Several Legislative Plans To Divide Kossuth County Legislative redistriding proposals for Iowa seem destined to have a direct bearing on Kossuth County. While final realignment of seats in both House and Senate had not been completed as of Friday, changes seemed certain. enat0 H W T e Keith ' now ^Presenting Kossuth , C( T ties ' U was Possible he might be moved into u Deluding Kossuth and Hancock, in which case he and H. L. Ollenburg, Garner banker, would be competing for the same seat. Both are republicans. n ^!l* e P reset >tative Berl Priebe has even more dangerous possibilities. One suggestion would divide Kossuth into four areas, each area jointly hooked Into adjacent counties for state representative seats. At present Priebe represents the south half of Kossuth and Humboldt, in itself somewhat oddball Court rulings have held that districts should be as nearly equal in population as possible. Pork Queen Contest Set Fenton Man mond E. Zinnel, ' Whittemore, Pontiac, Robert H. or Dorothy J. Cast, West Bend, Chrysler.

(Algona Publihing Co. photo) Wind Damage On Swea Area Farms Memorial Day SWEA CITY -Variousamounts of rain were reported the afternoon of Memorial Day, when high winds, hall and rain slashed across new fields of corn and soy beans. Water was roaring through culverts, and wending its way around hills to dredge ditches, which were overflowing. Soil lay in small table lands at the bottom of rises in the fields and along road ditches. Some three inches of rain fell between 5 : 30 and 6:00, or shortly after in the vincinity of seven miles northwest of Swea City. A few trees were toppled by the high winds, a building on the Charles Thompson olace, north of Swea City, was blown down, and a barn, which was. being used as a machine shed, was blown down on the Jim Rock farm, where the Kurt Hansmanns wliye^.7 miles -north and.a'.mile • WesFbf Swea city. V - >'• The barn housed a self-propelled combine, corn planter, and spray-equipnjent, the latter which was standing just outside, and on which the barn crashed down on. The cupola of the barn just missed the house, and all the flying debris blew toward the house. It was thought that maybe a twister hit the barn as it seemed that the machinery had been turned somewhat. No estimate of the damage to the machinery could be made until the wreckage could be lifted from these items. The Hans- manns were at home at the time of the storm. - o RECEIVES DEGREE Sheryl LeRee Himes, (Mrs. Robert Himes) daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Francis Torine, received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education Sunday at Upper Iowa University at Fayette.

Larson was charged with failing to yield one-half of the roadway. There was $50 damages to the pickup and $300 to the Miller car. Trucks were predominately the vehicles involved in four crashes last week, with a second investigated at 12:15 noon, 6 1/2 miles west of Algona on highway 18 at the entrance to the Bjustrom Bros. farm. Gerald Besch of Whittemore was turning his pickup into the Bjustrom farm drive when it was struck from the rear by a 1966 Plymouth driven by Lucy Heiderscheit of Dubuque. There was a combined $1,500 in damages to the vehicles and no charges were filed. Aircraft spotting traffic on the highway 169 detour Tuesday afternoon noted a truck stopped on the highway and summoned Patrolman Cogdall. Shortly before Cogdall arrived, Ruth Ann Thilges of Bode stopped her 1967 Ford behind the stopped truck to see if she could assist the stalled driver. Her car was struckfrom the rear by a 1971 Ford driven by 73-year-old Herbert F.Tollas of Lake City. There were no personal injuries involved but there was an estimated $750 damages to the Thilges vehicle and $700 to the 1971 Ford.

Algonan Gets College Honor TOM CLAUDE, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Claude, Algona, was recently honored as the Most Inspirational player on the 197071 Luther College basketball team. There's no finer honor coming from coaches and teammates. . . Tom probably won't play basketball professionally the way an All-American would, but I think he's won the better of the two awards. Incidentally, Claude did win a national honor, the All-Lutheran team. - o - GARRIGAN*S off to a fast start in baseball. Coach Joe Asco- 1'ese's team has lost a couple of games - to Mason city Newman and Twin Rivers - but team statistics are more impressive. The Bears were hitting .427 as a team going into a Saturday game. . Dale Fandel and Mike Skilling were each hitting .500, and Steve Skilling was close behind at about .486. THE BASE running results have been just as favorable with only one man thrown out in 51 attempts. The team is averaging from 10 to 12 steals per game. Jim Bormann had nine steals before being caught Friday against West Bend. He's done his share in stopping opponents from stealing, throwing out runners from his catching position six of the 15 times they've tried. PITCHING HAS also been strong although the competition has not been the best. Bud Lickteig hasn't given up a hit in two games. He also leads the team in runs batted-in with 13. Hasn't anyone told him pitchers can't hit? Ron Eischen has 12 rbi's. "EISCHEN doesn't have real 30 Algona Boys To FCA Camps Twenty boys from Algona and Garrigan high schools,-under, the direction of Father; "Verne <p.

On The Square KAUTZKY'S Fort Dodge, Iowa (MU-23A) good speed," Ascolese said in relating how he got his inside- the-park homer against West Bend. "He came around third base with a big grin. He made up for his lack of speed with a good slide at the plate." - o- ALGONA HIGH has been very much in every one of its four games but has lost three of them. Coach Keith Christie says he's pleased with his team's defense but not with the base running or hitting. "We've hit the ball except against Humboldt," he said. "We're not a strong hitting team but we're better than last year. I think we'll come". . . .The Bulldogs play Iowa Falls here tonight (Monday) at 6:30. Christie said Iowa Falls could be as tough as any conference team. - o GARRIGAN athletic director Steve McCall is one of four Iowa coaches chosen to help conduct a basketball instructional camp at Campion High School In Prairie du Chien, Wise., June 28- July 3. Bob Cousey heads the list of basketball notables taking part in the camp. ' 'SOME TYPE of summer camp is excellent," McCall said. "That's why we're having one of our own this year in Algona."
