Algona's Junior Legion baseball team took third in the state meet at Carroll, winning one of three games in the round robin event, and finished the season with a 194 won-lost mark. Outstanding player for the locals in the state meet' was Loren Nelson, young third baseman, who got seven hits in 15 trips to the plate for a .467 batting average which placed him second in that department. Don Cook and Bill Hutchison each got five hits at Carroll. Nelson's fine play gained him the trophy for sportsmanship and it was reported that several men on the committee in charge of awards wanted to give him the most valuable player trophy, also. Up at Armstrong, thieves broke into the state liquor store and carried away 54 cases of whiskey. Total value of the haul was $3,000 and their selection seemed to center an Old Stag, Old Sunnybrook and Seven Crown. An area grocery store was charged with selling beer to a minor after a two-car crash. The beer had been sold to a 17-year old boy and discovery of the sale was made when officers investigated the mishap. The matter was to be heard in district court here. You Con Addfeii Que&tlont To Him At BOX 66 KALISPELL, MONTANA Dear Dan: I've probably got a problem you've never read before. It concerns my girl and her emotions. I can take parking or leave it alone but she demands that we park and make out everytime we go out. ' She's very, very emotional and I'm afraid one of these nights something is going to happen. Don't get me wrong. She's a gbod girl but she's too friendly for her own good. How can I help her because I like her a lot and don't want to see her get into trouble. — Max. Dear Max: You can probably best help her by cutting out the parking and discussing the problem with her. If she recognizes she has something to worry about, the next step would be for her to talk to her parents or at least her mother. * * * Dear Readers: We wrint to hejp you as much as possible and because we receive so many genuine problems and space is so limited, we're asking that you stop writing ficticious problems just for the sake of having your letter printed. For example, today's mail brought in three letters from the same individual living at Ware, Mass. In one letter the writer was a 20-year- ok! mother of five children with an alcoholic husband. Letter No. 2 represented the writer as a girl of 14 and the third letter, while sticking to the age of 14, threw me a curve. One of the letters may have been genuine but all three wound up in the waste basket because I'm not a magician and couldn't decide which was true and which was false. Let's cooperate, okay?

Fuic-iridn COME TO THE FAIR FROM THE FILES OF THE ALGONA UPPER DES MOINES AUG. 11, 1942 In cooperation with Civil- Defense, the local police and Red Cross, the Algona fire department was going to put on an exhibition of first aid at the fairgrounds Aug. 23. Included on the program were first aid practices in connection with drowning, broken neck, asphyxiation, etc., and Joseph Dobson, national Red Cross representative from St. Louis, was to supervise the show. Unusual fruit made news again •here. A freak, v apple,- .perfectly ^formed and slighU^'larger-tWfJ^ir 'golf ball, had grown fforn-r'^the trunk of a Duchess apple tree in the John Lamuth orchard. There was no sign of a leaf or branch and the apple appeared, all alone, on the trunk of the tree, about four feet off the ground. Nobody knew how the strange apple tasted, because it disappeared soon after a photo was taken of it. The Al^ona (irays unleashed one of their top hitting sprees of the campaign to register an easy 15-1 victory over Armstrong here Sunday. Getting underway with a six- run rally in the home half of the first inning, Algona went on to win easily, climaxing the verdict with a five-run outburst in the last of the eighth. Leading hitters were Long and Ringsdorf with three blows each. According to Weatherman Harry N01te, temperatures in the area during the past week were about normal — except for some slightly cool nights. (Sounds like 1962) In fact, the entire year of 1942 resembled 1962, moisture-wise, and temperature highs and lows. The high for the week was 83 degrees Aug. 5 and the low was 50 degrees the same day.

The 1962 program promises to be one of the best of all times. Grandstand presentations, afternoon and evening each day, will range from agricultural contests and shows to auto racing and a couple of the programs are be ing offered for >he first time here. It would be possible to spend a whole day looking over the boys' and girls' 4-H exhibits, including livestock, household items, etc., and remember, you will be seeing the top products turned out in Kossuth county during the past year. It's also fun to watch the judging of the livestock and the awarding of ribbons to winners. And don't forget to look at the up-to-date displays of merchandise being offered by many local firms and the culinary products, sewing, etc., entered by area homemakers. If a county fair is to be maintained annually, the support of every citizen within the county's boundaries is needed — so plan to attend (and enjoy) the Kossuth County Fair this year. You'll be glad you did. Indian Day At Titonka Is A Huge Success Titonka — This year's annual Indian Day, July 28, turned into the biggest and best for many years. It rained most of Friday while the concession people proceeded with the activities of setting up shows and rides for the midway. It stopped raining in the evening, even though briefly, so that a few people came to enjoy the attractions which opened and ran for awhile until rain again began to fall.

It's so bad I've just about decided to stop dating for a while and clear my head. Are all boys like that where a nice figure is concerned? — Hour Glass. Dear Hour Glass: Granted that a girl with a figure gets more eye attention than a straight up and down girl, that shouldn't affect the parking, petting and everything else. Your figure has nothing to do with you deciding to park with a boy. Maybe the girl's not as richly endowed as you have more brains and that's why they don't have these problems. Less probably cure all your problems. parking will Dear Dan: When does a mother stop worrying about her son?
