Thompson unerringly tossed both free tosses home, and Lakota was the 1 winner. The winners trailed, 10-9, at the end of the first eight minutes, saw Whittemore enlarge the bulge to 24-17 at the half, then came back to .snatch the verdict with a torrid second half onslaught that turned the trick.

Kuemper grabbed the lead early from the-.Knights and held it all the'way. It was 24-17 at the quarter and 40-32 at halftime, with the St. Cecelia's crew still in the running. A futile third period put the Knights out of the game for good. Carroll held the upper hand at the three-quarter mark, 60-41.

Livermore took consolation honors with a 58-52 victory over Renwick in the opener. After a tight first period, which ended with the score tied at 1G-16, LuVerne got underway.

Algonti Moves Back To Third In Loop Rating Algona's Bulldogs got back oh the right track and climbed ort'e rung higher on the conference ladder with an easy, 56-41, win over Clarion at Clarion Friday night. The win gave Coach Bob King's quintet an 8-5 season mark and a 5-3 conference record, good for third,place. Two fine home contests will give local fafas plenty to look at this Week, with Clear Lake's much Improved Lions moving in for a game lohight (Tuesday) and Eagle .Grove, right on the heels o'f the Bulldogs, provides the opposition Friday night. Clear Lake has come back after a sour start to move into contention in the conference with a 4-5 mark to date. In games earlier this season, Algona downed the Lions and fell to the Eagles away from home. • . The Clarion game'was almost no contest, until Algona experienced a cold third period. The Bulldogs, with Doug Meyer and Loren Nel.'.pn showing the way, moved into a 6-0 lead in the first five minutes of the fray and the outcome was never in doubt. By the end of the period, the King- sters held the upper hand, 14-7. Algona blasted the net off the hoop during the opening five minutes of the second stanza and raced away to a huge 28-11 bulge. Clarion spurted briefly to chop the count to 34-22 at the half. The teams battled to a standstill during the third round, each scoring 11 points, so with eight minutes of play remaining, Algona held the upper hand, 45-33. The Bulldogs added three points of their margin during the? final quarter of action.

Iowa State Loop Members Drop One team dropped out and two others arc on the borderline of taking the same action following the meeting of Iowa State Baseball League representatives at Fort Dodge Sunday. Storm Lake will forego parti' c-ipation in the loop during 1956, according to an announcement made during tin; day, ancl Spencer and Carroll are undecided, at present, whether to compete or not. Bancroft, Mason City and Es- thervillc voted hands-down on a proposal to change the league from its present semi-pro standing to a strictly amateur proposition. League President Bill Farner. Carroll, advanced the proposal recently. Bancroft was not represented at the meeting. the He turned in his best all-around game of the year, notched 20 points, controlled the rebounds at both emls of the court and tors around like a 150 pounder. His scoring total was held down as he didn't have a hot night shooting. Nelson's 19 points, includ : ing 14 in the first half, were second high for Algona. The Bulldogs hit 16 of 36 shots in the first half, a neat 44 percent, and finished with a respectable 37 percent average for the game despite a cold second half. The defensive play of Algona was terrific. Nelson and Ron Zittritsch held Clarion's high- scoring guards, McClelland and Witzel to just 13 points, as Terhark proved to be the only thorn in the side of Algona with 19 points. The floor play of the Bulldogs was good, although they failed to take advantage of fast- break situations during the night. Sophomore Jim Cowan, who appeared briefly in two previous games, was installed as a starter by King, and played the entire game. Agona's B-team got a 42-40 win in the curtain-raiser as Warren Branson got the winning bucket with 20 seconds of play remaining. Howie Funk was the top scorer with 14 points, followed by Branson and Jerry Rupp with 9 each and Tom Zitt- ritsch with eiyht. , Box score - varsity: Grapplers Lose To Eagles, 19-17 Algona high school's wrestling team fell to Eagle Grove, 19-17, in the local gym Friday night. The locals and visitors each won five matches, but one Eagle win was a fall and provided the edge. The Bulldogs travel to Iowa Falls Friday night for a meeting with the Cadet team. Individual winners for Algona included Morris Harbour, 103 Ib. Francis Bjustrom 127 Ib.. Harold Bjustrom 145 Ib., Darrell Davis 154 Ib. and Dave Seiler, heavyweight. Terry Cook was held to a draw in the 138 Ib. match. Algona's B-team chalked up its second straight win, 18-13, in the opener. Larry Cook got a fall, Jim Moxley, Albert Fosnaugh and Fred Strahorn registered decisions and Gary Davis and Richard Olson battled to draws during the meet. 22 Farms Get Soil Help O.K.

Charges Obscene Literature Sold A charge that obscene literature was being distributed at a West Bend cafe was being investigated last week by County Attorney John J. Duhigg of Palo Alto county, according to a story in the Emmetsburg Democrat last Thursday. The lone charge filed so far, the paper said, was against Christine Summerhayes, owner of Chris' Cafe. Duhigg explained that the complaint was made against some "literature" found by minors in the cafe although it was no different from magazines sold by some other newsstands in Palo Alto county. Chris' Cafe has.been a gathering place for teenagers, Duhigg said. No beer is sold there and magazines and other material received at the cafe for the newsstand comes from wholesale distributors, and the county attorney said he is considering filing charges against the distributors: The magazine seized at West Bend dealt with sex.
