We Deny the Allegation and Defy the Alligator Bancroft Register: The Register editor stayed quietly at home until the evening of the Fourth and then spent the balance of the even- big checking up on the the beantl- fm females that came from all parts of the county to attend the entertainment at the county fair grounds at Algona. Long before the sun went down they commenced to file Into the grandstands with their swains and fond htnbands and after watching them closely and most intently for two or three hours we decided that by far and forge the cieater number of beautiful damsels came from the north part of th«> county. Of course some of the south end laarie would do in a pinch but they could not hold a candle to the bemnUftd "gal" from up north. For symmetry, beautiful features, complexion and Just plain "it" there seemed to be nothing In the entire county that could compare with the fine Buses, young, married and grandmaids, of those that came from the dividing line that separates the north endera from the plainer and more common couth en- de«. We doubt if there were many that spent such an enjoyable Fourth M did the writer.

DICKINSON READY FOR BATTLE A Bitter Opponent of New Deal and All of Its Ramifications Would Make Roosevelt Policies the Issue in State Election This Fall Des Molnes Register: The new deal of the Roosevelt administration is the real Issue in the coming political campaign and Iowa Republicans should make this the Issue In th? state campaign, in the opinion of Senator L. J. Dickinson, who arrived in Des Moines Thursday for a stay of a few days. Senator Dickinson recently arrived in Iowa from Washington, D. C., and has been at his home in Algona- He will return there soon but plans to return to Des Molnes for the state Republican convention later this month, he said Thursday. "Will Not Be Content" "I am of the opinion that the Republicans of Iowa will not be content with acceptance of local and state issues in the forthcoming campaign," Senator Dickinson said. "The only course to pursue is one of a vigorous attack on the new deal in all Its ramifications and all its activities. Attack Outlined "Certainly the Republicans of th.-- .'tnte should include In this opposition to the new deal a denunciation of the AAA and the general farm program, the NRA, the needless expenditure of the CWA and the FERA and the monetary policies of the Roosevelt administration und all the things that have tended to increase ihe obligations that must be paid off in the future."

Doesn't Think Younq Folks Learned to Drink During the Dry Reqime ••TlK Editor of the Upper Des Monies Dear S.r: Thank you for printing my letter in last wtt-k's issue of the Upper !><..•> Monies. Voor candid opinion on the alcohol question is respected by both those who agree ftnd dis- agi\e with you. -But Mr. Editor, when you make the broad -tateniciit that educators and uiutlatuis i.ave U',K- ce,-JiUo:. wiUh youUi. and are in ign-rauce of what is actual!'.' occumng, >uu ale not ac- tiuamud vuiii the- work ul these pro- ICS--IDII.'

"When those agencies which I mentioned in my letter of June 18th re- i>-iiied'v unproved the outlawry of the liquor traffic, it seems pit-sumptuous to set aside their approvals as being ip- nc-rantly formed. The^e agencies never said that all young people were not drinking, but they did affirm tha: there was improvement during prohibition, and that outlawry was the bt-M me-thod of dealing with the alcohol problem.

Byron Smith Hurt By Runaway Car Byron Smith, son of Mr. and Mrs. G. Ray Smith, lv»d a close call Saturday when he wa.s run over by Andy Yoenian's car. Byron was filing his football with air at oiv of the oil i-tations. H- was crouched down over the ball and did not notice the Yce- man car as it started down the grade from where it had been narked, without a driver.

A. McDonald and will be publidy and officially opened at 9 o'clock a. m. on July 23. Persons having sites which they are willing to sell or donate to the United States for the purpose may secure blanks from the postmaster to file before that time. According to the government specifications the approximate dimensions of the site are to be as follows: corner lots, 80 foot frontage, 140 foot depth; or for intereior lots, 100 foot frontage, 140 foot depth. Some variation will be considered. There Is some talk about a half dozen or more sites at the present time, but the two most favored seem to be the Galbralth lots on North Dodge and Call streets, where the horseshoe court is now located, and the National Druggist Mutual lots on South Thorlngton and Nebraska streets. The Galbraith lots are not quite large enough but the Heise lot which is next to it is'vacant and could undoubtedly be obtained The Bite Is probably the most centrally located to the business district of any under discussion. Dehnert Hotel Mentioned Other sites which have been mentioned are the Joe Wadsworth property on Call and North Thorlngton and the Dehnert hotel property which Is across the street west from it. Another talked of location is the Joe Greenberg property on the north- cast corner of Dodge and Call streets where Mr. Greenberg has his business. The Heinsohn property, which is the old Normal building on the come south of the Akre store, has also been under discussion, but seems to be toe small with little chance of securin adjoining property of sufficient size. Perhaps the most unlkely location receiving any discussion Is the George Galbraith house site on East State, as the property is rather far removec from th e business section. The C. E Walker property across from the National Druggist Mutual lots hns been casually -suggested. The Godden Monument lots together with adjoining property owned by R. H. Miller of Pasadena, are possible interior lots which would perhaps b suitable. Points for Consideration Points to be considered in the selection of the site will be the points to which mail has to be taken to trains, the cent/r of the city carriers' dIUrict. the center of populaton and the center of the business district. Concen- sus of opinion at the time the new- high school was built put the center of the population of the town about n the Swift & Co. block and the carriers' center would be approximately the same, while uhe center of Uie district see-ins to be about .IK- middle of the north side of the block of State street between Moore ind Dodge streets.
