Both left the country at the same time. Nichols had been driving a Ford V-8. Shortly before hiking out he returned to the Jennings home with a 'Chrysler, which he said had been loaned to him while the Ford was being repaired. It has since been learned that a Chrysler is missing from near Rockwell City, and it is believed this may have been the car. A phone call to Sedalia brought the information that the uieii are wanted there for theft of a car.

Sorenson and her brother, Joha Hogan, Great Falls, Mont, met for •the first time dn more tton 40 years when he arrived recently lor a visit, Algonian Is Arrested for Federal Men Robert. Schoby, 25, Algonian, was arrested Sunday morning by Constable Floyd Newvillc south of Sexton on a federal charge of forging an endorsement on a CWA check for $30 and cashing it. An official of the United States Secret Service came Monday afternoon, and loft the same day for Omaha with Schoby. It is reported that Schoby told friends neighboring Sexton that he had returned to Rive himself up. He arrived Saturday afternoon on a freight train and made visits till he was arrested. He made no resistance, and was willing to talk. The case is out of the jurisdic- ion of local courts, and will be brought up in federal court, prob- ibly in South Dakota. Schoby had been in South Dakota for some time, and yesterday's Des Moines Register, noting UK arrest, said he was also wanted n connection with the burglary of .he Deadwood, S. D., postoffice iome time ago. He is married and has one child, but his family is still n South Dakota. ALGONIANS~VOTING IN A DIGEST POLL ON THUIEW DEAL Cards in a Literary Digest straw poll on the Roosevelt policies were received by many Algonians Monday. They were in the form of a ballot, with squares for answers to- two questions:—Do you approve on tlhe whole of the acts and policies of 'Roosevelt's first year? 2.— For whom did you vote in 1932? After the second question the squares indicated Roosevelt, Hoover and Any Other. A space was also provided for the name of the state. The cards were not to be signed.. It is said that 4,000,000 ballots were to be sent out by the Literary Digest. It costs a cent apiece to mail them to voters and 2c to mail back the ballots, all at Mie company's expense. If all the cards, were returned the total postage) alone would be $120,000. When to this is added the 'printing and otlb- er preliminary expense, and the cost of tabulating the returns, it can be seen that the Literary Digest spends a large fortune on ey- ery sudlv poll it takes. There has been criticism of the No. 1 question on the ground that it is too general and unduly favors the administration. Many wlho are bitterly against a great deal that the administraion has done still do not like to vote against the program "as a whole." Thus ttie result will be of ^no value &si a poll on individual policies and the tendency it ks claimed, will be to give a blanket endorsement which will be deceptive. CRIPPLED GIRL GETS VINCENT WHEEL CHAIR Last week's Dea Moines Tribune carried a picture of Dolores Eoriatti, 16-year-old girl there who has been crippled with infantile paralysis three years. Recently R. E. Vincent noticed an appeal for a wheel chair for this girl, so he sent the one used so long by his daughter, the late Ora Vincent, and the picture showed the girl in the chair. Mr. Vincent sent the chair down on a Des Moines Register delivery truck which comes here Sunday mornings. While at Des Moines last week Wednesday Mr. Vincent took time to visit the girl, and he found her crippled in both arms and legs. An effort was made some time ago to send the girl to the Warm Springs foundation where President Roosevelt goes, but the place is full. A small tank has been built in the yard at the girl's home, and it is hoped that some benefit can be obtained in this manner. • May Re-Seed Crops Damaged by Winds A ruling permitting the reseed- ing of drought or wind-damaged areas by corn-hog contract signers has been received at the central corn-hog office here.

The boy, who is only 4%, is a son of Attorney Harry W. Hanson, Des Moines, and Ilia mother, who was 'Loretta Johnston, died when he was born. 1>. M. Register's Story. A report of the accident appeared on the front page of yesterday's Des Moines Register as follows: Wililiam 'Christopher Hanson, 4',-j year-okl-son of Attorney Harry W. Hanson, 2415 College ave., is in a critical condition at Iowa Methodist hospital after accidentally shooting himself through the chest with a .38 calibre revolver Tuesday night. The shooting occurred in the (home of Mrs. -Rosa OB. Cunningham, 2600 Twenty-fourth Street place, past president of the Des Moines Business and Professional Women's club, according to police. May Prove Fatal. So far as was known ;by detectives' and relatives, William was alone when he shot himself. Despite Ws severe wound, which 'Mr. Hanson said may prove fatal, the boy walked nearly a block to his home. 'No one was home at the Cunningham residence when William shot himself, detectives said. The boy is 'believed 'by .police to have entered the house through the basement garage door and found the revolver in a -drawer, Mr. Hanson said after talking with detectives and neighbors. Entered House Alone. While William had been playing with a neighbor boy shortly before the accident, police said they believed he entered the house alone. The shooting occurred at approximately 4 p. m. Mrs. Alta Lee, housekeeper at the Hanson home, and a neighbor, Mrs. W. N. Switzer, 2411 College ave., administered first aid to the boy.

