GENERAL W ElECTBIC Kohlhaas Hardware Bancroft, one weight winner tournament at Des Moines in Llg1itwelglits»Open Show Elwood Davis, 60, and Francis Woodcock, 62, battled to a draw in the opening bout. This was followed by Sonny Reskau and Billy Albert, -both 70, also decided a draw. Monny Black, 62, and Jerry Black, GO, fought next but a blow to the stomach put Jerry out of the battle in the second round. Rodney Johnson and Curtis Johnson, brothers, both 60, stood toe to toe, but Without much punishment be.tfg administered by either and the referee gave the win to Rodney. Davis Boys Go to Town Bobby Davis and Junior Day's, brothers, and both weighing in at 77, put on three rounds which were really a battle royal but the referee decided the bout a draw. In the 110 pound bount following with Bob Winter and Norman Engstrom, the former seemed to have the longer reach and an edge over Engstrom, though the slugging was not at all bad and Winter was gf.ven the decision. Bill Maharas, 142, and Duane Reynolds, 132, perhaps showed the most even class of the show and the bout was won by Reynolds, he having the advantage of reach. Final Bouts Good Weighing in at 105, Gordon Wlrr- kel and Helmus put on a good show. While Helmus won It was nobody's w'.n until the last half minute of battling. John Kajewski, 135, and Phil Reefer, 140, put on the final entertainment and this was perhaps the fastest and certainly the heaviest hitting battle of the show. Both boys drew color and .there were several.floorings and the uppers and rights and lefts really meant punch. Reefer was given the dec'sion and, according to some in the audience, this was not satisfactory. However, the bout completed a good evening's entertainment and it Is regrettable that the house was not filled. Livermore Resident Passes at Iowa City Livermore: William Sweeney, who was taken to the State Hospital at Iowa City Monday morning, passed away Thursday evening.

FitzsimmonH hae moved here from Lawler. He is the' new night clerk at the Algona Hotel. Joe Schaben returned to Algona the first of the week after spending several weeks in New York state with b;« daughters. Martha Platt, daughter of Mrs. Elisabeth Platt, left Monday for Waukegan, 111., where she will be employed. For the past year she has been employed in the county recorder's office. She was accompanied by Helen Gleason who has been employed at the local telephone office. Thn ladles in the Red Cross surg- :'.cal dressing room were justly proud of 'finishing their quota of 30,000 2x2 dressings by Friday at five o'clock, one and November 1. A new quota has already been started and although a large group of ladies have been tireless in their efforts at the rooms, many more workers aro needed. The quota was a large was to be completed by NOW IS THE TIME tO CONTROL, POCKET Pocket gophers present In Kos suth county can -be effectively con trolled as long as the ground Is no frbzen an-d they continue to throw out fresh dirt, although County Extension Director Al L. Browi says that control of the rodents Is best accomplished In October or In AprM. Use of strychnine-poisoned halts seems to do the best and qulckesl job of control. 'Potato, turnip, carrot or parsnip may be used anc should be cut in "French-fry" style—sticks a quarter to a half an Inch square and from an Inch to an inch and a half long. These should be dusted, 'n a paper sack or something similar, in a mixture of one- sixteenth ounce powdered strychnine and one tablespoon flour per measured quart of 'baits. Two or three 6f the baits should be dropped into the gopher run way through a probe hole, then the hole should be pinched shut with your heel. A sharpened broomstick serves as an efficient probe. * * * FARROWING AT INTERVALS WILL HELP PRODUCTION Swine producers have been requested to increase hog production 10 per cent for 1943 over 1942; shortages mean that careful planning must .be followed to get this job done. \ One of the most helpful management practices which could be adopted on many farms would be a staggering of the farrowings. County Extension Director A. L. Brown says that a producer who has comfortable housing facilities for 10 sows and who plans to keep 20 for next spring farrow should breed 10 or 12 of the sows to farrow In late February or early March. To get pigs by March first, sows must be bred by November 10. These pigs then will. 'be comlrrg at a time when field work is not pressing. More time/can be given to the ,plgs In getting them away to a good start. By the time field work is under way these pigs will be large enough to use the self- feeder and care for themselves for the most part. THORWALD NELSON SWEA CITY, IN NEW ZEALAND, HOSP Swea City: Mrs. John S. Nelson received a letter recently informing her that her son, Thorwald, was at the U. S. Navy hospital at Auckland, New Zealand, recovering from a'slight Injury received in the battle at the Solomon Islands. Thorwald, better known here as Kansas, Is a paratrooper with the Mar- .'•ne corps. He is the first of the Swea City lads to be injured in the present war. The letter Mrs. Nelson received was writte"n by a friend of Thorwald, John Duden- ake who wrote from a Navy hospital in San Diego, Calif., where he was recovering from gun shots' which he received 'n the battle of the Solomons. Kansas had given him his mother's address and asked him to write her that he was O. K. The rest of the sows should tie kept for May or early June fat- row. They then cah use the farrowing house or even farrow out on a pasture lit temporary shelters, where they would not demAnci much attention. , , The fall of 1043 will present even greater problems from the standpoint of marketing, If we have this requested big Increase. In swine numbers. Every effort the producer can put forth now In planning a wider distribution of, hlsxfarrow- Ings will result In a more uniform flow of hogs to market. * * * RODENT DAMAGE TO TREKS MAY BE CUT DOWN GREATLY 'Damage to hundreds of Kossuth county fruit trees can .be avoided next winter If steps are taken to control rat)bits and field mice. County Extension Director A. L. Brown, says that one-quarter Inch hardware cloth wrapped around the :runk of the tree and forced Into :he ground- about two Inches Is one of the toest mechanical.'means I Differing from BRUE1LMAN, MINNIE GERBER WED AT WEST BEND West fiend: Kmli Brueilmatt an Mrs. Minnie (krtoer were* united 1 marriage Sun'day afternoon, Octo her 28, In the Apoitollc church 1 the presence dt ft"large number d relatives- and frf-etrds.

Seven pounds of rosin are dis- olved In a gallon of low priced denatured alcohol. Precautions must be taken to "prevent water rom spoiling the solution and to keep it away from heat. The best way to get the rosin dissolved is o shake the mixture in a pall with closed lid. One gallon of solu- ion is enough to treat .between 150 and 200 two year old fruit trees.
