The Upper Des Moiimtte^blican, May 7,1930 FISHING SEASON OPENS MAY 15 Opened in Southern 2one on if oith Boundary of £olk Co, Division Line, OONB1TIOKS PAVOE SOME BI<j BATCHES. Limit Is Fifteen Game Fish ft Day. Tweatjr-tlve fcoll Heads May Be Taken. The fishing season opens May 1 in the southern zone and May IB In the northern half of the state. The dividing line is the tier of counties paralleling Polk east and west across the state. Story and Marshall counties, for example, are in the northern zone, while Polk and Jasper, are In the southern. Fishing licenses must be obtained as usual. State dame Warden W. E. Albert reports that conditions are good and the matching season this past spring has been Ideal. The weather has been warm and there has been no high water. Never has there been such a high percentage of successful hatches In the state fish hatcheries and million bass, in Addition to other fish 25 bullheads majr be taken. LakfeS in the ftorthetti part of the state attract the largest nnmbet of fishermen when the season epens. The upper Mississippi is another attractive region. Particularly this year If th stage of water continues low the bi river on the east border of the state will furnish good fishing, according tc all indications. There has been none of the rescu work required of the state departmen this season so far, that usually come in the spring when the waters., are high. After times of flood the state must employ a considerable force o men along the Mississippi rescuing fish left in the bayous as the water re cedes. of young fry will the coming weeks. be distributed in An unusually low stage of water prevails in all the lakes and streams. Albert, who has known the haunts along the Mississippi since he was a boy a Lansing, says the big river usually carries about,ten to twelve feet of water at this season of the year, but now it is runing only three to three and a half feet .Inland .streams and lakes are correspondingly low. For fishing along tho 'Mississippi the low stage of the river M an advantage. But conditions may change by the time the season opens, especially in the northern zone where rains may come by May 15, as they often do in such quantities as to make a considerable difference. The state had to watch some of Its hatchery lakes last winter to see that the water did not get so low the fish might be smothered by the ice. In Center, Welch and Diamond lakes, In Dickinson county, the state pumped wafer in at various times to keep a proper supply. 1 These lakes are known as nursery ponds and are kept free from predatory fish, so that the best of game fish can be propagated without being preyed upon. , Where the state formerly used fish cars on the railroads, trucks are now used for transporting fish from the hatcheries to the various waters for - distribution. The catch, limits are fifteen game fish in one "day, of which not more than eight may be pike or Michael Pfeffer, Sr. Dies in Ft. Dodge.

TRACK TEAM PLACES IN DAKOTA RELAYS fakes fourth l»lace in Half Mile and Medley and fifth in Two Mile, LEARNED MUCH ABOUT BUNKING, Students Celebrate Shakespeare's Birth, Since Wednesday, April 23, was the birthday of Shakespeare, the English Iterature students were required to do something to help celebrate in his honor. Several of the girls baked birthday cakes for him which the students enjoyed during then- class periods. Some very interesting talks were also given. Salesman Was ' : Fined for Speeding. Joe Brown, a salesman from Des Moines, was arrested by Marshal Floyd (fewville Friday after a chase up the Magonal street. He was brought be- ore Mayor Ogren and fined ten dol- ars and costs for speeding. '•r^C We sell you good reliable, up to the minute shoes and hosiery. ~ Brands that are,carried by the best shoe stores all over the country. . We sell you these standard makes for less money than any other store In the state of Iowa. We give your feet a perfect fitting. We are cranks on this subject. I would rather lose a sale than give anyone a misfit. . JBeyond this we do not give a great-deal of service. We do not use any .sales talk. We do not help you to decide or plan your ensemble. We figure the average- persons know what they want and when they want it. . The customer that Is honestly trying to buy shoes or slippers gets all the attention we can spare but the high brows get nothing. The male member with a bad case of swell head or the overbearing supercilious female does not get very far at Neville's. We treat a.lady like a lady if she acts like a lady. A gentleman is always treated as such unless, he starts something different. Some people's idea of-a good time is to leave their pocket book at home, and come up town and spend the afternoon at the stores. We cannot afford to entertain them. Our small profits will not allow it. We have to hustle and wait on customers that are buying. We have to sell nearly $100.QO worth of goods each day to pay store expe^nses. If we go to visiting on week days we would go broke. Take it from me we are not going broke for there is plenty of people that yke our way of doing business. They like the real values we dish-out and are willing to cooperate with, us for they know by doing so, it makes shoes cheaper for themselves and their neighbors. They know they are not paying for lost time spent on some cranky person that takes half a day to buy a pair of slippers and then has to change them two or three times. We get rid of all this lost motion. Efficiency is our watchword. ' Our efforts, our every thought to get shoes and slippers from the factory on to our customers' feet with the least fuss and the least expense possible. That is what makes good shoes cheap. . Jimmie Neville Big; Six Meet at Hampton Next Saturday and State Meet the Week After, Nine of the local high school track team accompanied by Coach Aubrey Bonham drove to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Friday morning in cars belonging to Frank Mathes and William Fixer. The boys were entered In the South Dakota relays. The ones participating were: Blossom, Moore, Samp, Idndhorst, Mangan,' Hargreaves, Jordan, Adams and Dick Cowan.

In the'half mile relay they ;ook fourth place, In the medley they ok fourth and hi the two mile relay ihey took fifth. The mile team was not n the running as the boys were not used to starting out in bunch and con- equently were shoved around before hey knew what it was all about. The boys learned a lot about running hat would have taken them months to earn by picking It up themselves. They would watch the college runners and nconsclously imitate their style. The Ugona boys showed more class In pass- ng the baton than did most of the col- eges that were In the meet. Sioux Falls high school lost-two races because of faulty baton passing. The time in all the races both college and high was very fast. The track was a good one and was in excellent condition.

There was a ISO-piece band and'a 125-plece band from the state schools In South Dakota as well as a number of other smaller bands.

The~schools entered are: Eagle .Grove, Hampton, Clarion, Webster City and Algona.

Bad Crash on A hard wind with plenty of rain and hail struck this section late Thursday doing considerable damage. Trees were blown over as well as telephone poles. Straw was scattered by the wind and some Uttle chicks not yet shut in were blown away from their coops. Some windmills were also damaged. However we feel fortunate that the storm was not of. a more serious nature. , Another one of those pleasant Saturday evening parties was held at the Charles Culbertson home last Saturday evening. This neighborhood has been having these parties all winter and show the right spirit for neighbors. When spring work started it was feared these parties would be ab r andoned but evidently they are hard to extinguish. Cards and dancing and the usual good lunch was the procedure of the evening.
