The Algona Independent football team defeated the Fort Dodge Country club team, 14-0, on the local field Sunday afternoon, In a game filled with thrills before one of the biggest crowds yet, taking Into account the chill weather. The ground was wet, following rain Saturday afternoon and night, and both teams were handicapped by the slippery ball and field. Algona scored first, in the second quarter. Coach Mercer, on a play, faded back ten to 20 yards, intending: to pass; but the Dodgers covered the receivers, so he dodged two tacklers, and started a run.' The Algona linemen sensed the situation, and started in to block, with the result that Mercer dodged and twisted 55 yards for a touchdown. The.second touchdown came in the final period, when Reed grabbed a 30-yd. pass, .standing behind the goal line. Games Full of Thrills. Both teams played fast ball and kept the crowd excited. There were several long runs by members of both teams. Algona goes to Sutherland next E. A.

The Mason City high school's football team defeated the Algona high school eleven 39-0 under lights at Mason City Friday night. The first and last quarters were not uneven In results, each team scoring a goose egg, but In the second and third quarters the Brick- makers ran circles around the locals. Mason City scored 20 points in the second quarter, and 19 in the third. Algona's line-up consisted of Shackelford, Schultz, Post, MlUer, Green, Hutchlns, Nordstrom, Cowan, Hilton, Cretzmeyer, and -Bruns. Substitutions were Stevenson, Monlux, Medin, Sellstrom, and Spencer. Academy Wins from Fonda, •St. Cecelia defeated the Fonda academy on the Fonda field Sunday, 13-0.- The first score was made in the first quarter, when after power plays with Hansen around ends and Capeslus through the line the locals plunged for a touchdown. In the second quarter Algona held Fonda on the defensive in Fonda's territory. A thriH came when Junior. Kelly received a klckoff In the second half and returned the ball to Fonda's 20- yd, line, but fumbles and penalties prevented scoring. Fake Plays Win Touchdown. Two passes in the fourth quarter Which netted more than 20 yards apiece paved the way for a fake play in which Omar Kelly ran through for the second touchdown- Excellent linework Is reported on the part of Heggarty, Kohlhaas, and Dunn. t Next Sunday the Academy will play Daugherty here, and this promises to be one of the best .games so far, for Dau&herty won from Corpus Christi, 'Fort Dodge, and Holy Family, Mason City, losing, however, to Charles City. ; RAINFALL EXCEEDS INCH!

There was HERE'S THE DOPE ON HOW TO MARK ELECTION BALLOT The card of instructions to voters issued by Secretary of state G. C. Greemvalt- carries Information on "straight ticket" voting only and Is ambiguous on the methods of marking combination straight and mixed tickets. County Auditor Bertha E. Johnson calls the attention of voters to the laws on voting. 'Section 811 of the.'election laws provides '. for "straight voting as follows: .. ' \ • '..':. "If the names of all the candidates" for whom a voter desires to vote appear, upon . the same ticket, and he desires to vote for all .the candidates whose names appear upon, such ticket, he may do so in any one of the following ways: •'.-•-••. "1.'He may place a cross in ,the circle at the top of such ticket without making a cross in any square beneath said circle. "2. He may place a cross in the square opposite the name of each, such candidate without making a cross in the circle at the top of such ticket. . .'..'.' "3. He may place a cross In the circle at the top of such ticket, and a'so a cross in any or all of the squares beneath said circle." The instructions for vltlng a mixed ticket include the use of the circle, if the voter wishes to vote for practically all on one ticket but skip to another ticket for one or more choices. Section 814 of the election law provides for mixed voting as follows: "If the names of all candidates for whom a voter wishes to vote do not appear upon the same ticket, he may Indicate the candidates of his choice by marking his .ballot In any one ' the following ways: "1, He may place a cross In the circle at the top of a ticket on which the names of some of the candidates for whom he wishes to vote appear and also a cross in the square opposite the name of each other candidate of his choice whose name appears upon some ticket other than the one In'which he has marked., the circle at the top, "2. He may place a cross In the square opposite the name of each candidate for whom he desires to vote without placing any cross In any circle." All this means In plain language that if a voter wishes to vote a ORTON GIVEN GLEAN SLATE BY EXAMINER Error in Crediting De posit Cause of Trouble. On Page 6-appears a long state ment from .District Court Clerk Or ton concerning an alleged shortage as of December 31 reported in his office by the state checkers. Many readers may not get the point, which is that all of the supposed shortagi except $76.11 grew, out of the fac that a deposit in the Iowa State t.the afternoon of December 3' was not carried into the bank's December statement covering the clerk's account, but was entered as of January 2, 1932. This was because the bank cuts )ff at .noon, and items received in :he afternoon appear as of the next day. Thus when the checkers asked .he bank for the amount on deposit December 31 there appeared 'to be a arge shortage. Neither Mr. Orton nor the checkers discovered what was the matter till after the checkers' report had been filed. Mr. Horning came back yesterday, and on re-examination filed, an.'additional statement showing a shortage December 31 of only $76.11, and this appears to have been technical only, for when the checkers checked the office up to August 23, 1932, in an effort to find the alleged main shortage they found that Mr. Orton had in the bank all of the money (including the $76:11)'that his books called for. Apparently Mr..

