And while these awesome offensive exhibitions were being staged, Sumner's Aces were going about the business of methodically tearing ths Fayette Cardinals apart with an offensive and defensive "Spectacular" of their own, 81-33. —AFN— From this opening show, of offensive strength it appears that Elkader. Postville and Sumner surely must all be endowed with accurate "gunners" and that Valley High's Tigers may also boast some good shooters as they poured 66 points through a hoop in a losing effort. In looking over the individual scoring, we find that Denny Hjelmeng. now in his fourth year as an Elkader regular, apparently retains his uncanny shooting ability. He led the Warriors with 26 points. John Costigan with 16 and Gary Patrick with 12 rounded out double figure scorers. Postville had five in double figure? including, Bill Radloff with 26. Marv Peck with 12. Brad Schultz with 16, Smith with 26 and the 6-6. Sid Harberts hit 14. Valley had a junior, De Sart and a sophomore, Fauser, son of Don, with 18 and 12 respectively. —AFN— North High and Waukon have- n*t opened their conference slates as yet, but the Indians won a non-conference opener over Cresco and were set to go against Valley High Tuesday night (11-22). North opens in a non- conference game against Decorah Tuesday night (11-22). —AFN— It won't take long to find out how the Aces rate with what appears to be the best in the conference. They tangle with Valley High next Tuesday night at the Tiger gymn (11-29) and then on Friday night, Dec. 2, will host Elkader's Warriors, the defending conference champion. They'll also have a crack at Postville in (the not too distant future (12-16). —AFN— Friday night's games with the Fayette teams could hardly be considered desireable competition for gaining game experience for the Ace teams. This was true of the frosh.-soph. game as well as for the varsity game. With due respect to the Fayette youngsters, the Ace teams would have had much keener and more beneficial competition by dividing their respective squads. Which makes you wonder just what the future holds for the Fayette sports program. Prospects are not good at present and I cannot see how they can improve to any great extent, even though the Cardinals are using a number of young players (freshmen and sophomores) on their varsity basketball team, as they did on their football team earlier this fall. The Cardinal school, the last time I checked, had an enrollment of 92.43 in the upper three grades in high school and there appears to be no chance that this will get better. Next smallest in the conference is Valley High with 165. Elkader, North High, Waukon, and Sumner all carry enrollment figures in the upper three grades of well over 235. —AFN— Its like Sumner trying to compete, week after week, with East Waterloo. The Aces might be able to come with a team that would down the Trojans, once in a decade, but that's about as good as could be expected. And that's about the way the picture looks in Cardinal land. Their football record over the past couple of seasons bears this out and with graduation of Tom Butter sand company from a fair season a year ago, the future of basketball, like football also is a long, dark tunnel. —AFN— Speaking of Butters, I believe everyone in this area was probably as excited as I was over the performance of Tom with the Iowa State U. freshman in their win over the State University of Iowa frosh Saturday. Tom, who graduated from Fayette High last spring, after making bis mark as a quad-sport man (football, basketball, baseball and track) tossed a pair of long distance touchdowns to Bob Brouillette, 60 nd 65 yards and another of shorter length in directing (the Cyclone first year men to a 29-7 wto. S.U.I.'s varsity coaching staff had been Booking forward to «ejct year's fresh'--- up for some Aces open Conference season with 81-33 win Thursday, November 24, 1966 In what was almost a carbon copy of the preliminary game, Sumner's Aces posted an 81-33 win over the Fayc-tte Cardinals to open their Upper Iowa Conference schedule on a successful note at Sumner Junior High gymnasium Friday night. The Aces, led by the sharp- shooting of Don DeHaven, who posted six first quarter points, Jim Hoppcnworth, who slipped seven through the net. Vic Heyer with five and Bill Anderson, who hit four, pulled away to a 24-5 lead in the first eight minutes and then split duties the rest of the way with the reserves as they coasted to victory. Once again, as in their opener with Tripoli, the Aces featured good outshooting and also picked up a number of "easy" buckets on pass interceptions. The Cardinals, with good size, but a lot of in-experience, couldn't cope with Sumner's doggd full court zone press and time and time again were forced into wild passing. Don DeHaven topped Sumner scoring with 19 points, performing steadily during the time he was in. He had three goals in the first period, three in the second and three goals, plus a free shot in the third. Bill Anderson was second high with 18 points, getting a pair of goals in each period and scoring on two free throws in the second. Jim Hoppenworth was the third player in double figures, hitting two goals and ithree free throws in the first period, a pair of goals in the second, a field goal in the third and a free throw in the fourth. Lloyd Hoth hit nine points, on one goal in each quarter and a free throw in the second. The fifth starter, Vic Heyer, scored seven points getting five points in the first period and a goal in the third. Sumner held a 46-17 margin at halftime and led by 41 points, 65-24 at the end of the third quarter.

Mohlis said he dropped the deer from a distance of approximately 200 feet. Bob Duhrkopf was the other Sumner resident to bag a 10-point buck on Sunday. This brought to seven, the number of deer shot by local hunters upon which reports were received by the Gazette during the four-day season.

And in the middle of the offensive show was Butters. —AFN— Noted in Monday's Register .that Western Conference Commissioner, Paul Brechler is concerned with the damage the televising of such games as the Notre Dame-Michigan State tussle may have on small college football attendance. Perhaps there is reason to be concerned, but I dont believe the situation is as serious as Brechler has indicated. Upper Iowa U, would probably come in the class of schools that play before from 1,000 to 3,000 fans, but I am of the opinion, from experience of the past several seasons that the fans who attend these games will continue to do so, regardless of what college games may be showing on television. There may be exceptions, but the only one I could think of at present would be televising the SUI should they become an undefeated team (an unlikely happenstance in the forseeable future) or ISU being directed by Tom Butters (a likely happenstance in the forseeable fture). For example, I can't see any -televised game (ercept one in which Butters would appear) keeping area fans away from a meeting between Upper Iowa and Luther. Of course, H is possible, I suppose, that televised games might have a detering affect on .the gate for those small college teams that are in the throes of losing seasons. But in this case, most anything, including a batman comic book, would likely be regarded as $ plausible excuse for not supporting the team at the gate. —AFN— The "long" deer season, Nov. 19 through Nov. 22, has taken its toll in this area, but according to reports from hunters deer are so plentiful now that this year's kill will barely make a mark on the overall herd total.

Ron Borcherding led Sumner scorers, with 18 points, getting 14 of them in the first quarter. All but one of his six first quarter field goals came off the fast break. Steve Harms was second high with 15 points, scoring 11 in the second half. Reserves split action with the regulars, but this appeared to have little affect on the scoring. Sumner held a 38-4 margin at halftime and then had their best scoring period of the game, hitting 24 points in the third period. It was also Fayette's best quarter for scoring, as they hit seven points. J. Frey's five points topped Fayette scorers.
