The finance committee reported ample funds subscribed or in sight to guarantee a good show. It was decided to have a parade at 10:00 a. m., Thursday, to be made up of business men's floats, livestock and other suitable things. It is time to begin planning what you will have in the parade. The Rolfe Municipal Band, augmented by players from neighboring towns, will furnish music both days, including several concerts. Speaking will take place each day, probably at 11:00 a. m. The speakers will be Hon. J. A. Tracy, State Fire Marshal, on Thursday, Sept. 23, and Hon. L. J. Dickinson, Tenth District Congressman, on Friday, Sept. 24. Both are splendid speakers. A horseshoe tournament is being arranged for and is in the hands of devotees of this great game that has come into prominence recently. Good prizes will be offered, and it is hoped to attract the best 'pitchers' in the country. Several good attractions will be secured to be presented free on the streets, along with a bunch of street sports that are so greatly enjoyed by the youngsters. Liberal prizes will be awarded for the sports. A team pulling contest is assured for Thursday, Sept. 23. An engineer from Iowa State College will be present with the dynometer to measure the pull of teams in the contest. This machine is as interesting as the contests. Contests will be arranged for teams of different weights. Anyone desiring to enter this contest should see Albert Feaster. If you think you have a go?>d tdam, test it with :he machine. It costs nothing to enter. This machine was not available for Sept. 24. Two big baseball games have been arranged for. Gilmore City and West Bend will play Sept. 23 at 3:00 p. m., and Pocahontas and Havelock will play on Sept. 24 at 2:30 p. m. Following this game Marathon High and Rolfe High will play football. An admission'fee will be charged to tnese games. The Palais Royale Orchestra has been secured to play for a dance each evening at Butler Hall, one of the largest dance halls in the country. The Palais Royale consists of eight pieces, and is one of the most popular dance orchestras in this section. Tickets for the dance will cost $1.00, plus war tax. Good premiums will be offered for products of the field and garden, the kitchen and the sewing room. A large list for which premiums will be offered is being prepared, and will be published next week. Copies may be available sooner. This includes corn and small grain, fruits, potatoes, and all varieties of garden truck, canned goods, jellies, preserves, pickles, baked goods, fancy work, and so forth. This display will be made in the K. of P. hall. The co-operation of the farming community and the ladies is urged in this matter. It will be impossible to make a success of this event without such co-operation. The exhibit will be free to inspect. An effort is being made to secure a display of pigs owned by Pig Club boys of the county. Other things along this line may be suggested. The desire is to ■ make a showing of what we can raise in this locality. If you happen to have anything unusual bring it in and help out with the dis- pipy- There will be a band concert and street attractions in the evening. The Goddess of Play will reign and the Spirit of Fun prevail. Come to Rolfe and have a good time Sept. 23-24. Further announcements next week.

W-V CATHERINE CAMPBELL WEDS Word comes that Miss Catherine Campbell and Fred D. Leisenger of Clayton, Idaho, were married at Arco, Idaho, Sept. 2, 1926. The bride is a daughter of Mrs. Nettie Campbell of Rolfe. She went west a few years ago to teach school and has followed in the footsteps of so many of our young ladies — found a life companion. Catherine is a fine young lady, bright, vivacious, and, in addition, schooled in the accomplishments that go toward insuring a good home-maker. Those of us here at home who watched Catherine grow up know that Mr. Leisenger has drawn a capital prize in the lottery of life. The groom is an utter stranger in this locality, but is engaged in ranching and the newly wed couple will be at home 011 a ranch near Clayton. The good wishes of a host of Rolfe friends will be with them. with the exception of the piano were home-made, yet there was quite a little harmony in the music produced. Other numbers on the program were a piano solo by Mildred ICeuck, 5 reading by Vessie Ralph, a talk 011 Club Work by Mrs. John Madsen, and an old-fashioned spelling bee. The audience was particularly pleased in having Steven Williams, an accomplished musician of West Virginia, to put on the feature numbers of the program. Mr. Williams played and sang some excellent numbers. Musical Program Feature of Garfield • Township Meeting An unusually good musical program was rendered recently at the Garfield Township Farm Bureau meeting held at the home of J. C. Truelsen. Those furnishing the music were the Garfield Glee Club, the Garfield Men's Chorus and Marion's Merry-Makers Orchestra. In addition there was an xylophone solo by Annebelle Brink-man, a song by Mary Beth Brinkman, a piano solo by Mary Melson and a vocal solo by Mrs. Guy White. The management of the Palo Alto County Fair Association has been making every possible effort to offer to the public the greatest exposition of educational and entertainment features that has ever been arranged in Palo Alto county. More money is being offered in premiums than has ever been offered before, and more money has been expended for entertainment features than has been spent for any event that has ever taken place in the county. Many people who are familiar with fair attractions say that the talent offered in Emmetsburg this year is equal to any of those offered at the State Fair this year. There are six different companies, consisting of about twenty-five people, who will present eight separate and distinct acts. The midway attractions and rides will be furnished by the Wolf Amusement Co., Inc., of St. Paul. They are bringing several carloads of attrac-ions, and have over one hundred people with their organization. The baseball tournament has been arranged between Cherokee, Spencer and Charles City, and a game will be played each day 011 Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Purses aggregating $1,000 will be offered in this baseball tournament and the purse each clay will be pro-rated, so that the winning team will receive the largest purse. The Palo Alto County Fair' has made a very rapid growth from a small beginning five years ago, and with the same unselfish service that has been given the organization by its officers and directors, is bound to grow to larger proportions in the years to come. ATTENTION, K. OF P. The first meeting of the fall and winter season will be held at Castle Hall next Monday evening, Sept. 13. All Pytliians are urged to be in attendance, as plans will be made for the coming winter's work. OFFER NEW COURSE AT AMES Will Lead to Farming, Further College Work, or Job NAIN LUTHERAN CHURCH Rev. P. M. Petersen, Pastor PROFITS JUMP $35.00 PER COW In Palo Alto county a cow testing association recently completed the second year of work. When the summaries had been made, it was found that for every cow tested the profits were $35.00 greater the second year than they had been the first. It probably cost each of the twenty-five farmers about $30.00 to test his herd, and the increased profits to each member amounted, on the average, to $300 or more. »-->■ Europe ought to be able to- make a few payments on her war debts, now that the summer touring season is over.

