Paul Carlson, queried a* to the charge* that clothing intended for the R*d Crosn relief had turned up In DM Moine», said he would send full details of the Rlngsted Incident to Red Cross headquarters, and that an immediate Investigation of the whole affair would be made. Rev. Carlson retained to the city, Wednesday evening. He had not heard of the Rlng- sted incident nntil Informed of it by the local press. He Intends to leave for Washington, C., Monday, to attend the national Red Cross convention. His belief Is that the per ions getting the clothing at Ringsted were not Red Cross workers, but Imposters. Several North Iowa communities, including Ringsted and Swea City, have been stirred to some indignation by two incidents which have come to light in the past few days with regard to the handling of Red Cross relief donations, both clothing and cash, freely offered by good-hearted citizens from this section in answer to the recent flood relief appeal from the Ohio valley First and foremost, is the case of the Gerdis Clemenson family, who live near Ringsted. Just before packing and deliver- m^ Ing a shipment of old" clothes to ed, we did not know there was the Red Cross gathering point in such a thing as the Red Cross 6x- Rlngsted, Evelyn, 12 year-old daughter of the family, Inserted a note in one of the packets, asking that whoever received the clothes, write to her. The family parcel was then sent to collection point in Ringsted. A short time after that, somebody representing themselves as Red Cross officials from a distant point, came through Ringsted and collected the clothes. A few days ago, the Clemensen family received a letter—from Des Moines. The clothes had been purchased at a rummage sale held on Dean St. in Des Moines. Similar Incidents Another similar incident was reported from Swea City, only the c'othing was parceled out somewhere down in Oklahoma, it was learned by a Swea Cityan who received word from the person finally receiving the apparel. Another factor in the dissatisfaction regarding the distribution of Red Cross material collected for flood relief was voiced by a former Swea City woman, now secretary to a minister in Cincinnati. Ohio. She wrote to friends in Swea City to say that "we have been quite disgusted with the National Red Cross. So far as we were concern- sucn « biung no me ncu ^» w> *"» cept for the last two weeks. Our own people did every bit of work without being paid. When all the work was over along came some highly paid officials at the Red Cross who told us what should have been done." Not Local Case Rev. C. Paul Carlson was In Fort Dodge, Wednesday, an'd could not be reached for comment. He was in charge of the Kossuth county drive which raised some $6,000 for the flood sufferers In cash, and also sent somithing like a carload or so of clothes from Kossuth county. Information from other sources however, were that the clothes collected here were sent to St. Louis, as was the money which went to national headquarters. Rev. Carlson was slated to attend the national convention of the Red Cross in Washington, D. C., as a representative of Kossuth county, with all expenses paid, because of his good work in handling the countv campaign. The" somewhat unfortunate developments have left a rather bad taste with many, especially after such unpaid and energetic efforts were expended by dozens of local citizens throughout the county in the interest of humanitarian relief. Closing Schedule For Local Stores The closing committee of the Algona Chamber of Commerce, In a meeting Tuesday morning, decided upon the following closing schedule: . As the patriotic observance of Decoration Day will be in the form of a program and services Sunday, May 30, sponsored by the American Legion, the committee decided there was no need for any general closing of stores on Monday, May Because July 4 also falls on Sunday this year, and too, because the County Fair Association is planning a two-day celebration July 4' and 5, Sunday and Monday, the committee suggested the following for those days: That all stores would close for all day on Monday, July 5, with these exceptions, that the cafes and drug stores remain open the entire day, and,that the groceries remain open until 10:30 a. m. Uien close for the balance of the day. The committee next discussed the matter of closing during Fair Week September 7. 8, 9, and 10, Committeemen attending the meeting included W. V.
