; - Cbabh Jason: Moving, of Algoha hi|h> school isn't the happiest mentor in the' North Central Conference, even though his squad df 38 Has shown. some .improvement since 1 the opening practice Aug. 24. "We've got a green ball club," said Jase, who continued, "not\ green because we have a large group 6f freshmen, but rather, because we have so many seniors that are inexperienced. Our biggest problem to date is the fact that most of the older men have been out for football less than two years." In the meantime, practices that began a little over a week ago continue, with the coacHes, players and fans all keeping an eye on this schedule of games: Sept 9—Emmetsburg, here Sept. 16—Webster Cicy, here Sept. 23—Eagle Grove, there Sept. 30—Hampton, there Oct. 7—Clear Lake, here ' Oct. 14—Clarion, here . Oct. 28—Iowa Falls, there Nov. 2—Humboldt,, there So far, squad moral has been good, and the new coach is certain the local outfit will play interesting ball—but he • isn't'pre- dicting any scores. ' The prime effort right now is centered on improvement of § the speed of..all the players., Right now it'i^n't good. The players seem to be picking up Jase's single-wing attack all-right, and several hava shown quite a bit of improvement. Signal-callers Ted Finley and Harvey Peglow; tackles Dave Setter and Fred Strahorn and- guard Terry Cook came in for special mention during the first week. Head Coach -Loving and his assistants, Bob King and Champ Martin, are making every effoii to get • more freshmen out and keep them on the squad. They look real good, according to' the coaches, and will not to be usea as a hamburger squad, during practice .sessions, * • Ball-carrying, duties so- far have been • handled by Doug Meyer, Finley, Jim Cowan and Dav$ -Richard^on^but,nothing .Js, de'firifteiy set as' far as" a starting line-up for the opener is concerned. • . Conditioning will continue at a rapid 'i^jce. Due to a definite lack of depth, injuries could mangle the plans of the locals, so every man must be in top shape by the time the opening whistle gets the season underway Sept. 9 at the fairgrounds. HOW OTHER LOOP SQUADS 'APPEAR The North Central Conference outlook is clouded, but with two or three possible exceptions, most of the league teams should be improved'over last season. Last year's undefeated champs, the Eagle Grove Eagles, are f an unknown quantity. They have a new coach, Dick Palm, who was selected to replace Al DiMarco. DiMarcb moved to Dowling in Des Moines, taking with him a fine record. Palm cannot improve very much on last year's record, and he must take up the slack left by graduation. The Eagles do have some tried men to build around, so could bo tough again. Webster City has four regulars, two backs and two linemen back, and Coach Harley Rollinger has a large group of promising newcomers on 'hand, so could come up with another conference champion. The team will be bigger than a year ago and will have lots more depth. Iowa Falls.has a new coach. He is Don Prior, and he took the reigns from Joe McNeill of Algona, who had a very fine record in Cadetland before leaving. They had a 4-3 copference record last year, lost some regulars, so new squad members could be the answer. ' Clear Lake could be a patent contender. Coach Dyle Martin has several lettennen back, plus a nice big group of newcomers. The Lions hud a 4-3-1 season mark a year agu, including a 13-0 upset o'f Webster City. They cotild be the learn to watch. Clarion's new coach, Dick Garth, who succeeds Tom Hand, will have a young squad. Many of them got valuable experience a year ago, and might be ready to run wild now. Tha replacement problem isn't too severe, as many of the regulars were sophomores last season. Coach Roger Froet had a 2-4-1 conference record a year ago and has many of his 1954 men back for another try- The Bulldogs are almost curtain to 'improve on that record and will probably pull a couple of upsets during tb$ fall Humboldt Coach Al Hadar has 15 lettennen back, and despitu the fact the Wildcats finished in the loop basement last year with a 1-6 mark, they look Jiku a vastly improved group. After two consecutive poor seasons, conference foes can look for something surprising out of the Wildcats. Ha4w doesn't like to lose, so if .he can assemble the proper individuals into-*i» system^ the rest of the league • better look out. Balance ambng'the eight league teams should be better, than last year, with a better race sure to develop. Bancroft Takes Second Place In League Final A pair of Bancroft Lion baseball players copped top marks during Iowa State League base- pall action, according to official figures released Tuesday after- ncton. ' • Johnny Hill the best jitching record. His 12-5 Won-lost nark was two victories ahead-of lich Kbolbeck, Mason City's ace. Johnny also worked more innings on'the*hill, 148, than any other eague chucker.' 'C Dick Anderson, outfielder- shortstop, came on, with' a rush to take the loop batting crown. The Minnesota University star can It through with , a .387 mark b.» slamming out 60 hits in 155 tries. He hit two'homers an'd drove home 39 runs, third best in the loop. .. Manager Jack Dudding was second in the home run department with a total of 11. Carroll's Denny Rinaldi took the crown and set a new league mark by clouting 17i He was the RBI leader with 48, better than one per game. Anderson's batting crown clim- .axed a tremendous season. He had a fine average all year, but couldn't overtake the league leader, Wally 'Mohrmann, Spencer, until the final week. Mohrmann finishedvwith a .382 mark. Rinaldi and Dudding were the only men in.the race for the four- base crown. Dudding's output was four more than the next man on the list, George Dropo, Mason City, who clubbed seven. The Lions finished in second place in the league by dropping a play-off game to Carroll, then : w,ese defeated in; the Jfirst game of the post-season play-off.
