Sheldon Garrigan Tonight, Saturday For Midget Cagers Will Estherville's basketball team survive the withdrawal pains of no longer playing Storm Lake and Cherokee? Cm anyone convince the Midgets there is, indeed, anotherteam in the league besides the Tornadoes and Braves. After four losses to the front runners of the Lakes Conference this season, Estherville hits the road this weekend, traveling to Sheldon Friday night for conference action, then" takes a road trip to Algona Saturday to tangle with the Golden Bears of Garrigan. The Midgets then wrap up conference action and regular season play Feb. 18 at Spirit Lake before heading into tournament action against Emmetsburg Feb. 28 in their final home appearance of the season. The Midgets, currently with an 8-4 record in the Lakes, can wrap up sole possession of third place with a win tonight against Sheldon or could win third place should Spencer fall to Cherokee, both likely possibilities. Spencer could still tie the Midgets with two games left. In the first meeting between the Orabs and Midgets, Estherville can ground out a 83-47 win breaking the game open early, finding three players in the double figures and 11 players in the scoring column. Bob Grems, in one of his best performances of the year, hit 28 points, Scott Summa had 12 points, and Doug Brandt pumped in 10 points in a reserve role. Sheldon was led by Pat Kappes and Jeff Esbeck with 10 points each. In other games in the Lakes, Storm Lake will travel to Spirit Lake in a bid to retain the conference lead going into the final conference game of the season against Cherokee the following Friday. Storm Lake won the first meeting of the teams by a 8037 margin. Cherokee will be attempting to keep pressure on the Tornadoes in cage action at Spencer. The Braves, posting an 11-1 conference record, pounded the Tigers 81-55 in the first meeting of the reams in December. Emmetsburg, whenhostingSib- ley, will be eying in getting safely out of reach of Spirit Lake for the cellar slot. The E41awks are currently 2-10 while Spirit Lake 1-11. In the first Emmetsburg-Sibley contest, Sibley rolled to an 89-55 win. Cherokee continues to top Lakes foes offensively, averaging 80.3 points a game with 885 points in the 13 games widening their lead over the Midgets in the past two weeks. Estherville, however, remains second with a 76.3 average and Storm Lake with a 72.1 average is third. Defensively, Storm Lake tops the list with a 45.1 average, Estherville again is second with a 58.4 mark, andSpencerthirdwith a 59.9 average.

Wisconsin, with one of its better teams, will be the Friday night foe in the second half of a i wrestling — gymnastics doubleheader. Saturday the defending champions in the NCAA college division— Cal Poly— will be the foe. The prospect of the Iowa State — Cal Poly confrontation — along with the growing reputation of heavyweight Chris Taylor — has attracted Sports Illustrated magazine to the meet. The SI wrestling expert Herman Weiskhoff, who has done a number of stories in the past that featured Iowa State wrestling, will be on hand for both meets. There will be a central Iowa flavor to the opening match of the Wisconsin meet. Dan Mallinger, who wrestled for St. Edmonds of Fort Dodge, will face Jeff Saggau, who placed second in the 1971 prep state meet while representing Boone. Cal Poly brings an 11-4 mark here. Gary McBride, defending NCAA college champion at 118, is the leader of the Cal Poly team. Larry Morgan at 142, Glenn Anderson at 150, and Frank Lucio at 190 are the other top performers. Wisconsin, rebuilding its mat program, whipped Northwestern last week, headed by a 6 :21 pin Sportsmen Can Plan Vacations Sportsmen planning their vacations to coincide with Iowa's 1972-73 hunting seasons may make plans with the announcement of three opening dates by the State Conservation Commission. Pheasant hunters should circle Nov. 11 on their calendar for the opening of Iowa's pheasant season. Hungarian partridge become legal quarry on this date also. Bobwhite quail hunting opens Oct.. 28 while squirrel and rabbit starting date is Sept. 9. Season length and bag limits on the above species and opening dates, bag limits and length of seasons on waterfowl, deer and other game species will be an- ounced later in the year after essential biological data has been analyzed. of Doug Newman by Saggau. The feature match with the Badgers should occur at 167. Carl Adams, the 1971 NCAA champion, will meet freshman Ed Vatch. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Fourteen of the Top 20 ranked teams in the state will see action Saturday night as sectional play begins in the 1972 Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union state basketball tournament. ^ U By Feb. 19, some 363 teams will have played sectional games in the first step toward the state tournament March 711 in Des Moines. Swinging into action Saturday night in the area will be Marathon playing Swea City at 6:30 p.m. and Ringsted meeting Terril at 8 p.m. at Terril and Lincoln Central playing Arnolds Park at 6:30 p.m. and Ruthven meeting Armstrong at 8 p.m. in two games at Armstrong. Action in the sectional will resume Monday night with South Clay and Sentral joining the action against first round winners at Fenton, and Ayrshire and Graettinger swinging into action at Ayrshire against first round winners. Defending state champion— and top-ranked— Farragut, a winner of 52 straight games over two seasons, drew a bye and will hot see action until Monday.