ALGONA TEAMS, BANCROFT, TO DISTRICT Three Kossuth Fives Sectional Meet Victors Both Algona representatives in the sectional tournament fought their way into the district tournaments next week, starting March 6, by winning their contests Saturday night in the sectional here. St. John's of Bancroft also won its sectional, at Swea City, in class "A". Algona high school won the finals of the class "A" sectional m a rough and tumble game with Titonka, 44-32, while Algona's St. Cecelia Academy overpowered Burl, 39-32, to take the "B" crown. The two championship games were the highlight of the tournament, with fast action, intense play and basket-for-basket shooting. St. Cecelia'* Over B«rl In the first game of the evening, St. Cecelia's tangled with a rangy and well-built Hurt outfit, Hurt started fast and moved to a C-2 lead. By some heads-up basketball. S. C. A. was able to overcome this deficit and tie things up 11-11 at the end of one quarter. In thai second quarter, ihe Blue Knights from Algona showed colorful shooting, hitting on pivots, longs, drive- ins and running push shots. They brought the scoring up lo 21-14 at half-time. Eldon Winkel took over in the third quarter to get into his tournament pace. He twisted and jumped his way into the lead for individual scoring and had 20 points mid-way in this stanza. Winkel and company increased the ISad To 33-19 at the end of three quarters. Burt Rally Late A fourth quarter Burt rally almost proved to be the undoing of St. Cecelia's. Burt came from a 20-35 deficit to a final 39-32 loss, but they made it a hot final period. By hitting from all sorts of positions and from every spot on the floor, they dropped through 12 points while they held the Academy to six. ' Eldon Winkel held the limelight in the scoring department, both in this game and throughout the tournament. He rapped in 22 points for his team against Burt, 17 against Whitttfmore Presentation and IS against Fenton for a total of 54 points... ihe boy is only a sophomore) This win for the Academy put them <n the "B" tournament at Forest City and they will meet Corwith Thursday night, March 9. Titonka-Algona Thriller The Titonka - Algona high school game was a different story, with both teams having to fight the whole way to maintain its position. Algona struck first on- a free throw by Ross and built it into a five point lead at one point. Algona held a slim margin at the end of this first stanza, 9-7. Then Titonka hit the road and broke into a 10-9 lead at one time. Anderson took it away from the Tyke Indians on a long. Amesbury neutralized this with a couple of fielders to put them out in tront, 14-12. The battle raged, the basketball flew, and when it was over, the half saw Titonka out in front, 22-18. .„ , Whose Game When the wild second half began, it was like a breaking in a dam. Algona showed a resurgence of its old power to overcome the Tyke rally and move into a 27-25 lead. Ross and Sparks formed a combine that baffled the Indians. Then Tyke started hitting from the free throw line, taking and making four straight free throws before Algona could get a look-in.

Another factor that aided in this last quarter run-away was- the loss of three Titonka men on fouls. Hutchison tapped in the last field goal to make the score 44-32 and send Algona high to the class "A" district at Humboldt. Al- gpna hits Belmond Tuesday evening, March 7.

St. John's Drops 51-38 Game To Mason City Five St. John's of Bancroft took the count from St. Joe's of Mason City, 51-38 at Mason City, Feb. 19. The Johnnies couldn't get rolling, taking on a peck of trouble from the start. St. Joe moved into a 12-7 lead in the first quarter and followed that up with a 25-17 advantage at half-time. All six men on the Bancroft bench were able to get into the scoring column but not often enough. Bancroft did close the gap to 30-27 at the end of three quarters of play, but Mason City moved out again to their 51-38 final victory. Gene Saunders paced the Ban- crofters with 13 points on six fielders and one free throw. Carlson hit 20 points for Mason City on nine field goals and two gift shots.

M. Stanfield farm near Lake City last fall has helped add $340 to the polio fund. At an auction recently, the animal was sold 42 times in one afternoon, for a total of $340, and the money was turned over to the march of dimes fund. ESCAPED Dick Kelly of West Union had a narrow escape recently. Through error, a coalhoist dumped four and a half tons of lump coal on the cab of a truck Kelly was driving. The weight smashed the cab down so he was caught between the crushed top and the steering wheel but he was unhurt. Generally speaking, 640 is a pretty good three game total in any oowling league, but it just wasn't good enough last week at Barry's to take top honors. Walt ,Decker warmed up the alley and rolled a 241, 224 and 198 for a 663 total. This shadowed A. Cotton's total of 640 built on 224, 236 and 180. Something else happened at Barry's that .changed the complexion of thingsvOld Style, who the week before had jumped into first place, was unseated when the Legionaires beat them. Barry's took advantage of the situation by beating the National Guard and moving back into first place in the Blue league. Burt still commands the Green league, while Pettit's PJantatipn heads the Purple league. Ten other keglers were hitting the.200 mark, with Walt Decker's 241 the top. Others were Ted Vera (818-214), Ed Mittag (207), R. Donovan (211), John Grotte (212), H. Benschoter (215), J. Schimmel (219), Or. Thissen (201), C. Richards" (206), Bud Lichter (202) and W.
