Cancer Group Presents Book To Library Mrs. Lyle R, (Bud) Anderson, south Kossuth Crusade chairman in the drive for cancer ftmds, has presented to the Algona library a book, "The Climate Is Hope", by Walter Sanford Ross. It tells the story of cancer in terms of individual *"""3" beings, with the personal stones of Arthur Godfrey, who was cored of a cancer which seemed almost fatal, and of Virginia Graham, another star of radio and television, who was also cured of cancer. The book helps to unwarranted fear of the dread disease, with proof that there is hope for a final answer to cancer and a cure. All royalties from sale of the book go to American Cancer Society. Algona firemen answered three calls within a 14-hour period Thursday and Friday - and two of the calls were to put out fires in the same auto. First, firemen hurried to the farm of Julie Baas, three miles east and a mile north of Algona at 11 a.m. Thursday where sparks from a trash fire spread to a fiberglass boat and wood pile nearby, igniting them. The boat was destroyed and a portion of the wood burned. Insurance covered the loss, according to Mr. Baas. Mr. Baas is shown in the middle of the above photo as he moved wood around so firemen could splash all the burning embers. He was in a field when the fire got its start and drove to the yard on a tractor, then kept the blaze at bay with a garden hose until firemen arrived. A small building and LP gas tank nearby weren't threatened. Damage was estimated at $190. At 8:40 p. m. Thursday, fire broke out in the rear seat cushion of an auto owned by Bob Reefer, Algona, at 1420 E. Oak street. An estimated $75 damage resulted before firemen put out the blaze. At 12:35 a. m. Friday, fire completed gutted the Reefer auto, which was parked at 519 S. Minnesota street. The fire got its start from wiring under the dash, according to Fire Chief Ralph Elbert. As a result of the two fires, the auto was a total loss.
