Home Fair Attractive. The Home Fair exhibits drew much attention again this year, and the number of exhibits was greater than ever before, filling the wall and center spaces of the gymnasium floor. In previous Home Fairs the center space was not all taken, but this year all exhibit space was occupied. Exhibitors were Botsford Lumber Co., Bjustrom's, Algona Ice Cream and Candy Factory; Grahams, Kohlhaas and Spilles, F. S. Norton and Son, Foster Furniture Kresensky's, Cowan Bldg.

Moore, Algona, has nounced candidacy for lemocratic nomination MAYOR Tells His Side TO THE CITIZENS OF ALGONA I wish to make a statement to set minds at rest in regards to the article carried in the Saturday Shopper and the Tuesday Algona Upper DCS Moines about the dismissal of one of the marshals. The writer evidently does not know the mayor's rights, or does not want to know, to make. I have no apology an- the for congress in .the seventh Iowa listrict. This is the district now •epresented by 01 h a> D. Wearin, democrat, who has announced candidacy for the democratic senatorial nomination in opposition to Sen. Guy M. Gillette, Iherokee. Committee Is Boosting. A committee of ten men at Dunlap Is promoting Doctor Moore's candidacy. TJiis committee represents a Moore for Congress club. The committee is having nomination papers circulated. Doctor Moore, who is a veterinarian, served as Harrison county The statute reads that the mayor, upon and after taking the oath of office, shall appoint a marshal, who is chief of police, and may appoint as many as he deems necessary to keep the peace and order. The statute also gives the mayor full authority to dismiss anyone he may have appointed, and this CITY TO PURCHASE NEW DIESEL FOR ELECTRIC PLANT Notice appears jn this week's issue of proposed purchase by the city of a new engine to develop electric power. The new engine is of the Diesel type, similar to Iron Works Co., of St. Louis, and is ofthe diesel type, similar to those already in use in the city power plant. The need of a new engine at the plant has been apparent for some time, for the increasing electric load has made necessary an average increase jn the running time of all the engines. Two of the engines, the smallest, are now some 20 years old, and while still in good condition, will require more for reasons of his own, which mayj more ex Pensive repairs as be for neglect of duty, or failing to cooperate, or may be personal; and this docs not subject the mayor to a public hearing. A petition of a small minority of the actual voters of A'lgona was filed for the consideration of the city council. For your benefit the Council in a matter of this kind cannot act as a judge or jury. The Council has the same right to dismiss appointees it may have made without outside interference. The writer said in one of his articles that the mayor had some representative in the 45th, extra, 46th, 46th extra, and 45th and time passes. The purchase by the city is to be made for cash, and the proposed price is $61,046, which is considered an excellent deal for a 3000-h. p. engine of this type. The practice of the city of building up a cash reserve to purchase needed equipment instead of issuing bonds, is again proving economical. Not only is the interest which wbuld have to be .paid on the bonds saved, but a better price for the original purchase can be obtained because it is a cash deal. w.-w.uu tuin, UJiVi 1HCLJ\JI JJtlU.

Appointed a member of the state conservation commission last year, Doctor Moore appears to have the confidence of Governor Kraschel and other state democratic leaders. "There are, however, several other democratic candidates for the Wearin seat. Doctor Moore has for 25 years been a resident at Dunlap, a town of 1500 inhabitants on the north always tried to be impartial to the best of my ability, and in this matter I have done nothing more than any individual or merchant would do in regard to any of his help. For your further information, the mayor is the executive of the police department, and so surely has the right to appoint such help as he deems will cooperate for the foest interests of the community; and for still further consideration, if you have anything to edge of Harrison county, some 40 su ' bmlt , report It to me, and I will - - give it my careful and best attention. I hope this will clear up some of the pro and con discussion that is said has been going on. I thank one and all for cooperation extended In the past. C. F. Specht, Mayor.

