thurtdoy, January 6, 1966 Afflona, (la.) Upper D«* Mdta*«-13 Minnie Morris While many Minnesota Twins baseball fans were disappointed when the star attraction, shortstop Zoilo Versalles, the American League's Most Valuable Player in 1965, failed to make a scheduled appearance here Monday night, rookie first baseman Dick Reese, a personable 23-year old Ohioan, and Jerry Snyder of the organization's public relations staff proved quite entertaining during a session in the Algona high school auditorium. Versalles couldn't make the trip due to illness in his family in the Twin Cities, so Snyder, a fine speaker, and Reese, who stated he was making the first speech of his career, filled in admirably. Many young little leaguers from Algona were among the fans present. Featured was a 40-minute color movie of the 1965 World Series, shown for the first time in Iowa. The Rotary, Kiwanis and Lions clubs here sponsored the appearance of the Twins representatives. ,,, Snyder gave a rundown on the Twins, using wit at the proper times, and apologized for Zoilo's absence. Reese, originally property of the Detroit Tigers, and happy about it because he was "an Indian hater", was drafted by the Twins and has been playing,in the minor leagues most of the time since, with limited major league action. Preceding the program at the high school, a dinner feting the guests from the Twin Cities, was held at Charlie's Supper Club. The entire group at the dinner is shown above. Included around the table, left to right, are : Craig Smith, Snyder, Ed Gilmore, Dean Schlapia, George Allen, Bud Anderson, Mayor Bill Finn, Ray Langfitt, Oliver Carlson, 'Pat Montag, Reese and Bill Steele. Don Smith of the Upper Des Moines Is standing behind Reese. The others are members of ,.,'the sponsoring service clubs or news media. (Poundstone Studio Photo) LuVerne Boys Roll To 85-51 LuVerne and Meservy-Thornton shared a pair of basketball games at LuVerne Tuesday night. The home girls dropped a 68-42 decision and the boys roared back to take the finale, 85-51. Meservey - Thornton held quarter leads of 21-15,38-20 and 58-32 on the way to the win in the curtain-raiser. Jane Hanselman of LuVerne led all scorers with 35 points, while Colleen Obrecht of the winners notched 28. LuVerne took a scant 13-12 first quarter lead in the boys game, then upped the margin to 32-24 at halftime before zooming to a 59-33 bulge at the three- quarter mark. Eugene Hefty led Coach BryceWickett's Lions with 25 points and Doug Nelson got 20. Rick Siskow led the losers with 16. stall offense. The stall paid off as Boldrldge was fouled and hit two free throws, Waller punched home a lay-up and Espe added three free throws before Kalkbrenner hit the final points of the night. Clarion wound up with a 34-30 rebound margin, but Algona had an 8-1 bulge in steals and a 3-1 edge in blocked shots. Teeter got 13 rebounds and Waller four in a reserve role for the Bulldogs, while Kalkbrenner, who is quite a basketball player, got 11 for the losers. Espe and Teeter each gobbled up three enemy passes and Teeter, Boldridge and Espe each blocked a shot. Kalkbrenner led all scorers with 24 points, while Teeter topped the Bulldogs with 16. Merryman got 15 very important tallies and Waller and Espe pitched in eight each - with most of them coming just at the right time. The defensive play of both clubs was good. Bulldogs Nip Clarion* 56-48; »- '.•"••• ~i>'.'•'.:!• Iowa Falls Foe Here Friday Algona's Bulldogs appeared a little rusty after playing only one opponent since Dec. 10, but relied on their well-known stall offense and the outstanding work of Steve Waller, Dale Teeter and Craig Espe down the stretch to post a thrilling 56-48 North Central Conference win at Clarion Tue sday night. Coach Howie Stephenson's club, now possessing a 6-1 season mark, including four straight wins, and a 4-1 loop record, host Iowa Falls here in another big loop fray Friday night (tomorrow), then appear In a Coaches Clinic game at Spencer the following evening. A win over the Cadets Friday is a necessity if the locals are to remain in the thick of the conference struggle. 1 The locals led most of the way at Clarion, then had to put together a real old-fashioned rally during the final period to put the win away. Both teams were cautious - and cold - during the first round. Clarion held 2-0 and 3-2 leads before the locals went into a slim 4-3 margin with four minutes of action gone. Then, with Teeter, Dan Merryman, Dave Walker and Bill Boldridge finding the range, the bulge went to 13-5 before Clarion closed it to 13-8 at the buzzer. v The Cowboys cut the gap to 13-10, then it was 14-12 early in the second quarter before a sudden burst from Merryman and Teeter upped the count to 20-12. It was 20-16 and 24-17 before the Bulldogs took a 29-24 edge at halftime. A couple of times during the third stanza, Algona appeared to be pulling away - but the Cow- boys managed to come back after trailing by 36-29 and 38-31 and with eight minutes left were down only 38-36. A Clarion bucket at the start of the fourth quarter knotted the count and after Waller hit a nice rebound shot to make it 40-38, the Cowboys got another and it was 40-40. Then came the clinchers. Waller got another rebound - and stuck it in for two points, then Teeter hit to make it 44-40 before Mike Kalkbrenner canned one for the home club. Then Merryman canned a long shot before a Clarion free throw made it 46-43. A rebound shot by Teeter added two more to the Algona edge, but Clarion crept up and it was 48-46. Then Espe hit a free throw - and with 2:55 left,CoachStephenson called time and the club went into its Box score : ALGONA (56) Merryman Teeter Walker .
