Plans for the junior Legion baseball season and a proposed Legion farewell party for Adjutant Oliver S. Eeiley, who leaves next week for his new post at Warshalltown, occupied most of ;he time at a Hagg post meeting Tuesday -evening at the Legion Hall. Commander Nugent reported he had attended baseball meetings with the sponsors of the Algoua Brownies and that the committee had made arrangements to donate a percentage of its total collection to the Legion, junior team. This will be approximately $200, with which, it is hoped, new uniforms can be purchased, plus new equipment, to help make a good season for the Juniors, who are under managership of County Auditor E. S. (Duke) Kinsey, The commander said on behalf of Hagg post that the Legionnaires of Algona are sorry to lose Mr. Reiley, who has served as adjutant during his two years here. A committee on the farewell party consisting of M. J. Streit, chairman, Jos. Bloom, and Alf Kresensky was named. Men who served on various Decoration day committees were given a vote' of thanks. The commander emphasized that special thanks were due to four motor firms in Algona—the Kent Motor Co., the Kossuth Motor Co., the Maxwell Motor Co.—and the Hoenk Motor Do. for the use of special cars in the parade. As Is customary,' the Legion will not meet in July and August, The commander appointed the Rev. F. Earl Burgess, chaplain of the post,' to serve as acting adjutant till election of officers in September.

Shirley. A total of 250 eighth graders !n Kossuth county wrote in February, and 209 have received diplomas. Of the 41 pupils who did not receive diplomas were not "down" in more than three subjects, they may be tutored this summer and will have a chance to enter high school next fall if they pass next tests. It is supposed, however, that some of the 41 moved out of the county, and so have completed the tests elsewhere. List of Honor Pupils.

Bode, president, won grand sweepstakes of a choice peony root for winning the most points, 63, in the entire show of the Kossuth Flower club Wednesday in the Algona high school gymnasium. Prof. R. B. Johnson, of the department of landscape architecture at the state, college, at Ames, judged the 219 entries of iris, peonies, and flower arrangements. 'W. A. Poster's peony bloom was. judged the best entry in that class, as was also his iris spike in the iris group. Iris and peony roots, which were awarded as sweepstakes prizes in the several divisions were given by the Eagle Gardens, of Eagle Grove, The Algona Greenhouses displayed plants for sale, and the Eagle Gardens took orders for peony and iris roots on their displays of blooms. The flower club sale of home-grown annuals and perennials was in charge of Ella Thompson.

Richard Brink, Lu Verne, was discovered as the real winner of the 1938 "brain derby" at Iowa City the first of the week, although :irst honors were given to Lois Wayhew, Red Oak girl who won .he honors for two years. Superintendent Evans, of Lu Verne, sent a protest to the Iowa City officials over the naming of ble header 22-13. Sunday night's game will renew the feud between Algona and Forest City ball teams, which at several times in recent years has almost threatened to send fans into scraps to defend the merits of the two teams. The Brownies believe they can take the measure of the Collegians, and plan to start with Sunday night's game. The Brownies got off to a flying start Sunday afternoon by de- feating the Kingsbury team in the opening game of the season 4-3. In the night game eveything happened to -both teams, only the things happened to the Brownies most often. Most of the difficulty resulted from efforts to swat tri- motor mosquitoes and field a ball at the same time, a difficult feat in anybody's league. Too-, the ball became slippery from mowing down mosquitoes, in its flight through the air, and the impacts slowed the spheriod down so it was difficult to judge. And is was disconcerting to each team to have a large-size mosquito lurking 'nearby ready to pounce the minute the player's attention was distracted by a ball. Spectators were not much bothered by the insects, for a braaze in the stands kept them away, and they enjoyed the big game hunt mixed with baseball. the Red Oak girl in first place. The Brink youth had one first place, a second, and a tie for eighth place. The Red Oak girl tied for first, won a second, and had a ninth place. This placement, Lu Verne contends, under any system of figuring, gives-Brink the championship. Brink had a higher placement in third position, which together with the fact that he won an undisputed first whereas the Red Oak girl had to share a first place, should have entitled him to the unofficial title. The state contest officials do not list championships, but merely indicate the positions the students take in the respective examinations. The "championships" are unofficially awarded by news stories, and the Des Moines Register Tuesday announced Lois as the three-times champion. Supt. Evans was keenly disappointed, as were Lu Verne followers, at the way the Lu Verne youth was ignored in the placement of honors, and Mr. Evans is q.uo\ed as saying: "It isn't very often a town the size of Lu Verne gets a chance] like this for recognition, and tben to lose it through no fault of our own is tough." » Seven Couples Get Licenses to Marry Seven licenses to wed have been issued in the first eight days of June: Benjamin Josephson, Anna M. Johnson, both of Boone; Leonard Dunn, Algona, Bernice Williams, Garner; Lawrence W. Meyer, Alice Dau, both of Whittemore; Delbert A. Carlson, Beatrice Stroeble, both of Delevan, Minn.; Wilson W. Brack, Ledyard, Mary Jane Lewis, Lakota. 4 • , To Erect Farm Buildings. Henry Johannsen Jr. and his carpenters have contracted to erect a new set of buildings, in part, oh the O. E. Butterfield farm, north of Algona. They will remodel the house and build a new barn and outbuildings. They are now building a new barn on the J. C. Mawdsley farm. Irvington's Eighth Graders are Tops in County 'Exams' Irvlngton, June 8-pMyrtle Jordan distributed diplomas; to her 8th grade graduates here Tuesday. The class consisted .of seven pupils, six of whom passed with an average more than 90 per cent, while the seventh was in the high 80's. This class holds the record for the highest average in the county, and it was also the largest class in the county this year. One pupil, Phyllis Black, now lives near Burt. The others are Phyllis Maxwell, Lorraine Thomas, Adella Leui- kce, Dorothy leigh, Kenneth Asa, and Shirley Boney. 89 Girls Enter Queen Contest ALL PARTS OF KOSSUTH ARE REPRESENTED Voting Coupons Now Being Issued by Algona Stores.
