Williams at the Frank Dlngley home last Saturday night a thief or thieves stole the doctor's new Pontiac coupe, which was parked in front of the Dlngley residence. The theft occurred between ten and eleven o'clock. Although the Mason City's four yard stride, but were | car was insured against theft, there slow in getting their plays''off and the half ended without the locals getting a score. The last half was a romp for the Mason City team and they ran up 25 more points. One of the touchdowns came from an intercepted Algona- pass which the locals failed to cover. Toward the end of the game Ostrum of Algona booted a dropklck for three points and Algona's only score. It was kicked from the twenty-five yard line. Mason City put a fast team in the field and they took advantage of all the breaks. Algona played a good defensive game throughout the first half but in the last half It seemed like they lost all their fight and laid'down. The linemen forgot to use their hands and consequently were taken out of plays which went for first downs and scores. The Algona offense failed to function but their passes, what there were of them, were good. The right side of Algona's line was weak and Mason City took advantage of this and ran many offtackle plays, which were good for long gains. The punting of both teams was fairly good but when Algona received them the blocking was poor and the safety man would not get started before two or three Mason City men were on him. It, seemed that Algona, should have used/tnore passes as their off' J rootegetastartedsbufc&ft^Mje intercepted' and riin back for a touchdown the local boys'gave up. The field was brilliantly lighted and the players could see as well as in the daytime. The stand was filled with yelling spectators and the other side of the field was crowded. A large number of Algona people drove over for the game and did their -best to cheer the Bulldogs on to a victory. It was estimated that the crowd numbered between four and five thousand people. ' Between halves the Mason City higli school band of about seventjr-flve pieces paraded around the field with a cocky drum major In the form of a high school girl. She would do credit to many college bands with her strutting and baton waving. for the game was as were approximately two hundred dollars worth of medical instruments stored In a compartment in the car which were not Insured. No trace of the thieves has been found as yet but the officers are on alert for them. Jack Rabbit Splinters Altwegg Windshield.

Godden.) The past few weeks, there has been considerable complaint made In regard to interferences, such as noisy motors, electrical apparatus having faulty wiring connections, and In a good many Instances where there have been pennies placed in fuse boxes where the wire enters the home, causing an unbearable condition as to static, Now there is an ordinance, as I understand it, passed a short time ago making it punishable by a fine of one hundred dollars for anyone causing euch interferences!. We have spent considerable time and money tracing down a few of these interferences, havo located the same, and have remedied them in a good many instances, but in some cases the owners seem to pass it off lightly and care very little whether or not it is remedied. It seems to me that with such an ordinance and where the cases arc known, that it is time for some one to start something. We have a machine In our office that is capable of locating most of the interferences and if anyone Is bothered with such interference, I wish that they would let us know as soon as possible so that wo can take care of same. It is very disagreeable to demonstrate radio sets with such interference and it is certainly disagreeable to set down and try to listen tQ a football game, or baseball game or any other program when there is considerable chirping in the radio which can be remedied and stopped. Now, it is up to the people of Algona to make complaints in these cases where it is known and take it up with the proper authorities to see if it can be stopped. Member of Des Moines Law Firm.
