Sorenson and Oakland are partners in Algona Plumbing and Heating which is located north of Consumer's at 311V* E. Nebraska and have been since the firm's foundation in 1950. Mrs Oakland acts as their bookkeeper and when she likened their responsibilities to those of a doctor, she referred to winter heating calls. When a furnace fails in the winter, Mrs Oakland points out quick and professional help Is important no matter what time it Is, and professional day or night plumbina and heating service is just what Oakland and Sorenson and their helper Ray Sewick offer at Algona Plumbing and Heating.

Building Needs of all Kinds — LOWER PRICE MAX^BARTHOLOMEW, Manager East State at C & NW Tracks - Algona • ALGONA'S NEW HIGH SCHOOL HOME ECONOMICS ROOM • Over sixteen years of plumbing and heating experience were combined by Oakland and Sorenson when they formed their firm and they have now added seven years more as partners. A sample of the top-notch professional work they do may be seen in this photo of Judy Pickett, Beverly Ringsdorf, and Judy Reinders trying out the equipment in the new home economics room at Algona High School. The classroom features five separate family-type kitchen units with Crane Kitchen Pride steel cabinets and Crane double compartment cast iron sinks all sold and installed by Algona Plumbing and Heating. The wall cabinets are of distinctive Crane design with no handles, opening instead by being pulled at the bottom. Mrs Oakland points out that this not only keeps cabinets clean, but that it keeps them from being chipped and marred in hard use. A special feature of the base cabinets are rotary shelves in each of the corner units. Called Lazy Susans by Crane, they overcome common awkward corner shaped shelves and inconvenient angles. Mrs Charlotte Collier, Home Economics teacher at the high school, comments that the new kitchen will enable the school to change its entire approach in the teaching of home economics in keeping with new educational ideas. In the past the home cooking room was called the Domestic Science Laboratory and girls worked in pairs as they would in a laboratory in what was considered a scientific approach to the kitchen. With the new arrangement of five complete kitchens in the room, class activity will be carried on along the lines of family units and the whole working arrangement for the girls will be placed on a family basis, according to Mrs Collier. Rounding out their plumbing and heating services, Algona Plumbing and Heating offers a wide show-room selection of home fixtures and also Luxjuire furnaces, Kohler, Crane, and Richmond plumbing fixtures, Westinghouse and Chrysler Airtemp air conditioners, hot water heaters (they've already installed 41 here this year), and an electric sewer rooter service. Their phone number is CY 4-4240 and day or night, they are ready to serve you. So. Phillip* St. Cook & Heat with THERMOGAS The Preferred L. P.
