JASPERSON INJURED IN AUTO CRASH HAGG POST HRD ARMISTICE_BANQUET Legionaires' Twelfth Meeting on World's Holiday. Auxiliary Served, REV. VAN METRE WAS THE SPEAKER. H. M. Smith Was Toastmaster. Dr. Nugent, F. D. Williams, Speakers. Orchestra Furnished Music. Twelve years ago Tuesday official word was flashed over the electric wires ••oT-the world that the most horrible war in all history had ceased, the Arm- J.'tice had been signed. A few hours later every city, town and hamlet was crowded by people from the enfiire community and the world ceased all business and joined in celebrating the event. Today, this is history, but the memories of that eventful day are fresh in the minds of all and a feeling of reverence creeps over the nation as they recall the events of the war and their cessation. Hagg Post Banquets. About two hundred veterans of this great war, members of the American Legion, held their twelfth annual get together banquet at the K. of C. hall Tuesday evening. A splendid banquet had been prepared by the American Legion Auxiliary and the evening will be one long to be remembered. Rev/ Van Metre offered prayer. Following the dinner, during which |tme t<he Hagg Post orchestra furnished the music, a program was given. Howard M. Smith presided as toastmaster and at his table sat Rev. C. H.

The Chrischllles store will this week begin its sixtieth anniversary sale, which will last until Saturday of next week. The following anniversary spread in this week's paper and the thought which appears in the two page bills, prompts us to give a short review of the store's history. "There has never been an unsuccessful year in the entire history of this store. That is because for three generations the best years of five men have gone into the building up of this business. With reverence for the past and undaunted hope for the future, the present management dedicates itself to the continuance of this successful, sixty year old store." The store was founded in the fall of 1870 by Theodore Chrischilles, who came to Algona that summer. Later Mr. Chrischilles took in Max Herbst as a partner. When the elder Mr. Chrischilles was ready to retire his son, Julius, stepped into the store, and continued in partnership with Mr. Herbst. About twenty-five years ago Herman Hauberg joined the store force. Ten years later, Theo. Chrischilles came into the store and his father, Julius, retired. The store is now under the mangement of Theo. Chrischilles, Jr., with Mr. Hauberg as manager of the piece goods department. The store is' the pioneer dry goods store in Algona. In connection with the annual anniversary sale the store will again conduct its candle guessing contest. The candle Is now in the window and Is the same size candle that has been used each year. Despite the apparent sameness of the candles there has been a difference of between twenty-five and thirty hours in the length of time the candles burn, depending on the atmospheric conditions. The candle will be lighted November 22. FATHER"SWEENEY GOES TO FT. DODGE RED CROSS DRIVE BEGINS TODAY County Chairman Miller has Named Chairman in each Town of County. GOAL IS ONE THOUSAND MEMBERS. Everyone Urged to Subscribe and Make Drive Most Successful in Kossuth County History. The national Red Cross drive in Kossuth county will begin today. County Chairman H. W. Miller has chosen a chairman in each town to help put the county drive across this year. One thousand memberships is Whittelmore Pastor Given the goal for the drive. The national j drive ends Thanksgiving day, but it is hoped that the Kossuth drive will be over before that time. Everyone is urged to buy a Red Cross membership this year to make the drive the largest in the history of the county. The quick and efficient response made by the Red Cross in all parts of the country during times of flood and disaster have more than proved the worthiness of the cause. Beside that a big share of the money raised is used in the county where it is subscribed. Only fifty cents out of each membership goes outside of the county, regardless of the size of the membership. For example if $1,000 is raised on dollar memberships only, $500 remains in the county. If some of the memberships are greater than one dollar, all but fifty cents remains in the county. Those who will have charge of the drive throughout the county are Seth Calrey. at Whittemore; Kate Skinner at LuVerne; Mrs. John Amesbury and ~'~" " ~ ]iM.

President Wilson, whom by virtue of his office, was commander of the American forces, was given a fine tribute and the officers who were under his command and carried on the war were also honored. All patriotic organizations, said the 'speaker, are born as the result of war and the American Legion has many opportunities to carry out the ideals for which so many thousands of the flower of young American manhood was sacrificed. F. D. Williams. F. D. Williams was then introduced and' entertained his comrades with a number of witty stories after which he told of the opportunities that confront the Legion and of the needs of cooperation and support. Members of this great organization receive in turn for their efforts more than the cost and he admonished the members and all veterans of the World War to promptly pay their dues and do their part that the Legion might continue to carry on If all take an interest and do their share it will be an easy matter for the organization to meet its opportunities.

