Smoke enveloped much of the Mobarton neighborhood lot 30 minutes Friday afternoon when fire was discovered at the Ray Haueen house at 2:45 p.m. Two Aigona fire trucks answered the call and extinguished the blaze, which caused extensive, although unestimated damage to the structure. Although the fire hardly got through the roof, it did raise havoc with the interior walls, plaster and paint, and shrouded the area with smoke that proved a hindrance to fire fighters. Many friends and neighbors of the Hauge.ns aided in carrying out household goods and clothing. It was necessary for firemen to chop holes in the walls to get at the blaze and put it out. Cause of the blaze may have been defective wiring, although it is not certain. Mr Haugen is employed by Torsten Lagerstrom and Mrs Haugen works in the ready-to-wear department at Graham's store. (Upper Dos Moines Newsfoto) Slumber Party The biggest "slumber ps»- ly" in Algona's history look place here last Saturday nighl, when abou't 50 4-H boys and girls from different points in the county were "bedded down" for the night in Aigona homes. The fifty 4-H-ers stuck .it out on their annual 4-H Club Day here and despite the raging blizzard stayed right on through to the end. After the evening program at the high school Annex-, they were just plain snow-bound in Ai- gona, but with typical 4-H resourcefulness they managed to line up places to sleep for the night. Several dozen Aigona homes therefore had unscheduled "slumber parties" last Saturday night — and 4-H Club Day actually lasted over until Sunday morning for the marooned boys and girls.
