Wallace made a surprise visit to .he Kossuth corn-hog control committee Saturday, stopped an hour ;o talk with the members of tho committee, and then continued on an unheralded jaunt in the north central section of tho state. Mr. Wallace and his party came to Kossuth from Sac City and went east to Garner. Tho secretary was accompanied by J. S. Russell, Des Moines Register farm editor, and R. M. Evans, chairman, and Leslie M. Carl, members of the Iowa corn- hog board of review. Confers With Committee. The Kossuth committee was in session late Saturday afternoon when Mr. Wallace and his party walked unannounced into the rooms in the basement of the courthouse. County Chairman A. E. Clayton recognized him immediately and made introductions. Members of the committee found Mr. Wallace as common in his ways as an old shoe.

In a feature story in Sunday's Des Moines Register under an Algona dateline, Mr. Russell wrote as follows concerning Mr. Wallace's visit: "Chairman A. E. Clayton and other members of the corn-hog committee of Kossuth county as- ured the secretary of the popular- y of the New Deal for agriculture i this section. Wallace was told lis county has one of the largest, not the largest, number of con•acts of any one county in the nited States.

The trnnsmittal sheets from Washington were received Saturday. As a rule tho checks follow in three days, but Sunday and Labor day have intervened, and the checks had not yet arrived up to 2:80 p. in. yesterday. 'J'lie checks are not mailed direct to farmers but to the county committee, and the committee notifies farmers where to call for them. There will be several points of call about the county. Notices to call have been prepared in advance, with addressed envelopes, and within an hour or so after the checks are received the notices will be in the mail. It is estimated that the aggregate amount coming to the county in these checks at this time will be in the neighborhood of $500,000. by the Bancroft Lions from re so hard that ear worms no onger can carry on their depreda- ons. "Many fields that gave indication f yields of 40 to 60 bushels to the ere are to be found in this part, nd fodder and rough feed for live- ;ock are plentiful." Fodder Program. It is believed that Secretary Wai- ace's trip through northern Iowa vas a survey preparatory to form- lation of a fodder program announced Tuesday by the AAA. The government, via the AAA, under his plan guarantees a price of 6.50 to $8 a ton for baled coin- talks, provided the fodder is pre- erved under regulations to be an- lounced later. It will be used for eed in drought-stricken areas. As soon as details have oeen de- ermined the Kossuth corn-hog .ommittee plans to take over the vork here and help farmers realize >n this market for fodder. On the way here, and also in the jounty, Mr. Wallace and his party made stops now and then to go nto corn fields and examine the crop at first hand. The secretary s no novice when it comes to judg- ng corn fields. Lake Mills in a 15-inning game, score 4-3. Lichliter pitched for Bancroft and Bell for Lake Mills.

Gypsies Forced to Return Cash Taken From North Ender Sheriff Dahlhauser and Deputy Loss recovered $16.10 from a carload of gypsies Monday afternoon. The money was "pickpocketed from Charles Kollasch, farmer three miles north of Bancroft the same day. The sheriff was notified and drove north out of Algona to stop the car, which was a large green Lincoln. He met it coming Into town as he crossed the bridge, and he had to turn around and speed up to 60 mph to catch it at a point near Athletic park. The money was taken from the gypsies and they were ordered out of town. Nearly ¥65 was got by gypsies in Kossuth not long ago, but they had left before local officers were notified. Half Corn Loans Paid. County Recorder Dooley went through bis books September 1, and estimates that nearly 1,800 Kossutn farmers have been released from corn loans. At this rate nearly half of the corn loans have been releas- BOTH FOOTBALL TEAMS PREPAREJ-OR SEASON Coach Kenneth Mercer began the annual football season on the opening day of school Monday by issuing football suits to men getting out for the sport. No practice was held Tuesday, the high school band taking away a number of prospective players, so only a short warming-up drill was held. Coach Mercer hopes to begin practice in earnest next week, for the first game of the season is scheduled for Friday, September 21, against Livermore. This game will be at night, and practice will he held after dark to get players used RAINFALL GOES OVER NORMAL FOR AUGUST Rain Monday amounting to .65 inches seemed a threat to the success of the county fair, but Tuesday cleared up and,was clear and neither too hot nor too cool. Yesterday, however, was again cloudy, and a drizzle was falling in the forenoon. August was again a wet month, the third in succession above normal rainfall. Rains last Thursday and Friday brought the total for the month to 3.91 inches, while normal is 3.67. Since June 13.87 inches have fallen, against 11.77 inches normal. Thus we have had two inches of extra rain, which should take up some of the slack of the drought last spring.

