The Upper Bes Moines-Republican, May 20, 1931 PARKING SPACE Curbing Removed and Gra i vel Spread on East State Street Parking. NO LIMIT TO PARKING TIME NOW New Signs to be Erected with No U- Tnrns on State Street Intersections. Mayor Specht and the city council have been trying to work out a plan for more parking space on State street for cars. The curbing has been removed on the two lots east of the Ford garage and the space has been graveled, making room for many cars. The old signs that have been on the elec- troliers noting that sixty minutes Is the time allotted on State street for parking cars, have been removed and at present there is no limit to the time a car can be left in the business section. A new regulation that has on numerous occasions been suggested by the Upper DCS Moines-Rcpubllcan to prohibit U-turns on the State street Intersections will be put into force just ns soon as new signs to that effect arc secured. Street Commissioner Jesse Lashbrook has a crew of men busy repairing the holes in the pavement on Algonn's paved streets, and they appear to be doing a good job.

WATSON AT BODE Son of Pioneer Algona Merchant and First Treasurer of Kossuth County. BORN IN ALGONA 67 YEARS AGO. Had Practiced Medicine at Bode for 35 Years. Buried Beside Ills Parents In Algona. Dr. E. L. Watson, one of the well known young men of early day Algona, died last Wednesday, May 13, at his home in Bode, where he has practiced medicine for the past thirty-six years. Edward Livingston Watson was born in Algona, September 4, 1863, his parents being Mr. and Mrs. H. P. Watson, prominent folks in the social and business life of early Algona. Mr. Watson was one of Algona's first merchants and the Watson home was one of the social centers of those clays. Ed. attended the Algona public school and old Algona College. He later took a course at Lombard University, at Galesburg, Illinois, and Wooster Medical University at Cleveland, Ohio. He took a post graduate course at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Chicago, and began the practice of medicine at Mt. Hope, Ohio. He located at Bode for the practice of his profession in 1896 and remained there since. Dr. Watson was married in 1900 to Mary Jane Smith, an Illinois girl, who survives him. They had no children. Dr. Wafaon was a victim of diabetes and had been in failing health for several years. He was confined to his home for five months before his death and was cared for by his wife and sister, Mrs. Lida Cole of Chicago, who came with the funeral party to Algoua on Friday after holding services at Bode. The burial was in Rivervlew cemetery beside the parents of the dead man.

GOEDERS TALKED TO UKOTACOM. CLUB New Game and Fish Laws Will Prevent Needless Expenditure of Money. LICENSE FEES FOR YEAR OVER $300,000. New Sy.«t<>m Will Save S100.000. Stat' Furnishing Evergreen Seedlings For Windbreaks. North Kossuth Record: Mr. Goeders of Algona. a member of the state fish and game corrtmission gave a talk on conservation before the commercial club Tuesday evening. He reviewed the first meeting of the commission snd told us that the license fees for ihe past years amounted to over $300,000 and how It was spent. New laws passed by the last general assemblv }laced obligations on the department :o take effect in the near future whicn will force the commission to cut down the needless expenditures and make a .•islble showing for the money expended. It is the theory of the new com- nission that in the neighborhood of 5100,000 can be saved from needless xpendltures of the present system and this will be used to reclaim drain- el areas which have not proven successful to agricultural projects and create new reserves. Several small areas could be purchased each year. It would take a whole year's savings or nearly $100.000 to ac- oulre Union Slough so*this project will lave to wait a few years but it is one of the lending projects on the program. This conservation program is not n selfish program from which only the sportsmen will derive a benefit. Our akcs and sloughs were reservoirs to :eep the subsoil of the country saturated and also the surface water had a cooling effect on the atmosphere which caused more rainfall. Thus the whole area is benefittecl. The state is working on a re-forestation project through the farm bureau by furnishing evergi'een seed- ines for a windbreak in every township each year. This in time will sti- nulate tree planting and furnish places of refuge for both game and song birds ind also an abundance of trees which lave a cooling effect on the atmosphere and cause more rainfall. Mr. Betcndorf of Algona accompanied the speaker here and gave a short talk. He explained a new system pf Tapping and seining carp which will :Io away will: the great deal of com- r.ercial seining which is destroying the .•cgctation and a great amount of spawn in our lakes. A resolution was passed by the club o notify our neighboring farm bureaus hut they should feel at liberty to call Gust Riedel Died Suddenly a Week Ago.
