Thirteen Bulldog lettermen as drills begin Good potential but very little experience An inexperienced team with good potential is the expectation of the new Algona high school head football coach Keith Christie as he awaits a possible 80 boys for the check-out of equipment at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Twice-a-day practice sessions begin Saturday and continue all next week from 9 until 11 a.m. and from 2 until 4 p.m. Of the expected 80, about 37 will be freshmen. Although Christie will have 13 lettermen returning, the ranks of the 6-2 Bulldogs of last year will be almost completely depleted. Ten of the starting eleven offensive players are gone with just junior Tom Jones returning. And seven of the starting 11 defensive players are also gone by graduation leaving just Jones, Bob Farnham, Larry Munger and Bill Boldridge back from that contingent. LETTERMEN include these foui plus backs Steve Waller, Randy Riedinger and Rich Black, and linemen Tom Claude, Clint Young, Chris Conn, Max Miller, Don Magen and Dave Camp. Christie's major problem will be to find a starting quarterback to replace Mark Conn. He will make his selection from four boys — Bill Boldridge, regular quarterback for the fresh-soph team two years ago; Steve Wal- ler, who saw very little action last year and none at quarterback; Roger Barr, junior and starting quarterback for the fresh-soph team last year; and Rod Rogert, a sophomore but a good thrower. When Christie makes his quar terback decision, it will also help clarify who else will be in the backfield. Waller and Black will almost certainly see lots of running action while Riedinger and Farnham will fight it out for the starting fullback shores. JUNIOR Jones, the only returning regular from both the offensive and defensive team, will be a mainstay at tackle. He is about 190 pounds this year. Only other junior lineman is Don Hagen, who at 170 pounds should do a good job at center. Christie has a wealth of guards. Munger was a starter on defense but saw little offensive action. Tom Claude, Dave Camp and Clint Young also saw very little varsity action. If he doesn't make it at quarterback, Boldridge will probably be back at offensive end and safetyman. Max Miller, who saw duty both on offense and defense at tackle, is expected to play opposite Jones at tackle. Biggest of the backs is Farnham at 185. Christie looks for big things from several other juniors including 185-pound Steve Voyles, Prize winners TIJK SECURITY Sfvri; BA.KK RECENT WINNERS in Ron & Jack's Food Center's 4th anniversary celebration are shown above and below.

Besides Rogert, Larry Taylor is a sophomore who could see lots of action this fall. Senior Greg Betts, who injured a hand before the season started last year and played just the last couple of weeks, could make his presence felt also. The Bulldogs will open with Emmetsburg Sept. 9 in the first of three straight road games before coming home for the opener here on Sept. 30. The schedule follows: Sept. 9 — Emmetsburg, there Sept. 16 — Clear Lake, there Sspt. 23 — Clarion, there Sept. 30 — Iowa Falls, here Oct. 7 — Humboldt, here Oct. 14 — Webster City, there Oct. 21 — Eagle Grove, here Oct. 28 — Hampton, here John Schutter breaks Iowa swim record At the Jefferson swim meet last Sunday John Schutter broke the old Iowa record of :24.7 in the 50 yard freestyle and tied the state record of :24.3. However, because the starter wasn't an A. A. U. official, the time will not be officially entered in the record book. In the boys 8 and under Jon Peterson won both the 25 yard freestyle and 25 yard backstroke. He swam against not only Iowa swimmers, but also swimmers from Omaiha and Rock Island. Jim Martin placed fifth in the 25 yard freestyle in that age group. Randy Nielsen took first in the boys 9-10 50 yard backstroke, and Shannon Lynch took sixth in the 50 yard freestyle. Paul Martin and Pat Korley from Emmetsburg teamed up with them to grab an easy first in the 100 yard freestyle relay for their age group. Susan Walker and Nita Limbaugh teamed up with other North Iowa conference swimmers and took second in both the 200 yard medley relay and 200 yard freestyle relay. Susan also took third in the 100 yard individual medley and sixth in the 50 yard breaststroke. Nita took fourth in the 50 yard backstroke. Ryan Lynch took sixth in the boys 13-14 100 yard breaststroke and swam on the fourth place 200 yard freestyle relay team. In addition to winning the 50 yard freestyle, John Schutter won the 100 yard freestyle in :53.2. John also anchored the 200 yard freestyle relay team to first place, coming within three seconds of the state record. Also on the relay were Ron Nelson, Algona; Soper, Emmetsburg; and Perry, of Sheldon. Ron took third in the 50 yard freestyle and fourth in the 100 yard freestyle. Ron's younger brother, Gary, placed second (.4 second off first) in the grueling 200 yard individual medley. He also placed sixth in the 100 yard breaststroke. He and Larry Taylor also swam on the fifth place 200 yard freestyle relay team.
