Bureau, and local leaders selected an agricultural credit council for Kossuith county and discussed means 'by which It could work out a program to prevent farm mortgage foreclosures where the mortgagors indicate determination to do all they can to meet obligations. The council named includes H J Bode and John Frankl, Algona farmers, Edw. Droessler, Bancroft farmer; R. H. Miller, president of the Iowa State bank, Algona; and L. E. Linnan, Algona attorney. The council will cooperate with a state council composed of Chas. E.

N. Darling, of the Register & Tribune; George Schlenker, president of the Polk county (Farm Bureau; R. K. Bliss, director of extension, Iowa State college; Edw.

His talk centered around organization of the association and its gradual growth. The Iowa state brand for butter was established by state law in 1915, and creameries using the brand must conform to certain requirements-of quality. / At present there are 48 creameries In the organization, all in the north central section of Iowa, within 100 miles of -Mason City. More than 15 million pounds of butter are now marketed 'by the organization. Mr. ; PICTURE PBESBNTS Mr. Jenks in a charcterlstic pose.

At Pittsburgh, Pa., for example, it is sold in. bulk from large tubs, while for' other sections of the east the butter must be-furnished in rolls. State law establishes and guarantees the quality of Iowa-State Brand butter, and this guarantee Is used in advertisements. Iowa state brand butter is considered among the best •sold in the east. POLLS TO OPEN AT 8 A, M, . AND WILL CLOSE AT 8 P, M, Tn the sheriff's election proclamation as published last week in the. Advance, the Upper Des Moines-Republican, and the Bancroft Register there was a mistake In the designation of hours during which the polls will be open on election day next Tuesday. The hours as given were 8 a. m. to 7 p. m., whereas the hours prescribed by law are 8 a. in. to 8 p. m. The U, D. M.-R. is republishing officially this week to correct the error.- Mr. Diamond has 1 ' been a leading state figure 'in democratic circles many years, though he has never held office. If B has attended three national conventions,-, and he ls< a student of governmental affairs.' -In his own business he is noted as i a trial lawyer. Mr. Diamond has spent practically all his life-in northwest-Iowa, according to Mr. Murtagh, and has had much experience'/with clients'^ in agricultural difficulties'. He Is deeply Interested. in -. the' agricultural question. " . ' Mr. Murtagh invites all voters,,no matter what their party affiliation may be, to attend the meeting. The county democratic organization has been busy this year. Political meetings 'have been sponsored in other Kossuth towns. Last night Mrs. Thornton Brown, Missouri woman sent out by the democratic national committee, spoke at the courthouse. The democrats have a full ticket this year, except that there is no opposition to the reelection of. F. C. Davidson, republican, as -district court judge. All democratic candidates are boosting the democratic state and national tickets as well as for themselves. ANNIVERSARY IS RECALLED BY TELEGRAM Evanston, 111., Nov. 1. W. C. Dewel, Algona— Heartiest congratulations, best wishes for continued success as you begin 25th year as editor and publisher of Advance. • BURL. [This surprise message is from the. editor's second, son, Dr. B. 'F. Dewel, dentist practicing orthodontia at EvanstonJ RECORD MADE BY GILGHRIST FINmAVOR District is Expected to Return Him to Congress. Congressman Fred C. Gilchrist, of 'Laurent, accompanied by J, p. Mullen, iFonda, and the latter's son Edward, spent Monday % night here. They arrived late in the afternoon and went on to Burt for a call on 'Senator Patterson, with whom Mr. Gilchrist was closely associated in the state senate two years ago. Mr. Gilchrist said he had been touring the south end of the eighth district and now planned to spend a week in the north end. He made a few brief calls on Algona friends Tuesday morning. Though there is republican discord In the district on president and senator, with minor dissatisfaction on governor, Mr. Gilchrist seems to be sailing a fairly untroubled sea. His record In both the legislature and congress have been such as to earn for him the confidence of the district. In the state senate he played an important part in laying the groundwork for the program which Governor Turner is now bringing to fruition. Power Goes to Old Timers. •When Mr. Gilchrist served In the Iowa house : he was one of 108 members, and when he served in the senate he was one of 50 members. He has found the change to the house at Washington, where he Is one of 450 members, somewhat disconcert- ng. It takes long-years of service to rise to leadership there, and districts which change congressmen frequently find.that their representatives, cut little figure. -On..the contrary, districts' which stick -to the same onan see him rise gradually till he becomes a real power. Mr. Gdl- christ does not urge this fact as a ; •reason for Wis'reelection, but merely •remarks upon it as something that always must be taken into account. Nevertheless a new congressman can always vote, and by his votes he makes .the record on which his peo- High School Pupils Vote Own Ballots Pupils In the high school and tlio junior high school, that Is, In the seventh to llth grades Inclu- slve, will hold their own election with real ballots next Monday. The ballots will be Just like the official "ballots except that township tickets will be loft blank. Supt. Overmyer had not yet decided how the ballots would be cast, when this mention was written. He was, however, considering- plans to hare booths, election judges, clerks, and ev- orytlilng 1 , Just as In a regular election. The object Is to give the pnplls practical experience In voting 1 . In order that county candidates may have no reason to complain, the results of the straw election as concerns them will not be given out till next Wednesday morning, after Hie real election has been held. , and to oz *«*tees.

