The new building was put in use beginning Sunday. Sullivan took over as postmaster here on Feb. 22, 1935 and has now completed 30 years in that capacity. At that time, the post office was in the ^Security State Bank building but in August, 1937, it moved into the new building built during the latter stages of the depression. Thus Sullivan served ail 28 years as postmaster while the building was in use. The new post office building, owned by Wilfred Riopelle of Milwaukee, Wis., is leased to the post office department for $15,600 per year for 20 years and the government has six five-year options after that. It contains 10,000 square feet of space although the lobby is no larger than the old post office and there are only 50 more postal boxes. The working room is 46x80 feet and the building has private offices for postmaster Sullivan, assistant Hal Long and the postal inspector. It is heated by gas and air. conditioned and contains a 9x12 ft. vault, with its own ceiling and double steel doors. ••. • • . • Peace arrives in Twelve U.S. Peace 'Corps workers including Wayne "Reb" Johnson of Algona, arrived at Bangkok, Thailand this week after being ordered out of Indonesia two weeks ago. , ..Johnson, a former Algona high school quarterback in the late 1950's, was a physical education adviser in Indonesia.

He had gone there to clean it and when found was in water head down to his waist with the scraper still gripped in his hand. It is believed he had a heart attack and fell into the tile.

He was married to Rosalie Bormann Jan. 3, 1928, at St. Cecelia A 20-year old Algona youth, Larry Reefer, was sentenced to 30 days in jail for driving white his license was under suspension and faces fines on three other driving counts as a result of a 100 mile-per-hour chase last Saturday night. His troubles began about 2:30 Sunday morning. Reefer was driving west on Nebraska street when Patrolman Tom Cogdall came up behind him. Cogdall didn't recognize the car as he had had a yellow car previous to a former license suspension and the car ahead of him was a 1958 Chevrolet. Evidently, thinking the patrolman was going to stop him (which he wasn't), he speeded up and Cogdall gave chase, thinking he was behind a stolen car. Reefer turned on Ridgiey street to State and then took off at speeds up to 100 miles an hour. ACCORDING to officers, the chase continued on to highway 18, around the triangle north of town and then onto highway 169 and Jones street. Reefer then took a turn onto Lucas street, made a left turn on Dodge to Overmeyer drive, then came up Jones and across State street. William Rasmussen, policeman on night duty, had seen Reefer driving his car and knew he would have a chase if_he pursued him. Sb^.hoping to^caten him off guard, he was waiting near the young man's house for his return. Via radio he knew of the chase and joined in at Call and Jones intersection. He was right behind him when Reefer lost control of his car on Jones street and plowed into the approach to the John Dreesman driveway. Damage to the car Was estimated at $500. Four charges were filed against him in Mayor's court here. They were driving while license was suspended, reckless driving, speeding, and failure to stop at nine stop signs. He pleaded guilty to all four counts but was jailed immediately after the action by Sondra Kay Johnson, , of the set of golf dubs i960 and she asks custody of a child.
