In posting their 17th «ln in 19 starts (a new record for 'fins in a season by a Garrigan team), the locals had to rally late in the third period to get past the upset-minded Wildcats. And they overcame a shooting deficit from the field to do it. As is quite often true in tourney action, play was ragged at times, good at others. Humboldt got the jump right after the opening whistle asTor- gerson hit a bucket - and after the Wildcats took an 8-7 lead, Garrigan fans trembled as the sixth place North Central Conference club, with Doug Marso leading the way, suddenly found itself enjoying 18-10 and 19-11 leads. A lay-up by Bill Reding of the Bears chopped the edge to 19-17 as the period ended and the locals appeared to be on their way. Humboldt, however, stayed on top until Dick Muller hit a hook shot to knot the count at 24-24, then Moose canned a jumper to give the Bears their first lead, 26-24, with 4:56 left in the half. Brian LaBarre accounted for eight counters, Dick Muller seven and Joe Becker five as Garrigan held the upper hand at halftime, 38-33. Humboldt scared the daylights out of the Bears one more time right at the start of the third round, hitting its first seven field goal attempts on the way to 45-41, 47-42 and 49-44 leads. All the Wildcats got into the act, with Rick Kuhlman leading -the way with 11 points in the "quarter. Garrigan pecked away, though, and with Jim Youngwirth hitting a free throw, LaBarre a longie and Dick Muller a shortie, knotted the count at 49-all. Humboldt led three more times by one point, but a couple of fielders by LaBarre ushered the Bears to a 58-56 edge at the three-quarter mark. Humboldt went ahead, 60-58, as the final stanza got underway, but Reding hit a field goal and free toss, LaBarre a field goal and two free throws and Don Courtney a couple - and Garrigan had a 69-60 lead with 4:50 left. Coach Steve McCaU called for the stall offense with 4:20 remaining - and it was all over but the shouting. The Bears were cool from the field and hot from the free throw line in this one. They shot 28 percent in the first half and 40 in the second to 32 and 54 percent for the Wildcats and -""1 It was rugged under the boards during the Algona - Forest City District Tournament contest here Monday night as the Bulldogs turned loose a rugged defense to post an easier-than- expected, 62-46, victory.

Betts topped all rebounders in the game with 13 and also Joined Craig Espe and Tom Claude of the Bulldogs for scoring honors with 15 points. (UDM Graphic- Polaroid Photos) wound up with an over-all record of 34 percent hits to 41 for the losers. However, 22 of 28 free throws found the mark. A 41-29 bulge in rebounds, with Dick Muller getting 13 and Reding 11, helped a lot. Marso nabbed nine and Kuhlman seven for the losers. ... .Garrigan was in foul trouble at. halftime, but lost only the two Mullers, Dick and Jack - and late enough in the fray so the Wildcats had no chance at a comeback. LaBarre returned to mid- season shooting form, notching 26 big points to easily lead both clubs in scoring. Garrigan (72) FG FT F Reding D. Muller LaBarre Becker J.

Tuesday. The family did manage to save some belongings. According to firemen, the house was considered a total loss — and exact cause of the blaze, which got its start when the family was away, is not known. The amount of damage has not been estimated. Firemen were at the scene for 1 1/2 hours. The blaze got its start in the northeast corner of the structure, which was well-insulated. It spread throughout after some furnishings, clothing and varied other items were removed to an apartment next door and burned through the floor, spreading into the basement. Smoke was billowing from the structure by the time firemen arrived and they had little chance to extinguish the fire before extensive damage occurred. Two Algona Women Hurt Legs In Falls Two Algona women sustained leg injuries in falls at their homes Tuesday night. Mrs. Floyd Holt was taken to Park Hospital, Mason City, after she slipped on ice in front of the Holt residence and fell after the Holts arrived home from a basketball game. She sustained a broken leg. Mrs. Cy Venteicher suffered a bad leg sprain in a fall down some steps in their home. She was treated at St. Ann hospital and released. Minpr Crash A minor 2-car mishap a mile north of Algona on highway 169 at 3:50 p. m. Tuesday resulted in an estimated $225 damage to vehicles driven by Mary H. Cogley, 23, Spirit Lake, and Janet K. Cherland, 17, Burt. Both vehicles were headed south when they approached a school bus, which was stopped, headed north. The Cherland vehicle struck the rear of the other machine, Deputy Sheriff Eppo Bulten investigated. First-Half Tax Payments Due By March 31 Taxpayers in Kossuth county (like all other Iowacounties)have until March 31 to pay the first half of their personal and real estate taxes, according to Treasurer Don Jorgenson. Second half taxes become delinquent after Sept. 30 this year. Rate of penalty on taxes until they are paid is three-fourths of one percent per month. And a five percent assessment is added on personal taxes not paid on or before the first Monday in December, in addition to the three-fourths of a percent penalty. Taxes paid before the two deadlines, March 31 and Sept. 30, will not carry any penalty. Defense Puts Bulldogs Past Forest City As expected, Forest City won the battle of the rebounds - but Algona's Bulldogs held a decided defensive margin and zipped to an easy 62-46 victory over the Indians in the opening game of the Class AA District Basketball Tournament before a huge crowd at Garrigan Fieldhouse Monday night. The victory moved Coach Howie Stephenson's club, which upped its season mark to 17-2, into the finals of the meet tonight (Thursday) at 7:30 p.m. Forest City went out of tourney action with a 12-7 record. It was touch-and-go for about 18 minutes - then the same type of play that has accounted for most of the club's wins this season allowed the Bulldogs to tuck the victory away. And the defense won it - forcing the Indians into passing and dribbling errors that actually decided the outcome. Forest City started out on top, 4-0, but when Craig Espe canned Algona's first field goal with almost two minutes gone, the fuse was lit and the locals took on the look of winners. Thanks to Brocke Laws, who banged in three fielders, Espe, who got two and Bill Boldridge with one, plus the rebounding of Gregg Betts, Laws and Boldridge, Algona managed a slim lead throughout the first period - and it was 13-12 after eight minutes. A drive-in by Boldridge put the lead on the board. Erratic shooting, which plagued both clubs much of the time, slowed both offenses and fouls threatened to make shambles of both clubs during the second stanza. Algona put the game away during a third quarter surge that found everyone but Laws getting points. And Claude, who hadn't hit from the field, got his first two-pointer with almost seven minutes gone as the Bulldogs posted a 47-31 bulge at the three- quarter mark. Betts and Boldridge were rugged under the boards during that eight minutes - and their work, plus six points by Betts, five by Espe, four by Claude and three by Boldridge, led the spurt. Algona got nine straight points after the Indians chopped the lead to 30-25 and closed out the round with another six point blast to put the game out of reach. There wasn't much shooting by the Bulldogs during the final eight minutes, as Stephenson put the club into its stall offense with five minutes left, and the frantic efforts of the Indians proved to no avail. Only the free throw- Ing of Danny Schmidt allowed Forest City a 15-15 tie during the quarter. Several times during the contest, Algona attempts at lay-ups proved to be like a run through the kill at a slaughter house and seldom, if ever, have more players littered the floor than in Ms one. Claude had trouble from the field all night, but he canned 11 of 11 free throws and wound up with Espe and Betts as the leading scorers for the Bulldogs with 15 points each. Laws added eight and Boldridge seven. A statement credited to Forest City Coach Herb Konigsmark, something to the effect that there were four teams in the North Iowa Conference who could beat the Bulldogs, may have had something to do with the hustle shown by the locals - and it paid off with the win!
