Ufret B« Mdlrtftl Thursday, Mfifeft 12,1959 18 Months Road Job In Liberia For Algona Man An Algona woman, Mrs Flor-l ehw Bwtterfield, has a husband who left her Wednesday, and excepting for the 18 months separation entailed, she is happy about it The husband, George, 40, signed and 18-monlh-contract to do road construction in Liberia, Africa. Notification of the acceptance for the job came from the Raymond Concrete Construction Co. only, three days before Mr Butterfield was supposed to leave. He. had answered a help-wanted ad in a newspaper and after the acceptance message came, he still had to get a physical report, have his glasses checked, and get a good-conduct certificate from the sheriff. Mrs Butterfield said everybody concerned was most cooperative and she took him to Des Moines Wednesday (March 4) just ahead of the big blizzard to board a plane for New York City. The trip from New York to Africa will alsio be by air. Pay for the job according to Mrs Butterfield, is excellent. If he signs for 18 month, which he did. there is practically no income tnx involved. A small living expense is to be'taken out of his pay-check and the rest sent home. College for the two Butterfield daughters, Georgia and Mary Jan, is financially assurred. At present Mary Jane is a freshman in the local high school, Georgia is In college in South Carolina and Mrs Butterfield is employed as bookkeeper at the Modern Dry Cleaners here.
