6—Algona Upper Des Molnei Tuesday, April 11, 1950 $100 In Prizes, Sunday, At Annual Kite Jamboree Next Sunday afternoon—April 10—the sky northeast of Algona will be filled with flying kites of all shapes and sizes. At least members of the Algona Lions Club hope so, and are now putting the finishing touches on their plans for the annual Algona Kite- flying Contest, to be held Sunday beginning at 2:00 p. m. at the K. C. ball park. The Lions, under the leadership of John Burton, kite contest chairman, have even put in an order with the weatherman—for a nice, sunshiny day with a brisk wind. Many special features are being offered this year, to attract kids of all ages, and grown-ups, too. Approximately $100 worth of prizes will be awarded at the end of the contest, and a special grand prize will be given to the youngster with the best all-around kite. Fathers are to get their just dues also, in a special "Fathers Prize Group," for Dads who want to come out and fly a kite them- selves. Lions club members are at present constructing what they claim will be the "world's largest kite," and plans are to fly it Sunday. A special National Guard detail, under command of Lt. Jess Reynolds, will transport children who do not have transportation, or who have large and awkward kites. These vehicles will pick up youngsters at either the Bryant school grounds or high school grounds beginning at 1:00 p. m., Sunday. The trucks are fitted with special mounted "walkie- talkie" radios for the occasion. Children of the community are reminded that entry blanks should be turned in at their school, Friesner's Sports Shop, or Becker's Sporting Goods store not later than Friday night of this week. If you like to fly a kite, or see a lot of them in the air, the Lions invite you out to join the fun. New Cars," Trucks Move Out In County Two Early Residents Of N. W.
