Although the storm was the only blizzard in this area during the winter, it was the third since mid-December to affect a large number of NW customers in Minnesota, Iowa and Nebraska. Rural connections in the Bancroft, Whittemore and Wesley areas were not interrupted, according to manager John Claude, because underground cables are used in these areas. The company estimated this week that 16,000 NWB- served telephones were still out. However, in Kossuth county, all long distance lines had been restored with the exception of the Whittemore- West Bend areas. Microwave feeding units have been erected to serve these two towns at Lakota for long distance. A tower from the Illinois Bell Telephone, along with technicians to serve it, was installed at the A. J. Hatten farm near Bancroft, to serve the La- rota area. This unit is in operation and he tower erected on the Bob Buscher farm on the McGregor service in the three states. affected •••••••••••••••••••V.W.W.V.V.W : Letters to the Editor The citizens of Algona can be thankful that only ONE of the eight (8) feeder circuits to customers within the city limits went completely out during the storm.
