DIAMOND'S SURPLUS STORE GRID, GUESSERS CONTEST By Ol' Man Mose Kenneth Sarchef of Butt, a regular entrant in put weekly contest, closed oui Ihe season by taking ihe $10 firsl prize award in our final contest. Ken goi 16 of the 20 games right, as did five other contestants, and his point guess of 55 was closest to the 41 total rung up as Oklahoma crushed Nebraska. (Note—Ihef'e was an entry that topped all others, but ii was turned" in by an ineligible participant, Tom Waller, son of our editor. Tom got 16 games correct, and had a poinl guess of 49 which would have taken top money.) Carl Pearson and J. F. Moe, both of Algona, won second and third place. Each had 16 right, and Pearson's point guess, 57, was worth S3, while Moe guessed 59 and won the $2 third prize. Three other Algonans, Nancy Geilenfeld, prville Kinden and Karen Haase, also goi 16 right, but were slightly off on total points. Fourteen persons, including Mrs Robert Anderson and Keith Bollinger, Fenton; Mrs Arthur Klein, Sexton; Mrs Ralph Dimler, LuVerne; Dick McMahon, Pocahontas; and Al Grill, Mrs Leonard Goecke, Frank Rosmann, Dave Kohl, Mrs Chel Webb, Louie Gilbride, W. W. Gillespie, Jerry Rupp and Walt Hagen, all of Algona, got 15 games right. A total of 27 persons got 14 right. They were Jim McDonnell, Whillemore; Larry Sorensen, Fenton; Lamont Jansen, Bancroft; Dorothy Rieken, Burt; and Jerry Rupp (2), Gail Kirkland, Al Granzow, -Mrs Chester Willey, Lillian Ringsdorf, Mrs Jim Esser, Roland Bode, Merrill Walker, Mrs Clara Walker, Tom Kenefick, Dick Pratt, Don Johnson, Bob Slobe, W. A. Foster, Barbara Bartletl, Helen Gerber, Mrs W. W. Gillespie, Howie Funk, Mrs Lowell Samp, Nicki Clark, Mrs Lyle Black and Jim McMahon, all of Algona. Going on down through the slack, 63 got 13 right, 51 got 12, 17 got 11 and Marie Gearen and Mrs Verle Elmore, both of Algona, share the final crying towel with ten of 20 right. The ten-week season of contests has proven very interesting, as usual. A break-down of the winnings shows the men took ihe lion's share of ihe money. They grabbed a total of $74.50, almost half the money awarded. The boys were next in line wiih $44.50, the women third with $21.50 and ihe girls, who usually fare better, won only S9.50 during ihe season. The repeat business was big, as several coniestanis stayed hoi on the trail of prize money almost every week. Marlyn Bausman, Lone Rock, got the top award earlier in ihe season iwo weeks straighf, and Ken Bunkofske, Algona, landed in Jhe top three spots three times in ten weeks. The contests for 1955 are over, but be sure and look for us late in September, 1956, because we'll be back with ton more touqh 20-game slates with a load of money to distribute to the winners each week. . .
