The board approved a plan for a five-county area with its administrative center in Estherville, with maximum use of existing junior college facilities there and at Emmetsburg. Counties involved are Dickinson, Clay, Emmett, Palo Alto and Kossuth. The five won approval of a plan modified somewhat at the board's suggestion from a proposal submitted earlier.
