Dept, of History Dee Moines 19, Iowa ESTABLISHED 1863 Intered as seebiid class tastier at the pmtoffiee at Aljjma, Iowa, Nov. 1, 1932, tinder ,Act of Congress of March 3, 1879* ALGONA, IOWA, TUESDAY, AUGUST 3, 1954 2 SECTIONS - 16 PAGES VOL. 91 - NO. 31 Name A.S.C Twp. Office Nominees By Russ Waller • - * • *.' * Sjsenis that in the process of acquiring easements for construe' ling the Northern Natural Gas pipeline from Belmond to Algona, a gas company representative was having,qUite a conversation with a farmer on just how the gaS would'be routed. He explained how the natural gas reservoirs in New Mexico and Texas would be tapped, the gas pumped to a distributing point such as , Omaha, .then into a pipeline supplying the .Twin Cities, then tapped at Belmond to come flowing 1 " toward Algona. All of this seemed like quite a bit of traveling to the farmer, who remarked as he\ signed the easement, "You'll have that gas all worn out before it gets up here.", * * ' * Our esteemed friend. Soup Briggs, who like all good barbers can shear you expertly While cracking jpkes at the same time,: remarked after a recent, family, event that he had been in the .doghouse for a few days, Seems that, he • told his wife. Jerry, "I don't mind being'a. grandpa but it sure makes me' feel old to think of being married to a grandma!" • , » *• * We just had a feeling that >,, something was bound to turn up "in the news concerning Virg Smith, after we failed to get the usual "big fish" story from him last winter. Last week it did. Virg has been playing cribbage all his life, and. we know from experience tt\at nobody can wear him out at the game—and seldom beat him, we might add. But Virg never held a perfect cribbage hand in all the years he has played—until last week. THEN HE HELD TWO PERFECT 29 HANDS IN A WEEK! We might say .that when we heard.-about this, we also inquired politely if there were sufficient witnesses to' this unusual event to verify it, and there were— both hands;.,being-held at:»the Western' Buyers office here with plenty at" witnesses. - Claude Single wSs Vlrg's opponent in one game, 'and Lowell Smith ,was hib foe in'tHe other-"one. , ', Most., every smoker has tried at one time or another, or numerous titties, to quit smoking. ' A few d4ys ago we ran into a local resident-who is in the'process of ..quitting, so we pinned him down for a thumbnail interview on the subject. He is Al Wheeler, who pounds the pavements and beats the air waves for station KSMN, "with studios in Algona." Al remarked that he had "quit smoking again." This led to the disclosure that he quits every so often, but .this time he is determinted to make it stick (probably been reading that Readers Digest yarn). Al says that the best time to quit is in the morning (no elaboration on this point), and that the roughest time after you've quit hits! you about a week later. Along the way he also figured out that in the 20 years he's been smoking (no statement as to the age at which he began) he has spent i$3,400 on smokes—"enough to buy a root beer stand", says Al. He quit once for a year, and at other times for several weeks. His current "quit" has been in effect since July 23rd—keep it up, boy! * * * One local justice of the peace was a bit startled at the reply he received recently from a couple after he married ihem.< Thinking to be sociable, he casually asked them where they intended to spend their honeymoon. There was a brief pause, then the bridegroom remarked, 'Oh, we've already spent Strangely enough we didn't read anything in the Iowa press about the results of the nationwide vote by wheat farmers as to whether they preferred acreage allotments and fixed, guaranteed prices, or no allotments and a flexible price support system The outcome, however, showed about £0 percent of the wheat farmers voting for allotments and guaranteed support prices. ^ ^ While we regret the decision of Ralph Miller to retire from business here, it is good to know that he intends to remain a local resident... state highway crews are widening the shoulders on number 18 between Algona and Whittemore, which will give all of us a little leeway in case we need it . -Mr and Mrs Harold Van AHen took it all quietly but the highway construction at the 1B- 169 corner eliminated them from business for some months, but we're filad to see them back, remodeled and ready to make up for lost time ... the Friday night pro- eram Aug. 20, at the Kossuth S'tv Fair, is going to be a Home Talent Minstrel. Protest, Gift Meters Appeal Board To Review City Warm Potato Parking meters for Algona met n new obstacle, Friday, and this" time the controversy will be olaced in the lap of the State Board of Appeals in" Des Moines. for a decision.' The , State Board of Appeals Consists 'of the state auditor, state treasurer and state comptroller; The board, which is seldom used. is,set up to settle disputes on public contracts. The appeal was filed with Ivy Scuffham, city clerk, by the law firm of Linnan & Lynch, on be? half of a group of local residents who object to having the city, enter into an agreement to install parking ( meters. 'Fight Began In Feb. The controversy actually dates back to last February, when the "Committee Against • P a r k i ng 'Meters" was organized after the' first move toward getting parking meters took place. Following that a postcard poll showed 2,691 residents of Algona and •Algona routes against the meters, and 191 for them. '' Th'e official appeal was signed by Don F. Nelson, Roy V. Christensen, Elmer Langmack, G. E. CuJlen, M. Joseph 'Bradley, Arnold W. Elbert,'T. R. Chrischilles, John R. Chrischilles, Ray Beamish, Neil O. Monaco, Joe E. Lyn ch, Jr., ,L. E. Linnan and W. H.