Webster City Here Friday For Final Home Grid Tilt hdgli tefKJoPs football team, out <« action since the Clarion contest here Friday, Oct. 11, is ateted to host Webster City's powerful Lyn* at the fair- grounde here toifcofrow right <Frtday, Nov. 1) at ?:SO in the final home fray of the year. The Bulldogs will be three or four touchdown underdogs in the game, despite the fact the locals are in third place and the Lynx fifth at the present time in the North Central Conference standings. A scheduled meeting between the Bulldogs and Humboldt's undefeated Wildcats at Humboldt last Friday night was cancelled due to flu and marked the second straight contest skipped due to illness by the locals. At present it is not known if the game will be made up later. The Bulldogs already have a makeup game with Iowa Falls at Iowa Falls on the docket next Tuesday, Nov. 5, at 7:30 p.m. and it appears unlikely that the Humboldt game can be re-set after that. Two Week Layoff Coach Harold Shufart's crew began its first real workouts in more than two weeks Monday in preparation for \^ebster City. Many of the squad members are still weak from the effects of flu attacks, but it is hoped practically all will be ready for the Lynx. Webster City is one of th% finest clubs in the loop, a fact that escapes view when looking at the team's 2-3 conference mark and 3-3 season record so far. The Lynx have lost their three games by a total of only nine pointy and have outscored all opposition, 127 - 48, during the year. Hampton edged to a 7 - 0 win, Eagle Grove took a 21 - 20 decision and Humboldt a 14 - 13 verdict to account for the three defeats. Webster City has a big team that features fine running and passing attacks and will unleash its fury against the Bulldogs in an attempt to run up the score and salvage not only a better conference finish but a portion of lost prestige. At the same time, the surprising Bulldogs will undoubtedly give it all they've got in the way of effort to stay in the game all the way. Will Need Spetd Algona's attack will be based on the quick running sorties of Jim Cowan, one of the top quarterbacks in the league, and the throwing arm of quarterback Dave Richardson, whose passing has been kept under wraps-dilri ing the team's' first- threVon** ings. If necessary' conditioning and contact work was accomplished during the past three days by the locals, an exciting game is on tap tomorrow night. Only one conference gartW was played last, Friday. Clear Lake swept past Hampton, 28 - 7, to get its first conference win of the year as the other six loop teams were idled by flu.

Tidbits From fve/yn havr Acres At Britt Sold An Acre HARD-LUCK Tom Greenawald of Anamosa has been having a streak of bad luck recently. It all started when he suffered burns on his face and hands when splattered by grease. Then he had to have six stitches taken in his leg after crashing through a barb wire fence, then later he contacted pneumonia. Now he is sidelined •again*.* with a sprained thumb and ankle, suffered while playing touch football. A total of 460 acres of land in the Kent Estate was sold last week for $162,380. Buyers were Mrs John Kreigsman of Pekin, 111. and her son Martin of Cisco, 111. There were about 200 at the sale, mostly land men and agents. The land was first offered in separate quarters, with high bids being placed by Fern Huling on the home place at $330 an acre, Clarence Schaefer on the southeast quarter at $318 and Menno Rodenius on the remaining 150 acres at $310. Finally on the total lunyj sum, the three Britt area farmers pooled their efforts in bidding. Bids on the 460 acres (started at $320 per acre, the average of what the other bids had been. When the Illinois bidders got to an average of $353 they got the 460 acres. They said that they would continue to have Ben Arndorfer operate the place. Much of the other stuff sold at the sale was from the pre-ppw*r equipment age, including homemade tools.

KREMLIN Mrs Harry Sinn of Independence had a phone call from the Kremlin in Moscow recently.

For MAYOR of ALGONA I Stand For TAX ECONOMY MY RECORD: 40 Years Resident of Algona Successful In My Own Business Have No. 1 Credit Rating and I PAY MY BILLS * This election reminds me of a story about a fellow running for mayor who was giving a lengthy speech with a lot of thick salve thrown in. Finally he sat down. The candidate's wife sitting in the rear turned to a fellow sitting next to her and asked "How did you like my husband's speech?" The man thought a minute, then replied: "A half hour's rain would have done a lot more good." (This Ad !ai*rt*d By Fro It Vwt, C*adld»U for Mayw) Mrr.

