4~Atflona (Id.) Upper De* Molne* Tuesday, May Id, 1954 11th Iowa Pig Hatchery Established Near Algeria The eleventh pig hatfchery to be established in Iowa is now in operation bn the farm 6 miles south of Algona owned by C. R. Schoby and tenanted by John Beck. It Is the first pig hatchery in Kossuth County, arid is being operated as the "Schoby and Beck Pig Hatchery." If you want to see: dozens and dozens of little pigs/ of uniform size and texture, running: about in one big pen, the Schoby and Beck Pig Hatchery id where you will see^hem. The two partners have plans for raising • approximately 1,000 pigs per year, beginning in 1985, to be offered for sale In this area of the age of'eight Weeks. Thejj will average 30 to 40 pounds In' weight, and about all a farmer buyer has Id do is take them home and put them on feed. At present, Schoby and Beck have about 150 pigs from 15 sows. Week* Of Study • At the present time,'pig hatch- erie's ,are operating in Various URGENT! All of us are asked, in the normal course of living, to contribute to and; lend our support to worthy endeavors. Much that has been done would never have been done unless we saw fit to "put our shoulder to the wheel." Below is outlined a case of that kind — one that is worthy in the highest sense of the word. We ask you to please read every word of it. AN APPEAL TO THE CITIZENS OF KOSSUTH COUNTY 1 In the new Kossuth County Courthouse, now in process of being erected, it is intended that an imposing memorial be installed on the main floor wall of the structure — a memorial in the form of a Genuine Vermont marble slab which would commemorate all those from Kossuth County, Iowa, who have fallen and who have served in the defense of our country. Close at hand to the slab is to be a permanently installed compartment containing the names of all those men and women of the county who httye served their country — to be opened at . some future date, perhaps 100 years from now. ' Architect's Drawing of Courthouse Marble Memorial The project of fund-raising to defray the cost of this Vermont marble memorial slab has been undertaken by all American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars posts in Kossuth county. James A. Kelley and Harold Sundet have been appointed co-chairmen, assisted by a committee composed of Andy Fangman, Bancroft, Oscar R. Person, Swea City, Bob Gengler, Whittemore, and Leo Garman, Burt. i It is hoped that the memorial can be in place by the time of the Kossuth County Centennial, when it is proposed to have the courthouse structure open for inspection. Thus far however, since announcement of this memorial project, contributions have been very, very slow in coming in. That is the reason for,this message. It is true that marble can never repay the debt owed by all of us to those who gave their lives in the supreme sacrifice, or to those who served so valiantly in America's great wars against such ruthless enemies. But as is our custom in America, we take a method like this of commemorating such sacrifice. And it is certain beyond any doubt that the ones whom we used to know as friends'— who are now dead and gone - deserve whatever tribute we can make to them. let us not let this worthy project go by default, let us one and all join in, in whatever way we can, with whatever size contribution we take it in our hearts to make — to see that on the day the Kossuth County Courthouse is opened this memorial to the quick and the dead who have defended our great nation is in place for all to pause at reverently. Your contribution - one dollar, five dollars or a hundred - can be made to any Legion or VFW post in the county. It can be sent to one of the co-chairmen in Algona, as listed above or to Roy McMahon, Iowa State Bank, or Gene Scheme!, Security State Bank, Algona, co-treasurers, Kossuth County Veterans Memorial Fund. And whatever its size, you can be sure it will be gratefully received and gratefully appreciated. Will you do it? Will you do it now, or as early as convenient? Will you join with others to remember "Lest We Forget?" And here following is a special announcement of an event being sponsored by the Whittemore Legion post to aid in raising funds for this project: Kossuth County Veterans Memorial Fund BENEFIT DANCE Sponsored By Whittemore American Legion WEDNESDAY NIGHT, MAY 26 "AT THE PLANTATION" Guy de Leo's Orchestra TICKETS $1.00 PER PERSON - Available From Any County legionnaire or at the Plantation ENTIRE PROFITS OF PANCE GO TO THE MEMORIAL FUND That is the jfpry.

They also studied several on-the-spot operations. The pig hatdhery building measures 20X110 feet and has a complete, concrete floor, along with concrete' feeding and exer-> cislng apron. There (are farro$- ing stalls of the latest type for 15 SOWS. , r Key Swind Concept Experts' say that expansion of the pig hatchery movement cpuld hdve a decided influence on the eritire concept of swine raising, in much the same way that artificial breeding has had in the raising of cattle. At any rate, there are, some fine-looking little pigs at the, Schoby and Beck Pig Hatchery south of Algona, and the two partners say they,Will be happy co take a farmer on a "conducted tour" at any time. Seek Funds To Erect County War Memorial An urgent appeal is being made by the Kossuth County. Veterans Memorial Fund committee, to resi- ents of the county and elsewhere, for contributions for 'the memorial to be erected on a wall of the new court house. James A. Kelley and Harold Sundet, co-chairmen of the project, state that contributions have been slow in coming in and that everyone is : urged to help out. ' .The memorial' is to be a large Vermont marble slab, with an in^ scription to the memory of all county war veterans. The court* ty board pf supervisors endorsed the project permission for installation of .the slab. Adjacent to the memorial will be a permanent Compartment, containing the names o| all county veterans of all Wars. Other Memorial Fund com- miitee members are Andy Fangman, Bancroft, Oscar R. Person, bwea City, Bob Gengler, Whittemore, and Leo Garman, Burt. Contributions of any size may be sent to Roy McMahon or Gene Schemel, Algona, co-treasurers of me mnu, or may be given any American Legion or Veterans of r ui-Kign Wars post in the county^ A detailed message on the Memorial Fund is given else where in today's Upper Des Moines. • It is hoped that the Memorial slab -may be in place on the court house wall for inspection during Centennial days on July 4, 5, and 6.
