Quinn was appointed to the board as a representative of the county board of supervisors. Myron L. Johnson, another supervisor, was appointed lo replace him en the Social Welfare Board. Assistant Fired. The trouble began some time ago when Doreen Fraser, typist- stcnrgrapher in the off ice, of Mrs. Clotilda.Hutchison,'director of the Social /Welfare board, requested a 30-day extension of leave on a doctor's recommendation. Miss Frasor had completed a 30-day leave allowed her, but her doctor ..told hor that she should take 30 more days for reasos of health. Mr. Quinn, as one of board members, favored giving her tire extra .30 days. Mrs. Hutchison objected, ar-1 wanted to dismiss the assistant. While this matter was more or le$s .UMie.b&te.vMiss .Eraser^e.ce.w.- ed- 1 a*letter from Mrs/Hutchison notifying her of her dismissal Quinn said that he was never notified of any discharge, nor did. 'he approve the notice of discharge. Condemns Wranglinsr.. Other members of the board, M. L. Button and Mrs. D. D, Monlux of Algona, were .-reported 'by .Mrs. Hutchison" to have approved the letter. ,. , ; - ...' Miss Fraser 'herself submitted a letter of resignation, Saturday She said that under existing regulations she should have 'been given a chance to resign within 30 days, which she did. "There is too much wrangling <toing on over the management of the Social Welfare office," said Quinn In asking the supervisors to appoint someone else in his place City Electric Plant Has Percent Increase In 5 Years Publication of the forty-eighth annual report by the municipal electric and water department o£ the City of Algona disclosed that the total kilowatt hours generated by the city municipal light plant has shown better than a fifty per cent increase in five years. A total of 6,868,185 kilowatt hours were generated in 1945. In 1940 the total was. 4,391,825.' Since 1935 the electrical load has practically tripled. Net Profit $32,889. During 1945 the total revenue from the plant was.$131,267.03 and the total operating expense was $71,478.22. .; .- Th'is operating expense includes the maintenance of street lighting and signal systems. . . After deducting all operating expenses, income and sal&s tax deductions and taking a depreciation for the year, the plant showed the year 1945 of a net profit for $32,889.69. A total of. $6,7 19.11 in free services was rendered, and a balance qi $26,170.58 went into the surplus of the- electric fund. Delivery of a 'new 1500 horsepower diesel is expected this fall. The new engine is sd built that it can -be changed into a 2,200 horsepower unit by the addition of a supercharger. ' . With knowledege that Algona's growth is certain, the, city council and Supt, C. U. Pollard placed an order for the new unit last spring. While the prisoner-of-war camp has closed, the loss from that load is expected to be more than taken; up when building materials are available and new construction is completed 'in the city. Plant. Value $737,621. On the basis of figures in the v 1945 report, a valuation of $737,(321.01 is placed on the plant at present, and a net worth of slight-' jy less than that. : A reserve for depreciation of $250,000 is canned at present. Biggest single item of expense in city operation of'the plant is for engine fuel, with labor second. The city's water plant has a net worth of $297,396, and operated at a net profit of $9,002.65 for the year 1945- ' " Algona's municipal electric and water departments have made an enviable record, and the annual report shows them- in -excellent shape financially, and keeping up to the minute in equipment;and. ability to handle .the future demand for current. ^solution b;,i the U.

Samp that he had his three nephews along with him last Tuesda^ afternoon. Otherwise he might have been buried in a gravel pit accident. He had been hauling gravel from. a pit near Irvington to the Andrew Godfredson farm. In the forenoon he was accompanied by his nephew. 7 years old. In the afternoon, however, his three nephews Dick, Jerry, and Wayne, sons of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Samp of Algona, went alon.^ for the ride and the fun. 'While loading gravel at the pit, the gravel broke loose and slid down the cliute covering the back end of the truck and pinning Lowell between the truck and the oncoming gravel. • The three boys swung into action and frantically clawed the gravel away from their uncle as it kept pouring down. Lowell was buried to his waist but boys prevented it from getting any higher. He was finally pried free, and •although somewhat banged up he managed to get the truck as far as the Greenfield filling station at the 169 intersection with the Irvington roa'd, where he obtained assistance, and was- taken to the Kossuth hospital. His right leg was badly injured, but x-rays proved no bones were broken and he was taken to his home, where he is now convalescing.
