Other precincts came in rapidly after that as the judges were able to get the tallies for each candidate direct from the machine. Only problem, according to Auditor Marc Moore, was in one precinct where the judge misunderstood the instructions and tabulation of votes gathered by candidates enrolled in the current subscription campaign revealed that Mrs. George (Eleanor) Sachau of Titonka was leading by a small margin. Closely following Mrs. Sachau are Mrs. Donald Usher of Ottosen and Agnes Lickteig of Wesley. Otaer candidates are not far behind in the voting at the end of the first week and they can rapidly close the ranks on the current leaders. As they continue their efforts and gain cooperation from subscribers, their vote totals will increase rapidly.

Mayor Bill Finn announced that the presence of "dutch elm" disease in Algona has been verified and all known diseased trees have been removed and destroyed. Mayor Finn added that the problem is just beginning and the cooperation of all property owners is necessary to minimize the effect of the disease in Algona. According to his report, it appears that the most effective program is to remove all dead wood and weak or dying trees, particularly elm trees. The city has been doing this on city street property for the past six years and private property owners are encouraged to start an intensive sanitation program on existing trees on private property immediately. Mayor Finn also suggested that property owners give consideration to replacement plant- ng since there is no known method of guaranteeing that the elms can be saved. He also called attention to the fact that reports have been received from other communities regarding itinerant crews who attempt to capitalize on this ners.
