I. Severson, game area manager for northwest Iowa, will be the instructor at the school. I have, and I had these pictures taken and am pay- Ing for this ad to tell others just yvhat is going on. In the upper photo you will see a manhole along highway 18 near the Acreage Motel, put in by the City of Algona. It was intended to drain off surplus water ojlong the highway's edge, into 'the manhole, and through a 4 inch tile under the highway to the north side of the road. The only trouble is that the tile has been clogged for from 10 to 20 years, and no water at all goes through the drain. Now the State of Iowa enters the piety re. The hole in front of the manhole is for a nice, new big drain WHICH IS TO DRAIN INTO THE SAME 4-INCH CLOGGED TILE. The new State drains are 8>inch or larger and drain into a 4-Inch tile. I have no idea how much this Is costing the taxpayers. I do know that I have told State Highway Engineers that the tile they propose to drain into is a pri> vote tile, and THAT IT IS CLOGGED AND WILL CARRY OFF NO WATER. It makes ne difference; in go the drains. I suggest that instead ef sending engineers to Ames we tend them back to kindergarten. H. D.
