All city employes were re appointed by Mayor C. F. Spocht and the council at a meeting at the city hall Monday, but a disagreement developed on ro-appointmeni of the two town marshals. The council, which reserves approval of appointments, much as the U. S. and state senates do as regards approval of presidential and gubernatorial appointments, at first refused approval of re-appointment of F. W. Green, da> marshal, and H. S. Van Alstyne night- mars'hal. The vote was four to two, Thos Kain, W. A. White, Frank Geigel and W. A. Foster voting no. Leighton Misbach, new councilman from the Fourth ward, and Frank Kohl- ihaas voted aye. Officers Explain Satisfactorily. Mr. Green and Mr. Van Alstyne were present, and, following the vote, they were questioned. Most of the complaint against them concerned alleged non-action on matters brought to their attention. The officers explained that no legal evidence could be obtained to support some criminal complaints Many complaints are made only on Ill-formed suspicions. In criminal actions it is necessary that papers •be.signed, but often persons who make complaints will not sign. E. L. Harris, former deputy sheriff, was suggested for the night job by one of the councilmen. In the end the officers were commended. A motion to reconsider the vote was passed, and the appointments were approved 5-1, only Mr. Kain dissenting. Jesse Lashbrook was reappointed street commissioner, after similar questioning. Adah Carlson was reelected city clerk, with Laura Mitchell, as assistant, and J. W. Kelly was reelected city superintendent. An Another Salary Cut. 8 per cent salary cut was voted against the entire city personnel. It becomes effective this month, and, with a 7 per cent cut voted last May, makes a total of 15 •per cent. Chas. E. Chubb was named city engineer, succeeding A. iE. Michel. J, <L. Bonar'w'as reappointed city attorney, and Dr. Walter Fraser was reappointed city health officer. Wage Scales Propped. The street labor wage scale was set at 25c an hour, which is 5c under the former scale, and man- with^team scale was set at 50c an hour, which is lOc under the former wage. The council then resolved itself into the board of assessment and review to inspect Assessor -E. H. Beardsley's books. The council was still busy at this yesterday afternoon, and it was doubted that the work could be finished, today. A general valuation reduction of 20 per cent ordered by the state board of -assessment and review, with the fact that both personal and property valuations are being checked, year. makes extra work this S/irchet Sale Tomorrow.

He had been receiving $!JOO a month and asked that a cut to $250 be niiirtc. Needless to say, the court granted the request.

