NEW RATE IS REQUESTED FOR FARM LIGHTS Increased Use is Seen as Basis for New Bracket. as/1 for Drivers License Seen 100 MUST RENEWAL JEFORNULYI 500 Had Made lication Up to Yesterday. 500 had .applied ' at ' the |B office iip to'yesterday af- i (or renewal of their auto ; licenses, thus indicating a rush for the next few weeks. The] period of renewal without examination expires July 1, and persons who fall to renew before that date must take the regular examination. There are between 14,000 and 15,000 driving licenses in Kossuth county, and all expire July 1. A force of three, including Casey Loss, Deputy Arthur Cogley, and Gladys Stoeber, of Fenton, is handling the license applications. Must Present Old Licenses. It is necessary that the old driver's license be presented at the time the new is applied.for. The old license is stamped paid on the back to indicate that the fee for a new license,. has been paid, and across .the face of the old permit is stamped an extension of the permit till September 1. This latter provision is import- tant for those who drive outside of Iowa. States require Iowa license for Iowa drivers, and if an Iowa driver was called upon to present his license after July 1, and it indicated that it had expired, considerable embarrassment would probably result. What is Required. •The information required on the application for a new license is as follows: County name. Date. Name of operator. Street address. City or town. Occupation. » Sex, weight, color hair,, color eyes, heighth, color. , '• Date 1 of birth: Year, month and day. ; Usual signature. Questions to be Answered. In addition the following ques- tions are asked: "Do you have an Iowa operator's license?" "Give its number." "Were you ever denied an operator's license?" "If so, give date and reason." "Is your license under revocation or suspension?" "Do you have a stub detached from your operator's license?" False statements made to secure a permit may cause the license to be suspended or revoked. Those who wish can apply direct to the Driver's License Dept., Statehouse, Des Moines, Iowa, by sending a money order • or check. for 50 cents with the application. Also those who. wish, can • have their 'picture included p.n. the license at no extra cost simply by enclosing a head photograph one inch by one and a quarter inches with the application. \all League Off to Good GAMES; SEASON'S 4RD SUNDAY >ft, Swea City, nton, & Wesley, i are Winners. ie second series of games I Sunday by teams .in the " baseball league, Bancroft "n Burt in the last .half of i Inning iu a see-saw game. une was won on an error in Id which was followed by a i by Welp. - )HV; . game, originally scheduled played at Burt, was switched croft because the Burt field owet from last week's rains. *ord follows: *woft-«, 8, 1, Pattern* FORTY-NINE AUTOS ARE SOLD IN WEEK The warm weather of the last two weeks has been a life-saver for automobile dealers, who have sold 49 new automobiles.

Secret Marriage Announced Here Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Schultz are announcing the secret marriage of their son, Armin Nelson Schultz, to Jean Ann Runchey, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ellis Runchey, former Algonians now living at Ne- sho, Mo. The marriage took place August 6, at the Methodist parsonage in Bethany, Mo, The Schultzes are now visiting Mr. ; Schultz's parents here, and plan to leave on a honeymoon trip |o Minnesota lakes this week-end. Mr, Schultz is employed at the creamery oil station. The new Mrs. Schultz is a grand-daughter of Mrs. Mary Runehey, Algona, Mr. Schultz drove to Neos.ho Saturday for his bride, returning, to Algona yesterday. Robert, son of the Ellis Runcheys, came back with them to spend the summer at his uncle Robert Runchey's, south of town. The city council held a short meeting Thursday night, and allowed bills. Because of so many special meetings held during the past few weeks there was little.to be taken Up-the regular Session; Secretaries of , -the five , farm lines which purchase electricity from hte city attended the meeting, and three councilman and Supt. Pollard discussed rates with them. When the farm lines were established they were promised a decrease in rate when the volume of electricity used'reached its present level. Therefore a new bracket for the increased electricity used will be established by the city in the near future for the farm lines. "Juice" at Wholesale. Electricity sold to the lines is sold at wholesale, with the farm lines, meters, -transformers, and other expenses of tnaintainance paid by the farmers. Hence the situation is somewhat different than in service to city patrons where the lines, the meters, transformers, and other costs must be met and therefore included in the rate. No building permits were granted by the council Thursday because they all had been granted previously in other meetings.. However • to ' enable contractors ' to secure a permit in an emergency a committee of any two councilmen was authorized to speak for' the entire council in rush cases.

Two children have been struck >y cars within the last two months, but fortunately the injuries were not serious because the cars were not going fast. However there is a group of youngsters who have been driving 'n the afternoons and early evenings at high rates of speed, and short shrift •will be made of any caught exceeding the speed limit n the future. The speed limit in the school and business districts is 20 miles an hour and in the residential districts is 25 miles per hour. This is plenty fast for ordinary travel. Also incorporated in the drive against speeders is a drive against car drivers who follow fire trucks to calls at racing speeds. The sounding of the fire whistle does not suspend the speed laws, and Chief Moulds believes there is no rush for anyone not particularly concerned with the burning property. If the fire is a good one it will be in full blaze during ordinary driving time from anywhere in the city limits, he said. The officers are not concerned particularly with out-of-Algona persons who inadvertently exceed the limit by a mile or so but the — , chasing of cars around the streets mance for price adjuitment pay- by youngsters during the evenings arrangements for the annual The county committee, consist- Fourth of July celebration at the ing of Chairman R.

Chief Ralph Elbert and Harold Johnson of the local fire department. Harry Barton aliened two cjays; Ray Barton, one day. Classes were conducted Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and Friday, with around 400 men attending each day. There were demonstrations of f ire-if ighting tactics, fire prevention, the handling and upkeep of equipment, raising ladders, ventilation in burning buildings, first- aid, etc. There were speakers from differene parts of * the state, also from out of the state. One objective stressed was to make the public fire-conscious by teaching the dangers of fire. This school was a part of government vocational work. The local firemen were pleased with the success of a firemen's ball held,last week Tuesday evening at Floral hall on the fair grounds. They cleared some $300.

Special attention is being paid this year to the fireworks program which is staged only at the celebration. The fireworks feature of the night fair program was discontinued some years ago.

This picnic, open to the public, is in celebration of the closing of the spring crow and predator hunt. Announcement will be made of the unit winning a traveling trophy for high score. The Lone Rock unit won last year. Prizes will also be awarded to four high-scoring junior members : . The Algona Archery club will put on an interesting demonstration. At least one of the new midget traps will be provided. This small trap was popular at Burt and Algona shoots,, also at a WaU- bonsie Conservation League field day reported 'last week. There will be two 16-yard traps this year, instead of only one, so many shooters may shoot for their own amusement.. Five-man teams from the several units will compete for the county- championship and a traveling silver trophy. • Wesley won the championship last year with the remarkable score of 122 birds. There were nine units competing last year, but it is expected that more will enter this year. Shells and ammunition will be sold on the grounds.
