, or Humboldt. If Algona is to receive its share of business, Mr. Goeders said, it is necessary to give at least as good service, good quality, and Rood entertainment as can be had at any other town. - Community pride enters Into a town's prosperity. If people are proud of their town they will trade there, and such loyalty means much' to a town. Algonians who make a. practice of going , to Fort Dodge or Mason City to buy goods are striking at 'their own (-interests." -.•-•;' ••••—.:*-.-- - _;:,.,,..'.-•..., Clirlsclillles Submits Questionnaires.

Dr. M. J. Kenefick. gavp a short talk on community loyalty. He remarked .that no one invited him to come to Algona, but he came, made money here, and felt that the leasl he could do to-repay the community was >to be loyal to it as his own home town. * A., E. Kresensky urged cooperation of the club in sponsoring the activities of Junior baseball leagues of,boys 17 to 21, Such leagues are kept up In many towns every year Mr. Pool was again called on, anc he gave, a short, talk about basebaV activities for 1932. / ' ^ : Following the talks lunch' was served, and then a number of foursomes played cards till a late hour r A review of the club's year is ?lven on page 3 of this week's Advance. > . • • -•• -.. •••-' / * . - William A. was given five years In the penitentiary by Judge IJeald at Spencer Saturday on a charge of embezzlement while he was employed at the Gamble store here for a year and a half.
