Si (Duke) Kinsey family of ^Algona were thrilled Wednesday night, Mar. 29, when a jet airliner, piloted bjt their son Bob of Buena Park. I Calif., flew over Algona flashing its lights. The jet, which was on a regular flight from Chicago to Los Angeles, was flying at 30,000 feet 'over Kossuth county. Bob, who has been a pilot for Continental Air Lines for the past 10 years, was at the cop- trols of the 707 jet. He called his parents f,rorn Chicago at 8:15 p.m. that night, just before the airliner took off. for California. He told his family that due to weather conditions it would be possible to slant north of the usual path and pass over Algona — and he did, at 9:20 p.m. Jean (Mrs. Ferris Miner), Algona, signalled with a flashlight when she saw the airliner, Jt Is possible Bob saw the signal, because another sister, Mrs Dick Pool, Denver, Colo., signalled to her brother in a similiar manner a couple of years ago and be saw her signal from the same-height, According to persons here, Bob was right on tareet over his parents' home on North Minnesota street — 30,000 feet above the chimney on the house. Bob resides with his family in California and makes regular runs for Continental on the Chi- cago-L.A. route.

Holding Action By NFO Effects Market Totals The effect of a holding action, begun on cattle, hogs and sheep by the National Farmers Organization Monday, has not 'been fully determined.

CAROLINA — Jotting down notes along .ne eastern seaboard makes a miscellaneous collection of items, bul some of them might be of interest regardless. There is an abundance of pre-conceived notions' as to what the ,arolinas are like, not all of them correct. But before iwe 'leave Florida let us report that John Kain and i enjoyed every minute of it. Even though hamburger or ground beef ells for 99 cents a. lb. We crossed from Lakeland to Daytona Beach, passing the famous speedway, and drove along the beach for several miles. It was John's first glimpse of the Atlantic Ocean and we celebrated; the occasion by taking off shoes and socks, roiaing up our pants, and walking in the surf. Bancroft Farmer Injured In Fall On Steel Rod Screal De Geeter of Bancroft, was injured seriously Tuesday morning as he was helping his son, Melvin, grind feed on their farm one mile southwest of Bancroft. He had climbed up in the crib to shove corn down when the 2 by 6 he was standing on gave way and he fell six feet onto a stee} brace rod. He was taken by ambulance to Mercy hospital at Mason, 'City where he was,found, to havf suffered a broken pelvis and'verte- bra and possible internal injuries. ^ 9 uU ? by chl *nee we dropped in at Snack Jack's Barbecue along the beach, and ordered a short sandwich ... it turned out to be seven unches high . . . overnight stop at St. Augustine, billed as the Oldest city in America.

Without knowing H, we happened to stumble in on a high class beatnik hangout, where a half dozen or more took turns being in the orchestra. We counted three different pian > players, and one young fellow had a bass viol maide out of an oar with three strings attached. It Worked fine. But the payoff was the clothing ensemble worn by the college-age boys . . . they were attired almost without exception (and we were exceptions) in ia sport coat, shirt with tie, and what looked to us like a pair of shorts, BUT NOBODY WORE PANTS! The young ladies wore ordinary and less informal costume, one that would be ap- proprimte on State Street for the matter. St, Augustine hw been ruled undej four flags, and its old fort was bui4t before the American colonies decided to scrap the British.

The large group of interested citizens attending the meeting were divided about 50-50 on the question of whether or not Rover should be allowed to wander at large.

National Awards Nat'l Editorial Ass'n Annual Better Newspaper Contests Second Place Nat'l Editorial "General Excellejtge" Recent enactment of an emergency feed grain program by trie U.S. Department of Agriculture, which set advance national average support prices for feed grains, has caused a buzz of excitement in the midwest. To date, many persons have not learned too much about that program. A county' ASC meeting in the Garrigan high school auditorium here tonight (Thursday) at 7:30 p.m. may answer many questions farmers might have on their minds about ihe program. Jim Croghan, state administrator for the ASC. will explain the new feed grain bill and will answer questions from the floor which pertain to the program. Kenneth Schuman, stale president of the Farmers Union, will also speak at the meeting. . , • As outlined by Secretary of Agriculture Orville F r e c m an, here are support prices and other information about the plan: Corn, $1,20 per bushel; barley, 93 cents per bushel; grain sorghum, $1.93 per hundredweight; oats, 62 cents per bushel: and rye, $1.02 per bushel. The 1961 support prices reflect approximately 74 percent of the March parity prices for corn, oats, and barley; 78 percent for grain sorghum, and 69 percent for rye. Support" prices for 1960-crop feed grains were set at $1.06 per bushel for corn, or 65 percent of parity; 77 cents per bushel,for barley,.;,and, $1,52 ;per; hundredweight for grain'sorghum, both ' reflecting 61 percent of' parity; and 50.cents per bushel'for-bats 1 • and 90 cents per bushel-for > rye, 'both reflecting 60 percent of parity. Richard I. Anderson, County ASC chairman, pointed out that in return for increased support levels, farmers are being asked to reduce their 1961 acreages of corn and grain sorghum from last year in an effort to bring production more nearly in lino with nreds. To be eligible for support on any of the feed grains from 1961 production, corn and grain sorg- lum producers must reduce their acreage by at least 20 percent :rom average acreage of 1959 and 1960. Payments in the form of negotiable certificates redeemable in grain or the cash equivalent will be made to compensate farmers for participating in the program. The diverted acreage must not be harvested or pastured, and must be diverted to a soil-conserving use. Corn and grain sorghum producers who cooperate in tbij emergency feed grain program will be eligible for price support on their normal production from the acreage planted to these two crops, and for support on barley, oats, and rye at the announced levels. Producers of barley, oats, and rye who do not produce corn or grain sorghum will be eligible for support on their 1961 production of these crops. Producers of corn and grain sorghum who do not cooperate in the emergency feed grain program will not be eligible for support on any of the five feed grain crops. Price supports for 1961-crop oilseeds have been set at nation-, il average supports of $2.30 per sushel for soybeans and $2.80- per bushel for flaxseed. 1961 oilseed supports reflect approximately 79 percent of the March parity for soybeans and 73.5 percent of parity for flaxseed. Supports for these crops in 1960 were $1.85 per bushel for soybeans, reflecting 64 percent of parity and $2.38 per bushel for "laxseed, or 62 percent of parity. In announcing the support levels, Secretary of Agriculture Freeman said, "The 1961 support price for soybeans has been increased 45 cents per bushel from last year's support to gear production of this important oil crop into the 1961 emergency feed grain program and to meet antU cipated needs. "The requirements for vege* table oils are tremendous throuphout the world. In view of this, there is need to encourage a better balance between acreages of soybeans and of feed crops for which production is outrunning current needs." It was announced at Spencer Wednesday during a district ASC meeting that corn bushel average and payment for Kossuth counfy would be 62.6 and $39.10 and sorghum will be 51 bushels and $26.30. Neel Hill, one of three state ASC corhmitteemen, made the announcement.
