10-Algono ('«•) Upper 1971 ACTION Looks like Algona's BB team is back on their winning streak. They played a beautiful defense at Clear Lake last week. That was a game to see! ... .Storm Lake is only human. AHS The Cadets and pep band went to Corwith Monday night to march at the half-time of the girls sectional basketball tournament. Their drill included the "Hawaii Five-0" and "The Stripper" routines. They gave a very fine performance, and even got a standing ovation. AHS What did the gang do up at "the lakes"? AHS About thirty-five juniors took the National Merit Scholarship tests Tuesday. AHS Don, quit picking on Steve. Since Garrigan had so much luck with their carnival-auction. I think A.H.S. should have one sometime in the future. The junior class would be glad to donate some items. Such as: Rex Post's purple knee hi's- we'll wash them first. Mike Moulton's harmonica we've got to get rid of it somehow. Carbon copies of John Skilling's speech about him self. Autographed! Anne Stuarts band uniform since she never wears it. Ed Klilsholm's Ups - still attached to his horn. Rick Kisch's mouth- now there's a bargain! Rick Reed's car - if we could ever pry it away. Locks of Gilbert Wildin'shair. AHS Don't forget District Wrestling Friday and Saturday here in our own gym! And the BB game here Thursday. Board Accepts Supt. Laing's Resignation The Algona Community School Board, meeting in regular session Tuesday night, accepted the resignation of Supt. 0. B. Laing after receiving a letter from him to that effect: "Please accept my resignation from my present position as Superintendent of Schools of this District, effective August 1st, 1971. It would probably be most convenient to simply provide for the extension of my current conte current contract termination from July 1st to August'1st." /s/ Otto B.' Laing 2/13/71 -EXTEND CONTRACT*-,,... The Board votejKfo extend Supt. Laing's contract until Aug. 1 as a means to help smooth the transition period between superintendents. They also reported that they have begun interviews in their search to fill the position. More than 50 applications have been received. Five interviews have already been conducted, with three scheduled Feb. 17 and four more next week. —NEGOTIATING COMMITTEE— The Board, acting on a request by the Algona Education Association, decided to appoint a negotiating committee to meet privately with the AEA negotiating committee on!971-72 teaching contracts. Board President Russ Medin will appoint board members to the committee, but he said Tuesday that he wants to do some thinking on the matter before he selects the committee members. Medin said it was the first time the Algona board has gone the committee route in negotiating procedures and that "most schools do" use the committee approach. —RETIRE AT 65— The Board voted to amend teaching contracts to include a clause which states that retirement is compulsory at age 65. Five teachers on the present faculty will not be offered 1971-72 contracts because of this retirement regulation which has been in effect for sometime now. —DRIVER EDUCATION— The Board decided to keep its present driver education system of Saturday classroom work during the regular school year combined with summer driving experience. The decision came after a proposal by instructor Fritz Nielsen which would have expanded the program about two more weeks in the summer. Supt. Lain said he believed Nielsen's recommendation would have improved the program, .but that the present way is less expensive and is more popular with the students. —EXPELL STUDENT— Acting on a recommendation from high school Principal Elgin Allen, the Board expelled a 17-year-old junior who has been a repeated violator of the Board's no-smoking (in school) policy. The Board also accepted the proposed 1971-72 school year calendar which has classes scheduled on 180 days starting Monday, Aug. 30, 1971, and ending June 1,1972. -SHORT MEETING- ' It was the briefest regular school board session in the past three months, partly because the board has also been meeting privately in an effort to handle some of its work.

Special diets can also be provided. Representatives from each of the seven churches, using their own cars, will deliver the hot meals between 11:30 and 12:30. Those eligible for this service are convalescents who might be discharged from the hospital earlier if meals were available in their homes or anyone who requires special diets; a person who is physically handicapped or, because of age, feels he cannot purchase and prepare an adequate meal for himself. Any disabled or elderly person living with relatives may need the service during a family vacation or perhaps at noon when adults are employed away from home, is also qualified, as a person who does not prepare well-rounded meals for himself.

When partial assistance is needed, it will be provided. To order' the meals, contact the Vander Waals at 295-3229 and ask that an application blank be sent to you. If for some reason an applicant wishes to cancel a meal, it may be done by calling St. Ann Hospital business office, 295-2451, by 8 o'clock in the morning, if you wish the service discontinued completely, the same number must be called. If any one wishes to help, contact the volunteer chairman of the church of your choice and offer to deliver "Meals on Wheels." Donations of money from any group or individual to cover the cost of initial supplies will be appreciated. Any gifts, including memorials, are tax deductible and help to assure a continuance of the service.
