(Photo by Glenn's Studio) Busy On Plans For Hospital Fund Drive The Algona hospital committee, preparing to launch a $150,000 fund drive to modernize and improve St. Ann Hospital, has been meeting daily in an attempt to organize plans for the campaign. Committee chairman Harry Greenberg told the Upper Des Moines that the immediate problem is to find housing for the fund drive director, Richard Briscoe. Briscoe, a representative of Thomas Finn Associates of Kansas City, will need a furnished three or four bedroom house or apartment for his family during the drive, which is expected to last about two months. Anyone knowing of suitable housing is asked to contact Algona mayor William Finn or Harry Greenberg. Briscoe will arrive in Algona July 31 to begin preliminary work in organizing the drive and volunteer workers. Chairman Greenberg asked that parties interested in providing office help or general fund drive work contact Greenberg or Mayor Finn. The committee expects to need one worker for every four doners, so quite a bit of volunteer help from county residents will be required. The Benedictine Sisters of Sioux City, noted for their hospital administration in the state, will assume operation of St. Ann. The primary goal cf the drive is to install a centralized air conditioning unit for the hospital. Also needed are a reserve power unit for emergency, new lighting systems for the operating and emergency rooms, an intercom system, parking lot and road repair, some electric beds, relocation of the X-ray lab, a walk- in freezer and cooler in the kitchen, additional lab equipment and a blood bank. Scholarships For Two 1967 AHS Graduates T. M. Ingersoll, attorney in Cedar Rapids, an alumnus of Algona High School of the class of 1921, has renewed his contribution for two scholarships for the .current high school graduating class of 1967.

Dennis is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Georg and Kathy is the daughter of Rev. and Mrs. Walter Morz. Mr. Ingersoll was an honor graduate of his high school class of 1921 and continued his undergraduate and law training at the University of Iowa and has been practicing law in the firm of Shuttleworth and Ingersoll of Cedar Rapids for a number of years.
