A torrid last quarter gave -Algona high its fifth victory in six conference starts, last Friday night at Iowa Falls, by a score of 36 to 30. The game gave the Bulldogs undisputed possession of second place in North Central confer-' ence standings, and took the local quint over one of its toughest assignments with flying colors.

Which is our way of saying that hree business projects, all of hem resulting in construction of lew buildings, are going to fur- her the business section f this bustling part of Algona. Shown above are these new mits/either constructed, or in the process of construction. At the left is a view from Phillips St., of the new Harms All-, pas Co., propane gas plant: This $45,000 project was recently completed. The building shown at the left contains the filling manifolds, cylinder testing and repair dept. as well as cylinder storage. Ihe middle picture shows the 18,000 gal. storage tank. The small building contains two pumps evacuating pump for unloading tank, cars, and-one for cylinder •filling. Glenn Harms is plant manager, Herman Waller is retail- manager, and June Stevens is bookkeeper. In the picture at the right are shoWn two new buildings on the west side of Phillips. The one at thcf left is the new general auto repair building now occupied bv Merle Wellendorf. It is 34x50 in kite, with one-third of the area having a basement. The new building is next door to the frame structure formerly occupied by Merle, before and after the war until the new building was completed. During the war he just closed, the place up and served in the navy. • Dwaytte Jensen, another up- and-coming young Algona man, is building the structure shown at the right of Wellendorfs garage. It,is 50x61 in-size, and will be a warehouse and office for the 7-Up distribution business operated by Dwaync in this area. He's been at it for a number of years, but has been handicapped by space requirements, which will be solved when he is able to occupy the hew building, which should be shortly. It has special loading facilities in the center; of the building, and also an unloading ramp along the north side of the building.
