Food Stamp Turnout Gratifying Tuesday, May 9, 1967 Algona (la.) Upper D«« Meines-11 moved into their new house built on their farm. Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Schwletert visited Sunday afternoon In the Clarence Baum home at Blue Earth. Mrs. Stanley Ruse, Mrs. Donald Ringsdorf, Leona Haase, Flossie Bartlett and Agnes Stewart were among those attending a party last Wednesday evening in the home of Mrs. Arthur Bartlett.

Commencement speaker will be Bernard Lewellyn, professor at Mankato State College. The valedictorian and salutatorlan will be announced at commencement. Cresco Boys The April meeting of the Cresco Boys was called to order by President Larry Rochleau. Roll call was naming one chemical used on your farm and where it is stored. It was answered by 15 members. Talks were given by Mark Elbert, Leslie Simpson and Jim Hungate. Hosts were David and Peggy Sabin. Food Stamps went on sale at the courthouse here for the first time Thursday — and, according to Mrs. Helen Huber, county Director of Welfare, "the results were most gratifying." It is expected (as has been the case in other counties where the Stamp plan has been put Mo use) that more and more families all the time will be purchasing and using the stamps. The turnout here Thursday, 37 families, was considered a very good start. Those families spent $1,371 in cash to purchase $1,885 worth of the stamps, which are redeemable in all grocery stores who are participating in the plan. Mrs. Huber pointed out that practically every area of the county was represented by the 37 families, who indicated they would use them in stores in their own communities. In the above photo, Mrs. Marvel Immerfall, left, County Overseer of the Poor, Marilyn Rochleau, center, stenographer in the county welfare office, and Mrs. Huber are shown as they sold stamps to an unidentified lady at the left. Stamps will be sold at the courthouse twice each month -about the 5th and 15th -to coincide with pensions, welfare aid, aid to dependent children and other types of aid. The Food Stamp plan is being used to replace the former surplus commodity set-up-and is aimed in part at giving recipients a feeling of pride which was lacking in the commodity plan.

The flushing crews will take every precaution to eliminate as much of this as possible, but in order to clear the mains of accumulated rust and to make sure that all fire hydrants are in the best possible condition, a certain amount of disturbance is unavoidable. The purity and safety of the water will not be affected. It will contain nothing harmful, so if it happens in your neighborhood do not be alarmed. After the job is finsihed your water will soon return to its usual sparkle and clearness. Flushing will be done on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, May 10th, 11th, and 12th, weather permittiny.
