[gham O.K/s Afternoon Talk IP, WEAVER .SO TO TALK IN IHE FOURTH Now Complete Celebration at ! Fairgrounds. fcey Ingham, now nearlng Jth anniversary of his birth Sesuth county, yesterday ad- 3ecretary E, L. Vincent that luld be pleased to make his talk at the Fourth of July celebration at the fairgrounds in the afternoon, and it has been tentatively set for 2:30 o'clock at the amphitheater. M. P. Weaver, also born in Kossuth county of pioneer parents, will make a companion talk. In his letter to Secretary Vincent, Mr. Ingham said: Were Boys Together. "I was glad to get your note and know that you had secured 'Mart' Weaver, who is one of the few remaining old-timers 1 knew as a boy. "Tell 'Mart' to make his talk wholly independent of anything he thinks I am going to say, for my talk will be largely personal and reminiscent. "You know, I am going to celebrate my 80th birthday before long and when a man gets along to that period, if he talks at all, he naturally talks about things as ho remembers them. "Tell 'Mart' to make the real talk of the occasion for, as I have said before, my talk will be Incidental. "The afternoon program would exactly suit me very much better than having it in the evening." Not an "Incidental." As Mr. Vincent remar|ked, though Mr. Ingham might term' his talk "incidental" it will be,! as it always has been, one of the' high spots in any program upon! which he appears. Mr. Ingham is'! one of the most interesting speak-i ers of the state, and when in Kos-1 suth county talking about "old times" he is at his best. Mr. Weaver's talk will also deal largely with the history of the| | county as he has seen it during i ; his entire life. Mr. Weaver has one! advantage over Mr, Ingham, andj that is continuous residence here during the last 30 years while Mr. Ingham has been editor of the Register. Attend Pageant School. Secretary Vincent and Mrs. E. W. Hansen, who is directing the centennial pageant to be given as a part of the evening show of the celebration, spent yesterday in Eagle Grove at a "shhool" conduct ed by the state committee. ' The pageant groups are now being given polishing training on parts to be taken, and the entire production is being whipped into shape so that action will be fast. The evening program will also include all of the six big feature acts, plus a display of fireworks more stupendous than any ever before given in one evening in the county. This super-show was arranged because of tho state law banning sale and use of fireworks for private celebrations.

Cowan returned Saturday from the Twin ities, where Mr. Cowan attended a two-day convention of distributors and agents of the Standard Lime & Stone Co., manufacturers of Capital Rock Wool insulation, lor which Mr. Cowan is distributor in this part of the state. The company has produced the well-known Portland cement and commercial rock wool for a period of over 50 years. In 1929 the firstoutpust of blowing rock wool was put on the market and during that year $100,000 worth was sold. In 1937 the rock wool department had jumped to a $45,000,000 business, and is expected to go higher this year. Industry Is Booming. ed the insulation business because air-conditioning, to be effective and economical, must have an insulated building. Otherwise heat comes in and 'overworks equipment or requires larger equipment which is too 'expensive to operate. All Capitol rock wool must be installed by factory trained men, and the company retains control of the product till it has been accepted, not only by the . person who purchases insulation, but by inspectors spent out by the company to see that it is correctly installed. All jobs are open to this inspection. Rock wool is manufactured from pure virgin limestone, which Is heated to melting point of 2800 degrees. Live steam then blows the molten rock as it comes from the klin into streamers filled with air pockets. This product is used for batts. Rock wool for blowing, however, must be processed again, by being run through a dryer, and shredder and screens to remove particles not entirely "woolified." Capitol Rock Wool has one additional patented process whereby it is made 14 percent more pure than other brands. 88 Years Work left, Insulation and air-conditioning are the two coming businesses, it was explained at the meeting, and the only two to maintain steady BROWNIES TO PLAY ROCK VALLEY AND GHAS, CITY LIONS The Brownies, smarting under Sunday's defeat, will meet the Rock Valley team here in tonight's game, and will play the Charles City Lions in Sunday's ame under the lights at the ball park here. Both games are scheduled for 8:30 o'clock. The Brownies also have a score to settle with Rock Rapids, for each team has won a game of the •wo so far played, and the Brown- :es expected to take tonight's jatne. Charles City has one of the best rated ball clubs in the northern part of the state, and the team is expected to put up the stiffest competition the. Brownies lave so far met. Manager Lowe of the Brownies, however, is confident the Brownes can take the Lions into camp. The weather has been too cold for ood baseball, but the heat wave which struck Iowa the middle of the week promises to make conditions ideal for the week's games. Yesterday the Brownies played the Bancroft Lions at Bancroft in an afternoon game. New Paths are Put in the Call Park; New Toilets Built PWA workmen are making headway on work at the Ambrose A. Call state park. In early spring new benches were made of logs split in half, with a cross-lo? at each end to keep them from rolling. New signs in the park were made of natural wood , and they not only give rules and direction within the park but lead tourists there from main highways. In the last few weeks tho men have laid out paths through the timber from the river bridge to the shelter house, thencs south around the wast, south, and cast edges of the park to the custodian's home. The paths are as wide as sidewalk, and all told are about a mile in length. Gravel will be laid as soon as possible. New outdoor toilets are being built, and many other improvements are being made. The work will continue mosi of the summer. + Fifth Case of Smallpox. Richard, son of Mr. and Mrs. Merle Webster, was quarantined Monday for smallpox. This is the fifth case in Algoua in the last few weeks. Richard will be in the third grade of the local schools next year. Fenton Helen A.

