Kleiber entered a plea of guilty to false drawing and uttering of a bank check in district court here this week. He is slated to be sentenced here next Monday, March 25. He was alleged to have passed a $29 check at the Acreage Motel here Dec. 28, 1967. Maximum punishment according to the record, is seven years in the state penitentiary and a fine of not more than $500 or a year in the county jail. Only the U. S. President and the Governor of Massachusetts have the official legal title of "Excellency." The Kossuth County Conservation Board has hired John Crofe and Associates, Des Moines, to draw up development plans for the man-made lake site north of Algona. The firm is also to make an analysis of public recreation facilities already in existence in Kossuth with recommendations on what could be planned for the future. They will formulate a 5-year plan with a projection to 1980, according to Al Buchanan, secretary of the Kossuth board. Buchanan said Monday that the board hopes to have the lake site completed in six weeks. If the board signs a contract for the plan, it will be eligible to apply for $4,500 federal funds under the Land and Water Conservation Act. Allocation of these federal funds is under the control of the State Conservation Commission. The Land and Water Conservation funds are supplemented by the sale of "Golden Eagle Passports" for entrance into certain designated federal areas and a portion of the fees charged locally at other public recreation areas. Plans for the lake site north of Algona include facilities for cooking, a shelter house with water, further development of swimming facilities and possibly a camping area. The Kossuth board hopes to have the major part of the work on the 120-acre site completed this summer. Other plans include development of 40 acres on what is known as Michaelson Marsh three miles northwest of Titonka into a duck marsh with wildlife plantings for nesting sites and winter protection for upland game and waterfowl. Also contemplated is development of 41 acres along the Des Moines River nine miles south of Algona. This was given to the board by Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Steele several months ago.

GOOD NEIGHBORS KNOW 1 AROUND THE TOWN& , COUNTRY 1 Meet Earl Zeigler Of Algona Our Country Neighbor this week is Earl Zeigler, who has never lived in any house but the one he now occupies about five miles northeast of Algona. He claims he's semi-retired, because he is farming only 320 acres this year, with 127 acres of corn, 95 acres of beans, 20 acres each of pasture and hay and some government acreage. Earl, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur Zeigler, Algona, who retired from the farm about nine years ago, was born on the farm where he is now head man, farming in partnership with his father and an aunt. A small machine shed was recently added to the landscape there and sometime in the future he would like to add a larger one. His hobbies include hunting and fishing - undoubtedly running parallel to his memberships in the Izaak Walton League, Kossuth Pistol and Rifle Club and National Rifle Assn. Earl's favorite task on the place is field work. He raises a few beef cattle, mostly whiteface, and far- rows about 50 sows each year, with the offspring being fed for market. Mrs. Zeigler is the former Dorothy Brown and her mother, Mrs. Leona Hiserodt, lives in Algona. She and Earl both attended Algona High and met the re. They were married here June 10, 1942 and have three children, Tom, 23, Gordon, 15, and Nancy, 4. Mrs. Zeigler is a member of the Rebekah Lodge and her principal hobby is gardening of all varieties.