The arrival of police saved him from further trouble. The thugs got no money. Only Seven Cars Sold. Only seven new automobiles were sold to Kossuth Jn October. This totals fewer than 175 new cars to the county so far this year. Four of the October cars were Chevrolets, one a Btord, one an OWsmobile, and one a South.

It you want to ^scratch your ticket," put a cross in the circle at the top of the party column to which you are giving most of your support, Then go over to the other column or columns and put crosses In the SQUARES to the left of the candidates for whom you want to vote. Such a ticket counts for all, the candidates under the circle where you put your cross, except candidates in the other column before whose names you put crosses. 3. Remember, It Is easy to mark a ballot If you nse your head after yon get into the voj> liig> booth. 4. Don't sign your name to the ballot or put any Identification mark on it. 6, Don't erase any marjf you make on your ballot. If you spoil your ballot, give It back to the olectlon Judges, nd they wfll give you another* If you spoU that they vfl) gto« yon f one. HALLOWEEN PASSES WITH NO REAL DAMAGE Halloween damage Monday night (vas light, according to the local po- ice. A few pranks were played 'by 'ounesters, such as the removal of stop signs, main highway markers, and like things, which are punishable by law. But in the main noth- ng of a serious nature occurred. The most reprehensible was break- ng down the.gates of Athletic-park and the goal posts on the football ield. _.'..'. The usual displacement of steps, ars, trailers, and other . movable roperty was carried out, but.reooy- ry of almost everything was .made 'uesday. • A number of manhole covers were removed during 1 tfte night, but offfl- cej-s warned the pranksters of the danger that someone might be -badly hurt by falling,into them, "and they were mostly replaced by the boys. pie ban jijidge him. In this respect It Is pretty generally agreed that Mr. Gilchrist has already achieved a record which meets the views of a decided majority of his constituents, Votes to Protect Small Incomes. Mr. Gilchrist voted for higher income taxes Instead -of burdensome taxes on middle-class people: for progressive estate taxes on great fortunes, exempting the ordinary run of estates; against tax-exempt securities which make for high taxes on common people who can't afford to own bonds; against the sales tax, which would have let the rich off and burdened the less able. Speaker Garner's "pork barrel bill" for a postoffice at every crossroads did not get Mr. Gilchrist's support; he also voted against the revenue bill, which would have laid an unfair-burden on common folks; against stamps on farm deeds and on bank checks; against the federal gas tax; against the increase in first-class postage. Mr. Gdlchrist also .Voted against cancellation of war debts; against •the ai>use of -labor injunctions; against unfair "yellow .dog" contracts which tie the laboring man's hands; for public salary reductions •except small salaries which provide only a living; for reduction of hi? own salary and that of other con- SMOLDERING GOAL IN HIGH SCHOOL BINS DISCOVERED Spontaneous combustion in stored coal at .the new high school building set a slow fire which was discovered Monday. Seepage following recent rains had penetrated into the coal bins. Traces of coal gas were noticed in the building Monday, and school authorities tracked.the odor to the coal bins. There was no smoke, but the coal was .burning like peat, and Hie floor, of the coal bin was warm The same day and Tuesday evening coal was removed to permit thorough Investigation, and the fire extinguished. It was found that a storm sb,,^ m the neighborhood of the building had become clogged and was not carrying off all the water. The overflow, backed up and seeped into the basement. SJack coal in large amounts is subject to spontaneous combustion if.wet. The fire in the coal never reached the stage of giving off smoke ALGONA TEAMS BREAK EVEN IN THREEJJAMES Independents Win as Academy Ties; H. S. Loses. Algona's three football teams broke even last week-end, the Independents winning, the Academy tying, and the high school team los- ng a hard-fought battle metsburg. at Em- mean- team burning with a flame. Consequently it was not noticed till the odor had become strong enough to ,be detected. A new 12-inch storm sewer is now being laid in the street past the schoolhouse block on the nor.th to prevent recurrence of flooding. There was no- damage to the building. In fact fire could do little damage anywhere to the hew schoolhouse beyond woodwork in a few spots, and fixtures. The structure is .built of cement or stone, and steel was mostly used for casings, etc Most of the floors are of concrete/ though some are of hard wood laid on concrete. 6IRL HURT IN CRASH; SEXTON MAN IS HELD Joe Praser.

