f»AQE FOUR TOWN TEAM DOWNS SAC CITY ELEVEN 24-0 HERE SUNDAY Retrieving, in a measure, local disappointment over the high school team's performance at .Estherville Saturday, the Algona Independent football squad walked all over the Sac City Firemen, 24-0, Sunday afternoon before a small crowd at Athletic park. The Sacs were handicapped -through having lost their regular -center, and two of AQgona's touchdowns resulted from poor passes from the visitors' center. One of the Sac City regulars was forced out of the game with a broken -nose. In the first quarter the Algon- ians worked the ball to the Sac 8 ywd line, but it was lost there on « fumble as the quarter ended. On -tlie opening play, of the seconc quarter a 'bad pass was muffed b) -Sac City, and Algona recovered be hind goal for a touchdown. A few minutes Jater the trick was repeated when the ball was on *he 20-yd. line in Sao City's pos •esion. Sac City was preparing to fiunt but the center tossed the bal over the kicker's head, and Algona again recovered behind goal for a second touchdown. In the third quarter Algona made several successful passes, one 01 •which was grabbed for a 20-yd xun for a touchdown. In the final •quarter another series of passes took the ball to the Sac 3-yd. line where it was plunged over. Two pAace kicks, a pass, and a xlropkick failed to make extra .points in the four touchdowns. Neither team was able to make downs through the line, both of which -Jrold gains, to a yard or so and often "threw the opposing ball-carrier for losses. .

' A few days ago I halfway promised you a criticism of the Advance as a newspaper — at your request, of course. But, on looking over copies of the papers you sent me, I find it too good to criticize. •I like the farm field notes. The way you handle country correspondence is practically perfection, making allowance for a bit of human nature in the correspondents, of course, I enjoyed reading the "Colyum" by Allen, and the local editorials with pertinent matter clipped from editorial pages of exchanges is of high quality. But why play down your editorial page material the way you do? Why not emphasibe it and display It typographically for what it is worth? There must be a case of false modesty in your newspaper somewhete. ' •; ' Your society news is good, what there is of It, but you are only skimming the surface, merely tapping a good source of news In a small way. See the Knoxville Express for possibilities along that line — yet Knoxville Is not a larger town, nor a more social one, if I have my statistics right. The names of the' editor and publisher and of the managing editor should invariably appear . In the editorial flag. Tho coverage of major news is excellently done. You don't need to take these criticisms seriously, but you asked for them and I promised to come through, so there«you . are. ' ' STAR MAIL ROUTE TO MJJROPPED For some time there have been two star mail routes west out of Mason City on No. 18. One was a through route to Algona; the other, from 'Emmetsburg to Mason City, was broken at Britt, the halves served by different carriers. The through route has now been discontinued, which lets out of a lob Everett L. Harris, former Kossuth deputy sheriff who moved to Clear Lake when he became carrier a few months ago. On the divided route the section from Mason City to Britt 'has Just jeen let to Walter C. Post, Clear L,ake, former Algonian, brother of H. W. Post, Algona. He leaves 'Mason City at 12:30 p. m. and reaches Britt at 2:30. There he connects with the carrier from Britt to Em- j metsburg, who is an Emmetsburg man, and gets back to Mason City at 5 o'clock. This gives convenient service for mail west, not so good for mail east, for the Emmetsburg carrier goes through Algona at 8:30 in the morning, returning at 3 in the af- ernoo.

WEST BEND'S BANK TO CHANGE HANDS West Bend was taken by pained surprise three'weetts"ago, when'it became known that the Iowa State bank—the name is the same as that of the Algona State bank, but the two institutions are not connected—contemplated going out of business. This is one of the new banks, and it has been so well managed that it was one of the first banks in Iowa to be released from all restrictions after last spring's banking holiday. From the standpoint of soundness there is no reason why it should liquidate. The bank has liquid assets enough to pay all depositors in ' ill. It turns out that other considerations brought about the decision. Fred J. Figge, the president, lives at Ossian and felt that he wae too far away to exercise adequate supervision. The cashier, E. H. Klisart, apparently has a more desirable opportunity. '•'When'the'jfews got - about a movement to buy the bank and keep it running was undertaken. This, was successful,-:and control" has passed to local persons, chief among whom are W. H. Daubendiek and A. J. Jensen. Mr. Daubendiek has all along been a director. Mr. Figge and Mr. Klisart have consented to retain ownership of enough shares to remain members of the board of directors and Mr., Klisnrt will continue as cashier full. for thj next three months. A special meeting of the stockholders has been called for October 14 to reduce the bank's capital from $25,000 to $15,000. NEW RRICK HOUSE IS BUILT ON S, JONES ST.
