8-AfflMifl (la.) Upp«r Ddi Molnw Tuesday, November 23, 1954 bulldog's Zip Pleases King ".We're looking better" was the last-minute report by Coach Bob King on the eve. of the Algona Bulldogs' visit to Clarion tonight (Tuesday). •• . The team looked the best it has since drills Started two weeks ago in a spirited scrimmage Mon* day afternoon. :The rebounding still didn't look tip-top, but some of the other rough spots seem to be smoothing themselves out with practice. Shooing has improved, and ball-handling apparently is starting to come, but still looks like early season fum- , blitis will have to be conquered io make a contender oul of the Bulldogs during ihe conference season. Jim Galbraith and Don Cook are the 2 men who have impressed King the most so far, and a pair of juniors, Bob Harms and Lirjn Nelson, have shown no fear of advancing to the varsity squad. Besides Galbraith and Cook, Nidas Dermand, Doug Meyer, Pete Lahgmack and Larry Christcnsen will probably see most of the action tonight. Rod Kickbush, another junior, larger than Harms and Nelson, is certain to get into the fray. His rebounding has been on the upswing, and the team probably will need plenty of that valuable asset to get anywhere. "Installing this new offense has hurt our rebounding", stated King, "we've had to spend most of our time learning how to score, and we don't know yet how to get proper position to snag those rebounds." Disappointing so far has been the inability of,most of the men to go after loose balls, a characteristic that must become a part of the game, or the other team gains a terrific advantage. King hopes that as soon as a little game experience is gained, this item will come naturally. It looks like a very interesting season is in store for local fans, with several good teams in the conference ready to give the Bulldogs all they want in the way of a battle, and maybe a little bit more.
