Game time is 8 p.m. -, The Bears held an in^ra-squad scrimmage under the lights Saturday night as five Algeria .officials donated their time, than kept working on offensive and defensive alignments this week as they prepared for Waseca, a team tbat has already racked' up two wins in two tries so far this year. The Minnesotans run out of a Wing-T and have held two opponents to a total of six points. Coach Copper has made some changes in an effort to bolster his iteam for its eight-game schedule. For instance, he has shifted Lyle Loebach, who developed into a preDty fine end last year to fullback where he will carry the mail instead of Bill Reed who is sidelined with a bad back. Jerry Krieps, regular guard last season wdl play quarterback on offense and might be used as a guard on defense. Men slated to start in the opener are shown above, flanked by several others who will undoubtedly get into the' fray. Linemen left to right, ready-to really dig put,' are.-BIB Rahm, end; Rifh ArnHnrfer tackle, Terry Hudspeth, guard, LeRoy Heinen, center; Mark Elbert guard, Steve Stucier, tackle, and Dictc Stouiii, end. b-tanaing oemnu the line, left -to right, are the backs, Krieps, John. Fandel, halfback, Loebach, and Bob Reed, halfback. " Players standing at -the left are Bob.Schneider, quarterback, Jim Nitchals, fullback, Paul Seller, tackle/Steve Smith, end, Lee Froeh- «!?£' ^Su ck> Tom Hudspeth, halfback, Phil Henry, .tackle, and Mike Dahlhauser, fullback. They will see duty — and so will Tom Youngwirth, tackle, and Paul Koppen, halfback. Cooper's Bears will have to go some to top last year's record That outfit wound up with a 6-2-1 mark after the 1959 Bears dropped all eight games during the school's first season. They will play four games at home and four on the road during 1961, Not many teams will outweight the locals, but many of the Bears lack experience. (UDM Newsfoto-Engraving) Football In The 'Good Old Days' The opening of the 1961 football season, which will be kicked off locally when Algona high school's Bulldogs host Emmetsburg at the fairgrounds tomorrow (Friday) night and the following night when Garrigan'i Golden Bears will host Waseca Minn, Sacret Heart at Garrigan' Field, brings up the opportunity to dig into the past and come up with some gems written about games played by a local team during the 1904-05 era. And judging from the stories- football hasn't gotten a bit tougher. In fact, parents have less to worry about (in the way of injuries to their sons) now than they did long ago. Here are soine quotes taken from old files at the UDM office, gepl, 30, 1904 — "The football se^spri has commenced and Al- gofia starts out with a glorious refiu'd. ,O«r high school boys> piayfld jii team of Burt boys and men fd^i Saturday and beat them 'at the i^ate of 15 to 0 and broke the collar bones of two of them. That's thf\way to make a record that will l>£ remembered. The boys whose ^ones were broken are named Warble end Stowe. Prjze fighting J| brutal but not popular in polite society, bui football is gentle, exhilarating und popular with the most fastidious." •Oft, 1, 1904 — "Our football wuit up to LhuQLti Saturday and scored a glorious victory. As far as points is concerned the teams came out even, the score being 0-0, but our boys broke the nose of one of the other fellows, and that was glory enough for one day. Those who go up against Algona will have tause to remember it." Oct. 14, 1904 — "Blue Earth City claims the champion football team of Southern Minnesota and last Friday these Minnesota giants came to Algona for a game and were defeated by a score of 12-5. The Algona team is willing and anxious to go up against the best of them. Nobody was killed or seriously crippled in Friday's game." Oct. 21, 19Q4 _ "Algona beats the world on football. It almost beat the world on baseball a couple of years ago, but we believe it is winning more laurels on football. Fort Dodge came up here for a game and got it put all over them to the tune of 62-0 a £r J lve of lheir m . en were disabled. The unvarying victories ot our boys and casualties among their opponents reminds us 01 the career of the Japanese in Manchuna." Oct, 6, 18QS - "The buscbal- cranks will now take a back seat and give the football friends the field. Algona will mop UD the earth with Emmetsburg at thp fairgrounds Saturday after' ' mcnce at 2 o'clock. Go early and avoid the rush," Oct. 27, 19Q5 — "Our Algona football team is feeling good on account of their victory over the Emmetsburgers last Saturday. The game was played at Emmetsburg and the score was 28 to 0. Algona will try conclusion^ with Mason City tomorrow et this place," Nov. 3, 1905 -^ "Our footbajl boys scored another great victory last Saturday by laying the Mason City bpys low to the tune of 29-0. At the rate our boys are going they will sopn be weeping for pther worlds to conquer." TIME MARCHES ON!
