New Subscription Rates Effective September 1,1943 The Algona newspapers have for some years carried the lowest subscription price of any papers of their size in this part of the country. Many of the smaller town newspapers which -use ready-print are at the present time charging more than the Algona papers. For some years now we have given our readers a semi-weekly service with a Tuesday and Thursday paper at a reduced combination rate. Now operating costs have increased to a considerable degree and advertising revenue has decreased due to war conditions. This situation makes an adjustment in the subscription price necessary. 1 • ,.• '•' •. *** Beginning September I, 1943, the subscription rates of the Algona Upper Des Moines and the Kossuth County Advance will be as listed below.
