The first session will open at 1 p. m. and the finals at 7:30. Four schools will take part: Grant, >Burt, Gilmore City, and Lu Verne. There will be .plenty of strength in every weight. Grant will bring a good team whioh once tied Burt but fell to the short end of a 14-11 score late in the season. Barger, in the 105-lb. class, Soever in the 115-lb. class, and Pederson, in the 155-lb. class, are outstanding men from Grant. A stiff battle is expected between Stewart, of 'Burt, in the 105-lb. class, and Barger, of Grant, state, of Gilmore City, is strong in the 125-Jb. class, the only boy wfao has defeated Mattoon, of Lu Verne, this year. Peck, also of Gilmore City, oa outstanding in the 115-lb. class. Burfs Team Strong. Burt has a strong team which haa won six' out of nine starts this season. The team is exceptionally well balanced. Stewart should be a winner in ihis class, for last year he placed fourth in the state meet, and he has improved greatly this year. Carter, also of 'Burt, and Farrell, of Lu Verne, are expected to put up a warm fight in the 145-lb. Denny Myers, Former Algona High School Football Star Is Chosen as Line Coach at Yale Algonians were proud to learn last week-end that Dennis Myers had been made line football coach at Yale university, .New Haven, Conn. No one was more delighted than J. F. Overmyer, former superintendent of schools, who has for many years kept an interested eye on his former pupil. Dennis is the son of Mr. and Mrs. William Myers, and his father has a well known automobile junk yard A sports column story about Myers 19 reprinted from the Mason City GIobe-Gazette on anotli. er page. school course he starred for Algona in both basketball and foot- iball, besides being prominent other school sports. in . »P director.

Pederson, at Grant, defeated Carter early in the season in the 165-lb. class, but up to date Farrell la undefeated. Little is known bere of Burt's strength in other classes, but Coach Bowie always develops a strong, tournament team, and much is expected of the Burt boys again this year. Lu Verne Team Undefeated. Coach iFred iGrabau, of iL*u Verne, will enter an undefeated team which won six matches out of as many starts. Lu Verne and Burt, toowever, have not met so far this year. With a well-balanced club, Lu Verne is finishing a successful season. The Lu Verne team has several undefeated boys. Smith, a strong 85-pounder, has won twice over tReed, of Grant, Batchler, of Eagle Grove, McCormick, of Gilmore City, and Huntley, Clarion, Lichty is also undefeated, having won all five of his matches, and •he will .be a strong contender in the 95-lb. clase. Wille, of 'Lu Verne, former county champion 105-pounder, will wrestle in 115-<lb. class in this tournament. He has won all six of his matches. Up to date his hardest tussle was witih Soever, of north o£ the Milwaukee depot. He grew up here and in 1926 was graduated from the Algona high school. In the local schools he was both a good student and an all-around athlete. Throughout his high CORN-HOG OFFICE PUT UPTO BOARD A group of corn-hog leaders will appear before the board of supervisors today to ask that a part of the courtroom be set aside for a corn-hog office. It is planned to take out a few rows of seats at the rear of the room and build a temporary partition. The office mil be used by the permanent county corn-hog chairman who is to be elected by the township committeemen, ,H. J. Bode is temporary county chairman. The corn-hog county board will use the same office, and an office force will be kept at work during the lifetime of the contracts. The present single-room Farm Bureau office in the basement o the courthouse is too small to car for the number of callers expected The courtroom will be a euitabl waiting place when there are nu merous callers. The courtroom is seldom .filled t capacity in term time, and th court work could be carried on i the remaining quarters. As a rul the only times when the room i filled is at meetings of organiza tions. No court casea recently hav attracted a crowd big enough t more than half fill the room. The farmers do not want to pa rent for other quarters when spac in the courtroom can be had at n expense. Though he was a poor boy he was urged to enter the university, and a way was found for him. iiiere he also made good from the start. iHe remained at the university till graduation and played stellar football, it was said of him that he could play more .positions than any other man on the squad. At Iowa City, as here, his scholarship record was .good. Mr Overmyer was told that the athletic authorities never had to worry about Myers' eligibility, for he- always made good at his studies. After Dennis left the university •ne played professional football in Ohio two years. For the last two years he has been assistant to Coach lEarle Neale, of West Virginia. Neale also goes to Yale as first assistant to Raymond Pond head coach.

