State Historical Sooittf Iowa city; la. fir Run Wallet »• * * That eld laying — ".hooting for the moon" — begins to take on a new and more realistic meaning. * » * Jud Si. John, local agent for the Railway Express, has one of those automatic telephones which records your conversation if you call while he is out of the express office. When he opened the office Monday morning, he found that he had received eight calls according to the tabulation made by the automatic phone, so he switched on the playback ... came the message .— "this is Sputnik, Sputnik calling, beep, beep, beep, stand by. this is Sputnik." Jud doesn't know who the jokers were, but says he has a good idea. * * » Between halves ai the Drake- Iowa State football game in Des Moines last Saturday, special honors were paid to Drake stars of old, and teams that made exceptionally good records.. .and lo, one of those honored most highly, was Herb Hedlund, now manager of the Pioneer seed corn plant here. Herb captained the Drake team in 1938. * * * Dean Barnes says thai while driving down a road the other day he noticed a farmer trying to clean put his corn picker while running. This dangerous procedure resulted in Dean coming up with some vital statistics. The snapping rolls, husking rolls, gathering chains, etc. travel at the rate of 5 to 7 feet per second. If you get your hand in the machine and your reaction time, is one-half of a second, you will be in the machine from 2^ to 3M> feet before you can react to pull out. * * * The real football fan is the mother who can convince herself that a few cleat marks on the face improve the looks of her boy. * * •• ' How one lone statistician in the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, by use of charts and common reasoning, brought to justice a man who had cashed' 261 bogus checks in 37 counties in Minnesota, and 29 in Iowa (including KossutH), is an interesting story. Most checks were cashed at implement firms, automotive supply house, hardware stores and filling stations, and all were under $50. A map was drawn, with dots placed at every point where a bad check had turned up. Assuming the forger traveled in all directions to do his business and that his residence had not changed, attempts were made to determine the unknown forger's home. A line was drawn, north and south and east and west, so that an equal number of cforgeries were on each side and quarter of where the lines intersected. The north - south line, incidentally, went right through Algona. Then it was discovered that in the area where the lines intersected no forgeries had occurred. This was in the northern part of Blue Earth county, Minn., directly south of Kasota, Minn. A composite description of the man had been obtained from the victims. Investigators went to the Kasota area; they felt someone connected with farming was cashing the checks. They soon heard of a man who answered the description, and who lived quietly on a 40«acre farm. He appeared to have an income in excess of what you would expect from 40 acres.

Full Ownership, Livingston Tool, To 0. B. Harmes A major business transaction, in which interests changed hands in two manufacturing firms, one in Algona and, the other in Phoenix, Ariz., was announced here this' week. " " ' " ••"•--' •". Under terms of .the transaction, O. B. (Burt) Harmes 'becomes sole owner of Livingston Tool Co. in Algona, while Chas. L. Livingston assumes ownership of Livingston Irrigation Corp., Phoenix. _The two men have be<fn partners in both firms for a number of years, Harmes becoming a member of .the Livingston Tool firm after coming here in 1948. The Arizona corporation came into being a number of years ago as the result of invention by the two men of new-type irrigation ditch valves and gates, which sold throughout the Southwest. Charlie Livingston, who also has an interest in Buckeye Mfg. Co., a separate Phoenix firm manufacturing tools and dies and Western metal novelties, wiU continue to maintain a residence in Algona, and will assist Harmes in an advisory capacity. Livingston Tool was founded here by Livingston and his son, Francis, and occupied the building now housing Algona Machine Shop on West State street, until the need for larger quarters resulted in purchase of the present plant on highway 18. Livingston Tool manufactures the Super-Speed line, now embracing some 300 separate tools for maintenance of pipe-lines in the food and dairy industry, and also special wrenches for large valve companies. Burt Harmes, coming hero in 1948, purchased the interest of Francis Livingston in 5 the firm in 1950. Harmes iearned the machinist's trade while serving in the U. S. Navy from 1937 to 1941, and following discharge worked at Glenn L, Martin Aircraft in Omaha and Baltimore. Leaving Martin, Harmes entered into partnership in a machine tool business in Osakis, Minn. — Withers-Harmes Mfg. Co. — and remained there until coming to Algona,. to join Livingston. Besides Harmes, Livingston Tool Co. here has Gene Furst as iccountant, and Bob Scott, Haran Pomge, Sylvester Hayes, Frank Duerr, and Roy Vander- loff as machine tool craftsmen. Whiffemore, Muckey Win By Write-ins Algona's incumbent mayor, Dr. C. C. Shierk, was elected to a second two-year term by Algona voters Tuesday during an election which saw voters vote for annexation of 160 acres of land at the southeast corner of the city limits by a margin of 609-535. Mayor Shierk built up a substantial lead in all four wards to win the mayor race from Frank Vera, 815-381. Roy Hutzell, candidate for the mayor post two years ago and former councilman, received four write-in votes. The mayor race at a glance, by wards: Shierk Vera First 136 52 Second 362 136 Third 194 129 Fourth 123 64 The, annexation issue was settled by a top-heavy vote for the proposition in the second ward, as shown below: For ' Against First 88 93 Second ..291 189 Third 140 168 Fourth 90 85 Two ndw councilmen were also elected. They are Stanley Muckey, who took the post in first ward with 59 votes, and James Whittemore, named in second ward with 110 votes. Both were write-ins. Arnold Elbert, third ward incumbent, and John Dreesman, fourth ward incumbent, won without opposition in their respective. wards, and Vic Parson and Byron Richardson, cbuncilmen-at-large, also were re-elected. Total vote at the four polling places was 1226, with 30 ballots spoiled. "., ^ands Bunting, unopj SjpiB^eommlssloner,warsT Probably the most intefestiftg angle to the entire election, with the exception of the actual outcome .of balloting, was the fact that in the second ward no less than 30 persons received votes for the council post. Leon Laird, present councilman from that ward, who was not a candidate, got 15 votes to place as runner- up to Whittemore, while Muckey, the write-in candidate in first ward, was backed by 12 persons in second ward to represent them on the council. Therefore, he wound up third in the wrong ward. There .were also quite a few other one-vote write-ins in practically every ward in town.
