The annual Girl Scout fund Cecil S. Koepke " C E C " Standing atop No. 5 diesel generating engine at the Algona power plant, Cecil Koepke, assistant operator looks down from about 12 feet above the floor — in the photo above. He is shown assisting in the fuel change-over lor this engine, second largest in the plant. , Of the five huge engines in the Algona Municipal Utilities power plant, two are generally held in 'reserve 1 . More and more, however, four engines in operation are required at times, to meet the growing peak load. From grape pop to electricity may seem quite a leap, but Cec Koepke made it. Now in his 3rd year of service with Algona Municipal Utilities, Cecil put in 18 years with Algona Hottling Works, before joining AMU. He is a World War II veteran of 3 years with the Air Force, and spent two of those years overseas in the Pacific theatre as a radio operator. Married to the former Mildred Molamphy, a West Bend girl, Cec has two daughters, 18 and 16 years of age. The family resides at 202 East Elm in Algona. How Many Ways Do You Use It? Make a quick guess as to how many 'electrical servants' you have in your home. Chances are you'll guess way low. Ves, you are using more electricity — at a lower rate from AMU.
