Corn Borrowers Must Sign. lEvery farmer who took advant- ige of the corn loan agreed that s'e would sign a corn-hog contract. Some farmers did not understand this, but it was printed in the body of the loan agreement and must be complied with. :Jt is reported that some farmers, who gave false statements for preceding years to assessors on the number of hog's raised have been asicing the assessors if the figures coul4 g>e changed sto they can receive full benefits from reduction to tie number of hP£s. It is understood, that this can not be done, Started Mild Weather Plays Heck With Skating Rink Plans Late in December the local Legion_ post took steps for an ice- skating rink for Algona youngsters at Athletic park, (but it was found practically impossible to carry out the project becauae the weather has been too 'mild. An other, factor which baffled the Legionnaires is that the city water is too warhi when it leaves the hydrants and before it gets cold it takes .the frost out of the ground and then soaks down and disappears. The park is well tiled, and the tiling is close to the surface. Thus if the weather is mild water runs away quickly. W. H. Godden, G. D. Brundage, and A. E. Kresensky have flooded the grounds twice. The first time the water was put on with the fire hose too fast, and too much at a time, and took the frost out of the ground and was gone in short order. The second attempt was made with garden hose and light spray- ing. This was more satisfactory, but.unusually mild weather again frustrated the attempt. Mr. Godden recently wrote to Mason ^City for information about open-air rinks. The reply said that like difficulties were • experienced there till cold water from the river was pumped instead of using city water. Mild weather had given difficulty there even with this plan. The park here was flooded in the holidays, but was not used, and the committee is now waiting for a good cold snap before trying again. Water is donated by the city, and the park hoard is cooperating. The football field is the part of the grounds used. To have a good base ice should be six inches deep. The west end of the field, is, however, a foot lower than the east end, and the west end will therefore have to be a foot and a half deep. CREAMERY TO BE HOST AT ANNUAL MEET As announced last week, Algona's biggest annual banquet will be held Saturday noon, when patrons and stockholders of the Algona creamery will "have dinner together at the new high school gymnasium. This is a popular feature of the annual creamery meeting. Last year more than 600 persons attended, and some had to wait for a second table. Another year a heavy snowstorm nearly blocked the roads, but there was a great crowd anyway. People never miss i£ they ca.n help it. Two Director Terms Expire. A business meeting will be held in the morning at which two direc- INDEPENDENTS GIVE COLORED TEAM FROM CHICAGO A BATTLE The Independent basketball squad was defeated, 66-42, by the Chicago iHottentots here Monday evening in a fast game. The locals, who put up a good battle, held the big end of the score in the first quarter and at the half, but trailed two points at the end of the third quarter. The score in the first quarter was 13-7 in the locals' favor, and it was 26-23 in their favor at the 'half. In the third quarter the score was 34-36. The colored boys seemed unable to make much headway against the locals in the first halt, but the third quarter found the locals worn out by fast playing. In the fourth quarter the colored boys played exhibition basketball using fast plays' tors will be elected. The terms of and snapping the ball from one to Geo. W. Godfrey and C. R. Schoby another. Apparently they were are expiring. A. J. Keen is president of the creamery; H. J. Bode, vice; C. T. Chubb, treasurer; and M. P. Chris- _ __, , tiansen, secretary. The officers, ] Emmetsburg, who made four bas- able to sink the ball for a basket at will. _The local lineup included Jennings, Livermore, and Peterson, of the board, and have made the IMr. Christiansen Algona creamery one of the leading models in the middle west, and patrons and stockholders have shown wisdom in keeping them in charge. Program in Afternoon. Following the banquet a general meeting will be held in the high school auditorium. At 1 o'clock Mr. Godfrey, now assistant to President Hughes at Iowa State college, will speak, coming from Northwood, •where he speaks the same day. John Christensen, assistant manager of the Iowa State Brand Creameries, Mason .City, will follow Mr. Godfrey, and Roy Storvick, manager of the Mason City plant, will give a report of butter sales •and method of selling .that will prove of unusual interest. Diplomas to Be Given. At 2:30 Prof. A. W. Rudnick, of Ames, who has attended almost every annual meeting of the Algona creamery, will speak on the com- Ihog contracts and prices that farmers may expect for hogs during the coming season. Mr. Rudnick has been in close touch with the corn- hog program at Ames, which is state headquarters, and his talk will be'timely. Judge W, B. Quarton will award diplomas for oream scoring 93 or better. The Judge has been associated with the creamery ever since it was founded, and is one of its most enthusiastic supporters. » 1900 Have 5 Days for Car Licenses Saturday was a busy day at the county treasurer's office, when $3082 worth of automobile licenses were issued. The number issued this year up to yesterday morning totaled 3088. Uusually there are more than 5,000 licenses issued in this county, and this leaves nearly 1,900 persons to get licenses within the next six days unless they wisto, to pay a dollar delinquency fee for letting the license run into February, Kiwanis Governor to Speak Tonight H. E. 