He told of having been a pastor at Garner and later at Emmetsburg and how he had made'an effort to become a chaplain during the war, but at first was turned down because of his age Later he received notice that his'appointment had been made and he left at once for overseas where he served for about a year.

World peace, he said, must come and Legionaires should study Americanism and think of peace. They should have patriotism of peace as well as of war. President Wilson, he said, was a great man but not appreciated. As time goes on the American people will realize more and more the principles for which he stood. It is necessary that we be prepared to protect the interests of our nation and one of the greatest duties of the American Legion at this time is to fight for hospitalization for the comrades for whom the war has not ended.

ALGONA TROUNCED BY DODGERS 37-0 Ft. Dodge Showed Superior Football in Annual Armi- LOCAL ELEVEN LACK •I PUNCH FOR SCORING, Former Algona Girl Dies in Des Moines. Relatives and friends of Mrs. Earl Smith last week received news of her death at her home In Des Moines. Mrs. Smith has been more or less of an Invalid for over two years, and her death, due to serious complications was not unexpected. Mrs. Smith is pleasantly remembered In Algona, where she is better known as Olive Bowman. She was born in 1883 at Lanark, Illinois. In February of 1888 she came with her parents to Kossuth county, the family living first in the country and later in Algona. In 1906 she was married to Earl T. Smith and continued to live in this vicinity until ten years ago, when the family moved to Des Moines. She is survived by her husband, Earl 'T. Smith, and four children, Fernley, Everett, Robert and Ralph and her father, Wm. Bowman. Mrs. Smith's brother, Bert Bowman, now dead, was at one time a solicitor for the Upper Des Moines- Republlcan and later for the Des Moines Register. When a young girl she became a member of the Methodist church and took an active part in church work, an interest that continued throughout her life. In spite of falling health, she kept in touch with activities outside her home. Her charming personality made her a favorite in both church and social affairs. Funeral services were held November 6 and burial was made in Glendale cemetery in Des Moines. Fort Dodge Outweighed Locals and Had Smooth Running Attack Which Baffled Bulldogs. County Fair Grounds Received Compliment. A. R. Corey, secretary of the Iowa State Fair, E. W. Williams, secretary of the Iowa State Fair Managers' Association, and C. C. Baldwin, of Barnes & Carruthers, the biggest booking agents in the country were Algona visitors a week ago looking over the coun ty fair grounds. Mr. Williams stated that the new grandstand was better or equal to any in the state with the exception of the one at the state fair grounds in Des Moines and that the buildings and grounds were kept up in a wonderful manner. He was particularly interested in the amount of premiums paid out in the domestic departments which arc the largest In the state. Mr. Williams said that the fairs throughout the United States were off by actual figures in attendance about forty per cent even to the Texas state fair at Dallas from which he had just came. The Kossuth county fair broke even which is better than most fairs. Mr. Williams complimented the fair association on the fact that they had spent $6000 in improvements besides what was spent on the grandstand which is almost completed. There are only about $2000 worth of bonds for the grandstand to be sold out of the original $.14,000. The local fair ia one of the few which have paid out diy| r dends this year. It paid out six per cent, this year. Before the largest crowd of the season the Algona Bulldogs went down to a 37 to 0 defeat at the hands of a superior Fort Dodge high school eleven. The locals showed a marked reversal of the form which was shown in the Humboldt game last week. The tackling was not on a par with other games and their running attack was stopped cold by the defensive work of the Dodgers forward wall. The visitors had some huskies in their lineup who made some of the Algona boys look like midgets. Algona never threatened to cross the Dodger line and was outclassed in all but the third quarter when they held the visitors scoreless. The Fort Dodge linemen opened up gaping holes for their backs to go through for many gains and then it would take three or four Algona tacklers to bring down the runner. Fort Dodge has a great team and should go through their schedule undefeated. But if, always that little word "if," Algona had played the football they were capable of the score would have been held down much lower. Algona was handicapped by not having the hard-running Blinkman in the backfield as he was out of the lineup because of illness. The First Score. The Dodgers' first score came in the first quarter when it looked like the local boys might have been just a trifle stage struck. Algona kicked off to Fort Dodge and the vistors took the ball straight down the field and culminated their drive with a pass which was good for twenty-five yards and a score. The next score cnme after a series of end runs, passes and plunges brought the ball to Algona's eight yard line and Geyer, Fort Dodge quarterback took the ball through the line and scored standing up. None of the local team seemed inclined to tackle him. The kick failed and the score stood Fort Dodge 13 and Algona 0. Fort Dodge kicked oif and the quarter ended with an Algona fumble but the locals recovered on their own 34 yard line. E-d of Half. Raney then made ten yards and a first down around end. Cooley went in for Woodruff at halfback for Fort Dodge. Medin failed to gain. A pass Cowan to Medin was incomplete. Parsons then punted to the Dodgers' ten yard line. Samp, Blossom and Norman went in for Medin, Raney and Hilton in the Algona backfleld. Fort Dodge could not gain and punted to Blossom on his own thirty yard line. Samp failed to gain on a smash. Parsons made a quick kick to the visitors' 13 yard line. Geyer went through the line for five yards. A pass was Incomplete. Fort Dodge punted to Blossom on the Algona 45 yard line. Samp gained three yards on a smash and on the net play dropped a pass from Blossom which was right in his hands, parsons failed at the line and punted to the Dodgers' 20 yard line.

