Made 50 Cents. Early In the summer he left here with the intention of stowing away on a Germany-bound liner out of New York. (Parental objections merely drove him on. When he started he had $5. When he arrived in New York he had $5.50. 'He earned the additional 50 'cents and his food by driving for motorists. That part of the trip was both free and easy. ' Under Number 13. July 19, at midnight, he went aboard the liner Leviathan. 'For a time he mingled,with the passengers, then found -a hiding place under a life boat. He later learned the boat was No. 13. 'Sure he was well out of sight of land, he gave himself up, not quite sure what would follow. He was not kept in ignorance. His schedule by days was aa follows; First day—scrub deck.. Second day—'Paint water tank. Third day — Carry 10-gallon svater pails to scrubbing gang. Rest of voyage—'Kitchen police. On arriving in_ Germany the captain of the ship had Trauger put In a German jail pending the retifrn of the Leviathan. ' ; When the ship was docked in New York the youth was taken to Ellis Island and held there four days while his right to enter the country was investigated. Back in Ames, with all the work a memory, Trauger says It was forth the effort. JOHN1RIEBHOFF, BORN HERE IN '61, DIES OF GANGER Funeral services were held Sunday at the Presbyterian church for John H. Riebhoff, retired farmer, who died last Thursday of cancer, following an illness of more than three months 'at his home on north Colby. The Rev. S. H. Aten, Burt Presbyterian pastor, had charge of the services, assisted by the Rev. J. L, Coleman, local Presbyterian pastor, and burial was made in the Burt cemetery. Mr. 'Riebhoff, who. was 70 at death, was born' December 29, 1861, on a farm nestr Algona.' His father, Michael, was one of the county's earliest settlers, and John was educated in the rural schools of the time. . On July, 13, ,1892, -John was married to Flora Jergensen, who survives. 'Seven children were- born, six of whom survive:-Mrs./ Frank Sudmeier, Marshfield, Wis.; Mra. A. W. Mescher, St. Paul; Mrs, Harry Keith, Algona; Mrs. Roy Crawford, Whittemore; Verne, Burt; and Camilla, at home. > .

Soiithgate, Britt, and therefore had careful home training in her childhood, Including strict adherence to the .truth, even as regards fishing, brought.home a real fish story, towlt, the capture of an 18%-lb. northern pike 40 inches long. Mr. and Mrs. Herbst were out alone in a boat when the fish struck. In its struggles It became entangled in Mr. Herbst's line, which was wrapped around the fish's body. But for this clr-. cumstance the big fellow might not have 'been landed. As It was, it took the combined efforts of Mr. and Mrs. Herbst to get it into the boat, where Mr. Herbst knocked it in the head. ^. The fish was brought home as evidence of the catch for doubt- Ing Thomases, and a number of. .friends of the Herbsts had an-opportunity to test its flavor. DUTTON & LEFFERT PLAN NEW HOME AT H. W.

The 'Kossuth Red Cross chapter is distributing its second allotment-o'f government flour, Dr. W. G. 3ourne, cpunty chapter chairman. old the Kiwanis club last Thursday, 'n addition the chapter has forwarded a requisition for 5,000 yards of :ree bolt goods which will be received soon. The flour is made from wheat iwned by the Farm Board. The bolt roods will also come from the Farm Board, which bought 500,000 bales in an effort to maintain the cotton market. The national Red Cross applied for arid .received large allotments of the wheat and cotton, which were then made, respectively, into flour and lolt goods. local R. C. Units Distribute. Distribution is made by local units m application to the national organ- zation. Last spring Kossuth forwarded its first requisition and re- :eived 1500 49-lb. sacks of flour. This lasted till a month ago, when he second requisition brought 1500 more sacks, now in process of dis- ribution. To avoid duplication and be cer- ain that the flour Is given to deserving families, a complete check- ng system is used. Distribution is made under direction of Jos. Bloom, chairman'of the Home Service committee of the.Kossuth chapter. Only poor families and unemployed are entitled to the flour. Families who own and operate cars for pleasure cannot obtain flour; neither can families which have means of support. 1 Personal Application Required, The head of a family in need, if a resident of Algona', must apply in person to Mr, Bloom; if residing elsewhere in the county, then to the local chairman. If the application is approved he is given a printed.form, on Which appears the amount of flour he is to receive that day. This form must be receipted by the applicant when he receives, the flour, and it is then taken up and returned to Mr. Bloom, who checks it against his list to be' certain that the amount has not been raised; The necessity for this latter precaution is illustrated by the fact that one applicant who was given a slip for a single sack of flour neatly changed the figure from one to two f and received two sacks. The party lives in another town. The forgery- was discovered by Mr. Bloom, and the forger not only lost both sacks, but ever since has been under suspicion every time he applies for help. The average family of five persons requires a sack of flour for every two or three weeks, depending on the age and size of the children. There are approximately 500 Kossuth families who have applied for and received.. Red Cross flour. Flour at Every Town. There is a store of the flour .In every town in the county, the distribution of sacks being as follows: Algona „___• ,, —68C County farm families —— 29 Whittemore ——— SC Swea City," Lakota.

