G Bulldogs Dump Hampton 55-48 In Rough Fray According to Wobslor's dictionary, basketball is ;in indoor ;ith- lotic game in \vhirh Ihr object is to throw nn inflated 1( athor ball throuf.h a hoop <,r basket and football is a field i, r amc played with an inflated Irnlher ball. The similarity of the ,u;unes should end with the intuited ball idea, however it didn't Friday night as Algeria's hustling Bulldogs'man- aged to scramble to a hard-earned 55-47 victory over Hampton in a North Central Conference panic at Hamptor.. The contesl was more like "tackle the man with the ball" or football without pads. Coach Howie Stephen son stated after the fray that his team would have won more handily "if our linebackers had been hitting harder." This writer normally doesn't waste time talking about' officials of athletic events because it does little pood after the game has been played. However, let it be said now that it's about time something is done for the preservation of man (in this case high school basketball players). The answer to basketball officiating is two-fold. Ik-quire officials to attend a .series of rules interpretation meetings where they could learn the game. Nonattendance at meetings would result, in no jobs. The other answer is younger officials. The latter is a real problem, due to the fact most registered officials are career school men who seem to get all the tournament • jobs and it.'s hara for a young fellow to get a brea'k at all.' First And 10 Algona and Hampton players literally got their heads knocked off in Friday's game. It was rough at the opening whistle and got worse. The locals did manage, some way, to take an 8-7. lead at the end of the first period, then hit a short hot streak during the second round when everyone hit the hoop and grabbed a 32-20 halftime lead. With bruises treated and bleeding stopped, the teams came out for the second half, which everyone figured would be calm. It wasn't. With tripping, pushing, shoving, clipping, slapping and good old clobbering allowed, the Bulldogs wound up with a 43-33 lead at the end of the third period. The teams finished on the same note, with Algona clinging to the lead by hitting iO free throws pnd a lone field goal in the last eight minutes. Violations, which had slipped by unnoticed for both teams during the first three quarters, suddenly were whistled against Algona in the final period, but Hampton wasn't able to take advanage of the breaks. Second All Alone Both clubs haa some fine basketball players in the game. All seven Bulldogs who saw action turned in creditable performances. The defensive play of, the two front men, Tom Waller and Gary Peer, was outstanding. Bob Percival, Len Funk and Chuck Streit were the top rebounders and Streit was top scorer with 17 points. Peer got 12 and Funk 10. Top men for Hampton were Earl Jacobson who got 13 points, Larry Jensen with 11 and Mike Evans with nine. The win gave Algona undisputed possession of second place in the loop standings with a 4-1 mark. The victory also was the fifth straight and,gave the Bulldogs a 5-2 season' mark. Algona -will host Clear Lake, 52-42 winner over Clarion Friday night, in another IOOD game tomorrow (Wednesday) night in the high school gym. The Lions have a 2-2 conference record.

Wrestlers Stay Unbeaten; Dump Dodgers 2MQ Algona high school's wrestling team dropped a pair of early matches then came roaring back to register a convincing 27-10 win over-Fort Dodge in the high school gym Friday night. The win kept Coach Champ Martin's grapplers unbeaten in four outings. Fort Dodge tailed to win a match after Dick Patterson de- cisioned Terry Brandow of .Algona in the 120 Ib. division. At that time, the visitors held the upper hand, 8-5, in team points, but that was all she wrote. The Dodgers got decisions in the 95 and 120 Ib. weights and managed draws in the 103 and 154 Ib. divisions for their .10 points during the otherwise Bulldog-dominated mcet.- Only fall of the duel meet came in the heavyweight class where Tpnju .Gouge, sophomore, who was filling in for the second straight time for the injured Denny Richey, flipped Dodger heavyweight Greg Hoyman in 3:28. Gouge now has a perfect record. In two outings he has two falls and they came one second apart in time. He threw the Blue 'Earth heavyweight in 3:27 a week earlier. He has been outweighed at least 40 pounds both times out. Gouge weighs in ai 180. Until Gouge capped the impressive win, the Bulldogs got points on decisions by George Balluff. Bob Patton, Jim Richardson, Bob Ellefson (who seems to be coming into his own this season), Terry Ringsdorf and Gary Rich and draws by Don Hutchison and Jerry Seiler. Ricn was making his first appearance of the season at 165. He's been on the injured list and return of the regular will be a big help to the team. Results: 95 — Anthony Jensen (FD) dec.

Lyle Loebach and Oscar Froehlich came through during the second round and paced an attack that put the Bears in front 33-27, at halftime.

Dick Heinen and Loebach carried the scoring load for Garrigun during the second half as the Bears pulled out to a 4!)-3!) lead at the three-quarter mark and continued on to the win.
