Columbus Fights Back, but Heelan Wins DESMOINES.Iowa(AP)- You almost had to be there to believe It could happen when it came to the windup first-round Class AAA games of the boys state basketball tournament. "It was a game that they couldn't win and then couldn't lose," said Sioux City Heelan Coach Dick Collins after his team took a bizarre 76-68 overtime game from Waterloo Columbus. His strange statement was very true, however, when you consider this. Waterloo Columbus trailed by 15 points with 10 minutes to play, but amazingly rallied to take a 66-64 lead with 23 seconds to play and — with a blunder by Heelan that led to two more free throw chances — could have won in regulation. Heelan dominated with its rebounding strength in the overtime, and Columbus never had a chance after falling behind quickly by seven points. One statistic told the story of the other first-round game. It read: Rebounds—Marshalltown 67, Fort Madison 37. the final score was a little closer, but not much with the eighth- rated Bobcats prevailing 65-50. Semifinal matchups Friday will find top-ranked Ames, 22-0, playing No. 12 Carroll Kuempe r , 18-2, and Marshalltown, 17-5, testing Sioux City Heelan, 18-5. "It's really ironic," lamented Columbus Coach Virgil Erickson after his dramatic loss. "We've been a good free throw shooting team this season — shooting about 09 per cent. Free throws have won us a lot of games.'' Mercurial guard Clayton Thomas capped Columbus' comeback with a drive-in basket and two free throws — because of an undercutting foul — to give Columbus the 66-64 lead. Heelan took time out to set up a last shot, but when the Crusaders came back on the floor they found Columbus had switched to a zone defense. Mike Courey recognized i the change and immediately called for a timeout. His team, however, had used up its allotment, and it cost Heelan a technical foul Sports Glances Gym Meet Opens Nebraska is hoping to put an end to Iowa State's string of Big Eight Conference gymnastics championships when the league tournament begins today in Boulder, Colo. The Cornhuskers defeated Iowa State in one dual meet earlier this season, but also dropped a match to the Cyclones, winners of eight straight league titles.

Nebraska, despite a mediocre dual meet record of 4-3, is ranked third. Other teams entered in the two-day tournament are Colorado, Kansas and Oklahoma. Don Young, a senior defening his title in the Pommel horse, will be leading Iowa State's squad. The compulsories in all events will be held today, with the team finals scheduled for Saturday afternoon and the individual finals Saturday with a resulting Columbus free throw opportunity and gave the Sailors the ball. Randy Richards missed the free throw and Heelan fouled, sending Thomas to the free throw line with a one-and-one opportunity. He missed and Heelan went quickly down the floor and Courey hit a 15 foot, turnaround jump shot at the buzzer. "You can't fault Courey," said Collins afterwards. "It was only doing what was natural when he recognized that we had our play on for a man-toman and not a zone. He didn't know we had taken our last timeout — it was our fault in not telling the player. That's something we'll take care of in the future." Jeff Ingrum and Courey night.

