A special meeting of the board of directors of the Algona Country Club was held Monday evening at the Iowa State Bank. The various committees were elected for the year 1931 as follows: Greens and Grounds committee- Albert Ogren, G. P. Towne, and Al Falkenhalner. House committee—Eugene Murtagh, J. 8. Auner and Mrs. A. K. Cliff. Membership committee—F. L. McMahon, Dr. A. D. Adams, Joe Bloom, and It. E. Linnan. Tournament committee—F. D. Williams, H. 8. Blossom and Torkel Hill. Dues were fixed the same as in 1930. Dr. F. E. V. Shore Died in Des Moines. Mr. and Mrs. Archie Hutchison went to Des Moines last night to attend the funeral of Dr. P. E. V. Shore, who died at Mercy hospital there on Monday afternoon. Dr. Shore, who was 6*5 years old, had been seriously ill for four weeks. Dr. Shore, who was bom in Canada, began his medical practice in Algona in the 80's and married Miss Bertha Call, a daughter of Ambrose A. Call, one of the founders of Algona. They located in Des Moines forty years ago and Dr.-Shore specialized in eye, ear, nose and throat practice, in which he was considered an authority after spending some time studying in London, Paris and New York. Death was caused by hardening of the brain arteries. Besides the widow, Dr. Shore is survived by a married daughter and four sons, all of Des Moines. Mrs. Gardner Cowles of Des Moines, a sister of Mrs. Shore, who with her husband is spending the winter in Arizona, will doubtless be prevented from attending 0« funeral of Dr. Shore, although it is said that her health is BO much improved that she has left the hospital. Mrs. Dickinson, wife of Congressman L. J. Dickinson, another sister of Mrs. Shore, Is in Washington, with her husband. Mrs. A. Hutchison of Algona Is the other sister.

Divideads of Satisfaction A N AUTOMOBILE accident, an unex- N pected liospital bill—could you finance it without making bothersome "arrangements?" There is joy and comfort in knowing that you have a checking account balance which is always largo enough, by several hundred dollars perhaps, to meet unexpected emergencies. And a goodly checking account balance with the Kossuth County State Bank enables one to meet unexpected buying opportunities, too. For day-by-day dividends of Satisfaction, for freedom from anxiety, keep your checking balance up—all the time, Kossuth County State B^nk / Algona, Iowa.
