White on a charge of assault on Julius ' Juchem, Bancroft farm youth whose Jaw was broken in a recent altercation In the street in near the Green Lantern night club at Hobarton. At the hearing it developed that Setchell and another youth were engaged in an argument. Witnesses testified that Juchem interfered and that Setchell, the object of Juchem's attack, hit him with his fist, in self-defense. •Contrary to a previous report, there was no girl in the case, and Setchell and the other youth were not fighting, 'according to the testimony. The witnesses said they thought Juchem was drunk. Juchem and his brother testified that neither knew Setchell before the episode. Justice White said he bound Setchell to the grand jury in order that the case might have a complete investigation. The bond was fixed at a nominal amount, $300, which Setchell furnished.

Another snow storm Friday and Saturday gave Algona and vicinity six more inches of snow by Satur day morning. It followed a slow drizzle which turned into a heavy wet snow late in the afternoon, This fall amounted to .25 Inches o£ water when measured at 7 o'clock Friday evening and .35 inches measured Saturday evening. This six inches pushed the total fall to more than 20 inches in 12 days. The moisture in all snow this month totaled 2.97 inches. Added to the moisture this month will be rain of yesterday forenoon Algonians were awakened 'by a spring downpour with thunder and lightning. The rain followed several days of warm weather during which most of the snow melted and ran off. The snow last week lasted long enough for much of the frost to leave the ground, and already a great number of potholes have appeared in graveled roads. The board of supervisors is this week publishing an embargo notice, and signs are 'being posted on graveled main roads to warm against heavy loads. Gravel is being dumped In pot-holes as needed. A slight change from a deadened appearance to a light green could be noticed yesterday in lawns. Spring birds are still fairly scarce, but robins indicate that spring is just around the corner. Temperatures for the last week follow: High Low March 22 — 34 11 March 23 42 March 24 36 March 26 40 March 26 39 March 27 38 March 28 , 45 18 23 27 25 23 25 SECRETARY FACES SHORTAGE CHARGE A. L. Cunningham, secretary of the Algona Building & Loan association for the last several years, was arrested Friday, March 10, by Sheriff Carl Dahlhauser on a iharge of larceny by embezzlement of Building & Loan funds. The hearing was postponed, first -'to March 14, again postponed till last Friday, when Mr. Cunningham was bound to the grand jury by Justice White. The Information signed by A. L. Peterson, Building & Loan president, who alleged that Mr. Cunningham was $2,000 short In his accounts. The Building & Loan books were turned over to C. 'R. La iBarre, new secretary, late in February, and the ents lived in La Salle county, 111. shortage was then discovered, it is In 1867 she was married to Charles Ohalus, and they farmed near Somonauck, 111., till 1886, when they moved to Clare, Iowa. Mr. Chalus died in 1915, and since then Mrs. Chalus had lived with the McCreerys. Of five children three survive: Leo Chalus, 'Davenport; Mrs Nora McKinstry, Hollywood; and Mrs. McCreery. Algonians' Mother Dies. Mrs. N. Barbaras, Harpers Ferry, who had been sick several months with bladder trouble, died Monday afternoon and will be 'burled this morning, following services at the Harpers Ferry Catholic church. She was the mother of Mrs. W. J. Payne and Mrs. John Bieser, Algona, who with their husbands drove to Harpers Ferry yesterday to attend the funeral. claimed. The charge is serious, in that the penalty provided (by law Is double that in ordinary embezzlement cases, proplding for imprisonment not exceeding ten years and up to $10,000 fine. This applies only In the case of,building and loan officers. Embezzlement in other cases carries a penitentiary penalty not exceeding five years. It is understood that the Building & Loan stands to lose nothing, since Mr. Cunningham was bonded. • Hall to Speak Here. W. Earl Hall, Mason City Globe- Gazette managing editor and state Legion commander, will be the Rotary club's speaker at its noon luncheon, in the Methodist dining room next Monday. New Lawyer Swells List of Newcomers in Last 12 Years Carl Wander, son of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Wander, near Fenton, is opening a law office on the second floor of the postoffice building sometime this week. He was graduated from the state university law college last June, and has since been doing some legal business at Fenton. Mr. Wander has rented the north or former reception room of the Farm Bureau of- In the last few years Algona has become the home of an excellent eroup of young lawyers, including p A Danson, E. C. McMahon, County Attorney M. C. MoMahon, H W Miller, L. E. LInuan, G. D. Shumway, G. W. StUlman, L. A. Winkel, H. B. White, and