•-,'.- • y" Bulldogs escape Humboldt 68-62 AIN STEM BY JULIAN CHRISCHILLIS Tib town* If SMI AWT DALE TEETER DOES NOT now hold any nor may never hold the Algona high school career scoring record . . . right now, not, including Friday or Saturday night's games, he is 286 points shy of breaking the Algona high school ca- 'reer record.' ; , The error came to light quite by accident after this writer's attention was drawn to a conversation between a couple of ex-Algona high school greats, Cliff Skogstrom and Doug Meyer . . . the latter commented to Cliff he thought he had scored more than 842 points during a four-year career 'atAHS. : So we checked in the Algona high school scoring records last Friday and sure enough, Meyer not only holds the record but by a whopping 284 points. HE SCORED 1126 POINTS DURING THE YEARS 1952-1956. And thus Teeter is still far short of the mark although he is the second highest scorer. Following is a breakdown of the pair's scoring feats: MEYER Freshman 37 Sophomore 256 Junior 386 Senior 447 TEETER Freshman 0 .Sophomore 128 Junior 471 Senior --— 243 1126 842 Teeter still has a shot at the record but the Bulldogs will have to reach the finals of the district, in all probability, and possibly may need a sub-state game or two for him to doit. Currently, he is scoring at a 24.3 rate for 10 games . . . Algona has eight games remaining during the regular season and should they reach the district finals, that will mean three more . ... should Teeter average 26 points per game during these final 11 games, he would bag 286 more and that would give him 1128 for his career! That's a mighty big order, particularly when the Bulldogs are concentrating on winning games, rather than padding Teeter's average, and in addition, when every team Algona faces is°keying on him. But it will make some interesting reading as the season progresses. And just let us say that Algona could reach, the sub- state finals, and that will be a rugged road with such clubs as St. John's, Garrigan, Buffalo Center^ and some strong ^ub- s'tate competition thrown in^'DaJe would*'sliil need to average about 22 points per game. ' ' ' At least, though, we've got the.record straight now! THE REGULAR card players at the club had had it. Now they were going to do something about the kibitzer who'd been bothering them. When the troublesome talker stepped into the next room, one of the players suggested, "Next hand let's make up a game. He won't know what we're playing and maybe he'll shut up." When the kibitzer returned, the dealer tore the top two cards in half and gave them to the man on his right; he tore the corners off the next three cards and placed them before the next player, face up; he tore the next five 'cards in quarters, gave 15 pieces to the third man, four to himself and put the last piece in the center of the table. Looking intently at four small pieces of card in his hand, the dealer said, "I have a mingle,- and bet a dollar." The second man said, "I have a snazzle, so I'll raise you a dollar." The third man folded, and the fourth said, "I've got a farfle, so I'll raise you two dollars." The kibitzer shook his head slowly from side to side. "You're crazy," he said. ."You're never going to beat a mingle with a lousy farfle." SPORTS Teeter gets 25; 10th win of season Once-beaten Algona, ranked No. 2 in the northwest and No 13 and 14 on various polls looked anything but a rankec team as it escaped a last hall rally to pin Humboldt with 68-62 defeat before a packed house in the local gym Friday night. The Bulldogs wont on to Webster City Saturday night for another conference engagement. Algona looked sluggish, rebounded poorly and showed the effects of a week of semester tests. At least, that's as good an excuse as any. They pulled away to an early 6-0 lead, mounted it to 36-22 at the half and then coasted. And they almost slid too far as the aggressive Wildcats pulled to within, four points in the final two minutes. They got no closer. HUMBOLDT completely dominated the boards and got far better and more shots than did Algona. Had 'they shot in the first half as they did in the second half, they'd have won by 10 or more. Dale Teeter got Algona off to a flying start with a free throw and jumper from the side and Dan Merryman added a gift toss and Espe a long one before the visitors scored with 5:41 gone in the game. Teeter and Espe scored 12 points in a row between them as the Whittemore kids put Algona into an 18-11 first quarter lead. At times, the second quarter was funnier than an old "Keystone Kops" movie. The play was**ragged buf Algona ke$r pulling away and got its biggest lead of the night at 29-14 on two Teeter free throws. THE SECOND half was a different story. Algona maintained pott. In addition, they Were ranked Mo. 2 in the Northwest, the highest rating they have received in many, many years. They got 42 points and trail only Le tfars with 50. Garrigan high, school ranked 9th in the Northwest. Also mentioned were Swea City and Twin Rivers. Clear Lake was ranked 8th in the Northeast.

