He is John Linnan, father of L. E. Linnan, Algona attorney, and next Saturday, the day before Father's Day, he will observe his 92nd birthday. So it is only natural for family and friends to put the two occasions together in one observance. Hale and hearty, Mr Linnan, widely-known in western Iowa and South Dakota, actively manages the 1,000 acre farm he owns near Maurice. He travels widely to buy cattle for the farm, and approaching 92, can still put men many years his junior through arduous physical endurance. In 1873, John Linnan. then 8 To Observe 92nd and Father's Day Together years of age, first found himself in Algona. The family was emigrating West, and the Milwaukee tracks ended at Algona. The family spent a few days here before heading west in a wagon, and Mr Linnan still remembers how he "herded cattle" on the outskirts of Algona. Following that, his first visit back to Algona was in 1920, the first year of his son's entry into law practice here. He now resides with a daughter, Joan Linnan, and besides L. E. Linnan of Algona, has two other daughters and a son, all of whom are California residents. Mr Linnan says he "has a big bushel basket ready" ... to hold the Birthday-Father's Day cards expected at the Maurice post office this coming weekend. the town harmless from any and all causes of action, litigation or damages which may arise through or by reason of the construction, reconstruction, maintenance and operation of said distribution and transmission systems and other construction hereby authorized.

Section 11. That the Grantee shall, within sixty (60) days after the publication of this Ordinance, signify in writing and acceptance of the grant herein, including the conditions and restrictions herein expressed, and this Ordinance arid Franchise granted herein shall not be operative or binding unless such acceptance is filed with the City Clerk. The Grantee shall pay the cost incurred in holding the election to submit this Ordinance to the legal electors for their approval, as provided by law. Section 12. That all ordinances, or parts of ordinances, insofar as they are in direct 'conflict herewith, are hereby repealed. Section 13. That this Ordinance shall take effect and be in full force and effect subject to its approval by the majority of the legal electors of the town of Burt, Iowa voting thereon, as provided by law, and subject to its acceptance by the Grantee, as provided herein, upon its publication as by law provided.
