Algona, (la.) Upper DM MolnM Towddy, February 1, 1966 Garrigan Is Consolation Meet Victor Strength under the boards and a good third period usheredGar- rlgan to a thrilling 66-62 victory over Remsen St. Mary's In the consolation finals of the annual CYO Tournament here before a packed house Sunday evening. Ft. Dodge St. Edmond, 62-57 winner over the Bears Wednesday night, came up with a 56-54 victory over Carroll Kuemper to grab the championship in the final game of the night. A short jump shot by Jim Hassett with about seven seconds left won It for the Gaels after the Knights finally tied the count at 54-54 after an uphill struggle. Cherokee 1C downed Fonda OLGS, 53-51, in the class B finals and Breda St. Bernard's dumped Emmetsburg Catholic, 72-63, in the consolation struggle during the 2-game afternoon session. Top scorers were ChuckGeorge, Cherokee, 22 points, Larry Mahoney, Fonda, 20, Schettler, Breda, 19, and Bisenius, Emmetsburg, 21. The Bears, who play at Granville Spalding Friday night at Carroll Kuemper this Saturday night, got red hot shooting from Dick Muller during the third stanza to creep past Remsen. Then, when things got tight near the end of the fray, Bob Smith calmly flipped in four straight free throws to keep the visitors from catching up. The victory ran the Bears' season mark to 12-2. Both teams were cold at the start, but Remsen canned enough early points to hold 6-2, 9-4 and 11-8 leads before BrlanLaBarre came off the bench, fired In three straight long ones, and put the Bears on top, 14-12, at the quarter. Don Potthoff handled most of the rebounding and Dick Bleich stirred things up well on defense during this stretch. Muller warmed up during the second round, finding the range for four fielders as the locals broke from a 17-17 tie to lead 22-17 and 26-18 before leaving the floor at intermission with a 30-24 edge. Gary Weiler, Don Schroeder and Jim Krieges had a good third quarter for Remsen, but Muller hit five of seven field goal attempts and snared three rebounds to lead the Bears to 35-27, 41-30 and 48-38 edges. The locals held the upper hand, 51-40, at the three-quarter . mark - and the way the Remsen club kept battling, they needed all of the margin. Weiler and Schroeder hit 18 points between them coming down the stretch, but when the margin was cut to 62-59, Smith hit two free tosses, then fired home two more when the count got to 64-62. Muller wound up as top man for the Bears In scoring with 24 points and rebounds with 13. The Bears held a 33-25 margin in rebounds. Potthoff grabbed eight and Bill Reding four for the winners and the former wound up second in scoring with 11 points. Reding added nine and Smith eight. Weiler got 26 points for the losers, and also chipped in with 12 of his team's rebounds. Schroeder got 14 points and Krieges 13. St. Edmond appeared to have far too much strength for Kuemper - but after crawling to a 15-13 first quarter lead and blasting to a seemingly safe 3523 halftime bulge, the Gaels were practically played off their feet Box score: GARRIGAN (66) Potthoff Reding Muller Smith Bleich LaBarre Youngwirth Ringsdorf REMSEN (62) Schroeder Weiler Krieges Nilles Harpenau Augustine FG 5 3 10 2 2 3 1 0 26 FG 4 9 5 0 2 1 21 FT 1-1 4-3 5-4 4-4 2-1 0-0 0-0 2-1 F 4 1 5 2 5 0 2 1 6 - Street Parking Ban, 2-6 A.M.

Hassett's late shot saved them after big John Perkins had furnished the fireworks that allowed the early lead. He punched In 16 of his game- leading 24 points in the first half, and also led the winners under the boards with 13 rebounds. Perkins was the only St. Edmond player in double figures, while the Knights had two, Dellinger and Blllmeyer, with 18. The losers held a 24-23 edge in field goals, but collapsed at the free throw line, hitting only six of 18, including many 1-and- 1 possibilities. J. W. Williams, 69, West Bend, Rites Jan. 28 J. Walter Williams, 69, West Bead, died Tuesday afternoon of last week at Palo Alto County hospital, Emmetsburg, following a long illness.

