By Alice Payne. A mass meeting of the "Kossuth County Allied Temperance Forces" was helld at the Algona Methodist church Tuesday, 10 a. m. to 3 p. m. The meeting was called to order •by the temporary chairman, the Rev. W. G. Muhleman, Algona, who said that the object was to perfect a county organization of dry forces to fight repeal of the 18th amendment. The (Rev. S. H. Aten, Burt, Presbyterian pastor, then gave a*'scripture reading and offered prayer, alfter which Mr. Muhleman further explained the object of the meeting and told of recent national ami state dry conferences at Washington, D. €., and Des Molnes respectively. Judge W. B. Quarton spoke briefly, explaining the law on the beer question. WIndell Named County Chairman. Each precinct of .the county represented at the meeting chose one person to serve on a nominciting committee for officers of a permanent county organization. Officers •were elected as follows: County'chairman, W. S. WindeH, Algona; woman's chairman, Mrs. J. H. Warburton, Lakota; chairman for youth, Mrs. Wm. Welsbrod, Fenton; secretary, Mrs. Frank Geigel, Algona. Three committees were chosen: Ways and Means, H. L. Gilmore, Algona, J. S. Skow, Of Wesley, the Rev. Fremont Faul, Titonka; caucus and election, Judge W. B. Quarton; publicity and,information, W. C. Dewel and the Rev. C. V. Hulse, Algona, Supt. Donald Weir, Burt, Mrs. W. J. Cotton, Lone Rock, S. Clemans, Lakota/Willis Phelps, Titonka. Gladstone In Opening: Talk. W. S. Windell, chairman, opened the afternoon meeting and expressed a wish for willing, energetic Helpers. He reminded the audience there is but two months in which to work, the election on the repeal question having been set for June 20. Mr. Windell introduced the Rev. S. M. Gladstone, Lone Rock, who gave a short, snappy address in which he made light of wet claims. He cannot understand why people want to repeal the 18th amendment. They did not want hard iliq- uor back; they don't want the saloon back—'they admit it. They don't want Intoxication, Mr. Gladstone continued. Breweries are even working for a dry drink. Folks who have before been wet are now turning "dry" over night. They want to give the people a non-intoxicating drink! Pastor Hulse Speaks. The Rev. C. V. HuJse /began by quoting Judge Quarton and saying, "It is the same old story, the same old fight. ''In my few minutes I want to impress that fact. I suppose we are wondering whether it will be a fight to the finish or a finish to the fight.." Mr. Hulse displayed a full page of pictures in the Des Moines Sunday Register of November 19, 1932, showing 38 members of the "Board Opposed to the 18th Amendment" in Iowa, and said: "If we follow this group of men we are going to have worse saloons than in the old days. They may insist that this will not be so, that the saloon will not come back; but that is only to call a skunk by another name, when the smell is the same." Mr. Hulse wound up by saying: "It is going to be a hard fight, but if we are to go down we are going to go down fighting." Hueser Says Faith Needed. ' The Rev. A. H. Hueser, Algona Baptist pastor, said that lack of faith and trust in God had brought about present conditions to the United States. There are three times as many auto accidents Sun- Drys (Continued on page 8.) Algona Ball Team Being Organized Nearly 20 prospects for a town baseball club gathered Friday evening at the Legion hall to discuss plans for the season. Stewart McFadden was again made manager -Practice will start soon, and interested players are urged to report early. The team will consist entirely of local players without •pay. Junior Kelly will probably be pitcher. ^ Paring 1 Holes Are Mended. Two ibad chuck "holes in the paving left (by construction of a storm sewer at the corner northwest of the new school building are being cemented by the city this week. The boles were filled with dirt last year when the sewer was completed, and the ground was allowed to settle. It has now packed sufficiently for the concrete. Nearly 400 Permits Out A total of 389 hunting and fishing licenses have been issued_ to date, at County Recorder J. J- Doo- ley-f ojftce. County School Job Is Contested BANGROFTER WOULD OUST MR, SHIRLEY School Heads Called To Meet May 9 to Name Supt. For the first time in many years there will be a contest this spring on choice of county superintendent. G. D. Hart, superintendent of the Bancroft public schools, is a candidate to succeed County Supt. Shirley. Mr. Shirley is also a candidate. Mr. Shirley has been in office 20 years. His record has been considered excellent. There is no criticism of his work, or at least none has been publicly voiced. In 