The maximum for any family is 20 yards, but it Is anticipated that the local limit will be ten'yards. Better Than Boll Call Cash, Through this fjour and cloth the Kossuth Red Cross receives much more In value, than has been In as cash In recent years from the annual "roll calls." This year's "roll call" will be held between Armistice day and Thanksgiving day, ijn the "roll calls" Red Cross memberships are sold at a dollar of, which, 60c goes t9 the State and national organizations, the rest remaining here. Family memberships sold at $5 each.- leave $4.50 in the county, so a special effort will 4nade to sell such memberships. Set-Up ot Eossutli Chapter, Other officers of the Kossutb .chapter are: J. F.

The courtroom was filled Friday vening by farmers and others for he second Holiday meeting In Kosuth. Merle Holt, Ottosen farmer, emporary chariman, , called the meeting to order and spoke on the purposes and activities of the Holi- ay movement, urging a permanent nd united organization. Following this talk, nominations were called for to fill the vacancy in ecretary-treasurer left by the res- gnation of Supervisor Olaf Funrie- mark. No nominations were made, 'Ut the following temporary town- hip chairmen were made: Cresco, A. E. Clayton: Greenwood, R. Eichenberger, Portland, Roy nn; Ramsey, Fred Vaske, Seneca, R. E. Saunders; Union, Arthur Gusafson; Wesley, Herman Carlson; (Vhitteniore, Henry Bonnstetter. H. J. Presthus, Bancroft farmer, served as temporary.secretary. The ttendance from other townships was poor, and nominations for hairmen were therefore not made. Dahlhanser Stirs Applause. General discussion of conditions nd possible solutions took place. P. W. Dahlhauser, Whittemore, stirred he crowd to ringing applause when e criticized the backwardness of He east in understanding that .the armer is without., buying power vhen his products sell below cost of 'reduction. ^Easterners, Mr. Dahlhauser said, lave always been organized for pro- ection with tariffs to insure a profit in.d save:them from foreign compe- Itlon, and the unorganized,, farmer ia«r got the short end Tjv'~practical egislation. The farmer's individualism is his best trait, but at the same time it blocks organization. Discussion centered around efforts o control prices of farm products to •ield a reasonable profit above cost if production and shield agriculture [gainst the surplus problem. The rouble with guaranteeing . every armer a reasonable "profit on any crop is that it would turn every armer to' raising the guaranteed products, and this would result in such a surplus that the market would be flooded and no government could keep prices up.. The economic aw of supply and demand still ilocks all efforts to stabilize prices where production is not controlled. Moratorium Ig. Favored. A moratorium on farm mortgages and interest payments was also discussed, and the federal government was criticized for favoritism to investments abroad, whereas farmers receive 'none and' must —— *-•-*taxes, which collection debts.would reduce. The meeting ended at 10 o'clock when IP: W. Dahlhauser moved to adjourn. Plans will now be made for a meeting In the daytime so that all -farmers of the county can attend and help' form a permanent county organization. An effort will be made to get Milo Reno, national chairman, as speaker. SOME JOB TO, GET CITY'S HEW ENGINE INTO PLACE The new i;000 h, p, Diesel oil engine is taking ehape -in the municipal light and power plant. The base, with crankshaft, was moved into the building some weeks ago, but it was necessary to enlarge the. door of the plant building before the larger cylinder'block of the engine, could be moved. The doorway was finished early last week, and the cylinder block was then put in place, The flywheel, which, weighs 15 -tons, has been moved in this week. Other parts, such 'as cylinders and. pistons, will be put in place as fast as possible. Nearly two months' work is yet necessary before the big engine will be ready for use.
