RCA VICTOR PHONOGRAPHS AND STEREOS Priced At Low As Since December 1958 and again this year the Men's Club of the First Methodist Church in Algona ha<5 been sponsoring, supplying attendants and keeping in repair, the nationally famous Kaib Natvity Scene. The scene may again be visited in its new building on the west edge of the Kossuth County Fair grounds, Fair Street, Algona on the south edge of the city. The opening date is Sunday, December 18, and will close Monday, January 1. The hours for weekdays are from 2:00 p.m. to 9 p.m. except Christmas and New Years Day. The hours for Sundays, Christmas, and New Years Day are from 12: 00 noon until 9:00 p.m. By arrangement with Kaib and his friends no charge is made for admission. In 1945 the construction of a Nativity Scene seemed to be the right answer for six Germans interned in Algona's Prlsoner-of- War camp to help forget their loneliness at Christmas. Mr. Edward Kaib, architect from Bielefeld, Germany at that time a non commissioned officer in the German army and five of his fellow prisoners bought the necessary materials with their own money, worked long months and weary hours to create the sacred designs. The complete scene is built to one half size scale, made of concrete on a wire frame and finished with hand carving plaster with color effects.
