The report disclosed 240 with chest abnormalities, some indicating possible tumors, heart conditions, cancer, etc., which may require further medical attention, Mr. Schoby, county president reported. There were 48 referred for larger X-rays. These larger plates, 14x17 in size, help the radiologist or physician pin-point more accurately the type of abnormality, thus contributing to sounder diagnosis and treatment. The special X-ray program in Kossuth is part of the Tuberculosis control program conducted in Iowa to locate persons who may be spreading the disease. The Kossuth Medical Society approved the program and cooperating agencies include the County Tuberculosis and Health Association, Division of Tu- berculosisjControl, State, Department of Health and the Iowa Tuberculosis and elation.

Sub-state game at Spencer Wednesday Algona will meet either Storm Lake or Ida Grove, depending upon the winner of their district game Saturday night at Storm Lake, in the Spencer Field house Wednesday night in a first round sub state game. Since the Spencer gym holds 3,500, it is not expected there will be any advance sale of tickets here. The finals of this sub-state will be played either Friday or Saturday night at Spencer, against either Mason City or Goldfield-Clarion winner, depending upon which of these clubs wins in their first round sub-state game in the Garrigan gym Monday night. The IF in the sub-state finals depends upon what Spencer high school does in the Sioux City sub- state, if Spencer reaches the finals there, they'd play Friday nigftt and thus there will be no one to run the tournament game at Spencer that night. So the sub- state finals will be Friday unless Spencer is still in the running, then it will be Saturday.

The letter was prepared by a Committee of Concerned Citizens and sent to Weidenhoff employees Thursday, both union and non-union. The letter was timed prior 1 to a scheduled meeting between Union representatives and the management of Weidenhoff tomorrow and Wednesday. The meetings were called by the federal mediator in the strike, Mr. Towers. ' ; There is also a scheduled meeting . between. Algona businessmen and Union representatives today. THE LETTER is reprinted in its entirety: March 3, 1966 To All Union Employees of Wei- denhpff Corporation: This letter was prepared for my signature by a Committee of Concerned Citizens appointed by me to review the present status of the strike. The Committee was appointed because 1 feel very strongly that the future of Algona and the surrounding area is threatened by the continuing strike arid every effort should, be^made' to bring , ,the strike to an end at the earliest possible opportunity. Neither I nor the Committee claim any authority to speak for either party to the strike and I assure you that we are just as concerned that you receive fair compensation as we are that the Weidenhoff Corporation resume production. In an attempt to be helpful, the Committee met with representatives of Weidenhoff management on Monday evening, February 28.

As a result of positive statements made by Weidenhoff representatives at that meeting, the entire menabership of the Committee, without exception, is convinced that the company will make no better offer than it already has, regardless of how long the strike may continue. Since the package offered by the company was approved by your Negotiating Committee and your Business Representative as a reasonable settlement of this matter, and since a prolonged strike can only result in additional hardships on yourselves, your families, your union and your communities, without any prospect for further benefits, I sincerely appeal to you, on behalf of all of the persons and communities affected by the strike, to consider whether there is any justification for the strike to continue.

Here is a chance for you to prove that this is true of union members as well as everyone else. I appeal to you to end the strike so that all of us can get back to the job of building a better community in which to live. Respectfully yours, William J.
