KIDS STEALING MILK CHANGE AND SUNDAY PAPERS Citizens Report Activity In Different Parts of City; Youngsters Resell Sunday Papers For Nickel One of the first fine days several Algona youngsters will be picked up and haled into juvenile court to answer to the charge of petty larceny. According to several reports made to authorities considerable small change stealing is going on here, where citizens have left milk bottles outside with charlge in them for ths next morning's milk delivery. The youngsters help themselves to the change. Then,, too, there have been numerous instances of late where citizens have lost their Sunday morning papers. The regular carrier boys insist that the papers have been left as usual. In one instance a citizen caught a neighbor boy ma_king away with his Sunday Register. The boy, 13, admitted he had picked up several papers and had sold them for a nickel each by signaling drivers on the primary streets. The youngster was thoroughly repentant, and because of the lad's family being fine neign- bors the citizen did not press prosecution in this case. Boys Being Watched Several -lads, under suspicion, are now being watched as to their activities, both in the matter of milk bottle change and the Sunday paper angle. Perhaps there are many cases which might come to light as to these little thefts having been going on for some time. One citizen said Sunday that he had lost over $1.30 in milk bottle change since the first o$ August, and had lost five of his Sunday papers and he admitted he was getting tired of all this and there would be no softening in his heart if he ever caught the boy or boys who were doing the pilfering of his front porch. And there may be many others who ^eel, the same way. This. ,pitizen also suggested that it ariigh'trbe' well: .for • the; regular• salesboys for the Sunday paper to Carry some identification mark so people would know they were buying from an authorized newsboy and not from a thief. Correspondents Please Note Because of press day falling on, Thanksgiving next week may we have your news letters a day earlier in order that our help may have Thursday afternoon off to properly enjoy their Thanksgiving dinner? We shall appreciate your co-operation. FIFTY CREAMERY OFFICIALS TALK DRIED SKIM MILK Met Here Tuesday and Discussed Conversion In Plants For Manufacture of Dried Products.

There are 3200 farmers in this county who yearly produce enough dairy products to manufacture 4,000,000 pounds of butter. It is thought that part of this dairy output could' and should be converted into powdered skim milk and thus be used for human consumption. Visiting Speakers Some time since a meeting was called by the extension service of Iowa State College and at that time a committee was appointed and the Tuesday meeting wns called by that committee. Speakers present answered questions from the floor and gave a detailed account of the need, financing and operation of such a project. Speakers included Prof. Rutniok of the extension service, • Mr. Smith, who has charge of the lend-lease for the Omaha Land Bank; ; andiMr. 'Copp of the.,War Food Administration dairy and poultry division. Milk Powder a Need If the co-operative creameries decide to make such conversion in their plants at the present prices it would be possible to pay 75c per hundred for skim milk. It was pointed out that an increased supply of milk powder must come from creamery conversion as all other sources have been practically exhausted. There is also an increasing need for powdered skim milk in the fooc for freedom program, and it creates more for human consumption. The general cost of the project can be carried by lend- lease and equipment required may be leased by the creamery at 11 per cent per year. Eight 'Boards Favorable Following a recess of ten minutes to permit local board members to confer a roll was taken. The Titonka and Bancroft members present were neutral, but wanted to talk with their patrons before making a declaration. Favorable votes were given by s Ledyard, West Bend, Algona, Fenton, Whittemore, Swea City, Lone Rock and Lakota. The meeting was adjourned to November 30 at the Legion hall in Algona. Board members in the meantime will make a survey as to the attitude of their patrons toward the dried skim milk project. Lt. Arne Pedersen's Plane Crashes cota; Jessie Smith, Algona; L. C.

He had been gone since June 15. Walt felt fortunate that in working at the farther end of the highway he was able to see practically all of it. He made the statement that he saw more beautiful-country than he ever expects to see again. .He was able to take pictures of some of the more scenic spots and after an exchange with other workmen who also got snapshots, expects to have quite a collection in time. He enjoyed' his stay and gained 15 pounds while he was gona. His work was driving a truck. Enroute home his boat docked at Ketchikan where an interesting sight was the loading of some 80,000 tons of frozen fish. Walt said wages were good and a man could do well if he cared to, but many squandered their money and returned with no more than they went up with.

ALL DISCARDED CLOTHING, RAGS ARE ASKED EOR priye >M Bj^Salvage Commit- d 'ieie : :'"Npv'. ; ".'".22' v '"t6 Dec. • 4 Women of Churches to Make Collection. Plans are under way for . the participation of Kossuth county in the nation-wide collection of discarded clothing and rags. This drive opens November 22 and ends December 4. An urgent need for clothing, which can be made wearable, exists. As our armed forces advance liberating the people who have been under Nazi tyranny, it has been found that old clothing which has been salvaged, has helped tremendously in the rehabilitation of the liberated peoples. There is likewise a critical need in the armed forces for rags and wiping cloths and other essential needs. All unwearable clothing which can be reduced to rags, is wanted. Women to Collect It' is planned that the collection shall be made by the women's organizations of the churches .throughout the county with the coordinated help of the local chapters of the United Service Women's organizations. The county organization is headed by W. E. Ley, of Lakota, county salvage chairman, and Mrs. Howard French, of Titonka, chairman of the women's salvage organization. Mrs. D. D. Monlux is the local women's salvage chairman working with Eugene Murtagh, who, is the chairman of the Algona Salvage District. Announce in Churches Announcements will be made in the churches Sunday as to where and when the clothing and rags should be brought. Every type of clothing for men, women, children, and infants is wanted, except hats and caps, shoes, leather gloves, overshoes, neckties and belts. Any type of fabric which can be used as rags is also wanted. The clothing and rags do not need to be cleaned but it would be appreciated by all workers if the clothing items could be brushed before they are turned in. -For those people with no church affiliation, it is urged that they contact a neighbor who FOOD FOR VICTORY PROGRAM IS TAKEN SERIOUSLY HERE Farmers Add 28,000 Acres in Corn to 1943 Allotment; County Average 61 Bushels Per Acre. '. The farmers in Kossuth county qre taking the food for victory program seriously and patriotically and when the corn acreage' allotment of 196,967 was placed, for Kossuth the growers just ad-> -led another 28,000 acres and as. i result the county grew just an- ; -ither 1,708,000 bushels of corn,; nlacing the average yield at 61 '. bushels to the acre. Not. a bart; record for Kossuth farmers and; one which no other county in the; state can equal, acre for acre. ' Carl Reports Average Leslie M. Carl, statistician for the federal-state crop reporting ' service, sets out the corn yield average per acre by counties and] he places Kossuth at 61 bushels oer acre. With 225,000 acres in- •;orn in Kossuth in 1943 this: means that approximately 13,-» 500,000 bushels of corn "was pick~ •>d, or will be picked this fall in Kossuth., Were we to sell that corn for, say 90c per bushel, cash on the barrel head, it would mean an income to Kossuth farmers of $12,150,000. Township Records The increases in corn acreage by township was set up by the* AAA office. With 28 townships.: in the county and an increase of 28,000 acres for the county, broken down this meand that each' township grew 1000 more acres' of corn than was allotted that township. We repeat, .hats off to Kossuth farmers. They*: are really contributing to the success of the food for victory program. The record by townshipsi' '43 Allt.
