A number of children were there, too. Chartered buses took passengers from the down town area and many people drove their own cars. During th* rest of the week members of several service organiiations and a class from th* high school will tour the plant, probably making the total number of visitors about 1,000, moments but the Bulldogs always seemed to be. equal to the occasion as the locals sent Emmetsburg out of the district tournament here in the first round, 72-68 Monday night in the Garrigan gym. It was the lirst step on what Bulldog fol- owers hope is a return to the state tournament in Des Moines next month. This could be a big wish hough for plenty of tough contenders lay ahead, the next of which is Lakota Friday night. But Algona showed flashes of brilliance in this opening round win, particularly by Dale Teeter, who poured in 27 points. Only in rebounding did the 6'4" Bulldog junior seem lacking Monday. Al Priebe and Steve Hardy made up fp'r Teeter's lack of position at times. As it was Dale got quite a few rebounds — just nol his normal quota. Priebe had one of his better scoring nights with 14 points before fouling out with six seconds left in the game. Tom Claude also hit double figures with a dozen points and most 01 vantage. The Bulldogs went into a semi- stall and counted only free ;hrows the rest of the way but that was enough. Most Algona fans had figured their club had improved im- mensley since a 71-69 overtime loss to Emmetsburg in the season opener last fall. The E- Hawks showed they'd come a long way too and this was a scorching battle all the way.

Lakota a » d Armstro »g hooked For Emmetsburg, their great U P in their third meeting of the season here Monday night anc the Eagles rolled to their 17th straight win enroute to a 20-1 year thus far by crushing the Tigers, 71-63 in the opening district tournament game. Armstrong was the only team to beat Coach Earl Zwager- mann's club this year and in fact, it was the first time the Eagles have been beaten in a regular season game in three years. The difference was junior Roger Becker, who ended with 26 points from his forward post. He threw in the key points about every time Armstrong threatened and besides scoring a third of his team's points, he passed off beautifully for many assists. Becker got valuable scoring help from Rich Thomson with 18 points while Dick Barrett and Allan Lindell led the Tigers with 19 points each. Jim God fredsen, the high-scoring Arm strong center, was held to just 11. Armstrong never led in thi game after the early minute scoring ace Craig Lewis was top man with 25. He's the boy that broke a 10-year old school scoring record set by Jim Truelson in the 1950's with 43 just a few nights before. You could easily see why here Monday. THE E-HAWKS led in this game only twice and the first was on a long swisher by this [uy Lewis to start the night's scoring. Teeter and Hardy got Algona into a 4-2 lead and although Algona never again was behind until near the end, the score was knotted at 4-4, 7-7, and 9-9 before Priebe stuffed in five straight points to close out the quarter with an Algona lead of 14-11. Claude sandwiched a Teeter free throw with two long pushers and then Teeter reeled off seven straight points before Claude got a rebound to make it 28-20, Teeter hit again to push Algona in front 30-20 for its biggest lead up to then.

The scrappy E-Hawks, who gave away several inches in height to the locals but not an inch in scrap, showed otherwise, Mr. Lewis hit a free throw and rebound, and then two more free throws and the half ended at 36-31 when Espe's desperation shot from midfloor (a 45- footer) banked in off the glass. But Emmetsburg started right to work in the second half and got the thing tied at 38-38 with 5:30 left on Paul Brown's short! shot. Teeter and Merryman got: Algona back in front and the Bulldogs stretched the advan- take to 49-42. ALGONA UEP 55-48 after Steve Hardy's layup and the quarter ended 55-50.

Merryman got Algona back into the lead with a jumper but Brown hit again on a drive shot and Emmetsburg led 60-59 with five minutes left. They never I were to lead again or be closer ithan four points. Claude hit 1 from the side and Priebe caught the nets with a jumper. Teeter then drilled four straight free throws tor a 67-60 Algona ad- but each time Lakota built an 8 or 10-point lead, the Tigers whitled away to get back in contention. Lakota built a 12-6 first quarter bulge but a layup by Barrett sliced the margin to 16-14 early in the second quarter. Becker hit eight straight points and passed off for another to increase the spread to 10 at 2717 but the Tigers had it cut in half at the intermission, 29-24.
