UK DO H FAIRY 'E'WELL, IRE'S SOME HOT HUNK—The season for slll> political rumors was supposed to ex plre with the closing of the polls last November 8. It didn't. Here comes Saturday's Marshalltown Tlmos-'Republlcan reporting i whisper going the rounds of th etate to the effect that Governoi Herring will resign to accept the better paying Job of Des Molnes postmaster! And Plain Talk, Des Molnes eprlngs an even gaudier one: Senator Blcklnson to going to resign then Governor Herring will follow • gult, and Lieut.-Gov. Kraschel, thus j elevated to governor, will appoint I Herring senator! Editor Moscrip, of the T.-R., old I enough to know better, dignifies whisper No. 1 with a solemn edl- | tortol. Usten! The Times-(Republlcan Is slow to I believe that the governor has In mind any such betrayal of those j who voted for him on his pledges to I reorganize and establish economy in I Iowa government. "There Is 'between the governor I and the electorate which elected him something that Is far greater than I the difference between the salary of I a governor of Iowa and the post- I mastership at Des Molnes. It is'by Jway of a trust placed in him by I those who elected him, a democrat [governor of a republican state. "It would be a flat ending to a I political ambition long held and fln- lally accomplished if the governor [were to trade the governorship for la postmastershlp, a disappointment (to his constituency, and outside the 1 character and repute of Mr. Her- |rlng." In Plain Talk's story the T.-!R.'s I fears are set at rest on the govern- Jor's own authority, but the bunk [about Dickinson remains unexp-laln- [ed. Plain Talk said: "Political circles at the statehouse [were In something of a turmoil [Wednesday, when a report was cir- Jculated among the officers and [members of the legislature to the I effect that Senator Dickinson was [about to resign from his post, and [that Governor Herring was also to [resign and to be named as successor I to Dickinson by Lieutenant Gov- Jernor Kraschtl, when he assumed |the role of governor. "It was hard to trace the rumor any official source, but Governor Herring soon set it at rest by issu- ling a statement to the effect that Ithe people had elected him to the •governorship and not as United |States senator. 'I would not accept a seat ii^ he senate,' he said, 'If for any reason it should be offered me, during ny term as governor'." They must have been resting from [arduous labors at tax reduction and 'ax reform at the statehouse the lay these fairy stories were spread.

Of course there are districts n the bum order, but In the main esidonce districts the homes are of eal architecture, surrounded with hrubbery carefully sot out, which nakes a most beautiful setting for . home. (But hero is the sad part of t: I am told that many have lost lielr equities in these homes during his depression. Seemingly, San Antonio ought to •rosper, with an immense payroll rom the government every month. "'he Sam Houston post is a town in :self, a wonderful place. (Besides, here are many air fields supported y the government. Randolph field s 16 miles east, and I am told that he government is spending $25,00,000 to build there "the West 'oint of the air," the world's largest military air center. Uncle Sum Helps Clly. Just outside of the San Antonio mits Is Kelly Field, great war time ir training center, now supplement- d by iBrooks, Dodd, and Duncan ields, all close to the city. And this sn't the only place in the country rtiich profits from a largo goVern- nent payroll, so one can readily see 'hy it is a difficult problem for ongress to agree on a scaling down military expenditures. Travel in San Antonio is somewhat ifflcult because of many crooked treets, but, using a city map, we nanage to get around. The Alamo nd the 'Missions strung along the outh ILoop (a paved road 14 miles )ng) are interesting places to visit. ne wonders how they managed to ulld such large stone structures ithout modern means of transportation. Off for "the Vulley." We recently made a trip to Corpus Christ! and Brownsville. We were curious to see oranges and grapefruit on the trees, and we had been told that "the Valley" was now at its best. We found it truly great. 'Leaving San Antonio we found lit opens tie of Interest till we passed through oil fields 65 miles southeast. One we attempted to count the number of wells In sight, but gave It up. From San Antonio out the coun try Is pretty much the same, mostly covered with a growth of mesquite trees and brush with here and there ,n piece of land cleared and undet cultivation. The soil, with few. ex •oeptlons, looks very light and sandy This was true till we reached a -point 25 or 30 miles north of Corpus Christl,.where we ran out of the brush country and into the most fertile and the most beautiful land to look at In all our travels. It's a perfec-1 garden on a large scale for a dis- tan,ce of 25 miles, I judge. Rows of vegetables reach out on both sides of the road as far as you can see some, of it advanced to a growth Cooking School PlansHttature OLD ASSEMBLY ROOM AT THE BRYANT, PLACE Schools Draw 400 at Spencer on the 2nd Day Friday. Plans for the third annual Advance cooking school next week Thursday, Friday, and Saturday are going forward rapidly. The assembly room in the Bryant building has been leased for the school. The seats formerly there were taken out, which is an advantage, for the old seats were fastened :lown, which limited the number.of people who could bo accommodated 'n the room. Party chairs will be used, and there will be special equipment for cooking and demonstration purposes. Local merchants will be invited to contribute special displays o£ ntercst to women. Final announcements will be made next week. Prizes Given Each Day. Of particular interest will be prizes which will be awarded every day. There will be a considerable number >f awards. There will be nothing to lay; everything will be free. D. E. Dewel, Advance managing editor, and Mrs. H. M. Smith, local and society reporter, drove to Spender Friday afternoon to see Gladys Looney, the cooking school demonstrator, in action.

