He started play with a drive in from the corner. He played one of his best games until he went out on fouls in the closing seconds of the game. That old mystery of basketball • • • why do players have hot and c ° ld nights ... is still unexplained. Ted Hutchison was held to two field goals Friday while he hit for 19 points the week before. Ted went out on five fouls early in the fourth quarter. Anderson Cold Jerry Anderson, who had been carrying a 12-point average up until Friday night, tipped in only one field goal but dropped in five charity tosses for a sub-par total of seven. Humboldt had a fighting team, built around the height and scoring punch of Hellickson at center. Olson took over much of the scoring load, however, by dropping in fire long, one-handed shots and three free throws for 13 while Hellickson got 10. Hellickson and Fevold were lost on fouls, too, dipper Bes SECTION TWO ALGONA, IOWA, TUESDAY, JANUARY 17, 1950 VOLUME 85-NO. 2 KOSSt/r// COUNTY "1 P 00 S ] Brandt Leagues Back To Normal With Ties Broken so */** AWUJO. n/u, imn£s were equalized to some degree in that department. Four Ties In First Half The score was tied four times in the first half, with a nine-all total at the end of one quarter. Algona was able to sweep to a 19-17 lead at the end of that first half. Humboldt came back strong after intermission transfusions, hitting for six points before Wellendorf and Boss combined on an off- tackle lateral to go the length of the floor for two points. During a rugged second half, the score was tied • three times with Humboldt leading in the third canto, 29-27. With 2:10 remaining to play, play was knotted at 35-35. Two free throws gave Humboldt their 37 points for the night and Wellendorf came through with one gift shot to put the cap on Algona's scoring. Algona's Bulldogs were hammering away at the basket as the game ended, with Jerry Anderson bouncing one off the rim for the last shot. • Bees Do Likewise For a recount of the Bee squad game, just change some of the names in the above story and that's it. Algona held a 6-5 lead League leaders at Brandt Lanes are .back to individual ownership again this week after a tie last week. It's Bauer and Mullers Cafe in the top positions after Bankers Life and Sharp's Jewelers provided hot competition. H. Jqhannsen started out to set the world on fire, or at least Brandt's alleys, when he rolled 213 and 221 in his first two games. Something put out his fire, however, and he dropped to 168 on Ms last try. Even so, he rolled 602 for high series of the week. Bob Williams was top dog in the 200-or-better class, hitting 231.

Barry's Leaders Become Fixtures It's pretty hard to dethrone a champ after he has gained his title, but when there are three champs, the job is much harder. Such a condition exists at Barry's where Burt, Barry's and the Plantation are still leading their leagues. Burt has the best lead, running five games ahead of its nearest rival*, Hoovers and Mainiiner, with a 41-13 record for tbe.jea- Barry's have won 83 and lost 21 while K. of C. and Old Style follow with 31-23. Plantation leads the Purple League with 32-22 (railed by S & L and Blanchard Lumber with 30-24. A. Shultz hung up the best Algona Imp. Co. after one quarter of play and the Plum Creek game was tied several times. At ~ the end of the third quarter, it was 22-22. Final was 35-33 for Humboldt. Algona's scoring punch, wrapped up in Bill Bryant's 18 points, was dulled when he went out on fouls late in the game. Second in command for scoring was Scanlan with seven followed by Peterson with five. Lowder led Humboldt's Bees with 11.
