BEATS WESLEY IN FIRST TUT Algona Plays Class "B' Champs Again, Friday, At Wesley St Cecelia's Academy team defeated Wesley high school's cage quint, 26 to 21, in a well-played game on the local Algona court, last Thursday night. Wesley won the class "B" title of the county in the recent public school tourney, and the Academy team was quite elated to manage to take a victory from the good Wesley aggregation. Nelson of Algona opened the scoring with two field goals, in less than a minute and a half of play, and the locals managed to hold that early lead, slim though It was, all the way through the contest. Nelson was an outstanding player on the court, and his mates all played good, steady basketball to take the victory from a fighting Wesley aggregation, who have to practice and play at home in an old hall. This coming Friday, the Academy team plays Wesley again, at Wes-1 ley.

The visitors won, 38 to 25, and were never In danger of losing the lead. Algona failed to score a field goal in the first quarter, and had only two at the half, when they trailed, 24 to 10. A wealth of personal fouls enlivened the game, especially at the closing moments, when more players were in horizontal than vertical positions. However, Algona had the best cheer leaders.

Humboldt Had n trio of lads well over six feet, and they almost Invariably broke up every Algona scoring threat by taking the first •ebound in each case, and turning t over to their speedy forwards. Algona's slow-breaking game, as a result, did not get far.
