16-Algona, (la.) Upper Des Maine* Tuesday, August 22, 1967 Searching For Girl Scout Help At Burt BURT - Girl Scouting will be starting again as soon as school starts. This year we want to have three troops in Burt- a Brownie Girl Scout troop for 2nd and 3rd grade girls; a Junior Girl Scout troop for 4th, 5th and 6th grades and a Cadette Girl Scout troop for 7th, 8th and 9th grade girls. In order to do this we will be needing more leaders and troop committee people; We should have two leaders and three troop committee members for each troop. The leaders of course have the greatest responsibility as they work with the girls every week. Troop committee members could be fathers as well as mothers as they often help with transportation and other extra jobs. In order to get these troops organized, a meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 22, at 2 p.m. at the Town Hall. Anyone who would like to help is urged to attend. While mothers of girls involved are most often interested, these positions are not limited just to mothers - or even to relatives of the girls. Burt Farmer Has Top Barrow A well-known Burt Duroc hog raiser, Webb Stewart, and his son, Dave, again copped top honors at the North Iowa Fair at Mason City this year. A 208-pound Duroc barrow, shown by Dave, took the championship - a repeat of the title they captured for the first time in 1966. The appearance was only the third at Mason City for the Stewarts— and two out of three is pretty fair. The elder Mr. Stewart, who with Dave has shown many winners at shows all over the mid- west, took second in the lightweight class, also. 300 COUNT TYPING PAPER Champion Lamb Showman BOBBY DODDS, Algona 4-H youth, was named champion show* man for lambs, at the Kossuth Fair last week in 4-H competition, and is shown here with his sharp-looking lamb entry. 19 Into Service From County; 5 Draftees Five young men were recently inducted into military service through Selective Service in Kossuth county, and a number of voluntary enlistments were also reported.
