Both Line and Backfield Looked Very'Good. A rejuvenated Algona football team took the field last Friday at the Athletic Park and took in the Humboldt high school team by the score of 34 to 0. The local team was in a fighting frame of mind and put on a brand of football which astonished the fans who had been watching the past performances. Algona took advantage of all the breaks and played beads op football an through the game. The back field was composed of K. Medin. BJinkman. Raney and C. Media. None of them weighed over one hundred and forty pounds but they were all dynamite. They never knew when they were downed and often they would gain fire yards after being tackled, through sheer fight. The backs and guards put out a superior brand of intereference knocking the opponents out of the way for the ball carrier. BUnfanan gave out the thrill of the day when he intercepted a Humboldt pass on the Algona twelve-yard line and scampered down the side line for eighty-eight yards for a touchdown. Several times it looked like he would be thrown but he kept on his feet and made it He is a short, stocky lad with lots of leg drive and it was a great sight to see him crash the line, bowling over the would-be tedders. Raney and Medin were also marvelous line plungers and end runners that day. Raney got over his fumbling habit and shewed that he will make a first class ban toter. The line must be accorded much praise for the way they stopped the Humboldt smashes and opened up holes for their own backs. Time after time they opened up holes that a wagon could have gone through. The ends were turning the plays inside them like college players and many times Humboldt was spilled for a big loss. Humboldt was not able to gain in the first three quarters to any noticeable extent, but in the last quarter they completed some passes for nice yardage. They got to Algona's twenty yard line once on an intercepted pass but could not advance the necessary yards to put it over the goal line. The pass at that time by Algona was practically the only poor head work that was shown by the locals during the game. The game opened with Algona kick- tag to the Trisitort forty yard line and they lost the ball on downs on their forty-five yard line. Algona made two or three first downs with the back and Mrs Karl HoffmaTof Bancroft field alternating In carrying the ball were ^teSefat^wcToSe o'clSu^j^ then they lost the ball on a fum- cheons this week at the Cooney home. | ^ Humbold^mmtod^to Medin „ were thirty- tne next play Medln wenfc around end six guests and Wednesday there were forty guests present. Yelow chrysanthemums and autumn leaves were used for decorations. Bridge was played both afternoons. On Tuesday Mrs. A. K. Cliff won the high prize. Mrs. D. P. Smith won second high, and Mrs. A. D. Adams won third. The consolation prize was won by Mrs. A. D. BurtLs. Mrs. D. R. Steele won the first prize this afternoon, Mrs. D. D. Paxson, second, and Mrs. D. W. Nugent, third.

Then the Algona backs kept plowing the line and on three plays put it over for a touchdown. The kick for goal failed, making the score, Algona 6, Humboldt 0. Algona again kicked off and both U-ams handled the ball with neither one making much headway. Blossom then went in for K. Medin and Samp for C. Medin. Blinkman then smashed to the Humboldt one foot line and Blossom took it over and kick'.-d goal making the score 13 to 0 in Alujona's favor. The half ended with the ball ; the Algona tliirty yzyd line In their possession, and the score still 13 to 0. The starting backfleld for th? second half was the same as at the start of the game. The locals kicked off and forced the visitors to punt to Al^ona's thirty yard line. Raney madi; thirty yards around end on a good sprint. They made a couple of first downs, then completed a twenty yard pass from Medin to Cowan. Algona made nineteen yards on two plays for a touchdown and Ostrum kicked goal, making the score 20 to 0. Algona kicked off and Humboldt started a passing game which threatened to score until Blinkman intercepted a pass on his own twelve yard line and dashed eighty yards for a touchdown. Ostrum kicked goal and the score was 27 to 0 in favor of the Bulldogs. Algona kicked off and the ball see-sawed back and forth for the remainder of the third quarter. Samp and Blossom replaced Medin and Blinkman in the Algona backfield. Algona could not make their yardage so O.strurn tried a Uropkick from the thirty-five yard line. It was unsuccessful and Humboidt «ot the ball on their five yard line. Algona recovered a Humboldt fumble on the visitors' eight yard stripe and after two tries at the line Samp took the ball over for a touchdown and Blossom kicked goal, making the score 34 to 0 In favor of Algona. Neither team was able to score after that, although Samp who was substituting in the back' field got away for a nice sixty yard run through the Humboldt team only to stumble on the visitor's fifteen yard line. The game ended With the ball in Humboldt's possession on their own thirty yard line with the score Algona 34, Humboldt 0. Algona has no game here next Saturday but on Armistice Day they will take on the fast Fort Dodge eleven at the Athletic Park. Fort Dodge has not been beaten as yet and held the hard-hitting Boone team to a tie. If Algona plays the same brand of football against the Dodgers that they did against Humboldt the spectators may be assured of one of the best games of the year. Foster Furniture Co.

Mr. Chrischilles has been quite s regular contributor to this section and he has made a state-wide name for himself with his book reviews. His last review was cm "The Fountain of Life" by Haretock Ellis. Mr. Chriscnilles says. "Our beloved English phycholo- gist. now hoary and mellow and strangely reminiscent of Anatole France, serves this literary cafeteria in the twilight of his long and useful career. It is written dairy-lhshibn. with comments and impressions covering the gamut of human emotions. You may pick the dishes as you like." The editor of the review page suggested that Mr. Chrischilles do a scholarly study of the resemblances between "The Sun Also Rises" and Nason's "A Corporal Once" Algona Man in Accident at Humboldt.