Appeared in Pictures of "Mom and Pop" in Leading Sunday Daily Newspapers. Wood Cownn, the nationally known cartoonist and former Algona boy, is no doubt having much enjoyment using the names of some of his old pals in his comic strip for the Sunday papers. Recently, in his pictures of Mom and Pop he pictured "Mom" coming home from the polls where she had voted and saying to "Pop," "Well, that's -done, I voted for both candidates, Ab Long and Theo. Chrlschillos. I voted for Ab because he Is so hanj- some and for Theo. because he is so good to his mother. In another issue the picture of "Mom and Pop" shows "Pop" coming home late for dinner with the explanation that Chuck Nlcoulln had just dropped in on him and he could not run out on him "Mom" is angry and says she does not care whom he saw when "Pop" tells her how Chuck raved over her and told him how he \vas the luckiest guy in the old gang to win so lovely a woman. "Mom" replies that she never knew that Chuck was sweet on her and wants to know what else he said when "Pop" insists on dinner before telling her. Wood's cartoons, "The Hot Stove League," brought him into prominence a number of years ago and the E J Gilmore store, wl^lefh stood on the corner south of Runchey's grocery store, was the place where the old timers congregated and in those cartoons he often pictured some of the ol<J characters of Algona. * --. i -,-••:-" -f '• • •--••- •' "-- • •".-•---• ~~"~-*^<f&*T*?Sf»*:- Aged Algona Lady Died on Thursday. 'The many friends of Mrs. E. P. Keith were saddened by her death which occurred at her home in Algona last Thursday. She had been ill of carcinoma for about two years. For the past year she had been under the care or' her granddaughter, Zora Keith, who is a trained nurse. Mrs. Keith was well known in Algona and was an active worker in the Congregational church until her health failed. She will be greatly missed in this community. Livermore Editor Visits Algona Friends, Editor and Mrs. W. F. Miller of Livermore and their granddaughter, Regina Miller of Renwlck were guests at the A. L. Peterson home last Saturday, and all enjoyed a picnic dinner at the Ambrose A. Call State Park. Miss Reglna, who Is a daughter of Editor Leon Miller of Renwick, celebrated her sixteenth birthday Saturday, and in celebration of the day, chose to visit her grandparents with her father's car at their disposal. The Millers and the Petersons have been close friends for many years and the Millers therefore decided to come to Algona to spend the clay. Mr. Miller closed his newspaper office for the occasion. Mr. Miller has been the editor and publisher of the Gazette for forty- some years and to this day is the whole force. When he goes visiting his office door is locked. His paper Is one of the best local papers in Iowa and his style of writing is original and refreshing and not like the ordinary stereotyped local items in weekly papers. Mr. Miller paid a short visit to the Upper Des Molnes-Republican with which Mr. Haggard has been engaged in one capacity or another for forty-eight years.