Three suits for damages aggregating $27,434 were filed in district court Tuesday against Supervisor F. J. Balgeman, Whittemore. They are the aftermath of the automobile collision west of town a few weeks ago in which Mr. Balgeman's son Raymond and John Batt were killed. Asks $25,000 for Death. William Batt, father of John, asks $25,000 for the death of his son, bringing suit as administrator of the young man's estate. In an additional personal suit the elder Batt asks $200 damages to his car his son was driving, $1,000 for anticipated services of the son, $200 for anticipated services of another son, Vern, injured in the same crash, $26 for medical services, and $8.75 for hospital care. In a third suit filed by Mr. Batt on behalf of his minor son Vern Mr. Batt asks $1,000 for damages, [alleging probable permanent injury [to the boy's back. The accident occurred June 29 just west of the Hobarton corner. Young Balgeman was driving east at midnight to Algona to take home his father, who had returned from an out-of-town supervisors' meeting and was waiting on the courthouse lawn. Cars Collide Near Bridge. The two Batt boys, John driving, were en route to their home southwest of Algona, and the cars collided just east of a bridge. The Batt petition alleges that the Balgeman car was thrown into the Batt car because of a depression in the road. The Batt 1928 Chevrolet and the Balgeman model A Ford coupe were both completely wrecked. All three petitions allege carelessness on the part of young Balgeman, claiming that he did not slow up for the bridge, which is narrow, and that the Batt car yielded more than half of the road. Galbraith and Heise Site Is P. O. Location The location of the new post- office building lias been settled. Postmaster McDonald lias received notice from Washington that the site trill be the corner next oust of the Advance shop. The corner business lot and the business lot next south are owned by the Geo. L. Galbraith estate nnd the business lot next south of them by the C. E. Heise estate. The Galbraith and Heise estates, by E. ,T. Hough nnd Dr. IJ. W. Heise, Emmetsbnrg, legal representatives, united to offer these lots at $0,000 and the government has accepted the bid. The Hodges building will be wrecked in accordance with government requirement, and it is understood that a group of some ten persons has subscribed the purchase of the old lacy laundry property and will wreck the building. The next question is the letting for construction of the building, but the date and place are not yet known here. The selection of the site meets with general expectation here, and no complaint of consequence has been heard. AUGUST AUTO SALES THIRTY-EIGHT CARS Nineteen more new automobiles were sold in Kossuth in the last two weeks of August to bring the total licensed at the county treasurer's office to 38 for the month. The total for the year is now well over 300. Buyers were: Fords—Peter Schmit, Bode; Mrs. J. P. Kirsch, Ottosen; George Gengler, Whittemore; Ralph I. Beebe, Lakota; Dr. W. D. Andrews, R. P.

Hansen, of Garner, came to Algona Saturday, and got George Schumacher, 27, Irvington, who had been in the Kossuth jail since May, awaiting trial in connection with the torture robbery of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar J. Eisenman, near Woden, on the night of March 15, 1933. At Garner Schumacher was taken before Judge T. A. Breadmore, and on a plea of guilty was sentenced to serve three years at Fort Madison, after which he was then paroled to Sheriff Hanson during good behavior. Schumacher had been held with four others now serving 25 years at Fort Madison. The plea was changed from robbery with aggravation to conspiracy. Schumacher refused the services of an attorney and offered the guilty plea on his own motion. Fast Record Earns Fnrole. The past record of Schumacher had been thoroughly investigated by officials and it was found that he had never before been arrested or brought before the law. This was taken in consideration and be was granted the parole. Schumacher, who was thought to have been the tipoff man in the case, was not implicated in the robbery. Joe Thilges, an uncle of Schumacher and now serving a 25-year sentence at Fort Madison, invited Schumacher who was husking corn not far, from the Eisenman farm to go with him pheasant hunting in the fall of 1932. They passed the farm of Mr. and Mrs. Eisenman and Thilges asked Schumacher who lived there and he told him. Schumacher had no knowledge of his uncle's activities outside the law, he claimed in court.

Drivers Warned to Observe the Rules Mayor C. F.lpecht published notice last week to car drivers to be more careful about observing tiaf- fic laws and ordinances. Slipping past stop signs, speeding in the city limits, and parking evils must be dealt with, the mayor believes, and if warnings do not serve resort must be had to punishment.

