4-Algona, (la.) Uppor Dei Moirtat Thunday, April 14, 1966 Swimming Pool For West Bend Being Planned Members of the West Bend Swimming Pool Committee, with the Town Council and the Board of Education of the West Bend Community school, report they are arriving at the final stage in their plans for a swimming pool for the West Bend area. At the March 7 meeting of the council a preliminary contract was entered into with Dewild, Grant, Reckert and Associates, an engineering firm of Rock Rapids, Iowa, whereby this firm agreed to make a survey of possible pool sites in West Bend, and of the population of the area which a pool here would serve; and to obtain other pertinent information needed before actual plans could be drawn up and construction begun. Since October, 1965, when it was announced that a large part of the amount necessary for a pool had been ear-marked by the West Bend Council for that purpose, members of the committee have given much time and effort in traveling to inspect pools in towns of a size comparable to West Bend. Now the committee states that the results of their study and planning, along with those of the Rock Rapids firm, will be made known within the coming weeks. P.CA.

Male Strong Communities "In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths." — Proverbs 3:6 When do we turn to God for help? Is it only during hours of darkness and despair? In business transactions, do we do nothing more than pray for the "break" we need, for the "big sale" or the "big deal"? B In our day-to-day relationship with friends and neighbors, are we concerned with what is fair and proper, or just with having our own way about everything? There are no daily visions to guide us, but the example has been set in the life of Christ upon earth and are essential to the Christian way of life. Recognize God in everything that you do, every day of your life, and your life will be well directed.
