It's Homecoming As Bears Gun For 5th Straight Win Algona's State Champs Of 50 Years Ago Garrigan's Golden Bears will have the spirit of Homecoming to spur them to their fifth straight win of the 1966 campaign this Saturday night when the Emmetsburg Catholic Irish pay a visit to Garrigan Field at 8 p.m. Coach Beanie Cooper's club has bombed three opponents, Estherville, 32-13, LeMars Gehlen, 65-6, and Ft. Dodge St. Edmond, 46-6, and edged O'Gorman of Sioux Falls, 7-6, in remaining perfect through the first half of the slate. Halftime events at the game Saturday will include crowning a Homecoming King and Queen and a band show. A dance will follow the game. Queen candidates include Rebecca Llcktelg, Patricia Loebig, Patricia McGuire and Janette Miller, while King candidates, Gene Licktelg, Dick Muller, Bill Reding and Jim Youngwirth, are all members of the football team. A big pep rally is on tap Friday evening at Garrigan Field, with talks by Coach Cooper, Fr. Friedmann, supt., and Pat Daugherty, former Garrigan baseball coach. The Bears, who seem destined to become the greatest football aggregation in the school's history, have been led on offense by Reding and Jack Muller, while big Dick Muller is the solid senior around whom the offensive and defensive line is anchored. Redlng's performances so far this year have been great. In the four games to date, the quarterback has accounted for 535 yards passing, hitting 42 of 63 attempts (.667 percent) while throwing to a fine group of receivers, including Youngwirth, Tom Black, John Winkel, Dick Muller, etc. He's added another 255 yards on the ground to account for 790 of Garrigan's 1,641 yards gained to date. Bill has scored five TDs, including one each on a punt return and a kickoff return, has booted four extra points, slammed for two others to account for 36 points. Seven touchdowns have been scored on his passes and five points after have come the same way. Jack Muller saw limited duty at fullback against St. Edmond & the Bears'- latest victory last Saturday night. He has been hampered by a muscle Injury in the right leg and went to the sidelines after pounding for 55 yards in seven tries, upping his season total to 536 yards rushing in 95 carries, an average of 5.6 yards per crack. Coach Cooper hopes he'll be ready for Catholic, but has a pretty fair pair of reserves waiting in the wings if they are needed, John Mertz and Mark Goetz. Hardly enough can be said about Dick Muller's play. He is co- captain of the squad with Reding and at 6-4 and over 230 pounds is a real STEADY performer both on offense and defense. He Is used mainly for blocking on offense, but does occasionally get the call to grab one of Reding's pitches. He, along with Reding, undoubtedly is being watched by a number of collegiate scouts. To date, the Bears have averaged 37.5 points per game, while giving up 6.2 to each opponent and Garrigan's offense has averaged slightly more than a 410- yard per game total. On the basis of their play so far, the Bears are rated a favorite over Catholic in this one, especially if they don't look a week ahead to the head-on meeting with Carroll Kuemper's fine outfit. N. Central F.T.A Conclave Held At Forest City The annual North Central District meeting of the F. T. A. was held at Forest City, Saturday, September 24. The two main events which took place were the electing of new district officers and a talk which was given by Mrs. Max Goldman. In the electing of new officers the president was Kathie Glade, Dows, vice-president Becky Mis- sill, Clarion, secretary Jane Hickok, Charles City, historian, Sherry Holmes, Dows, publicity Dorothy Rodamaker, Charles City, and music chairman Marsha Baker, Webster City. The two nominees for state office for parliamentarian were Pete Vidal, Hampton and Candi Naden from Webster City. GRID GUESSERS CONTEST BY OLD MAN MOSE Wow I Not many of our Grid Guessers survived the upsets, but the ones that did must have had a crystal bail. Douglas H. Hansen of rural Rlngsted, had the best entry he came up with 18 games picked right, missing only the upsets of Ohio State, Yale, Minnesota and Michigan. Taking second, with 17 games correct, was Jim Hoffman of Algona. He had a high game total point pick of 59. The high gam o total actually was 60, the Washington (38)- Ohio State (22) contest. Thus he edged out Mary Ola Klsch of Algona and Mrs. Robert Kaln of Whlttemore, who tied for third. Each had 17 games correct and a high game total of 58, so they divide the third place cash award. There were other entries with 17 correct, but farther away in high game totals. Picking 17 were Frances Moe, Robert McAllister, and Walter Elbert, all of Algona; Eugene Dahlhauser, West Bend; and Larry Sorensen, Fenton. Guessers with 16 right were A. J. Romer, Jesup, la.; Allen Christensen, Oskaloosa; Ruth Baumann and Mrs. George Baum ann, Lakota; Dave Everds, Allison, la.; Lor en Hahle, Brett Bartlett, Dwight Gilbride, Dick Thoreson, Mike Cooper, Gladys Shumway, all Algona; Don Kailovec, Corwith; and Tim Schultz, Whittemore. The Mourner's Bench for the week is occupied by Erwin Quinn of Whittemore, with seven correct picks. This week's games were in Tuesday's edition; same rules, same prizes, same fun; and spot those upsetsl Bulldogs Hope To Upset League Leading Wildcats The creative thinker, not the imitator, is the one who gets ahead. Algona's Bulldogs have their . work cut out for them this week. They'll be hosting the surprising Humboldt Wildcats, who have posted three straight North Central Conference victories, including the big one, 7-6, over Webster City last Friday, after dropping their season opener to Twin Rivers. Coach Keith Christiejs club,,,, will be in quest of its secondT .of the 1966,,se,aspn,.- and,, also: the second . in.., we loop.;, Algona lost its-opener to Emmetsburg, 6-0, then ypended^ sClear Lake, 26-7, before drop-' ping a 13-6 decision to Clarion and 13-0 contest to Iowa Falls in the latest outings. The Bulldogs are well-equipped defensively - but have lacked the fast halfback that could keep the defense honest - and it has hurt the team's chances for victory. The opposition is able to concentrate on the Bulldogs' good inside running game - and scoring drives have been scarce. Actually, the play of the locals has been highlighted by the play of hard hitters like Tom Claude, Larry Munger, Randy Riedinger, Tom Jones, Bob Farnham, Steve Waller and several others - and the short passing game, featuring the throwing of SmokeyBarr, with Claude on the catching end most of the time, has been adequate, but not explosive, mainly because the long bomb is missing. Coach Christie stated before the season began that Humboldt might furnish the darkhorse team in the loop before the curtain falls later - and he must have known what he was talking about. The Wildcats feature the passing of Rick Kuhlman, who is also a top defensive performer, the pass receiving of Doug DeSmidt and fine defensive work of Geoff Mickelson. Kuhlman has averaged more than 20 yards 1 per completion (not including the Webster City game), hitting 14 of 33 attempts, and DeSmidt had five catches for 124 yards along the way. Doug Marso heads the rushers. He got 149 yards in 35 tries in the Wildcats' first two loop frays. Riedinger, Farnham and Waller have all shown they can eat up chunks of terrain on the straight-ahead plays, but the outside running has been very slim. One fast man, able to run sweeps, could make a whale of a difference in the offense, An upset victory by the Bulldogs over Humboldt tomorrow (Friday) night would flip the conference race into a cocked hat. Humboldt is 3-0 and Webster City, Iowa Falls and Clarion are each 2-1. PIKE "Big ones" have been caught at North Twin Lake recently. One northern caught by Ernie Trzynka, Manson, was 10 Ibs., 1 oz.; one caught by Ralph Voith, Rockwell City, weight 13 Ibs., iZ oz.
