Whoever tells such a story is knifing his own country in the back, as well as the soldiers who are fighting for them. War Bonds will always be good for cash, and if they are not good, then nothing will have any value. They are the ideal place to put money for the things you can't buy now, but you will need to replace after the war. : War Bpnds will bring you a return on your money.

Private Don Ramus, LuVerne Soldier, In North" Africa Area 'LET'S PUSH'EM BACK'IS WAR BOND SLOGAN THIS WEEK Algona Plans Band Concert and Parade Saturday Afternoon to Stimulate Sales; Quota Short. By Gene Murtagh, Chairman . "Back the boys at Salerno! Let's push the Germans back!" That is the war cry this Friday arid Saturday for the Third War Loan iu the state of Iowa. Many boys from Kossuth county are members of the Fifth army now bitterly fighting the Germans near Salerno. We will not know for some time how many are giving their lives, or an arm or a leg. Those boys are in there fighting for you. . ] SHANGRA-LA WAR STAMP SALE SHORT BY HALF IN COUNTY Swea City Tops Eleven of County's Towns With $1360; Algona Turned Ii $7,042 During Month's Campaign. The war stamp sales drive sponsored by the retailers, theatres and carrier boys during the month of July fell short about half of the quota assigned to Kossuth county. Known as the Shangri-La drive and being confined to the sale of war stamps only, the committee feels that the effort to meet the quota was not all in vain. I is true that many people do not care to buy stamps, that they buy war bonds in preference, hence when $13,463 worth of stamps are sold in a month it must be admitted that is a lot of stamps. Then, too, the drive con- .acted many youngsters, many folks of lesser incomes, and that •esulted in just this much addi- ional stamp sales being added to teneral sales of war stamps and bonds. Standings of Towns. While Algona led in the sales it must be remembered that the committee here had more opportunity to contact buyers, especially on Saturdays and evenings during trade periods. Swea City led in the stamp sales over the other towns in the county. Titonka was second, with Bancroft a close third.

