He said the preliminary records on the project were destroyed in a flre at the commission's district office in Britt at a time when calculations for fte final estimates were in the final phase. 4-Year-Old Clawed By Cat BURT — The four-year-old son ol Mr. and Mrs. Richard Johnson of Burt was badly clawed about the head Wednesday afternoon by a stray cat.
