10-Algona la.) UpfMr DM MotaM Thursday, Nov. 16, 1967 Crown Queen North Central Coaches Say Clear That's Right - // As LuVerne Has Lake Team To Beat; AHS Defends To say Coach Steve McCall, Garrigan High School basketball mentor, faces the job of rebuilding this winter is putting it far too mildly. As seen here, Steve has just one brick (but a big one) with which to start building his castle. Steve, left, looks amazed as he stands with senior Jack Muller, big (and only) returnee letterman from last year's great Garrigan team, while it would appear the latter is telling us that he has to be the greatest on the squad. While the photo was snapped in jest — it does point out that McCall's job this winter is tough. The Bears posted an 18-3 mark during 1966-67, greatest single season in the history of the school, upping McCall's career won-lost mark at the school to 44-20, with a great .688 PERCENTAGE OF WINS. The Bears got all the way to the Sub-State Tournament before absorbing loss number three last winter. Lost from that group are the top four scorers-Bill Reding, Dick Muller, Brian LaBarre and Joe Becker, plus a couple of reserves. So, it would appear that McCall is going to have to sort through the eager group he began working with Monday in an effort to build another winner. He's going to stress defense — and his past clubs have proven very adequate in that department. Muller, a 6-4 performer, seniors Kevin O'Brien, Jim Walker, Dave McCarthy and Mike Elbert; and juniors John Winkel and Tom Black are expected to carry much of the load. Jim Fickbohm, leading scorer for the junior varsity last winter, is missing due to recent surgery. The Bears have a 17-game slate, which opens at Bancroft St. John's Dec. 2. (UDM Flashfoto by Don Smith) Homecoming The 15th annual LuVerne Homecoming was held Saturday with a large crowd on hand for the festivities. Highlight of the evening was the crowning of the 1967 Homecoming Queen, Mary Hjelmeland, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peder Hjelmeland, by the reigning Queen, Rita Patterson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Max Patterson. Queen's attendants were Lauri Coyle, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Coyle and Coleen Johns, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Earl Johns. Escorts were Doug Nelson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Nelson; Duane Will, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Will; and Don Bristow, son of Mr. and Mrs. Merv Bristow. Crown Bearer was Jeanna Krause, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Howard Krause. The girls added to the success of the evening by posting a 70 to 59 win over the Palmer Panthers. Attending Homecoming were many alumni, among those present were Howard Beardsley, Algona, graduate of the class of 1905; also present were Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Hjelle and Mr. and Mrs. Beryl Martin. Mr. Hjelle and Mr. Martin are former superintendents of LuVerne school. Sweci City VFW Gives Flags To School, Town The VFW post at Swea City has donated an Iowa flag to the town of Swea City and also to the Swea City Community School. Commander George Elliott made the presentation to representatives of the school and the town at the program, "To God and my Country," by the school vocal dept. The program was held in the Swea City school Nov. 7. Following the presentation, Iowa Commander Earl L. Berg gave a talk pointing out the role the veteran has played in the American heritage. He also encouraged the citizens of the United States to demonstrate their patriotism at all times. He particularly called for support of the U. S. serviceman and especially those serving in Vietnam.

