School, Academy Squads to Start Practice. With the schools reopening a week from Monday, the topic for much conversation will soon ho football. The high school athletes of both the public schools and the academy are planning for the opening of the practice season the very first day. The public school football schedule Is already scheduled, with but one date left unsettled, though dated with Gilmore City October 19. The rest of the schedule follows: Friday, September 21, Livermore, here, night game. Friday, October 5, Estherville, here, night game. Friday, October 12, Spencer, there, night game. Saturday, October 27, Emmetsburg, there, afternoon. Friday, November 2, Clarion, there, afternoon. Friday, November 9, Humboldt, here, night game. Fridiiy, November 16, Eagle Grove, here, afternoon. JTo Turkey Bay Game. As will be noticed, there are four night games, 3 on the local field, one at Spencer. The last game of the season, against Eagle Grove, Cattle to be Pastured on Kossuth Farms Supervisor W. E. McDonald has been busy for the last, week, talking to and lining up farmers interested in the pasturage and feeding preferred to buy cattle instead of taking them on a rental basis.

At present the plan is to get applications, forward them headquarters and await results. to A already number of farmers have agreed to take cattle. So far there has not been much demand for sheep, but it is expected that a number of sheep will be applied for this week. An advertisement on the farm page gives details of one plan, and C. W. Patterson, Burl, is advertising another plan in the want-ads. Many farmers interviewed have may also be played at night, but it is feared that the weather will be too cold that late in the season. The season ends two weeks before Thanksgiving, so there will be no Turkey day game this year. The high school squad lost eight men by graduation last spring: William Hilton, Carol Hutchins, Jos. Larson, .Russell Medin, Bob Sellstrom, Max Miller, Dick Shackelford, and Charles Stevenson.

Skelly is second; the Hub third. Coast-to-Coast team, which at the beginning of the season was the UDM team, has disbanded, and for the last two weeks teams from other towns have filled in on the nights it was to play. However, whether the league team loses cr not, a win is given it in the books because of default on the part of Coast-to-Coast. The League standings follow: Won Lost a clean bill of health being necessary before they are shipped. Mr. McDonald has found that this impression arose from misinformation, and most objectors did not know that government men made a check on every animal. Mr. McDonald had signed up enough formers by last night to take care of 800 cattle, and he has not yet made a check in many parts of the county. Those wishing to pasture cattle should get in touch with him within the next few days.

In issuing this edition the Ad- Tnnee hopes to lend new interest to the county fair, which this year will present one of the largest and most attractive programs in its history. The Kossuth fair is one of the best in the state, but because of some lack of interest among Kossuth people themselves, attendance has not been up to the murk in late years. The Advance hopes to help overcome this handicap and show Kossuth people that the Kossuth fair is the real thing, as much so and as attractive as any county fair in the state. Auto Racing at the Fair Feeders Can Obtain a Release by Paying 47 Cents per Bu. Payment of corn loans has been extended till January 1, daily papers reported yesterday. Approximately 3,700,000 bushels of corn were placed under seal in this county before May 1, the clos- ng date, which brought to the jounty an aggregate of $1,654,000. Much of this is affected by the new order of the farm administration, jecause it gives four months further time for payment and for probable increase in selling prices. Some corn has been released, but the quantity still under seal is high. According to the papers, farmers can still have their corn released anytime by paying 47 cents a bushel to the Commodity Credit Corporation. If farmers wish to take advantage of the extra time from September 1 till January 1 they may do so by agreeing to offer the corn for sale first to a government agency designated by the CCC. If an agency is not named or, if named does not accept the borrower's offer immediately, the farmer may sell his corn on the open market upon paying 47 cents to the CCC. A statement by Chester C. Davis AAA administrator, in yesterday's Des Moines Register says: "Farmers who took the 45 cem loans on sealed corn in many instances require the corn for their own feeding purposes, and they have the opportunity, under this CHECKS WILL BE RECEIVED IN SEPTEMBER V/OU ARE GOING to see the real thing in automobile racing at the 1 county fair this year.

Saturday morning after breakfast he left the Eberts, and that night he stayed at Geigel's. The Eberts were notified of his whereabouts next morning, and arrangements were made whereby they were to call for him at the Neuman store at Sexton, but the boy failed to wait for them and returned to the Geigels that night. Sheriff Dahlhauser returned the boy to the Eberts Monday, and Supervisor McDonald is now trying to get in touch with Chicago authorities to locate the lad's parents. plan, to obtain such corn as they need for this purpose by paying to the Commodity Credit Corporation 47c a bushel for the amount to be released." This plan was adopted, it is believed, to prevent dumping of sealed corn on the market September 1 and forcing the government to take it over. It also permits farmers who wish to hold corn under seal all or in part to do as they may wish. The provision that borrowers taking advantage of the extension to January 1 must agree to offer the corn to some government agency was designed to meet feed needs for next year by government purchase. If the government buys corn, it will pay the local elevator price, so the farmer will in any event realize on whatever advance occurs in price this fall. PENSION BOARD TO STARTJOMQRROW The new county old age pension Doard meets tomorrow morning at the courthouse to organize and be- in work on 150 applications for pensions already received. Members of the board, who are Mrs. F. L. Tribon, Algona, Thos. Carmody, Whittemore, and S. V. Carter, of Swea City, attended a school of instruction at Spencer Tuesday. One of the first duties of the board will be to name an investigator, to be paid by the county. The investigator will be chosen from a list of applicants who recently wrote examinations for the job.

LOCKED PARKED CARS NUISANCE SATURDAYS Marshals Frank W. Green and H. S. Van Alstyne have been somewhat exasperated lately by the habit of, Algonians in parking their cars on State street Saturday nights in such a way as to block parking space. In many instances cars are left in one spot for several hours. Another pet peeve of the officers which causes a great deal of ^rou- ble unnecessarily is the practice of parking in the second row, then locking and braking the car, and going to a show or leaving the car for hours in the same spot. If a car must be locked for the peace of mind of the owner, the officers ask that the brakes be left off so it can be moved to let other cars out. The officers are doing to make it easy to park i street, but would like gonians at least at home or on B days, a»4 would, Ueyed oj Jj» * New Pool Hall to Open Next Week William Fisher and Alfred Peterson, who bought the Smith pool hall at sheriff's sale Friday, are remodeling and plan to reopen September 1, The interior of the building is undergoing a general housecleaning, and is being repapered.
