Advance pay available on feed grains Advance payments are able again this year to growers signing up to participate in the feed grain program, it was an< nounced this week by ft. t. Alt' derson, chairman of the Kossuth ASC county committee. Similar payments were available under the 1964 program. The advance payment will represent one-half of the estimated total diversion payment to be earned under the 1965 program. The remainder of the diversion payment and all of the price-support payment earn' ed under the program will be made next fall. The 1965 feed grain program covers corn, barley, and grain sorghum. Participants in the program may qualify for a payment for diversion of eligible cropland to approved conserving uses, and also for a price-support payment on the normal production of the 1965 feed grain acreage. They will also be eligible for price-support loans on their entire production from the feed grain acreage. . Each farm has a total feed grain base, representing the combined base acreage of the three feed grains grown on the farm. A producer may divert one or more of the feed grains, and his diversion payment'will be based on the per-acre rate which applies to the grain diverted. Minimum diversion under the program is 20 percent of the total feed grain base; maximum diversion is 50 percent of the base or 25 acres if this is greater. While participation in the 1965 feed grain program is voluntary, the price-support payments and the loans, as well as the diversion payments, will be availble only to growers who sign up and carry out the program's provision. The sign-up period for the program will continue through March 26. '*".'' two new cases art filed in court Two newnesses" were filed in district court.

Judge Cooper gives verdict in local case Judge Cooper last week sustained a motion to set aside a verdict of $22,500 in favor of Dorothy Cook as administrator of the estate of Anna Nelson against Elva Hall and Elva's beauty shop. . . . Last summer the case was started with filing of the petition for damages alleged to have been sustained by Mrs. Nelson, mother of Dorothy Cook, when she fell, in the beauty shop. Mrs. Hall notified the local agent of the company which had insurance against accidents, Murray Mowers, who notified Robert L. Zeal, manager of the North Central Adjusting Co., Ft. Dodge, who handles claims against insurance companies. Zeal testified he made attempts to settle the claim but had no success and notified Crum & Forster Insurance Group at Freeport, 111. Harold W. Kaiser acted for the Group, and when notice of suit was sent to Zeal he forwarded it to Kaiser. Somehow there was a breakdown of communications and Zeal and Kaiser each thought the other had notified the Bastian, Beisser & Carlson attorney firm in Fort Dodge to defend against the, suit. However the attorneys were not notified. Then-time elapsed in November for .filing an appearance and on petition of • the plaintiffs Judge Cooper entered a default judgment for the entire amount asked for, $22,500, against Mrs. Hall. . : ..,-: ... , | - In ruling to sustain the motion to -set the verdict aside Judge Cooper said the actions along the line had been "careless" and "poor judgment" had prevailed. However he found that it was'not "gross neglect or willful procrastination" sufficient to let the judgment stand. The state supreme court recently ruled that in cases where a default judgment had been taken that either of the parties to a suit should not be made to suffer because of a fault of another person. Judge Cooper found there was every intention to defend against the case but that the breakdown in communication was immaterial where such intent was so evident. The case now stands as it was originally entered to be tried at some future term of court as if the default judgment had not been taken. — ONE DAY ONLY — Monday, Feb. 22 LET THESE PROGRESSIVE ALGONA FIRMS HELP YOU SAVE MONDAY! 9 Cpast-Tp-Cpast • Foster Furniture • Sheakleys 9 Harrison's 9 lender's 9 Grahams § HuUell's 9 Bjustrpm Furniture 9 Bomgaar's Ben Franklin 9 Tpm's Radio & TV 9 Shilts Shoe Store 9 Dean's Watches 9 No. Iowa Appliance Center 9 No. la.
