Masses at St. Cecelia's church beginning Sunday will be a half hour earlier, or at 7:30 and 9:30. Sunday's Dos Moincs Register announced a magnificent gift, to Iowa by Mr. and Mrs. Gardner l.owics, who have established ai $500,000 trust to .provide financial assistance for worthy institutions "needing 'help for charitublu, scientific, literary, or educational purposes. /Nie sum has been «et aside in dividend-paying securities with a current value of a liaJf million to establish the fund, whidii will be known as the Gardner Cowles Foundation. It is not intended as a permanent fund, for it is aimed to distribute the principal as well as the income within 20 years. Mr. Cowles announced that the directors of the fund will be unfettered in distribution, though Dos Moincs and other Iowa institutions will be given preference. Three of the Cowles children wiho live at DCS Moines are directors of 'the fund. They are Mrs. D. S. Kruidinier, Gardner Cowles Jr., and John Cowles. Mr .and Mrs. Cowle.s wil'l live to see part of tho fund distributed. The Register quoted Mr. Cowles as follows: "Mrs. Cowles and I have lived our entire lives in Iowa, and tor more than 30 years (have resided in Des Moino*. We .love the state. During 1 the recent years of depress- sion we have been particularly dis- Mr. ('onlcs .Mrs. Conies tressed at the difficult times that many very worthy benvolent institutions in Iowa are having. We believe that Iowa people who are able should help these institutions to survive and continue to render their service to Dlie .public. It is our 'hope that the gifts distributed by this foundation over a period of years will help in some measure to make Iowa a still better place in which to live." Announcement of this gift to all Iowa follows within a few weeks 'the establishment of the $500 Florence Call Cowles endowment fund for the Algona .public li- hrary, Mr. and Mrs. Cowles also furnished half and more of the money for establishment of the Ambrose A. Call state park. CHANGE IN ABSENT VOTERSMJW MADE Absent voters' ballots must be cast by next week Saturday at County Auditor E. J. Butler's office in order to be counted in the primary election. A new law provides for such casting before the election. In previous years they could be cast on the day of the election, but this is now prohibited. This applies to all absent ballots, whether cast by persons out of town or by sick or otherwise disable persons. In former years election day was a nightmare for the auditor's office, because of calls for absent voter's ballots and the necessity of a deputy or the auditor going to voters' homes to receive ballots. All this is now eliminated. Persons wishing to cast absent voters' ballots must apply at the auditor's office and cast their ballots before the office closes a week from Saturday evening. Persons out of town can request a ballot by mail. Absent voters' ballots must be marked and acknowledged before a notary public, and they must be delivered in a sealed envelope provided by the auditor. Dean Geo. F. Kay to Speak Tuesday at Commencement Commencement exercises wil be held next week Tuesday evening at 8, also at the auditorium. Dean George F. Kay, of the liberal arts college of the state university, will ;lve the address. The exercises will open with an invocation by the Rev. J. Robt. Hoerner, followed by selections by the high school mixed chorus. Dean Kay will be introduced by Supt. Otto B. Laing, and following the address the boys' glee club will 'urnish music. Presentation of special awards will then be made by Supt. Laing. A. E. Michel, president of the school board, will present diplomas, and the Rev. Mr. Carlson will give the benediction. While there is no charge for the commencement exercises seats may be reserved, and persons desiring to obtain seats can do so at the high school building anytime next Tuesday or in the evening. There will be no charge for reservation. Saturday morning at 6 a. m. the seniors will have a picnic break- 'ast at the Shelter house at the Ambrose A. Call state park. Schoul will close next Thursday. To Show Chicago Fire Movies Today Manager N. C. Rice, of the Call cheater, received a telegram Tuesday notifying him that pictures of the Chicago stockyards fire which destroyed more than a square mile of buildings, etc., would be shown n Pathe news reel at a matinee here this afternoon, tonight, and tomorrow. The fire occurred Saturday, and the pictures will be shown here within five days. Teachers' Pay Shorted. Swea City teachers found out last week-end about the new old age pension head tax. The law requires employers to collect it from employes, and the secretary of the school shorted the teachers' pay checks a dollar each. Next year it will be $2 each. Turner at Euimetsburg. Ex-Governor Dan W. Turner is scheduled for a campaign address at 2-30 tomorrow afternoon in tne Emmetsburg courtroom. He speaks at the Clay county fair grounds, Spencer, this afternoon. Stop My Want Ad— I'm All Sold Out II. IV. IJutterfield, former Irvington fanner, now near Elmore, writes— "Will you please omit by soy beans advertisement? I have one more week paid for. Beans are all sold. It pays to advertise in the Advance." Mr. Itntterficia has for many years been a user of Advance advertising. One reason his advertising pays is that readers know his goods are reliable. PATTERSON AGAINST STATE UQUOR SALE Yesterday's Des Moines Register carried the following story: Iowa's liquor law contains too many unworkable and unreasonable provisions and will not prove satisfactory, George W. Patterson, republican candidate for lieutenant governor, told the Young Republican club of the second congressional district in Davenport, la., Tuesday night. "To oblige a person to register and obtain a permit and to force him to buy a quart when all he wants may be a drink, are provisions which will, in my opinion, prove unsatisfactory," he said. "I believe that private sale of liquor with state regulation would have been far more satisfactory than the present law." Mr. Patterson said he had always belonged to the so-called "dry" wing of the republican party. "The people of Iowa have by vote expressed disapproval of prohibition and in favor of legalizing the sale of liquor. I do not consider they have by popular vote sanctioned putting the state into the liquor business," Mr. Patterson said. Highway No. 44 to be Extended Fenton, May 22—A recent telephone call to J. F. Newel from Ames announced that No. 44 will be extended north 15 miles from the junction with No. 18 to a junction with No. 33, and markers will soon be placed. This means that this stretch of road has been taken into the primary road system. A local committee, Mr. Newel, E. C. Fauerby, and John Dempsey brought about this achievement. No. 44 is the road which comes up from West Bend to Whittemore and joins a road straight north to Fenton, later turning west to Ringsted, where it meets No. 43. ^ "Cretz" Euled Out. Charles Cretzmeyer failed to qualify in either the 100-yd. or the 220-yd. dash at a state track meet at Grinnell Saturday. He "jumped the gun" in preliminaries in both events, and so was disqualified. The event at Grinnell ended the high school track season this year. 3 Permits to IVed. Marriage licenses have been issued by District Court Clerk McEvoy to: Victor Whalen, Dolliver, Ethel Benjamin, Armstrong; Matt Weydert, Bode, Mary Fisch, Irvington; George Kutina, Manly, Clara Jeria, Glenville, Minn. All were issued Saturday. « — Returned to Cherokee. Jos. Loebig, Wesley, was taken to the Cherokee state hospital Tuesday by Sheriff Dahlhauser. He was first committed in 1931, but was taken to a Davenport sanitarium six months ago for treatment, but was recently brought back. MAYORS FROM 11 COUNTIES HERETUESDAY Disc uss Legislation Affecting Cities and Towns. Thirty-four representatives o£ towns in 11 surrounding counties met at Algona's city hall Tuesday for a district conference of the League of Iowa Municipalities. The speaker was the secretary of the organization, Frank Pierce, Marshalltown, and the legal adviser, R. A. Rockhlll, also Marshalltown, accompanied him. The league has heretofore held only an annual state convention, but a need for district meetings has been felt for some time. The organization was formed many years ago to protect the common interest of Iowa cities and towns and afford a means for the exchange of information and ideas. League Watches Laws. In many cases the league has been influential in getting beneficial laws passed by the legislature, and on other occasions it has been instrumental in heading off legislation backed by utilities companies which would have been deterimen- tal to municipality owned utilities. Mr. Pierce led a discussion on bills passed at the recent extra session, and discussed bills which may come up at the next regular session. The recent liquor law, he said, requires that cities under 10,000 population give half of thuir license fee on permits to their counties respectively. This he feels is unfair. Sales Tax Discussed. Discussion was also had on application of the state sales tax and other legislative bills which had to do with city government. Many questions were asked of both Mr Pierce and Mr. Rockhill; these concerned water plants, light I Band Tonight to Open the Season On C. H.

