Two lettermen, Bill Obrecht, half-miler, and Mark Goetz, sprinter and quarter-miler, are expected to better their 1965 times - and some of the other returnees have already done as well in workouts as at the end of the season last spring.

April 14 - Triangular at Fort Dodge. April 17 - CYO at Sioux City. April 22 - Spencer Relays. April 30 - Bulldog Relays at AHS. May 3 - Bronco Relays at Belmond. May 3 - District Meet.

In the first game of the evening a postponed senior game was played with the tall Grant Hustlers team edging past a determined Swea-Harrison team on the last quarter by a score or 74 to 62. Tom Anderson and Ray Govern collected 22 and 19 points consecutively to lead the winners with Jeff Newlin and Randy Newlin bagging 20 and 19 points. The Junior championship was a hard fought contest with a very aggressive Fenton team putting up a terrific battle against the taller Whittemore team. Some sharp shooting by Fenton's Gary Laabs, who had 12 points, kept the game until the last quar- WESLEY - Martin Hamilton, Rollin Heard, Lou Simpson and John Youngwirth went to Corwith Wednesday evening and met with the Corwith Merchants club.

Jim Elbert shoved home 15 points to lead his team. A tired, but determined Grant senior team returned to the floor for their second game of the evening against the fast and deadly LuVerne Eager Beavers. A hard fought contest followed, but height won out as the Grant team continuously cleared both boards and stayed with the game long enough to win 77 to 57. Roger Hansen sharp shooted his way to 27 points with his soft push shot for the LuVerne team, while tall Tom Anderson and Jim Richardson were collecting 29 and 23 points respectively for the winner. We take our hats off to all of the Kossuth County 4-H'ers for the fine' job they did in showing good sportmanship throughout the tournament. -99- Henry Goettler, Maquoketa, celebrated his 99th birthday there earlier this month. 18 grandchildren were on hand to wish him a happy birthday.

Coach Don Camenisch, In his first season as head man here, has only three seniors among his 30 trackmen. Those three seniors are good ones. Dale Teeter, Dave Martin and Gary Barr are experienced and capable of fine performances in a variety of events. Bill Boldridge and Brocke Laws, juniors, are also expected to perform well this spring. However, the squad Includes a large group of freshmen with no previous varsity experience - and they are going to have to come of age quick. The weather hasn't helped matters any. After running around the gym and on city streets during early workouts, the thin- lies finally got outside for a jaunt on the track at the new athletic field. However, they had just one shoj: at the track as a blizzard covered it the following evening. As soon as conditions permit, workouts will proceed on the track. The team's first meet will be the Eagle Relays at Eagle Grove Friday, April 14. Then will come a trip to the Spencer Relays Whittemore 4-H Champs Fenton 4-H Ruhnerup •^^••w— •—••— • '™ IL •'"»' ^^WP» '•••'••^•••••••••i LuVerne 4-H Cagers Beautiful Easter We also have Mums, Azalea, Geranium, and Hydrangea.
