12—Algona (la.) Upper De* Moinei Tuesday, Nov. 14, 1967 Muller Tops Garrigan Club On Offense With 884 Yards While the 1966 team posted the finest record ever at the school,, the 1967 Garrigan Golden Bears have to rank with the greatest clubs produced by Coach Beanie Cooper - because the thin line of talent managed to wind up with a fine 5-3 record. Using the minimum of talent available at the start of the fall, Cooper and his top aide, Coach Steve McCall, got complete cooperation from every lad on the squad - the result being a better- thsuHcould-be-expected season. Getting to the statistics that produced victories five out of eight times out of the barn, the Bears managed to out-gain the opposition, 2,151-1,538, rushing and passing, with a 1,684-1,237 edge on the ground and a 407304 bulge in the air, thanks to the late-found talents of Tom Froehlich, sophomore quarterback who is sure to be one of the great ones in a couple of years. Leading the ground forces again this season was senior fullback Jack Muller. He raised his 2-year total past the 2,000-yard mark with 884 during '67. He lugged the pigskin 175 times (about 22 times each game) and averaged 5.1 yards per try. Mike Schiltz, who learned a lot with the junior varsity a year ago, turned into a fine senior halfback. His skittery jaunts through and around the opposition added up to 594 yards. He carried 120 times and averaged 4.9. Coach Cooper would like to have both of those boys back next fall - as well as some of the others. Froehlich was minus eight yards on the ground, but flipped 29 of 63 passes (46 percent) complete for 362 yards, winding up with a net of 354. Tom Black, junior quarterback-wingback, ran for 42 yards and added 105 through the air for a total of 147 and John Mertz, senior full- bigik, got 109 yards in 39 carries |Si a 2.8 average. A few youngsters also carried the ball for short yardage during the season. The Bears outscored the opposition, 174-97, with Schiltz the top scorer on the basis of 10 touchdowns and seven points after for 67 total points. Muller was next with nine TDs and nine points after for 63 points; then came John Winkel, three TDs, 18 points; Black, two TDs and one point after, 13; Mertz, one TD, six; and Pat Nugent, one point after. The club also managed three safeties, chalked up by the defense. Schiltz was also the top pass receiver, nabbing 14 for 135 yards, while Muller caught 11 for 173 yards; Winkel, 7-66; Phil Richter, 4-56; and Black, 4-37. The Bears held the upper hand in every statistic at the end of the season, from first downs through total yardage gained. Here are the figures; G Opp. First downs 107 72 Passes 93-40 64-20 Yds. passing 467 304 Passes int. by 12 3 Yds, int. ret. 138 56 Fumbles lost 9 13 Yds. penalized 312 179 Yds. rushing 1684 1237 Tot. yds, gained 2J51 1538 The defensive battalion was led by a crusty group that gave up yardage grudgingly most of the time - a factor that was very important as far as the team's showing was concerned. According to Cooper and McCall, top effort by the line on offense and defense must share the credit for the club's fine 1967 record. Though the 1966 team finished with a better won-lost mark, with some of this year's seniors playing an important role, the '67 Bears have to be given a lot of credit for a perhaps better-than- expected finish. To the Bears, congratulations I LuVerne Boys, Girls Should sides the six letter winners, Barbara Hurlburt, Becky Coyle and a group of youngsters should make the Lionettes a stronger club during 1967-68. They opened their season Saturday night, hosting Palmer. Besides those mentioned above, other candidates on the boys team are Larry Curry, David Ristau, Terry Vaudt, and Terry Warmbier. First outing for the boys is tonight (Tuesday) when they host the Buffalo Center Bison. Okay Contracts With I Towns, Be Rugged Ambulances Coach Bryce Wickett greeted a total of 12 letter winners, six boys and six girls when basketball drills opened there recently- and he's optimistic over prospects for winning seasons. Boys returning from last year's good club which won 15 and lost six are Doug Nelson, 6-2 1/2 senior forward, Duane Will, 6-2 1/2 senior guard, forward, Donald Bristow, 6-2 junior center-forward, Dennis Barber, 5-8 junior guard, Ronnie Wolf, 5-9 junior guard, and Barry Selby, 5-10 junior forward. Girls returning are Laurie Coyle, senior guard, Mary Hjelmeland, senior forward, Michele Coyle, junior forward, Connie Hefty, junior guard, Kris Meyer, junior guard, and Linda Wilhelm, sophomore forward. Wickett is especially high on Nelson