Mr. Buchanan still lives at Al- gonn, driving back and forth dally. SUPERVISORS PLAN GARDENS AS POOR AID i Provides Work and Food for Poor Next Fall. A county-wide plan for gardens this summer for relief of the poor was discussed by the board of supervisors and citizens at the courthouse Tuesday. The idea calls for small garden plots wherever there are vacant lots in towns, also for plots up to 30 acres in the vicinity of towns. -Donations of the use of plots Is wanted. Wards Are Assigned. The supervisors approved the plan and meetings will be called in the supervisor districts to discuss the scheme and prepare for action. Planting will be done as soon as possible, and the production of the more staple products which can toe saved for winter will be urged. The poor, who will reap the benefits, are expected to do the work. Plans for organization here have already taken form. The -four wards in Algona have been apportioned as follows: G. D. First Ward—Hagg Post; Brundage, commander. Second Ward—Community club. Third Ward-^Kiwanis club, Jos. Greenberg directing. Fourth Ward—Rotary club, M. J. Pool directing. The same thing has already been proposed in other counties, and in some of them organization has been completed. Red Cross to Cooperate. The Red Cross will cooperate In the organization of the garden plan and will probably v take charge of distribution of products raised. Everyone who works in the gardens will receive slips for their share. Church women's organizations will be asked later to cooperate in canning and preserving perishable products. A state representative from Ames will probably be here later in the month to help organize local setups throughout the oounty. Laing to Succeed Overmyer; 3d Ward School is Dropped Otto B. Lalng, high school prin- Ipal, has been elected .superintendent of the Algona schools to succeed Supt. Overmyer, effective at the close of 'this school year. No :eachers have been elected. The school board is waiting to find out what economies will be necessary as the result of action by the legis- ature. A matter under consideration by the board is abandonment of the Third ward school next fall. _rection of the new high school building, plus the old Bryant build- ng has provided quarters sufficient ,o accommodate all children in school. The Third ward school tvould remain empty till it is needed again. Jahn G. McDowell, economics and sociology teacher, will succeed Mr. Laing as high school principal. Head Operator at Exchange Resigns Mrs. R. J. Fries, formerly Mayme Betts. resigned Saturday as chief operator at the telephone office, vhere she had been an employe 14 ears. Mr. and Mrs. Fries went to Jioux City yesterday, and will make their home there. The telephone force gave them an electric clock. 'Mrs. Fries' successor is Jertrude Kuchenreuther, who, ince last July, had been night operator, been at Miss Kuchenreuther has the office three years rlscilla Loss, her successor on the night shift, has also 'been with the ompany some years. Membership Drive Begun. More than 30 new members of he Algona Community club were reported by membership teams at a board of directors meeting, at the Algona hotel Monday night. The drive will be extended during the next week or two. All ten member* of the board had dinne* at the hotel. RURAL PATRONS ASK MUNICIPAL OWNED PHONES Petition Patterson & Bonnstetter, for Legislation. A resolution asking Senator 'Patterson and Representative Bonnstetter to support a 'bill in- the House at Des Moines authorizing municipally-operated telephone exchanges; was .passed unanimously by a group of farmers at a meeting at the courthouse Saturday afternoon. The meeting was held to consider reconnecting with the Algona exchange of the Northwestern Bell Telephone Co. The resolution, signed by A. E. Clayton, chairman, follows: Be It resolved that Senator Geo. W. Patterson and Representative A. H. Bonnstetter be requested to support the bill now pending in the House providing for operation and maintenance of municipally-owned telephone exchanges. The resolution was presented by George Miller, Plum Creek township, who called attention to the low rates charged by the Algona municipally-owned electric light plant as an example of what might be expected of a municipal telephone exchange. All Sign Resolution. Mr. Miller said that he and other farmers on his line who receive electricity from the local plant would have to pay two or three times -as much if the plant was owned by a public utility corporation. •Mr. Miller and A. R. Cruikshank, the latter secretary of the meeting, drew the resolution, and, following the meeting, representatives of rural telephone lines added their signatures to Mr. Clayton's, Mr. Cruikshank's, and Mr. Miller's. After discussion a number of lines, through their representatives, announced intention of resuming connections with the Algona exchange, in view of a concession offered by * the company relating to the numiber of patrons necessary for switching service without an increase in the rate. The minimum has been five, ibut this restriction has bee'n eliminated. Even one patron may now -have switching service at the going rate. Toll Charges Criticised. There was bitter comment on toll charges. All rural -long distance ;alls are charged against lines instead of persons. Some lines have not been able to collect from renters or others who moved away. The charges in such cases have to be pro rated against remaining patrons. A number of patrons announced intention of remaining off lines till further notice. They contended that the fight for a reduction in the yearly switching rate from $6 to ?4 had just started and that the telephone company would come down If the lines would stand firm- y together. One farmer remarked after the meeting that it was not the 'tele- shone company which had beaten ;he farmers In the fight for a lower rate but the farmers, who had beaten themselves because they would not hang together. Six Teams Enter Kittenball League There will be six teams in the Algona kittenball league again this summer, and practice .has already jegun.. The teams are now organ- .zing and Idning up players. H. B. Nolle, manager of the league, announced yesterday that the schedule has not been arranged, pending action toy the city council yesterday on lights for the playing field at Athletic park. The season may start little later if lights for night playing bec9nie available for late summer evenings when darkness would end games. The names of the teams follow: Algona Advertisers, Gambles; Holecek (RCA), Skelly Oil, Phillips 66, and Upper Des Moines. Truck Swept from Paving by Current DETER SELLER, Milwaukee truckman, -drove -his truck down hill on the No. 18 cutoff and failed to slow up in time to keep out of the water. The foot-high wall of water sweeping across the paving swept the front wheels of the truck to the south. The truck ran off the paving, and was nearly catapulted into 20 feet of water. This picture, taken by an Advance Reporter, was used in Saturday's Des Moines Tribune. This and another picture in this issue were taken Friday morning, developed and printed in two hours at Peterson's' studio, and were en route to Des Moines six hours after they had been taken.

H. Schmidt and Dr. J. T. Waite respectively, who had purchased them from Emmet Olson, a Fairmont automobile dealer, five or six months ago. The cars were Identified by an Insurance company detective and a federal agent, who have been tracing them for the insurance company. The first that Dr. Waite and Mr. Schmidt knew the cars had toeen stolen was when the. detective appeared and' made it known. The salesman, Dave Lynch, who made the deal, was a former Fenton resident and was employed by the Fairmont dealer at the time. Lynch is a well known former Bancroft character who has for many years been in court frequently. » . Clark Orton Ranch Damaged by Water Water f.rom the hills washed away a private grade at the C. K. Orton ranch south of Algona last Thursday and Friday. The grade bad been filled as an approach to a cement bridge erected by Mr. Orton, former district court clerk who built a home on the flat west of the Call bridge a year ago. The Orton bridge was left hig'h and dry. Little other damage was- done to his place. Mr. Orton erected silt dams across; low places, and the •backed up water deposited almost enough silt to level off his grounds. Harrington on Job Again. T. P.