Played at Athletic Park Last Sunday. ... . The St. Cecelia academy foo team won their first game of the season last Sunday at the Athletic Park in Algona when they defeated the Pocahontns academy by the score of 20 to 0. The crowd was fairly large and was enthusiastic over the showing of the local eleven. Pocahontas came here expecting to win but the academy boys were determined to put forth their best efforts and take home the bacon. They plnyccl heads up football throughout the game and took advantage of all the breaks. The local passing attack was a credit to the boys and to their coach, George Lichter, the former local high school Louisa M. Wood, the daughter of I E t ar .

Retailers' Institute at Court Room Nov. 20. Under the auspices of the Algor.a Community Club the National Merchants' Institute of the northwestern central part of the country, is conducting a retailers' institute program whicit will be held in the court room Thursday, November 20. About eight or ten years ago a similar institute was held here for the benefit of the merchants and their assistants. Harry L. Kyes will be in charge of the meet- Ings which will be held in the afternoon and evening. On the days proceeding the institute here there will be similar programs at Hawarden and Sheldon. The program briefly is as follows: 2 p. m.—"Store Analysis" and "Store and Stock Arrangement." 3 p. m.—"Advertising, the Promoter of Business." 4 p. m.—"Is Credit the Way Out and It So, Which Way?" 7:45 p. m.—"Training for Selling." enthusiatsically while on defense and consequently were penalized frequently which nullified their efforts to a large extent. Algona tackled hard and the Pocahontas team was unable to get their ball carriers in the open. The local ends turned in the runners in n very satisfying manner, thus stopping ony Pocahontas threat of a long run. Algona scored in the first four minutes of the first quarter. Algona had the ball on the opponents' 23 yard line when Pocahontas was penalized fifteen yards for a substitute talking before the completion of a play. This brought the ball to the eight yard line and Capcsius smashed over for the touchdown. Junior Kelly kicked the goal, making the score 7 to 0 In Algona's favor. The second score came in the third quarter, tlie result of our passes from Kelly to Hanson. The last pass was good for 20 yards and a score. Kelly missed the goal. The score was 13 to 0 in favor of the locals. The third score came in the fourth quarter when a series of off-tackle plays combined with two passes put the ball on the visitors' six yard stripe and Hegarty was pulled out of the line and smashed the ball over. The try for point was good and the score stood 20 to 0. The game was not spectacular as far as the running plays of both teams, but the locals' passing attack was good. The academy boys ran good interference and tackled hard. The Algona line opened large holes for the backs to go through and also played a fine defensive game. They stopped the visitors' running attack cold. Pocahontas did not resort to the aerial game at all. They used an off-tackle play and an end run but the alertness of the local line and ends stopped them. Kelly and Capcsius played a good game for Algona in the backfield and Hegarty played well in the line. This was Hanson's first game at end as it was Streit's first at center. Streit played a neat game there. A Pocahontas halfback showed up well for the visitors. Both teams were about even in weight. The academy plays a return game with Pocahontas there Friday night. The lineup for St. Cecelia was LE, Bestcnlehncr; LT, Baker; LG, Robinson; C, Streit; RG, Kohlhaas; RT, Hegarty; RE, Hanson; QB, Joe Lichter; LH, Finnell; RH, Capesius; FB, Kelly.

That congressional campaigns may be conducted in a modest and dignified manner was demonstrated by Congressman-elect Fred Gilchrist, who reported an expense of only $288 spent in winning the congressional seat now held by Senator-elect L. J. Dickinson. Congressman Campbell spent $250. Agnes Samuelson, re-elected state superintendent of schools, reported $70 as her expenses in the campaign. Candidates spending large sums of money for election should be disqualified in all cases. Ruth Hanna McCormick, candidate for the United States senate in Illinois, was rightfully defeated by n landslide majority when she admitted to spending over $300,000 in the primary campaign. Former Algona Boy Wins Success. Editor Seth Cairy of Whittemore dropped into this office last Thursday to compare election notes and ponder on how It happened. Seth has become one of the well known editors and business men of northern Iowa since he left the foremanshlp of this office fourteen years ago and bought the Whittemore Champion, which he has since edited. Besides editing the Champion he serves as postmaster, He has a fine family and life has smiled upon him in all respects. Some of the Algona boys of today might learn a profitable lesson by noting what industry and common sense will do for a young man. Seth Is deserving of all of his good fortune. Algona Markets.
