Register Straw Vote Shows Kossuth Wet 346 to 205 Verle, 16-year-old only son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Thaves, Burt, was drowned at Wellmon's Beach, Clear Lake, Saturday afternoon while bathing. How the accident occurred is unknown, for no one saw the youth flounder in the water or heard him call for help, and the first intimation of the tragedy was when Paul Engstler, Garner youth, struck the body while swimming and brought it to the surface. Sunstroke Is Suspected. Efforts at resustication failed. There was only a little water in . the youth's lungs, and it is believed that, the day being Intensely hot, he suffered a sunstroke, fainted, and slipped off a diving float without being noticed. . When found the body was in shallow water, only three or four feet deep. Verle had gone to Clear .Lake with his father, Edward Thaves who was attending a Bankers Life company i convention. He wenl swimming with Edward Allen, of Manly, whose father was also attending the convention. Allen, who had gone to the bath house and dressed without missing Verle, identified the 'body. Boy Was Only Child. Verle had not complained to Allen of feeling unwell. The boy may have suffered a cramp, but this is doubted, because in such cases the lungs are usually filled with water. Verle was the only surviving child ot Mr. and Mrs. Thaves. A daughter, 3, died in 1923 at Lakota. Mr. Thaves and his brother Gus, the latter now foreman of the Burt Monitor, owned and operated the Lakota Record from 1909 till 1914. -In 1921 Edward again bought the paper and operated it till 1928. Two years ago jie moved to (Burt, where the family had since resided. . Mrs. Thaves was formerly Georgia Schmitt, Lakota and Dows girl, In a straw vote conducted by the Des Moines Register, results in which were announced Sunday, Kossuth went wet by a vote of 346 to 205. Votes of men and women were counted separately, with the following results:' • MEN For repeal 182 Against 83 WOMEN For repeal 164 Against 122 Thus repeal obtained a decisive majority of both men's and women's votes. A noticeable fact was that more women than men voted—probably because they have more time to read the paper and go through the mechanics of voting. Thirty-one per cent plus of the men, or, roughly, one-third, voted against repeal, and 68 per cent plus voted in favor of repeal. 'Forty-two per cent of the women voted against repeal, and 58 per cent voted in 'favor. The high woman's vote in favor AUTO MARKET ON UPGRADE WITH 42 SALES IN 45 DAYS The automobile market in Kossuth picked up considerably in May, when >24 automobiles and two trucks were sold. This was the biggest month for the Kossuth dealers in nearly two years. Chevrolet dealers sold 13 cars to the following purchasers: Alton Pettit, Lone Rock; Alice Hirner, W. J. Frimml, Wesley; J. W. Kelly, W. J. 'Payne, Algona; O. F. Carlson, Alfred Pearson, G. F. Deim, Henry A. Moline, Swea City; Fred Simpson, William Schadendorf, Bancroft; Dr. J. G. Ciapsad- dle, Burt; Andrew Loge, Elmore. IFord dealers sold cars to B. F. Sorensen, Glenn Raney, H. J. Van de Steeg, Dale Davidson, Mrs. H. W. Pletch, Dr. W. D. Andrews, and B. J. Van Ness, all of Algona; Dr. R. L. Williams, Lakota; and 'Banker H. C. Schweppe, Titonka. A Pontiac was sold to the Orville N. Blkins, Algona, and E. P. Keith bought a Plymouth. The two trucks was a painful surprise for prohibi- ;ionists. In the state at large 40 per cent plus of the women voted against repeal and 59 per cent plus in favor. This was another blow to prohibitionists. All neighboring counties likewise went for repeal: For Against Emmet 127 120 Palo Alto 126 81 Humboldt L. 73 54 Hancock —' 136 39 Winnebago 64 16 Of the six counties, including Kossuth, Emmet was the only one in which a majority of the woman's vote was cast against repeal. The vote there was 59 for repeal to 68 against. In Hancock three Women out of four favored repeal; in Winnebago, the same. In Humboldt the vote broke nearly even, 40 for, 36 against. -In Palo Alto 60 women favored repeal, and 44 were •against. In the state at large 79 out of 99 counties went for repeal. W. C. T. U.
