Lions Roar, Win 76-62 Over Cold Bulldogs Here Clear lake's Lions, twelfth ranked team in the state of Iowa, showed fans in this area just exactly why they deserve such a rating as they pranced to a 70-62 North Central Conference victory over Algona's battling Bulldogs before a jammed gym full of people here Friday night. Coach Howie Stephenson's club, which absorbed only its second loss in seven outings, tangled with Spencer in the second game of the annual Holiday Coaching Clinic at Garrigan Fieldhouse last night. Clear Lake, which has featured the scoring and rebounding of the Grabinski brothers, Ken and Steve, all season, sprung a practically unadvertised source of torment at Algona in the form of Wolfgang Meier, who wound up the game's top scorer with 28 points - and this writer is happy they didn't have a Mozart to go witli him. IF the Bulldogs had been hot, the game would have been great. As it turned out, only Dale Pederson and Tom Jones were able to ring the bell with regularity- so the locals wound up with a 3-2 loop record. There were lots of great plays in tliis one, and while the Bulldogs, who trailed by as many as 23 points in the fourth period, were soundly beaten, they showed no signs of giving up. The score was tied five times during the early going after Pederson got the first bucket of the night. It was 2-2,4-4,8-8,10-10, and 12-12, with Algona holding leads of (M and 8-5 along the way. Clear Lake, led by Meier, Ken Grabinski and Paul Hankenson, scored seven straight points to break away from the 12-12 knot and held the upper hand, 2316, at the quarter, with Pederson getting half the Algona points. Clear Lake's largest lead in the first half came with six minutes gone in the second period at 36-24 and the Lions, with Meier contributing nine points and Hankenson six, all on free throws, held the upper hand, 4231, at the half. By this time, Meier had 17 points, Hankenson and Pederson 13 each and Ken Grabinski 10. The tall Lions held a slim 18-16 edge in rebounding at halftime, but 59 percent shooting from the field and 10-for-13 from the free throw line gave them a decided edge on the scoreboard. The Bulldogs were revved up after the intermission, but nothing went right for a couple of minutes and Clear Lake threw in nine straight points for a 20- point, 51-31, bulge. Those two minutes, more than any other stretch during the fray, settled the issue. Algona did bounce back somewhat and had the lead whittled to 53-39 with about two minutes left in the stanza. However, the lead was 62-41 going into the final eight minutes. The Grabinskis did practically all the scoring for the Lakers during the last eight minutes as the shooting of Mike Betts, Rich Black, Jones and Pederson narrowed the gap in the late going. Pederson's 23 points kept him in the list of top scorers in the loop, while Jones had his top effort, getting 12, and Betts added 10. Meier led the Lions, with Ken Grabinski notching 18, Hankenson 17 and Steve Grabinski 11, all in the final half. Ken Grabinski came up with 18 of his team's 34 rebounds, with Meier nabbing seven, while Meyer, Craig Taylor and Jones each got six of Algona's 26. Pederson, Jones and Black accounted for most of Algona's 16 steals and Black blocked one Lion shot, while Meier and Ken Grabinski combined to knock five Algona shots to the floor. Box Score: ALGONA (62) FG FT F Richie r Meyer Taylor Black Pederson Jones Betts 0-0 3-4 0-1 0-0 5-8 4-6 0-1 2 3 3 2 0 4 4 25 12-20 18 CLEAR LAKE Budolfson K. Grabinski S.

