Stat« Historical Iowa Oity; la. By fluss Waller * * * A Up of the hat to Jess Lashbrook and his street department lorce who originated and constructed the new school stop signs to be found in the center of school intersections during the necessary hours. These signs leave no room for doubt as to what motorists should do when the signs are there . .. they should stop. Seems like we have had a number of different ideas used on the matter of school intersections, including costly ones like installation of professional signs, and stationing of men with red flags (which it is estimated would cost about $4,000 a year to opn- ttnue), but this one seems about as simple and practical as it could possibly be, and least misunderstood by a driver — and it's all home-grown. * * * In talking to one member of the Air Force group who finally got back from Florida last week after considerable delay, he remarked that "the trip couldn't have been more snafued if they had been working on how to foul it up for six months." And here we thought that modern methods had removed likelihoods of those old-lime snafus ... it is good to know that things are operating about as normal . . . and a good time was had by all. * • * Harry Thilges was commenting on his plans to smoke sausage. Charlie Clement, one of the listeners, asked him if he used corn cobs for the smoke. "If I did," said Harry, "and you ate the sausage, you'd never eat any again." * * * WASHINGTON FOOTNOTES: Speeches by members of Congress are printed in the Congressional Record at a cost of $80 a page. Last year the bill for this conversation cost the taxpayers $1,336,720. • • • From what we hear, the T-V show of Secretary Benson, with Senator Tom Martin thrown in lor good measure, had a pretty wide, viewing audience in this area. And, according to some of those, if they do follow the secretary's advice and write their congressmen and senators their views on the subject of farm support prices, the Secretary and the Senators are going to have pretty red ears. » * » It's a wise man who won't let yesterday use up loo much of his-today. » * • A former Algona beauty shop operator, Cora D. Miller, is now an ordained minister in Los Angeles and has been doing missionary work along Skid Row in that California city. She was here on a visit last week and to attend an anniversary observance for relatives. Cora left Algona in 1939. She says she makes platform appearances and also plays the piano at various meetings conducted by her organization, the National Full Gospel of Ministers and Churches. She made the trip by car. Usher Burdick is a salty Republican Congressman from North Dakota who doesn't like the farm policy of his party and says so. He's different in one way, however. "I know what will happen if Ike vetoes a farm bill containing rigid price supports; I'll get washed out of Congress, and that's more than a lot of other Congressmen know" says Mr Burdick. Things must be unsettled in North Dakota. . * * * Barry Goldwater. an Arizona senator, now has one of those devices in his office connected to his telephone so that when nobody is in the office any phone caller can leave his telephone message day or night. This is something that most senators prefer Goldwater had never thought of. One of his colleagues said it makes it too easy for "good citizens who get a little exhilirated at a late party to call their senator and tell him off while they're still in the mood." » • • There are only 8 weekly newspapers in Iowa thut are members of the Audit Bureau of Circulations, and only two of the eisht have more circulation (bond fide paid) than The Algona Upper Dt-s Moines ... an audited newspaper can only be one way about its circulation total—truthful. » » « Famous Last Line — (Zsa Zsa Gabor): "I feel more at home when I'm married." ISTAIUSHfD 1063 Entered as second class rfiattet At the pbstoWice at Iowa, Nov. 1, 1832, Under Act of Congress of March 3. 1 ALGONA, IOWA, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1956 3 SECTIONS - 20 PAGES VOL 93 - NO. 9 Senfral School Area To Vote Again On Bonds Cititen's Committee Handling Plans For $450,000 Proposition Voters in the Sentral Community School district, which includes the areas of Lone Rock, Seneca and Fenton, will again vote in the near future on a proposal to construct a new high school to serve the combined area. A citizen's committee has been working on the project, with Mrs Kenneth Jackson as 'chairman. Other committee members are Mrs Ralph Bierstedt, Mrs Clayton Ditsworth, Lawrence Dittmer, Roger Jensen, Claude Johnson, Mrs Sig Loge, Mrs Lyle Newel, Howard Preston, Ervin Ruhnke, Dale Schroeder, Louis Seegebarth, Verl Smith, Mrs Dale Weisbrod and William Wiener. The proposed' bond issue for $450,000 would be retired in 20 years, with a tax levy of about four mills, including retirement of the principle and payment of interest. At the present time the Sentral district has the lowest school tax levy in Kossuth county, where complete educational facilities are offered. The present levy is 20.3 mills including all school funds. The proposed school would, in addition to the regular high school classrooms, include a gym with a seating capacity for 800 spectators, rooms for homemaking, industrial arts, vocational agriculture and hot lunch. A multi-purpose room suitable for meetings smaller than gymnasium size would also be provided. The site to be voted upon is in the northeast corner of the Carl Priebe farm, now occupied by the Lloyd Berkland family, in section 9 of Fenton township. Ten acres of ground for the building site and 10 acres for athletic facilities would be included. Local Mail Must Now Have Complete Street Address Scolded, Dies From Body Burns Eugene Emerson, Elmore, died last Wednesday morning of burns received as the result of being scalded with steam and hot water while changing a soft plug in a boiler at his place of business, the Spic and Span Cleaners. The boiler had been turned off, so that he could go inside to repair a leak. The boiler is about three times the size of a normal homo hot water heater, with an opening in the bottom just large enough to crawl inside. Apparently he crawled inside, removed the plug, and steam and hot water poured out the opening. His wife helped remove him from the boiler. He had 60 to 70 percent of his body burned. After emergency treatment he was rushed to Rochester, where he jassed away. His wife and three children survive. Funeral services were held Saturday. The Post Offi-ce Department has instituted a new system of putting up city carrier delivery mail at first class offices. There will be no names on the carrier delivery cases, only street numbers of the patrons will be on them. Therefore it is very nec» essary that anyone sending mail to people in Algona must have the street and number on the letter in order to facilitate delivery, The post office has no list of patrons or their numbers any more so that it is impossible for the clerks and carriers to look up a name without a street number on the letter. Therefore all local mailers are urged to be sure and have the street and number on all letters where it may be seen. The telephone book is fairly accurate as to street num- bei's as is the city director. Every letter must have the" complete address. All people receiving mail delivery in boxes on posts must have their names on the boxes in addition to their street and number. If all this is not done it will greatly delay the mail delivery, or it may be returned to the sender for correct address. If anyone is in doubt as to What number they should have they can call at the city clerk's, office and get the correct number. Algpna is one of the last cities to adopt this system and .bus been notified by the Post Office Department that it must be done at once. Therefore all concerned are urged to comply with thiise instructions in order to receive prompt service. All patrons receiving mail in post office boxes should have their mail addressed to the, box number instead of their street address. People should also notify their correspondents suit and send mail (correctly addressed. The local post office has card forms available for this action and patrons may have them if they will call for them at the post office. Rural route patrons should have their mail addressed to route number and box number. If any rural patron does not know the number of his box he should call at the post office and get it. Mar. 2 Deadline File, School Board The deadline is only 2% days off .— Friday noon, Mar. 2 — and no candidates have filed to fill the two vacancies on the Algona Community School District board of diretcors. Terms of Paul Hurn and Eugene Hutchins expire at this tim,e, and replacements for them will be elected between noon and 7 p.m. Monday, Mar. 12. It is not unusual for filing by candidates in a school election •to be. late, and it is a certainty there will be enough to complete the board so business will be continued as usual in the future. Mrs Struthers, Ottosen, Dies Funeral services for Mrs Flora Struthers, 83, will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday at the Ottosen Presbyterian church. Mrs Struthers succumbed Sunday evening at Des Moines General hospital after a long illness. She had been a resident of the Ottosen community for 62 years. Rev. A.

