Grays Crush 3 Rivals In Week; Tackle Forest City Beat Charles CSty, Iowa Falls and Lake Park MAYPLAY D MOINES WESTERN LEAGUE The Algona Grays started out their third triumphant week by poling out a close decision over the Charles City Lions, Wednesday night 5 to 4. Charles City started off the scoring in the third inning as three men crossed the plate with the aid of a brace of singles a walk and an error. The Grays managed to squeeze in one in the third and another in the fourth on a few well timed base knocks but still trailed going into the fifth. Scrubby Anderson was the first man up in the Gray half of the inning and he proceeded to tie up the score by lifting a beautiful high one over the right field fence. Menke, next man up got a walk, whereupon Leonard walloped out a Texas league double to bring in the winning run. Scrubby knocked out a single in the next inning to score Corrick who had also walked. The Lions brought another run across the plate in their half of the seventh. Grays 5 Ab H R Lions 4 Ab H R that turned out to be a home run and when the dust of the inning had cleared Algona had five runs in the score book. They let down again in the third to come back with five more in the fourth getting a goose egg in the fifth and four more tallies in the sixth. Lefty Atwell redeemed himself a little for the bad start by fanning thirteen of the Cardinal batters. Sunday afternoon the Grays shut out Lake Park, 4 to 0, with Lichliter on the mound, giving only two hits. Wander hit a home run, triple and a double. Big Oame Wednesday The big game of the week promises to t.e the Wednesday night tussle with the Forest Ci t,^CoUeg- ians. The Grays have taken three out of five games by very decisive scores and lost the other two by the slim margin of one run, so the Grays will be out to prove themselves the better team. The fame of the Grays has become quite widespread and tt is rumored that they have proven themselves good enough to rate a game with the Des Moines Demons at the home park some time this month. They may also play^another game with the House of David team which Is really the only outfit to hand Algona a real thumping The locals have now won 25 out of their 30 games thlp season. Anderson 5 A.

The first inning started out to look as though the Grays had at last met their Waterloo after taking the leventh consecutive game from ake View in the afternoon. The Cardinals hopped on Lefty Atwell for three straight hits In the In- tlal frame and brought three men icross the plate while the Algona ratters went down in order.

Thorington, Algona [Bancroft Register.] Perhaps the greatest motive orce behind the movement for old ge pensions has been the depression. Many persons now In the aged class saw their life's savings dissipated in the deflation of 192021, and when the depression of 1929 came ,on they were not in position to meet it. But while this may have been the prime reason for the rapid development of the pension idea, there was another reason which has occurred to few readers, and that was the enormous growth in the number of people who now live to reach the age commonly accepted as the pension age. In the last generation or two medicine and surgery have made far greater advances than most people realize. Even doctors who do not stop to think fail to understand it fully. Thus, while only 35 years ago the number of people in !he United States 65 or more years old was only some 3,100,000, the number today is 7,500,000, and it is estimated that In another 35 years the figure will again be doubled. M. A. Linton, president of the Provident Life Insurance Co., of Philadelphia, ban studied past, current, and probable future trends in this direction, and his conclusion is that whereas today the number of people in the United States 65 or older represents six per cent of the population the percentage will have risen to ten by 1971. That so many more people than jrmerly can now live to a ripe old age, and that the percentage will •ise for the generation now in its • rime, will doubtless strike all readers as a happy state of af- 'alrs; yet it brings difficult prob- CTOH, as Is evidenced by this old age pension movement, which nnwt necessarily operate to sap the arnings of the younger generation o support a large non-productive luwnt in the population. Wheth- r HIP younger generation can carry the added burden remains to he seen. The most vicious of the problems wrought about by the growth of the iced in numbers Is the certainty hat a new political bloc will swing into action. Indeed, the be- inrnnf.'* have already been made, 'or the Towusend Plan is already n politics. Past 'ind present experience with nther pension blocs bhows what will happen as the percent- ate nt tht. axed In the voting population Kiowii. We know too well how a minority of organized voters Watermelon Day - Wednesday can force congressmen into line. To a pessimist the prospects seem to forecast a future time when half of the people will, as pension- ens, live on the other half. • Replacement—What s Joke! Logan Observer—When you get to thinking about taxes don't overlook the taxes you pay for your every day supplies. If you happen to buy $100 worth you will be expected to pay two dollars tax, just because the state needs the money for "replacement" of some other tax. but the other taxes are just as high or higher than ever before. Somebody has been fooled about this replacement business. Swea City, July 8—Funeral services for Olof Axel Bergstrom, 71, who died at the state hospital, Iowa City, last week Wednesday, were held at the Baptist church here Friday afternoon, with the Rev. Mr. Culbertson, of the Full Gospel Mission, in charge. Burial was made in Swea township cemetery.
