State Hirftorioal Society Iowa City," By Russ Waller « «. * Congratulations io Margaret Hayes of Irvington on the nice- feature story by Herb Owens in n recent issue of the Des Moines Tribune. Only tiling it missed was the fact that Mrs JIayes is nisi) our Irvington correspondent, us well as storekeeper and postmistress, « * • Kossuth county's Union Slough Federal game refuge is the subject of a pamphlet just issued by the Department of the Interior, fish and wildlife service. The pamphlet is available in a single copy upon request to Union Slough Refuge. Titonka, lown. Larger numbers of copies are available by special request when a larger supply becomes available, Harold Burgess, custodian of the slough reports. The pamphlet number is UL-72. It gives basic information about the slough, its origin, and its development since 1938 when it was established under Federal control. » Well, Jack and Dick meet ir Florida. It's a nice gesture, and we'll wager if the two did not, develop bitterness as a result of the campaign they could be pretty good friends — might even get around to the mutual ground of talking over their personal experiences in the Navy! Sometimes we wonder if the pressure for winning in football and other athletic contests has robbed us of the real pleasure in sports events, and the spirit of friendly rivalry that makes for sportsmanship, and friendship. Ever notice that the coaches know each other and usually respect each other, and the players likewise. Only the rabid fans are otherwise, seldom the boys or men that play and coach the game. Last weekend we experienced our first Dad's Day as a Dad who had someone attending an institution of higher learning. The event was memorable, to be sure, because we found ourself an overnight guest in a sorority house along with some 25 or 30 other Dads down at Iowa City — even had breakfast served to us in bed. We had previously been in a few sorority houses but usually Ihe house mother would drop by and suggest that it was time to leave! Time marches on! Of course there were certain obstacles, 1 like keeping under wraps the fact that you had unfortunately attended a. different institution of higher learning and one that on occasion is a number one athletic foe of the place you were visiting. But you met Miss SUI nnd the Dolphin Queen, and a host of other lovely young ladies, and it wasn't unpleasant being Dad. And after 25 years you find yourself talking to a house mother as a Dad and not as a student, and it does make a difference. • • • And what did the Mother of the student do all this time? Why we parked her over in a dormitory, dropping in occasionally to see how she was getting along, and regaling her with tidbits of the big goings on over at the sorority house! f But then, there's a Mother's Day, too, sometime next year! One thing, though, that pun- led us at first. Checking over the subjects being taken we found no history or English called by that title. There is a course called Religion, a study of the religions of the world and natjurally of historical importance. And then there is Communication Skills, which we presume in bygone days would be known as an English course, or perhaps it js just to find out if you can read and write or otherwise "communicate." But when we heard that our student was "doing all right in golf" we were really stumped. It isn't as queer as it might sound — it is just girls physical education dolled up in a new title — if you prefer you can take up bowling. * • • Yes, a fellow can learn a lot on these Dad's Day jaunts! * * * It does not take • carpenter to put a bottom in a chair. * * » Famous Last Line — I never did a day'i work in my lift, i • it WM ill fun, (Thorna* Editon).

In addition, one man, John R. Smith. 22. Wesley, received abrasions on his forehead and chin. He was treated by Dr. Warner at Wesley and released. Smith was driver of an aulo that ran into a herd of cattle owned by Wilder Rockwood 1V 2 miles east of Lu Verne at 2:15 a.m. Sunday. Nine of the animal.4 were killed outright or had to bo destroyed after tho crash. Smith was headed east on a county blacktop road at the time of the wreck. 'His auto was totally demolished. He came to a bridge, crossed it. and after reaching a slight down grade, struck the cattle. The mishap was reported to the sheriff's office hero. An area farmer, Everett Schipull, had passed the scene only minutes before the crash, had seen the cattle on the road and went to tell Rockwood about it. Before the men could return, Smith's aulo hit the herd. Harvey H. Will, 39. Lu Verne, was driver of an auto that struck and killed a deer a half-mile cast of St. Joe on a blacktop road at 3:50 \m. Thursday. An attempt to save the animal's life was made, but injuries were too severe, so the deer was killed. Damage to the Will auto was estimated at $150 by Deputy Sheriff Don Wood who investigated. Will was headed cast, and had crossed a bridge when the deer jumped out of a ditch into the path of the auto. The driver couldn't stop in time to avoid hitting the animal.

