IT LL THEATRE DESTROYED BY FLAMES Loss Placed at $60, Whole Business Block Periled Fairy Tale Lesson ". Iconoclastic (that's a two-bit Rotary word for idol smashing) to the last degree, 'three 'Klwanlans broke down the child-life belief of Hctarians In such innocent verses as "Hickory Dickery Dock" and "Little Red Riding Hood" at a wild and hilarious meeting, Monday, of the Rotary club. The Kiwanian?, it seems, are not deluded by such childish piffle, and they amazed and startled the "wheel chair" Rotarlans with their worldly knowledge. ' Leading the assault on the citadel of secred fairy tales was William Steele, Jr. Mr. Steele waa introduced by Dr. C. C. Shlerh, Himself a mean twister of the tongue. Mr. Steele's subject was as .hard to understand aa the metal in his name. But to make a Joqg-*tory abort, he aaid this: When you read "Hickory Dickery 'Dock" next time, analyze it Hlckery, Mr. Steele pointed out, mean* a tree, and therefore a nut— hickory nuts— but Just plain •ntrte'for abort. Dickery means to lose ten, Mr. Steele says. So, In fact, Hickory Dickery therefore comes to mean In the Krwanls traaMBtton," Nut*, I Lost Ten"— evidently referring to a Krwan- lan'e night out. Joe* Bloom took up the subject from there, showing how Little R«d Riding Hood might have been very good, and then again might not have been so good. . The'Rotarians left the mess hall, their eyes still popping — but then, after sitting around in wheel chairs for all these years, 'tis now wonder they're so far behind in modern translations of ye olde nursery rhymes. Curs Scrap Iron From Not For War Lords Greenberg Says Ninety JPercentiJa Used by domestic Industry WAB JHAS ITS PURPOSE Scrap Iron, of which there have ibeen some 50 carloads shipped from Algona since Ja*t. October flrat. Is .day— but not MB indicated In a *er- .mon by a local minister here Bunday. At least tb*t is the opinion of .Joe Greenberg, who ahipn the locally collected scrap iron, and who backs up bis statement .with some plain .facts and .figures. M Percent Domestic Greenkerg points out that in 1936 •the total production of etec I in the United States wai 60 mUttrn tons. In making steel*, about 25 percent of the content in.nev/ steel Is old scrap iron, ft 12Vii .million tons in I9».

That »«»p iron is In great 4»- jnand a* Ibe ba*> for making .of war materials, has been highly publicized In press and magazine recently. Anti-war orgutaAtlon* hare naturally taken this as a sig- pal meaning trepiueUfm teg war--- m^ff that Jifif*nr* are >reparin£ HOT •wmr cannot and is not denied. Bat Craaberg explain* this agitation as a very clever jropafawla •cheme by doroe»Uc user* of scrap iron to get the government to nlaee an embargo on the exportation of •crap Iron and thus force the domestic price down, allowing local us* era of wrap iron to buy what they need at a much Jower price. The possibility of export, even of 10 percent, is such that scrap iron pricfi have gone up recently, as compared with a few years ago. Where It doe* Commenting on his own shipments of scrap iron, Mr. Greenberg says that many of his recent shipments have gone to Sterling, 111., to the Northwestern Barbed Wire Co., makers of barbed wire fences. Other shipments have gone to Peorta and Mollne, 111. Occasionally he ships some to Du- lutb, Minn., where it is in turn shipped by boat to the steel cent- era of Pennsylvania or Gary, Indiana. The real way to stop providing materials for war, according to Mr. Greenberg's views, would be to prohibit the export of the finished products such as guns, completed boat* and battleships and the Implements actually used in and necessary to war.

The Jury returned a verdict of "not guilty" after three and a half hours deliberation. •Wfrikel, -hi commenting on the case, stated that there were only three points to mrike.

May 1. With the retiring of Fred Fleming, rural letter currier Friday. April 3O, following a service of 27 years, the entire route of sixty miles will be turned over lo Gale Berryhill, who has had Ihe opposite route from Mr. Fleming. The route of Mr. Fleming has been a coverage of 31 miles, while that of Mr. Berryhill has been 29. The new schedule is 8 u. ra. to leave the postoffice, und 12 noon to report in. This can easily be covered by one carrier in good weather conditions. Thomas Sweeney U substitute At first the fire was difficult to locate. Pouring clouds of smoke made it impossible for the firemen to get Into the proximity of the fire. Two of them, Frank Ostrum and Bert Muckey, were temporarily overcome by smoke, but soon recovered and went back Into the battle against the flames. It was nearly an hour before actual flames could be seen. The fire evidently shot up the rear of the theatre, from the furnace room,> the scenery and curtains on the stage, and then up Into the rafters and the roof. Janitor TWJs Story Chris Knudsen, Call theatre janitor, told his «tory. He had left the furnace room about 12:15 that noon, and everything was In good Khape at that time. The theatre had a nearly new boiler and a stoker feeder Into the furnace. Mrs. N. C. Rice, who has been ill since the first of the year, was confined to the Rice apartment over the front of the theatre, and was having her hair fixed by Mrs. Edythe Dailey, when the signs of smoke were observed. Mrs, Rice was aided from the burning build- Ing and taken to the Algona Hotel temporarily. In the meantime, when it finally Became apparent that local apparatus could not stop the fire, and that it might spread to adjacent buildings, a call was put in to Emmetsburg, Humboldt, Whittemore and LuVerne and trucks from those points responded to the call. Fort Dodge sent its fire chief and several firemen. Building Wall* God-vend The walls of the Call theatre held, and today stand an empty •hdll. But to their strength must go the thanks of the Kirsch Laundry, Vic's service, Richardson's furnilure and Ihe Advance Publishing Co. Had Ihe north wall collapsed, the wooden building next door would surely have ignited, and wilh a brisk breeze blowing the fire across the buildings mentioned It might possibly have become the city's worst catastrophe, is not already that from the standpoint of damage done. Hundreds of persons from not only Algona, but adjacenl terrilory, (locked to points of vantage to wutch the progress of the fire and the battle against it. Office windows were jammed, so were court house windows, and there was little btanding room on street corners. Even the hotel windows held dozens of spectators, who eventually found their way to the hotel roof, across the corner from the theatre.

In 1&J2 a group of local men organized the Call Opera House Co. and IOOK over the building and management and financial interest of Ihe venlure.
