2-Algohd (la.) Upper DM Melntl Thursday, Nov. 9, 1967 That's Right! 2 Return Algona High basketball mentor, Coach Howie Stephenson, has been faced with the task of building a winning team with a lack of lettermen before, but the 1967-68 picture is a bit ridiculous. We present the picture above. Coach Stephenson is flanked by his two lettermen, Roger Meyer, left, and Tom Jones, right. Stephenson, a native Algonan, returned as varsity coach here some years ago - and as everyone knows, he has proceeded to fashion the best won-lost record ever chalked up at Bulldog-land. His combined won-lost mark is 122-49 - AND THAT'S WINNING .715 PERCENT OF THE TIME. Howie knows he's got his work cut out for him this winter- and the opening workout here Monday afternoon, with 21 lads taking part, was a rugged one, with plenty of running and lots of sweat. He will wind up with 12 men on the varsity and the balance will drop into junior varsity competition. His Bulldogs won 17 of 20 games last season, the final defeat coming in District Tournament play. Prior to 1966-67, he took two teams to the State Tournament; winnng third once and dropping an opener on the other trip to Des Moines. He has won at least three North Central crowns at the helm of the locals. Meyer was number six man and Jones number seven a year ago. Rog counted 103 points and averaged 5.2, while Jones tallied 46 for a 2.7 mark. Rich Black and Craig Taylor saw very limited duty; Black getting into seven games and Taylor two. Black scored a total of 11 points, Taylor none. They are expected to help a lot this season. Entire make-up of the squad will not be set for a few days. The team has less than two weeks to get ready for the season opener at Emmetsburg Nov. 21. The team has nine games at home and nine away during the regular season, with 14 of the frays in the conference. (UDM Flashfoto by Don Smith) raccoon, badger, skunk, opossum and civet cat. They extend statewide to midnight, Feb. 28, 1968. Beaver may be trapped from noon Dec. 16 through Feb. 28, 1968. Ringneck Count Down; Season Opens Saturday Iowa's 1967 pheasant hunting season opens Saturday morning, Nov. 11. The pheasant hunting outlook is good for most of the state, reports the State Conservation Commission, however not in this area. Hunting success is expected to equal that of 1966 when nearly a million and a half roosters were harvested. This was the highest state-wide harvest in the nation last year. And this was the second year out of the past three that Iowa had this distinction. Iowa's 1967 pheasant hunting season runs from Nov. 11 through January 1, with shooting hours from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The daily bag limit is three roosters with six in possession. Hunting over most of the state should be similar to that of last year. The best ringneck populations will again be found in the east-central and southwest parts of the state — areas that in past years have been among the tops for hunting opportunities. Though brood stock on hand last spring was one of the best in recent years, the combination of unfavorable cold and wet weather in May and June held the hatching success rate below normal in some areas - particularly in this area of the state.