He was reared in Union township, Kossuth county, and is a graduate of the State college, Ames. He has practiced 25 years at Dunlap. Public Life Epetomizcd. A sketch of Doctor Moore's public activities published by the Dunlap Reporter and sent out 'by the committee promoting his congressional candidacy says: "For the past 20 years Doctor, Moore has acted in the capacity of either city councilman, mayor, or a member of the board of education. He is a World war veteran, having had two years of service, 14 months of which were spent overseas. He has teen active in Legion affairs, and has twice been selected post commander. Serves in Legislature. "Doctor Moore was elected representative to the state legislature in 1932, and served during the 45th, 45th extra, the 46th, 46th extra, and the 47th sessios. He was selected as majority leader in the House for the 46th and 47th sessions, and he was active in support of the administration program. He served on ten of the most important committees'in the House, was identified with the legislative program pertaining to conservation in Iowa, and is now serving as a memlber of the state conservation commission. "Doctor Moore's public service has given him the opportunity to become familiar with all branches of government. He says he is in accord with the economic, social, and political principles advocated by this administration and that he w.ill lend his support to that pro gram." * deal the city, and that means taxpayers and electricity users, save some $40,000. Official notice of the proposed purchase and of a hearing a week from Monday appears in this week's Advance. NEW STANDARD FOR MILK SET UP BY COUNCIL Ordinance is Passed Providing for Permits. A new milk ordinance was passed last Thursday evening by the city council, and official publication is made this week in the Advance. A new set of rules for sanitation, distribution, production and handling of milk and the milk products is set up toy the ordinance, Section one is descriptive, and outlines the meanings of various terms used in the ordinance. Second two prohibits the adulteration of milk by water, dirt, sickness of The the FARMERS SEEK BETTER BASIS FOR DAYMEN? Committee Named by Board to Look Into Law. Fifty farmers jammed the Bounty auditor's office yesterday afternoon for the hearing on reos- essment in Humboldt-Kossuth oint drain No. 2, and a large lumlber of objections, both writ,en and veribal were made. Members of the board of supervisors from Humboldt and Kossuth counties heard the protests, and Auditor Johnson, of Humboldt acted as secretary of the two- 3oards. Assessment Questioned. Notice was recently published giving the assessment figures for each 40-acre tract in the district, and this hearing was held for objections. Most of the objection centered around the method of assessing the charges for work recently done by CCC t>oys in cleaning out the main ditch of the drain. The main difficulty, however, centered around the manner in. which the assessments were made some 30 years ago when the ditch was first constructed. Then the assessment was levied aganist the property, and when the laterals, were constructed the farmers, draining into the laterals were required to pay a proportionate share of the main, ditch and the entire cost of the laterals. Object to Basis Used. When the assessment percentage. was drawn up at that time the lateral and main ditch costs were umped instead of being separated, and now, 30 years later, when reassessment was made, the cost was again based on lump. But only ;he main ditch was cleaned, hence 'armers on the laterals are objecting to having the present assessment based on the old high figures. Farmers on the main ditch, however, claim that those on the laterals should pay a larger proportionate share because farmers on the the animal or other causes, third section provides for AND THEN, DARN IT, ANOTHER BLIZZARD! Chill, windy weather during the last week was climaxed Tuesday night, when snow began to fall, and by yesterday morning six inches of "the (alleged) beautiful" covered the ground. This snowstorm was, in fact, one of the worst of the winter, though not so cold. Wind whipped the snow into drifts in the country all day yesterday. The county had removed many of the snow fences, and some roads were reported I of-Algoua attorneys in the cose '" was taken to Rochester, Minn., seriously sick. Trial of the two cases will depend upon the speed blocked. The fall was damp, and it amounted to .73 inch moisture. Snow soaks into the ground more than, rain, because it thaws slowly. The moisture was needed, for there is a deficiency for the winter.

Three 'In Bad* in the Danson Court and 2 Draw Fines Louis F. Behounek, Livermore, was fined $10 plus $2 costs in Justice Danson's. court Monday for no muffler and clearance lights on his truck.

The complete text of the ordinance is published officially on page 7 of this issue of the Advance, and the ordinance is effective by its publication today. 9 ', Garage is Discontinued. Elmer Dole, who had operated a garage in the quarters on State former street Eltoert during the last few months, discontinued the 'business Saturday, will do road construction work at Woodbine for Jonn Schumacher. Car Number is Beturned, In last weels'e Advance there was a paragraph to William Metsger, Whittemore, that one of bis car license plates had been brought in. Shortly after the paper main ditch suffered losses through lamage to crops by workmen on j the main ditch, whereas the lateral "armers were not so affected. Committee is Named. After hearing arguments and, some discussion, the two boards lamed a committee composed of, the two county auditors, -the two '. county engineers, and the two county drainage attorneys, to con- • sider the protests and see if a msis for an equitable reassessment can be worked out without reclassification of all lands in the district. : The joint boards then adjourned ;ill April 26, when the committee is to report at 10 o'clock in the morning. The hearing will then 36 continued and possiJble action taken, depending upon the report. Members of the board felt that ;here was considerable merit in :he positions taken by both the farmers on the main ditch and :hose on the laterals, hut think ;hat the law regarding assessment requires such levy. The committee may find provisions otherwise. Excessive Cost Charged. Another basis for complaint was ;he fact that when the work was first brought up for consideration the cost was estimated at 10 per cent, whereas the assessment was for 41 per cent when the work was completed. The district starts a mile east of West Bend, in Garfield township, and angles southeast into Humboldt county between Lotta reek and the Rock Island right- of-way. -*Seventy Examined by X-Rays in the T. B. Clinic Here Seventy persons were examined via x-rays in the county tubercu- .ar ' clinic last week Thursday at the Kossuth hospital. Many reacted, but that doesn't mean that they actually have the disease. It could be that they, had at sometime been infected, but do not now irnve it. The records were sent to Des Moines, where definite results will be learned. The state department of health sent two : doctors and a nurse here to conduct the clinic. The Chrismas Seal committee, of which Mrs. J. W. Little is chairman, asked for the survey. To Be Ordained in May, St. Joe.
