state HietopiecLL- Society Ibva City, Iowa Great thrill to play on National Championship team says Scil AT w . - ' .;••• . . ' ' :•.•:;,.'.;' • .... • ,.-... • ^ . By Julian Chrischille* Mow does it feel to play on a national championship football team? "Just great," says Algona's Paul Seller, first string offensive left tackle for the No. 1 team in the nation, Notr.e Dame. Paul was reached by telephone at his Notre Dame dormitory Tuesday morning by this writer and talked freely about himself and the fine football team of which he has been a part for the past four years. Paul, the son of Mrs. Elizabeth Seiler of rural Algona (his father was killed in an accident in 1956), played very little until this year, when he nailed down the starting berth in the Irish line. "1 started every game this year and I think 1 had more time on offense than any other . player," he told this writer over the telephone. He had no serious injuries during the entire sea* son, WHAT WAS the feeling of the Notre Dame team after it played to a 10-10 tie with Michigan State two weeks ago in a game billed as the grid battle of the century? •••': , "tye were relieved and do* pre«»«d," he reported. "Th« pressure before' the ginit wfi terrific, Wo knew wt were playing for »h» national championship and every player wit very nervous' when the game started." Seiler said the team game films the following Sun* day night and he said it was easy to see the many mistakes made by players because of the nervousness. The same could be said for Michigan State, I'm sure. "But there was also depression that we _did";hbt win. The national chantpionship had been /our gofclailf? Season since we ' aren't allotted to play in any bowls," Seil^said. tM6 TtAM ! went into the Southernr California game determined to put bn a good show, which they did;in the 51-0 route last ^atiiirdax I which certainly must Have earned the Irish the national crownl "After bur opening drive of 80 yards for a •. tbuchdown, everything went right for us," he reported. "We weren't trying to run up the score but we wanted to play as well as possible." Paul was elated when he cat' led his mother from California after* the game, although he has called her after every Notre Dame game this season. "Me was sure happy," -Mrs. Seiler said Monday night. Paul said il hat been a tough struggle to keep up with school work during the season, "I'm patting everything but it's been tough," he said, There are 25 dorhiitoriet at Notre Dame and football player* are tcattered 'around and do not live-all together. Those with the top grade averages get their choice of rooms. Players also eat with the rest of the student body except at the training table each eve* ning after practices. WAS HE discouraged during his first three years at Notre Dame when he played just a few minutes of varsity ball? "Yet, I guett I wet at timet," he taid. "I tometlmet withed I had gone to a tmaller place where I could have played more but this year wet worth all the work." Since football, in Belief's words, is not pushed as sUch at Notre Oafrte, the end of the sea* son means-the end of football. "We'll have a football banquet sometime before Christmas arid the Associated Press and United Press Intel-national awards will be given but that is about it," hd reported. Paul said his plans after grad* uation next spring are indefin* ite. "I'd like to play pro football, I think, but it looks like the service might get me before that comes." "He'll be home for Christmas vacation on or about Dec. 16. rv?

DIVORCE GRANTED Garrigan high school outscored Fort Dodge high school 70-56 from the field but v/ere creamed on free throws, 24-4 as the Bears lost their. season opener to the highly regarded Dodgers, 82-74'in -the Fort Dodge high school gym before a huge crowd Tuesday night. The Bears move back into action this weekend with their first .home game against St. John's of Bancroft here Friday. A reserve game will start the evening off, The Bears then participate in the Northwest Iowa Coaches Clinic at Spencer Saturday night, meeting Spencer at 8:30 p.m. in the last of three games that evening. South Clay will face Hartley in a girls game at 6 p.m. and Pocahontas meets Emmetsburg Catholic at 7:15 p.m. in the ond game of the night. THIS WAS a weird game in which Garrigan had six more field, goals but lost by eigh points. "Fort Dodge hit 24 oi 34 free throw attempts while Garrigan meshed just four of 13. Garrigan didn't make a free throw until there was only one minute left in the third period. In the first half, the Bears had only three .free throw attempts and missed them all. It was the general opinion that most of the Garrigan fouls were legitimate but that the 'our early fouls and sat out the ast minutes of the first half. He picked up his fifth infraction shortly after Coach Steve McCall put him back in during the third quarter. Jim Youngwirth went to the bench with five fouls early in the fourth quarter and big Dick Mul ler, who banged home nine fiek goals, was waved out with abou three minutes to go. Thus the Bears played the stretch witl three starters out and all were the big rebound.ers. GARRIGAN took an early 14-7 lead but Fort Dodge went in front 19-16 at the quarter and led the rest of the way. The Dodgers went in front 37-32 at the half and 63-5r alter three periods. Garrigan put on a torrid Hurry in the fourth quarter. Two brilliant steals and layups by Brian LaBarre closed the margin to 74-71 but the Bears never got any closer. Coach Steve McCall was not overly disappointed in his team's loss although he's not exactly jolty whenever his club goes down. "We were impressive at times," he said after the game. "We made a lot of defensive mistakes but considering it was our opener, we weren't too bad." Dodgers were 47 per cent on 29 of 62. Jerry Spittal paced the winners with 27 points and all five tarters were in the double figures for Coach "Dutch" Huse man's club. They have now won both of their starts, beating Boone last week in their opener THE GARRIGAN reserves los the opener, 72-62 after leading at the half, 31-30.
