Lot Of Digging Still In Jail Edwin Dunstorff, 20, of Bancroft was such an industrious jailbreak- er that Cerro Gordo County jail officials decided to let him keep digging. Dunstorff, serving 30 days on a bad check charge, had laboriously removed 'portions of his cell's asphalt ceiling tile and was scraping his way through the plaster ceiling material. They let him go about his business. After burrowing into the ceiling, Dunstorff would flush the paster down the cell's toilet and replace the tile. Officials stopped him last Thursday, deciding he had gone for enough when the hole reached man sized proportions. Dunstorff was charged with malicious injury to the Courthouse. There really wasn't any danger of him breaking out, officials said.

School Board Okays Running Track, Seeding The board of education of the Algona Community School'District okayed a contract with the McGuire Const. Ca of Algona for construction of a running track at the new athletic field site in the southeast portion of town at a meeting here Monday night. While there are a few minor problems to be ironed out, according to Supt. 0. B. Laing, total cost of the project will be $18,777 — with the possibility the figure might be reduced depending upon a supply of cinders for the surface of the track. The board also negotiated a plan for seeding the athletic field area with Hugh Black, area farmer. The seeding of the entire area will be completed as soon as weather permits with alfalfa, oats, etc., which will later be harvested by Black. Eventually, the actual playing fields will be blue grass, according to Frank Brusie, who is supervising the job for the district.
