HUNGER FIGHTERS-There's a nook by that name. .It's about scientists who fought climate, ' pests, etc., to mnke the world safe for crops. Juat now the term might be applied to democrats after federal jobs. A Washington, D. C., writer In the Bloux City Journal says the horde oeecendlnE on democratic senators ana representatives is like a grasshopper plague. Some senators don't Dare enter their office suites via the reception rooms; they have to use the waiting 325 •the year 1932. This showing would require the board to make an appropriation of $3250 in 1933. According to law, the county has to put up $10 for every $5 paid for memberships. In discussion of the appropriation it was brought out that salaries and other expenses of the Farm Bureau will be reduced in 1933. The mileage allowance, heretofore 5c, will be dropped to 4c. Us© of Basement Room Asked. Mr. Christiansen asked the board for permission to occupy the former welfare worker's room in the basement of the courthouse, now unoccupied. The Farm Bureau office, Mr. Christiansen said, would be glad to have the room, with the understanding that whenever It was needed 'for county purposes • the Farm Bureau would vacate. In many .other .counties the Farm Bureau has offices in the courthouse, with light, heat, and water furnished. Here the Farm Bureau .would pay for these items. Use of the courthouse quarters would, however, -enable—the organization to save $31j50 a month rent. . Fledge Members Not Counted. ^Presenting ,the», application, Mr.. Christiansert' called attention to an affidavit showing, that 325 memberships had been paid in cash. This does not include pledgee unpaid, though the law permits such pledges to be counted. If they had been filed the membership showing would .have required the appropriation of $500 to $1,000 more. No'list of members was filed, as It isi not required under the law. Mr. Christiaraten sajd, however, that the •books could .be Inspected at . the Farm Bureau office by anyone at any time. MOST OF THE DEPUTIES ON THEJOB YET Retiring Treasu r e r Enters Insurance Business. The democrats took over the entire courthouse Tuesday morning, as the result of the November landslide. Though (Monday was New Year's and a legal holiday, most of the offices were open, while the new holders studied their duties and the outgoing officers cleaned up personal belongings to make way for their successors. The new courthouse'officers are: E. J. Butler, auditor; Maurice Duffy treasurer; E. J. McEvoy, clerk; Carl Dahlhauser, sheriff; J. J. 'Doolcy, recorder. They succeeded •respectively Bertha E. Johnson, H. N. Kruse, Clark Orton, L. E. Hovey, and Mrs. Laura Paine. Few Changes In Deputies. While the heads of the offices changed, there was • little change among deputies. Alma Greiner replaced Mrs. Clara Schaap as deputy clerk, and Casey Loss replaced E. L. Harris as deputy sheriff. In the auditor's office Mr. Butler retained Carl Pearson as first deputy; Harley Bartlett, second deputy; and Irene Vaudt, clerk. Treasurer Duffy retained E. P. Griffith, deputy, and C. S. Pearson, auto license deputy; Mrs. V. J. Sands, clerk, and Eleanor Rahm and Lila 'Bishop, temporary clerks. Recorder Dooley retained Mrs. E. C. Dickinson as deputy. Kruse Buys Insurance Ag-ency. Mr. Kruse, who has purchased the E. F. Rahm and Eugene Schemel insurance business, took possession CONTEST IS ON OVER RQRRED ™ COUNTY NEWSPAPERS For the first time in many years there will be a contest before the •board of supervisors over appointment of Koseuth's official newspa pers. The Advance, the Upper Des iMoines-KepU'bllcan, and the Bancroft Register, which have been the official papers, have filed applications, and Lee O. Wolfe has also filed for the Titonka Topic. Mr Wolfe's paper was official for some years early in the century, but was nosed out by the Register. Tho appointments go by law tc the three. newspapers having the largest circulation. When only three file applications there is no contest but if more than three file, a contest is automatically created, and in that event all the newspapers have to file circulation .lists. Only circulation within the county counts. The board has set January 19 for the hearings, and the circulation lists must be filed at that time. Mr. Wolfe's application is believed to be, an outgrowth of .the recently organized county newspaper organization, which does not include the Algona and Bancroft papers.

