LJanan represented lounty Supervisor A. J. Kollasch as legal counsel on behalf of the persons signing petitions from seven.county townships and opposing the procurement of voting machines. The' petition said that the expanse of the voting machines would not justify their procurement, and that there was no adequate, storage available. They requested tnat the voting machines not be installed and that printed ballots be used for the 1966 primary and general elections. The same petitions had been filed in March 1966 and on April 1 the Board of Supervisors rejected them by a vote of 3-2, and 48 voting matehines were leased for $150 each.

It is the responsibility of the trustees to find a voting place, and several have not as yet. the trustees do not find a voting place, then it is up to the county board of supervisors. Several members of the board said they thought they would be able to locate polling places it the trustees did not. They also said if storage space was not available in the township, the machines could be transferrec to another part of. the county which has such space after the election. Kollasch did not raise any for mal legal question, and letters were being prepared Friday to send to the township trustees asking them to report voting places. Townships filing petitions were: Ledyard, Springfield, Eagle, Grant, Lincoln, Hebron and The main argument seemed to Harrison.

City police were called to investigate. 8 more cases filed on ag tax credit law Eight more cases attacking the contsitutionality of the 196b legislature law on agricultural land tax credit were filed in district court last weekend. The cases concern situations where one party in ownership of land lives outside the state of Iowa. Under the 1965 law this would disqualify the land from receiving the agricultural land tax credit. Filing last week were cases by L. A. Winkel as administrator; Orville Brandt and others; M. G. Bourne and others; Ael- redd A. and Eleanor R. Hildman; Preston M. and Maggie A. Clark Trust; Dorothy Hutchison and Isabel Drummond; Laura Clark Reybold ahd others; and Arlene Arndorfer. In all cases the board of supervisors had rejected appeals. All cases asked the new law be declared unconstitutional under several sections of the state and federal constitutions, i The new law has stirred up a hornet's nest of objections particularly in estate cases where an heir may live outside the state thus depriving the in-state heirs from benefit of the credit. The agricultural land tax cer- dit is an amount appropriated by the state to pay a pro-rated part of school taxes on agricultural land above 15 mills. Gains in sales tax paid by towns in area Most area towns showed increases in the sales tax report for the quarter ending Dec. 31, 1965 as compared with the previous year ending Dec. 31, 1964. Algona jumped from $83,205 to $91,316, and in general all Kossuth towns showed healthy increases. Only exception was Burt which showed a slight loss. The amounts paid in sales tax For area towns exclusive of Kossuth are: Stops for drink DECIDING THAT swimming is pretty hard work, six year old Larry Lovstad, son of the Emil Lovstads, Algona, takes a drink from the man-sized water fountain at the wading pool in Algona.

The case is based on an Iowa law making sellers and others giving liquor responsible for damages incurred because of injury by an intoxicated person. According to the petition Kenneth Davis and Kathy Davis, both minors, were among a group attending a wedding anniversary party a year ago at the Dean Meyers home for the Craig Meyers. The petition claims both of the Meyers gave intoxicating liquors to a Roger Rieffer, who the petition says became intoxicated The petition says a car driven by Roger went through Elmore at 90 miles an hour and crashed attempting to round a curve north of Elmore at 125 miles an hour. Davis asks $25,000 for death of his son plus $15,000 exemplary damages, and $1000 for injury to liis daughter Kathy plus $1000 exemplary damages. They were passengers in the car. The Iowa law, popularly call- the Dram Shop Act, says: "Every wife, child, parent, Ycung CM victim guardian, employer, or other person who shall be injured in person or property or means of support by any intoxicated person, or in consequence of the intoxication, habitual or otherwise, of any person, shall have a right of action in his or her own name against any person who shall, by selling or giving to another contrary to the provisions of this title any intoxicating liquors, cause the intoxication of such person, for all damages actually sustained, as well as exemplary damages." Hearing on a writ of habeas corpus was set for this Tuesday in district court. The action was brought by Bonita J. Metzen against Raymond W. Metzen for the custody of two children 5 and 3 years old. According to the petition the plaintiff has a separation action in a Wisconsin court which granted custody of the children to her. The petition says her husband removed the children against her will, and she asks the district court to give temporary custody during pendency of her separation action.