Cloudy skies and April showers have combined to make the weather more or less disagreeable. Grass is showing definitely green on lawns, and some preliminary lawn work is being done by the more ambitious. Rainfall in March totaled. 3.64 inches, or nearly twice normal, which is 1.77 inches. 'The excess this year is 1.67 inches. The first 18 days of the month were rainless, and the fact that the total fell in the last 12 days of the month was largely responsible for last week's flooding. Nearly 20 Inches of snow fell in these 12 days. A thunderstorm last week Wednesday evening dropped .73 inches of water. Temperatures for the week follow: High March 29 45 .March 30 __54 March 31 49 A.pril April April April .50 -SO -44 -51 Low 36 39 38 31 33 31 32 The mercury fell below freezing only twice. Killing frosts were registered as late as May 17-18 last year. * . Phone Wire Nearly Lays Out Boatman Four men boating on the swollen Des Moines river south of town Sunday almost had an accident that would at least have resulted in a good soaking and might have resulted much more seriously. When the boat was approaching a bridge one of the occupants half stood up to wave to someone on the bank and was caught at the nfick by a telephone wire three feet above the water. Quick thinking enabled him to grasp the wire and lift it over his head before he was swept off. Meanwhile the boat rocked crazily and the other three members of the crew had difficulty to keep it upright. -*Goeders at Des Moines. D. H. Goeders spent the fore part of the week at Des Moines. Flood Water Goes 141 Feet Above Normal Friday's waters reached a flood stage of 14*6 feet above normal, according to a gauge at St. Joe maintained by County Engineer H. M. Smith. The gauge showed a flow of 14,000 cubic feet of water a second at a speed of five feet a second. Mr. Siulth figured out yesterday that Oils meant more than 50 million cubic feet an hour. This would develop SI,600 horsepower hi a drop of 20 feeti or 28,578 kilowatt hours, and In one day would develop 564,763 kilowatt hours. J. W.

Pictures pages 1 and 8 A flood which caused estimate! road and highway damage of $12,000 swept through Kossuth county last Thursday and Friday. Satur* day it began to recede, leaving- in. its wake bridges down, roads undercut, gravel washed out, ancl private property damaged. Heavy rains earlier in the weelt melted nearly two and a half feet of remaining snow rapidly. The snow held back the water till It was all released at once. A cloudburst near Bancroft last week Tuesday night, and raitt again Wednesday night, broke tha barrier, and the flood crest accumulated as creeks and minor waters ways overflowed banks. Crest Friday Night. The main crest of the flood wound around A'lgona's i'horseshoe. bend" in the Des Moines river Friday night, and the water then 'began to recede. The Wallburg filling station and. hamburger stand just north of Algona was completely surrounded >by water three feet and more deep in and around the buildings. Som« 300 gallons of gasoline in storage tanks was damaged when the water; rose above the air intakes. Mr. "Walltmrg a year ago set a stake at the high podnt the water had reached during his residence there. This is near the telephone pole just west of the station to> which a reflector is- attached. Jltw tfioofl Moss imfl Jell. L. M. Meriitt, government er observer, used this mark to measure the rise of water. The, first reading was taken at 10 p. in, last Thursday night, when the water was 22% Inches above tha stakes. Mr. Merritt took hourly readings from then till 5 a. m. next day, and obtained the following figures: 10 p. m., <22% ; 11, 23; 12 midnight, 24; la. m., 25%; 2:00. 26%; 3:00, 27; 4:00, 28%; 6:00. 29%. Mr. Merritt then went home lor sleep, returning -later the same morning for the following readings: 11 a. m. Friday, 34%; 191 noon, 35; 1:00, 36%; 5:16 p. m.» 3«%;'7:30, 35%. Paving Under Water. Water swept over the paving from a point a hundred yards north of the concrete bridge just north of town beyond the crossing of Nos. 18 and 169. The new No. 18 paving was blocked off by the highway -commission Friday, and cars were detoured through Algona on the old road past the Milwau- tee station, Water flowed over the paving on this No. 18 cut-off to a depth of iwo feet and damaged shoulders on both sides. The new bridge under- steel, only three feet from the- floor of the bridge, was lapped by wavelets. Truck Escapes Disaster. A truck owned by Peter Gelder. Milwaukee, en route to Sioux Falla, came down the hill, going west on. No. 18, and ran into the deep current, on the east side of the bridge. The front wheels of the truck were turned south iby the current. The truck was stopped before it left the shoulder of the grade, but • the Eront wheels hung over, and trac- ;ion from the rear wheels was insufficient to force the truck back to the paving. A state highway truck equipped with a long steel cable had to be requisitioned to pull out the truck. The entire flat north was covered ay water, and the No. 18 cutofg bridge stood out like an island in, a lake. Cars were driven through hub-deep water on No. 169 and west on No. 18, guided by steel stakes driven into the shoulders at the edge of the paving. Hundreds of Algonians drove to the scene in the three days during- which the flood was at its heighit, and many drivers enjoyed a new thrill as they piloted cars through the water. • Road to Park Closed. South of town the water swept away part of the grade on the road leading to the Ambrose A. Call state park, and the road had to be closed. The road junction next south of the Call bridge was gouged out by the current, and the road at a low point some yards north of .c-^ Flood. (Continued on page 8.)
