Exclusive Advance photo by Bruce Ritchie. A big, strong Garrigan high school basketball team is in prospect as Coach Steve McCall continues drilling his charges for .their season opener at Fort Dodge Tuesday night, Nov. 29. The Bears will sport their biggest team in their eight- year history and it's quite possible they'll have three 6'4" beys and a 6'3" lad in the game at one time. ; • Big losses for McCallfrom last year's team which finished with .are Joe Becker, 6' 8" senior, Don a 16-5 mark were guards Dick | Courtney, a 5'1Q" senior guard '"' Bleich and Bob Smith and center Don Potthoff. • BaclT"will be senior forwards Bill Reding ' and Dick Culler, both 6'4" giants and both two- year lettermen. Brian LaBarre figures to have the inside track at one guard post, he's a 5*11" senior, while 6'3" senior Jim Youngwirth is a good bet for the center post. , >' THE OTHER 6'4" boy is ;Jack Muller, a junior. Others who STEM JULIAN CHRISCHILLIS ' j •• -• ^ •lUalA m -- *'•• until qf torn Mnr IF MINNESOTA Viking Coach Norm Van Brocklin is looking for a "scrambling" quarterback to replace Fran ,Tarkenton a few years hence, Iowa's Ed Ppdolak might fill the bill . . . judging from what we saw Saturday in Iowa's 14-10 loss to Ohio State . . . Jie ran for some ot Iowa's biggest gains and the runs came after he was almost hopelessly trapped while attempting to pass. B'or instance, his crucial \ 20-yard jaunt with fourth and 15 late in the game in a passing situation was a beauty. Podolak is going to be a tine quarterback in his next two years at Iowa, boch as a passer and "a runner. • This was the first time we'd arrived at the stadium 40 minutes before game time . . . normally, we get to our seat just in time for the kickoff ... but bur, passengers in, eluding just sons Dave and Steve and guest Steve Sneakley and all three wanted to get there in plenty Ottimp to see , the pre-game workouts. Luckily the weatherman cooperated with a sunny day although the temperatures were on the chilly side of 40. . Certainly, Ray Nagel has done a superb job of coaching in his first year at Iowa with the skimpy material he inherited. We fee^l the biggest tribute to his coaching is that ; ;lowa has gotten better week by week despite some discburag- , ing defeats . .. they never lacked desire or spirit and this is in marked contrast to last year's team, which had some-seven players who went on to pro trybuts. but got worse by the week last season. We'll predict Nagel will have Iowa back to football respectability in another season or two. The trip to Iowa City is almost a breeze now compared to a few years ago. . . you can navigate the 239 miles in less than four hours without ever breaking a speed law and from Ogden all the way to Iowa City, with the exception of a four-mile stretch, you are on four-lane highways. SMALL WORLD DEPARTMENT — A stop for gas at the Hallebrink Phillips 66 station at Grinnell started out the "small world" happenings. The owner asked where we were from when pumping,jjas and when we told him he remarked that he had watched Tom Waller play every game this season since his nephew, Roger Sparks, played for Drake also ... he farms near the station and after finishing picking corn at 7 p.m. two weeks ago Thursday, he and friends left for the Quantico Marine-Drake game on the East Coast BY CAR, A real fan, we'd say! And before the day was over, we bumped into the Harold Clark family in downtown Iowa City and Mr. and Mrs. Julie Baas and ex-Algonan Gordon Hall outside the stadium. The latter wanted to be remembered to his many friends here (he's now located at Coralville, just outside Iowa City). THREE NORTH CENTRAL conference football coaches gave Algona high school's grid team a fine tribute at the recent coaches' meeting , . . coaches from Hampton, Iowa Falls and Humboldt said their kids told them Algona players hit harder than any other team they played this season I * * if LONE ROCK'S Mark Geitzenauer had a fine season in football at Fort Dodge Community College ... he was tied for sixth in the Tri-State Junior College Conference in scoring with 6 touchdowns and 36 points ... he scored four of them two weeks ago jn a Fort Dodge win. Mark played his high school football at Sentral. GARRIGAN ended up in the Top 20 of both Iowa polls last week . . . the Bears were ranked 17th in the Des Moines last week ... the Bears were ranked '7th in the Des Moines Register and 20th in the UP1 poll. Twin Rivers was ranked 5th in the small school poll by the Register while Buffalo (Center was 17th. • PRAIRIE- VIEW of Cowrie, beaten 25-7 by Garrigan two weeks ago, ended its season by trouncing Coon Rapids, 01-0. should add Strength "to the cluib and Mike Nitchals, a 5'10" senior. . •' i .• -• ••...•,•' '. ; So except for one boy, the junior Muller j McCall is planning on a senior club. However, there are some younger lads who could move into the picture as 'the season moves on. "Finding a pair of guards is our biggest obstacle," McCall reports. The Bears have a 16-game schedule plus a big Clinic here Dec. 28th. It will be known as the first annual Algona Holiday coaching Clinic and will find Algona high school meeting Jefferson and Garrigan facing Hull, Western Christian. , The Bears also will par&dpate in a clinic at Spencer, Dec. 3 and •-ALOONA tl*wa) ADVANCI THURSDAY, NOV. 17, Bulldogs open with Swea City Friday A couple of old basketball rivals, Swea City and Algona high schools, get together for their only regular season cage.: contest Friday night to kickoff the season for both clubs.

Tuesday. Algona Will have lots of speed b;,t lack heighth with only belts and Jones passing the 6* mark. , Swea City lost almost its entire team from last year and the Trojans had a good club a year ago. Algona beat them in their opener at Swea City last season but the Trojans improved immensely after that. ..• . • '-.. * .'.* ». '•' • '. ' North Central Conference coaches are tabbing defending champion Clear Lake as the team to beat in the loop this winter with Algona and Hampton picked as the chief challengers, and Hampton as the dark horse.' The Lions edged Algona in the final standings by a game with a big-win at Clear Lake late in the !>eason. They have four lettermen; back; including Ken Grabinski (6'5" junior), Jim Elting (6'3%.senior) and some other 6'2" and 6'5" giants. So the Lions will be big and rugged again this year. Humboldt has four lettermen back and should be rugged.
