SJOSTRANDS IN CAR CRASH IN MINNESOTA Hit Car Which Makes 'U' Turn in Front of Them. Mrs. M. A. Sjostrand, wife of the local First Lutheran pastor, suffered neck and back injuries in an automobile accident at 8 o'clock last week Tuesday evening on the highway two miles north of Winnebago, Minn. The Rev. and Mrs. Sjostrand, with their son Ronald, were on their way home from 'St. Peter, Minn., where they had spent a few days with Mr. Sjostrand's parents. Mr. Sjostrand, who drives a 1936 Plymouth, was coming south on the pavement, when Edw. Deinhart, Guckeen, Minn., swerved from behind a parked truck and made a "U" turn on the paving directly in front of the Sjostrand car. Mr. Sjos'trand had his choice of taking a deep grade or running into the Deinhart car. He was traveling slowly, so he chose the car. Before doing so, he had skidded 50-odd feet, with two wheels on the pavement and two on the shoulder. Both the Deinhart car, a 1926 Chevrolet coupe, and the Sjostrand car were badly damaged. The Sjos- trands went back to St. Peter for the night, then drove their car as far as Bancroft Wednesday night. Neither Mr. Sjostrand nor Mr. Deinhart carried collision insurance, and settlement of damages has not yet been made. Mrs. Sjostrand's Injuries were not serious. rnmittees Studying Airport SEEK TO IID PRESENT AU-AULTS m Presented on irsday is Not itisfactory. pC. F.

" ' r« SpscJtjj , t aj£ he hw automobiles would ever be numerous. , • Mr. Bonar questioned also legality of the inclusion of conditional phrases in the petition. These phases made the airport proposal dependent upon CAA approval and the landing of commercial airliners at the local field. These are matters which could not be considered legally, he believes, in calling for the election. It would be entirely possible, and also commendable, for the council and the Chamber to have an "understanding" that these contingencies be met before the bonds were issued, but they might, if included in the enabling petition, seriously affect the legality of the entire procedure, and make the bonds unsaleable. Lower Bond Issue. . . Mr. Bonar and others since the meeting have reached figures to ebow that only between $36,000 and $40,000 could be raised in a 20-year neriod by a one and one-quarter mill tax levy in Algona, consider- in e; payment of interest, which must be included inside the limit. The law limits the period the bonds may run to 20 years. Algona's valuation is $2,217,564, according to* figures at the county auditor's office. At a mill and a nuarter this would bring in $2771.95 annually, if all taxes were paid- It has been estimated that the interest charge on a $50,000 issue would be in the neighborhood of a 1 ROO per year, thus leaving some $1200 to $1300 for the retirement of bonds, This would not be sufficient to retire the bonds in the 20-year time limit. Consideration Continues, The Chamber and council coni- mltees are scheduled to meet this week to consider ways and means of obtaining the airport, and if possible complete the legal procedure in time to permit a vote at the regular election' • A new petition, signed by at least 25 per cent of the voters at the 1937 city election, will be secured. Estimates of earning powers of the airport will be checked with fteures on airports npw in operation. The law permits the pay> ment of ftirport costs of all from the city general fund, and a profit is .assured the pity by use of the airport, this profit can he uaecl to decrease t^e Indebted- n,esfl or pay jtfte interest.

Vi; '' At any rate Sir. Osterbaner has sent to the Advance a cartoon from a Chicago paper (Goodness no! Not the Tribune or the Dally Kews) In which a WPA worker Is screwing a plaque to the wall of a WPA building, and the plaque says: "To the everlasting honor of Harry L., Hopkins, an American boy from Iowa who spent 9 billions of his conn- try's money, and not a dollar stuck to his fingers." What seems to have caught the fancy of Mr. Osterbaner and stirred pride in his old home state was the fact that Hopkins hails from Iowa. Mr. Osterbaner wrote a suggested box heading for the cartoon: "An American Boy from IOWA."

Eleven inches of snow (officially) fell Thursday and Friday, amounting to 1.02 inches rainfall. The snow began falling early Thursday morning and continued all day, with 10 inches recorded up to 7 o'clock that evening. Another inch of snow fell Friday. The snow brought with it a cold wave, the most severe of the winter ; the mercury skidded to 12 below Friday morning, and to 15 below Saturday morning. Sunday was warmer, the temperature rising to 41 degrees above, and though not. much running water was in evidence from thawing, the snow did settle, so that it Is now only about five inches in depth. 'Inhere Is not as much snow in the country, with the ground almost uncovered in places, except where snow fences or natural obstacles caused drifts. Roads on the main highways were for the most part immediately opened, except where, cuts were filled by drifting snow. Drifting snow Thursday and Friday held visibility to a few hundred feet, but the, roads were not blocked at any time. The official weather instruments were molested by vandals last week Wednesday, and the record for that day is incorrect, but the record for the week, as kept by L. M.

J3-"The Conservation League fait here plans a 3ua- ipr'group, action to.be tafcen at WILL OPEN ON SATURDAY AND CLOSE AUG. 23 Earlier Date Chosen to Avoid Opening of Schools. This year's Kossuth county fair will be held two weeks earlier than it has ever been held in its long history, for the fair board, meeting with an Algona Chamber of Commecre committee Monday, set the dates for August 19, 20, 21, 22, and 23. The opening day, August 19, is on a Saturday, and will be enrty day, and there will be no admission charge at the gates. The first day of the fair program, will be Sunday, August 20, and free attractions and other events will begin on that day. Some special attractions will also be presented for that day. Earlier Date Advantages. The earlier date was selected after a two-hour discussion at the meeting as being better than the first week in September, which has heretofore been the customary fair tmie. The principal objection to the September date is that the fair and opening of schools interfere with attendance and attractions. Another factor is that the earlier date will, on the average, assure the fair of better weather conditions. The fair has in recent years experienced rainy and cold weather in September which has cut down attendance and hampered all activities. Little change will be made in the exhibits with the single exception of corn. All other crops are in showing stage by the latter part of August, and fruits, vegetables, flowers .and. similar early, matur- ;v ^Harvests Will be Completed. The Kossuth fair, in starting on Saturday, is following the practice which has been accepted by many successful fairs In the midwest in recent years. The Saturday entry day enables farmers to bring exhibits to town on a regular shopping day, thus eliminating an extra trip to town. By the latter part of August farmers have completed .harvest with modern machinery and are then ready for some form of entertainment, and the fair coming at that time" will attract many who otherwise would not come in September. The board and committee also agreed on a Fourth of July celebration this year. The Fourth comes on a Tuesday, and this year's event will be a one-day celebration. The celebration has been a money-maker for the Kossuth fair and crowds have been increasing each year because of the ex- cellance of the programs presented. Attractions Can be "Split" Something new in attractions will be secured for this year's fair, and the earlier, date, coupled with the Saturday-to-Wednesday dates will be beneficial. Attractions can be "split" with fairs operating on a Tuesday-to-Friday schedule, the Kossuth fair taking the Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday shows, and the "splitting" fair the Thursday and Friday shows. Free attractions must be bought by the full week, hence by "subletting" the act out for the time not used herej the local fair can save on expense.
