SMALL BOY IS RIVER'S VICTIM LAST SATURDAY First Legal Liquor For Sale in 20 Years Here .. chine reached the east end of a bridge, about two and one half miles west of Algona. John was driving. Exactly what happened is not clear. As is the case in most accidents, the crash occurred suddenly. A survey of the road at the point of the mishap, however, snowed that at the east end of the bridge, on the south side of the road, where Balgeman was driving, a piece of the road at the corner of the bridge, extending into the road about two feet or more, had been washed away or broken down, leaving a big bole. Had Balgeman been driving close to the rail, as was necessary, because of the narrowness of the bridge, one of the wheels on the right side of his car may have dropped into this cavity. Craco: Two tractor* were dispatched from Ui« Koarath Imple- £ent Co., to the Will Batt farm. Monday, driven by H. U and Carroll Potter, and with other nefch- bors aadstlnr, Including E. C Potter, A E. Clayton, AUfurt Ben**", Oeorf e BrueUroan, Harold Brandow. and D. A. Teeter, plowed 60 acre* of corn, a. help to the Batt family. following the fatal injury of one •on and the serious Injury of another Uat week. Neither car left the road, but a door from the Batt machine was torn off and thrown into the Balgeman machine and it was this which dealt the Whittemore young man the fatal blow. He died instantly. John Batt passed away 20 minutes after the accident en- route to the hospital. Cars Badly Smashed Both cars were badly smashed up. The Batt car was thrown around so that the rear end of the machne was resting up on the bridge, lidded back toward Algona. Neither car left the road, however. A drop of about eight feet is on either side of the highway at this point. Verne Batt was thrown about 25 feet, and after recovering from the unexpected shock, he hurried to the Lehman farm, nearby, where he phoned for help and was aided by the Lehman family , John Batt is survived by his parents. Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Batt, Verne and two other brothers, William of Titonka and George of Algona. and six MS- ters, Edna, Helen, Dorothy and Doris, all at home, and Mis. Dwight Potter of Ear Corn Worm Traces Found In Local Fields Some fear was expressed in this vicinity this week, that the ear com worm was doing serious damage to the rapidly growing corn in this section. Reports from several sections state that the ear corn worm has been found infesting many stalks. The worm bores into the stalk and then works up to the tassel and cuts the stalk and the tassel off. In the southern part of the sta'te this worm has been a real menace, damaging whole fields of corn. However, with corn prospects ahead of that old saying, "Knee high by the Fourth ol July," it is felt that the worm will not provide this section with anything comparable to the chinch - • -— "lowa.

P. in County Adopts Resolutions Flaying Governmental Expense DELEGATES TO STATE CONVENTION NAMED No great commotion ushered In the opening of the state liquor store in Algona—the first store which has legally disposed of liquor to the genera public without a prescription in Algona for the past 20 years, last Monday morning. On the contrary, only 50 applications for permits were received on the open ing day, and the total by Tuesday ev ening—with the Fourth of July jus around the corner—had not reachec the 200 mark, Tom Sherman, loca store manager, stated. Purchase* Small No soft-spoken meeting, was the republican county convention. Saturday morning. The prelimjnnry work of organization was rapidly taken cnre of. with O. D. Shumway being elect- ' ert couiyty chairman, J. M. Blanchard of Lone Rock as vice chairman and Mrs. Carl Ebcrt of Whittemore as committeewoman. Mart Weaver acted as secretary. And then, after selecting delegates to the state republican convention, the state judicial convention and district judicial convention, after naming Fred Vogel of Burt as senatorial committeeman, R. J. Harrington of Algona as Judicial committtceman and G. W. Stillman of Algona as congressional committeeman, a resolution Haying the state and national administration was adopted. "Borrowng Wa 1 ?

M. P. Christiansen, better known as "Mad. 1 ;." manager of the local creamery, was named president, nntl Charles B. Thatcher, of West Bend, was named vice president. Fifty-nine north Iowa communities were represented. were -•Vat t»e moat part, theimrchaw made in small quantities, indicative that no great orgies were being planned, and in all ways the local store's business was being handled in as orderly a manner and with as much restraint as Is exercised in any other place of general business. Due to the late arrival of the truckloads of liquor, all of the merchandise could not be placed on shelves, but as the chief call seemed to be for whiskey and gin, and there was no inclination to purchase fancier drlr.ks. the local clerks experienced no delay- In filling orders. Prices Called Reasonable Prices on state-sold liquor, according to general opinion, are fairly reasonable, with prices ranging from under one dollar to the vicinity of five dollars, depending on the quality, blend and quantity. Gin, which seemed to b3 a best seller, on the opening days. Is evidently popular because it is a lighter drink than whiskey and brandy, and somewhat lower In price. The rrew store, according to Mr. Sherman, is not endeavoring to acquire customers. It has been established by the state as a service to persons who desire to buy liquor, and as a means of combating the illicit sale of liquor. And >to quote the words of a contemporary philosopher, "It is not a question of whether or not you drink, but how you drink, that marks you." County Corn-Hog Sign-up Under Way The official corn-hog signup, the last one before the general payment of allotment funds was under way this week in Kossuth.

City to Experiment on Resurfacing The block on State street between the Kent Motor and Swift buildings will be resurfaced by the city for the purpose of determining the cost of the work, and to gain an Idea as to the practicality of resurfacing all of State street. The block in question is especially rough and bumpy, and for that reason was selected for the trial. As a matter of. fact, none of State street Is especially smooth, but the matter of expense has kept the council and mayor from determining to do the whole stre-H over. Work wiir start shortly. A special session was held Tuesday evening of this week, by the council to determine what shall be done about ft new cooling system for the dlesel engines in the power plant, as the old one is beginning to feel its years. $200,000 Aid For No. 169 Still Coming A delegation of business men from Humboldt who recently returned from an interview with state officials at Des Moines, have reported that assurance was given them that the sum of $200.000 will be used in Improvement on highway 169, north and south from Humboldt.

But whether it i» called social management, economic planning, socialism or bolshevlsm it all leads in the same direction.
