' COUNTY FARM BUREAU HOLDS 'PEP'JANQUET Event Opens a Drive Throughout County for Members. By Rachel B. Becker. "Are you going to join the Farm townships out of were represented Bureau? 1 Twenty-seven 28 in Kossuth Friday night at a Farm' Bureau banquet in the Methodist church. Every table was filled with farmers and farmwives. a total of almost 140. One to eight persons attended from each township. Peppy Farm Bureau songs were sung before dinner and between courses, with Mrs. A. L. Brown at the piano. County Agent Brown presided and introduced the principal speaker, B. B. Hamilton, state Farm Bureau secretary. Future is Studied. Mr. Hamilton asked some very thought-providing questions, then answered them. Three questions were: 1—"Who will own the farms in Kossuth 36 years from now, if we make the same progress inthe same direction that we have in the last 36 years?" 2-"How many times can you divide a farm?" 3-"Was it sense to have $2.50 hogs and ten- cent corn in 1932?" Mr. Hamilton went .to say that one-fourth of the A-No.. 1 land in the nation is in Iowa, but few know it, because farmers here have failed to advertise their goods. Californians, which was not hit so hard by the depression, spent from $7.60 to $40.10 a carload to advertise their fruits; Iowa creameries spend only a dollar a carload to advertise its milk, butter, etc., and hog;rowers spend, only 25c a carload, some of the banqueters spoke briefly. Kossuth Leaders Speak. • After Mr. Hamilton's address Joseph Skow, Wesley, said: "The farmers must reorganize from a national standpqint as well as the local stand point. He introduced other impromptu speakers. Myron Johnson, northwest Kossuth farmer, once county Farm Bureau president, said, "When it comes to Farm Bureau membership work, tho job isn't so easy. I hinl^ we have been passing it on to 'George' too long." SimonfLeigh,. Irvington, said: "I think it'is up to us to get mernber- ihip for the Farm Bureau organi- Guy M. Butts, oldest in point- of continous zation.' Banker Wesleyan residence, said: "I believe in the irinciples of the Farm Bureau. I enow we must do something." Solicit Memberships. Ray McWhorter, Portland, said: 'I wonder whether, if we start ad- ertising, we can increase the ca- >acity for eating, or shall we just >e competing with California's ad- ertising? I have always been a Farm Bureau member, and I will go out and solicit memberships." Mrs. Innran, Bancroft, gave a brief sketch of the woman's project or this year, which is child care and training. She said, "Let's make his an outstanding year for our lomemakers." The Rev. W. L. Patterson, pastor f tho Methodist church at Titon<a, gave a short speech in which IB said: "There isn't a problem in earth today that we can't solve. t is for lack of organization that have not what you ought' to ALGONA WINS FROM CLARION IN THRILLER Lead is Changed Six Times in Free Scoring Battle. By ». 15. Gios. Playing before the largest crowd of the year the Algona Bulldog! again lived up to their name by out-scoring a classy Clarion football team to win 20-19.' Though Clarion started with „, rush to make six straight downs the Bulldogs held on the 3-yd. line and it wasn't till late in the first quarter that Clarion recovered an Algona fumble on Algona's 2G-yd line. A series of passes netted them a touchdown. The try for the point failed. Then on the third play after,-the kickoff Lynk faded back to throw a long pass to McNeil, who caught it on the 5-yd. line and then scampered over the goal line for the touchdown. The point after touchdown was good, a pass Lynk to Muckey. Algona 7. Clarion 6. Just as the half ended Clarion again completed a pass, Sharp to Bowman, for another score, but the try for point was no good and the score was Clarion 12, Algona 7 The second half opened by Algona kicking to the Clarion 20-yd. line and recovering a fumble on the play at that spot. Algona then drove to the Clarion 3-yd.. line where they lost the ball on downs. • Clarion punted, and in five plays Algona scored a second touchdown, Long carrying it over from the 1- yd, Jine. A pass, Lynk to McNeil, again converted .the extra point. Algona kicked off to Clarion's 13-yd. line, .and on perhaps the most sensational play of the game Tomke, Clarion quarterback, ran 87 yds. for a'touchdown. The extra point was good'and the score was Clarion 19 Algona 14. After an exchange of punts Algona again scored on a pass, Lynk to Muckey, just seconds before the game ended to make the score Algona 20, Clarion, 19. With two more games to go Al- jona has a good chanco of setting the best record in years. Support at Eagle Grove Wednesday afternoon is suggested, and it is hoped that the band can be sent to continue support. The "never say die spirit" is certainly evident in Algona's .team. It seems the boys go best when the odds are against them. The spirit the boy are showing should help after their school days are over. Coach Berger and his assistant also come in for their share of the praise. Never this season have I seen Algona pull a boner in judge- ment. For Algona Lynk's punting, passing and running was outstanding, with the, rest of the boys due for their share of glory. For Clarion, Sharp and Tomke were the star performers. Clarion