Algona Auto Sales Algona Ice Cream Factory Algona Flour & Feed Store Algona Greenhouse Who will be Miss Mary Christmas in the big parade Thursday is still in doubt, and the lucky girl will not be known till she appears in the parade. The final public ballot was announced-Friday night, after one of the biggest votes in the contest, with a flood of ballots sending two girls surging ahead. Saturday's ballots, which even exceeded in number those of Friday's tremendous total, have been sealed, and will not be counted till Wednesday night. The committee in charge has been sworn to secrecy, with threats of dire punishment if the name of the lucky girl becomes known before the parade. These Saturday ballots are now locked in a vault, safe and secure from any marauding hand, and they will not be taken from the vault for counting till Wednesday, when the full committee will be on hand to count them. The meeting place of the committee has been changed, and the place where the final tally will be made is also being kept secret. In Friday's voting two girls, Betty Barry, Algona, and Lucille Bisenbarth, St. Benedict, polled more than 100,000 votes each. These tremendous figures put Betty in first position, and Miss Eisenbarth in second position. These figures mean simply that more than $1,000 worth of purchases in Algona Friday were credited to these two girls. ' Madonna Quinn, who had previously led consistently since the contest opened, had a large total for Friday, but not enough to maintain her lead. Marian Corey, Algona, maintained fourth position up to Friday night, while Gertrude Long advanced one position to fifth to nose out Jane Hemphill, who had been fifth. Rachel Clapsaddle, Burt, showed much strength in the counting last week, and indications were Friday that other contestants would have a hard time keeping her out of the first five. Anything can happen in a contest like this. Concerted work by many buyers in the interest of more than one candidate was in evidence Saturday, as purchases were made and ballots counted for the various contestants. »y J. S. llussell in I>. Jr. Sunday Register. The following questions and answers on government loans on warehouse corn are based on unofficial information but the answers are believed to be correct. The information is given in answer to many requests for details of the government plan. For the sake of completeness, many details previously given in stories in The Register and Tribune are repeated. Q.—How much per bushel can a farmer borrow on his corn? A.—15 cents. Q.—Where does he get his money? A.—'From his local bank, which in turn gets its from the Commodity Credit Corp. Q.—-When can loans be made? A.—Anytime until March 1. 1934. Q.—'When is loan payable. A.—August 1, 1934. Q.—How much can a farmer warehouse? A.—There is no limit. He may warehouse 500 or 500,000 bushels. Q.—What happens if the farm price goes over 45 cents a bushel? A.—The farmer can sell the corn, pay off the loan plus interest at 4 per cent. He gets the benefit of any price over and above the principal of the loan plus interest. [(He pays interest only up to the time the note is paid.] Q.—Suppose the price is less than 45 cents on the farm when the loan becomes due next August? A.—The loan may be paid in full without further liability by delivering to the government at a nearby shipping point the number of bushels of shelled corn on which the loan was obtained. In this case the farmer pays no interest. Q.—On what grade of corn will loans be made.? A.—Number 4 and above. Q.—Where can blanks and forms for loans be obtained? A.—From the state department of agriculture, bonded sealers in the various counties, banks, county agents, or the state extension office in Ames, Iowa. Q.—How is the corn measured? A.—The number of cubic feet in a crib is computed and 2% cubic feet considered a bushel. Q.—Is the borrower asked to agree to sign something that he hasn't seen? A.—Yes, but a copy of the' corn and hog contract is expected to be available within a few days so that farmers may know what it is. Q.—What kind of a crib will be accepted for sealing? A.—iCribs must have a good floor and tight roof. It is probable that wire or cribbing sides will be acceptable if roof and floor are adequate and if crib has poles or studding sides. Q.—iCan tenant seal corn and borrow on it on farm front which he will more before termination of loan agreement? A.—Yes with consent of the landlord to permit the corn to remain there until October 15 1934. Qr—Must corn be insured?

Q.—Can farmer borrow on Mona Dunn SANTA'S LIVING FUNNY TOYS FROM TOYLAND Santa Glaus will be here all afternoon and EVENING.

The county warehouse board retains still another duplicate while the original- receipt goes with 'the note as evidence that the corn is security. -..-....• Q.—May a farmer borrow on corn that lie lias purchased for__ feeding of livestock? A.—Yes, provided he pays not less than 45 cents for the corn and gets from the original producer agreement to participate in the corn and hog production control program. Q.—Who pays for. the expenses of sealing? A.—The borrower must pay for this but county warehouse boards are expected to set the fees at nominal prices. Some have recommended a minimum of either $1 or $2:50 per crib and a maximum of $5. Q.—Under what conditions might the note become due and payable before Aug. 1, 1934? A.—Upon discovery that the borrower had misrepresented the facts in applying for loan, upon failure of the borrower to participate in the corn and hog production control program or if and when corn sells for 75 cents a bushel in Chicago. Q.—How much are Iowa farmers expected to borrow on warehouse corn? A.—They may borrow as much as they wish. Officials of the Commodity Credit Corp. . estimate that 40 million dollars will be lent in the state. This estimate is based on the assumption that most of 1932 crop carryover, which was 7& million bushels, will be warehoused and probably 15 per cent of the 1933 production of 429,780,000. The exact amount is problematical and win depend on the trend of prices and the amount of corn to be marketed. THREE MOVIES TO BE FREE FOR KIDS Manager N. C.

Frank Bestenlehner, of 'Whitte- mpre, was second in the county* with a crib of 3500 bushels on the! Jess Grubb farm in Plum Creek township, when Hugh Raney, sealer for the district, completed his part o£ the job. Mr. Bestenlehner's loam on the 3500 bushels was '$1675. County Agent Morrison, in general charge of the corn-hog program in the county, had only ttorett sets of blanks, and consequently no more corn could be sealed till additional blanks arrive frorot Washington, ': % The speed with which the prS-' gram has been put forward since! approval/of the contracts has left the government printing office far behind, and it is not definitely known when blanks will be available. . j Meanwhile Mr. Morrison's of f icet at the courthouse has been deluged' with farmers seeking -information and wishing to obtain 45 cents for their corn. By Saturday night there were ISO listed in the office as ready for. the sealers. Some of the sealers are making lists to be certain that each has his "turn" according to the time he applied. The county's official sealers A. H. Hundeby, of Swea City, George Hagge, of Ledyard, E. R. Worley, of Lakota, Phillip Wander, of Fenton r Walter Vaudt, of Whittemore, and Mr. Raney and Mr. Schoby have waiting lists of farmers ready to* apply for loans on sealed corn, but lack of blanks has held up all but the first two.
