ffl BASKETEERS LOSE FIRST GAME TO HUMBOLDT FIVE Coach * Nelson's Bunch Shows Promise of De , Vetoping into a (Stop.d Quint. Lost by 63-19 Judging from the looks .of the first string of Coach M. C. .Nelson's high school basketeers In .their first session of the season Friday night the local string should make a .good showing against Us competi- 'tort.thia winter. They, played-•the HiMnboldt'aggregation and the< latter showed better t'dam work and tame experience than our boys, yet Algona was within two points, 1917 in the last of the third quarter and the score was 23-19 for Humboldt at the finish. Our Boys Over Eager The first quarter didn't look so bad for our.side .when Humboldt clipped us 9-2. This. was largely, because the locals were to eager in the plays, many times losing the " 'ball, Or missing a pass to pass play; They came back in the second much cooled 'off' and took 12 counts while Humboldt took eight. The , rest of the game showed continued Improvement on the part of the home boys and there is. much pro- nilse for a good bunch before the season ends. Hardgrove, forward for . the locals probably played the most consistent basketball throughout ' the game but there is good material With outstanding prospects for good work 'n the coming season. Tww Last Year Mien : rt^Obafcbf'Neteon has only two last yiyedr first team men, Wallukait and FrHoldren, on this year's team. The ' bfclanccV howevecf, are all, Uettor men. Humboldt showed up • with three past year's players, and that school had a fast tbam during the last . season. . However, bur boys showed' up fine in the three quarters though Humboldot showed the better team work.

'Next Monday night for twenty minutes, between 10:00 and 10:20 o'clock, Kossuth county will experience Its first blackout. Under direc- t'on of Fred Timm. county commander, and with the cooperation of the niayors In the various towns In Kossuth, plans for making the blackout successful have been mado and the cooperation- of air raid wardens, auxiliary police and firemen is assured throughout tho county. The blackout is ordered by the Commander of the Seventh Army Service Command and '« to cover all of Iowa. While it is generally believed that this section will not be touched by bombers, the reason for the blackout is to serve as a preventive for enemy bombers lo use towns and cities as guides. For instance,.';* 'is believed that this country will eventually be bombed, that the enemy aircraft will enter by way of Canada, that their objectives would be Sioux City, Ankeny and Burlington defense plants, and with every town and city standing out brightly they at once become a guide, for the planes. Hence the" necessity of blackouts. County Civilian Defense Corps Arrangements for blackouts, instructions and details, are under direction of the county civilian defense" "corps and covers,, all of the county. The corps has set "up" cer- ain rules Which must be observed during the blackout. Ordinances in the various towns provide for penalties where those rules are violated. People In the rural sections are also urged to observe those regulations. Put Out Every Light When the blackout alarm is given every light In a home, store or business place, must be turned off. No main switches on town light systems will be pulled herrce people must put out every light on their premfses. The signal will be given by fire sirens, police sirens and church bells. Sirens with a rising and lowering pitch, will be operated for' two mtautes, then a two mnute silence and this is followed by another two minutes of signal. The all clear signal will be given by the fire siren with a two-minute period of continuous pitch, itfwo minutes silence and then a repetition. Also Farmers Must Observe Farmers are also to follow the rules as to turnnig out the lights and may be guided as to time by radio or by noting neighboring town lights out. And cars on the highways must stop and park off the highway, shutting off the Ir'ghts and waiting the all clear signal by observing neighoring; farm or town lights coming on again. Stay Where You Are Upon the alarm signal be'.ng given motorists in towns must pull up to the curb and turn out the lights. Pedestrians must enter the nearest 'house and remain for the period, no person may be" In the'streets during the blackout. Air raid wardens, the police, and the auxiliary police wMl patrol assigned districts to check up on violations. Rules forbid lighting matches or flashlights or having lighted cigarettes, cigars or pipes or anything that may show the least light while the black-out 'e on. Suggests Blackout Practice Mr. Timm suggests that stores or homes try a practice black-out. Especially such places as where a light must be used that precautions are taken to cover windows or spaces where the least ray of light might pentrate to the outside. And he also suggests that no telephone be used during the blackout, preserving the system, for use of the wardens and axulliary pol.'ce. Air Raid Wardens During a blackout, or air raid, the wardens and the auxiliary police will wear arm bands, servnig as authority identification. During the air raid period these men are duly constituted officers of the law with all police powers. Chief Art (Moulds heads the auxiliary po- Hce force and the fire ch!«f has charge of the auxiliary firemen. In the outside towns the mayor makes these appointments until regular men can qualify. To warrant holding auxiliary powers the arm band wearer must have taken a first aid course and also 13 hours in policing, fire and gas defense. Unincorporated Tpwns In the case of unincorporated towns and communities where no officer' has made appointment -of wardens or auxiiary police the county staff will arrange a set-up, this being in process of formation now. All rules and regulations applying ;« the larger places will hold good in these places. "Lost" Ad Finds His Silver Dollar J. B.

S. army representa- tives'for the sale of the two Diesel engines in .the old ; power house. According to Superintendent Clarence Pollard the engines were sold for $28,200 which' is considered, a .good price, the two power plants having seen service here since 1919 and 1924.
