STAR GUARD MAY BE LOST FOR SEASON Jerry Anderson Out; Humboldt Is Victor, 51-3(1 It appeared likely, Monday morning, that Jerry Anderson. Algona high school basketball guard, was through for the season. Anderson has been ill, off and on, for a week or more, and after last Friday night's game against Humboldt, he went to a doctor Saturday morning, where x-rays were taken, and he was advised not to play any mote .basketball —at least temporarily. • Anderson had developed a bad case of pleurisy, and the ailment has not been correcting itself the x-rays showed. Sparks, ROM 111 At the same time, Coach King was hoping that several other players would recuperate fast enough to play against Emmets* burg here tonight. Both Spavin and Rots tiara been fighting a siege of flu, and one or two other squad members are also not in the best of shape. In addition to Emmetsburg, here tonight, the Bulldogs face Webster City here this coming Friday, the 17th, and a patched up lineup seems likely for both games. Humboldt Easy Winner Last Friday night at Humboldt, Algona took probably its worst defeat of the season, losing 51 to 30. Humboldt floored a team that went to work in a businesslike manner, and had the game under control all the way. The final score was Humboldt 51, Algona 30. Algona has no chance at the conference title this year, but the two teams were closer matched than the score would indicate, but illness as mentioned slowed down the locals considerably. Grapple rs 2nd In District; 4 To State Meet Fourj Algona high school wrestlers won their way into the Mate championship finals, as a result of victories at Clarion in the district meet, last Friday and Saturday. Dick Kain took the 95 Ib. district title, and Paul Fisher captured the 123 Ib. district title. These two men, with Monte Black who took second in the 112 Ib. class and Bob McDanel who was second in the 105 Ib. class, will represent Algona at Mason City, Friday, when the state meet opens. At Clarion, Algona's team took second place, scoring 23 points. Mason City won the district title with 27 points. Jerry Black took third place in the 118 Ib. class, adding to the total for the Red and Black. Coach Leon Martin's entire squad did excellent work at the district meet. In the 145 Ib. class, Platt of Algona won his first round m»»ch against Higgins of Gilmore City, in a fall, but lost his second match against Nelson of Fort Dodge by a decision. Clawson of Algona lost in the semifinal round to Nerhun of Fort Dodge, by a decision. In the 129 Ib. class, Reilly lost to Staley of Hampton in the first round. , Cfje Algona Upper Be* Jflote SECTION TWO ALGONA, IOWA, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1950 VOL. 85-NO. 6 Butt Girl Cagers Give State Champs ft Scare Burt Boys Are Mainstays For Upper Iowa Nine Eugene Geilenfeld, son of Mr. and Mrs. Godfrey Geilenfeld, and Gerry Eimers, son of Mr. and Mrs. Emil Eimers of Burt, will be two of the eight returning lettermen on the Upper Iowa university baseball squad, now preparing for the spring season. r 'Doc" Dorman, the Peacock baseball coach, announced the schedule and named the returning lettermen this week. Eugene is a sophomore at Upper Iowa, majoring in physical education and minoring in history. He graduated from the Burt high school in 1945. Gerry is a senior at Upper Iowa, majoring in physical education and minoring m biology. He is a member of the Lettermen's club. He graduated from the Burt high school in 1943. Seneca Wins 2 From Grant High Seneca's boys and girls basketball teams were each winners in games played at Grant Consolidated, Feb. 7. The girls won their game, 44 to 39, and the boys took a close contest, 28 to 26. Dorothy Oftedahl with 19 points led the victors, while E. Oftedahl and Foley were other pace setters. Patterson ot Grant fed her team, tipping in 18 points. Scoring in the boys game was evenly divided, with every team member contributing his share. Butt's sectional championship girls basketball team gave the 1949 Iowa state girls basketball champions a good scare,, last Friday hight, before losing by a 55 to 50 score. The Burt team, coached by Paul Bolie, went to Wellsburg, Where they played an exhibition against the state title holders. Burt started slowly, but found themselves in the second quarter and applied pressure from that point on. The fact that the game was played at Wellsburg with