Farmers Union Dies Monday Adopts 'Stop Buying' Plan The Kossuth unit of the Farmers Union, meeting at the Cunningham Cafe at Burt, last Wednesday, Jan. 18, agreed to endorse the National Farmers Union "Stop Buying" campaign, which originated recently in North Dakota and has since spread to 13 midwest states. Said Alfred Schonck, president of the Kossuth unit, "Implement and car manufacturers have raised their prices, and interest rates are up. With these additional price shackles, farmers are asked to produce more and more. Agricultural production won World War n and kept the peace. Again the farmer wishes to do his part but under fair income conditions." Schenck said the county unit was recommending that every farmer participate to the best of his ability in this "Stop Buying" campaign. He added that there are no intentions of pickets or any special activity of a similar nature in the county, and that the. protest is not aimed at the area dealers in machinery or cars, but rather is hoped for as a message to the manufacturers who set the prices to begin with.

Sentral Youths On Challenge, Trek West Two 16-year-old juniors from Sentral high, missing since last Tuesday, decided they had seen enough of the world for the time being at least, and ended their travels at Denver, Colo. The young mnn, James R. Voigt and Terry Brekke, had been Uie subject of a search throughout the middle west for several days. Jim is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Voigt of Fenton, and Terry is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd B;:ekke of rural SweaCity. Both of the boys were in good health but had suffered several setbacks in their journey, a major one being that the transmission in the vintage car owned by Jim expired at Donver. There was also a matter of dwindling finances. Travel, it seems, even in a nutdest manner, requires funds. Last fall there was some talk involving going places and seeing things around Sentral, and Jim and Terry voiced a desire to see something of the world, a viewpoint their classmates did not let them forget. The thoughts of travel grew during the ensuing weeks, and finally came to the point of putting into action the discussion and proddlngs on the subject. After the disappearance of the two young men, their parents with understanding concern, contacted Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst, who spread basic information in the matter to other midwestern sources. Last Saturday, a phone call came in to Luke Linnan, Algona attorney, a friend of the Voigt family, placed by Jim from a Denver, Colo, pay station. Jim indicated that the boys we re considering the situation and found the financial outlook rather bleak at the moment, as well as a transmission that had given up the ghost. Ensuing events led to the whereabouts of the boys, and Gerald Voigt left Sunday for Denver to bring them home. The boys were found when they went to a Denver employment office. Home usually looks better after you've had a chance to inspect other areas.
