He got in long enough to hit eight more and finished with '' Trap beaver A 54-POUND BEAVER shown above was trapped within the city limits at 5 a.m. Friday by Dick Crail, spot welder, and Garold Hough, brakeman. The two licensed trappers used a rope and lots of muscle to catch the animal. '• , A spotty junior year, he,' has developed into the brightest of lots of shiny Bear lights. He hit 13 of 17 shots and was the only Bear to shoot better than 50%. He was hear the 85% figure. , . , Becker ended with 23 points including 11 of 24 from the field. -Center- John Perkins paced the Gael' attack with 23 points but, he was overshadowed most of the Anight by, 1 the burly Bears. .Bill Reding, the playmaker Twin Rivers; girls bow and the; guy .who makes the-offense "go", hit 16, and potteid he has developed into the bright 50% of; 16 shots from the field Dick Muller ended with 13. .Garrigan controlled the boards,'; pulling down 48 re- bo'und to only 38 for the Gaels Becker and LaBarre applied the defensiye pressure that force< countless St. Ed mistakes am n^any were converted to two points on easy layups. , FOR the game/ Garrigan "hit 46% on' 40 of 87 tries while the Gaels got off just 53 shots and hit 21 for 40%, t ' -It should be noted that all but t||o of LaBarre's 13 baskets were from at least 20 feet or niom out. ' ' , ?vCoach Steve McCall used his four substitutes most of the £in- al quarter after a 67-41 third period margin. The Bears have now averaged 84 points per game in five contests for a fantastic show. THE GARRIGAN Junior Var sity also won the opener, 64-47 as the Bear yearlings continue to improve. Mick Fickbohm poured in 24 points, mostly from long range, to pace" the win. Garrigan,led at the half, 31-19. ' Wrestlers bow to Fort Dodge Friday, 24-18 The powerful Fort Dodge wrestling team exhibited their strength here Friday night, and sent jthe Bulldog grapplers down to their second defeat of the season, 24-18. The Dodgers jumped to a; 16-3 lead, with Denny Peterson scoring the only points for Algona up,/to the 133-pound class. There Don Caimp posted a 4-2 decision for the locals, anc this was followed in, succession wuth wins by Randy Riedinger Clint Young, Bruce Bennett, apd Dennis Miller, all by decision. 1 LuVerne—The LuVerne boys, rapidly going into high - gear, omped to another cage victory Tuesday night of last week here s they drubbed Twin Riyers, 93-71.

Algona has a non-loop affair against a weak Emmetsburg crew here Wednesday night. The Bulldogs literally blew the! Lions off their home court after a shaky start Tom Claude and \ Craig Espe played brilliantly and \ scored 42 of Algona's 80 points from their guard posts. They harassed and pestered the big home club unmercifully along with some valuable help rom their teammates. This Bull- og crew is probably the most hustling ballclub 'ever seen on he Bulldog court. ^ /•' At times, Clear Lake probably bought Algona had seven or eight men on the court. The Bull; dogs were everywhere at once, stealing passes, bangirig in lay- ups, and actually out-rebounding the Lions, despite giving away as much as four inches per man. • Clear Lake jumped off to leads of 8-4 and 10-6 before Al- Claude 9 ESpe -__- .ll^L.^-'.

Coach Howie Stephenson began putting in his reserves. shortly after, • Espe finished with 22 points and left the crowd breathless with seme outstanding offensive and defensive maneuvers. He simply never has been better and we've said that many times before. Claude pumped in 20 points and keeps improving with age These two young lads left little doubt that they are far and a way the two finest guards in the North Central Conference anc you can probably stretch out far ther without much argument. BOLDRIDGE had a terrific night, hitting 10 points and pick ing up lots of loose balls. Betts also had his best night of the season with 15 points. In fact, you could say that just about every Bulldog. turned in 100%; on this one, ' A freak accident put starter Brocke Lews on the sidelines for most of the contest, The teem was watching a junior high wrestling meet in the Algona gym prior to leaving and ju»t a* they got up to depart, Laws ran a five-inch sliver in his thigh as he slid off the seat. Five stitches were needed to extract the sliver and he played just a few minutes of the game.
