Ten Garrigan High School football players will wind up their careers when the Bears entertain Cowrie-Prairie Vie win the season finale here this Saturday at 8 p. m. Coach Beanie Cooper's club, which with a win Saturday would finish with the finest single season record in the short history of the school, goes into the fray with a 6-1 won-lost mark, including a 47-6 rout of Austin Pacelli last Friday night. Members of the varsity squad who will be in.action for the final time ^ l lnpltide ,^'BiU Reding, quarterback, Dick Muller, end (co-captains), Jim Youngwirth, end, Bob Schmitt, tackle, Mike Grotty, guard, tackle, Gene Lickteig, halfback, Jack Dahlhauser, guard, Mark Goetz, fullback, Bill Richter, guard, and Steve Kollasch, center. In winning six of seven frays, the Bears have scored 250 points while rolling up an average of 390 yards rushing and passing each contest. Quarterback Reding and End Dick Muller stayed on the track for possible All-State consideration with outstanding play against Pacelli. And they were given plenty of help by the remainder of the 21-man squad that saw action in the contest. Muller was all over the place on offense and defense - and again made numerous tackles while on patrol, on defense? '•"•,. Reding, -w.ho. has now rushed, for 466 yards and passed for 846 more (66 completions in 109 attempts for a .605 percentage), totaling 1,312 yards in seven games, scored three touchdowns and was three-for- three in the point after depart- GRID CONTEST BY OLD MAN MOSE The ladies took two out of three cash prizes in last Saturday's Grid Guessers 1 contest, and all of them this time were from Algona. Mrs. Tom Moe, 313 W. Call St., had 18 games right, and took first. There were several with 17 correct, and the high game total became the deciding factor. The high game was 62 (Colorado State 41 - Air Force 21). Placing second was Pat Chrischilles of Algona, 17 right and a high game total of 61. In third place was Jerry Puffer, Algona, with 17 right and a high game of 60. Two other entries also had 17 correct, Barbara Baumann of Lakota (64) and Loren Hahle, Algona (67). On the Honor Roll with 16 games correct were Judy Everds, Allison, Iowa; Dr. R. R. Baldwin, Brett Bartlett, Wayne Frideres, Irving C. Tiffany, Danny Moe, Robert McAllister, all Algona; Steve Schenck, Burt; David E. Hansen, Ringsted; Arnold D. Andreasen, Minneapolis; Mrs. Arthur Klein, Sexton; Bill Dudding, Bancroft; and Mrs. George Baumann, Lakota. We note that there are an increasing number of family contests, wives versus hubbies, etc. in the current contest, and it's a lot of economical family fun to find out who REALLY knows the most about football teams. Old reliable Web Gillespie wins the spot on the Mourner's Bench, this week. He sent in his entry but failed to fill in the names of the sponsoring advertisers, thus he technically missed, all 22 games and drew a contest goose egg. But then, he's had his moments of glory, too, in previous contests; Same rules, and 22 good games were in Tuesday's tabloid. Firgt down, ten to go! " v Ledyard BB Teams Open Nov. 18 Larry Sondergaard, Ledyard's new basketball coach, is busy putting his teams through rigid practice sessions in preparation for the coming basketball season. He came to the Ledyard school ment with placekicks. He also intercepted a pass, his seventh this season, and returned another punt for a TD, which was called back. He has now run for nine TDs and passed for 13 more, while running for two extra points, kicking 11 others and passing for seven. Cooper says he is the best high school quarterback he has coached or seen in 16 years of coaching. Moving from the seniors, statistics show that fullback Jack Muller has now amassed 881 . yar^ •rushing -tiiis season (tils | first'as a ball carrier) in 1:41 ; carries for" a fine 6.2 yard average per crack. He has also been great this year and has given the Bears the type of strong running they need up the middle to keep the defense honest for Reding's passing and running. Reding has also had a pretty fair group of receivers to throw to, including Jim Youngwirth, Tom Black & Co. The finale will see the locals facing a team that is unbeaten thus far. While little is known about the team and its competition, Coach Cooper and his club are not taking the game lightly - and will, go all out to wind up the year on a sweet note. The contest will also mark Dad's Night and fathers of members of the football squad will be honored with an introduction at the field. system after school started in mid-September from South Dakota. Returning lettermen for the boys are seniors, Richard Lloyd, Roger Mayne, Arnold Johnson and juniors, Bill Johnson and Ray Govern.

