PAGE TEN ' • THURSDAY, J BNB , SPEAKING OF GAS IN WAR, HERE IT IS Employes of the Algona Ice Cream rind Tandy factory were forced from the building Tuesday, when ammonia fumes from the freezing machine escaped after a gasket blew out. Someone by accident turned a faucet which drained the water out of the coil, and the machine got up to a pressure of nearly 300 pounds, which blew out the gaskets. The ammonia fumes escaping in the basement were so strong that no one could get in to turn off the machine. City Supt. Kelly was called to cut electric wires leading to the building and turn off the machine in that way. However, one of the employes got a gas mask and managed to get in to the switch and turn it off. The employes then opened win- 'dows and the fumes were allowed to escape. The fumes were so strong that grass and dandelions growing outside the basement windows were killed. As soon as the basement was filled with fresh air the gaskets were fixed, and more water put in the coils, and before evening the machines were running as usual. The factory has two freezing machines. The largest is in a separate building, where commercial ice is made for sale. The machine •which caused the trouble Tuesday •was in the basement of the main building, and cools the storage rooms where ice cream is frozen. * Alton Priest Has Served 25 Years Sidelights ®n the Election Returns H. W. Miller for county attorney received the top republican vote, 2563, and Sheriff Dahlhauser was high for the democrats with 1687. This is a difference of 876 votes, which may be the normal majority to be overcome by democratic county candidates this fall. * * * State Treasurer Wegman received good support from his former neighbors here, with a county total of 1364. # * * * Congressman F. C. Gilchrist had a total of 2457 republican votes, and was second high man on the republican ticket. * « * * Governor Herring is popular with Kossuth democrats. He received 1356 votes; Finch, 156; Zylstra, 117. • • * • Greenwood, as usual, cast a thumping democratic vote which upset the apple cart for some aspirants for office. An unusually large republican vote of 102 was also cast in Greenwood. • • * • The antipathy of some male voters for women in office is in some quarters believed responsible for the small vote received by Eleanor Rahm. Expression of the idea was heard before the election. Harrison, as usual, was the county republican stronghold, casting more ballots than any other republican precinct. « • * • Turner's 1767 vote, with three •opposing candidates, is considered a remarkable endorsement of the former governor by Kossuth republicans. Colflesh was expected to cut a larger figure; his Gii7 votes were not far ahead of Knutson's 510. Short, of Sioi-x City, carried Garfield, Hebron, Ramsey, and Springfield, but was blanked in Prairie, Riv- erdp.le, and Sherman, * * * * Turner carried 31 Kossuth precincts, including all of Algona; Knutson carried Lotts Creek; and Colflesh did not carry a precinct, but was second man in most precincts. * • * * Supervisor nominees in the fourth and fifth were fortunate in that the 35 per cent rule does not apply in their case. * • * * Lieut.-Gov. Kraschel apparently did not suffer much here from the charges brought against him last winter. He received 1333 democratic votes in the county. * • • • There was a hot race in Palo Alto for the democratic nomination for representative, and P. H. Donlon, incumbent, was defeated. Causes of his defeat are not known here, but he was a prominent supporter of the old age head tax and of the sales tax. * * * * if the question in Monday's! election had been more rain vs. t'.ll candidates on both ticket!; the candidates would all Invo boon snowed under so deep that they would never have dug themselves out. * » » * Among republicans Kossuth has been a Turner county ever since his first campaign, and he also stands well with democrats who are not hidebound. There will be a pretty race in Kossuth next fall between Turner and Herring. * » » • The D. M. Evening Tribune Tuesday reported 1979 precincts casting 277,840 republican ballots on governor, and 1821 precincts casting only 107,525 ballots on governor. That doesn't much look as if republicans had turned democrats in any great numbers since 1932. * * • On the republican gubernatorial nomination it was western and southern Iowa vs. the city politicians and eastern Iowa. It is evident that Colflesh was the choice of the politicians. LAURENCE RAMMER, 50, DIES FROM_HTROKE Laurence Rammer, Hock Rapids, Election _ and in three Algona wards.

Details are unknown here. The young man is a son of the D. W. Gerber, near j Galbraith. It is expected that the body will arrive today and that funeral services will be held at the ALGONA Markets The widely scattered support of some of these men, notably Anderson, Thorpe, Chubb, and Merrill, lent credence to the theory that a movement to nominate them at the coming county convention is under way. For Instance, Riverdale is one of the extreme south townships, and Harrison is 24 miles north. The tendency of First and Third ward voters in Algona to write in the names of out-of-town candidates,' who presumably would not be so well known as to receive such support without having been urged into the primary campaign, was considered significant.

Former Algonian Opens New Store Fenton, June 5—The C. 0. Baileys, Rock Rapids, have moved to Seneca, where Mr. Bailey is operating a store. August Nelson, who Thompson 25 was running the store, has moved his stock into the Nels Christensen building. Mr. Bailey has been working for the state banking department as assistant receiver two years, and prior to that was in a bank at Burt several years. He also once clerked in the County Savings bank, Algona. He is a Fenton boy, the son of Frank Bailey, who is also in the mercantile business. To Study J)raniatic Art.

No campaign of consequence was made by Patterson, and his defeat is in considerable part doubtless due to that fact, though in view of the returns it is doubtful that he would have won in any event. Patterson did not resign the sen- atorship and will serve in the general assembly next winter. Political friends regret the outcome in the primary, for they had expected that in case of victory Patterson would have been elected and would have been in a position to advance later to the governorship. This dream may be shattered now. Patterson and Turner, in case ol their election, would have workec together. If Turner and Cress are elected, harmony may not be so much the rule.
