After bus iness- & abort program will be giv en. Titonka officials were puzzled all week before last because of unaccustomed heavy drain of water. It forced the level in the water tank down eight feet or more every day. One day last week the mystery was solved, when water overflowed basement windows in the Lester Callies tenant house, unoccupied. The basement was found filled, a four-inch sewer pipe not having been sufficient to carry off the flood of water. No one had left the water on. It was merely that a pipe between the 0 outside and the meter had frozen and broken. Now the Titonka city dads are in a "puzzlement"—• who's to pay? The water did not go through the meter, because the pipe broke on the town's side. And if anyone's to pay—how much? H, D, A, GIVES SOME LOCKER GOODS ADVICE Says Don't Let Meats Stand After Taking Them Out. Meat'and other perishables kept n a freezer-locker should not be allowed-to stand after -they are taken home, warns Lucile Pepoon, Kossuth H. D. A. This is because the cells have )een broken down to some extent n storage, and so it is easier for .he many organisms present to >egin the process of spoilage than n strictly fresh meat, Miss Pepoou said. Patrons taking meat from a ocker are advised to avoid tear- ng the moisture-proof parchment wrappings from other packages of meat remaining in the locker. The spoilage and the drying of meat results from torn wrappings. Beef and lamb may be kept in. locker indefinitely, while pork probably should not be kspt more ban four months. The larger amount of fat in pork makes it more difficult to keep, since the 'at may oxidize. Before investing in a locker, Miss Pepoon suggets that the 'arm family consider: How much meat, vegetables, and fruit the ocker wil hold, and how much will be available for storage; distance from farm to locker, or expense of transportation; home facilities for keeping frozen foods. Unless a locker is close at hand, t probably would not be practical enough meat for one BOWLING TEAMS TIE FOR FIRST AND 2ND The local bowling alleys were busy Tuesday evening when a double header was played. The charity hall had caused postponement of the Junior C. C.-Skelly game till that night, when the Courthouse and Phillips also played. The Courthouse won two games from Fillips, and the Junior C.

Pageant is Praised, The pageant, "100 Years in Ai- gona", was applauded repeatedly yy the crowd, and the numbers were ably, given by the cast. The history" was composed and read >y Eugene Murtagh, who was highly complimented on both the ontents and the presentation; r. Murtagh spent many hours >ouring over county histories and booklets, and in talking with pioneers, to be certain that the his- ory would be authentic. Committees worked hard in jreparation for the event, and par- icularly the ticket selling commit- ee, which sold tickets far in ex- ess of the number hoped for by he originators of the plan of hav- ng the Charity ball. The extra unds secured will go a long way n prevention of suffering among underprivileged children during he coming year.

This particularly true of children, for ounty and other relief agencies an and do take -care of the fam- lies as far as possible. In deigning the Charity ball it was not he intention' of the committee hat the money should be used as. , dole, but to supply < the vital Leeds of growing underprivileged hildren. • : It is also hoped that the money ralue wiH be enhanced by a cost price on articles or services rendered for which the money comes rom the fund.
