'DICK' FAVORED TO WIN G, 0, P, NOMINATION Democrats of County Thought to be for Gillette (By W. C. Dewel) Public interest In the state primary contests has centered on the senatorial battles, and mainly on the democratic contest because of the factional rumpus precipitated by the Wearin candidacy against Gillette. In the republican contest Senator Dickinson and Congressman Thurston have been conducting intensive but unspectacular campaigns. Outside influences have not interfered and the candidates have engaged in no bitter invectives against each other. Each will be able to support the other if the other is nominated. It Looks Like TOick.' Though because of the quiet campaigns, prediction is unusually difficult and unreliable, many experienced observers give Dickinson the odds to' win. He Is more widely known and since Mr. Thurston was kept at Washington till late in the campaign Dickinson had the opportunity for a statewide canvass. There has been the usual mid- tor'm trend away from the party in power, and many republican voters who have gone democratic in recent years tend now to return to the party of their upbringing. There is, too, general recognition that after all, "Dick" has mostly been right in his political attitude as regards the New Deal. It is generally believed that he will reap many thousands of votes because of admiration for his uncompromising and courageous stand. Democrats in "Mess". On the other side of the political fence the democrats find themselves in "a fine mess" as a result of outside intereference. President Roosevelt is, at least nominally, keeping hands off, but a little Washington coterie of left-wingers, all appointees, none ever elected to anything, and none ever heard of before the last two or three years, recently undertook chastisement of Senator Gillette because of his anti- court packing stand last year. Governor Kraschel, Senator Herring, State Charman Birmingham, Congressmen Harrington and Bierman, and most other democratic state leaders are for Gillette, but have had to see their attitudes flouted by the Washington coterie. It is understood that on this account there is a lot of hard political feeling between Des Moines and Washington. Interest Becomes Nationwide. The situation has now become of national democratic moment, and the result is awaited with intense interest. The Washington coterie's candidate, Wearin, a congressman heretofore not much known outsido his own district, has bitterly assailed Gillette, and such a split has developed among the democrats that success of their nominee, whichever he may be, seems doubtful in the fall elections. Kossuth for Gillette. Wearin.continually harps on his loyalty to presidential policies, but, curiously enough, his record shows that he has on numerous occasions voted against major Roosevelt policies, including the AAA and the NRA. Wearin has offered no explanation of this record. Many democrats believe that because of present economic conditions adverse to the party in power they will need every vote they can get in November, and that Gillette would be the better vote- getter, particularly because no matter whom the republicans nominate, Gillette would get many republican votes, whereas Wearin would get none. In general Kossuth democrats are believed to be backing Gillette. One Algona democrat, prominent in county democratic politics for a generation, said Tuesday that he expected Gillette to get the major vote in this county. FLOWER SHOW TO BE HELD NEXT WEEK WEDNESDAY Next Wednesday the county Flower club will hold its third annual spring flower show and plant sale in the gymnasium of the Algona high school. The show will be open all day and evening and no admission fee will be charged. Entries, which may be submitted by any flower growers except professionals, will be judged by Prof. R. B. Johnson, landscape architect from Iowa State college, Ames. All entries must be made before 10 a. m. with the secretary, Mrs. Paul Many Entries in Queen Contest Bernice Stock to Give Dance Revue With 75 Children Bermco Stock will present her dance pupils in the second annual dance revue this week Friday evening at 8 o'clock In the high school auditorium.

