2—ALGONA (Iowa) ADVANCE THURSDAY, SEPT. 8, AIN STEM BY JULIAN CHRISCHILLIS "Twice Honored b| State tari." HEINIE STEBRITZ, one of the deans of Algona musicians, recalls the visit to Algona by Lawrence Welk to which we referred in last week's column . . . Meinie and Welk played in the same band in 1923-24 — tha Lincoln Boulds group and both quit when payments from the leader were slow in coming. Welk formed his own group then as Heinle recalls it, appeared at the old K. of C. hall above the present Foster building in the latter part of May, 1925 . . . shortly after, Welk got on Yankton radio station WNAX and in a few months was playing the big dancs halls in Chicago and his fame continued to climb. Joe Hatten and son Don, 11, scan some of dad's many scrapbooks at their home in Redding, Calif. REMEMBER LEFTY Joe Hatten, the Bancroft farm boy who became^ a baseball great with the old Brooklyn Dodgers? .Well, he's now a Redding, Calif, mail carrier but still keeps an active interest in baseball . . . Hatten broke into organized ball back in 1939 and one of two strikeout records he set in his first year of organized ; ball at Crookston, Minn, still stands. He whiffed 21 batters an a regulation 9-inning game. Hatten retired in 1961 after pitching with Vancouver in the Pacific Coast league. He's nearing 50 and will be eligible for a $118 a month pension in November. His best year "was in 1947 when his 17-8 record helped the Dodgers to a National League pennant. • ' The Hattens have five children, two boys and three girls ranging in age from 8 to 17. Neither of the two boys has much interest in baseball. The family makes about three trips a year to Candlestick Park in San Francisco and visits with "oldtinie players such as Larry .Janssen, Giant pitching coach, manager Herman Franks and Coach. Cc!okie' Layagetto,/ ; 4 : ' , In all, Lefty Joe spent 22 years in organized baseball and pitched amateur ball at Redding after retiring in 1961. He's a ra.ia Bancroft can be proud of! IT WAS A DREARY summer on TV with an endless number of reruns occupying most of the prime television time . . . one of the bright spots, in our opinion, was the John Davidson show on Monday night's Kraft Theatre time . . . lots of music, pretty girls and a good-looking and talented singer in John 'Davidson made this a lop- flight show ... an oasis in a desert of TV drivel! FURTHER PROOF that the National League is a much stronger loop than the American is being produced by Balti, more's Frank Robinson, playing his first year in the American League after a career in the National . . , always a good National hitter but never a league batting champion, Robinson now holds a 10-point lead over Tony Oliva in the batting race . . . consistent World Series and All Star Game victories further enhance the National League's prestige. BY SHORTLY after 10 p.m., all but five of Kossuth's 35 townships had reported in their election results Tuesday night . . . normally, the first of the 35 is dribbling in by then using paper ballots . . . and the lights went off in Auditor Marc Moore's office at midnight this year compared to 4 or 5 a.m. before voting machines!

Bulldogs, Bears open Algona high to Emmetsburg for opener A new head coach, lots oC un familiar faces and three straight rosd games to open the season will-confront the 1966 edition .o f the Algona high school football team as the Bulldogs prepare for their opaner at 8 p.m. tomorrow night at Emmetsburg. Keith Christie, certainly a tested campaigner in athletics at Algona high school but undertaking his first year as head coach of a major sport, will send his Bulldogs against the E-Hawks full of enthusiasm and ready to go. The team had its first full scale scrimmage under the lights Friday night and the Bulldog :oaching staff reported they were "well pleased" with the results; It was the first contact the Bulldogs had had since the oreceding Tuesday because of the hot weather. THEY DISPLAYED flashes of good running, passing, catching and tackling and that's what the sport is all about. Christie had praise for the passing of Roger Barr, the pass catching of Tom Claude and the unning of Randy Riedinger. And he was quick to point out Jiat blocking by guards Larry Vlunger, Max Miller and Clint Young helped spring loose some •unners for good gains. Christie also was happy with the work of Mike Dreyer, who is showing increased capability as a first string tackle. "Our boys did some good tackling and blocking," Christie said Monday. "The staff was pleased but we've still got a long way to go." COACH CLINT Stille's Emmetsburg team is of course an unknown quantity. They are big, as they were