| MARCH 9, 1967 { mmmm* 6-Algona (la.) Upptr DM Molntt Thursday, March 9, 1967 Fenton Couple's Son On Windmill Project, India The son of a retired Fenton pastor and his wife, Rev. and Mrs. F. C. Preul, did his best for a couple of months last summer to alleviate the accute shortage of water In India. He Is Dr. Herbert C. Preul, University of Cincinnati associate professor of civil engineering, who helped design and construct a low cost, simple, Inexpensive, unconventional windmill. During his stay in India, Dr. Preul worked closely with Dr. K.D.S.R. Somayajulu of the Indian Institute of Technology at Kharagpur and K.D. Mannan of the Punjab Agricultural University at Ludhlana. The windmill has large sails which catch the wind and rotate on a vertical shaft - as compared with the windmills in the U. S., which have rotating blades on a horizontal shaft. The windmill designed in India has thin plywood sails and bamboo poles for shafts. Dr. PreuTs windmill will allow the people of India to make their DR. H. C. PREUL own with materials available. It is coupled to a well pump and in addition to pumping water, it may also be able to generate small amounts of electric power for farmers there. Rev. and Mrs. Preul have four children. All are involved in teaching. Packed Gym Crowd Saw The Wildest Games Ever FENTON - The Sentral Community School was the scene of the most spectacular game ever played on its floor, Friday even- Ing, March 3, and all who witnessed it were astonished at the stamina of the teams in the face of most amazing competition from the clowns. The girls' game was won by the alumni by a score of 44-43. High scorer for the ladies was Madonna Kramer with 20 points, and high scorer for the high school girls was Cheryl Berkland with 11 points. Half-time entertainment consisted of the sixth graders of Fenton playing the 6th graders of Lone Rock, with the Fenton teams being the champions of both 6-minute games, the girls winning by 10-4 and the boys 6-2. During the men's game, which the boys of Sentral won over the alumni men by a score of 4039, it was difficult to determine on which side one of the men's players was playing. After being fouled out of the game, Don Shaw, resigned to the bench and proceeded to play for the opposing team. After they ignored him, he decided the referees were having a hard time, so proceeded to ref until he was literally carried off the floor, first by the Sentral boys, and then by the clowns. High scorer for the boys was Randy Bierle with 7 points and high scorer for the men was Jim Meyer with 10 points. As you can see, the score wasn't the important part of the night. The clowns were shooting free throws, paying off the referees and the opposing coach, decided the leaking roof in the office needed attention, went fishing and came back with real live fish and kept taunting young couples with candy kisses. They were revealed at the first quarter of the men's game because they were literally melting under their costumes. The olowns were Mr. and Mrs. Harry Haase and Mrs. Victor Dreyer, and many people thought they were professionals. - o - The Fairville Ladies Aid met in the church parlors March 2 with Mrs. Winston Kerber and Mrs. Melvin Lauck as hostesses.
