That the Algona Federal Savings & Loan association has become a big success under management of C. R. L'aBarre, secretary-treasurer, is by w'ay of becoming an old story.

WESLEYAN GETS 1ST '39 PERMIT TO WED Eldon LuVerne Shaw, of Wesley, and Bernice Mae Jensen, Algona, were the first couple to get a license to wed in 1939. The license was issued Tuesday by Mrs. Katherine McEvoy, district court clerk, and the Jicense number was 7183. There were 259 licenses In 1938, which was a small increase over 1937, when 247 were issued, In 1936 the number was 235. Licenses to Minnesotans are included in these figures. In the last ten days of December licenses were issued to: OrvlUe B, Kollasch, Wesley, Elizabeth McMurray, Algona; Milton W. Weber, Harriet Osmundson, both of Blue Eartli; Lyle Raney, Ellen D.

A variety of weather has been experienced in this vicinity since the last issue of the Advance two weeks ago. The fair dry'weather of early December, in fact the entire fall, continued till just before Christmas. Six inches of snow fell December 22, in time for a "white Christmas," and 3% inches more fell on the 24th. The day after Christmas was remindful of the winter of 1935-36 Four and a half more inches snow fell, and a strong, high wine turned it into a raging blizzard Autolsts could see .scarcely more than a block ahead, trains were late, and the bus from Fort Dodge did not come up that night. Mercury in Jfosc-D|ve. The first below zero temperatures of the winter were recorded for four straight days, the lowest last Thursday, or on December 29, when the mercury touched eight degrees, below. New Year's eve brought another •story, and Iowa has experienced the mildest weather for the first four days in January within memory of the present generation. Thawing temperatures have been recorded every day, A typical April shower, with lightning and a little thunder, was yesterday morning's weather feature, and a light drizzle continued at intervals all day, causing a goodly share of the snow to disappear. Some concern was felt last evening, when cooler temperatures caused the streets to be slippery. Two Weeks' Becord.

By Eleanor Eraser. Art Priebe, Lone Rock, was 1 elected president of the County Conservation League at a called meeting at the Community hall, Lu Verne, Tuesday evening. The meeting was attended by some 100 members. Leon Merritt, Algona, was elected vice-president; J. D. Lowe, Algona, re-elected secretary-treasurer. The nominating committee, ap- lointed by retiring president M. P. Weaver, Algona, consisted of chairmen of the various units: Algona, Ray McCorkle; Burt, Hugh McDonald; Lone Rock, Alton Pettit; Lu Verne, C. B. Huff; Wesley, Vee Mullin; WMttemore, Otto Hahn. President Thanked. A rising.vote of thanks was extended to Mr. Weaver for his services to the league. \ Business included secretary's and treasurer's reports, read by Fred Timm in the absence of the secretary-treasurer; discussion of the finances of the league; observance of wild-life week; and suggestions for the 1939 Field day. County dues were fixed at 25c a memlber a year, as last year, and Mr. Weaver urged that they be remitted promptly, s o that the strong central organization already built up may be maintained. The financial statement for the year showed that though the receipts from the annual field day September 18 were less than anticipated, due to inclement weather, tfie amount of ammunition and equipment, as listed in an inventory, will make expenses for the 1939 Field day materially lower. Among, the items -Inventoried- 'are 1200 feet of film recording Field day and other conservation activities. Earlier Field Day. It was urged that an earlier date for the annual field day be selecj- ed, to avoid the possibility of unfavorable weather. It was announced that the officers are looking for a permanent location for the celebration, where traffic can be adequately handled and equipment need not be reassembled every year. A committee will be appointed to make plans. . Attention was called to Wild Hfe Restoration Week, which will be observed nationally March 1925. As was done last year, wild life stamps will be sold. Members were cautioned to make remittance to the treasurer of the county league, to insure payment of a commission due the county organization. A gmall percentage goes into the state federation's fund, and the major portion to maintenance of the national organization. To Observe Week. . It is expected that local units will observe wild life week again this year. Last year the Burt unit sponsored a. WHO barn dance frolic, and Algona had bird specimens in stores. The League decided to conduct a spring hunt for predatory animals and birds, after the same plan as was followed last year. Each unit will sponsor a hunt, giving prizes to individual members for the greatest number of points attained, and the county league Many Needy Families Aided by Gifts During the Holiday Season Many needy families in Algona were made happy this yuletide season as the result of donations from Algona churches, the Legion Auxiliary, the Woman's Relief Corps, and various business organizations. Antoinette Bonnstetter, local school nurse, says, however, that the donations this year were not as great as usual, and that a few families had to be disappointed because there were not enough baskets to go around. But here are some examples of the good deeds done this year: One public spirited man in Algona completely clothed an Algona junior-high boy, and a kind woman gave a basket of food, etc., to a family of nine. The Relief Corps sent money to dress a little kindergarten girl, also to buy a Christmas basket for a family of eight. This family is not on government relief. The Wa-Tan-Ye club gave two baskets, and the Beta Sigma Phi club one basket, to needy families. One man sent $5 to Miss Bonnstetter with the instruction, "Use this to make some little children happy." Miss Bonnstetter thought of two boys, one in kindergarten, one in the first grade. Both of them were ill-shod. She asked: "Boys, M I were to give you something to make you happy, what would it be? (She expected the answer to be "toys"). Instead, they both piped up with, "We want boots!" So, it was boots that they got, and there was not a happier pair of boys in town. Upon hearing this story ,th e giver of the boots made arrangements to give the boys hot lunches at school for six weeks also. Who said there weren't any good Samaritans in this town?