At the time of his death be served as pastor of the Catholic church at Danbury, in Woodbury, County, Iowa. The undertaker of Danbury came to Wesley, Monday, for the body and returned with it to Danbury that day in preparation for the funeral at Danbury Wednesday morning. Mr. McMahon will then go to Danbury for the deceased, bringing him back to St. Benedict for .final f uncial services and burial 'at St. Benedict. Father Arndorfor was the son of the late Charles Arndorfer, and was a half brpther of Nick and Emil Arndorfer. 4 Father J.iJ, Neppel will be in charge of funeral services at St. Benedict. Pvt. Don Ramus, son of Mrs. Grace Reynolds, LuVerne, has been in North Africa for four months in the Signal Corps. Due to the lack of cooks, Don has taken up the work of feeding his fellow sbTdiers. Don was in Florida prior'to his being shipped to North Africa. Before entering the service a year ago, Don was employed by John McGuire, local studied teletype, telegraph, an radio. Although Don wasn't abl to enter into actual combats, h was* helping to make them sue cessful by cooking their food which definitely is essential in ttv maintenance of a soldier. "Buy ah extta bond, more than your subscription, to, show thos boys at Salerno and the; othe fighting fronts that you appre ciate the risks they are taking fo: you" is the suggestion, received from state headquarters yesterday. • Algona plans a parade Saturdaj afternoon featuring the Algona high school band, and perhaps other activities to stimulate the sale of additional bonds. Lakota is planning some additioal work to get promises to buy anothei $5,000 in bonds to reach their quota. Many People Missed Some people have been missed in the house to house and farm to farm solicitation. Both farm and town solicitors are busy' people and have not had time to make call-backs on people that were missed. If you were missed, go to the nearest bank, post office, or other agency, and buy your bonds. Tell them to add your purchase to the list of subscribers. Quota Is Short More than $300,000 in bonds have been purchased in Kossuth county, but that is. less than one- third of the quota'for the month. Only three towns and five townships have reached their quotas so far, with several unreported. One township'chairman, looking over the subscription cards, was badly disappointed and said "If the farmers in Kossuth county cannot average $225 per quarter section of land in this drive, then this land is not worth what I thought it was, The prices, war prices mind you, that these fellows are getting should make it easy to double our quota. There are too many little subscriptions, $13,463 MISS ADOLPHSON, TEACHER 54 YEARS AT BANCROFT, DIES Came to Kossuth in 1871; Taught First and Second Grades in Bancroft Schools From 1889 to 1941, Over Half Century. Bancroft—Following more than a half century of continuous teaching in the Bancroft public schools, Miss Esther Adolphson passed away at her home hero Monday evening. She had been ill the past three months, suffering from a heart ailment. Her passing will be received with sorrow by hundreds upon hundreds of residents in this neighborhood and community, people who, in their school days through the years, remember her as "teacher." To Kossuth in 1872 Esther Adolphson was born at Red Wing, Minn., October 2G, 1867. When she was five years old the Adolphson family came to Kossuth and located Swea neighborhood. Her died in 1875 and she came to Algona and lived with friends and received her education there. She attended Colloman College, now Drake, at Des Moines, one year. She then taught rural schools near Algona Mother Takes On Heavy lob Toward Aiding In War Woik in the father Algona for two years. Following a two years' course at Iowa State College, Cedar Falls, she taught in the towns of Swea, Buffalo Center and Toledo, Iowa. To Bancroft in 1880 She came to Bancroft in the year 1889 and taught the first and second grades in the public schools continuously from thr.t time on until two years ago when she retired. Funeral services were held from the Baptist church here Thursday afternoon at .2:30 with R.-v. Sumners in charge. Interment was in the Bancroft cemeteiy Pallbearers were Wm. Peterson, Orville Ruby, Gerald Angus, Harold Angus, Charles Osborn ,and Reuben Olson. ••'••'•• The above picture was taken Friday following completion of a job of loading 50 tons of scrap iron into a car on the Northwestern tracks. The workers are reading left to right Robert Foster, Mrs. Kenneth Foster and Kenneth Foster. Robert is a brother of Kenneth. The Fosters are Algona residents. Because of the shortage of help Mrs. Foster donned overalls and joined her husband in the removal of 50 tons of scrap iron from the Greenberg yards to an open freight car on the Northwestern tracks. The scrap was loaded into a trucic, taken to the railroad yards and then lifted into the car, no easy task for any man. Mrs. Foster stood up under the job in first class shape, doing her share of lugging scrap and the three of them established a record here, Mr. Greenberg said, loading 50 The sters have five children, the oldest nine years and the youngest only three months. Mrs. Foster said that while the work was hard she felt that she had aided in contributing to the war effort, the scrap being consigned to war production plants, and while she didn't care to have that sort of a job continuously she was glad to be able to help her husband in fulfilling his contract to load the scrap. The Fosters live on • East Elm street, city. Sale Dates We list the following sale dat< as scheduled for »this month Thursday, September 30, C. M Knud; Algona Next Week Promises Good Exhibits, Interesting Program Like many other fairs thi year the Kossuth County Fair i being streamlined in size and in length to be the more nearly in keeping with war conditions. Ex hibits are being confined to 4-J- Clubs, crops, garden and school All of these are making a definite contribution to the national wai effort and should be promoted and supported. And all indications point to a fine exhibit in these lines as well as a good program of entertainment to go along with the usual fair interest. Many Stock Entries According to Secretary A. L Brown there have been 173 entries applied for in the live stock division. Open class live stock ex- ubits have been elimiSated and he show will admit of only 4-H entries. So far "40 dairy calves lave been entered, 91 beef calves, 15 hog litters and 7 sheep entries vp doubt there will be added en- nes in these classes before the gates are opened next Friday morning, September 24th. At east the interest shown by these 4-H exhibitors would indicate that the show will be full of competition as in former'years. .5. 4-H Girl Entries Fifteen of the 4-H Girls Clubs in the county have asked for space for exhibits, most of them garden booths. The Plum Creek Rura Youths are preparing an agricultural booth. In the floral hai there will be no exhibits of bakec goods and fancy work this year However, vegetables, fruits, preserves, grains and seeds and school displays will have booths Clerks, Bosses Sell $13,332 War Bonds In Two Days Starting at noon Thursday and winding up Saturday night tweV ty-two clerks and retailers in A 1 ' gona sold $}3,332 worth of war bonds in the opening drive of the third war loan.

