8-Alflona (la.) Upptr D*i Moln*i Thursday, March 24, 1966 Mrs. Anderson Is Named So. Kossuth Cancer Head Mrs. Lyle R. (Bud) Anderson has been named as cancer crusade Chairman for South Kossuth county. Mrs. Anderson was born and raised in Kossuth county, and is a member of the Methodist church of Algona. She is also a member of the American Legion Auxiliary and XI XI Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi sorority. A meeting of the board of the South Kossuth chapter of the American Cancer Society will be held March 28 at 10:30 a. m. in the Algonquin Room of the Colonial Motel. The kick-off meeting will be held at 2 p. m. on the same day at the same place. Kits will then be given to chairmen and volunteer workers for the crusade, which will start in the county April 1 and continue throughout the month. Frances Anderson of Estherville, field representative, will attend both meetings. Mrs. Theodore Hoover, jr., Titonka, is chapter chairman. The question has been posed many times as to why the American cancer Society is not in the United Fund Campaign. The society has explained the reasons by saying that the American Cancer Society is a national organization, composed of volunteers and staff from every section of the country, it is a temporary organization, dedicated to one basic purpose; To conquer cancer and then go out of business. And it is an emergency organization, seeking simply to obtain enough dollars to wage an unrelenting fight to help save the millions who will otherwise die of cancer. The door-to-door cancer Crusade in April each year is the focus of this Intensive and extensive educational effort. Over 2 million volunteers will participate in the crusade. The American Cancer Society last year spent $12 million on cancer research alone. Town chairmen include Mrs. Bryan Stewart of LuVerne, Mrs. Stanley Harris of Titonka, Mrs. J. T. Meurer of Wesley, Mrs. Dan Foley of Whittemore, Mrs. A. J. Grandgenett of St. Benedict, Mrs. Ken Roney of Irv- irigton.

McFadden, Stewart A., sgl to Bulldogs Finish With Five Men Averaging 8.8 - 24.7 Five regulars averaged from 8.8 to Z4.7 points per game during the recent Algona high school basketball season, which ended with a first round loss to Ames In the State Tournament last Thursday. Statistics for the season, which saw the locals win 21 and lose only three, for a .875 percentage of wins, list Dale Teeter, the all-time scoring leader here, Dan Mer ryman, Craig E spe, Dave Walker and Tom Claude In that order of scoring. Teeter's record single season total of 592 points Included 212 field goals and 168 of 213 free throws. Merryman averaged 11.3, with 261 points on 105 fielders and 51 of 74 free tosses; Espe, 261 points for a 10.8aver- age on 84 field goals and 93 of 114 free throws; Walker, 8.8 average on 74 field goals and 65 of 98 free throws; and Claude, 8.8 average on 55 field goals and 39 of 59 free throws. Bill Boldrldge was next In line with 51 points, 2.2 average; then came Steve Waller, 21,1.7; Brocke Laws, 15, 1.1; Brad Kraft, 14,1.1; Tom Jones, seven, 1; Bob Farnham, five, 1; Gary Barr, four, 1; and Denny Breidert, two, .3. Teeter, Merryman, Walker, Kraft, Barr and Breldert will graduate this spring. Teeter's career mark (for three seasons) ended at 1,191 and a breakdown is interesting. He played in 17 games as a sophomore (the Bulldogs took third in the State Tourney that year), hit 128 points for a 7.5 average and got into double figures the first time with 10 against Clear Lake in a 59-51 win, three games from the end of the regular season. He had games of 14, 19, 15, 17 and 11 in the District and Sub-state meets and led the club in scoring only once that season, the night he hit 19. As a junior, he canned 471 points for a 21.4 average and led the team in scoring no less than 18 nights. His top night was 30 and nine was his low during the 22-game season, This year, he led the team in scoring 23 of 24 games. His accomplishments Included a 45- point game that tied the single game mark - and only once was he under 10. That night he got nine and was selected as the state's Prep of the Week. Dale was in double figures in scoring 50 times in 63 games (he was a reserve throughout his sophomore year), was between 10 and 20 points 19 times, between 20 and 30, 25 times, between 30 and 40, five times, and over 40 once, DIANNA Pederson, who attends business college at Mankato, Minn, spent the weekend with her parents, Mr, and Mrs. Alvin Pederson, And his career average (for three years) - 18.9 points per game may never be bettered here! He also was a top ball handler, dribbler and rebounder for the Bulldogs, all departments of the game which must give him the title of greatest in history at AHS. In 24 games this season, Algona hit 573 field goals, 449 of 630 free throws, committed 402 fouls and scored 1,595 points for a 66.4 average per game, second highest in the school's history. Meanwhile, the opposition counted 496 field goals, 337 of 541 free throws, committed 433 fouls and scored 1,331 points for a 55.4 average. Merryman, who on a Teeter- less team would have won the true credit due him, wound up with 511 career points, and Walker counted 264 (and was another who held down his end of the Job very capably) during his two seasons. Espe will enter his final year this fall with 332 points, Claude has 196 and Boldrldge 51. And the Bulldogs of Coach Howie Stephenson will probably show area fans plenty in the way of speed, with no less than five guards expected to be on his 12-man squad. And all five can move. Algona also had winning streaks of 11 and eight games during the recent season. Besides the loss to Ames, other reversals were to Eagle Grove and Clear Lake in loop action. U-Go-l-Go Marcy Diamond was hostess at her home to the regular March meeting of the U-Go-I-Go 4-H club. Co-hostess was Linda Hauser. The 4-H pledge was led by Bernadette Reilly.