Fred Porter as acting state comptroller to succeed C. B. Murtagh. Mr. Porter has been assistant to Mr. Murtagh since creation of the comptrollership. in 1933, and Mr. Murtagh recommended his appointment. From a source other than Mr. Murtagh it has been reported that he was himself offered the place, but, being desirous of de- devoting all bis time henceforth to the Security State bank here, declined. Mr. Porter received an 'acting' appointment pending action by the legislature on continuance pf the office. He has served in the statehouse some 22 or more years and is a republican. Honor for Judge DeLand. Officials and lawyers in Buena Vista cpunty recently gave a dinner in honor of Judge James DeLand, whp has retired after some 20 years on the bench in this dis-, trict. The chair 4n which he presided as judge in the Buenp Vista scoring highest. Acting on the suggestion of the Algona unit president, Ray McCor- gle, the league voted to Instruct the county secretary, J. D. Lowe, to suggest to the state senator and the representative that the bounty on gophers and starlings be reversed. The 5c bounty on gophers makes it impractical to trap them except with the Jncent- ive of prizes in a predatory hunt, and the lOc bounty on starlings is considered unnecessarily high, especially in view of the fact that it is so much easier to hunt starlings, and as a result, in many counties, funds for payment of the bounty are early exhausted.

Spencer J. Cox, of Lakota, was fined $300 Friday on a charge of driving while intoxicated after 'he hod pleaded guilty before Judge F. C. Davidson. Cox ran into a gasoline pump at the Harold Godfredson station at Lakota the day before Christmas, and if he pays the repair costs on the pump damage he will be given credit on his fine, which he is laying out in jail. He is also to receive a $25 credit for the week he spent in jail waiting for sentence. He is serving at a rate of $3.33 per day. As an additional method of reducing the time he will have to spend in jail Judge Davidson is to allow credit for any work Cox does at the request of Sheriff Loss. Jakob Marty, of West Bend, was given a four-month jail sentence Saturday by Judge Davidson after a plea of guilty to a charge of bootlegging. Of that period two months are to be suspended on good behavior. New Judges Sworn In. •Sunday marked the close of the terms of Judge George A. Heald, of Spencer, and Judge James DeLand, of Storm Lake, and the beginning of four-year terms for Judge G. W. Stillman, of Algona, and Judge Fred C. Hudson, of Poeahontas. Judge Stillman will have Matthew C. Grier, of Emmet-burg, as his court reporter. Mr. Grier had recently been court reporter for Judge Heald, and has served a long list of judges for a period running more than 40 years. Judge Hudson is having Harvey Kittleman, of Storm Lake, as his reporter. Mr. Kittleman was formerly reporter for Judge DeLand. Stillman at Humboldt. Judge Stillman is taking the terms of court assigned to Judge DeLand for this year and Monday opened his first term of court in Humboldt county.
