NO HALLOWEEN DEPREDATIONS ARE REPORTED Business in the Justice Courts Also Slow During Week. TAG DAY TO BE HELD TOMORROW FOR HOT LUNCH FUND Friday will be Tag Day in Algona with the high school G. A. A. girls and the elementary grades parents-teachers association sponsoring a drive to raise a fund to provide milk and hot lunches for underprivllege children attending all Algona schools. Distinctive tags will be sold by the girls In the Algona business and residential sections at ten cents, or more if the buyer wishes. .The drive has the approval of the Aigona city authorities. ' The fund raised will be administered by Miss Antoinette Bonnstetter, school nurse, and used to pay for lunches in both the public and parochial schools. Miss Bonnstetter gave the reasons for the drive in an appeal to the public for its cooperation. "The funds derived from the sale of tags will go to furnish hot lunches and milk for children who are in need of better nutrition. The hot lunches served in the Bryant building are not self-supporting because of the very few children who can pay for them, but those who have observed the work done in this department are convinced that it is a worthy project—one that f brings valuable results in preventing physical fatigue and lowered resistance in the cases of many children. We all realize that children require certain foods to develop strong straight bones, sound teeth and a happy mental outlook. And proper diet is one of the most important keys to good health. "Give us your support this Friday. It wilt give the child who needs it, orange juice or milk in kindergarten, milk and crackers in all schools of Algona not equipped to serve hot lunches and help us to continue the hot lunches at Bryant with special arrangements made for other children In other buildings who need a hot lunch. Your help will be greatly appreciated." SCHOOL NURSE PUBLISHES HER ANNUALREPORT Many Local Children Have Not Yet Been Vaccinated.

The ballots were printed a week ago by the combined Advance and Bancroft forces. The ballot appears on page four of today's Advance. In the sample ballot printed today the two Independent columns, which appear on the extreme right of the regular ballot, are omitted, and ..only.., the regular tickets appear. Two Independent tickets were necessitated by the filing of John F. Wessels, of Des Moines, as independent candidate for sec- re.tary of state to fill the vacancy from next Tuesday's election to January 1. . Short Term Tacancy. Appointment of Secretary O'Brian following the death of Mrs. Alex Miller, who was elected two years ago, left a vacancy in the office from the time of the election till the next term begins. Both republicans and democrats nominated no one for this vacancy, honce Wessels, simply by filing for the office as independent, is almost certain of election unless another candidate's name is written in by voters to a greater extent than the number voted for him. •The ballot has seven tickets, of which two are the Independent columns noted. The democratic column appears first on the left, followed by the republican, farmer- , In an interview with Supt. Wni. Shirley Wednesday, some interesting facts were learned about twins in Koossuth rural schools. There are three sets among 15 pupils in No. 7, Ledyard township. Louis and Lucy Diaz, Mexican twins, are brother and sister of two girls who were drowned in a gravel pit this summer. The other two sets are John and Joseph Berschman, and Wanda and Wayne Heetland. Marjorie Johnson, of La- kot'a, is the teacher. Dist. No. 2, Springfield township, was to have had four sets this year, but it turned but that one set was not old enough, and another was sent to town, school. But these left two sets out of 13 pupils. They are Donald and Donnis Berhow and Marvin and Morris Garvick, all boys, and their. teacher is Cel- esta Trenary, whose home is near Bancroft. A rural school "item" which might have "made" "Believe It or Not" is that back in 1933 the teacher in No. 7, Greenwood township, "taught school" three months with not a single pupil. Before school opened the teacher-to-be signed a three- months' contract to teach six pupils. Then, just before the term was to begin, a town school nearby offered the six children "free" tuition and a friendly neighbor offered free transportation. «, The parents of the six children took up the offers, so on the opening morning the No. 7 teacher was left "high and dry" with nary a pupil. Nevertheless she went to the schoolhouse every day, kept it heated, .kept it neat, and drew her full i tfiree months' salary, • i EAGLETS AND BULLDOGS TO BATTLE HERE SHOOTS DEER ON CANADIAN HUNTING TRIP Joe Lowe in Another of His Far-Flung Expeditions.

The first of these teas is being held today (Thursday) at the home of Mrs. C. Schnucker, for Buffalo and German townships. The Prairie, Irvington, Cresco, Riverdale, Sherman, and Lu Verne women will meet tomorrow with Mrs. R. R; Masterson, who lives in Prairie township. Schedule of Dates.

The progressive ticket, established by LaFollette, of Wisconsin, this spring, takea second place to the farmer-labor ticket because it is a new party. There were some 25,000 farmer-labor votes cast in the 1936 election. Vacancies on Ballot. None of the columns are com- Ey Eleanor Fraser. J. D.