used just a little to much gusto in their play as Algona was trying for their third* touchdown and the crowd went into a mild up- All That's Left of Car roar, but subsided quickly. Perhaps a record was set for mve." Get Membership! Frank L. Ryerson, Burt, another ormer county Farm Bureau presi- lent, compared Mr. Hamilton to Socrates, the man of many ques- ions. "My answer to all," said Mr. Ryerson, ''is membership 1 '. Mrs. Ray Miller, girls' 4-H coun- y club chairman, told of tha in- rease in 4-H Interest throughout he county. "Last year we had nine »irls' clubs," she said; "this year we had 12; and next year iect to have 18." Harry Bode, Plum Creek farmer, aid, "There are too many people vho don't appreciate our farm pro;ram and realize that it means pro- it for them as well as for us. 1 ' Miss Pepoon, Kossuth's H. D. A., was calle^ for, and tvie burden of ier remarks was, "I am to help he girls, and I will do it anytime nywhere." ' This banquet was a 'pep' meeting roceeding a county Farm Bureau membership drive. • Three Permits to Wed. % Only three licenses to wed were ssued last week: Vernon Eggles- o», -Marvel Davidson, both of Luerne; Carl F. SeMnge.r, Lauise Jichie, bota oJ Hudson, 'Wis.; garl Meier, Arie.n.e gei$z, b.oti pit B^rt. there were no qff-sides penalties in the entire game. Algona made 12 tiowns to 9 for Clarion. Editor's note—The crowd at Friday night's football game between Algona and Clarion saw more football in the hour and three-quarters the game lasted than any similar period in recent football history. Spectacular events included an 87-yd. run by Clarion's Tomke on a kick-off; an Algona forward pass that traveled 50 yards in the air to be good for a score; each team leading three times, and Algona coming from behind three times to win the game. Many spectators expressed sympathy for those numerous Algon- ians who passed up tha high school game to see Notre Dame beat Minnesota 7-6 at Minneapolis. The Algona-Clarion game had more excitement packed into any one quarter than the entire Minneapolis game. Both teams wore in to win. Neither woudl give an inch to the other without it being doubly earned: Passes, laterals, double and triple crossbucks, recovered fum- the winning play in the last minute goal-line stands—all were found in this one game many times. Even the winnig play in the last minute of the game was present, for after the final Algona score Algona just had time to kick-off and Clarion had only time to make one play before the referee waved his arms that the ball game was^ over. He had to wave—the whistle couldn't be heard. Algona students and a few students of many years ago let loose with pent-up* emotion after the game. The high school band, accompanied by a throng of almost hysterical rooters paraded up State street, and jammed traffic -at State remained of the Tim ^,.™i "V" " n '? nt witn a truck near Livermore.

There will, be no .pheasant shooting in Iowa this year, as the result of action taken by the state conservation commission which has voted a closed season, after several weeks of investigation. The decision was announced Friday. Closed seasons were also voted on mink, muskrats, and Hungarian partridges. Only'an open season on quail in 12 sourthern Iowa counties as left. The last legislature, in revision of the conservation regulations, list ed an open pheasant season for Nov. 12-14 in 40 Iowa counties. The revision, however, gave the state commission power to change or cancel dates if conditions were 'ound unfavorable. The supreme court had outlawed the supposed power of the com- nission to make regulations, but :he commission can still find conditions at variance with proposed open seasons. Conservation officials estimate hat the order disallowing an open oheasant season will result in the sale of 20,000 fewer hunting licenses in the state this year. 'This gear's survey has disclosed 'ewer than one-third of the num- )cr of birds in pheasant counties compared with the census of lost year. Whirring farm machinery cnives last spring and summer iroved almost as devastating to the pheasant population as the 193'536 coldest winter in 117 years. The birds also suffered two bad breaks last spring and summer. The wet spring drove hens from natural cover and they nested in alfalfa fields, fields before The cutting of these the broods came on killed some 60 per cent of the probable generation of birds and the eggs, the survey found. The hens moved into wheat and oats fields and these crops also were cut before new broods could come on, and substantial losses again were suffered. Surviving broods are exceptionally large, the usual number being eight to ten birds, compared to the average brood of six to eight birds heretofore. Northern Iowa hunters this year who have been disappointed in the wild duck season may now migate to the 12 southern Iowa counties for quail-shooting. The season is open all this month. The counties open are Lucas, Ap- nalnouse. Monroe, Wapello, Davis, Van Buren, Jefferson, Henry, Lee. Des Moines, Louisa and Muscatine. Many sourthern Iowa hunters come to north Iowa for the pheasant season when it is open, and if'north- ern Iowa hunters now seek southern Iowa quail turn-about will be fair play. MISS HEWITT MRS.

