Wulfsberg, a starter most of the season, missed the 1974-75 season after suffering a knee injury in the first game. "I might be able to qualify for dental school this fall by taking a summer-school course I need," he said. "But I think I'll wait and play my last season first. " He has played in all 26 Iowa games, has averaged 5.5 points a game and is the team's assist leader and among Big-Ten Conference leaders in that category. Record to 22-0 Undefeated Coe. which has accepted a bid to play in the National Collegiate Division III tournament, ended regular season play with its 22nd consecutive victory, thumping Grinnell 106-82 here Saturday.

Haberecht won't be in the starting lineup against Purdue Wednesday. Coach Lute Olson says: "We will have five people on the court who want to play as hard as they are capable of, regardless of what their abilities are." Haberecht adds: "I feel like Clark Kent, but I never turned into Superman." Easy Winner Richard Petty, barely missing ah eight-car pile up, easily won the Carolina 500 stock car race, finishing two laps ahead of Darrell Waltrip.

The district finals will be Saturday at Denison. Carroll Coach Denny Lokken isn't looking ahead any further than Audubon, a team he said, "Feels they can get us." But, "hopefully, this (24-point victory) will give us a head of steam," the coach said. Eyeing district play, Lokken said he kept his starters in longer than he normally would have with a big lead "to give them some confidence.'' However, things were not all rosey for Carroll Friday. For one thing, Lokken said, he was unhappy that Mike Jansa and Steve Hade scored 24 and 16 points respectively. Thoughts don't linger on the bad after a big win. "It feels good to put some points on the board for one." Lokken commented. The Tigers' 85 points came on 36 field goals (of 67 attempts, for 53.7 per cent) and 13 of 18 free throw attempts. The Panthers netted 23 of 57 goals for 40.4 per cent. Carroll's 5-11 sophomore Edwards pulled down 11 rebounds as the Tigers' gathered 47 off the boards. Dan Onken added 10 and Olerich hauled in seven. The Panthers collected 30 rebounds. Edwards, who Lokken has called inconsistent, is "becoming a smart player." the coach said after the win. Lokken also praised the efforts of Lloyd (who "played well offensively") and Pettitt ("it was really good to see him get back on the track"). Tlmet Herald, Carroll, la. £ Monday, March 1, 1976 J After an early Panther lead, Carroll led at the end ot one period 21-17. By the half, the score was 42-30.

"If we do, we could do all right in the tournament." "We had quite a few heroes," continued Chandlee who has guided the llth-rated Knights . 1 'Tessmer ( Kevin ).

Lake View Girls Advance By Don Davis . CHEROKEE — Lake View-Auburn earned a chance to defend its girls' basketball title in Des Moines starting March 9th by beating a surprisingly tough Washington of Cherokee team 62-53 Friday night. "Earned" is an accurate word to describe the Black Hawkettes' win. If not for a second-period flurry, the Lake View-Auburn girls could have 'been spending next week sitting at home watching other teams play on television. Cherokee was playing LV-A a one-point game, 23-22, with 3:17 to play in the second period. Then Sara Wernimont tossed in a pair of baskets and Micki Olberding added three straight as the Black Hawkettes pulled away to a 33-22 halftime lead, The Bravettes rallied late in the game, but couldn't quite catchup. Next stop for the LV-A express: Des Moines. The defending state champs, now rated eighth in the state, face West Burlington March 9th at 8:30 p.m. in the now-familiar Veterans Memo rial Auditorium. . . West Burlington is one of three undefeated teams in this year's tourney (the other.two are Aplington and Manilla). Wernimont's father summed up many Hawkette fans.' feelings of the season thus far when he said, "You have surprised me so far. Just win four more and you'll really surprise me." His comments came at a brief welcoming back ceremony at the LV-A gymnasium after the win. At the beginning of the year few persons gave LV-A a chance of repeating as champions. Earlier this season, the Hawkettes lost to Ida Grove and twice to Manilla. But LV-A Coach Louis (Bud) McCrea says his team is better than last year's champs. • McCrea's girls, 24-3, showed they c'ould keep cool under pressure Saturday when the Bravettes closed ttie score to eight points at the end of the •third period, 42-34, and to seven with less than three minutes left in the game. •/The late Cherokee rally turned on the nearly packed Cherokee gym (capacity 2,200). . The momentum factor was swinging to the Bravettes, but the time factor wasn't. " Lake"View-Auburn took control in the closing minutes due to its slow-down game which forced Cherokee to foul in an attempt to get the ball. Almost everyone agreed that Cherokee played its best game of the season. "They played exceptionally well," McCrea said. However, the Hawkettes "didn't play well" — at least in the forward court, the coach said. But he quickly added, "When we needed the baskets, they went and got them." LV-A, while shooting 58 per cent (26 of 45), missed several easy shots, McCrea complained. Cherokee missed a lot more, hitting 18 of 50 for 36 per cent. The Hawkettes were more balanced than usual, Mctrea said. Olberding led the scoring column with 25, but JoAnn ; Tj ad en sank 20 and Wernimont 17 (including hitting seven of 10 field goal attempts). Wernimont added six assists. Kay Pick led the guard court with nine rebounds and four steals. Three LV-A guards were in foul trouble late in the game. Debbie Cole and Pick each ended with five. Dianne Buse picked up four. Senior Jean Leinbaugh led the Bravettes. as she has all year, scoring 19 points. Ann Pickens and Colleen Frank each tallied 16 for Cherokee, whose record dropped to 17-6. About 770 tickets for LV-A's first-round game in Des Moines go on sale Tuesday, according to LV-A Supt. Charles E. Ferguson. The tickets also will be good for the 7 p.m. Clarinda-West Lyon (Inwood) game. The Black Hawkettes go back to work the same day the tickets go on sale. McCrea said he would give the girls Monday off. 1 The team probably will not leave' for Des Moines until game day, to give the girls a chance to sleep at home the night before the game, the coach said. ; Meanwhile, the LV-A boys' team is on the tourney trail, facing West Harrison of Mondamin Tuesday in Onawa.

Well ... not gasoline ... but fuels distilled from grain. Not unlike the legendary white lighting ... a 200 proof Droduct that will give nearly anything a start. There's no secret about the %bility of alcohol to power combustion engines (the four cycle engine was invented for it) but the cost spread between alcohol and gasoline has made such uses obsolete for several years. Lately that spread has been noticeably thinner. Thin enough for a serious experiment with a product called gasohol carried out arouncf Holdredge. Nebraska to get national attention. Use of gasohol (90<7 gasoline - 10<* alcohol) in the Holdredge tests resulted in reports of 7 c c better mileage, better starts in cold weather, and exhaust emissions no worse than regular gasoline.
