Burt Is Host on Saturday to Four County Ball Teams Hurt will stage an invitational baseball tournament Saturday with fou of the best teams in the county vying for the trophy. The first gam: will see Lone Rock arid Swea City tangle, and at ten o'clock Burt will meet Grant consolidated. Interest in the contest will be unusually high as Swea City and Grant consolidated have split their games, each winning one and Burt and Grant consolidated have split their games. Grant consolidated boasts the strongest team, in years and is a veteran aggregation having lost but one regular frain last year's team. Gi-ant has played somewhat erratic ball this fall but that is partly due to the heavy schedule. Sw«a City has one of the best infields in the county and one or the best defensive teams. They have dropped but two games and those to Burt and Grant. In. a game with Burt they were credited with 17 assists in the regular seven inning contest. They have two capable hurlers in Schuler and CaiT and both turned in some nice hurling this fall. No action on a charge of manslaughter hod been started In Hancock county it was stated by County Attorney Beaumont of Hancock county late Wednesday afternoon. Rumors to that effect had been prevalent here since the accident. Three men and two women were badly injured, one of them fatally, when the car in which they were riding failed to make a turn about two and a half miles east of Wesley, southwest of the Tom Forburger lane, and after striking a mail box turned over twice. The accident occurred about 8:30 p. m. Sunday. In the car at the time were Ethel Hunsley, Britt owner of the car, Ann Dorman, Hayfield, Lawrence Mason Algona, who was driving and Tom Sailor and a man named Elller of Britt. Knocked Unconscious Miss Dorman, age 27, was thrown about 20 feet or more int* a -nearby field, and was knocked unrjonidouB She was rushed to the Kossuth hospital in an ambulance and waa found to have concussion of the brain. She died Monday from the skull fracture Mason received » broken abouldtt were cat and bruised. The «*r. a new Plymouth, was badly wrecked and was towed to Britt after the accident. Causes of Accident Although all details of the acciden do not seem clear, It was reported tha bright lights of an approaching car and a flat tire at the same time caused the Bccident. Other motorists rushed to the assistance of the _ accident victims, and amid a scene of blood and confusion helped them from the wreck and sum' moned medical aid from Wesley. Kossuth and Hancock county offic lals were also notified and invest! gated the case. The party had been organized in Britt, according to the story, and with four in the car had gone to Hayflelc for the fifth member. They were on their way to Algona when the traged occurred.

A certain business man wore a perpetual, cherubic smile of satisfaction on his face Monday and Tuesday because he was money, in two figures, to the good, and one high school hot- cha, who had been given A penalty of seven nights "In" for one reason or another, has one night "out" chalked up. And all this is the result of their faith In the Cards in the world series games between the Cards and Tigers. Bets flew thick and fast during the seven days and a majority of the business places In Algona had at least one and sometimes two or three pools, wJilch added to the Interest of the already exciting games. The morals of the above paragraph are unlimited In number but they are left to you, dear readers, to figure out. You see, we had faith, too,—the right kind.

Clayton. The usual course following past droughts has been to expand corn and other grain production because of high grain prices. This undoubtedly would occur next year without any control program. But with livestock numbers reduced, the demand for corn cculd not utilize the probable surplus supplies and corn prices would drop. With low prices for corn farmers would, as in the past, increase hog and other livestock production. Tills stage would be reached in 1936. Thy? expansion of livestock production as demonstrated during the past decade, would retul(. in another collapse of markets and ruinously low prices to producers, Mr. Bonnst.tter said. If a production control program for 1935 i.s adopted by fanners the allot- munts may call for som« increase in corn acreage and hog numbers over 1935. With normal yields the proposed acreage wculd help replace corn storage stocks. But, the program would avoid returning to the surplus production of the 1932-33 ba^e period with its attendant low prices. Farmers Advance Points Those who attemded the meet ings coru-ider the actUn of Kossuth county very favorable. Tabulated results of this are above the average of tha state.
