Misbach filed his reasons lor /refusing the appointment, charging that "continued failure and refusal to . . take care of personal obligations have retlect- id upon his moral character." Named Chief by Specht, Mr. -Van Alstyne had been on the force for several years, and upon the death of former chief Frank Green, was named chief by Mayor Specht. At the council meeting two weeks ago yesterday, when Mayor Misbach took'office, the appointment of officers did not include Mr. .Van Alstyne. Arthur Moulds ,was named chief, Cecil McGinnis and Tim O'Brien, night marshals. , The soldiers' preference law passed some years ago, requires that preference be given former 'soldiers in appointments to public ion la that their moral Character ind their fitness for the position equal among all the applicants. XOAV Mayor's Tosltion. Mr. Misbach, as recorded in the proceedings of the council at the organization meeting, said Mr. Van Alstyne had made oral application to him for the post, statement on record minutes gives two and in a in the city grounds for refusal to appoint him as follows: 1. Continued failure and refusal of Mr. H. A. Van Alstyne to take care of his personal obligations have reflected upon his moral character. 2. The issuance by Mr. H. A. Van Alstyne of checks without sufficient funds for payment of said checks, reflects bad moral character and impairs his efficiency as a law- enforcing officer. service jobs. The only nuallfioa- Mr. Van Alstyne contends that allure to meet current obligations does not reflect on moral charac- er, and says that" the refusal is not based on his fitness to hold the position. He also is denying writ- ng any "bad" checks. . Early Action Sought. In Mr. Van Alstyne's • petition early court action is to be asked. The case in the normal turn of events would not come on for trial till the September term of court September 26, as there are no Teg- ular terms between now and that date. However, the petition states Mr. Van Alstyne "Intends to make application for speedy determination of the issues as urgent ... in order to bring . . . the defendant before the court or judge and cause the issues to be tried in vacation." In this case a judge would have to prescribe a special form of notice of trial. SPRING WORK IS HALTED BY SNOW STORM Unexpected Blizzard Blankets County, Blocks Roads.

Algonians, the dog show at the Call theater last winter, and club members tearing the hotel after a recent meeting. The pictures were excellent, and the program one of the best the club has had in its 1C years. The pictures of members leaving the hotel- were a surprise and gave rise to many a laugh. Few, if any, knew they were being taken, and their various attitudes and expressions as they came out of the door and down the steps were unstudied: One of the most fetching fjhots of members was Supervisor McDonald coming out of the door and meanwhile calmly surrounding "a chaw of tcrbacker!" Two Paroled After Being Sent to Jail Bernard Briggs was sentenced o six months in jail Saturday by Judge G. W. Stillman after a plea of guilty to a charge of stealing 'rom a car.

Nugent, was notified Saturday that she was selected as one ot eight out at 430 applicants for an honorary '$200 scholarship at Grinnell college. The scholarship award came as a result of a competitive examina/ tion, which she took at Grinnell March 18. Out of the 430 who had applied to take the tests only 60 of the highest ranking students were permitted to take them. Mary Lee was one of four girls selected from the examination. Four boys were also selected. The examinations consisted of questions on literary acquaintan- cy, social science, Latin, mathematics, natural science, and each, student was allowed 40 minutes to answer the questions in each division. . In addition to this written examination each of the 60 had a 40-niinu'te conference with a faculty member. ' Mary Lee is a senior in the Algona high school this year. She has had grades high enough throughout her high, school career to exempt her from all but the required examinations. Si>J?

B. White, J. R. Murtagh, Richard Post, I. G. Dewel, Lloyd Bohannon, John Haggard. Mr. Harrington was a candidate for state vice-president, but was defeated, though by only two votes. Most of the junior organizations in Iowa are in southeastern Iowa and they consequently control the votes. A play of politics at the last minute won enough votes 1 to elect officers from that section. There are four vice-presidents. Meetings were held at the Savery hotel, and an inaugural banquet and dance was marred by tragedy, when a couple fell from a small balcony and the' girl was killed, her companion, wtoo was from Davenport, suffering a broken collar bone and other injuries. Old Galbraith Home is Sold to Scanlan Dr. F..C. Scanlan has purchased the Gall Pettit house, .formerly the George Galbraith home, State and Minnesota streets. E. J. Hough made the sale. The L. W. Gillespies live there now, hut will be movr ing in two weeks. Doctor Scanlan, who bought the place as an investment, plans to redecorate it, but does not yet know what use he will make of it The house, which has long been a landmark In Algona, still has the 'steeple 1 with which Algonlans of two generations have been familiar. tric't, and one for O'Brien county, which is part of another northwest Iowa district which is almost as badly discriminated against as this district in the present allocation' ot state senators. Jolt for Legislature? What court or courts issued the writs was' not stated, nor was the nature of the writs given. It is supposed here that the writs are not permanent but temporary, good only till they are judicially passed upon. On due hearing temporary writs may be made permanent. It is suspected that the question was brought to a head at this time mostly in order to hurry the legislature into consideration of a redistricting bill which has been asleep in committee for months and is now in one or the other sifting committee, or both, with small chance of a hearing. Five-County Conference. Though the constitutional mandate for redistricting after every census is plain, it Jias been violated by the legislature ever since 1911. There is no way to get at the legislature directly, the executive, the legislature, and the courts being mutually independent. Whether a side attack such as nov> proposed can be made to stick has never been .decided. The Spencer action was apparently taken as the result of a recent conference of men from the- counties in question. A delegation from Kossuth was perhaps invited, but seemingly no one from tlhis county attended. Gillette Bill Sponsor. Sen. Lester S. Gillette, Fostoria, it is believed here, was one of the sponsors of the redistricting committee buried in committee. This district consists of five counties, and he represents a population of some 80 thousand, whereas in eastern Iowa areas the populations are much less. The single sounty of Jackson, with only 18,000 population,'has a/senator. It is believed here that the redistricting bill now in committee would link Emmet and Kossuth as a district. Since Emmet's population is only a little more than half of Kossuth's, local, politicians take it for granted that if the bill were brought out Emmet would seek amendment for another connection, Kosisuth might, in fact, not be favored as mate by any other neighboring single county, since its population preponderance would enable it to keep the senatorship indefinitely. Other Cases Cited. The injunction actions also seek to enjoin Miller from issuing senatorial certificates of election in case an election is held, Peterson told Des Moines newspaper men that a test case would be carried to tihe supreme court if necessary. Reporters brought up an allied another adopted as an amendment a few years ago which limits urb,an counties to one senator. Under this amendment Polk, Woodbury, and Linn coun^ ties, containing Des Moines, Sioux City, and Cedar Rapids, respectively, have only one. senator each, though each county has a larger population than this' district's five counties. question by referring to constitutional provision W.
