Two mhirt at oar tarns ovor Sheri, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Baker, and Tom, son of Mr. and Mrs. James Fitzpatrick, spent July Fourth at Lost Island with the Bakers at their cottage. Enroute home Tom's lightweight car hit a patch of gravel and overturned. Sheri was taken to the hospital at Spencer for observation and a check-up but she had suffered only minor bruises and was dismissed Wednesday afternoon and came home. the tower would be constructed. The announcement came after a concerted drive by an Algona group backing Translator TV. However, none of the spokesmen of the group would make any comment on the announcement. KGLO is a CBS affiliate. Loers said the Board of Directors of the station, owned by Lee Enterprises, approved the translator tower here several weeks ago. THE SIGNAL would be received on a UHF station, probably around channel 75. Presently, Fort Dodge station KQ- TV transmits a signal from Des Moines station KRNT on channel 70 but the signal is seldom received here.. Loers would not say what channel the translator signal could be obtained here but it would not be on channel 3. He also said that the local group had, c coflJ.opted.xP'ther'••• stations -• about putting in a translator tower but that he did not know if any would do so. (Presently, the only strong signal on VHF is from channel 12 at Mankato. If and when KGLO constructed its translator, it would also give CBS programs to Algona but the town would still be without adequate ABC and NBC coverage.) It had been rumored in recent weeks that KGLO would put a translator tower here but announcement by the translator group was not expected until later this month, shortly before the vote on Cable TV, which is dated for July 25. # # * Eugene Fautstjch, who tried unsuccessfully three times for a Cable TV franchise in Algona, announced Tuesday a franchise for Cable TV for the town of Fenton was approved by the Town/ Council by a • unanimous vote Monday evening. All four members on the council approved the franchise, which is exactly like the one at Estherville. He said the town had contacted him as far back as 1964 about installing Cable TV there. Burial here for formor Algonan Committal services were held here yesterday for Mrs. Edna Cole Nelson, 79, former Algonian, who died Sunday at Ames. She was the widow of Dr. N. L. Nelson, veterinarian connected with the Ames university and Allied Laboratories. She is survived by a sister and granddaughter. Pairings for sectionals are announced Pairings for the summer high school baseball tournament were announced last week. Sectional tournament games will be played at four sites — Algona Garrigan, Livermore, Lake Mills and Bancroft. . The championship in the Algona - Livermore sectional will be at Garrigan July 19 while the finals in the Bancroft - Lake Mills meet will be the same night.

Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst was notified and he went to the scene to investigate. Also investigating was assistant county medical examiner, Dr. R. D. Brainerd of Lu- Verne. He said death was due to massive internal injuries and a skull fracture. Jorgenson was driving his 1962 Chevrolet south on the blacktop, just l'/j miles north of the junction of highway 9 and 169. The machine struck the northeast corner of the bridge, flipped around and came to rest facing north on the west side of the highway, still on the bridge. First persons to discover the accident were Floyd Sill and Bcrnic Mjller, both of Burt. They were traveling north and were enroute to do a small building job when they spotted the car as they came over a small hill. THEY investigated briefly and then went to the neares^ farmhouse to summon an ambulance. It so happened the farm nearest the scene is owned by the dead man's brother, Bob .Jorgenson. The two men finally aroused Mr. Jorgenson and he discovered the body of his brother when they rushed to the scene. lUUNHMIUMHIUIIHIUHIIIIMIIUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIini IMMnniHIIIinnillllllinimnniininnininMtnnnnilimnilMniMininiinniniinnnnninnn Two injured when Class ot '07 holds reunion motorbike overturns Faulstich said there are about 200 potential customers at Fenton.

Two teen-agers were injured Sunday afternoon when the Honda motorcycle they were riding overturned just east of the bridge along highway 18 east of the Four Corners. They were driver Phillip Thompson, 17 of Lone Rock and Phillip Specht, IB of Algona. Specht, a passenger on the machine, had right arm, knee and foot abrasions and Thompson had a broken collar bone and cuts and bruises. They were taken to St. Ann hospital for treatment. The accident occurred about 2:45 p.m. and was investigated by Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst. They were headed east on highway 18 with three other motorcycles when Thompson turned around when someone yelled at him. He lost control of the machine, which overturned on the pavement and slid onto the south shoulder. The Honda had about $30 total damage. • LINDHORST also checked a one-car crash Saturday at about 11 a.m. in which charges were filed against two persons. The mishap occurred one mile south and two east of Swea City on a county gravel road. A car operated by Michael K. Smith, 14 of Wakhon, Minn, and owned by Kenneth Kollasch, Swea City, was heading south and' came to a dead end. The machine was going too fast to make the turn, according to Lindhorst, and went into the south ditch and rol- The radiator on the car was still steaming and thus it is believed the accident occurred within a half hour of when the Burt men arrived, which was about 6:05 a.m. Mr. Jorgenson was the second Kossuth county highway fatality during 1967. His car was a total loss and the bridge had about $50 in damage. His body was still in the car. He was thrown partially into the back seat from the impact of the crash.
