Coach Jim Geelan's Knights will host St. Joseph's of Mason City at the high school this Sunday, Nov. 25, in their second game of the year. The Knights and Maroons battled tooth and nail through the first half. The visitors, sporting a fine set of guards, Melendez and Calahan, managed to lead, 16-11, at the quarter and 24-16 at halftime before blasting the game wide open. Melendez and Calahan really went to work after the half. They stole the ball several times and went in for lay-ups, and started the Maroon attack, which functioned well inside and outside, rolling. The visitors piled up a 49-29 lead at the three-quarter mark, and had a 30-point bulge 1 during the fourth period before the Knights chopped it with a rally of their own. Cecil Schilmoeller, who was outstanding for St. Cecelia's, and Mark Seeley, who couldn't hit early but made up for it late in the game* led the Knights' rally. Schilmoeller finished the game with 16 points, while SeeleV got 11. Calahan and Skram led the Maroons with 19 points each and Melendez chipped in with 13. Holy Family held a 28-16 edge in' field goals during the fray, but the Knights consistently hit from the free throw line to make a game of it.

All-Star Team Cornbelt Grid Loop Selected Ruthven's Rams, Cornbelt Conference champs, placed five men on the 13-man all-league team selected by coaches recently. Only three men from this area landed positions on the first team, while five more landed on the second team. Gary Anliker, West Bend end, Clarence Rezac, Armstrong, and Dennis Krominga, Titonka, backs, were the area footballers who landed first team positions. The fact that Titonka, whose Indians romped to second place in the loop with a 6-1 mark, placed only one man on the first team proved a disappointment to many fans in this area. The Indians had an outstanding season, winning their last five starts after dropping two of their first three games. Not only that, Coach Lyle Opheim's squad had at least three men comparable to any in the conference. Of course, all-conference teams usually depend on seniors, so the Indians' GRID GUESSERS CONTEST BY 'Ol Man Mose Four Grid Guessers picked 15 games out of 20 correctly last Saturday and three shared the cash honors for the weelc.

Second place was won by Bill Harriett of Alcjona with 67 for high point total, and third place went to Elaine Hagg, with 65 high point total. . Also picking 15 correct was B. J. Bradford, but high point total ol 62 kept the entry out of the winner's circle.

Moe, Dick Palmer, Harry Spongberg, Al Slobr, Pauleite Slobe, Don Engesser, Gene Abbot, Carla Laubenthal, Lyle J.