They are letting George furnish his son. and his money, while they make money." The response in many areas is excellent, and in others there are so many who are, not doing their share, accordig to the War Activities office. as usual. . Entertainment While the program of entertainment will not be as extensive as in former years, horse racing, baseball, and stage productions being eliminated, the fair board has arranged for some good programs in the amusement line for both evenings of the fair. On Friday night the Farmers Saddle Club, more than fifty horses arid ponies taking part, will give a ;wo hours' exhibition in front of :he grand stand. Music will be :urnished by one of the three )ands, the Algna, Swea City and Bode high school groups. These hree will also furnish music hroughout the day. Saturday night a grpup of WAG entertainers from the WAC post at Des Moines will furnish the program on the stage in front of the am- phitheatre. These professional en- ertainers from the WAC post at Des Moines will furnish the pro- gram on the stage in front of the amphitheatre. These professional entertainers come highly recommended and will present a two hours program. The local band will furnish music. Admission to the grand stand will be less than that of former years. There will also be some rides and midway attractions offered this year, though not so extensive as in the past . Gates Open Friday Morning The gates for the two-day Victory fair will open Friday morning at 8 oclock, September 24th. Here again the admission will be less than that of former years. On Saturday night, following the am- phitheatre show, a dance will be leld in the floral hall. Space will be cleared in the center which will permit of many couples tripping the light fantastic. All in all, the outlook for a good fair good attendance and abundance o nteresting exhibits is at this writing very promising. While he fair is held a month later than usual it is thought that weather conditions may be more of a favorable and settled condition and armers will perhaps have more time to enjoy the 1943 Victory "'air in Algona.

City Faces Housing Problem. The Fort Dodge office of the- United States Employment Service will open a branch in Algona Monday to register construction workers to build the federal prison camp in Kossuth county; George D. Haskell, state war. manpower director, announced today. Contract for construction of the prison camp is scheduled to b'e let in Algona Saturday, Sept. 18. 675 Workers Present labor estimates call for the enrollment of 250 carpenters, 200 laborers and 225 miscellaneous construction workers. Haskell warned that applicants wtea live outside the Fort Dodge areai must secure a clearance front their own United States Employment Service office before they are eligible to apply at the Algona branch for work on this, project. He also pointed out that: men classified as agricultural workers must secure a clearance from their county agent before work under War Manpower Commission regulations, y C. J. Reynolds, of Fort Dodge, will open quarters for the Reemployment service'in the Chamber of Commerce offices Saturday, and will contact immediately the bidder awarded the building contract. Contract Saturday • The government' expects, to award the contract for the building of the prison camp in .this city Saturday. Letting of ,the corir- tract. by the way, has been postponed several times. As to closing the sales terms for the land by the government, that has so far- been hanging .fire! H.

In the meantime the •government is proceeding with the establisu- ment of the camp on; th>- land under an 'agreement' 'made with the owners that proper transfer of the land Can be made a't a later date. Housing: Problem ' ' The matter of housing and feed— jng that many men during. the- several months they are hereiwill be a problem of no small .proportions. Certainly there is rid. available rooming quarters in'the city at this time. Empty houses,: apartments, sleeping . rooms, are • at a premium. And .the fopd situation may be considered even" more serious. Several of'the restaurants and cafes .are'only open, part time, and some of them' are- closed alj day Sunday. Several at them close right after the supper hour. The matter of securing-ration points, meats, and dairy products, has been a headache for the food dispensers here for some time and certainly 'an entirely new and more generous set-up on the part of rationing authorities in this direction would have to be applied in order to take care of the situation here. Some Recreation Center When the camp is established and prisoners and guards take over, another grave problem faces Algona. We are told that with ;hree thousand prisoners there will be necessary a complement of 500 soldiers with, officers.' It s said that the officers will most- y try to secure housing in 'the- city. The prisoners, we are told, will be given no leaves, hence mean nothing to Algona from the tandpoint of contact. However, ivith 500 of our s,<rtdier boys' In own on leave at intervals spm£ arrangement must be • made and. ome suitable place'provided'.for ecreation for the* boys. Then, too,' suitable recreation centers- mu,st also be, furnished ' for our own youngsters who will more or less naturally be fou»d to mix with the soldier boys.