Approximately ^$8,000 a week was paid out for supplies, labor, and other items. The.firm which transacted this 'business was the Swift produce plant. Matt Lamuth, manager, is proud of the record, in a year in which business, to say the least, was not of the best." •Approximately 350 persons were benefited,- Many are farmers who sell toutterfat, eggs, and poultry. Others are Algona people who live here, pay taxes, a'nd are employed toy Swift & Co. The produce plant is a distinct trade advantage to Algoija merchants,, inasmuch as farmers with butterfat,. eggs, and poultry' to sell brinp it here and after selling ft tp Swift' &' Co. spend the money with local merchants. . • • COUNTY MUTUAL'S ANNUAL MEET TO BE HELD TUESDAY once, but the knocked It out on *t a still Wolfe sito they didn't name a The annual meeting of .the County Mutual will be held at -the courthouse next week Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock for the election of three directors, hearing of reports, anc any other business that may come up: The company, as usual, is in an excellent condition. There were 9 losses this year, but the total fiaid out was less than in 1931, Ipss- es being for small amounts. In 1932 the total paid was $37,793,56 on 159 losses, whereas in 1931 the total was S43.-136.SO on 121 losses. The company has $17,470,000 insurance in force, last week Tuesday, and begins active work this week. - - Mr. (Rahm leaves soon to take up duties as appointee in the secretary of state's office, Des Molnes, and Mr. Schemel is bank examiner at Xivermore. Mr. Kruse operated an insurance agency at Swea City before he was elected treasurer, and so is well acquainted with the business. Mr. Orton will devote his time to his ranch just west of the Ambrose A. Call state park, where, amid virgin timber, he erected a western- style ranch house a year or so ago. Hovey to Write Insurance. Mr. Hovey has been made local agent for the New York Mutual Life Insurance Co. Later he will open an office. For the present he plans to maintain headquarters at his home. He has moved into a. house one block south of the Algona hotel. Miss Johnson, retiring auditor, and Mrs. Paine, retiring recorder, have not made definite plans. Neither was a candidate for reelection. Sheriff Dahlhaiieerimoved into the sheriff's house Monday. '" Treasurer Duffy moved to Algona from Whlt- ,temore a month ago, and is settled In the Johnson estate house, a block west of the 'First Lutheran church.

The first ten months of 1932, all that had been compiled and officially entered up to Saturday, show-* ed a total of $34,230.06, with two mohths, November and December, among the heaviest of the year, yet to come in. The totals by months follow: January $2659.35 February 4145.53 March . __„__•____:;_- 5309.16 April 5130.84 May 2849.75 June 3496.67 Ju 'y - -— _._ 210S.55 August 2405.38 •September 3284.49 October „ , 2843.34 These totals by months are for the months when the bills are paid. In most cases the accounts are contracted in the preceding month. Hence the total given for January, 1932, was for the bills paid on December, 1931, purchases. There is always a marked drop in spring. As appears in . the table April had a total of $5100, tout the expense dropped to $2800 in May. The present levy of three mills raises only approximately $34,000, hence the poor fund has been consistently overdrawn in recent years, Last spring it was necessary to borrow $15,000 from the county general fund to take up overdrafts and leave a working balance. In reality, however, the general fund owed the poor fund for a loan some years ago, when the-poor-tund had an excess balance in prosperity years. The population of the county be- PEPPER IN EYES OF LAKOTA MAN Blinds and Beats Up Victim; Is Caught and Jailed. Christ Reffer, 23, Lakota, was bound to the grand Jury by Justice Danson last Thursday on a. charge of attempt to commit robbery. Reffer and Harold Koppen, 17, threw pepper into the eyes of William 'Schroeder .Jr., Lakota, on December 23, when the latter was going' home at night. The pepper was designed to blind the victim, but the robbers also slugged Schroeder with a rubber hose filled with sand. The. attack was not successful, for . Schroeder put up a stiff fight. Koppen fled when Schroeder was not knocked out by blows from the improvised "billy." Reffer continued the. struggle till Schroeder began to get the best of him, when he also fled. • Slugger to County Jail. Schroeder notified Lakota Delinquent Tax Sale Put Off Till Jan. 30 peace officers, and Sheriff Hovey was called. 