SWEA CITY GIVES UP NEW GYM PLAN After Swea City voted, 240-105 recently to appropriate $6,000 from its general school fund for a new gymnasium it was discovered tha the gymnasium, as originally plan ned, could not be built with CWA labor. It was found that the projec would require 102 men weekly from now till May 1 for completion The county original allotment of CWA help is only 322, and this is reduced 10 per cent a week, 'begin ning February 24. Even if every available OWJ worker in the county were placet on the Swea City project it could not be completed. Another regulation prevented fol lowing the CWA plan. No new men can be added to the pay roll Only men now at work can con tinue, and replacements for men will toe made from -men who had to be dropped under the 10 per cen reduction. Also embarrassing was the ques tion how to complete other projects in the county if all the CWA men were allotted to Swea City. The election was held last week Monday, and the money, it is un derstood here, was to .be availaw for material^ used in the project The whole project has now beei dropped, because the necessity of hiring labor would make the ex too great.

SORENSEN DRUG TO MOVE NEXT TO P, 0, The interior and the -display windows of the former A. & P. grocery quarters next to the postoffice are being remodeled for the Sorensen drug store, and Mr. 'Sorensen will nove next week if the work has then been completed. The Gamble Stores, now next west of the Sorensen drug store, will have the drug store quarters in the corner of the Algona hotel building. A new front is being installed for the drug store, and the entrance will be in the center instead of at the east corner. The glass was removed Monday, and the new front is being installed by H. R. Cowan & Son. A small prescription room will be partitioned oft at the iback of the room. An old stairway leading to the basement, closed when the postoffice took over its present location, has been reopened, and Mr. Sorensen will keep his reserve stock there. When the drug store moves the partition between it and the present Gamble ,Stores will be taken out. This was built many- years ago, when the front entrance and the lobby of the hotel were where the Gamble Store is now located. The Gamble store will occupy both its present quarters and the drug store room, and removal of •partition will double its quarters and add much play space. more window dis- High School B. B.

CRETZMEYER HOME GREATLY DAMAGED IN BLAH FRIDAY Fire damage amounting to near- y $1,'5(H) resulted Friday afternoon at the Dr. C. H. Cretzmeyer home, when wires crossing a water pipe n the basement made a short circuit and partitions in the basement and on 'the upper floors caught 'ire along the pipes. The firemen arrived shortly after 3 o'clock and worked more than an hour putting out the fire, which was hard to get at (between the partitions.

The shippers wanted to know how come the United States was letting in foreign beef while at the same time urging farmers to reduce production in order that tfaey might obtain a fair price on the American market. A resolution was adopted "asking Swea City-gro cers to buy no more foreign-pack ed beef, and Secretary Johnson was instructed to forward a protest to Secretary "Wallace. Swea City grocers learned with some astonishment that they hac been selling a foreign product They took what their wholesal houses sent them and had neve examined the labels to find out where the goods jcame from.

This will he the first work of a major nature to toe done on the courts since they were built. The plans call for a four or five inch layer of limestone dust leveled off, rolled, and packed, on the west court. After (having been .soaked by rain this type of surfacing becomes nearly as hard as cement and requires but little work to keep in tip-top condition. Lights for one of the courts were discussed, but the directors decided not to install them this year. Some of the tennis players, however, plan to light one court at their own expense, ipaying the $60 or so necessary out of an assessment on players. This would lengthen the time the courts could be used, and would help make the country club more popular after dark. ions. Although the fire was confined to the east side, smoke spread all over the house, doing damage to walls, curtains, upholstering, and clothing.

Iowa Sales Tax in Real Boon to Minnesota Towns Grimly interesting to merchants in the northern tier of Iowa counties are remarks in (bordering Minnesota papers like this from the Blue Earth Post— "Blue .Earth merchant^ are smiling today. The imposition of a sales tax in Iowa will undoubtedly be a booster for neighboring Minnesota towns such as Elmore, Blue Earth, (Fairmont, and Jackson."
