10 • 20 . 30 Years Ago A weekly feature of by-gone days Ledyvd Girl Becomes Bride July Kouuth county flirli have been nominated for the Queen of the Furrow contest from Kossuth county. They are Donna Mae Gardner and Cindy Ann Thompson both df Lakota; Carol Rahe, Bancroft; Jean Kuecker, Whitte : more; and Maryls Long, Algona. Two girls will be selected to represent Kossuth county in the regional contest which will be held August 6 at the North Iowa Fair in Mason City. Fr. Aureliut John Burn, O.S.B., son of Mr. and Mrs. V.

Three grateful Kansas City people met two men credited with saving their lives Saturday for the first time since the Fen ton father and son pulled them from their crashed and smoking airplane west of Fetiton 10 days ago.

After 40 years of steady and faithful postal service in Algona, Assistant Postmaster Glen Raney has retired on his own motion effective this week. In his time Mr. Raney has filled about every position in the Algona postoffice. He has served under four postmasters: 1. M. Finnell, S. J. Backus, James A. McDonald, and W. W. Sullivan. There seems to be no good reason why the name of Iowa State College shouldn't be changed to give it university status. Iowa State is no longer a "cow college" as it was termed 'some years ago. It has great schools, such as engineering, .and /valuable work on atomic energy was done in its laboratories. The change in name would have some benefits. Where a "college" has "schools", a "university 1 has "Colleges". A degree from a "college of engineering" has some greater standing than one from a "school of engineering". Iowa State is a great institution of learning. If a change of name •will enhance the value of its degrees than the change should be made. From the Editorial page.

A piett of stratify by man. ager Paul Seeley in the fourth inning enabled the KC's to win their tenth con* lecutive league game at the fairgrounds Sunday afternoon. They defeated St. Joe, 7-5. The bit of strategy occurred in the Algona half of the fourth. The KC's had struck out but the bases were full via the walk route. The next man in the,batting order was pitcher "Lefty" Long. Even though -Long is the leading hitter on the KC team, Seeley thought it better to put A right handed hitter in against the left handed offerings of Thilges. So in came Froelich. Froelich justified the change by slapping a single to drive in two runs. Playing for the KC's were Winter, Meyer, Bradley, R. Winkel, D. Winkel, Quinn, G. Winkel, McMurray, D.
