From Aliont High ind Birrigi" BY RUSS WALLER Paul Banwart, 76-year old West Bend man, recently had an unusual experience. He happened to be in Iowa City and looked up his old school teacher, the former Margaret Dorweiler, now a widow, a sister of Dr. Dorweiler of Algona. His former teacher is 92 years old, in good health, and active. She taught a rural school in Garfield township years' ago, in the same area where Mr. Banwart still lives. Dr. Dorweiler and Mr. Banwart were pupils together. Congressman Stanley Greigg was a guest speaker at the Kiwanis meeting here last Thursday. At the conclusion he ventured to ask if there were any questions, and it opened up a frontal attack from members of the opposite political party which was only terminated when the program chairman ended the meeting with great suddenness. * * * What with cars backed up for 15 miles in all directions around Belmond last Sunday, we trust that the curious donated freely as they drove through the ruins, on their sightseeing trip. * * * Paul Bernhard, Fenton farmer, recently returned from a trip to Europe sponsored by the Extension Service and Iowa Swine Producers Ass'n, one of a group of 34. They flew from New York to Amsterdam, and visited Germany, Denmark, Sweden, France and London, visiting hog raising facilities. But one of the most unusual aspects of the trip was when they took a coffee break along the way they found the cup of coffee costing them from 45? to $1 (with a roll). And we have inflation ? * * * Roy Mathison, ex-Algernon and an eagle-eyed scanner of west coast dailies for Iowa news, sent us a front page from the Oct. 14 Los Angeles Herald-Examiner .... the headline in three inch type had three words—"Tornado Rips Town," the story of Belmond. * * * The Main Street Philosopher says that he knows something that will do the work of 100 men. It's 50 women I * * * CAN YOU REMEMBER WHEN? The grocery had the banana stalk We had mud roads The button hook was a necessity .The razor strap served two purposes Kids wore knee pants The Willys Overland was the car The steam engine was king You had kerosene lamps Soft water came from a cistern Buck Rogers first talked of space The Gypsies came to tow.n Hitler came to power Japs bombed Pearl Harbor Sugar stamps were precious Space was just higher than the windmill * * * Household Hint - If you're washing windows, the best thing to wipe them with is a newspaper, and they tell us the UDM (after you've read it, of course) is the best. * * * Well, this is reciprocity week in local newspaper circles. Pat Chrischilles, wife of Advance Managing Editor Julie, took second place in the Upper Des Moines Grid Guessers Contest and won $5, And in the Advance contest, Doris Purcell, wife of the UDM foreman Jack Purcell, took third place and won $3. Maybe something along these lines could be worked out between North and South Viet Nam ? * * * Memo from the Toastmaster's Bulletin here; "It's lucky we're not a warlike nation; only 60% .of our money goes for that purpose." * * * Famous Last Line - Hello, dear, here's a goose I shot; you better pick it! 57 Donate A Friday Jo Belmond Cleanup r ~ •rt^&/itf&2^ • ''••""'••• STUDENTS FROM GARRIGAN HIGH who assisted in the Belmond work detail are (left to right) Norman Bormann, Dick Berte, Tim Molacek (partially hidden), Howard Kayser, John Hig, Gary Weber, John Eusenbacher, Dave Schneider, Don Weber, Greg Kinsman, Dwight Gilbride, Jay Johnson, Joe Becker (partially hidden), Jerry Hobscheidt, Bob Bestenlehner, Dave Smith, Jim Ernst, Dave Fandel, Steve Detrick, Bill Mueller, bus driver, and DuWayne Frideres.

