§Y JULIAN CHftlSCHIUII tartly Algona, Garrigan to ' ^1^ ^ BT ,' ' ^^ WHEN I CALLED ex-Algona Coach Bob King Sunday to congratulate him on his tremendous victory over last year s national champions 1 , Texas Western 71-62 Friday night, 1 didn't know that his club had dropped a 62-61 decision to New Mexico State the following night oh their way home to Albuquerque . . . he added a lew details to the Associated Press story that broke in the DM Register Monday. "We were homered something awful," he reported, but we added that this probably wasn t tne first time tins had happened in his 19 years of coaching and of course, he agreed. , "We had the ball in our back court with three seconds to go. Our boy dribbled all the way across the court and started down court with the ball Wnen he Was caaeu With otlensive charging,'" he told us. The Scoreboard Clock had broken uown earlier and the time was being Kept at tne scorers bench. ; > "The game was definitely over when the foul was cal- . led. The reierees didn't know and went to the scorers table. It ended up alter a ten-minute rnubarb that tne isew Mexico State team scorer maue the decision to give the "one- and-one'." i Asked what he told the officials and the scorer's bench) King merely replied: '1 told them about everything l coum UimK ot." it was i\ew Mexico s first defeat, iney played iNorth Dakota at Albuquerque Monday nignt and then piayed; Creighton at Omaha Wednesday evening. The defeat probably cost the Lobos a second or third national ranjung bemnd UULA.' ,N T ' The school built .a new field house seven years ago shortly before King's arrival, with a seating capacity ot.7,0uu. This year, they are playing in still another new -held house which seats lo.OOO. "We've averaged 12,000 tans per game .for 'our first four home games and none of them have oeen really attractive contests. The best was Texas Tech and we drew 14,000 for that one." - ( ' . ' *" One of the reserves on the club is Ron Sanford, an East Coast Negro, who did well at Fort Dodge Junior College last year. The iNM center, Mel Daniels, is rantteu as the country's No. 2 center. > A saddening note to local friends is that Bob's wife, i Darlene, has been in very poor health the past several years and has been hospitalized tor six of the past nine weeks with diabetes complications. She recently fell and broKe tour bones in her foot. THE SUBJECT of Cable TV was a hot one around here a few months ago but it has cooled consideraoiy m recent weeks except maybe tdr the many folks that are disgusted with the generally poor TV reception here . •. . but it came up the otner ragnt again at the Algona city council meeting wnen councilman Jim Andreasen asked wnether City Attorney Russ Buchanan could get a ruling from the State Attorney General if an election is needeu to put Cable TV in a community. /" Ex-Algonan Burns Nugent, who is connected with the WMT TV Inc. firm of Cedar Kapids has been active in selling and installing;'iGabliB;TV : 's^i>itehis';iind- < 'he-16ld' us' by telephone ' Friday that lie did hot believe an election of the people was necessary; to install Cable TV in a town. "TV is^not a_ public Utility and I just don't think an election is required," he reported. "Presently we are installing Cable TV at * airfield, Iowa without an election and will have it in operation in a couple of months. We've had a great deal of interest there and the city council there simply enacted an enabling ordinance tor us to do business in tne, city and to grant us easements to use city poles, etc." Nugene said the ordinance was simply a "license to do business for us." He was asked whether anyone had protested and he said not to his knowledge . . . "Oh, we could have an election but why do it when it isn't needed and it would more than likely carry anyway." He said there were two applicants for the Cable TV franchise at Fairi'ield and they solved the problem quickly by splitting it 50-50 between the two of them. The company also owns a number of Cable TV systems in Minnesota and one at Decorah. ' * SOME JOKER reported the other day the line was already forming out at Garrigan for the possible meeting of Algona high school and Garrigan Thursday, March 2 ... the Bulldogs meet Forest City and Garrigan laces Humboldt in the first round of the district Feb. 27 and the winners collide March 2 for the sub-state berth. Judging by the way the two teams are performing now, this could be the greatest of all Bulldog-Bear clashes . . . both will be given "high-up" ratings in the first January poll for the Northwest. The Bears have a brilliant coach in Steve McCall and he has come up with his best outfit yet — a firehouse crew that can shoot, press and rebound with anyone. After an opening game loss to Fort Dodge, Garrigan has ripped through five straight opponents plus North Des Moines in a Cl'nic game with a torrid 88-point average. Joe Becker has been an exciting addition to the already potent club which features the outshooting of Brian LaBarre and Bill .Reding and the sturdy board work of Dick Muller . . . McCall's main worry is keeping his crew healthy and out of foul trouble. If he can, the Bears might not lose another game if they can get by Hull (Western Christian) here next Wednesday. Everyone knew Coach Howie Stephenson over at the high school would have two of the area's best guards . , . but to believe he could find three other starters to build a winner with was almost beyond comprehension ... so the Bulldogs currently are 6-0 and only Webster City and Eagle Grove have tested them. Craig Espe and Tom Claude, the 5'9 or 10" mighty mites, are both averaging 17 or 18 points per game and Gregg Betts, Brocke Laws, Bill Boldridge and Roger Meyer have been big, big surprises. Someone asks, is this team as good as the club a year ago? Personnelwise, no. They don't have the "super star" in Dale Teeter but they are better balanced and hustle more than any club we've seen in Algona uniforms. You keep thinking their bubble will burst but Clear Lake certainly had the equipment to do it and failed miserably. An unbeaten season for the Bulldogs? Probably not but it could happen if they don't let down! Both coaches would probably like to get beat sometime in late January or early February before tournament time rolls around ! . • . the pressure can get something fierce with an 18-game winning streak behind you. ^^ Oh yes. Coach Keith Christie's Junior Varsity has posted seven straight victories also md Dujuae Kramer's Garrigan JV"s have lost just one game. Can any town even close to Algona's size in the state boast two such great records?
