GREEN BULLDOGS EYE OPENER WEEK AWAY 3 Other New Coaches Make Debut In Loop Coach Jason Loving of Algona high school isn't the happiest mentor in the North Central Conference, even though his squad of 38 has shown some improvement since the opening practice Aug. 24; "We've got a green ball club,' said Jase, who continued, "not green because we have a large group of freshmen, but rather because we have so many seniors that are inexperienced. Our biggest problem to date is the fact that most of (ho 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, play- ess and fans all keeping an eye on this schedule of games: Sept. 9—Emmotsburg, here Sept. lt>—Webster Cuy. here Sept. 23—Eagle Grove, there Sept. 30—Hampton, there Or!. 7—Clear Lake, here Oct. 14—Clarion, here Oct. 2H--Iowa Falls, there Nov. 2 —Humboldt. there S ) f;ir. squad moral has been good, and the new coach is certain the local outfit will play interesting ball — but he isn't predicting any scores. The prime ( ffurt right now is centered on •mprovemcnt of the speed o_f - _ajl the player, 1 - Right now it :-n! The players seem to be picking up Jase's tingle-win;; attack all right, and several hav:- shown quite ;i bit of improvement. Signal-callers Ted FinU'y and Harvey Peglow. tackles Dave Seller and Fred Strahorn and guard Terry Cook came in fur special mention during the. first week. Head Coach Loving and his assistants. Bob King and Champ Martin, are making every c'foii to get more freshmen out and keep them on the squad. They look real good, according to th" coaches, and will not to be used as a hamburger squad during practice sessions. • Ball-carrying duties so far have bra n handled by Doug Meyer. Finlcy, Jim Cowan and D;«ve Richardson, taut nothing is dvftnjtcjy .sot as far a«;«i stafiUrvi 'iiv-up for the opener is concerned. Conditioning will continue at ;; rapid j^uce. Due to a definite lack of 'depth, injuries could mangle the plans of the loca so every man must be in top .-"n.<pe by tl:e time the opening whistle g''ts the season underway Sept. !.i ;.t the fairgrounds. ^C^ KOSSUTH COUNTY ^ .SPORTS.

HOW OTHER LOOP SQUADS APPEAR The North Central Conference- outlouk ;s clomU••:!. but with two or three possible exceptions, most uf the league teams should be improved over last season. Last year's undefeated champs, the Kagle drove Eagles, are an unknown quantity. They have u new coach, Dick Palm, who was .-elected tn replace Al DiMarco DiMarco moved to Dowling in Des Moines, taking with him a fine record. Palm cannot im- piove very much on last year's ieconl. anil he must take up the slack left by graduation. The Eagles do have some tried men to build around, so could tx v toiish again. Webster City lias four regulars, two backs ami two linemen back, and Coach Hurley Rollmger ha; a large group of promising newcomers on hand, so could come up with another conference <-h.-impion. The team will bt? b:gner than a year ago and will have lot:- more depth. Iowa Falls has a new coach. He is Dun Prior, and he took the reigns from Joe McNeill of Al- gnim, whu had a very 1'me record in Cadetland Tjefore leaving. They had a 4-3 conference record last year, lost some regulars, so new squad members could be the answer. Clear Lake could bo a potent contender. Coach Dyle Martin has several lettermen back, plus a nice big group of newcomers. The Lion* had a 4-3-1" season mark a year ago, including u 13-0 upset of Webster City. They could be the team to watch. Clarion's neV coach, Dick Garth, who succeeds Tom Hand, will have a young squad. Many of them got valuable experience a year ago. and might he ready to run wild now. The replacement problem isn't too severe, as many of the regulars were sopho mures last season. Coach Roger Freet had a 2-4-1 conference record a year ago arid has many of his 1954 man back for another try. The Bulldog* are almost certain to improve on that record and will probably pull u couple of upsets during the fall. Humboldt Coach Al Hadar has 15 lettermen back, and despite the fact the Wildcats finished jn the loop basement last yean with a 1-6 mark, they look like a vastly improved group. After two consecutive poor seasons, conference iocs can look for something surprising out of the Wildcats. Hadar doesn't like to lose, so if h'.> can assemble the proper individuals into his system, the rest of the league better look out.
