Garrigan Bears Coast In 27-0 Win Show Power In 2nd Half For Third Win The last-half passing wizardry of sophomore Tom Froehlich, combined with the receiving of Jack Muller and John Winkel, allowed Garrigarfs Golden Bears to climb over a pile of red flags and gain a 27-Ovictory over Emmetsburg Catholic there Friday night. The win was the second straight for Coach Beanie Cooper's club and upped the season mark to 3-2. A long trip to Carroll Kuemper Friday is next up for the locals, who would like to avenge a 24-7 defeat here last fall-only loss in eight games for the Bears in 1966. Misfortune plagued the Bears throughout the first half at Emmetsburg and the Irish were able to hang on for a 0-0 tie after 24 minutes. Four 15-yard penalities and one of five resulted in two touchdowns being called back and on consecutive plays midway through the second stanza, passes to men in the clear were dropped- so the Cooper-men were thwarted at every turn. The fact that the Bears had rolled up 111 yards rushing and passing, while holding the home club to 32, failed to impress the Scoreboard. • Things got better in a hurry after the intermission. It took just 3 1/2 minutes for quarterbacks Tom Black and Froehlich to engineer a 58-yard march that paid off with points. The running of Mike Schiltz ate up most of the ground to the Irish 30, then Froehlich fired and hit Muller with a 17-yard pitch to the 13. After Black slammed for four yards, Froehlich found Winkel alone in the end zone for the TD. Schiltz skirted end for the point after, making it 7-0. Winkel scored the next time he got his hands on the ball-just two plays later, and the count went quickly to 14-0 when Muller hammered for the point after. Bill Brennan faded to pass on a play following the kickoff after the Bears' first touchdown, but Winkel sliced in front of an intended receiver, fielded it on the Irish 40 and sprinted for the score. Garrigan was deep in Irish territory near the end of the period, but couldn't tally, so they waited until late in the fourth to tack the other pair of six pointers on the board. A third touchdown was called back early in the fourth when Froehlich pitched to Muller from the 21. The late scores followed another pair of interceptions (the Bears came up with six, with Dave McCarthy getting two and Black, Winkel, Muller and Kevin O'Brien one each). McCarthy snared a Brennan pass and returned to the Irish 13 to set up the first counter. After Schiltz went two, Froehlich connected with Winkel for the TD. This time, Schiltz was stopped on the extra point try. That made it 20-0, Three plays later, McCarthy was Johnny on the spot again, fielding a Brennan pass on the Irish 45 and returning it to the 22. It took Garrigan only three plays to move into touchdown-land. The first play was a dandy, Froehlich passed to Muller, who barely got his fingertips on the ball on the 10, It bounced through the air and Phil Richter made the catch on the seven, Froehlich hit Schiltz for four and a penalty put the ball on the two from where Schiltz scored. Froehlich passed to Black for the extra point, running the count to 27-0. Considering the odds (and a hustling Irish defense that was adequate), the Bears came up with quite a victory. The defensive effort of the line, led by Muller, O'Brien, McCarthy and Joe Detrick, forced Brennan to fire before ready and the resulting interceptions turned the tide. They also added thrills to a game that was slowed to a standstill several times by penalties. Garrigan's air attack was tops for the season — and was a surprise to most of the fans as it was to the Irish, with Froehlich throwing and Muller, who hadn't caught a pass (or been sent after one) this fall, gathering in seven for 100 yards. Young Froehlich hit 12 of 19, with Schiltz, Winkel and Richter coming up with catches. Black hit two of five for another 15 yards. On the ground, it was all Schiltz. The Water Bug skittered through and around the losers for 120 yards in 28 carries for a 4.3 average. Garrigan's net on the ground was exactly what Schiltz gained. Jim KLiegl was Catholic's best bet as he managed 54 yards in 11 carries, three more yards than the team's net gained during the fray. Official statistics: G E First downs 11 5 Passes 24-14 19-5 Yds.

Upper Des Moines-13 Here Are Tips Designed For Children's Safety Your elementary school children probably have some bad habits when it comes to traffic safety. In fact, they may have already experienced some near accidents on their way to or from school this year, but they just didn't tell you about it. Traffic accidents are the leading cause of death for the elementary school child in America. And most of the children die from being struck or run over by a vehicle. If your child hasn't developed traffic safety habits, he has a greater chance of becoming one of this year's victims. You could save his life by acting now to teach him those safety measures which to you must seem quite obvious and common sense. Let us quickly mention them. SAFEST ROUTE - Help your child choose the safest route to school, the one with the fewest streets to cross. Look for inter- sections with traffic signals or school safety patrols. Show your child why this route is the best way for him to travel even though another route may be a little shorter. Repeat the route and instructions often enough so that your child goes this way by habit. COOPERATION - Teach your child the importance of cooperating with the bus driver, police and school safety patrols. CROSSING - Be sure your child knows the meaning of a traffic light and that he walks only at the beginning of a green light. Teach him to look all directions before crossing the street, even though the light is in his favor. Tell him to be on the lookout for cars turning the corner. Show him how to cross at an unguarded intersection, and tell him why it is unwise to step into the street from between two parked cars. Advise him to cross the street only at corners. TIME - Be sure your child is dressed in plenty of time to walk safety, not run, to school. Convince him to walk and not run across the street. Impress upon your child the necessity of going directly to and from school. BICYCLES - Before you allow your child to have a bicycle, be sure he is ready to handle one. Teach him to be a responsible bicycle rider, to obey all traffic signals, keep to the right, ride in single file and not weave in and out of traffic. A little effort on your part now could make a big difference in the future. Remember, the traffic safety habits a child forms will be with him when he later climbs behind the wheel of an automobile.
