April 1 - Admitted: Kitnberly Olson, Algona, T & A • Despite the spring blizzard which resulted in a complete breakdown in communications in the rural areas, about 200 Democrats met at 35 precinct caucuses around the county on March 28th, according to information received today from the Kossuth County Democratic Central Committee. The purpose of the caucuses was to elect precinct committeemen and women, elect, delegates to the county convention and to discuss possible resolutions to be taken up at the convention. Among resolutions passed at various caucuses were the following: in favor of retaining the right-to-work law, in favor of providing free school bus transportation to all children attending accredited schools, in favor of reviewing drainage assessments throughout the county so that all lands benefited will be assessed, in favor of building up our merchant marine so that the Soviet Union will not surpass the United States as a maritime power. Other resolutions included improvements to be made along the Des Moines river to promote recreational facilities in the county, eliminating the pheasant season for a couple of years, removal of the narrow bridges south of Algona on highway 169, and to require the payment of a bounty on foxes and raccoons. Passage of those resolutions at a caucus does not make them a part of the. Kossuth County Democratic platform; they must be brought'up, at the convention and passed there by vote of the „ delegates.
