Ten Years of Service Twice-a- By Your Algona Ten Years Ago this Month Algona papers Made a Forward Step INSTEAD OF TWO PAPERS ON ONE DAY (THURSDAY) THE ALGONA NEWSPAPERS OF- FERED A TUESDAY AND A THURSDAY PAPER The "Algona Plan 11 We adopted what has become known as the "Algona Plan." The papers alternate taking the Tuesday arid the Thursday editions annually. News is different in each paper—-no duplication—hence you are offered twice-a-week news service, as well as advertising news by Algona merchants. Wary newspapermen over the nation, accustomed to the, old time continual fighting between editors, had their tongues in their cheeks, and said, "Wait a year and see the explosion." They have waited ten years, some of them but the "Algona Plan" still works for the benefit of Algona. And from Maine to California and from Canada to the Gulf the "Algona Plan" for cooperation between two newspapers has been adopted by forward looking two-paper-town newspapermen. We are proud of the "Algona Plan." The management of each Algona newspaper knows how and why it works. We are glad we thought of it—not because of personal pride—BUT BECAUSE IT HAS MEANT A BETTER ALGONA. Towns are judged by their newspapers. Algona has two of the best newspapers in Iowa, a newspaper "hot spot" of the nation. That means to outsiders that Algona is a good town —because a good town supports and develops a good newspaper. What of lli Your Paper Is Your Seat In the Grandstand No one in Algona is more certain of a prosperous future for Algona and trade territory than your Algona newspaperman. Here is the heart of the country—the best there is. It is a great market, and in itself creates products demanded by the world. • • f . '••'••' It is up, to Algona businessmen to develop this market—to bring to the public the newest and best there is—AND WE KNOW THE AIXION A 'BUSINESSMAN DOES JUST THAT, for the simple reason THAT HE HAS ALWAYS DONE SO. , , . . • ' And the Algona businessman knows he can reach twice-a-week more than 4000 homes (20,000 people at the state average of 5 persons to a home) through the Algona newspapers. THAT'S ALSO WHY "WANT" ADVERTISEMENTS IN THE TWO ALGONA PAPERS GET RESULTS. We're looking ahead with pleasure to the next ten years—ten years of peace— ten years of building bigger and better newspapers for a bigger and better Algona. . ^ People Want the Algona Newspapers An average of 250 people Tuesday and another 250 Thursday purchase single copies at the Algona News Stand, that's the best recommendation ( for a newspaper—-IT'S WANTED, And each paper sends sonie 4000 apiece each week to subscribers who pay by the year, IT'S WANTED, And it'i READ, That's'wby it pays to advertise in Algona JNewspapers.
