HISTORICAL DEFT. DIRECT VERDICT Counterclaim Also Drop ped in Frambach vs. Schumacher Case A directed verdict for the defendant, and also for the plaintiff, wound up the damage suit In district court here last Friday, in which Walter Frambach, Whittemore, was suing, John Schumacher and Henry Keckfer, in the original action, and In which Schumacher was suing Frambach in a counterclaim. The case took several days to reach the point of the directed verdict .Judge Heald is presiding at this term of the court. The grand Jury was ordered dismissed by Judge Heald without taking up any of the court or jury time. Two eases were to be brought before the Jury, but in both cases a county attorney's information was filed as sufficient legal ground work to handle the cases in question. Both accused parties were out of the state. The procedure also allowed grand jury members, many of whom are farmers, to be home at a time when field work Is near at hand. In the Frambach vs. Schumacher case, the'plaintiff was asking $2,790 damages as the result of an auto accident that occurred Oct. 11, 1937, on highway 44, three miles south of Whlttemore. • In the counter claim, Schumacher was asking damages of $75.

West Bend Will Build Town Hall West Bend: Preparation* for the construction of a new town hall at Went Bend are now under way, following a vote of 64 to 4 in favor of the project, at the recent election. Cost of the new hall Is not to exceed $5,000 it was specified in the election, and bids for the work are being called for. FRIENDLY QUESTION OF POLICY . Algona Is widely known for its excellent municipal light plant. The city has been fortunate in having at the head of Its plant, a man who through the years has built up one of the finest examples of a municipally-owned plant In the state; one that la an example often referred to when municipal plants are discussed. The city also has as its council a representative and highly thought of group of officials, whose own indivdual ability is greatly regarded and not questioned, and a city attorney with a long, fine record of public service. We In no way mean to offend. Interfere or interpose any "monkey wrench" In city management, but do feel that a few words might not be amiss at this time rearding the council's purchase of a new Diesel engine for the city's municipal plant, for which some $61,000 cash is to be paid. We join with all those Interested in the city's welfare in desiring that the plant be kept at its most efficient level in the future, as It has in the past, and 2 FIRE CALLS IN WHuTEMORE LAST FEW DAYS Ella Burke Home, Alfred Meyer Straw Stack Both Ignited Whittemore: The Whittemorc fire company had a call Wednesday morning and Sunday forenoon.

Tho wall paper caught on fire which was over the flu stop. There was a terrific wind Wednesday morning and -U would b*v* fc««a bwardou* to the rest' oAfa* waldAiSTttrt aMth t£ ' tHii Burkv b&mftr' '^* r '-• , Sunday, the Are department was called out to the Alfred Meyer home when a straw stack caught fire while they were all at church. Harvey Simpson who lives just across the road from the Herman Meyer farm, noticed that there was a fire on the yard and went to investigate. He turned In the alarm. The straw stack was just south of a big corn crib and hog house, about 80 feet away, and the wind was blowing quite strong from the south, but there are three big water tanks on the farm and the boys had it under control in a short time.

