The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algdna, Iowa, S<sptenib«r 3*, 1149 FOUR-H FAIR LIVE STOCK SHOWINGS PROVE EXCELENT Exhibits In Baby Beef Division Larger Than Last Year; Good Competition Throughout. The Victory Fair last week proved, after all, not the least disappointing to the thousands who attended during the two days' show. Exhibits in the Floral hall were confined to vegetables and fruits, and to individual exhibits by 4-H club projects. The county superintendent's office had a fine exhibit in the modern school room and in a near-by booth was exhibited the school room of a half century ago. Then, too, there were several booths containing exhibits from individual schools and classes. This part of the floral hall showing proved highly interesting.

Red Cross Asks For Felt and Wool Goods The Kossuth Red Cross has a new project to make "scuffles" or soft soled bedroom slippers for convalescent service men. The slippers are made with a sole cut from an old felt hat and'the tops from heavy woolen garments, and then are lined with flannel. Anyone who has old felt hats and woolen garments which they can donate for the cause should take them to the local Red Cross Chapter over the Iowa State Bank any afternoon, Monday through Friday. Those living outside of Algona should take their donation to their branch chairman. The garments must be clean when turned in, as the Red Cross has no means of washing them. Lt.

Theodore is employed in the Bower Roller Bearing plant in Detroit. The firm is doing defense work. The housing situation in Detroit is critical, but Theodore hopes to find a home for his family in the near future.
