Former Algona —"dancers might save TV" Some of Iowa's severest critics of television think that dancing is the least irriating entertainment thrown on TV screens. Why doesn't TV offer more dancing?

A Derner moved recently to her new home at 614 Bell Court in Algona. One of the best leads in the case came from a Ledyard resident,^ Dennis Weringe, an employe of .the'Farmers Co-op-, erative Elevator. He reported to authorities he was awakened about 2:30 a.m. by the barking of his white dog "Andy."^ He went to the front porch of his home, located about 150 yards north of the elevator and saw four men standing near the elevator's grain dryer. "I hollered at them . ... asked them if they needed any help," he told authorities. When he shouted, a fifth man came running across the street to join the other four and all five ran out of sight behind the elevator. LINDHORST indicated in con versations later that it was probable the five were the burglars who entered the bank. Weringa said he tried to let the dog out but he wouldn't go so he went back to bed. He said he was able to^see the men because they were standing near a bright street light.' Lindhorst also reported a car was seen driving in the town abo^it 4 a.m., an extremely unlikely oc- curance in a small town at that hour. It could be surmised that the burglars waited near the elevator for a few minutes, and after they were convinced that Wer- nga had retired again, went a- \ >out their work.' ; They had stolen a cutting orch from the State Highway* ' Maintenance shop at Gerled, which is only four miles" from 1 uedyard. The stealing of tools 'or a burglary is not uncommon, according to Lindhorst. "In the old days,,we had burg- ' lars stealing sledge hammers and other tools from railroad storage , places," he reported. He also recalled burglars taking tools from the Gerled shop three or four years ago for burglaries at Swea City and at Schultz Bros, in Algona. / LEON McCOYi the* barik^s insurance and real'' estate repie- sentative, discovered ' the s front door of the bank had 'beeh jimmied when he put-his key in the lock about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday. • He found the bank 'vault had been ransacked when he'entered and records and documents were strewn around the floor and desks. "The floor, was covered by bonds," he said later. A partition'inside the vault divides, it into two 'sections. The burglars'cut their way into the section protecting the safety de ( posit boxes and then crawled ov- r the partition into the section' where the bank's safe is located. , They - apparently handed the sacks of silver over"th'e^pa'rtitioh. fhey .did not take^ouyjfpeniu'es, Undhorst said.-And it Is believed they did hot take milch from the safety deposit boxes altho-' ugh a check with customers is still going on. BUT SEVERAL watches and other valuables were untouched in boxes that were opened. The,, bank's safe is several inches thick and protected by a time lock and the burglars did not attempt to open it. Bank cashier Marvel Halvbrson was called by McCoy, as well as the sheriff. The bank was sealed off all day Wednesday by Lindhorst and the helping agents as they dusted for fingerprints and attempted to count the loss. The bank was open for business again Thursday. Lindhorst said there have been several daylight bank robberies in Kossuth county, two at Lakota and one at Burt, since he took office, but the only previous night burglary was at Fenton a number of years ago. Clair Clark, prominent auctioneer of Ceylon, Minn; and Ledyard, is the bank president. Authorities believe the burglary was the work of professionals. Interior of bank Mrs. Only other business transacted, was a discussion on whether to, get a ruling from the Attorn ey General of Iowa on whether it is legal to put in a Cable TV system without a vote of the " in Algona.

Many of the boxe§ were opened but it is believed the '.oss from boxes is minor.
