North St., Algona, was recently named a Peace Corps Volunteer after completing thirteen weeks of training at the Peace Corps Training Center in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. Miss Bradley is one of 40 new volunteers who will work closely with both rural and urban development agencies in Panama. Rural development volunteers offer technical advice in agriculture, home economics, cooperatives and marketing. Ten volunteers will work closely with Panama's Department of Social Welfare toward community action projects such as home improvement. During training, emphasis was placed on learning Spanish. The volunteers also studied community development and technical skills as well as the history and culture of Panama. Their early February arrival in Panama brings the number of Peace Corps Volunteers there to approximately 195. Miss Bradley, a graduate of Garrigan High School in Algona, and College of St. Catherine, St. Paul, with a B.A. in sociology, was selected for inclusion in "Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities." She held class office, and was honored with St. Thomas More Leadership Award at the college. F.C.C. Gives O.K. To Translator Here - U.H.F. 73 The Algona translator committee, consisting of a group of persons in th^s area interested in better reception for this area, announced Saturday that final approval has been obtained from the Federal Communications Commission for KGLO-TV, Mason City, to finish construction and testing and begin operating an Algona area translator on U.H.F. channel 73. It was announced several weeks ago that KGLO-TV had re-filed for a new UHF channel for this area. The move was necessary after channel 71 (which was originally filed for) met with opposition from channel 70. The 450-foot translator tower a mile east of Algona has been ready for final installation of the antenna and other necessary equipment for some time.
