The Smoke Shop and news stand will be continued as in the past, and, the same employes will be on band to serve customers. This part of the business has grown to demand the time of the entire crew.

The purchase price was $125, and the former owner was Mrs. A. Vanderlinden. The deal was handled by H. W. Miller, who as a member of the club has been active in boys' and girls' workiin Algona. The tract is oiblong, with the north edge on the "lover's lane" road that runs east and west from the Plum Creek station. The entrance to the park will be on the east side of the river bridge, and this road, it is understood, will be graded and graveled. The land, which has a good stand of native timber, borders on the river and goes south for some distance. River Bam Jfear By. At the north end of the tract, about 100 feet south of the bridge, is one of the county conservation league dams, which gives a high water level, with a falls effect and a running stream all bordering on the park.

TOPS STATE IN THE AAA SIGN-UP unty tops any other to date by more than Kossuth Iowa county a third in percentage of farmers signing intention sheets for the 1939 AAA prigram. According to Friday's Des Moines Register, hoped, a new cabin can be erected for the use of the Scouts, with a rustic fireplace built of native stone, near the water's edge. Underbrush and excess shrubbery will be removed from some of the area for picnic purposes, but the remainder will be left in ids natural state to furnish a real nature study project for the" scouts. It is hoped to encourage wild life such as squirrels, pheasants, rabbits, and birds to make the park their home for the benefit of. scout instruction. Management' Undecided. Management of the park area has not yet been worked out, but it is assumed that it will be done under the direction of the club, probably by a trusteeship. It to also believed the club will incorporate in order to have ownership of the land vested In the club, though there are proposals that it be turned over to the county as a park, with stipulations as to name and use. ' The park is designed for the use of boys' and girls' organizations, and not as a rendevous for unorganized groups. Thus there would be some measure of control and instruction guaranteed, fulfilling the objective of the club In making the purchase. Rules and regulations are to be adopted by the club, and a "date" book for organizations who wish to use it at certain times will be maintained. Dedication Planned. In establishing the park the club is fulfilling one of the objectives of Kiwanis clubs through the north American continent, and that is the furtherance of boys' and girls' work, with particular emphasis on the vanishing frontier and wildlife conditions. As soon as the area can be cleaned, fenced, and prepared for use it is planned to have a dedication service, to which Kiwanis district and state leaders will be Invited, This service will be held at the park, It is planned. 160,976 Iowa cent have signed.
