Dick Thoreson, appearing before the Council as a member of the Rotary Club, asked if the Council had any objection for the organization's looking into the possibility of a tree project such as the ones at Mason. City, Minneapolis and ShakopVe, Minn. Vhoresoh said the Rofary club, would probably decide whether or hot to pursue the project today (Monday) during its weekly meeting. If the club grants approval, he said, the Chamber of Commerce, Salesmen's Bureau and Retail Bureau would also be asked their opinion on such a project. The Rotary proposal at this early stage is for three trees per block, located in basepots 33 inches high and about 31/2 feet wide. Benches for shoppers could possible be constructed around the basepots, Thoreson said. Roots would be confined to the basepots, with anticipated tree life ranging from 10 to 15 years. It has not been decided what kind or what size of tree would be used. However, Thoreson said they would be good- sized trees.

Dick Camp, the North varsity football coach who moved up from sophomore basketball to the Varsity level after Lyle's death, said his team was emotionally unprepared. lor-tbe...Lincoin:.game, Now, however, the death of. the coach may be providing incentive for his boys to win for him. "This is one of the best North teams in history," Camp said Friday. "We went to the state tourney and finished fourth in 1967, so I can't say yet whether this is the best." The North squad has speed and quickness to go with its height. As if this wasn't enough to psyche out an opponent, the Polar Bears wear pink sweat bands. "It's kind of a North fad," Camp explained. "Our sophomores wear them too." He said none of the North opponents wore them this year. - ALGONA LIKE KNOXVILLE North also lost to Des Moines Roosevelt. Camp said Roosevelt was a bigger team and one of four strong Des Moines area teams - North, Roosevelt, Lincoln and Hoover. He said he hadn't received a scouting report on Algona yet, but that from what he had heard, Algona was like the Knoxville team the Polar Bears beat by 12 or 14 points. "Algona's a young team, aren't they?" he asked. "We were surprised they beat Storm Lake." •• K --^^^^^M^M^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^j^^i^ Three TV Stations To Carry Game !

The coverage of all tournament games will be available to interested stations but only the Algona-North game will be carried in the first round Wednesday and Thursday eliminations. ' Most area stations will carry all four Friday and Saturday. ,, —UNDERDOG ROLE-Howie Stephenson, Algona coach: "When you're tabbed as the underdog, you've got to be up. We already beat No. 1 in one poll and we might as well play the other No. 1 in the first round! There are a lot of teams there that I'd rather play in the first round, but you've got to play them all. "We've got to get them on the boards and stop their fast break to win," Stephenson continued. "They have a tough defense and press. We really haven't been bothered by the press this season and we were especially pleased at the way we handled the Storm Lake press. The way other coaches talked, we weren't even supposed to get the ball up the court!" ' —YOU CAN BEAT NORTH— • Bob Brown, sports editor of the Fort Dodge Messenger- "You can beat North .Des Moines. They have two quick guards and two big boys, but they aren't that good a ball club. They beat Ames but only after the starting Ames unit fouled out. They'll press like hell, but they'll foul a lot. The way you guys sink free throws, it will be trouble for North." George Duvall, Ames high school basketball coach: "North is a good team, very quick and fast. They can shoot too. We lost to them in overtime with the help of the officials--all five of our starters fouled out. But don't get me wrong, I've seen them several i times since. They are a good team. They run like hell and play a man-to-man defense. I'm sure you've got a good chance against them, at least Howie thinks so." -B»««M. -THREE STATE TEAMS-Stephenson said this year's team gets its wins more like his second state tournament team did than his first, The 1964 Bulldogs placed third, beating Fort Dodge and Dubuque Wahlert, but login* to cedar Rapids Jefferson.
