April 24,1956 SHppcr Beg jWomes: 'Black Knights' Organize, Promote Better Driving KEN&'lEO'S "My ... all these credit cord* — Leo must like our business!" We want to make a lasting IMPRESSION on ail of our customers! KBN 6 LEO'S Phillips ''66" Service Bulk Tank Wagon Service Phono 967 fast State St. A group of 25 Kossuth county Boys, 16 years of age and older,' who call themselves the Algona Black Knights, have . come .up with an idea that hiight aid. the highway safety cause. ' Aim of the-club, which has no limitations on the' number of members, is to keep- young drivers from racing and driving recklessly on highways and' at the same time further their education alohg 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 Yedman home in Algona, but are searching for a larger meeting hall. 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 Dor- Weiler, Phil Norris and-sergeant- at-arms, Dave Seiler. , 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- Customising 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 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 tTie future. Included will be a hill-climb and another skating party later this spring. Possibility of a permanent meeting pjace 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'lreaded in the right direction. Quadruplets At Reinbeck, a Togg'enberg 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.
