Three Cases Are Filed Here In District Court Three new cases were filed in district court here during the week.

Muller canned 35 points, two more than any Garrigan player had ever scored in one game and his shooting most of the time was really something to see. He banged in 14 field goals and seven of nine free throws, getting 10 points in the first period, 12 in the second and 13 in the third. He sat out most of the fourth quarter. Besides that, he led the club in rebounding with 15 grabs as the Bears won their seventh straight and ran their season mark to 10-1. The Moose, as he is known by all his fans, triggered Garrigan's offense from the opening whistle. He missed his first field goal attempt, then fired in five straight, mostly from outside, as Garrigan held leads of 6-3, 12-5 and 18-8 on the way to a 20-9 bulge at the quarter. It was apparent the Bears were going to avenge their only loss of the season, an 82-71 defeat at Newman, Dec. 10. Coach Steve McCall's outfit, with Bill Reding and Don Potthoff giving Muller a hand in the scoring column, pushed the margin to 40-23 late in the second quarter, but the Knights counted six points, so Garrigan had a 40-29 halftime lead. The count went to 44-33 with a couple of minutes gone in the third period - when the roof suddenly fell in on the visitors. Four of the Bears, led by Muller, fired in 22 STRAIGHT POINTS, apping the bulge to 66-33, and it was too late to lock the barn. Garrigan was on top, 68-41, at the three-quarter mark. A last-ditch rally by the Knights, against a tired group of Bears who had spent all kinds of energy during the third quarter blast, closed the gap at the final buzzer to 15 points, but the 77-62 score told none of the story. The visitors were literally flattened by the hot*shooting locals and from the start had no chance for a victory, instead winding up with their eighth loss in 14 games, One of Midler's few close in shots of the night established the new scoring mark. He drove past a defender and fired in a lay-up late in the third quarter, upping the total to 35 - and didn't get any more. He didn't have to - the long standing ovation he received from the large number of local fans present proved he had played his finest game to date. Reding got 15 points and Potthoff 14 for the Bears, while Lynn Huber notched 20, Jim Sallee 18 and Don Upton 16 for the losers. The Bears wound up with a 33-23 bulge in rebounds, a 9-10 deficit in steals and interceptions and a 2-0 margin in blocked shots. Potthoff, with six rebounds, tied Newman's best under the boards, Dan Upton. Garrigan's two guards, Dick Bleich and Bob Smith, each had three steals.