Junior Varsity 26 • 18 Winner At E-Grove Algona's Junior Varsity team invaded and conquered the Eagle Grove J-V squad, Monday night, by a score of 26 to 18. The Bullpups took an early lead, saw it threatened in the second half, but pulled away with a clinching TD in the final minute when Larry Taylor scooted off his right tackle and went some 40 yards for his second score of the garmj. Greg Allen snared a pass for v the extra point. Taylor also scored the first TD on a 50-yard dash through the line, the plunge failed, and Algona led 6-0. Tim Black on a keeper added a second TD and John Chrischilles plunged for the extra point, making it 13-0. Mike Betts added the third tally of the first half for Algona. Then it was Eagle Grove's turn. A blocked Algona punt led to the Eagle TD. It 19-6 at the half. While the first half was all Algona, the second half was a reversal. An Algona fumble set up another Eagle Grove score, but the kick failed. A long pass counted the third and final Eagle TD, but the point try failed and it WMS 19-18. Then Taylor's run clinched the win. One of the most unusual plays of the game camo on an Eagle Grove punt, which bounced around while several Eagle Grove players watched it, along with Jack Waller, playing safety for Algona. The ball lay dead but there had been no whistle. The freshman back scooped it,darted between the Eagle players and was downed on the EG 15, a 3 5-yard pickup from midfield. Breaks Arm A Bancroft boy is recovering at St. Ann hospital at Algona from a broken arm. He is Joe Wollner, Jr., 14, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Wollner of Bancroft. He broke two large bones below the elbow of his right arm while playing football in a friend's backyard. Eleven Algona High School seniors (along with the rest of the squad) will attempt to close out the 1966 football season with a victory when Ihe rugged Hamplon Bulldogs come to town tomorrow (Friday) for a North Central Conference fray lhal will begin al 7:45 p. m. Coach Kellh Chrislie's crew enlers the finale with a 1-5-1 season mark fresh from acome- from-behind 7-7 tie with Eagle Grove last Friday night. The tie chopped a 4-game losing string - and a win over Hampton could put the locals al Uie top of the second division in the 8- game loop with a 2-4-1 mark. Senior members of the squad include Clint Young, guard, Max Miller, guard, Chris Conn, end, Tom Claude, end, Larry Munger, guard, Bob Farnham, fullback, Dave Camp, tackle, Steve Waller, halfback, Gregg Belts, halfback, Brocke Laws, halfback, and Dave Gerber, guard. A pass interception and lengthy return by Laws and subsequent touchdown by Betls, plus a pass from Roger Barr lo Tom Claude for the extra point, got the Bulldogs their tie with Ihe Eagles Friday. Algona's rock-ribbed defense will get a chance for a good workout Friday, because the Hampton club features Ihe lop rusher in the loop, Bob Paton. Palon's record is impressive, especially when you consider he is a member of an also-ran club. He had gained 732 yards in 111 carries, an averageof 6.6yardspercrack, prior lo Hampton's meeting, and loss, with Webster City Friday night. He held a 200-plus lead in yardage over the rest of the ball carriers in the league. He was also the top scorer until Fri* day, with nine IDs for 54 points. Christie will counter with the hard running of Randy Riedinger, Farnham, Belts and Waller. Betls led the club in- rushing against the Eagles, getting 67 yards in 14 trips for a 4.8 average. He is also the leading defender against passes and has come up with several inter- ceplions this season. Claude leads Ihe loop in pass calching. He's grabbed 16 for 197 yards so far - and would have lo gel six in the finale to set a new high for a season here (going back to the mid-forties). Jack Williams (1962) and Dale Teeter (1965) each nabbed 22 in a season. Paton and Jim Hielskov of Hampton are also rated as a pair of the top defensive football players in the loop. Claude, who played much of the first half in Ihe Eagle Grove backfield while on defense Friday, has shown this season that he is as good as any when it comes lo hard-nosed fool- ball. His play has been oul- slanding, bolh on offense and defense. Christie had hoped to be able to use senior Bill Boldridge in the last two contests, but the latler's ankle, broken in early drills, was bruised when he tried it out, so he dropped from the squad. With the exception of Boldridge and Rich Black, out all season with a broken arm, the locals should be healthy for the Hampton visit Friday. MEN'S NYLON LAMINATED FOAM JACKETS Machine Washable, too.
