Preliminary plans call for a noon day luncheon by officers of the Safety Council for distinguished guests, with the parade to follow at two o'clock and the flag-raising and dedication at 2:30. Governor N. G. Kraschel has been invited to give the main address. Others invited Include Dr. Robert O'Brien, Secretary of State; Lew Wallace, Motor Vehicle Commissioner; John Hattery, Chief of the Highway Patrol; Earl Hall, President of the Iowa State Safety Council; Phil Sproul, Secretary of the State Safety Council; Lester Wilkie, Treasurer of the State Safety Council; Vic Stueland, State Safety Director for the American Legion; and Matt Thompson, Eighth District Director of the Iowa State Safety Council. The Idea of raising county safety flags in the county seats was Inaugurated over a year ago by Lloyd Edson at Marshalltown. The safety flag is purchased and raised, and Is expected to remain at full staff until an accident Involving Injuries or fatalities occurs in the county, at which time it is lower- ed to half staff for twenty-four hours. Last year KossMh county suffered twelve fatalities In the last six months of 1937, and fortunately, to date this year no one has been killed as a result of a motor vehicle accident In the county. In appointing these committees, President R. B. Waller of the Kossuth Council, suggests that the band committee endeavor to have not only the two local bands in the parade, but bands from other communities, especially, from Kossuth county. He also Is asking the parade committee to arrange for participation in the parade of all school children of Iowa and rural schools of the county; suitable floats de picting safety features and a full line of trucks and cars; he also urges every car driver In the county to join the County Safety Council before Safety Day, so that every car will have the yellow safety emblem on the rear license plate. 36 Republicans, Democrats File for County Offices Here Bullheads Are Biting—And Titonka Woman Knows How to Get Them at Night .

In 1900 he came to Iowa, and purchased a farm five miles north of Algona in Union township. September 26, 1879, he married Evelyn Hoisington, who died ten years ago. Following her death he made his home with his children and spent the winters in California. Mr. Cruikshank is survived by five children: Arthur and Mrs. J. L. Ditsworth of Algona, Frank* and L. A.