Algona Municipal Utilities 2 Letfermen Make Algona Job Tough •The coaches of the North Central pick Clear Lake>to win the championship for the 19671968 season, Webster City seems to be the pick as the challenger, with Algona and Iowa Falls dark horses. 1966-67 FINAL STANDINGS Algona 13-1 Clear Lake 11-3 Hampton 38-6 Webster City 7-7 Clarion 6-8 Humboldt 4-10 Eagle Grove 3-11 Iowa Falls 3-11 ALGONA - Coached by Howie Stephenson, who Is starting his 11 tii year as a coach and his ninth at Algona where his Bulldogs have won four conference championships and two trips to the State Tournament. Stephenson has no returning regulars from last year's team, but has fine prospects in Roger Meyer, Craig Taylor, Rich Black, Dale Rogert, Mike Betts and Dennis Richter from an excellent junior varsity squad of last season. They were strong on defense, fair shooters, but lacked height. CLEAR LAKE - Coached by Dave Long, who is starting his first year as head coach of the Lions after spending four years as assistant. Dave also coached three years prior to coming to Clear Lake. Coach Long will inherit two regulars, KenGrabinski and Bob Budolfson, from last year's runner up team. Good prospects moving up from an excellent junior varsity squad of last season are Paul Hankenson, Steve Grabinski, Wolfgang Meier, Mark Westburg, Doug Martin and Dave Pike. This group will give the Lions the tallest team in the league along with speed. How fast they mature is the determining factor. HAMPTON-Coached by veteran Jack Sogard, who is entering his 17th year-eight at Hampton. This, will be a rebuilding year for the Bulldogs who have only one regular, Tom Porter, back from last year's third place winner in the conference. Some potential athletes up from the reserves and junior varsity squad are Tom Fowler, Hal Harrison, Felix Mejia, Frank Winslow. This group will give the squad good size and rebounding, but last year they lacked good shooting. WEBSTER CITY - Coached by Fran Jones who is starting his 21st year of coaching and his 8th at Webster City-giving the Lynx four North Central championships and two trips to the State Tournament. Fran is returning this year after an absence of seven years. He inherits two regulars from last year's squad in Tim Shelton and Tim McKinney, but has four or five fine prospects that played in reserve roles last, namely Gary Biggs, Tom Osboe, Harold Parsons and Ted Williams. The Lynx should be strong on defense and if they can improve their shooting they could be one of the strong teams. CLARION - Coached by Tom Ouverson who is starting his 8th year of coaching and his third at the Corral. Coach Ouverson has two regulars returning in Scott Sims and Bob Freund, but from there it's wide open, but at the present time it looks like Bob Ward, a transfer student from Mason City, Chris Sheldon and Duane Skadburg from last year's junior varsity. The Cowboys will definitely lack heighth and experience, but should have good speed and depth. EAGLE GROVE - Coached by Joe Rupp, a veteran of 15 years, five with the Eagles where he won one championship. After a rebuilding year last year, Coach Rupp has two regulars back, Bill Smith and Mark Hogenson, and three other athletes who started or played a number of quarters in Bob Christensen, Todd Asche and Gregg Sunner, as well as a transfer from Clarion - Duane Odland and a good junior prospect, Bruce Rholl, up from the sophomores. This will give the Eagles good balance and speed, but again they will lack heighth. IOWA FALLS - Coached by Don Fuerhoff who is starting his 10th year of coaching and his third at Iowa Falls. After a rebuilding year last year, Coach Fuerhoff can be looking for better things with such regulars as Bill McCoy, Paul Peglow and Mike Ingelbritson back, along with some excellent prospects in Dave Parson, DaveDittmer, Dan Brady and Greg Brass all up from the sophomore squad of last year. The Cadets will be strong on experience with fair shooting. If they can come up with a defense, they could be a league contender. HUMBOLDT - Coached by John Westphal, his first year with the Wildcats, after spending 10 years at Albert City. Westphal inherits only one regular, a six foot, six center from last year's squad so he will have to rebuild with fine prospects from their reserve and sophomore squads from last year in Rich Cordon, Pete Rien- ertson, Rich Green, Tom Thomas and Jeff Larson. This will give the squad good size, but lacking noticeably in speed and of course experience.

Coach Cooper commended the squad on the fine 5-3 record and pointed out that the three defeats came at the hands of opponents who amassed a composite record of 22-3-1, showing that the competition was tough. ' All of the senior lettermen came into light for praise with special mention being made of Co-captains Jack Muller and Dave McCarthy, both of whom seem destined to re- ceive All-Diocesan and All-State recognition of some type. The 1968 football schedule will be the same as the 1967 schedule, with one exception, and that is Le- Mars Central High will replace Clay-Central of Royal. Coach Cooper was honored by being chosen as one of the five Iowa high school football coaches who aided the 10-man board of the ID PA in selection of All-State football players.
