IF IT'S NEWS — WE WANT IT GRID GUESSERS CONTEST KOSSUTH COUNTY West Bend Wins Football Title; Bode Ties In Loop - By Ol' ManTtfose Well the Old Man had a real chore this week, finding the winners from last Saturday's football contest. In fact it took a long distance call to Brad Wilson at the Register to find out how two of the games came out, both in the southwest' and played Saturday night. ... But there is no doubt about the winner. He is Keith Bellinger, Fenlon young man, who MISSED .ONLY TWO GAMES, and one of those was a tie. Nobody came close to Keith, who ..wins the, S10 award. Missing four games'were quite a few.'guessers, but on the basis of high total points for any one game.'Mrs L. S. Young of Algona wins the $3 prize with 59 points, and the third place award of $2 will have to be divided between "Xouis G. Lenz and Mrs Garland Biradley. both of Algona, who picked 62 for the high score total. It actually was 56. Also missing only four games were Mrs James Esser. Mrs Eleanor Mowers, David Kohl, Olive Rosmann. 'J. F. Moe, Mrs Melvin Kern, Barbara Barilett, Roseanne Erpelding. Mrs Lyle Black, "all of Algona, Mrs Glen , Miller, Ti- ionka, Dennis Schoby, Bode, Andy Krominga. Titonka, and Kenneth Sarchet, Burl., Notice .how the ladies are running way! ahead of the men'in guessing these games. ,. ^ .-•-..,, There was a tremendous'pile of entries who missed only '' five games, and the same with six and seven all the way.' down to 11 games missed, where* we find four contestants sharing the Mourner's Bench for the week — Mrs Marlin Schiltz of Bancroft, Howard Thompson of Armstrong, Elden Meyer of Oltosen and Jeanne Ann Friders and Mrs Chester Webb of Algona. Two of those are ex-winners. . What amazed the Old Man was that several guessers picked Indiana to knock off Michigan. Most of the contestants sold Washington State short, and surprisingly enough many picked Wisconsin and Michigan State, as the experts advised them to do, but they were wrong. In today's Algona Upper Des Moines is this week's list of games. Get your entry in before Saturday noon, or postmarked by that time. Several entries could not be counted this week as the postmarks were well after noon on Saturday. The entry list ihis week probably set a new all-time high, with 511 participating. West Bend won the undisputed championship 61 the Cornbelt Conference, last Friday night, despite the fact that Mallard held the undefeated West Bend team to a 7-7 tie in a conference game.

"Titonka, the other Kossuth member of the Cornbelt Conference, ended its season with a record of four defeats and one tie in conference play, and a season record of one win, five losses and one tie. The Bode Tigers, a, team that lost seven out of eight games last season, came into their own this season to win five and tie one in seven starts and capture a share of the 4-C conference championship. > The Tigers, after played to a 6-6 tie with subsequently unbeaten West Bend in their opener, racked up victories over Lytton 24-7, Dows, 14-6, Gilmore 13-6, and Renwick 20-0 before losing to Ventura 27-12. Last Friday they thumped Livermore 28-7 while Dows took care of Ventura 18-0 to throw the 4-C championship into a three- way tie among Bode, Dows and Ventura all with 4-1 marks. Bulldogs Scrap Humboldt In Season Final Tonight Trojans Hold For Half But Yield, 31 Tott Swea City's Trojans put up a gallant first half fight against Buffalo Center, last Friday night, but wilted against superior manpower in the second half, to close the 1954 football season with a 31 to 13 loss. was. scoreless. •_. n "the thirdvquarter, however, the Buffalo Center team got rolling and tallied two touchdowns. In the final quarter the Buff alos snagged 19 more points, but Swea gave the Kossuth fans something to cheer for, also, when Don Johnson scampered 54 yards and Allen Johnson snagged a kickoff and returned 80 yards for the two Trojan touchdowns.

