It came here with several young people who have experienced the movement elsewhere. For purposes of reporting developments here however we have interviewed just two of the proponents-Linda Martin, 21, and David Bilyeu, 20. Both have returned to Algona for brief summer employment before departing for opposite coasts for more work in the movement. Both are graduates of Algona High School and are members of the Presbyterian Church here. The two have been successful in leading several informal, unpublicized (other than wbrd-of-mouth) gatherings of mostly young people of all faiths. Gathering places included the Presbyterian Church (60 kids until midnight), the grassy hillside near the Algona Municipal swimming Pool (40 kids and Mayor' Finn), a rural woodsy location. . . ; —COUNTY SAYS 'NO'- '•' ! . The last site was recommended by adults after . an appeal for a Jesus Rally on the Courthouse square was turned down by the Kossuth County Board of Supervisors. "I went to the Mayor (Bill Finn) first," Miss Martin explained, "he told me it was a county matter," Linda said her path to a county board meeting.' included chats with three elected county officials. . Linda, dressed in blue jeans and wearing a Turn-On-To-Jesus sticker on her back, finally met with the board: "I said we wanted to hold a Jesus Rally, and they asked 'What denomination is that? and 'What kind of lingo do you use f I asked if they had heard of the Jesus Movement, and none of them had. I thought that since they used the square for Memorial Day, it could be used for a religious rally."
