Council Awards Blacktop Work To Everds Bros, Everds Bros. 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. Th>' Everds firm and " the Ronald Kenyon Construction Co., Des Moines. were the only firms who bid on the project. .Work i.-- 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 Alsona streets, practically all of which arr gravel a', the present time, and completion of the curb and gutter r.rv:i blacktopping will give the city the best streets it hab ever had. The Kenyon firm's b:d was enough higher on some of- the large individual item,: to make the Everds Co. the successful bidder. The Des Moines outl.t also wanted to do the work next year, not in 1955. A .-light variation in the bic! total of 8185,972.87 might be forthcoming, as the possibility of u.-'ing stone as a sub-base in- .-'iead of cement is probable. According to engineers who studied the project originally, concrete was deemed a necessary base for --•me areas. Only one bid was received fo; additional curb and gutter work on Harriet street. It was for $-1.758.88, and the Glover Con<- truction Co.. installing the curb ; nd gutter at present, was the >uccessful bidder. Land-owners living on Harriet street petition- id the council to have the work done. Building permits were okayed f r Harold Yoigt. Richard H. Groen. Universal Mfg. Co., Marc M'.mre and Tom Sampson. Sampson is going to build a SO.800 homo .>n East Call street. Collins.

Upper Des Moines-7 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."
