Kern, 21 of Algo- nt, became the first Kossuth county serviceman to die in Viet Nam, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Kern were inform* ed early Sunday. Lt. Col. Ellsworth Nelson of Humboldt, a National Guard officer representing the Department of Defense, came to the Kern home early Sunday and informed them of their son's death. William had Just returned to action a few weeks before his death after being hit by a sniper's bullet in April. He was hospitalized and recuperated for about three months and his parents believe he returned to action sometime late in August. I ' THE MESSAGE informing (hem of; his death stated only that he had been "killed in combat with small arms weapon." William was a specialist fourth in the 2nd Brigade Task Force and the group had. been operating north of Saigon. However, where his death occurred was not specified in the message. ; The death'notice indicated that the casualty occurred si- bout 1:30 a.m. on Friday. His unit was normally on night patrol duty. >w He was bom April 26, 1945 in Algona and graduated from the Algona high school in 1964. He entered service Sept. 15, 1965 and had been overseas since January of this year. He was wounded in action last April and after hospitalization, had a reunion with a brother, Kenneth, who is also in the army and was stationed in Thailand.

Steal two cars in spree over weekend SANTA GETS NEW SUIT Algona's "Santa Claus" will get a new suit with proceeds from the Salesman's Bureau of the Algona Chamber of Commerce Pancake Day, Saturday Oct. 22. Two Minnesota juveniles who- stole two cars in Kossuth county over the weekend were apprehended near Storm Lake early Sunday and were returned to Minnesota when their parents picked them up later that day. Their case wilt be turned over to Mankato, Minn, juvenile authorities for action. The boys, ages 14 and 15, stole a 1965 Chevrolet station wagon with Tennessee license plates at Garden City, Minn, on highway 169 sometime Friday night. The boys' lived at Lake Crystal, a nearby town! They apparently drove into Iowa that night and abandoned the car in front of the post office at Titonka and stole another 1965 Chevrolet, this one ownec by the Universal Control Co. of Dallas, Texas, which had Texas license plates. This car was taken between 8:30 and 9 Satur day morning from a Titonka street. THE SHERIFF'S office here was alerted to the possible sto] en cars shortly after 8 a.m. when Kenneth Studer, who farms foiu Youngwirth. VyVWWWWVWVVbVAVAWUVW^ Expect 4,000 for showdown battle between Kuemper and Garrigan miles south of Lakota, called tc ell the sheriff's office that two oung boys had stopped at his arm and asked for gas. He told authorities that he bought the car they were driv- ng had ''Maryland" license plates but it was later found hat the confusion arose because he state of Tennessee prints the name of the county at the bot- om of the plate and the car was from Maryland County in Tennessee. Shortly after, Titonka marshal John Tjarks called to report the Texas car abandoned in front of the Titonka post office and the theft of the Texas car. Deputy sheriff Wood drove to Titonka to investigate. ABOUT 11 P.M, Saturday, patrolman Charles Bird spotted the Texas car parked in between the old ice cream plant and the Universal building on Diagonal St. in Algona. Apparently, the two youths had abandoned the Titonka car with Texas plates sometime dur- (Continued on Page 6) . The most important football game in Garrigan high school History will enfold at the Bear field Saturday night as the Golden Bears put their unbeaten 5- game winning streak on the line against a powerful Carroll Kuemper team in the "Game of the Year" for Algona football fans. To the winner will probably go a spot on the "Top Ten" football teams in the state. An expected 4,000 £an§ and probably more will be oii hand to watch the meeting of two of the finest ains in ms part of the state. There is little to choose- be- tween the two clubs. Garrigan will try nothing new but will shoot the works for sure. On their side will be 6'4" BUI Reding, touted as one of the state's best quarterbacks. He's passed for 11 touchdowns and run for another six plus kicking, passing and rushing for 15 PAT's. Undoubtedly, this will be his severest test. Alongside he'll have the Muller boys, 6'4" junior Jack, 200 pounds of fullback dynamite who has charged for an average of 6.2 yards per carry in 105 tries. And ait offensive end and defensive tackle will be brother Dick, also 6'4" who cur •ently has an average of 11 tactics per game and who is the bulwark of a rugged Bear line, which also includes tackle Bob Schmitt and Dave McCarthy. The Bear starters have not given up a touchdown on the ground this year and only one through the air. Reding will have as receivers Dick Muller, the talented Jim Youngwirth and sophomore Tom Black. On the other side of the ledger will be a rugged Kuemper team which has met much tough- er opposition and has come thro ugh with a 3-win, 1-loss and 1- tie record. They had North Des Moines down 14-0 in the final quarter last week before settling for a 14-14 tie. They beat Sioux City Heelau 27-19 this year for then- fii-st win over a Sioux City school in twelve years. They dumped Dowling of Des Moines 42-21 when Bowling was ranked as Iowa's 7th best team. They crushed Fort Dodge 52-7 and lost only their opener to Sioux City East, 30-26. Kuemper is almost exclusive- ly a running team. They passed just twice against North last week and both times the throws' were intercepted. One killed a promising Kuemper drive and the other steal set up a North touchdown. They have a fine junior quarterback in Darrell Stalzer, a 150- pounder. Their fullback is 6'3" Larry Pirott, a bruising 195- pounder who will be every bit as tough as Algona's Muller, according to scouts. They've got a kid they call the "animal" and .although Dan Hausman is not big, he's a 155- pound junior, he's probably the )est middle linebacker Garrigan will face all season. If there is a Garrigan advantage it is that the Bears have pointed to this game all season. This can sometimes work ill reverse when a team is too higlily keyed but it also can be a big advantage. This is "the" game for Coach Beanie Cooper's club — their chance to break into Iowa's elite circle of teams. For Kuempei', and this may sound somewhat oversimplified, it is just another game. Every week is a big one for this club j^^j\f^j^\f\/]j^^ and a look at their schedule — Sioux City East and Heelan, Dowling (they were sky high for this one), North Des Moines and Fort Dodge — and you can see why. But reports from Carroll indicate this dub is made up of a bunch of German farm boys who like to play rough and tough foo^ ball. They dont get overly ej|- oited about any individual game but are a worthy fpe for ajjy club. Game time is 8 p.m. If you. want a seat in the bleacheri qn either side, better show U$*MM round 7:15 p.m, or so. v «*
