The entire contents were unloaded on the ground in [ront of the fire station. Wayne Hansen loaded his truck to make deliveries of the papers and freight on his usual route to Burt, Bancroft, Armstrong, Swea City, Lone Rock, and Fenton.

Action of the driver in bringing the equipment to a fire station no doubt prevented loss of the cab and the entire load. According to Fire Chief filbert, the driver asked that a bill for extinguishing the fire be sent to the home office in Des Moines.

The school will be held on three Thursdays, February 10, 17 and 24, at the Algona V.F.W. from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. All farmers and farm managers are invited to attend this school which will be taught by Iowa State University Farm Management Specialists and County Extension Staff. DeValois reports that enrollment is limited to the first 80 people enrolling and paying the $5.00 fee. The five dollar fee includes three meals, registration and text books. Most successful farmers and economists feel that management is the most important factor in successful farming today, even more important than technical knowledge in crops and livestock, so this should be a valuable school for those at;ending. The 28 Extension Council members in Kossuth County have information and enrollment forms for this school. (Their names are listed in another article in this paper). Or contact the Extension Office at Algona or Galen DeValois and Roger Hiemstra for more information. Maurine Mills, 55, dies in Oregon church, Fenton, with Rev. Rex Spicer officiating.
