GHS-Kuemper Meeting Should Be A Bruiser 12-Atgona, (Id.) Upper Det Molnti THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1966 Garrigan's Golden Bears, riding the crest of an unbeaten season with five straight victories, are slated to run headlong into another of the state's powerful clubs, Carroll Kuemper, here this Saturday night. The Bears and Kuemper have both been among the state's rated teams for most of the current season — and prior to contests last weekend, the locals were three notches ahead of the Carroll entry and ranked 12th. Garrigan pummelled Emmetsburg Catholic's scrappers, 4613, here before a huge Homecoming crowd Saturday night, while Kuemper and North Des Moines battled to a 14-14 knot the same evening. Kuemper's record is now 3-1-1 against real rugged oppositon - so the game here Saturday should be a knock down, drag 'em out affair. Both clubs feature a strong defense and balance aplenty on offense. Kuemper's quarterback and fullback are reported to be top-flight - and Garrigan fans feel that their quarterback, Bill Reding, and fullback, Jack Muller, take a back seat to no one. Reding, who is the sparkplug of the outfit, is sensational practically every time out. He has gained 333 yards on the ground in 65 carries for a 5.1 average and hit 53 of 80 passes (.662 pet.) for another 648 yards for a total of 981 yards total offense. He has also intercepted five enemy passes, carried punts and kick-offs back for more than 300 yards, including a pair for touchdowns, has scored six TDs, passed for 11 more, kicked seven extra points, run two others and passed for six. He has scored 45 points this season. And, if Reding's talents aren't enough, take a look at Muller's claim to fame. Jack, a junior who plays in the line on defense, is at fullback for the first time on the Varsity this fall. He has clawed, chopped and slammed his way forward for 659 yards in 105 tries for a very impressive 6.2 average per try. Giving both of these lads (and f tne .rest of the team, also) a big hand, both, on offense and de- .fense is big Dick Muller. He's averaging 11 tackles per game : and is a bomber when blocking v '.for Reding, brother Jack Muller 'and Co. ; Garrigan's first defensive unit has not given up a touchdown on the ground — and only one through the air so far this season, while OCTOBER'S SATURDAY ' GRID GUESSERS CONTEST BY OLD MAN MOSE Again it was the high game total for the week which made the final decision in the Grid Guesser Contest winners for last Saturday. The high game total was the Air Force (54), Hawaii (0) contest. "' Selmer Nelson of Cylinder took first place. He had 17 correct picks out of 22, and a high game total of 52. A short step behind him, in second place, was Dick Palmer of Algona with 17 games correct and a high game guess of 51. Third place wound up in a tie, and a division of third place loot, between Bill Dudding of Bancroft and Robert McAllister of Algona. Each had 17 games right, and a high game guess of 59 points. Also coming in with 17 correct, but just out of the money with a high game choice of 43, was Louis H. Reilly of Algona. It was a Saturday of upsets, and it hurt all the guessers. Honorable mention goes to 16-game pickers: David E. Hansen, Ringsted; Robert Witham, LuVerne; Mrs. B. J. Bradford, Frances Moe, Wayne Frideres, Dwight Gilbride' and Dave Chrischilles, all of Algona; Dave Everds, Allison, la.; Bill Prochaska, Buffalo Center; Michael Jackson, Lone Rock; and Bob Barslou, Jr., Swea City. And to Barbara Baumann, Lakota, condolences for getting but six right aTid'earning 'the Mourner's Bench seat this week.

The Lynx righted themselves with a convincing 27-0 victory over a good Iowa Falls team last Friday and are again on the prowl for a possible North Central Conference championship, should the Wildcats stumble somewhere along the way. Algona is capable of giving anyone a good scrap - and will have to be up Friday if the upset trap is to be sprung under the Lynx. Paul Seller Is Dame's Offensive Star Notre Dame, Ind. -- Paul Seller, a 6-4, 235-pound tackle from Algona, Iowa, has been named "Offensive Lineman of the Week" by the Irish coaching staff after his performance in Notre Dame's 35-7 triumph over Northwestern last Saturday. Seller has been a welcome surprise for Head Coach Ara Parseghian. In spring practice he took over at the tackle spot in an offensive line severely depleted by graduation. For his showing, he was named winner of a Hering Award which symbolizes outstanding play in spring ball. With the coming of fall practice, he showed no intention of giving up his hard- earned starting position and has given strong support to the offensive attack in Notre Dame's first two victories. Paul was graduated from Algona's Bishop Garrigan High School in 1963. As a prep school athlete, he lettered in both track and football, captaining the football squad during his senior year.

A MESSAGE TO OUR REPUBLICAN FRIENDS IN CASE YOU MISSED THE EDITORIAL WHICH APPEARED IN MONDAY'S REGISTER, WE ARE REPRINTED IT HERE. 10 Mon, Oct. 10, 1964 Founded in 1849 An Independent Newspaper Iowa's Soaring Economic Growth Gains made this year in Iowa's industrial growth have been remarkably impressive. The sharp increases in industrial employment, industrial output, payrolls, new plants and expansions of existing ones noted last year in the Iowa Manufacturers Association annual survey have continued this year at an even more rapid pace. This month is the I. M. A.'s "Iowa Salutes Industry" month and a good time to note economic gains. The efforts of Iowa communities, the Iowa Development Commission, the Manufacturers Association and many civio- minded citizens are described in the I. M. A. report as "really beginning to pay off." The figures certainly bear out that conclusion. Last year's growth created 11,534 new jobs, an increase of 67 per cent over the year before. This year, the number of new jobs created is estimated to be double the 1064 figure — 12,209 compared with fi,B76 in 1964. When the year's totals are complete, it is Relieved the gain in new jobs will be even greater than the present estimated figure. In terms x>[ payrolls and workers' incomes, these figures mean a gain of $110 million a year over last year and $201 million over the year before. What these gains mean fop the 200 or more communities that-haye experienced' plant expansions or 'have become the sites of new industries within the past two years is illustrated by these figures from the Economic Research Department of the U. S. Chamber of Commerce: For each 100 new workers a community gains or retains 359 residents, on the average. Personal income of the community is increased by $759,000 a year. (In Iowa this figure could be somewhat higher than the average. Iowa employers pay higher wages on the whole than those in any neighboring state except Illinois. The Illinois rate averages four cents an hour higher.) . With 100 new industrial workers, jobs are provided for 65 additional employes in other local business and service establishments. The added purchasing power can support three new retail establishments or retain that number that might otherwise be lost. Total retail sales are increased by $354,000. While these statistically measured benefits often go unobserved in a community's over-all growth, they are indicative of changes that nevertheless are taking place throughout the state as its industrial and agricultural output approaches the total of a billion dollars a month. All lowans and particularly those citizens and organizations that have been directly responsible for this yean's remarkable record have good mason to be both optimistic about the future and proud of their accomplishments.
