Bears Thunder Past Another foe, 83-32; Clinic Is Next Garrigan's vaunted defensive play allowed the Golden Bears to bomb Emmetsburg Catholic here Monday night, 83-32. The point Spread was second greatest in the school's history, only an 84-32 Victory over Pocahontas Catholic a year ago beating Monday's mark. The Bears; winners of their last three games and possessors of a 4-1 season mark under Coach Steve McCall, travelled to Ft. Dodge and the first meeting of this season with St. Edmond last night (Wednesday) and will tangle with Forest City here at 7 p.m. in the first of two Holiday Coach- Ing Clinic games next Wednesday, Dec. 27. Illness struck the McCallmen again Monday as Jack Muller was not up to par after being sick during the day. Two starters, Mike Elbert and Kevin O'Brien, were not suited for the Pocahontas Catholic contest Saturday night, but did see limited duty against the previously-unbeaten Emmetsburg outfit Monday. The coach, however, has indicated he does not favor the sickness plan, although his club raced to a pair of lop-sided wins. It was Nellie, bar the door, Monday, as far as the visitors were concerned. The Bears got off to a good start, taking a 2111 lead at the end of eight minutes. Play during the period did not indicate things to come. Not by any means. The locals, using theft tactics and a very effective fast break, broke the game wide open during the second stanza. With nine men seeing action, the Bears left the court and headed for the locker room with a 47-19 bulge. Garrigan's defense, which is based on the line, "don't let them shoot," was near perfect. The visitors, who managed only 38 shots from the floor during the entire fray, got 18 the first half. Gar rigan fired 48 times before the half. The onslaught continued during the second half, with Muller and Steve Wingert leading the attack. Muller continued to hit from the baselines and Wingert, who cooled from outside, combined with the former to manage some tip-ins for points. Wingert also hit well from inside. Garrigan reserves played out the final eight minutes as a total of 12 men saw action, with all getting into the scoring column. Wingert, who got into double figures the first time in his short varsity career with 16 points against Pocahontas Saturday night, canned 19 Monday and grabbed scoring honors from Muller, who had been top man in each of the first four contests. Muller was next with 14, while Jim Fickbohm and Jim Walker added 10 each and John Winkel notched eight. Neary led the losers with 13 and was the only visitor in double figures. Under the boards, Wingert, who has shown vast improvement as a rebounder, led the way with 15, while Muller, who has averaged 15 each fray since the opening game this year, got 14. Muller's scoring average at present is 20.4 through five contests. The latest outbursts, against Pocahontas and Emmetsburg, have allowed the Bears to raise their offensive average to 74.3, while the defensive mark has dipped to 49.7. The locals have outscored the opposition overall, 372-248. Muller is the only scorer in double figures, but Wingert is now averaging eight points per outing, while Kevin O'Brien, Dave McCarthy, Walker, Mike Elbert and Fickbohm are all in the 6.4 to 7.5 bracket. Box Score: GARRIGAN (83) FG FT F Muller 62-33 Fickbohm 50-02 McCarthy 0 2-24 Walker 5 0-1 3 Wingert 75-82 Black 1 0-0 1 Winkel 32-40 Elbert 20-02 O'Brien 1 1-2 3 Kajewski 2 0-0 3 McGuire 02-43 Kollasch 1 3-5 1 33 17-29 27 Garrigan's sophomores, who dropped their opener, came up with their fourth straight win in the curtain-raiser, 65-36, as Coach Dick Walsh got an all-out effort from everyone on the squad. FAMILY VACATION Mrs. Eugene Clark of rural Osage won a week's vacation and the entire twelve members of the Clark family will help her spend the week at Lake Okoboji this •ummer. SPORTS CHAIR-UFTS?METAL SKIS NOPE/ NOT EVEN SNOW.' THE GREATEST. COV7/?