Legislature Is Busy Body. , ( Senator 'Bennett said there 'are :rom 800 to 1200 prospective laws introduced at each session of the legislature. The work of the representatives .and senators is tremendous it each endeavors to keep track of each individual bill and have a working knowledge of the underlying principles. To do the preliminary work and Investigation of the bills introduced committees are appointed at each session. These committees determine the merit of each bill, and if deemed important the bill is then referred to legislature as a whole for consideration. Bills of. no merit, or which the committee finds objectionable are killed by the committee. Senator Bennett stressed the importance of keeping Iowa wealth in Iowa and compared the flow of wealth from this state to the east with the flow of loans from the United States to foreign countries in COUNCIL LOWERS PRICE OF SWIMMING TICKETS Season tickets for the swimming pool have been lowered for 1932 by the city council.

CARLOAD OF FARM BOARD FLOUR IS SENT TO KOSSUTH A carload of flour made from wheat holdings of the Federal Farm •Soard is being shipped to Algona by the Red Cross and will be distributed in the county by the Kossuth chapter to unemployed and needy families. There are approximately 308 barrels to a carload. «" •Some weeks ago the Kossuth chapter received notice oC an opportunity to receive some of the flour, but it was passed up at that time in the belief that; other communities more distressed by unemployment had greater need; The national chapter later advised that more urgent needs had been filled, and that •Kossuth was entitled to receive a- carload. -,•.- : •'>''>•.-•;•>•''' '."

That same page will .appear again ne«t week, and if enough other candidates desire -to be accommodated another page will be added.

To help familiarize voter*with the candidates the newspaper* united to offer a combined servicev.' The page features three candidates for auditor, three for recorder, three for jreasurer, three for clerk, five for sheriff, two for county attorney, five for supervisor, three for Algona justice of the peace, an* two for Algona constables. This I* a total of*29 candidates, and ther» are others, unrepresented. For auditor the candidates repr«~ sented are Chas. E. Chubb, Earl f. Griffith, and H. E. Bartlett. Tha- scholarly-looking gentleman wltk the glasses is the present deputy- auditor, whose record In office has been excellent. Mr. .Chubb Is the handsome Algonian who has for- many years responded to calls for surveying; and the efficient-looking Mr Griffith has proved hi* worth as deputy in the county treasurer's, office.
