The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, Nov. 23,1933 Algona Indies in State Spotlight with Victory over Boone Team MERCER, LIGHTER, WHITE, OTHERS IN SEASON'S CLASSIC Score 20-7 at Final Whistle After Boone Bad Led 7-6 at the Half Sheriff, Local Officer Search For Body; Find Youth Safe, Sound LANDED ON "SOFT" WHITTEMORE ROAD A scrappy, fighting football team from Boone lost to the Algona town team Sunday, 20 to 7, before the largest crowd of the season at Athletic park. Each team fought hard for every Inch of ground gained and the local boys knew that they had been In their toughest battle. Boone had only been defeated once this season, prior to Its meeting with Algona Independents. After a scoreless first quarter the Algona team carried the ball for a touchdown early In the second quarter. Mercer, White and Llchter behind some fine blocking by Reed plunged and went off tackle for three first downs with Mercer carrying the ball over from the three yard marker. Cosgrove attempted a place kick for the extra point but It was blocked. Cutback Gains Ground •With an exchange of punts Johnny Dettman raced through Algona's left guard, 'cutting back through the secondary defense from his own fifteen yard line to Algona's five yard line. With three plunges Ray Morris carried it over tying the game at six all. Dettman plunged for the extra point giving the Yellowjackets a 7 to 6 lead which they held until the third quarter. While Dettman was making his sensational 80 yard run the most spectacular play of the game was the feat of Mercer who ran down the fleet Boone back and tackled him from behind saving a touchdown at this point. White scored the second Algona touchdown In the third quarter, skirting Boone's left end behind the perfect blocking of Lichter and Reed. Eddie Ostron then drop kicked for the extra point, which gave the local team a 13 to 7 lead. In the final quarter two consecutive forward passes from White to Mercer were good for a touchdown. The first pass was for twenty yards and the second was a thirty yard pass aver the goal line with Mercer holding the ball. Score, Algona 20. Boone 7. ,Oapt. Moore, Bradfleld at end and Idehter were the outstanding defensive players. Mercer, white and Llchter carried the brunt of the offense. The entire team played good football. AlgoMa Dominates Second Half During the entire second half the Algona line was never In danger but the Boone team kept fighting hard until the last whistle.

Basketeers Gird for 33*34 Year; Schedule Luted For the past several weeks, the after-school hours have found a number of thinly clad youths dribbling, shooting, pivoting and scrapping In the high school gym.

NINE SENIORS END ACADEMY CAREERS i St. Cecelia Gridders Pack Togs Away After 13-2 Defeat Nine senior members of the St. Cecelia academy football team wound up their football careers In am academy uniform at Emmetsburg, Sunday, against St. Mary's academy. The game resulted in a 13 to 2 defeat for the locals. Cocah Art Nordstrum's boys started packing the old togs away in mothballs after the contest. The seniors who played then* final contest for the local school were Besten- lehner, end, Baker, tackle, Behlmer, and Gennett, centers, Kohlhaas and Matern, guards, and Kelly, Hansen and Llchter, backfleld men. The St. Mary's team scored in the first half with a series of off-tackle plays. Algona didn't get Into the scoring territory until the second half, when a pass from Baker to Besten- lehner was almost completed over the goal line. At this point the officials ruled that the interference entitled Algona to two points, the same as a safety. With the score in a position where Algona could win by another touchdown, the St. Mary's boys sewed up the contest by pushing over another counter in the last quarter on a series of end runs. Kelly at full back played the greatest game of his career for St. Cecelia's. He kicked to perfection, setting one boot down on the two-yard line. Hansen and Bode were other outstanding men, while Kohlhaas, Matern and Baker played strong games In the line. A summary of the season finds St. Cecelia's the winner of three contests, tied for one and defeated in three, a duplication of last season's record, except that last year there was one addi- tlonla tie game.

