Baluff, Mgr. - Home Phone 152W Strong Since Organizing Only Five Years Ago Dick Pool, office manager and "head salesman" of Algona Electric Company shows Mrs. Chester Willey, Algona, a new Monarch Range. Jess Fandel (left) and Si Roth in front of the ir former location on West Eighth Street, which they occupied until moving to 121 South Dodge two years ago. With only five years of organized business behind them, Harold Roth and Wlllard Fandel have completed a full array 'of electrical contracts, including many buildings of size and importance in this area. .... but we'd better call them Si Roth and Jess Fandel because those are the names most everybody knows them by. These two men, friends since their earlier days in Whittemore, are the organizers and mainstems of their electrical contracting business, Algona Electric, which they started in 1945. The retail trade done at their 121 South Dodge Street headquarters consists mainly in selling Monarch stoves and water heaters besides carrying a complete line of lighting fixtures} Both Si and Jess came to Algona from Whittemore, where they went t o high school. Si took his electrical course at Dunwoody Institute in Minneapolis. Si worked eight years for the city of Al- gona while Jess was in defense work during the war. The electrical contracting done by the firm branches far and wide throughout the state. In the past few years they have done the wiring for St. Ann's hospital here in Algona and are now completing work on hospitals in Greenfield and Winterset. The Cherokee hospital is on their list, too. They contracted for and completed five armories in Iowa, did five schools in Charles City and are now wiring the new Algona High Annex. They wired the Synchroton Building in Ames as well as the Woodward State hospital. Si is the only Poppa of the pair—he has two daughter: (Catherine Ann, 5; and Marion, 8. Si's chief interest outside the electrical business is short-wave radio—and he's known nil around this area as a "ham operator." Jess Fandel's interests outside of work include active participation in the Moose, Eagles and Knights of Columbus. S*MS//lfSS/SSSSS///SS/SSSSS/SSSS.
