WHAT IS MEAT-TYPE HOG? A Meat - Type Hog Is The Answer of Pork Raisers To A Public Demand For a Leaner Strip of Bacon, Leaner Pork Chops And Roasts, Leaner Hams . . . Producers of Pork Today Are Anxious To Please You - The General Public. Meat - Type Hogs Give You More For Your Money. OCTOBER IS DESIGNATED AS EAT MORE PORK MONTH PALATABLE, NUTRITIOUS, AND THE BEST FAMILY BUDGET BUY MEMO TO PORK RAISERS - (From Iowa Swine Producer's Ass'n) If will be more Important to select a MEAT BOAR this fall to sire your next year's pig crop than at any time in the history of the hog usiness. Good, meaty gilts will give the well- muscled boar a better chance to win customers for hams, chops and other products from the hog. Many have thought length the only requirement for a meat type hog. To be a meat hog, it must have muscle, plenty of it, from one end to the other. Hornless, meatless, poor- doing hogs are not the answer. All breeds, new and old, have some of the right kind, plus many, we do not want. Testing and selection of the better muscled hogs is the answer - not reaching in a bag to pull out a new breed. Too many have tried to produce meat hogs by breed - not by selection. Some of the meatiest, best-going hogs found in the meat type certification program have been found in some of our older breed s. It takes a good hog to meet these requirements, not a poor doer. Some believe support prices our only solution in the swine business. Any support under hogs that ignore quality will only provoke the swine producer's problems. We are still paying for lack of regulations on quality during OPA «nd OPS. The poorest brought the same price as the best. The way to win customers for ham, chops and bacon is with better muscled hogs, well- processed and attractively merchandised. Pro ducers must do their part — ifs later than you think. Western Buyers Will Poy Premium Prices For MEAT-TYPE Hogs . . .

The tie halted a three- game losing skein and also stopped a three-game streak of scoring six points a contest. Coach Jason Loving's thin corps of men will appear on the home field at the fairgrounds the next two Fridays.. They will host Clear Lake tomorrow (Friday) night and a win would move the Bulldogs well out of the conference basement. Frank Kern and Jim Cowan, back? listed on the injury list for more than a week, weren't in unifoim for the Hampton fray, and their absence was noted throughout the night. Algona received the opening kickoff. and got the first break of the game shortly after punting from its own 35 yard line. Hampton moved for 17 yards in three tries to its own '48, but Larry Towne fumbled on the next play and Ted Finley smothered the ball for Algona on the midfield str.ipe. Hampton Scores First Nothing came of the chance, and Doug Meyer punted out of bounds on the Hampton 19. A 15-yard penalty on the Bulldogs and three stabs at the line moved the ball to the Hampton 43, but once again Lady Luck attempted to aid the Algona cause as Ed Lenius fumbled and Dave Seller recovered for the locals on the Hampton 43. After Bill Moxley lost two and *M%yer got them back... Mover tossed a strike to Rod Kickbiish for a first, down on the Hamp- j ton 32. Meyer picked up three j on his next tiy, but lost nine at- j tempting to pass and flipped one j incomplete to force a punt. Thi> ' time Doug kicked it out on the I 15. | Hampton quick-kicked on 2nd | down and Algona took over on its own 47. Meyer gained six as the first period ended 0-0. Moxley gained two and Meyer seven for a first down on Hampton's 38 and three more carries Oy Meyer and a six-yarder by Finley gave the locals a first and ten on the Hampton 27, but the drive bogged down as Moxley ost four and two passes fell in- romplete. Meyer punted out of bounds on the Hampton live. GRID GUESSERS CONTEST By Ol' Man Mose Three Algonans walked off with the SIS in the third weekly contest — but they had to pick 18 of 20 games to do it. The upset of Ohio State, 6-0, by Stanford and the L.S.U.-Rice tie, 20-20 were the only games missed by Helen Geilenfeld, Kenny Bunkofske and Father L. F. Rosmann. Mrs Geilenfeld and Bunkofske also guessed the same high score, 60, so each receives S6.50 as a share of first and second money. Father Rosmann clinched the S2 third prize award with a point guess of 67. High total for the week was a result of U.C.L.A.'s 55-0 clubbing of Washington Stale. Virginia Klein of Sexton; Joan Bisenius, Whitlemore; and Mrs D. P. Smith, Faye Hulchinson, Carroll Christensen, Gary Webb, L. G. Lenz, Cecil Schilmoeller, Mrs Lowell Samp, Lewis Gilbride, Mrs Charles Hoffmann and Ralph Moe, all of Algona, made up a group of a dozen entrants just one game off the pace with 17 correct. A total of 26 persons got 16 games right. They were Jim McDonnell, Mrs Clem Mergen and Clem Mergen, Whittemore; Arnold Hansen and Marv Bellinger, Fenton; Glen Welp, Titonka; Hubert O'Brien, Bode; Harold Schmalen, C. B. Robinson, Corwjth; W. E. McGrew, Guttenberg; and Mrs James Esser, Mrs Lyle Black, E. R. Mawdsley, Joe Bradley, Jr., Robert Mitfag, Jeanne Frideres, Mrs Les Kenyon, Dave Kohl, W. A. Foster, Bob Slobe, Richard Slobe, Arvid Dennis, Betty Dennis, Patti Hedlund, Madonna Erpelding and W. W. Gillespie, all of Algona. Thirty persons, including Keilh Bellinger, Marv Bollinger and Larry Sorensen, Fenfon; John French, John Leininger-and Gerald Schuller, Whiltemore; Virginia Klein (2), Sexton; Kathleen Detrick, Burl: Charlotte Wichtendahl Lone Rock; Gary Bernau, West Bend; William Hanig, Corwith; James O'Hara, Castana; Mel Miner, Luverne, Minn.; and Walt Hagen, Dean Willretl, Loren Hahle, Russ Kelley, Don Johnson, Harry Spongberg, Eugene Durant (first place winner last week), Monte Pearson, Barbara Bartletl, J. F. Moe, Mrs Perry Lowman, Francis Bunting, Hal Long, Jim Everds, Mrs Lewis Gilbride and Lewis Gilbride (2), all of Algona, got 15 games right. Going on down through the stack of entries, 47 got 14 correct, 39 got 13, 26 got 12 and four persons share the mourner's bench with scores of 11 out of 20. They are Howard Thompson, Bancroft; Eulan Schuller, Whittemore; and Orville Kinden and Mrs Imelda Engesser, Algona. Games that caused the most trouble included Wisconsin- lowa (most entrants were too patriotic). Northwestern- Tulane, Iowa Teachers-Drake, the L.S.U.