South of Portland/ five miles north of Corpus Christ!, we got our first sight of the bay off the Gulf, and for some distance we traveled on a paved road with water on both sides. The bay extends farther west, and this road is three to four feet above the water. After we had covered several miles, the sight of so much water on both sides rather got on the nerves of Mrs. Ogren, and she asked how I felt. I don't recall what my answer was, but knew I had to put up a bold front. Night at Corpus Chrlstl. About this time we ran outo a bridge two miles long across a neck of water. Once over, we were at the north end of Corpus Christ!, on flat and less than four feet above water. On assurance that there was no :roplcal storm or tidal wave in light, we decided to stop there over night. In 19'19 this part of the the city vas swept clean In a tropical storm, and many lives were lost. Between his part and the larger part of the city is a dredged channel, spanned >y a large drawbridge to let sea gong vessels into still water. Across his bridge one can retire to high ground and feel safe from breakers coming in from .the bay. As in other Texas cities there are many beautiful homes here. The population is 27,741. Next morning we traveled west to Bobstown, south to ORIviera, and west to iFfclfurrlas, where we changed to U.

Some idea of the range of prizes which will be awarded may be gained from the fact that when Miss Looney conducted a recent school at Eagle Grove the list took up more than a column In the Eagle Grove Eagle. At Spencer Friday it was said that interest was growing and that indications promised an attendance of 600 on Saturday, the last day. Miss Looney closed a school at Rock Rapids yesterday, and opens one this morning at Sheldon. 'She will be at Emmetsburg nex't Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. ACADEMY TEAM BEATS FORT DODGE 36-34 The St. Cecelia's academy basketball team was defeated 28-20 Sunday afternoon by St. John's Bancroft, on the home floor, after the locals had outdone themselves two days before against the Sacred Heart academy boys of Fort Dodge, whom they defeated, 36-34, in an overtime period. In this game Junior Kelly sank the winning basket Wade Hanson played an excellent rame Sunday against Bancroft, but the locals were slow in contrast with their work Friday evening. Coach E. J. Butler and the academy team went to Fort Dodge yes- :erday for an annual diocesan tournament yesterday and today. In the first round the locals drew a bye, but last night the team was scheduled to play the winner of a Dan- Jury-Varina game. Ogren Had the Card But Alas 'Twas Unsigned With his letter for today's Advance, Albert Ogren sent the curd of the Bohemian club, N. Laredo Tamps, Nick Buccaro, proprietor. "X. Laredo" seems to mean "North Laredo," a town In Texas, but. what, "Tamps" means Is a mystery here. However, what attracts attention Is something else, to-wit, a "permit" on the back, as follows "This Is to certify that I, the legal wedded wife of Mr... , permit my husband to HTO where lie pleases and play cards and get drunk as often as he wants to, and I also permit him to keep and enjoy (ho com- puny of any lady or ladles he sees fit, for I knotv he Is a good judge. Bui, I want him to bowl on the Grand Alley, and patron- ho the Bohemian club, I want him to, for' ho will be a Ions' time dead." It was noticed with Interet that Sirs. Ogren hadn't signed the permit! PAINE & SORENSEN JOIN J!G_ SYSTEM B. P. Sorensen, of the Paine & Sorensen drugstore, announces that the store has joined the Walgreen drug system and now has the agency for this nationally known line of drugs and toilet articles. The complete line, with special window displays, is being featured this week in in opening sale. Ownership and management of the store are not affected by the change. The Walgreen line is an iddltion to lines ajready handled by the store. Mr. Sorensen has definitely decided to keep the store in the new ocation in the Algona hotel build- ng block. He will therefore not return to quarters next west of the 'ormer County Savings bank build- ng, which he recently left following a fire. Mr. Sorensen's opening announcement says that "modern methods of merchandising and savings hereto^ore available only in the larger ci- ies are brought to the people of Alrona and the surrounding commun- ty by our new connection with kValgreen's." The Walgreen system, now 26 rtars old, owns and operates more han 450 stores, and in 1932 did a gross business of '$54,000,000. Meth- ids of operation of city stores are lassed on to Walgreen stores operated by independent merchants. ANNUAL MEET OF COMMUNITY CLUB MONDAY Club Invited to Join in Farm Phone Rate Fight.

Fred Geigel, A. E. Clayton, Wil Ham Runchey, and Ray McCorkle representing a committee of patrons of rural telephone lines out of Al gona, presented to the board an invitation to have the' club join with the farm group in the latter's battle with the telephone company for lower switching fees. The committee urged that though problems confronting farm and town patrons are different, yet each would gain by joining in the battle. In the presentation it was emphasized that rural patrons have nothing against Manager E. C. Hancher, of the local exchange, but do fee that officials above him ought to permit a reduction from $6 to $4 a year. The rural companies maintain their own lines, expense 'being charged back to subscribers pro rata. At present the reduction in number of patrons, caused in part by the $6 switching rate, is raising the pro rata of remaining patrons to a point where they, too, will have to give up their phones. Maintenance cost increases poportlonately as number of patrons decreases. Committee to Study Phone Rates. Following discussion the following motion was passed by the board: "Moved and second that the Community club appreciates the courtesy of the invitation of the rural phone lines and that president be instructed to appoint a committee to confer' with the telephone company and report at the annual meeting." This committee is to be appointed today by President Pool, and it will report at the annual meeting next Monday night. After discussion of a gasoline-alcohol bill pending in the house at Des Molnes telegrams were ordered dispatched to Sen. Geo. W. Patterson and Representative A. H. Bonnstetter stating that the club board favored passage. The bill provides that all gasoline sold for motor purposes in the state contain a percentage of commercial alcohol manufactured from Iowa farm products.
