The name of the program is People to People It's all live: there is no film. Tonight we are going to visit the home of Harlan J. Sigsbee, plumber, fireman and fisherman. He and his wife. Grace, whose column, Woman's World is syndicated from coast to coast in one newspaper, live in this palatial residence at 209 S. Williams in Algona, Iowa.