/- BUTION TH/5 COUNTRY -HAS MADE TO SKIING /S ST&TCN PANTS • BB Team Hosts C-Lake; Grapplers To Ft. Podge Activity on the sports scene here slims down a bit for the next couple of weeks, due to the holiday break, but fans will still have plenty to see this weekend as the Algona High basketball team and wrestlers are in action Friday night. The basketballers, winners of their last two contests and riding a 5-1 season mark, host what must be considered the best team in the North Central Conference- Clear Lake, here, while the grapplers travel to Ft. Dodge and a dual meet with the Dodgers who took first in the recent Eagle Grove Invitational. The wrestlers are 3-1 in dual competition. In latest outings, the wrestlers dropped a 20-19 dual decision at Humboldt Friday, then finished second 'among eight ^.teams in the Algona Invitational "Meet Saturday, while the basketball team belted Hampton, 72-51, Friday night, upping its loop record to 3-1, right behind the highflying Clear Lakers, who are 6-0 for the season and 4-0 in the conference. Clear Lake is led by the two Grabinski brothers, Ken, who has been giving teams in this area all kinds of problems for several years, and the younger brother, Steve, who has made his presence felt already, although a newcomer on the varsity level. Using last week's averages, the latest from the loop, Ken had a 25- poi(|t per game average in the loop while Steve is scoring at a 14.5 clip. As a team, the Lions are averaging more than 70points per game, while their defensive mark of 57 is quite good. And, the club also leads in rebound average with 41 each time out. Coach Howie Stephenson's hustling bunch will have to put out all the way against the much taller Lions - IF they are going to pull this one out. But, on past performance, they can't be ruled out. Algona is averaging 65.7 points per game and has a 54.2 defensive mark for the season (not just loop activity). Scoring leader so far is Rog Meyer with 89 points and an average of 14.6 per game. However, he isn't alone in double figures. Dale Pederson, who has hit 43 points in his last two frays, now has 85 points for a 14.2 mark and Rich Black, perhaps most exciting of the Bulldogs to watch, has 71 points and an 11.8 average. So, the guards, Pederson and Black are hitting about 26 points per night between them. Grouping the three top scorers together, it is apparent, Denny Richter, Tom Jones, Craig Taylor, Mike Betts and the rest of the Bulldogs are going to have to surpass average efforts if the Lions are to be handed their first loss. The struggle should be worth witnessing. Coach Champ Martin's grapplers will be led in the Ft. Dodge struggle by the big winners (so far), Don Camp, 9-1; Steve Claude, 8-1-1; Phil Bode, 8-2; Bruce Bennett, 7-3; and Rob Claude, 4-0-1. The two Claudes and Gump won Individual crowns as the Bulldogs narrowly missed winning their own Invitational Meet. Bode, Duane Hunt and Steve Fitzpatrick, who has done well as a freshman heavyweight, took seconds; and Gary Gade, Larry Taylor and Bennett wound up with thirds. As a team, the Bulldogs have won 69 matches, lost 38 and had three wind up in draws. A fine record, which with a slight bit of luck against Humboldt would have kept the club undefeated to this point. The Dodgers reportedly have another fine team. They downed Algona, 24-18, here last season, 26-18 the year before after Algona won, 18-17, during the 196465 campaign. The Bulldogs also won the year before that, 20-16, so in recent years all meetings of the two schools have been quite cozy. Martin would like his club to begin another winning streak, one that could still bring a loop title. Sioux City CYO Tourney To Start Jan. 21 Garrigan's Golden Bears, winners of the class A A championship last season, will open defense of their Sioux City diocese CYO title here Sunday, Jan. 21, at 7:30 p.m., according to word received this week from Rev. Wm. J. Ortmann, diocesan athletic director. The Bears, who won the crown Jan. 29 with a 63-50 victory over Carroll Kuemper, face the same club in first round action this season. The game will be played in Garrigan fieldhouse, while Ft. Dodge St. Edmond and Sioux City Heelan will meet the same night at Sioux City.

Titonka Downs Ledyard 67-41 In Girls 7 BB Titonka grabbed an early lead and went on to a 67-47 victory over Ledyard in girls' basket-ball action Tuesday night. The winners led 21-8 at the quarter, 41-20 at the half, and 56-27 at the three-quarter mark as Ackerman counted 32 points and Hoover 15. S. Menke notched 24 and M. Johnson 18 for the losers.

LU VERNE - Was it the "first herald of spring" which was viewed by Cliff Holmes, who lives just east of here, Monday morning - or just a plain oddity? Mr. Holmes stepped out of his home and discovered a robin chirping noisily in an apricot tree in his back yard. Needless to say, a robin in this area Dec. 18 is something far from ordinary. Everyone in the area is hoping the feathered friend was bringing news of unseasonable spring-like weather ahead. If he wasn't, maybe he was just a "Wrong Way Corrigan." KOSSUTH COUNTY'S FAVORITE NEWSPAPER1I SKIDS ON ICE A car driven by Duane H. Hilbert, 25, LuVerne, sustained an estimated $300 damage when it collided with a pickup truck driven by Rodney C.