Duffy received word last Thursday from Oie secretary of state that it would not be necessary for persona entitled to refunds on the automobile licenses to make application for it. When the 'bill cutting the fees on cars more than three years became law it was at first necessary to make application, 'but a later amendment authorized the motor vehicle department to make refund without application. Only cars registered more than three times draw the refund. In the fourth year a reduction of 25 per cent is made from the list price on which the license is figured, and thereafter each year a reduction is made till this part of the tax is extinguished and only the weight of the car is taken into consideration at 4Qc cwt. LOOKS LIKE 1934 MAY BE DRY YEAR The month of January slipped by without (half the rainfall usuall recorded during the month. MOB of the .49 inch recorded Jell in th first week of the month, and littl was registered later to bring the record to the normal of 1.07 inchei for January. Rainfall for the year 1933 was 7.67 inches below normal, and 1934 is beginning the same way. A tota of only 12 inches of snow has been recorded this year. In October only .84 inch rainfal was recorded, against a normal o: 2.43; in November only .40 inch against normal of 1,55; and in December only .71 inch against I inches normal. This shows thai there is a deficiency of 3.75 inches rainfall in the last four months. Temperatures in the .last week follow: High (Low Teacher Comes Down With Scarlet Fever Margaret (Hullerman, Algona teacher, was taken to the Kossuth hospital Saturday evening with «carlet fever, and SUeona Krampe, who. roomed with Miss Hullerman, is under quarantine for exposure.

Each man traveled luxuriously in a private Pullman on the C. M. & St. P. & p. line, but neither did so voluntarily. For they were en route ito stand trial for kidnaping, and over their heads hang.s the threat of life imprisonment. They Verne Sankey, and one Alkorn. 'Sankey confessed, following a grilling at Chicago, that he kid- naped Charles Boettcher II, Denver, and later kidnaped Haskell John, St. Paul. Efforts to link him with the fatal kidnaping of the Lindbergh baby have been unsuccessful. Heavily guarded by five agents of the .federal department of justice, and in the custody of Melvin Purvis, Chicago, head of the bu reau of investigation, Sankey was loaded aboard a special car at the rear of the Sioux, which had been held up 25 minutes at Chicago for that purpose. The .prisoners were being taken to Sioux Falls for trail are CORN LOANS ARE HEARING MILLION TOP Only $47,000 Needed to Raise Total to One Million. CORN LOADS RECORD. Monday Night, Heretofore BUS.

The box of his truck was broken and the cattle were thrown out. The driver of a 10-wheel truckload of horses following the Faber ruck was also blinded and ran in- o the cattle, killing or maiming our of them. He avoided hitting he Faber truck by driving off an 8-ft. embankment. No damage re- ulted. Mr. Barber and Mr. Metzger ar- ived at the scene of the accident 5 minutes later.

Merritt, county Legion commander, announces a four- county Joint Legion-Auxiliary meeting— Emmet, Palo Alto, Winnebago, Kossuth — at Swea 'City Tuesday, February 27, at 8 p. m. at BANKER RUBEY TO LEAVE BURT; SELLS INTEREST IN BANK The Burt community received with surprise last week announcement that F. E. Rubey had-sold his interest in the Burt Savings bank effective February 1, and would be succeeded by 8. C. Getting, Vesta, Minn. Mr. iRubey, who came from Ames and helped organize the bank three years ago, was executive vice president. The bank has from the first been considered one of the safest banks in Iowa, and so remains. Dr. W. T. Peters, Burt, is president, and J. T. Heaney, formerly of Ledyard, is cashier. IL. E. Linnan, Algona, is a member of the board of directors, and other membera, besides 'Doctor Peters and Messrs. 'Rubey and Heaney, are <J. "W. Bleich, Senator Patterson, and Editor MacArthur. The only board change is the substitution of Mr. Getting for Mr. Rubey. Mr. Getting, who has been in the banking business 19 years, was for seven years cashier of a 'Lamberton, Minn., bank, but of late has been a Minnesota bank receiver in charge of banking trusts in the New Ulm neighborhood. He is married but has no children. Though 'Mr. IRubey came to Burt from Ames, where he was living while children were being educated, his old home was in the Farragut, Fremont county, neighborhood,: where he was formerly a banker, and where, it ia reported, he is now considering banking opportunities. Fremont county is the southwesternmost county in Iowa. the Legion hall. Leo J, (Duster, Iowa James department I. iDolliver, Cedar Rapids, commander, Fort Dodge, , eighth district commander, and others prominent in the atate Legion and the Auxiliary will be on the program.

