don smith 2-Algona (la.) Uppdr Des Molntt Tuesday, Oct. 10, 1967 the Thunderbird (just north of Met Stadium) for World Series week, hoping the Twins would come through. When the Twins didn't, these loyal fans made the trip, stayed in the motel— and saw the World Series anyway - on TV! They didn't give up easy — and besides there's lots to see and do in the Twin Cities. LAST week's footballers Herman Wedemeyer, St. Mary's; Bob Chappuis, Michigan; Ed Bowman, AHS; Bill Shakespeare, Notre Dame; and Pug Lund, Minnesota. The five new ones, Shad Claypool, Bob Dragonette, Sam Montgomery, Brick Wolfe and Barney Ford. TAKING a tranquilizer doesn't relax me - it just makes me enjoy being tense 1 GOT a very nice letter from one of our favorite guys, Cadet Dick Muller of the Air Force Academy, last week. Followed Dick's career (and wrote reams about it) when he was a Garrigan High star and always considered him to be one of the finest young lads we've ever had the pleasure of knowing. He filled us in on his career attheAcademy-andifany of you readers think it's a soft career, forget it! It sounds tougher than the devil. His day starts at 5:30 a.m. and after a full day, freshman football practice gets started about 12 hours later. They've been practicing since Aug. 18 and were slated to meet the Colorado University freshmen last Friday. DICK hurt his back (tore some muscles) about the middle of September after being moved from tight end to tackle on the freshman first string, and had been rather inactive for a while so the STATEMENT OF OWNERSHIP, MANAGEMENT AND CIRCULATION (Act of October 23, 1962; Section 4369, Title 39, United State* Code) 1.

Walter A lot of non- baseball fans were full of chatter about the sport right after the Red Sox copped the American League pennant in the most exciting race in history and it continued through the first two games of the World Series. As this column is being written, the Sox had just evened things at 1-1 as Jim Lonborg hurled a one- hitter (wish he could have gotten a no-hitter) and Carl (The Magnificent) Yastrzemskihadpokeda pair of long home runs to dump the Cards, 5-0. YASTRZEMSKI is probably even admired by Cardinal fans, although they would like to see him in a Redbird uniform. He's the "old timer" among the Sox, who have the youngest club, age- wise, of any team in the major leagues, at 27, but seems older than that because he first came up at the age of 20 — and has been raising heck with opposing pitchers ever since. And the guy is a great outfielder as two plays during the opener proved. WE have talked to quite a number of fans who thought the Cards might take the big play-off in four games — although our dream Monday night, Oct. 2, seemed to rule that idea out In fact, our dream had the Sox winning, but couldn't figure out how many games the two teams were going to play. Isn't that a terrific way to predict the outcome of a World Series? Being a Twins fan (and proud of it, although many we ran into right after they lost the finale had already sold them out), we were happy the Red Sox could come through after a ninth place finish in 1966, The Series will always be the greatest spectacle in sports. And there were enough truly tremendous plays in just the first two games to make it worthwhile seeing. A bore is a person who talks so much about himself that you can't talk about yourself! HERE'S an interesting sidelight on Carl Yastrezemski. When he was a freshman at Notre Dame, which he attended for one year, a young man from Algona, John Hood, was also a frosh. It so happens that John, who played some baseball and basketball for St. Cecelia's while in high school here, went out for freshman baseball as did Carl. Here's the strange twist. They were among those "cut" from the squad after opening workouts — and John told us the freshman coach at ND said Yaz couldn't hit, run or throw, and besides "just doesn't look like a ball player." The varsity coach heard about Yaz being cut, got hold of the frosh mentor and ordered the now super-star put back on the squad. The rest is history. Wonder where that freshman coach is now. HEARD about one Algona couple who made reservations at back could mend, but coaches indicate he has a good chance of playing some varsity time a year from now. The other tackle on the freshmen is another lowan, John Bierie of Dubuque Wahlert. Dick said, "They pair us up one-on-one quite often and neither of us has beaten the other one badly, yet." Sure was nice getting Dick's letter, especially when he used up some very valuable (and scarce) time to write. Go get 'em, Dick! THRILLS (outside of sports) on TV don't come very often for me any more. Don't know if the shows just aren't as good as they used to be or if we've had it so many years now, the newness has worn off. Got my biggest laughs of the current season Wednesday night, Oct. 4, while watching the Kraft Music Hall. Wasn't overly en- thused by Bobby Darin and some of the guests, but one, George Carle, who I've seen a couple of times before, stood us on our head. If you happened to see the show, he's the fellow who handles his hat and feet so rapidly. - ?- ORATORY is the art of making deep sounds from the chest seem like important messages from the brain. Permits, 24 New Homes,'67, Algona According to David Smith, building permits were taken out for the building of 24 new houses in Algona during the first nine months of the year. Figures are as of October 1, and some of the homes have been completed, with others still under construction. In addition, building permits were also taken out for construction of two duplexes, one for $23,000 and the other for $28,000. A few days ago, the building permit was taken out for construction at the corner of State and Wooster Streets of the Kossuth Mutual Building, with cost at $35,000. The Cowan Corporation will be in charge of the construction. ""TRY THE UPPER DES MOINES" CLASSIFffiDS-THEY WORK! II THE FLAG IS FLYING IN MEMORY OF S/SGT. ELMER W. ALT WORLD WAR H- U. S.
