It was reportedly a great success and will probably be tried again. Buys Gamble Store George Swalves of Hebron has purchased a Gamble store at Northwood and will move there shortly. Mr Swalye is holding a farm sale Friday. Petit Jurors To Report Tuesday Petit jurors for the February term of district court in Kossuth county are to report next Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 10 a.m. and jury cases set for trial are slated to begin that day. Two criminal cases are on the docket of Judge Fred M. Hudson, who will preside. In the meantime, a grand jury indictment was returned, Tuesday, charging Edwin Lloyd of Bancroft with false uttering of a check, his fourth offense. Bond was fixed for $1,000, and Lloyd was in the county jail yesterday. The check in question was issued for $15 on April 9, 1956, and gashed in a local store,' Martin J. Kern, Algona, was sentenced to 90 days in the county jail and fined $100 on a plea of guilty to a charge of larceny in the nighttime in court Monday. The case involved theft of a watt-h from a local store counter, Jan. 16 . The invention of an Algona welding shop owner, now going into production for sale to semi- truck and fleet truck owners, has all the ear-marks of "a new Algona industry.", If tests in actual use of the new device, conducted over the past two months, and enthusiastic comments as a result of the tests are any indication, that is exactly what may come into being — "a new Algona industry." John Hanselman, owner of Hanselman's Welding Shop at State and Heckart streets, is the man with the "idea", which came to him last year as a result of his work with truck owners. Drivers of large semis, hauling loads inter-state, are confronted at most state lines with laws regulating the axle load, and in many states with laws stipulating the maximum length of a load. A driver on a long haul therefore has to shift his axle load weight many times, and also shorten his load at times. Most devices now on the market, which enable a truck driver to accomplish these changes, are pretty expensive and also take considerable time to handle on the road. That's what Hanselman determined to improve. After experimenting with different solutions, John finally came up with an "air value" theory to the problem, and in his shop here perfected the new truck device! for which are to be applied for. patents His in- John Gisch Hurt John Gisch suffered a painful accident last week Thursday >vhen the twine on a bale of hay ie was lifting loosened.

Plan Bus Trip -^-A group of Methodist young people are planning a trip by chartered bus to Sioux City, Saturday, Feb. 16. They will visit Morningside College, Good Will Industries a'nd the Methodist hospital. They will join others in Algona at 6:30 a.m. and expect to be back hwie about 2 a.m. Sunday. vention,— or device — rests over the axle in rear of the cab, and when an air valve in the cab, controlled by the driver, is operated it releases a pin automatically and enables the truck driver to move the cab end backwards or forwards the inches necessary to adjust the axle load weight or load length to satisfy requirements. The whole operation is performed without the driver leaving his cab. Thus far, five of the units have been produced at the Hanselman Welding Shop here, and one ol these has seen actual, use on a big semi-truck for 25,000 miles, with excellent results. Mr Hanselman calls his new device the "Adjustable Sliding 5th Wheel For Position Of The Load"—but he is working on a shorter and catchier trade-name for the product. Arrangements have been made with a heavy equipment' distributor for sale of the Hanselman device, and the local firm expects to be turning out 10 to 15 of them per month shortly. The units are priced at $250 each, plus installation. Glenn Smith, employed at the Hanselman shop for the past two years, assisted in developing the product, and is as enthusiastic as Eianselman over its potentials. But John, although he has a lot of confidence in the future of his "idea", is somewhat conservative when it comes to being enthusiastic, and isn't planning« to knock out a wall of his shop for expansion yet for awhile. However, just in case he does expand, he has plenty of extra land area 7 Mendez Concert Pleases Highly An enthusiastic group of music lovers who nearly filled the high school auditorium, including the balcony, enjoyed the concert here Tuesday evening presented by Rafael Mendez, trumpet vir- Mrs Scheme!, 97, Services Set Friday Funeral services for Mrs Pauline Schemel, 97, former longtime resident of this area, will be held Friday at 10 a.m. in St. Cecelia Catholic church.
