Upper Borrows Tractor To Halt A Fire Last Sunday alternonn a "far- mor hero" really got into action I" help a neighbor. Harry Woods,, who tenants the John Crowell farm 5 miles east of Algona on 169, looked up and saw flames and smoke across the highway on the Arnold Danic.l- son place. He rushed to the scene, saw that a field of straw WHS in flames, hitched a plow to the Danielson tractor and was otl in a cloud of smoke. Woods ploughed a furrow around the burning field as fast as the tractor would go and proof of his speed, was shown by dirt from the furrow, which flew six feet. His efforts were instrumental, along with prompt response of the Algonn fire laddies, in saving a stack of 900 bales of hay and another of 600 straw bales. Danielson. who was in Algonn at the time and followed tHe fire trucks out to his place, is another farmer who is thankful for helpful neighbors.
