Councl ' It's because our government was set up to serve everybody equally. Each citizen is entitled to the same rights, the same privileges, the same protection from injustice and violence. Everyone should have, therefore, ^anjequal voice : ;..: one vote at election time. / ~~~~~~~ This is democracy in government --•-- — The same form of democratic C9ntrol is natural for a cooperative, because it, too, is organized to provide services for its members. Everyone who belongs to the co-op, and anyone can, is entitled to these services equally without distinction. ^ _ I Here, too, each individual has just one vote in determining now affairs are to be handled... and this holds true even though one member may have invested much more than another.^ This is democracy wbiisineasjj'' Everyone shares In, CO-OP BENEFITS 'Published to Ttetp you letter understand tony co-ops are organ- ised, how they work, and their place in American business, by NO. 9 OF A SERIES PRESENTED BY: LEDYARD CO-OP ELEVATOR Ledyard, Iowa Bernard Reilly, Mgr.

Ljftai AL60NA, IOWA, TUESDAY, MARCH 17, 1962 VOL. 97 - NO. 12 Beautiful Day • Snow Still Problem Real, early spring weather moved into Kossuth county for the first time in 1962 about a week ago and big bites of the winter's accumulation of snow began to disappear as temperature readings zoomed upward. Problems remained, however, as the photo above proves. Some county roads, clogged much of the time since the Feb. 16-17 weekend when a 13-inch blizzard hit the area, were still jammed with snow and county equipment was having a rough time getting them cleared. The snow plow-equipped mamtainer shown here bogged down in a drift that measured 11-12 feet in depth, two miles north and a half-mile west of Hobarton, Wednesday morning, March 21. The plow, operated by Ralph Markla of Algona, came to rest almost hub-deep in the road. , A plow-equipped snow loader was hauled to the scene oh a truck from LuVerne and workmen were then able to free the maintainer and clear.the roads. • u ...-, ""*•*'Couritysupervisors have been -flrfbded with requests (and sometimes demands) from constituents living in their districts who wanted immediate action on road clearing following our many storms. Unfortunately, it was impossible to comply with many of the requests. Equipment breakdowns, followed by delays for repairs, difficulty in obtaining repair parts in some instances — and high winds which filled in roads that had just been opened — have given the supers visors and county road employees fits all winter. The last couple of months of winter here have been compared to J ed to use bobsleds and sleighs for transportation for quite a while — and it has been next to impossible to keep roads open, despite the effortl of the men and equipment. • The day this photo was snapped was beautiful. It was warm, the sun was shining brightly and there was little or no wind. In fact, it was downright pleasant in Kossuth county — but there were still coun* ty roads just like the one shown above. > Everyone seemed happy to see spring arrive — and hoped it would stay. (UDM Newsfoto — Engraving) Work Progresses On New Clinic A let-up in the weather (sunshine instead of. snow) allowed Ready-Mix Concrete and Lumber Co. workmen to really get at the job of converting the former Heise building on State street into a medical clinic last week. Dr. Dan Bray of Algonn recently acquired the property from Dr. Heise of Emmetsburg. ^ ^ ff ^ _ _ _ Final plans for the inside of the the ugTy'winter"of'l936 when many farmers living in the area were fore- new clinic have not been com- pleted, but the exterior will be about 45 x 100 feet. Walls of the old building will be used where possible and sections of the standing walls have been reduced. to 1-story, which will be the size of the clinic when completed later this year. The building will house a wail ing room, laboratory, x-ray rooms, etc. and is designed to fill a specif, ic need in this area.
