Agent Receives Honor Frank Krall, agent for the Rock Island railroad at Lakota, was honored by company officials recently on completion of 50 years with the railroad. He was presented with a solid gold life pass, good on any Rock Island passenger train, While Krall has reached the usual retirement goal, and is past the 65 years ago, he does not plan to retire. .He was assigned to the station ift Lakota in 1914, when there was a round house there and 28 men were employed. There were three men on duty in the station then, and trains of 125 cars sometime came through. . Robert Percival, -left, and Ronnie Tschelter, shown here, are Algona Boy Scouts who recently returned from a stay at the national jamboree at Valley Forge. The boys are shown-wearing the official jamboree uniform, consisting of shirts, shorts and special red, white and blue neckerchief. The round emblems on the right front of their shirts were specially designed for thqse in attendance at the jamboree, which was attended by 54,000 Boy Scouts from all over the country.

Tin low U nie Tschetter and Robert Percival, have returned from a Boy Scout national jamboree at Valley Forge, site of George Washington's famous camp ground. When asked how they liked the long trip, both chorused, "it was really wonderful — we're glad to have had the opportunity to travel to the jamboree and see all the sights along the way," Ronnie is the son of Mr and Mrs ',Joe Tschetter, and Robert the son of Mr and Mrs Clayton Percival, and the boys have been active in Scouting for several years. The chance to go to the national jamboree at Valley Forge only occurs once every four years, and as far as Bonnie and Robbie are concerned, 1957 has been a perfect year for them. The boys left by bus with many other Scouts from the midwest from Fort Dodge July 5, following a couple of days of indoctrination. Heading east from Fort Dodge, the bus took the boys to many exciting historic points of interest before coming to a halt at Valley Forge. , After a stay the first night at Glenview Naval Air Station in north Chicago, the bus traveled to the Henry Ford Museum at Dearborn, Mich,, through Canada to Niagara Falls, West Point, New York City, where many famous sights were seen, and then on to Washington, D. C. A tour of the nation's capital city seemed far tob short, according to Ronnie and Robbie, but many of that city's famous landmarks were visited before hitting the road again for Mount Vernon and Valley Forge. A total of 54,000 Boy Scouts were encamped at Valley Forge; A side trip to Philadelphia, where the boys"- watched the Phillies and Cincinnati Reds battle, was followed toy a visit to the camp by Otto Graham, former quarterback of the Cleveland Browns, Fred Waring, famous glee club and orchestra leader, and Walter O'Keefe, who wrote the song, 'The Man on the Fly* ing Trapeze." Before heading back to Iowa, the boys visited Atlantic City. Outstanding stop on the way home was the Museum of Science and Industry .at Chicago. They were m*t.jrtjeit &#«> by parents _ft tHe e&d of ifer ' It was the first extended trip for each of the boys, Ronnie says he "especially liked the historical sites visited along the way," while Robbie "was most impressed by Washington, D. C." Each boy highly recommended the national jamboree and will undoubtedly be questioned by Scouts here about the tour when the next one leaves in 1961.

H Funeral Houm of Ate wi«* * Taft birth i Reconstruction ill Take 4 To 6 Months A long-awaited reconstruction job on the electrical transmission lines of the Algona Municipal Utilities was underway her,e this week. The project which went by bid to .the North Central Tree Service of Storm Lake for $119,844.75, calls for construction of whole new sections of distribution lines, and partial reconstruction .of oljher existing lines. It also includes removal of »mall portions and other minor ' modifications of the existing lines, and the job will affect all areas of the city. First scene of work was in tho alleys just south of State Street, Jim Palmer, municipal utilities superintendent said. Lines Outdated ___ ^ During the past years, Algona'i growth and development, has been such that the older transmission lines either could not take thA increasing load or were so constructed in relation to the source of power that a line loss resulted in ^transmission. . In the east part of Algonp, where a steady increase, in construction of new homes has taken place, the' demand for power has far exceeded the lines available. Now work will be done that will enable the utilities to stay ahead of the growing demand for power from all sections of Algona. . The entire job will take from four to 'six months, according to a, representative of Buell & iWnters, Sioux City,' which firm is supervising the engineering.. I. A. Genti/yi heao>of the Storm Lake contracting firm doing the work . f ' ' « , Possible Interruption* ,...•. Sup^. Palmer -said that there might be brief interruptions in services during the! final stages of 'the conversion, but every effort will be made to give due notice 'to the public,; The project calls for considerable coordination of activities between the utilities, the public, and the Northwestern Bell Telephone Co, which also has numerous lines adjacent to the power lines, and some of which have to also be altered as work progresses. (> When Algona's power lines were originally constructed, the main business section was in a centrally located area downtown, and there was comparatively little "juice" used in .manufacturing, nor were there the many extra appliances now being serviced, such as air conditioners. As industrial expansion has taken place, the business area has spread out, and new homes with new appliances have sprung up, the older lines came to the end of their usefulness and capacity. The municipal utilities board of trustees have been looking ahead to this project for a considerable time, and adequate reserves have been set up to finance the project, In the 16ng run it will mean the municipal plant will be able to get more actual electricity to the user, with less line loss end resulting lower cost of pro'duc* tion per kilowatt. ; Bill Barry Home From Hospital Bill Barry, Sr., who had been at St. Ann hospital since Mon» day, July 15, was released Ffi« " day, July 36, and is now con. valescing at the Barry home at 2-21 north Wooster st, He is getting along fine since amputatipn pf his left leg, and has been receiving visits from many persons since his hospital release.
