JULIAN CNRIICHILLII tanf If a* 'Servicemen ROMOTED U. S. Army, Vietnam (AHT- NC) — Keith W. Holm, 20, son (Ifwa) Advafita TMUMDAV, D6C. 7, OAVB MARTIN, son of Mr. and Mrs. "Champ" Martin of Algona, made his varsity wrestling debut an impressive one as he won the 160-pound division of the AAU Invitational meet at Wartburg Saturday and in the process defeated a two- time national collegiate champion from Winona State in Minnesota . . . Martin defeated Jim Tanniehill in the finals ... Tanniehill has been collegiate champion in the small college division the past two years and last year was fifth in the national university division: Even with these credentials, Dave may have trouble making the varsity Iowa State University team this year . . . he's sandwiched between two veteran seniors at 1SU but hopes to cut to 152 pounds if one of them goes down to 145. Martin wrestled in the 154-pound class his senior year at Algona high school. Some other ex-Bulldog matmen participated in the Wartburg meet, which attracted 250 entries from 10 or 12 schools but found 20 of the 22 finalists from ISU . . . Larry Munger, now an ISU freshman, placed third in the 123-pound class. 'Clint Young, a freshman at Northern Iowa University, was in the same weight as Martin, 160 pounds, but lost to Tan- niehill in the second round . . . Max Miller, now at Wartburg, lost in the first round as did a couple of ex-Algona matmen, Dana and Mick Snodgress, now of Mt. Vernon. Coach Martin hopes to take his entire squad to Ames Saturday to watch the first ISU dual meet of the season against Kansas State Saturday night. : SOME 30,000 PIECES of mail are enroute to PFC William Rice, an American soldier in Vietnam .. .it happened this way: Rice wrote to the "DEAR ABBY" column, which appears regularly in the Thursday Advance, after he wrote asking for mail and signing his letter "A lonely soldier in Vietnam" ... but the friendly missives including 28,200 letters and 614 parcels, were embargoed in San Francisco and Seattle by an Army regulation that prohibits the delivery of mail addressed to anonymous servicemen in the war zone. The regulations were established to keep derogatory material from being sent to soldiers in Vietnam by peaceniks, who in some cases have sent cans of dog food . . . but the matter was cleared up and the letters and packages are on ;. their way to PFC. Rice, who wants to distribute them to his 'buddies in the area! CLARION RECENTLY approved a new $1.4 million bond issue for a new high school and present plans call for bid letting April 1 with the new school to be ready for the ; 1969 : 70 year . . . although Algona's bid letting is expected a few weeks earlier, target date for completion here is early in 1970! YOUNGSTERS love to send Santa Claus letters, but they are usually sent by personal mail by the parents ... but the Burt postoffice received two last week, one from Fred D. Lain and the other from Jerry Dale Lain. Fred wanted a Zorro suit..', .and Jerry wanted a camper's belt, compass, Canteen, knife-and., axe, phis;; a 5x7.!pup tent with carrying! fecase. Both promised to leave-a/lunch for Santa!
