Swea city, champion of the boys' teams last year, is not In the conference this year and all six teams Will be scrapping for the leadership. The Lone Rock team which wound up the season in second place just behind Swea City last year, lost four regulars and some reserves via graduation and is not generally conceded much chance : to rank af the top this year. Penton, the only member of the present conference to win from Lone Rock last year, has several veterans on their «juad and promises to rank near the top this year. Ledyard, always in the thick of the race last year with an in. experienced team, did not suffer heavily at graduation time, and will have a : more experienced team this year which promises to put up a stiff battle for the lead. SCHOOL NOTES by the High School Scribes Tltonka in Fight Titonka, which also lacked experience last year, should be In the thick of the race this year with a number of : veterans on their squad. Bancroft lacking material last year, has a race before the season is over. Seneca, short , In reserve material last year, is more or less of an unknown quantity right jnow, but undoubtedly will come up with ;a promising team. Some light will be thrown on the comparative strength of these teams Friday night as they open their conference schedules. Three Girls' Teams Three of the schools, Ledyard, Lone Rock and Seneca, will scrap it out for the girls' championship in the conference. Right now the race appears to be a toss-up. The Ledyard girls were golner strong at the close of last season and should be good again and it seems that Seneca always has a good girls' team, while Lone Rock, the defending champions, will have a more or less inexperienced team which la The members of the 8. O. O. S. club, meaning spirit of Our School, are proudly sporting arm bands signifying their membership. The emblems consist of the letters 8. O. O. S. in black and red on a shield of red and black. The S. O. O. S. club has organized another group of pupils called The Thundering Thirty, which Is supposed to make more noise than the rest of the school put together during the pep meetings. The members were chosen for their attendance at the games, and their pep. No members of the foot ball squad are eligible. Up to the pre sent there are only girls In the group but it is hoped that some of the boy will measure up to the requirements a some time or other. There really had ought to be some masculine element nit. Classes Flay Handball The gym classes, which have been 'laying; handball for the past few weeks re now conducting a tournament to etcrmine the championship. The win- ers of (he different divisions will play or the title some time this week. More Hallowe'en Mr. McDowell was kept busy during the first few minutes of his history period the other day because he had to write out tardy slips for the boys who had to go and put up a shed they had knocked down during their Hal- lowe'en rampage. Studious Exams The advanced shorthand class read !n their magazine the other day tha the University of Texas had a course In which there was a room provided with cots for the pupils to rest up after their strenuous studying. I wonder why some one doesn't suggest that kind of a class In this school? There are a number of boys especially who would certainly take high honors if such a class were Installed. And Cornell Won Miss Messenger, Miss Messer, Miss Walters, Miss Wilson and Miss Olady Rising motred to Cornell college last Fridayto attend the annual homecoming. They were rewarded for then- effort when Cornell won the game. Armistice Day Observed The high school attended a special Armistice Day program last Friday morning in the auditorium.

Mr. Briggs has been a patient at the hospital for some time, suffering with general infection of the blood. Mr. Briggs is a bachelor but little else is known about him at this time. The absence of Clarence Bruns, potent Algona high school fullback, from the lineup in the Humboldt game, last Friday at Humboldt due to an injury received near the start of the game, materially reduced the strength of the Bulldogs, who lost the contest, 13 to 0. Bruns was running interference on he first play after Algona received the mil from Humboldt on a punt, about three minutes after the game was under way. When the players untangled ie was lying on ground, unconscious, le was rushed to a doctor's office by Coach Ken Mercer where his injuries were treated, and both he and coach leroer sot back to the olayin? field in Ime to witness the second half. Hum- oldt had scored two touchdowns in he first half, both on passes. It is believed that Bruns got the nee of an opposing player In the head r somewhere on the face.
