Inspect Algona For Barberry Employees of the Iowa and United States Department of Agriculture are inspecting all shrubbery in Algona for the presence of barberry bushes which spread stejn rust to small grains. Rust spreading barberry bushes are being destroyed in Iowa and 18 other states in a cooperative effort between the states and the federal government to eradicate the shrub. The inspectors Hammon, Larson and Lippie expect to be working in Algona this week or more. They will make their inspection block by block throughout the city. Rust spreading barberry bushes 'are restricted by law and must be destroyed. There are many kinds of barberry, some are rust spreaders and others are not. The inspectors are trained to identify the rust spreading varieties. The common barberry and the hybrid red leaf are the two types which spread rust that are most generally found in Iowa. Anyone knowing of any rust spreading variety of barberry may report them to the inspectors through the County Extension Director, Dean Barnes' office. Correction Pallbearers for the P. W. Hansen funeral, held Thursday, Aug. 1, were Harold Hunt, Tony Wagner, Roy Stoffel, John Kutschara, .Ralph Yanser and Benny Leeck. Earth is the third planet in order of distance from the sun.
