Will the next politico! contest for the seat of 6th district congressman find the incumbent, Merwln Goad of Boone, being opposed by Duano Dewel of Algona, present state senator from this district? That suggestion was made last week by Maury Crnbbe, editor of the Eagle Grove Eagle, a newspaper within the 6ih district, The suggestion that Dewel enter the race was also featured in a story in the Mason City Globe-Gazette last Friday. Dewel is co-publisher of tho Kossuth County Advance, He is serving his third term as state senator. Editor Crabbe said, in part: "If Sixth district Republicans are searching for a man who can beat Congressman Coad in the next election they might well take a close look at State Senator Duane Dowel." The. paper then attacked Coad's voting record, terming it "shifty." Congressman Coad, the first Democrat ever to serve as 6th district congressman, is now in his second term. He won the seat in 1958 by some 16,000 votes. lobtci Sir!, 16, Injured Friday In Truck Mishap Lakota — Early Friday eve ning an accident occurred on the gravel road in front of the Arnold New Manager Of Theatre Arrives From Arizona 'Raymond C.

Two days later the oldest son, Glen (Bucky) was playing football in the high school gymnasium. In the ruckus he received a break of his righl arm just below ihe shoulder. He is at St. Ann hospital where he will have to remain tor several days because the limb is in traclion. Bucky is right handed. Mrs Buchanan said she was almost afraid to let their daughter, Lynn, go outside for fear she will follow her brothers' examples. But she admitted they all have done belter than she did. By the lime she was 12 she had broken Ihe same arm four limes. Crop Outlook Is Excellent In This Area A cool front began moving into this area during the night Tuesday and dropped the mercury several degrees to more 'comfortable levels. Low during the night was 68 degrees and there was a trace of rain registered at the local weather station Tuesday morning. The cooler readings were welcomed by everyone. Crops, according to farmers in the area, are out of danger and not dam- iged by the unseasonal heat. It is hoped the summer's heat is at an end — although a return to 90-degree readings is alsd possible. The cool front is supposed to be fallowed by partly cloudy weather and scattered showers or thunderstorms in some areas, with readings in the mid-fifties for a couple of nights and cooler readings the next day or so. The five-day forecast shows temperatures five degrees above! normal in this area. Normal highs for this time of year are mid-seventies, so the mercury should hit 80 ,most of the time during the day through Sunday. Another cooling trend is slated late Sunday or Monday. , .Rainfall from now until Monday may amount to half an inch. Here are the readings for the past week in this area: Sept. 3 Sept. 4 Sept. 5 "Sept. 6 Sept. 7 H .78, .86 .88 .91 .94 L 46 48 64 72 67 68 68 spent .30 Tr. the Sept. 8 91 Sept. 9..: — Many persons who Labor Day weekend lounging near or dipping into some nearby lake enjoyed the high readings — but they were about the only ones who did. More got enjoyment when the mercury dropped back into the sixties. Without the plentiful moisture that this area has had in the past weeks, the intense September heat of the past few days might have done serious crop damage. But because of the previous moisture, this is not so. Soybeans are about ready for harvest, and the corn has matured somewhat ahead of time with a nice combination of August moisture and the recent heat. Crop outlook is excellent in the area according to all reports. County Drivers Complimented By Officials Drivers who operated motor vehicles in Kossulh county during the Labor Day weekend were complimented by Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst Tuesday morning for the way they conducted themselves on area highways, roads and streets. Kossuth got through the weekend, without a highway fatality, despite the fact at least 21 were killed in the state. The Labor Day weekend prove^» to be the bloodiest in Iowa's history.
