16-Algona, (la.) Upper Des Moinw Tuesday, Oct. 24, 1967 ACTION Tuesday was the last day for the seniors to turn in their ideas for the class flower, motto and color to the class officers. The final choice should be known soon. All boys interested in playing basketball this year were to sign up outside the coaches' office last week. We thought we saw Darrell Miller's name on one of the signup sheets, but it had been scratched off later. . . .he could never be a "pill bouncer." * * * Junior varsity, as you know, is undefeated with a 4-0-1 record after last week's 6-0 victory over Webster City. Steve Fitzpatrick was the big gun for the Bullpups as he scored the only TD of the game from the five yard line. Several Lynx players, real-. izing their inability tostopFitz's power, chose to get back at him by calling him "Fatty" throughout the remainder of the game... a new nickname? And the JV cheerleaders were doing a fine job despite only a small following present. * * * An assembly was held Tuesday with guest speaker Mr. Jennings presenting an interesting combination of sights and sounds of life beyond the Iron Curtain. A few years ago Mr. Jennings and several other citizens spent sometime observing the real communistic ways of Russia. * * * There was a short meeting in the industrial arts building Fri- day for all boys interested in wrestling. Only the boys who did not go out for football attended. Students finally got a little vacation last week on account of a teachers convention • in Des Moines. Part of Thursday and all day Friday were considered "take it easy" days. . .they're always welcome. Well, the Bulldogs came back from their Webster disappointment and canned the Eagles good. A few "flair ups" kept the runaway game exciting as Don Hagen added a little punch to the game. In case any of you wonder if any mischief goes on in the Algona locker room, it does. Ask Rob Claude, Steve Willrett or Mr. Camenisch. They might tell you. * * * Capital jargon words: "U- pey" - someone who is very popular; "slide" - to get away with something; "dork" - a person who behaves in a silly manner. * * * Oh, yes, in case you happen to read the signs up in the AHS halls to help boost spirit for this Friday's game, the hard art work was done by Vicki Anderson, Lynn Erickson, Jane Walker and Renee Young. * * * GO ALGONA, BEAT HAMPTON!
