Corn Allotment, County, Received Kossuth ASC office personnel were busy this week breaking down the county corn allotment figure for 1957 for Kossuth county into the individual county farm allotments, and these figures are expected to be ready by the end of the week. Other than that, there was nothing new in the way of information on the impending Dec. 11 vote by farmers in this area on the type of corn program they favor for 1957. On Dec. 11, all farmers and land owners will have a chance to indicate their preference between two tvpes of program set up by Ezra Benson, Secretary of Agriculture. iflotncs ISTAWUHID IMS fcnteted M Meftnd CUM ftwttef «t the (soatcrfflc* at Al*>rt«, Iowa, Nov. 1. 1933, uhder Act oi Congress of March 3, 1679. ALGONA, IOWA, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1956 3 SECTIONS ~ 24 PAGES VOL. 93 - NO, 48 It's CYPRESS For Algona's Telephones CYpress it is ! That's the new dial telephone prefix — CYpress — that will identify Algona telephone numbers, now in<the process of being assigned to all of the 3,100 Algona telephone users who will in the not too distant future be dialing instead of ,asking for their party by number, ' And thanks to John Claude, local NW Bell manager, the Al- dial exchange will not have to go under the name 'AXmin- ster, nor will it be 'AXtef. Given a choice of three identifying prefixes for Algona, Claude chose 'CYpress' in preference to the other iwa — and local users will no doubt be, glad he did. Somehow AXtel and AXminster have somewhat awkward sounds, while the name CYpress to be a purl of each Algona number, is easy to pronounce and remember, and has a sort of rhythmic tinkle to it.. With assignment of new phone numbers now being made here, to appear in the new telephone directory for the dial system, here are what some of them will look like: Afgona Fire Department — CYpress 4-2434 Algona Police Department — CYpress 4-3515 Chamber of Commerce — CYpress 4-2111 Algona Upper Des Moines — CYpress 4-3535 Western Buyers :— CYpress 4- 2411 Letters are being mailed by the company to AJgona business firms this week, giving them their new numbers, and explain* {fig ways of presenting the new numbers in business forms, stationery, etc. Reason for this, Claude pointed put, is that tele* phone operators from coast to coast — Mason City, Chicago, or New York — will be able to automatically complete a call to Algona merely by dialing CYpress and the five figures of the number here. There will be no distinguishing mark, or letter such as W or J, following local numbers to differentiate between private artd party lines. Also, in making local calls only, the prefix CY need not be dialed with the five digit number. The name CYpress, assigned now to Algona, is the only such one in western Iowa, and it serves to guide long distance calls quickly and automatically to, the right Algona phone. At present, a crew of 35 Western Electric men are working in the new telephone building here, effecting the change-over to dial. Included is a careful analysis of phone usage by various customers, and studies of the time of day most calls'are made. Before the change-over, Claude stated, the new directory will be issued, and full instructions to all users presented by NW Bell Telephone. Adopt - A - Family Thirty-seven families, most of them in Algona and a few in ad- j.acent communities, stand in need of a helping hand this Christmas, according to a compilation of records from Miss Antoinette Bonnstetter, Algona school nurse, and Mrs Marvel Immerfall, director of the Kossuth county emergency relief office.
