HEESfi A Lttll* ol TMi, * Lliilt ei fh*it Hoi Much 61 Anything Yep, I'm a member of the Iowa Pioneer Lawmakers and it was one day last week that the Lawmakers met in Des Moines, at the state house, and they had a big feed and there was plenty visiting about past activities of lawmaking, etc.. etc. And all that Whofi Coming in MAY? , time f had to print and print and print and 310 didn't h#ve time to feed and " argue with the Lawmakers. Yep, I'm still a democrat and it was in 1930 that I was elected to the state senate and in Marshall county, which had always been republican, and I was the first democrat to have been elected to state office, and so I've got a right to be proud, because on account of it was by virtue of the republican Vote that 1 became a state senator, so to speak. Yep, I'm a member of the Iowa Pioneer Lawmakers and I'm still a democrat and I brag about both of those situations, so to speak. it was just the other day that I received a fishing calendar issued by a Des Moines gent who 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 based on fishing experience over many years. And he .has a forecast covering every day in the yeal- 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 BNAMBI. THE PAINT DISCOVERY OF THE CENTURY!

IRPILDING BODi iLMER KUBLY CORWITH of the entire week. And by the way, here's wishing you good^ bites and lots of luck, so, to speak. The paftf week ha> *ufe beefi H busy one from a lawn raking standpoint and no doubt there have been billions and billions of leaves raked into piles and burned to the high clouds. In our lawn we raked up over three bushels of leaves and several times I had an urge to count the leaves in one of the bushels and so arithmatic the total number gathered. And Beecher Lane told me he'd be glad to furnish the adding machine and even help me count the bushel of leaves. And so it is, I'd get plenty.of help in arithmaticing the leaves a bushel of leaves fflsrri my lawn but maybe they did that because they knew I'd already my leaves raked. But just think of this: To what number in the billions do you think the leaves in Algona would reach? It's a cinch there are plenty and plenty. Another sign thai spring has finally arrived and is with us is that I drained the radiator of my Buick and so stored the antifreeze liquid and which I 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" the past several months. And it; was Don Smith, Jr., who suggested that I drain my Buick every night commencing with October 1st, and by driving it throughout the 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 some way .by which the younger gent drivers who have no regard for speed in some of the residential streets in Algona could be taken care of because on account of there seems to be jquite a number. I live on 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 of about five blocks tfirior 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 reach- ed'Fair street. Maybe it's none of my business but I still main,ain that speed regulations should be observed, and South Minnesota is one stretch 1 * 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 ipeed 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 ol 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 Changed By Council Zoning, city property and building permits came up for discussion as AJgona's city council held a five hour meeting April 11. An amendment to the city zoning ordinance was passed. Property in blocks 225 and 237, adjoining East State street, was made available for commercial use by the amendment. All property in the area had previously been considered in the multiple dwelling 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 time that a grbcery 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 Gilbert, Frank Stebritz, Mrs Edna Hair, John Chrischilles, Tom Sampson, Irvin Etherington, Ran* ney 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 home built on South Harlan street. It was decided by the council to have all city properties now listed for sale taken off the list and 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 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' Ford F600-154 truck, complete with Marmon-Herrington conversion, snow plow and hoist and mud and snow 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 pleted 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 pricfc 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 and a 5-cent-per-pound deduction from slaughter latnb and yearling payments will be made to 17-36 present have out-lived will replace the out chairs which their comfort. A class C beer permit was allowed for Raymond J. Miller and class B beer permits were issued to the V.F.W. and' Mopse lodge: The street department was instructed to bring Roan and Nebraska streets to grade and City. Engineer Lewis Ferguson was 'instructed to investigate the possibility of blacktopping anci curbing jobs around various public schools in the city. The l meeting adjourned 12:22 a.m. Thursday.