'Rist, P. J. Kohlhaas, Roy BJustrom, and T. H. Ohrischilles spoke last Thursday at the Kiwanis on the club's noon luncheon subjects assigned for 10-minute talks. The Kiwanians will entertain their district governor tonig&t at the Algona hotel, the regular noon meeting hour having been changed from noon to 6 o'clock. kets each, and Willard, high school coach at Wesley, who also four baskets besides four sank free throws. Cosgrove and Walker also played for Algona. No substitutions were made by either team. Joe Lilliard, formerly Mason City, was .high scorer for the Hottentots with nine baskets and six free throws. ALGONA TO BE HOST AT SECTIONAL MEET Algona has been chosen to entertain at the annual sectional basketball meet March 1-2-3, according to announcement in the sports section of yesterday's Des Moines Register by George A. Brown, executive secretary of the Iowa high •school athletic association. Algona had extended an invitation, but! local authorities did not expect the meet, because it had been held two years in succession here. Enthusiastic crowds, good treatment, capable management, and the fact flhat Algona's gymnasium is in excellent condition are believed to have overruled this objection. The winners in county tilts take part in 42 sectional meets. Winners here will go to a district meet, and victors in district meets will compete for state honors at- Cedar Falls. Backus Condition Critical, iS. J. Backus was "brought home Monday in an ambulance from Deal Moines, where he has been a patient in the Methodist hospital three weeks following an operation for Wxe removal of a cyst. His condition is reported extremely critical. CWA Labor Cut to 24 Hours a Week Kossuth CWA workmen have been reduced from 30 hours a week to 24. At 50c an hour for common labor this reduces weekly income from |15 to $12. The hours for the CWS (women) workers remain at 30. It is now expected that numbers of men will be laid off as projects are finished. Unless congress is to extend the life of the CWA it will cease to function •February 16. PROSPECT IS FOR A LIGHT COURT TERM Number is Held Down by Fewer Mortgage Foreclosures. TWOGOOD Lakotan to Cherokee. Peter Jorgenson, CLakota, was declared an inebriate by the county insanity commissioners Tuesday, and was taken to Cherokee that afternoon by Sheriff Dahlhauser. Dr. P. V. Janse served as doctor on the board in the absence of Dr. C. H. Cretzmeyer. Bernice Stock in Accident. Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Stock's daughter Bernice, who teaches physical education at Eagle Grove, fell on ice on the school playground a week ago (Friday and broke her Jaw bone. She is under the care of a Fort Podge physician. Lecture Next Wednesday. TDr. Harold H. Anderson, of the state university, will give a lecture in the high school auditorium at 8 p. m. next Wednesday on an as yet unannounced phase of child development. The attendance of the public is invited. Only 51 new cases have been filed for the January term of court which opens next Monday witt Judge James DeLand, of Storm Lake, on the bench. Present indi cations are for a light term, with few new or holdover cases coming up for action. New laws regarding foreclosures particularly, have tended to force postponement of prospective actions against mortgagees. The corn loans, too, it is believed, are being used to make settlement of pasl due interest and mortgage install ments, thus avoiding suits. In addition a. better feeling among companies holding mortgages, and present promise of bet ter times, 'has doubtless helped to cut down tihe number of actions The decision of Kossuth lawyers to discourage foreclosures has also helped. Two Divorces Granted. 'Four divorces are listed. Two of them, Dorothy Powell, vs. Theo C. Powell, and Sam Hethershaw vs Faye W. Hethershaw, filed since last term, have been granted. Two remain for action: Taatje Buising vs. George Buising, and Albert Doden vs. Evelyn Doden. Two damage cases have been filed. W. R. Reed is asking damages from "L. A. Nitz, Lakota, as the result of an auto accident September 17 on No. 169, three miles northeast of Ledyard. According to the petition the Reed car was forced off the highway into a ditch by the Nitz truck, which entered from a side road. Damages to the car and loss of Mr. Reed's time as a sign painter are listed at $500. Suit Against the Sheriff. The other damage case was brought against Sheriff Carl Dahlhauser and S. Helen and Sarah Etels, of Palo Alto county, and J. C. Koppen by the Means Oldsmobile company, Des Moines, which asks $215.42. This amount is the receipts from the sale of a car owned by E. L. Elwood which was sold under foreclosure and on Which the Means company claims a prior lien. The rest of the