Algona 7th In Track Meet Algona high school's track team placed seventh, one spot out of the basement, in the Comet Relays at Charles City Friday, despite several fine showings. t Two individuals, Larry Johnson in the pole vault, and Bill Moxley, shot-putter; equalled or bettered their best previous marks and failed to place. Johnson hit ten feet in his event and took sixth, while Moxley tossed the shot 43 feet, 11 inches, the best throw by a local thinclad in years, to take seventh. One reason for the showing of this pair was the fact the field events were thrown open to every team in all classes in the meet, with the result that approximately 40 men competed in each field event. The local two-mile relay team missed taking first by two feet while running the course well on a cold day. Darrell Davis, anchorman, had a 20 yard gap to take up when he got the baton. He managed to take the lead, but Decorah's anchorman managed to edge into, the tape first. The medley relay team placed fifth to account for Algona's other two points in the meet. The locals were entered in only eight events. Algona's trackmen will travel to Estherville Thursday for the annutil running of the Kstherville Relays during the afternoon and evening. Postpone High Sectional Tilts Rain and oold weather postponed practically every high school sectional baseball tournament in the state Monday, so first round games were moved ahead a day to Tuesday.
