VOL. 32.—NO. fi SWEA FARMER DEFIES EXTORTION PLOT West Bend Man Arrested in Thilges Assault Case CRAND JURY WILL !;BOND $2,500FURNISHED Byron Grove, 38, Turned f Over to County by Palo ! Alto Sheriff KNOWLEDGE OF CASE Byron Otan, SB, of west Bend, was faring iadtotmWrt by the Kossuth county grand jttjr, •« the result of develop- •wnto in a case which originated south. <«t Whittemore, October 14, when Nick Thilges, Whittemore farmer, waa ao- ootted and struck over the head in a mysterious attack. The case came to a head here when Grove was forested last Wednesday night by Sheriff Montgomery of Palo Alto county, on request of Kossuth county officers. It seems that al-. though Thilges did not publicly divulge the name of his assailant, he told Sheriff Carl Dahlhauser that he suspected drove was the man. A warrant for Qrove's arrest was then issued, and officers have been looking for him since then. Aflks Preliminary Hearing Before Justice P. A. Danson, Thursday, Grove was charged with assault with an attempt to malm. G. D. Shumway represented the state in the case, «B County Attorney McMahon was ill at the time. Thilges was the only witness called, and he stated that tat was bound over to the grand jury, and bond was fixed at $2,500. The bond'was furnished by Grove's father In West Bend. K. J. Van Ness was retained as attorney for the defendant. Grove denied any connection with the case. He said he did not do It and was not there at the time. He stated he had been working. One conflicting bit of testimony concerning Grove resulted when he was quizzed as to whether or not he was married. At first he said he was married, and ejiother that he was "not exadtly married, later entirely denying that he was married. County Much Interested It was reported that Grove was in Jail in Humboldt some time ago in connection with a liquor charge. He Is well known in the West Bend community, and the entire southeastern portion of Kossuth county, where the case is attracting more than ordinary interest. The decision of the grand jury which reconvened yesterday morning, after a recess. is therefore being awaited , with interest. Sherman Candidate For Liquor Store Man The new liquor law about to be passed by the Iowa legislature will likely authorize the establishment of a state liquor store in each county seat and It la essential that these state men, to be appointed by the governor, be men of high character. The name of Tom Sherman has been mentioned for the store-keeper at Algona and he would undoubtedly fill the bill In all respects. He was for some years president of the Algona State Bank and his character and ability Is unquestioned. His many friends in Algona and Kossuth county • glad to see him get the appointment.

