Bears, Bulldogs Travel To Eagle Grove Friday Garrigan's Golden Bears opened their dual track season with a 95-38 loss to a strong Humboldt team there Wednesday afternoon. Coach Beanie Cooper's team managed only two firsts in 16 events. Dave McCarthy went 5-8 to grab the high jump and also tied for first in the half-mile in a 2:10.8 clocking. The mile relay team, Joe Becker, Bill Reding, John Winkel and Tom Black, won that event in 3:43.3. Black and Winkel were outstanding as the Bears took second in the 2-mile relay, each posting a 2:09 clocking. The Bears also managed a lot of seconds and thirds, but didn't threaten the Wildcats, who are always one of the top teams in the area. At the Holstein Relays Friday, the Bears failed to place, although they managed to edge Carroll Kuemper and LeMars Gehlen in a couple of events. - o- BULLDOGS HOST SWEA CITY TUESDAY Algona High School's track team will host Swea City's Trojans in the first dual meet of the season for the locals at the Athletic Field today (Tuesday) at 4:30 p.m. Coach Don Camenisch and his team will then travel to the Eagle Relays at Eagle Grove Friday for a taste of real rugged competition. Camenisch said Saturday that time trials in various events held Friday were very disappointing- but pointed out that most of the distance men on the squad are freshmen and sophomores. He slated a short workout Monday preceding the Swea City event. The weather has not cooperated too well so far, also slowing down efforts to get into shape for the season. Interest in track by squad members has been good to date, but a lot of work is needed by practically the entire team. There are seven lettermen among the 95 boys out for track here. They are Bill Boldridge, senior; Rich Black, Dean Teeter and Mike Dreyer, juniors; and Rod Rogert, Larry Taylor and Phil Bode, sophomores.

Thieves Enter Local Firm Second Time For the second time in 17 days, a break-in occurred at Ernie Williams John Deere store on highway 18 just east of the city limits here. The latest effort by culprits was discovered late Wednesday morning, April 5, apparently taking place the night before - and a tray of tools, valued at $40 was taken. ' Entrance was gained after prying the south door on the north shop building. The lock was sprung and the theft was not discovered right away April 5. There was nothing else disturbed, according to Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst who investigated. The same night, an attempt to pry open the rear door at North Iowa Appliance here netted nothing for the would-be thieves. They couldn't get the door open, so didn't manage to get inside. According to the sheriff, it is logical to assume the same culprits visited both places Wednesday night. The John Deere store was broken into the night of March 18 and an estimated $1,000-1,200 worth of tools in a chest and tool case were taken. That time, a glass was broken out of a door, making it possible to reach in and unlock it. Other items and cash were taken during the March 18 weekend at three other places in this area. The sheriff and a state agent investigated those thefts. Fenton Club Will Feature M-C Surgeon Special feature of the April 18 meeting of the Fenton Town and Country Women's Club will be a talk by Dr. John K. MacGregor, well-known Mason City surgeon.

Vernon, and took his medical training at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University, New York City. His internship was at the University of Iowa, then military service was followed by surgery residency at the University of Wisconsin. Dr. MacGregor is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and the Iowa Academy of Surgery. His talk is certain to be of interest to all. Schwartz Rites Are Held At Fenton Friday Funeral services for Jacob A. Schwartz, 78, well-known longtime resident of Fenton, were held in the Methodist church there Friday at 2 p.m. Rev. Russell Eldridge officiated and burial followed at the church cemetery there, with Thomas Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
