W. Cook, who himself once played in a stale tournament in Missouri, have added a new chapter to Kossuth sports history. Tuesday night last week, Ed Thaves, who once spurred the Hurt baseball teams onward, and now lives in Algona but commutes over most of the county, played host to the team at the Chroma . . . n fine gesture . . . one of the highlights, was a season summary by Miss Vivian Strand, faculty member and team sponsor, who revealed that Knssuth'.-i slate entries: —Had to play in suits they borrowed from the Woden team in their first contest this season; their own suits had not arrived. —K. Murray, one of the team stars, created a controversy when some rival coaches said she, should be barred from the girl loom because she once played on a boys baseball team. —Broke the tradition of Lakota never having won a trophy; the girls have won four, thus far this season. —Loosen up before the game with an all-girl leg show, lots of laughter, and good-natured joking, before they take the floor. —Hate to take showers, and Miss Strand has to ride herd on them to make sure that all do— (reason:'Many of the gyms in which they play have poor shower facililies, and the girls want to leave as quickly as pos- sible.1 —For some of the girls it will be a "first time" in Des Moines. —The team will stop at the Snvery Hotel, and its first opponent is the team that knocked off last year's stale champions. Regardless of what happens in the state meet, which begins March 13, Lakota's coach, sponsors, team and townspeople can well feel proud. They have achieved something that only comes once in a lifetime, usually. And, oh yes, last week the -•mvcr coach brought his team over to Lakota and presented the district trophy—after that "score- leper's error", that nearly ended in a riot, in:the district final.