now Mr. Wander. Another potential addition to the Kossuth bar is Edward H Parsons, superintendent of the 3wea City -schools. It is expected that Robert Harrington will Join iis father, T. P. Harrington, In the practice here soon. Among "old timers" still in the practice are J. L. Bonar, J. M. Dye, Swea City, W. S. Hanna and his sister, Consuelo Hanna, Lu Verne, A. Hutchison, Judge Quarton, S. E. , E. J. Van Ness, aji Linnan. W. A. MacArthur, Burt, and W. C. Dewel are lawyers, though not in the practice. The death of J. W. Sullivan and W. C. Oanson in the last year or so removed twp of the best known Kossuth members of the bar. Senator L. J. Dickinson is also still listed as an active member, though he has not practiced since he entered Congress. The formidable list of lawyers might suggest to outsiders that Kossuth' had what is known as a "fighting bar," that is, lawyers who delight in trying to court every disagreement they can hatch up: tout this 19 not the case. There are no trials till after the lawyers have failed to efforts to reach a settlement -out of court. v F. Overmyer •y'ETERAN EDUCATOR who will " retire at the end of the current school year after a notable 30- year record as superintendent of the Algona schools. Overmyer Is Retired By School Board The school (board met Tuesday night, and the question of next year's superintendent was taken up. Before action was taken a motion that whatever was done be deemed unanimous and so recorded in the minutes was adopted. It Is claimed that the motion was carried unanimously. It is reported, however, that the subsequent' action was not in fact unanimous. After discussion two votes were taken. The minutes -have not yet been written up, and what was involved In the first vote Is not clear. It is said to have resulted 4-1. On the second vote It'was decided to retire Supt. Overmyer at the end of this school year. The vote on this is said to have been 3-2. It is rumored that the majority consisted of Messrs. Michel and Shumway and Mrs. Monlux. •Mr. Overmyer was called to the meeting and advised ol the result. He was given an opportunity to withdraw his candidacy, and at first agreed to do so, but later decided to go down with colors flying and so withdrew consent. There seems to be an understanding that Otto B. Laing, high school principal, will be the next superintendent. 'Mr. Overmyer has -been superintendent 30 years, lacking six months. Algonian Sentenced for Drunken Spree John Johnston was given a 30- day suspended county Jail sentence in the H. B. White justice . court Saturday on the charge of intoxication at Whittemore Friday. He was brought to Algona. by Theodore Knecht, Whittemore constable, and Sheriff Dahlhauser, after he had broken into the L. W. Swanson furniture store. He broke two windows in the store and suffered severe cuts on his hands. Damage to the store in the sum of $90 . or thereabouts was paid, along with the court costs. He was paroled during good 'behavior to his father. * ~ Kiwanians Discuss Election 'Privately' At the Kiwanls club's noon luncheon last Thursday there was a ^"closed" discussion of the candidates for the city election this week Monday/ The discussion was secret in that anything said was not to be repeated outside the club, and the rule was adopted to provoke freedom of speech. Reporters, in accordance with gridiron custom at Washington, D. C., were not "present." Members entered into the spirit of the thing, and the discussion was both animated and informative. * Cunningham & Lacy Business to Kruse H. N. Kruse, former county treasurer, who opened an insurr ance office above the Iowa State jank January 1, has purchased the 3unningham & .Lacy business and :lie expirations, and has engaged Dorothy Samson, 'stenographer for A. L. Cunningham, In like capacity. Mr. Kruse purchased the business of E. F. Rahm and Eugene Schemel after the election last fall. Before he became treasurer he was for many years in the same line at Swea City. He will continue to conduct his .business at his present office. Conlon Bakery is Sold. The Conlon bakery has been sold o George Wilson, who announces hat it will shortly 'be reopened. The new owner was for some years in the employ of his "brother Lewis, who recently gave up the bakery. Capacity House Attracted to Call's "Men Only" Movie The Call theater was Jammed to capacity Tuesday night at midnight'for the "men only" showing of "She Done Him Wrong." The crowd strung out into the street while -waiting for the second regular show to be completed. The regular run of advertisements opening the show was greeted' with hoots, and catcalls, and at points in the preliminary comedy and a revue number the crowd broke into derisive howls. When the main feature began the crowd settled down. They were allowed to smoke, cigars being presented at the door. The interior of the theater became so fogged with smoke that the doings of