The management of the county Roosevelt club feels that it was fortunate to date him. He spoke recently at Fairmont, where he made a big hit. County Organization Planned. Mr. Breen, who is county attorney in Webster county, will explain the objects of the Young Democrats club, and it is expected that a county organization here will be perfected. Voters from 21 to 40 are eligible to membership, and voters past 40 may be honorary members. Mr. Bonnstetter is expected to speak briefly on the work of the special session of the legislature. admission will be charged, and the attendance of persons of all political faiths is invited. At the countywlde Roosevelt banquet here last winter some 400 voters signed membership cards in the Roosevelt club. Objects of Young Democrats. <~-The Young Democrats club is a national organization with the following objectives: Support of the Roosevelt recovery program. Detour signs on No. 169 were scheduled to go up yesterday or today, und work on paving inside tho city limits will start this weekend. The detour will be from the old Thorpe corner, now the George Hackman farm, south of town, west on 226 past the Ambrose A. Call state park, thence and over the Call bridge, north on Hall street to the power plant corner, thence east on Call to Jones to return to No. 1G9. Tho paving is under contract to Booth & Olson, Sioux City, who have just completed a job at Charles City. A basket crane is expected from the Charles City job this week-end, and will be used on the job here. The paving will start at the fairgrounds corner and run north to State, thence west to Jones. While concrete is being laid on .the fairgrounds stretch the present paving on cast Slate and the block oa Phillips between State and Mc- iregor will be ripped up. Tho State street stretch will be widened six feet, three feet on each side, also Phillips from State to McGregor, but from McGregor to the fairgrounds it will be the regulation 18-ft. paving. The section of State to be repav- ed is the most worn section in town, and has been in need of resurfacing for some years. There has been question whether it would stand resurfacing, however, because of probable weakened condition of the sub-surface. Tests a few years ago showed the sub-base in bad condition.

TAX SALE IS HELD MONDAY BY DUFFY Some 220 descriptions were sold at a fairly active delinquent tax sale by Treasurer M. J. Duffy Monday morning. There were 20 to 30 bidders, and the bidding on farm land was particularly active. Other descriptions, with a scavenger list, will be offered May 21. Treasurer Duffy took a tape of Monday's sales and found that they totaled $35,344.40. The taxes due this year have been paid in much better volume than was the case a year ago, Mr. Duffy says. The first half due April 1, when penalty attached, was $400,217.96, of which $343,672.40 was paid. This is 86 per cent of the first half. A year ago the first half was $478,709.16, of which only 58 per cent, or $279,524.16, was paid without penalty. Of course, however, the emergency law passed at a special session of the legislature postponed attachment of the penalty till July 1, and this law was anticipated by many taxpayers, who therefore did not pay In April or before. A good-sized drop in taxes is shown in the tax figures for the two years. Last year's 1932 taxes payable in 1933 total was $951,417.31, while this year the county total is $794,434.91, making a decrease of $156,982.40, a decrease of 16 per cent plus.

SKY CLOUDED BY TWO MURKY DUST STORMSJN WEEK The worst dust storm in the history of Kossuth blew clouds so thick Saturday night that street lights two blocks away were barely visible. Sunday the day was clear, but on Monday morning the performance was duplicated. Tuesday and yesterday were clear. Strong esterly winds and a low pressure storm area caused a 25 or 30-mile gale which carried much dust all the way from South Dakota, where there has been a great drought two years. Oldtirners here have been heard to say that these storms were the worst they could remember. In many places this spring dust lias collected like snowbanks, especially along the edges of roads. Driving in the country during storms has been difficult and dangerous because of low visibility. The records of the local weather observer show that there has been a deficiency of 5.94 inches of rainfall since October 1, or in seven months. March was the only month with moisture above normal. Rainfall since October first should have amounted to 12.13 inches, but only 6.17 has been recorded. Normal rainfall for the past seven months compared with the record follows: Normal Rainfall One Application on File, and Other Expected. The board of supervisors, at its May meeting next Tuesday, will appoint a county old age pension board for the county, it is expected. F. A. Corey has applied for appointment as republican member o£ the board, and this was the only application on file up to Tuesday evening. It was reported that Mrs. F. L. Tribon would apply for appointment as democratic member. The law specifies that one o£ the three members shall be a woman. The other member will be ex- officio the overseer of the poor. J. M. Moore has been acting in that capacity since last fall, and if he is continued in office he will be the third member. Board Gets No Pay. The board will receive no pay, either per diem or in mileage allowance. However, the law specifies that members shall be reimbursed for actual and necessary expenses in discharging official duties. The board is permitted to appoint local investigators at compensation to be fixed by the board. It is believed this provision is for the benefit of cities or other densely populated districts where it would be practicaly impossible for a county board to investigtae all cases. A new wrinkle is a ruling which makes every employer liable for the payment of the $2 annual tax by employes. If the tax is not paid by an employe the state can collect from the employer. However, the latter is allowed to deduct the amount of the tax from wages. Dollar a Head Due Now. The first payment under the old age pension law is to be $1 for every person over 21, and this is payable July 1. Succeeding payments are $2 a head for life, due every January 1. The tax is payable by both men and women, and every Married man will have a $2 tax. G. D. Shumway, president of the Kossuth Republican club, was informed yesterday that former Governor Dan W. Turner would come to Algona next Wednesday and spend part of the day here. An effort was made to secure the governor for an evening address at the high school auditorium, but his schedule would not permit. He is to speak at Humboldt next Wednesday night. In view of the fact that it is difficult to drum up an audience for a daytime meeting, 3Ir. Shumway has decided to arrange for a notfn dinner at the Algona hotel, to be followed by a short talk by the governor. This dinner will be public, that is, anyone may attend, paying for his own plate, but Mr. Shumway wonts to know by Tuesday morning who is coining, this in order that he may advise Manager Frane how many plates to prepare.

