It was just the oihet day ttiai I received a fishing calendar is« sued by a Des Moines gent whp is an, expert in the art Of fishing", etc. And he has edited a fishing calendar for 1956 and his predictions prove interesting; His fishing forecasts are base"d on fishing experience over many years. • And he has a forecast covering every da'y in the year of 1956. And he says that fishing next week will be best in the ; evenings through the entire week. So those of you who have the bait, the equipment, the time and -the love for fishing take note and do your casting during the evening FLOOR ENAMEL THE PAINT DISCOVERY OF THE CENTURY!

And by the W6>j hele'fi Wishing you good bites'aftd lots of luck, so to speak. The past week has'sute beitt A busy .one frorh a latfn faking standpoint and no 'doubt there have been billions and billions of leaves faked into piles . and burned to the high clouds, In our jawri'. we raked 'up .over three btis'hels 'of leaves and several timesj had an Urge to count the leaves in one of the bushels arid so arithjnatLc the total number gathered. And Beecher Lane told me*,he'd;be/glad to furnish the adding <; rnachine and even help rfie c'OUnt, the bushel of leaves. And so, it is, I'd get plenty of help in arithrriatlcing the leaves a bushel of leaves frpm my lawn but ttayBe they did-that because they knew I'd already my leaves raked. But juSi think of this: To what numbei* in the billions do you think'the'le'aVes in Algona would reach? It's a cinch there are plenty and plenty. v 17-36 Another sign thai spring hft finaUy arrived and is with Us is that I drained the radiator of my Buicfc" ; and so stored the antifreeze liquid and whtchj will use again come next thanksgiving day, so to speak. And here's hoping that the warmer and pleasant summer days will stay with us as long as have the colder and-winter weather days through ;he past several months. And it was Don Srhith, Jr., who suggested that I drain niy Buick'every night commencing with October 1st, arid by driving it throughout' :he day the water wouldn't freeze, and if drained over night there would be no danger of a busted radiator to begin with, and maybe he's got something there, so to speak. I sure wish there was sonie way-by which the younger gent drivers who have no regard for speed Mn some of the residential streets in Algona could be taken care of because on account of there seems to be quite a number. I live on j South Minnesota street and there are times when I feel like the street was a race track by the way the drivers "step on it" on South Minnesota.. There is a stretch on South Minnesota bf about five blocks prior to turning on Fair street and where there are no interlocking streets from the west and so that virtually at times becomes a race track and 30 and 40 per hour seems to be the pace of many drivers. 1 have driven the stretch many times and held my bus right on the 20 per hour speed and which is plenty fast on a street and yet one day last week there were seven cars passed me as though I was standing still before I reached Fair street. Maybe it's none of my business but I still maintain that speed regulations should be observed, and South Minnesota is one stretch where "stepping on it" seems to be popular, so to speak. True, because there are no residences on Fair street, the south side, it seems as though speed could be 'overlooked, and it is true that many drivers do overlook, and hence speed is plenty common on Fair street, following the length of the fair grounds sectional blocks, so to speak. Swea City Girl Wins Scholarship A Swea City girl, Mary Dolan, has been named as the 1956 winner from Kossuth' county for a three-year nursing scholarship awarded by the Iowa Division of the American Cancer Society. She has chosen Mercy Hospital, Des Moines, for her training. There were 50 girls from 38 Iowa counties selected from 144 applicants. Each of the 50 awards grants tuition fees, books and uniforms for the three years, starting this fall. In 1953, the award was won by Lita Barker of Fenton, whose chose St. Luke's hospital \ in Cedar Rapids for her scholarship training. Lavonne E. Bleich of Burt won the award in 1952. She selected Providence, Oregon, hospital City Zoning Law By Council Zoning, city property and building permits came up for discussion as Algona's city council held, a five hour meeting April 11. An amendment to the city zoning ordinance was pasa'ed.i Property in blocks 225 and 237 f : adjoining East State street, was made available for commercial- use by the amendment. All property in the area had previously been considered in the multiply dw^eljing bracket. The change in the ordinance paves the way for future commercial use of the land if property owners wish to sell for that purpose. It has been rumored for some tirrte that a grocery store and gasoline station, would be.- built in block 237 if the ordinance were changed. A total of 13 building, permits were okayed. They were issued| to Bowman Builders! Glenn J.; Hike, Bernard Briggs, Ray Gilf bert, Frank Stebritz, Mrs Edna Harr, John Chrischilles, Tom Sampson, Irvin Etherington, Ranney Leek. Theodore S. Herbst, Kossuth Motor and P. R. Irons. Bowman Builders will construct- a.$13,500 home on East Lucas street, while Herbst plans to have a $16,000 hofne built on South Harlan street. It was decided by the cbuncil to have all city properties now listed for sale taken off the list ahd re.-appraised. Values of the various properties, which for the most part were established when streets or alleys in different portions of the city were closed, have increased in value, but no. change has been made in the listed sale price. A study of each of the properties involved will be made by appraisers to be appointed by the city and new prices placed on them. Assessments for improvements will be t added to' the price, bringing the entire list up to date for future sale. A representative of the All- Wheel Drive Co., Davenport, presented a proposal to sell a P'ord F600-154 truck, complete with Marmon-Herringto'n conversion, snow plow and hoist and mud and show tires to -the city, for $6,359'.14. The company would make a $1700 allowance to the city for a Dodge Power-Wagon now in use. The offer will be investigated further. The purchase would cost the city $4,656.14 after trade-in allowance. The purchasing committee of the council was instructed to investigate and purchase eight chairs of their choice for use in the council chamber. The chairs will replace the present worn- out chairs' which have ' out-live'cf their comfort. A class C beer permit was al lowed for Raymond J. Miller and class B beer permits were issued to the V.F.W. and Moose lodge. The street department wjs instructed to bring Roan and Nebraska streets to grade and City Engineer Lewis Ferguson Was instructed to investigate the possibility of blacktopping and curbing jobs around various public schools in the city. The meeting adjourned al 12:22 a.m. Thursday. pletect by March 31. A current government report indicates that wool prices during the first 10 -months of the 1955 marketing year averaged 44 cents per pound, grease basis. Since most of the wool eligible for payments in the 1955 program was sold during the 10- month period covered by the report, the average price for the year is not expected to be materially different when final reports are in. If this average holds for the full marketing year, the individual producer may estimate his incentive payment at approximately 40 percent of the price he received for his Wool. On this basis, the payment for lambs sold for slaughter will be about 70 cents per hundred pounds of live weight. These estimates are based on the average incentive price of 62 cents per pound, grease basis. Incentive payments for the first year's operations under the program will be made this summer. A one-cent-per-pound deduction ;from wool incentive payments iahd a 5-cent-per-poUnd deduction from slaughter lamb and year- iling payments ,will be made to STATE FARM 80-20 AUTO INSURANCE PAYS FOR "SMALL- ACCIDENTS TOO!
