Esthenllle and the Bears have not met previously this season, but the Bulldogs downed the Mid- gels, 52-43, here Jan. 29. The Bears had an 8-game victory skein earlier in the season that was chopped by St. Edmond during the CYO Tournament. At the present, the two local clubs possess the finest combined record ever chalked up since Garrigan opened its doors several years ago, with a 25-5 mark - and that's winning games at a .833 clip. Garrigan has four games remaining and the Bulldogs have three left on their regular schedules. TOP SCORERS Each club has three men hitting points at better than 11 per game. The Garrigan brigade is led by Dick MuUer, 282 points, 18.8 average; Bill Reding, 195, 13; and Don Potthott, 184, 12.3. Dale Teeter, who sets a new 3-year scoring mark with each point he gets, heads the Bulldog bombers with 347 points and a 23.1 average, followed by Dan Merryman, 155, 11.1; and Craig Espe, 165, 11. Teeter now has 946 career points and Potthoff 541. Both are seniors. Muller, a Junior, now has 504 points, and he will undoubtedly set a 4-year mark at Garrigan before graduation. HIGH AVERAGE In 15 games, the Bears have pumped in 397 field goals and 229 of 377 free throws for a total of 1022 points, an average oi 68.1 per game; while the opposition has canned 322 fielders, 242 of 391 free throws for 904 points and a 60.3 average. The Bears have committed 3S8 fouls, compared to 304 by opponents. Other Bears who have scored well at times are Bob Smith, 107 points, 7.1 average; Brian LaBarre, 92, 6.1; and Dick Bleich, 86, 5.7. FINE DEFENSE The Bulldogs have hit 337 field goals and 284 of S82 free tosses for 958 points, an average of 63.8 per game, while giving up 299 field goals and 210 of 339 free throws, 810 points, 54-point average, to opponents. Algona has committed 247 fouls and the opponents have been charged with 262. Other top scorers for the Bulldogs are Dave Walker, 1 39 points, 9.2 average; and Tom Claude, 61, 7.6.

Pocahontas Is on top of the boys' race and Rockwell City leads the girls. R.

Well, we get a little of everything in a newspaper office, and Tuesday it was the task of running down a story about a tree that walked. Rumors were flying fast and furious around Algona about an incident reported to have happened Sunday night. Four teen-agers were said to have been driving on a country road near Burt when lo - there ahead of them was a tree walking. The driver made a U-turn and tore back into Burt to report the incident, the rumor said, and a couple of the teen-agers were hospitalized with shock, etc., etc. County of fleers were reported to have gone in search of the walking tree. Well, the Upper Des Moines is happy to report that there seems to be no walking tree, no teenagers are hospitalized, and someone with a darned good imagination had a field day.
