George has served as field executive in the Pra'.rie Gold Area Boy Scout Council and has made his headqaurters in the Kossuth district. We of the Kossuth District Council feel that he has given loyal, efficient an-d successful service to the cause of scouting dur'.ng this period. It has been a pioneering period—a period when scouting was being introduced for the first time, or after a lapse ol year's, in much of the area. Such a task has required organizationa ability, tact, the aibil'ty to surmount discouraging obstacles and above all, hard patient work. Mr. George has exemplified all of these qualities-in generous measure. For the 'past 15 months the Prairie Gold Area Council has lead the entire middle west fri membership growth Mr.-George has had a real part in making it possible for the area to attain this record. "The Kossuth District Council keenly regrets that we are to lose the services of Mr. George, but is happy that he Is to have the opportunity to work in a larger field of servf-ce at St. Joseph. Missouri We want him to know that we have deeply appreciated his work here and that we wish him every success in his new field."

Esther Lavrenz Now Working in Wisconsin Miss Esther Lavrenz, daughter of Mrs. Henry Lavrenz, city, is now employed in Wisconsin Rapids, Wls as employment manager for the Ahdawagam Paper Products Co Miss Lavrenz became an employee of this firm October 19 and has charge of the hifing and transfer of the employees in the plant proper.

Employment Service for a number of years, .haying-worke< at-'Algona and at .Des Moines. 2,000 POUNDS OF CARP TAKEN FROM SOFT WATER POND Fifty Northern Pike and 12 Bushels Small Fry Game Fish Saved for River Saturday * Fritz Pierce, local game warden, with the help of Several members of the local conservation league and two men and equipment from the state headquarters, dragged the so-called soft water pond just south of town Saturday afternoon to save what fish had remained in there since the lack of water prevented them from getting back into the river. These fish had found their way into the pond during the early year high stages of the river. A Ton of Fish The pond was dragged just onne with a 300 foot net. "~-Out of the catch were taken over a ton ot carp. These were brought to shoj'e and most of them were taken- up by" Algona people, the balance distributed to farmers who use them for live stock feed. Mr. Pierce sa : -d that fifty northern pike were taken, one of which weighed almost n'.ne pounds. Twelve bushels of small game fish were taken, perch and bullheads about 12,000 of the latter estimated. A few large mouth bass were also found. This is tho first fall this spec.'cs has been found in the bayous and reflects that this variety placed in the river three years ago is on the increase. Fish to North River The catch of game fish were placed in the r.'.ver north of the Plum Creek dam because conservation men were afraid of the low waters in this neighborhood freezing and killing them. It will be remembered that three years ago there were thousands of game fish killledl '.n the river near Algona because of low water and the sewage disposal from the city. Further rescue work is contemplated by Mr. Pierce and the state men south of here within the nexi week if weather permits. 'r™r ' Titonka Soldier is Promoted to Corporal Jack Uhlenhake, Whittemore Boy, Knows His Football; Takes First The Minnesota game with Michigan proved the bad luck game for the majority of the guessers in the football guesstog contest Saturday. It begins to look like Minnesota was a hoodoo to the guessers. Jack Uhlenhake, of Whittemore on a Dan Engesser card, had the best score of the hundreds turned in Saturday noon. He set out the right teams as .winners on the card and his error points reached 74. On a Smoke Shop card, Ted Vera, Algona, was second with but one game guessed wrong and his error points amounted to 82. On a' Barry's Recreation card George Crouqh, Algona, figured the scores to take third tout C. W. Nlcoulln on a Smoke Shop card, also figured the scores about right and he t.'ed with Crouch for third with 87 error points. Clyde Ridenour Fourth On a Zander's card Clyde Ridenour, Algona, worked out scores to get him fourth place and he was only one error point above the two •who tied for third, 88. And Julian gjQhrischilles came in for fifth prtze again this week, on a Barry's Recreation card. This is the third time tine Chrischillcs, name -has pulled down a prize. Those boys sure know how to guess their football scores. At that Cletus Koppen, Whittemore, on a Dan Engesser card was within one point of the Chrischillcs guess. Some Awful Guessing Several cards came in upon which there was some terrible guessing, mostly because of the Minnesota score and scores ^running so h?.gh, Buena Vista at Dubuque, for in. stance turning in 46 to 0 in favor of the latter and four of the winning teams having scores in the 20's. . Donald Will, Lewis Gilbride and Mrs. -D. S. Hutch'son, for instance, all had perfect \Viirming score cards, but their error points all ran above the 100 mark. And when the teams run away with big score there is nothing that can be done but set the'guessing out as awful. There were more than 50 cards turned in where nine of the ten games had been guessed correctly as to winners, but big scores raised error po'nts so easily and many of the guessers lost out because of 'being too generous with their favorites. October Finishes With Regular Chill When the radio announced Saturday that there was a cold wave on the way with 15 as low there was a, rush to -garages and service stations for anti-freezing fluid. And the, weatherman- made good his promise, though a day later, when he gave us IS Monday morning. Accord* Jng to Harry Nolle, weathermen, October to going out on the colder order. The average temperature for the week was 40.3 but the normal should have been 49-7, *Vnd October has been an unusual month for temperature with the avt 10 degrees above normal up tQ day. The record: Truck Owners Must Make Application Those of the truck owners in Kossuth who have not as yet received their application for Certificate of War Necessity should immediately contact the flfiice of Defense Transportation at Mason City, according to County Chairman Bob Loss, All applications must be filled out and in the hands of the defense transportation office before November 15th.

