Creamery for 20 years, served as chief of the fire department for several years, and served in the armed forces during World War II. He was united in marriage to ncrease a r Better share of state money would be goal The possibility of. a census of Algona population came under consideration Wednesday when Mayor Bill Finn said the matter would be taken up' at the regular semi-monthly city council meeting Wednesday night. Several towns, including Humboldt and Ft. Dodge, have taken a census recently in the attempt to get • larger share of state moneys by virtue of en increased population. All towns in Iowa that haven't taken a census since 1960, which includes almost all of the communities, are paid on a basis of their 1960 figures. Algona's population was listed as 5,702 at that time. APPROXIMATELY $10.05 is paid to the City of Algona for each resident by the State of Iowa. Of this figure, about $9.05 comes from the road use fund and the other $1 from the state liquor tax profits. —Thus for. ^eachc-one- person increase in population over the 1960 figure, Algona would get $10.05 each year (3 years) until the next census in 1970. This three-year figure of $30.15 per person in increased population is the major reason some towns are conducting censuses at this time. Humboldt showed an increased of over 400 (see story below) and will 'get an increased $12,000-plus 'over the next few years. It is figured that the census for Algona would cost about $1500 judging from • $1200 figure for Humboldt with a population somewhat less than Algona's. Thus Algona would need only a 50-person increase in its population to "break even" and every person more than that with Elsie Kuchenreuther on [ figure would give the town October 15, 1937. She survives as do a son Dennis of Frost, Minn, and a daughter Sandra at home; two sisters, Mrs. Ray Welp (Minnie) of Titonka, and Mrs. Claus Daniels (Lena) of Clear Lake; a brother Amos Jr. of Titonka. Preceding him in death were his parents, and two brothers. Casket bearers were Arthur Peterson, Elmer Peterson, Harley Brandt, Phil Jaren, John Rike and J. L. Intel-mill. Honorary pallbearers were members of the fire department. Injured when car hits ditch Terry Christensen, 21, Whittemore creamery employee, was taken to St. Ann hospital early Sunday morning after his car was wrecked when it went in a ditch one and a halt' miles east of the Standard Station near Whittemore on Hwy. 18. It was thought he went to sleep at the wheel. He had head lacerations and was released from the hospital the same afternoon.

HUMBOLDT SHOWS INCREASE OF 434 Two towns south of Algona, Humboldt and Fort Dodge, have recently completed their own census and both show population gains over the 1960 figure.
