Algono (lo.) Upptr D«« MotftM Tuetdoy, Nov«mb«r J, 1965 Bleich Leads Bears To Swea City And L-Cenfral Tie Fenton Couple's Son Works On Water Pollution 19-18 Upset In Finale in Finale ^B ~ _ * i • Garrigan's upset-minded Golden Dears ran headlong into a burly LeMars Gehlen team in the season finale before a large crowd here Friday night, and duo to the heroics of seniors (who were playing their final game) and underclassmen alike, turned in a very surprising 1918 victory. Dick Bleich, senior 155 Ib. halfback, led the Bears to the win, which resulted in an impromptu ride to the center of the field for Coach Beanie Cooper when the anxiously-awaited final buzzer sounded. The win allowed the locals to post a 3-4-1 season mark, a record that was pulled under the .500 mark only by injuries during the campaign. Seldom have local fans seen a more terrific performance than Bleich's. He was dropped for losses six times during the fray by the hard-charging Jays, but when the chips were down and the long gain was needed, Dick got it. His flashy runs set up two scores - and he got the third himself on a twisting 38-yard jaunt. Bleich had to be great - as Gehlen sent Bill Groetken hurtling into the Garrigan defense 26 times, and he wound up with 188 yards for a 7.2 average. And he counted all of the Le- Mars team's points, going 55, six and one yard for TDs. Inability of the visitors to get any extra points cost them the game. Garrigan, a team that didn't get a lot of breaks during the season, used two in the first quarter to forge a 12-0 bulge. Both were fumbles by the invaders, the first recovered by Dave McCarthy on the Garrigan 33-yard line. It took the Bears 11 plays to cover the 67 yards to paydirt. Bleich and Denny Hudspeth got short yardage and Don Potthoff, another standout for the locals, hooked a Bill Milder pass for nine yards as the Bears got to the Gehlen 47. Bleich then grabbed a flare pass and skipped 36 yards to the 11. Hudspeth then smashed for three and Bleich one before Milder fired a pass into the corner which Potthoff speared with one hand for six points. Bill Reding's placekick attempt for the extra point was blocked. Garrigan had a shot at another TD after the ensuing kickoff when John Britton of the Jays fumbled on the Gehlen 40 and Bob Koppen recovered. In just two plays, Garrigan had another six- pointer. Bleich went two, then outran the Jays into the end zone - and it was 12-0 with nine minutes gone in the period. A fumble on the point after snap resulted In no attempt. The visitors recovered - fast I Starting from their own 20, Groetken and Co. got to the Garrigan 38 by the end of the quarter. Groetken powered to the six on the first play of the second round and slammed into the end zone on the next to make it 12-6. Groetken attempted a placekick for the extra point, but the eager Bears blocked it. About midway through the stanza, Groetken put the Bears in a deep hole with a beautiful high punt that rolled dead on the home club's four yard line. The kick traveled 45 yards from the line of scrimmage - and a good Garrigan punt followed when the Bears failed to make a first down - but Groetken fielded it on the GHS 48 and wheeled to the 27 before being nailed. It took eight plays for the Jays to score, Groetken going over from the one. The Bears smeared a pass attempt for the point after and the teams were knotted, 1212, at halftime. Garrigan chances dimmed considerably when the too-present Groetken sprinted 55 yards to paydirt on the tenth play of the third period, but when a smash for the extra point was thwarted with the score 18-12, local fans knew the Bears still had a chance - even if it was a slim one. Late in the third period, the chance came as Bleich broke loose from the Garrigan 23 and zoomed all the way to Gehlen's 12 before being pulled down from behind. The tackle only delayed the TD. Hudspeth and Bleich were halted for no gain, but on third down, Milder hit Potthoff, who found himself all alone near the five. Don grabbed the pitch and slanted in for the TD. The same combination put the extra point in the book - and Garrigan had its 19-18 verdict. There was still another quarter to go - and the Bears had the best of it, getting to the Gehlen 10 once and to the four as the game ended. Potthoff, McCarthy, Kopp"en, Dick and Jack Muller and Joe Ringsdorf were outstanding for the Bears on defense. Gehlen's defensive line was large and no less than nine times tossed the Bears for losses. Bleich rolled up 154 yards in 26 tries, an average of 5.9 yards per try, to account for all but 18 of Garrigan's rushing yards. Potthoff caught three passes for 28 yards, Bleich two for 26 and Tom Wagner one for six as the Bears were out-gained 255-232 rushing and passing during the night. Gehlen flipped only two passes, with none complete, during the game - and didn't try one during the first half. Thirteen Bears played their final game for Coach Cooper. They will graduate next spring.

The tie gave the Trojans a 3-3-2 mark for the year, while Lincoln - Central wound up 4-3-1. A 9-yard run by Tom Weber and an extra point gave Lincoln- Central seven points in the first period, with Elliott, who wound up with 22 touchdowns this season, going 46 yards for a Swea City TD that made it 7-6 when the quarter ended. Von Heggen smashed three yards for Lincoln - Central's other TD in the second round and the visitors had a 13-6 halftime lead. Elliott got away for his 62- yard cruise In the third stanza and Ricardo Correlas booted the extra point to knot the count. Elliott gained 179 yards rushing during the fray and wound up near the 1,100 -yard mark for the season, which saw the Trojans tie their first and last opponents. Coach Wayne Baker named Bill Phelps and Chuck Stewart his top men on defense Friday. SQUASH Dewey Culver of Shellsburg grew a 26-pound squash in his truck garden this year. DR. HERBERT PREUL Dr. Herbert C. Preul, son of Rev. and Mrs. Fred Preul, Fenton, and University of Cincinnati scientist, recently gained recognition for his work with the problem of forecasting how much nitrogen from wastes will poison drinking water. Dr. Preul is a member of the university's department of civil engineering. He reported on his experimental work with the travel of nitrogen through soils recently at an Atlantic City, N.'j. Water Pollution Control Federation meeting. His findings include equations that are useful in predicting the amount of nitrogen pollution that seeps into ground waters from certain types of soil. 1961 CHEVROLET Impalla Coupe, R&H, 34.8 Engine, Stand.
