STOP AND GO SIGNS. Stop and go signs are the salvation of the automobile driver in the cities. It's bad enough for the country driver In the Cities to get along without some one smashing- into him. If the federal government would make the traffic rules it would help some. In somo cities one sign means one thing and in other places another. Algona has three busy corners and collisions occur at intervals. , Stop and go signs might help avoid these. Making XT-turns is dangerous and they are permitted on Algona's busy street. These turns hold up .traffic and cause numerous accidents. Algona, with her narrow streets, is handicapped in handling the automo- | biles, but the present plan of parking parallel is working out flne, although' it is absolutely impossible to prevent double parking at times. People desiring to stop at a store must stop some where and If they have produce or are buying goods they can not be expected OTHER EDITORS OBEYING'THE 1AW. Decorah Journal: The way mass of the population look upon the pronlbl- tion amendment is significant of the American attitude towards law. Some are for it. Some are agahist It. But have our readers ever seen a person who likes a little drink," refuse to take one because it's against the law? There are .not many such conscientious persons. Some don't drink because they don't like it. Some don't drink because they are fearful of the consequences. But have you ever seen a person, man or woman, who, liking a MARKET BARROW CONTEST AT FAIR for Four-H Club Boys Was First One. THIRTY^FOUR PIGS WERE JUDGED, Hog Cholera Season at Hand Now After Dry Spell. Vaccinating the Hogs Best Insurance. The market barrow and cut-out value contest for Four-H club boys held at the Iowa state fair was the first of ts kind ever conducted. The object of this contest wsa to demonstrate the efficient production of market hogs and their relative cut-out value on he Wools. Thirty-four market barrows were flret judged according- to show ing standards which attempts to hook p the type of hog most profitable or tile farmer to raise, with the kind or which the packers will pay more drink, refused to take one on account money.

Nearly every day the homes in Algona and other cities are visited by Solicitors asking for subscriptions to papers, magazines, or for orders for hose or other merchandise. In every case the solicitor has a good story and very often the person solicited falls for the generous offer nnd donates. Sometimes they receive what they pay for, sometimes they never hear 'of it again and their money is gone. If tlie public could only realize that they can buy better merchandise of the prohibition amendment. Isn't it strange? Americans may be ever so earnest about advocating a law or defending it. But as to obeying the law, few persons feel very strongly about that. t be expected We know one person, an editor about for several seventy-five miles from Decorah, whom we saw courteously but firmly refuse a drink, though he said he liked it, simply because the law forbade the transaction. Of course such a person is admirable. He is a good citizen and a splendid American patriot. This flne gentleman, though editing a republican newspaper in a hopelessly republican county, supported Al Smith for president in 1928. No. 18 open A MENCKEN PREJUDICE. Davenport Democrat: Recalling that Henry L. Mencken was married last week, the appearance of a little volume of Selected Prejudices from the many prejudices with which he filled five volumes, seems particularly timely. It comes out as a unit of the pocket-siz series published by Modern Library\o New York. One has only to look into it to get a chuckle out of what Men- . pounds live weight.

The judges who placed the hogs on foot Were successful in picking the best hogs from the standpoint of their cut-out value on the block. Out of the first twelve places on foot nil but one of the final winners were found. In .other words the judges picked the right hogs from the packer standoclnt but did not have them in exactly the same order. . Only one high, cut-out Value pig Was missed by the judges in placing them on foot. This was a 176- pound Hampshire pig shown by T. Timmons of Washington and had a cut-out value of $13.60 per one hundred pounds live weight. This pig was not finished* yielding only 10.8 per cent of its live weight as fat for lard and the Judges were justified in leaving it out of the money. . Hog Cholera Season. Though hog cholera is always present in a country which produces as many hogs as the cornbelt the season when greatest losses occur is just at hand. All hogs are more or less susceptible to the infection of cholera germs but the young shoat as a grouo seems to be more susceptible than either older hogs or suckling pigs. In the fall our hog population is made up of a higher percentage of young hogs than at any other time so the losses from this disease are usually greatest at this season. We have just passed throush a period of warm weather where the hogs are permitted greater opportunities to roam over more territory than at any other time of the year. Moreover the timated dressing percentage and type were an considered in this placing on foot for which one hundred points were given the first place barrow and the others graded down on a sliding scale. These thirty-four barrows were then slaughtered and a cut-out test run on them. Every hog carcass was then IT'S a Six and you'll buy a cut separately and all the various cuts hlstory of the prtst shows that some of were accurately weighed The mar- our greatest outbreaks of cjiolera have ket value oJ these cuts of fresh pork occurred just after long periods of dry was then used to determine the actual we ather. cut-out value of each barrow per one hundred pounds of live weight.

