(UDM Flashfotos) Football Dropped After Slim Seasons At Burt The end of an era, at least for the time being, came at Burt Tuesday when public school officials announced the high school there has dropped football as an interscholastic sport, iKjgiiuiing with the 19G7 fall season. Harry Haven, Supt. of schools at Burt, made the announcement, ending football there after a number of years. While success on the gridiron at Burt has been very limited in recent years, the Bears formerly were able to give most schools in the State Line Conference a rugged battle. During recent seasons, Burt has been hampered in its football program by a lack of squad members, often having far less than two full teams in uniform. Sears SKAHS. KOI.HITK AM) ( <).

" for the State Amateur Athletic Union agegroupand open swimming championships. Algona swimmers making the trip were Shannon Lynch, Brian Will, Beanie Chrischilles, Buckshot Nielsen, John Peterson, Paul Martin, Cathy Straub, Sue Walker, Ryan Lynch, Kevin Lynch and Jim Johnson.

The best performance by an Algona swimmer was a sixth place by Buckshot Nielsen in the Boys 11-12 50 meter backstroke, with a time of 43.4.

Monday, Aug. 14, Algona will take on Spencer at the Algona pool. This meet will also start at 7 p.m. and should prove a tough match for Algona, since Spencer is undefeated this summer.

City, School Budgets Are Discussed Here Two very important budget hearings were held here last night (Wednesday)- the proposed 1968 spending slates for the city of Algona and for the Algona Community School District. To date, they are the most important (and largest) inthearea- with other hearings scheduled later - including the Kossuth county budget Aug. 14 at 8 a.m. at the courthouse. The city's total budget, including $1,347,000 Municipal Utilities, for next year is $1,917,832- and despite the fact the total budget is higher by some $345,000, the mileage levy is down to 29.44 from 34.75 during the current year. The school budget story is reversed, with the millage rate expected to rise to 47 mills from the current 38.97, with four mills needed to meet new principal and interest for the May bond issue. The county proposal shows $352,000 more listed in expenditures, with the total budget expected to be $2,780,500, with the amount necessary to be raised by taxation up $30,050 to a total of $1,297,050.
