Friday Night at Storm Lake ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, THURS., FEB. 1, 1973 Page 6 Estherville Midgets Face Revamped Tornado Squad The Estherville Midgets will try to get back on the winning trail Friday night when they clash with the Storm Lake Tornadoes at Storm Lake. In their first meeting on Dec. 8, Estherville used the scoring of three Midgets in double fig­ ure? and a strong finish to dump Storm l,ake 57-48. It was the first l.akes Conference win for Kstherville over a Storm Lake team since the 1968 season. Hut Estherville Coach George Hess considers the win water over the dam. "It's not the same ball club we played back in December," commented the Midget mentor. "They've been playing real good basketball lately and are currently third in the conference with a 6-4 mark." Storm Ijike built up a 19-point lead midway in the final quarter, then held on for a 61-51 victory over Sibley last Friday. The Tornadoes upped their mark for a third place position paced by Dave Felton's 20 points, Jerry Peterson's strong rebounding and a good defensive effort from Terry Paulson. "They play a real good man to man defense," noted Hess whose Estherville teams have been rated as high as sixth in the state. "We're going to have to let them make the mistakes and let them foul us." Estherville is currently sitting smug In fourth place in the Lakes Conference with an even 5-5 mark and arc out of the title race but Coach Hess considers each game in the final stretch as important as the first contests. "We're going to have to take each game one at a time and improve on ourselves, "com- IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII Jim Sundall Former Estherville Prep Stars for Coyote Matmen A .former Estherville prep, Jim .Sundall son of Mr. and Mrs*Dayton Sundall, has been recognized by the University of South Dakota for his outstanding performances on the Coyote wrestling team.

Joan Ryan The Liberation of Billie Jean King Festival Features Competitive Skiing By JIM FERREE With the countdown beginning for Estherville's fifth annual Winter Sports Festival, DonSievers, owner of Holiday Mountain said Wednesday that last week's unseasonably warm weather did not damage the ski slopes that will be used in this weekend's ski competition. "We'll be in good shape," said Sievers, "We've been making snow the last couple of nights that has put a good white cover on the base." More than 170 skiers representing 14 colleges from the five-state area are expected to vie for the Iowa Governor's Cup Ski Championship on Saturday, Feb. 3. Race Director Ron Riedemann said that a new Governor's Cup will be presented to the winning college this year that will conform to Governor's Cups of nearby states. The defending college men's team from Grand Rapids Junior College at Grand Rapids will be back to defend the title they won last year. The defending women's ski team from the University of Wisconsin at LaCrosse will, also be back to defend its title. Judging is based on the three best times taken from the five members of each team who are entered in the event. "On the average," noted Sievers, who got interested in skiing while in the army in Germany, "we get some of the better looking skiers than you'll find in Colorado. When I mean better looking I mean those skiers who have beautiful form and better technique." Sievers added that the competition gets tougher each year that the Sports Festival is held. Don commented that the two most popular slopes used at Holiday Mountain are in excellent shape and that only a good rain would damage the four slopes that have gained popularity in northwest Iowa. Sievers noted that the number I of runs taken by the juniors has been decreased to two runs instead of the usual three this year. The college races are sanctioned by the Midwest Collegiate Ski Association while all other races are locally judged. The college races are strictly judged on timing over a laid out course. Electronic equipment is set up at the starters gate and at the finishing points for the most precise and accurate timing. Riedemann said that more housing is still needed for the college students that are coming in and stated that if housing is available to call the Chamber of Commerce and make arrangements. Riedemann urged that all local skiers competing in this weekend's events should complete the entry form and return it to the Chamber office no later than Friday afternoon. By JOAN RYAN WASHINGTON (NEA) Billie Jean Moffitt King has been named Sports Illustrated's Sportswoman of the Year but her critics are still numerous. "She's too tough, too masculine," said one long-retired woman tennis player. "She gets tennis and women's lib mixed up like church and state; there's no place for that kind of soap box in sports," said another. Billie Jean would probably grin malevolently at this exchange. For though Billie Jean promotes women's tennis on a worldwide stage, there's a certain bit of self- promotion