A number of the teachers are strangers and have been chosen to instruct and train our boys and girtf. • If we would hope for their success they must have the cooperation of the par ents and patrons of the schools. Often a' teacher is employed in a school for the entire year and the parents never meet them. Teachers have their problems and if they could discuss the shortcomings of Willie or Mary with the parents would be in a better position to perform their duties and obtain the de sired results. Of all years, this is on> where cooperation of parents and th teachers is needed and we believe tha a parent-teachers' association in Al gona would bring about good return for the effort. le- situation in view of what'ne •e a common award at the trap shoots oluminously declared in the past is throughout this region and John has ery obvious. PETITION TOR OPEN SEASON. Petitions are in circulation in Kos suth county asking for an open seaso on pheasants. These petitions are sup posed to be signed by land owners an fanners of Kossuth counyt who cert fy that crops on their land have bee damaged by pheasants. However, seems that some of the petitions ar signed by men who neither farm or own land. It is conceded that an open season is needed. Pheasants appear very numerous this year. After the petitions are presented to the state game warden the dates will be announced. It is rumored that the open season will consist of five days scattered over several weeks. iumboldt Looks for . Some More Paving. Humboldt Republican: There is a >ersistent rumor that Primary Sixteen )etween the top of the Johnston hill and the paving already laid south of Humboldt, will be paved this fall. If the paving is laid, of course the road will be straightened. That will mean that the big ravine south of Humboldt where the road turns west, to the Buscher farm will be filled and the hills cut down. It does not seem practical to fill this ravine and pave it this fall, and yet the rather surprising fact that it is only four miles as the crow flies from the end of the present paving to the top of the Johnston hill, makes the thing sound plausible. a plentiful supply for the coming fall and winter. Fairmont, Estherville, Wallingford and other gun clubs in this region have awarded him liberally in this respect. In every Instance John has literally "brought home the bacon." His record run during the year has been 98 clay birds out of a hundred. Incidentally, John says he entered his first trap shoot in Swea City twenty years ago in connection with the field meet and fair. Mention of this event is made in the twenty years ago news this week. News and Comment. They say that woman pays but where does she get the dough? We haven't heard any one say, "Get Iowa out of the mud for a long time." The real republican contest in the coming election seems to be, who will get the largest vote, "Dick" or "Dan." Prohibition is a political issue. Pro- hibiton will never prohibit until enforcement enforces it and that is not done, A good endurance test for the boys and girls would be to see how many could finish the year with a perfect record. Well, the next election is all settled. Maine went republican and the old saying Jwlds, "As toe nation." Maine goes, so goes to be easy for some men to behind ft WPHian'8 skirt, but since suffrage Is to force they find it are produc- The rumor comes from Fort Dodge. It is well known that the highway commission has the means and the ability, and it only remains for them to get the notion. In view of the fact that the paving past the Butterworth place will be useless until the road north from the end of the present paving is finished it would seem that the highway commission will be sorely tempted to finish the four miles to the top of the Johnston hill. Everyone in Humboldt county is wishing that they will. Fined Ten Dollars and Costs for Being Drunk.

He was fined ten dollars and costs. ed annually in this country and the half has not been told. When talking about the number of unemployed just look around and see the large number of machines that are taking the place of several men. It has been claimed that the auto has raised the intelligence of the people, How about the chickens thai feed on the highways when they hear an auto coming. Now that Hancock county does not boast of being the home of the hobo convention and the governor, Garner is getting some publicity because Billy Sunday started his career there. We noticed a store window In a neighboring town offering clothing on the installment plan. This is another case where the buyer who does pay, pays for some other fellow's clothes. If anyone has the notion that Senator Brookhart will not be a acndldato in 1932 to succeed himself they better forget it. Senator Brookhart plans to die In the harness and we will bet our bottom dollar that his last words will be an attack on Wall street. A Correction. In a recently published notice of the remaining assets of the First National Bank of Algona appeared the name of Otto Loabes under asset No 786. It seems that a number of persons have confused the name with tha' of Otto Laabs, one of Union township'; substantial farmers, and the confusion has caused Mr. Laaln more or less em barrassment, as ihe judgment note list' ed is not his, but that of a man by the name at Otto Loabes, who move' away from here snm» lane aco, Once you drive a six-cylinder eaf, you will quickly recognize its finer performance!

No person is allowed to hunt, pursue, kilt or take any wild animal, bird or game n this state without first procuring a hunting license. To get straight on the hunting seasons the following is taken from the late copy of the Iowa fish and game laws: "Every person is trapping, shooting, prohibited from killing or taking for elation over last week's primary elections, but apart from that nowhere was any particular enthusiasm displayed.

