MANY HOT CONTESTS IN COUNTY POUTICS Two Await Torture Case Sentence; Thilges to Trial Schumacher Still Resting in Jail Here Pending Hancock Action ANDERS, THORSLAND TO PLEAD QUILTY The wheels of justice (move with chie caution; they were doing that this •week M Hstel Anders, Rutland, Ole Thorsland, Bode, and Joe Thilges Whlttemore, were being held In the county jail at Emmeteburg, and George Schumacher of Irvlngton was awaiting •developments In the Kossuth county jai] as the result of a cleanup of suspects believed by authorities to be implicated in a majority of the farm robbery cases in north Iowa which have arisen in the past few years. Anders and Thorsland, according to Maurice McMahon, county attorney axe ready to plead guilty to both the Nick Thilges and C. C. Robinson assault and robbery attempts. They have not been brought before district court, however, as the several counties interested are still working together to frame a Joint charge. Joe Thilges, from all reports, will go on trial In Hancock county to face a charge of robbery with aggravation. Authorities claim he helped to rob the O. J. Eiseman family of Woden of $7,000. Thilges also faces indictment as an accessory in the Robinson case. Indeterminate sentences of up to 25 years In prison face the men, should they enter pleas of guilty to the robbery with aggravation charge, or be found guilty should a trial be necessary. Leo Besch, now serving a sentence In prison, was to be brought back to offer testimony, McMahon also stated. Besch • Implicated to the •n at Emmetsburfr. confession of the Schumacher has mode no statement as yet, authorities report, although Sheriff Hanson of Hancock county ordered him held for the Woden robbery quiz. Titonka Great Ball Team Goes to Final in District Tourney Titonka: At the district baseball tournament held ut Mallard last, Thursday, Friday and Saturday the Kossuth county champions gave a very good account of themselves by beating Sanborn in their first game 6 to 5. The mxt morning the boys played Rossie and beat them 2 to 1, earning the right to play in the finals. In this game the boys ran up against a hard hitting team from Armstrong who took the boys' measure 5 to 2. This gave Armstrong the right to go to Des Moines to play in the meet held there.

Old Age Pensions Being Used As Racket by Gang Seeking Funds "Imposters, who are going over the state soliciting fees of ten cents and more from aged persons who contemplate making application for old age assistance payments, should be Immediately reported to the county attorney or to the office of the state commission," according to •Byron G. Alien, superintendent of the Iowa Old Age Assistance Commission in a statement issued to the press today. Word has come to the commission's office In Des Moines, that a man posing as an official has been soliciting ten centa, each, from elderly persons In various parts of Iowa, and that persons in Fre-: mont county have reported receiving circulars and solicitations by maU. In these cases the solicitor claims to have great influence with the county boards and state commission and claims he can assure favorable consideration for applications filed by the persons paying a fee. "Applications for old age assistance do not need to employ any person, firm or agency to represent them in order to secure a fair hearing on their application," says Mr. Allen. "As soon as the forms are ready for distribution the county old age assistance boards will be announced." Applications shall be made to the county boards and when passed upon are reviewed by the state commission. SECOND THEATRE IN ALGONA, PLAN OF NORMAN RICE Will Handle Overflow From Call, and Also Special Programs of Own Plans for a second moving picture theatre In Algona, to be called "The Junior", were announced this week by N. C. Rice, manager of the Call Theatre here. The new house, which will be located just adjacent to the present theatre, will have a seating capacity ol 800, he added.... .,.„. _ The decision to put In a new theatre was reached by Mr. Rice as a result of findings made by the theatre cotfe authorities. Th« Call Theatre has been charging a 35-oent admission on the main floor and a 25-cent admission for balcony scats. The new code will determine the distribution of pictures to exhibitors on the basis of their admission price. The result la that If the 35 and 25-cent prices were maintained, the Call would come under the average classification of a 30-cent theatre, and would be so listed, which would put It in a group where first run pictures could only be obtained after they had played in theatres of a higher price class,. Mr. Rice's Idea Is to eliminate :he balcony price when the new theatre s ready, but make the new house lower in price for most of its shows. Howver, he added, when big first release pictures are shown, the small theatre will run the same films as the Call and thus handle the overflow crowds. The entire plan assured Algona and Kossuth county getting th-e benefit of early release pictures, and also will provide a price range of show houses. The lobby of the new theatre will be ocated In the gift shop, and will have a Western Electric wide range sound equipment and a cooling system. The plans have been approved by the state abor commission and fire marshal, and the city council has issued a license to operate, construction will be started as soon as the theatre code is deflnite- y settled, so that Mr. Rice knows exactly what will be required of him. tiargreaves Files For Sheriff's Post A battle for the republican nomina- lon for sheriff in Kossuth county d?last week, when Gilbert Hargreaves filed for the office. W. H. Rick- efs is the other candidate. Carl Dahlhauser, incumbent, is unopposed for he nomination on the democratic ticket. Hargreaves is 35 years old, and has ivcd in Kossuth county since 1910. The family home is in Cresco town- hip. This is the first time he lias filed for pubic office. For the past hree years he has been assistant manager of the Farmers' Elevator at Ho- Banana* Skim Milk Diet in Local Homes The banana and skim milk diet has hit Algona t The last month or so we've been reading in the newspapers about the ladies In our capltol city and their success in this odd diet. Not to be outdone, the Algona women are taking it up, too. Bananas and skim milk only are eaten morning, noon and nifeht, morning, noon and night until the desired weight is reached—or until the thoughts of bananas and skim milk make one turn a sickly hue. "Tls reported on good authority that at least two such dieters were able to lose over a pound a day. There is no such phrase as "fashionably stout" in the year 1934. Controlled curves are the order of the day and the answer to this until some one thinks up another one is—bananas mid skim milk, bananas and skim milk and bananas and skim milk.

