Twin Rivers girls earn third straight state tournament trip Lakota wins consolation title, 65-47 Twin Rivers high school girls earned their third straight trip to the state tournament at DCS Moincs next week by thrashing Alden, 91-84 in the district finals at Clear Lake Saturday night, Twin Rivers now has a 204 season's mark, one of the best they have carried into the state meet. Last year the Pirates had an 18-7 win and lost in the first round. In fact, Twin Rivers has never gotten past the first round at the state. This year they'll have a rugged hurdle again when they meet West Des Moines at ^8:30 p.m. next Wednesday night. West is unbeaten in 22 games and is rated as the top -team in the state of Iowa. COACH DERALD Swishcr said though. "We're going down there with the idea ol winning." Ironically, Swisher was sick at his home Monday after Saturday night's big game. Some medication he was taking for sinus trouble backfired and he broke out in a rash Monday. His top scorer, Kristie Erd, man, also broke out in a rash ' but of baskets Saturday night 'as she poured in 63 points to pace the winning area girls. Kristie hit 22 field goals and 19 of 23 free throws enroute to her highest total of her career. Previous top was 60 points against West Bend. She now has a four-year career total of 2,677 points and has 1,187 this year. But Twin Rivers needed all those points as Alden stuck doggedly to the Pirates throughout the game. Twin Rivers-held a 21-19 first quarter lead and a 45-44 halftime margin. The difference was still only two points, 68-66, going into the final period. The Twin Rivers guards handled At- den's Donna Anderson well, allowing her only nine points. Backing up Miss Erd man's point total was Rita Nielsen with 21 and Gracia Kraabel with seven. Miss Erdman has an average of 49.6 points per game this season. SWISHER will take a comparatively young team to the state meet. There arc only three seniors on the squad compared to two juniors, seven sophomores and one freshman. For the game, Alden hit five more field goals but Twin Rivers was deadly from the foul line, hitting 31 of 38 tries off of 25 Alden fouls. Two Alden players fouled out of the game. IN THE consolation game, Lakota closed its season with a 6547 victory over Corwith-Wesley after leading 34-24 at the half. Linda Sicmans paced the winners with 28 points while Sue Karels pitched in with 25. Stephanie Bartlk led the losers with 25. In the free throw contest, Ann Anderson of Thompson took first prize with 21 of 25.

It will be Everly's fifth straight trip to the state meet. Ringsted hung on doggedly during most of the game. The Great Danes trailed at the half by just eight, 43-35 and' were tied at 15-15 after one quarter. The big break came with Ringsted leading, 25-24 early in the second period. Everly burst away with three quick buckets and the Danes never recovered. Ringsted closed the gap to 52-47 early in the third quarter but got no closer. Everly led 59-49 after three periods.

This program is dedicated to improve ment of communication and rehv tions between citizens of all countries with the thought that understanding between people is our only passport to peace. The three from this area are ach interested in different phases of agriculture—Keith in hecp, Frankl in cattle, and Linde n machinery. In each of the five countries visited they toured arms and ranches varying in size from small plots to ranches of thousands of acres. After touring a dairy farm and vineyards they rode in buses through the farming area around Lima, Peru and on to ;he Agricultural Experimental Station artd the new Peruvian Veterinary school. They were royally entertained in the U. S. Embassy by Ambassador Jones, a former Sioux City resident. THE HIGHLIGHT of the trip scenically was the trip 12,000 feet high in the Andes mountains from Lima to Cuzco, in a non- hotel instead of behind it! One rancher they met in Pat- aguay had 268 thousand acres and 17,000 cattle. Me is still a resident of the state of Vermont and sent his three children back there to college. Me has been in South America since 1929. In order to market his cattle, they were driven for 25 days across country for 200 miles at the loss of 50 pounds per head. There are no railroads and the dirt roads are inadequate for trucking. Only once did they suffer discomfort, Enroute to a ranch in Argentina they travelled in a bus which was not air-conditioned for seven hours in 100 degree temperature without food or water. But the greatest thrill came in this country, too. It was the cattle market in Buenos Aires where stock are auctioned off by the pen-full. The auctioneer was on walkways above the pens and the buyers in the alleyways below. As soon as the cattle were sold in one pen the new owner's goucho entered the pen and stamped each one with paint to brand it, right now, and they were taken to slaughter. ANOTHER interesting sight was to see horses stamping in clay and water to make bricks; this they did until the clay was of the proper consistency to form and put into the kiln. 30,000 i a day were made. Buenos Aires was the southern most part of the continent they visited. Hereford cattle are not adaptable to Peru or Uruguay; this day to day and it's value is an> nounced at 11 a.m. each day. inflation is prevalent, The wage scale went up 85% in one year, interest rates are as high as 43% for six months and the interest is deducted before the money is received. So, if $570 is need' ed one borrows $1000. In a city of 10,000 inhabitants there are 15 banks. But, there is no Home Federal Savings and Loan nor any finance companies, PROM SAO PAULO they vis ed coffee plantations and then the docks and the Coffee Ex change. At Rio de Janeiro the group drove to the most famous land* mark in South America. It is a church atop Corcovado Mountain with an 80 foot statue of Christ on top of the church. Another sight was Sugar Loaf mountain which they ascended by cable car. .

