Burt came through with a fourth f>lace finish in class C. All first and second place winners in district events advanced to state meet's and it's possible some of the third place winners may also make the grade if their times or distances are better than winning marks in other district meets. LuVerne posted nine first and 90 points while romping to the win in class C. Burt registered 37 points. Clarion won the class A division, getting 71 points while Algona got 34 points and Garrigan got a single counter with fifth in the 880 yard relay. This is Garrigan's first year of track. Here arc LuVerne's first place efforts — Bob Norcross, discus. 117'i"; Paul Gilligan, high jump (tie), 5'8"; Ronnie Clark, broad jump, 19'5Vfe"; two mile relay 9:00.2; Hanselman, mile run, 4:38.9; 880 relay, 1:37.2; medley relay, 3:51.2; 440 relay, :48.8: and mile relay, 3:47.8. Doug Holmes was second in the football throw; Bob Bristow second in the 440; and Ronnie Wilhelm second in the 880. Jerry Koestler of Burt was first in the 120 yard high hurdles, :17.6; and Tom Kissner tied with Gilligan of kuVerne for first in the high jump. Koestler got second in the broad jump and Kissner took second in the high hurdles. Algona failed to get a first, but Gary Peer grabbed second in the 180 yard low hurdles in :21 and the mile relay team of Peer, Richard Hutchins, Bob Parrish and Bob Percival got second in 3:42.2. Jim Oberwetter gained the state meet with his third place finish in the mile run. It is possible the 880 relay team, the 440 relay team and Bjll Sigsbee in the 440 may also qualify with their times despite third place finishes.

Upper Des Moines Tuesday, May 10, 1960 KOSSUTH COUNTY PORTS New Algona High Football Coach Outlines His Plans This photo will serve to introduce Algona high school's new football coach and his wife, Mr and Mrs Jim Hershberger, who visited the city Apr. 30. The Hershbergers plan to move to Algona during the first week of August and Jim will begin workouts with his first A.U.S. squad less than three weeks later, Aug. 24. Both are graduates of Iowa State Teachers College at Cedar Falls. Mr Hershberger has coached for the -past two years at Janesville high school where his teams won almost 80 percent of their games. (Polaroid Photo-UDM Engraving). Algona high school's new football coach, Jim Hershberger, and his wife, Floy, were house- hunting here Apr. 30, and while here the new grid mentor revealed some of his ideas about football. Hershberger will take over the reigns officially Aug. 24, when football practices all over the siate get underway. He and his wife plan to arrive here about the first week in August after Jim finishes a term of summer school at his alma mater, Iowa State Teachers, Cedar Falls. 'Both M/ and Mrs Hershberger are quiet, friendly and very likeable. It is apparent, however, that Jim can be stern enough to get the point across to his players on the practice field and during games this fall. Jim, who played his collegiate football in the North Certral Conference for Teacherr, under the late Buck Starbeck, has patterned much of his offensive and defensive strategy after that of his teacher. Starbeck was recognized as one of the top coaches in the entire midwest for many years before his death. Hershberger will feature the single wing attack on offense. He wants to get a look at his squad and study its potential be- HfTshbrrgrr track here. will also coach Algona Tennis Players Place Second, Dist.

Jim likes to have his teams throw the ball, IF the necessary material (a good passer or two and two or three good receivers) is available. If his teams can't throw, they'll have to grind it out much in the manner of most famous single wing teams. In the coach's own words, "I like good old hard-nosed football." Basically, his offense is not fancy. Fundamentals will take up ti lot of time in the early practices. To play for Hershberger. the first two things any candidate must learn are blocking and tackling. Blocking is especially important in the single wing setup—there's not as much of the brush-type blocking as is used in T and wing-T football. The idea is to knock the opponent down. Hershberger's defensive tactics will also depend on material and offensive patterns used by his opponents. Scouting reports will give Jim some help in the latter category once the season gets underway. Coach Hershberger was signed recently to fill the vacancy which resulted when Coach Harold Shugart resigned. He is a graduate of Kalona high school (near Iowa City) where he lettered in football, basketball and track. In football, he was a back for two years arid an end during his junior and senior years. He played end and tackle for I.S.T.C., then coached the past two years at Janesville, where his teams won 12, lost three and tied one: Jim's hobbies include hunting, fishing and golf. Mrs Hershberger attended high school at Clear Lake where she was active in musical organiza tions. She also attended I.S.T.C. and has taught at Janesville. She will not teach here. Her favorite hobby is golf. Charles Scotts Observeth At Burt May 1 Burt — Mr and, Mrs Charles Scott were hosts to approximately 50 relatives and friends at their home May 1.