He told Esther he knew the Dr. Knyi^n who owned my home year* ago and added that he had his first looth pulled by him in the hoiis-C' where he maintained an office. In fact the old office was where my bed stands. There'.' a difference, see? The man was Clarence Hayes of Rodman. » * » We have been enjoying some delicious fish brought to us from Les Pa? by John Kain and Gordon Kuhn who relumed not long afio from one of their famous fishing trip. They .had excellent luck and their adventures are interesting. * * * I was sorry to learn of the d*ath a few months ago of Robin I'elleymounter of Osage. He was a well known former Algonan and a brother of my aunt Mary Henderson Long. Be was about 70 and hf:d been custodian of a school at Osage many years. * * * Hazel Lusby, Lizzie Post and 1 left Friday, Oct. 18 for Davenport to visit till Tuesday with the A .L. Longs. I believe this is the fifth annual visit. The main point is we have a wonderful time and it seems very dull at home when 1 get back. We left my yard at eight o'clock and by the time we reach- ' ed Waverly we were hungry. Last year we discovered a very good place to eat, right on the highway as we drive into town— a good parking space and out far enough to be roomy. It was early for the noon meal so 1 settled for ham, an egg, toast and coffee, the largest breakfast I've eaten, in months. We continued on highway 3 to Dubuque and there we called on the Rev. and Mrs Robert Holz- hainmer. We had been told about the old mansion that is the parish house and were anxious to see it. It is a three stories, red brick house of 22 rooms, all huge, with high ceilings, long windows, and at the top a glassed-in turret from which one has a magnificent view of the Mississippi river. The first floor is given over to church actvities and Father Bob's office. The second floor is used by the faily, all large rooms and very pleasant with many windows. The third floor is unused but has a ballroom which could probably tell interesting tales ol pa iliyeties. ' Also on this floor"^" other bed rooms. It must have been an elegant place full of entertainments and family gatherings back in. the 6u's. To cover the entire place was quite an expedition which I didn't undertake but settled for reports from "the girls." Ruth Raney, mother of Meredith Holzhammer, had told me quite a lot about it and it interested me greatly. I am glad to have seen as much of the place as I did. » * * We'decided to take a look at Lotas college — the group of fine buildings and the beautiful campus. It is very hilly and we wondered how students could get back and forth over snow and ice. Skiis would be the answer. Enroute home we drove to Mount Vernon to take a look at the new library which was recently dedicated at Cornell, also a hilly campus and equally as beautiful as Loras. Then we passed- Coe college at Cedar Rapids as we thought we did very well as to "education." • * » From Dubuque we drove to Clinton, following the river as closely as possible, went through Le Clare, "Buffalo Bill's" birth place, past the museum named for him, through Beltendorf where the Alcoa company is located, and past the huge building which houses the project — the largest factory under one roof in the United States — po$sibly the world. I've forgotten the exact status. We reached Davenport about 5:30 and didn't even "unload." Abner said he was taking u.s out for dinner, a celebration of his birthday. So out to the shopping center where we went to a lovely restaurant where delicious food is served, * * * We were joined Saturday by Eail Bradley of Muscaline, a former Algonan and neighbor. Later in the afternoon Mr and Mrs Max Miller also former Algonans joined us for an afternoon of cards and dinner to which they had been invited as f u rt h e r celebration of Ab's birthday. We went to the same restaurant and thus time I switched from chicken to shrimps. We browsed around the stores after dinner, then home for more cards. hotel. This is always a high light of our visit there because of the exerlient food, thf wide variety of it and the nice surroundings. After dinner we called on the Millers. Their home is a little honey and I am sure they musi enjoy their screened and glassed in breezeway and brick patio very much. We enjoyed the Millers so much, the Saturday association and the Sunday call. * * * from there we drove to Moline to see Betty and Raymori Henry and the daughters Patty and Kathy. As usual we lost our way. "Brad" said "Go that way", Ab said, "No, go this way." Blanche and Lizzie had other ideas. I kept comparatively quiet and 1 firmly believe if Hazel had been let alone she'd .have found the place with no trouble. You'd think after going there three years in succession we'd be able to drive right to the place. When \ve goi there we didn't go in for Betty was in bed with the flu. Ray mon had recovered from a slight case, Patty was still coughing, so after a brief visit, we headed for Davenport. Monday was another big day- dinner «t the Blackhawk with "Brad" as host, and the "musketeers" went to see "Around the World in Eighty Days." It was highly entei'taining but I like the acoustics of our Algona theatre better. Thus ends a fine vacation and it seemed pretty dull when I got home Tuesday night. We had perfect weather while we were gone but rode home in a drizzle which sometimes got right down to the business of a real rain. * * » Interesting side lights on the trip—When Lizzie came across the alley Friday a.m., armed with a suit case and square card board box, we took for granted ft was a hat box. It got tossed around on the back seat, no one treated it with respect, so you can imagine Hazel's and my surprise when Lizzie took out a perfectly lovely angel food cake .placed it on the kitchen table at the Longs, and proceeded to frost it.