Thus far this winter, without the usual blizzards, the county has salvaged perhaps $50,000 in funds that usually are spent for snow removal and equipment repairs as a result of snow storms, according to an estimate made Monday by H. M. Smith, county engineer. Of course, that doesn't mean that we won't get snow and storms yet, but at this stage of the game a net saving over pre- ious years can be expected.

Clark Orton In High Few men who reach the age of Clark Orton (83) remain active in business. Most are content to retire, or at best, putter around with a small flower or vegetable garden, or similar "light work." But Clark keeps very busy with his fruit farm which has become known as "North Iowa's Premier Fruit Farm" of the northern district, which includes the north 54 of Iowa's 99 counties. This orchard has won the Iowa State Fair award of the Premier Growers Banner of three successive years including the Centennial Banner of 1954. Mr Orton was the first white child born in Big Stone county at Ortonville, Minn., At that time the nearest railroad had reached St. Paul, 198 miles to the east. In 1918 Mr Orton came to Al- gpna and shortly afterward married Myrna Minkler whose family came to Iowa in 1856. He served as Kossuth County Clerk for a term of four years after which he returned to his 24 acres of land on the banks of the Des Moines river and adjoining the Ambrose Call State park M> mile south of the Kossuth County court house. To say "retire" gives a wrong impression, for Mr Orton certainly did not retire except from .office. He became the busiest of men planting his orchard and where he still works six or eight hours each day. A visit to the Orton farm is most 'Interesting. One sees log cabins made of the timbers on the acreage, all in use for various purposes' connected with his crops. There is, too, a large cave wherein are placed apples for winter storage. From 1000 to 1200 bushels can be placed there Gear At Age of 83 Clark Orion * * * and as customers come, their needs can easily be handled. Clark has even installed a cider press and at times has sold that commodity, as well as having fresh apple juice to serve to the many friends whom they welcome. dlark is never too busy to talk politics. He will stop in the midst or work to give argument or to discuss some political issue, He held office as a Republican, but for the last 20 years has voted the Democratic ticket for National offices, or as he expresses it, "Since he, was Hooverized in 1932." He lakes Ike but will not support him because of the political element that is promoting him.

Clear Sky But Don't Be Fooled Old Man Winter issued a challenge (the final one, we hope) to everyone in this area during the past week. He got us warm, then cold, then warm again, then cold for the second time, and the net result was a little added snow and lots of influenza. Low temperature for the period was an eight below zero reading Tuesday, but Wednesday wasn't far in arrears with a minus six. It got up to 33 and 35 above Thursday and Friday before making us suffer again. Sunday was perfect, but Monday morning lots of cars needed a push to get started.
