Me Donald,52, County Supervisor, Rites Nov. 2nd Mr* Malinda Roberts • • • If you saw that super-duper scem-cruiser double deck bus around Algona last week, it was being manipulated by a former Algona man, Jim Bishop, whose father was the Northwestern agent here for many years. Jim left Algona to enter the naval air corps and wound up as a crack Marine lighter - bomber pilot. After the service he became associated with the Greyhound Company. The bus he was driving is one under charter to the Anheuser-Busch Brewing Co of St. Louis, and is used to lake distributors and dealers to St. Louis for meetings and inspection nips. The vehicle is valued at $90,000. He says he'll be come through again at the first opportunity. • • • The big debate over the mayor campaign is overshadowing the traditional discussion and forecasting of even the Iowa-Minnesota football game, something that never happened before. It's a good, healthy thing to have genuine interest and plenty of candidates for an election. And it is also good to find that every candidate is wholeheartedly in favor of encouraging industry and trying to develop more for the community. • • • Even the Big Boys make bloopers once in awhile, as witness this paragraph from a Des Moines Tribune story about the woman who accidentally shot her husband in the east: "Mrs Woodward, crying incoherently into the telephone, had Duke of Edinburgh ride directly to Buckingham Palace on their return from their Scottish weekend." Such things add zest to reading the paper. * * * Before the members of the Presbyterian Men's Club pounce on us, we want to get this item in, with greater detail next week —they are sponsoring the appearance Nov. 15 of Merle G. Jones, widely known business man from Beatrice, Neb. who will speak following dinner at 7 p.m. More next week, Andy. Space is pretty tight this weeVi * * * Famous Last Line—I don't want all the votes, I just want yours., Rites Nov. 2 For Ledyard Farmer Herbert R.

Each Candidate Confident Ot Final Victory Algona's six-man race for tho iffice of mayor was hitting high jiear this week, with the election, next Tuesday. Nov. 8, only a fo\v days away. Every one of the six candidates is waging an active campaign, and all have expressed confidence as lo the outcome. While the mayor race is holding the spotlight, the three contested races for the city council are also generating steam, although to a lesser degree than with the mayor candidates. The six candidates for mayor are Herb Adams, Wm. J. Becker, Roy Hutzell. Dr. C. C. Shiork, Frank Vera and Charles Wagner. Nearly all nf the candidates are circulating campaign material, ranging from cards and posters to personal letters, in quest of votes. The general local sentiment seemed lo be thai it would be a tight race right down to the wire with at least four of the candidates conceded a chance to win, and none of them conceding a thing lo their opponents. Despite the sixe_ of the field, for the most part "there are few personal enmities being exhibited. Each- candidate sincerely believes that he would be qualified for the office, and the chief difference between candidates seems to be based on their own individual viewpoints as to what would be best for the city of Algona. Even here, however, all of them have spoken in favor of greater effort to bring industry to Algona. In addition to the election of city officers, voters will be asked to decide on whether or not the city should have a special bond issue for 845,000 to construct a city garage to house the city's street department equipment. The equipment is roughly valued at about $100,000 on present day purchase prices. This bond issue will require a 60''r majority to bo successful. Polls will open at 8 a.m. next Tuesday morning, and close at 8 p.m. In the first ward race for the council, Arthur E. Obrecht and Eugene Furst are the candidates. Leon H. Laird is unopposed in the second ward. There aro three candidates for the council from the third ward, Mel Griffin, Arnold W. Elbert and A. R. Willrett. In the fourth ward tin- contest is between Richard Cook and John Dreesman. Councilman-at-large candidates are Vic Parsons and B. P. Richardson, and with two to be fleeted at large there is no contest. Griffin, Cook and Parsons are present members of the council. As an added incentive to vote, the Algona Teen-Age Driving Club is offering its services to drive voters to the polls, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The service free; call 199 if you want a Elmer Langmack is the only candidate for the park board, which carries a 6-year term.
