4-^Atgonq Upper DM Metnw TuetJoy, January 31, 19SO Algona Bows To Hampton In Conference Tourney Finish Bulldogs Batter Eagle Grove And Iowa Falls First Hampton's Bulldogs, a team that had won only two of its first six conference starts, kickec dope buckets all over the place at Webster City, last week, and in the North Central Conference tournament final, against Algona, took a 41 to 35 decision, Saturday. Previous to meeting Algona, the, Hampton crew upset Webster City, the conference leaders regular standings. Algona's inability to hit the hoop in the first half spelled disaster against Hampton. Algona Led Early The Bulldogs from Algona led for the first five minutes, but then their shooting eye deserted them, and the score at the half was 22 to 10 in favor of Hampton. The game wasn't very thrilling up to that point, especially for the Algona cheering section. Rebounds refused to wind up in Algona's possession, and Hampton had an extremely high percentage of successful tosses. But in the second half, it can truthfully be said that Algon had a slight edge, but not enoug to overcome the deficit of 12 points at the half. Big Hampton Center Hampton boasts a six foot three inch center by The name 01 Schipper, a sophomore who weighs 200 Ibs. Pitted against him, Sparks did a good job for Algona. Schipper eventually left the game with personal fouls, as p of did two other of his team mates. Algona lost Ross and Hutchison via the foul route, and Ray Ross had to leave the game after being knocked out when his head hit the floor as he dove for a ball. Anderson played a steady and good game during the entire contest and sank his three free throws to boost his consecutive free throw total to 12 in the last four games. Webster Cily Next Next Friday night the Algona team again travels to Webster City, this time to play Webster City itself for what may be the conference title. Webster City .__... holds first place at the moment • (210), A. Wittkopf ^202), R. Pick In the first game of the tournament, Algona downed Eagle Grove at Humboldt, 55 to 35, and then won its second round game against Iowa Falls m a nip and tuck battle, 32 to 30, to enter the finals.

Holy Family took over the lead and it looked like they had the game on ice with 10 seconds to go. The score board indicated the smile of victory was about to go to Mason City with a 38-35 score. It was at this point that Jim Egan made his move, dropping in his layup from his guard position. He had scored one field goal and two free throws before this but that last one was really the big one.

One of the unutual features in today's Upper Det Moines It the Bradley Bros, advertisement featuring a page of drawings of Kossuih county farmers (elected at random from a large collection owned by the Iowa State Bank. The drawings were borrowed from the bank for use in this novel advertisement. While the page was in preparation, it excited so much comment among the Bradley Bros, staff as to who the farmers were, that Joe Bradley decided to add a little "contest" interest to the page. Consequently, Bradley Bros,, is offering a prise to the person who can correctly guess the largest number of names of the farmers shown on the page. According to Mr. Bradley, all that is necessary for the reader to do is tear the page from the paper .write the name of the farmer below his picture, and thai! the page to Bradley Bros. The winner will be announced later. ff \ / GbCj^C/' • • n In Stockings by MO J U D Their extra-dark seams and heels are slimming, alluring, provocative.
