County War FALL SCRAP DRIVE SET FOR THURSDAY OFNEXT WEEK - <tae Day Set Aside For Gathering' Scrap in This District; 'Men and Trucks r rttfnfaiff' Up -For- Johf ' ''Plans are petting-eUnder.Way in all Communities in the county for the'fall scrap harvest to be held on Thursday, October I4th. • - It is realized by everyone that this is an extremely busy time to hold a scrap drive in a farming community. The date was selected because it was hoped that the big rush on the soy bean combining would be over and the corn picking would not be completely under way. The scrap should be collected in time to be worked up and shipped to the steel mills before the winter snows set in. Pick Up Scrap Everyone is urged, both in the towns and the country, to gather up everything which can be put Into' the Nation's Scrap Metal Pile. The scrap committees want to repeat to the farmers that no wire is being hauled in this drive. Because of the shortage of help it is impossible to handle the wire in the local yards and in the various ...baling yards. • Committees In the Algona districts committees are now laying plans for the drive. The Algona chapter of the Red Cross will again operate a refreshment .stand across the street from the scrap dump, which again will be at the Northwestern station. Committee chairmen in the Algona district are as follows, with chairman named first and the to\yn representatives second: - , . Union—Alfred Schenck and Wendell Jensen. Plum Creek—Hollis Benschoter and Wm, St. Clair. resigned the home economist work as of Oct. 1. Mjss Schultz has made application to join th Red Cross Overseas Canteen Ser vice and hopes to take up tha work within a short time. Dur ing her connection with the ex tension service in this count} Miss Schultz made a host o friends, especially with the 4-H club girls and their parents. Sh proved highly capable in everj detail connected with her work She succeeded Mrs. Ruth Sexton Hicks here in 1942 and the latter is now with the main office in Ames. So far no successor to Miss Schultz has been appointed MISSBURNETTA BONNSTETTER HEADS SEALS SALE been" appointed County , Chairman of the Christmas .Seal Campaign of the Kossuth County Tuberculosis Association, Joe Lowe, president of 'the Association, announced today. The first official duty of Miss Bonnstetter will be the appointment of a committee to assist in the Christmas Seal Sale which will open on Monday, Nov. 22, and continue uhitl Christmas. T. B. Deaths Increase In accepting the appointment, Miss Bonnstetter said, "Records show for the second time in 18 years, the Iowa tuberculosis death rate rose last year. It is too early to'judge Wh_e|H6r^6r not the increase was caused, by the war and if it is ^be followed by still other increases, But in' any case' it stands as a challenge to the people of Iowa, and it is clear that under present conditions, we must continue to expand our wartime tuberculosis "campaign. The Kossuth County Tuberculosis Association has the biggest job in its history to do during 1944' and can do it only if'the Christmas Seal. Sale is a success. Ninety-five cents out of every Seal Sale dollar remains in Iowa to fight tuberculosis. I KOSSUTH MONEY TO PROVIDE HELP FOR USO CENTERS Drive to Raise $22,000 Is Started In County; Fund to Cover Help For 17 Agencies and Clubs. USO, the' "home away from home" for millions of American soldiers, sailors, coast guardsmen, marines and women in the services, will receive approximately 55 per cent of the funds raised in the National War Fund Campaign in Kossuth county. Other agencies such as War Prisoners Aid, -United Seaman's Service and 14 relief appeals for United .Nations will divide the remain- Ing 45 per cent upon a basis of budgeted needs, it was stated today by A. E. Kresensky, chair-' man of the War Fund drive in ECossuth. $61,000,000 to USO "On a national scale," it was stated by Chairman Kresensky, 'the USO receives approximately *61,000,000 of the national goal f $125,000,000 for all 17 agencies ncluded in the National War und. This amounts to less than 2 cents per day per man -and woman in active service in the armed forces, of the nation—a rather small amount for us to give for USO when you consider what these people in service are doing,.for us." Today, more 4han 16,000,000 visitors per monifh are enjoying more than 2,400 USO clubs and centers in this country • and its hemisphere bases.

Your daily hours for hunting are from 9 o'clock a. m. to 5 p. m. The state conservation commission has opened quail shooting this fall to 65 counties. Twenty- two of these in the central part will be permitted to shoot quail from October 28 to November 7. a ten day period, and the bag will be limited to three birds. In \past years these counties have furnished hunters during the pheasant season for this area. Perhaps our ..own sportsmen wi!l have more shooting this year because the southern, hunters will have some hunting in their own areas, and again because of gas rationing, as well as a shortage of shells. . . t. i VanAllen, Nellie ............

By Gene Murtagh County .Bond Chairman With returns still Incomplete, Kossuth county has definitely exceeded Its quota in the Third War Loan drive by over $220,000.00. Actual purchase of bonds between September 1st and October 2nd are in excess of $1,375,000.00, „ while the quota for the county was $1,153,000.00. ; Farmers Buy With purchases of series E, F and G. bbnds still counting in the drive until October 15th it is probable that the margin over the quota will reach $250.000.80. In one day this week in one of the banks in the county, there? were five substantial purchases, of bonds by farmers who Had received checks for their soy beans. Agencies Commended The bank, theatre and other agencies are certainly, to be com-' mended for their work in issuing the bonds. It ,may not be generally understood by 1 the public hut the banks and theatres do not get a cent for their work in handling the bonds, but they gladly donate their time, feeling that this is a vital contribution to the war effort. While postoffices have been selling bonds for a great many years, their sales are surprisingly small in comparison with the sales of other agencies.
