Algona Hi Cagers Drop 4th Game by One Basket, 18-16 E. W. Lusby TRY I'm safe saying that. My own customers won't do it. That's what they're through doing. Maybe they thought it was just another one of their guesses the first time they drove in here for my Special Winter Blend Conoco Bronz-z-z. Now they know they've got the right one, and every cold morning tells them so, and they're getting swell mileage along with starting that never misses. I've even got one man that always had heat in the garage, but keeps it off now, and sdves the expense, and tells me the car never used to start up near as fast as it does on Conoco Bronz-z-z. He's one of the ones that keep sending me in other people, which is a heap sight better than my trying to out-yell all the different brands of gasoline.

No one else scored more than one field goal, tfarksmanshlp from the free throw ine was much better than hi previous games. The Bulldogs connected on six out of eight tries. But Clarion, although it had only six free hrows as the result Of smart Bulldog defensive work, connected on 'our to nullify Algona's gift shot accuracy.
