A Scream In Mayor Frank Kohlhaas court Tuesday night Elmer Lein, farmer living near Leland, Iowa, pleaded guilty to a charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and he Was fined $25 and costs or 15 days in the county jail by the mayor. Lein chose the latter and is now a boarder of the county. According to evidence presented at the hearing in the mayor's court Tuesday night Lein took two girls for an automobile ride a week ago Saturday. Two Girls Meet It seems -that the two girls are paroled from the state school for girls at Mitchellville. One of them, Bonnie Hedrickson, 17, was paroled to Mr. and Mrs. Henry Eischeid several months ago. She has proved capable in her work and led a good exemplary life in the Eischeid home. The other, Lillian Grey, 19, was paroled to Mrs. Katherine Thilges, Riverdale township, only a week or so since. It seems that a week ago Saturday the two girls happened to meet in Algona. They talked over, old times. Then came Romeo. Go For A Ride About that time, according to evidence, Elmer Lein, : farmer of near Leland, Iowa, happened along. He had been a former employee of the Eischeids and Miss Hedrickson remembered him and a conversation was started up. Shortly it was decided that tho two girls would like to have a ride in Lein's car and to this he was perfectly agreeable. No details were brought out as to where the trio spent the evening, but it was shown that Lein brought the Heanckson girl to the Eischeid farm about 10:30. Then, according to his story, he came to Algona and he stopped and let the Grey girl out in front of the Smoke Shop about 11 o'clock. She Would Leave Thilges' It developed at the hearing that Miss Grey had made several remarks about being dissatisfied in the Thilges home and that she wanted to go to Sioux City. At any rate up to the present time there has been no trace found of her. It is not known whether or not she caught a ride to Sioux City or in what direction she traveled. In this regard Lem claims absolute ignorance. Sheriff Picks Up Lein Sheriff Art Cogley, being asked as to who had filed charges against Lein, said that he had driven to Leland and picked up the prisoner on his own initiative, largely because he had wanted some information concerning some law violations which he felt Lein possessed. Having learned of Lein's activities in the previous Saturday night gave him an excellent reason for arresting the man. Lein Married Man Elmer Lein, former farm worker in Kossuth county, now has a job farming near Leland, Iowa. This is a small town of 235 inhabitants about 7 miles northeast of Forest City. Lein admits that he is a married man. He gave no reason for being at least 50 miles from home nor the nature of the business which might have brought him to Algona. However, he did admit that he erred in -entertaining two young girls and one of them a minor. And while appearances indicated that he had merely given the girls a ride, cross examination conducted by County Attorney H. W. Miller, indicated that his stoi-y didn't hang together too well in some in T Now It's The Auto Use Tax Stamp Starting on June 10th the Auto Use Tax Stamp will be .on sale at the post office in your local town. Each stamp will be $5 and must be at^ tached to your car or truck windshield before July 31. If you wait until after that date there will be a penalty attached. And eyery passenger car, truck or motorcycle must have one of the stamps. Kossuth county, according to the treasurer's office issued last year 7,260 passenger car licenses. 1,223 for trucks and 46 for motorcycles. This is a total of 8,529 and at $5 each this county contributes $42,645 in auto use taxes to the federal government. In the state, with nearly 2,000,000 vehicles, the revenue will reach nearly $10,000,000. « SCOUT LEADER TO MEET WITH LOCAL WORKERS FRIDAY «-v6^Mid tuu weij. in sume in- *-i i • i T» • «*»i stances, hence the charge of con- Gel . wlcks > Regional Execu- 4-**il~in4i« w A— J.1 _»_*•_'___ _ TH7A AA/lll l*io*t*1C'C< k-'lr»**r< VOL, 72—nd: tributing to the delinquency of a minor. Following the presentations an insistent hammering on the door was heard and when opened in walked Hitler and -one of his stooges.

This skit proved Hilariously funny. Her'r Hitler was played by "Stew" Ross, and lis stooge was represented by Max Robinson, both of them Des Moines boys.

Following the check-up on violations when the highway patrolmen and city officers stopped many cars last Wednesday night the : office of the justice took care of some of the cases the next day.

Donald Bonnet, Algona, drove with defective lights and this cost him $1 arid'costs. Paul C, Olson, Lone Rock, contributed $1 "arid costs because the brakes iri his. car were defective. Milo Rentz, Algona, drove a car with defective brakes and he also was fined $1 and costs. Wm. J. Combs, of Bode, pleaded guilty to driving with defective brakes and was fined $1 and costs. Frank Webber, of Corwith, parked his car on highway 18 cans." Throughout his { discourse near the Selzer cafe and Patrol- he interspersed his remarks with illustrative stories of the different humor complexes of .various countries and nationalities. He is a perfect mimic of other countries' characters and his listeners were thrown into continued responsive and hearty laughter. Mr. Wein- rott is a producer and ^writer of radio programs, having to his credit such well-known radio stories,as "Meet Mr. Meek" "Jack Armstrong," • and "Stepmother." Surely the Jaycees couldn't have provided better entertainment had they spent hundreds •. of dollars for it. \_. , . ' ' Dancing ' Following this very'high class and entertaining program the members and guests enjoyed dancing until midnight. The outgoing officers are Craig Smith, president; Harold Brandt and Wendell Jensen and secretary-treasurer, -ics Kenyon. ••- * ; ' Corwith Boy In Africa According to word received ,by Mr, and Mrs. Math Bauragartner, of Corwith, their son, Cpl.

Gelwicks, former scout executive at Madison, Wis., will discuss plans for a unified city-wide scouting program. -This new program is to be developed so that more boys may have an opportunity to join the cubbing and scouting 'activities in Algona. A city chairman and officers will be .selected and they will work with the Kossuth county organization. Scouting has grown to a point in Algona where such a plan must get under way in order to •serve the many boys now-particir'siing. in the cubbing ScMting'-^ariar senior* sWrting phases of the program.

At that time there were three items on the rationing list, tires, automobiles and sugar. Today the board has a membership of nineteen and a chief clerk arid seven recording clerks have been, added to the set-up. Along with this, too, twelve student volun- • teers are putting in 7 hours each, per week. And with all of this- help the processing of' applications and the general 1 business' of the board continues in huge proportions. For Further Efficiency A meeting of the full member* ship of the board was held last Thursday night at which. time Henning E. Larson, of the Des Moines office, a local board representative; set up a program for further efficient and tinie-saving handling of the multitudinous' questions which pile into., the board's office daily. Five panels were selected, each to handle the rationing of gasoline, tires, fuel oil and stoves, food, and prices. With a membership of three on each of these panels and each member to give four hours 'per week the processing and cheuk-"" ing of the thousands of applications will be the better and more efficiently covered. It must be" remembered that In the matter at sugar rationing alone there, are over 26,000 contacts. ' Work More Than Tripled; Since the early days of the O!PA when only three items were-,! rationed there are now, thirteen, tires, autos, sugar, pric,e ceiling, « gas, fuel oil, rubber footwear,'W-' cycles, typewriters, shoes, pro-^ cessed foods, meats and " ' ''*'' , .
