A CAR DRIVEN by a Lytton. Iowa man struck and killed one of two deer that jumped in front of the machine about 10:45 p.m. 2 J /a miles north of Algona Friday evening as he was traveling south on highway 169. Sheriff Ralph Undhorst investigated. The car had about $300 in damage to the front end when it struck one of the two deer that jumped onto the roadway from the west ditch. An accident An Algona college student, Bill Milder, 18, is a patient at Park hospital in Mason City today after he was struck by a car 3 1 /! miles west of Algona on the McGregor blacktop Thanksgiving evening about 7 p.m. He sustained severe lacerations of the lower hips and upper thighs on one side of his body and bruises and cuts on the other side. Otherwise, he was not marked at all. He will be a pati ent at Mason City for at least two weeks and possibly longer. Milder was standing beside his car, a 1962 Chevrolet owned by the Thermogas Co. of Algona, when he was struck by a car driven by Larry Vigdal, also 18, of Whittemore. Since there is no shoulder on the road, Milder had to park his car mostly on the highway when he stopped. Vigdal told Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst, who investigated, he saw the car but did not see Milder until the laft seconds. He applied his brakes but the car slid into Milder. Neither of tha youths know just where Milder was knocked. Vigdal stopped his car and took Milder to St. Ann hospital but he was transferred shortly after.

The McCleish machine had about $125 in damage. bout $50. The latter was traveling the same direction as Milder was traveling about 50 miles per hour. Milder was alone at the time of the accident. No charges were filed by Load- horst.

Funeral services were held for him a week ago Satur day. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Chris Siems and was born two miles east of Whittemore He attended St. Paul's Luth eran school here and graduated from Concordia Teachers ii 1923. He taught school at Evan ville since that time but had beei ill for the past several years. His wife, three daughters an a son survive as well as brothe Erwin of Whittemore and three sisters: Mrs. Dora Haack, Fenton Lydia Wichteadahl, Whittemore and Mrs. Noah Reisner, Lotts Creek. The Whittemore brother an.< sister were among those atteiw [ing the last rites. . A postcard survoy of Legion „ members/.of.~which there are * 269 paid Up at this time, resulted in 76 favoring the proposal and 21 opposing it. This count was made last Tuesday and since then a number of other cards have been returned, most of which favor the purchase of the building. The local Legion post was organized shortly after World War 1 and has been located at the corner of Dodge and Nebraska streets in an old two-story frame building since 1921. The present building is now 100 years old and was originally part of the old Algona Normal college and later was taken over by the G. A. R. The G. A. R. then gave the building to the American Legion post here when it was ^formed after the first World War. It is thought that the present building and grounds are worth about $10,000 and the local Legion post has at least one prospective buyer at this time. IT IS THOUGHT that about $25,000 would be needed, in addition to the purchase price, to remodel the post office building into a suitable building for the Legion purposes. There would be at least four large rooms downstairs for smaller meetings, etc. and an area of about 37 x 50' upstairs would be emodeled into a community all. It is thought the hall could e used for large civic meetings, een-age dances and other com- nunity projects. The Legion would also use a room upstairs for its lounge and the loading dock area on the west side could be converted into a kitchen for serving food. Farrell said the lounge would continue to operate as a private membership club, just as it is at present. Other possible uses for the community hall would be for wedding receptions, large parties and service club meetings. The Legion was in financial difficulties several years ago but in the past few years, has been operating at a profit and has a sizable bank account. Proponents of the project feel that not only would the move offer Algona a fine community hall for a variety of events but would also give the Legion more suitable accommodation? for jt§ operations. Present Commander Saiter and "Bud" , both longtime workers ja Leg^n, activities here, ha.ve also worked closely with Farrell ajj4 seyerajt others in organizing ; 'f