-Rice tie and Stanford's decision over Ohio State. Paul Walson, Algona, was the only person to pick Stanford over the Buckeyes. Just as was the case last week, several entries with late postmarks were received. It is important that entries reach our office before noon Saturday or bear a postmark previous to thai hour. Well, sharpen your wits and pencils and gel to work on the 20 games to be found on another page of today's UDM and who knows, you might be one of the winners announced by the Ol' Man next Thursday. Following an exchange of punts, Hampton was in possession of the pigskin on its own 25. Nobody expected what was com- . ing. Thomas moved for six yds., j then Wise carried for six and a j first down on the 37.

He added the extra point on a plunge to make it 7-0. The teams closed out the first hiilf at midfitld and Hampton retained its seven point bulge. Hampton rolled downfield twice in the third period, the first time for 45 yards to the Algona 1!0 where Joe Skilling covered a fumble for Algona, and the next time to the Algona 42. This drive was stopped when Towne slus.ued Moxley and Hampton was set back 15 yards. Algona Blocks Punt When the fourth period got uncle; way, Hampton had the ball on its own 38. It was fourth and 117 at the time and the entire left side if Algona's line slammed through, blocked the punt and .named possession on the Hampton -u. although the officials had trouble deciding who owned the pigskin. Meyer was stopped for no gain and threw three incomplete passes and Hampton took over on the 26. A one-yard gain and five yard penalty on Algona gave the home team a second and four on its own 32. Bob Jensen -crashed in and tossed Thomas for a six-yard loss and Fred Sti ahorn pinned Towne for an eleven yard loss back on the 15, so Hampton punted. The boot went to the 50 and Finley returned 13 to the Hampton 37. Six straight carries by Meyer who went three, two, six, eight, 16 and finally two for the TD got the locals back within striking di.-tance. Doug's place-kick went low and straight to tie the count at 7-7, with only (3.20 remaining to play. It looked like plenty of time for Hampton however, as they started from their own 33 and moved rapidly downfield. Lenius and I Towne took turns as the home j club went 58 yards to Algona's ' nine but fell two yards short of a first down and Algona took over. Finley gained five yards as the game ended. Statistics Favor Hampton Hampton outgained Algona, 239-139. during the game, getting all of its yardage on the ground. Algona ran for 112 and passed for 27 as Meyer accounted for l-ici yards. A definite lack of blocking was spotted throughout the contest, and most of the AJ- gona gains came as 3 result of hard running. For Hampton, Towne led the way with 134 yards in 20 tries, an average of almost seven yards each attempt. i Defensively, Finjey, Skilling, Tyke Wins In Homecoming Tilt, 14 To 7 Titonka's Indians rolled up n wide statistical edge in downing a determined Mallard team. 14-7, at Titonka Friday night. I! was Titonka's Homecoming, and the first Homecoming win in four years for the home team. The Indians will shoot for their fourth win of the year against one loss when they travel to West Bend tomorrow (Friday) night for an important Cornbell Conference clash. Titonka has a 1-1 league mark. Titonka kicked off to Mallard and got a real scare. The Ducks roared from their own 30 to Titonka's three yard line in 1G plays, but bogged down short of the end zone and the Indians took over. Sid Buffington lightened Titonka hearts on the first play when he zipped for 67 yards to the Mallard 30. Gary Smidt and Buffington carried to the Mallard ten as the first period ended. Buffington scored from the ten on the first play of the second period and Dennis Kromingy split the uprights with a place- kick to make it 7-0. The visitors weren't to be denied, however. The Ducks started from their 20, carried to the 38 in two plays and Willis Fain faded back and hit Don Oleson with a perfect pitch for 70 yards and the TD. A line plunge tied the count at 7-7. The Indians marched right back to take the lead for good. Starting from their own 30. Gary Smidt and Carol Asche took turns carrying the mail to the Mallard six. Asche went the final six yards for the touchdown and Krorninga converted again to make it 14-7. Titonka completed three straight passes just before the half and moved to the Mallard five yard line but failed to cash in. Mallard controlled the third stanza, and at one time went to the Indian 15, but a fumble cut the rally down. The final quarter was all Titonka, as Mallard had a chance to run only two plays during the 12 minutes. Titonka threatened twice, but the Ducks held. Smidt gained 129 yards in 21 trips and Buffington 123 yards in 15 tries to top the Titonka attack.
