It was announced this week in 1938 that ownership of the Sioux County Pioneer-Arrow newspaper would be passed to Alfred Martell, who had been associated with the paper for almost twenty-five years. Frank Fiske had purchased the paper in 1929, and his daughter, Francine, had been publisher for the past two years. Francine Fiske was giving up her role at the Pioneer-Arrow and she announced that she was moving to Chicago. She had taken a position with the publishers of the magazines, Hobbies and All Pets. When she began publishing the newspaper in September of 1937, she was one of the youngest in the nation at age sixteen.
