According to officers, the financial statement of the organization looks good. The 1966 campaign will probably be held in October.

Minor Miihap AHS, GHS Teams Have Four Events On Tap This Week 29 14 19 72 There's another big weekend of sports events on tap for area fans this Friday and Saturday as both local schools will be busy and other area teams will be shooting for conference tournament titles. The State Line Conference Tournament winds up at Lakota and the North Star meet reaches its finale at CAL Latimer, both boys and girls, Saturday night. Meanwhile Algona high school's wrestlers travel to Charles City Saturday night, the basketballers host Humboldt here Friday, then go to Webster City Saturday night (both are North Central Conference affairs), and Garrigan's Golden Bears host Mason City Newman here Friday in an attempt to square things with the only club that has beaten them all season. Both local basketball clubs, Coach Howie Stephenson's Btill- dogs and Coach Steve McCall's Bears, have 9-1 records at the present time, while Coach Champ Martin's grapplers have a 3-6 dual meet mark. Leading the Bulldogs in their two basketball outings will be Dale Teeter, senior, who established a new all-time career mark of 841 points with a 34-point night at Eagle Grove last Friday as the locals avenged their lone loss this season. Algona is second in.the loop with a 6-1 record, right on the heels of Clear Lake with a 7-1 mark. Wins over Humboldt and Webster City are musts. In earlier meetings, Algona downed Humboldt, 61-41, and Webster City, 64-56, both before the end of 1965, Teeter's new mark will be upped each time he scores apoint from now until the end of the current season - and he is practically assured of reaching the 1,000-point level, His 242 points this season in 10 games are the result of 83 field goals and 76 of 93 free throw attempts, with 82 percent hitting the mark. He's not alone, however, when it comes to winning games, His cohorts, Dan Merryman, Dave Walker, Craig Espe, Bill Boldridge and ail the reserves have contributed mightily to the fine showing so far, Espe is averaging U.I points per game, Merryman, io.8,Wa!ker,9.3,and Boldridge, 3, while the team Has scored at a 65,3 clip and allowed an average of 52.4 points per contest. Improvement of the reserves has also lifted the locals to heights not thought possible DALE TEETER when the season got underway. The Bears socked Austin Pacelli, 81-59, in their last outing Friday night, running their winning skein to six (one less than the Bulldogs have amassed) - and during that stretch have shown improvement in every department. Garrigan is averaging 68.6 points per game on offense while giving up 59 points to the opposition . Their defeat at the hands of Newman, 82-71, Dec. 10, came during perhaps their poorest night of the season - and they will be out to prove they are the better team Friday. Leading scorer is Dick Muller, junior center, with a 16.2 average. He is also one of the top rebounders in the area and is followed in the averages by Bill Reding, 12.9, Don Potthoff, 11.5 Bob Smith,.7.8, Brian LaBarre, 7.2, and Jim Youngwirth, 3.3. Garrigan's bench is also important to McCall's brand of play, for he like Stephenson, features a pressing defense and stall offense when it is needed. Regulars must get rest, and when necessary, reserves are sent into the fray - and they have held up their end of the job remarkably well. The wrestlers dropped a 24-19 North Conference meet to Iowa Falls last Saturday night - their final loop meet of the current season - and have two non- conference meets left. Charles City has a rugged team which narrowly missed downing the locals here last year, and undefeated Dave Martin, 154-pounder, and his mates will have their hands full Saturday. Following the Charles City meet, the locals host Osage here Jan. 28, then get ready for Sectional Tournament action Feb. 7-10. Twin Rivers Is Leading Pack In Lakes Loop The Twin Rivers boys are leading the pack in the Twin Lakes Conference while the girls are seventh at the present time, according to latest official statistics, The boys have a 5-2 loop record and the girls are 1-6. R. Anderson of Twin Rivers is third in the boys scoring race with 118 points and a 16,9 average, while S. Erdman of the Twin Rivers girls is seventh in scoring with 144 points and a 20.6 mark, The boys lead the league in defense, allowing an average of 51.6 points per game, while they are ff'.rth in offense with a 62.7 scoring average. The girls are seventh on defense and eighth in offense. Shower Honors A miscellaneous shower was given for Sandi Markla at the Moose Hall in Algona, Sunday afternoon, Jan. 16.
