Tuesday, July 13, 1943 -- Boom in Bettendorf Dog Population? It May Just Be Notices
City Clerk Walter J. Bleuer's records indicate a boom in the dog population of Bettendorf.

There have been 155 licensed this year by comparison with 65 a year ago. The fee is $1 for males and spayed females, and $2 for females.
