I. Anderson, chairman, ASCS committee. Polling places are in each community. Previously, such elections had been held, at various times in different states from July through December. The 1966 ASC community committee elections in Iowa were held in August. AH farmers who are taking part or are eligible to take part in any of the programs administered by ASC committees are eligible to vote in the elections. Almost any farmer who is eligible to vote and lives in the community is eligible to run for community committeeman. The current community committee selects a slate, and the county committee may also add to the list. An eligible farmer can be nominated by petition of 6 or more farmers. These petitions are filed with the ASCS county office by August 25. Chairman Anderson said the regular members of the newly elected community committees serve as delegates to the county convention, where committeemen are elected to fill vacancies on the ASC committee. Algona's racing season closes; 7 trophies won Algona's Kossuth Speedway closed its 1967 racing season Friday night with a fine crowd, a good field of cars and seven exciting races. Seven trophies were won. The season championship trophy winner was Butch Householder. He also won the feature winner trophy. Another double winner was Danny Rueth who placed second in the season championship race and won the trophy dash. Howie Stephenson received Gene Schattschneider's third place season championship trophy. Verl Sehoon won the "B" feature trophy.

Dianna Alderson took over and won the race and the trophy. Tha namas involvad in the thaft of tiras from a truck at the Acreage Motel last weak were incorrectly printed in last week's paper. They should have read Raymond H. Dreyer, 20, and Roger L. England, 18, both of Fenton. The Advance regrets the error. Quite by chance, there is a Roger Dreyer who is originally from Fenton and now lives in Sioux City. He is in no way connected with the incident. Suspect gives law officers a lively time A rural Elmore. Minn., man was charged with public intoxication and spent Friday evening in the Algona jail as the result of an incident involving two minors which occurred Friday night. Charges are pending on the juveniles, both of rural Rake, who were released to their parents after officers stopped their car Friday evening. Another man spent time in the Algona jail after he was arrested following an accident near Burt. The man, an encyclopedia salesman working in the Algona area, had been picked up in Holstein on a traffic charge. When he was fined in JP court there, he suddenly jumped up, ran out of the room and left town in his sports car. The same man was involved in the accident near Burt which was investigated by Iowa Highway Patrolman Tom Cogdall. Cogdall ran a check on the serial number on the sports car and was contacted by the Ida Grove sheriff who radioed that a warrant was out for the man's arrest. When Cogdall went to question the salesman at St. Ann hospital, the men and a companion were sitting on the hospital steps drinking beer. The man was then taken to me Algona jail where he was picked up the next morning by the Ida Grove sheriff. instead of five members The Algona Board of Education, acting upon petitions filed with necessary number of signers, is directing the proposition of changing the number of members on the board from five to seven members, elected at large. The proposition will be on the ballot Sept. 11. If the seven-member board should be approved at the election of Sept. 11, the two extra memberships would be filled at the regular school election in Sept., 1968, one for a three-year term, 68-71; and one for a one-year term, 6869. This would keep rotation of memberships such that, after being once reorganized, there would be 2 expirations in September '69, two in '70, 3 in '71; and similarly thereafter. A majority of votes cast is required to pass the measure, voters in the entire district being eligible to vote. The three precincts are: Precinct #3 — in Community Center Building in Riverdale Township, for all voters residing in Riverdale and Sherman Townships. Precinct #2 — in City Hall in town of Whittemore, for all voters residing in Whittemore and Lotts Creek Townships. Precinct #1 — in the high school in Algona for all voters residing in the district who do not live in either Precinct #2 or #3. In short, all voters who do not live in Riverdale, Sherman, Whittemore and Lotts Creek Townships vote in Algona. Polls are open on Monday, Sept. 11 from 12 noon to 7:00 p.m. Official notice of both issues for the school election is published in all local papers: 1 — Calling for election of two members of the present 5- member board; 2—Calling for decision, on proposal to increase membership from 5.to 7 members, effective Sept., 1968. The terms of the present board will not be affected by the outcome of the 7-member proposition since a 7-member board would, if carried, become effective to Sept., 1988,
