Academy Team To Tackle Charles City In Opener; H.S. Beats Livermore, 14-0 Nordstrum Combines Vets and Newcomers into Strong Lineup Coach Art tfordstrum's St. Cecelia academy football team draw the spot- ligrlt of attention this week. The academy igrldders face Charles City academy on the local athletic field, on Sunday aft-crnoon, in their first contest of the faU schedule. The starting lineup f«r SuhoVy's game, as announced Monday by the coach, is as follows: Barry, center; Selzer and Butler, guards; Slepman and Patterson, tackles; Delm and Streit, ends; Baker quarterback; Bode and Van Allen, halfbacks; Llchter, fullback. Siepman, Patterson, Deim, Baker and Bode are the veterans. The remainder of the team will be starting their first game as regulars. Although some of them, are young, they present a pretty hefty appearance, with Barry, 180 pound center, (heading the list. The line will average about 155 pounds and the backfleld will be lighter. What Charles City will bring over here ts something of an unknown quantity. Last year the locals defeated Charles City, But the latter had a young team, and probably all are veterans this year. Coach Nordstrum has Thissen and Frank! as «wo reserve linemen, and Halg in the backfleld, but Is not overly supplied with good reserves, although the boys are willing, but young and light. Bruns and Schmidt Lead Attack; Team Displays Plenty of Fire PRO F001BALL _ TEAM TO OPEN SEASON SUNDAY H. W. Miller Speaks H. W. Miller, local attorney, delivered an address to the high school ctu- dents at an assembly, last Thursday morning, on the subject of the Constitution of the United States.

Housing Act Offers Good Way To Build, Repair The National Housing Act, which is now getting under way in Iowa, is a plan sponsored by the federal government. Neglect because of flnan* cial conditions in the past few years is causing a great depreciation in the value of such property. Many improvements that would add to the value and usefulness have not been made. Several Algona business firms In display ads this week call attention to this unusual opportunity for all. Under the National Housing plan the local bank or building and loan association acts as the financial agent, without supervision or "red tape." The bank uses its own money and the federal government backs the loans with an insurance plan which Is a protection from loss and makes the loans liquid assets in the bank's financial standing. Any property owner Is eligible for a loan, even though the property is mortgaged. Interest and taxes must of course be paid. Repairs and improvements include anything which is considered a part of the real estate and not, removable with sale of the property. Loans can be secured on homes, farm buildings and business property in amounts from «100 to $2,000 for any period up to three years The requirements are that the borrower must have an income equal to five times the amount of the annual payments of the loan. The principal payments must be large enough to re- lire the loan in tliree years. The loaning agency must be assured of a satisfactory credit steading. The loans are to be paid lu equal monthly installments. Full payment uf the loan may be made at any time, and if the borrowtr wishes to pay an extra iuslajlment at any lime, he may Iu the cose of farmers, whose income it> seasonal, seasonal payuieiiu may U.- arranged. Behind the smashing leadership of Bruns, brilliant fullback, the Algona high Bulldogs displayed plenty of power—and more Important—a stolid determination to win In tfhelr first game of the local football season, last Friday night, and overpowered Livermore, 14 to 0. The contest was one of grit. Algona clearly outplayed Livermore, although he visitors put up a real, stiff contest and were never subdued. The Bulldogs crashed down the field seven times n an effort to score, but were only successful twice. Bruns scored both touchdowns. In the third quarter, he went over, and Schmidt added the extra point on a Ine buck. In the final quarter, Bruns nade a seven yard dash to tally again and Schmidt again added the point. And Schmidt, by the way, Impressed onlookers as one of the finds of the year. Although only a freshman o. < he Meroer squad, he Is powerful, and has plenty of drive. Onlookers were unanimous in their views that the present team Is considerably better than last season's squad. But despite the victory over Livermore, the Bulldogs will have a long way to go to prepare for th-elr next contest, with Estherville here on the evening of October 5. Estherville has a veteran team, and one of the strongest teams In the northern part of the state last fall. The Livermore contest showed that Atoms (has porter to the T1ie»ed and Black from scrimmage to 110 for Livermore, and the line displayed some excellent charging and drive. If the boys keep plugging, home fans can expect some real contests. A crowd of about 900 turned out for the first game, and everyone was well pleased. 500 METHODIST DELEGATES HERE FOR CONFERENCE Session Opened Yesterday; Lively Program For The Week DIGNITARIES OF CHUECH ARRIVE The fcixty-thlrd annual session of the Northwest Iowa conference of the Methodist, Episcopal church began yesterday, with a report from the board of temperance, prohibition and public morals.

