Algona business men provided free transportation to and from the convention. Last Thursday afternoon Georgia Anne, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Geigel, Irvington township, was awarded a gold medal for having won first in a state 4-H forestry contest. Dorothy, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Christensen, of Swea City, Kossuth 4-H queen placed among the 'high 15 in the state queen contest, in which 97 candd- dates took part. She was in the high .four in a home furnishing .group ot 43 county queens. Three Girls Score Perfect. Three Kossuth girls scored a perfect 100 in a state music memory contest Friday afternoon. Rae, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Koestler, Burt, wrote one of these papers. A total of 340 girls took part In this contest. As prize Rae received a complete set ot sheet music for next year's music contest. As a county, Kossuth placed eighth in the contest and will receive one set of music for the 1934 contest. Five Kossuth girls wrote: Fern Glsch, Union Ailethean; Rae Koestler, Burt Livefly (League; Anna Abbas, German Golden Glee; C. R. La Barre and other officers and directors of the Algona Build- Ing & Loan association were highly gratified Friday morning to receive a certificate of memlbershi'p In the new Federal Home Loan bank at Des Molnes. Accompanying the certificate was a congratulatory letter from Robt. J. Richardson, executive vice president, who said, in part: "It Is an honor and a privilege to be so identified. It is a credit to your institution that you have passed the acid test and have met every requirement. This surely should be very gratifying to your officers, board of directors, and shareholders. It should stimulate your creditable standing with the public also. It can do none other than inspire the confidence of the public in you." Membership means that the Algona Building & Loan association will from now on toe able to meet all demands for loans even if the demand exceeds its own free cash In that event the Building & Loan Financial Report Shouts Algona in Good Condition rom the Home Loan bank on the security of paper it holds. In other words the Building & iLoan can bring In outside m'oney for the development of Algona. The Home ioan bank serves the Building & >oan in somewhat the same way ;hat the Federal Reserve banks serve memlber commercial banks. As the Richardson letter hints, membership in the Home Loan bank is not acquired merely for the asking. Membership is based only on a gilt-edged showing of condition which is subjected to the most critical examination, and it is a great feather In the Algona Build- Ing & Loan's cap to have passed the tests. Mr. La Barre says that at pres-' ent membership in the Home Loan bank was not needed, for the association already has more money on hand than it knows what to do with. Nevertheless it was considered desirable to be In a position, if need arises, to meet any demands that may arise in case a wave of prosperity under the "new deal" PROGRAM FOR FOURTH HAS HORSERACES Attractions Booked to Provide Fun and Thrills.

Mr. Webster, who was driving, suffered a heart attack, and lost control of the car. In the accident he suffered a cracked and dislocated vertebra in his neck, besides cuts and bruises. Mrs. Webster was' first thought to have escaped with cuts and bruises, but two broken ribs were later discovered. Both are at an Estherville hospital, and are reported recovering. The Websters were en route tc visit their daughter, Mrs. Howard Heidke, formerly. Marie Webster, who lives at Estherville, where Mr. Heidke has a chicken ranch.

Hence races were scheduled. In addition to the horse races there will be two extra fast baseball games, one (between Bancroft and Estherville at 3:30, and another game not yet arranged. These teams have been pointing for this event, and plan to win. The base- Iball diamond has been., changed so that'home plate is"directly; in front of the' grandstand, -and grandstand patrons can see the games with ease in the shade. Free Acts Scheduled. On the platform four (big acts from one of Minnesota's greatest amusement parks in Minneapolis, have been secured — the Mann Brothers, ,Radke Sisters, Donohue and La Role, and Mile. Florence. The latter is a high..trapeze, act; with' stunts performed by no other woman in the amusement world. Comedy, fun, acrobatics, and gymnastics of the'most intricate kind are furnished by the other groups, with some new and added stunts not seen here'previously.

This firm is the largest of its kind in the United States, and its displays are truly magnificent. The fireworks will be patterned after those now being shown at the world's fair. Midway Reservations Made. Midway will be filled as usual with the best in carnival attractions, with the familiar favorite corn game probably leading in in) terest.

All other expense items were comparatively small. The city has only $1,000 in gen eral bonds outstanding. There is f23,000 in swimming pool and light and power plant bonds outstanding Isp $3,000 in special assessment bonds. The city itself owns the swimming pool bonds, and the net city indebtedness is therefore trifl- ng, in strong contrast to the .state of financial affairs in many other Iowa towns of like size. The valuation of Algona property subject to taxation mounts to $1,719,252, and the amount fixed last August to be raised by taxation this year was only $27,520. The value of all municipal possessions is estimated at $417,000. Two facts not generally known are revealed In the report: The town was first incorporated in 1872 61 years ago, and the territory included in the city limits is about two square miles.

Burt township, including thft town of Burt, was next, with a 97 dry majority, 208 drys and 111 wets. iSwea township voted two to one dry for the largest percentage, but the vote was light.

Aifter the third inning Algona again took the lead, and ran up ifrhe winning score. Cretzineyer, star pitcher for Emmetsburg, refused to play here, because an admission was charged at the gate. This is considered professional and makes college men ineligible in collegiate sports. Emmetsburg pitchers in his place were Burns, Willingh'am, and Thacker, with Hoabler catching.

The> tabulation hung pretty close to 3 to 1 wet all Tuesday evening, occasionally rising to 3 to 1 when strongly wet precincts reported, but slipping back to 3 to & whett dry precincts reported. Ramsey Board in Argument. Only one heated argument was aroused. The Ramsey election, board rowed over the way in which crosses in the circles were marked. A dry clerk insisted that crosses whose points extended outside the circle invalidated the baJllot, tout nois teachers college. Their car collided with a car driven by W. H. Skene and George Owen, both of Mason City, who were returning from federal jury service at 'Fort Dodge. The car from the south failed to stop at the stop sign, and so ran into them. Mr. Kain suffered a broken rib, and Mrs. Kain a few scratches. Alice, who was with them, was uninjured. Both cars were badly wrecked.

He remarked that t was now 51 y"ears since he left Algona and 49 years since he came here. After dinner J. L. Bonar gave a resume of the public works and other reconstruction programs now being set In motion by the national government as a means of ending the depression. Heat, Bee Sting Too Much for Algonian F. J. Laing suffered a mild sunstroke Monday forenoon, after pulling out a pump at the Haag farm, north of Sexton. He had returned to Algona just before noon, and when he reached the store he felt dizzy. To help the judges claimed this had no effect. A trip to Algona was necessary to straighten out this argument. B. A. Droessler, prominent iRamsey farmer who was a judge on the election (board, came down yesterday morning and returned to Bancroft armed with County Attorney M. C. McMahOn's and Auditor E. J. Sutler's opinions that extension of the lines beyond the circle meant nothing as long as the point where- the lines crossed each other lay within the circle. Tosses Out 59 Ballots. The clerk in Ramsey had insisted on throwing out 59 ballots, of which 55 were wet and four dry. Mr. Droessler was instructed to (Contined on page 8.) Election, den are welcomed, and place is 'plane.
