Mancil Hurlburt, 49, candidate for house Mancil Hurlburt, 49, a well known cattle feeder and conservationist from the Swea City area, announced today that he s a candidate for Kossuth coun- ;y's seat in the Iowa House of Representatives. In announcing his candidacy, Mr. Hurlburt stated that there are two primary needs facing [owa today — a need to preserve the family farm as an economic and social unit and a need to further promote the state's recent industrial growth. We must have good representation in Des Moines it we are going to meet these needs," said Mr. Hurlburt. "Under Governor Hughes' forceful leadership Iowa nas made great strides in promoting industrial growth and we need people in the legislature who will help him to keep moving the state ahead. We annot afford to send people to )es Moines,who will obstruct his ifograms. "OF EQUAL importance to he people of Kossuth county is tve tarm program. The fact that armers' income has risen in re- ent years is no accident. The eed grain program enacted by he democratic party is essenti- 1 to the prosperity of Kossuth county and we cannot afford to send people to Des Moines or to Washington who represent groups that want to terminate the >rogram. "That is why I have decided to run. We in Kossuth county nave been fortunate in having had Casey Loss as our representative for so many years. He always felt his first obligation was MANCIL HURLBURT to the people of Kossuth county and if elected 1 would continue to keep the needs of Kossuth county foremost in my mind." Mr. Loss resigned from the Iowa House last summer after many years in the legislature' to accept an appointment to the State Board of Regents. MR. HURLBURT has been ex tremely active in public affair: n recent years despite the fac Telephones antennas are nearly repaired According to Telephone Manager Claude Wednesday morning here were still 204 rural tele- )hone stations without servic*. The repairmen are concentfl ng on farm lines in the Algi LiuVerne, and Lakota areas i [t was hoped .these would back in operation within two days. And, by Friday the telephone company expected to haV£ bhe clean-up work completed — trash, wire, and leaning poles straightened. At the beginning of the week there were still 141 repairmen from Minnesota and Missouri here. They will all be back to their home office by Thursday. The only toll circuit to be repaired connects Whittemore and cimmetsburg. Repair crews were working on Hwy. 18 and hopefully service will be available soon. A total of almost 1200 calls for either replacement or repair of TV antennas have been received by Algona television dealers since the storm of March 22 and 23. The day following the storm 467 had been reported but since most of the farm and loll lines are back in service, calls have increased over twofold . . . and dealers report they are still coming in. Lora Raney, 74, of Algona, dies Sunday Funeral services for Mrs.JHughl (Lora)'Raney, :74, were"held prt'f Wednesday (yesterday) at 2 p.m. at the First Congregational church with Rev.

Damage in power failure THIS PHOTO of the external damage after.an explosion in the newest engine at the Algona light plant Sunday shows the exhaust pipe near the point where it goes outside the building and connects to the muffler outside the west wall. The covering over the expansion joint and the damage to it are pictured. The joint under the covering is to expand as the exhaust pipe temperature reaches 900 degrees when the machine is in operation. This takes care of any possible strain on the engine. If it wasn't for the expansion band, the pipe off the engine would be broken or the muffler pushed out of place. Estimated damage from the explosion which occurred about 7:40 a.m. is $1,000. There was no personal injury nor damage done to the building. The noise of the blast was reported to be heard in the southern part of Algona. The new engine was carrying the load alone when a short circuit in the switch gear caused an overload and it backfired — blowing out the expansion joint and the door off the switch gear. Damage was confined to the switch gear, rriui'Iler and the piping. Supt. T. J. Palmer reported that new parts have been ordered and delivery has been promised within the week. The south part of town was without service about half an hour when the other engines took over the load. The east .ide had no electricity for about three hours until the switch gear was repaired.
