Mishaps Plague Area '* - ••• " 10-Algona la.) Upper Dw Moin«i Thursday, Nov. 30, 1967 Unbeaten Bulldogs To Eagle Grove Mat Meet Algona High School's wrestling ttam, unbeaten in a pair of dual meets, will travel to Eagle Grove for that school's annual Invitational Tournament this Saturday. The meet is always one of the toughest on the slate for Coach Champ Martin's team. The Martin-men dumped Britt, 36-5, and Blue Earth, 37-13, last week and after those two outings could send seven grapplers with 2-0 marks into the heat of battle at Eagle Grove. Undefeated in the openers are Gary Gade, 95, Darrell Miller, 120, Steve Claude, 127, Randy Riedinger, 133, Don Camp, 145, Phil Bode, 154, and Bruce Bennett, 165. Bennett posted falls in his two matches, while Claude and Camp each have one fall so far. Brad Farnham has a one win, one draw mark so far at heavyweight and his victory was also a fall. So far, the locals have won 19 matches, dropped only four and had one draw in the two dual meets. Seven of the wins have been pins and half of the defeats have been by the same means. Records of others who have wrestled in both meets so far include RussBird, l-l,andDenny Petersen, 1-1. Rob Claude and Larry Taylor are 1-0. Martin expects competition at Eagle Grove to be plenty rugged- as is usually the case at that meet. A rash of auto mishaps was reported in this area during the weekend. Fortunately, in Kossuth county at least, the injury (or death) rate did not keep up percentage-wise with the frequency rate. Two persons were injured quite seriously. Both mishaps were reported in the Tuesday issue of the Upper Des Moines. Drivers of the cars, which were involved in one-car mishaps, were Milton Bilyeu, 40, Algona, and Paula Day, 22, Forest City. Mr. Bilyeu is reportedly progressing toward recovery at Veterans Hospital, Des Moines, and Mrs. Day is doing the same at a Mason City hospital. The Day auto is shown above. It leaped over a road at an intersection near Titonka and came to rest on a fence as seen here in a photo by Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst. The driver sustained multiple fractures of the face and lacerations. And the car, as seen here, was demolished. A pickup driven by William J. Erpelding, 50, Algona, and an auto driven by Lila E. Beckman, 78, Iowa City, collided on North Main street here at 10 a. m. Monday. The pickup was headed north and the auto south at the time. The Iowa City driver told investigating police that her auto struck a piece of ice and dirt combined and pulled the car into the other vehicle. Damage was estimated at $135. A 3-car crash was investigated by Patrolman Charles Bird at St. Joe Sunday at 9:45 a. m. Drivers of the autos were Sverre H. Hammer, 28, Ottumwa, James A. GJrrei;, 21, Graettinger, and Patricia A. Reding, 21, Bode. The Reding auto was turning right, the Hammer car slowed to yield the right-of-way, and was hit in the rear by the Girres car and in turn the Reding auto was struck. Damage totaled $850 and Girres was charged with a speed restriction violation. An auto driven by Herman J. Baedke, 70, Granada, Minn., and a pickup driven by John R. Geerdes, 65, Swea City, collided at 11:45 a. m. Sunday a mile north of Swea City at a county • road intersection, resulting in an estimated $225 damage to the vehicles and a stop sign charge against M. Geerdes. Sheriff Lindhorst investigated. Two mishaps were reported here Saturday. The first occurred at 9:51 a. m. when cars driven by Louis L. Lappe, 24, Lakota, and Otto B. Laing, 65, Algona, collided as the latter backed from a parking spot on Kennedy street. Damage to the autos amounted to $195 and the Algona driver was charged with improper backing by city police. At 10:20 a. m., an auto driven by Philip M. Goetz, 52, Wesley, slid across North Main street here and struck a pair of utility posts near the ASCS office. Damage to the auto was estimated at $200 by police. Bulldogs Thump Swea City; Put 2-0 Mark On Line Friday For years, Algona-Swea City basketball games have been interesting — and the fray there Tuesday night before a full house proved to be no exception, even though the Bulldogs slammed out a 67-46 victory over the