Bruns against Darrol W, Bruns, is a divorce action. The couple were' married June 4, 1940, at Fairmont. They now have two children. The plaintiff charges cruel and inhuman treatment, and asks custody of the two children. Coin collecting is educational, and sometimes also profitable. That is the belief of Louis Ferguson, son of Mrs. W. K. Ferguson, recently released .from the army. Recently he showed part of his collection of 2,000 coins and paper money to 'the Algona Rotary club, and told some of his experiences during 20 years of eoin collecting.

A $10,000 .suii.':forv:'daihages::was' filed in the Webstcr'.'cpunty district court last week by Mrs. Hattie Phillips, former Algona resident. The suit was filed as an aftermath of a fatal automobile crash on Oct. 9. 1943, .in whcih Donna Jean Phillips, 16, was fatally injured. Suit was filed by Mrs. Phillips against Vincent Sheker, father of the young man driving the death car. The son 'and, another girl in the car. were also killed. Case Up iii January Term J The case will be tri*d during the January term of qourt at Webster City, which opens next week. Mrs. Phillips was employed here for some tort.' years at the Elite Hat SHop and was well known, as were her two daughters, Donna Jeanne, dead, and Irma Dee, now married and living in Los Angeles. Shortly before-the fatal accident, Mrs, Phillip? had moved to Fort Dodge where she had accepted another position. Crash Cause -Not Clear The tragic accident occurred at 2:30 a. m. as the two girls and two boys were returning from Waterloo, where they attended a football game between Fort Dodge and West Waterloo. In the other car was a paratrooper home on furlough, who was injured but not fatally. Full details of how; the accident occurred were never made clear but will evidently be brought out folly in court, Donna Jeanne would have been 17 the day after she was killed. She was a senior at Fort Dodge high, but had attended Algona high for the preceding three years.