Enlargement, W-Bend School At a joint session between schools boards of education from Palo Alto, Kossuth, Humboldt, and Pocahontas counties, and after hearing discussions voted to approve certain boundaries and the method of election of directors, for an enlarged West Bend,school district. The board eliminated 10 sections originally in the plan, from the Rodman area, and approved the West Bend, Fern Valley and Whittemore areas as originally proposed. A seven-man board ol directors for the new district will be elected at large. At Traffic School Charles M. Bird, Iowa highway patrolman, and Richard Groen, assistant chief of police, Algona, were among 80 law enforcement officers attending a five-day police traffic school at Iowa City this week. A proposed revision of the Algona parking ordinance, which would forbid on-street parking between Phillips and Ridgely, on North Street, Call Street, Nebraska and McGregor streets, as well as State Stree from 2 to 6 a. m. had its first reading at the Algona city council meeting, Wednesday night. The revision would also forbid such parking on Main street, from McGregor north to the city limits on highway 18. John Tielebein appeared before the council with an objection to the ordinance as it pertains to Main St. and his objection, and that of Raymond Braun with a question as to how it effected his property, was referred to the planning and zoning commission. Other major items of business included insurance for city property, sanitary sewer work, a report from the fire department, and a general discussion of planning and zoning. Russell Buchanan, city attorney, explained the city property insurance coverage. Prior to 1963, each department carried its own insurance on its own buildings, with a total coverage of $507,000. This was called selective insurance coverage. More recently, the city has had blanket replacement coverage under one policy. In 1964, total coverage was $903,866, with premium of $2,774. In 1965, coverage totaled $1,062,134, with a premium of $3,186. In 1966, coverage will be $1,089,373, with premium of $4,052. Howard Smith, representative of Wallace and Holland, engineering firm of Mason City, appeared in regard to the program of curb and gutters. Maps were studied. Mr. Smith will meet with the planning and zoning commission to obtain their recommendations. He will then attend the next meeting of the council with a positive program and cost estimates. Involved will be about 35,000 feet, which will complete a project started several years ago. Sanitary sewer systems in the southwest, southeast and north east parts of town were discussed. Ralph Elbert, fire chief, made his annual report. The fire department answered a total of 40 fire calls in 1965, of which 21 were within the city limits, 9 fewer than last year. Total fire loss in the city was estimated at $10,000, and for rural fires was $5,000. Mr. Elbert reported that the department has now reached its full complement of 25 men. He reported that approximately 900 youth from Algona and surrounding towns visited the department during the year. Chief Elbert brought specification for a new Step Van emergency vehicle and was authorized to ask for bids. Also discussed was the 701 plan, a long-range program of planning and zoning, with the federal government - to pay 2/3 of the cost and the city to pay 1/3, The last comprehensive study was in 1959, and it was felt that there is a need for updating the planning. Council approved a recommendation to the planning and zoning commission for a study of revision of some programs in the city. Estimate of the total cost lor the study program is $12,000, with the city to pay approximately $4,000, Federal funds would be administered through the plan-* ning director of the Iowa Development Commission. The program here has been endorsed by the Chamber of Commerce and the Algona Industrial Development Corporation, both of whom encouraged the council to recommend the program. A contract was approved for Bob Deal to supply gravel to the city at 18 cents per yard, which is the same as the agreement of 1965. Approved was an agreement for Welp and McCarten to furnish limestone chips at $1,75 per ton, an increase from $1.35. Local trucks haul the chips at $1.00. Park Road Paving The Iowa Highway Com- mission, last week, approved an expenditure of $41,910 for grading and paving slightly over jone mile of roads in the A. A, 'Call State Park in Algona. Work is to be done this year.
