By halftime, Webster City had a 3725 cushion. Nelson added another six points to his total during this stanza. Kolbeck racked up his ninth field goal and fifth foul early in the third round, and Algona gained momentum. The locals cut the margin to 39-32, then saw the Lynx rebound and go in front by 54-42 at the three-quarter mark. Big Doug Meyer, held without a fielder in the first half, flipped in four dandies and Nelson had another six-point total during third period action. Blue, Roberis Roll Meyer continued to roll in the final period, but the shooting ot Ron Blue, and Terry Roberts ol the Lynx proved too much, and the visitors ran their lead to 20 points before the end of the contest. Despite the 20 point victory, Webster City actually made more mechanical errors than the locals. Algona was deficient in rebound- ng during the first half as Ro- jerts, 6'8" center, controlled both Boards. Meyer staged a fine personal comeback in the final half as he tossed in 15 of his 18 points md came through with many resounds, and played the whole contest although he had four ouls in the first 16 minutes. Nelon also counted 18 points ana Ron Zittritsch added 10 to the Algona total. Roberts got 19, Kolbeck 18 and Blue 14 for Webster City. Algona hit only 17 of 36 free hrows during the game, far below par, and was tight before the halftime intermission shots from the field. its feet.

Half of this will remain with local chapters of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis for financing essential care for the thousands of polio patients who need such help. The other half is needed to meet the rigid minimum required for epidemic aid, research, and for training polio scientists and professional workers. Many Activities _ In this community a wide variety of activities is in full swing to raise the needed funds. Particularly gratifying, campaign leaders say, is the interest shown this year by the teen-agers, who have arranged their own fund raising events.
