inMUfflnn Howie's Record! 105 AROUND ALGONA • ^^ ^^ IsillfMMIIllfSOttffllfflffilffllBffllBlfflillfl^^ Wins To 45 Losses Mary Mitbach, Algona, Will WodlnJun* Algeria's Bulldogs took another giant step in a great basketball season Monday night at Spencer when the vaunted Stephenson press and stall offense paid off with a 73-67 victory over a rugged Mason city club in the finals of the Sub-State Tournament. The win, Algona's 21st in 23 outings this season, also shoved the club into the tough State Tournament field of eight at Des Moines sending the Bulldogs to the meet for the second time in three years. While Coach Howie Stephenson is an unassuming fellow - his career record here speaks for Itself. Monday's victory over the Mohawks upped Howie's record to an amazing 105 wins and only 45 losses in seven seasons at the helm - a 70 percent victory mark I Howie, shown in the accompanying photo, which was snapped the same day as the individual shots of the squad members that appeared in a special 12-page section in the UDM Tuesday, was in perfect agreement when It was suggested to him that this photo be used separately from the section, due to page alignment - so here it is I It might be titled "Portrait of a Winning Coach" - and rightly sol Now, let's take a look at the State Tournament field. First off, and most important to the Bulldogs, are the Ames little Cyclones, who bumped Ft.Dodge, 48-45, Monday night with a fourth quarter rally. Algoua was slated to meet Ames in the first round of the meet at 1:30 p. m. Thursday. Coach of the Ames club is George Duvall, former Algona high mentor whose assistant coach here was, you guessed it, Howie Stephenson. Ames has an 18-5 mark, with two of the losses coming at the hands of the no. 1 rated club in the state, Roosevelt of Des Moines, a team that went to the sidelines Monday night after winning the title last year. The second Ames loss to Roosevelt was by the narrowest of margins, 53-52, so the Little Cyclones DO have a good outfit. Against this fine array of competition, Coach Stephenson will pit Dale Teeter, who has scored 563 points this year for a 24.4 average and who holds the career mark of l,I62pointsj Dan Merryman, 257 points, U.7 average; Craig Espe, 257, U.2; Dave Walker, 206, 9j Tom Claude, 140, 8.9; Bill Boldridge, 51, 2.1; Steve Waller, 21, 1.7; Brocke Laws, 15, 1.1; Brad Kraft, 14, 1.1; Tom Jones, 7, 1.1; Bob Farnham, 5, 1; and Denny Breidert, 2, .3. Algona has out-scored all opposition, 1,542-1,266 , an average of 67-55 per game this year and the current crop of Bulldogs are the second highest in the school's history. Only the State Tournament team In 1964 has topped them. And Algona's secret weapons (although hardly a secret anymore) include the harrassing tactics of Espe, Claude and Boldridge, the unsung (at times) hustle and battle of Merryman and Walker and tlje all-around play of Teeter. Summing it all up - the Bulldogs are facing some mighty fine clubs at Des Moines, but all area fans know, all things being equal, that on a given night (or day) the locals are capable of thrashing anyone. If they play the games one at a time at Des Moines, hustle, shoot and scrap the way they have all season, the Bulldogs don't have to take a back seat to anyone. Go get 'em!

Most of us think of cooperatives as creameries, grain elevators, filling stations and other businesses serving the farmer. But many other types of businesses, some of which do not serve the farmer at all, are built on the cooperative idea. Many of the nation's prominent savings banks, mutual insurance companies, and savings and loan associations . . . whose business volume runs into billions of dollars each year . . . operate on many of the same basic principles that govern farmer cooperatives. The success of these respected institutions is more evidence that the cooperative idea can serve millions of people . . . not only farmers . . . faithfully and well.
