Algona Family Moves To Duluth Mr and Mrs La Verne Qlsoh of J007 N. Minn., will 1 move to Duluth, Minn the latter part of May. The Olsens moved to Alsona six years ago when Mrs Olson was promoted to manager for the Stanley Home Products Co. The company Jws now awarded th^ra, with, the Branch 'Office in Du|. uth. Their new position there will require the supervision and management of twenty counties, The Algona city council discussed a youth center and possible spread of Dutch elm disease during its regular meeting at the city hall Wednesday night, but a lengthy discussion of the city's 94-block curb and gutter project, tabled at a special meeting five days earlier, failed to develop. A short discussion of curb and gutter was followed by a motion to table the proposal indefinitely. Under the present arrangement, it is possible for property owners to have curb and gutter installed on their own, so long as a whole block or double block, in some instances, can be done at once. Complete details on such construction should be obtained from officials at the city hall. It was announced thai no so-called "do it yourself" curb and gutter would be allowed. Such installation could foul up the city's long-range curb and gutter plans, it was stated. It is probable that the proposed large curb and gutter program will remain tabled until this fall when plans for 1961 installation can be discussed. George Drescn, operator of a local record shop, after presenting his case for a youth center, which will operate in a building now leased ).\y him on East State street, was given an okay by the council. The council also waived a $25 permit fee and issued the permit to Drescn. Councilman Ken Pcirce suggested the youth center might be a good project for local service clubs. The council is to receive a report from Drescn after the center, which will feature dancing to records every Friday night, has been in operation for a while before deciding whether city funds can be tabbed for such use when the 1961 budget is drawn up in August. Cost of operation would include a $100 per month rental fee, plus lights etc. Mayor C. C. Shierk stated, concerning Dutch elm disease, that "it has spread from Illinois into Iowa and at the present time is active in Iowa City." The small beetles also have found their way to Lincoln, Neb. and are presently taking their toll there, too. The council will study the matter further, but it is possible a stump chipper will be hired to rid the city of ugly stumps, one method of reducing the possibility a rampage of the disease here. It was also stated that property owners would be far ahead if they would have their elm trees checked by,an expert now for dead limbs, etc. and have them taken care of as soon as possible. According to all available information, the bettles will infest elm trees here in three years.
