ALGONA, IOWA MAftOMAL GUARD MUSTER DAY MAYOR'S PROCLAMATION As mayor of the city of Algona, Iowa, I wish tb call to the attention of our citizens the importance of the one-clay recruiting drive of the National Guard here February 18, 1956. At the moment the National Guard of this, country is at the greatest strength in its history. But our military planners wish it to be larger still. This in in line with present policy of strengthening our reserve forces so that we will not have to support indefinitely a large, active military establishment.

For these reasons, I appeal to the citizens of this community to support wholeheartedly the coming effort of their National Guard to enlist new members. Mayor Cameron C.