Eleven girls' 4-H clubs in the county were represented at an annual statewide convention at Ames last week. The girls went down Wednesday, returning Saturday. All of them took part in a big festival Friday night on the college campus. Patricia Matern, Algona, county president, and Shirley Marlow, of Burt, retiring president, were among ushers Wednesday. Mrs. Ray Miller, county girls' chairman, was honored Friday, for long-time leadership service. Elizabeth Ann Inman, Bancroft, Kossuth's entrant in a Register and Tribune contest, won an award. Dorothy Ostrander, Buffalo Center, was elected state president. Kossuth delegates were Norma Heetland, Ledyard; .Mary Frances Inman, Bancroft; Ella Harr, Cresco; Dorothy Downing, Sherman; Virginia Trenary, Portland; Lucille Rath, Swea; Dorothy Budlong, Buffalo; Dawn Vaudt, .Whittemore; Ruth Dreyer, Fenton; Betty Marlow, Burt; and Mildred Elmore, Union. Club leaders who attended were Mrs. C. G. Pefferman, Mrs. Ralph Brown, Mrs. John Bleich, Mrs. Will Weisbrod, and Myrtle Hanna of the Bancroft, Cresco, Buffalo, Fenton, and Burt clubs respectively. Mr. and Mrs. Harold Miller, Titonka, took a load of Buffalo Boosters to Ames Friday evening to attend the festival. Helen Mae Hanna, Burt, and County Agent and Mrs. A. L. Brown attended the event, as did also the H. D. A., Lucile Pepoon. FIVE SWARMS BEES INFEST OLD BUILDING 1 Swarm Cemented Up in Livermore Remodeling. 800 in Kossuth Are Eligible to Receive Unemployment Checks growth through the depression. It Is estimated it will take 38 years to catch up with the demand for Insulation in old homes which cost up to $4500. New construction Is additional. Rock wool insulation is particularly saleable because II brings definite 'direct benefits, requires no upkeep or repair, and is ever-lasting. An interesting experiment was performed. A miniature house had one-half insulated and the other half uninsulated- The house was set afire with gasoline. The unin- sulated half burned rapidly, but the fire died la the insulated part after burning only superstructure outalde the insulated area. Start of payment of unemployment benefits under the social security law will begin the middle of July, and applications can be taken starting July 1. This department in the local reemployment office is supervised by E. C. Finnell, and the present offices over the Iowa State bank will be moved to new quarters in the restored former Christensen building July 1. Applications cannot be taken till July 1. Mr. Finnell estimated Tuesday that there are 800 employees of 21 concerns eligible to receive the benefits if they lose their jobs. Benefit payments do not start till the third week after the unemployment occurs, thus if application is made July 1, the earliest payment could be made would be July 14. Thus the em- ploye must be out of a job at least two weeks. It is important, therefore, that a claim be made the day the job is lost. The law also makes provisions for those who have lost a full time job, but who are partially employed. In this case the applicant must wait four weeks from the time he makes application -Before benefits start. The benefit is 50 percent of the full time wage earned by tho employee, with a maximum of $15 and a minimum of $5. It can be obtained only for a total period of 15 weeks in any one year. One factor that is being stressed is that this compensation is in no way health insurance, and that no worker will be paid benefits be-! cause of loss of time from his job because of illness. The benefit is only for those who are unemployed. Another feature is that the worker must accept a job if one is found for him by the reemployment office which is within his ability to handle. This will prevent those who are easily employable from securing compensation and making no effort to get a job. By Jo Swanson. Livermore, June 21 — We've heard of bats in the belfry, but "bees in the attic," five swarms of them-fgoodness, that's too many bees! At least that is what Lester Smith thought when he razed part of the St. James hotel, letting the east side stand for conversion into a modern cafe, with living apartment above. It had been known for some time that a swarm of bees insisted on keeping house in the cornice. Efforts to induce them to take up their abode elsewhere had met with stout resistance. But when Mr. Smith put a crew of wreckers to work he discovered not one swarm only, but four more. Four of the swarms' were mastered, but the fifth was uncontrollable, and as it was so located in the part that would stand, the men were instructed to cement them in. So they are now enclosed, cut off within a cement wall where they will stay' for many years to come. -*Attacks a Stranger With a Salt Shaker West Bend, June 21—A stranger was injured Saturday while in the Hartnett Cafe, when Byron Groves hit him behind the ear with a salt shaker. Witnesses said the man, a salesman, came in and sat down at a table. Groves picked up the shaker and threw it, hitting the stranger. Groves then ran out the front door and into Nellie's pool hall next door, thence on out the back door, and home. He was arrested on complaint of this man and was bound over to the grand jury. His mother, Mrs. C. E. Groves, furnished bond. ' The attack was unprovoked. Groves is said to have been drunk. Railroad Agent is Sent to a New Job Irvjngton, June 21—A farewell party for the E. H. Thomas family was given at the church Friday evening. After a short program Mr. and Mrs. Thomas were presented with a silver pastry server. Mr. Thomas, who has boon depot agent here for several years, goes to Hanlontown to take up similar duties there <*a June 25.

