The Bulldogs rolled to a 19-0 halftime lead and were in complete command. The game disintegrated into • eonteit of "drop the handkerchief." The three official*, at inept at could be imagined in a high school game, spent more time leaning over to pick up their handkerchiefs as they did watching the show. And it was a good show of Bulldog power as they rolled up 390 yards on the ground and in the air while holding Eagle Grove to just 78 total yards. Heck, the officials had a lot better night than that. They moved the ball 209 yards in 21 penalties and that's not counting three or four that were refused. It was ridiculous. They called just about every penalty in the book (clipping, roughness, personal foul, illegal motion, offside, too many men on the field, pass interference.) IF THERE was any fear that Algona would suffer a letdown after the 27-6 loss to Webster City last week, it was quickly disspelled. A 'roughing the kicker' penalty against Eagle Grove gave Algona new life in their first series of downs and the Bulldogs took advantage of it. They rolled 65 yards in five first downs with Randy Riedinger, Mike Betts and Rich Black carrying the mail. For Black, it was his first appearance since being injured in the Clarion game four weeks ago. He showed little effects from a back injury that had kept him sidelined and ran exceptionally well along with going most of the way on defense. Barr scored the first TD on a quarterback sneak from a foot out with 6:05 gone in the game, Tim Black missed his point try but he hit two of four later on. own 30, Algona got 18 yards from Betts and Allen speared another pass for 13. Taylor and Black got some more yards and Betts swept over from the three yard line to make it 32-0.

They finished on the 22. This wasn't a good Eagle Grove team. In fact, it wasn't even an average Eagle team. The Bulldogs dominated the game to such an extent you felt they could have given the Eagles 25 downs per series and wouldn't have to worry a great deal. There was some fine backfield work by Taylor, Rich Black, Betts and Barr but the line was superb again. They gave up just 17 yards on the ground and guys like Jim Utt, Steve Voyles, Pon Hagen, Mike Dreyer and others made this a miserable evening for the home crowd. Next up for the Bulldogs is a big battle at Hampton this Friday. The victory, coupled with the defeat of Clarion by Humboldt and Hampton by Webster City, gave the Algona team undisputed possession of second place. Only a complete letdown can keep the locals from finishing with two wins and a 7-1 season.

The Bulldogs covered the 91 yards in nine plays with Greg Allen catching two big passes for 36 and 30 yards in the series. The last reception took the ball to the 10 and on came a fired up Gilmore City second down, Larry Taylor team Wednesday night and downed the Rockets 27-7 after Twin Rivers posts 5th win of year Twin Rivers of Bode over- made a brilliant reception of a Barr pass for the touchdown. The fact he was a yard or two out of bounds when he caught it went undetected. This certainly must have been the only call the officials missed all night. That score came with just a minute gone in the second quarter and put Algona in front, 13-0. Algona started again from its own 43 after a short 13-yard kick. The Bulldogs got a 15-yarder for clipping on the first play but Betts made up most of that yardage on a 19-yard sweep around end. Black got 12 more yards and Riedinger and Taylor carried to the Eagle Grove 22. A five-yard penalty for having too many men on the field (the Eagles got this treatment three times), put the ball on the 17 and Barr pitched out to Betts who turned on the speed to go in from the 17 with 4:55 left in the first half. Barr had a pass intercepted before intermission but Black returned the favor on the Algona 25 and almost went all leading by only 7-0 at halftime. Steve Bergum ran for touchdowns of eight and one yard and passed 40 yards to Roger Clark for another. Poug Logue scored the other Pirate touchdown on a short plunge. The aroused Gilmore City offense controlled the ball much of the first half and had 10 first downs and over 200 yards total offense for the game. Twin Rivers, on the other hand, rolled up 16 first downs, had 257 yards rushing and added 100 more via the airways in building its record to 4-1 in the conference and 5-1 overall.

BETTS' 37-yard kick return set up the fourth Algona touchdown early in the second half. Riedinger and Black punched the ball to the Eagle Grove six and Taylor got the last half dozen yards with two punches into the line with 4:35 left in the 'third period. That made it 26-0. Algona got its last six 7. The Bear yearlings played without a number of their top sophomores who were held out so that they could participate in the varsity game at Carroll Kuemper the next night. Lone Garrigan touchdown was by Gary Cooper, who intercepted a pass and returned it for 40 yards and a touchdown. The sophomores travel 8 p.m. and then close out their campaign against Newman of Mason City here Nov. 4. GARRIGAN gave Carroll just one opportunity to score and the home club took advantage of it. It was early in the second quarter when John Mertz punted from the Garrigan 21-yard line. The ball slid off the side of his foot and went only 12 yards. To make matters worse, Carroll returned the kick for 10 yards and started its drive from the Garrigan 23. Fullback Bellenhausen went over from the three-yard line with about four minutes gone in the second period. The PAT was kicked and that was the scoring for the night. Garrigan had one of those nights When it moved the ball well from 20 to 20 but couldn't get any deeper. Their best threat came the first time they had the ball after Carroll received the kickoff, were held and punted. The Bears moved to the Kuemper 20 and had it second and two. Jack Muller burst through the line to the Carroll 3 but a holding penalty for 15 yards put it back on the 35 and the drive died. THE BEARS had another close one early in the fourth quarter when a Tom Froehlich pass was barely hobbled and dropped near the goal- line. Froehlich, a sophomore replacing Tom Black as signal-caller, hit 10 of 21 passes for 82 yards and did a fine job. He moved the Bears for 246 yards compared to only 82 for the winners. Carroll got only one first down in the second half and that was on the final play of the game. "Our defense was never better," assistant coach Steve McCall commented Saturday morning.

But they all played well." in the north half of the county and Mrs. Ed Arend, Al- - gona, will work in the south half of the county. Kossuth was allowed two coordinators because it is a double county. They have been recruiting for the Neighborhood Youth Corps and Head Start. These are 16 to 21 year olds that have dropped out of school and are unemployed, so often they are hard to be located. The Neighborhood Youth Corps Program in Kossuth County is employing thirteen low income youths between the ages of 16 and 21, working at Algona Public School, St. John's, School, Bancroft, Burt School, Ledyard, St. Paul's School, Whittemore, St. Joseph's School, Wesley, Senltral School, Fenton, Garrigan School and the ASCS Office in Algona. They are working 10 hours per week at $1.25 per hour. One is an out of school dropout working 32 hoursper week. This project gives these youths: a valuable employment experience. The income gives them clothing and other necessities that the average young person takes for granted. This allows the youth to remain in school.

Anyone wanting to contact these ladies please call the office, phone number 295-2531, Mrs. Asa's home or Mrs. Arend's home. •The Upper Pes Moines Opportunity, Inc. is negotiating with the Iowa State Employment Service to have an Bnv ployment Service specialist Visit the county seat centers on a regular basis. •••••••ooooooeeeeeoooo St. Joe Mrs, Sylvester Wagner The Pon Besches and Stephen spent last week at Jack Muller ran extremely <lhe maternal Joseph Beckwell.
