ft-AI§d*»c», (la.) Upper D«« Moin« fhorsdoy, Feb. 1, 1968 Irvington Men Establish Hog Farrowing Operation Two young Irvington men, Mike Frankl, left, and Dennis Cumberland, have established a hog farrowing and nursery operation new to this area in a recently constructed building just west of Irvington. The business has been named MIDEN, Inc., and features a completely controlled invironment for hogs until they reach a weight of approximately 40 Ibs. This method of hog farrowing is the first of its type in this area. MIDEN is holding an open house Tuesday, Feb. 6, in conjunction with Honeggers' and Company of Fairbury, HI., a firm which specializes in the building and feeding of confinement operations for livestock. Honeggers' is represented in this area by Don Krause, a former Algonan who now lives in Cedar Rapids. The two owners and operators of the firm are both well-known in Kossuth County. Frankl and his wife, the former Jan Grandgenett, are lifelong residents of this area. Cumberland, a graduate of Iowa State University, from Lament, la., is a former county Extension assistant. Both men are 24 and members of the Kossuth County Pork Producers. Actual farrowing will begin early in March. The operation calls for 48 sows in 38-day cycles. Frankl and Cumberland eventually hope to farrow about 5,000 hogs per year. Complete details of the open house are advertised in this Issue of The Upper Des Moines. School Board Buys Ten More Acres Of Ground Following an open meeting Monday afternoon at Algona High School, the school board, superintendent and architect went into a closed private session at which time a final decision was made with regard to heating and air- conditioning for the new Algona High School. Also authorized was a contract for the purchase of 10 more acres of land, adjoining the present new high school site on the east, from Louis Ferstl. Purchase price was approximately $15,000,Supt. Laing said, with purchase to be by a special site levy, as approved in the school budget of last August. Thus the purchase of the land runs at $1,500 an acre. The Board of Education accepted a plan for the proposed new high school involving dual- type heating and ventilating rooftop units which would use a natural gas-fired hot water heating system and electric power system, making the academic and school lunch areas air-conditioned for all seasons when needed. The decision was arrived at af- you expect more from Standard . and you get it!' 'STEADY' 'PATRONAGE' means BETTER CARE for your car V CHUCK BEHR'S STANDARD SERV. Algona, Iowa ter many weeks of intensive study and following thorough discussion. Present at the meeting Monday were Cliff Prall, architect, and Jack Carson, consulting engineer, both of Des Moines, who summarized estimated costs, both capital and operational, for alternate systems of heating and ventilating the proposed building. Discussed, among other types of heating and ventilating, were gas roof-top heating with fuel- oil stand by; electric heating and ventilation; and a total energy system. Original costs, installation and operating costs were thoroughly compared, and a decision was made during an executive session. In a little more layman's language, the heating setup will be one where a boiler on the ground floor heats water which is pumped to coils on the roof, where blowers operated by electricity will send warm air in the winter to various parts of the new structure. In the summer the same coils will be refrigerated and cool air instead of warm distributed as desired. Next meeting, for routine business, will be Tuesday, Feb. 6, at 4 p.m. At that time the board will receive bids on fuel oil, gasoline, buses, and will hear preliminary proposals on the 1968-69 salary schedules.

Birth Decline Shown In County, Past 15 Years According to figures released by County Clerk Alma Pearson this week, classes in all schools in Kossuth county should get smaller (not larger) when the crop of babies born during 1967 reaches the age of five. Her statistics, which go all the way back to 1954, show only 207 babies born in Kossuth last year, compared to 445 in '53. Percentage-wise, that's a dip of 53 from the first year covered in the state. The year 1954 also showed 445 babies born in Kossuth, but since that time, with only one exception, there have been less born each succeeding year. That exception was 1963 when 315 were born, compared with 314 a year earlier. There were only 214 infants born in 1966. Based on the number of high schools in the county now (and by the time those youngsters reach that level in their education there may be less), graduating classes in 1983 and 1984 won't be very large. She also has complete figures on marriages, divorces" and deaths in the county. And in 1966 and 1967, more persons died in the county than were born here. For some years, births nearly tripled deaths, but for the past several years there has been very little gain. Here are the complete figures: YEAR MARRIAGES DIVORCES BIRTHS DEATHS 1953 1954 1955 1956 1957 1958 1959 1960 1961 1962 1963 1964 1965 1966 1967 163 180 203 166 188 184 188 183 168 149 122 161 148 160 179 13 12 15 19 11 12 8 16 19 20 23 25 18 17 14 445 445 403 393 385 376 36i 347 314 315 289 239 214 207 170 176 203 231 223 197 230 188 224 253 161 207 218 209 The statistics make it very difficult to figure out how a special census here recently could show such rapid growth in the city of Algona, especially when the county census is dipping - and also indicate there will be plenty of room in school classrooms in a few years. gnnifmiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuj luiiiiiiiiuTimjitiiiiimnrmiiiiWiiiiiiiiiii IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE STATE OF IOWA IN AND FOR KOSSUTH COUNTY Probate No. 9280 NOTICE OF APPOINTMENT OF ADMINISTRATOR IN THE MATTER OF THE ESTATE OF Anthony J.

THE WEEK'S LETTER: "My girlfriend and I have been good friends for a year now. We haven't had one fight or argument Last month we both found out that she is 14 months older than I am. It doesn't seem to bother her but I have been talking to other people and they say I should be older than she. It didn't bother me until everybody said I should be older. What do you think?" OUR REPLY: How old are you? This is something we would want to know before giving you a full opinion. If you are both well into your teen years, the difference in age is relatively unimportant Where adults are concerned, a two-year age difference is hardly some- thing to talk about. What we are saying, in simple terms, is this: When you are young, in your formative years, an age difference is important Girls mature, as a rule, at an earlier age. The average girl is thinking about boys when boys of her own age are either too bashful or too concerned with baseball, sports etc., to give girls a second thought This situation changes, of course, as boys get into their teen years. If you like someone, a two year difference of age — one way or the other — should made no difference, h»»f 0 lMfl«g« profcl.m yov MiK lo . or on ofei«rvgti«n 19 matt, odd'tu r»u l«tttr to fOI AND AIOUT TfENACEIS.