' •*• Hidden Critic is Invited to Identify Self The gentleman who a week ago mailed an unsigned letter criticis- ing the Advance's editorial policy In this campaign and enclosed part of a letter evidently written by Henry 'A. Wallace is advised that the Advance/ in accordance with long-established general newspaper custom, does not publish anonymous communications. If the gentleman will rewrite his criticism and sign it, it will be published with his name attached but without answer. People who write letters of criticism should have the courage to let themselves • be known, as editors have to do. Then let the public, knowing both, judge between editor and critic. The communication, with a letter to the foregoing effect, was sent to Mr. Wallace to be mailed to the gentleman, but Mr. -.Wallace replied that he could not recall who the gentleman was or what the editorial comment objected to was about.

" ..-'• .".,-- :•.... I ,feel • that this -, flatter attitude houldt be'the one the voters take as egards Senator Patterson. ,. ' , I doubt that a.public servant has ver been elected who has made a reater effort to serve his people ban Mr.- Patterson has done. When e was sent to represent Kossuth n the house , of representatves at I >es Moines he took his job seriously, nd immediately.set about making a :udy of the problems- confronting he people of Iowa. The result o: is study was the outlining of a def- nlte program which he" believed, it nacted into law', would bring about measure of relief from our ever- .ounttng tax burdens. Senator Patterson started out al- iOst'lonehanded on a tax relief program. Sentiment was then strongly opposed' to him,' but he consistently hammered away on his program and won supporters one by one, till today public sentiment demands the same tax relief program which It opposed a few years ago.. This is a year when voters are going to do ;much pruning ; of the political tree. Dead wood and sap suckers must be cut away. Now'pruning is a:fine thing, out the pruner musl use care not to, let the aix slip and cut fruit-bearing branches. While our national election is important, we must remember that most of our tax relief is going to come out of local government, which is", largely controlled by the legislature. In behalf of Senator Patterson I take this opportunity to ask all voters, regardless of party, to consider ,hls record .of past service to the people of: this dstlrct and the state : of Iowa, I believe that a review of that record will convince most thinking people that Senator Patterson .is entitled to their'support on November 8. Lawrence Ross, Charles City, was bound to the grand jury last Thursday by Justice Winkel on a charge or breaking and entering the Kohlhaas hardware store the night of October 16 with intent to' rob. Ross entered a plea of not guilty, but Shelf f Hovey had found Winchester and Springfield .guns, and a arge number of shells, Including shotgun shells, .22 calibre shells, and -wo boxes of .38 revolver cartridges, n his possession, and the goods vere traced to the Kohlhaas store. Ross was brought here from •harles City last week Wednesday by Mr. Hovey and Marshal • Green vho .had gone there on a report that Charles City police had him under suspicion as a burglar because he was offering for sale guns of the description reported stolen here. The guns found there were identified by Mr. Kohlhaas. Verle .Schmidt,- Algona, who gave his age as 14, was also held, but he was released In the custody of his mother till the November term of the 'district court, when his case will be taken up in juvenile court: The boys are cousins.
