There has been practically no opposition voiced to the proposal, according to the reports from the various teams which made the petition canvass. Project Is Commended. Various favorable comments have been heard. Many like the proposal because it does- not call for issuance of bonds till after assurances have heen received that the port will be used by commer- cal airlines, and that the port plans must be approved and accepted by the CAA first. Others feel that Algona will •have to have an airport in the near future, and that this will be the most favorable time to buy land and make the initial start. Others are Interested because of personal reasons such as a desire to learn to fly, or to learn airplane motor repairing as a- vocation. Many visualize a growing community and consequent increase in the value of property which would more than offset any possible taxation. Young Women Interested. Several of the younger unmarried women in town have signed with gusto, asserting they are looking forward to the increase in the available male population as i represented by pilots, mechanics and other personnel! Especially pleasing to the com-; mittee has been the expression by nearly all voluntarily that the project was being handled in the correct manner, without hysteria, and with a view of getting assurance of income before making any expenditure. This will mean that the tax can be dispensed with after the first few years, and a possibility that the income will not only pay for bonds but will also be large enough to give the city a profit. Manufacturer Inquires. Evidences of interest in the proposed port have been coming in to Major Saul, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, from many sources, including the air lines, the postal service, manufacturers of planes, operators of training schools, and even the army air service. One manufacturer of small private planes wants a mid-west assembly plant. The planes are now assembled in the East, and have to be flown west to customers at con- iderable expense. With an assembly plant in the mid-west this could be eliminated and greater fiales result. A check on the airmail service out of Algona had not yet been completed Monday< as FATHER UNDER QUARANTINE AS CHILD IS BORN Titonka, Feb. 5—A daughter was born Wednesday at the Kossuth hospital to the Larmond Intermills. Mother and daughter are reported fine and also Mr. Intermill, although he is now under smallpox quarantine. It is hoped he will be released by the time mother and babe return. CHIEF ELBERT ON HUNT FOR FIRE HAZARDS Owners to Be Warned Against Menacing Conditions. from surrounding towns have not all come in. However it is antici- patd that the figures will show 700 to 800 airmail letters out of here,last week. Of particular interest was the check last week of letters sent to points which would benefit from airmail service out of Algona, and •the astounding total of 3577 out of Algona alone was found. This was accomplished by counting the number of letters mailed to air-1 ' mail points in the East, South and .

Algol)* Loses *Champ" Game. The Class A championship battle Saturday evening was one of the most thrilling games ever played at the Algona gymnasium. The game ended in a tie, and it took two overtime periods before Titonka became champion by a three- point bargln, 26-23. ' .

Displaying a good short passing attack, St. Cecelia's defeated Corpus Christi, Fort Dodge, Friday night, 30-22. Each member of Coach Kelly's team gave a good account of himself, but the work of sophomore Don K^jeski was outstanding. Besides the scoring of ten points, his work on defense and his all-around game marked him as best man of the evening. . Nelson, who also scored ten points, opened, the scoring with a set shot from the side. Kajeski, sank two field goals and a free' throw to give St. Cecelia's a 7-2 j lead at the end of the first.quar- ter, Kajeski and Elbert each tossed in a field goal, and Hargreaves a free throw, in the second quarter for a 12-11 half-time lead.

The winter season wns too warm this year for good bus, iness, hence many merchants are overloaded on merchandise which has to be sold now, and prices are cut to do the job. The savings that can bo made will make buying a pleasure hero this week. There Is still plenty of winter weather coming. Fire chief Ralph Elbert is convinced, after having spent the last week inspecting business buildings, that if owners and tenants will cooperate with the department in removing fire hazards from their premises, the city will be saved at least eight fires in a year. Mr. Elbert, new fire chief, has left the Kossuth Motor garage, where he had worked since 1925 as service manager, except for a year or two when he ran his own repair garage. Notices to Be Sent" For the time Mr. Elbert, as fire chief, is making an inspection of public buildings and places of bus 1 - iness in Algona. Plans for his future private activity are uncertain. Accompanying the fire chief on his inspections was one of the city officials, also one or two firemen. Owners will be notified of fire hazards which may exist on their premises. If follow-up inspection reveals that conditions have not been rem-j edied, then, after a second notice] is sent, the fire department will take care of the trouble and will charge the expenses to the owner. Firemen's Ball Talked. Plans for raising money for the fire department, for accident and death benefits, and for running expenses were discussed at the regular meeting of the firemen. ,.It is expected a firemen's ball or possibly a home-talent athletic exhibition will be given as soon as the weather is sufficiently settled. Des Moines has adopted such a plan for raising money for its fire department, and Wesley has for several years had an annual firemen's ball. HERE'S A LONG TALE ABOUT A SHORT POOCH AT 1RVINGTON Irvington, Feb. 6—Mr. "A" and Mr. "B" recently called at H. T. Sabin's. The former was well acquainted with the Sabins but the latter had not met them. Mr. "A" proceeded with the introduction, which was never officially finished. Just as Mr. "B" bowed his head slightly in acknowledgment, a small bulldog, pet at the Sabin home, realized there were strangers in the house and dashed full speed from the dining room into the kitchen where Mr. and Mrs. Sabin were (standing. and the callers lit will never be known whether the dog was going so fast that she could not see clearly or whether an imp of mischief possessed her. At any rate her frenzied course led her between Mr. "B's" feet. That gentleman, taken utterly unawares, and in the act of bowing slightly, landed flat on his back with his head lodged against the kitchen cabinet and his long legs reaching skyward. It is reported that Mr. "A" and Mr. Sabin laughed outright at the man's predicament, but Mrs. bin withheld her mirth till confused visitor assured her .,„„, nothing was hurt but his dignity. The dog, however, might have learned a lesson in manners for the dog was beneath Mr, "B." JURY AWARDS S50 VERDICT IN COURT CASE Costs in Cuit are $45 After Four Days of Trial.
