The "new ones arc a railroad signal at the Rock Island crossing a half mile east of Lakota and a grading and paving project i nAlgona on 'highway 169 The exact location of this project is somewhat in doubt, but present indications are on Jones street. Under contract now is a re surfacing > of highway 44 from Whittemore junction with 18 to the fringe of Ringsted.

'Building projects /include salt storage shed at Whittemor und widening of stalls in th Algona maintenance garage. From a state standpoint th only critical road situation in the county is the stretch on 169 from about four miles south of Algona going south. The four miles south from Algona were widened in a project a few years ago, but the highway 169 from this point south into Humboldt badly needs widening. It had been 'hoped this stretch would be included in, the new work planned for the future, but it was not included in the plan as announced this week by the commission: i Two new teachers formerly of Seneca, dies of Swea held in this area with four tractors and a great: deal of machinery to be sold, plus hogs, cattle and buildings.
