Fireman Have Annual Picnic Algona's firemen host their families (wives and children lots of them) each summer at an annual picnic at Call State Park here, After the large group had finished eating 160 hot dogs and all the trimmings, salad, beans, etc., all the children hopped aboard the city's newest fire engine for a tour around the park. Firemen Don Meyer and Bob Laing each wheeled the big rig with a full load of kids riding on top of the truck over the park's roads, while several other firemen rode "shotgun" to keep youngsters from falling off the sides and back. A total of 21 firemen and their families were present. Ther* are 25 firemen in the department.

The Draft Call Increase How It Affects lowans Col. Glenn R. Bowles, state director of Selective Service, issued this statement Thursday in connection with President Johnson's call for doubling the draft: "The average age of induction today approximates 21 years. This summer we found it necessary to induct a number of 20-year-old registrants in order to fill our monthly calls. It is difficult to determine the age group we will be inducting should the induction calls continue to increase. Induction of the 18 year old is quite remote in view of the manpower available in the six selection groups (listed below) unless an emergency would become imminent. Class 1-A Registrants "Registrants selected for induction come from the Class 1-A group who are not found eligible for deferment by their local board. Within Class 1-A registrants are six selection groups according to age and marital status. At the present time registrants in selection groups one through three are being inducted. "If the available manpower in groups one through three should diminish we would then commence inducting young men from selection group four, and only after exhausting the available manpower in this group would inductions be made in the next lower selection group, etc. "Selection group one consists of those registrants, 19 years of age and older, who have been declared delinquent by their local board for failure to comply with Selective Service Regulations. "Selection group two is composed of registrants under 26 years of age who volunteer for induction into the Armed Services. "Selection group three provides our primary source of manpower for induction. This group is comprised of non- volunteers between the ages of 19 and 26 and who do not have a wife with whom they maintain a bona fide family relationship in their homes. "Selection group four includes non-volunteers non-fathers between the ages of 19 and 26 who have a wife with whom they maintain a bona fide family relationship in their homes. Inductions from this group would be by selection of the oldest first. Youngest First "Selection group five is comprised of non-volunteers between the ages of 26 and 35. If this group were reached for induction, the youngest would be selected first. "Selection group six is comprised of non-volunteers who are 18V4 years of age and under 19. Selection for induction would be the oldest first. "A question as to how soon will a young man found qualified through pre-induction examination be ordered to report for induction is difficult to answer. This cannot be accurately determined for many reasons, but the public should be apprized that the registrant cannot be inducted less than 21 days after he has been mailed his Statement of Acceptability. "Thi$ Statement of Acceptability is mailed by (be local board clerk after the registrant's physical examination has been administratively processed at the Armed Forces Examining Station. A congressional act will be required before men classified V-A, who are over the age of liability for military service, are called to serve their country."

CO-OPERATIVES Lift Your Buying Pdwer The "profits" of a co-operative are paid out as refunds to customers. As a result, two things happen: The customers benefit in proportion to the amount of business they have done with the co-operative; and the whole community benefits because this money is not drained away. It stays in the community to lift everybody's buying power. WEST BEND ELEVATOR CO. ........... R, W. Jurgens, Mgr. TITONKA CO-OP ELEVATOR .............. Jack Stott, Mgr.