Timei Harold, Carroll, la. f Friday, March 19, 1976 / lltlllttlt*t*IMIMI*f • ••eliMMIMttiltlMlllMt each hit four free throws in the overtime, and Columbus never was closer than five points. "The shot that tied it up wasn't a freebie," added Erickson. "We made him work for it and give him credit, he hit a tough shot." Al Jones led Heelan with 18 points but fouled out before all the fireworks. Courey finished with 16, Ingrum 14 and John Harty 10. Richards, whose steal set up Thomas' four-point play, led the Sailors with 23, and Kevin Coughlin added 16. "Marshalltown is a very physical team —a lot like us," said Collins of the semifinal matchup with the Bobcats. "I just hope nobody gets hurt out there. "We've got to be careful not to get in foul trouble. I think the deciding factors will be who has the stronger inside game and who dominates the rebounding." Against short but scrappy Fort Madison, Marshalltown was devastating in those two areas, mostly because of 6-foot-8 center Rick DeVolder who poured in 31 points and grabbed 23 rebounds. Fort Madison led only in the first couple minutes and after Marshalltown ran off seven points in the final 34 seconds of the first quarter for a 15-7 lead, the Bloodhounds couldn't recover. Eight straight DeVolder points midway through the second quarter broadened the lead to 30-14. Fort Madison closed to within six with four minutes to play but again Marshalltown pulled away. "With that kind of board work, it's hard to get beat," said a happy Marshalltown Coach George Funk. "Rick had good position for most of his rebounds and rebound baskets, so even against a bigger center he was going to score. He worked very hard all day." DeVolder had to sit out parts of the second and third quarters with foul troubles, and that coupled with some good long-range shooting let Fort Madison come back. "Our guards kind of backed off them somewhat in the second half, and they started to get the ball down," added Funk. "The paper tells it," said Fort Madison Coach Jerry Slykhuis. "It's hard to come back when you can't get more than one shot each time down the floor, and that's what was happening to us." Craig Weuve added 14 for Marshalltown, which shot only 36.4 per cent. Jim Meierotto and Dave Clay had 13 each for Fort Madison, which saw a 13- game winning streak snapped. "We won the ballgame with terrible shooting," summed up Funk, "so if we can play that well and shoot better we're going to be okay the rest of the way." Spencer vs. Forest City for Title DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Is there another Council Bluffs St. Albert's in the making? It appears that might be the case in Iowa's second Class . AA basketball tournament as Spencer, a team with a lackluster 16-6 record, will vye with No. 18 Forest City for the title. "We played what you would have to call a fine game tonight," said Coach Charlie Barrett after his team held off No. 19 Maquoketa 65-63. "I think we've proved we belong here." And it was very evident that the Tigers' opponent for Friday night's finale did too, ripping Atlantic 69-47. P.M. WINJUM O.D.

Hwy. 71 & 30 PARTY RESERVATIONS — DIAL 792-9123 Carroll "They were just fantastic," said Atlantic Coach Jerry Waugh in praise of Forest City. "I don't think we played a team this year that could come within 15 points of them." Spencer didn't look as awesome but pulled out its second surprise of the tournament. "Our shooting was good from out — and I thought our defensive effort was very strong," offered Barrett. "Put those together and it's a good combination." His team came to the tournament lightly regarded — receiving only one of a possible 63 votes to take the crown, and that from a local writer. It was the same case a year ago. St. Albert surprised a strong field, including Forest City in the semifinals, en route to the title. The Falcons finished 19-6. "We played solid basketball the last month or so," continued Barrett, whose team tied for third in the Lakes Conference with Sheldon and behind Storm Lake and Cherokee. "We've won 10 straight — including some close ones." Add the Maquoketa contest to the latter category. The Tigers led almost all the way but nearly lost it in the final minutes. "The team with the most talent won tonight," commented Maquoketa Coach Bill Fleming. "But not the team with the most heart and most guts. They just had better athletes that us — and five better shooters." Maquoketa's rag-tag bunch nearly pulled the game out. coming back from a nine-point, fourth-quarter deficit to within three at 55-52 with a little over a minute to play. I DR. JOHN E.

You're in no mood to have anyone lecture you about how cheap food really is these days, right? Okay. It's true ... your total food bill is running bigger than ever before. But we'd like for you to remember two facts next time you shop: One: We Americans spend less of our take-home pay on food than any people on Earth. We average about 18% of our take-home pay* for food. The Japanese pay over 30%. In Eastern Europe and Russia, it takes from 35% to 50%. In many countries, the rate is over 70% ... if the food's available at all. Two: On the average, we Americans are spending a smaller percentage of our take-home n/Vlr| Agriculture pay for food every year. In 1950, an average American family spent 22.2% of its take-home pay for food. In 1960, it took 207r. This year, the typical family will spend about I87c of its take-home pay for food.* We're not asking you to hum the Star Spangled Banner when you go through the checkout lane this week. We just hope you'll think kindly for a minute about the system which brings good food to you ... on a regular basis. Granted, it's not perfect. It's just the best arrangement anybody in the world's come up with yet. This message brought to you by the National Agri-Marketing Association and SCHETTLER SEED FARM CARR01J.. IOWA 51401 A questionable offensive foul on center Lester Johnson took away a basket with 36 seconds left that would have brought the Cardinals to within one. A traveling call 20 seconds later took away another two-pointer. Bill Gabelmann hit one free throw with nine seconds left, and Spencer let Clay Romer score unmolested with three seconds to play. The Tigers didn't even bring the ball in bounds as time ran out.