'On the way to Lakota he picked up William Ricklefs. Titonka constable. Koppen had left his car near the scene, and a half hour or so after the- officers arrived Koppen came for t and was arrested. He confessed, mplicating Reffer,' who was ar- •ested the same night. Reffer was brought to Algona, vhere he has since been in Jail. Koppen, who- is a minor and was undoubtedly influenced by. Reffer, was eft with his parents, but Is to be brought here when his presence Is desired. -Plans to Plead Guilty. Reffer was out on parole from a /ear's penitentiary/ sentence on a charge of driving^a car while intoxi- :ated. He pleaded guilty late last ummer, but was paroled from the The annual delinquent tax sale, scheduled this time for January 2, 1933, has been postponed till January. 30 at 10 a. m. This was one of H. N. Kruse's last official acts before his term as treasurer expired Monday night. The postponement gives delinquent taxpayers a second month in which to pay up before their property is sold for taxes. It also gives Maurice Duffy, the new treasurer, a month in which to become familiar with his duties before dealing with the tax sale problem. Delinquent taxes are being paid up fairly rapidly. In fact the situation is excellent, considering the times. When publication was made in the first week in December there was a total of $147,189 due. Between De comber 5, when the list was firs published, and December 24, a tota of $36/872 was paid in, and in fiv> days last week $38,094 more was •paid. This is a grand total of $74, 966, or slightly more than half o: the delinquent taxes. The number of descriptions, which was 2447 in the publication, has diminished one-third, indicating that the larger amounts are being paid Many not paid are small platted areas laid out as'town lots but never improved or still without buildings Many platted lots, such as those Trade Checks Hit Fancy of Subscribers at Stevens (east of Lakota), City, Bancroft, and Algona taxes of .less than a dollar.

Since, however, the poor themselves must toe eliminated, as well as the many others who pay no (taxes, the real per capita expense against taxpayers is much larger. Algonian Loses Mother. The Rev. and Mrs. P. J. Braner attended the funeral of a Mrs. Merkle, mother of (Mrs. Merle W. eady to plead guilty to the charge if attempted robbery.

Victim Abed Two Days. Mr. Schroeder spent two days abed, recovering from the pepper In his eyes and the severe beating. Ufa eyes were extremely painful for several days. One was tolack- ed by the "billy," a nd his head was severely bruised. After the pepper had been thrown into his eyes and when he was being beaten and otherwise mauled, Mr. Schroeder pleaded with the pair to let. him go, offering to give them his money. . . ' When his assailants kept on regardless, Schroeder fought back till a Mr. Sturdevant, who lives above his butcher shop across the street, was awakened and opened his window. This was what frightened Reffer away. Mr. Sturdevant helped Mr. Sehroeder horn© and called a doctor. -*• The treasurer received many notices that cars had:been stored for the year. When a car is stored a license is not necessary, but if the car is returned to use at any time in the year, the license fee, plus the monthly penalty, attaches. The last day of the closing year was one of the busiest for the county treasurer in the history of auto- licensing in Kossuth. The treasurer's office was Jammed from the time It opened at 8 a. m. till it closed long after the regular closing time, which is 5 p. m. The five employes in the office spent the entire day writing licenses. The waiting crowd extended out Into the hallway and almost blocked the east door. There was a number of sheriff's sales at the east door, held by Sheriff L. E. Hovey and his deputy, E. L. Harris, to close up their work before the office was turned over to Sheriff Carl Dahlhauser. These sales attracted the attorneys and interested land holders, and so added to the day's crowd. • The volume of business done by the treasurer's office can be estimated from the fact that when the day closed there was $11,000 in cash the safe, all taken in during the in day. In addition, many applications came by mail. The '50c trade check which the Advance is giving to every subscriber in Kossuth or at border- Ing postoffices who pays a 1933 subscription seems to have struck the popular fancy. During the two weeks since the offer was made more than 100 of these checks have been issued, and this though no subscription statements have been sent out. The idea is to give subscribers a rebate appropriate to the times and yet help a little to revive trade. Farmers. who have received the checks with this explanation have without exception approved. On this page appears a reproduction of the trade check. In affect It reduces the 1933 subscription price to $1.50.
