JayCees Painting House Numbers Algona's JayCees are beginning a street number campaign in all areas of the city next Monday. It will last for several days and a door-to-door effort will be conducted in residential and business areas alike. Cost is $1. Five members of the organization are shown above looking over the "111" painted on the curb in front of the UDM building. They are, left to right, John Lande, Tom Kissner, Walt Turchin, Jim McMahon and Paul Bode. In areas where no curbings are available, the club will put the house numbers on front steps, with black numerals on a white background. It is the first time the plan has been used here, but other cities in the area, including Mason City, Charles City and Clear Lake have done it earlier. (UDM Polaroid Photo) MRS.
