The Algona school is fortunate in having the Willard E. and Ella P. Thompson Education fund. The fund has grown to an approximate value of over $200,000 with an eventual total amounting to $500,000. This spring the grants available have grown to $8,325 to be allotted to four classes. So many deserving students make application the number has to be reduced so that the size of the scholarships are of value intended by the Thompsons. The basis of the grant as stipulated by the Thompsons is: "The beneficiary shall be a graduate who would be obliged to borrow money or work his or her way in order to secure a college or university education. In choosing beneficiaries, the committee shall consider qualifications of character, scholarship, and general ability." Lawrence M.

(Continued on Page 8) A man who allegedly wrote over 10 bad checks and who disappeared from Wesley April 30 shortly before he was to open a new cafe there was apprehended by Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst Sunday night at the Chrome Cafe where he was to rendevous with a second party. Lindhorst pickad up Charlas O'Hara, alias Charles Powers and George L. Spurgeon (his real name) "on a tip" he said. O'Hara was wanted for a number of worthless checks he passed, in denominations from $20 to $35, shortly before disappearing from Wesley. Earlier last week, personal property, including household goods and equipment for his cafe and tavern, were attached by Lindhorst after action by Judge Joseph Hand in district co[{i?L->tx)u Ricke, plaintiff, filed the ^petition in district court against O'Hara, alleging the defendant intended to defraud him. O'HARA told Lindhorst he had been working at International Falls, Minn, since leaving Wesley the last day of April. He abandoned his car at Ft. Dodge, where he purchased another and then presumably drove to International Falls, where he has been most of the time since leaving the county. Ho was arraigned before Judge G. W. Stillman over the weekend and bond of $2500 was set but not furnished. Lindhorst said O'Hara is also wanted by the United States Army for desertion from Fort Penning, Ga. in 1960. He is or- ginally from Lake City, Iowa, fie aame to Wesley last August from Fort Dodge where the Employment office there had given him.a tip on a job. HE HAD WORKED for Al Loebig in his tavern, pool hall and cafe at Wesley until beginning to set up his cafe and tav ern earlier this year. That is when he borrowed $1,000 from the First State bank of Britt with Mr, Ricke as co-signer of the note. Mother sees smoke, son's house on fire!

The 1963 total was $144,315.84 while the collections for the 1964 final quarter totaled $147,788.54. Four towns showed increases — Algona, Bancroft, Swea City, and 'litonka, and returns from the rural area were also up. Decreases were shown by Burt, LuVerne, Wesley, and Whittemore, also places under 500 population and non permit payments. Biggest loss was in returns from places under 500 wliich dropped from $14,032 to $12,403. Algona showed the biggest gain—from $79,278 to $83,205. An estimate of the total amount of business done can be had by multiplying the. sales tax return jy 50. Thus Algona's business increased from $3,969,900 to $4,160,250 in the year for that quarter. Other towns can be figured similarly.
