Saturday, Nov H signalled the opening of the F^ e , a f a x nt season and the woods (fields) were literally full of hunters. County Recorder Clara Walker reported Tuesday that no less than 62 non-resident licenses had been sold at the courthouse, and hunters from no less than a dozen states outside of Iowa obtained the licenses, which rangr m price from a low of $10 to Colorado residents to $26 to Minnesotans. Illinois had at least 19 hunters here — for that many got licenses. Minnesota was next with 10. And there were thousands of Jowans in the area attempting to get their limit. According to early reports — many hunters had trouble getting birds. However, one aspect, of the season was very good, — no hunters were shpt, either. 12-Page Roto Section Today With this issue of the Upper Des Moines, readers receive the 12-page Farm & Home Thanksgiving roto section. , Featured stories include changing methods in corn production, a few timely tips on Thanksgiving foods, and some early bird suggestions m the field of Christmas activities.

City Council Now Makes Decision On 8 Half Blocks By a vote of 7 to73"flflr'Algona Zoning Commission went on record, Tuesday night, as favoring re-zoning of about eight hall blocks adjacent to the present business area from multiple dwelling into a commercial business zone. The recommendation will be passed io Ihe Algona city council, which makes the final decision. If the council decides to accept the recommendation, another- public, hearing before the ouncil will be called prior to a votp on the matter. The re-zon- ng calls for amendment of exist- ng zoning ordinances. The Zoning Commission's ac- ion was taken following a two- our hearing at the City Hall urmg which persons for and jainst the proposal were heard here were some 75 present A ftition with 51 signatures from esidents of the area involved as presented. All signers were gainst the proposal. Two-Hour Discussion Basis for the action came from a request for rezoning of block 224, occupied by the old Presbyterian church. The church property has a potential buyer wno wished it for commercial use, out did not intend to exercise the option unless rezoning took place. . Because the Zoning Commis sion did not favor "spot zoning- it was decided to rezone each side of Call Street from that point west to reach the present commercial business area. However the area between the olrl Presbyterian church and the present commercial area is occupied entirely by residential lomes. The engineering firm of Rowat & Murray, which originally drew up the zoning plan in 1958, now ecommended the rezoning The irm said that now, three years fter the original zoning, it felt he original commercial zoning rea was inadequate. In the objections filed to the ezoning, Attorney Leo Casse poke on behalf of the residents n the petition. He cited increased traffic, increased confusion, increased dangers to school children, and the disruption of a presently quiet residential area in which property owners had considerable investments for homes which would suffer if the rezoning and subsequent construction of a new business building took place. Cassel said his clienjs did not agree with the engineering firm's suggestion that Algona needed further commercial zoning when as a matter of faci there were at present several empty business buildings on State St., and several moie likely i 0 T become empty in the near future. He pointed out that the entire length of State Street is already commercial zone, and challenged the necessity of including East Call street in a commercial zone. "Nothing hurts a town moro than empty business buildings' Cassel said, "and those we now have." He also inquired why if the engineer's survey of 195? was considered adequate it now became out-of-date in 1961. Other Viewpoints A cross-check of other viewpoints expressed follows: John Kohlhaas — Asked why 8 or 10 blocks have to be made commercial fpr one proposed commercial building. Bill Barry — Observed that it was unlikely the area concerned would be filled with business buildings in the next 50 years but commercial zoning would bo a constant threat and lower property value. Mrs. V. V. Naudain — Wonder if commercial zoning would cause tax reappraisal. Oliver S. Carlson — Said valu ations do not rise or fall will commercial zoning. Dr. W. L. Clegg — Asked whai would happen in a year or twc a someone else wanted to build a business properly o.utside tin commercial area. Howard Miller — Said he had searched long for a home, remodeled it, had just what Im family wanted, and now wondered what would happen. Milton Norton — Built his home 40 years ago, had kept it up, and now suggested rezonin/' was desired only because there was one empty church property Larry Knoll — Wondered wh so much area was involved. Jack Limbaugh — Expresse opinion that Algona's busines area needed expansion. Jim Whittemore — Wonderec why, when only real eonsidera lion was a half block, all th rest had to be involved Russell Buchanan — Said he felt there were not enough places available in present business commercial area for large expansion. At the conclusion of the public forum, Chairman Everett Baldus asked for the Commission viewpoint on whether to vote or table the matter, and the vote was taken. Voting for the recommendation to rezone were Baldus, L E. Hovey, Clayton Perclval Lloyd Robinson, Miles Sloniker Phyllis Burt and Bryon Richardson. Voting against rezoning wert Marian Will Veda Murtagfa and Max Bartholomew, Nudity In 4 Magazines Is Charged Four magazines, which thd plaintiffs say consisted chiefly of pictures of undraped females, have resulted in the filing of on unusual case in the court of Justice Delia Welter. The Smoke Shop, venerable Algona meeting place, is charged with the sale of obscene, lewd and indecent magazines. The in- ormation was filed by Dr A j Gotten and Dr. D. J. Shey, local veterinarians, and the formal omplaint by County Attorney Gordon Winkel. No date for a hearing has been et, as G. D. Shumway, attorney or the Smoke Shop, is attending a tax school this week at Des Moines. Dr. Cotton said yesterday thai he and Dr. Shey had no axes to grind. However, they found four magazines on a top shelf at the Smoke Shop, they said, which were'on the list of banned magazines compiled by Norman Erbe when attorney general last year. The magazines were "Adam" "Caper", "Gem" and "Nugget." "We are not interested in any fine," said Dr. Gotten, "we just want to get the magazines out of circulation." Smoke Shop proprietors, Stewart McFadden and L. W. Gillespie, said that the magazine racks are filled regularly by Iowa magazine distributors and they do not read or check eacn different magazine. Unsold copies are usually returned as new ssues appear. After Erbe's banning of numerous magazines, the magazine distributor's association took the matter to court, and just whac happened afterward is not too cWar, but the magazines never were completely removed from Io,wa circulation, even though Mii Erbe is governor today. The charge, Mr. Winkel said is an indictable misdemeanor, triable in district court if a lower court finds sufficient reason to so do, in a preliminary hearing. Postpone Move To Revalue Here Decision by the State Tax Commission to forego any move o increase general assessment valuations throughout the state las temporarily solved the prob- em for Kossuth County, one of 8 slated for increase if the ot>- ections were overruled. A pro- est hearing had been set up in which Kossuth was to partici- ate, but the state unit's decision anceled the necessity of the meeting.
