By Russ Waller * * * . Colorado Springs, Colo. There are 46 stales represented in the 507 registrations &t the 74th annual meeting of the National Editorial Ass'n. at the -Broadmoor Hotel here. Probably one of the larger delegations Is from Iowa, too. Many of, them drove, and those who did, like myself, ran into some 100 degree heat in western Kansas. Bu then came a sudden rain and hai storm in eastern Colorado and the temperature dropped 20 degrees in an hour. . •V'!.' *• * * X I know very little about raising wheat, but judging by its appearance and,the numerous combines traveling the highways, it must be about ready to harvest iri Kansas. fata City, la, f ESTABLISHED 1863 tottered ft* Mo», cl«M m»tt«r »t the potto«l« »t UftdW Act <* Cong rew o< March 8. ALGONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, JUNt 45, 195* 2 SECTIONS - 16 PAGES VOL. W - N6. IS Vote While this is a newspaper meeting, it has had quite a military touch. (Last; Thursday morning we had :a;somewhat lengthy briefing on the functions of the North American "Air... Defense Command Operational Center (NORAD), then were taken to the actual.command center. Here , a simulated attack was present;ed,-and the steps taken to intercept and destroy the invading air fleet coming from the north were shown. Canadian personnel as well as all branches of military service are stationed at NORAD : -.. . ' * . * * This unit would control in wartime all of Canada's and America's air defense forces. Al air defense combat forces, includ ing interceptor aircraft, missile; and radar, operate u n d..e NORAiD. This is a differen function than the better known 'SAC headquarters 'at Offutt Ai Base near Omaha, which control our retaliatory attacking : force in time of emergency., .There ar direct telephone circuits from liiere to the Pentagon, to SAC, t •'^'thei outpost radar lines in ( Canada, all mannied^every minute of ' Maybe Sgt. Frank Smith Couida Helped A swarthy, well-built man, driving an auto with a Missouri license plate successfully swindled one 4qcal grocery store'and' made an attempt to get away with free groceries from another Monday afternoon. Police were notified of the goings-on and might have arrested the man if a car hadn't stalled at a stop light and made* it impossible for the police car to get under way. The mysterious stranger first appeared at the Council Oak store and claimed his wife had purchased groceries there Saturday evening. As the story (and it was strictly a story) went — two items, a two-pound can of coffee and a half-pound can of black pepper were missing from the. grocery sack when the man and his wife got home. Council Oak Manager Chris Wallukait, not wanting to cause hard feelings, gave the man a pound of coffee and the black pepper. After the man left, Wallu- kait' came up with the' thought the man might try the same pilch at Consumer's. An Upper Des Moines reporter, in the store at the lime, checked to see if Ihe man was at Consumer's, and sure enough — he was. He gave Butcher Bill Becker and Ron Tschetter, son of the store manager, a story about having been shorted a half-pound of black pepper and a six or seven pound ham in his' grocery order Saturday evening; The Must File For Homestead Tax Before July! If you have built a' home since July 1, 1958, and are now living in it, you. must go to. county assessor Leo ImmerCall's office to: file tor homestead tax credit on or before July 1, 1959. July 1 is also the deadline to file for soldier's exemption on property taxes. Property owners who signed for the homestead tax credit and the military tax exemption with the field assessor .when as'sess- menta were made earlier this year are already covered for the year 1959, taxes payable in 1960. To qualify for soldier's exemption on property, the veteran must have his military discharge, and separation from service on record in the Kossulh county recorder's office at time of filing, and must have served in the armed forces during World War I (April 6, 1917 to November 11, 1918X; World. War II, (December 7, 194-1 to September 2, 1945); or Korean conflict (June 27, 1950 to July 27, 1953). This morning. Friday, we visited the nev/ Air Force Academy about 15 miles north of here. Nobody missed the trip. The Air Academy is located on a 17,000 acre tract, with the Rocky Mountains as a background. The elevtion is about 6,000 feet. While much is constructed, and all of the actual cadet buildings for •housing and study, there is still much building in progress, especially homes for civilian and military personnel attached to the Academy. There is' no air field here as yet, but one is planned. Air Force Cadets spend the first four years on academic •work and learning discipline. Their real f light ; training comes after graduation. ' * * * Colorado Springs, like most cities^ these days, seems to be bursting at the seams. But when •the personnel connected with ,<the Academy can move" out of the city to the Academy housing, :the situation may ease up a bit. Of course it is a big tourist mecca, and the gateway to many "Jack Webb, heard tHe conversation across a hiu^ge stack of canned good!' arid called Wallukait, who in turn notified the police. The stalled car let the man escape. A check with other stores failed to produce any other reports of the man's attempt to secure groceries with a similar story. One thing's certain — the fellow either likes hot-foods or is putting in a. supply of 'black pepper before the hoarders get all of it.
