Agitation for permanent improvement of No. 5 to the Iowa line in yiew o? the possibility of later paving the road and designating it as a federal highway was launched by towns, along this road several years ago. In 1928. No. 5 was graded along with highway No. 16 to the junction near Minnaopa state park and in 1930 this section of the road and No. 16 to Lake Crystal was paved. During the past summer No 5 has been graded from the junction with No. 16 to Amboy and contract was awarded on October 14 for grading of the highway from Amboy to Blue Earth. Original plans of the highway de- parment contemplated awaiting until 1932 to grade from Blue Earth to the Iowa state line. Realizing that this would necessitate another year of detour on United States highway No. 169 designated on July 15,1930, the Chamber of Commerce of Mankato and other towns along this road has been leading a movement to get the grading in the 1931 program. As the entire stretch will be graded in 1931 it will be possible to pave the highway in 1932 or 1933 at least. The highway department favors the plan to allow new grades to settle two winters before paving but where cuts and fills are not great one winter's settling Is considered sufficient. Several weeks ago the Chamber of Commerce was informed that grading of No. 5 from Blue Earth to the lowi line would probably have to wait until 1932. Immediate action was taken with the result announced last week. One week ago last night representatives of all cities on No. (5 from Mankato to the Iowa line attended a meeting sponsored by the. Blue Earth Community club at Blue Earth to consider steps which might hasten the project. The group voted to arrange a hearing before Commissioner Babcock. United States highway No. 169 links Kansas City and other points of the soutihwesb with Northern Minnesdta and the route running through Iowa and over No. 5 from the Iowa line, through Mankato to the twin cities and north through Anoka.

Gary Cooper and Lily Darnita are the other starred members of the cast for this picture, which will be shown here on February 25 and 26. Because of delay in making some of the scenes for this picture Gary Cooper missed out on being cast in "Dishonored" with Marlene Dietrich, the German star, who was featured in "Morrocco." Victor McLaglen received ihe part. Much is being said today about Dietrich's shadow on Greta Garbo's path, and the controversy is the hottest thing in Hollywood today. It appears that the stars themselves are merely amused. ALGONA'S PIONEER BAND INSTRUCTOR Prof. J. F. Granzow Has Made Many Bands Successful in Past. WAS GRADUATE OF A GERMAN SCHOOL. Came to America Over Forty Tears Ago. Is Good Loyal American Citizen. Algona has without doubt the oldest and perhaps one of the most successful band instructors in Iowa. Prof. Granzow was born in Germany ar.Ci in 1870. when a young man, he bWan h!s ] studies in music and in 1376. h» was i Ben G. Studer. Alf Studer, W. J. Frimml. Fred Missel and Lou Rlcke sang two songs and later the audience was favored with two solos by Mr. Missel. George Godfrey, former instructor at the Iowa State College at Ames and one of Iowa Masters farmers, living south of Algona, gave the principal address, one so full of interesting facts and information that all held listening cars to the very end. Thomas Clark, now of West Bend, who was Wesley's second buttermaker in the early 1900's was called upon for a few remarks and interestingly compared both methods of churning and quality of cream and butter. A business meeting was held after the banquet which resulted in the re-election of all directors. Buttermilk was sold to Lou Krantz for one and a half cents per gallon and a dividend of five per cent declared on stock. The directors are J. C. Skow. John Loebig. Alf Studer. Henry Haverly. Simon Hirner and John Arndorfer. Viggo Kilsholm and Paul Engen are the buttermaker and assistant. Oh, We Ramble, We Ramble! A family of four, father, mother nnd two young children, drifted into town last Saturday evening in an old ramshackle Ford touring car with flapping were a hungry into the State's side curtains. They bunch and trooped secure aid from the county until the man found some work or could take care of his family. The man claimed to have several head of cattle and a team of horses at New trim, and he and his family hung about town on cafe, where they were fed. They were | the pretense that they ,were waiting poorly dressed and apparently had no • for money from friends in New Ulm money. Their car bore a Minnesota whom they had written to sell the license and they claimed to have come • cattle. The story goes that the fam- Finley Whitford Died Near Lone Rock. Lone Rock, February 10. Special: Finley Whitford, one of Kossuth's old residents, died at his farm home between Bancroft and Lone Rock Sunday at one o'clock. Mr. Whitford had been a sufferer with cancer of the stomach which ailment finally took his life. A week or ten days ago he was in Bancroft transacting business matters and greeting friends and feeling fine. He became seriously ill shortly afterwards and all knew that the end was near. Finley Whitford was fifty-seven vears of age at the time of his death, having been a resident of this county for more than thirty-seven years. He leaves to mourn his loss, his wife, and one daughter, Irene, 15 years of age, and z step-daughter, Mary Whitehlll, besides a brother, John, who made his home with him and a sister. Miss Eva Whitford of Waterloo. Funeral services were conducted at St. John's Catholic church at Bancroft last Wednesday morning by Rev. J. D. Fisch.

Word came to Algona last Friday of the sudden death of Miss May Coni- stock in Spokane, Washington. Mis* Comstock had been more or less of an invalid for a number of years. On Wednesday she suffered frbm a stroke of paralysis. E. J. Murtagh received a short letter from Gene Shadle telling of Miss Cdtastock's death. It seems that Mr. Shadle and his wife, who is a sister of the dead lady, were enjoying a short auto trip and were on their way home when they received a message telling of the serious illness of Miss Comstock. A few hours later when they arrived in Spokane they found her still alive but death followed quickly. She never regained consciousness. May and her sister, Josie, grew up in Algona, where the late J. M. Comstock was the leading dry goods merchant for many years, the family moving to Spokane in 1890. Miss Josie married Gene Shadle, a popular Algona boy when the family moved west, and he became the manager of the big business ouilt up by Mr. Comstock, who became a mililnoaire and one of Spokane's most prominent men. He was mayor of Spokane for a term or so, and died a number of years ago. His widow resides with her daughter, Mrs. Shadle. Miss Comstock \vho was about sixty-three years of age, was a very lovable character and has many old time friends in Algona. She was BASKET BALL!