last year when the Brothers to lead Garrigan GARRIGAN BROTHERS Dick and Jack Muller get set to lead their Bear mates here Friday night when last year's Lakes Conference champions, Estherville, opens the Bear schedule at 8 p.m. Dick will anchor a good line while Jack is expected to become one of Garrigan's finest linebackers this year. The Garrigan game will be the only home game until Oct. 8. Photo exclusively for the Advance by Mike Stillman. A PRE-SEASON LOOK AT FOUR KOSSUTH FOOTBALL TEAMS Titonka favorite in State Line Titonka is the team to beat with Armstrong, Swea City and Lincoln-Central given a chance of unseating the Indians according to a pre-soason poll of Kossuth coaches in the State Line Conference as the football season opens Friday. All conference teams will have non-conference games this week and will then start their seven- game conference slates next Friday. Following are thumbnail sketches of each of the four Kossuth county entries in the league. Bulldogs won a tough 14,4.3 y&r,-,- clic4''toming from'bMmU' i 't« frV diS s f k it. And certainly, at this stage TITONKA .HAS 10 LETTERMEN BACK too bad." According to most coaches, this is an understatement. Sass figures Armstrong and Lincoln-Central will be the tough ones in the loop this fall. There are 35 out for football at Titonka. Sept. 9 — Boone Valley, there Sept. 16 — Thompson, here Sept. 23 — Sentral, there Sept. 30 — Burt, here Got. 7 — Nora Springs, there Oct. 14 — Lincoln-Central, . here (Homecoming) Oqt. 21 — Sv/ea City, there Oct. 28 — Armstrong, here Nov. 2 — Woden-Cyrstal Lake, there at least, the 1966 team is not as far along as last year's club. The locals have been plagued with lots of minor injuries. Such boys as Steve Waller and Don Hiigen were operating at about, half speed last Friday with ankle sprains. Others including Larry Taylor and Steve Voyles, didn't suit up because of injuries. And of course Bill Boldridge, No. 1 quarterback in early practices, is out until at least Oct. 1 with a broken foot bone. His replacement, Roger Barr, did well in the Friday scrimmage though and gives promise as does his back-up man, Rod Rogert. Christie gave his tentative starting lineup for Friday night: Ends — Tom Claude and Chris Conn. Tackles — Mike Dreyer and Tom Jones. Guards — Larry Munger, Max Miller or Clint Young. Center — Phil Bode or Don Hagen. Quarterback — Roger Barr. Halfback — Steve Waller or Greg Betts. Wingback — Rich Black. Fullback — Randy Riedinger or Bob Farnham. Seller one of keys lo Notre Dame hopes Notre Dame, Ind. — Paul Seiler, a senior tackle from Algona. Iowa, was one of the 78 candidates who reported to Head Coach Ara Parseghian for the start of fall practice today marking the 78th beginning of a Notre Dame gride season. Seiler, 6-4, 235-pounds, missed earning his monogram with the Irish varsity last year despite seeing 52 minutes of varsity action. During the spring practice session Seiler dad an outstanding job as an offensive tackle and was given the Frank Hering award as the "outstanding offensive lineman." ! Seiler will be an essential factor in Parseghian's rebuilding of the offensive line for the 1966 football campaign. The Fighting Irish will open their 1966 season at home on Sept. 24 when they host Purdue University. co'ach Charles Sass inherited _ lettermen and the "team Co beat" role in the State Line Conference as he m ; epares his Titonka club for its season opener Friday nipht at Rcmvick against Boone Valley. Titonka had an 8-1 season last year and tied with Armstrong •cor the State Line title with a 5-1 mark. Lettermen back are Roger Wubben, Russ Sleper, Greg Miohaelsen. Charles Trunk Daryl Geisking, Eldon Rike, Mike Pearson, Mike Schmidt, Kevin Heyer and Steve Cosgrove. Sass is new at Titonka. He spent four years as assistant coaoh at Manilla high school and is a graduate of Wayne State Teachers in Nebraska and a na tive of that state. The Indians have half their regulars back and have good speed in the backfield. Sass say? he has several positions in the line that will be problems bu predicts his club will be "not LOCALS Sentral lost 10 of its 11 regulars from last year and will open at home Friday night against Kanawha. Sept. 9 — Kanawha, here Sept. 16 — Lincoln-Central, there Sept. 23 — Titonka, here Sept. 30 — Armstrong, there Oat. 7 — Swea City, here Oct. 14 —Woden-Crystal Lake, here Oct. 21 — Thompson, there Oct. 28 — Burt, there * $ * EIGHT LETTERMEN ON BURT SQUAD Eight lettsrmen sprinkle a squad of only 17 boys as Burt SENTRAL REBUILDS WITH 4 LETTERMEN Fenton — A major rebuilding job, centered around sophomores and juniors, is underway this season by new coach Bert