1&13 Mr. Shirley was serving his sixth year as superintendent of the Swea City schools. Before that he had been superintendent three years at Waukee. He had taught country schools prior to his work at AVaukee. Elected 20 Years Ago. County superintendents were then elected by popular vote. S. J. Backus, who came from the super- intendency at Bancroft, was county superintendent, but was not a candidate for renomination. Mr. Shirley and Frank Sarehett, the latter now superintendent at Sheldahl, north of .Des Moines, entered the primary race. Mr. Shirley made his campaign on one of the early motorcycles. That was ibefore the day of surfaced roads, hut he covered the county thoroughly and was nominated. Then he had to begin over again, for the democrats nominated a strong candidate, Margaret 'Dor- weiiler, then superintendent at Fenton, now of Lewistown, Mont., where she is teaching. . Sarohett was superintendent at Lone Rock. Board Heads Now Elect. Mr. Shirley was elected, and at the expiration of his first term two years later the office of county superintendent was removed from politics. The power to choose was vested in a county convention of representatives of the school districts and the term was extended to three years. Mr. Shirley has been reelected regularly ever since. •Bach school township, every rural independent district within a township, every town independent district, and each consolidated district is entitled to send one representative to the county convention, which is required to convene on the second Tuesday in May every third year. Each school corporation except rural independents must be represented by its president, unless he is absent or unable .to act, in which case the board edects some ot'her member. Rural independents are represented by board members named by their respective presidents. The county auditor issues the call for the county convention. He also serves as the convention's secretary. The official call appears in today's Advance. Seven on County Board. Each county convention also selects three members of a county 'board of education for a term of three years. There are six elected members of this board, and the Shirley Continued on page 4.) 5000 IOWANS ELIGIBLE FOR FORESTATION JOBS Under government auspices reforestation jobs are now available for 250,000 unemployed persons, and it is understood that some 5,000 such jobs have been reserved for lowans. All applicants must be citizens. Two classes of men are wanted. One class consists of a relatively small number of unemployed men, experienced and living in the area where the work is to be done. Presumably they will serve as group bosses. The other class consists of the great body of workers, who are to 'be young men aged 18 to 25 who have dependents. A substantial part of their pay will be reserved for the dependents. Preference will be given to men out of employment who have heretofore applied for work or other assistance. In Kossuth county applications will be received by R. B. Waller, Algona, chairman o'f the Disaster committee of the county Red Cross. Mr Waller will forward applications to state authorities who are cooperating with national authorities. The enlistment period is six months. The work will be done in states having forests. Nolte Park" Caretaker. Athletic park will be under the care of H. B. Nolte this summer. It has had little care since the death of Henry Dearchs more than two years ago, and many of the busies now need pruning or transplanting- Mr. Nolte also has charge of the tennis courts and Is getting them into shape. This Proof of Intoxication, or Ain't It? A test of-the new beer vfas made by an AlgonJnn one night last week, following 'fcn argument on whether it was intoxicating, but the question remained unsettled. The Algonlan, who Is old enough to remember saloons, succeeded In downing an even dozen bottles, but then his stomach rebelled and backfired all over the place. The Algonlan speaks as an, authority In his town case claiming he will never be able to drink enough to get drunk. It Is reported that Ids wife stood over him jmd a companion while they cleaned up the debris, following the noble experiment. Some scoffers who learned of the test have pointed out that In the old days the very fact that the stomach rebelled was considered proof of intoxication. CUNNINGHAM TELLS COURT HE'S GUILTY A. L. Cunningham, former secretary of the Algona 'Building & Loan association, pleaded guilty to a charge of embezzlement before Judge F. C. Davidson Friday. He was represented by his attorney, 'L. B. iLinnan. M. C. McMahon, county attorney, represented the state. A compromise was reached whereby