' '' ' Subscribers (Continued from Pago 2.) every issue of the Advance. They wrote: "We like your paper too -well to have it stopped, and so you ml please keep it coming." Editor's Memory Stirred. After many years Mrs. 33. M, (Ethyl) Davis, Chicago, still takes the paper. ".Each year I think I'll stop it, but when the time arrives 1 just can't do it, for I do enjoy reading it and getting the news from the old home." Mrs. Davis was a daughter of the late J. E. McWhorter, Burt-Algona farmer. By way of return for her "trade-last," the editor reveals that when he was a susceptible young man and she lived near Burt he used to admire the dashing figure she cut on horseback. Another from WhUtemore!. A good many home subscribers who renew subscriptions by mail warm the publishing heart with a word of encouragement. Thus Frank Schattschneider, of Whittemore, says: "We like your .paper first rate and would not want to be without it." Dist Supt. Munleman received a (subscription statement and wrotei right back, enclosing check and adding a note that he considered the Advance "a mighty fine paper." Henry w. Schneider, Fenton, wrote, "You have the best paper in northern Iowa." These are only a few samples of the many such encouraging letters the Advance receives every year when the annual subscription statements are sent out. The subscription season always keeps everybody in the front shops hustling, and some letters are inevitably lost before time is found to sum- mam e them for ^publication. 200 Are Vaccinated.

HERE'S DEED FOR FRACTIONAL TITLE IN SIXFIGURES Curiosity of Courthouse Reporter subscribers was excited recently when quit-claim deeds for high fra£ turns of real estate given by j. M. HorbBt wore reported. An example was a deed for a 332040/7477B7th nnn f n m ,^ c un <»vidod share of one of the heirs to a Kossuth county, farm, the grantee being one ^. i>. Hoc, Sioux City. Mr. Hcrbst explain* that the heir in question had given mortgages to Algona, St. Benedict, and Swea City banks to a total sum of $7532.72, and that as a matter of convenience sher- it£ s deeds on foreclosure were is- ?imw m / li? r amc> Tho 1)anks hcl( l different interests, none of them m round sums, so when settlement was made ho had to figure out their shares in big fractions. Mr Hoe got into the picture as the purchaser at public sale of the assets of the Farmers bank, Swea ALGONA TAKES 'A' TITLE FROM SWEA CITYANS ('Continued from page 1.) 8wea Cityans, kept to long shots iby the Algona defense, scored only two ibaskets out of nine attempts, and made two out of three free throws. Algona made one basket out of five attempts, and added two points from four free shots. Both teams ihad equal free throw chances in the game with 15 shots by virtue of fouls. Algona made seven of the tosses good for a point each, and Swea City made five. Accurate shooting of the free throws by Swea City anight have changed the result of the game, of course, providing Algona did not also spruce up on the same feature. AIX30NA. IOWA' Opinions oi Editors Add Com-Hog Complications. Humboldt Republican—A thousand one one little things are bobbing up to prevent the complete functioning and the proper administration of the various moves started by the government. The latest to develop is the failure of farmers who have signed the corn- hog plan to retain the extra help they employed when they were cultivating the farms in the past. Codes Mean Higher Prices. Manchester Press—The printing industry is about to feel the effects of the NRA code in advanced prices of paper of all grades. Weekly newspapers generally have reduced prices heavily, and now are confronted with rising prices. The public always resents an increase in price, hence how to meet the advanced costs is a problem that will puzzle many a publisher. It will have to be done, however, or go under.
