don smrth THERE were a pair of firsts for many Algona High basketball fans attending the Bulldog- Clarion fray here Friday night. Everyone In the packed house witnessed a duo of special features. First off, Coach BUI Simpson's hustling sophomores took the floor in the first contest of the evening- meeting Clarion's junior varsity. The youngsters, who play a regular schedule during the winter months, just as Coach Lynn Kueck*s frosh do, got a chance to show a large crowd their wares - and nearly managed to overcome too many fouls and injuries before dropping a 2- point decision. FOR many (especially proud parents like yours truly), appearance of sixth grade teams from Lucia Wallace and Bryant proved to be the high point of the night. A split squad from Lucia Wai" lace, under Steve King, went at it during halftime of the sophomore fray and a similar group from Bryant did the same between halves of the varsity match, which Howie Stephenson's club won handily. Art Olson was the Bryant mentor. PROBABLY the thing thaf s so impressive about these sixth grade games (besides the fact if s the first appearance by the lads on a basketball floor before a large crowd) is how great a play can look when done by someone so young. 'Both games had plenty to offer in the way of outstanding performances - and we imagine local coaches in the crowd drooled over some of the lads when thinking about the future. PRESS boner — Williams missed the short infield fly and ended up flat on his grass just back of second base - Philadelphia Record. COACHES Keith Christie and Simpson officiated the sixth grade contests - and were assured their jobs were fine enough that this writer would not shoot them full of barbs. We think they had as much fun as the kids who had fun for sure. There, BUI, I said I'd compliment you on your job. That'll be a quarter. I was sitting between Dottie Martin (Coach Champ's wife)and Lynn Kueck when the Lucia Wallace crew went at it. Dottie said their Paul was not sure his dad would be too happy about him reporting for basketball practice sessions. Olson and King had less than two weeks to prepare their respective squads for the games - but did a great job. Anyway, Dottie and Champ assured their son it would be okay if he tried the "other sport." Paul managed to flip in a neat 60 MPH lay-up and hit his only free throw chance. The old man might have a tough time talking him out of basketball. Paul was. also worried about what brother Dave (a varsity gr apple r at Iowa State) might think about his playing basketball. IT was a great show - and I'm sure we could pick out several lads that show promise of great things on the court. We know Howie and his crew of coaches wUl be turning out good teams in the future with some of those lads. It's too bad they can't make more than one appearance WALT DISNEY ^-j Presents ^^ UungleBooK W«ll Dun., Production!

Harold Hughes hurt his political chances for a post in the nation's capital with his tax laws (passed by the 1967 Goofislature), but we feel he might have killed his future. We've never heard anything (law-wise) discussed (let's make it cussed) around here like those laws. It's a shame the Goofislature had to spend so much time in DesMoines and then come up with the crap they did on the last go-around. Before we forget, it was all made possible by both Democrats and Republicans.