The title is, "They All Want Something." The play shows in amusing fashion a young man, son of a wealthy automobile manufacturer, who pretends for the time being that he is a tramp, in order that he may see a girl whom he has met at Venice under romantic circumstances. The youth also assumes the pose of a chauffeur to the end that the girl's mother, who loves to reform other people, may find in him a worthy object.

Brethorst was brought back last week Wednesday night from Shell Lake, Wis., by Sheriff Dahlhauser, and was surrendered to Palo Alto county officers the same day to answer charges in connection with the kidnaping of the Dan Sibrel family last winter. Brethorst skipped out when four companions were arrested the morning following the crime. Several gallons of alcohol were hijacked from Sibrel, an Emmetsburg character. Last of Five Kidnapers. Sheriff Dahlhauser was assisted in Wisconsin by Sheriff Frank 0'- Conner, of the county in which Shell Lake is located. O'Conner is a former cowboy who has been sheriff there for many years. At Brethorst's 40-acre truck farm there were found a dozen guns of various kinds, including a pair of automatic rifles. The town has a population of only 200, but is the county seat. Brethorst was the last of the five men who participated in the raid at Sibrel's to be caught. Harold Speraw, Algona, is serving five years at Fort Madison as accomplice; Delmar McFadden, also Algona, was paroled from a similar sentence; 'Tex" Howland, Fort Dodge, is serving a 25-year sentence on the kidnaping charge; and Frank Kesler is serving a like term. Kossuth officers, including Mr Dahlhauser and Deputy Casey Loss, County Attorney M. C. McMahon, and Marshals Green and Van Alstyne are credited with solution of the Sibrel case. Two Algonians Convicted. The attack at the Sibrel farm occurred late at night.

(Linda ,Ky., May 14—I told you you wlhen I left Algona that I would write about my trip, tout I have toeen going so ibard that I lhave hardly had time to rest or sleep. I have traveled about a bit in, my time, but I have never ttiad a more interesting trip than tfce one Mrs. Muhleman and I are now taking.
