on smith PROFESSIONAL boxing higher ops wrote a pretty good script for that hard-to-locate Casslus Clay- George Chuvalo heavy weight title fight at Toronto last Tuesday night. With the sport on the ropes during recent years due to lack of quality fighters and underworld undertones, it seemed a good idea to keep Chuvalo on his feet all the way 'through the 15- rounder, despite the fact no one had ever heard of him until he signed to fight Clay. .Chuvalo was a 7-1 underdog - and Clay easily defeated him without knocking him off his feet - -but we don't think too many persons are convinced of the performance, or much Interested whether pro boxing remains on the scene or not. It seems to be controlled more by questionable characters than any other sport. LUK3 Linnan, well-known Algona attorney, and his wife went to the west coast recently to attend a meeting of barristers and while there, Luke got a chance to see the Angels meet the Cubs in an exhibition baseball game. The Angels posted a 3-2 decision in a contest that didn't prove too thrilling - except for the activity of fans at the game who rode Cub manager, Leo Durocher, through the full nine innings. MAYOR Bill Finn and his wife, Nelda, were in the same boat with many other persons here during the recent blizzard -without power and heat.' Bill and Nelda, realizing it was going to get cold at home, donned long underwear in their battle to stay warm. Then, Bill got an idea that seemed pretty good. They would go to his bakery where there was heat and stay all day. It worked fine, except the longies proved to be a little too much - so they returned to their cool home. THAT fellow in Michigan who has already seen a' flying saucer and plans to take a shot at the next one with his 30-06 rifle better not stretch his luck. The saucers reported so far have all been friendly - but IF there are fellows inside, the Michigan man might wind up greeted by a Zap or Pow or something from a ray gun. Besides, maybe the persons inside are nicer than many here on earth - we certainly hope so. Haven't heard of any wars in space lately I ALGONA high's trip to the State Basketball Tournament at Des Moines gave the local school quite a record through the three major sport seasons of the current' school year. Coach Howie Stephenson's cagers wound up with a 21-3 record, Champ Martin and his quartet of wrwtlers, state champs Larry jMunger, Dave Martin, and TomFitzpatrick, and Tom Samp, who grabbed a second, copped the Class A wrestling tournament, giving the Bulldogs their first state crown, and Coach Jim Hershberger's football team won its first six frays and wound up with a 6-2 season mark. Probably the most impressive year in sports the Bulldogs have ever posted. IF early reports are true, the long hair (Beatle) look featured by many little boys and teenagers Is on the way out - and probably bangs, too. It certainly would be nice to have the boys look masculine, like astronauts or big time athletes, as they did inpre- Beatle days. And it would also be very much appreciated if the girls who insist on boyish hair- does would go back to a feminine look again, especially now that fashion has gone. so far in that direction. We'll hold our breath on the disappearance of the Beatle trend, however, and hope the next one isn't the Dirksen (Senator Everett of Illinois) haircut. It's also rumored that his barber has been drummed out of the union. - ?BILL Conn, president of the Security State Bank here became a full service banker about 12:45 p. m. March 30 when the engine of an auto parked next to the bank caught fire. Bill dashed to the scene and somehow extinguished the flames before local firemen, who got there pretty fast could get a chance at the conflagration I Now, that's service. THE hassle between the Los Angeles Dodgers and ace chuckers Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale (which has been settled) has developed into a dandy. The pair, it seems, want a million dollars between them for the next three seasons, giving each $166,666per season. Even though they're great, it's doubtful if any baseball player is worth that much, especially a hurler, who can take the hill no more than once every four days. However, there are at least two sides to every argument, and there's no doubt the Dodgers would not lose any money on Sandy and Don, even at those prices. Koufax should at least .deduct the price of the ice used on his arm after each game from his asking price. - ?Joe: "Did you hear about the tongue-tied rabbit who went to the dentist to get his tooth extracted f Moe: "No." Joe : "The dentist asked him if he wanted gas, and the rabbit said, 'No, I'm an ether bunny." Good Turn Day Slated Here By Boy Scouts Cub and Boy Scouts of the Prairie Gold Area Council are currently making plans to conduct their annual "Good Turn Day for the Handicapped" clothing drive. This nation- wide program by the Scouts is another of the "Good Turn" events which highlight scouting activities in Algona. This drive is not just a drive for an organization's profitable gain, but is a means of income for 140 handicapped workers who are self-supporting instead of state supported. These workers are taxpayers, not tax burdens. Scouts have given time and effort in order to help these less for-* tunate people. This is a voluntary project which the Prairie Gold Council has agreed to be a part of and they need the support jf the citizens of the council area to make this drive another success. April 16, Cub Scouts, under the leadership of Cubmasters Ed Slndelar and Rev. Merlin Davles and the den mothers, will distribute a scout "Good Turn Day Bag" to all homes in Algona. These bags should be filled with wearable and repairable clothing and materials and small household appliances, which the handicapped men and women can process for resale in their retail stores and provide their weekly wages. Then April 23, the Boy Scouts, with Scoutmasters Richard Beisell and Robert Snedden in charge, will return to the homes to collect the filled bags for delivery to Goodwill Industries in Sioux City.
