The first page of Monday's Chicago Tribune carried the following story concerning a former Algona family: "The disappearance of the third •La Grange high school girl in two weeks was reported to the police, yesterday. Mrs. Grace Seward, 20 Pino avenue, La Grange Park, said her daughter Virginia, 15, had been missing since Friday night. 'She wanted to spend the night with a girl friend, and I refused her permission,' said,Mrs. Seward. vShe ran out of the house in a tantrum, and has not returned. "Leslie C. Seward, the father, is connected with the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. He returned yesterday from a, trip." Mr. Seward was for some years cashier of ' the First National bank here. ' •Supplementing the foregoing re port, Mrs. R. H. Spencer, Algona has received a letter from Mri Sew ard In which he says that Virginia and her elder brother Leslie hkd little spat, following which she walked out at 6:15 p. m. wlthou hat, coat, or purse. A man living on the same street saw her going west right after she left home, am that was the last heard of' her. Mr. Seward was telephoned • a Northwood Saturday, and he wen home that night. He has been rep resenting the R.-F.-G. aUNorthwood where both banks were closed Aug ust 1. The family telephoned all o Virginia's friends, but none had seen her. News of her disappearance was broadcast Monday by the WGN sta tion at the Drake hotel. Virginia is only 15, and she is. ,£ junior in high school. She had no sweethearts, and Mrs, Spencer says she is a good girl, easy to get along with. The family doesn't think she intended to leave home, for she took none of her things. She had jusi finished washing the;supper:dishes Virginia and her brother Pau were born here and were .among the ideally" famous" McGregor slree twins of war time.

For three yeare Mr..Mercer played with the Frank fort, Pa., Yellow Jackets, and for two of these years the team was league champion. , Professional football is run undei rules as strict as professional base ball.

'•.;; . • In games the team went about its work in a business-like way, eacl member making his part of play as effective as possible. There was lit tie'or no "rough stuff," because members of the teams had an im' written law against ''roughing" any. one out of the game. It was unethi' ca.1 to put another man put of the game'with injuries who 'was making a living-in the same way they were Only 18 men are allowed on i traveling squad. .Often long jumpi are made between games.
