The Algona Upper De* Moines, Algona, Iowa, November 4,1943. BALL TEAMS AT ACADEMY IN WntAMURAL TILTS (Academy Rippfes) End ball, the game so popular among high school girls, furnishes Hhe Physical Education classes plenty of competition. Teams have been organized and several intramural tilts have brought victory te the senior girls. Evelyn Elbert was elected captain of the senior team. Mary Hil- l»ert is captain of the juniors. The seniors' ability to throw the ball Wgh and far, which is one of the «ssentials of End Ball, together •with expert guarding has made them victorious in all interclass games. June Forsberg, outstanding baseman, piled up the score 22-3 for the seniors in the first game with the aid of Eileen Thul and IKarianna Magonegil as fellow basemen. Leta Reynolds, Evelyn Slbert and Cecelia Coleman cooperated in the guard court. Lopsided Score Lillian Cink, Beverly Stebritz and Mary Hilbert are the basemen «f the junior team while Dorothy Reynolds, Vera Mae Semon, Julia Weir, and Esther Eischied make up the defense. Despite the skill of these players the seniors won the second game with the lopsided score of 33-H. Retaining the same basemen and guards on both teams for the third game the seniors defeated toe juniors 24-9. in the latest tilt the senior guards included June Forsberg, Evelyn Elbert, Eileen Thul and Marilyn Allen with the basemen Cecelia Coleman, Marianne Magonegil and Eileen Wingert. The juniors were at a loss as to what to do with the ball. After they did acquire it, which was very seldom, they either knocked it out of bounds or allowed their opponents to recapture it. As a result of the juniors' errors, fumbles, and fouls the seniors defeated them 40-15.

Kohlhaas Hardware KOSSUTH FARMERS NOT THE FIRST TO GROW IOWA HEMP One hundred years ago hemp was grown In Iowa, In Scott county, and history says they raised some good crops. One hundred years later Kossuth goes into hemp raising on a big scale, 4,200 acres being planted to that weed this year. For many decades Iowa has ranked first among the forty- eight states in agricultural production. Her rich black soil and salubrious climate coupled with the industry and enterprise of her farmers combine to maintain the Hawkeye state in a position of leadership. World War II has placed grave responsibilities on the farmers of Iowa—responsibilities that have been met without flinching. In 1942 Iowa produced the largest corn crop in its history. The results for 1943 have not been tallied but the August estimate placed the crop at 565 million bushels, th esecond largest Iowa crop on record. On October 12th a special correspondent of the New York Times informed his readers that the largest corn crop and hog count in Iowa's history seemed likely. At the same time the Iowa farm income was estimated at twice the 1941 figure. It is not merely in her staple crops and livestock production that Iowa has displayed such productivity. The state has shown up equally well in soybean production, a relatively new crop. Moreover, lowans and agriculturalists generally are watching production figures on what is generally considered a newcomer —hemp—a crop imported for many years until Japan cut off the nation's source of supply. This undertaking recalls the interesting fact that hemp production was successfully undertaken in Iowa a century ago. The story of this experiment is told by Dr. William J. Peterson in the October issue of "The Palimpsest", the monthly publication of the State Historical Society. In August of 1843 the Davenport Gazette noted that several Scott county farmers were engaged pretty extensively in raising hemp. "Three out of four fields which have been reported to us, will yield handsomely, encouraging the proprietors to extend their operations the following season. We were shown last week a few samples of rope and twine manufactured by Mr. Moore of Rock Island which is considered superior to that made at St. Louis." The return of hemp raising a century later is but a part of Iowa's all-out effort in 1943. Bits About Them at West Bend] Mf. and Mrs. Bernard Schneider are the parents of a son bom Sunday morning.
