The light patrol plane and one of several cars used during the period are shown in the above photo - with Patrolman Charles Bird, Algona, left, and Patrolman Ed Allen, Storm Lake, right, standing near the plane. Allen has been in the patrol three years and has been a flying patrolman for the past year after serving as a regular highway patrolman for two years. He is a former army transport pilot who was a Captain while in the service. Allen serves 23 counties in northwest Iowa and his job makes it necessary to shuttle around constantly.