Members say that the membership I. composed almost fifty pev cent of fellows who have never before played golf, and the purpose Is not to attempt to run In competition with the Algona Country club, but merely to provide a plao? for beginners to play, with a minimum of expense. The layout for the new nine hole course Js considered as a good one for the club, and the name Is derlvpd from n brook which runs through the center of the course. There are also plenty of natural hazards on the course, which makes It more of n sporting proposition. The course is 2044 yards 'n distance with a par of 35. The long- ?st hole Is 470 yards In distance. in or managed yards at Emmetsburg, Livcrmore and Ottosen. At the latter place he was manager for four yrars.

He was born nt Gilmore City, moved to Decornh with his parents, graduated from the high school and business college there and then enlisted in the army. He was in Prance a year, serving with the 4Sth Railroad artillery, as corporal and mailer gunner. He has little to say about the war. although he did state that in the entire year in France he had very little idea where he was any of the time. The railway artillery would be forced to sleep all day, lying idle in some hiding place and then they would be shuttled back and forth across the country at night, drawn up Into position before dawn, given a range and told to fire so many shots. When they completed the order, Uiey were hastily pulled away from the front and the s,ime game of hide and seek started all over again. He also acted as a gunner for a brief period in a bombing plane. After (he war he worked on a farm near Rldgeway for several years, married, was In the tire business at Omaha for two years and the Prudential Life Insurano? Co. for four years, then returned to Iowa to continue farming. Trade Extension Days This Week a Shopper's Paradise Page of Friday Specials Knock Bottom Out of Regular Prices The Algona Trinity Lutheran church observed the 30th anniversary of its founding last Sunday. Rev. P. J. Braner, the present pastor of the congregation conducted two festival services. The history shows that the congregation was organized on May 4, 1904, by the Rev. M. Behrends who was then pastor of the Plum Creek congregation. Rev. Behrends lives at the present time at Long Beach, California. Of the five original members, August Huenhold Is the only charter member remaining. The congregation owns a ilce church property located on East Elan street. Today the congregation numbers 43 voting members and about 250 souls. It has grown up to a flourishing congregation, which enjoys an ight grade parish school, an English Sunday School with a staff of w-cll .rained teachers, a Ladies Aid, and a Young People's society. The services are well attended and mission work is carried on in both languages. The Messrs. Henry Wagener, Herman Boettcher and Will Dau arc the elders of the church. Ferdinad Radius is the eld- st member of the congregation, being 34 years old, and Marvin Hackbarth, who was born last week Thursday is the youngest member of the church. Easy on the City Water During Drought! City water is being used or wasted at the rate of about twice ordinary imes, according to Superintendent Joe Kelly. The water plant Is pumping 250,000 gallons daily as compared to 125,000 gallons a year ago. As the water is being pumped from d?en wells no one can tell just how long the wells will continue to produce the extraordinary amount of water that is being pumped to supply tile prest-nt demand. Most of the extra water is in all probability being used to water lawiis and gardens. But under the present dry conditions It behooves everyone to be saving with the water to prevent the exhaustion of the supply. Paving Coming Fast Paving was well along this week on highway 169, from the comer of State and Jones, east to Phillips street on State, and then south toward the fair grounds. The paving will be completed soon, but time will be necessary for it to set, and for building shoulders,, parking and other details before traffic can be routed over it. Three Fires First Part of Week Here A trio of fires, two in the early morning, kept the local department on the jump, Monday and Tuesday.

Both morning fires were about 7:30 o'clock. LuVerne Boy Is State Music Winner LuVerne: Richard Niver went to Iowa City last week and entered the state music contest.

One need not Jive in the township to buy the Item in that township, as found on a special pogo In this week's paper, but the items arc designated a-s township pedals for the purpose of showing the good will of the local firms toward all sections of the county.
