Bulldogs/ Bears Open District Competition The two groups of young athletes shown here are responsible for posting the finest combined basketball won-lost record In a single season at Algona's two high schools, Garrlgan and Public and beginning Monday and Tuesday will put those records on the line In the District Tournament at Garrlgan Fieldhouse. Algona High's Bulldogs, left, will face Forest City Monday at 7:30 p. m. and Garrlgan's Golden Bears, right, will meet a challenge by Humboldt at the same time the following evening. Both clubs wound up regular season activity last weekend with identical 16-2 records - and that's a percentage of .888 wins. The Bulldogs copped the North Central Conference trophy, shown with them, on a 13-1 mark and Garrlgan, with Its two CYO trophies, won the Sioux City Diocesan title. Should both teams come up with wins in District openers, they will then tangle Thursday, March 2, at 7:30 p. m., with the winner advancing to Sub-State competition at Spencer March 4. Bulldogs In the photo at left Include, front row, left to right, Rich Black, Bill Boldridge, Rog Meyer, Craig Espe, Tom Claude and Bob Farnham, and back row, left to right, Coach Howie Stephenson, Craig Taylor, Denny Rlchter, Tom Jones, Gregg Belts, Brocke Laws and Rog Wlldin. Bears in the photo at right are, front row, left to right, Dave McCarthy, Joe Becker, Mike Nltchals, Don Courtney and Brian LaBarre, and In back, left to right, Jim Youngwirth, Dick Muller, Jack Muller, Bill Reding and Coach Steve McCall. Stephenson has a 121-48 (.716 percent) lifetime record In eight seasons at the helm of the Bulldogs, with two trips to the State Tournament; and McCall has a 42-1C (.688 percent) record In three seasons with the Bears. Both coaches are the wlnnlngest In the histories of the schools. (UDM Graphic-Polaroid Flash- f otos by Don Smith) Similarities between basketball teams at Algona High and Garrigan reach beyond identical 16-2 records as the clubs prepare for District Tournament competition here next week. The Bulldogs will battle Forest City's big outfit Monday at 7:30 and the Golden Bears will tangle with Humboldf s off-and-on club the following night at the same hour. IF the local teams win, they will then meet Thursday at 7:30 in the finals, with the winner slated to advance to Sub-State play at Spencer March 4. Winning streaks have been featured by both local clubs, Garrigan racking up one skein of 14 straight, while Algona High has a pair of 7-game spurts. Offensive scoring averages of the clubs are nearly alike, with the Bears hitting 1,377 points in 18 games for a 76.5 average and the Bulldogs counting 1,370 for a 76.2 mark. Defensively, the Bulldogs have allowed 1,039 points, 57.8 per game, and the Bears, 1,089, 60.5 per fray. Statistically, the teams are about as close as they could be, indicating a real cozy hassle IF they meet Thursday. Besides that, both schools set new high single game totals, with Garrlgan hitting 104 against St. John's of Bancroft and Algona hitting 101 against Swea City this season. The schools have met five times (all In tourney play) previously, with the Bulldogs holding a 3-2 edge. Three of the games have been very close, while each has posted a runaway victory In the series. All have been very well played. The <UUDS have met only one common foe - Estherville, Lakes Conference champion, a team that lost only one loop fray in 14 outings. Algona posted a 17- point win and Garrlgan lost by four-both at Estherville. However, when figuring on apossible meeting of the locals Thursday (and each must first win an opener), the Estherville contests should not influence guesses too much. Size-wise, the Bears have the best of it - and should manage iw out-rebound the Bulldogs. Tue public school outfit, however, Is known as a team that will steal you blind, so some of the rebounding edge can also be discounted. Dick Muller of the Bears is the top rebounder in the entire area. While BUI Reding, Brian LaBarre and Joe Becker of the Bears like to commit thievery, the Algona Corps, led by Craig Espe, has no peer when it comes to hounding an offense. Garrlgan has four players, Reding, Dick Muller, LaBarre and Becker, with scoring averages in double figures and Algona High has three, Tom Claude, Espe and Gregg Betts. Claude and Espe, who were first and third in loop scoring, are the most prolific scorers with 383 and 352 points, respectively, and averages of 21.3 and 19.7, while Reding is 327, 18.2 j Muller, 291, 16.2; LaBarre, 282, 15.7; Becker, 212, 11.8; and Betts, 194, 10.8. And each club has two or three others who could turn the tide on a given night. Muller and Reding are the lead- Ing career scorers in Garrlgan's history, with 873 and 781 points, respectively. Espe and Claude have climbed among the top scorers at AHS with their 684 and 579 point totals so far. Dale Teeter, who graduated last spring, Is the all-time leader locally, with 1,191 points for a career total, 592 points In a single season and an average of 18.9 through 63 games, all top marks. Yessir, both clubs will put a lot on the line when District play opens.

SET FOR ACTION — It's Frank Sinatra with Richard Conte as they appear with lovely Vlrna Hal in Paramount Pictures' action-adventure film, "Assault On A Queen," which opens Sunday at the Algona Theatre. The Sinatra Enterprises-Seven Arts production Is a spine-chilling story of modern day piracy, involving a gang that decides to rob the Queen Mary from an old German U-boat. With the screenplay written by Rod Serllng, "Assault On A Queen" also stars Tony Franciosa, Al KjelUn and Errol John. Air Force Colonel Robert Rushworth, who received astronaut wings after flying the XI5 rocket aircraft to an altitude of nearly 55 miles in 1963, entered the Korean War service as a member of the Maine Air National Guard 132d Fighter Interceptor Squadron. Eskimo recruiters let nothing stop them when they start out to get their man. An Alaskan National Guardsman made three recruiting trips down the dangerous rapids of the Kuskokwln River in a 22-foot skiff to reach prospects and bring them back to headquarters for physical exams. ALGONA THURSDAY, FEB. 23, - ONE DAY ONLY V.F.W. BENEFIT SHOW Metro- Qoldwyn- Mayer presents a Robert Youngson Production laurel & HarOy's LaugfRng 20's" FIRST FULL- LENGTH FEATURE OF THEIR FUNNIEST MOMENTS! Now, from American Motors, the car that wasn't there. This may well be the most important news to come out of Detroit this year. A major gap has developed in today's automobile market —a gap that no American-built car is filling. Because this gap exists, over 1,000,000 car buyers a year have not been able to get the car they wanted: a car for the American motorist at a list price competitive to foreign imports. Today, American Motors' new management and nearly 2,500 American Motors/Rambler Dealers are filling that gap. As of today, we are limiting future changes in our Rambler American line to essential changes that will further enhance the safety and reliability of thesecars. This will save us millions of dollars—and we and our dealers are passing the savings along to you now. This means that the Rambler American 220 two- door sedan that yesterday listed at $2,073 now lists at $ 1,839? It means that today, your American Motors/Rambler Dealer has put new price stickers on all nine Rambler American models. For years, Rambler American has been the best value in an American automobile. Today, priced competitive to imported cars, it is the best automobile value in the world. This week on television, we promised you exciting news from American Motors. This is only the beginning.