Garrigan, riding the crest of a nifty seven-game win streak and a ten win - one loss 1 overall record, had fallen in its only earlier meeting with Newman, as the Knights shot a scorching 67% from the field in the second half to turn the trick. Newman, always a nemesis to the Bears, never got into gear as the Bears, led by Muller's school record 35 points (the old standard set by Bob Goecke in 1961 and tied by Lee Froelich in 1964 was 33) for the night, sprinted to a 20-9 first quarter lead and increased it to as much as a fifteen point lead before personally picking Newman apart in the third quarter to lead by as many as 33 points before letting up in the final quarter. Scoring ten points in the first quarter, Muller led the charge as the Bears peppered the basket for ten field goals and twenty points. On the boards, the Bears showed the difference as they collected 13 'bounds to Newman's mere three. Of the 13, Muller pulled in five to place himself in the rebounding lead for good. The second quarter, a little less one-sided than the first, was played out even-steyen as both teams scored 20 apiece. As for Muller, he added four more field goals and four for five from the line to up his total to 22 points and send the rumors flying that the five year old record was ready to fall. Garrigan's other 18 points were split between Don Potthoff and Bill Reding, who had eight apiece, and Dick Bleich, who ad ded the other two. Rebounding, the Bears held a 19-9 edge as Muller totaled nine of these and Potthoff and Reding took in three apiece. FOR THE Knights of Newman, center Dan Upton had 11 points as crack guard Lynn Huber added ten. As the second half began there was a slight apprehension of a possible Newman ambush, but the Bears, now hitting stride, put an end to that as they shot out to enormous leads of as many as 33 points during the third quarter. Numerous Newman errors ended up in Bear buckets as the "flash 'o fire" guard pair of Dick Bleich and Bob Smith endeavored to clean out as many hapless Newman players as they could. Hitting an additional five field goals and three of four free throws. Muller finished his evening of net-scorching With a drive in lay-up to total 35 With seconds to go in the third quarter. Altogether, the Bears outscored Newman by 28-12 for the third quarter as the rest of their scoring was, for the most part, balanced. Reding added five to bring his total to 13 and Smith and Bleich made outstanding plays but scored just four each. NEWMAN, carrying only faint hope of a comeback, all but had that hope smashed as announcer Bill Milder announced the new standard and all Bear fans stood up to give the 6'4" junior for ward a three minute standing ovation. Putting in his reserves by now, Coach Steve McCall had little to worry about, and that little was due to a struggling comeback attempt by Newman. Led by guards Lynn Huber and Jim Sallee, the Knights outscorf ed Garrigan by 21-9 but just couldn't do the job. Final statistics show that the bulk of Garrigan's scoring came from the field as the Bears can* tied 31 field goals. Their fifteen free throws made up the win* ning margin. Besides "Moose," Garrigan's scoring bulk was handled by Reding and Potthoff, who had 15 and 14 respectively. Rebounding, the Bears held a 36-24 edge over the Knights as Muller nailed 15 and Reding and Potthoff added six each. FOR NEWMAN, Lynn Huber led with 20 points as Jim Sallee had 18 and- Dan Upton added 16. Rebounding, Upton led, the Knights with nine. Following the game, Coach McCall offered no comment, explaining that "the team spoke for itself." And it did. The Golden Cub* absorbed their second defeat of the year as they fell by 46-53. Joe Becker canned 7 for the JV's as Kevin O'Brien added 11. GARRIGAN (77) fg Bleich 3 Smith 2 Potthoff 5 Muller ... 14 Reding 7 LaBarre 0 Youngwirth 0 Ringsdorf 0.

Lakota edged Ledyard 74-51 and Sentral ended Hurt's hopes, 60-46 in the 'semifinals Thursday. Lakota led all the way over Ledyard after the first quarter, when Ledyard was ahead 12-11.

He was tied with a score of 424 out of a possible 450 with Eugene Rodberg from Sioux City, In order to determine the winner the number of "x" shots in the center of the bull's eye were compared. The Sioux City man had 9 and Groen 12, so he was the win- ner. Third place winner was Chief Boekelman scoring 417. Algona's team probably won first place also, but the results are not verified as yet. On the team besides Boekelman and Groen were Pete Jorgenson with a 302 and Bill Rasnuissen, 376.

I BLAKE Funeral Homos "Completely Appointed Homes" ERNE • WESLEY • T1T.ONKA t CORWITH • RENWICK at "24 — HOUR AMBULANCE SERVICE" a comfortable 10-point lead most of the time with eight straight free throws but after getting ahead 51-39, slacked up a bit and Humboldt closed to 51-42 at the quarter. Coach Howie Stephenson sent his boys into a full half- court offense and the tactics paid off' with two driving lay- ups by Teeter. Bill Boldridge made it 59-46 with five minutes to go but the scrappy Humboldt crew kept whittling away. Hot outside shooting by Lee arid Blanchard closed the gap to 60-55 and a driving layup by Marso made it 61-57. He fouled out seconds later. Espe canned two free throws but Lee hit again from far out, Dan Merryman stuffed a jumper but Leweilyn, an ex-Algona boy, matched it. He fouled out seconds later too and Algona held on. Dale Walker went out for Algona with 50 seconds to go and Teeter finished it up with a layup in the final seconds. Algona had three men in double figures led again by Teeter with 25, a shade over his 24.3 average. But this was not one of his better nights, either on the boards or from the field. He got only two outside buckets and managed only seven points in the middle two quarters. ESPE had a hot hand at the free throw line, batting 100% on eight tries. Merryman added 14. Algona, outshot from the field by a 25-21 field goal margin, cashed in on 26 of 38 gift tosses and won it at the line. The win brings the Bulldog record to 10-1 for the year. The junior varsity made their record 9-1 with an easy 81-49 win in the opener. Five men wore in double figures.
