Coach Dermy Myer former Algona high school and University of Iowa star gridder, and his Boston College football squad barely missed being in the place when the tragedy occurred. The team had been selected to appear in the Orange Bowl after posting an outstanding record in 1942. For some reason plans to visit the club for a banquet failed to materialize, so the team was saved. * * * Gas rationing was a problem that had to be faced by practically everyone that owned a car or truck. A new angle on the shortage came to light during the week when a proposed iuror from Lakota sent a note to Sheriff Art Cogley stating that he would not be able to serve unless he was issued five gallons of gas. It was not known what the answer to such problems, court-wise, might be. It was apparent, after looking over the week's weather, that winter had arrived. A total of 10 inches of snow had fallen in Kossuth county during the week and temperatures had taken a sudden plunge toward the bottom of the thermometer. A low of five degrees below zero was registered Nov. 29, while the week's high was 57 degrees Nov. 24. Highs the rest of the week ranged from 23 to 27 and lows from three to 15. * * ...

"Get Hep To Love", with Gloria Jean and Donald O'Connor, "Manilla Calling", with Lloyd Nolan and Carole Landis, and "Laugh Your Blues Away", with Jinx Falkenburg and Bert Gordon (The Mad Russian). * * * From the 10 Years Ago Column — The high school football team had just been defeated 45-0 by Eagle Grove after a poor season. Things were different with the Algona Independents who finished with a 25-0 win over Sutherland. The Indies team was composed of former high school and college stars, such as Ken Mercer, Sheppard, Cosgrove, J. Moore, L. Moore, McDonald, Bradfield, St. John, Samp, Reed, Nordstrom, Ostrum, Lichter and Martinek. (Mercer, high school coach and now a coach at Dubuque University, used to play in the games wearing a baseball cap, and hardly any pads of any kind. We can still see him, crouched in the huddle, drawing out the team's next offensive maneuver on the bare ground. He was great) STAPLES: Bostitch, Tatum Bwingline, Hotchkiss and Presto.
