Funeral services were held Monday at St. Mary's church at Armstrong. He had been hospitalized for a month. He was born at Remsen on Oct. 19, 1881 and moved to Bancroft with his family when a small boy. He was married to Lydia Hubbard at Armstrong in May, 1953 and was employed by the Central States Power Co. for 25 years before retiring. His wife and a step-daughter survive. He was a brother of the late Leo Delperdang and Mrs. Elizabeth Korrect of Bancroft and was the last of his family. FORGER SENTENCED William H. Morgan, who admitted three forgeries at Swea City among other forgeries in the north part of the state, was sentenced to 24 months in the South Dakota State peniteniary Monday on forgery charges at Wafertown, S. D. er, public relations manager for he Maytag Company, of New- on, who kept the crowd roaring much of the time with his humorous talk. Interspersed with his humor was sober talk of the future in bis rapidly changing world. The people alive today he said outnumbered all those who have died since Adam and Eve, and if the population explosion continues the world will be suffocated with people by 2026. The change in Iowa is tremendous with the rapid shift from farm to city. In the United States one farmer leaves the farm every seven minutes on the average. We must have more industry to take care not only of those leaving the farm but the children now in school and in prospect for the future. Industry has problems. Since 1900 there have been 1700 makes of cars manufactured by 1500 companies. Only five of the 1500 companies remain, Items manufactured only ten years ago have been replaced by new items and industry must be prepared for rapid change. It is not iasy to stay in business, and ;hose who work must know that when a business fails their jobs go also with a reducing chance of getting a new job in the face Sweeping changes in Kossuth county schools would result under a proposal by the State Department of Public Instruction to the Iowa legislature Monday, requiring all school districts in the state to have 1,500 pupils at a minimum. If the measure wa» patted into law, it would mtan Kossuth county would have tithtr two or possibly three high schools. Kossuth County Supt. A. M. Quintard, long an advocate'of chool reorganization and a primary backer of county reorgan- zations in 1954, said Wednesday hat he hadn't thought the new iroposal through complete as et. "This proposal, though, is a ittle more ambitious than any previous ones by the State De- )artment and has many ramifications," Quintard said. PRESENTLY, the total county school enrollment is 4,579. Of ;his total, Algona Community School District has 1,666 students. Thus it would be impossible to have more than one other high school in the county under the proposal since there would be less than 3,000 student^ remaining. .'-• "•£: ..« In~adclition, since Burt a'nd-Lu- Verne would surely be included in the Algona district under the proposal, the number remaining would be far less than 3,000. However, it would be possible that because of its size, Kossuth might be an exception to the law. Present school enrollments in the county art as follows: Algona, 1666; Burt, 302; Lakota, 328; LuVerne, 303; Sentral, 556; Ledyard, 252; Swea City, 506; and Titonka, 524. lotto Crock Whit tenor* X 3C Mhltfcor* X X' CarMold , > Uhlan Greece o., >o9 Hum Shaman, Buffalo^ > ' x ' ** ** y 1 ,, ¥y?4f. t f To let four county road jobs Feb. 1 Four asphaltic concrete paving jobs on Kossuth farm-to- market roads are scheduled to be let Feb. 2 at the state highway commission office in Ames.

The new construe--' tion is marked with (x) and the re-top is marked with (o). Most school reorganization in the county in the mid '50s was done under a 300-enrollment figure (this is not high school but total enrollment). At that time, Ledyard had more than 300 pupils but now is down to 252. QUINTARD said that a number of possibilities have been examined by the county board and various school boards throughout the county during the past few years. They include the following: (1) The posibility of hiving one school district only, including the entire county. The number of high schools then would depend on the decision of the elected board. (2)|H«ving only on* high school, Algona, in the county. All students from an east-west line drawn between Burt and Bancroft south would attend Al- gona. This would include the present Sentral district as well as Burt in the Algona district. The remainder of the north half of the county would be split down the middle with half going to Armstrong and the other half to Buffalo Center. He said the boards were lukewarm to this proposal. (3) Having two high schools in the county — one at Algona and the other at a point north of Bancroft. Because of the high Catholic enrollment in the Bancroft area, there were some objections to this idea since there would be a great transportation problem in hauling students to such a school with only a handful of students from the Ban> croft area. SOURCES within the State Board of Public Instruction have estimated that reorganization of the magnitude suggested would save Iowa taxpayers about $15 million a year. In addition, besides saving money, they believe there would be a better educational program for the money spent. Under the new proposal by the State, any district falling short of the 1,500 figure would be attached to another district by the county board of education by July 1, 1969. The department urged, that the di?trjcts be. required to have at least 1,500 pu- >ils of school age enrolled as f Sept. 15, 1968. . Injured when ears crash at corner Ethel M. Colwell was hospitalized after an automobile accident Tuesday at 3:15 p.m. with bruises and a dislocated shoulder. Mrs Colwell was driv- ng north on Ackley street and collided with a car driven by Ronald R. Muller, 18, who was traveling east on State street. Mrs Colwell fell out of her car and was beneath the reat of the car when it came to a stop. There was about $850 damage to the Colwell vehicle and $250 to the Muller auto.
