Woman Beats Man Calling Hogs At Rolfe

Humboldt, Ia., Nov. 14.—Mrs. Charles Armstrong of Livermore, who recently won first place in a hog calling contest against nineteen contestants, again won first prize at Rolfe against twenty-eight contestants.

Volume, tone and clearness of voice were the essential qualifications necessary to win and the Livermore contestant had all three in full measure and could easily have been heard for two miles. Pat Kalligan of Rolfe won second place.

Bellows and Warner, Humboldt farmers, sponsored the contest, cooperating with the Cummings post of the American Legion of Rolfe in the Armistice Day celebration. The business men of Rolfe contributed the prizes and a trio of Rolfe citizens served as judges.