Three are dead and three mora- poople in the Kossuth hospital in a critical condition as the result of a crash Friday night 2% miles- northwest of Livermore when a car and a truck loaded with cattlo collided on a curve. The dead are Seward Thornton, 40, of Livormore, formerly of Irvington, Mrs. Charles Armstrong-. 39. sister-in-law of Thornton, and Fern Hewitt, employed by Mrs 4 Armstrong. The injured are Mrs. Thornton and the two Thornton sons, Ronald, 15, and Robert, 6. Mrs. Thornton suffered a broken jawbone and her face was severely bruised and battered. She also has a (badly lacerated arm. Neither of the boys, had fully regained consciousness up to last night. Child's Condition Critical. Robert, the youngest, was still m a critical condition, and had & restless afternoon, it was reported yesterday. He is believed to have a fractured skull and a severe concussion of the brain. His front teeth were knocked out in tha crash, and his face was also badly bruised. Ronald, while not believed in as serious condition as Robert, was still semi-conscious yesterday, and is suffering from a severe concussion, and a possible fractured skull. His. teeth were also knocked out and his face otherwise bruised. All three are given fair chances to recover if complications do not set in. , Headlights Blamed. : 'Blinding headlights are given as a possible^ cause of the accident. The truck was driven by James Johnson, of Lu Verne, and he was accompanied by his wife and child, but they escaped injury in the accident. The truck, with a. semi- trailer, was loaded with 20 head of cattle, and in the crash the stock was hurled onto the'Thorn- ton automobile. Mrs. ^Armstrong and Mr. Thornton were crushed to death, dying almost instantly. Miss Hewitt lived about 45 minutes, dying en route to the Kossuth hospital. The injured were picked up and brought to Algona immediately. Just how the accident happened 's not definitely known. The car and truck, it is reported by some, collided almost head-on, while others say the car struck the truck near the junction of the truck and the semi-trailer. By some quirk of fate none of the cattle were killed or seriously injured. The cattle were being taken from Lu Verne to Livermore. The Thorntons were en route to Algona to visit, and later planned to go to Irvington, their old home. Traffic Jam Eesults. Highway patrolmen were at the scene of the crash shortly after it happened. The patrol car stopped a speeding motorist for failure to dim his lights, and tha motorist turned out to be a relative hurrying to the crash scene and the patrolmen accompanied him. Traffic jammed at the scene of the accident soon after news spread, and patrolmen stayed and kept the cars moving. 'Services, as described in Irvington news on page two of this week's Advance, were held at Irvington for Mr. Thornton yesterday. Two other funerals were held the same day^The first, at one o'clock, was for Miss Hewitt at the Livermore Methodist church, with the .Rev. Harvey Nelson in charge, and burial was made at Livermore. She was born and raised at Livermore. She is survived by her parents, nine sisters, and five brothers: Mrs. Gladys Christy, Storm Lake; Mrs. Lucille Flickinger. of Port Dodge; Mrs. Evelyn Lothringer, Dakota City; Mrs. Thelma Knonf. Sexton; Russell, Mason : City; Con ' .oil,.Spokane; and Violet, Marjlorie, Nadine, Donna, Gerald. Beverly, Richard, and Darrell, all of Liver- ' more. Burial at Ln Terne. Services for Mrs. Armstrong fol- . lowed at the same church at 3 o'clock the same afternoon with, the Rev. Mr. Nelsoij in charge, and burial was made- at Lu Verne. Mrs, Armstrong was Alma Riley before her marriage, a daughter' of Joha .Riley. who lives at Irvington. The Armstrongs were married in 1915, and her husband and four sons survive. The sons are Mil, ton, Earle, Floyd, and Donald, all of Livermore. She is also survived by three sisters, three brothers, and her father. The trio of deaths brought the Iowa highway toll for the year to 444, 16 above the number on the same day a year ago. The deaths, cojn'bined with, the ten from Ren-? wick killed in a bus tragedy a week before at Mason City, filled the northeast corner of Humboldt county and the southeast corner of Kossutb. county -with sadness.
