JULIAN CHMICHIUII '"'.•:.». jtyL THE IOWA HIGH school Athletic Assn. would be making a big mistake in dividing Iowa «choojs into Class A and B again for state tournament puf doles, arid have two champions as proposed by some of the smaller schools. No one liked the two-class meets a few yerfri ago afld We. see less need, for a similar program now With the continuance of consolidations throughout the state. '. ; V 4 , , ; ; We've always felt Minnesota had a fine state tournament and of the eight schools this year, populations for five of them include Mounds View. (5440), Ada (2064), Blooming Prairie (1778), HutchlnsoH (6207), Wlndoim (3691)' and Kenning (980).' - . ' :••',! "Vf' t ?• '.•.'.•'•„'•.••• - 1 ''.

'^ Webster City, a team which placed far down in .the line in the conference arid, which was spundly beaten twice by Algona, had THREE MEN OPJ- tHfi SECOND TEAM . . . thus they had more men on the, first two;teama than either Algona or Clear Lake. . -"- /v ••'. \ •'••. ^V-. ; > .
