Ledyard «on the right to enter toe state meet toy defeating Aplington, 26 to 19, In the anal of the class "B" district meet. Algona, also going to the finals In claw "A", bowed before a rangy and rough Mason City team, 28 to 14, after Molding the Mason Cityans well in check for three quarters. Ledyard Off Form Despite its victory in the final, It was the opinion of close followers of Coach "Abe" Lauritoen's team that the boys were off form. Easy shots were missed, something unusual for Ledyard, and the passing was wildly erratic at times. But the Kossuth quint had Apttngton well In band durlnp the entire melee, and they did more work tban against Orafton, In the semi-final of the district, which team they defeated 35 to 16 without working up a sweat. Lloyd, Ledyard center, came into his own in the Aplington game. He tallied flv* baskets white his oppent went scoreless. Thompson and Warner each contributed their share of points, while Brandt and Moulton played bang up ball at the guard poste. Alfpaa Scores Ftrit In the fldal game between Mason City and Algona. Algona tallied first •when Oretzmeyer dropped one In. Mason Otty ertened the count, and Algona •wenb ahead on a free throw. Mason Otty again tied it with a free throw and the game see-sawed back and forth. Sellstrom's long ones wen mainly responsible for be fact that Majoa City «ttd tot pull away until toe Ledyard Boys Have Gone A Long Way During the first half Algona had trouble fathoming the Mason City attack. Finally two men were switched on Stoecker In defensive play, with OreUmeyer watching from behind and Foot hampering him from the front. This stopped his effectiveness, but about thati time Herbemer and Harrer, the two forwards, began to find their shooting eye, and it spelled ruin for Algeria. There was no disgrace In the defeat. Algona went several games further in the state high school play than preseason done would entitle it to, and the outcome of the game clearly proved that a cood, rangy team. Is better than a good, small team. Bough Broth of Babies Mason City olayed rough basketball despite the f.».ct thfct ttoj scorsbook credited Algona with one more foul than Mason City captured. The Cerro Oordo quint used its weight and its size to good advantage, and car not be blamed for that. Its sole retson lor winning waa the fait that It had a distinct height advantage, and a proup of more experienced and aged p' avers—Algona did not yield a point in effort or fight. As said before, Ledyard had no trouble In downing GrifTn. 25 to 16, in the Thursday semi-flnai. while the Al- Kona-Belmond game was a nip and tuck affair. "Cutle" Post dropped in the winning 1 field goal with seven seconds to go. In this bati'.a Algona was again hampered by meeting a rangy team, and oo.'y some ex.Hlen', shno'- Ing and a late rally won the ball game.

Baseball Fans Hope for Algona Entry in Iowa-Minnesota Loop Tio of Local Men Plan to Attend League Meeting at Fairmont Sunday A trio of Algona baseball enthusiasts, Joe Kelly, Mel Falkenhalner and Stewart McPadden, will attend an organization meeting of the Iowa-Minnesota League to be held at Fairmont, Sunday, It was learned this week. A meeting of about 15 baseball fans was held last Friday evening, at which time further details of the proposed Is ston of M which are practically certain of enter- Ing the league are Fairmont, Forest City, Austin, Albert Lea. Spencer and BsthervlUe. Algona and one other team would make a nicely balanced eight team league, with not much more than 60 miles as a traveling radius for the teams. Spring Training Session A spring training session would be called for, under the present plans, and all baseball players would be entitled to try out at this session. A squad of 13 players would finally be selected by the regular manager. This manager would be chosen by whatever group of men backed the local team, and he would be a person capable of handling the team all season. A former Des Molnes player of the Western League has been mentioned as a likely manager for Algona should thld city have a team. The club would be on an all salary basis, but no salary would be over $60 a month, and many might not be nearly as high, depending on the player's ability and their actual expenses as well aa other factors. Develop Young Players One of the purposes of the league Is •\a help develop young players hi this organization, which would carry a class 'O" rating, and also provide good baseball for local fans. A four day schedule would be worked out, under the tentative plans, with two games a week played away from home and two games at home. Apltngton (19) Fg Ft Dreer. f 1 0 R.