smaller Trojans. The win was the second for the locals without a defeat and setup the first North Central Conference contest of the young season with Eagle Grove here Friday night. And there's plenty of rivalry between these two clubs, too. It should be an interesting evening 1 Size proved to be the major difference between Algona and Swea City. Superiority under the boards, where the charges of Coach Howie Stephenson nabbed twice as many rebounds as the home club of Coach Ron Ruch, with Rog Meyer and Tom Jones leading the way. Meyer wound up with 17 and Jones captured 11. Algona's all-around play was improved over its performance in the season opener a week earlier at Emmetsburg, although the Bulldogs and Trojans both managed plenty of errors. Both clubs also had sparkling moments. After a slow start (Swea City led 3-2 after two minutes), the Bulldogs suddenly shifted into high gear, and with all five starters contributing, zoomed to 8-5 and 13-6 leads before holding the upper hand, 21-6, at the quarter. Stephenson and Ruch both got a chance to try out reserves during the second stanze, the Algona coach in an effort to find out what his bench could do to hold the lead and the Swea mentor to see if his subs could find the scoring range. Led by Mark Reynolds, Swea City charged back like the cavalry and scared the heck out of Algona fans. Reynolds tossed in points like they were going out of style, canning 11 as he led a rally that threatened to sidetrack the •Dogs. It was 26-16 through the quarter and 32-24 at the intermission. Swea City's surge continued into the early minutes of the third round when Algona carried a 5135 bulge into the fourth stanza. Denny Rlchter and Meyer kept the Bulldogs rolling in the final round and the locals had no trouble taking the win, despite the shooting o/ Ed Berg and Mike Johnson. Play became erratic again near the end, but as had been true throughout, both clubs were hustling their cans off to the finish. Top man under the boards for the losers was Thor Thoreson, while Johnson, Thoreson and Berg took care of most of the steals. Black and Meyer each came up with a quartet of steals for Algona, while Jones and Steve Voyles managed to block shots for the winners. Meyer led Algona in scoring with 18 points, a career high, while Black and Richter, with 14 and 10 points, respectively, also set new personal highs. Dale Pederson added eight and Jones seven, while Reynolds topped Swea City with 12. Jeff Newlin added nine, Randy Newlin eight and Berg six.

Four men wound up in double figures, Dave Lowman with 16 points, Dean Lowman and Paul Christiansen with 12 each and Steve ChrischilleswithlO. Coach Keith Christie's group will also put a 2-0 mark on the line against Eagle Grove in the opener Friday. Frosh-Soph Cagers Split With Sentral Algona's freshman and sophomore teams divided a doubleheader basketball session, Mon- GRID GUESSERS CONTEST day evening here, against two Sentral teams. The Sentral freshmen won, 49 to 34, in the opener, but Algona's sophomores took an early lead and held it all the way for a 67 to 54 win. The soph contest went into the half with Algona ahead, 32 to 24, after also leading 17 to 7 at the quarter. This margin remained about the same until the last five minutes when Mark Olson caught fire and poured in a barrage of buckets to put the game out of reach. Olson came up with a total of 23 points. John Chris- chilles with 13 followed. Gerhart and Kennedy, each with 20 points, led the visitors, and Voigt tallied 10. The entire sophomore bench saw action before the game ended. Coach Simpson started with Chrischilles, Olson, Waller, Schultz and Rochleau, and used Hagen, Lynch, Zinnell, Wheeler, Lauck, Pederson and Whittemore before the finish. It was the first game in outside competition for both teams. The freshmen led only once, taking a 9-8 edge just before the end of the opening period. Sentral then scored and held the upper hand at the quarter buzzers, 10-9, 22-17 and 39-26 on the way to the easy 49-34 victory. Coach Lynn Kueck's club was eager, but made many glaring- mistakes which allowed the visitors to slow the attack to a walk much of the time. Eight locals got into