' ^ When caught, the pair had six cents between them, two five gallon cans of gasoline, siphoned from a parked car somewhere along the way, plenty of tobacco and a stack of maps—indicating they wanted to know where they were going.

Time, June 8 Sen.tral school district voters will gb to the polls for the' fourth ;ime, Friday. June 8, on the question of a $450,000 'band issue to construct and- equip a new high school to serve the Lone Rock- Seneca-Fenton areas. The first three votes all failed- to receive the required 60 percent of those voting; twice by slim margins. The first three locjitions were all rural, that is- not located in any towns in thf area. The -vote on June 8 will differ from previous ones in- that the specified site this time is just easl of highway 44, across from the present Pentpn school, where the Sentral district already owns five acres of land. The area required for the new school as outlined in previous votes was 20 acres. The vote will be held at th? Lone Rock school building, with the polls open from noon to 7 p.m. Some who voted against the proposed bond issue the first three times have based their objections on the belief that construction o;f p new school for the area would be more advantage,- ous, and more economical, if constructed in or adjacent to a town where housing and public utilities are available. Plant 175,000 Pike In River Members of the East Fork Chapter of the Izaak Walton League of Algona and Conservation Officer Frank Tellier of Burt planted 175,000 small northern pike in the Des Moines Rjver Friday.

Eighteen property owners ai)d interested persons were present Monday night at the/qity, hall as Algpna'S; ciw council heldja; near* ing on the resolution of necessity for a proposed system of collection storm sewers in sub-district number one, located in the eastern portion of the city. Practically everyone misunderstood -the reason for the hearing which actually was to determine whether or not the collector sewers should be built to relieve possible flood conditions in the future. ' The misunderstanding brought out several objections to the rate of assessment on some properties by owners. It was made clear at the meeting that land owners will have an opportunity to appear at a latei\ hearing after final assessments, are made for the purpose of filing objections. Written objections to assessments were received from J. W, Pentecost and Mrs Eunice Bowman. They were read and filed. Among persons who questioned assessments were Glen Hain, A. R. Willrett and Loren Courtney. Courtney's spirited talk with the council led to the sale of a lot owned by him to City Engineer Lewis Ferguson for $125 — the assessment figure placed on the properly for the sewer im- provement, Courtney stated-the land in question \vas ; a closed street which had«<been-purchased by" hifti• ibr *$23*fFdhf -the -city ttwt years ago, and he couldn't understand how a $500 valuation could be placed on it now as it is unimproved. Ferguson offered to buy the land and Courtney agreed, a move that proved hilarious to all present. On the more serious side, B. P. Richardson, councilman-at large, gave a full report on the history of sewers in Algona, and pointed out if the proposed project in sub-district number one is completed and bonds sold, the city would be near the saturation point in total bounded indebtedness. The- total indebtedness which can be carried by the city legally is only $513,000, and, as stated by Richardson, Algona will be carrying nearly that amount if the collector sewers are installed. It was generally agreed by the mayor and members of the council that no more major projects can be attempted by the city in less than three years due to the bond load at present. No decision was reached on the installation of the collector sew- t>rs, although none of the objectors ^resent were against the project's completion. ' Car Hit Bridge Headonln Sunday Crash Four teenagers had a narrow escape last Sunday night when , an auto, driven by Tlobert Kuhlmann, 19, Algona, crashed head- on into a bridge abutment four miles south and one-fourth mile west of Algona.

It went' out on the shoulder of ' the road and hit the bridge abutment almost head-on, according to Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst, who investigated the scene. Damage ' to the auto was estimated at $500. Three of the youths, Grill, Ryg and Ristau, were feeling pretty" good Monday, although Ristau. had been unconsious until 4 a.m. Monday, following the accident,,; Kuhlmann is under an oxygehf tent at present. ,. .
