FT looks like foes of the University of Iowa had better watch out for the Hawkeyes on the gridiron a couple of years from now. Of course, all those big, burly fast prospects probably won't make their grades (or something) and will never appear in a varsity contest -but press releases from the U make the freshmen sound like something out of this world. FIRST off, take Tom Wallace. He's oolite a fullback. Hails from Houston, Texas, runs the 100 in 9.7 seconds, weighs 225 pounds and his thighs each measure 30 inches. That latter measurement is only two inches smaller than I am around the middle. He was sought by 135 colleges, but wound up at Iowa City. We hope he makes it (without injury) through all four years and really rips 'em up. Could make Iowa fans forget Leroy Keyes of Purdue. OTHERS given big billing by Iowa coaches are Bill Powell from South Carolina, 'who scored 32 touchdowns as a high school senior in 1966, while running for 1,400 yards and playing on three straight state championship teams; Denny Green, Harrisburg, Pa., labeled the best running back in Pennsylvania last fall; and Kerry Reardon from Kansas City, another halfback. All three run the hundred in less than 10 seconds. The list goes on and on- and if they can all remain in school, stay eligible and unhurt, the Hawks might yet produce under Coach Ray Nagel. He deserves a better fate. AT least one person thinks the Russians are ahead of us in space because they don't have to fight communists. into Major League baseball. DURING the stock car racing season this year we wondered what had become of Wayne Funk, popular young Humboldt pilot who competed on the track at the fairgrounds here for several years. Saw a story in the Humboldt Independent the middle of last month that told what Wayne, grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Funk, Algona, had been doing. He built a sprint car and spent some time driving with the IMC A circuit, which puts on races all around the nation. He wasn't in many events this summer, but knowing Wayne, we'll bet he'll be in the thick of it again next year. His car was pictured with the story- and it's a real neat looking job. - 1- ANOTHER great actor will be missed. Everyone who ever stepped inside a movie theater or watched TV knew Charles Bickford, who was practically always the gruff "heavy," and probably liked his portrayals. According to a friend who was near him when he died Thursday night at the age of 78 at Los Angeles, he was still "hard, strong and gruff until the end. It will be a long time before an actor is found who can play the parts he was famed for. THE largest two state universities need a lot of help, football-wise . The four year records (preceding 1967) show Iowa with nine victories, 26 losses and two ties, while Iowa State has 12 wins, 23 losses and four ties. Not impressive at all. Each team has managed to top .500 once, Iowa with a 3-3-2 record in 1963, and Iowa State with a 5-4-1 mark in 1965. The rest of the records are pretty dismal. Meanwhile, University of Northern Iowa, which had great teams when it was known as Iowa State Teachers College and State College of Iowa, continues to win more than its share of games. Good for them. GOT a note and clipping from Chase McLaughlin of Humboldt recently, the clipping from the Daily Oklahoman, Oklahoma City, a story written by a former Al- gonan, Elmer T. Peterson, dealing with the success of the famed original Algona Brownies. Mr. Peterson dealt with the popularity of the Negro team, which made a habit of beating all baseball teams in the midwest while representing Algona. He referred to the Brownies as the predecessors of the entry of Negroes APARTMENT house ad in an eastern daily: "Glare-free walls of windows invite magnificent views into every apartment." AMERICAN ingenuity? A$120- million nuclear reactor near Monroe, Mich, has been out of action for 13 months (since it was tested) because someone dropped a piece of metal in it. And there are reports that the piece of metal " is a beer can. According to reports, it's going to take another four months to get it going. They still don't have the beer can out of it and after it is removed, there will be testing, etc. before the monster is in operation. The reactor is used to generate steam, then convert it into electricity. You could buy a lot of candles with $120 million. And that doesn't include the repair bill. JUST received official announcement of the All-North Central Conference football teams for 1967. And Algona High, which was 7-1 under Coach Keith Christie, did real well. Phil Bode, center, and Randy Riedinger, halfback, were named to the first team; Tom Jones, end, Jim Utt, tackle, Mike Dreyer, guard, Roger Barr, quarterback, and Mike Betts, halfback, made the second team; and Don Hagen, tackle, Neal Smith, end, Steve Claude, guard, and Rich and Tim Black, backs, were given honorable mention. That's a total of 12 men honored. Congrats! ! Notes Of ervicemei Tuesday, Nov. 14, 1967 Algona, (la.) Upper Des Moines- 3 gists to learn more about dispersal of young foxes and the ef- fect of hunting and trapping on fox populations. BEFORE we forget it, Mrs. Earl Steier, Whittemore, called us and told of an impending visit by Al Barlick, dean of National League umpires, who planned to arrive sometime Friday (Nov. 10) at Steiers to do some pheasant hunting. We tried to make arrangements for an interview with Mr. Barlick, but at the time of this writing, Saturday, had not set it up for sure, Had high hopes we'd get a chance to talk with him.

Hunters Asked To Look For Tagged Foxes Sportsmen who are lucky enough to bag a fox while hunting this fall are urged by the State Conservation Commission to examine the animal closely for ear tags. Over 200 marked foxes are in the fields of Iowa as part of the Commission's fox movement and mortality study. They have metal tags attached to their ears bearing the message, "Notify Iowa Conservation Commission, Boone." Hunters who bag a tagged animal are asked to report it. Tagged foxes were marked at their dens this spring as part of a fox research program. Tag returns from the marked animals will enable Commission biolo- I I 1965 DODGE CORONET 4-door Sedan, 6 cyl., standard trans-I I mission, heater.
