With one of the best automobile years probably In history about finished, automobile men are now preparing for the new 1937 models, which will appear on the market sometime within the next two or three months, sooner in some cases, perhaps. The new lines are not expected to differ radically from present vehicles, although some changes Ir. body designs will be made as usual. The tow priced car field has been broadened in the past year, so that several manufacturers of higher priced car* are entering machines to compete with the trio of cars that nave dominated the low-price field, and many other models have been reduced in price so that they too can reach the mass public buying which bring* volume production and lower unit cost as a re- salt. Algona Clergy Youngest Average Age in the State To refute the point that the ministry and priesthood might be peopled chiefly by elderly men, Algona has probably the youngest average age for members of the clergy in the state of Iowa. Rev. Robert M. Schwyhart, new pastor at the Baptist church, who is 29 years old, gives this community four pastors and one priest, with an average age of about 30 ye'ars, a most unusual record. In addition to the pastors and priest listed below, with their ages, Algona's pulpits are also occupied by Dr. J. H. Edge of the Methodist church, Rev. P. J. Braner of the German Lutheran church, and Father Davern of the Catholic church, none of whom are "elderly" men, by any means, and as peppy as their younger contemporaries.

EVANS, Kosauth coroner, revealed in court testimony last Wednesday, that he was fired upon by Ralph Carrol) last July, as he was leaving the Carroll home in Seneca after serving papers on tho family. He said he had not mentioned the matter before because he was afraid he might alarm his wife. The shot pierced cores in tho Evans' automobile but did not injure him otherwise, although it broke the windshield. The teit- imony came out because attorneys for the elder Mrs. Carroll, who owned the farm, had filed action against Dr. Evans for contempt if court in that he had failed to file return of service of the writ. Mrs. Carroll, Sr, is asking $2,400 damages from the son, Sheriff Carl Dahlhauser, and his bonding company, alleging damages were due because her son was not removed from the farm a year and a half ago, when ordered to by the court. Judge DeLAnd ruled that service had not been sufficient. • • • JOHN DREESMAN, local produce dealer, U building a 60-foot extension at the rear of the building he recently purchased just east of the Champlin gas station on State street, and which property he recently purchased.

Puerstenau, formerly n freacher In Lotts Creek, now retired, left last Thursday night for Watcrtown, VVis., where he spends the winters with relatives. He has been in Algona visiting during the past several months. Before leaving, the genial, retired pastor, dropped in and renewed his subscription to The Algona Upper Des Moines, and expressed opinions on several of the problems of the day. He was especially disappointed to hear so much swearing on the city streets, and although liberal-minded in his viewpoints toward liquor, could not understand the fact that several people consistently make it a habit to appear on the streets under tho influence of liquor, without any official action being taken. We have enjoyed conversing on occasion with Rev. Fuerstenau, and trust that we shrill again Swea City Building Boom Is Welcomed Swea City, too, is going to experience something of a business boom, acording to n story in last Friday's Swea City Herald.
