Mrs. Anderson named So. Kossuth chairman Mrs. Lyle R. "Bud" Anderson has been named as Cancer Crusade Chairman for South Kossuth County. Mrs. Anderson was born and raised in Kossuth Coutiity and is a member of the First Methodist Church of Algona. She is also a member of the American Legion Auxiliary and of Xi Xi Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. A meeting of the board of the South Kossuth Chapter of the American Cancer Society was held March 28 at 10:30 a.m. in the Algonquin Room of the Colonial Motel. The kick-off meeting was held at 2 p.m. on the same date at the same place. Kits were given to chairmen and volunteer workers for the crusade, which started April in the county and will continue throughout the month. Frances Anderson of Estherville, field representative, attended both meetings. Mrs. Theodore Hoover, Jr., of Titonka is chapter chairman. "Volunteers are anxious and enthusiastic," Mrs. Anderson stated. "They are out to establish records, bettering their best which was achieved in 1957 when $3,925 was raised." The question has been posed many times as to why the American Cancer Society is not in the United Fund Campaign. The society has explained the reasons by saying that the American Cancer Society is a national organization, composed of volunteers and staff from every section of the country. It is a temporary organization, dedicated to one basic purpose: To conquer cancer and then go out of business. And it is an emergency organization, seeking simply to obtain enough dollars to wage an unrelenting fight to help save the millions who will otherwise die of cancer. The society states that the United Fund is a local organization, combining many community concerns in a single drive. It is a permanent organization, and it is basically a planning organization, tailoring its programs and allocations to the swift-changing needs of our complex society. The cancer society feels that there is room for both United Funds and national health agencies to advance*'their programs and raise funds, each in its own way, each enriching the community it serves. The society does not doubt that United Funds are effective instruments for meeting pressing local needs in a convenient manner. Perhaps the most overriding argument for the Cancer Crusade is the society's profound and persistent concern with education. Until science finds a cure, the public's best protection from cancer is prevention or early diagnosis, which could save some ninety thousand more lives annually. The door-to-door Cancer Crusade in April each year is the focus of this intensive and extensive educational effort. Over 2,000,000 volunteers will participate in the crusade. The Ameri- MRS. "BUD" ANDERSON can Cancer Society last year spent $12 million on cancer research alone. Mrs. Anderson announced that town chairmen include Mrs. Bryan Stewart of LuVerne, Mrs. Stanley Harris of Titonka, Mrs. J. T. Neurer of Wesley, Mrs. Dan Foley of Whittemore, Mrs. A. J. Grandgenett of St. Benedict, Mrs. Ken Roney of Irvington. Although Algona,. has the United Fund, there are two town chairmen 'for Algona, Mrs James Telecky and Mrs. Edgar Meyer. Township chairmen include Jean Voelker for Lotts Creek: Mrs. LeRoy Bonnstetter for Whittemore, Mary Jean Origer for Riverdale, Mrs. Earl Loss for Sherman, Mrs. Arthur Peterson for Buffalo, Mrs. John Hagg for Irvington, Mrs. Carl, Paetz for Plum Creek, Mrs. Robert Hard kopf for LuVerne, Mrs; Leon Martin for Cresco, Mrs. John Mullins for Prairie, Mrs. Free Bentele for Wesley, Mrs. Alfrec Schenck for Union, and Mrs Howard Sparks for Portland.

Railroad strike to slow mail delivery Mail service from this area which goes south and then east will be later coming and going Because of the strike of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen. Acting Postmaster Halbert Long received an official notice from the Postmaster in Fort Dodge Thursday afternoon that, "Star Routes out of there would be six hours late," We can't expect mail on the Illinois Central that came in the night Uii' til the next afternoon in Algona so delivery will be a day late. Star Routes and the Highway Post Offices meet the Illinois Central train for incoming and outgoing mail. With the interruption of the train service more trucks ire being put into service to haul mail from Chicago when they arc available. As this affects mail to and from Ft. Dodge, Chicago, 111., and points East there could be a delay in Federal Reserve mail —meaning some social security checks could be late. LuVerne Pern Bigings Mr*.
