10-Alflona, (la.) Upp«r DM Mofn«i tftundey, Sept. 29, 1966 Burt Bears Are Young FB Squad Burt High School's football team is again the smallest (In number) in the entire county. And nine starters left via graduation, so Coach Rich Strouse has a young, inexperienced club that opened the season with a 24-6 loss to Meservey-Thornton at Burt Sept. 9. For several years, Burt's scrimmage sessions have been .hampered by the lack of enough squad members. It is necessary to split the starting line in half and run the boys against each other in order to get in the hard-nosed aspects of the game, blocking and tackling. Coach Strouse has 17 boys on the squad this season. They are shown here, with the exception of John Fries, a letterman, who was not present. In the front row, left to right, are Tom Lichter, Alan Mescher, Jim Ruhnke, Clint Patterson, Mike Hamilton, Jim Curtis and Coach Strouse. Second row, left to right, Mark Cranston, Wayne Lavrenz, Howard Batt, Jim Baer, Brad Cranston, Francis Arend and Eddie Parcell, Back row, left to right, Harold Lavrenz, Bob Ruhnke, Randy Tjaden and Jerry McFarland, student manager.

(UDM Speed Graphic-Polaroid Photo) Bears Aim At Fourth In Row, St. Edmond, Saturday Garrigan's Golden Bears, riding the crest of a 3-game winning skein that has kept them unbeaten so far during 1966, will Invade Dodger Stadium at Ft. Dodge this Saturday night (Oct. 1) where they will tangle with an up and down St. Edmond team. The Gaels won their opener, roaring past Eagle Grove of the North Central Conference - but since then have dropped decisions to LeMars Central and South Sioux City, Nebraska. The latter school downed the St. Edmond team, 33-19, Friday night in Nebraska. The home club scored two touchdowns late in the fray to dump the Gaels. Leading the Bears against the GRID GUESSERS CONTEST BY OLD MAN MOSE Two of our Grid Guessers from last Saturday came up with 18 games picked correctly, so it simmered down to who had the closest high game total for the week, which was 56, the Minnesota-Stanford contest. Thus, Dave Everds of Allison, Iowa, won first place and $7; second place and $5 goes to Bonnie Eischen of Algona. Dave had a high game guess of 55 - and Bonnie chose 67 points. Third place was even closer. Mike Lierley of Algona, and Douglas J. Hansen of Ringsted, each had 17 games right, and a high game total of 54 selected by each one. Therefore, the third place money of $3 will be divided between them, or $1.50 each. Frances Moe of Algona also had 17 correct, but a high game total of 60, so a close runner-up. Other 17-game correct entries were Paul Seller, Notre Dame tackle, who sent in his entry from South Bend, Jane Fraser and Loren Hahle, both of Algona, Arnold D. Andreasen of Minneapolis, and Brian Hrubes of Wesley. The Honorable Mention bracket with 16 right includes Mary Ilia Kisch, Pat Chrtschilles, Jim Hoffman, Leonard Heller, Dwight Gilbride, Dave Hanselman, all Algona, and Arthur Klein of Sexton. The bulk of the entries had 14 and 15 games right. Our sympathy to Monte Pearson, from Clarence, Iowa, who must have been deliberately picking 'em wrong. He had nine correct and thus is the owner of the Mourner's Bench this week. Another full slate of 22 top games were listed for this week in the Tuesday edition o! the Upper Des Moines - get busy 1 Gaels Saturday night will be a pair of backs who have really eaten up yardage in the first three contests on the schedule Bill Reding, senior quarterback, and Jack Muller, junior fullback. •Reding, already getting some mention as a possible All-Stater, furnished the points that allowed the locals" to dump Sioux Falls O'Gorman last Friday night when he raced a punt back 65 yards fpr a TD, then kicked the extra point for a 7-6 verdict. He has gained 247 yards on the ground in 43 tries for a 5.7 per carry average and has hit 24 of 37 passes for another 277 yards. Bill has also scored five TDs, passed for three, kicked four extra points, run for two and passed for another pair. Muller, 6-4, 212-pounder who was a tackle last fall, has averaged almost 30 carries per game to date. In 88 attempts, Jack has netted 481 yards for a 5.4 average per try. He has also counted six touchdowns, getting three each in the first two contests, so he and Reding are tied for scoring honors with 36 points each. They have combined to gain 1,005 of Garrigan's 1,199 yards in the three wins, with 922 yards on the ground and 277 in the air. Meanwhile, anchoring the line is Dick Muller, senior end who stands 6-4 and weighs 238. Ha is a powerful blocker on offense and plays defense in a rugged fashion, also. He teams with Bob Schmitt, senior 6-1, 195 Ib. tackle in opening holes with the rest of the line for Reding, Jack Muller & Co. The win by the Bears last Friday night allowed them to equal their total of wins in 1965 when they posted a 3-4-1 m ark - and they seem to be on the way to an Bulldogs Gear For Big Homecoming Win Friday Algona'« Bulldogs will attempt to get back on the winning track when they host Iowa Falls in the annual Homecoming game here Friday night, with kickoff slated at 7:45 p. m. One of four local Queen candidates, Connie Darbyshire, Sandy Harmes, Rose Mlno or Brenda SJogren, all seniors, will preside at the game. A tough, 13-6 loss at Clarion In a North Central Conference game last Friday still lingers too well in the memories of the Bulldogs -who played well enough to win, but didn't. In this loop outing, the Bulldogs will be facing a big, rugged team that barely missed a win also Friday, dropping a 14-13 decision to Humboldt. So, both teams will be out for victory. Algona Is 1-2 for the season and 1-1 in the league, while the Cadets are 1-1-1 for the year and 1-1 in the loop standings. Algona'B victory was over Clear Lake, while Iowa Falls downed Eagle Grove, both In the second game this season. After the Clarion defeat, Coach Keith Christie and his assistants itarted making plans for the invasion by the Cadets this Friday. They said it is probable changes, will be made, shifting squad members around, etc., in an effort to get more speed Into the offensive bickfield. With the Algona running attack aimed Into the line most of the time, other clubs have been able to stack up local backs and stall the ground game. It Is hoped a few surprises can be readied for the Cadets. Actually, there has been little wrong with the Algona defense, On the ground, three opponents to date have managed only 232 yards, with Clarion accounting for 160 of the total - and the opposition hasn't exactly passed Algona Billy, either, but a couple of completions have resulted In the pair of losses. The Bulldogs have several runners who have demonstrated power, including Bob Farnham, Randy Rledinger, Steve Waller and Gregg Betts, but so far, the outside threat is m issing. A rib injury, sustained by end Tom Claude on the third play in the Clarion contest, removed Claude from defensive duty In that fray - and at times, his. rock-ribbed tackling was missed. Max Miller, however, took up some of the slack, along with several others, as Miller perhaps turned in his best game to date, He repeatedly slowed up Clarion backs so tackles could be made (or was In on the stop himself). And Larry Munger & Co. manhandled the Clarion attack, except for Larry Delano, who accounted for much of the rushing yardage by the Cowboys. Again, Christie's crew showed it will not throw in the sponge against anyone - no matter what the odds, and a few times at Clarion the odds weren't too good. Maybe they'll be better Friday I CONGRATULATIONS Mr, and Mrs. tfevi Pennington, formerly of Solon and now residents of Mechanicsville, received anniversary congratulations from President and Mrs. Johnson on the occasion of their 65th wedding anniversary which was. on August 14.
