(UDM Flashfoto) Telephone Co. Summer Youth Program On According to John Claude, manager of Northwestern Bell Telephone Co. of Algona, and regional director, the company is engaged In a "Summer Youth" program. Any young person in the area wishing summer employment may dial the information operator and ask for "Summer Youth". She then will give the youth a number to call to inquire about jobs which might be available. Mr. Claude, through the Fort Dodge employment office, obtained the names of coordinating or liaison men in Algona and neighboring communities. Larry Knoll is the Algona coordinator. Names of those in other communities may be obtained by call- Ing a local Information operator. The program was developed by Bell Telephone Co. following a request from Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey, chairman of the President's Council on Youth Opportunity. For the third year, the company has also assured the U. S. Dept. of Commerce that they will participate In the "Youth Opportunity Campaign", in which employers seek to provide work and train- ing experience during the summer for as many young people as possible. Since the Bell system is a large employer of recent high school graduates, many of the youth hired during the summer will continue as permanent employees. According to Mr. Claude, the Algona office is cooperating in many youth projects and hiring young people for summer employment. One example is Glen (Bucky) Buchanan, who worked for the company for several summers. ivi! Defense Council Meets At Burt The Civil Defense council met at the Burt town hall with representatives from all of the 12 towns in Kossuth county. A. total of more than 40 people were present. Better communications and warning systems were the subjects discussed.

To do this, better planning, better use of the present facilities, plus some needed new equipment will be studied by a committee made up of a representative from each town in the county. This committee will, when their work is completed, present an over-all plan to the Civil Defense council and to the 12 towns in the county. Henry Boccella, the communications and warning officer from the state Civil Defense office attended the meeting and led the discussion, and answered many questions raised by those In attendance. Wayne Keith reported on the over-all Civil Defense program in the county. Mayor Finn, council chairman, presided at the meeting. Name Officers Leland Grove, Laurens; Mrs. LaVerne SUi-lt, Estlierville; Mrs. Barbara Booth, Spencer; and Dr. R.O. Drown, West Bend.

Library At LuVerne Needs More Money LUVERNE - The LuVerne Library building committee met at the City Hall Friday, July 14, with an architect of Fort Dodge and many others who had submitted bids. The bids for the nc-w proposed library were opened and read and the total exceeded the amount we had proposed for the project. The plan is not being dropped as there are 30 days to study the project. We have gone too far to drop the idea of a new library and we are needing the help of every one in the community and surrounding area. If you haven't already given to the Library or would like to give another gift, please do so in the next few days, every dollar will help.
