10-Algona, (la.) Upper Des Moinet Thursday, F*b. 23, 1967 ACTION AHS wrestlers topped the sectionals at Clarion last weekend with Denny Peterson, Randy Rie- dlnger, Clint Young, and Bruce Bennett taking first place and Steve Claude, Don Camp, Max Miller, Phil Bode, and Brad Farnham getting seconds. These boys went to Urbandale Friday In hopes of conquering the district tournament. - o - The basketball boys blazed to the conference championship at Clarion last Saturday and raised their record to 15-2. They met Iowa Falls in their last regular season game here Friday night. The district tourney starts February 27th . . . Forest City is the first foe. - o - "Ah ... tempo DJ, tempo," remarked one of DarylJohnson's fellow vocalists as the talented quartet of Margaret Utt, Brenda SJogren, Brocke Laws, andDaryl Johnson harmonized in English Lit last week. The foursome, looking a lot like the "groovy" Mamas and Papas with mama Cass bellowing forth unrestrained, provided a modern version of a couple Robert Burns songs at the request of Mrs. Kelley, instructor. In order to get more out of the material, the class joined in for a few verses of Auld Lang Syne to top off the entertaining study. A profitable approach. - o - Juniors were asked to sign up for prom committee duty in Mr. Palmer's room last week to get the ball rolling in preparation for April 22. Yes, it is said the date for the festivities is April 22. Last year it was May 7th. Why the switch? We suppose it Is because there are so many events in those last weeks of the school year. Thank you Carlos ... for Informing us that aman'shomelshisCASTLE. - o - We have heard there is another sport increasing in popularity across the nation. And at AHS the rise of soccer as a future big-time sport is being proposed by the Soccer Club. We know that this club is in ex- istance, but aren't sure how to go about joining the organization. It does sound like a rough and tumble sort of thing with the shins as most vulnerable spots. Jim Schutter Is generating the interest in this he-man sport at AHS. We're afraid they'd have to get some protective equipment before venturing onto the soccer fieldl Kick, hit, jab, bash, slam! - o- Today's vocabulary lesson. After every major idea expressed by the speaker, you comment "city". Like the name of this column ... you would call it "action city" In the new capital jargon. Also, if you are looking for something to do and you are checking the various possibilities out, you say "Let's scope this out". If something is called cool or groovy in old- speak, it is "all-time 1 in news- peak. Think about it a while . . . more later. - o Q: What pine has the longest and sharpest needles? A: A porcupine. - o - The last play of the school year is in the planning stage at AHS with director Elmer Sonksen choosing the cast for the comedy "Stardust". The play calls for more women's roles than men's and we understand there was a big battle on for that lead part. It certainly must have been a tough decision for Mr. S. with all the "acting" females around AHS bidding for the lead. The name has no connection with any "lounge" advertised in this area. - o- Jinxed junior Jim Jorgenson (a little alliteration there) is ready to give up and walk, or he may have to, after his third mishap in the past year. Seems this latest one wasn't his fault, however. He was hit from behind at an intersection, while stopped at a stop sign. Another junior lad found the going a bit rough in gym class the other day. Tim Will broke a blood vessel (in his foot was it?) while engaged in a contest called "basketball" when struck down by terrible Tom Snyder and his opposition forces. You see . . . being a member of the SPIRITED senior class, Tom finds it only natural to go all out in the victorious cause. - o- Track is not so far off. The season doesn't officially begin for the AHS thinclads until the basketballers return from the state tournament. Nevertheless, David (pw) Gerber and Dean "Stamina" Teeter have been trying to work out every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday by jogging to Call State Park and back. In this weather? Well, only if it isn't way below zero and blizzardiug. Work I - o - Students had a little midweek break last week when old man winter decided to cooperate. On the other hand, we never want to sit through another antagonizing half hour in study hall again! Sitting there watching the drizzle slowly turn to snow and then seeing the wind whip up momentarily only to die down was most frustrating. But it all turned out ok with the announcement of the 9:30 dismissal. In last week's faculty frolic the teachers were granted their $550 raises. Congratulations. - o - Student Council has chosen its delegates to the District Conference March 30th, in Mason City. Those running for office in the District are President Rich Black, Secretary - Sue Dodds; Treasurer - Julie Chris- chilles; and State Cabinet - Miriam Kautsch. Other AHS delegates in charge of a panel discussion on organizing a student council are Dean Lowman, Tim Black, Greg Allen, and Jeff Allen. - o - Well, a 1.5 million dollar school bond issue may have passed, and the teachers may have gotten over $75,000 dollars in pay increases, but it's still comforting to know that there Is $57.09 in our Student Council treasury! nr HOSPITAL NEWS FEB. 11-Birth: Mr. and Mrs. John McGuire, Bancroft, boy, 7 Ibs., 15 oz.; admitted: Catherine Dudding, Algona, medical; Kevin Kain, Algona, T & A; Ann Kinne, Lu Verne, medical; dismissed: Peggy Mullen, Monica Storr, Maurice Krebsbach, Algona; Ray A.
