The Algona Upper Dea Moinea, Algona, Iowa, Feb. 8,1934 Two Livermore Brothers, 22, 18, Iowa's Youngest Stock Buyers JENNINGS BOYS FOLLOW DAD'S SHOES IN WORK Have Shipped 103 Carloads of Stock, Hogs During Past Month The following story, reprinted from Th« Port Dodge Messenger, should be of general Interest to our many readers, especially in the neighborhood of LuVerne, Livermore and St. Joe. •What is believed to be the two youngest livestock buyers in the state of Iowa, for the large volume of stock they have bought, and the large sums of money that they have paid out, live at IJvermore. Theodore and Clayton Jennings, sons of Charles Jennings of Ltvermore, are the young men that can claim this novel honor. Ted, as he is generally known here, is 23 years of age, and date Is 18. 'When the elder boy was between 12 and 13 years of age, the health of his father began to fail, and Ted stepped into the harness and would go on buying expeditions with the father and later •when the health of his father was almost completely impaired for a few on, $25 will be given away on the stage years he took over the responsibility of O f the theatre. The affair is not a lot- and graduated two years ago from the Ltvermore high school, and starred on the basketball team and entered the state meet at Des Moines. Father 1 * Condition G»lns The father has regained to some extent his health, and has been, of a great deal of assistance to the boys during the past year, and while he may act as general adviser, the boys carry on the responbility of the buying, and general handling of stock from here and Bode. They have bought 103 carloads of hogs and cattle during the past month from this vicinity, shipping this amount from Livermore and Bode. The number of cars that they shipped last week alone from Livermore and Bode was 32. Goes to Chicago For a number of years the firm bought and sold stock here. Later, Orin went to Chicago where he formed & partnership with what was known as the Dowd and Jennings commission firm, and at the present time lives In Chicago and the firm is known as W. O. Jennings and company. Grant does farming southeast of Livermore, and the Charles Jennings family lives here. Call Theatre Plans Bank Deposit Night Tuesday, February 20, will witness the first Bank Deposit Night at the Call Theatre, Manager N. C. Rice announces. Every Tuesday evening from Feb. 20 4-H CLUB ACTIVITIES PROVIDE YOUNG RURAL FOLKS WITH MANY PROJECTS the firm at this potat. Check for $12,000 When the lad was 13 years old, he wrote a check for the sum of $12,000 to some Humboldt men that he had himself purchased stock of, and seeing the unusualness of the deal, a phone call was put through to Livermore, to have the banker O. K. matters, in view of the fact that the party at the other • end of the line stated, it was just a "kid" that gave the check, but found that it was gilt edge and no cause for : worry. ' Ted continued to buy stock after •I school hours, yes, and at the noon hour • and shipped out on Saturday. He fln- ; iBhed high school, and took active part Jn athletics. A few years later, Clate i Joined the ranks, and for the past three years has been taking his share of the responsibility of the buying. During the past season, he went into the Da- kotaa and bought up several cars of stock, shipping some to Livermore for re-shipment, and also sent some direct to market from the buying point. He made more than one of these trips, and would stay from ten days to three ; w«eka on these buying trips. He too stayed with his school work, tery; anyone who signs his or her name at the registration desk in the lobby is eligible. The only requirement is that the person whose name is called shall be in the theatre at the time of the drawing, or else holding a ticket on the outside. If the person whose name Is drawn is not in the theatre, the money will go Into the next week's draw, thus making a $50 award, and so on until someone is successful. Registration Is to start immediately, Mr. Rice stated, and one registration will be all that Is necessary. F. W.

Company Butterfat -Poultry - Eggs KOSSUTH FARMS AND FOLKS By Will Harris, Farm Editor Where Every Day is Pay Day/ Julian Arndorfer had a good turnout for his farm sale last week although a vicious wind air most blew the crowd away. Clayon Angle of Wes- ey bought Julan's binder and figured that he) got a. bargain. Unong those present were Jacob ilaasdam, George Arndorfer, Frank Eisenbarth, Phll- p Immerfall, Lyle and Ray Black. Joe Ctnk, Will Decker, Alex Eischen, Tony " Grandgenett, Frank Bentele, Nick Arndorfer, Jim r iTTERFAT doesn't improve with age. A chicken, ready for market, strutting through the barnyard, is merely a non-paying boarder. An ancient eggia more useless than a month-old daily newspaper. The time to sell produce ia the day it's ready for sale. Swift & Company will buy it that day. • • • Swift & Company's produce plants—more than a hundred—are open six days a week. Each one is ready and anxious to buy from its farm patrons when their products are most valuable, and to pay cash on delivery. Prices paid are competitive. They are based, not oil local conditions, but on national supply and demand. Swift's IJrookfield Butter and Eggs, Swift's Premium Chickens and Golden Wesi Fowl, ah" can and do go where they are most eagerly desired. • • • Swift & Company salesmen, selling butter, eggs, poultry, cheese and meats at the same time on their rounds, cut down distribution costs of both.

Bill Eich recorded the sales. Joe Arndorfer of TJfcion township is going to move down into Cresco township soon, onto the farm across the road from George Hahle. Now that we have the devalued dollar for which Father Coughlin has been asking for several year*, what are we going to do •with it? 1m it going to aid the farmer by increasing the prices of his produce Time alone will tell the story. At least, the United States Treasury benefltted from the move— by a mere $2,700,000,000. That's something—rather reassuring, in fact, in face of the tremendous debt assumed under Recovery projects. Establishment of Pioneer Sherman Church Recalled Irvington: Mrs. Elizabeth Lempke, mother of Armor Lernpke, prominent Irvington farmer, recently related an nterestlng story of an early day Sunday School. It was in the summer of ;B89 that Mrs. Lempke with the assistance of Mrs. Alec Larner started a Sunday School at the center school of Sherman township commonly known as Sherman Center. This beginning formed a neucleus for a union church which was later established, and for many years a circuit riding minister supplied the pulpit. Christmas programs and various entertainments were provided here for the good ot the community. In later years the pastor of the LuVerne Presbyterian church had charge of the services. Other families associated with tills pioneer project were the Sam Steussys, Max Millers, Archie Currans, Mike Kalens, Rastus Grubbs and others whom Mrs. Lempke could not recall. Some years afterward the ladles of this church started the Sherman Good Will club which still exists today in that community. Some years ago this church was abandoned like many churches of the rural districts, the members affiliating with the larger churches in the nearby towns of Lu- Verne, Livermore and Irvington.
