Teeter To Enroll At Drake University Algona Athlete Gets Cage Scholarship Not many high school athletes need secretarial help lor handling fan mail from interested colleges and unive rsitie s. Howeve r, when AJgona high All-Stater Dale Teeter began to get mounds of inquiries about his basketball ability, he got able assistance from Coach Howie Stephenson. After months of thought and discussion, Dale signed a tender last week with Drake University in Des Moines. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Martin Potratz, Whittemore, helped to make the decision after considering such schools as the Air Force Academy, Minnesota, Oregon State, State College of Iowa, Morningside, Wartburg, Dubuque and many, many others. Dale told the Upper Des Moines that it was a very difficult decision to make, but that he and his family are happy with the choice. Drake is giving Dale a full scholarship covering tuition, room and board, books and minimal expenses. At the University Dale will be participating in what many consider to be the -toughest basketball conference in America - the Missouri Valley. Drake is undoubtedly pleased with Dale's acceptance. While at Algona high, he played on two state tournament teams, and set a career total point record. During his senior year, Dale was named as the Register's "Prep of the'Week", won a berth on Brad Wilson's first team All-State squad, and the I. D. P. A. second All-State team. When asked to what he attributed his success on the basketball court, Dale credited fine coaching, family encouragement and good facilities. The Whittemore youth spends a great deal of his time on the basketball court at the Milton Espe home., on his own court and in the grade school gym at St. Paul's. Dale has not limited his athletic ability to basketball. He was a football end, baseball shortstop and will be running the 880 yard dash in the state track meet next weekend. Just two weeks ago, the 6'-3 1/2" athlete set a school record in that event. Dale, a bright and personable young man, will have a large cheering section backing his future at Drake. We join with his family, friends and residents of Whittemore and Algona in wishing him the best of luck!