WOMAN HITCHHIKER GETS LOST ON THE WAY TO IRVINGTON Irvington, June 21 — A woman from a neighboring town started to hitchhike to Irvington to visit friends one afternoon last week. After walking for miles without a lift she realized that she was lost, so, stopping at a farmhouse, she telephoned her Irvington friends to come and get her, telling them she was near Sexton. The Irvington people spent the greater part of the afternoon trying to locate her, but finally had to come home, after neither seeing her nor hearing of her again. That evening they drove to the woman's home, and found her In bed with blistered feet and a good sunburn. She had really been lost, and had apparently traveled in circles, but was much nearer her own home than Sexton when the phone call was made.

Vincent Isaacson, Harry Hull Fr., Ted Vera, and Bob Dewel got lome Monday afternoon from a 'week out" at the Isacson cottage, Hear Lake. The boys had an exciting experience one day when a huge wave filled their, outboard motor boat with water while they were far from shore. The boat began to sink, so they had to get out and swim ashore (about three fourths of a mile), clinging to the boat and pushing it forward.. Most of the things in the boat were lost, but one was salvaged— a bottle of hair oil. The boys had been using it for sunburn, thinking it to be olive oil! Boy s on camping trips usually tiave a variety of bad luck — car troubles, shortage of money, etc These lads had theirs—four flats, motor boat repairs, and few pennies left by Sunday. They solved an eating problem by making pan cakes for breakfast, redeeming lunch, and "out" for din- "coke" bottles for wangling Invitations ner, 4 Eugene Colwell Wins Conservation "First" Eugene Colwell was awarded first prize from the Algona unit of the county Conservation League at a meeting lest evening.

Henry Walter Ewoldt, 22, son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ewoldt, was drowned in Clear Lake yesterday morning when he went for a swim ollowing the conclusion of a dance played by the orchestra of which he is a member. With him was the orchestra piano player, Kathryn Burgess, of Des Moines. His brother Elmer, also a member of the orchestra, had remained at the Ritz hotel, where the band was playing, to set .le the evening accounting, and the others had gone for a cooling iwim. Stepped Into Hole. The girl was first into the water and started swimming toward a Joat anchored a short way out This was on the south side of the sland at Bayside. Ewoldt was fol- owing, wading out to get depth n which to swim. He stepped off nto a hole in the lake bed. It is believed that the sudden cold water caused a cramp, and he sank without being able to call for help. When the girl reached the boat she looked back for him, and when le couldn't be seen called for help. ?at Chase and Frank Vernon, em- Moyes at the Ritz hotel, found the body after a half hour of diving and using grapling hooks, and brought it to shore.

The Ewoldt brothers had gone o Clear Lake only Monday to begin a full summer season of play- ng at dances at the Ritz hotel dance hall at Bayside, which is an amusement resort across the lake vest of the town of Clear Lake. " Because of the suddenness of the mwitnessed drowning it will not be definitely known whether the fouth suffered a heart attack from he cold water titter the exertion of playing all 'evening in a hot dance hall, or whether he suffered a cramp. He was the drummer for he band, which is owned by his brother. The Ewoldts came to Algona some three or four years ago, and Mr. Ewoldt has been operating the < & H oil station south of the Algona hotel. Henry was born at Sarlan, and moved with the fam- ly to the Burt neighborhood when he was two years old. He is survived by his parents, his brother Elmer, 25, and a grandmother, Mrs. Wiese, of Burt.