DROUGHT IS EASED BY A HEAVY RAIN AND HAIL STORM A long awaited rain fell Satur- and this eased for a time drought conditions in this part of the state. The rain fell heavily with much hail, some of which was more than half the size of an egg. The hail did little damage, only two or three windows at the Algona Green- aouses being broken. This rain, with a sprinkle in the morning, amounted to only .48 inch, which, adding a tenth of an inch May "3, brings the total to only .58 for May. The normal fall for May is 4.58 inches. Saturday's fall, though helpful, will not be sufficient at this season of the year when everything is growing. Saturday's rain was the first of any consequence since the fourth, and fifth of April, third, when 1.17 inches were registered. This was the only fall in April, which normally has a measurement of 2.96 during the month. Normal rainfall up to the first of May from January 1 is 7.01 inches, but only 4.22 has fallen this year. Since October 1, when the drought began, the" fall has been only 6.17 inches, while normal from then to May 1 is 12.13 inches. Normal for the year is 32.18 inches, but in the year 1933 only 24.51 inches were recorded, leaving a deficiency of 7.67 inches. Saturday morning's storm brought • little • rain, but strong winds 'did havoc with farm buildings in this part of the state. Many wooden silos were blown down. It is thought 'that most of'- them were empty, for. farmers • ;haye -been ' using the feed because most of their corn is sealed. Temperatures during the last week follow: May 9 ----------------- 90 May 10 ------- ... ..... .80 May 11 -------- ........ 70 May 12 (.48 in. r. f.) ___ 66 May 13 ---------------- 65 May 14 ------- ..... ____ 73 May 15 ---------------- 74 Nab Brethorst In Wisconsin; Wanted Here Fred Brethorst, Sexton, for whom officers had been searching for some months, was located at Shell Lake, Wis., by Sheriff Dahlhauser Tuesday, and yesterday afternoon was arrested there, officers here were advised. Mr. Dahlhauser left immediately for Shell Lake, and is expected today with his prisoner. Brethorst is wanted in connection with the kidnaping of the Dan Sibrel family at Emmetsburg last winter, in which the Sibrel housekeeper and children, were forced to accompany the kidnapers ten miles from their home, after the gang had robbed the house of a quantity of alcohol. Brethorst's name was also brought into the fatal burning of a Minnesota youth at a still explosion here at about the same time, but no criminal action on this count is anticipated.

RALLY AT DES MOINES Senator Patterson spoke briefly Friday night at a ra.lly at Des) Moines for all repulbican candidates for state office. The meeting was • sponsored by the Sixth congressional district republican service league, and nearly all candidates except Clarence L. Knutson, Clear Lake ,and Wallace M. Short, Sioux City, both seeking the nomination for governor, were in attendance. The Des Moines Register quoted Patterson as saying: "Exercise of the power to destroy business at will makes me uneasy. We are going to rewrite the new deal into a square deal. The new deal is not named right anyway—it's a raw deal." Former Sheriff G. E. Cress, Mason City, and one J. A. Nelson, other candidates for the lieutenant governorship nomination, also spoke briefly. One remaining candidate, one Thompson, of Clinton, was not mentioned. Apparently it is conceded by most observers that Patterson has the best show for the nomination. Remarks editorially of such newspapers as the Mason City Globe- Gazette and the Marshalltown Times-Republican, always opposed to Patterson in the past because of his income tax views, have given him the edge for both the nomination and the election. If Patterson is nominated and elected a special election will have to be held after election to choose his successor in the senate. • Tatterson is not making an Intensive campaign* but it is felt that the frequent .daily, and • weekly newspaper .mention he has received during;; his.-service in the legislature has made voters so familiar with his name and record that they are likely to vote for him rather than for such comparatively un- MEXICAN NEAR LEDYARD DIES, DOLTJICTIM Saturday Windstorms* Do Wide Damage in the County. High winds which played tor«- nado tricks in many parts of that county swept through Kossuth early Saturday marning, and that evening high winds brought a hail and» rainstorm. These storms temporarily broke the drought locally. Janero Flores, Mexican beet, weeder on the Alvin Bush farm,. north of Ledyard, was instantly killed in the evening storm, when.' he was struck by lightning. Ther same bolt fired the Bush barn, which was burned to the grounds A colt in the barn was lost. Bolt Jumps from Aerial. Flores, 47, who was midway between barn and house, had just pumped water and had rinsed tha' pail. As he turned back to thet pump the bolt struck. Apparently; it ran along radio aerial from barn; to house and jumped the gap between the wire and the Mexican's: head. The victim was instantly killed^. The body was discovered by tha Bush family when they looked out to see where the bolt had struck. A cap which Flores burned to cinders, and was' badly singed, but wore was his hair otherwises his body bore no evidence of then stroke. The lightning was followed a, few minutes later by a rain an* hail storm which hindered efforts to save the barn. High Wind at Daybreak. In Algona and elsewhere at, many points the morning windstorm brought down tree branches.. and the ground was littered with. twigs and branches. At the Ralph Brown farm, east of No. 169, three miles south of town," a big two-story barn was blown down. It had a tile base, from which the high roof was lifted and set down against an oatc. tree ten feet northwest of the foundation. The tile walls were leveled".

Mullen, Fonda, Sales Tax Checker Last week Tuesday's Marshalltown Times-Republican published a list of 23 lowans for whom the new sales tax law created jobs as field men who "will confer with taxpayers, check delinquent taxes, address public meetings, and otherwise assist in explaining details of the law and the board's regulations." They will receive $1850 a year salaries plus expenses. No one from Kossuth landed one of these jobs, which were let by Ray Murphy, chairman of the state board of assessment and review. Edward J.
