And please don't think, there wasn't a conglomeration of man's best friend represented.- Small boys made life .miserable for most of the town hounds by chasing them up the streets and through alleys in efforts to catch them and enter them in the contest. Mr. Rice advertised $40.00 In prizes but gave nearly $60.00 out. Walter Beardsley, young son of Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Beardsley of Algona, showed much sagacity when he told his mother to go and order a Christmas present as he would see that it was paid for out of prize money. He didn't have a dog as yet but he had an idea and it was a good one. He picked up the scraggliest, scrawniest- looking cur he could find and prevail- ed upon Mr. Rice to give out a prize for a vegetarian dog, which of course was won by the dog put up by Walter. There were seventy-eight dogs from all over the county entered in the contest which took place at eleven o'clock although there were some en- tri,es there by eight o'clock in the morning.

After being' graduated fro;m the Harvard law school-he, joined the army, spending nineteen .months at the front. He returned to^Wisconsin and represented the county In which the city of Madison la located, hi the legislature in 1927 and 1929.-He then-became what would be known in Teddy Roosevelt's tune, a trust Buster. Against Chain Banking. Major Rels. warned . his audience against the imminent danger of public utility rule in Iowa,.and although he Is a LaFoIlctte republican' he predicted the election of Franklin Roosevelt to the presidency in 1932 on the issue of the ownership by the people of the nation's natural resources. He made a strong argument against chain or branch banking and lauded the income , tax -when properly and exclusively used as a replacement tax. admitted, however, •. that such a He tax Chas, F, Lathrqp is Much Imprpved, was particularly useful in Wisconsin as there were many counties in that state that consisted almost entirely of cut over land which would not bear sufficient tax to even support the expense of the county government Jet alone schools, roads and so forth. The major was .very well informed and gave an interesting talk which was enjoyed by everyone present. Senator George W. Patterson was called upon and acquitted himself very creditably in a short talk on the necessity for the people to be patient with lawmakers in their effort to enact re-, forms as it takes time to bring them about. 'Call on Judge Haycraft. Judg'e Haycraft was then called upon and made an eloquent and convincing defense of courts and lawyers against ,the unfounded statements that our criminal laws were not honestly and efficiently enforced. For some time Judge Haycraft has. been a member of a commission appointed by the the governor of Minnesota to investigate crime and its punishment in Minnesota. He quoted statistics for three years in Minnesota showing that ten thousand people were held to the district courts of Minnesota to answer for crime and of that number less than six per cent, were acquitted. The, other ninety-four per cent were convicted anjl received punishment for their offense. Pleads for State Police. He said $»at {toe cause of lack of punishment for crime Is not the inefficiency of the courts, but the lack of proper means of apprehending the criminals. He said today criminals have •their machine guns and high powered cars anc} other modem equipment while th,e same method of apprehend* big them In vogue fifty years ago is still being used, we are still using the "hp_rse an4 buggy" methods. The judge made a, strong pjea for -state police giving statistics to shpw that iin the states whjere this system is In force &e number of bank robberies are few compared'With those In states that do n$ have eja^e police, He said that ;he only reftjon crime was less In Eng— J Oftnadft than in the United ' w of, Scotland Yard In the Mounted Police of '.JHrnje quartet' Qf..Mason 'W gymnasium 'last Monday night by the local Rotary club. Two hundred and sixty Rotarians, Rotary Anns and guests sat down to a sumptuous repast served :by the ladies of St. Cecelia's Guild. The. gymnasium was appro-; priately decorated with candles, balloons and streamers adding'color to the occasion.' The dinner was in cabaret style with many acts and features which would do well,Jn,v"Big Time," Bert Browne and, Hlfi Victorians of Des Moines were on hand to furnish music. Women in beautiful gowns and many men in formal', attire lent a metropolitan aspect to the affair. After the dinner and entertainment the younger people and many older ones strutted their stuff to.the strains of^ cording orchestra. '.'. .*,. The Program. The program started with the orchestra playing a number and then four' of Algona's most musical males, namely, Drs, W. D. Andrews and Claire Schaap, Harold Cowan and Don Smith, sang several songs which were well received by the listeners, A dance by five little daughters of Rotary, Barbara Haggard, Mary Louise Gilmore, MCaxine Larson, Mildred Reimer and Marabelle Reimer, gave an exhibition of dancing and singing which could not be bettered in any way. Miss Val- alee Blanche, who is instructor in the dancing school recently opened in Algona, showed what a real ballet dance was like. The male quartet again came on the stage and entertained with some more songs. Dr. Schaap ihowed his versatility by wiggling a mean pah- of feet and also doing a strut which gave evidence that he has been on the stage at some time or other.. Six girls collaborated with him in his performance and showed that Algona has some exceptional talent for the Follies chorus. The girls were, Alice Rlst, Madonna Quinn, Eleanor Backus, Catherine McCall, Sarah Doran and Bernice Harrington. The accompanists throughout the entertainment were Mrs, Eugene Murtagh, Mrs. N. C. Rice and Mary Janice Rice. "The Snow Family." The last act on the program was the climax, Eight ladles took part in it and were, to say the least, "Wows." The skit was called "The Sweet Family." Those taking part were Miss Lucia Wallace and Mesdames W. A. Fester, A. E. Michel, T. L. Larson, Don Smith, L. G. Baker, and Henry Reimer. The act was reminiscent of the well known Cherry Sisters of twenty years ago. Afc the end of the act newsboys rushed onto the floor und distributed The Rotary Rag to the guests. The Rag was }n the form of a four page newspaper with cuts of some of our sedate (jltlzens in their youthful days. One of the cleverest articles In the paper was; an ad for Dr. M. J. Keneflck, who cjafined he could cure any ill with his patent medicine. As he would be in town only one day patients were requested to bring cash for their treatmente. This made quite a hit as. nearly everyone present had, at some time or other, iu.ard the doctor^ (JJscourse on tho ifficacy of traveling M, p.'s, party End*. A Happy New Year to All.
