Uncle Sam's war factories need your help to keep up full-blast production! Our all-out effort is demanding millions of tons of scrap metals and other materials to keep our war machine running Why? Because roughly fifty percent of scrap iron and steel is required to make the steel that goes into every tank and gun for our armed forces! And there is only a two weeks reserve supply of scrap on hand. That's why scrap collection is a vital national necessity right now! — an[d you can help make the scrap drive a resounding success. This part of the county has lagged behind in scrap collection—but not for long. The following groups: KLwanis, Rotary, Veteran! of Foreign Wars, American Legion^junior Chamber _of Com- mmTrfe United Service Women of America, and the Algona Chamber of Commerce; the newspapers aaid the Algona business men listed below are uniting with Chairman P. J. KoWhaas in their efforts to round uplvery bit of scrap in Algona's immediate rur^territory including ^.Creek Cresco, Irvington, Union, Sherman, Eiverdale, the west half of Sherman and the east half of Gaxfield townships. There will be some rip-snorting contests among the townships to see who getem the most scrap. The sMe high per person on scrap collected is 400 Ibs.
