Construction Co. of Algona was awarded a $185,972.87 blacktopping contract by the City of Algona following opening of bids at the city council meeting Thursday night. Thi; Everds firm and the Ronald Kenyon Construction Co., Des Moines, were the only firms who bid on the project. Work is supposed to begin Aug. 15, and according to the specifications, is to be .completed by Oct. 15 this year. Included in the project are 100 blocks of Algona streets, practically all of which are gravel at the present time, and completion of the curb and gutter and blacktopping will give the city the best streets it has ever haU The Kenyon firm's bid was enough higher on. some Q^,Uie large individual itemj to make the Everds Co. the successful bidder. The Des Moines oull'Jt also wanted to do the work next year, not in 1955. A slight variation in the bid total of $185,972.87 might be forthcoming, as the possibility of using stone as a sub-base instead of cement is probable. According to engineers who studied the project originally, concrete was deemed a necessary base for some areas. Only one bid was received foi additional curb «nd gutter work on Harriet street. It was for $4,758.88, and the Glover Con<- truction Co., installing the curb and gutter at present, was the successful bidder. Land-owners living on Harriet street petitioned the council to have the work done. Building permits were okayed for Harold Voigt, Richard H. Groen, Universal Mfg. Co., Marc Moore and Tom Sampson. Sampson is going to build a $9,800 home on East Call street. Collins, Thompson and Willis were hired as engineers for the blacktopping project at a cost of $30 per day, and class C beer permits went to East End Grocery and Sjogrcn's Grocery. Both were renewals. Applications for a taxicab license were presented by Eld m Collins, Humboldl, and George St. John, Algona, and a license was awarded to Collins, who formerly operated a company here. New storm sewer will be installed in the Trinity Lutheran Church area in the future. W'.ds for the work will be let Thursday night, Aug. 18, as will sanitary sewer bids for district 12 in the northwest area of Algona.

Harold Fischer, Jr., of Swea City, United States jot ace released as a prisoner of war by the Chinese Reds last spring, was married Saturday at M o n t- gpmery, Ala. to the widow of an air force officer. His bride is Mrs Mary Jane Peterson, Des Moines, who corresponded with him regularity after his capture by the Chinese Communists in Korea. The brief ceremony was performed by Maj. Earl W. Minor, a chaplain at Maxwell air force base near Montgomery. It was the second marriage for both. Mrs Fischer has a daughter, Dana Lynn, 5, by her first marriage, and Fischer has a 0- year old son, Harold, 3rd. Mrs Fischer visited recently at Swea City. The bride wrote to Capt. Fischer while he was a prisoner, and he in turn looked her up after his return home. The romance developed rapidly and culminated in Saturday's nuptials. Refueling Onlookers Persons in this area who heard a loud roar and looked skyward at 3 p.m. Friday afternoon got a chance to see one of the U.S. Air Force's best shows—the re-fueling of a huge B-54 jet by a large tanker plane. The re-fueling hose, was hooked between the planes when they passed over Algona heading west. Witnesses said it reminded them of a scene from the movie "Strategic Air Command."