Cunningham pleaded guilty to a plain charge of embezzlement rather than the more serious charge of embezzlement from a building and loan association. A plain charge, on conviction, carries a penalty, of not more than five years in the penitentiary, whereas a building and loan charge carries double that penalty. Bonding Company to Pay. Earned good .bevahior on a five- year term permits release on parole after 14 months' service. Sentence will not ibe pronounced till sometime next week, Judge Davidson having acceded to a request that time be granted. A joint meeting of the Building & Loan oftfices and directors, the bonding company, and other persons interested in the case is to be held sometime next week, probaibly on Monday. The'Building & Loan association will at that time be reimbursed for its loss by the bonding company. Auto Damage Cases Settled. 'Following the plea "in the Cunningham case and a settlement of two other Jury cases set for this term, Judge Davidson ordered the petit jury discharged, and the jurors were telephoned not to appear. Guilty (Contined on page 8.) Sexton Dance Hall New Management C. R. Harris, 6f the Algona bicycle shop, has taken over the management of the Sexton dance hall. The building has been remodeled and has been named Oriental ball room. The opening dance will be given next week Thursday evening, Jimmie Smith and his orchestra playing. The plans call for serving free beer on the opening night. Algona Markets HALF OF BEER FEES KEPT AT HOME BY FIGHT •. * '.-•> ' • Patterson Explains Tactics of Battle in Senate. Doctor Coribin, physician at Lu Verne, sent the following Hetter to Senator Patterson, following the state senate's vote on the beer ibill: "I have Just finished listening to our senate this morning. If you would but think for one minute or reason for one minute I feel that you would not have to wonder if your people here at home want beer or not. You must know by this time that they want beer, and that they not only want beer but that they already have it; but we would rather pay 15c for it and do that without breaking the law than we would to pay 25c for it to bootleggers which is what we are doing at the present time. "Last week on Friday I was at Elmore, Minn., and if you could have seen all the cars there with a Kossuth county number plate on them you should at least be abl,e to understand that we do want beer and that we are going to have beer. We might as well have the revenue from it as to do the way that we are doing now. "Do not misunderstand me now -we are not taking your attitude this morning in a way that will help you in the future." Senator Patterson's Reply. Doctor Corbin may not have uni derstood the parliamentary strategy involved in the senate debate. Senator Patterson pointed this out in the following .reply: "I have your letter of April 13 and note what you say. Especially do I observe the last sentence, "We are not taking your attitude this morning in a way that will help you in the future.' "I take it that you refer to my attitude relatives to the beer bill. It must be that you refer principally to my vote in opposition to that measure as I doubt whether you would 'disapprove my work and efforts, and successful efforts, by the way, in effecting some 'improvement of that measure. "My work improved that measure in two very important particulars. I led the fight to secure some of these permit lees for county use. 'At the present time, the county fund throughout the state of Iowa is the one that suffers the most by reason of the Brookhart- Lovrlen sinking funds in closed banks. Saved Half ol Permit Pees. "My battle to provide that one- half of the permit fees would go into the general fund of the county was successful and applies to 81 rural counties of Iowa, including all the counties in my district. Not only that, but this amendment was of much benefit to the rural people because by putting the money into the .general fund, the rural people get some benefit. Otherwise, they would get none of these fees. "I suspect from the tenor of your last sentence that you did not fully grasp .the significance of my work when I was trying to point out some of the weaknesses of the bill in the morning. I called attention to the fact that Section 39 of that measure had to do with the penalties imposed by reason of damage to life and property of some person who.was intoxicated. Section 39 of that bill virtually suspended all penalties. I pointed out that if the authors of this measure were sincere in claiming that it was a bill having only to do with non- intoxicating beverages, Section 39 had no place whatever in that bill. Why Sec. 89 Was Opposed.