The first such event was a big success, and L. J. Nelson, owner of the store, is expecting another record crowd this time. * There will be another clown for the amusement of the children, and more prizes displayed in the store windows will be given away. "Candy Stick" cookies baked in a Glowmaid will be served free all afternoon and evening. Children must be accompanied by parents. On a new Glowmaid a dollar a year will be allowed for the oldest range reported which is still in use. Intrigued by last week's announcement that a Glowmaid would be used without chimney connection, an Advance reporter inquired into how it will be done. This is a secret which will be revealed to other inquirers on "circus" day. Sleeping Sickness Victim Discovered Abe Kenne, Whittemore,' was brought to Algona Monday, and Tuesday was taken before the county insanity commission, which found that he was suffering with sleeping sickness. He was taken to the Kossuth hospital for treatment. The man was so much asleep that though he was awakened for supper Monday evening, he could not be awakened Tuesday morning for breakfast. He was carried from the jail to the courthouse before he was examined and taken to the Cink, Wesley, Ernest Punke, with. Plymouths — Henry Bros., Algona; Dodge—Jos. H.

POOL DEFICIT LESS THAN BTK AND '33 The swimming pool closed its most successful season in three years Friday night. Though receipts again failed to clear expenses, the deficit this year is smaller than before, being $105.82, as compared with $217.95 last year and $111 in 1932. Despite these losses, the margin of receipts over disbursements in 1930 and 1931 the first years of the pool's operation, leaves a net balance in the pool fund. In 1930 the pool cleared $1,900, with gross receipts of more than $3700, as compared with gross receipts this year of only $1,625.72. Last year's receipts were $1,526.70; 1932 receipts a little more than $1500; and 1931 receipts more than $2,800. Early indications were that this season would again show a profit, but cool weather set in earlier than was expected. Expenses were $1741.54, as compared with $1744.65 Four Get 25 Tears Each. Mr. and Mrs. Eisenman were bound and gagged in their home and forced to reveal the hiding place of several thousand dollars early on the night of March 15, 1933. Leo Besch, Bode, who was sentenced at Fort Dodge last winter on a statutory charge and had served some time at Fort Madison before being brought here to face the torture robbery charge, was sentenced tp 25 years along with Thilges. Ole Thorsland, Bode, and Estel Andres, Decatur, 111., are also serving terms of 25 years at Fort Madison. W. A. Peters, Burt, Escapes When Car Wrecked by Train Burt, Sept. 4—W. A. Peters narrowly escaped death Friday afternoon, when a freight train struck the model T Ford car he was driving three miles north of Burt. The car was completely demolished, but Mr. Peters escaped with a dislocated collar hone, several cuts and bruises and was badly shaken up. D. T. Hobson, who was driving cattle in the field near-by saw the train approaching and waved and yelled a warning, but Mr. Peters failed to grasp his meaning or didn't hear in time to stop. His brother, Dr. W. T. Peters, was called to care for his injuries, and it is believed he will not suffer any serious consequences from the By the uncomfortably narrow- margin of one-hundredth of an.. inch the rainfall yesterday up to 1 p. m. was enough to earn the insurance to cover gate receipts at the county fair. The gauge registered .21 inch, and the insurance, policy called for ,20 inch. Just as the 1 o'clock whistle blew; L. M. Merritt, government weather observer, C. R. La Barre, insurance agent, and Secretary E. L. Vincent- entered the yard at Mr. Merritt'a. home, and Mr. Merritt dropped the measuring' stick into the govern* ment gauge. Guage Sounded Empty! There was a hollow sound as the stick touched bottom, and it was a; nervous moment for Mr. Vincent when the stick was withdrawn^ However, there was no doubt that' it showed a full .21 inch, and this entitled the fair to $2,000 from the- insurance company. Yesterday's rain put an effective- the hadL Tuesday's attendance was estimated at 6,000, a record for the opening day of the fair. The day was sunny and comfortably warm. An unusual circumstance Tuesday was the fact that instead of th& flow of criticism which had marked some fairs in recent years comment was universally favorable,, particularly as regarded exhibits*, free attractions, and consessions. Algonians Buy 400 Tickets. A whirlwind drive to sell season,, tickets was staged by the Algona. Community club Tuesday morningj.. After a mass meeting at the courthouse, workers went up and down, the business streets, and by one. o'clock more than.400 season tickets had been sold. All places of: business took at least five, and many took more. As a result a record was hung up, on season ticket sales, and for the first time in history the fair was sold out of season tickets by Tuesday. An additional 500 had to be printed before Tuesday noon t» take care of the ordinary call at the fair grounds gates. Besides the 400 season tickets; sold in Algona, an equal number, it is believed, have been sold in the county by township salesmen. Fair Acclaimed as Best, This year's fair is generally acclaimed as best in every line, and' it is regarded as peculiarly unfortunate that yesterday's weather was bad. The four main hippodrome acts, the Flying Valentines, the McDonald Trio, Cortello's dogs, and Cook & Wiswell's comedy trick. auto drew hearty and repeated applause from Tuesday's crowds. The. elephant "Mine" particularly drew the attention of children, and the Fair. (Continued on page 8.)
