ThsfMan About Town Says Last spring Rudy Onderian placed three gold fish in the artificial pond in his yard. A few days ago lie broke the thin ice to gather in the fish for their winter sojourn In the basement More than five hundred of the finney tribe greeted him. Offspring of the original three. Now Rudy Is looking for homes for them as he Is unable to care for so many. * * * Entering the town of Rutland the motorist Is greeted with a once useful but antiquated sign calling attention to the speed limit and also the words, "Close Your Cutout." • • r Bob Braun of the Algona bakery drives a model T Ford during the week and sort of keeps to the back streets. But on Saturday nights it Is different. Right out In the center of attraction he rides, in a modern Chevrolet, spotlighted, a liver- led chauffeur and all the glory of a Cinderella. Envied by his coworkers for the night, the glamour soon fades and Bob is back at the job as usual in the morning.

The family had been quarantined and whether or not the party knew of this Is not known Working In the barn one of the boys heard a shot so near that It attracted his attention! Coming around the corner of the barn he was hi time to see a man grab a chicken which he had shot near the hen house and run for n waiting inr. So fast were the intruders nothing of recognition wnp obtainable. Saturday was a lucky day and an unlucky day for Theo. Larson. The chr was parked In the home garage, an unlucky place. Lucky for Ted he or members of his family, were not in the car. Boys with rifles, not knowing the course of their shots, were responsible for the bullets which penetrated the side of the garage and damaged the door nnd window of the car. A new door has been ordered so extensive was the bombardment Good boys who meant no harm have learned to think before they proceed as a result of this lesson. * • « Algona nnd surrounding arra Is living up to its reputation as a show going populace. Wednesday night both theatres were tilled to the rafters. An estimated attendance of 1300 Inside for the first show. And at each place hundreds more were waiting In line when time for the second show came around.

Suntey day 4 tiw, «-'- fir* rTiHE New Ford V-8 for 1937 is the 1 most beautiful Ford car ever offered. It ia built in only one siee— one standard of roomy comfort and modern appearance. But you may have either the improved SB-horsepower V-8 engine for maximum performance—or the new oO-horsepower V-8 engine for maximum economy. The smaller engine makes possible a lighter car — lower operating coats — and a lower price. When you drive the 1937 Ford with the 85-horsepower V-8 engine, you •re master of a power plant that gives everything you can possibly demand in speed and acceleration. Today, improved carburetion enables it to deliver its thrilling performance with unusually low gasoline consumption. The new 60-horsepower V-type 8- cylinder engine delivers V-8 smoothness and quietness—even at speeds up to 70 miles an hour—with gasoline mileage so high that it creates an entirely new standard of economy in modern motor car operation. We invite you to see this new Ford car, and arrange to drive one equipped with the engine that fits your needs. 480 BASE $ PRICES At Dearborn Plant Taxes, Delivery and Handling, Rtuipen, Spar* Tire and Accessories AND UP Body types available wilh 60 or 85 horsepower engine (without de line equipment) : Tudor Sedan, Tudor Touring Sedan, Fordor Sedan, Fordor Touring Sedan, Five-window Coupe . . .