and Will. They will be joined by Don Bristow as certain starters, while Wolf, Barber, Lee Schipull, Paul Swanson, and LeRoy Hanson are expected to battle it out for the other two spots. The girls have good size and speed, and according to their coach should be able to correct some of the mistakes that cost them victories last winter. Be- In special session at 1 p.m. Friday at the courthouse, the board of supervisors approved a contract for joint ambulance agreement, drawn up by W. B. (Bing) MacDonald, county attorney, who appeared before the board to explain the contract. Thus, ambulance service, in addition to such service offered to residents of the county by the city of Algona, is virtually assured. The contract will necessitate approval of the city councils of Titonka and LuVerne. The agreement will apply between the towns of Titonka and LuVerne and Kossuth county. It was made necessary because some funeral directors in the county had ceased operation and maintenance of ambulance service. LuVerne and Titonka desire to maintain an ambulance, not only for residents of the two towns, but also for residents of the county, which would benefit by such operation and maintenance. Titonka and LuVerne being financially unable to provide the entire cost of the purchase, operation, maintenance and insurance of an ambulance, the joint service between the towns and county plans to make efficient use of their power by enabling STARTS WEDNESDAY, NOV. 15th ONE COMPLETE SHOWING STARTING AT 8 P.M.

WAI.TKK MIRISCII I'ROmVTIOS of "HAWAII" the towns and county to provide a joint service. They are authorized under Iowa law "to purchase, lease, equip, maintain and operate an ambulance or ambulances to provide necessary and sufficient ambulance service or to contract for such vehicles, equipment, maintenance or service." Under the proposed contract and agreement mutually agreed to by both towns and the county, the agreement would become effective upon filing with the Iowa Secretary of State and the Kossuth county recorder. It would be effective from the date of such filing until six months after Jan. 2, 1968, or after satisfactory evidence furnished by each town that it has purchased and is ready to operate a qualified ambulance has been accepted, which ever event occurs last. The agreement would continue for additional six- month periods thereafter. Prior to the expiration of any six-month period during which the contract is in effect, either party may notify the other party in writing of intention to terminate or amend the agreement for the following six-month period, with the notice to be served at least 30 days prior to a meeting of the town and county board. Titonka and LuVerne would agree to respond to calls and to provide ambulance service for" residents of the county, with the understanding that if other ambulances or emergency rescue units are operating in the county at a point closer to those needing the ambulance service, that either town would first make an effort to contact the closer unit. When making ambulance calls, the ambulance will have at least two adequately trained personnel, and each town further would agree to hold periodic training sessions in first aid for the personnel, with such sessions at least four times a year. Each town would agree to purchase and maintain liability insurance, with minimum policy limits of $100,000 per person and $300,000 per accident, with the policy to name both the county and LuVerne and Titonka as insured, including all agents and employees of both parties. Each town would act as agent for the county in collecting for the county the sum of $20 per ambulance call arid 50 cents a mile, one-way, from those individuals that use and are transported in the ambulance. An accounting would be submitted at the end of each six-month period, showing calls and charges made. The county has agreed that at the time it accepts as satisfactory evidence that the towns of LuVerne and Titonka have pur- . chased and are ready to operate an ambulance service, the county will pay each town $1,000 plus $50 per month. The $1,000 payment is not to be renewed or repeated regardless of the duration of the agreement. Purpose of this payment is to assist the towns in setting up the ambulance service and to help defray initial expenses. "Love-In" Pair Of Carrots Produced Here A pair of "love-in" carrots were produced this year in the garden of Bill Hammond, Algona. When Mr. Hammond dug his carrots recently, he uncovered a pair that present one of the strangest looking conglomerations this office had ever seen.
