r */ Pir Lynx Swamp Algona Friday Algona high school's Bulldogs Stayed with the high-flying Web- stef City Lynx for about 18 minutes then fell apart as Webster City notched an easy 69-43 win in A North Central Conference fray at Webster City Friday night. Coach George Duvall's team will meet Clarion, perhaps the top team in the loop, at Clarion Friday night. The Cowboys at present are second to Humboldt, which dropped its first league game Friday to Clear Lake, 5849, and are the logical choke to come on and pick up all the marbles at the end of the season. Clarion has the rangiest team in the loop and features the scoring of Dan Stober, Tom Purcell, Gary Doty and Rich Meyer. Hampton downed Iowa Falls, 59-52, in the only other North Central fray Friday night.