the actors on the screen could almost be seen in the light shaft from the operator's booth. When the show was over and the front doors opened it billowed out as If the theater were on fire. The show was not overly suggestive, contrary to what might have been expected of a "men only" show, and it would probably have aroused no great objection had it been shown as a regular feature. Putting It on as a "men only" show seems to be more of a stunt than anything else. The press of the crowd to get into the opera house was so strong that the fastener on one of the doors was .broken. After the show was oVer at 1:15 a. m. the streets were as crowded with cars as on a busy Saturday night. A truck driver and a local store manager who had- been called out to receive merchandise fire were certain there was a in the 'business district when they drove up town just after the show let out. The story in "She Cone Him Wrong" is based on the life of a saloon-dance hall belle of the "After the Ball" song period, and the .picture depended on a line of suggestive backtalk among the principals in the cast. There is some real value in the show In that it depicts accurately, critics say, the saloon life of the period, with its intrigues, hates, / and overnight loves. There was really nothing especially shocking in the show. Many others here have been more so. The time of night, the "male only" crowd, and thick cigar smoke, and the occasional flicker o£ matches in the darkened theater combined to offer the real treat of the evening, providing a feeling of being slightly devilish. Though this was a strictly "men only" show, a group o£ the opposite sex saw the picture from a private vantage point. There were two excellent short features, one of them in technicolor, done in the modern manner, and some of the chorus girls gave more of a show than did Diamond Lil, the heroine. Men came from as far as Hebron and Lincoln townships, some 35 to 40 miles, to wait in autos outside the theater until the show opened, and all parts of the county were represented. The state of mind of the spectator seemed to determine his reaction to the picture. Some men thought it was "plenty hot," while It left others "cold." If queried privately it is probable that most of the men would admit that the most remarkable ' thing about the show was that so many men could be 'brought out to see something frankly supposed to be off color. BIG VOTE IS ROLLED UP IN CITY ELECTION Misbach, 4th Ward Defeats Herman for Council. NEW FIRM TO OPEN GAS STATION HERE Announcement has made Monday :hat Walter Lorenz and D. C. Malan would shortly reopen the Super-Service gas, oil, service, and accessories station formerly operated on the corner across the street east of the Swift plant by H. D. Clapsaddle. The firm has rented the entire luilding and will operate the gas station as well as the service shop. Tires will be sold and cars greased, ubricated, arid washed. "The well mown Standard OH and Goodyear, products will 'be handled. The building is of brick and ia new, being -one• of the' handsomest stations in the county. The station will have a coined name of its own, "Super-Service Deldutch." The word "Deldutch" is a combination of the nick-names of the partners. Mr. Lorenz has for many years been more commonly known as "Dutch" than 'by his real name, the nickname hav- ng stuck to him from boyhood. Mr. Lorenz has resigned as service manager at the Kent garage, where he has been employed many years, having started there when P. J. Mann, now of California, was the owner. Mr. Mahan has for some years represented the Goodyear Tire Co. in this territory. Dogs Pay Penalty of Life for Life A case against Homer Anderson brought by Jesse Speraw in H. B. White's court was withdrawn Friday. The charge was brought on the allegation that Mr. Anderson had shot Speraw's two hound dogs after they had killed a small dog Belonging to the Andersons the day Defore. The two dogs had attacked the smaller dog at the same time and pulled it to pieces. Gold Turned In Here Now Above $6000 Up to yesterday the ' Iowa State bank had sent to the Federal Beserre bank $45,200 1m gold certificates. Of tills amount between $6,000 and $7,000 was In gold coin. It was one of the biggest surprises locally In the anti-hoarding campaign to find that so much was held here. It had been generally assumed that there was little gold in the county, none having been in circulation for years. How persons who turned it in obtained it is not known. Local banks for the last tert years and more have carried only enough gold to care for anniversary or other minor de* mandSt Gold certificates were, in » majority of cases, of the old sice, taken out of circulation In July, W». . Algona Markets Although the markets of the country were closed part of the month because of bank holiday, a great increase in the value of farm products here can 'be seen in the local "quotations yesterday.
