April 24,1956 Jftomesi 'Alack-Knights' Organize, Promote Better Driving GAS-TOONS KEN & LEO'S "My . . .' all these credit card* — Leo must like our business!" We want io make a lasting IMPRESSION on all of our customers! ' & LEO'S Phillips ''66" Service Bulk Tank Wagon Service Phone 967 East State St. A group of 25 Kossuth county boys, 18 years of age and older, Who call themselves the Algona Black Knights, have come,up with an idea.that might-,aid the highway safety cause. . Aim of the ; club, which has'Mo' limitations on f the' number of members, isi to keep young drivers from racing; and driving recklessly on highways and at the same time further their education along mechanical.lines. The boys'meet, every'other Thursday night and began having meetings Friday night. Feb. .24. At present they hold their meetings in the basement of the Bernard Yeoman home in Algonaj but are searching for a larger 1 meeting Jiall. President of the organization is Richard Yeoman. Other officers are Roger Hansen, vice president; Don Moore, secretary; Gary Webb, treasurer; and a board of directors, consisting of the • officers and Francis Ryg, Joe Dorweiler, Phil Norris and sergeant- at-arms, Dave Seller. They have a, constitution and by-laws and discuss business at the'beginning of each meeting. Besides promoting better driving, the members are learning the mechanics of autos, body • work, engines, general knowledge of wiring', etc., 'and will build cus- Customizing means giving the vehicle new lines, by lengthening fenders, changing hoods and generally giving the cars an exterior face lifting. It is the hope of the group to have two finished by county fair time so they can put them on display. Dues are $2 every six months, and a member may be expelled or 1 fined by the club for any traffic violations. Arrangements were discussed with the local police and Mayor C. C. Shierk before the club went into operation. Nearest similar club is at Webster City, but many such organizations have sprung up all over the United States recently. The Black Knights also have social activities. They have already sponsored a skating party at the Star Roller Rink with 180 in attendance, and plan other events in the future. Included will be a hill-climb and another, skating party later this spring. Possibility of a permanent meeting place with garage facilities seems assured, according to Yeoman. The club ' will invite guest speakers to its meetings and would like to get a movie projector so movies dealing with autos can be shown. Algona's Black Knights seem to be headed in the right direction. Quadruplets At Reinbeck, a Toggenberg nanny goat recently became the mother of four offspring. Goats frequently have two, occasionally three, offspring at one time but four is an unusual number.
