16-Algona, (la.) Upper Des Maine* Thursday, Dec. 14, 1967 Algona City Dump Rats Are Losing, Says Mayor Algona is winning the war against rats at the city dump. That is the opinion of Mayor Bill Finn, who as the mayor probably hears more about rats - and the city dump in general- than anyone else connected with local government, although City Clerk Dave Smith also runs afoul of problems along the way as well as the mayor. Finn said that the larger doses of poison lait, plus closing of the dump during the night and on Sundays, seems to have left the rats with less'chances to lie disturbed, and hence more time to consume the poison bait. The mayor has also been delving some into literature pertaining to "rats and their habits, and he ran across a new method of eliminating them which involves putting a liquid poison on bait, which when consumed makes the rats sterile with an eventual end to their reproductive capacities, which normally are quite rapid. So far, however, this is only a thought. "And in conclusion," says the mayor, "the rats are losing." 26 Complete Civil Defense Course Here Twenty-six people recently completed a 30-hour course in Civil Defense management. This course was offered by the state Civil Defense office to give leaders from the urban and rural areas a better understanding of how to use the program of Civil Defense in case a need arises. Jay Murray from Iowa State University presented material covering subjects from tornados, shelter, radiological monitoring, Civil Defense adult education in schools, medical self-help and others in an informing and interesting manner. Mr. Murray and Walt Saunders further explained how our county might qualify for matching funds for part of these programs. The following individuals completed the course: / Merle Chamberlain, Ted Charles, Kenneth D. Crandall, Galen DeValois, Stan Gardner, Curtis Haahr, Wayne Keith, Royal Nold, Jim Peterson and Lawrence Riedel, Algona; Paul Ferguson, Titonka; Arnold Hansen, Fenton; Robert Jongewaard and Louis Simpson, Wesley; C. S. Kluger and Dale Wegener, Swea City; Bert Ramus, LuVerne; Wilfred Schmeling, Whittemore; Lawrence Ternes, Ledyard; Wm. Conner and Norman Lynch, Milford; Orel Young and Winona Young, Estherville; Loren M. Greiner, Emmetsburg; J. Russell Steil, Mallard; and Louie Schafer, West Bend. These people are now better informed on how to help the community implement some of these programs. The local Civil Defense organization is currently working on a country-wide warning system. In addition to this system we are encouraging a Civil Defense Adult Education course for high school juniors or seniors. This is a twelve-hour course and the state department of Public Instruction encourages it to be offered to high school students. Nativity Scene To Open Here This Sunday The well-known Kaib Nativity Scene, shown each year here in the Methodist Men's Club building at the fairgrounds, will be open to the public for 15 days, beginning this Sunday, Dec. 17.
