FOOTBALL DRILLS SET AT AHS, GHS Christie Will Greet Eight Lettermen Drills for Algona High's Bulldog gridders will begin Monday morning August 21, with practices limited to T-shirts and gym shorts. The squad, estimated to be over 70 strong, will have morning sessions at 8 and afternoon workouts at 2. Full equipment will be worn for the first time Thursday, Aug. 24, which has been designated as Press Day. Eight lettermen will form the nucleus for Coach Keith Christie's squad this year. They include two-year lettermen Tom Jones, Don Hagen and Rich Black, all seniors, and returning letter winners from last year's team, Mike Dreyer, Jim Utt, Randy Riedinger, Roger Barr, and Phil Bode (who is the only junior letterman). The others will be seniors this fall. Key positions vacated by graduation from the 1966 squad are offensive ends, guards, and halfbacks plus the complete defensive backfield. Gone from last year's hard-nosed Bulldog team are ends Chris Conn, Tom Claude, and Brocke Laws, tackle Dave Camp, guards Clint Young, Larry Munger, Max Miller, and Dave Gerber, halfbacks Steve Waller and Greg Betts, quarterback Bill Boldridge (who was sidelined the whole season with a foot injury) and fullback Bob Farnham. The coaching staff includes new varsity assistant Jim Welton, a graduate of Morningside, fresh- soph coaches Don Camenisch and Lynn Kueck, and junior high mentors Bill Simpson and Jerry Payne. The 1967 football schedule looks like this: Sept. 15 —Emmetsburg—Here Sept. 22 - Clarion - Homecoming Sept. 29 - Iowa Falls - There Oct. 6 - Humboldt - There Oct. 13- Webster City- Here Oct. 20- Eagle Grove - There Oct. 27 - Hampton - Here A general information meeting for parents who have boys trying out for the team (at the high Mishaps Spice Race Program The first of two stock car programs at the Kossuth County Fair Tuesday night (the Championship will be held Friday) attracted 1,500 persons - and drivers responded with a real hectic set of six races. Del Stokke of Ames copped the A feature, outdistancing Gene Schattschneider and Butch Householder of Algona. Householder earlier won the trophy dash and third heat, while Schattschneider copped second in the first heat and trophy dash. A relative newcomer, Ken Batt, Algona, captured the first heat, giving him his first victory here, while Vance Hakes, Clear Lake, took the second heat. Jim Edgington of Algona drove to victory in the B feature. The two photos above illustrate some of the goings-on during the night. At the left, Mike Elbert, at right with helmet, Emmetsburg, is shown surveying damage to Us car which flipped off the south end of the track during the B feature and rolled several times before coming to a stop on its wheels. Mike got out without a scratch- but took a ride he will long remember. The car was smashed. At the right, Bud Petersen's car is righted for a trip to the pit area after it flipped during the third heat. It wound up on its side in the middle of the north turn. Bud wasn't even shaken up, but the car sustained extensive damage. With a $1,000 guaranteed purse for the big finale Friday night, more thrills and spills are certain to punctuate the program.

Algona Municipal Utilities The directors started work on the membership drive which will start around Sept. 1.

The catches were made on an aritlficial lure. 7 Returnees Will Report At Garrigan Coach Beanie Cooper, who has been at the helm since the school first opened its doors, will greet candidates for the 1967 edition of the Garrigan Golden Bears football team — with seven lettermen from last fall's great club listed on the early statistical sheet. The Bears will hold their first practice session Monday, Aug. 21, after Coach Cooper and other members of his staff meet with parents of all football aspirants at the school the preceding evening at 8 p.m. in the school cafeteria. The coaches-parents coffee has become an annual event there. Candidates will receive equipment later this week, but won't be allowed to wear pads and full equipment until Aug. 24—then the workouts will get rugged. Practice sessions will be held twice daily until school opens — from 8:30 a.m. for two hours and from noon to 1:30 p.m. Freshman football practices will open Sept. 4. Coach Cooper says that while he has just seven letter winners back, all are good football players with plenty of game experience - and he feels the club is better off at the start than it has been other years with more lettermen. Heading the list of returnees is Jack Muller, senior fullback and linebacker, who managed to gain 1,073 yards last fall in 181 carries during the eight games. Cooper rates him as a top prospect for All-State and a future college prospect. Jack tips the scales at 215, is 6-4 and one of two co-captains this fall. The other co-captalnisanother rugged lad, Dave McCarthy, senior lineman who packs a lot of wallop in his 6-foot, 175-pound frame. Four other seniors, Jerry Plathe, back; Bill Richter andjCevin O'Brien,linemen; Tom yEiia'ck, back; and John Winkel, 'junior split end, round out the list. Plathe is 5-8, 180; Richter, 5-8, 150; O'Brien, 5-11, 165; Black, 5-10, 150; and Winkel, 5-11, 165. Black got in a little time behind Bill Reding at quarterback last year and will undoubtedly get a shot at the same spot this year. John Mertz and Mike Schiltz, backs, and lineman Mike Welp are rated other top prospects. Reding, big Dick Muller and HURRY! JUST A FEW LEFT!
