Rog Meyer 11 and Rich Black 10 for the Bullpups. The victory upped coach Keith Christie's won-loss mark for the past four years to 55-10, an amazing .847 percentage of victories. 14-Algona, (la.) Upper Des Moinej thunday, Pcb. 24, 1966 AHS Hard Pressed, But Runs Record To 16-2 I AROUND ALGONA Algona's Bulldogs wrapped up the regular season, won their third straight game, upped their season mark to 16-2 and presented Coach Howie Stephenson with his 100th victory in six years at the helm of the locals Tuesday night - but had all kinds of trouble getting past Hampton, 60-48, in a North Central Conference game before a full house in the local gym. The Stephenson-men were probably looking ahead to the big meeting with Garrigan In the first round of the District Tournament at Garrigan Fieldhouse Monday night, causing them to play under par - and there was no luster left in the loop race as Clear Lake had already wrapped up the title earlier. Algona finished second with a 12-2 mark. Defensively, Algona turned in a creditable job. The shooting and team rebounding were off and many turnovers came as a result of loose ball handling. However, the Bulldogs pulled away during the third period after managing a four point halftime lead - and actually won handily. Five seniors started for the Bulldogs, and the sixth saw action before regular guards Craig Espe and Tom Claude went into action late in the first quarter. Three dandy fielders byDanMerryman, a couple by Dale Teeter, who also canned two free tosses, and one by Brad Kraft shot the locals Into leads of 6-1 and 10-1 midway through the quarter, then the pace slackened and it was 14-11 when the buzzer sounded. It was 16-11, then 16-15 early in the second round before Dave Walker, Espe, Claude and Teeter furnished the points that gave Algona a 22-15 bulge - and it looked like the club was on the move. However, the visitors warmed up, Algona cooled off, and it was 28-24 at halftime. The teams traded baskets early in the third stanza and it was 32-30 before the Bulldogs gave Hampton the bum's rush, getting 11 of the next 12 points for a 43-31 bulge at the three-quarter mark. Eight points by Claude and three by Walker sparked the rally that in the long run stitched the verdict. The lead went to 54-34, then 56-36 midway through the final period before the losers closed the gap to 12 points at the end. John Zimmer of Hampton led both teams in scoring with 18 points, while Teeter led the Bulldogs with 17. Claude pumped in 14, Merryman and Walker nine each and Espe eight for the winners, while Jim Heilskov added 11 to the Hampton total. Teeter pretty well handled the rebounding for the Bulldogs in the first half - and nabbed 17 during the night. Walker came up with 10, while Heilskov got nine and Zimmer and Mark Douglas eight each for Hampton. Algona held the upper hand in rebounds, 37-33, in steals, 10-9, and in blocked shots, 5-2, as Teeter knocked down three and Walker two. In defense of the showing the regular season finale was probably not as dismal as it seemed to the fans who perhaps are too accustomed to the sizzling-type game normally witnessed. All clubs have off nights.

PRINTING THAT PULLS and does Justice to your business, fairly priced. Upper Des Moines APPRECIATED STORY Dear Mrs. shferk - One of my nieces sent me a dipping of your report of our little interview while I was in Algona. I was much pleased with it. I did not expect so much. It was very well done. Last Friday, we had an alumni meeting of the Morningside graduates in this vicinity. I showed the president of Morningside the clipping, and he said he would like a copy for note in the college paper. He was interested because I am one of the older, if not the oldest, living alumnus of the college. I am glad of the privilege of living a long time, but hope this is not the only thing I will be remembered for. Very sincerely yours, Fred Jay Seaver P. 0. Box 1057 Winter Park, Fla.