The week of November 7-12 has been set aside as American Education week. Algona has just completed a dental survey of all school children, made possible through cooperation on the part of local dentists who made examinations at the invitation of school officials. The school officials had been under the impression for some time that there was a definite need for such service. 'Following is a report on the children examined, beginning with the kindergarten and extending to the eighth grade, in the public schools and the Trinity Lutheran parochial school, the academy examination being not yet completed: Pupils examined, 589. Pupils found with cavities, 81%. Pupils needing extractions, 25%. Pupils needing teeth cleaned, Algona Crippled But Plans Stiff Fight for Visitors. The Bulldogs will play Eagle rove team on the local field tonight at 8 o'clock. Eagle Grove is one of the strongest teams in the North Central Conference this year. It has won 'our games and lost only one, while the Bulldogs record is one. win, three losses. The locals were defeated Friday evening at Clarion 20-7. Four of the regular players went out of the game on injuries. Roger Michel suffered a dislocated bone in one foot soon after he had caught a punt on the 35-yd line and had run for . the touchdown. Captain Bud Anderson will be out of the game the rest of the season, result of a collar bone injury. William Devine went out with a pulled tendon, and LeRoy Lee turned an ankle in the Clarion is been on the casualty list .for several weeks is the fifth first-string man now on the bench. Coach Findley reported yesterday that Morck will take Anderson's place at center. Kohlhaas will replace Devine at guard, and Hicks will fill Michel's place in the backfield unless Devine and. Michel are able-to play by game time H. S. Record Better. Is it any wonder that we found 81% of the pupils with cavities, when approximately three-fourths of the pupils admitted that they had never been to a dentist or did not know a dentist's name? We did not examine high school pupils, but a survey revealed that of 420 pupils enrolled 285 had visited a dentist within the last year. Tests for Hearing. Another phase of health that we were much interested in was hearing deficiencies among pupils and possible causes. In March we had audiometer tests made on all Algona school children by W,arren H. Gardner, Ph. D., examiner for the Hard of Hearing Psychological clinic, Iowa City. ..-••-. . — •• Eleven hundred children were examined at that time, and 15 pupils were found with hearing deficiencies at St. Cecelia's academy. Sixty-one were found in the public school system. The Trinity Lutheran children were brought to the Bryant building for examination. The history of 54 revealed repeated colds and discharging ears.

Prairie chickens, too, were much in evidence. Notwithstanding the fact that Mr. Lowe and Jack Koppen, Buffalo Center, drove north through a snowstorm a week ago Sunday, they saw no snow beyond Duluth, but ran into such warm weather that they hunted in shirtsleeves. Leaving their car at a camp north of International Falls, the hunters traveled with guides 14 miles by wagon and cut their way through forest. Lowe Gets a Deer. A background of snow Is necessary for good hunting, in order to follow tracks and sight game against natural surroundings with which otherwise the protective coloring of the animals is merged. Nevertheless Mr. Lowe shot a deer (the season is closed on, moose this year), Mr. Lowe and Mrs. Koppen got some lake trout in Lake Dryber- ry, southeast of Kenora, which is straight east of Winnipeg. There was an abundance of wild ducks on lakes and bayous. Muskeg Still Burning. Driving through the area of recent northern Minnesota forest fire in which some 20 parsons perished, the hunters fouud much of the muskeg still burning.

'Dick' Spends the Week-End at Home Senator Dickinson was at home ver the week-end. Before a few riends gathered Saturday night in he office of R. J.

G. Clapsaddle's office -Sunday and went through his desk, but apparently took nothing. It is thought the parties were after dope. Dr. Clapeaddle was in the country at the time. A woman giving an unknown name called his house, asking when he would be in. Mrs. Clapsaddle called the doctor, who called .his office, and talked to the woman, telling her he would not be in for an hour or more. When he returned no one was there, but he found that some one had climbed over the transom into the inner office. All drugs were locked in the vault, so they were unable to get them if that was what they rears ago. •*- We had definite cases that we were much concerned about, but their hearing has been definitely improved. Sixteen children have • been cared for in summer clinics sponsored by the Legion Auxiliary, the Algona charities, and the county. Parents were informed concerning the hearing deficiencies of their children and as far as possible of causes. Teachers were Informed that all children with a 12% hearing deficiency ought to be given special attention on assignments, dictation, etc., and to be seated near, the front end of rooms. Also an Orthopedic Clinic. In September, 1937, we cooperated with an orthopedic mobile clinic at the Kossuth hospital, and 18 of our orthopedic cases were brought in for observation and advice. Dr. A. Stoindler, director of the orthopedic division from the state university hospitals, Was with us. .
