Racing Days A "Success" THIS 1931 BUICK was one of several dozen oldtime cars on display on State street in Algona Friday during "Racing Days," a Chamber of Commerce event,which attracted good crowds during the day.

Three blocks of State street were closed off to traffic for the display of midgets, stock cars and oldtime cars during the day. This 1931 Buick convertible was owned by Mrs. Richard Stockseth of Humboldt. Note the "Hoover for President" sign on front license.

The results of a survey taken last fall, and the fact that there are about 15 area residents in nursing homes in surrounding towns, are evidence that the need does exist. But whether the project will become a reality in the near future will depend on the genuine concern and generosity of everyone. The first idea for making some positive plans for a rest home originated at a Council on Ministries meeting of the Titonka United Methodist Church last September. A meeting was called for representatives from every community organization to meet Nov. 11 to determine what interest there might be and if there was a need for such a facility. At that time a steering committee, composed of Rev. Paul A New Queen Is Crowned A queen's tiara patted from Mitt Janice Struthert of Titonka to Mitt Louite Studer, 20, of Wetley during a Kossuth County /i°!t^ P0r ° ducer/l banquet here Thursday. Miss Mary Reding (left), 20, of Irvington succeeded her sister Jean as runnerup. The banquet and crowning were preceded by competition between nine girls. Each girl was judged on an oral essay and an interview by a panel of three judges. After 40 minutes of delibergtion, the judges singled out two winners, weighing heavily on knowledge of pork production. Miss Studer is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Studer. She is a 1969 graduate of Corwith-Wesley High and now attends Iowa State. Miss Reding is a 1969 graduate of Garrigan High and now attends thtt Univenity of Northern .Iowa.

John Janssen, Shirley Amesbury, Lewis Giesking, Naomi Hansen, Ernest Hofmann, and Irene Peterson spent the next six months finding out all they could about rest homes. Much research and study went into these beginning : stages .in an effort to gain all possible insight into the pros and cons of building a rest home in a small town. Finally, at the recommendation of this committee, and under the guidance of consultant, A. L. Schluter and attorney EldonWin- kel, a non-profit corporation was formed in April. THE TITONKA Community Rest Home, Inc. has 50 members with Arthur Peterson as president. Other officers are Harvey Heyer, vice president; Shirley Amesbury, secretary, and Edward Boyken, treasurer and finance drive chairman. Corporation members areGeo.

At this time, a 20-bed nursing home is planned which would include an attractive entrance and lounge-living room area, pleasant dining room, modern kitchen, supervised well equipped bathroom, and large, comfortable resident rooms. Also, a special beauty-barber room, utility rooms, linen and storage areas will be included in this first phase. Phase two plans call for possible addition of another wing for 20 more residents. THE FIRST phase of construction, including land, building and equipment, is estimated to cost about $150,000. There is no doubt that this sounds like a lot of money; but, when one totals the capital expenditures of thiscom- • munity over recent years, it is in reality a small undertaking. The people of this area have raised well over $1 million for capital improvements in the past 15 to 20 years. This includes 1500,000 by the lour local char- Charges Pending As Car Demolished ,,*. Here Thursday // Of fjj|| Charges are pending against a 17-year-old Algona girl, Jacque Lynn Roethler, after a car which she was driving was demolished when it went off the road one-half mile west and one- half mile south of the Burr Oak Motel about 10:50 p.m. Thursday.

Change Red Cross Meeting Plans The Algona and Titonka Red Cross first aid classes taught by John Dole will combine and meet Tuesday evening, June 22, at 7:30 p. m. in the Veterans Memorial building at Algona. A district court verdict in favor of James Mallory, LuVerne mayor, was overruled by the state Supreme Court in a decision announced Thursday. The Supreme Court ruled Mallory is not immune from a lawsuit for trying to force a man to pay his debts and threatening to keep the man's car until he did. The ruling arose out of a case filed in 1969 by Joseph Osbe- koff against Mallory, individually and as mayor of LuVerne, and against the town of LuVerne. The petition stated that Osbe- koff was involved in a car accident at LuVerne in which he was injured and was taken to the hospital for treatment. Mallory took Osbekoffs car, according to the original suit, impounded it and refused to release it to him. Osbekoff stated in his suit that he was deprived of the use of his auto, a 1969 Pontiac Firebird, and asked $16 a day for its use, $3,000 for the car and $9,000 in exemplary damages. The petition stated that during the period from August 8 to 28, 1969, the car was released to Bjornson Pontiac at Humboldt. A MOTION was filed to dismiss the suit and it was dismissed by Judge G.W. Stillman on Feb. 24,1970. A month later, the case was appealed to the state Supreme Court by Osbekoffs attorneys. The Supreme Court said Thursday Mallory is liable for civil damages if he violated a state law barring "oppression, in public office." Judge Stillman had ruled that Mallory was immune from civil lawsuits because his position as mayor includes responsibility as a magistrate. After Mallory allegedly took possession of the Osbekoff car, the latter, a migrant farm worker, appeared in Mallory*s LuVerne mayor's court and was fined $100 on an intoxication charge and given a 30-day jail term. Osbekoff said Mallory agreed to suspend the jail sentence and part of the fine if Osbekoff would pay three debts owed to a doctor, ambulance and hospital as the result of the accident. Mallory was driver of the ambulance which took Osbekoff to St. Ana Hospital after the accident, OSBEKOFF IN TURN said he couldn't afford to pay the floe and the mayor then allegedly told him he would keep the auto until both the debts and fine were paid. 'According to Osbe- koff, he paid the reduced fine but not the debts, and Mallory still refused to surrender the car. The Supreme court voted 8 to 0 that impounding Osbekoffs car was not part of the mayor's judicial duties. The ruling allows Osbekoff to file a claim now ags'nst Mallory for damages.
