AIN STEM BY JULIAN CHRISCHILLES "Twice Honored by State Awards" •"•——•——••—«•M__I THE SURF BALLROOM at Clear Lake is making an apparent comeback under the direction of oldtime bandleader '.'Tiny" Hill .... plagued with financial troubles since the rock craze began 10 years or so ago, the Surf was closed several times between new owners. Hill is seemingly putting new life in the old haunt for many In the 40 and 50-year class, who remember the old Surf which was right on the lake until it burned down in the late 40*5 and was then rebuilt at its present location. It nourished too for some time. Now, Hill reports a return to the bands of the '40s and '50s and has booked Clyde McCoy for April 21, Wayne King for April 28, Jack Morgan with his father's orchestra of music in the Morgan Manner for June 1 and Dick Jurgens later on. Sounds like a laudable venture - and there are some of us that hope Woody Herman. Stan Kenton, Buddy Rich and others will follow! * * * EX-ALGONA COACH Jim Hershberger, who took over the head coaching duties in football at Buena Vista College at Storm Lake last fall, is going right to work to build a winner there next September. He announced the addition of five transfer griddersto his squad the other day and one of the five was Tim Black of Algona, a linebacker and kicker at a Cedarville, Ohio college. Tim graduated from Algona high school two years ago and was an outstanding lineman for the Bulldogs. Other transfers were from Montana State. University of Northern Iowa, South Dakota and Centerville JC. Know- Ing Jim, Buena Vista can expect a winner shortly! * * * WHEN THE ALGONA high school basketball team and coaches returned from Des Moines, In acaravanof some 100 cars, the team went downtown before going to the pep rally and Coach Howie Stephenson was pleased to note as he looked out the car window that a number of small boys were shooting baskets at the old athletic field court as they passed by. In fact, he made mention of the fact when he gave a few remarks at the rally and introduced each of his players and managers. One of the more observant players, Dan Smith, recognized at least one of the players and said so in his remarks to the crowd: "I don't want Coach Stephenson to get too excited about those future young basketball players he saw today." Smith observed. "They'll be playing for Garriganl" * * * THE FINAL BASKETBALL polls took quite a beating as the state tournament ended. Only Montezuma, top-ranked most of the season in Class A, upheld its regular season rating winning the Class A title. It's opponent, Alta, was not mentioned in the top 20 and runnerup Grundy Center was soundly trounced by No. 9 Treynor in the second round. In Class AA, champion Davenport West was likewise not among the top 20 ranked at the end of the season and Ottumwa, ranked No. 14, was the other finalist. UP AT SWEA CITY, Roger Linde never misses a chance to honor the deserving youth of the area, whether it be farm or athletic ... the other night he staged an appreciation dinner for the fine Trojan basketball team which compiled a 23-2 record and missed the state tournament by losing to Alta, eventual runnerup in the sub-state finals. Held at Fairmont, the event attracted about 50 team-connected people including cheerleaders, score-keepers, coaches and wives and of course, the members of the fine Swea City basketball team. Keep it up, Rog! * * * THE BODE FIRE department pitched right in when needed in the aftermath of the storm a week ago Thursday and fire chief, Arlis Kinseth, reports his department hauled over 15,000 gallons of water to farmers in that area for their livestock. The department tanker traveled over 400 miles delivering water to the tanks but there was still another problem - storage. Most farms were able to take only 100 gallons at a time and in some farm yards, tractors were needed to pull the tanker through the soft ground. Sixty-one man-hours were. used to provide the water since the power outage stopped use of tank heaters used to keep the water from freezing. * * * IF YOU WONDERED why so many telephone lines were down in the county during the most recent ice and snow storm, Don Bormann down at the LuVerne elevator came up with some interesting figures ... a pice of ice taken from one of the downed lines near there measured 4 1/2 inches in diameter and the foot-long chunk weighed three pounds .... projecting this weight over a full mile, the total ice weight on the telephone lines would figure at about eight tons! ALTHOUGH ALGONA had blocks of tickets from 1,000 to 1,200 for its first two games in the state basketball tournament in Des Moines recently, fans who stayed home because they couldn't get tickets here shouldn't have ... in every session but Saturday night's finals, as many as 6,000 or 7,000 seats were available and these were chair seats, not the bleacher-type planks that go in the block sales. Most observers felt the tournament field as a whole was slightly below average, and the crowds were far from capacity until the finals. Prep cage experts predict that competition will be tougher in the next couple of years with many more individual stars. THOSE WHO are anticipating receiving Educational Television in this area will not have long to wait. . . KDIN (educational network) of Des Moines will have its antenna on the new 2,000- foot tower which will carry the signals of WHO of Des Moines, and WOI of Ames. Construction is expected to begin about May 1 with a hopeful Completion around Oct. 1. A spokesman for KDIN, John A. Montgomery, executive director of the Iowa Educational Broadcasting Network, said that the signal will reach the Humboldt area when the new tower is completed. Algona's Cable TV system should bring in an excellent signal to local viewers. Incidentally, there are now 27 Iowa cities and towns with Cable TV (including Algona, Bode, LuVerne, West Bend and Fenton) and Fort Dodge will vote on a cable franchise Tuesday. HOW? . . .
