"I have a brother who has a broken leg," proudly stated one little boy. "That's nothing. I have a sister who has a cedar chest," said the second little boy. ifloiucs AUTHORIZED DEALERS ^9 CHRYSLER MOTORS CORPORATION ALOONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, MAY 26, 1966 Madonna Elbert Weds Madonna Marie Elbert, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Earl Elbert, Algona, became the bride of James Cole Alvey, son of Mr. and Mrs. Randall Alvey, Bancroft, May 7 at 11 a. m. at St. Cecelia's Catholic church.

Ail AcctvnH Fully Inwrt* te $10,000 £«v« Frpm Tb« Tenth — Earn From The Flrii 4% Current Earning* SINCI 1917 - AlOONA, IOWA HOME FEDERAL SAVINGS & LOAN ASSOCIATION "Say, who's that That s my new The Historical Society received from Ida Larson of Fairmont an Interesting little booklet published by the Roland Fisher Post of Swea City listing those who served during World War L The occasion was Homecoming Day, July 29, 1919. It seems to me that this country was quite well represented. No summary is given, but I counted 226 names under the Algona listing alone, with 9 listed as killed in action out of a total of 37 given for the county. The Nugents would seem to have been the most rep- presented family with a total of 4 from the 3rd ward. For the most unusual name, I give the honors to the 1st ward due to the service of one Arthur Martin Van Buren Hurray. I wonder if the Martin Van Buren tribute was due to the term as a Democratic President or his later Free Soil views. This is one of the many types of material that belong in your historical society archives. No doubt very few have survived, the booklet is now in the special war memorial room of the society. Our thanks to Ida Larson for her interest. - o- Attendance at the May meeting of the Kossuth County Coin Club was limited somewhat by the weather, so auction competition wasn't as spirited as usual, yet the majority of the 50 lots found a new home. Some good buys were made as well. Perhaps the most memorable moment of the meeting was the comment of the gentleman who ended up the new owner of three coins from Paraguay. His line when he received his lot was, "I don't even know what the h- I bought.'' They were interesting pieces and that Is what counts. One of the better items in the auction, a 1950 D nickel somewhat dirty but likely an overall fine, brought $11.25. This is another coin where the spread between average circulated and uncirculated is rather narrow, since so many were intercepted before they got into general circulation, -o- At the June meeting of the club, the ANA slide series on Coins and Special Significance will be shown and no doubt there will be an auction as well. Final details will also be planned for the club show on 26 June. The main door prize will be a $10 gold piece and other items, in' eluding a 10 kr. Norway commemorative crown and a special folder put out by the Canadian government using some of their recent attractive stamp issues will also be given. There will be no addmission charge. Numbers will be sold for the various drawings throughout the show. 'l think you will find the auction will compare favorably with any in the area. Several important coins in fine and better grades will be offered and there will be considerable variety as well. The coins will be checked and graded by a board prior to the auction and an auction list will be available well in advance of the show date, I can report in more detail on this later, but I do know that the sale will have such coins as the 1921 Peace dollar, the 1938 D Walking Liberty, the 1925 Canadian nickel, a 1914 D Lincoln and many others. Not all of the material will be high powered, of course. Most of the items are owned by members of the club. Care will be taken to see that all material is as described. I have noted some carelessness in this respect in some recent show auctions, * o * I have received notice of a pending Antique and Collectors Show and Sal eat Spencer National Guard Armory June 17-19. This is a non-exhibit affair with all material displayed to be for sale. The manager is Mrs. Joe Chase, Route 2, Stewartville, Minn, with the Spencer Chamber of Commerce as sponsor.. 1 noted a clause in the contract warning antique dealers against bringing new things to the show. This seems fair enough. An antique show should show antiques. The armory is located one block off highway 71 north of town at 24th street, the same location as previous shows. I will be out of town for this one but .hope to do some antique visiting while oh the road. Let 26 Miles Of Grading For $129,900 The county board of supervisors held a letting on about 26 miles of, road grading in the county Thursday. Four bids were received. Low bidder for work in the south part of the county was Faber Construction Co. of Algona. The bid was $92,100. J. H. Vander Ree, Fairmont,, was awarded the contract for the north part of the project. His bid was $37,800. . The work is to be'completed this summer. RETIREE Miss Verna Parks, first grade teacher in the Osage community school, was honored at a tea in Osage upon her retirement after 43 years of . teaching in Iowa schools.