^ wi >r agut, unbeaten in 22 Sports Thanks For Little Girls By JACK STEVENSON Associated Press Sports Writer SAPPORO, Japan (AP) - As the song says: "Thank Heavens For Little Girls ... " Without 'em the United States wouldn't have a medal to show for its efforts in the 11th Winter Olympic Games. But with 'em, America's got six tucked away, three of them golds, which makes this its most successful winter Olympics in two decades. The third gold came rocketing out of a heavy snowstorm Friday in the personage of Barbara Cochran, a 20-year-old skiing whiz from Richmond, Vt., who mad-dashed her way to victory in the women's special slalom. It came only two hours after Anne Henning put the third American bronze medal on the board in the 1,000-meter speed skating. The 16-year-old miss from Northbrook, 111., who had won the 500 meters on Thursday, finished less than a quarter of a second behind West German winner Monika Pflug. The American men, shut out thus far, tried Friday night to get their first medal in the figure skating—but chances were slim at best. Ken Shelley of Downey, Calif., was fifth, John Mischa Petkevitch sixth and Gordon McKellen 10th as the free skating finals began. Miss Cochran, who managed to finish only 11th in the giant slalom, brought America its first gold in Alpine skiing—the men have never won that Olympic event- since the 1952 Games in Oslo, Norway, when the United States finished with four golds. She did it with an all-or-nothing effort that resulted in a fastest first-run time of 46.05 seconds, when she was first down the slope, and a second- fastest time of 45.19 on the second run for a total time of 1:31.24, an incredibly scant two hundredths of a second less than silver medalist Danielle Debernard of France. "This is definitely my mind of course," Barbara said after her triumph, which was cli­ maxed by a kissing, hugging mob scene and a brief victory ride on the shoulders of her ecstatic teammates and coaches. "I usually do better on a steep course than a turning one." After being the initial skier in the first run- "I liked the No. 1 start ... because there was a light snow cover"— she was 15th in the second, when the snow really began coming down. "I didn't watch any of the first 14," she said, "because I didn't want to know the times and, if they were having trouble, I didn't want to see them." She probably couldn't have, anyway, because of the downfall. Asked how she felt about recent criticism that American athletes are too soft, she replied: "I think our skiers train as hard as anyone— and the results today prove it!" The Northbrook crowd, which has had plenty to cheer about, was ready for more as Miss Henning and Dlanne Holum, gold medalist in the 1,500 meters, prepared to fulfill their roles as favorites in the 1,000 meters. But suddenly, there was Miss Pflug, the 17-year-old outsider, gaining the glory with her Olympic-record 1:31,40. Atje Keulen-Deelstra of The Netherlands took the silver in 1:31.61 and Anne got the bronze in 1:31.62. Dianne wound up sixth at 1:32.51. Li Friday's other finals, Poland's Wejchiech Fortuna soared a magnificent 364 feet 2 inches in the first of two runs In the 90-meter ski jump, more than enough to win the gold. And the Soviet Union defended its Olympic title in the biathlon relay. In the four-man bobsled, Switzerland held the lead at the halfway mark. The remaining two runs are scheduled for Saturday. West Germany was second and Italy third. One American team was disqualified in the first heat when its members fell off the sled as it overturned. The No. 2 U.S. team was 12th after the first two runs. Fortuna, whose second jump was 287-1 for a total of 219.9 points, captured the event which many observers had expected to go to the Japanese, who swept the 70 meters. Yukio Kasaya, took the 70-meter gold but was seventh in the 90 meters. Second was Switzerland's Walter Steiner, who got the silver with 219.8 points. The bronze went to East Germany's Rainer Schmidt with 219.3. The best American was Ron Steele of Leavenworth, Wash., a distant 25th with 177.7. Behind the victorious Russian biathlon team were Finland and East Germany, with the United States a surprisingly high sixth, its best Olympic finish ever. Fishing Seasons Close Tuesday- iov/a 's walleye, sauger and northern pike fishings seasons close in the state's natural lakes on Tuesday, Feb. 15, 1972 reminded the State Conservation Commission. There is a continous open season for walleyes, sauger and northern pike in all streams, Missouri and Mississippi River oxbow lakes and artificial lakes. The Conservation Commission also reminded ice fishermen that their ice fishing houses must be removed from state - owned waters on or before Feb. 20, 1972. Fishermen must remove any refuse they have carried onto the ice or left on the shore nearby. Cans, bottles and other litter detract from the beauty of the shoreline and pollute the water. games this season, will play the winner of the Hamburg-Essex games at Farragut in the first step to retain the title it won by defeating Mediapolis 67-60 last March. "There are about 60 teams in my opinion that are capable of winning the state