She spent the past weekend with hep mother. ncer who looked over the ground said he would hesitate making an estimate on the cost of putting the ground in shape, and the next day the yellow propaganda sheet said the engineer stated it would cost $25.00U or up, which was quite conflicting. Nobody even mentioned that some fill would naturally come from the basement excavation, and most schools have basements. What would it have cost to put the ground in shape on the Carl Priebe farm site where the proposition was twice defeated? It was oven made to make the voters believe that Fenton wanted the school district to build them a sewer system. This is a gross insult to the Fenton people. The propaganda writer referred to Genesis verse 9 which reads "And the Lord said to Cain, where is Abel, thy brother, and he said I know not, am I my brother's keeper." I think this should work both ways. I would suggest the 8th Commandment "Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor." G. R. Krause Mayor, Fenton, la. No 'Sneak' Act In Petition, Says Fenton Mayor Editor, Upper DCS Moines Algona, hnva Sirs: In the propaganda put out in fimm'etiiin with the 1 recent Sentral school election I want to say tiiat we Fenton people resent bein.y called sneaks. When a petition was filed with the >-(.-hi)ol board (.-ailing for a vote for a .-.rhool to be built across tlu hi;;l]\vay from our present Fenton .school, it was called a .sneak petition. There have been MJIIIC three elections for a site in the country which were all defeated. Why wasn't it fair to tiy another site at Ki'titon, as tin- otlici sites rejected were only li'i' and '.i miles from Fentoii. Any qualified voter in this district has a nj,'hl to circulate a petition without beitiK called u sneak. The writers of the propaganda against the last vote misled the voters in many ways. One was Ihat our drain was inadequate and that tlu-y would have to go clear, to the outlet, and slating that a lot nf farm tile had been tupped into thjs county tile and also a town tile. The writer knows well enough that this was all taken into consideration and provided for when this county tile was put in, as every piece of land was assessed for its water shed. The adverse propaganda said this was a slough. This is a false statement, as this hind is all drained and has never had any water standing or. it .since. If the writer of the propaganda went to the drainage cle; k's office and saw an old map 50 or mure yeaV> old, he no doubt \\ent there to see what size tile wa.-> in the drain and also saw that there- is a 15 and 1 Li inch tile for the main tile which run not far apart i\nd enter into al least three junction bu\cfi and out ayain so that, both tile cany an equal load. But tlie propaganda writer wilfully and intentional!)- slated that there were only two 12 inch lil.-s to carry the water away. Tins was dot'.c unly to deceive t>.» votrrv ("if thr- di-'frict Ii Wiis lii-jt Dialed t;.ul an cn^i- 125 Register At Bierstedt Silver Wedding Fenton — Mr and Mrs Emil Bierstedt celebrated their 25th wcd- diny anniversary Sunday, June 24, with open house for their relatives and friends; 125 registered for the occasion.