- Sharp. The . Mayor and city council met July 22 to enter into a contract for parking meters. at a cost''of more than $5,QOO> qnd a written protest was then filed .at the meetihg by ten legal residents and qualified voters' of Algona, individually and as representatives of 58 business and professional people. The council rejected the protest by a vote of 5-1. Five Page Protest The signers presented a five page protest. One of the principal grounds-of the appeal is that the council believe that they have? the right, by reason of their official position, to install parking meters in Algona, even against the wishes and desires of approximately 90% of the 1 legal residents and qualified electors of Algona who have strenuously objected thereto. All polls on the subject were tabulated in the protest. The protest is summarized with the conclusion that people in Algona trade area are over-whelm- ingly against narking meters, and have also indicated an intention of boycotting business and professional people of'Algona if meters are installed. The protest says: "These objectors believe that the council, in the face of almost unanimous objection from the residents and qualified voters of Algona, do not have the right o contract for and install meten-i n Algona. These objectors understand that at times ^additional parking space could b'e used in Algona, but that this situation lould not be overcome by taxing he people of our trade area for the privilege of parking on our streets." 3 Admit Lakota Three men, arrested by Mason City police at 4:25 a. rrti Saturday in a car which held a small arsenal, have admitted robbing two Lakota business places sometime early Friday. Sheriff Ralph Lindhorsl, working with Mason City authorities, said the men confessed the Kossuth breakins and also a number of others in north ;Iowa. .Being held in the Cerro Gordo jail are Richard Eafl SteeVe, 23, Thomas Rasmussen, 22, and Ray Lewis, 27. The three all have previously.seryed timVA :f6urth man. Allan Cnlzman, was also arrested at the same time but did nor .seem 16 ha^e participated in the Lakota In the car, police found two loaded <revolvers, a rifle arid a quantity of merchandise. The men had been under surveillance for sometime, police said. ,. About $100 was stolen at Lakota, early Friday. At the I» : hillips 66 station, $61.50 was stolen. The robbery was discovered by Earl Ogren,-proprietor., At the A. C. Schissel elevator, between $27 and $28 was stolen, from an unlocked safe.: Art unsuccessful attempt was also made to break into the Brack grocery^ '*' \t j ' x Authorities believe the arrests have cleared up a large number,of thefts and breakins m this area over the past, several weeks. Sheriff LindhOrst/said that prosecution of the men would probably take place in Cerro Gordo county. •' • . Installing New Pews Now At St. Cecelia's Assembly work on the pews for the new St. Cecelia's Catholic church in Algona has begun, and according to.Msgr. P,. P. Gearen, should be ready for use, about the end of'th'e week, f Workmen from the .Svoboda Church Furniture Co., Kewaunee, Wis., have been on the job putting together the Appalachian red oak pews since last Friday. When completed, 864 persons can be seated downstairs and' about 100 upstairs. Kneelers, padded with sponge rubber, and covered with imitation leather, will be installed. Demolition work on the old church is proceeding at\a'rapid, pace, and makes it necessary^ .to use the'new church, even though it is not completed. During the past week, many items from the interior of the old church have been sold or given away to other churches and schools.' The Congregational Church, Algona, the new Catholic church at Dayton, and the new Catholic school at Fort Dodge each purchased some of the pews. Father Pick, formerly located at Whittemore, is head of the parish at Dayton. The main altar, communion Last Line—I^ m» Natural Gas To Start Sept. 1 Natural gas will be ready for use in Algona on State Street and n homes south of McGregor St. oy Sept. 1, Jerry Donovan, manager of the Perry Gas Co. here said Monday. The balance of Algona will be ready for gas by Sept. 18. This is well ahead of the original schedule set by the company an4 local work and work on the connecting line from Belmond, are ahead of the original schedule. Surprise Profit On Paper Route Don Smith, Jr.. who has a Sunday paper route in the farm ares southwest of Algona, collected $2 extra last Sunday, and not from the sale of papers. While, cruising down a gravel road near , the John Kollasch farm, two miles south of the Call State Park, he spotted an animal laying in the road that looked like a dog at first glance. A further check proved it to be a red fox that had evidently been hit by a car Saturday night. After turning the ears in to auditor Mark Mqore, the $? y fif WM paid by $9itU§ vpiat rail, confessional, two statues and pedistles for stations were given to the Dayton parish, and an altar and three stained glass windows were presented to the new school at Fort Dodge, which is in charge of Father Kelly. It is not known when all work on the new church will be completed, but at present, weddings, funerals and masses are being held there. Dedication ceremonies will be announced later.

Swea City To Vote On School Bonds, $278,1 Swea City—A citizen's committee appointed sometime ago to study the needs and future expansion of the Swea City public school system, recommended las week that Swea City voters be offered a proposition to vote on a $278,000 bond issue for new school construction and expan sion. It is believed that the vote wil be held sometime in September The bond issue if -approvec would cover new construction o nine elementary classrooms, eacl with 900 square feet of space; 250 square feet for instrumental and vocal music; a 50x60 foot combina tion shop with classrooms, a fin ished room and storage; enlarge ,ment of the present boiler plant additional"sit'eTarchitect's f ee-anr some new equipment, as well a smaller rooms for offices ant storage. The 900 sq. foot elementary classroom and 1200 sq. foot kin dergarten is the smallest recom mended by -the State Dept. o Public Instruction, It was estimated that it woulc take a 3% mill levy per year for 20 years to pay the bond issue This figures out at 45 cents pel acre per year on an improve: farm. On the average home in town, without homestead or soldiers' exemption, it is estimated the cost would be about $11 per year. After hearing all sides, the committee felt that its proposal was as conservative as possible, considering the needs. The plan as approved was scaled down from the $340,000 floor plan first considered several months ago. Remodeling of the old building and improvement of the playground will be paid for from the general fund, and not from thq bond issue.
