Determined Not to Be "Out In Cold" On All Connections 75 AT MEETING LAST THURSDAY Whittemore, the luckless, town when It comes to state highways, turned out enmasse, last Thursday night, and trie.d to figure out what—if anything—could be done to retain highway 44, or at the worst, get an adequate stub connection with either 44 or 18, and of concrete. O. J. Ditto, state highway commissioner, was present, and in a straightforward manner answered questions put to him regarding the situation, and discussed the matter with the WhJttemore folks. A delegation from Fenton and Algona was also present Whittemore Fights Following the talk by Mr. Ditto, John Uhlenhake and Dr. H. K. Woodward announced committees that would meet at a date in the near future with the state highway commission. Uhlenhake's committee from the Whittemore Community Club, Is as follows: Frank Balgeman, J. M. Fleming, Ralph Bartlett and Uhlenhake. Dr. Woodward stated*that thn council would send Frank Besten- Ichner. James Geelan and Mayor Woodward. The tentative date for the meeting was Dec. 20 or 21, or somewhere in that vicinity. Right to Object That Whittemore had a distinct and privileged right to make solid objections was pointed out by several, speaker*. Dr. McCreery pointed out that Whittemore had eliminated a few year* ago highway IS, jand now menvri to M-I«ft out in fbe cold on highway 44. O. J. Ditto then explained that the commission had agreed to the new relocation of 44, west of "Whittemore, when a delegation of Emmetsburg business men had appeared before it, and agreed to pave the highway with Palo Alto's newly voted road bonds, If the commission would agree to relocate part of the highway In Palo Alto county. Question of Stub Road Assuming that the worst happens, and the new road Is built in Palo Alto county, Whittemore folks asked Ditto what the chances would be to obtain a paved, concrete stub connecting with the main highways. Ditto assured the group that It would have a very good chance to get such a connection, and would have its choice between connecting with either 44 or 18. The concen- sus of opinion was that the paved connection should be from Whittemore to highway 18. Other speakers on the matter of highways were Alex Bonnstetter, state representative, Phil KohJ- haas, representative-elect, and O. 8. Relley, Algona Chamber of Commerce secretary- Safety Council Talk* R. H. Miller, of Algona, president of the Kossuth Safety Council, gave a brief talk explaining the purposes of the new organization and hoped to b« able to organize a Whittemore unit in the near future Mr. Reiley also discussed the same organization. following the meeting a Dutch lunch was served, and informal discussion of the highway question carried on by nearly everyone. About 75 men from Whittemore, Fenton and Algona were present Whittemore Ladies Injured After Skid Four Whittemore women, riding in the W. A. Rusch car, driven by Mrs. Rusch, were shaken up and jolted and received somfe bruises and cuts last Thursday morning, when their car skidded from the highway and into a ditch just above the Milwaukee trestle north of Algona. The Rusch machine was making the curve and in trying to get a start for the grade which was slippery, a slight application of the accelerator sent the car into a spin, and into the ditch. The ladies pointed out that the top half of the hill had been sanded, but the lower half had not, and that in the future similar accidents would be prevented if the entire hill were sanded after getting into a slippery condition. Santa Claw, Candy, Movies Here Today Santa Claus w«* in Algon* today bringing not only Christmas Joy and cheer, but ftiao fCM gift* in the form of candy presents and free moving pictures.

Store* will remain 09*0 *41 evening*, from Pee. M on, tb* frjif Q* Bridge Foreman Buried Beneath Ton of Lumber G. I. Merryman, Algona. county bridge foreman, was buried under over a ton of bridge planking and lumber, last Thursday, while working on a bridge five miles ndtth of Wesley. He suffered a compound facture of the leg and possibly other injuries, but is recovering and probably will have no .lasting effects from the accident. How Merryman escaped without losing his life is almost an act of providence. Had he fallen in almost any other position, his back, skull or thighs would surely have taken the brunt of the weight. The rest of the crew working on the bridge struggled frantically to release him, and with the aid of two men from a county truck finally got Merryman free and then rushed him to a hospital.