Wille, Algona, and all exhibits must be in place by 11. The show will feature exhibits of iris, peonies, and tulips in 14 divisions, with various classes in each division. A mescellaneous group wil include flower arange- ments, one of them the best arrangement of a miniature bouquet not to exceed four inches in height. There Will also be miscellaneous blooming perennials, shrubs, or annuals, as well as awards for the best iris spike and best peony in bloom. Prizes to be awarded are blue, red, and yellow ribbons for first second, and third places. Iris bulbs, peony roots, and tulips are to be given as sweepstake prizes. In the miscellaneous group there will be prizes of garden and flower accessories. Members of the club will have on sale numerous perennials and annuals from their own gardens and hot beds. Non-members are urged to exhibit, and they may become members on payment of an entry fee of only 50 cents, the yearly dues. There are no entry fees against members. The word "professional" is defined to mean a person selling plants and flowers for a livelihood. An amateur may occasionally sell surplus fldwers and plants, but may not advertise or prepare a list of flowers and other plants for sale. In the iris division, two spikes, are to be shown; in the peony, two blooms; and in the tulip, three blooms. All flowers must be home grown. f jg INTEREST IN CONTEST HIGH; OPENS MONDAY Second Prize of $50 Will Also Be Awarded. Though the March of Progress queen contest does not start till next Monday voting coupons are already being called for at some of !0 Algona stores participating in this city-wide event, and interest n the contest is greater than in any similar event ever staged in ,his vicinity. Many entries have already been received by the Algona newspapers, and more are being received as each mail comes in. Expressions of favor have been heard hat this is not a lottery proposi- ;ion, but a campaign in which the girl getting the most votes will win. How to Get Votes. Getting votes is easy. During the period beginniiig Monday and ending August 13 Algona cooperating stores will give votes with eacn 25-cent or greater purchase. Thus a 25c purchase brings 25 votes or credits, a $1 purchase 100 credits, and a $5 purchase 500 credits and so on. Each coupon las a space in which to write the name of the girl for which the votes or credits are to be cast, and the girl receiving the greatest number will be the winner. Besides being queen of the celebration, to be held August 17 and 18 the winner will be given an all- expense tour lasting 18 days. From Algona she will, go to Chicago on the "Sioux," and there join a chaperoned party of a dozen winners of similar contests sponsored by the National Editorial association. Extensive Tour for Winner. From Chicago the group, by special car, goes to the Twin Cities, thence westward to British Columbia, San Francisco, Catalina Island, Hollywood, Old Mexico, San Diego, New Orleans, and many other points of interest. The trip will begin the middle of September, the nicest time of the year for a western jaunt. Besides the trip prize another prize of $50 in cash will be given. For the purpose of awarding this prize the territory has been divided into two districts. The city of Algona will comprise one district, and all trade territory outside of Algona will compose the other district. The $50 prize will will be awarded the highest girl in the district which did not furnish the queen. Thus if the queen is chosen from outside Algona, then the $50 prize will go to the girl who was high, vote getter in Algona, and vice versa. Nomination Blanks Free. Nomination, blanks worth 10,000 votes have been printed in each Algona paper, and is repeated in today's Advance. Fill in the name of the girl whom you wish to see win this trip. Girls who have been nominated will receive notification. soon after the start of the contest, and the standing of the various contestants will be puhlished from week to week. The candidates will also receive, without charge, "courtesy" cards which they can send to friends and relatives, asking them to save coupons. An addition to the list given in the page advertisement announcing the queen contest is the firm of Moe & Sjogren. Traffic Violator* Draw Panson Fines Traffic violators were still te- ing caught during the last week, Gilbert Johnson, Floyd, was fined 13 plus $2 yesterday by Justice Danson for failing to obey a stop sign May 22.

A crumpled piece of white paper was found in Mrs. Peter Bormann's garden one day last week. Upon investigation Mrs. Bormann found it to be—a marriage certificate in duplicate, one for the bridegroom, the other for the bride. The certificates were dated May 2, 1937, and they gave the names Delbert E. Schuler and Ruth Woods. The ceremony took place at Sheldon and was performed by J. G. Kessler, a retired minister, with W. W. Woods and Betty Woods as legal witnesses. After reading the certificates Mrs. Bormann handed them to her neighbor, Mrs. B. A. Thorpe, who pondered the case, then gave the paper to her brother, W. C. Dewel. Later it occurred to her that the Rev. and Mrs. F. Earl Burgess, who came from. Sheldon, might know the couple. They do, and they also know the minister. Further inquiry developed a few more facts. Mr. Schuler, it appears, has been canvassing in this territory for the sale of aluminum goods, and the couple lived here for a