Paul Danburg, architect, and representing the Lenci, Englund & Stavn Co., contractors, Virginia and Hibbing, Minn., and his office force arrived in Algona Tuesday morning and have set up offices 'n the basement rooms under the Gamble Store. This morning, Thursday, the first earth on the detention camp grounds was urned when a "bulldozer" began operations in excavating for the building; Lumber and materials are arriving on a sped-up schedule now and within a few days ac- ual construction will be started. VLr. Danburg said that there will >e at least 650 carpenters, elec- ricians, plumbers, laborers and ainters on the job through the hree months which has been set y the government for completion f the camp buildings. With the xception of the day laborers all f the trade labor will be under .urisdiction of the respective trade unions. One Story Buildings The buildings, probably in the neighborhood of 200, will be of one story construction. They will Saddle Horse Club To Show At Fair The North Kossuth Sa'ddle Horse Club, centering mostly around Swea City, will perform at the Kossuth Couniy Victory Fair and Achievement Show to be held September 2 J and 25. In keeping with the war conditions, the fair has been shortened to two days and in so far as possible more local talent will be used for entertainment. The 4-H club, garden, farm crops and school departments are all being maintained this year, but the open class livestock, baked goods and fancy .vork departments have been eliminated. ^ The Fair board met last Monday evening to complete inal plans and a complete program has been announced. Edward Haack, Lone Rock, Volunteers be frame, and modern with lighting and heating facilities. They will be built in the nature of barracks to house many men. Then there will be the buildings to house the soldier guards, too. We understand that the officers will try to find living quarters in the city. And this will add to the problem of housing while the better than 600 men are here to build the camp. Clarence Phillips, Chamber of Commerce secretary, said today that there would be probably several hundred trailer houses bring most of the workers here and these trailers can be hooked up to lighting and sanitation openings in several different,sections-in the city. CARPENTERS UNION OPENS OFFICE Carl Westergaard, Fort Dodge, representing the carpenters union, has opened office in rooms 13 and 15 in the Haggard & Peterson building, and will serve as business agent for the union during the building of the prison camp here. Mr. Westergaard estimates that at least 500 carpenters will be used on the job. They will come in from other cities and localities. The carpenters must be members of _ the union and those who are not will take out membership'be- fore they can be assigned to work on the camp. The admission fee is $35, with $10 down payment and $10 per week until paid. The scale paid carpenters is $1.15 per hour, forty hour week, with time and one-half for over eight-hour day and for the sixth eight-hour day in the week. All carpenters coming here to work must clear through the U. S. employment of- to here before they can get a card,, to work on the prison camp.

He also won a 22nd place in the production contest with Wayne Barr placing 23rd. Gerald Brown placed eighth in a class of twenty-four Guernsey heifers and won second in the produce of dam class. .ey, county Salvage Chairman, of Lakota has started to visit the various communities of the coun- y in preparation for this event. The nation's scrap pile is run- iing low, particularly of heavy scrap metal. This drive will concentrate on heavy metal, and no wire or light sheet metal will be gathered. Facilities are so rushed for bailing wire, that it cannot be handled. Heavy scrap metal does not mean that each piece must be heayy, but it means solid metal items. Nuts and bolts, even though small are considered heavy scrap. Wire and light sheet metal are not heavy scrap. It is planned that the drive in all communities will take place the same day, with all business houses closing to help the farmers in the nearby areas. Farmers are urged to start getting their scrap ready now whenever the weather does not permit work in the on Elston Joins the Army Air Forces Pvt.

The farmers of Kossuth County must subscribe to at least $150,000.00 more in bonds in ordei that the county can meet its quota of $1,153,000.00. The towns still have about $25,000.00 to go to buy their share of bonds, according to the War Civilians Committee-. While purchases of bonds in the county are now over $500,000.00, that is less than half of the quota which must be purchased this month. Everyone is urged to go to their nearest issuing agency at once, so there will not be a last minute rush. Returns Not Complete Returns are not complete, but some interesting comparisons can be made. In several cases the subscriptions of adjoining townships are twice that of neighboring townships. In some townships the committees are making a r*-- canvass to try to get additional subscriptions. It is the hope of the War Activities Committee that when final results are in, every town and township will have done its share. Every person and every community should pitch in and help the country, like th° neighbors help out a family in trouble. Many Volunteer Increase Many people are voluntarily increasing their subscriptions when they make their purchases. In one day this week over $10,000.00 in purchases over and above subscriptions were reported to headquarters. However, it is known that many subscriptions fall far short of ability to buy War Bonds. It is likewise regrettable that there ai-rf some people of means who are not.wiUingto'-tend any of -their, -„— -.--,- P . v * ™ WM! money to i Uncle: Sam; SSmV o/fo£ene1f tf ti^& : wfa :: Judg^H^£ people are abusive to the Edward Haack, son of Mr. and VIrs.

Everything in the food line is cov- . ered from baby food to a sack of sugar. The grocery stores are divided into four, groups, No. 1 that retail store with an annual gross of less than $56,000 and No. 2 .hat store with an annual gross of more than $50,000 but less than •5250,000, while Nos. 3 and 4] are ;he .chain store, groups."

Former Ceilings as of 1942 The reason for the Community- eiling Prices now being fixed in. mformity is to equalize and bal- nce the price in every store.. Heretofore the ceiling price was= governed by the retailer's top price on ah item as of April, 1942. IJ was found that in many cases these prices varied on similar items as much as 3c per item, either way, higher or lower. In some cases where the price on any item had been high this placed an unfair competitive comparison. with other merchants. Hence the- new order, fixing legal ceiling. prices equally upon all items. within the trade area. Mason City Area. Kossuth county is one of the ten counties in north Iowa designated as the Mason City area. The others are Dickinson, Emmef, Winnebago, Worth, Mitchell, Howard, Clay, Palo Alto, Hancock, Cerro Gordo and Floyd.
