ALL TOWNSHIPS GET GRADING OR GRAVELING Plans Approved by Trustees in Meet Here Tuesday. ^ POLICE FORGE TO REMAIN AT 2 FOR^RESENT Nobody to Be Named to Replace Late Frank Green. Mayor C. F. Specht said last night no one has yet been appointed to the police force to fill the vacancy caused by the sudden death Saturday of Frank Green, who has been a member of the force some seven years. Mr. Specht said he had received many applications for appointment, but that for the present, at least, the city would have only the present two members of the force, Van Alstyne and Valentine. Mr. Van Alstyne, who has served on the force for a number of years as night marshal, was advanced to the day post, and Mr. Valentine is covering the night or "dogwatch" duty. Police in cities the size of Algona are appointed by the mayor with approval by the city council. There Is no "chief" as the term is usually applied, the mayor acting ing that capacity, but Mr. G-reen had been given that term as a more or less honorary title by the general public, and he was the active head of the force of three men. Mr. Specht indicated last night that on occasion there would be an added man on the force, probably on Saturday nights and 'at other periods of traffic congestion. If the city can get along with the present force without difficulty there would be a saving of the salary on the already over-burdened general fund. Up to a year or so ago the police duties were handled by Mr. Green and Mr. Van Alstyne. A petition to the council asked the addition of a third man for night duty following a series of petty thefts and break-ins. The definite policy of whether to have three men all the time, or two full-time and one part-time man, may be considered at the next meeting of the council, which is scheduled for next week Thursday night. • Sawyer Lands 7-Ft.
