LAKOTA, BURT TEAMS WIN TOURNEYS Girls County Title Won In Last 2 Seconds Lakota's girls and Burl's boys are the new basketball champions of Kossuth County. Lakota repeated as litleholder with a thrilling 44-42 win over Whittemorc Friday night and Burt downed Titonka, 67-60, in the boys finale Saturday night. Finals of both tourneys were held at Titonka, following earlier action at Swea City and Whittemore. Lakota's win w a s strictly Frank Merriwell stuff. The winners trailed most of the way until the final minutes of action, when, with the scort; tied at 42-42, Thompson of Lakota stepped to the free throw line with two seconds showing on the scoreboai'd clock. Thompson unerringly tossed both free tosses home, and Lakota was the 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. The Whittemore sextet was in front, 33-32, at the three-quarter mark. Thompson topped both teams in scoring with 25 points. Barrett tossed in ten for Lakota, while Vaudt got 23 and D. Wood 13 for Whittemore. Burt built an early lead, saw most of it melt, then came back to take the boys finale Saturday. The winners were on top at the end of the first period, 16-13, as both teams hit well. Burt then raced away during the next eight minutes to build its margin to 3323 at halftime. Titonka came back and with Sathoff hitting a torrid pace, cut the leaders margin to 49-45 at the three-quarter mark. Burt recouped its scoring forces and with four men pecking away built the final margin. Jerry Garman topped the winners with 21 points, while Smidt got 15, and Manus and Giddings 14 each. Sathoff's 32 points were for a losing cause, although it was the high total of the entire tourney. Doughan got ten points for Titonka. Consolation titles were won bv the Wesley girls and Lone Rock boys. Grant led Wesley, 14-12, at the end of the first period of their contest, but the winners came back to take a 30-23 halftime lead that held up through the final 16 minutes. Bleich got 26 points, Downs 22 and Root 11 for Wesley, while Farrow got 34 and Skaar ten for Grant. Lone Rock and Lakota battled right to the wire in the boys game. It was 8-8 at the quarter. Lone Rock led, 26-25, at the half and 40-39 at the three-quarter mark, before pulling away late in the game. John Cotton tallied 26 points for Lone Rock, while Blome topped Lakota with 21.

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. The winners committed 32 fouls during the fray, but had the necessary bench .strength to keep up a hot scoring pace throughout.

Crucial Week For Bulldogs After Victory At Clarion Algona Moves Back To Third In Loop Rating Algona's Bulldogs got back on the right track and climbed one 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 fans plenty to look at this week, with Clear Lake's much improved Lions moving in for a game tonight (Tuesday) and Eagle Grove, right on the heels of 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.'.on showing the way, moved into a 6-0 lead in the first five minutes of the fray and the 1 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 t h r e e points of their margin during the final quarter of action. The play of Meyer WHS the deciding factor in this one. He turned in his best all-around game of the year, notched 20 points, controlled the rebounds at both ends of the court and tore around like a 150 pounder. His scoring total was held down as he didn't have a hot night shooting. Nelson's 19 points, including 14 in the first half, were second high for Algona. The Bulldogs hit 16 of 3G 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 VVitzel to just 13 points, as Tor- hark 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 Brnnsun and Jerry Rupp with 9 each and Tom Zitt- ritsch with eight.

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 Chrisline Summerhayes, owner of Chris' Cafe. Duhlgg 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. Nb beer is sold there and magazines and other material received al 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. The charge was filed by an unnamed party after first being discussed at a P.T.A. meeting. Change Revenue Office Dates Robert J.
