Four of the strongest teams in the county will compete, and the tournament promises to be one of the best sporting events of the season. The teams entered are evenly matched, and none rules a favorite. The first game will get under way with the Bancroft Parochial taking the field against Wesley at 9 a. m. At 10:30 Burt will play Titonka. _The winners of the morning session will meet in a final game at '2:30. The iBurt Juniors will play the Bancroft high school team in a five-inning contest starting at p. m. Parochial Pitchers Strong 1 . St. John's, Bancroft, presents the strongest mound staff of any of the schools entered, having three o; the best high school hurlers in the county in Hatten, Becker, and Deitering. This factor may give St John's an edge in playing twice the same day, for the other three schools have to hang their hopes on a single hurler apiece. The Bancroft line-up also in. eludes three of the best clouters in prep ball in Becker, Welp, and Hat ten. The St. John's team is prob ably the best balanced of the four Coach Pohlman's team has lost bu one game this fall, and that ti Burt. Wesley's Defense Good. Wesley's strength lies largely in defense. Wesley has a veteran hurler in McCall, and also has a fine fielding team. Titonka, how ever, has nosed Wesley out in i close g»me, 4-3, played early thi fall. Wesley also fell before th strong Corwith team. Titonka has placed second in th county series the last two years and is out to take the county again this year. The team this fall in eludes several veterans, particu larly a veteran battery. Bockelman Home Talent (Continued on page 4.) Baseball. (Continued on pase 4.)

FRONT IS STARTED FOR STEELE STORE Remodeling of the front of th Galbraith estate store building cross the street south from th Iowa State Bank started Monday for a new Wm. C. Steele clothing store to be opened either late this month or early in November. The new front will have a black vitriolite base, similar to the one installed this sumer for the Borchardt drug store. Color scheme will thus be black and white. Instead of the present side or corner entrance, the new front will have a center entrance. The east side where there has been a corner window will be bricked up. The,new front will be one of the most modern and attractive for its size m the state. The work is being done by Cowan & Son. The Steele store will occupy tne •front two thirds of the building. The balcony at the rear will, be removed, and the rear of the present store room will be remodeled for ground floor quarters opening on Dodge street. This will ;be partitioned off from the clothing store. The interior will all be remodeled and redecorated. New fixtures and an all new stock of merchan- dise'will be installed as soon as the remodeling operations have been completed. point sliced to one ost. The score came on Algona's eighth play when iBruns ran 14 yards for the touchdown. Livermore had received the kickoff, but after failing to make first down kicked to Algona. On the next eight plays Algona carried the ball down the field for 16 yards on the first play and a number of five yard gains. On the fourteen yard line, Bruns got through right tackle for the touchdown. ShJacMeford onissec the try for point. A good-sized crowd of fans was on hand. The day was fairly warm and thus favorable for attendance. •Many comments on the sidelines were made as the Algona team made steady gains. The general opinion was that Algona has what looks like a winning football team this year. Though most of the team have had only a few years experience, and some none at all, Algona's playing indicated a better team than last year's and more knowledge of the game. Livermore, with nine men who have three years' experience, had been doped as the better team, and the teamwork by Algona was a surprise. Algona had got within 16 yards of a second touchdown at the end of the half, when a pass to Sell- strm netted a 20-yd. gain. At the end of the third quarter the locals were on the 2-yd. line, 'but a penalty of five yards and stubborn opposition by Livermore prevented scoring. Liverm'ore threatened Algona only once, and that was just before the end of the- game, when the visitors got as far as Algona's 10 yard line, only to lose the ball on downs. . • Livermore's style of play included many passes, and all that were completed made good yardage, but NEW COURT TERM ADDED BY JUDGES Kossuth and all other counties in. the 14th judicial district Will have five terms of court in 1934' and 1935, instead of four; as has been the custom for at least a generation. The extra'term will be inserted in the present vacation per- od between the April and September terms, and will begin here June 18 in 1934 and June 17 in 1936. According to an order entered Tuesday the assignment of the ludges is as follows: James DeLand, April 2, June 18, in 1934, and January 28, November 25, 1935; F. iDavidson, Emmetsburg, January 29 and November 26, 1934, and September '23, 1935; George A. Heald, Spencer, September 24, 1934, and "April 1"and June 17, .1935. 7 * The new court term will relieve the press of work that accumulates! during the long summer period. It will also prevent an injustice in some cases in criminal' prosecutions. At present there is no grand jury from April to October, and a person accused of a crime and unable to get a bond has to wait in jail often four to five months or plead guilty. The new deal will bring a grand jury into action the middle of June. Naturally the addition of a term of court will increase court costs slightly, but not excessively, when benefits are considered. GRAND JURY BRINGS IN 3 INDICTMENTS 2 Charged With Robbery and Another With Rape. The grand jury filed a partial report Friday afternoon. Three indictments were returned, the de- fendent was released in another case, and continuance was asked in another. Indictments were voted against Fred Beitz and .Merle Cooper, North End youths, on charges of robbery with aggravation. It is alleged that the pair held up Henry (Fisher, Swea City, near Bancroft last summer. A true bill was also voted against Victor Tripp, Algona, on a charge of rape. No bill was found against Thomas Loeb, Swea City, charged with concealing stolen property, and he was released. A charge against L. E. Evans was continued. Canada Case Held lip.

It is believed that the governor was wanted in connection with the James E. Canada case, in which 1928, 1930, and 1932 primary election poll books were secured by Canada, he said, to have photo- static copies made for evidence in. the removal proceedings. In the 1928 and 1930 elections Mr. Goeders did vote in the republican primaries, but in the 1932 election Canada is charged with forgery of! he voted democratic.

Goeders from the state game and fish commission. The final report of the grand jury is scheduled for Tuesday unless developments cause the jury to be held for further deliberations. Criminal Cases for Trial. Two criminal cases are slated for trial, one a charge of breaking jail against George Lappe, the other a robbery charge against Fred Beitz, the North End youth accused with Merle'Cboper of 'fo'SBing " Henry Fisher, Swea City. These cases will pro.bably be tried when the civil jury cases have been disposed :of. If further indictments are voted Algona, was changed from democrat to republican. Canada claimed, when he secured the poll book from County Auditor E. J. Butler, that he was investigating for the governor's office. At that time there was a concerted effort to remove Mr. Goeders from book was returned the designating mark had .been changed to republican. The grand jury is being held over this week, because of .rush of business, and it is believed that the governor will again come. be asked to by the grand Jury there may other criminal cases for trial this term.

Damage Suit Ends in Costs Judgment Against Plaintiff A directed verdict ended a dam-j age suit brought by Prank Lang against Peter Kollasch Tuesday, when Judge DeLand held in favor of the defendant and taxed costs of some |50 to the plaintiff. The case arose from an auto crash north of Whittemore, and Mr. Lang asked f 260 damages. Mr. Kollasch counter-claimed for $126. Both alleged negligence.

In a cross petition Mr. Shilti asked judgment of $974.90 agains Mrs. Ward for taxes, interest, an< other costs.