Mrs. 8. H. McNutt of Algona, who was born In March, is only t/hc montlis between March and September older.

Mayor Specht Says Parking Revision Necessary Due to Violations The regular monthly meeting of th Algona city council will be held this evening in the city hall, and as a re suit of conversation entered Into wlfh various business men and citizens o; Algonn, we wi=h to publicly call to the attention of the council, three matter, of civic Importance which setm to necc some dl.scus.slon. and j>ossibly Improvement. The points arc: 1—A city ffarbaffe collection system 2—Marking* for streets, and pos- Hibly hbuse numbers. 3—Sony, revision of the existing traffic situation. Mayor C. F. Specht stated Tuesday that same thought had already beei given to the downtown parking prob lein. and plans were being worked ou to regulate outer lane parking. The present plan is to allow motorists ant trucks to park in the second lane to unload or load passengers, but of latt this rule has been violated to such ai extent that the police ore unable tt cope with the hundreds of doubk parked cars, other machines parked UK inst the curb are hemmed In, and traf lie through the parked cars Is cm U u single lane on occasions. He Intl niau-d that the matter would rx- takei up I his evening.

Private in dividual^ are collecting garbage ii some case-s, but in the majority of in stances, eacli home du>u.).ies o( its owl in UK beit possible way.

It could hardly have been more dramatic than he sudden deluge of corn-hog allott- ment checks which poured Into Kos- uih county this week. A total of 3.825 dliecks had been received up until yesterday, with a gross alue of $519,748.15. Kossuth. county received more corn-hog checks than any other county In the United States. Ernest Gilbert Pint Ernest Gilbert of Plum Creek township received the first Kossuth check, Saturday morning, as distribution began from the old Kossuth County 8av- ngs Bank, under the direction of the county allottment committee. Pour windows were In constant use, Saturday, Monday and Tuesday. Distribution of dhecks the remainder of this week will be made on the following schedule: Thursday, Bancroft; Friday, Lakota; Saturday, Titonka. Checks were attributed jrerterdaQr M 8we* City. The county committee stated that next Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday, checks for those- who had received notices, but had not as yet obtained them, would be available at the Kossuth trank building there. To Total Over Million The first payment In this county will total $650,000 in all, with the entire corn-hog program to bring the county $1,430,000 for the year. Checks were received here In flvc shipments, and as received, notices were mailed out to farmers telling them where to call for them. The final batch received this week came In Monday morning, totall- ing 510 more, bringing the grand total to 3.825.

Two hundred and thirty checks were distributed Saturday, 840 on Monday and 600 on Tuesday from the old KossutilK Bank building. Need More Fodder- Stover Applications There Is still plenty of room for applications to sell corn fcxlckr and corn stover to tile government for relief purpose:, Farm Bureau officials said here Tuesday. Only 358 tons of fodder and 115 tons of stover have been signed up for thug far, and Kossuth's alluttment Is 15,000 tons. Applicants in some cases have Inquired If telling this fodd-tr-stover meant that they would be required to comply with another corn-hog agreement. The answer Is that the fodder otter is In no way connected with the corn-hog.plan, and is merely for the purpose of providing feed for cattle in drouth areas, and to give farmers with plenty of feed a chance to sell rougher ft.d tiiut they do riot need.