Groat, Fort Dodge, $10 and costs, no control of vehicle, Savage Timber Cats Raid Chicken House Irvingfon — A new type of chicken thieves was uncovered at the Robert Skilling farm, after the family began chocking the chicken flock, which seemed to be dwindling. After the losses continued, they decided to check ihe chickens each evening. Then came tho surprise. Mrs Skilling went to the chicken house a few nights ago and flashed on the lights. There were seven huge stray cnts feasting on freshly-killed chicken. She called her husband who began clubbing them. One big yellow cat turned furiously and attack- ed him. Those that were not killed escaped through an opening in a door. The Skillings then repaired the door. A count made of the chicjc- ens disclosed that there were 70 less than they put in the chicken yard a few weeks earlier. The Skillings think tho cats were gang of timber cats, as there is much limber on the farm. The cats were all savage and wild, but the Skillings think they have the matter under control and so far the cats have not returned since their discovery. County Stays Democratic Below Presidential Level Kossuth Plays Decisive Role, Senator, Judge With the dust of the national election still settling, political researchers are discovering some interesting facts. One of them, in the Kossuth county area, is that the balance of political power formerly held in the rural precincts of the county, has shifted to the city and town precincts. Vice President Nixon carried Kossuth county by 470 votes. His margin in Algona alone was 432 votes, or almost his county margin. In county precincts in which towns are located, Nixon carried six and Kennedy five. Nixon's Algona vote was 1709. Kennedy's vote was 1277. Nixon 20, Kennedy IS Despite the oft-repeated statement that the farmers did not vote for the Democratic nominee for president, a survey of the strictly rural precincts in Kos- suih'county indicates that Kennedy did well, although the total vote could not offset that of Algona and Kossuth towns. Nixon carried 20 county precincts including three in Algona. Kennedy carried 15, only one irj Algona. Also having a strong impact on the county vote were 630 absentee voter ballots cast, an unusually high number. There were slightly over 12,000 votes cast. The total vote in the presidential race was 12,086. Switch To Democrats Independence of thinking on the part of Kossuth voters, was never more evident. After giving Nixon a 470 vote margin, tho county switched in nearly all of its voting to the Democratic party. Kossuth county gave Loveless a 659 margin over his Republican opponent, Miller. It gave McManus a 221 vote margin over Erbe. Miller and Erbe both won on a statewide basis, so Kossuth retained its status as "black county" as indicated in charts of counties, black for Democratic, carried by the Register. Judging from the total votes in other races, there must have been somewhere between 400 and 500 voters in the county who .voted only for president, and not other candidates. The presidential contest ran between 400 and 500 votes ahead of the totals in all other races, with one exception. Moore Bested Nixon The only shift from Democratic candidates below the presidential contest was in the county auditor race. Here Marc Moore, Republican, defeated Glee Bullock, Democrat, by 1,118 votes. Of that margin, Moore held a lead of 889 in Algona, his home, taking all four wards including the third which was the only Algona ward carried by Kennedy. In fact Moore received 59 more county votes than Nixon. The victories of Clara Walker for county recorder, and Casey Loss for state representative, both Democrats, was decisive. In other county elections, Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst, Clerk of Court Alma Pearson, and County Treasurer Rosella Voigt, all Democrats, were unopposed in the general election. Kossuth held the balance of power in the 49th senatorial district, where John Brown, Democrat, defeated Max Soeth, Republican, by 988 votes. Kossuth gave Brown a margin of 1,079 votes or about 90 over his victory margin. The senatorial district tally follows: Brown is from Emmetsburg in Palo Alto county; Soeth is from Estherville in Emmet county. * * * c 3 s •5 j Algona, 1st. 374 419 5 Algona, 2nd 25(i 309 Algona, 3rd 204 514 3 Algona, 4th 309 499 f Buffalo Twp. 338 227 * Burt Tvvp. 231 238 1 Cresco Twp. 105 194 Eagle Twp. 46 85 E.

The Democratic candidate dirried Kossuth county by 1858 votes. His unofficial margin in the entire district was between 300 and 400 votes. The two contested supervisor posts went about as anticipated. In the first district, Charles Platho rolled to a 1473 to 661 win over White. In the fourth district, John Rode downed Ben Siehlmann, 1102 to 747. Plathe, incumbent Democrat, carried all precincts in his district.

Special Measures Lose Nobody yet knows quite what happened to the proposal to establish a county conservation board, except that ii lost, by a margin of 1543 votes. Perhaps the fact that it was up at an election where the heavy trend was against a state constitutional convention, caused the big majority to just plain vote "NO" on both proposals. The constitutional convention plan lost in Kossuth a margin of 4,278 votes, the most decisive defeat of anything voted upon, man, woman or proposition. In adjacent columns ore the vote summaries by precincts from the 1960 genera) election in Kossuth county. If you like to work with statistics, thpy could provide a field day in analysis of things political. Good Neighbors At Seneca Aid Mrs W.
