AIN STEM §Y JULIAN CHRISCHILLII "Twin tan* by State JMr ^MMM^HHMBHBBMHHHBH "The worst job of home cooking I've ever seen." These were the words used by Clarion high school coach Lou Collier in describing the officiating in last Tuesday night's Algona-Clarion game here which was won by Clarion in an overtime, 61-57 . . . Collier told Ft. Dodge Messenger sports editor Bob Brown by telephone, "I'm ready to be quoted . . , that was the worst I've ever, ever seen." They (the offiicals) finally put a technical on Howie Stephenson for standing up but heck ... he had to stand on the floor for a whole minute to get it." Bulldog coach Stephenson was more than a little shocked at Collier's statements since he is what Stephenson termed "one of the mildest mannered coaches in our league." To this writer at least, who has seen most Algona home games the past 15 years and quite a few out-of-town contests, Collier was completely off base. We've seen "homers" both here and away but the two young men" that worked the game here Tuesday were anything but that. Although the play was ragged at times, we could honestly say they called fouls evenly and as best any official can in a "cracker box" gym such as ours when any official takes his life in his own hands by getting under the basket where there is nothing to protect him from flying elbows and knees except a brick wall a couple of feet in back of him. To refute Collier's statements, we offer this as evidence: <1) In the first half, Algona was called for 11 fouls compared to 4 against Clarion. Algona never did shoot a "one- and-one" in the first half. The fouls ended 19 against Clarion and 17 against Algona. (2) Algona's starting center, Al Priebe, fouled out early in the third quarter and at one point was called for two "fouls in the. space of five seconds in the second quarter. (Mr. Collier must have been dozing then). Actually, Priebe was the only player to foul out of the game. (3) The technical foul called against Stephenson was a travesty of justice. A few moments prior to the call, Algona's Danny Merryman drove in for a layup which he made despite the fact he was knocked halfway across the court and almost into the Algona pep band. He lay on the floor, obviously injured, for a few seconds and then got up to rejoin the battle (no foul was called), limping badly and holding his bruised hip. Stephenson got off the bench, frantically trying to call the official's attention to Merryman's injury. Since it is an automatic technical foul this year if a coach : stands up from the bench unless he is signaling a time-out or ; making a substitute, one of the two officials stopped play and called a technical foul on Stephenson — unaware of the. : reason for the Algona coaches' action. i (4) Clarion won the game on free throws — sinking 15 of 20 chances against 11 of 22 for Algona. (5) All the free throws in the overtime period, three or four, were given to Clarion. (6) Algona did its best rebounding job of the season and time and again had inside position against the Cowboys. Many of the fouls called against Clarion were for reaching over and laying on the backs of Algona players after they . had rebounded the ball. . POST-HOLIDAY OBSERVATIONS — In raising three boys, a woman doesn't need to be a mother as much as being a re.feree . . . wild-life feeding seems to be an obsession in our family. Not only do we keep our bird feeder full, but the six-year old daughter slips out to put carrots on the : ground for rabbits at night. Darned if she didn't spot two eating under the bird feeder the other evening . . . It's not really the gift so much as the thought behind it that brightens Christmas for everyone. Like the hand-made leather comb case and comb our 12-year old gave me for Christmas, It • was 20 years too late but still appreciated. IF YOU WATCH pro football TV, you've probably noted that play is stopped once in a while for a time-out and the referee, instead of pointing to one side or the other which has called the time-out, points to both teams . . . this indicates it is an official's time-out for a TV commercial. Since many times, the pro teams save their time-outs until near the end of the first half, there is no time for TV commercials and the officials are given a signal from the sideline that one is needed. DICKY DAISY Armstrong remains on State Line top Lakota rips Swea City; Titonka splits The Armstrong boys and girls stayed on top of the State Line Conference races Friday night With victories but the Lakota boys also kept their string going and several girls teams stayed within range. * * * ARMSTRONG RIPS LEDYARD TWICE Armstrong — The Armstrong girls won their 7th straight and the league-leading boys also notched wins here Friday.