A new two-year course in vocational agriculture is to be offered at Iowa State College, Ames, this fall for farm boys of seventeen years or older who have completed the eighth grade, or who have had some high school work. The course is planned to lead to either of three alternatives: It will prepare the student to go back on the farm; it may take the place of high school in preparing him for the regular college courses; or it may be used to gain a position in work closely related to farming. The course is considered the' equivalent of the last two years of high school, and hence any who have gone thru the tenth grade in high school would be ready for regular college work upon completion of the course. It is expected that most of the boys who take the course will go directly back to the farm, and this is the main purpose of the course. Farm finance, co-operation, public speaking, rural sociology and economy of farm production will be stressed. At present there is a considerable demand for young men who have been raised on a farm to fill positions as testers in cow testing associations. • It is thot that students of this course would be fitted to fill these positions if they should desire such work. Farm boys interested in this new course may secure full details by writing to the Dean of Agriculture, Iowa State College, Ames, Iowa. LADIES WIN GOLF HONORS The liolfc Golf Club was represented by Mrs. F. J. Nacke, Mrs. G. G. Butler, Mrs. A. G. Hille, Mrs. W. P. Wheeler and Mrs. Marion Bruce at the tournament of the Northern Iowa Ladies' Golfing Association held at Fort Dodge last Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The ladies managed to bring home three trophies, which was considerably more than they had expected. Mrs. Nacke won the championship consolation after being defeated by Mrs. Pearce of Webster City in her first game, Mrs. Pearce later going to the finals. In winning the consolation Mrs. Nacke defeated Mrs. Fredericks, this year's lady champion at Fort Dodge, and Mrs. Christensen, last year's lady champion at Eagle Grove. For various reasons Mrs. Nacke has not played much golf this year and under the circumstances made a fine showing in the tournament. Golf fans are insisting that she enter the state tournament next year. Mrs. Butler was assigned to the second flight and took the measure of her first opponent, but had to bow to the second, Mrs. Howell, of Eagle Grove. Mrs. Wheeler's assignment was the third flight, and after a very strenuous battle with Miss Wheeler of Ft. Dodge, she was eliminated. Mrs. Wheeler fared better in the consolations of her flight and marched thru to the end, a victor and winner of the prize. Mrs. Hille and Mrs. Bruce drew the fourth flight, the former winning her first game, but being compelled to quit before completing the second game. Mrs. Bruce met all comers and emerged winner of this flight, bringing home the prize. She defeated Mrs. Lewis of Eagle Grove in the first game, Mrs. Shifflet of Eagle Grove defaulted to her in the second game, and in the finals she defeated Mrs. Price of Fort Dodge. Miss LaGrange of Storm Lake defeated Mrs. Pearce of Webster City in the finals of the championship flight. Both these ladies have played in state tournaments. The Rolfe ladies did well for their first, appearance in a meeting of this kind. MATHER FAMILY REUNION -R—R-O—W—E—T—E—S->- "Getting by" is said to be the American weakness. It's especially dangerous on a narrow road. All's well that ends well — including a detour. No woman is as great a cynic as she thinks she is. A reunion of the Mather family was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. R. S. Mather in Rolfe last Sunday, all the families of the group but one assembling for tl# occasion. It was first planned to hold the meeting at the City Park, but wet weather made home seem the better place. Those who gathered for the occasion were Mrs. E. K. Mather and Rex, Margaret J. Struthers, Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Mather and John Jean, Mr. and Mrs. Will Mather, Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Bel-den and family, Mr. and Mrs. M. C. ICelsey and family, Mr. and Mrs. Walt Mather, Mr. and Mrs. J.
