Pictured on the back of a cookbook called "Cooking With Love & Paprika" is the Hollywood producer & amateur cook Joe Pasternak, with Zsa Zsa Ga bor & Elke Sommer, no less, torturing a grill of hamburgers. I'll bet those aren't 15c hamburgers, either. Some lotharios load the ladies' drinks; some lure 'em with etchings; some use hamburgers! Or love with paprika. To a recent party a DM sportsman brought a basket of fresh live trout & tossed 'em into his host's swimming pool. Then he amused himself by casting for the eager trout. "Is this an original idea?"

The defeat marred the coaching debut of Keith Christie and was the first Bulldog loss to the E-Iiawks since 1959. Since then, Algona had won five and tied the other. And if you read the statistics above, you'd assume Algona might have won this one. They got more first downs, over twice as much yardage but they didn't have a punter the likes of Emmetsburg's Teci Ellis. Not that Bob Farnham did such a bad job in punting but Ellis certainly put on a toe exhibition that will rank with any seen in this area for many years. He averaged just about 50 yards a boot and kept Algona deep — and we mean deep — in its own territory all night long. In fact, the deepest penetration Algona, ma.de Ml the en-, tire game was on the first sequence of plays to the E-Hawk 40-yard line.

With complete disregard tor his personal safety, he repeatedly exposed himself to intense hostile fire in order to place highly effective fire upon insurgent positions. "During the entire engagement, the only concern of this outstanding soldier was tor the successful completion of his mission. The rapidity and aggressiveness with which he followed the orders of his superiors were in large measure responsible for his company's achievement.

Rated No. 2 ;<i the Northwest by a Sioux City paper, Estherville never had a chance as 205-pound fullback Jack Muller and quarterback Bill Reding riddled the Midget defenses on the ground and in the air. Burglary at Buffalo Center apparently solved A burglary of a Buffalo Cen ter TV and Appliance Store about three weeks ago was apparently solved last week when an unidentified man was taken into custody while he allegedly was attempting to rob a store in LeCenter, Minn.

Date Farm Bureau dinner Sept. 22 Coach Beanie Cooper's war- •iors, only 18 strong but with a spirit de corps that has been acking at times at Garrigan, *ave evidence that this could be a really exciting grid season for Bear fans. THE BEARS scored twice before Estherville hit the scoreboard, led 19-7 at the half and dominated last half play before the visitors got a consolation touchdown in the final minutes. Roger Guge, Estheryille's bril- liaRt..20^po^nd.,rurijier, was all he was : ' cracked''up to be but there was only one, of him and 11 Bears. The Cbopermeri de- fensed Guge well, held him to minimum yardage and in fact, let Estherville looso just a couple of times — the fi^st on a 95- yard kick-off return after the second Garrigan touchdown and again in the dying moments of the game on desperation passes. Garrigan scored the first time it got its hands on the ball, marching the opening kick-off back for 65 yards in 9 plays. Workhorse of the drive was Jack Muller but three Reding passes eased the load. REDING hit Gone Licktcig on a short pass, then connected with Jim Youngwirth and finally found Lickteig again on a short flare pass for the touchdown from 15 yards out. Reding's try for point was wide and with just four minutes gone, the Bears led 6-0. They got another late in the first quarter on another 65 yard march after Kevin O'Brien alert-. ;y covered a Midget fumble, Again it was Reding throwing and running the option and Muller bulling off tackles as Garrigan scored in 10 plays. Reding got the TD on the option play from three yards out but his try for point was blocked. THEN ESTHERVILLE struck as Hood caught the kick-off on his 5-yard line and raced 95 yards straight up the field past the bewildered Bears. The kick for point was good and the game stood 12-7. A Bear touchdown was called back on a penalty but shortly after Muller hit pay dirt after a (continued on page 5) Burt Funeral services for Mrs. J. E.
