Reserves Contribute to Carroll's Economy The Carroll Army Reserve unit, Third Battalion Service Battery, 14th Field Artillery, went through the pains of wondering if it would be moved out of the area in 1975.

However, in a November letter from the U.S. Army to members of Congress from Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin it was announced that the reserves will not relocate. Last August, WO1 Larry G. Chartier, Carroll, reported the Carroll unit has a $74,410 payroll, with 57 persons part of the unit. At that time, six more persons were needed to reach the unit's authorized strength.

The insulation is hauled from Sac City for the center as part of a federal program to assist persons who can not afford to buy home insulation 66 Fire Calls in 4 Past Year The Carroll volunteer fire department answered 66 calls in 1975, four less than in 1974, according to Fire Chief Kenneth Schwarzenbach.
