He was at it again during the Sectional Meet at Humboldt last week. Champ, at left in the above photo, and Fritz Nielsen, seated next to him, one of his assistants, have teen plotting a course for Duane Hunt, Algona's 165 pounder, on top of his opponent in the photo, and the head coach is letting Duane have the plans. (Dave Riley Photo) Bulldogs Pummel Clarion To Grab Second In Loop 27 44 NEED A TYPEWRITER FOR SCHOOL? YOU GET THE BEST DEAL AT THE DES MOINES PUBL. CO. None of the Algona fans jammed into the local gym Friday night would have been at all surprised if their 'favorite Bulldogs had been flat in a North Central Conference appearance against Clarion's Cowboys - it could have been expected after a disappointing double overtime loss to powerful Clear Lake a week earlier - but the club was sharp at the right times and waltzed off with a simple 80-51 victory. So, Coach Howie Stephenson's battlers head into their final fray of the regular Season at Iowa Falls next Friday night with a 12-5 season mark and 9-4 loop record. The locals must get a win after the long trip to Cadet-land if they want at least a piece' of second place in the final standings. A 77-76 victory over Iowa Falls here Jan. 12 came in one of the club's top efforts of the season. And it will take another great one to get the job done again. EARLY HOT BLAST If the Bulldogs were stale in Friday's fray — it wore off after the first 20 seconds. From then on throughout the first half- the net was singed as practically every shot fired by the locals found the target. Somebody must have taken the funnel off at halftime, because the rain of points practically ceased. Dandy Dale Pederson left- handed five first period buckets, Rog Meyer came up with four steals and eight points and Tom Jones captured four rebounds and slammed in seven points as Algona roared to a 26-10 lead after eight minutes. Rich Black also stole the Cowboys blind to set up several of the fielders. 52-23 AT HALF The second stanza was nearly a repeat of the first - except Clarion managed three more points, so Algona held a commanding 52-23 bulge at the half. Stephenson stayed with his starters for a very short time in the quarter, so Denny Richter, Mike Betts, Steve Voyles, Dean Lowman and Smokey Barr came on to complete the first-half rout. When the intermission arrived, Clarion's top point producers had five counters, while Algona had nine men in the scoring column, with Pederson leading the way with 17, while Meyer had 10. And the rebound battle showed Algona on top. The locals had also amassed 12 steals by then. MAINTAIN LEAD Points were harder to come by from then on. Clarion reserves seemed to give the visitors a little boost, but the Bulldogs, with Craig Taylor and Tom Jones leading the surge, did manage a rally that upped the lead to 66-36 rounding the bend into the final round. It was reserves throughout the final quarter for the locals and the result was practically a stand-off as the lop-sided victory went into the book. Every one of the 12 men who saw action for the locals turned in a creditable performance against a team that had posted only one win all season. Pederson was top gun with 19 points, while Meyer ended with 12 and Jones 11. Richter had eight, Taylor and Betts seven each, Voyles five, Jeff Allen four, Lowman and Barr three each and Black one. Algona's rebounding was spread about evenly among Meyer, Taylor, Jones, Richter, Betts and Voyles, while Cullinan led the visitors under the boards. Meyer, Black, Barr, Betts and Allen spent a lot of time stealing the ball from the Cowboys, moves that helped stitch the victory.

A 27-7 bulge in the foul department, with Algona on the long end, gave the Cowboys the victory. John Chrischilles was forced out of the Algona lineup late in the second quarter when an opponent's finger went into and cut his right eye. Mark Olson led the locals in scoring with eight points, while Pederson added six, Chrischilles five, Waller and Schultz four each, and Zinnel, Rochleau and Wheeler two each. SIXTH GRADES Halftime entertainment and thrills were furnished during each game as sixth graders from Lucia Wallace and Bryant took the court for the first time. The reds downed the blacks, 10-6, in the Lucia Wallace fray, with both teams coached by Steve King, while the Bryant blacks downed the reds, 10-5, under Coach Art Olson. The annual appearance of the sixth grader-s proved again to be a great one. To ease the discomfort of his 10 year old son, Dr. John B. Dunlop developed the pneumatic tire one day in 1888. A veterinary surgeon of Belfast, Ireland, Dr. Dunlop fitted an air valve to a rubber tube. He slipped this inside a larger tube. He then bound this to a wheel and pumped air into it. So, the air-filled tire was born. 16-31 21 FT 0-2 3-4 1-1 2-5 0-0 0-1 0-1 5-7 0-0 F 1 5 2 3 5 3 1 2 0 LOANS $25 to $5000 CONSOLIDATE YOUR DEBTS FINANCE YOUR NEXT CAR UNITED LOAN SERVICE PITTMAN FINANCE CORP. 106 S.
