(UDM Newsfoto bv Don Smith) GHS, AHS Footballers To Show Talent Sept. 1 Algona's two high school football squads, Algona Public and Garrigan, will furnish quite an evening's entertainment for area fans at the newly-decorated and improved Garrigan Field Friday evening, Sept. 1. And, total cost for each interested fan is only a quarter. Both squads will hold intra- squad scrimmages so followers will get a chance to study prospects for 1967. The Bulldogs and Golden Bears both open regular season play two weeks later, Sept. 15. Each school will use the equivalent of three quarters of playing time during the scrimmage sessions. Local officials will donate their time and efforts for the night- and total proceeds will be turned over, and evenly divided between pep clubs at both schools. Cheerleaders from the two high schools will operate the concession stand during the evening, and those proceeds will also be split. The session is slated to get underway at 7:30 p. m. and plans call for the same type of dress rehearsal each fall - with the site to be switched between the two schools each fall. If you're looking for a good reasonably-priced nighf s show featuring the top athletes from each local school, you can't go wrong, so make plans to attend.
