AT.00NA 1.0WA. IIP •" WM#'3ff®K4£- During the years of World War II, Algoria business firms, like others, sent many ( of their younger men and women into service. As a result, business like the farm was often shorthanded during those years. Many of us were unable to give you the service you were accustomed to, but we think you understood our situation. The spirit of the buying public was most cooperative and patient. But today, we in Algona feel that we are entering on a new era. We are again welcoming back those who have been away. Our staff s of employees are increasing; we are again reaching the point where we can do the job better and cjuicker.
