Gehlen aext Garrigan fee; "Dad's Night" TOM FROEHLICH Garrigan high school, loser to Carroll Kuerhper 7-0 in a game they dominated last Friday night, comes home for its final two games of the season this week and will start off with Gehlen of ,LeMars this Saturday night at 8 p.m. It'll be "Dad's Night" for 'the Bears and fathers of the squad members will be honored. They will 'be locker room guests prior to the game and also sit in on the ha If time locker room session. Prior to the game, the dad of eadi player will be introduced to the crowd. The Bears will close out their season's schedule a week from Saturday night with Newman of Mason City here. Everyone was pretty unanimous that the Bears played their best football of the season despite the loss to Carroll last week. The effort was particularly impressive considering the fact that two regulars — Luke Kollasch and Mike Schiltz — did not play because of injuries. Coach Beanie Cooper indicated this week that both should be ready for this week's LeMars game. He had praise for quarterback Tom Froehlich and defensive end Mike Welp as well as just about everyone that saw action against Carroll. "We got a great effort out of these boys and I'm only sorry they didn't get a win for the way they i( played; 1 ' r Cooper said.'"'Carroll 'never 1 advanced past its own 35-yard r line in the second half but capitalized on their only scoring threat in the opening half. MIKE WELP ftUMItttttltHIUHMHMI Cooper reported. "We hope to shut off their passing with pressure on the passer." JUNIOR HIGH LOSES The Algona high school junior high ended its season Monday night as it lost to Humboldt 27-0 at Humboldt. The team tied one game and lost three. Jerry Payne was the coach. »t«y i with 34-7 will The Algona high school JV's won their fifth game of the season and remained unbeaten Mbnday night by out« classing Eagle Grove, 34-? on the local field. The team will close their season this Monday at Clear Lake in a 7 p.m. game. Algona led at the hal:', 14-0. Steve Fitzpatrick scored the first Algona touchdown on a six-yard run after several good gains by Duane Hunt set up the marker. Fitzpatrick also ran the point. Tom Laing tallied the second Bullpup TD when he picked up a fumble and aided by a block by Les Simpson, ran 30 yards for the score. Fitzpatrick ran the point. In the third quarter, Fitzpatrick ran 10 yards for a touchdown and Steve Armstrong ran the point Algona scored two fourth quarter touchdowns, the first on a 36- yard pass from Jack Waller to Mark Olson and later on a 20- yard keeper play by Armstrong. Eagle Grove got its lone score on a 45-yard run in the fourth period. The Algona team is coached by Don Camenisoh and Lynn Kueck. Algona eyes 3rd best season since 19281! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••I GRID GUESSERS CONTEST A Corwith woman, Mrs. Myron Cram, finished at the tcp of the Advance Football Guessing Contest for the first time as she missed five of the 22 games last week and her total point guess was the closest of any contestant.

Second place went to Mrs. Doris Purcell of Algona with a 51-point guess and five misses. She will receive a check for $5 while Mrs. Cram wins $7.

Muller played his best game of the season, picking up 152 yards on offense and doing a stellar defensive job. Cooper also had praise for two other sophomores —Pat Nugent and Phil Richter — who filled in for the injured Schiltz. William F. Diers and Jerry H. Raney, both juniors in the University ,of Iowa College of Pharmacy, have been elected president and vice-president rjspectively of their class. William is the son of the George Diers, Bancroft, and Jerry's parents are the Lyle Raneys, Algona. STEVE VOYLES Only twice since 1928 has Algona high school lost less than two football games in a single season. Considering this is a span of 39 years, the possibility that the 1967 Bulldog team can accomplish this feat is a big goal as the locals head into the home stretch of their current campaign. Back in 1928, the Algona team went through a season with eight wins, one tie and one loss. The 1947 North Central Conference championship team had a 7-1 mark and the 1962 Conference champions had a record of seven wins and one tie. So this year's club can post an enviable record. Next hurdle is Hampton there Friday night and there's no use kidding anyone, this probably will be the final real test. Winless Clear Lake winds up the season here Nov. 3. "FANS WHO like plenty of action should plan to drive to Hampton Friday," Bulldog Coach Keith Christie reported Monday. "Our scouts report Hampton used a wide-open offense, known as a 'shotgun' offense against Webster City last week and it had the Lynx befuddled for the first half." During that 'half, Hampton scored 20 points and that's as many as all five previous foes had scored. Webster City led 21-30 at the half and then adjusted to the spread formation in the second half and roared away to a 59-27 victory. '•There is ^little' reason*'' to think that the Hampton club will not try the same offense against Algona this week. At least, Christie and his aides have been drilling the Bulldogs against this eventuality all week. "Hampton passed at least 40 times against Webster City," Christie said after conferring with his scouts. "They RANDY CALHOUN IIHMttnHtllltllllHttlMHHIIHHMHIMMmmHIHIIHttMIHMIMIHIHHH- split their ends far out and had five receivers downfield most of the time." THE BULLDOGS from Hampton have a 3-3 season's . mark and are 3-2 for the conference. A win would put them in a second place tie with Algona so they'll have plenty of incentive for this game. Christie was extremely pleased with the work of his defense. Rich Black's return was welcomed, particularly on defense where he did a fine job. He also ran the ball 10 times and picked up some good gains. Black came through the game with no recurrence of a back in- .jury that sidelined him for nearly four games. The Algona coach was also happy with the work of his second defensive unit, which played much of the third and fourth quarters and stopped the Eagles cold. He also had praise for the first half passing of Roger Barr, who tossed some beauties to end Greg Allen for big gains. In fact, Allen caught three passes for 117 yards. '\ Early in the season, Christie promised foreign exchange stuednt Ian Davison a chance to carry the ball if the occa- <.sion would permit it. With a '32-0 lead, Christie sent Davison in .to carry the ball from the Algona 25. ;' Mfcool friths il lirrifii The annual Garrigan high school grade school (6, 7, 8) football tournament began on Wednesday afternoon with four games.