After the board has been completely organized it can accept applications for the old age pension, but no pensions will be allowed lor the time being. The law specifies that no pension shall be paid till after November 1, and then only where extreme need is definitely shown. Allowances this year will be of emergency nature, and regular application of the law will not begin till next year. All Kossuth assessors have made, or are making, a second trip of their respective districts to list all persons more than 21. B. S. Griffin who gave their Spirit Lake, were bound to the grand jury under $1,000 bonds by Justice H, B. White yesterday afternoon on charges of grand larceny. Neither was able to furnish bond, and both were taken to jail. The charges were preferred by Ira Hewitt, former Algonian, who has operated the Swea City rendering works for a number of years. They are held jointly for the theft Monday night of 120 hides from the Hewitt plant. The men were caught at Sioux City Tuesday when they attempted to dispose of the hides to a Sioux City firm. Mr. Hewitt had broadcast warning to hide buyers to watch out for men not ordinarily selling hides. Miller and Griffin admitted taking the hides, as they were on the way to Algona with Deputy Sheriff Casey Loss, but put up hard luck stories. They said it was their first offense. Only 61 hides were in their possession at Sioux City. It is believed that the pair sold the rest elsewhere or have them in hiding. The past activities of the pair are being investigated to discover whether they handled stolen hides from Everly and Jackson, Minn., rendering plants which reported losses. In these cases the hides were traced to a buyer at Fort The tall, spare figure and bearded face of Dr. F. P. Klahr which had become familiar to Algonians since he and his wife came to Algona eight years ago to live with their daughter, Mrs.'Geo. St. John, will be seen no more. Taken with a heart attack Tuesday morning at 11:30, after:return from an expedition up town, he lingered only four hours. It was a quick and apparently painless transition. Born in Ohio. Funeral services will be conducted at the Congregational church here this afternoon at 3 o'clock by the Rev. J. Robt. Hoerner, pastor, and burial with Masonic rites will be made in Riverview. Doctor Klahr was a member of the church, also of the Walla Walla blue lodge, Royal Arch Chapter, and Com- mandery. He was also a Woodman. Doctor Klahr, who was past 84, suffered a severe heart attack last fall, and at intervals since then he had had minor attacks. But he got about much as usual, and the proximity of the end was not suspected. The venerable doctor, who was the son of a wagonmaker, was born at Bloomville, Ohio, September 12, 1849, one of five children. Two Continued on page 10.) Klahr. Dodge. The men at first claimed that they purchased the hides. After 'admitting the Swea City theft they clung to the story that three of the bides had been purchased from a farmer near Swea City. Children Hurt in Tube Fire Escape A jagged edge of metal in one of the tube fire escapes at the Bryant resulted in many scratches and one deep gash when the pupils slid down in a fire drill last Thursday. Jane, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alex Nielsen, suffered a deep gash, which was treated by Dr. P. V. Janse. More than 20 other students were treated for minor scratches by Antoinette Bonnstetter, R. N., school nurse. The fire escapes had been Inspected recently, but the offending break was not discovered. • ' Four Permits to Wed. Marriage licenses have been issued to: Raymond Cook, Catherine Isabelle Cavanaugh, both of Algona, Lawrence H. Kienholz, Helen Gibb, both of Delavan, Minn., who were married Saturday by the Rev. C V. Hulse; Frank H. Scoville, Marshalltown, Nellie Godbury, Chicago; and Charles J. Tingust, East Chain, Minn., Pearl M. McAnincb, Swea City. Kittenball Teams Open 1934 Series Kittenball league players have been getting into shape in the last week for the opening of the season next Monday night, The opening game will be between Sinclair and Phillips 66. Next week Wednesday the Hub Clothiers will play U. D. M., and next week Friday Skelly will play RCA. Last Sunday Skelly won from Sinclair, 19-3, in a six- inning game. The Clothiers and the RCA then played, score 5-3 in favor of RCA at the end of the third inning. In nine more innings neither team scored. WOMEN WRESTLERS THRILL FANS HERE Nearly 100 local wrestling fans attended a meet in the I, O. O. F. hall last Thursday evening to see four rounds of fast work. The main bout was between Frank Bauer, Swea City, who managed and sponsored the meet, and Ace Hudkins, Westport, Minn. Other rounds were between Haxson, o£ Britt, and a Garner wrestler. Two women furnished a thriller, and a 9-year-old son of Frank Bauer also went in for a 5-minute round with the son of the referee, this event ending in a draw. Bauer won both bouts, taking two falls, the first within a half hour, the second in less than 15 minutes. Haxson also won two falls, each in 20 