A registration fee of 25c a person will cover all charges, including lunch. Mrs. Ida Larson, Swea City is county Auxiliary chairman. Three Here Write Short Wave Exams H. M. Vinson, Vaugfon Rising, and Harold Roth, Whittemore, took amateur radio operators' examinations at Minneapolis over the week-end. The licenses will be forwarded from Washington, D. C., within a few weeks, and will give them authority to broadcast on the amateur short-wave band. There were two sets of examinations, code and technical. Mr. Viinson, who already had a license and has done considerable broadcasting here, took an advanced test. Injured in Explosion. f iLone Rock, Feb. «HE?mil Laabs is suffering frpnj awere burns'on hi& face^and ihands caused by tlie) explosion of a Delco iLight plant at bis farm. He was alone at the time, trying to detect trouble in the plant. Burt FarnUr Unfortunate, Burt, Feb. $—The Anthony Jandla have 'been quarantined for scarlet feyer for several weeks; AJ1 jnem- bers except Mr. Jandl wd the oldest son bare 'had the disease, but ^ ' ' Mr. Rubey is considered an able and ultra-safe banker. Auto Licenses for 1934Rise to 5126 Automobile licenses for 1934 totaled 5126 Tuesday afternoon, 176 more than had been issued last year on the same day. This is considered a good indication of better times. .Last year a penalty was attached for January. Extra time this year made it possible for autoists to get licenses at a time when other taxes have been paid and they have the money. Many stored cars last year are again out on the road. The total number of licenses issued in 1933 was 6171, which leaves more than 1000 drivers yet to register. It is supposed, however, that some cars have been junked, probably others stored. New cars will probably make the total for the year greater than last year at the present rate. Autoists still have till Saturday night to get licenses without penalty of a dollar a month. Last week's doubt that the corn loans m Kossuth would reach a million now seems a risky guess, for the total is now more than $953,000, lacking only $47.000 of the million. The total number of bushels now pledged in the county has within the last week gone to nearly 115,00 above two millions. The slackening in filings at the county recorder's office ie now pronounced, and filings promise to cease altogether before March 1. The deadline is midnight February 28. The last week's filings .by townships follow: Burt. A. D. Richards, Sec. 8 Bunt, 1400 bu.

McMahon tiave been investigating threaten- ng notes received of late by Anthony Shaw, well-to-do Swea township farmer. The notes, seven in all, were at Jifferent times left at points on his :arm, sometimes on the porches of his house, at other times elsewhere 1 where they would easily be found. The notes demanded that $1,700 be left at a place five miles north of East Chain. None were sent hrough the mails, so federal authorities are not working on the case. 25 Years Sentence for Sibrel Robber Trank Kesler, 39, Webster City, one of the principals 1 in the recent eibrel robbery and kidnaping at Emraeteburg in which two Algona boys, >Pe}mar McFadijlen and Harold Speraw, were implicated, was tried before a jury in the EmmetB- burg distract court last week and found guilty. Judge Davidson imposed a sentence of 05 years in the penitentiary. It was thought at first that the 1 ;hreats were the work of a prac- ical Joker, but when the notes con- Jinued Mr. Shaw brought them to Algona and turned them over to •he authorities. t Sheriff Dahlhauser is of the be- ier that the notes are the work of neighboring boys, and are not of a gangster type. .Mr. Shaw, a bachelor, lives with us mother on a farm in Swea township, near the Emmet county line, and he has been successful financially. He recently took four loads of cattle to Chicago. Independents Win From Livermore Following two high school basketball games between Livermore and Algona on the local floor Saturday evening, the Algona and the laveraore independents played at were secured. For Tuesday's school 140 chairs were installed, but then the crowd taxed capacity.. with more than 450 women in attendance. Monday and Tuesday** sessions alone had an attendance which more than equalled that of all three days in 1933. The response to Gladys Looney- who conducted the school, was en£ thusiastic, and the fact that many women attended all three days attests her popularity and the excellence of her methods. Ruth Turner.. Algona girl, was Miss Looney's assistant. Business Houses Represented. The business booths this yea* were much more elaborate than irt preceding years. A dining room andl a living room installed by the Foster furniture store were excellent in taste and design. Attractive kitchen and bedroom displays wer4 installed by the Richardson furniture store. .Included in the dininw room displays were goods from th» Bbrchardt jewelry department showing tableware, and a lace tablecloth from the Chrisohilles A Herbst store. The C. & H. store also had a dis- playof curtaina which added to the furniture exhibits. Tie Goedera company, with a display of children's clothes, and Christensea Bros., with hosiery, added attractions for the many women who attended the school. The James drug etore had a booth of Cara 'Nome toilet preparations which attracted general attention. A box of the powder was given away each of the last two afternoons. List of Prizewinners.
