Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst was called to the scene to investigate. The death of the boy was the 6th highway fatality in Kossuth during 1967. . DRIVER OF THE car that struck the youngster was Kenneth E. Rowlet, 30 of Swea City. His car, a 1966 Chevrolet, had only minor damage. •. % The young boy was walking along the highway, 'according to Rowlet, who was traveling east on highway 9. He said the boy ran from the south shoulder north about halfway across the highway and then started back. , :* The left front car fender struck the boy, knocking him into the ditch, about 90 feet from the point of impact. Rowlet applied the brakes of his car, ; when, he.,,saw- the-bo^ "nurh^ack^u^was" -••• ••""*-' ^ - J Rowlet told Sheriff Lindhorst he thought the boy had watched for cars coming from the east and waited until two had passed before starting his dash across the highway. The accident occurred near the farm driveway of the Carl Schaubergers. The Heneman family lives about one- fourth mile west and one-fourth south of the Schauberger drive. FUNERAL SERVICES for the boy were held Wednesday afternoon at the Open Bible church in Swea City. He was one of six children of the Kenneth Heneman'family and his father has been handicapped since being injured in a car accident some years ago. It was reported the youngster was on his way to visit , a friend when the accident occurred.

IMUMIIHMUIIIIIIIIMniMMIIUinUIIMMMMMMMHHIMIIIMIIIIMHNMIIIIIIUmlMMMIMIIIMIIIMtUniHHtHMHMMMHIHMMMIMMMMHMHIHMIIHlin Opens new office now as end nears Harry L. Greenberg. general chairman for the St. Ann Hospital Campaign Improvement Fund, announced yesterday that the program is now in its final stages and that all associated with the program are optimistic regarding its end results. Mr. Greenberg stated, "We now have .$172,798.00 subscribed to the program through personal contact by our volunteer organization. Some subscriptions do yet remain to be finalized, and these are understandable, as the majority of them require more than individual attention and their responses are expected to be slow. Too, a number of people who are away from town are to be seen upon their return. Additionally, we also have some few reports to be made from our workers in Algona, Whittemore and South Kossuth." He added, "We regret it is impossible every person in the county cannot be called upon and personally be given the opportunity to assist in this important project. Because of manpower limitations we must resort to mailing to them. The final action of the campaign was instituted Tuesday afternoon when mailings to all county residents who were not contacted personally by the campaign workers were placed in the mail. "It is expected everyone iff , group will receive^ kbeir. request by. the end of this week, and with everyone seemingly realizing the importance of improving our community hospital to the highest of standards to serve our loved ones it is expected the response to this appeal will help us exceed the $200,000 needed to accomplish the job we all have set out to do." MR. GREENBERG further stated, "It is our hope that ev- 'ery individual who receives the request by mail will respond to it quickly, and to the best of his or her ability. There is a definite need that we do exceed the goal. One must realize that the program should receive an over-subscription of the $200,000 in order that it finally produce that amount for the hospital's improvements. It is only reasonable to expect that some shrinkage will be encountered against the total subscribed, as a number of people who plan' to give over the 36 months will move away from the area, others will suffer reverses and will not be able to continue payments before the expiration of this period, and as this program is not imposing any binding, legal obligation on anyone the balances on these subscriptions will not be collectible." In summing up the program, Mr. Greenberg mentioned the hospital presently is in the process of forming a board to be composed of business men who will represent all factions and faiths, to advise the hospital's administration in the future. Names of the individual members will be announced as soon as the acceptances are complete. One of the first considerations of this group will be the disbursement of the funds of this program, as they are received, for the improvements needed. Priorities for the needs will be a board decision. lady October 3, 8.00 Regular Bap- Tuesday p.m., the auctioneers; Swe| City State. wood, New Jersey, Bank, clerk. Full sale details "of Pr.

GREENBERG, on behalf of the campaign organization, and the hospital administration asked that every individual volunteer who assisted the program, men, women and high school students and that every person contributing to the program be thanked for their efforts and their assistance in making the program a success. "We also wish to thank those who have not yet made their gift to the program, but The Board of Education of the Algona Community School District at its regular meeting Monday elected Russ Medin president and Robert Black vice president. They received the report of the election judges for Sept. 11 declaring Mrs. Ruth Bay and Robert Black as duly elected for new 3-year terms on the Board. The Board also noted the passage of the proposition calling for a 7-member Board; this would be effected by increasing the membership at the next general school election in September 1968. All seven members will continue to be elected at large from the entire district. The Board approved general plans for adult education for the current year including the appointment of Frank BrUsie as director. Salaries were adjusted for seven teachers whose training and special assignments had been changed since original contracts were tendered .last March. The teaching staff, consisting of 103 members, is now complete. The superintendent reported on tentative plans for use of approximately $34,000 in federal aid funds under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. They include: Follow-up on reading skills for elementary pupils participating in the 1967 summer program; remedial reading in high school, AHS and Garrigan, for the current academic year; reduction of pupil- teacher ratio in grade one; 'tentative plans for summer 1968 activities including Distributive Education for selected high school students and reading and arithmetic for selected elementary students. All of these programs are available to both public and parochial school students. Plans for the new high school are continuing with conferences between architect and teaching staff on Tuesday, October 3. The Board plans to review these plans at its next meeting on Monday. October 16. will do so through.thes mail, and to those individuals who have already been contacted personally and who may possibly receive a request in the mail we thank them for their support and their forebear- ance of the duplicated request."
