KOSSUTH COUNTY Two Sets Brothers All Track Meet Points Brothers Jim and Jerry Cowan gave Algona practically all of its points in the district track meet at Eagle Grove Friday, and each won a chance to compete in the state meet at Ames tomorrow. Friday, May 17. The Cowans 'tied for first place in the high jump event with flights of 5'4M>" as Algona finished fifth in the six-team class A division of the district. Eagle Grove took the team title with 87 points, then came Humboldt 83%, Jefferson 62 2/3, Clarion 48 1/3, Algona 15, and St. Edmond's of Fort Dodge 12. Only two members of the Algona squad besides the Cowans finished fifth or better in any event, and they were anothefc- pair of brothers, Darrel and Garry Davis. Darrel wound up fourth in the shot put, while Garry took fifth in the 100 yard dash. There's a possibility Darrel may get to make the trip to the state meet as ' his discus toss, while not good enough for first or second place, may have been better than throws in other district meets around the state. The high school athletic association will make the ruling which may or may not send Darrel to Ames Friday. A conflict with the scheduled junior-senior banquet and all- night party, alsd held Friday, made it impossible for many of the track members to compete in the district. It is doubtful if the locals could have overtaken 4th place Clarion even if the entire team had made the trip.
