O. D. Brundage was elected president, Vaughn Rising was named secretary, and Phil Hemphill was elected secretary of the organization. Mart Weaevr was present and as a member of the park board, assured the league that lights would be Installed at the athletic field adequate to make the jflaying of night kitenball possible. Teams represented were the Hub Clothiers, Sinclair Oil, Skclly Oil, Al- sona Upper Des Moines and RCA-Vlc- tor. Bob Williams represnted the Hub. Leo Dahlhauser the Sinclair team, Ernie Godfredson the Skelly Oils and Ed Holewk the RCA team. Ib was decided that the league would Appoint an official scorekeeper this season, and a playing schedule was to be drawn up some time soon, perhaps this week. No great changes in the rules from last season were made, except that a roster of team members was to be presented to the league before the start of the playing season, and poaching of lilaycrs by one team from another was to bo taboo. Games are also to start promptly on schedule time, and the league president nnd directors arc to have supreme power in case of disputes. With th-s lights assured, the prospects for the sea«>n arc bright, and n live league with hot competition and larger crowds can be expected.

D. MT.-K. estnnits cz youi next job of printing. Huick's 1934 reception strikingly resembles the insistent demand of un audience fur an encore from a favorite star. Led by an army of Buick owners, all the public is fur surpassing previous enthusiasm for Uuick. Everywhere, the talk about Buick is turning into a flood of buying. When you come to take your first ride in a Buick, you will find—in whichever type and size you prefer to buy—stunning new beauty and luxury. There is also new engineering progress ... a broader incorporation of fine perfonn- BoJj by fiiter ancc, thorough-going dependability and safety... greater ease and convenience. These desirable advantages are expressed in the new Knee-Action gliding ride as only Buick gives it, in automatic starting and other new features, in finer smoothness and quiet, with greater power. Buick builds this year's cars in the size you want to buy—119-, 128-, and 136-inch wheelbusc. AU have the same high excellence, the same flashing performance, the same famous dependability, the same advanced features. m u i c ic **• Algona Motor Sales BASEBALL LEAGUE PLAN ABANDONED Only Four Cities Willing to Enter Class "D" League At a meeting held here Sunday, with representatives of four cities present plans for the formation of an Iowa- Minnesota baseball league to play in class "D" organized baseball were de- flntely dropped.
