Humboldt won the meet with 83 points, and Clarion nipped Arthur Priebe, of Lone Rock, president of the Kossuth. Conservation ', League announced yesterday thait the league's committee on the annual Field Day location had picked a new site for this year's event—a natural amphitheater seven miles northeasit of Algona just north of the Plum Creek gravel Pit. The new location was chosen because Field Day has grown .so large in. the last four years thalt a more' centrally located site 'in a. more accessible location, with all-weather parking, has becom essential. The parking problem has become acute for last yeai between 4000 and 5000 cars hac to be taken care of. Nature Formed a "BowL" The new location is a 120-acre pasture on the old Klamp' farm, now being farmed by William Kuhn. At this spot there is a great,bend in the river, and water erosion has formed an ideal outdoor "bowl" with 80 acres of high pasture land suitable for parking cars. A hundred feet bettoW' this parking area the ground slopes to the river,' with 30 acres of perfectly flat blue grass pasture with the river bordering on the north and Otto and Amos Schreck, brothers, have been bound to the grand jury on charges of malicious threats to extent growing out of alleged attempts to force repayment by erring Algona clerks. Otto was "bound over Saturday night by Justice Danson after a preliminary hearing lasting till 3 a. m. Amos was bound over yesterday afiternoon, by Justice Daneon. The Schrecks are allegedly the leaders of a group of seven, including two women said to be the wives of the Schreck brothers, who investigate clerks for store owners, and check to see if the dlerks are stealing. How Racket Wag Worked. It is alleged they caught two erring clerks in Algona, and forced one to turn over a car and money, and tried to force another to repay a sum which they fixed as his probable "take" from the business for which he was working. According to reports the meth- d used to catch the clerk was the hurry-up" style, in which all seven, one at a time, ganged up to make purchases from the clerk when he was the only one in the pttace of business. When an erring clerk was discovered the amount they found he had taken was multiplied by the number of days he had worked to reach a large sum, which they demanded. Thus If a clerk was caught taking a dollar, and had worked for 250 days, the demand would be for $250. "Third Degree" Methods. According to officers the clerk was taken to a hotel room or some other convenient .quarters and there given a "third degree," and a. "confession" . including the amount was presented to him for signature. With -the "confession" the men are charged with threatening to cause the clerk's arrest unQess he replaced the money. The section of the code under ' which the pair were bound over reads as .follows: "If any person, either verbally or by any written or printed communication, maliciously threatens to accuse another of a crime or offense, or to do any injury to the person or property of another .with 'intent to extort any money or pecuniary advantage whatever, or to compel the person so threatened to do any act against his will, he shall be imprisoned^ in • the penl- tenitdary not more than five years east. Thus it will be possible for or be fined not exceeding $1000, or spectators in the front row of car to watch the entire day's activities without leaving the car. Preparations Already Begun. The "committees are starting work early this year, and tonight unit officers and the board of directors of the league will meet at the Lodge in the CaJll state park; Advance details, including setting of the date, will be completed.