NATIONAL, STATE, COUNTYTICKETS TO BE VOTED UPON Polls in Kossuth Open at 8 A. M. and Close at 8 P. M.; Contests Are Few This Year -Next Tuesday at 8 o'clock In the morning voters will start the trek to the polls to cast the!* vote for national, state and county officers. [t Is generally agreed that the vote ;his year will be comparatively light. The farmer is busy with his bean and corn harvesting and then, too, there are thousands of younfc voters in the service, many of whont would have cast their first vot«f. The campaign has been rather list-less and if that is an indication tlte vote will be light. j Contests in County Few Compared with former years the contests in the county are few thifti year. Perhaps the most interesting of these Is that'"t»r Petel- -Kfeifcenv- republican, present-.county supervisor- In the 6th • district, who, la running on the Independent ticket In competition with MyrbjB S. Johnson, republican and Franfr Bauer, democrat, J>oth of Swea Cite. Mr. Helken is serving his third term as - supervisorT \ County Candidates Quiet S In- the line-up of county candidates no fights of any consequence have developed. The candidates of both parties have made personal campaigns, quiet and, eventless, in no case has there, been the usual battle for votes. The office of county treasurer - has no candidate on the democratic ticket and- the office of county auditor has no candidate on the -republican ticket. Some TJownshlp Competition , (Four offices in as many townships have contests this year. In Greenwood township there are t\vo candidates for trustee, George Nyman, republican, and.'A. J.

Threo Justices hi Algona While there are two candidates entitled to a place on the 1 ticket in each party In this city the democrats nominated but one on their ticket, Chas. Ostwinkle, present-justice. .On the republican .ticket two .are, l*i the running, Delia Welter, .prpscnt incumbent, and J. B. Johnston. First and Third Supervisors; '' The fight for supervisors in th,e First and Third districts has rather arisen from campaigns of former years. In the,. First, John .Froser,, democrat; present chairman of the, board, of Rlverdale 'tbwnshlp, Is J>pr' posed by F. K. Clapsaddle, republican of Lu Verne township. It Js> Mr. Clapsaddle's first attempt to hold public office. .Jn the Third district W., S. Cosgrove, democrat, present member, Is 'being-opposed by W, A. Schram, repuW.'can.
