Dental Soci ety is participating in the nation al children's dental health week dated Feb. 7 to 13. The Kossuth group is sponsoring a free mov ie for children at the Algona theatre Saturday, Feb. 13. Tick ets can be secured from the chil dren's dentist. The movie wil have 6 colored cartoons and a special Flipper movie. In connection with children's dental health, authorities agree a child should make his first visi to the dentist at about 2V 2 o: 3. He then has all of his "baby 1 teeth, and the dentist can check for signs of decay of malformation which might lead to orthodontic problems. The fact the child does not seem to have any cavities does not mean that some decay may not be present. The American Dental Association has found dental patients under 4 years of age have an average of three teeth needing fillings. When a child is exposed to routine treatment at an early age, he rarely develops the fear which many adults have so long associated with dental treatment. The importance of good care for the primary or "baby" teeth cannot be over-emphasized. A child needs his primary teeth, as he does his permanent ones, for chewing, for speaking and for appearance. Also, these first teeth hold the space for the permanent teeth to come. There are simple rules which, if followed faithfully, can help to reduce decay. These are: 1. Cut down on sweets, especially between meals. 2. Brush your teeth immediately after eating (snacks as well as regular meals). When this is not possible, rinse your mouth thoroughly with wa- and the Mayor gill F&»; BiU Steele, W hic}j to, necessary forms Pfl-ers. on There are 19 Senior Girl Scouts working on their Hospital Aid Bar, which has as part of the requirements 50 hours of hospital service.

Kossuth farms and towns qre hit by power failure ter. 3. Have regular dental checkups. Early treatment of dental disease is easier and more likely to he effective. IR0WIR IITTfR Rev. Myron Brower, former Presbyterian minister, had major surgery at University hospital in Iowa City last Tuesday. He was on the critical list for two days but is now responding to treatment. He will be a patient for sometime. His room number ]§ 333-W. Every person served electricity by the Humboldt REA and the D-E-K REA, the Iowa Public Service, Iowa Power and Light and other electrical supply companies had a failure Friday that lasted from five minutes to about two hours when full service was restored. Unaffected were towns with municipal plants which had their own electricity. Algona and Bancroft were uninterrupted and few here knew of the problem until radio reported it. The Corn Belt REA Coop, which supplies both the Humboldt and D-E-K transmission lines had some electricity going out again in five minutes after the stoppage, and all service was back to normal inside of two hours. Humboldt serves South Kossuth; D-E-K serves North Kossuth, The cause of the failure was a switching power station relay failure at the Fort Randall dam in South Dakota. The dam power station supplies electricity to the entire Iowa "gild" system as- well as the Dakotas, Minnesota, and Nebraska. It is a federal project. The "grid" consists of many individual transmitters of power and also power • stations which are inter-connected so electricity can be sent from one station's transmission units to another. This enables stations to buy and use power from other stations on the lines which are interconnected. Algona is interconnected with • public service company, but wa$ not called upon to furnish power. It was felt the regular supply to areas around here would be back in service seen, The Algona plant would not be able to supply much more power than to take care of such towns as Wesley, Corwith, Burt, etc., and in order to do so there would have to have been a cutoff of lines entering these areas. TO,Q much demand suddenly on the, generators cause them Winner Susan Dodds, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Dodds, Lone Rock, was named the Kossuth County winner of a $75.00 award. The Estherville Cooperative Creamery annually awards this prize to the area 4-H dairy project winners. Susan received her award at the cooperative annual meeting from Frank Lown, extension director of Emmet county. Her prize winning essay "Why I Would Like to Own a Purebred Dairy Heifer" was a realistic one, as she will use the award money to buy a dairy heifer. to shut off automatically. If such a huge amount of electricity had been required here it would have halted the Algona plant as well as do no good for the others on the interconnected lines. This happened in the larger power stations where failure at Fort Randall put too heavy a load on the local stations and the automatic safety apparatus took over and shut down the plants. It took some time to get them back in operation. In the meantime