As democratic nomination in each of these states is equivalent to election, Washington, now feels that it is to be rid of one turbulent grandstand player only to acquire another who, If his past record Is any criterion, may be depended upon to raise all sorts of ructions in the senate. * * * New Hampshire republicans furnished a surprise -by nominating Arthur P. Merrill for governor. Now the defeated candidate, former Governor Winant, supported by Senator Moses, Is tive onlookers maintain that many a bread-line is lengthened by men who are both able and anxious to work. Not every man skilled in some trade or art possesses that force, determination and persistency so often essential to the procurement of employment. Not all efficient specialists are go-getters—in fact, quite the contraary is too frequently the case. So thought the New york Federation of Labor when Governor Roosevelt addressed it on the subject of compulsory insurance of labor none. As a last resort, a lot of us youngsters climbed up on the fenee to see what was going on in our neighbors' yards. Neighbor Roosevelt, over in New York was "it" in a most interesting game. The New York Federation of Labor was giving a party up in Buffalo and the governor had been invited—primarily, it would seem, to explain the intricacies of that now paramount problem, "Why Is unemployment and what are we going to do about it?" Knowledge that the present unemployment situation is by no means a trifling menace to restored prosperity Is naturally not confined to Washington. The chances are that they know more about it in the industrial centers than those of us in this smokestackless city will ever learn. But we are good listeners and prolific readers and there are not a few who affirm that unemployment as a political issue is being overplayed. In fact, there are some who go so far as to say that there is no able-bodied who cannot find work if he realy wants it, and that If he prefer^ starvation to temporarily reduced pay or menial labor, that's his look-out. • * • On the other hand, more conserva- expected to run against 'the latter for the senate'nomination In'1932. Results in Michigan, Colorado, and Vermont provided food for thought—particularly nent gave John E. Weeks, an ardent dry, a close race for the congress nomination in spite of the .fact that Governor Weeks Is one of the most popular political figures the state has ever had. » * * If announcements from the rival political camps are to be given credence, the Maine election satisfied both the republicans and the democrats. Senator Fess, of Ohio, chairman of tho republican national committee,-consulted with President Hoover at the White House and followed with a formal statement; in which he diagnosed the Maine result as a "sweeping victory," as an "endorsemnt of President Hoover," and as a "stinging rebuke to the democrats." , ••;».»» v . ; Chairman Shouse of the democratic national committee, retorted in a fctate- ment that the Maine result "surprises no one except republican spokesmen," that it is no more.; significant for the republicans to carry republican Maine than it is for the democrats to win in the solid south, -that the democrats did not spend a cent or send any I speakers Into Maine, and that the fall- lag off In the vote and the republican majorities foreshadow, "such an overturn in the November election«aa 'has, U894,"f It is- certainly a .wonderful thing to find both sides pleased .with election returns. * * * President Hoover has decided to advance immediately the postofflce and other public building construction programs throughout the country primarily to help relieve unemployment but at the same time to end as quickly as possible the system of leasing post of-. flees. It is announced that the president has instructed the post office, department not to lease any more private buildings for postal purposes and to take up all existing leases as rapidly an possible. * * • i President Hoover hopes the example of the federal government will be followed- by state and municipal governments and by private industries:,. Ha has been told that large projects .undoubtedly are being delayed on account of the business depression. If this skepticism Is overcome, the president believes the more serious phase of unemployment will be passed and bus), ness will be revived more rapidly than in any other.way. V Check Your Furnace It is thought that Labor as a whole appreciates that the more society is prepared to do to ameliorate the lot of the wage earner the less dependent he becomes on the efforts of his trade organization toward that end. If the state is prepared and willing to guarantee him a living, it is only natural for him to ask why he shouH continue to 'pay dues to a union which can promise him little else? This thought Is not an insipid argument of capitalists and employers; it is fundamental, and is echoed from high places in Labor's councils. * * * Even those of us not immediately involved in the controversy rubbed our eyes when William Green, president of the Amreican Federation of Labor, sharply criticized the suggestion of compulsory Insurance which has found so many in its favor since the slump in business narrowed labor opportunities. No one is better informed than Mr. Green upon the need of some action to relieve unemployment, and his statement on the subject of compulsory Insurance is /-onsistent with what is believed to be Ait trmeral policy of American labor. What the working man of this counlri- wants is not a doi<>, or any other form of charity from the state, but a chance to work. » * * The wets seem to have found cause performance this way Now* , ,/or more heat at less cost!
