The machine, which looks complicated, is easy to operate. Auditor Marc Moore will be happy to give demonstrations at any time.

There will be about half as many clerks and judges needed and other costs of printing, supplies, etc. will be cut tremendously. For the first year the machines are to be rented.

North Kossuth Cancer group plans drive Expect four townships to join July 1 The Board of Education of the Algona Community School District at its meeting Monday evening conferred with representatives of the school boards of Whittemore, Riverdale, Sherman, and Prairie Townships in regard to details of proposed school district reorganization, to be accomplished by July 1. After about two hours of discussion it was generally agreed that the plan of reorganization to be used would be the so-called "concurrent action" plan which requires resolutions by the respective boards calling for the merging of those districts effective July 1, 1966. . There was also a general understanding that consideration would be given, at the regular school election next September, of a plan for increasing the membership of the board of directors from five to seven members, elected at large as they are at present. This would, of course, be sub- icct to approval of the voters n the newly formed district >hat comes into being on July 1. Until September, the present Board of the Algona Community School District automatically continues in office. The anticipated reorganization will add over 4 million dollars to the present assessed valuation of the Algona " Community 'School District. THE BOARD also approved the policy of cooperation with Garrigan high school by permitting enrollment of eligible students from that high school in driver education as well as possibly other courses offered by Algona high school. These enrollments will be restricted to Garrigan students who are residents of the Algona Community School District as it is to be reorganized on July 1, 1966. Driver education courses are currently operating in Algona High School on Saturday mornings; other courses would not start until September and would be 'held in classrooms in the Algona high school. This is commonly referred to as "shared time" and was legalized by the last general assembly. The Board also submitted to the Algona Education Association (composed of all the teachers of the district) a proposal on salaries for 1966-67 with two possible alternatives: 1. A salary schedule based upon $5150 base for beginning teachers with BA degree or 2. A schedule based on $5100 with provision for approximately $50 per teacher for group employee insurance as proposed by the Iowa Association of School Boards. The estimated cost of either of the two options would be about $40,000 above present budget for this purpose or about 1% mills on the basis of anticipated assessed valuations for next year's taxes. About 15 resignations are currently anticipated to date from the staff of 92 members. North Kossuth Chapter KIRK HAYES AND Gordon K.