Wray of Algona wus elected to the board of directors of the National Association of Petroleum Dealers at a meeting held last week at Milwaukee, Wis. Mr. Wray has been active in helping to form u local service station men's organization, in Algona, also. do not desire to offer any objections to the principle of purchasing such an engine. But there is a point of legality to be made, with regard to the procedure used In preparing to purchase this engine. As outlined by Joe L. Long, executive secretary of the Iowa Taxpayers Association, sections 6134-D1 to 6134-D6, 1935 Code of Iowa, under the section with regard to public utility plants, has the following to say: 6134-D1—Contract Authorized: They shall have power to pajr for any such plant, improvement or extension thereof, out of the past earning of the plant and-or out of the future earnings and-or may contract far the payment of all or part of the cost of such plant, improvement or extension out of the future earnings from fcuch plant, and may secure such contract by the pledge of the property purchased and the net earnings of the plant. 6134-D4—Notice of Proposed Contract—Publication: Before any municipality shall enter into such contract as provided In section 6134-D1. for the establishment of a plant, or for the extension or Improvement of an existing plant, to cost five thousand dollars or more, the governing body proposing; to make such contract shall give --thirty days' notice of its intentions to adopt proponed plan* and specifications and proponed form on contract therefor, by publication onee eaeh week for two consecutive weeks in some newspaper of general circulation in the municipality, nnd also in Nome newspaper of general circulation in the State of Iowa, the first publication of which shnli be at least thirty days prior to the time of hearing fixed in said notice. C134-D5 Contents of Notice: Such notice shall state as nearly as practicable the extent of the work; the kind of materials for which bids will be received; when the work shall be done; the time when the proposals will be acted upon; and shall also provide for competitive bids for the furnishing of electrical energy, gas, water or heat. , . vv «m-D4MI>lMN!uttai of Contrrfct: Turtuant to ftaid noM«e „ at such time and place as is fixed therein the governing body shall consider the said plans and specifications, form of contract, and offers and propositions submitted in connection therewith, also any bids for the furnishing of electrical energy, gas, wiiter or heat, together with any objections thereto by an Interested party, and at such hearing or any adjournment thereof, shall have the power to adopt mich offer or offers, propositions, or bids, and enter into such contract or contract*, ax they nhiill deem to be to the bent interest of the municipality. Under the present procedure, 10 days' notice Is being given, and no competitive bids are being called for. Even if the law did not specifically require that bids be submitted, it would still seem to be good business to ask for bids,* merely for the sake of comparative prices that might be presented. The council still retains the final word, and Is not obligated to take Ihe lowest bid, but can accept the one that it chooses as being to the best interests of the city. Such procedure is simply pro- ection for city officials us well H.S anybody else, and eliminates any possible criticism of such a purchase. As a newspaper, we will offer no objections to the purchase under the present procedure at the hearing scheduled for April 18th. len days after the first notice of purchase. We understand that in the present situation, it is deemed thai extreme speed is necessary to procure the engine, because un increased peak load will be coming on the line next fall from the new seed corn plant and will require maximum power. However, the coming of the seed corn plant has been known definitely since the first of the year .und the matter need not huve rested quite so long. As it is. there is only a small difference between ten days and thirly days, und we understand snecincations are ulready prepared. Because of the splendid past record of the Algona plant, we sincerely hope that in Ihe fulure the procedure will prevent any possible criticism of our municipal enterprise. And thut. we believe, was 1 the thought in mind when the legal provisions of the Code of Iowa were druwn up. $5,000 CRASH SUIT OPENED HERE MONDAY Helen McMahon, Plaintiff, Asks Sum of R. C. Bauer, Wesley A damage suit for $5.000, filed by Helen McMahon against R. C. Bauer, Wesley, was under way in district court here today. The petit jury to hear the case was chosen Monday, and actual trial began about the middle of the afternoon. Miss McMahon was riding in her own machine,' which was being driven by Sarah Nesting at the time, near Clear Lake. The car veered cut to pass Bauer's truck, and collided with another machine coming front the opposite direction. Serious injury to the plaintiff resulted. She contends that Bauer suddenly stopped his truck, forcing Miss Neeling to swing out suddenly to avoid hitting him, but resulting in the collision. The defense alleges that the McMahon car was not being driven in such a manner as to keep It under control nt the time. SUGGESTS FINE OF DRIVERS IN EACH ACCIDENT Speaker Here Would Cut Mishaps by Assessment of $25 A suggestion that a $25 fine be exacted on every owner or driver of a motor vehicle that figures in n traffic accident where there is property damage, was made by Vic Stuehland, Forest City, speaking before a meeting of the American Legion post here, last week. Mr. Stuehland Is Legion director for the state on highway safety. He believed all drivers would be much more careful, if such a fine was made mandatory.