time. He is said to be at Bancroft this week. The couple left here for Arnolds Park about a month ago. They had previously had rooms at P. J. Waldron's and before that had an apartment at F. L. Thorpe's. Mr. Schuler is now rooming at Wallburg's while working this territory. The Rev. and Mrs. F. Earl Burgess knew the bride when Mr. Burgess had the Methodist pastorate at Sheldon. She was a Congregationalist. The minister who performed the ceremony was supplying at that time for the Presbyterian church, there. How the certificates got into Mrs. Bormann's garden is a mystery to be solved when and if the owners call for the proofs of their marriage vows. The paper was not soiled and looked as if it had been dropped accidentally and carried by the wind to the point where it was found. The certificates are now at the owners. the Advance office, awaiting NEXT TUESDAY IS RALLY DAY FOR 4-H GIRLS Event to Take Place at Burt and is To Last All Day. BROWNIES TO PLAY OPENER HERE SUNDAY Des Moines Team to Come for Two Big Games. The first game of the Algona Brownies wil be played Sunday af- ternon at the ball park south of the swimming pool with the King- burg club, of Des Moines. Two games will be played, one in the afternoon at 2:30, and. the other in the evening, at 8:30, between the same teams. The Algona Brownies, the first time that name has been applied to an Algona team for 35 years or more, will be an all-colored aggregation, and the basis of the ;eam will be the Brooklyn Giants, of last year. Five pitchers are carried, besides an extra catcher. The line-up for Sunday's opener is: Jones of, Warren ss, Lowe, manager, 3b, White If, Young cf, Johnson 1st, Houston c, Fagen 2nd, Mathls p. Other members . of the team are Piguese, McClaney, Lyles and Smith/ pitchers, and Vance, catcher. It is hoped by local ball enthusiasts that the new club will approach the brilliance of the original Algona Brownies who, at the turn of the century, played big league baseball teams and beat them consistently. In those days the Algona Brownies were known throughout the middle-west, and drew crowds which surpassed at times those seeing games between old- and there are a number still living, league leaders. Among the timers in midwest baseball, numerous the "good and old there are 'many, varied stories of days." One of the most persistent concerned a game to be played between the Brownies and a St» Paul league team- A large delegation boarded a special train on the old M. & St. L., at that"time known as the Iowa Central railroad. A poker game was started as the train pulled out. The game continued to St. Paul, where a rainstorm prevented the game. Because of the rain the poker game continued, sandwiches and coffee being sent out for. Came time to leave, and the game went on- The next morning the train pulled In at Algona,, and after It had stopped the lost hind was dealt BANCROFT GAMP TO BE RETAINED J. D. Lowe received word yesterday afternoon that the CCC camp at Bancroft would be continued. The message was from Congressman F. C. Gilchrist, and said: "Restrictions against drainage camps have been removed and they will be operated same as all other camps." Thus as long as work exists' the camp at Bancroft will be retained. POOL WILL BE READY FOR THE SEASON JUNE 8 The swimming pool will be opened for the season next week Friday' morning. The opening has ben slightly delayed because the pool leaked when water was first put in it this spring, and 50,000 gallons of water escaped overnight. New tar has now been put onto expansion joints in the concrete. The pool holds 300,000 gallons, or the equivalent of the capacity of the water tower. Bob Sellstrom and Phillip Bergfield will again be the lifeguards, with Evelyn Graham as matron and cashier, asisted by Martha Palmer. Mrs. Van Allen wil have charge of the stand. .The pool will be open from 10 to 11 mornings and from 2 to 10 p. m. afternoons and evenings.

The state law banning the customary firecrackers and other youthful noise and firemak- ers, became effective last January, md hence -no fireworks of any nature can be had. Celebrations and county fairs were exempted providing the displays were managed by an approved technician, and permits granted by city council or supervisors. Permits have been obtained from both the Algona council and the Kossuth, board for the fair's celebration. BLEACHERS COLLAPSE AT SALE; BOy INJURED Livermore, June 1— At the John and Henry Geischecker closing out Shorthorn cattle sale Saturday bleachers collapsed, and a 10-year old boy, whose home was believed to be at Laurens, was injured. Two of the youth's fingers were crushed by falling planks, and it was feared that one of the fingers would have to be amputated. He was taken to a Fort Dodge hospital before his name could be learned locally. There were 76 thoroughbreds sold in 54 lots at an. average of more than $211 per lot,- with a total sale of $11,183. Because of conflicting dates Govenor Kraschel, who was supposed to do a little unofficial auctioneering, did not come. He was auctioneer for the Geischeckers some 20 years ago, . and had promised then to come to their closing out sale. There were 1000 in attendance with buyers from 19 different states. The new Livermore Library Women's organization served the lunch. - * - Case of Smallpox Here. It turned out that Marjorie Dewel's case, reported last week, was not mumps but smallpox.
