The Algona S 'V ) » nkfl, AJgotm, IQW&, June 2,1&45 sfttftfffew FARM BUILDING MAY BE MADE Eobert Loss, U. S. D. A. Chairman, Sets Out Deferments Made in New Order , « Robert M. Loss, chairman of the Kossuth County U. S. D. A. War Board stated recenty, "in general, all construction wihch is not essential directly or indirectly to the successful prosecution of the wflr and which involves the utilization of labor, material, or construction plant urgently needed in the war effort is to be deferred for the duration of the emergency. To achieve this purpose the War Production Board issued Conservation Order L-41." "'This War Production Board, of Washington, D. C.," continued Mr. Loss, "recognizes, however, that a limited amount of construction by farmers is necessary to maintain and increase production to meet the agricultural goals and that certain off-the-farm facilities are also needed for the production, handling and ^processing of farm products." Exemptions Made The following types of agricultural construction are exempt under Conservation Order L-41, and, thcro •fore, do not require special permission to begin construction: a. Farm construction begun prior to April 9, 1942. Ib. Maintenance and repairs. • c. Reconstruction or restoration of farm residential construction damaged or destroyed after Dec. 31, 1941, by fire, flood, tornado, earthquake, act of God, or by public enemy; c. Construction during any 12- month period as follows: .(1) Farm dwelling construction costing less than 1 $500 per farm. (2) Other farm buildings and construction costing less than $1,000 per farm. (3) Processing plants, creameries, warehouses, or other off-the-farm •construction, if the estimated cost is Jess than .$5,000 per project. Must Be Authorized Except for the exemptions noted above* Mr. Loss stated, "no person shall, after the date of issuance of this order (April 9, 1942), begin construction or order, purchase, accept delivery of, withdraw from inventory, or in any other manner secure or use material or construction plant in 'order to begin construction unles the construction has been or is hereafter authorized by the Director of Priorities of the Office of Production Mangement or the Director >of Industry Operations of the War Production Board by the issuance of (a) a preference rating order or certificate as provided in the Order: or (b) an order from the War Production Board specifically authorizing the construction." MRS. EMMA OLSON, UNION TOWNSHIP, FOUR SCORE TEN ' Union: Mrs. Emma Olson, mother of Mrs. F. S. Thompson, known to her many friends as "Grandma Olson", celebrated her 90th birthday anniversary last Thursday. She received many beautiful cards of congratulations. One card came from the pupils of school district Nlo. 4 and their teacher, Mrs. Evelyn Johnson. Each pupil had signed hia own name. They also sent a school picture. She receied mny gifts and numerous bouquets of flowers from her admiring friends. She is very active and alert, doing most any form of house work.

Swimming Pool to Open Monday Much to the enjoyment and satisfaction of Algona lovers of swimming the Municipal Swimming Pool will open for the season next Monday, at noon. Because of emergency conditions much specuation had been indulged in by swimming lovers as to whether or not the pool would operate during the duration. However, members of the city council felt that provision should be continued to accommodate those who enjoy swimming and water sports. Some of Personnel New The life guards this year will Ibe Roger Michel, who served last year and Russell Thorpe, both Algona boys. The girls' attendants will be Betty Scan- Jan and Barbara Pool. Three forenoons of the week will be given free to children under 15, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The other three forenoons of the week will be open to only classes for instructions in swimming. On Sundays the pool will •open at 1:30 in the afternoon. In TA* WEEK'S NEWS ' annum STEMS nmbcturtiKtt roK The Upper Des Moifies RIVER OF SUPPLIES THAT FLOWS TO RUSSIA—Andimishk, Persia—A view of the end- ess stream of trucks that flow steadily through Persia on the way to Russia from the United States and Britain with vital supplies for the gallant Red Army. In addition to this stream by road there is another, heavier stream by all available rail facilities. The government is cooperating In this great movement of material. In the current battles on the Russian front, in the Crimea and in the Kharkov offensive, where the Russians claimed Monday to hrive captured over 300 towns from the Germans, American tanks already are in action. MAKES "RED BOOK"—Boston, Mass.: Jim Tobin, Braves pitcher, wrote baseball history against the Cubs last' week, when he batted out three consecutive home runs. Jim performed a feat no other big league pitcher has ever done. Only other pitcher to do the trick was Guy Hecker of the American Association in 1886. FIRST BUYER OF RATIONED GAS—New York: The first day of gasoline rationing on the eastern seaboard, was just one minute old when Mrs. Elizabeth Berry, employee of a broadcasting company, pulled up at Jack Felderman's Gas Station on New York's 36th St. and made the first purchase of rationed gas. She has an "A" card. Her buy was three units worth—nine gallons. Safetygrams Made Corporal John Daugfian who is now located in Dutch Guiana, South America, was recently made a corporal, ac•*"-cording to word received last week by his parents, Mr. and Mrs.. W. T. Daughan. John has been in South I America for several months, and was previously located at Trini•dad. His brother, Bill, is in North Ireland. Horses vs. Trucks A one-half ton truck collided wan « horse with such force that -1- tfaough the horse survived, considerable damage was done to the truck. The horse was owned by P. L. Judge of Melrose. Robert Joseph Parks also of Melrose, driver of the truck, received leg injuries in the «rash. One of the most important problems all of us have to contend with during the national emergency is the pedestrian problem. Because' of the curtailment of automobile driving, many of us will be walking. Man power is at a premium, and the loss of life and limb through pedestrian accidents is a loss to the national war problem. There are a lot of poorly maintained automobiles on the road right now. Many cars have- bad tires. More pedestrians are on the highways, and the problem is very acute. Your community should have special programs 'Of pedestrian education for people of all ages, groups and occupations. Safe-walking slogans should be featured in all educational efforts. (Defense industries can bring messages to employees as they leave the plant and become pedestrians to be careful on their way home. Traffic, control by the police forco is more essential now than ever. Crosswalk lanes should be distinctly marked. Additional sidewalks should be built. Lighting should be improved and additional lighting installed where necessary. •If you are a pedestrian, be careful—if you are an automobile driver, look out for the pedestrian.
