The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, Aug. 2,1938 Findley Named High School Coach, Ridenour Assistant Leonard Wilson, New Man To Join Coaching Staff This Fall Lawrence Findley. former head basketbnll and assistant football coach, last week was named h«id football coach for the coming year to succeed Paul Bergfir, who resigned to accept another position. Leonard Wilson, an TowA State College graduate, will join the Algona staff as an assistant concn" fb" > Un the vacancy made upon the advancement of Findley and C. E. Ridenour, assistant tfpAflh. * Under the new athletic set up Coach Findley well take charge of football with C. E. Ridenour and Wilson as his -M»i»tants. Findley will agate ba bniketbaU ,co4ch with Mr. RMerloW' lla assistant and perhaps Mr. WHSOn. " Arrangements have not yet been completed for wrestling. Mr. Ridenour has been wrestling coach for the past two years, but with Wilson a capable wrestling coach the former may devote full time to basketball. U. a C. Graduate Algona's new football coach, is a graduate of the University of Southern California, receiving his B. A. there three years ago. His home, however, is Ottumwa, Iowa, where he went to high school. He has a wide background in varied sports Including football, basketball and baseball, while at Southern California, and also tennis while In high school. Clyde E. Ridenour for the past two years has been assistant football coach and wrestling coach. He Is a graduate of Iowa State at Ames where he participated In football, basketball and track. Leonard Wilson, new assistant coach, comes here from Edgewood. He is also an Iowa State graduate and while at Ames competed In all sports, earning ihree major letters in wrestling. Findley has for the past years been track coach in addition to coaching basketball but with the possibility of the addition of golf to the high school sports list there is also a possibility that there may be changes in the coaching set up for spring sports. Broader Physical Education Under the new alignment of the coaches a greatly broadened system of physical education will be introduced at Algona high school accord- Ing to Superintendent Otto B. Lalng. All three of the men now listed on the athletics staff have considerable experience in many varied sports so that they will be able to assist In other athletics besides the orcn in which they have their rrmior interest. Conch Findley will nen'in te ich the boys' physical education classes and Miss Gladys Pre^rott girls' physical education. Girls' sports and the so-called minor sports will be given a great deal more crr.ihasis this year especolally If plans ran be carried out to install hot showers in the Bryant school huildinu. If that can he done It will he possible to have wrestlinp and manv nhvs- Ical education classes and intramural sports in the Bryant gymnasium. With Increased facilities and more versatile roaches the Algona high school will come closer to the modern ideal of sport for every boy. This aim of providing athletics for every boy will not conflict with the building of strong teams in major sports, however, according to Superintendent Laing. Rather it Is believed that through getting more bovs interested in athletics there will be many prospective stars discovered for the varsity football, basketball and track squads. Local K. C.

Work on tearing down this huge hangar at Scott Field will begin shortly. Said to be the second largest in America, it has never housed a Zrppt!in, although built for their accommodation. The destruction of the hangar is a part of the plans of the War Department in changing Scott Field to a strictly heavier-than-alr post This field will now become General Headquarters of the air service in America, a move that has been made in anticipation of future war. By placing the main field in the center of the United States, maximum freedom from foreign attack is attained together with ease in mobilizing planes to either coast. 36 ENTERED IN ALGONA TENNIS MEET THIS WEEK Play to Start Wednesday in Senior, Boys and Girls' Classes Special Edition Coming, Aug. 16 The March of Progress edition of The Alfcona Upper De« Moines will appear Auirmt IPth commemorating the Iowa centennial year.

Menke completed the scoring for Bancroft, making i totol of five runs, three unearned.. Hatten, Lion pitcher, had compete control of the situation while on the hill, striking out six Whittemore hitters. AMeraott Fans B Tttonka and Lett's Creek, following the first two teams, put on thr66 scoreless innings. Letts Creek was the only team to hold Its northern opponent scoreless although it in turn could not score. The two teams played some of the best ball of the night and Alderson, Letts Creek hurler, provided the pitching masterpiece of the evening by striking out six consecutive Titonka batsmen. Wlttkopf, Algona man, play- for Letts Creek, made two of the nicest defensive plays of the evening throwing out hitters going down to first on almost sure hits. Rlngsted's rout of Burt put the game on Ice for the Northerners. The present league leaders were aiming to outscore Bancroft and did so by driving in ten runs in three innings. The Ringsted hitters batted around in the second ot their three Innings, scoring seven runs. Wesley Scores Swea City and Wesley put on the filnale with the green uniformed Swea Peas outscorlng Wesley 3 to 2. The latter earned the distinction of being the only southern team to score and'averted a shut-out by the northerners.

To translate In brief—the Brownies drubbed the Mexican Revolutionists • 13 to 6 in a night ball game at the Brownie Park. This was the same team which last year defeated the Brownies 4 to 3 in 11 innings In the feature game of Watermelon Day. THIa season the invaders claimed" a record of 56 wins ont of 0 games prior to their game with the local colored club. However the reinforced Brownie) hitting was altogether too much for the blue uniformed ball players. Mathies on the mound for the local club kept the Mexicans in check fairly well but it wai chiefly the hitting of Lowe, Warreir, the two Whites, et al, that turned the game into a decisive win. The addition of Young and Richard White, cousin of Danny White, the right field slugger, give the Brownies a line-up that Has been without weak spots from the top of the batting order down through the Score by innings: Algona 160 221 100—13 19 0 Mexicans 031 010 000— 6" 10'3 For Your Car DON'T FORGET.