SCHEDULE Hampton Defeats Bulldogs 10-0 in Last Home G-ame The Algona hign school football team put up a desperate fight against Hampton on the local lot last Saturday afternoon, but Dame Fortune refused to smile, with the result that Hampton carried off a 13 to 0 victory to cheer up the old folks at home. The Bulldogs played a hard game, and made vigorous attempts to penetrate the Hampton defense, but they just couldn't push the old leather over that last stripe. The 1933 football season for Algona high will wind up at Eagle Grove, Friday afternoon, when the Red and Black takes on the highly touted Gravers about 3 p. nii The prospects are anything but rosy. Eagle Grove has another one of those crushing machines comparable to Mason City and Clarion, but the Bullodgs will endeavor to live up to their name and make a game of it. Algona has been handicapped all season by a lack of material. There have been so few eligible men out for the positions that there has been no competition for places on the squad. Injuries find the team with a serious dearth of substitutes. And on top of that the rest of the circle in which Algona moves Is fortunate enough to have veteran teams back for the most part. The present season is about over; the next season, we hope, will find a big squad out, perhaps some of the men now in school who should have been out this year. Football is a great game but it needs a squad of hard-working, fighting players to make a team. Perhaps next season the veterans of this year will have a little help from newcomers who will pitch in and give the team a punch it lacks this season.

O. 8. club should be congratulated on Its very clever ideas for entertaining the student body for weekly pep meetings, and also for its little skits. Last Friday, two three- year old juveniles, namely, Tiny Post and Pony Sellstrom were being taught the essentials of good yelling by a very exasperated Maurice Michel. Tiny, wearing a ruffled bonnet, seemed exceedingly attracted to Pony's sucker, as his own had already been consumed, and both seemed interested in everything but their cheering lesson. After a few feeble trials, in which Pony reached high crescendo, they both amazed the audience by booming out a rousing cheer for the team. Hollywood could find some brilliant juvenile actors right here with little effort. Makes New Purchase The school has Invested in a new, fpeedy Ditto machine to replace the old mussy mimeograph.

The depression has brought this great work to the point where help must come if It is to be able to give food and shelter to the little army of helpless children under its daily care. During these days of strife there Is no problem more real, more urgent or more pathetic than the problem of deserted, homeless children and there are many thousands of them—helpless, hungry, innocent little children, who are in no wise to blame for the hardships that are upon our country—the little ones who are truly suffering for the actual necessities of life; who are without medical care and proper shelter, and with winter at hand, many of them will die unless help comes speedily. The Christian Home Orphanage at Council Bluffs, Iowa, for fifty-one years has cared for and educated homeless children from every state in the union. The depression has placed a heavy, withering hand upon it. It has managed to keep its doors open so far, but today it faces the supreme eSort of its long life. Winter is at hand, and appeals In behalf of helpless children are pouring in upon it. If the Home is to be able to function it must have the very prompt help of all kindly-disposed people, whose hearts go out to homeless children. The Home appeals to you earnestly for this help. The Home Is supported wholly by voluntary contributions from all sections of the country. It is non-sectarian; has no endowment; receives no appropriations of any kind; employs no traveling agents, but must depend solely upon the goodness of the people for funds to care for Its little ones. It provides for an average of 600 children annually. It conducts Its own school, hospital, and a department for dependent, nged women. The Home is of necessity depending upon the liberality of contributions at Thanksgiving and during the Christmas season, to enable It to keep its doors open, and trusts that all will contribute as promptly as possible whatever sum you see fit to send. This Is truly the testing-time Tor this great work. With the united help of nil who nre intersted In the care and shelter of homeless children, the work can be carried through these unfortunate dnys. The work, and these little children, so greatly need your help, that it Is to be hoped that none will fail to help to whatever extent is possible. Please send all contributions to the Christian Home Orphanage, Council Bluffs, Iowa, and the same will be duly acknowledged and credited in the official publication of the institution, a copy of which will bP mailed to you.
