And he really knows his teams. He has been staying here in Algona since Feb. 14, 1954, and is receiving care for muscular dis- Irophy, the disease that made him a partial cripple early in life. Muscular dish-ophy may have crippled Bob physically, but' it certainly has left no -effect on his outlook or astute way of thinking. Any talk with him rapidly gets to his favorite subject— sports. There are no lines drawn, and no major sport will be missed when Bob gets going. He'll give you the low-down on basketball, baseball, football, boxing and wrestling, and pull no punches. He likes the St. Louis Cardinals better than any other team, and says baseball is his favorite sport. "When a man hits a homer n the last of the tenth to win the jame, that's something," says Bob and he's got a point there. He started following the Cards in .941 and has been loyal since that ,ime. He doesn't care too much about the American League, al- hough "the White Sox would get the nod because of their hustle," according to him. Likes lov/a Spoils Iowa's Hawkeye basketball and -•"~" teams get most of ! Bob'».. Mention during the year, outside of baseball. He thinks Bucky O'Connor's basketball teams are remendous, and Forest Evashev- ki rates right with Bud Wilkin- on of Oklahoma on Bob's list of op football 'coaches. His love of boxing has been omewhat dimmed due to thu act that he is not satisfied with he way the racketeers have aken over the sport, and as far s Rocky Marciano, heavyweight hamp,- is concerned, he certain- y doesn't rank with the all-time ;reats in Bob's book. Russell Cole, who lives south f Algona, sometimes takes Bob iut to his horne .Saturday nights o watch the pro wrestling. "I'm not impressed with it too much, Ithough it's worth a lot of aughs" stated Bob. Bob was stricken with scarlet ever when-eight years old, and ince that time life has been a eries of ups and downs. He was Jft in a weakened condition after hat attack, and 5 years later was aken to Iowa City for observa- ion and the discovery of mus- ular "distrophy, School At Home His schooling, from the second semester of eighth grade until graduation was through an intercommunication system rigged up directly between his home and the school. Hobbies and a small greeting :ard business have filled most of lis time since high school. The nost important thing about his Dusiness is the chance he gets to meet people, which he enjoys very much. Bob's father, Alvin, died in 1949. His mother, :Mrs Cloy Nessen, cared for him all the time until about a year ago when she mderwent surgery. When^the Hawkeyes, Chicago "' or ably not even the coaches spend as much time as' Bob does 'trying to figure out what could have been done to prevent' the defeat, and because of this love for sports, Bob Bass sincerely hopes some day to go to a major league baseball game to see the stars in action.

The Bulldogs wind up their pre-holiday activity when Storm Lake comes to town -Thursday for a tangle with the locals. Win From "Outside" Deadly out-shooting from the outside got the Bulldogs their win over Hampton, as the home team had an invulnerable inner defense that save Algonn trouble all night. Bob Wagner,'6'5", and Larry Wise, 6'3" .sophomore, put the shackles on Doug Meyer, who got into trouble early on fouls, but Jim Galbraith, Nidas ,Dermand and Larry Christensen were hot and their shooting carried the Bulldogs home with the win.

The game featured some of the best shooting seen for many a night, as the E-Hawks hit 51 percent of their attempts from the field—AND LOST. The visitors tried 41 shots and hit 21 during the contest, while Algona had a very respectable 39 percent mark on 22 field goals in 56 tries. The tact that the Bulldogs hit 50 percent the final half probably saved the game. Jim Galbraith kept the Bulldogs in the game during the first quarter, which found Emmetsburtf leading 11-10 at the buzzer. Galbraith counted six of the Algona points. during the first eight minutes, and garnered another three baskets during a second period onslaught that saw the locals lead by six points a couple of times. The E-Hawks cut the Algona margin to 28-26 at halftime, however, and gave the visitors a halftime shooting percentage of 60 percent. Algona led by six points, 38-32, late in the third quarter and appeared to be finally on their way to a comfortable margin. Emmetsburg capitalized on Algona mistakes and some hot shooting to tie the count, 38-38, at the end' of the period. The E-Hawks went ahead, 4038, before the Bulldogs came on with a vengeance to take the game. Algona rolled to a 51-44 lead at the midway point in the final stanza and clung to the bulge tenaciously to the end. Balanced scoring brought the win to the Bulldogs, with four men over the ten-point mark. Doug Meyer, who took over most of the rebounding during the last half, led the scorers with 15 points', tyarry Christensen, after a cold first half, came up .with 14 carried the scoring load during the first half. Nidas Dermand flipped in 11 and Don Cook scored one field goal while turning in a fine floor game. The defensive work of Christensen, Cook and Dermand was outstanding most of the time. Johnson led the E-Hawks with 23 points as he put on a terrific shooting exhibition. The Algona B-team lost, 28-19, in the opener.
