The question of adoption of resident Roosevelt's -NIRA blank- t code caused general meetings of ilgona business men in different ines last week-end and Monday, with practically unanimous decis- on to sign. Some industries, harder hit than thers by the president's code, are waiting till this week-end, when "Odea got up by the industries hemselves are expected to be submitted. Community Club Acts. Consideration of the NIRA prob- em here was started ,whon the oard-of directors of the Commun- ty club met Friday morning. A ommittee was named, one from aob of leading line of business In Algona, to line up others in the ame lines on uniform opening and losing schedules. The committee was headed by A. E. Kresensky, chairman of the lub committee on closing hours or special occasions, and the fol- owlng additional members were lamed: Groceries, H. R. Sorensen; dry- goods, H. M. Hauberg; garages and allied lines, F. E. Kent; lumber, M. J; Norton; clothing, Leighton Mis- >ach; barbers, C. H. Clement; tobacco and allied lines, John Bie- ier; shoes, J. A. Brownell; baker- es, L. J. Rice; furniture, W. A. foster; dry cleaners, T. H. lolmes; restaurants, F. D, rlathes; drug stores, K. D. James; lardware stores, John Kohlhaas. Barbers Settle War. of the dealers in the various lines were called for Frida,y;,night and-Saturday morning, and by Saturday morning at 10 o'clock a majority had reported a schedule of ' hours to the club board. Groceries will open at 7:30 a. m., and close at 5:30 p. m. except Saturdays when they remain open till 10 p. m. The barbers submitted a written document by which the late barber war was officially ended. The price of haircuts was fixed at 40c and, of shaves at 25c. These figures replace 30c and 20c. The increase took effect Tuesday. The-:barber shops will be open week days from 8 a. m. to 6 p. m., and on Saturdays from S a. m. till 10 p. m. There will be no more af- ;er-supper hours except on Saturday night. All of the barbers but two signed. Signatories are F. N. Baser, H. H. Furst, S. J. Stehle, C. R. and F. J. ShUts, >C. H.

Garages and super service stations will be open week days except Saturdays from 7 a. m. till 6 7 a. m. till 10 p. m., Satur- and 8 a. m, till noon Sun- Market for Grains Nervous; Corn, Oats Up Cent in Week A nervous grain market was 'pegged" again Monday night, following _ a hectic day in which grain prices showed signs of another-big drop, following major drops Saturday and again Monday. September wheat was pegged at 92 1-8; corn at 49 3-8; and oats at 36 3-4. Maximum variations each day were also set, with wheat allowed to fluctuate only a nickel, corn 4c, and oats 3c. Tuesday the market reversed Itself, and all three grains rose the pegged limit. The market was again up yesterday, with wheat and corn up 3c each and oats 2c. The market is still Jumpy, and grain operators are wary, often running for cover without apparent cause. Another government grain report is due next week, and it is hoped that It will steady the markets. The July 10.report was bullish, but improvement in corn conditions following recent rains, and the fact that there was a bigger oats crop than expected, make the August report problematical, which may cause more market sklttishness. In comparison with last week's report the local grain market 'is about the same, with No. 2 yellow corn up a cent, and oats, both old and new, also up a cent. Local hogs are a dime higher on best weights, but lower on heavies, with cattle steady.

Use Extinguisher' and Water to Put Out Misbach Fire A'disastrous fire was averted at the Mlsbach clothing store Friday afternoon at 4 o'clock, wheu M. J. Strelt noticed smoke Just outside .he back door. He ran for a pail of water, and Leighton < Misbach used a 6-gal. fire extinguisher, with the result that the fire was put out without calling the firemen. The blaze started In rubbish and was probably ignited by a cig- aret. It is possible, however, that t arose from spontaneous combustion, for it was in the sun. A strong wind was blowing from the south, and the quick work of Messrs. Streit and Misbach prevented spread of the fire. Little or no damage was done, and the, rest of :he rubbish was taken away to prevent recurrence of the fire. -_—-_«.

In such a tournament two players play together. At the first tee both drive. From then on the best drive is used, the players taking urns at shots, using only one ball. . The fun arises from the fact that poor players are paired with good players. A Dutch lunch followed he : tournament.'

The original entry showed a ietno- cratic'ballot, Mr. Butler says. There are two poll books for each ward, and Mr. Butler immediately examined the duplicate book* where he'found Mr. Goeders registered as a 'democrat. The poll books had been examined by other interested Algonians prevfoOB tar the time they were taken oat by Canada and Blair, and both books then showed Mr. Goeders' vote air democratic. ^ " • " Governor Herring Notified. Mr. Butler immediately wrota Governor Herring, protesting; against the tampering with th* record and demanding to knonir whether the men were In truth th» governor's agents. Governor Her^ring, in a letter, denied that th* men had been employed by Him 1 . However, he did say that the •state- executive council had photostatie copies of the poll books for all' three years. • • • • It will be remembered that ia the first hearing in the Goeden* case photostatie copies were ready to be introduced for the years 192S and 1930, but none for 1932. Tbe entire charge at that time against Goeders was that he was holding office as a democrat, whereas, according to the charges, he was in. truth a republican. The primary poll books for the three years wer» to be Introduced as proof. This Charge is Serious. hearing was thrown out temporarily when the council found It had no authority over the action of a previous gubernatorial appointment. , The charge of falsifying public records is a penitentiary offense. If the evidence is sustained it la presumed the two men will b* bound to the grand jury which meets in September. All these facts have been knownt here for some weeks, but have been. kept under cover till the time was ripe.- • -*- Lu Verne Man Hurt by Thresher Belt Verne, Aug. 1—While he was lelping thresh at his daughter Mrs. 3.
