Continue talks on clubs using same building Negotiations are continuing between three Algona clubs for the possible common use of the VFW hall. Other organizations showing interest are the Moose Lodge and the American Legion club. The Legion approved further investigation of the possibility at its regular meeting last Wednesday.

The Moose and VFW have regularly scheduled meetings this week and if they approve further negotiations, representatives of the clubs will again get together for discussions. Should the Legion and Moose clubs decide to move, each j would close their clubroom fa- 'cilities.
