The "FIRST-OF-THE-WEEK" Tabloid . . . Clear Pictures - Mora News - Biggest Circulation ®pper Be* Jltoincs Entered as second class matter at the postoffice at Algona. Iowa (60511), Nov. 1. 1832. under Act of Congress of March 3. 1879. ALGONA, IOWA, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1965 12 Tabloid Pages VOL. 100 - NO. 82 1-35 Battle Is Continued No final decision. That's the word 32 legislators, civic leaders, farmers and businessmen from northern Iowa received from the Iowa Highway Commission during another session on the proposed 1-35 routing at Ames Wednesday, Oct. 27. So, the problem of locating the route of the super highway . remains unanswered. In September, the Highway Commission announced the proposed route would run between Clear Lake and Mason City after earlier speculation had placed the sometime-to-be highway parallel with highway 69 near Garner. The September decision has not been approved by the U. S. Bureau of Public Roads - although the agency reportedly favors it over all others offered. The Bureau had rejected an earlier proposal to build the highway practically straight north from Des Moines east of Garner. State Senator Don Murray of Bancroft was one of five legislators present at the hearing. He stated there could possibly be "political repercussions", referring to the Democratic party's stature in his district, Kossuth and Humboldt counties, if the Mason City-Clear Lake Interstate 35 route is approved. He also pointed out that politics was not his main concern in attending the hearing, saying, "I represent the economic interests as well as the people of this area. I am in the grain business and any change in the route would increase the cost of grain shipments to Duluth and Superior, Minn. Murray was a member of the delegation in favor of the near- highway 69 routing of the Interstate. An Emmetsburg pharmacist, Charles Hughes, pointed out there are 292,311 persons living in Iowa west of the proposed Mason City-Clear Lake, while 262,957 live east of the route. Among other items pointed out during the session was the added expense for cloverleafs, etc. if the Mason City-Clear Lake route is chosen; people in the Dows. and Latimer areas disapprove the proposed diagonal of 1-35 in their area; and that none of the proposed routes, so far, has been given any preference in planning over any other, One delegate at the meeting referred to a campaign by Mason City and Clear Lake interests, who would like to have the Inter" state take that route, because "they would be happy to have people from Des Moines routed directly to them by 1-35." There has been no indication when a final decision on the route will be forthcoming, Several from this area, besides Senator Murray, attended the Ames meeting Wednesday.