Hanson, who came to Sentral flirect from Northwest Missouri §tate.,Teachers at Maryville, Mo. Hanson has only four lettermen back from last year's club Which finished third in the State Line Conference. They are Rick Shaw, Ron Dacken, Mike Lee and Jerry Nerem. The rest of his players will come from the squad of 30 boys who have shown lots of spirit and. desire in pre-season practices. ( "Our passing will be fairly good," Hanson reported this week, "but it's just hard to tell how we'll shape up when the season starts." He indicated Titonka, Swea City and Armstrong Ayill be the conference leaders *rom what he has heard around the loop. '-^gh s*h<>iftlvSHpr^>arefr for- the 1966 season under new head (Homecoming) Oct. 21 -^Woden-Crystal Lake, there Oct. 28 — Sentral, here Garrigan opens here Friday with Estherville You can sense in the Garrigan high school football camp that this could bs "THE" year. This feeling has prevailed in other pre-season forecasts but injuries have played key roles time and again in turning what looked like a bright season into just a .500 campaign. But as Coach Beanie Cooper prepares his Bears for the 1966 Opener against Estherville here Friday niaht at 8 p.m. on the Bear field, there Is the fp.elinq thM maybe things will i»ll all the way around this fall. Certainly, the opener Friday will be a key game, maybe as im- oortant a contest as Garrigan has olayed in its history. The foe, Estherville high school, was Lakes Conference champion last year and the only blemish on its bard was a 13-13 tie with Garrigan in the season opener. THE MIDGETS will be tough again if for no other reason than, having one of the finest backs in the Northwest part of the state in Roger Guge, a 200-pound senior who can run with the best of them. Asked whether he's a fullback or halfback, Cooper's only comment was: "I don't know but he'll be the guy that's carrying coach Richard Strouse. He was an assistant a year ago. Back from last year's team are John Fries, Tom Liehter, Howard Batt, Brad Cranston, Mike Hamilton, Allen Mescher, Clint Patterson and Jim Baer. "We lost nine of our starters from last year so we'll be young," Strouse told the Advance Tuesday. "But we have good size and pretty good speed. Our lack of experience will hurt us but our kids have good desire." Strouse figures Titonka will be the team to beat. Burt opens its season Friday against Meservey- Thornton at Burt. Sept. 9 — Meservey-Thornton, here Sept. 16 — Armstrong, there Sept. 23 — Swea City, here Oct. 30 — Titonka, there Oct. 7 — Lincoln-Central, there Oct. 14 — Thompson, here SWEA CITY HAS 35 OUT FOR FOOTBALL Coach Wayne Baker, who begins his second year as Swea City coach, has seven lettermen and 35 boys out for football as the team prepares for its opener here against Rolfe Friday night. Lettermen are Craig Larson, Eugene Person, Bill Mino, Mike Johnson, Melvin Peterson, Dean Greimann and Randy Newlin. Baker expects Swea to have a good defense with 190-pound Larson as one of the better tackles in the area. Larson is also expected to be a rugged linebacker and fullback on offense. He figures Titonka and Armstrong will be the strong conference teams with Lincoln-Central given an outside shot at the crown. Sept. 9 — Rolfe, here Sept. 16 — Woden-Crystal Lake, here Sept. 23 — Burt, there Sept. 30 — Thompson, here (Homecoming) Oct. 7 — Sentral, there Oct. 14 — Armstrong, there Oct. 21 — Titonka, here Oct. 28 — Lincoln-Central, there 1966 FINAL STANDINGS W Armstrong 5 Titonka 5 Sentral 4 Lincoln-Central 3 Swea City 3 Thompson 1 Burt 0 L 1 1 2 2 2 5 6 the ball, that's for sure." What he'll have to go along with him is unknown. The known quantity is the Garrigan team, lacking in depth but strong on the front line. It has good running backs in Jack Muller, Gene Lickteig and Tom Black and a fine quarterback and passer in Bill Reding. Up front, there's beef aplenty in the likes of Bob Schmidt, Dick Muller. Jerry Plathe and others. After the first eleven, things slide off quickly. IN PRE-SEASON scrimmages the top eleven has run almost roughshod over the reserves indicating that Cooper will have to go with 12 or 15 men. Key injuries could be more critical this year than ever before but thus far have been lacking. Reding was sidelined with a pulled groin muscle for a couple of days but is operating at full tilt now. The rest of the camp, except for injured Mike Garman, Is well. Cooper indicates he will go with the following starters Friday: Ends—Dick Muller and Jim Youngwirth. 'Tackles — Bob Schmitt and Jerry Plathe. Barbara Ann Wicks, daughter of the Orville Wicks, Algona ( tives here. She was godmother Craig Rule, of Clear Lake.
