International Harvester Husband Said 'You're Fooling!' Had To Call Up Gas Company The lucky "Treasure Chest Key", one of those secured at the recent Algona Home Show at the display of North Central Public Service Co., was held by Mrs Allen Wagner, 120 West College St., Algona, it has been revealed by Dick Carr, manager of the gas utilities firm. The "lucky key" brought a new 1957 Universal Gas Range to the Wagner home, where it is at present doing full duty, under the hand of Mrs Wagner, in preparing daily meals for the family. Mrs Wagner said she's "never won anything before in her life, and I'm so happy because I've wanted a range just like this one for so long. Then to think I WON IT!" Mrs Wagner, the lucky key holder, is the wife of Allen Wagner who purchased the Cities Service Station at State and Phillips street last fall. The Wagners have four attractive little daughters. THE HAPPY WAGNER FAMILY Shown above, at the time the 1957 Universal 30-Inch Gas Range was presented to them free at North Central Public Service Co., Algona, is the Wagner family. With beaming smiles in rear of the range are Dad and Mom. Janice, 9, and Nancy, 6, are at left, and Sharon, 7, and little Patty, 3, are at the right of the new gas range. The whole family just had to be present when Mrs Wagner was presented with the new gas range. Gas Range Installed Monday; "Cooks Just Swell 7 , Says Mrs Wagner The new Universal gas range won by Mrs Wagner was installed by company men in the family home at 120 West College last Monday morning. "My old stove, which we got shortly after World War II, was pretty obsolete," says Mrs Wagner, "and I had been dreaming of a range like this." It didn't take her long to put the new range to use —• Mrs.Wagner has feted the family with baked ham, a delicious cake, other goodies, and such staple meal items as chili con carne, baked potatoes, etc., all of which she says her new Universal Gas Range cooks to perfection. . „.,,,,,'. , . • A Thrill To Four Little Girls, Too What gift would four little girls rather have for their Mother than a new gas range! The four Wagner daughters shared their Mom's and Dad's thrill over the North Central Public Service Co. gift, and according to rumor, they're cleaning up their plates better than ever. Tuesday evening, for supper, Janice, 9, prepared the coffee on the range . . . and it was pronounced "perfect" by her parents. Nancy, Sharon, and Patty are intrigued by all the "fancy equipment" on the range, and Mrs Wagner says she hopes the little girls will soon tire of pushing buttons that turn on lights all over the range. "I Was Simply Flabbergasted" "'We went to the Algona Home Show on Sunday evening," said Mrs Wagner. "Naturally, I made sure I got my key at the North Central display, because that's a "range I've wanted.", < "I was doing some book-keeping at the station a. few days later, when a gas company driver came in, and I was then reminded of my Treasure Chest Key at home. The driver said nobody had yet opened the lock, so I scurried home, got my key, and went down, I was a little nervous trying it on ttye lock, and Cec McGinnis said for me to take my time. When the lock snapped open — well, I just-stood there, it didn't seem real!" "I went back to the station and told my husband I had won the gas range. He said, You're fooling! He wouldn't belive it, and called up the gas 'company. He had been kidding me about my 'key' — but tie didn't kid me any more!" , . "We certainly want to express thanks to Nprth Central Public Service Co.," said Mrs Wagner. "This new Universal gas range at our home is like a dream come true." • Choose ANY SIZE "Universal" Gas Range '"'''''"'"MMWMW^^^ For Your OLD RANGE (GAS - ELECTRIC - COAL • WOOD) REGARDLESS OF AGE, MAKE OR CONDITION ^^^ On Your Choice Of AfNew 1957 Model UNIVERSAL GAS RANGE YES!
