j>gg. Mdiflfes-tepublican. July 23,1930 ALGONA WON TWO AND LOST ONE Substitutes Lost to Elmore 10 to 7 Sunday, Regulars Corwith 10 td 6, WON OVER WEST BEffD WEB, 11 ffO 3. The League Has Now Broken Up and Locals ore Booking Games With Much Faster Teams. Algona split a doubieheader baseball , game Sunday at the local ball park. They lost the first game to Mmore by the score of 10 to 7, and the second game with Oorwith they won 10 to 8. In the game with Elmore the local team used a number of substitutes who played fairly well for not having played before but they were unable to cope with the visitors. Stephenson, regular fielder for the first team, pitched for the first seven innings and put out soine of his old time brand of pitching. Watts, regular second basemen, then took up the burden. The local boys who were in {he line-up for the first game were: Neville, catcher; Stephenson, pitcher; Rising, first base; Donovan, second base; Lee, thifd base; Pearson .shortstop; Kelly, left field; Ed. Hill, center field; and Nordstrum, right field. : In the second game the locals had their first team in the field and put on a good exhibition of base ball before a small crowd. It was a free- hitting contest 'and showed that the Hoys are getting their batting eye. Essinger, who is yell known to local base ball followers, pitched for Corwith at the start. He had his old trick of picking off runners from first working to perfection as a number of Algona runners found out to tHelr sorrow, Essinger Was knocked dut of the box in the seventh and Mc- oluff went to tat the visitors. Last Wednesday Algona played West Send at the Park celebration at West Bend. The locals were behind o to s in the ninth inning when they made a si* run tally to win. The game wad poorly attended, there being about as many Algona people as others. the league, In Which Algona has been, has broken up and Manager Vinsbn is negotiating for gamed with such towns as Clarion, Hampton, Lake Mills, Oilmore City and Palmer, all of whom have fast teams.

Oorwith Hustler: Olaf Funnemark, one of the supervisors of Kossuth county, has had the public highway graded from the Hancock county line two miles West past the H. E. Rockwood and fid. Studer farms. Mr. Funnemark is an experienced road man, knows just how the work should be done and there's no dilly-dallying after the work is begun. He has had a new grade put up and has made a passable road out of an impassable one. No wonder his constituency Insist on seeping him on the job. A man that knows how and has the energy and public spirit to do his work well should receive the vote of every one in his district. Kossuth county has more good roads than any other county in the state. She Has Some Talent. One of Algona's fine young men dated a Bancroft girl and as they were riding along in his Model T Ford he asked, "Do you drink " To which she replied, "No." "Do you smoke "No." "Do you neck?" "No." "Do you dance?" "No.' "Well, for Heaven's sake," he said 'what do you do?" "Just lie," she replied. IRVINGTON NEWS. &SMX%%%^^ Mrs. Albert Butterf ield called on Mrs George Simmons Sunday.

I E WAI.TE H R Y PRESENTS TWO NEW STRAIGHT BIGHTS All progress is change. Only by change do man and the factors of his civilization move from the lower to die higher state; from the cruder to the finer development. Our Chrysler engineers devote their lives to study, to analysis, to experimentation. And out of this constant searching and trying come the knowledge, conviction and decision that lead to progress. In announcing two complete lines of New Straight Bights, in addition to our lower-priced Chrysler Sixe», we now register our moat important change and progress -all designed, all worked for, all created to give the world better and more satisfying transportation. In our progress there b no departure from fundamental principles. To maintain public approbation, we must give always finer, more dependable, more dynamic car performance—mustoffer always greater value, as well as cars better suited to the needs of modern transport. Thus, our latest Chryslers—the new Chrysler Bight and the new Chrysler Imperial Bight — containing as they do, outstanding engineering and style improvements—are, we believe, milestones along the course of automobile progress. We are proud and eager to submit these cars to the inspection and test of the public. 839 MMHiH^B^^^^H^>V^^ B "W^ H>HH ^ n ' v '^ B ^^^^ v .......
