Corwith-Wesley School To Start Football Next Fall The Corwith-Wesley Com* minity school board of education at its last board meeting approved football as a high school activity, Plans are to have football on a limited basis next fall and then to have a regular schedule in the North Star Conference. With Corwith-Wesley playing football, there will be eight schools in the conference. Baseball will be a spring and summer activity. Lights will be installed on the baseball field which will also be used as a football field. It has been difficult to schedule games in the fall since most schools in the conference play football. Since football is a new sport to the school and the school community, it may take some time to build up an active interest in the sport. However, other communities who have done the same thing last year are very happy with the support and interest they are receiving from the pupils and the communities of their school district. Extra curricular activities have received strong support and it is hoped that in time football will become a sport that the communities will support and enjoy. It is also another activity available to boys. To some who do not take part in any activities, this sport may be the answer. Algona Grappler At S.D. State, Wins Nine Of Ten BROOK3NGS, S. D. - Mike Kain, above, seems to have a sure-fire formula for winning on the wrestling mat. It goes something like this: Either pin 'em or shut 'em out. A formula like that could be hard to prove, but a quick look at the South Dakota State University junior's dual meet record should convince any non-believer. Kairi, a graduate of Algona high school, has won nine of 10 matches this season. Three of his four victories were pins. Then, after being handed his only defeat of the year, he responded by winning five straight decisions. In three of them beheld his opponent scoreless. Three times Mike has given up points while winning decisions. First he took a 9-1 verdict from North Dakota's Larry Wenz,then an 11-2 victory over Augustana's Don Ryland, and recently a 9-2 verdict over Dean Dormanen of North Dakota State. Kain's one defeat this season, only the second of his collegiate dual meet career while he has posted 20 victories, was at the hands of Minnesota's John Klein. The Minnesota captain, slapped Mike to the mat at 7:41 as Coach Wally Johnson's Big Ten powerhouse handed the Jacks their only dual loss of the season, 22-9. Ironically, all three of Mike's pins have been at 177-pounds while his three whitewash decisions were at 167-pounds. His defeat also came at 167. '33 Chevy? '53 VW? '63 Ford?

Jackrabbit Coach Warren Williamson observed* "Mike is constantly going for the fall/' This characteristic has resulted in 10 takedowns this season. He shares the team lead in this category. After posting an 11-1 dual meet record as a sophomore last season, Kain had what could be termed a disappointing North Central Conference tourney showing. He was upset 4-2 by North Dakota's John Nelson in the semifinals of the 157-pound division and had to settle for third place. Nelson went on to claim the championship. Mike is not one to let down, however. "The rest of the squad looks to him for the big win when the chips are down," his coach said. "We feel he is the one to beat at 167-pounds in TuMday, March 1, 1966 Algeria (la.) Upper DM Molnw the North Central Conference tourney slated March 4 and 5 at Brookings. In a recent outing, Mike had one of his better performances of the year defeating Nebraska's John Hallgren 3-0. Williamson also singled out Kain's performance against St. Cloud State and Kansas State as highlights. Kain pinned St. Cloud's Mike Rybak at 5:09 and slapped K-State's Gary Watson to the mat at 7:00 in the season's opener. An ag business major, Mike had a fine prep career under champ Martin at Algona. He is the son of the Edward Kains, who farm near Algona. The Wabash River was named for the Indian word, "ouabache" meaning white.
