16-Algono, (lo.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, July 18, 1967 OEO Board Member Quits Job; Election Is Held A meeting of the Upper Des Moines Opportunity, Inc., was attended by about 35 persons in the assembly room of the county courthouse Wednesday evening. At 7 p. m., members of low income families elected members to the board, including Mrs. Kramer, Mr. Giddings, Mrs. Dudding, Lawrence Schiltz, Mrs. Henneman and Mrs. Herb Kaiser, according to Joe Straub, local attorney. At the 8 o'clock meeting, a letter of resignation from Oliver S. Carlson, former member of the advisory committee, was read. His letter is as follows: "At this time I respectfully submit my resignation as a member of the advisory committee of the Kossuth County Upper Des Moines Opportunity, Inc. My reason for resigning is: In all clear conscience I cannot be a member of a board where very little opportunity affords itself to freely discuss the desirability of and the use of federal money coming into Kossuth county for poverty. I am especially concerned for the really poor people in Kossuth, as they are,, in my opinion, not benefiting materially from the money that is being spent. "It was my opinion from the very outset that there would be too many high salaried employees and that too much money would be paid in administration leaving the people who really need assistance as underprivileged after the huge expenditures as before. "To accept available federal funds may not always be wise. To accept federal funds because someone else will take them if we don't is sadistic, deceiving and un-American. "Also, federal programs are a duplication of what the state and county are already doing. "Until such time as Kossuth county and/or the local citizenry feel that this project can be handled for the benefit of the underprivileged, I wish to have no part of its administration whatsoever. Respectfully submitted, Oliver S. Carlson." Re-elected to the board for three-year terms were Harry Naffziger, LuVerne, Rev. Robt. Lorenz and Steve McCall, Algona. Mrs. Victor Frideres of Algona was elected to fill the unexpired term of Mr. Carlson and to hold office until next year's election. Parcel Post Back On 6-Day Delivery Here Postmaster Ed Farrell announced Friday that parcel post deliveries in Algona were expanded from five to six days a week as of Saturday. This is in line with a recent directive from Postmaster General Lawrence F. O'Brien following the signing of the Post Office Department appropriation bill by President Johnson. The legislation contains an $8.5 million item for restoration of the six-day a week delivery which had been cut back in May, 1964, as an economy measure. Nearly 5000 cities are affected, Postmaster Farrell said. The Algona postal official noted that the improved service will remove an inequity for many business and residential routes. Postal customers served by "motorized" letter carriers have been receiving six-day deliveries all along. Customers living on routes serviced by foot carriers have received larger parcels from a five-day a week parcel post route covered by a truck. Carriers on foot only deliver small packages.