The Bulldogs close the season Wednesday night (Nov. 3) when Humboldi's Wildcats come to town for an encounter at the fairgrounds. The locals wil be trying for their third straight win and second in conference play. Algona now has a 3-5 season mark. • Algona meant business from the .opening whistle, banging down- field as far as the Iowa Falls six yard line right after the kickoff. An interception stalled the drive, and gave Iowa Falls the ball on its own 11. Don Cook : and Doug Meyer spearheaded the 56-yard advance, with the longest gain coming on a 20-yard pass from Meyer to' end Jim Galbraith. The Bulldogs got the ball back on the first play, as Bob Silvest of the Cadets fumbled, and Har- iey Troutman fell on the ball for Algona on the Cadet 12. Sophomore Ted Finley, quarterbacking Coach Tony Guzowski's outfit, was tossed for a four- yard loss on the first play, and Cook lost two on a pitchout on the next attempt. Left Handed Pass Tallies Trickery in the backfield on the next play paid off with the firs't TD of the game. Cook ended up with the ball, and his left handed pitch ended up In the hands of Galbraith on the two, and he stepped into the end zone. Galbraith backtracked to make the catch as the throw was behind him, and it paid off with six points. Cook's attempted place- kick was wide, and Algona led, 6-0, with less than three minutes remaining in the first quarter. Iowa Falls marched back for the tying points right after the next kickoff. The drive began on the Iowa Falls 18, and Silvest went over from the two for the TD midway in the second quarter. His runs were instrumental all through the 82-yard parade to score. His attempt on a smash for the extra point was stopped, and it'was 6-6.. It didn't take the Bulldogs long id; get back in front. Cook blasted back with the kickoff to the Algona 32, and the stage was set. Meyer went two yards on the first play, and gave the fans plenty to shout about as he went 66 yards on the second. He smashed into the line, was apparently about to be tackled two or three times, but managed to drive on into the open to score going away. This time Cook's place- kick was good, and Algona led, 13-6. Meyer Races Again Lightning struck again two minutes later. Algona kicked off, and Iowa Falls gained only two yards in three tries. Cook, returned the punt from the midfield stripe to the low'a Falls 44, and Meyer took over. It was practically the same run as the first. Doug was apparently stopped 2 or 3 times, but he kept driving, finally going to the outside for 44 yards and the TD that made it 19-6. Cook's placement was perfect, and it was NORTH CENTRAL CONFERENCE W L Eagle Grove — 0 0 Iowa Falls 4 2 Clear Lake — 4 2 Webster City 4 2 Clarion - 2 4 Hampton 2 4 Algona 1 5 Humboldt 1 5 Eagle Grove stayed on the unbeaten trail and cinched the North Central Conference championship with a 12-0 win over Clear Lake, Webster City downed Humboldt 20-0, and Hampton took Clarion, 27-14, In other games Friday night. the Al- Cadets when he intercepted a pass that gave the Bulldogs the ball on the Iowa Falls 45 yard line. Iowa Falls got the ball right back, as Meyer fumbled while attempting a pass, Cadets recovering on the gona 42. Ten plays later, the Cadets had a touchdown as Word Anderson scored from the three. Silvest smashed for the extra point, and Algona's lead was chopped to seven points, 20-13. Although there was no moro scoring in the contest thrills were plentiful as the defenses asserted themselves to halt all threats by both teams. The big turning point of the game was brought about by Howan the next time the Cadets got their hands ,on the ball. A Timely Recovery Starting from their own 35 after stopping an Algona threat, the Cadets banged their way to the Algona 30 in just five plays, and were apparently on their way to tying the score. A crashing tackle by Jim when Anderson attempted a late pitchout knocked the' ball loose, and Cowan recovered on the Algona 33. The Bulldogs started their last drive from there. A five yard penalty was more than made up when Meyer slashed, his way for 27 yards to the Iowa Falls 43. -Algona went on to the 24, but a penalty, and a running play on fouth down gave the ball to the Cadets with very little time remaining. Iowa Falls jammed nine plays into the time, including eight passes. - Silvest was handling the throwing, along with Anderson. Two times receivers dropped pitches that were right on the button, and even with dismal luck, the Cadets went to the Algona 32 with only seconds remaining. Silvest faded, and as the buzzer sounded, ending the game, he fired the last pitch complete to Schalk on the Algona 10. Schalk was taken care of, and the game was over. ' Algona operated out of the sln- g]£ wing with success during the night, although the T worked fine with young Finley at the controls. Bill Fain, regular quarterback, was on the bench with an injury, as was linebacker Jerry Downey, during the entire game. While the defence, wasn't the best ever seen, it was improved greatly over last week, and was probably as effective as any used all 20-6. two The TD was the second in consecutive carries that coyered 110 yards and actually put. the game on ice as Meyer demonstrated the best running of his career. 4 Iowa Falls, aided by a 15-yard penalty on the Bulldogs, and a pass from Silvest to Jim Schalk good for 16 yards, advanced to the Algona 30, but lost the ball on downs as the half ended. Jim Cowan, freshman halfback who was outstanding all night on defense for the locals, halted an early second half drive by the TRAPPERS The 1954-1955 Trapping SEASONS Open At 12:00 o'clock Noon, November 10 for RACCOON, SKUNK, CIVET-CAT, BADGERS.

There were usual in this more one. stars than Meyer, o£ course, was the outstanding man on the field, offensively, while Don Cook once again was a demon on defense. The switch of Joe Troutman to a lineback- ing job seemed to work well, as Joe came up with plenty of good, jarring tackles. Frank Kern, Terry Cook, Phil Schneider, Dub Jensen, Dick Davis and Harley Troutman all had a hand in the win in the line, and Jim Cowan, who was always there at the right time, Ted Finley, classy little quarterback, and Loren Nelson, back after a knee injury, gave lots of help to Meyer and Cook, in th Statistics Even Statistically, the teams were evenly matched, with the Cadets holding a 247-240 edge in total yardage.
