THE HUSTLER" CTA: RTS SUNDAY" Piper Laurie anxiously awaits the return of'obsessional pool-player Paul Newman in the 201h Century-Fox CinemaScope drama "The Mustier," co-starring Jackie Gleason, George C. Scott and Myron McCormick, on view Sunday at the Algona TheaffK Bulldogs Bow To Clarion, take 3rd In Conference Algona high dropped its final football game of the season here last Friday night, 6-0, to Claf- ion. ' The loss gave the Bulldogs third place in the North Central Conference, behind Webster City and Clear Lake. The contest also marked the final high school game for seven senior squad members, Randy Harrhes, Lynn Kueck, Bob Post, G-ary Priebe, Gary Rusk and Chuck Clarion in Streit, as well as Bob Ellefson Sona 25. who has not been able to play since an injury of two weeks ago. Perhaps it was to be expected after the outstanding play of \a\ week ago in downing Clear Lake at Homecoming here, but the Bulldogs were not quite up to par in this one, although they played on about even terms with Ilarion as the statistics show. Both teams battled most of the ;ime between 20 yard lines. Bulldogs In Hole Algona kicked off, and after, me Clarion first down got the sail back in a kick to its own 28. A 15-yard penalty put the Bulldogs in the hole at once, ana Clarion intercepted a pass on the next play, returning to the Al- ;ona 30.. Ground gains and a ump pass took it to the Algona, iut here the Bulldogs stiffened, with Smith, Helmke and Kelly- leading the charge, and took over ggi downs, s Shackleford - punteckL out to his own- 45, a :nice kick?*'* Three plays and Clarion puntet! to the Algona 23. As the quarter ended a" Waller to Williams pass moved the pigskin out to the Algona 40. Rich Hutchins receiving a back injury in the first few, minutes, was replaced by Kueck. Wetzel and Kueck made it a ' first down on the Clarion 45 1 but Clarion held and Algona ' punted again, only to get the ! ball back the same way four ' plays later. At this point a pass to Chuck Streit went to the Clarion 20, but the play was nullified •! by an Algona illegal procedure ' penalty. The Bulldogs passcJ i again to Wetzel on the Clarion 45, but the next toss was intercepted by Clarion. A few plays later one of the most curious decisions of the season took place. Clar- ion's punt was blocked 12 • 'yards short of a first down ft by Algona. The officials gave , Ihe ball back io Clarion with a first down. Algona never did have possession. The officials later privately admitted they had erred in this decision, but at the time it -went as ordered. The 'half ended with Clarion in possession on the Alona 25. ' . The third quarter was all seesaw, with intercepted passes and fumbles involved, as well as penalties. A nice Kueck run of 10 yards was nullified and Algona penalized back to its 2 Ms yard line as the quarter ended. But Algona crossed up Clarion here and instead of kicking, Kueck made a first down, a Waller to Williams toss went to the 36, and another to Kueck went to the Clarion 45. It looked a? though the Bulldogs might have something- • cooking, but Clarion stiffened, and Shackleford punted to the visitor's 15, a nice kick- into the wind.