OF KOSSUTH FARMERS SIGNING CORN-HOG BLANKS About 3,000 Farms Expected to be Under Control Plan in County A prediction that at least 95 per cent of all farms in Kossuth county will be under the corn and hog reduction plan before the sign-up is concluded, was made Monday by Harry Bode, county chairman, who waxed enthusiastic at the cooperation and effort being expended by all workers and farmers in he county in connection with the plan. Everything was reported as work- ng nicely, and although Kossuth coun- y with over 3,000 farms will not be the first county to make a concpiete report, progress is being made. One township, Cresco, reported that it would very likely have all but two or three contracts signed and ready for delivery within a day or two. Plan Cleanup Days Several townships are planning cleanup days, at which time the township committees will attempt to> gather up all the loose ends, and encourage some of those who are further behind with their compilations on the contracts to step on the gas, and give them whatever aid they can. The government's corn4iog production control program which seeks to reduce hog marketing by at least 25 per cent in 1934 will not cause a shortage of pork products in the ttnited States, according to the extension service at Iowa State College. Normal needs of the American people for pork and lard and also for the probable export demand during the coming year have oeen taken into full account in planning the program, according to advices to the extension service from Secretary of Agriculture Wallace. Changes to Foreign Export Vast changes in foreign and domes' ' - • to*v* left One of the most interesting of the modern ideas in education is being carried out at the Ledyard school f which A. E. Lauriteen Is superln- endent. It is a plan of student self- Overnment, called the Purple and Gold Activity Association. Three mem- jers from the student body are named n each of four committees—literary, thletic, forensic and music—and these welve students, with the assistance of a tudent secretary and faculty advisors, onduct the extra curricular activities, >)an their own affairs, and supervise xpendlturcs or projects along any of he lines mentioned. The group meets •very two weeks and takes care of the msiness at hand. The plan is what Superintendent Lauritzen aptly terms "theory of responsibility." That is, n handling their own affairs, the stud- nts themselves benefit by having a ense of responsibility developed. And ,11 ten teachers on the staff have con- •rlbuted their bit to helping the organ- zatlon. The criticism so often aimed at edu- ction is that it teaches pupils out of books, but leaves them woefully ignorant in the matter of conducting heir own affairs, of stepping into the business, professional or agricultural ife for which they are destined. The aim Of the Purple and Gold Activity Association is to give the high school students a real opportunity to think along business lines, learn the rules of parliamentary procedure, and to become accustomed to working with each other toward a common goal. And do •he pupils like It—well, you ask them. Mr. Lauritaen was born at Ringsted. :owa. and graduated from grade school there. He graduated from Oarner high n 1923, and then attended Upper Iowa University at Fayette for two years. His first assignment was as coach and jrinclpal at Renwlck, where he was ocated for three years. He then re- ;urned to Upper Iowa in 1928 and 1929 where he finished his last two years, and also took a bride. He attended summer school at Oreeley, Colo, and took graduate work at the Colorado State University at Boulder, Colo. After serving as principal and coach on« hog in every corn belt in recent years, and an ex cess at wound 20 million acres of corn Hog production in this country has remained high, with federally inspected slaughter averaging around 54 million head annually. On the other hand American exports of pork and lard have declined from about 2 billion pounds in 1923 to 711 million pounds In 1932. the smallest In 60 years. The resulting excess of pork and lard on the domestic market has driven prices to record low level and has prevented their rise. Three Farmers Get Wheat Checks Wheat checks to the three Kossuth farmers who signed the wheat allott- ment plan were received here this week. The checks were as follows: C. B. Albright, $944; P. M. Chrtstensen, $23.40; Carl Albright, $636. Prominent LuVerne Woman Laid to Rest Mrs. Henry Oelshecker, 54 years old, died of double pneumonia and compli :atlons at her home west of LuVerne Thursday. Funeral services were held from the Catholic church In St. Joe Saturday.

She leaves two daughters, Irene, a teacher in Rolfe, and Mrs. Prances Hilbert, west of LuVerne, and other relatives and friends who deeply mourn her passing from their midst.

Juchem in Court Ed Juchem of Bancroft was charged with unlawful retention of a storage battery in the court of Justice H. B. White, last Saturday and after paying the costs and making restitution to the plaintiff, H. D. Clapsaddle, the case was dismissed. D.

SIX THREATENING NOTES ASK SHAW FOR $1700 CASH Received Two Letters toy Mail; Other Four Found in Yard . j 2 SHERIFFS PROBE DETAILS OF AFFAIR A. E. LAUIIITZEN Our secret Investigation discloses that since getting Into the same vicinity -with George Moulton he has developed into something of a fisherman. Somehow or other the Ledyard community took to calling him "Abe, 1 and whether or not it was because he has the tall, slender build of Abe Lincoln, or just because he is honest, we do not know, but the nickname sticks. And Ledyard boosters have reason to be proud of their school's record in athletics. In the spring of 1931. the high school team won the county class "B" title and then went to the state tournament semi-finals, an unusual record equalled by Hurt this past spring, if our memory aerveo us correctly.

He turned the matter over to Sheriff Carl Dahlhauser, last week, and It was understood that the sheriff was making an investigation. First Note Last Spring Shaw told about the notes. He received, the first one last spring, mailed on a train between LaCrosse and Eau Claire, Wis. He paid no attention to it. The second one was mailed on a Warn between Belle Plalne, Minn,, and Sanborn. He again ignored It. But when he recalved four notes at various places on his farm, he began to feel that the perpetrators of the writing: were moving closer to home, and he finally decided to tell officials about it. The last note he received instructed him to leave $1,700 at a point five miles north of East chain. The note writers evidently figured that Shaw would have $1,700 handy to comply with their request, but he did not do so, and said he did not Intend to, VMt Joking Stkge Although fin* ' " ' " - " " -',«»., 2 Days Here Next Week Two Kidnapers, on Way to Trial, Pass Thru' Algona In the early hours of the morning: last Friday and Saturday, an hour when food citizens are asleep, but the bad men are prone to roam about, two notorious criminals passed through Alg-ona on the westbound Sloox of the Milwaukee road, headed for Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to RKfend trial for the kidnap- ing 1 of a Denver business man.
