The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, Jan. 28,1937 J.F.OVERMYERS WCAUFORWA Algona Folks Spending Winter at Pasadena Find Weather Chilly Pasadena, Calif., Jan. 20, 1937.— Friend Bill: I guess in a way we came at the wrong time as they «ay this is the coldest winter they have had in fifteen years; we are having freezing weather at night just now, last night from 25 to 28, ao tilings get nipped and these poor people with the citrus orchards have the time of their life trying to save their crops, ni enclose a clipping which will give you some idea of what they are up against It takes just as many coven to keep warm at nights as it does at home to keep warm. When the sun comes out during the day it warms up. Sunday, we took a long drive up or down, I don't know which, along the ocean, through Hollywood, through the University grounds, and on to Santa Monica, back through Long Beach home, a very nice -drive. Then we went with the R, H. Millers yesterday through ' Long Beach; saw Mr. Pangburn and one of tiie girls. Mrs. Pangburn was quite nick with heart trouble, BO we didnt get to see her. We tried to find Wolcott, but failed in locating him. From there we went to San Pedro where we saw the docks and boats tied up; one man said there were 93. Everything seemed to be quiet and orderly, but they are anxious to have the strike set- tied. They are having S3 days of horse racing here; we have been wanting to go out had planned to go today, but we felt it would be rather cold to sit there all afternoon, so put it off till another day. There is the place the sports spend their money, as I see by the papers the betting tvns as high as 9600,000 in one day. We keep on the go most of the time, but .have not made any long trips yet, which we expect to make later when it warms up. I am enclosing a check for the papers. We missed the paper last week. With best wishes to all, X am, yours truly, J. F. Overmyer. SENECA NEWS Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Christiansen and daughter of fltngsted spent Sunday at the R. J. Campbell home.

A New Court House Swea City Herald: Algona Upper Des Moines again suggests a new court house for Kossuth county, pointing out a substantial part of the cost might be obtained through a government grant. We do not know how the remain- Ing 25,000 Inhabitants of the county feel about it, but generally speaking we are opposed to taking government money for local improvements. At the risk of being dubbed queer, we have become squeamish about joining these "gimme" fellows who have made such onslaughts on the federal treasury the last four years. If' our government at Washington is to endure we must quit making these raids on the treasury. Be that as it is, the Upper Des Moines' hint that the time is close at hand when serious consideration must be given to a new court house is well taken. The old building has reached a state where it should be replaced with a new one. In previous year jealousies of the communities outside Algona have stood in the way of the improvement. Moreover, the old county division fight is still fresh In the minds of us older inhabitants. But as time goes on these causes lost their force. The Upper Des Moines places the cost of the new structure at $250,000. Kossuth county is large enough and rich enough to stand the improvement At the main entrance place a bronze plate with this inscription: "The people of Kossuth county built this structure with their own money. They did not ask for a grab from the government/' It would then be unique throughout .he length and breadth of the land. It would be a monument to a sober, industrious and honest people.