The second day they had an inter' perter; an uncle of Salvador's, a dentist, had filled a tooth for a lad the day before who was studying English so he was drafted to interpert for them. Our People io People contacts discussed our methods of modern efficient farming and feeding with those with whom they came in contact. In addition, our representatives had their personal calling cards with names and addresses on one side and a family picture on the other. They also distributed 2000 ball point pens inscribed "From People to People—Iowa Agricultural Delegation—Greetings, Sa- ludas, Saudacao". The delegation was made wel- the thousands of people on the miles of beach at Rio where the background, the scanty garb and umbrellas reminded them of Miami.

From Cuzco they went by railcar up to the "Lost City of the Incas" at Machu Picchu. It is one of the most fascinating archeological sites in the world with magnificent ruins of temples, houses, a cemetery and the Sun altar all built of marble overlooking the Sacred Valley. Almost 50 miles of the ancient Inca agricultural terraces are still in use. The average income of the farmers there is $20 a year where the annual rainfall is 8 inches. Here they saw the most poverty during their trip. In some places the farmer had to crawl up the mountain side to. reach his plot of ground. They raised sheep, Photo by Glenn's Almost killed by "hit-and-run" car John Burns Representing 'Ont of th« B«t" CENTRAL LIFE ASSURANCE COMPANY 105 Sow»h Colby — 295-2503 ALGONA Investigation is continuing this- week by Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst in an unusual accident at West Bend Sunday night in which a West Bend man narrowly escaped injury and possible death in a "hit-and-run" accident. The accident occurred at about 8:15 p.m. at the Traub Service Station on highway 44 in the south part of West Bend but on the east side of the highway in Kossuth county. Ben Bruhns, 47 of West Bend, had driven his car into the Traub station along the curb and Lee McQuown, also of West Bend. was standing on the left side of the car talking to Bruhns. They had the left front door open and McQuown was standing towards the rear of the car, which saved him from serious injury. The men saw • car approach from the south, speed up and swerve towards them, The machine smashed into the open door, missing McQuown by inches, and crushed the door completely. It continued on north on high- ,vay 44. The two men were, startled momentarily and then took after the car in Bruhn's car. Since the door was nearly torn off and it was raining, driving was difficult. THg TWO MIN chased the machine for about five miles, first north on highway 44 and then east on a blacktop. But HEARING? AIDS SM ANP HfAi THf NfW MQPHi THURSDAY, MARCH 4, 1965 4—ALGONA (Iowa) ADVANCE they lost the car and returned to West Bend to call Sheriff Lindhorst. '. Lindhorst drove to West Bend and questioned the two men. They told him the car was a taj$ color Oldsmobile, about a 1957| to 1959 model., They were un| able to identify the driver or ift there were any more passengers because of the bad weather? Lindhorst spent about three hours investigating and not-, iced a car with one light following him on Main street of West Bend just before he was to return to Algona, He stopped the car and questioned the driver, Richard LeRoy Bamvart, 21 of West Bend£ Lindhorst said the car matched the description given him by the two men and a piece of molding they gave him fit perfectly into a damaged front fender of Ban* wart's car. The headlight was also smashed. Banwart said he had been at a wedding reception at the Le^ gion club about one-half mile south of West Bend on highway 44. The Bruhn car had about $400 in damage to the left side while the Banwart car had about $.lq in damage. No charges have been filed. From this point they took a railcar which followed the steep canyon all of the way down along the river to Machu Picchu, dropping 3500 feet in altitude.

IN ASUNCION, Paraguay, they spent two full days — their days throughout the trip began at 6:30 a.m. and had dinner at 9 p.m. — visiting agricultural livestock operations and meeting with local and resident U. S. representatives, The economy of Paraguay seemed sound. The one and only time any of them felt unwelcome was that evening in front of their hotel. /A native with the streetside book store packed up and left ;for the night. As he passed them, probably is partially because of the lack of rainfall and the temperatures were 103 to 106°. The native cattle survive the best. In Uruguay, near the capitol, they watched the gouchos working cattle and sheep. They took a two day trip by bus across the country and visited the experimental Extension farm, for an afternoon. Members of the Extension program from the State College of Iowa and the State College of Uruguay work together there. Bill Zamolek, an Extension representative from Ames, accompanied the group from Iowa and here he met men he knew. Extension personnel are loaned for two year periods on this experimental farm. TWO WEEKS after leaving Iowa they were in Sao Paulo, Brazil. This rapidly expanding city is known as the "Chicago of South America." It is mushrooming at the rate of 5000 people a'day and its population is 4Va million. It is the industrial center of Brazil. One can't look in any direction: without seeing new building projects. 20 to 48-story buildings are going up by the day. They are made out of reinforced concrete —many of the buildings beautiful with the circular instead of straight lines. Sao Paulo-ranks ninth in the world in the manufacture of automobiles.
