W. Bates, as receiver for the State Rolfe, Iowa.

Rewrites Of News From Last Friday'i Kossuth County Advance NEW PARKING ON STATE ST. PASSES Chief discussion of the city council meeting, held last Thursday, other than the handling of 'routine matters, pertained to the possibility of adopting an ordinance regulating the solicitation of out-of- town peddlers In Algona. Will F. Brown, local photographer, through his attorney, P. A. Danson, requested that the council take some action to eithe-r regulate or prohibit the outsiders from coming Into Algona and peddling picture coupons. Jesse L. Bonar, city attorney, declared that he believed such an ordinance would be unconstitutional. Cites Other Cities Danson and Brown, however, contend that if other cities such as Spencer can have municipal regulations requiring these outside peddlers to pay daily license fees to .canvass, a similar ordinance can be adopted here. Many Iowa cities, they contend, regulate these peddlers. In some cases, it was also pointed out, it is necessary for out-of-town peddlers to obtain the consent of the city council to make a house to house canvass, and us the council only meets once a month or so, the peddlers are unable to wait around to get permission. Mr. Brown, In an effort to get the measure into effect, made a canvass of representative business men, and reports that an Ordinance not only covering photographers from outside, but all other lines of house-to-house peddling, would meet with general acceptance and even applause. And in the meanwhile it seems that nothing will be done. New Parking Adopted Another measure of importance that did successfully pass, was the adoption of a measure to require 45 degree angle parking (diagonal) aftt 1 .' the new paving on State street is completed. This will mean an end to the double and triple parking on State street. It was understood that officers will be. instructed to supervise the street, and Instruct motorists whenever possible in the new parking system. No intention is contemplated of being severe with those not aware of the change, but to conduct a system of educating drivers to observe the new way of parking. Many papt'/s regarding the paving were also signed, to comply with PWA rules and regulations. Two brothers, one of them, of Algona, were reunited after a separation of 28 years, through the efforts of the Duluth, Minn. Family Welfare Society, according to a recent news story in the Duluth Herald & News Tribune, sent us by Lloyd Gustafson of the newspaper. The two brothers, William and Enoch Fors, left to right in the above picture, are natives of Superior, Wis. Enoch is living here. In addition, the whereabouts of another brother, Verner, wns learned. He is at Markham, Washington. The reunion of the brothers climaxed more than a year's wtorlc of tracing former neighbors of the family in Superior, nnd court records. Enoch is a teacher.
