L. Gunder in a series called '"Meet Your Neighbor". Mr. Gunder is the educational director for the Jos. Weiden- hoff Co. Inc. Both Mr. and Mrs. Gunder were born on Story county farms near Ames. They were educated in Iowa altho they came to Algona from Chicago. The Gunders have two daughters. Algona Bulldogs defeated; Webster City 24-7, Gary.=Waldron set the pace when he scooted 63 yards for a touchdown in the opening minutes. Chuck Crapser scored the second touchdown on a pass from Cliff Skogstrom, after Skog- strom had realed off a long run and carried the ball into scoring position. From this point on it was a Bulldog victory. Coach Gene Hertz boys have a chance to turn in the best local football record in years. W. C. Dewel writes of the growth of Algona in an interesting column in this weeks Advance "One night (1920) 47 years ago there was a sound of revelry in Algona; perfectly decorous revelry, for with tine aid of invited groups from other county towns the formal opening of the brand new Durdall hotel was being celebrated. (This is the present Algona Hotel of- today). This event symbolized one of the periods of Algona's growth. The town had increased by 424 in the preceding five years, and a mild business and housing boom was in progress. In the census of 1900 Algona's population was 2911.In the 190040 period the population grew to 3880 and if, it seems possible the 1950 census shows at least equal gain the population should be around 5800, or double that of 1900. State and national figures show only three periods of population recession in Algona's history. .The, panic,of 1857 and the Civil ; War were doubtless re- f'sp^onistble in' the main for that" recession. Algona has had contrasting periods of industrial and housing stagnation and booms, though on the whole there has been steady growth from the earliest settlement 93 years ago to the bustling small city of the present. (1947) Some of the not to be forgotten well established indus tries here in 1900 were the Spurbeck-Lambert bu.titeirlt.ub factory (located across the tracks from the C. & N. W. depot) and the Nicoulin dray factory, the old grist mill near the present "Rainbow" bridge and near the same neighbor hood was a brick factory. A few other interesting facts of the 1900's. . .the Methodist Church was built then and the Algona Public library oaime later. In 1912 the first paving was laid and the present creamery was built. The Swift building (where Taylor Motor is located) where the payroll for 60 employees is now $73,000 and the total business 1910 _. 1915 1920 „ 1925 .
