Corwith-Wesley Area To Vote On $210,000 Bonds Voters in the Corwith-Wesley Community School District will go to the polls, located in the fire station at Wesley and the library at Corwith, Wednesday, August 18, to vote on a $210,000 bond issue for additions to schools in both towns. In addition, voters will decide if another $45,000 in school house funds, already available, may be used for the projects. The Wesley addition, according to preliminary plans, will be 900 square feet in area and will contain seven class rooms, a large 44 x 34 elementary library, including two conference rooms and librarian office, offices and teachers' work area, adequate facilities for the hot lunch program, furnace room and storage area for the janitor. The proposed addition would increase the total building and facilities at Wesley, where an old building burned down several months ago, to an elementary school of nine class roomsj library, gymnasium and complete hot lunch program. The one-story addition would be built in the same general area which the old building formerly covered, except that it would extend further in all directions, but north, where the existing facilities are located. At Corwith, where the district's high school is located, additions would include a shop area to provide adequate space for maintenance and repair of school buses, teaching facilities for technical instruction in auto mechanics and a wood finish room; band and vocal room to accomodate a 70 piece band and chorus of 50 voices, plus two practice rooms, storage areas, music office and offices for the superintendent, secretary and conference room for board meetings. Destruction by fire of the old building at Wesley made it necessary for some sort of action on a school there as the remaining portion of the building included the gym and a few classrooms, built many years after the original high school. 2-Car Crash The Algona police department investigated a two-car accident Monday at 5:22 p. m. involving two passenger cars at the intersection of Jones and Nebraska streets. Florence M, Harris, 31, Algona, was driving east on Nebraska in a 1959 Ford station wagon. Five children in the car, as well as Mrs. Harris, escaped injuries when she collided with a car driven by Richard J. Allen, 38, Algona, proceeding south on Jones in a 1958 Mercury. Damages to the left front of the Harris car were estimated at $90 and to the right rear of the Allen car at $175. Allen was charged with failure to yield the right-of-way.
