ID fer X Crew Hustling As Work Starts Algona high School's Jdotbal] squad, including 24 varsity and 38 fresh-soph candidates, -began tougher workouts this week. The whole crow sperit Most of last .week on a morning-hight schedule at conditioning and light .contact ;drills. Scrimmage sessions, with the defense 1 offering passive resist' ance, began Monday for the "young and small" squad. According io Coach Harold Shugftrl, "The squad worked harder during the firs! week than any since I arrived here • , sevetal years ago," There seem to be more wuhng workmen on the rosier this yeaOhan for some time. Th&Bulldogs are preparihg for ,an eight-game slate of gamep ;that' $ill begin Friday night, Sept. 11, when the locals host the •Emmelsburg E-Hawks at the -fairgrounds. The final seven irays are with- North Central "Conference teams. ' Here is a list of the boys who have reported for football: 1 Varsity — Dieter Gruner, Jerry tCowan, Jerry Ostrum, Jim Ober- wetter, Bob Kern, Bob Percival, 'Jack yipond, Gary Rich, Jason TStherington and Jim Richardson, lettermen; -and -Gary Peer, I,en Funk, Glen' Johnson, D^an Willrett; Dennis Richey, Dertny «Wallef,-V Gary Graham, G a r\ 'Angle, Steve Miller, Terry Ringsdorf, BUI Kraft, Bob Haag, Randy •Harmes and Chuck» Streit. Gra-ham, Harmes and Streit are 'sophomores, the rest, juniors and thfowinfc out of the. T-formation as it's set up by Cooper. ! The squad, for the most part, is green, a factor that will hamper the Bears through much of the season. Cooper's crew will be meeting tried and tested units practically every time it takes the field. , „ It is possible thai the building program, athletically speaking," at Garrigan might pay off sooner than exfcetlcd».but until that time, Beanie's boys will play the games one at a time. The rugged schedule and lack of experience might prove to be too much to overcome _ but don't count the Bears out — they look like they're going to "come to play" all season. TITONKA HAS 10 LETTERMEN ON SQUAD Coach Lyle Opheim and his assistants, Art Crissingcr and Dick Gipple, greeted 25 boys, including 10 letterwinners, when football practices began Monday evening, Aug. 24, at Titonka.

The letter winners are holdovers from last year's team which- won four and lost one, good enough for a second place finish in the State Line Conference. This year's outfit, according to Opheim, will be< light weight and without backfield experience. Only at center and the two ends can experienced men be placed. The rest have been only limited duty in the past. 'Conditioning and work on plays has been stressed in early workouts.

'• , « , ' It will be a few days before ,boys wiU be spotted in positions 'definitely. , , . •" Accbrding to Shugart, Webster Gity and 'Hampton should be the 'teal'' tough teams in 1 the con-fer- *ence. ,W,ebs$er Qity could field its best team in years and HamRton will have a fine team if Ihe" 1 line comes' alo"hg to help a 'good ''bacfefield.' Eagle Grove, '.Clarion, Iowa Falls, -Humbpldt, iClear Lake and the Bulldogs will vprobably fight it out for the other fix slots in the standings — but of course, there's alw,ays a chance jew"upsets aolng the way.

Swea City's new coach, Bob Hahn, who graduated this spring from, Jowa State Teachers, Col legej Cedar Falls, greeted ,3- 22 man squad when the first foot ball practice was held Monday Aug.,24. Only three seniors ar listed'on the Trojan squad Hahn has six letiermen which he will build his single wing altack around. They , are Dale Farland. senior; Tom ' Diaz, Gary Larson, Alan Mather and Gary Snyder. juniors; and Maurice Caxr, sophomore. ' Carr is the real big boy on the squad.. He tips the scales at 240 and is expected to develop into a rugged performer at right tackle. Only other large boys are Mather, 190. lb. guard and tackle, and Jerald Kluger,: senior end and tackle candidate. Th'R rest of the Trojans are on small side. Mike Stewart, junior center, and Diaz, who can work at either 'guard, are 'full of scrap and will mix things up for opponents in the middle of the line. In the backfield, Snyder is fast, strong and has good balance and will be used at the spin back 'slot; Farland will be the tailback; Jim Elliott, junior, maybe the fastest man in uniform, has looked good at wingback and can also spin;' and Bill Hubbard, sophomore} is short, stocky and mean and should fill the b*ill at blocking back. Gary Dixon, j, ior, who plays tackle and blocking back,' has also looked good at the latter position. ' According to Hahn, the entire squad '"Ms caught on to the single wing plays and is ^hustling, He' expects to win his share of games, but injuries could hurt, as d several ^Unes.r s 5 \& present in antities, a 9004 sign* ;ipr fo^aplton Seaw w,m.lai?e- pne P< tfce toughest schedules thi? etstg ^his begins -VUh- Agorae ^en?%rk meets f tecal# •-• the Trbjaps J?ick reserve strength.