minutes. The rounds were fast and furious in each case, the wrestlers working under new rules which practically allow merciless torture. The women were easier than the men, but a 21-minute round furnished spectators with plenty of thrills. Paul Hamil, local jeweler, served as timekeeper, and W. J. Becker as announcer. Mr. Bauer plans more wrestling meets here soon. There is a chance for paving this' season on No. 169 from Algonav south to the Humboldt line if the federal government makes a road, building appropriation, O. J. Ditto* member of the state highway com,mission, said at a luncheon her* last Thursday noon attended by members of the board of supervisors and Algona Community club of-«- ficers at the Algona hotel. There is, however, little chance that paving will in any event be- extended all the way to Humboldt this year. Humboldt county got. more than six" miles of paving out of the 1933 appropriation and benefit- is not entitled to a paving project this year. If the Kossuth project is carried: out there is a good chance that the Humboldt stretch will be paved within a year or two, depending on appropriations. t , Nothing in North End. Mr. Ditto said there was noj chance of extending paving on No*. 169 from No. 9 to the Minnesota, line so long as any part of the road. remained unpaved in Iowa. The idea is that Iowa roads must bat paved first for the promotion of intrastate traffic. It is a matter of paving wheret Iowa travel is greatest. The paving is paid for by Iowa taxpayers. It is certain that paving No. 169* south from Algona would be more; serviceable to a greater number off lowans than paving from No. 9 t» the state line. Iowa people in this territory, Mr. Ditto said, go south to Des Moines, and from the south use this road en route to the Okobojis or Clear Lake, but No. 169 from No. 9 to the Minnesota line serves only a comparatively small number of Iowa travelers. ^, t _ Federal Aid Divided. v- Under stipulations in federal appropriations the money must be- split up all throughout the via allotment to counties. state Last year's Kossuth allotment was spent on No. 60 south from Wesley and. paved No. 169 inside Algona. Allotments are divided locally on. the following basis: one-fourth for secondary roads; one-fourth for state roads inside cities or towns; and one-half on the primary road system. Every one of Iowa's 99 counties had its allotment apportioned in this way last year. The present federal objective is not so much to build roads as ta. relieve unemployment. Each paving machine requires about 20<fc men. The money comes via the PWA as an outright gift, but it must be widely distributed in order to reach as many of the unemployed as possible in every section of the state. Road Building Aids Labor. The PWA has in the last year found that road building is the quickest and most efficient way to put labor to work, hence the chance. Bonier Funeral Today. Funeral services for Mrs. Marie Homer, who lived on Diagonal street, will be held at the Methodist church this afternoon at 2 o'clock the Rev. C. V. Hulse in charge. Mrs. Romer, who died Tuesday, was born January 18, 1874, and was 60 years old. Strong Wind Blows Burt Car Off Road Hurt, Apr. 24—Mrs. L. J. Fairbanks, with her baby, was driving home Saturday evening and the strong wind blew the car off the grade, where it tipped over on its side. Mrs. Fairbanks was unable to get out and persons passing in another car helped her. Neither she nor the baby was much hurt, and the car was not much damaged. The accident happened just east of Burt. TERMS OF TWO JUDGES TO EXPIRE THIS YEAR The terms of office of Judges DeLand and Heald expire this year. It is assumed that both will be candidates for reelection on the republican ticket. Among attorneys there has been some under cover talk of one or more other republican candidates, but whom has not become public. Whether the democrats entertain aspirations is not known. While candidates for Judge, run on party tickets they are not nominated in the primaries. In the county conventions following the primaries delegates to a district judicial convention are named, and nominations are made in these conventions. This is the 14th judicial district, and it consists of Kossuth, Humboldt, Emmet, Palo Alto, Pocahontas, Dickinson, Clay, and Buena Vista counties. Judge DeLand has served several terms, but Judge Heald is serving his first term. Hogs Stolen From S. C. Stock Yards C. H. Arnold, hog buyer at Swea City, found Saturday morning that nine out of 19 hogs he had bought and was about to ship to market had been stolen the night before at the stockyards. When he left the yards he locked the gates, but the thieves lifted the heavy gates off the hinges, then drove the hogs into a box car which had been "spotted" in front of the loading driveway. Thence they loaded them into a truck, and drove away. Mr. Arnold, who has been buying hogs three years, never has lost any before in this way, but on several occasions hogs in the yards have been slaughtered and thieves got away with the carcasses.
