The firs home game will be with Spence here October 7th. All home games will be ptaye< under the floodlights except prob ably the Armistice day game. Spencer, the team which opens the home season Is the only new add Itlon to the schedule. The other teams were all met last year wfRi Algona winning three games, tlelng two and losing two. Emmetsburg and Humboldt were the eleven/ which defeated the Algona eleven and Webster City and Eagle Grove held the local team to tie games. With last year's tough schedule made additionally difficult by the Inclusion of Spencer, Findley face* a difficult task In his Initial year as head coach. Algona will encounter veteran teams in virtually every game. However, six regulars will be back to provide a good nucleus for a winning machine. Tuffy Anderson, all- conference center, will again handle the center qf the line and both regular tackles will be back; new men must be found to fill In the other positions In the line. In the back field only Kenny Lynk, star quarterback, will be missing. However Lynk's losn will be a big one since he was an exceptional passer nnd n flne blocker in addition to calling signals for the team. Coach Findley Is not unduly pessimistic, predicting a fairly good season. However, several key positions will have to be filled nnd the tenm have good luck In avoiding injuries before nnythinsr more thnn that can be predicted. Findley <mld. K.