Clear Pictures - Moro News - Largest Circulation ESTABLISHED 1865 Mercury Rise Here Pleasing To Everyone It was a dry week again in Kossuth ' county this week - weatherwise - with a return of warmer temperature readings that pleased everyone. High during the period was 66 degrees. It hit that mark twice and the mercury was expected to top that Wednesday'afternoon- so it looks like the 30-day forecast, which was announced a week or so ago, calling for warmer than normal temperatures, might be correct. Meanwhile, the low during the week was 25 degrees early Tuesday. Here are the readings: Oct. 20 Oct. 21 Oct. 22 Oct. 23 Oct. 24 Oct. 25 Oct. 26 H L 66 30 64 43 62 38 58 56 66 30 29 25 36 Might Bury Phone Cables At Lone Rock The cost of underground telephone cables was outlined for Lone Rock Co-Op Telephone Co. subscribers Tuesday night. Curtis Olson, telephone company manager, also discussed rates that would be required if the company installed such equipment. Laying of underground cable has been under discussion here since last March's ice and snow storm knocked out telephone and electrical service for about four days. After Tuesday night's meeting, a letter outlining the rate situation will be sent to the telephone company's 285 subscribers. Subscribers will then vote by mall on whether the company should install the underground service. Out Of Hospital Bill Brauman, end on the Eagle Grove football team who sustained a back injury in the Algona- Eagle Grove contest here Friday, was released from St. Ann hospital Monday following observation and treatment. He suffered the injury when he fell backward after catching a pass out of bounds late in the 7 - 7 game. JayCeei Met The Algona JayCees donated $5 to the Bill Kern Memorial Fund here during a recent meeting. One new member, Bill Welsh, was al§o signed up. The JayCee of the Month Award went to John Murphy and Mike Ball and it was decided to discontinue the curb painting project for the year and continue the project next year. jWotnes; M S * ec , on ,"L C o laM 7 atte / at the Portottlce at Algona.

Kossuth Gets $10,000 In Surplus Interest Yearly State Auditor Loren Worthington, who was quoted Sunday as censoring a number of county treasurers in Iowa for not investing county funds in interest-drawing accounts, has no quarrel with Kossuth County. Kossuth has netted $11,900 interest from its surplus funr's deposited in savings accounts £>;;;ce July 1, 1965, thanks to .;.-, business management of County Treasurer Rosella Voigt. The semi-annual treasurer's staiement as published for the first six months of 1966, showed an interest-drawing deposit by the treasurer's office of $250,000 in time certificates for Kossuth county in area banks. The criticism of the State Auditor w.; aimed at county treasurers who have not deposited whatever .viir-'us was not needed for immediate county expenses in interest- - iv: accounts. Kossuth county is earning approximately $l(,i. •' a year from interest on its funds at the present lime. The Kossuth County Board of Education, following meetings at Bancroft Monday night and Algona Tuesday night, officially approved the proposed 5-county Community College and Vocational Technical School setup for this area. A total of 85 persons attended the Monday meeting and 75 were at the meeting here Tuesday. Board action on the proposal, which has been in the mill for some time, came after the Tuesday session. Approval by the State Board of Education is expected, possibly this week as that group is meeting at Des Moines two days and will probably take action on the Kossuth, Clay, Dickinson, Emmet and Palo Alto county proposal. Next up for the new district will be an election of a 7-member Board of Education, then an administrator and business manager will be hired to really get the plan rolling. Placement of the vocational- technical facilities will be determined by the board, but the Community College portion will have Estherville as its administrative center and existing facilities there and also at Emmetsburg will probably be used. Technical training will be on a two year basis - and Community Colleges at tl,e present time are two years, also. There will be seven elector districts in the 5-county area. The Algona, LuVerne and Burt school districts will elect a director, the remainder of the districts in the county, plus Ringsted, will also elect one and the other five will be elected from the other four counties in the set-up. The Community College and Vocational School plan will be financed by local taxes, tuition and state and federal money. - o Meanwhile, the Algona Community School District board of education met Monday night and was '.)ld by representatives of the bonding attorneys who had been contacted that the tentative date for a possible bond isL-«j electro here would have to be move-- oack. It was hoped the election might be held before the rt of the year, in December, hut it now appears that after necessary petitions are filed, etc., the election can't possibly be held before February, 1967. Certain technicalities vith the bonding attorneys make an electio^ -Ing 1966 impossible. John Claude, recently elected member of the board, was sworn in and two representatives of the local Education Association were present to talk to the board about some type of group insurance for teachers here during the next school year. The board expressed interest in such a plan and asked the organization to look into types oi insurance in which they are interested and make a later report to the board. Nov. 14 was set as the next meeting date for the board. Former Algonan Heart Victim In California Tom Stull, 81, well-known former Algonan, died Oct. 11 at Glendale, Calif.