tournament," said Farragut Coach Leon Plummer when questioned about the Adettes' chances of ^repeating. Only seven teams in the, 47- year history of the tournament have managed back-to-back titles and no team has ever won three straight. "We have several tough teams in the area," added Plummer. "Malvern and Stanton are tough in our sectional and Avo-Ha, Neola, Lewis Central and Glenwood in the other half of the sectional." Malvern, 16-3, poses the most immediate threat to the Adettes. All three Malvern losses have been to Farragut, but the last was a 62-61 double overtime defeat in the finals of the Corner Conference Tournament two weeks ago. "There is probably a little more pressure on us than last year," admitted Plummer, whose team was ranked No. 6 starting sectional play last year. Back from the state title team are two of the top three forwards— Becky Albright and Janelle Gruber—plus the top four guards. Farragut is only one of five unbeaten teams left in the state as sectional play begins. Others are No. 3 Hubbard (20-0), No. 4 Rockford (20-0), No. 11 Midland of Wyoming (200) and No. 18 Onawa West Monona (16-0). No. 12 Carlile 08-1) lost its unbeaten status Thursday night in falling 62-60 to State Center West Marshall— one of the state tournament teams a year ago. Plummer said that No. 5 Mediapolis, 20-1 and a loser to only Wlnfield-Mt. Union last week, and second-ranked West Central pi.Maynard <?0-D appeared to be early titie threats. Mediapolis, the last team to beat Farragut, reeled off 20 victories before falling 73-60 to No. 9 Winfield-Mt. Union (17-2) last Friday. Mediapolis had been second ranked. West Central is led by prolific Deb Kaune, who scored a season's high 88 points last Tuesday in a 111-51 victory over Fayette. MacGregor Mar-Mac provides the opposition for West Central in a sectional opener Saturday at Monona. Miss Kaune is among the state's top scorers with a 48.1 point average. Besides Farragut, the only ranked teams not in action Saturday are No. 10 Hinton (21-1), No. 12 Carlisle, No. 13 Manilla (16-1), No. 13 LeGrand LDF (18-1) and No. 17 Lenox (19-1). The leading scorer in the state going into sectional play is Nina Rasmus sen of Zearing Nesco with a 51.4 average in 19 games. The sectional champions, runners-up and consolation winners advance to the district meets Feb. 22, 25 and 26 and the 16 district victors go to the state. Nationwide television shows notwithstanding, farmers are getting only 72 per cent of parity, or a fair price, compared with their costs of production, President George Mart of the Emmet County NFO said today. Parity is the standard measurement of farm returns. It is an official ratio that reflects both prices paid to farmers and the rising costs of machinery, taxes, and other production items. Mart was critical of a recent national television program that showed shoppers walking past meat counters, contending it failed to inform viewers what the farmer received for the various meat items involved. "The Department of Agriculture's reports in January show beef producers were doing the best in years with prices up to 88 per cent of parity," he said. "Hogs were bringing only 76 per cent of parity, turkeys were bringing 68 per cent, lambs were bringing 72 per cent, and eggs were bringing only 49 per cent." Mart said grain producers weren't doing even that well. "Wheat, which makes up about one-tenth of the cost of a loaf of bread, was bringing only 45 per cent of parity in the market in mid-January," he said. "Corn at the farm was bringing only 56 per cent of parity, milk was 69 per cent soybeans 72 per cent, rye 53 per cent, and grain sorghum 59 per cent." The NFO president said it is ridiculous to charge farmers with getting excessive prices and particularly to blame them for retail prices which include all the markups of processors, handlers and other middlemen. "There's less than 3 cents worth of wheat in the pound loaves of bread being sold for 26 to 30 cents a loaf at retail," he said. "The farmer was getting more Mrs. Ethel D.

Mart noted that Congress authorized price ceilings on farm products at not less than 110 per cent of parity during World War n. "We have a long way to go to reach that level, or to reach economic security for farmers, with these prices," he said. "The final testof whether farm prices are fair is what is happening to the farmers and with about 2,000 a week selling or being closed out, it is obvious they arc far short of prices that provide cost of production plus a reasonable profit." "Beyond old farmers closing out, the hopes of thousands of young farm people to get started on the land are crushed every year. There is no future for them. "Farm people should let broadcasters who misrepresent the farm situation know what they think, emphatically." Peace Talks PARIS (AP) — Communist delegates to the Vietnam peace talks charged today that President Nixon is "planning new military adventures" in Vietnam by beefing up U.S. air forces there. Chief U.S. delegate William J. Porter countered with a charge that Hanoi is attempting to deceive public opinion by refusing to allow inspection of prisoner of war camps. Porter also said the U.S. might not agree to a date for the next meeting until he can "assess the atmosphere" resulting from an antiwar meeting to be held near Paris tills weekend.