actions are foreclosures and note suits, but in the foreclosure actions it is believed that most of them have been brought under agreements between mortgagor and mortgagee to settle up farm indebtedness. Leonard Johnson, Bancroft, Accused of Drunk Driving Leonard Johnson, Bancroft, who has figured in local courts for years, was arrested by Sheriff Dahlhauser Monday and charged with driving his automobile while intoxicated. At a preliminary hearing in the Danson justice court Monday afternoon he waived preliminary hearing and was bound to the grand jury under bond of $1000, which he was unable to furnish,' O. iD. Castleman, Lu Verne, was arrested Monday by Marshal J. R. Farrell, of that town, on a like charge, and was bound over by Justice Danson Tuesday under a like bond, which he also was unable to furnish. Cecil Stoddard, ILu Verne, was taken before Mayor George Tiede, Lu Verne, Monday, and was sentenced to 30 days in the county jail for drunkenness. Moulton is Named as Fair Director Geo. D. Moulton, Ledyard, has been named director of the county fair to succeed Arthur Murray, •Bancroft, who was elected at the annual meeting a week ago Tuesday but resigned, saying he could not spare time to devote to the job. E. L. Vincent has been reelected secretary, and H. J, Bode !has been reelected treasurer. Election of president and vice president will be held here next Monday. Three Games Next Week. The high school will play three basketball games next week. Monday evening Swea City comes with two teams for a double-header. Next week (Friday evening Emmetsburg comes, and the following Saturday evening Livermore comes. Tomorrow evening Eagle Grove plays here. Suffers Eye Injury. Andrew Bowman suffered a painful injury Sunday which may cost him the sight in his right eye. He was working with a power saw, cutting wood, wtoen a metal wire fastener on the belt came off and pierced the lid of his eye, entering the eye ball. The piece was removed, by Dr. S, W TWOGOOD, California basket ball coach and professional baseball player who figured last week in a sports "tempest in a teapot."

Tfce store hours are from 8 a. m. to, «. p. an, week days and till 10 p. m. Satur- NAME TWOGOQB FOR ENTICING 'IT BJ, STABS Charge That Athlete Proselyted Denied by Victim. 'Friday's Des Moines Register stirred up a teapot tempest in the sports world by linking Forrest Twogood, assistant basketball coach at the University of Southern California, with a charge of proselyting two basketball athletes who were students at the University of Iowa. Sam Barry, former coach at Iowa, was also connected with the charge, and iRoger Williams, Iowa basketball coach, confirmed reports that he had notified Barry that the case would be laid before the Pacific Coast conference if the students concerned were allowed to enroll at Southern California. Boys Assured of Home. The Register -said: "Reports say Twogood visited Iowa City at the time of the Iowa-Northwestern basketball game 'Saturday, January 6. The report says Twogood, in conversation with the two freshmen, told them they would 'find a (home in California,' but verification of the report was not available." The athletes are Duane Swanson, Waterman, 111., and Wayne Froning, Webster City, and they left Iowa City last week Tuesday for California. Swanson is regarded as the best basketball prospect ever to enroll at Iowa, and Froning earned all-state recognition in both football and basket/ball in high school. Solem Told, Funds Supplied. The youths were seen at the Iowa City station by Ossie Solem, football coach, who thought he (talked them out of the idea of 'leaving; but they left the next day. The freshmen told Solem, the Register says, that they had received funds for their journey to the coast, but they gave no hint of its source. Twogood is the son-in-law of Mr. and Mrs. M. P. Haggard, having married Eleanor Haggard while both were students at the university. He (has been playing professional baseball every summer and is to train with the Cleveland team this spring. Twogood Denies Stories. Saturday's 'Register gave Twogood's denial that he 'had talked to the Iowa City boys about going to California, He Characterized the report as ridiculous, saying he went to Iowa City to see Doctor Steindler, noted bone specialist, for arm treatments following his baseball season last summer with the Toledo club. There was also a denial that the boys had received money for their trip. The report that Twogood had been at Iowa City last spring was untrue, but he was there following the lowanNortihwestern football game last October. A report that the boys checked their baggage in care of Barry was said to be true. Hampton Loses to High School Team The high school won its second conference B. B. game. 21-16 on the local floor Friday evening 'from Hampton. The game was well played on both sides, and the score at the half was tied 9-9. Fouls were numerous on both teams, and several players were taken out of the game. The second team didn't play. Tomorrow evening the locals will play OBagle Grove here, and next Tuesday night Swea City comes. All remaining games this season are scheduled for the ihpme floor except at Swea City (February 20 and the conference round robin games.
