Among the. speakers at the workshop were Senators Mille and Hickenlooper of Iowa, Sen ator J. J. Williams. Congress men Gross and John Ford, Gov ernor Romney and others. Theme of the workshop Mrs Schutter said was that of a re; concern for the state: the coun try finds itself in at the present ime. There is great concern >ver the increasing debt and ;alloping inflation. There is concern over the de- aluation of the dollar from a ull dollar in 1939 to only a 43.2 cent dollar now. Speakers stressed concern that this country supports the British embargo on Rhodesia, but the British ship to North Viet Nam. Mrs. Schutter said originally it took $4500 to train a person For the peace corps, but now it takes $11,200, and the speaker asked those whose children are in college to compare that Voting machines arrive Voting machines here; could use in TV election I hoar DM's lovely have no gorilla.

Mr. Danielson's condition was still regarded as critical but the longer he is alive the bitter his 'chances ! for survival Services for L. F. Dailies, on Saturday Titonka — Leonard F. Callies, 70, died Thursday at the Britt hospital after an illness of 18 days. He had been living in a retirement home at Britt. Services were held Saturday at 1:30 at the Good Hope Lutheran church in Titonka with the Rev. A. Gertsmann officiating and Blake funeral home in charge. Burial was in the Buffalo township cemetery. Pallbearers were Homer Downs, Earl Stott, H. W. Kitzinger, Gordon Hansen, Roland Fox, and Phillip Jaren. He was born Jan. 16, 1896, to the William F. Callieses. August 8, 1918, he was married to Lora Keil in Algona. She died in 1963. He is survived by a daughter Jaqueline, Mrs. Frederick Roman, and five grandchildren at Austin, Minn. Mr. Callies operated a store for many years in Titonka, retiring a few years ago. Gas franchise for Bancroft is voted down cost with the cost of their chile in college. Rep. Ford said this administration has so-called "guide li nes" for farmers and business and perhaps for labor, but tha there is no guide line on admin istration spending.

Governor Romney also quoted moral decay as a real problem in the government. Mrs. Schutter said the workshop stressed that any congressional candidate who said he could "get more for his district" because he was a friend of the administration was practicing political blackmail. Resolutions adopted by the convention supported the right to work law; asked for daylighl saving time only from Memorial day to Labor day; resented the piling up of huge surplus from the double collection of taxes this year by the Hughes admin istration; supported sub-district ing for legislative representa tion. Marc Moors accepted 48 vot _ng machines shipped in last week for voting in this fall's primary and general elections The machines are stored in the county shed on south Phillip and at the Algona city hall. One machine is' now on display at the courthouse and vo ers' cantehave-'-lnstruction-in -vje- ting by asking the county auditor's office to show the machine. The new machines may be used for the first time in the Algona city vote on the proposition to have cable television franchise in Algona. This vote comes up in June. Algonians who form the corporation asking for the franchise have not yet determined whether to mace use of the machines or have a paper ballot as in the past. Both the republican and democratic leaders in the county are a bit apprehensive about voter reaction to the machines.

This could cause some stay at homes who do not vote and this could affect the election results particularly in the precincts which vote heavily for one ticket. Also some people will be afraid to try to split their ticket fearing to spoil their ballot. This can afiect both tickets for there is considerable uneasiness among voters of both parties on the question of the Viet Nam war and inflation, both national problems but with strong political undertones. Prior to elections the machines must be checked by the auditor, accompanied by a representative of each party, and the machine sealed so it can not be tampered with.

(These figures come from school offices in the Corwith-Wesley, Britt, LuVerne and Kanawha schools.) '•Of course", she continues, 'the screenings are open to all children who have not been screened, between the ages of 3 and 12."
