Outpointed by Hoxwood Community Club Report The following? la the report given at the annual meeting of the Aigona Community club Monday rtlght at the K. of C. hall: The year ending February 7, 1932, was one of the club's most active years In recent times. Every week there was some activity Into which the club entered In a major or minor way, and the directors and officers were kept unusually busy. Perhaps the most outstanding feature, promoted by the.club was the erection of new road nlgns. On No. IS, east and west Of Aigona, large boards wove erected and through co- council elec- slgns have operation of the city trie-lighted. These /~1 C PT4TT r TOO , , —Courtesy M. C.

Stevens have moved from the Xarm, five mljes southwest tf to a farm near Burt. Tbe caused favorable comment from visitors, and questions of cost and maintenance from other towns have been answered. The club has' also maintained eight hoards erected five or six years ago. Four are on Nos. 18 and 169 respectively, on each side of town. They are painted and kept up by the Caughey sign company at an expense of $28 a month. Flower Show Supported. A flower show conducted last summer under .the direction of G. S. Buchanan brought in more exhibits and created more Interest than' a^ny previous show. However, following the show, It was suggested that the expense was too great for benefits obtained, and it was voted that the club hereafter join other organizations, such as the Woman's club, in sponsoring an annual garden club or. home-improvement contest. It is believed this would be. more beneficial to the 'town as a whole. The year's "big stunt" without question was bringing the reindeer and Santa Clans to town. The failure of an autoglro . to appear, as promised by the Des Molnes Register for the same, date was, however, a big disappointment to club officers. The holiday street decorations were as beautiful as in the past, and the club Is' Indebted to the city and Its employee for excellent work. The club sponsored the printing of a corn control pamphlet for the Kossuth Farm Bureau and assisted in the transportation expense of prize-winning 4-H stock sent to the state fair. Benefit Movie Clears $408. A total of $408.55 was realized on a welfare benefit movie sponsored by the club, and this sum was turned over to Antoinette Bonnstetter, school nurse, for her work among Aigona children. The theater for this event and the picture were donated by N. C. Rice The picture, which did not pleasi everyone, had been reported by £ movie critic as one of the best. I had not been previewed here befori it was shown. . Last fall a 'home talent show was given to raise funds for a piano in the new high school auditorium, bu hard times and other factors held the anticipated crowd down so tnucr that the funds realized were not suf ficient to buy the Instrument. Th< show receipts were '$378.20, with an expense of a little more than $150 There ie a balance of $223.68 In th Iowa State bank, and it Is plannec that a similar affair will be given next fall to raise 'the necessary balance. • Convention Is Entertained. Nationally known lecturers at National Druggists Mutual Insurance company convention here laet fall provided the club with . an opportunity to invite business men here from towns In surrounding territory. Invitations were sent to every town within a radius of 50 miles or more, and the response was gratifying. The total expense to the club was only $8.60, all for postage The club assisted in the recent drive for corn donations for drought-stricken farmers In South Dakota, and as its own part raised $200.25 in the Aigona business section. Thth represented a donation of more than 600 bushels of corn. Hotel Annex Urged. Early last year the club got " into touch with E. A. Boss, owner of the Aigona 'hotel, and suggested that a proposed annex be erected as soon as possible. . Mr, Boss has for several years planner} such an annex. The club felt that the town deserves better hotel accommodations, and after a long discussion Mr. Boss said he planned the erection thie spring, provided no further-loss of business because t>f the depression occurred. The matter will probably be taken up again this spring-by the joard of directors," On several occasions the club' has protested the use of State street as a parking place for huge vans and :rucks, and it has succeeded In: toning these vehicles to the use of other streets when possible, On one occasion the entire street was -blocked by three trucks from which freight was undoaded. Such vans are now •equired to await their turn, also to park parallel to the curb, thus conserving space. Train .Abandonment Defeated. Last fall the M. & St. L. railroad sent notice of discontinuance of daily train service between and Hampton. A three-tlme«-a- week service was suggested, but the club opposed the change and' succeeded in having the service rer ained on a dally except Sunday •chedule. •For some tune last summer cars passing over the Northwestern rosslng on Diagonal street suffered evere Jolts. The club succeeded in laving the crossing repaired >satis- actorlly. Six years ago the club offered a ournament trophy CUP for high chool baseball teams in Kossuth owns outside Algonq,. This c«p was won permanently last season by the Fenton high school, and for this ear a similar cup has been provW- d. The school winning this cup wlce In succession,,or three tjjnes ot In succession, receives perma- ent possession. Hospitality Dajg Three Hospitality vents were sponsored by the club, nd all were successful. A,, new' by the. po^ja} 4efiajtmenj; work was done to help make the event a success. The rest room in the basement of the former County Savings bank building has been maintained and lima been a big community asset. It Is kept clean and sanitary, and the appreciation of users is shown by the fact that none of the customary penciling or other outlawry has occurred. Ht. Paul Oroiips Entertained. 'Last spring the club entertained a delegation from the Junior and senior Chambers of Commerce at St. Paul. The delegation had been at DPS Molnes to apply for the 1932 national convention of junior oham- bers and was en route home when it stopped here for dinner. The delegation was entertained at tho Country club and later was taken on a tour of local points of interest. The St. Paul cavalcade was mot at St. Joe, conducted through the Ambrose A. Call state park, and then through the business district to the Country club clubhouse. On return- Ing from dinner a short tour of Algona was made. As usual the club helped tho county fair promote a Fourth of July celebration and the <annual fair. The club also materially assisted In selling bonds for the new grandstand. Both the fair and the Fourth were badly handicapped by weather conditions. Gas Proposals Investigated. Representatives of gas companies have visited Aigona on numerous occasions during the last year, and all were given hearings. Investigation showed! that most of the companies did not furnish gas but were merely trying to get a . franchise they could 'hold .for sale at a profit to -going gas concerns. One man admitted in open meeting at the courthouse that gas could not compete with electricity at present Algona rates if the electricity is used intelligently. The club assisted a club at Storm Lake in a fight against peddlers and house-to-houee salesmen. Cards similar to those used by the Aigona Community club were put up at Storm Lake, and other features of campaigns conducted at intervals by this club were adopted there. A project' which" has come :up within the last week is a request for an anti-hoarding campaign hero in connection with a national campaign sponsored by President Hoover. Organization here has not been completed, and the new board will probably take up the proposition at an early meeting. Solicitors Supervised. During 1931 the club refused permission to solicitors and canvassers in almost every case. All were thoroughly investigated, and only Red Crpss and Salvation Army drives approved. The directors', felt that the city should be protected in these times from drives and appeals for funds for causes which should be cared for otherwise. In a few cases solicitors made the rounds without permission. It is urgently requested, that every business man approached require solicitors to show a card from the Community club. This makes protection secure, for it driven the questionable solicitors out of town. Well-known and' responsible welf'a're organizations seek approval of the club before making drives, and in two cases there was no solicitation here, on suggestion of the club. Sexton Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Olson, daughter Ardeen, Mr. and Mrs. Ted Hoover, the Irwin Olsens, the Bob Hoovers, the Dean Andrews family, and the Schipull brothers spent last week Tuesday evening at Harry Seeley's, the'occasion being Harry'e birthday.
