A TEAR OF ACTTVITT Algona and Kossuth county can look forward to n year of activity and public improvements, things to make the path of life more 1 pleasant, and the Joy of living a bit greater. In Kossuth county, one of the projects for which it would seem everyone should wage a hearty campaign, is the conservation plan for Union Slough. It may not succeed; bub it would eeem that a permanent Improvement of this kind, aiding in the reestablishment of wild Hfe in Kossuth, should receive united support. It would be an improvment for the present and future generations. In Algona, several very worthwhile projects have been advanced. The Algona Community Chib haa taken up the matter of placing a beacon light atop the new water twwer. It would certainly offer a friendly welcome to any and all who chance to come this way after dark. And, the lights for the athletic field eeem to be on the way. and are another civic improvement that seems to meet with general public approval. All that is needed now is to get the cooperation of the park board, school board and city council, and the lights go up. There are probably many other worthy projects, like the above, which should go to make the year 1934 one of •ottvtty. Let's on up the gears and get under way. We hare a fine city; let's maintain H that way. BORAH BLOWS OFF Senator Borah, genial gentleman from TJtah, who can be counted upon to put on a good show every time he arises from his seat in the senate, has again come into the limelight. Speaking over the radio recently, the Idaho broadcaster roared flre and brimstone against the administration's plan of controlled agricultural production and efforts to cut down production. He said it was all non- aense; that It would not work; that we did not need a Dennis Pratt may soon become known as the sage of North Thotlngton street ... he recently made the philosophical remark that there was no use in having a dog- if you did all the barking yourself. Joe Bloom is quite a pool player, but he can't stand it when an opponent socks the 13 and 15 into the same pocket on one shot . . . P. s. That shot cost Joe 15 cents. "Spring Is here," but as Lloyd Bohannon remarked In pri Drift his overcoat about his ears, last week, she mnsta catgfht cold on th* way. • • * The Saturday Review of Literature contains the following ad clipped from a San Francisco newspaper.

Adolph Zukor, motion picture producer, recently made the statement that motion picture producers cannot afford to take chances. Evidently Adolph was not associated with the producers of George White's Scandals. And maybe another trouble with the girls of the modern generation Is that they are too easy to get and too hard to get along with. A picture of the first Algona high school football team graced one comer of the Des Moines Register Iowa pictorial section, Sunday. The boys looked sort of familiar Chuck Nicoulin, Hal Cowan and Abner Long are the only ones of the group still in this vicinity, a scout reports. The iaceing effect and the hand-painted letters on the uniforms caused quite a little comment. Coach Mercer could have used a few men last fall with the physical proportions displayed by the first Algona Bulldogs. * n*w» ««m says that the Iowa Mayflower d««M*an«a are «e. m*«t at Spencer thfa week.

JOE ANNOUNCED We understand that the girls in the cast of "Lela- wala." high school operetta, had some trouble getting into the costumes of the Indian maidens. Just goes to show that the modern miss is faring better m the way of fodder at the daily meals than did her red-skinned predecessors, or else that costume house didnt take into reckoning the results of the wholesome Kossuth county life. cut in production, etc. He may be right about some of his views. Senator Borah is quite a farmer himself. He has a ranch In Idaho, you know, and if you've been to Idaho you know what kind of a ranch it is. He raises a splendid crop of cactus on his ranch, and he haa some of the very finest sand to be found in the whole country. The Union Pacific railroad has a whistling post at the station near the ranch—the station's name is Borah, by the way TO* tralna whistle every time they go by. Probably to frighten the jackrabbits off the main line as much as anything else. Now the way we look at this thing. If land such a« Borah's was allowed to etay In lt« natural state, and if irrigation project* which cost a lot of money were not attempted, and thus put into production a large area of land not suited by nature for production, there might not be a need for reduction of production in tillable areas such as Iowa. But Senator Borah haa plumped con- The United State* has wasted time and money trying to pu& land into production that la not needed right at present. Let Senator Borah we a little common sense and flght against THAT bit of tomfoolery. THE IRELAND OF THE PACIFIC The Philllppine Islands now practically have their own Independence if they want it. The senate passed the Philippine independence bill, and the measure at this writing awaita only the signature of the president. The bill gives the Islands until October 1 to decide whether or not they want independence. This little Ireland of the Pacific has offered us plenty of complications, ever since we proved to the world that Spain was a third rate power. The question haa two point* of interest. First as concerns the future of United States relations with 'Asiatic powers, second, as concerns the importation of the product* of the Philippines which vie with American grown products in the local markets. The Philippines have been a far Hung outpost of the tLf/^ „ * f ^ Potable to keep. Some folks say tbey are a protection against the Japanese.
