Mr. and Mrs. Frank Ryshavy Busy Ryshavys to Observe Their 60th Wedding Date Saturday BLOOMING PRAIRIE, Minn.- Every working day Frank Rys- havy gets up at 4 a.m., walks four blocks to the First National Bank, checks the furnace and starts another day's work. This isn't unusual, itself. But Ryshavy is 81 years old and still works every day. "I've worked all my life ond there's no reason why I should stop now," Ryshavy said, putting on his jacket for a walk uptown in the afternoon to check his furnace. He has had the furnace job for seven years now. There is a stoker, so Ryshavy doesn't have to shovel the coal or build a fire, yet he checks the furnace several fire is burning and that the stoker is running. Typical Thoroughness This attention to the job is typical of the thoroughness Ryshavy has shown in every job he has done, and he has been a day worker in Blooming for over 58 years. The Ryshavys moved to Blooming Prairie from a farm near Sommerset, northwest of there after farming for almost two years. "I didn't matter to me where we lived," Mrs. Ryshavy said. "We moved to town, to this house, and haven't moved since," 60th Anniversary Saturday They will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary Saturday. Since leaving the farm, Ry- times a clay to make sure hisjshavy has done most everything.

CONTRIBUTION MADE HAYFIELD, Minn. — A contri-• bution to the March of Dimes was made by the U-Go-I-Go Club of| Hayfield. Mrs. Clarenct Saxton was hotteat. < He ran a steam engine on a threshing rig shortly after leaving the farm and even operated it in the off season when it was used by a house mover. He has been a carpenter, plumb er, block layer, well driller, general repairman and village marshal. "I remember when the piston broke on the diesel at the light plant," Ryshavy said. "I helped pull that heavy piston, but I just watched recently when they repaired one of the engines." Ryshavy recalls laying blocks for several Blooming Prairie business buildings and 11 years ago, when he was 70, he helped his grandson, Robert Ryshavy, Austin police sergeant, lay basement blocks. Always Had 'A Job "I always had work," Ryshavy said. "During the depression, 1 was a WPA foreman." Ryshavy was the town's night marshal for three years and day marshal for nine years, during World War I and after. "That's a job I didn't really like," he said. "It's tough being a marshal in a small town." During those 12 years, Ryshavy walked the streets of Blooming Prairie many times. He didn't have a car, in fact Ryshavy has driven a car only once, years ago. He walks every where, even to the cemetery south of town. Have Vegetable Garden The Ryshavys, Mrs. Ryshavy is as active as her husband, plant a garden each summer and Mrs. Ryshavy cans the vegetables in the fall. "My husband eats everything, but he doesn't like food from tin cans," she said. They have had five children, Frank, Jr., who was an Austin police sergeant, and Robert, both deceased, and Grover, Nordeen and Lorraine, Mrs. Al Bretthauer. Mrs. Ryshavy's new interest is watching television and she spends several evenings a week with friends. But her husband doesn't share this interest and he most always goes to bed early to rest for the next day's work.

Interstate Reimbursement Not Likely , Cory Declares A prediction that Congress will refuse to authorize reimbursement for interstate highways built or under construction on June 30, l!)57 was made today by E. Ray Cory, Minnesota AAA president. Cory pointed out that in the 1956 Federal Highway Act, Congress announced its intention to determine whether or not reimbursement should be made to states for highways — toll or free — on the interstate system completed or put under construction between Aug. 2, 1947 and June 30, 1957. "A special report by the U. S. 1958 Embassy Visit Slated The Austin YMCA and YWCA this year again will sponsor the Y Embassy program bringing foreign students from state colleges to Austin, Mrs. Gladys Emerson and Cliff Maxwell, executive secretaries of the YW and YM, respectively, announced today.

Toeterville Church Elects Officers TOETERVILLE, Iowa — Officers Bureau of Public Ronds," he said, "showed that the total cost of highways eligible for consideration for reimbursement amounted to more than $(i billion — $2.6 billion was for toll roads and $3.5 billion for free roads." "Because the highway trust fund is proving inadequate to finance the federal highway program as currently authorized," he added, "there is rising opposition on Capitol Hill against reimbursement for highways constructed or started prior to the cutoff date. "For example, Sen. Francis Case (R-S. D.), ranking minority member of the Senate Subcommittee on Roads, recently said it would take funds equal to two years of interstate apportionments in order to reimburse the slates fully for such highways. "Since Congress already is faced with extremely difficult problems in the financing of the Interstate system, it appears unlikely that leaders will make the problem even more difficult by entering into any program for interstate road reimbursement."

William Buechner, Co. H. commander, said this morning. Gov. Freeman today announced that he had approved the reorganization of the Minnesota Guard which will mean 98 separate units in the Viking Division instead of the 107 under the old divisional structure. The new plan, called the Pentb- mlc Concept was formulated to parallel the comparable combat elements of the regular Army. Tbo plan on a nationwide level will reorganize the Army National Guard at a strength of 400,000. The modem Viking Division will consist of five battle groups, a 155 howitzer field artillery battalion and a transport tactical carrier battalion, broken up into 98 separate units. Freeman said t h * new plan would assure Minnesota a troop basis "which would not require units to be withdrawn from communities with long and rich traditions in maintaining guard units." Buecliner said the new plan may mean some local reorganization. The complete reorganization plan will be announced as soon as approval is received in Washingtoo and they uhould be in effect before the active-duty training sessions begin in June at Camp Ripley.
