New Pastor —Rev. F. C. Volzke. The Rev. and Mrs. C. J. Volzke, of Corning, arrived in Algona yesterday to accept a call to the Algona Baptist church and he will conduct the regular services at the church next > Sunday morning and evening. The Rev. Mr. Volzke has been at Corning several years, increasing the membership there from 70 to more than 300 members and he comes here highly recommended. He will fll the vacancy left by the Rev. Robert C. Schwyhart, who left here three .months ago to accept a position as chap- plain In the navy. A* letter from him to Algona friends last week stated that he was scheduled to leave the west coast aboard the training ship tl. S. S. Wyoming for the isalnd of Porto Rico Tuesday of this week. Mrs. Schwyhart is spending the FARM MEETING HELD TUESDAY BYHAGGPOST Legionnaires Hear Talks by Three Farmers. Memories of farming in England were told by Clark Scuffham at the January meeting of Hagg post of the Legion Tuesday night. Mr. Scuffham came to this country a number of years ago from England, and spoke on conservation, as needed in this country and as practiced in the old country, where the land has been consistently farmed for many many Work of Kossuth Safety Council Told by Secretary years. H. J. Bode spoke on the breed- Ing of livestock, and the benefits to farmers. More stock is needed on every farm, particularly as an aid to soil conservation. Dr. J. 0. F. Price, veterinarian, spoke on diseases of livestock, particularly the hoof and mouth disease, and preventions. Few farmers, he said, realize the tremendous losses iiburred through animal disease. John Kain spoke on .plant life, with relation to the feeding of a balanced ration to beef and milk By 0. S. Keiley. The Kossuth County Safety Council, a unit of the Iowa State Safety Council, was organized in Algona November 6, 1936, and reached a membership in the county in 1937 of 300 members. Officers elected at that time and who served in 1937 were R. H. Miller, president, Antone Johnson, vice president, Mrs. H. L. Gilmore, vice president, Dr. H. E. Woodward, Whittemore, vice president, Oliver S. Reiley, secretary, and J, D. Lowe, treasurer. These officers and some others of the Council held a number of meetings over the county last winter and spring, and on a number of occasions showed' safety films. Also during this time Secretary Reiley, accompanied by State Patrolmen Al Sterzing ant Joe West, held meetings and showed the safety films In every high school of the county, and in some rural schools, also a few schools out of the county. At the first of the year the Kos suth Council sponsored a contes to stimulate interest in the safet 1 council, and also to publicize th Dodge, and one driven by -Xiabs, Lone Rock. These \VUU1I\S1*| «»•*- — - » matter of safety by asking th members to answer 13 questions all of which had to do with th rst fatality in the county 937. The contest ran for for south of Elmore, were killed at six nonths and 11 days, and on July 1, 1937, tho first fatality occur- ed two miles west of Durt, re- ulting from the crash of a car riven by Philip Ryerson, of Fort Emil were in the he first two fatalities :ounty. August 2, Juan Madira was kill- d when his car was ditched on a country road near Lakota. These ,hree fatalities within a period of ,wo weeks, were the only serious accidents till two months later, when on November 2, H. V. Mc- Laughlln, of Des- Moines, .and his driver, Lowell Kruse, were killed on a country highway one mile east of St. Joe. The next day, November 3, Fred Simpson, farmer near Bancroft, was killed when his car upset on a country road corner near Seneca. It was pointed out at that time and it is significant to note that these six fatalities occuring in two groups of three each, happened, on country Northwestern railroad crossing one mile north of Burt, when struck by the passenger train. This catastrope, the worst ever reported in Kossuth county, occurred at 6:25 p. m. on a paved highway on an open crossing, that is, where the view of the railroad tracks was not obscured. This was on Thursday evening, December 16. Early the following Sunday morning, Herman Balvance, of Bancroft, was struck by a car a mile north of Bancroft on 169, a paved route, as he was walking towards town after his car had stalled on the same highway. The" first six months of 1937 were free from any fatalities and very few accidents in all were reported while the last six months witnessed the killing of 12 people, an average of two each month. This was one above the 1936 mark, which was 11. highways. About five or six weeks later, early in December, five young men of Kossuth county, living just by Robert Williams, of Algona, who was mailed a check for $5, from the Safety Council. The schools of the county are cooperating by teaching safety methods in regular cla.ss work, and the county council will hold a number of other meetings in the other towns of the county during the winter months to renew memberships in the council for 1938. Membership dues for the year are 50 cents, and everyone interested in this matter should join immediately at the Chamber of Commerce office in Algona. Both service clubs in Algona, the Rotary and Kiwanis, joined 100 per cent in 1937, and a great many members of the Legion are members also. The Legion is cooperating this year with a number of placards and safety stickers for cars, which are being distributed this week.