At that the local team was filled with substitutions which it was believed .vould weaken the team to a losing point. Oh the kick-off this belief was strengthened, for the Suther- and receiver ran 85 yards for that eam's only touchdown. The Algontons then got down to usiness and scored twice vhile holding the Sutherland ram scoring. At Emmetsburg the high school earn lost Saturday, when a blocked punt was recovered for a touchdown by the Emmetsburgers The locals, however, outgained the Irish consistently, only losing the ball on downs Inside scoring distance on two occasions, and holding the Emmetsburg team off the local goal except when the punt was blocked JThe high school team is now showing marked improvement under the steady, careful coaching of Kenneth Mercer. A jinx on the Al- gonians inside their opponent*!' 10- yard lines has thus far prevented' several scores. The local schedule has so far been one of the hardest that any team in the north half of the state has had to contend with. This week the high school meets Clarion, there, .and the- next home game will be on Armistice day, when' the locals will meet Fort Dodge.

Action, towards consolidation • of government bureaus to eliminate useless expense got Mr. Gilchrist's support! He also voted for the.re- tirement of 2,000 useless army and navy officers.; He supported a bill for an international conference to bring about limitation of arms; also a bill for an international monetary conference to study means to restore the purchasing power of the world. •Mr. Gilchrist has also favored distribution of government-owned grain and cotton among the needy during this depression. With other Iowa congressmen he voted for payment of the soldiers' bonus, and he was favorably disposed towards the Goldsborough bill proposed by H. 'A. Wallace and other economists to direct the Federal Reserve to do what lies in Its power to govern the price situation in aid of farmers and other distressed producers. All this "listens good" to voters of the Eighth district regardless of party and explains why m the present tendency towards revolt of voters against the "dns" Mr. Gdlchrlst Is not affected. F.

The Algona safety man was drawn up Into'the fracas, but he halfback broke into the clear for a long run and the score. A kick made the extra point. St. Cecelia's took the ball on Its 5-yd: line on the kick-off, and made 3 yards in three ifilrst downs in nine 'lays, which put the ball on the 2- f&. line for first down.
