Algona Paper Puts Stitz Way in Wrong Pew The Advance had quite a good story last week of the change of political faith experienced by Stitz Way, for many years Wesley banker and politician. It seems that Stitz, who was a progressive republican up until recently, has now come out for President Roosevelt in his paper at Watertown, South Dakota, where he has been located since leaving here twenty-five years ago. The trouble with the Advance story was that they located Watertown in North Dakota, and seemed to think that Stltz's location in the same state with Lemke perhaps had something to do with his political change. Senator Norbcck of South Dakota was also mentioned as being from North Dakota, when as a matter of fact he has been a power in South Dakota and served as United States senator for several terms Except for the fact that the whole scene wa« laid in the wrong »t»te the story wa« very interesting.
