Sform Lake where he : has been 'pastor of the 1 - Lakeside '' Presbyterian church to.'his, rtew pastorate -at the Rpseiand Presbyterian church In .Chicag^ where he takes over his, duties Dec. 1.' That makes two former Algona pastors with Chicago churches.' The other one is Rev.,M. A.

At the start, of the season our young football fans at home inquired about entering, and we ixplairied they were not eligible to win, 'but j added that they could enter arid if they did rate i: win we'd personally "pay off" equivalent, to what they might have won. Nothing happened until last Saturday; then Tom, age 10, won a technical first place in.the.UDM contest, with 16 out of 20 games right, and the nearest total point 'guess ... : he 'didn't Win the UDM first prize, but the Old Man is .out ten bucks. ~' • ' • •'•*!•' * - * ^ Th,e,ilOyeBAb((ir Issue of The National 'Photographer contairis -a 'story 'entitled "Photography in Profile" written byf^ayne De-< Mouth, former Algona, high teacher now pn the Davenport school faculty, and ! based • on the work of Nels and Kay Isaacson.

They flew by plane from Moline to Nassau, did some deep sea fishing, toured in glass bottom boats, and made a number of scenic tours. Quite a change, too, getting back home. « r « • One new suggestion made as a remedy for present prices of hogs, is revival of the food stamp plan. This makes three major suggestions on the subject, the other two being withdrawal of land from production and shifting the farm program from flexible supports back to 90 percent parity support. The food stamp plan would simply be that those -on relief, old age assistance, Social Security and aid to dependent children and blind, would be partially taken care of by food stamps, redeemable in pork, thus supplanting in part the present all-cash payments or vouchers to be spent as the recipients see fit. Nobody has ventured a guess as to how much added consumption of pork this might bring. But it would mo^ve pork. , « * « Some men lead planned, well- ordered lives.' \ Who does the ordering?

Mothers Flee Fire In Burt School Annex Burt—Both the Burt and Bancroft fire departments battled a stubborn blaze in the Burt school Annex, last Wednesday evening, before bringing the flames under control, A dinner was underway in the Annex when the alarm was turned in at about 5:30 p.m. and the Band Mothers group made a hurried exit. Food was rushed from the kitchen and cars parked nearby were rapidly moved as the fife companies arrived on the scene. A high wind from the west kept the flames away from homes just south of the Annex. The Annex was built in 1949, and has been used for the homemaking and manuel training rooms, and a welding shop. Much cjamage was done to all, particularly the manuel training and welding shop. On Dec.' 9 the voters of the Burt area will vote on whether or not they wish to sponsor a $250,000 school bond expansion program, and the fire in the Annex may have some bearing on the outcome of the vote, it is felt.

Exley owned the car, a 1953 Pontiac, but, Pacheco was driving it for him. The; car passed one truck and started to pass another, just before getting to the bridge. At that point the driver saw another machine approaching • from the east and also saw the narrow bridge. The car swerved into the ditch on the north side of the road, and then slid and < crashed into the dredge ditch on the north side of the bridge. Visibility was poor, and the driver .did not see the narrow bridge until he swung out to pass.