tjhe obviously enjoys, too. Even way back when she was little Miss Moffitt, she was not one to sit on her tuffet with her tennis racket relaxed. She loved the game the first time she ever hit that fuzzy ball and she drilled herself to be a competitive Billie Jean King More Iowans Picked As Pro Draft Ends NEW YORK (AP) - Nine players with Iowa connections were selected Wednesday as the National Football League completed its annual player draft. Five of the selections in the eighth through 17th rounds were Iowa natives, bringing to a total of eight selected in the 17-round, two-day draft. In all, 15 Iowans or players who played for Iowa schools were picked among the 44 players selected headed by Iowa State quarterback-running back George Amundson, who was taken by Houston in the first round Tuesday. By round, the selections Wednesday were: Eighth round, Bill Windauer, a lineman from Iowa, taken by Baltimore; Craig Barling, an offensive tackle from Cedar Rapids and the University of Iowa, taken by Minnesota; and Doug Winslow, a wide receiver from Altoona and Drake, taken by New Orleans. Eleventh round, Geary Murdock, an offensive guard from Iowa State, taken by Minnesota. Twelfth round, Mike Samples of Drake, drafted by Atlanta as a linebacker. Fourteenth round, Merv Krakau, Guthrie Center and Iowa State, taken by Buffalo as a linebacker. Krakau was a defensive end for the Cyclones, a third-team All-American and a national lineman of the week last season. Also in the 14th round, Little All-American Bruce Polen of William Penn. He was selected by Oakland as a defensive back. Fifteenth round, Ken Schlezes of Sioux City and Notre Dame, taken by Philadelphia as a de­ fensive back and Charley Cross of Ditbuque and the University of Iowa, taken by Pittsburgh as a defensive back.

YOUR TRADE IS ALWAYS WELCOME PHONE 362-3545 player. She could have told Vince Lombardi a few things about dedication and winning. After her marriage, reporters referred to her as "a bouncy outspoken housewife from Long Beach, Calif., "as much a misnomer as if one were to describe Raquel Welch as the typical Roller Derby moll because of her appearance in the movie, 'Kansas City Bombers.' " She was named top female athlete for 1967, but in July 1969, her three-year dominance at Wimbledon was halted by another old married lady, Ann Haydon Jones. Billie Jean denied that she was unstrung by the partisan crowd reaction, but she did drop a cute curtsy in a plea for silence. By the time the boos died down, a new Billie Jean began to surface. Outwardly she was softer, more feminine; inwardly, she seethed. And shortly the world knew it., She became more stylish, letting her hair grow to the new shaggy waif look instead of the old Jane Powell coed cut 'n curl. She burned her baby blue plastic batwing glass frames and outfitted her face with wrap-around wire-rim goggles a la Gloria Steinem. And she jumped up on Gloria's podium for female equality and began slicing a few curves at tennis. She pouted and fussed over money. She turned pro and became the first women athlete to earn over $100,000 in each of two consecutive years. She sued and snarled over bad officiating and small purses. And if she had not turned her ire on the tennis world, there might not be a Virginia Slims Tournament with a fat, silk, fringed purse for women pros. She's come a long way, baby, from the bouncy housewife, Mrs. American Pie image she built up in her early years. She is outspoken in favor of abortion, if not against motherhood: "I would have had it (her abortion) even if I hadn't been playing tennis. We just did not want this child at this time. Tennis, I believe, is one of the greatest things a woman can do." But she is no bra burner. Billie Jean hotly denied the published report that she criticized actress Elke Sommer for wearing a transparent white tennis dress minus her bra. "I don't care what people wear, or don't wear, on the tennis court," sniffed the former Miss Moffitt. She doesn't care what they wear, just as long as women keep signing up for the tournaments and creating crowd excitement in their slower-paced but just as tough game. She's a fierce competitor, yet openly admits that she's glad to share fan "adulation with the newcomers to women's tennis. When she was unseated by Evonne Goolagong as No. 1 last year, she said, "I go crazy when I'm introduced as the No. 2 player in the world." But she later admitted that Evonne's and newcomer Chris Evert's "stardom and all that attention are my dreams for tennis." Her dream for women's tennis has been partially realized. It has style, draw, recognition and pay-off now. What Billie Jean King did for tennis was to take some tough wire-snips and do a delicate job of removing the lace from Gussie .Moran's panties. That alone is reason enough to be named Sportswoman of the Year. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) Henry Block has 17 reasons why you should come to us for income tax help. Reason 9.