the Randall system was repaired. Algona is well protected from such a failure. If the Algona plant fails the transmission lines here are interconnected so in a short time power can be obtained from the private high-line which is interconnected here. Electricity was back soon enough to prevent too much damage in this area, though homes became cold, and all electrical equipment shut down. Many realized for the first ttme how dependent they have become on a continuous flow of electricity. The Iowa Public Service Co. issued the following statement: An electric power breakdown at the Federal Bureau of Reclamation Substation at Fort Randall, S. D. Thursday afternoon caused a major power disturbance within the Bureau's system and those of neighboring interconnected power systems, including IPS. The result was widespread power interruptions involving the states of South Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota and other adjacent states. According to B. D. Dyke, district manager of IPS, when the company's generating units began attempting to pick up the load from neighboring systems which were being fed by the Bureau, its generators went down under the strain. As soon as stand-by plants in various communities were put in operation, service was restored, in Livermore and LuVerne area the power outage hit at about 1:30 p.m. with power being restored by 3:35 p.m. Mr. Dyke said that power interruptions to towns in the IPS system varied from a few seconds to as much as two hours, depending on the availability of standby power. By 3:50 on Thursday afternoon, practically all IPS customers were back on the line. Excessively cold weather played in restoration activities according to Mr. Dyke. Furnaces had cooled down to the point where, when service was restor ed, all furnace fans began oper ating at once. Consequently, it was necessary to restore service at staggered intervals. Is result of firey crash near Lakota Elizabeth Joel, administratrix of the estate of Wayne Howard Joel, filed suit in district court last week against the National By-Products Inc. and Everett Johnson asking $75,000 in damages. The case comes from an intersection collision August 1, 1964 on graveled roads a mile and a half east and three miles south of Lakota. A 1964 Falcon Ranchero driven by Joel and a By-Products truck driven by Johnson collided on the intersection. ; The truck rolled over on the Joel wagon, and a saddle gasoline tank was broken, letting gasoline escape. This caught fire and the Lakota fire department was called to put out the fire and cool the wreckage so the, body of Mr. Joel could be removed. It was reported at the time;it was believed Mr. Joel was instantly killed in the accident, and that he did not die in the lames. ' ! ; The Joels have, five children, of which two are minors. He was 50 years old, the petition stated, and had a life expectancy of 21.37 years. ... Mr. Joel was employed by the Blue Earth canning company, and he had been inspecting; a pea field near the site of the crash. •''!•• Johnson, driver of 'the truck, was injured in the crash but was able to get out of the truck before flames engulfed it Judge hears evidence in default case After several hours taking evidence Friday Judge Richard Cooper took under advisement a motion to set aside a default judgment in a case brought by Dorothy Cook against Elva Hall. Judge Cooper will rule later. Witnesses were heard. There was an unusual activity in the court house for Judge Stillman was unusual activity in the room, and the Cook-Hall case was being heard in chambers- later moved to the court room when the ' case before' Judge Stillman ended. A motion filed by the attorneys for the defendant stated failure to appear in the case was caused by "inadvertence, mistake, excusable neglect, and unavoidable casualty." The motion sets forth a breakdown in the chain of notice Between an agent for the claims company, the insurance . company, and the attorneys with assumptions the attorney had been notified when in fact he had not. The case arose after a fall by Anna Nelson at Elva's beauty shop, and suit was commenced by Dorothy Cook as administra- trix of her mother's estate. When no appearance was made by the defendant or an attorney, judgment was entered by default for $22,500 in favor of the estate. Judge Cooper's order required appearance of those involved in the chain of notification in the insurance company, claims agent, and the company for questioning by attorneys for Dorothy Cook. Kiwanis officers are installed Officers for the Algona Kiwanis club were installed Thursday by Wes Bartlett, an International trustee of the organization. Elgin Allen is new president; Ray Langfitt, first vice; Jerry Leaneagh, second vice; Clair Blossom, sec.; and M. G. Norton, treas. Directors are Harold Aillaud, Rev.
