BLOOM & SON NEW FIRM ON STATE TODAY Master Dick Bloom, IMnos. son of Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Bloom, Algona, is being Introduced early to the joys and cares of business life. A year ago Dick's dad took out a Class C beer license for his Coast to Coast store, the same being issued in the name of his father—since deceased— and himself as Samuel Bloom & Son. This time the licensing authority was instructed to issue the permit in the name of Jos. Bloom only, but there was n misunderstanding and the permit was issued in the name of Jos. Bloom & Son. Mr. Bloom said yesterday that he had consulted Dick about the matter and that no change in the permit would be asked for. 533 PERMITS OUT TO HUNTERUSIHERMEN Followers of Izaak Walton are getting licenses faster than the fishermen-hunters; in other words the dollar fishing license is selling more rapidly than the combination hunting-fishing license which costs $2.50. The total number of fishing licenses issued to date is 287, whereas the combination licenses total only 240. Applicants interested in hunting alone have been only four in number, and only two children have bought the minor's hunting license. A fishing license for minors is not necessary. Licenses may be obtained at nine points in the county besides the county recorder's office: Lichty & Ross, Lu Verne; Joe Fleming, Whittemore; C. F. Berggren, Swea City; E. R. Worley, Lakota; G. W. Newel, Fenton; and the banks at Ledyard, Lone Rock, Bancroft, and Titonka. Each has both the fish- ng license and the combination license. BEENKEN WINNER IN D, D, 165 CASE A decree by Judge Davidson holding constitutional the law whereby H. Geo. Beenken seeks to apply discounted warrants in D. D. No. 1G5 on drainage assessments against lands in Springfield township was filed yesterday. County Treasurer Duffy was ordered to accept the warrants and cancel the assessments. The court held that when the Roece case in the district court was decided in 1930 the unpaid outstanding warrants totaled $58,418.16, but that the Reece decision made them good only to the amount of $23,419.20, which automatically discounted the warrants 40.09 per cent. Beenken's assessments totaled $6698.72, and he tendered $16,709.20 in warrants in payment. Discounted 40.09 pet., this was enough to cover his assessments. Presumably he bought them at a further discount, but the record does not reveal that he paid, and in the court's view it made no difference, for the law gave him the right to turn them in at the discount fixed in the Reece case. The Des Moines Joint-Stock Land bank, which is supposed to be behind Beenken, is now in a position to sell its mortgage on the land to the Omaha Federal Land bank clear of the drainage lien. Thus endeth another chapter in the history of D. D. No. 165. Firestone Dealers Have Meeting Here Firestone dealers in nine counties had a banquet and program at the Algona hotel Monday night. Counties represented were Kossuth, Humboldt, Emmet, Palo Alto, Pocahontas, Dickinson, Clay, and Buena Vista. H. M.

The trouble was they couldn't hit when it meant runs. Grant collected nine hits from the offerings of Carter and Riddle, while Kelly gave up but seven. Only four Burt men were struck out when they couldn't get the ball Into fair-hit territory, and seven men were left on the sacks. In the fifth Stewart, of Burt, walked and scored on Sigsbee's single for the first score of the game. The other two came in the sixth, when Carter gained second on an error and scored on White's double. White scored later on a single by Clayton. Gerald Ollom, Burt iright fielder, made some beautiful catches. Batteries were Kelly and Boever for Grant; Riddle, Carter and Sigsbee for Burt. East Tourney Tame. Games of the east half of the county baseball tournament at Titonka Friday afternoon and Saturday were mostly one-sided. In the opening game Friday afternoon the Titonka Indians defeated the Ledyard hurlers 17-0. Again Saturday morning Titonka overwhelmed Lu Verne. The only close game was between Wesley and Bancroft, which ended in Bancroft's favor, 8-7. Titonka, however, then used the same overwhelming tactics against Bancroft, which was swept off the field by a score of 18-2. Titonka thus won the east half county championship by three decisive scores. Titonka's magnificent showing in the east half gave the Indians a great edge in the dope sheet in the final game against Burt for the county championship yesterday afternoon. Another Law Firm in Prospect Here Last week's Swea City Herald said that E. H. Parsons, superintendent of schools there, and'Judge D. F. Coyle, Humboldt, had formed a law partnership and would open an office here June 1, 'and that Judge Coyle would spend three days a week here, returning for the other four days to Humboldt, where he is in partnership with a son.
