Linda Ruhnkc, Jam en Voigl; most improved award — Doris Anliker, Linda Parsons Kitty Hardgrove, Joy Meyer Helen Skow, Glenn Tschettcr, Donna Kcnyon, Carol Slonikcr, I DOUBT IF Stanford Griffith, a Fort Dodge architect, has anything to do with the Chamber of Commerce down there, what with the remarks he made up at Fairmont the other day . . . both Fairmont and Fort Dodge have been toying with downtown "mall" ideas. Griffith, who is being recommended to the Fairmont city council by the Downtown Development committee to draw preliminary plans and determine costs of a mall, told an audience there the other day that there Is a 72 per cent vacancy on the Fort Dodge main street right now ... remember when we were concerned with just an open front or two on Slate Street? "Fort Dodge locked the barn after the horse was stolen," Griffith said. "The problem; business was moving into the outlying areas and when one goes, the rest follow and it is tremendously hard to stop," Griffith told his Fairmont audience. The biggest problem right now is a huge new shopping center on highway 20 east of Fort Dodge which is luring some of the biggest names in merchandising, many from the downtown Fort Dodge area. For instance, Sears vacated an 8-story, $500,000 building in the downtown district it had leased to move to the shopping center. Here's the clincher: "The 100 per cent (best business block of the downtown Fort Dodge district) next year will have only one store," ;Griffith said. And here's another note, especially to the county assessor's office — the building which Sears was going to ;occupy would have paid 816,000 in taxes — next year it will pay just $1,000! HUMBOLDT ANNOUNCED it has another new industry moving to town . . . this time it is a company, moving out : of Cowrie, Iowa, which will employ 40 persons with 18 fain- j ilics moving to that town very soon . . . the company, Slifcr 'Mfg. Co., produces steam cleaning equipment and other related products . . . Albert "Jake" Vaudt of Twin Lakes is president ... he is a former Ottosen man. Vaudt was born and reared there, and operated a service station at Me- Knight's Point between Ottosen and Bradgate shortly after the war. • UP UNTIL last weekend, only about 10 per cent of the soybeans and 40 per cent of the corn had been planted in southern Minnesota. One farmer in that area, who farms 1400 acres, had not even been in the field as yet this spring because of heavy moisture.