DESCRIPTION ERROR CAUSES TAX UPROAR A description error in the , Haggard & 'Peterson property led to a misunderstanding on the part of Assessor E. H. Beardsley and the city council'last'week, when the assessment on the combined business property of the firm was raised $3,300. The council got the impression that one 'building was not assessed. It is- anticipated that the council will reduce the assessment to its original figure when it meets next Monday to hear objections to 50 raises in valuations made after seven days of argument. According to the tax records Messrs. J. W. Haggard and A. L. Peterson, who own the OMoe & Sjogren, Algona Insurance Agency, Peteron Studio, and Upper Des Moines buildings, pay more than $500 taxes on these properties this year, indicating an assessed valuation of some $12,000. Several other objections to raises are to be brought before the board of review at its final tax meeting. Fight (Continued on page 4.) Supervisors Order Seeds for Gardens The board of supervisors last week Wednesday, ordered the purchase of more than 200 units of garden seeds for the Kossuth program of community gardens this summer. The gardens, are to be sponsored by community organizations for poor relief next winter. The seeds were ordered in unit packages, and each unit contains a variety. Organizations throughout the county are now becoming active, and <work In the fields will start before the end of the month. Persons who have unused plots of ground near all towns in the county are urged to get in touch with the local organizations, if , they wish to donate use of their land for this purpose. Chicks Lost in Blaze, The firemen. were called Saturday morning to the George Dale farm, just west of the fair grounds aui'phitheater, where an oi'l stove in a brooder house had, set a coop on lire. The Dales had bought more than 160 chicks a few d-ays beffore, and these, with nine or t hens, were lost. Tfae blaze was put out without difficulty.

A. Brownell and R. W. Horigan in the J. A. Brownell Shoe Co. will be dissolved May 31, and Mr. Horigan will retire. Mr. Brownell and his son Roy wMl conduct the business in future. Mr. Horigan's plans'are indefinite. Mr. Horigan came to Algona from Lake City, where he had been employed in a shoe and clothing store. He began here with Mr. Brownell just 25 years ago, and in recent years has been in entire charge of the store, Mr. Brownell having spent much of his time on the road, traveling for a rubber concern. A few years ago the store was incorporated, at which time Mr. Horigan purchased an interest. Mr. Horigan has been secretary of the Algona Country club many years. For the present, at least, he intends to continue to make Algona his home. The present stock of shoes and hosiery is to be sold out. An advertisement in today's Advance gives details.

The city council last evening* granted permits to two B a,nd fowf C applicants as listed In the following: story. The rote on each was unanimous. Councilman Get*. gel requested Manager Clifford Frane of the hotel to step forward so that It could be determine* whether he was a fit person or not, as Mr. Oelgel had not met bin. Mr. Frane passed Inspection, ami Mr. Geigel voted yea. The city council was scheduled to meet last night to consider granting permits to six applicants who had applied for beer licenses up to- that time. Applications for B permits for serving beer bad beenl made by Fisher's cafe and the Algona hotel.,, Applications for C permits, which allow sale of 121 (bottles or more at a time, were •made by the Huib Recreation Parlor, the Smoke Shop, the Basket grocery and the Bloom's store. If the permits were granted, all were to .be ready to serve beer this morning. The Kennedy & Pap- sons Co, here has a wholesale permit and has beer on hand in its warehouse. Only Hamm's Pre- fered Stock will ibe available for the present, but it is anticipated that other brands will be on the market 'here soon. Some places were even ready to retail last night, provided licenses were granted. One Wholesale Permit Here, So far as known now, Kennedy ft Parsons is the only Algona firm which holds a wholesale 'beer )pe*- mit. It req.uires in the neighborhood of $400 cash to get a permit and meet other requirements. In addition there is the cost of beer. Beer will be sold in Algona at $3.00 to $3.15 a case, plus a dollar for case and empties, refunded on return. At least 12 bottles must be purchased at a time from Class C permit holders. •plass B permits allow consumption on or off of the premises of the permit holder. In the case of the hotel beer may be served with meals or in rooms. In any event food must be served with it.- Beer sold to be taken from the hotel must ibe in the original bottles with. seals unbroken and must be un- iced. Council Has No Option. Class C permit holders are allowed to sell only for consumption off the premises, and 144 ounces la the smallest quantity that can be? purchased at a time. This is 18 pint toottles. The bottles must be warm, or not iced, or otherwise cooled, and the bottles must be taken 'home ibefore being opened. No sales can be made to minors. Both B and C permits may be issued .by the city, but an investigation of each application must be made by the council.
