Gambles Store Here Has Aldens Catalog Center The Gamble store has been appointed as a catalog order center for Aldens Catalog Service, according to Norm Christian, manager of the Algona store. Aldens, the fourth largest mail order firm in the United States which has for 76 years supplied customers in this area with high quality merchandise at money-saving catalog prices, will make available its full selection of merchandise from its beautiful 954 page catalog at the local store. According to Mr. Christian, the new catalog service will provide his customers with a wider selection of goods and will save customers' time and effort. Simplified ordering, both in the store or by telephone, will be a distinct advantage in this new service. "My customers", he stated, "will be able to choose any item from the catalog in the store or may order by telephone from their homes." Liberal credit terms will be available to permit customers to charge items purchased. Reflecting Us continued leadership in the catalog industry, the Aldens current Fall and Winter catalog is the largest ever produced and contains the highest number of pages in full color in the company's history. Aldens had its genesis in an extremely modest mail order business established in 1889. A five-man staff filled orders from a loft at Chicago. The company grew quickly. Today the company ships merchandise nationally from four warehouses in Chicago and is the fourth largest catalog order company in the country. Although all of Aldens original sales were for cash, the company extended credit facilities starting in 1937. Today, catalog sales made on a credit basis account for more than 50 per cent of the total' sales. Full credit terms, including extended time payment credit, will be available to customers here. Mr. Christian invites all of his customers to inspect the new catalog and try this new service and states that he is prepared to accept catalog orders immediately for prompt delivery. -30- Mrs. Anna Engel, 101, Tama county's oldest resident, passed away Oct. 6.

Up Federal Land Scholarships The two Federal Land Bank Scholarships which will be awarded to Iowa farm boys for the 1966-67 college year have been increased to $500 each, according to E. H. Hutchins, manager of the Federal Land Bank Association at Algona. Hutchins said the increased amount of each grant reflects the generally rising costs of a college education. The scholarships are for high school senior boys who are planning to begin study next fall at the Iowa State University college of agriculture, he said. Funds are provided by the 36 Federal Land Bank Associations in Iowa and the Federal Land Bank of Omaha. Winners, however, are selected by the college. Applications are available at the Algona Federal Land Bank Association office, south of Penney's, or from vocational agriculture instructors and extension directors and high school superintendents. The deadline for filing applications is March 1, 1966. Applications should be submitted to the Dean of Agriculture, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa.
