Th« Algoa* ttpptr BM Httott, Altfito, Io»>, Krt. 10, BULLDOGS LOSE THIRD GAME OF SEASON WITH 6-0 Spencer Piles on Jinx here Friday Night; Algonfi Made Threat in the Fourth Quarter For the third time this year a fighting Algona football team lost by a one touchdown margin, 6-0, on the local field Friday night. During the first half Algona held a powerful Spencer outfit to two first downs. Then little Bob Underwood cut loose with some fancy running and Spencer tallied the winning score. The first half WHS mostly a kicking duel with Spencer getting the jump on Algona and keeping them : -n their own territory. In the second half Spencer took the kick-off and in less than three minutes had a touchdown. They scored on a pass from the 25 yard line. The try for the extra point failed. Late in the fourth quarter Algona made their only real threat of the game. Lashbrook made twenty yards around end and was going for a touchdown when for some reason or other he turned right into two Spencer tackles. Dick SkMling circled end for a 13- yard gain and would have been away had one 'block been administered to a Spencer tackier. The Bulldog attack then bogged down on the Spencer 5 yard line where they took the ball as the game ended. Tomorrow the Bulldogs meet the Wildcats of Humboldt in the local's homecoming game. Humboldt has a better team on paper but anything can happen in a football game. SEXTON NEWS Mrs. August Kirschbaum attended the shower for Mrs. Brandow in Algona Friday.

He U As the first year following our entry into World War II draws to a close, we, as a nation, pause to observe Armistice Day. Twenty-four years ago the signing of the Armistice brought to a close World War I, and we hoped that Peace would be a permanent and lasting thing. We had come thro.ugh the Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War, the Spanish American, the Mexican Border War and a World War, We. looked back upon the many wars of Europe, Africa and Asia. We had signed an Armistice and presumed the War to End War was over. ,-••'.. But the Armistice was only as good as its name, a brief cessation of arms, by convention; a temporary suspension of hostilities, by agreement; a truce, And before many years there was war again. Despite the fact that of us tried to believe we could not become a party to it, we found ourselves involved in the greatest war the world has ever known. ! Today the cause of liberty, freedom, and democracy lo^ks brighter on the various fronts than it has since -the war started. It has been a cfeirk picture, But aa things take a turrj for the better, let us pause on Armistice Day to renew our Faith w Ood, and| never doubt that there will be Peace—and an everlastinf Peace, not a^Qlhej Armistice. .