Steve Chrischilles counted 23 points, Paul Christiansen 10 and Dave Lowman eight for the locals, who had three men foul out of action. The reserves nearly pulled it out with a rally during the final three minutes. The locals trailed, 45-39, at halftime. Grapplers Drop Decision At Fort Dodge, 22-18 Ft. Dodge High School won five of the first seven matches and went on to post a cozy 22-18 decision over Algona 1 s Bulldogs in a dual wrestling meet at Ft. Dodge Friday night. The loss gave Algona a 3-2 season mark, while Ft. Dodge is now 3-1. Coach Champ Martin's team is holding daily workouts in preparation for the annual Osage Invitational, which will be held there this Saturday, featuring a fine field of teams from northeast Iowa. A 17-5 deficit after seven matches proved too much for the Bulldogs to overcome Friday. The 'teams split decisions in the first two matches, with Russ Bird getting one for Algona, 3-0, over Mark Larson at 103 to knot the count, 3-3. Only a draw between Lance Rutledge and Jerry Irvine, 1-1, interrupted a Ft. Dodge skein of four victories through 138. From that time on, the Bulldogs took over, but couldn't overcome the home club. Don Camp posted a fall in 5:43 over Wayne McMannus at 145, then Phil Bode and Brian Far rell, drew, 4-4,at 154. Duane Hunt lost at 165 before Bruce Bennett and Steve Fitzpatrick came up with decisions at 180 and heavy weight. One of the top matches during the night was a meeting of Bob Tague, rated as the top Dodger grappler, and Denny Petersen at 112. Tague managed a 4-1 decision, but Pete went all out in an attempt to snare a win. Fitzpatrick nearly pinned his opponent, Gary Perry, several times during the heavyweight match, winning 14-0, as the Algona freshman continued to show improvement, although wrestling one weight above his normal slot. Results: 95 - Gary Gade (A) lost to John Tabot, 6-2. 103 - Russ Bird (A) defeated Mark Larson, 3-0. 112 - Denny Peterson (A) lost to Bob Ta^ue, 4-1. 12- - Darrell Miller (A) lost to Tim Friederichs, 11-2. 127 - Steve Claude (A) lost to Keith Brown, 2-1. 133 - Lance Rutledge (A) and Jerry Irvine drew, 1-1. 138 - Larry Taylor (A) lost to JoLn Cucklo, 9-3. 145 - Don Camp (A) threw Wayne McMannus, 5:43. 154 - Pliil Bode (A) and Brian Farrell drew, 4-4. 165 - Duane Hunt (A) lost to Dennis Olson, 5-2. 180 - Bruce Bennett (A) defeated Dale Morris, 7-0. Hwt. - Steve Fitzpatrick (A) defeated Gary Perry, 14-0.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR COLLEGE STUDENT SPEAKS Editor Algona Upper Des Moines I think the great majority of the citizens of Iowa and of the United States have been horrified during the recent violent and oftentimes illegal demonstrations on our college campuses, usually against Dow Chemical recruiters or Armed Forces recruiters. I share the views of the majority and think that all law-breakers should be prosecuted and punished if found guilty. Law and order are absolutely essential if we hope to maintain the ideals of the U. S. Constitution. I have been aware for some time that many of the first-year men at my college, Loras, Dubuque, Iowa, are not aware of the laws concerning the U.S. citizens' obligation of service to his country, ie., the various Selective Service laws and directives. It seems that college-bound men discover that they can "get out of the draft by obtaining a deferment, and that is all they know. In order to overcome this ignorance I have become a Draft counselor and promulgate information to the students at Loras. I was not too surprised, upon returning home for Christmas vacation in Algona, to find that the very laws and constitutional principles for which so many men are fighting and dying are not known by our local high school students, many of whom will not be going to college. We are highly indignant when others flagrantly break laws (and rightly so) but how clear can our consciences be if the legal rights of citizens are not being taught in our public and private schools? There have been individuals throughout the recorded history of man, in every culture in every age, who have been devoted to non-violent resistance to evil. It is the mark of a great country to allow those individuals whose consciences prevent them from killing other men to serve their country in other ways. Our country is one of the great countries and we have written in the Selective Service Law itself provision for Conscientious Objectors. There have been C.O.'s of all religions, and a few of no formal religion, in WW I, W W 11, the Korean War, and the present war in Vietnam. The judgment of world history and our own U. S. history has been that the alternate non-combatant service to their fellow men has been tremendously beneficial to the community of man. And yet, when I mentioned this legal alternative to military service to a religious leader of our community to see if C.O. information was promulgated through the local churches or schools, I was treated with a response which was hardly Christian. In conclusion I ask this: are we truly dedicated to the United States of America and its laws for the maintenance of our rights and privileges? Or, are we only dedicated to preserving our own individual tttliefs, legal or illegal? This latter view is that of the students who are at the root of so much of the violence on our college campuses. Are we any different? Do we insure that the students of Algona know the law that constitutes such a vital influence on their lives during the next few years? Sincerely, Charles E.
