World Day of Prayer to be February 10 Kiwanis hosted wrestlers for appreciation dinner The Humboldt chapter of Kl- wants hosted the Humboldt Community High School wrestling team for an appreciation dinner at Johnny's Steak Harbor in Humboldt Thursday noon, February 2, with wrestling coach Joe Fltoh as the guest speaker. Mr. Fitch introduced each of the matmen and gave a brief summary of Individual and team accomplishments for the season. He noted that Humboldt completed their fourth year of var- sity dual competition with a 9-3 record, "as good as Hampton, a noted wrestling school for some years, has ever done." He singled out seniors Mark Daggy, 133 pounder, and Bob Short, 154 pounder, for their exceptional records as they have a combined total of 33 wins as compared to one loss and two ties. These two wrestlers gave a demonstration of the different types of moves, counter moves, holds, and counter holds under the direction of Joe Fitch to show not only how and why a high school wrestler moves, but to also demonstrate the scoring system. To conclude the demonstration, the two were turned loose for a short match on their own to demonstrate the actual speed of real competition. Coach Fitch also credited underclassmen for helping to compile the winning season. Last year HHS had four winning wrestlers on the varsity squad while there were nine this year with three of the winning grapplers being sophomores and two juniors. There are 12 wrestlers on a squad. Announcements during the meeting included that the reor- ganlzational meeting of Cub Scout Pack 33 of Humboldt will be held at the Tart School Wednesday evening, February 8, and that the Kiwanis will also sponsor a return trip to Humboldt of the Fort Dodge Civic Glee Club, tentatively scheduled for AoriL-10, Guests other than the 32 wrestlers were Orln Nelson, Humboldt County auditor, and Delmar De- Smldt, foreman of the Humboldt Printing Company.