the scoring column, with Rick Nielsen and Kent Espe topping the list with 15 and six points, respectively. Espe was the game's top re- bounder as he battled well under both boards until fouling out late in the contest. Johnson hammered in 19 points, Dreyer 12 and Mueller 10 for Sentral. Twelve men saw action for Algona during the fray. LuVerne Boys And Girls Win LuVerne topped Goldfield twice, the boys winning 41-39 and the girls taking a 61-31 decision, Tuesday night. The wins give the girls a 4-0 record, while the boys are 3-1. Linda Wilhelm led the girls in scoring with 26 points, whilo Michele Coyle got 20 and Connie Hefty 15. Jane Hanson counted 20 points for the losers. Doug Nelson led the scoring in the boys contest with 15 points BY OL' MAN MOSE For the first time in the football season, a tie resulted for first and second place between Mrs. George Baumann of Lakota, and Bill Duncan of Fenton. Each had 18 games correct as to winners. The high game total for the week was 68, the Michigan State (41>-Northwestern (27) contest. Mrs. Baumann had a high game total guess of 66, two below the actual total. Bill Duncan had a high game guess of 70, two points above the actual total. Thus they will share the combined first and second place money which means splitting a $12 pot. Third place went to Mrs. Amos Krominga of Titonka, who also had 18 correct but a high game of 64. Mrs. Mel Bay of Algona was a close fourth, also with 18 right, but she expected some low scoring and had a high game total of only 38. Honorable Mention with 17 games correct goes to Michael Fraser, Burt; Eugene Dahlhauser, West Bend; Paul Gray, Buffalo Center; Al Slobe, John Hanselman, Brett Bartlett, Mary Lee Klsch and Joe Arndorfer, all of Algona; and Karen Hansen of Ringsted. On the Mourner's Bench with only 11 correct were Bob Bradford and Joe Zittritsch, both of Algona. The woods were full of 16, 15 and 14 correct guessers, and we can quite understand it, what with upsets like Indiana over Purdue, etc., and more power to the Hoosiers. They had a Rose Bowl coming, but it might also have some thorns in the rose. This week we have a different contest as outlined in the Tuesday tabloid UDM, with the same prize. BE SURE TO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS! Golden Bears Open Season On Saturday At Bancroft Garrigan's Golden Bears will open their fourth season under Coach Steve McCall this Saturday night at Bancroft where they will tangle with the always rugged St. John's Johnnies. McCall, possessor of a fine career mark of 44-20 at Garrigan, has only one letter winner, Jack Muller, 6-4 senior center, back from last year's varsity squad which posted an 18-3 mark, best in the school's history. However, there are a number of hustlers on the squad ready to "give it a go." Muller played in each of Garrigan's games last season and wound up with 116 points for a 5.5 average. He is certain to surpass that mark by a large margin this winter. Of the lads available right now, only Dave McCarthy and Kevin O'Brien got into varsity action at all last year. O'Brien played in one contest and McCarthy was in'H. The latter counted 20 points for a 1.8 average and both have shown plenty of spark in workouts so far this season. They will help the club. Muller is slated to open at center Saturday, with O'Brien at a forward and either McCarthy or Steve Wiugert at the other forward slot. In the back court, McCall will probably use John Winkel at one guard and Jim Walker or Mike Elbert at the other. Other squad members at present are Jim Fickbohm, Vern Kollasch, Tom Black and John McGuire - and it is probable most will see action Saturday. St. John's, as of Tuesday morning, had split two games so far this season, downing Swea City alter an opening game loss to West Bend. A Junior Varsity contest at 6:30 p. m. will precede the Golden Bear-St. John's varsity game Saturday. In Choral Society Seven Algonans have joined the chorus of the North Iowa Choral Society which again this year will present the "Messiah", Dec. 3, at 2:30 p. m. at Britt. They are Wm. F. Dau, Mrs. James Chalstrom, Martin Huber, Mrs. Martin Huber, Debbie Huber, Edward and Karl Kiils- holni.
