Armstrong Youth Injured In Bancroft Crash BANCROFT - A rural Armstrong youth, Timothy Guerdet, 18, is hospitalized at Holy Family Hospital at Estherville with back bruises as the result of a car, tractor accident Thursday near Bancroft. Thomas McGuire, 31, of Bancroft, was driving a tractor with a loader and chasing a hog on a blacktop road 2 1/2 miles northeast of Bancroft about 6:15 p.m. Traveling on the left side of the road, he turned back to the right side, colliding with the car traveling west driven by Guerdet.

Highway J69- Continued from Page One - A DIFFERENT VIEW Others, speaking on behalf of property owners on the Phillips- Oak route, and the five service stations and one grocery on State and Jones, said relocation would have a great impact on total business and especially the six aforementioned businesses. It was also noted that the routes would change property valuations and taxes. Attorney Leo Cassel, speaking for the six businesses, said the Highway Commission approached the problem "wrong" in thinking that the Phillips-Oak route was the "only feasible route . . . That's not true." Cassel said the decision should be based on what is "best forthe community." Many of the prob- lems discussed Thursday were similar to both parties to the controversy (49 owners on State- Jones, 70 on Phillips-Oak) . .. trees cut ... right-of-ways which require the acquisition of land .... safety considerations.
