HISTORICAL DEFT. •» i ^vrvnr ALGONA OUTPLAYS WEBSTER CITY, BUTLOSES,20-7 Hampton Next J?oe Here on Friday, Wtk Bull- Jlbtnts Established 1865 ALGONA, IOWA, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18,1938 Ten Pages VOL. 35.—NO. 42 dogs favored to Win First Conference Tilt AlgonaiA luckless Bulldog eleven outgalned Webster City, two to one, Friday night, but lost nevertheless by a 20 to 7 score 6ft the letter's field. Webster City got the breaks and capitalized on every one of them while Algona was rolling up yardage and first downs but getting nowhere in'the scoring column. A typical example Of Algona luck was the situation as the first half ended with Algona In possession of the ball on the Webster City four yard line, first down and needing about one play to score. Gain, Twice Yardage The Bulldogs gained 288 yards from . scrimmage and piled up 16 first downs just about twice the Lynx total of 133 yards from scrimmage and eight first downs. In the first half the local team ran up 11 first downs to three tot Webster City and still trailed In the scoring, 6 to 0. Perhaps the state of affairs at half Urn* made the J3ulldo*Mowh-heart- ed for although they scored in the second halt-Webster City ran over two more touchdowns to bring Its total to 20 points for the evening's work. For the Bulldog! the work-of their three backfleld aces Long, Lee and Michel, was outstanding. Long and JLs« did most Of the heavy duty wrn-k with Michel contributing a nice 80 yard gallop along with other shorter gains, Long scored Al- ggna's seven points on .smashes through the center. In the third quarter he started out with a flve yard plunge, watched Lee make two and Michel five yards off tackle and then plunged 13 yards to Webster City's six yard line. Michel lost five yards but Long went through center for ten and then two more to •core. Another plunge by Long gave Algona Its extra point. Tho center of the line where Captain Bud Anderson, Clarence Devlne and Bob Conklln held forth was a big factor in making Long's gains pos- slbzle, opening up good holes for the fullback to plunge through. Wetyter City scored Its first touchdown at the start of the second quarter on a plunge from the four yard line. A pass Interception near the end of the first period had given them the ball and a series of off tackle plays and a reveroe brought them, down to scoring territory. Plunges, Pass Score Two The Lynx scored their second touchdown the hard way, on a sustained drive. After taking tbe ball on the 35 yard line after the kickoff Webster City marched straight down the field alternating sweeps at the ends with shots at the center of the line finally scoring a touchdown and point after touchdown on off tackle slants. 13 HURT IN FOUR AUTO CRASHES 10 Hmkers Ready To Seek County Title Ten husky Kossuth corn buskers, one hour and 20 minutes.

' One factor In the content which aided Webster City no end wna the punting of their kicker whose long boots nullified several Algona often slve drives. One of his kicks was good for a total of 80 yards. The Algona line-up consisted o Spear and Baas, ends; Schultz ant ICIirhardt, tackles; Devlne and Conklin, guards and Captain Ander son, center. In the backfleld Mich •1 and Lee started at the halves Lewis Neville at quarterback Junior Long, fullback.

Knot) "Andy" Anderson, Lakota m K » school athletic coach, was playing his hunches In last Saturday's football games around the middle west. And he hit a couple of stunners right an the nose. • He called for a tie between Indiana soul Nebraska, and another tie and a scoreless orie at that, between Ohio State and Northwestern, And because he did,, he won the year's subscription for last week. He missed only one game, the Purdue-Fordham tie, and picked Purdue, 7 to 0, which wasn't too far off, In second place, Bob Williams of Algona missed two games, the Ohio- Northwestern tie, and the Purdue- Fordham tie. Third place winner was Jesse Blanchard, Jr., of Lone Rock, who missed only the Purdue- Fordham tle( he picked Purdue, 7-6) and the Ohio-Northwestern tie. The great bulk of the contestants missed three games, the ties. Others were playing for upsets, but picked the wrong ones. In the next group after the winners, or class "B", as your pal, N. O. Knot, sorts them out, were the following: H. W. Hollands, worth, Bob LaBarre, Willis Cotton of Lone. Rock, "The Lone Wolf of box 146, Sexton, Iowa, Father Ah- tnann, J. M. Blanchard of Lone Rock, Don Blanchard of Lone Rock, Erma Benscboter of LuVerne, who was better than her husband, Imelda Dooley, Valeria Williams, who would have been a winner except that sho picked Missouri over Iowa State Blnde th* disastrous fire last spring at the old location of the firm, the Christensens have been desirous of relocating a store In Algona.' The building they occupy was built especially for them by H. R. Cowan & Son, v.-ho own the property. Other firms who handled tho work besides the Co'vnns, who did tho Kcnernl contracting, were the F. S. Norton & Son lumber yard, Pratt Klcctrlc, LnlnR & Muckey, Galle Towne, Reliable Decorators and Cowan Building Supply. The building has a full basement, and Is equipped with a heating system that can be turned Into air cooling unit during the summer, Algona welcomes a fine new store to Ha thriving and growing business section. Bud Zender, Pat Cullen, Arlo Larson, Russell Larson, Vic Stell, Delmra Cooper, H. E. Bartlett, Percy Kuhn and Julian Chrlschllles. Passing mention might also be made of a few other entries. Ken Miller of West Bend was playing hunches strong and almost hit Iowa and Chicago correct, picking a 26 to 13 score for Iowa, Hq,wever, he also picked Michigan and Illinois, and Michigan should have won, which would have been' the real upset It was noticeable that Hawk' eye support even against Chicago was whittled down to a small margin. Woody Cook was another fellow who might have been in the chips except for picking Missouri against Iowa State. From a standpoint of picking close to the actual scores, Jesse Reynolds did a good job, miss- Ing the three ties by only one point each, but he also picked Chicago and Iowa to tie, which ruined him. Well, the going's getting tougher, week by week. So here we go gain. Subscriptions of one year, eight months and six months are tho prizes, and don't follow our lead on the scores: Colgate (13) at Iowa (7). Michigan (13) at Yale (7). Carnegie Tech (0) at Notre Dame (14). Chicago (0) at Ohio State (26). Northwestern (0) at Illinois (0). .Kansas State (10) at Indiana (13). Wisconsin (0) at Purdue (0). Kansas (6) at Iowa State 13). 'Nebraska (7) at Oklahoma (6). year the top three pickers from each district will be ellgtbfe for the state met The following counties will probably be represented at the district contests Lyon, Osceola, Dickinson, Emmet, Kossuth, Sioux, O'Brien, Clay, Palo Alto, Plymouth, Cherokee, Buena Vista, Sac, Greene, Carroll and Mctiona. Because the district meet and tbe state meet, the latter to be held at Rlngsted, are to be held In North Iowa, the county event is expected to gain added interest It is also the first time In several years that a county corn husking contest has been held in Kossuth. No admission will be charged. Titonka Youth. 19, Given A Suspended Senten WeJter B/Calll/s, Yi TltonlwIF: C.
