Catch Prize Sail Fish In Gulf Algona' Isn't exactly what you'd call a seacoast town, but it seems that it produces some rare trophies and record-breaking catches when it comes to deep sea fishing. Last winter, Mrs. Dick Cook caught an 185 Ib. blue marlin off the coast of Acapulco, Mexico, measuring 9 1/2 feet long, the largest caught in that section of the Pacific in five years. Then recently, Clyde Priebe and Virg Smith of Algona went down to the Gulf of Mexico, and Clyde hauled in a 7 foot, 4 inch sailfish, the largest caught of that species in a fishing contest which ended last Saturday, with Clyde the winner of the grand prize, although at the moment he doesn't know what the prize will be. In the above picture, kneeling Is Clyde, and at the right, Virg, with the trophy fish between them. If we hadn't seen the picture, we might not believe it either.! Bears Will Shoot Edgington Is Title Winner At Fairmont •-. >.-=•=:{•• Garrigan's Golden Bears will invade LeMars for a meeting with Gehlen, always a tough foe, tomorrow (Friday) night - and •Coach Beanie Cooper, whose club operates with three basic plays on offense, plans to use those three plays in an effort to pick up victory number two this season. The Bears combined a fine running attack with the pinpoint passing of BUI Reding (who hit 15 of 20 for 152 yards) to dump Estherville in the season opener here Friday, 32-13. An over-all margin of 428-156 in yardage gained running and passing allowed the locals to win handily. Reding, hurt in the second game last year and knocked out of action,. seems to be the key to success - although it appears he is going to get lots of help from three'other fellows in the backfield, Jack Muller, who got christened royally at fullback by carrying the mail 29 times for 135 yards against the Midgets, and Tom Black, a nifty runner who teams with Gene Lickteig to give the Bears the type of outside running game needed. Up front, the Bears are impressive, both on offense and defense, with guys like Dick Muller, Jerry Plathe, Dave McCarthy and Kevin O'Brien leading the way, This second game of the new season is an important one (of course, they all are) - as Garrigan hits the road three straight weeks. So Cooper and his team would like to grab this one. Ball handling aginst Estherville was perfect - with no fumbles chalked up against the Bears. On the other hand, the alert Plathe and O'Brien teamed to capture three mlscues by the visitors. It was apparent in the opener the Bears want to have a better- than .500 season - and a look at the schedule points out just how difficult that job will be. However, it's very probable, if they continue to combine a weU- rounded offense with a rugged defense as shown against Estherville, the Bears will get the job done. Their showing Friday night was a very good one. Jim Edgington of Algona was crowned the 1966 Fairmont Speedway champion as he drove to first place in the 15 lap "A" feature stock car race Sept. 4. Edgington, second only to Jack McCorkell of Wabasso in the season point standings, gunned to an early lead and held it through the 15-lap championship race. Vic Dicks of Jackson placed second and Les Wildin of Algona third. Edgington also won the second heat and the third heat. The paid gate was reported at $4,400 and the driver's purse was $2,200. At Conference Ella Zumach, president, and Monica Storr, vice president, of the Algona chapter of the Business and Professional Women, are attending the fall board meeting of the Iowa Federation, Sept. 10-11 in Waterloo.

Three Local Drivers Fare Well In Stocks Three Algona drivers grabbed a fair share of large purses during modified stock car races at Jackson and Fairmont, M'nn. during the weekend. At Jackson Saturday, Jim Edgington copped first in a heat and third in the feature, while Gene Schattschneider was first in the B-feature and third in a heat. At Fairmont Sunday, Les Wildin won the B-feature and a heat and Schattschneider was third in a heat race during the running for the mythical Minnesota State Stock Car Championship. Marv DeWall of Jackson won the championship event. Garrigan's QB Reding Named Prep Of Week Bill Reding, Garrigan High School's senior Quarterback, was honored this week when he was selected Prep of the Week in the Des Moines Register Wednesday. He was selected for the honor on the basis of his outstanding performance in the season opener last Friday night when the Bears dumped Estherville, 32-13, and Reding accounted for 76 yards rushing and 152 yards passing on 15 completions in 20 attempts.

ARMY, VIETNAM — An Army unit that took part in the Philippine Insurrection of 1899 - 1903 has again arrived in the Far East for combat service. The llth Armored Cava- Regiment landed this week. The highly mobile regiment •as last stationed at Fort George G. Meade, Md. Private First Class Richard L. Reising, 21, son of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew G.

McGregor, Algona, Iowa, is undergoing nine weeks of basic training at the Naval Training Center here. SAN DIEGO, CALIF. (FHTNC) Sept. 6 -- Seaman Recruit Terrance L. Wagner, USN, son of Mr. and Mrs. Dwight W. Wagner of 1302 E. Elm: Seaman Recruit Franklin T. .Heinen, USN, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ferman A. Heinen of 607 W. College St., all of Algona, Bulldog Defense Will Get Test At Clear Lake When Algona's Bulldgos tangle with the Clear Lake Lions at Clear Lake tomorrow (Friday) night, the meeting will feature a pair of clubs that failed to score in season openers last Friday. The North Central Conference opener at Clear Lake will pit the locals, who dropped a 6-0 decision at Emmetsburg, against the Lions, who battled to a 0-0 stand-off with Forest City the same night. Coach Keith Chrisite hopes his team will have an opportunity to penetrate enemy turf Friday, giving the club a better opportunity to use its balanced offense (running and passing). At Emmetsburg, the locals were pinned in their own back yard most of the time and couldn't get anything in the way of a real sustained drive underway, The running attack promises again to feature the slams of Bob Farnham and Randy Riedinger, woo ran well against the E-Hawks - but the air arm, with either Roger Barr or Rod Rogert i jssing, probably will get its first real workout as opportunities were slim at Emmetsburg. If the Bulldogs do get the combine running and passing at Clear Lake, they should be real tough. The defense proved itself against the bigger E-Hawks, giving up only a pair of first downs in the entire contest while allowing slightly more than a yard a trip by Emmetsburg ball carries. And Larry Munger and Co. will be out to do the same type of job at Clear Lake. From end to end, including the linebackers, the locals seem to be rugged. Algona's showing in the opener, a contest in which the Bulldogs actually outplayed the winners, but gave up one scoring pass, was impressive, especially when injuries are considered. The locals might not be at full strength physically ail season as two players, Bill Boldridge and Rich Black, counted on as regulars, are sitting out part (and possibly all the season) with fractures. Several others are nursing ankle injuries. WBGHTED DOWN WITH WORK?
