Seller Drafted By Jets Paul Seller, 1963 Garrigan High School graduate who was a regular offensive tackle on Notre Dame's great football team last fall, proved to be the 12th most sought after footballer in the nation Tuesday when he was picked by the New York Jets in the first round of the combined National and American Football League player draft at New York City. Should Seller come to terms with the Jets and join them for the 1967 season, he would be a member of one of the top young teams in the AFL- and a teammate of the very well- known Joe Namath, former All-American at Alabama who became the club's quarterback after signing a $400,000 bonus contract. At the conclusion of the 1966 season, Seller told the UDM that he had received questionnaires and inquiries from practically all of the professional football clubs in the nation. He did not play in any of the collegiate^ all-star games after the season because athletic officials at Notre Dame were hoping to 'get permission for Seller to compete another year for the Irish, who were ranked number one in the nation last fall. Seller was an outstanding football player for Garrigan Coach Beanie Cooper prior to graduation here. He is a son of Mrs. Elizabeth Seller, rural Algona, and called her Monday noon, right after a representative of the Jets' front office had contacted him, notifying him of his selection by the club. Mrs. Seller told the UDM that Paul was not sure just what he will do until he gets an opportunity to talk with club officials. He did not mention any bonus or any other details, because he does not have all the information yet. Seller has been invited to spend his Easter break from Notre Dame with members of the Jet management at Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Another ex-Garrigan football player, Lyle Loebach, Whittemore, was signed by the San Francisco 49ers after his graduation from Simpson College a year ago and was on that club's taxi squad last fall. | St. Edmond Is Debate Winner At Garrigan St. Edmond High School, Ft. Dodge, walked off with the honors in the diocesan CYO debate tourney held at Garrigan High School March 12, as they debated the limitation of foreign aid to nonmilitary assistance. The Ft.

Heelan debaters, Mike Ellwanger, Penny Harris, Steve Kennedy and Anthony Kelly, totaled three wins, five losses. Pocahontas Catholic and Garrigan tied with a two-six record. Bill Brenny, Dave Lenz, Juanita Wagner and Mary Yocum made up the Pocahontas team. Patricia Besch, Tom McGuire, Ron Gilbride and Mark Prieskorn represented Garrigan. Judges included Lee Beem, Emmetsburg High School; Rev. Gerald Hartz, Spalding; Rev. David Hogan, Pocahontas; Rev. Ronald Naser, Heelan; Gerald O'Meara, St. Edmond; andTer- rance Sexton, Kuemper.

Ask Replacement Of 3 Narrow U.S. 169 Bridges Replacement of three narrow bridges on U.S. highway 169, south of Algona, is being considered within the next five years, the State Highway Commission has informed State Senator Don Murray. The .replacement cost would be about $250,000 for each bridge, the Commission letter states, which includes about $130,000 for each bridge and $120,000 for approach work. The bridges in question are the only bridge on U. S. 169 between U.S. 30 and the Minnesota line which are less than 24 feet wide. Widening of the existing structures is impossible because of their truss construction. In other words, being built the way they were, they become practically scrap, and we start all over. Replacement of the bridges, the Commission letter noted, would require that U. S. 169 be closed for an entire construction season.
