Tuesday, October 16th by the Great Atlantic and Pac'.flc Tea Company at 21 East State street it was announced by C. Fox, general superintendent of the company. This s the former Moe & Sjogren store room which has been refinished and redecorated. Actually "four stores under one roof," this modern type market rep- resnta the latest scientific developments in low-cost distribution of food, Mr. Fox said^ "Self-serv:ce merchandising," he explained, "makes possible the handling of a wider variety of produce, baked goods, dairy products and FOR RENT—2 adjoining rooms irr Haggard & Peterson office building.

At the same time, the larger ales volume and more rapid turn- ver of stock permit greater economy and efficiency of operation." As the latest unit of the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, the new Food Store at Algona symbolizes the progress made by the company since a small, red-front tea store was opened 83 years ago in lower New York City, he pointed out. In its 83 years, A. & P. hns become one of the world's most highly developed food marketing organizations, owning and operating four food factories, seven coffee roasting plants, 38 bakerfes, four salmoir canneries, a fishing fleet and a tea blending- and packing plant, in addition to warehouse and transportation facilities. "The savings made possible through self-service shopp'ng have proved popular with consumers In other areas," he said. "The convenience of self-service marketing, in which the shopper selects many of the items herself, also has proved attractive. Housewives find that they are able to sett their own 'shopping pace' and when they have completed! their purchase^, have a full legible list of expenditures which greatly facilitates household budget keeping." Mr. Fox explained that A. & P. Self-Service Food Stores are operated on the basis of low prices every day of the week, eliminating the necessity for shopping for weekend bargains. This policy permits shoppers to buy when it is .most convenient for them. 'Mr. Fox states that Mr. Swanson, who has been local manager for several years, will manage the new store. The rest of the personnel of this store will be made up of as many other local people as possible. Upset Brings COL.. _ Return* in Guesses James Daltey, AfcoHft/ proved the ftnly guesser out of several hundret who doped out the upset In the Illinois-Minnesota game last Saturday. At that he didn't prove guesser enough to win any of the prizes. Wayne Black, Algona, with the w.'.nnittg percentage of guess- Ing also doped out the furdue and Northwestern upset. Harry Ate- Corkle also had that upset figured out but his figures were not hot enough on the other guesses to win. Gticsscrs Clone There was but one error point difference between Wayne Black With 83 for first and George Meyer, with 84 for second. That's, getting guessing down to a science. Wm. Peck took down third with 84 error points showing hpw close he was to the right figures with other w.'.nners. Fourth prize will be given to two guessers as Mrs. Art Cogley and Harold Martlnek both had 92 error points. On the Mourners Bench Councilman Gene Hutchlns and Sheriff Art Cogley proved the poor est guessers this week and will Lewis Wildln of LuVerne they rat ed the most error points to be al the bottom. They wMl no doubt do better with more practice. This week we had guessers from Bradgate, Ottosen, Lone Rock, Irvington, Webster City, Humboldt, Bode, West Bend and as far east as Cedar Rapids. Participating merchants are Barker's Drug, Kohlhaas Hardware, Barry's Recreation, James Rexall store, Zendefs and Smoke Shop.

The Standings EAGLE GROVE IN 6-0 VICTORY OVER LOCAL HI FRIDAY A scrappy Algona high school eleven was downed by Eagle Grove here Friday night, 6-0. In one of the best nights for football this year the Bulldogs started rolling late in the fourth quarter and reeled off three first downs before a fumble on the one-yard line stopped the only real threat of the game. / In the first quarter it was mostly a punting duel although Eagle .—^ B Aeriftl Atttek Iti the 'second half the Bulldogs aerial' Attack swung Into action as the ebhsblflattoft of DeWey Skllling to Colberg clicked twice lot long gains late In the fourtH' quarter Those passes and several running plays put the ball oh the Eagle (Wove 17-yard l.'.ne. Dick SklllLig then romped through a hole in the line to the i-yard line where he fumbled and Sagle Grove recovered to end.the threat. Earlier In the half flagle Gfove drove to a touchdown But missed the point 1 after the counter. A Sensational Play Probably the most sensational play of the, game was In the first half when Stevens, running at full speed, leaped high. In the air to spear the ball out of the hands of :\vo W6uld-be receivers from Eagle 3rove in a marvelous .'flterception. The statistics show the Bulldogs mvlng seven first downs to six for Eagle Grove. Algona also gained 108 yards from scrimmage In 32 :ries for an average of over three yards per try. Stevens had the best record with 24 yards in four tries. Next week the Bulldogs play Hampton In another home game. Hampton suffered a 32-7 defeat it the hands of Webster City so the game here should 'be a thriller.
