ANTI-INC TAXEfiS mi FEAR PROFITS CUT •AlCOMOt—tin the state senate prltlay a bill to let grain alcohol be manufactured dn Iowa was up. An amendment was offered to limit manufacture to denatured stuff. The amendment was killed by a 34-15 vote. , Patterson voted';. Against the amendment; that ifl| he voted to let the real thing, alcohol you can spike With, be made Jn' this state. N O W, don't get het up: Patterson didn't vote to let that' alcohol be lised for spiking. He'knew the antl- I booze laws of ilowa would remain dust the same. What he and the oth- I er 33 expected would be done with it Is not of .record, but maybe they figured it would be used in medicines I and in hospitals. The main argument however, seems to have been that it | would dispose of some of the corn surplus. Clifton, .of the D. M. Register, j 'drew a rather far-fetched conclusion that this vote, In a measure, indicated the wet-dry line-ups in the I senate. (But he admitted that some rdrys voted against the denaturing 'amendment. He thought there might be seven, indicating that 'the num- | bet of real wets, was 27, which is a marrow majority of the senate. ALGONA, IOWA, FEBRUARY 9, 1933 .

His childhood was spent at various points where nls father served in the ministry. One of these was Algona, and here, on October 5, 18S7, David was mar- r ed to Nellie S. Thlele, who at the time was principal of the old Central school. Mrs. Mitchell's parents were Mr. and Mrs. Carl Thiele, piio- neer Algona farmers. Built Many Kogsnth Homes. The entire married life of the Mitchells was spent in Algona. David became a contractor and builder, and 'he followed the trade till he was stricken. He built many Koseuth town and country homes and outbuildings. One of his prized possessions was a map of the county on which he had platted places where he had built buldings.

Reefer, with Merle Scolds, who was sentenced last week to a year at Anamosa on a charge of attempted jail-break, were taken to Anamosa Monday (by Sheriff Dahlhauser. (Reefer was sentenced to a year at Anamosa a week ago Saturday on a charge of attempted jail break, arising from the same bar-sawing for which Scolds was sentenced. The year will run concurrently with the 5-year sentence, so Reefer will have to serve only five years, less time for good behavior.

Algona business,'houses wcro not prepared t o meet the demand, ipuzzles, as soon as worked by one group, have been passed to another. The puzzles aro no child's play. It takes two to five hours, even longer In some cases, to fit intricate little pieces into their proper niches and complete a picture. There is no pattern to follow that would make the puzzle too easy to work. Bridge Is still the leading card game, but contract has almost entirely supplanted auction A new system of counting In contract has been accepted. Variations of ".rummy" are played when bridge' palls. Ping-pong Js still extensively played by the more athletically inclined. Perhaps it is. an influence of the depression, but there is seem- ' mgly more interest in games now than before in recent years. There is a tendency toward the formation of small groups of four to eight rather than larger roups. MERCURY HITS 22 BELOW TO SET LOW MARK Strong Wind, Snow Add to Bitter Cold Snap. The groundhog, perhaps wearying of the fun made of him on the bright suilny day when he emerged from his hole on February 2, and the weather man seemingly got together last week and mapped out a fiercely cold wave to give an emphatic point to the groundhog's prediction of .six weeks more of winter. At any rate the weather turned chill Saturday and the record low temperatures of the season have since been ecorded. Yesterday morning the official emperature report showed that the neroury had registered 22 degrees below zero Tuesday night.

' The jury retired shortly after 4 p. m. Friday and returned the verdict at 9 p. m. the same day. According to evidence accepted by the jury, the McNutt car ran into the rear of the Tlanger car on No. 20, west of Webster, City, catapulting the Rangers sidewl'se into the ditch. The McNutt car was ditched at a point farther down the road, but did not turn over, and Mr. McNutt was able to drive it out.'

Sullivan, new official Iowa scale inspector under Ray blessed that day. 2. Day of the } feast February. In Scotland it is one of the quarter days. "In some parts of the United States Candlemas day is often popularly called groundhog or woodchuck day, in allusion to the tradition that on that day the animal comes out of his hole, and if he casts a shadow runs back, .on which a return of wintry weather is to be expected." The duration of winter following a sunny groundhog day varies in different parts of the country from 30 days to two months, according to local tradition, the difference probably arising from differences in latitude.

In such cases offenders are entitled to a degree of consideration which Is not the due of drivers with less sense. Brodigan was arrested near Whittemore by Theo.