In 1907 the Presbyterian church observed what they called their "semi-centennial" and that would make this church a,year older than the Congregational i~thau«ht-a little explanation of this matter might interest your readers. B. F. Reed in his history of the county says, "The Presbyterians have the credit for organizing the firs church of any kind in the county.' Then he goes on to tell about Rev D. 8. McComb who preempted land in the Black Cat preached in the neighborhood cabins of the and few REVAMPED BOOSTER, LINEUP A WINNER Willard of Wesley, Other "Importations" Help lo 28-24 Victory The Mtwnped Algnoa Boosters turned in A well-earned and hard-fought rr, on Wednesday erening «rt last week, OYW the Chicago Americans, tr»- veBng colored team. The final score was 28 to 34, and represents a ta»» balf rally trOUoh WM veil worth watching. Boora at the half was 17 to 16 in favor of the negro team. IWUlard of Wesley, high school coach at that place, led the Algona scoring, allying three baskets ami seven free throws. He missed only two free throws. during the evening. Delm and Petenon of Swea City were two other stars playing with Algona while Jennings of Uvennore was another outside addition. Walker and *earaon represented the local talent. Algona outplayed the visitors in every quarter, showing a strong defense and a fast passing attack .

Official*— Referee, Martin of Oria- nell; umpire, Rump of MacPherson. The Mick Krieps family moved to their home in Union purchasHi about three years ago and which had been tenanted the past two years by Mr. and Mrs. Joe who have mov- . ed to a farm south of St. Benedict. Presbyterians that were there—the RelbhoS, Schryver and Love families Most of the records of history do no speak very kindly of this first Presbyterian. Even for a frontier community he was a little rough. He chewed tobacco, and, when he preached, often spat in the middle of his discourse to make his point emphatic. He •was careless in manner and dress and often the butt of the boys' Jokes. Mrs. Oowles In her book "Early Algona" tells of the fears of the wife of Father Taylor when she thoght this crude Presbyterian might assist at her funeral. Mr. McComb and Father Taylor both came to the county in 1856 and It was apparent right away that the gentle- mar.-and-scbolar, Father Taylor, was going to atraot more people than Mr. McOomb. But In 1857, September 25th, to be exact, a traveling minister, or missionary, from the Dubuque Presbytery came here and, working with Mr. McComb, organized the Presbyterian church. The records of the church show Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Henderson, the Michael Reibhofl's, and Elizabeth and Elmira Heckert among the charter members. Alexander Brown and August Zahlten were others of the first settlers, promnient In developing the country, who belonged to this first church. Whether the competition was too keen or there was not enough difference between the Presbyterian and Congregational groups to warrant two churches, nevertheless this organization only lasted to 1877. The records of session of the last two years—1876- 1877—ehow the dlmslssal of almost all of the members of the Presbyterian church to the Congregational church of thla city. Apparently Father Taylor had won over the followers of Mr. McComb. After 1877 the hand of H. M. Taft, clerk, made no more records la the session book. As far as the community was concerned there never had been a Presbyterian church in the town. There had never been a building for worship. The Presbyterians worshipped everywhere, in other churches, in school houses, in log cabins, and they held meetings in Lotta Creek, Darlen, Armstrong's Grove, Irvlngton, Cresco and Black Cat. The church was "dead" and the Prebytery and Synod took no pains to bury it. The church was never declared extinct. In 1885 under the work of a Sunday School missionary. Rev. J. B. Clapp, who discovered that there wins still Presbyterian Interest here organized the present church. Because there was no record concerning the burial of this church the new church in 1907 decided to forget it had lain dormant for 18 years and celebrate its 50th anniversary. The new church used the books used by the church of 1867- 18V7 and forgot the blank pages. Whether the present organization is a new one, a re-organized one, or a revived one depends on your point of view. The connection between the Congregational and Presbyterian churches of tbsi city has always been friendly. Being the first two churches in the town their interests have been identical for for than seventy-five years. The records of the Presbyterian church show many ti'ansfers from one church to Che other, although the Congregational FOREIGN CANNED MEAT UNDER BAN BY SWEA CITYANS Livestock Shippers, Grocers Unite to Promote TI. 8. Raised Meat Two dozen cans of corned beef which were packed in Uruguay, came in for a good bit of discussion at a recent meeting of the North Kossuth Livestock Shipping Association, according to the Swea City Herald. The shippers asked the merchants through a resolution, to stop buying foreign canned meat and meat products. The Herald then interviewed the merchants, and found that none of them knew beforehand that the meat they were buying was of foreign origin. Cans packed In both the United States and Uruguay, bearing the same labels, came In the same boxes. The ones packed In Uruguay, however, had that fact stamped on the covers. Qro- cerymen declared that they would do all they could to keep foreign canned goods off their shelves. Leonard Mlno, George Nyman, Wm. Thompson and Ole Kvamsdale were elected directors of the shipp'n? group, while the annual report was also made. Gross sales for the year amounted to $56,901.13.

When the new Presbyterian church was organized in 1895 there was much taJk of "narrow deuomanationaliian" and waste. A new church was not needed. There were plenty in town aiready. The Presbyterians were dead; why dldnt they stay dead? Yet the new group went ahead and, even when it had moit trouble than it could bear, kept on hoping for better tomes. —Ray Kresensky.
