Yep, we're going to have- parking meters in Algona one of these first days) according to the city council, because on account of that bunch of gents has passed ari ordinance which provides for the, installation of the' joke posts from which the council expects a return of $20,000r And it's my notion that when the council, the city administration, provides for the installation of the joke posts every ,one of them just, so .to speak,' resigned as a councilman because oH accouht of there won't be any re-elaeting of the gents who forced the joke posts upon us. I have heard dozens upon dozens of citizens declare .that there wouldn't be any squares marked for the council members of today 1 . But the joke post ordinance may have been one way for the council to discontinue countilmaning instead of offering resignation or'declaring they did riot Want the job again, so to speak. ', " -^-o—• • One thing is certain and that is that it was not a popular stunt the council pulled when joke posts were voted into Algona. I have only heard one man speak favorably for the project and, by the way, he is a member of the council. And there is no question but that installation of the joke posts is going to be costly to Algona business. I have been doing some arithrhaticing since the joke post question was brought up in the city hall ana acted upon, by the'council. And IS Sizzling fflfflHRffilffli %.

GIRLS' CANVAS OXFORDS Sizes 4'/2-3 Cushiony Crepe Soles SaniJUed Lining, Washable GIRLS' RAYON-COTTON PANTIES I have 54 names, farmers, ,whom I quizzed as to what they thought of joke posts in Algona, and 'it's a cinch .they were all plenty plainly opposed to the joke posti As one gent who , farms nin,e' miles from the county seat, and .of a family of eight, stated: "1 sure don't intend to do any mbre trading in your toWn when there is a cash penalty to meet. It's not the dime that I'm charged when I come to Algona, but it's the principal of the thing, dig tip when I visit your town. And my neighbors feel the same Way. We can spend bur money in other towns." And in the ordinance the council' shouts "The narrowness of the streets and volume of traffic on the streets in certain sections of the city" and also "A parking problem is created .because Of the habit of numerous operators of motor vehicles to • park for unreasonably long periods in con-- gesled areas of the city"'and also "Previous attempts .to regulate traffic and parking . have not been as successful as desired." And I checked the present parking spaces jand when the jdke; posts are installed there won't be one-single inch of space increased because on accptfnt of the instal*' lation of the joke posts do v not widen traffic space. And the reason "numerous operators Of motor vehicles'parked -for long "periods" was because there were iiot enough of police or checkers to keep a check on the parking and what else would you expect? And it's a cinch when the joke posts are installed there will have to be at least four additional men on ,the force to check the joke posts. One man, or two men, just can't do it. The city now has a two-hour limit parking in the loop, but as there are not enough of checkers the limit means nothing. And the joke posts will mean nothing unless the force is increased to proper check of the joke post zone. 3 For Sizes 4-14 White —Mint Pink -* Maize — Green — Blue -* Lilac 1 large Selection-Girls' Peasant Blouses 98 59 Sues 3-6x Sizes 7-14 === White Color 1 LADIES' CRINKLE CREPE SHORT GOWNS Outstanding §olid Colors - Blue Yellow - Green - Pink - Size; S-M-L • NEEDS NO IRONING* 1 77 Yes, 1 sure hate to see the loss in business and trade which our 'commercial interests will experience. ".You don't have to take .my Word for: this, jiist ask any .town of 7,000 to 10,000 inhabitants what happened when they put in joke posts, there are plenty bf out neighborhood, and the conditions may easily,be seen. In fact there are several towns hear Algona that have suffered .financial loss and have turned the •joke posts free for packing. And I predict—that within two years after the joke posts are installed in Algbna we'll have a new membership on our council and the joke posts will be turned loose for free parking. As for the money spent for them and for the money owing for them —• oh, what's the use? . Police Card File Proves Value ' Information on file at the Algona police station contains thousands of cardsw hich carry 'up-to- 'date information about Algona citizens, past anti present. Its •purpose is to serve the community in times'and stress or when individuals need help. It has been neatly organized and kept up-to-date by Jim Egli who has spent many hours on the project.

' When Mrs Fern Hardgrove died Monday morning, immediate effort was made to contact mem- bers'of the family. One of her sons, Wallace Hardgrove, had recently moved to another part of the country.
