School Board Reorganized Monday Night In regular session Monday evening, the board of education of the Algona Community School District reorganization took place. Russell Medin, Whittemore, was re-elected president, with Robert Black re-elected vice president, both by unanimous ballot. The re-organization voting followed the swearing-in of Mrs. Melvin Bay and Robert Black, both recently re-elected to the board for three-year terms. Vaughn Rising, secretary to the board, administered the 'oath. Accepted by the board were adjustments of seven teacher contracts, to conform with the regular salary schedule. The change were made due either to additional summer training or additional assignments during the present school year. Supt. O. B. Laing discussed the programs under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Local share of funds for the current year is expected to be approximately $34,000 after a deletion of the local share of an allotment, previously approved by the board, to a cooperative county-wide program for special education. One program to be applied for under ESEA funds, with application to be approved by the state board of education, is a continuation of remedial reading for summer school students to participate in the same program during the current school year. In the program are approximately 400 students, about equally divided between parochial and public schools. The program is applied for and administered by law through the public schools, which are enabled to loan books and supplies of various sorts to the parochial schools. Also to be continued is remedial reading for students of high school level. At present, instructors are Mrs. George Sefrit at Algona High and Mrs. Logue at Garrigan. Approved was a contract for Frank Brusie, director of adult education, with a salary of $1,200 and an additional $100 for mileage. Pertinent to the building program, it is expected that Cliff Prall, architect, will meet with the staff next Tuesday, pursuant to plans for the proposed new high_ school. The local school board has toured several schools in the area and discussed their findings and opinions with Mr. Prall, who accompanied them. Discussed at the meeting were various aspects and opinions of the members of the board. It is probable that plans for the new school will be ready to present to the board for discussion at their next meeting, which has tentatively been set for Monday evening, Oct. 16. • 7 GUESS WHAT DIAMOND'S HAS FOR COLD WEATHER • • * Price* Good Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Monday Thursday, Sept. 28, 1967 Algona (la.)

Hospital Fund At 86 Percent Of Final Goal Harry L. Greenberg, Algona, general chairman for the St. Ann Hospital Campaign Improvement Fund, has announced the program is now in its final stages and that all associated with the program are optimistic. Mr. Greenberg said, "We now have $172,798 subscribed to the program through personal contact by our volunteer organization. Some subscriptions yet remain to be finalized, and these are understandable, as the majority of them require more than individaul attention and their responses are expected to be slow. Too, a number of people who are away from town are to be seen upon their return. Additionally, we also have some few reports to be made from our workers in Algona, Whittemore and south Kossuth." He added, "We regret it is impossible every person in the county cannot be called upon and personally be given the opportunity to assist In this Important project. Because of manpower limitations, we must resort to "mailing to them. The final action of the campaign was instituted Tuesday when mailings to all county residents who were not contacted personally by the campaign workers were sent out. It is expected everyone in this group will receive their request by the end of this week, and with everyone seemingly realizing the importance of improving our community hospital to the highest of standards it is expected the response to this appeal will help us exceed the $200,000 needed to accomplish the job we set out to do." Mr. Greenberg further stated, "It is our hope that every Individual who receives the request by mail will respond to it quickly and to the best of his or her ability. There is a definite need that we do exceed the goal. One must realize that the program should receive an over- subscription of the $200,000 in order that It finally produce that amount for the hospital's improvements, ft is only reasonable to expect that some shrinkage will be encountered against the total subscribed, as a number of people who plan to give over the 36 months will move away from the area, others will suffer reverses and will not be able to continue payments before the expiration of this period, and as this program is not imposing any binding, legal obligation on anyone the balances on these subscriptions will not be collectible." In summing up the program, he mentioned the hospital presently is in the process of forming a board to be composed of business men who will represent all factions and faiths, to advise the hospital's adminstratlon in the future. Names of the individual members will be announced as soon as the acceptance is complete. One of the first considerations of this group will be the disbursement of the funds of this program, as they are received, for the improvements needed. Priorities for the needs will be a board decision. Mr. Greenberg and the hospital administration asked that every individual volunteer who assisted in the program and that every person contributing to the program be thanked for their efforts and their assistance in making the program a success. Set Oct. I As CCC Crop Loan Deadline Richard I. Anderson, Donald J. Bollig, and George W. Wolf, chairman and members of the Kossuth Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation (ASC) county committee, are reminding farmers who have eligible 1966 crop corn and soybeans on their farms not already under Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) loan, may obtain loans for these crops until Oct. 2. The Sept. 30 deadline has been extended. 1966 corn and soybeans placed under loan will earn storage payments beginning Aug. 1,1967. In the years before 1964, loan applications could not be accepted after June 30. Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman has been emphasizing loan deadline provisions to help farmers hold grain on their farms and avoid excessive marketings at harvest time. "Considerable use of this authority will be a great aid in orderly marketing. We strongly urge all farmers with free grain eligible for loans to use this tool to help raise commodity prices," the committee said. Farmers who participated in the 1966 feed grain program can seal corn. All farmers can seal soybeans. 65 Stitches A 10-year-old Ringsted girl is recuperating this week after having 65 stitches Saturday to close cuts suffered in a motorcycle accident.
