Sev era! Other Boots are Scheduled. Fort Dodge Messenger: The American Legion having voted to continue boxing matches at the 4-H club build- fag arena at the day county fair grounds, an attractive card has been arranged with Phillips and Swezey as headllners, March 9, by R. A. Peter- Bon, manager. Clarence Phillips of Algona, who defeated "Wild Bill" Gerdes here a short time ago, and Wyman "Hamburger" Swezey, a favorite son of Bencer, attract the largest part of 1erest - this month. Swezey won by a good margin and will now take on Salvatore. Salvatore's record as a tough foe is enough to knock-out one of his own weight before fisticuffs begin, but Swezey will meet his own match. This go is expected to exhibit the most action of any event on the cnrd. Another fast bantam match will be between Johnny Smith, 120 pounds of Dickens, and Heinle Ahrens, Esthev- ville. 120 pounds. Smith has appeared on former cards here and Ahrens is an Estherville favorite, who will give six good rounds of entertainment. Farmer Lighter, Spencer, and Keith Wllmot of Marshalltown, will go four rounds. Both have the reputation of having many scalps to their credit. The last go which will be between Elmor Rorah, 160 pounds, Spencer, and 'Wild Bill" Gerdes at 165, two star performers, will go six rounds. The referee will be announced later.

The locals were Fort Dodge, in the main go of the evening's bout, for eight rounds, barring a knock-out. Phillips will weigh In at 175 pounds and Molenhoff at 180. Since Phillips' defeat of Gerdes local fans are anxious to see him matched against Mollenhoff, known as one of the tough punrhers of northwest Iowa, famous in this section for his knock-out victory over Charles Rube], Spencer's best for .some time at Graettinger last Labor day. Jlmmie Salvatore will give Swezey a hard match in the seml-windup. Each goes In at 122 pounds and fights for six rounds. Salvatore had issued a challenge to the winner of the Swezey-Jennings match at Mason City badly handicapped by sickness and injuries but gave a very good account of themselves in spite of this.

Junior Kelley has had in infected hand for over two weeks and Hansen had a sprained ankle but managed to play any way. Large crowds witnessed the games and showed a great deal of enthusiasm. Nearly all the teams showed up well in tlie games and gave the crowds their money's worth. Danbury won the tournament.

J In food shopping, both men and women, first like to shop where it is clean. Dirt, of all things is most repulsive in a food store. They like order and simplicity. They want to know the price of things. Very few people buy and ask the price afterward. Moreover, they want these prices to be either-reasonable, economical or saving. They want what they buy to be as represented. In foods people not only .want them to be fit to eat, but good to eat. Ihey want to be shown a courteous businesslike attitude by the store personnel. When people find such conditions in a store they -Uke that store, and they return again and again Ihey become permanent customers of that store' FOB THIS WEEK Three cans of Van Camp's Beans for _, Three cans of large LibbyMilk Oatmeal, large package for J , .