Burt unfamiliar with the floor, speaks well for the chances of the Kossuth team in the district meet this week, at Estherville. Burt meets Gruver, Thursday night. Whittemore, the other Kossuth sectional winner, played tonight (Feb. 14), ut Webster City, with Pocahontas the foe. Scor* Tied Twice But to get back to the Burt- Wellsburg game, the score was tied twice, at 38 all. and again at 40. The score was 52 to 50, with two hiinutes remaining, in favor of Wellsburg. Coach Bolie said he felt confident that his team could beat Wellsburg on the Burt floor, and it would be a tossup on a neutral court. Junker, 4th team all-state guard last year, and Boekoff, a sophomore sister of an all-state first team player last year, were outstanding for Wellsburg. , For Burt, Lavonne Bleich with 30 points, was the high scorer of the contest, and played a fine game. Ethel Lampe, post guard, turned in a fine defensive game for Burt, especially on rebounds. Now For District Forwards, Carlsen and Dremmel, and guards, Weiske and Miller, also played outstanding games. At the present time Wellsburg has a record of 23 wins and 3 losses, and Burt has a record of 19 wins and three losses, to Gruver whom they face Thursday, and Armstrong, as well as Wellsburg. • The best wishes of the county go with both. Burt and Whittemore as they enter the district tourneys. Lynk's 224 Line Best For Week At Barry Alleys Six maple crashers had lines of 200 or better in league play at Barry Alleys, last week.

And that was the case at Bancroft, last Wednesday night, when the Johnnies barely nosed (5ut the St. Joe team, 32 to 30. In fact at the end of the third quarter, Father Theobold's boys were leading, 24 to 23, but Vince Meyer's team came back in the final stanza to take the game. Hair Raising Finish After St. Joe was leading at the automatic time out, 30 to 27, Jim Egan's free throw and a bucket by Pat Mulligan tied up the contest with 30 seconds left. Then Egan was fouled, and his two free throws gave the Johnnies the victory. The game made it 16 wins and four defeats for the season by St. John's. McGuire and Mulligan, the centers, staged a great battle, with McGuire tipping in 14 points, while Mulligan collected How They Tallied Game summary: St. John'* (32) fg Egan .._ - 2 Froehle 0 Mulligan - 7 Saunders * Murray «f Lenslng * 702 Lb.

With the establishment of WOI- TV, television reception has improved and interest has received a boost here. Seven sets are known to be in operation in Algona, with Harold Blinkman, Milton Dahl, Ed Genrich, Mathew Platt, Lloyd Pratt, Algona Refrigeration and Frank Vera now TV fans. Clearest reception is now from WOI-TV which is about 80 miles from Algona as the beam goes. Algona is about 150 feet higher than Ames so that also aids in reception. Next in popularity are the Minneapolis stations, KSTP-TV and WCTN-TV. Omaha stations are beaming in strong. Harold Blinkman is the latest fan of the television shows. It is interfering with his schedule at home, however. He installed the set early last week and he finally ate dinner at 11:30 the first evening. 18. ft 4 0 4 1 0 1 11 10 EVERYDAY is Dollar Day AT RICHARDSON'S FURNITURE COMPANY the store that LIKES to be compared think of us when you think of quality, — for quality is all we ever thinkofwhen we think of you! happy, for he received a present of fish last week. It may take him some time to eai it all, though; there was exactly 102 pounds of it sent htm by his brother, Dave. The Dave Andersons, who farm northwest of town, are vacationing in Texas, and Dave, an ardent fisherman, has been irytng his luck in ihe Gulf of Mexico. The package sent Ms brother included red snappers and groupers, both strange to the middlewesi. and both of which may reach 100 pounds in siie. Dave wrote that he had not yet encountered any that large, however. One grouper he caught did weigh forty-three pounds after being gilled and gutted. One day's fishing netted Dave's party fifty-fix pounds of red snappers and sixty pounds of groupers, most of which are now being enjoyed by certain of Dave's Swea City friends. The fith- pariies, he writes, go to a point twenty-eight miles out in the Gulf where the water is from 160 to 170 feet deep. Their lines of extremely heavy cord are attached to three pounds of sinkers and from then on there is real sport. IF IT'S KEWS WE WANT ITI AND HE FORGOT TO REMEMBER.
