ACTION IXTA.H.S. 10-Algona la.) Upper De* Moinei. Thursday, Jan. 18, 1968 By JUAN Another AHS student is laid up in the hospital again. A girl this time. That brings the ones who have been in the hospital from AHS to a total of three. Karen Petersen, Brad Farnham, and the latest, who is in Lutheran Hospital in Fort Dodge, Peggy Sabin, a freshman. Really we didn't count Brad's second visit. . . . anyway let*s hope no more students are admitted! - o - AHS health classes were taken to the fire station Wednesday for a tour. No one cried because they couldn't ride the "clean machine". . . .but they might have sat on one! - o - With the End semester coming around, students (mostly sophomores) are scheduling to get into driver's education. It seems there's always a mistake made so with an older person getting left out and a younger one admitted to the class, Diana Levy will have to wait till summertime to ride her big Honda but in the meantime there's always that nicesno-mo- bile waiting for her! - o - In intramural basketball action last week the hot shot score of the week went to Mark Prieskorn of the Wildcats with 23 points. His Wildcats are tied for first place with the rough and tough Warriors with 2 wins and 0 losses. The season's leading scorer is Bruce Olson with an 18-point average in two games. Bruce (who takes on his younger brother Mark) belongs with the 1-1 Trotters. Last week's pep meeting really helped those sly Bulldogs last week but not just the meeting did it. Much credit should be given to the outstanding jobs done by the best pep band in the North Central Conference and of course those Cadettes who entertain the fans at half time. Even the women like to watch them as well as the men. The pep band is directed by Mr. Guster and the Cadettes are under the direction of Mrs. Moxley. And how could we ever forget the hard effort put out by the cheerleaders! Without any of these people this school would be down on the bottom with the Cowboys! Like the sign in the gym says: "We*re proud of our boys." - o - Rewards were even given to students or faculty who said "Beat Iowa Falls" to a special person every fifth time. You are only young once. After that it takes another excuse. LuVerne Folks At Rites For Dead Soldier LU VERNE - Mr. and Mrs. Lester Smith of LuVerne; Mr. and Mrs. Harold Smith, Renwick; and Mrs. Don Cameron of Eagle Grove left Thursday for Deer River, Minn., where they attended the funeral Friday for their nephew, Dennis Smith, son of Mr. and Mrs. Marlin Smith, who was killed in Vietnam.
