One of the first farmers to join the Allen County Soil Conservation District was Harold Swanson, Elsmore, who received a Kansas State Bankers award this year for his achievements. The award was won jointly by him and his son, J. Edward Swanson, who own adjoining farms and operate a total of 720 acres. Both are dedicated SCS converts. 


The governing body  of Iola accepted the offer of the Southwestern Bell Telephone Company to sell its lot on North Oak for $950. The new water tower will be placed there.
