The meeting was called to order by ReV. C. C. Richardson and he was elected temporary chairman with Miss Donna Hill, recording secretary. " Recreational Program Chairman Richardson stated that the purpose of the meeting was to discuss the problems of a recreational program for the 'teen-age as well as for the soldiers now about to come to Algona by virtue of the Detention camp. It was "generally agreed at the meeting that no one group -JT organization could or should attempt to handle the situation. • Two Programs It was decided that two distinct programs should be provided, the one having the U. S. O. as a basis for the .soldiers and the other to be provided locally for the 'teenage group, that two separate centers should be maintained. A committee of two, L. S. Bohannon and Mrs. D. D. Monlux, was appointed to contact the county war activities board as ta whether or not finances for the U. S .O. couid be raised by adding a quota to cover same in the forthcoming war chest drive. So far as the state war chest headquarters is concerned this might be worked out satisfactorily. Committee of Seven The committee of seven appointed to investigate and report on the problems was made up of representatives of the public schools, the parochial schools, the Algona Womans Club, the Algona P. T. A., the Algona Ministerial Union, the Junior Chamber of Commerce and the Senior Chamber of Commerce. This committee, of one selected from each organization, will start work immediately to complete a report on every element and condition entering into the recreational project and to present it for action at a forthcoming meeting of the citizen group.

With \twelve member teams the Kossuth Bowling League opened the season's competition in the Barry Recreation .alleys here Monday night. Last season saw sixteen teams competing. However, with the younger bowlers in the service and gas rationing putting a brake on making the trips to Algona, the League has only twelve teams. With the exception of Lone Rock all of the teams participated in last season's competition. The individual members of the different teams count up about as last year with the exception of Holsum Bread, This team has three of the engineers with the Detention Camp organization tipping pins. Two high scores were made the first week, those of Henry Fiirst of the Silve? Grays with 207 and Dr. Lichter of Burt with 210. The ONLY TWO DAYS LEFT TO MEET OUR WAR BOND QUOTA Banks and Theatres Open Saturday Night For Last Minute Purchasers; Let's Go Over Top. By Eugene'Murtagh v "£ County War Bond Chairman Every person who subscribed for war bonds in the third war loan must buy their bonds not later than Saturday if Kossuth county is to meet its quota. Subscriptions received at the war activities office in Algona indicate that the county quota will be met if everyone buys bonds subscribed and the present rate of additional purchases continues. All banks in the county are being asked to remain open Saturday night to give everyone anothe chance to get their "bonds. Th theatres will also take order Saturday night. Seven Towns Make Quota At least seven towns have re ported that their quotas have been made, or will be made in the next day or two. The other towns are making last minute efforts to complete . their drives with hopes of meeting their quotas. Eight of the twenty-eight townships have met their quotas, with several more in striking distance The areas.... which have met their, quotas seem to be the ones where the greatest effort was made on the opening day of the drive, although in others the last minute push has--helped.

The purchase of bonds should be on every person's ability to buy. This bond drive, or any other war effort, should be supported by everyone.

Then they would real ize that every man must do hi part in resisting and overcoming the enemy..

He had walked from Fort Dodge. Algona had eight houses and surveyors were laying out the townsite. He met Judge Call and had his first meal at the latter's home that evening. On Sunday he preached his first sermon here to twenty-five listeners4n'-the>'Mpoi'e cabin.-T-woi years later he organized the Congregational church with only five members.- He died February 29, 1876. / Present Pastor D.

He is the district chairman for the Mitchell Association, Congregational churches, and a member of the state board of directors of the Iowa Conference. He is deeply interested, and-takes an active part in 'civic affairs and fraternal Star. Dr. Martin is popular with Algona. laity and holds the respect and faith of his 'church membership. Merrill Bacon Splinters Forearm In Feed Grinder Merrill Bacon, son of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Bacon, northeast of Algona, got his arm entangled in a feed grinder Wednesday forenoon when he was about to put the belt on the machine after they had finished the grinding. The arm, from his elbow to his wrist, was all in splinters. The bones were split in six different places and the bones in his wrist were broken.

The past iveek saw two days well into the Os. And, wonder of wonders, here were ten days when we did not have a drop of rain, the long- st continuous dry period for th •ear 1943 so far. While hte tern ierature the past week averaged 60.6, it was still 1.5 below nor mal. But the same days in Sep tember of 1942 were really colt with an average of 40.9, just 19.7 below those of this year. September 26, 1949 It may be remembered by many that we experienced the first snow of the season on September 26, 1942, and on that day enough snow fell so that Donald EischeH •7, son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Eischeid, 5^ miles east of here, had rolled a- snowball of some proportions.- And it was the earliest snowfall in the Wstory of .the county. And the temperature on Iftat day, was 4$ high and S v2 low, wluie this year it was ?/§ high and 40 low, ? SPil-' temperature for tlie week averaged 90.9 and it 45.8 Jast year.

Up to last night, Wednesday, the boys in the Algona liquor store had reached the sum of $140,08 in bond sales during Septmeber, o rather in the third war bond drive That is a record which we ques iion any other liquor -store in the states 175 can reach. And w are certain that no town the sizi of Algona can equal that mark. Nearly Half Million Since the store started the sali )f war bonds and stamps Decem 3er 15, 1941, the boys have sole nearly one-half million dollars worth. This is also a record tha very few of even the larger city stores can equal. Their biggesi month's business was that of laui April when they disposed of a otal of $134,839 worth of bonds, And this has now been topped by 'tetter than $6,000. Manager G. D. Brundage, Bert 3 almer, Cleve Barton and Joe Bestenlehner have proved themselves bond salesmen of the first order, as witness their sales run. ning sometimes over $10,000 per day during a drive. Surely the $140,087 sales in this drive will go a long ways toward making the city and county quotas a success in the drive closing tonight.
