GRID GUESSERS CONTEST BY OLD MAN MOSE Another Criu Guessers season came to an end, with last Saturday's garneb, and the winner of the final contest was Arthur Klein of Sexton, with 19 games correct and high game total of 63. Th. high total for the week was 66, the Maryland 21- Florida State 45, ccawst. Breathing down Mr. Klein's neck was Dwight Gilbride of Algona, also with 19 right and high game guesu of 60 . He took second. In third place was Mrs. Roger Arndorter, also of Sexton, with 18 correct and a high game of 63. Our sympathy goes out to Dave Everds of Allison. He also had ii, games picked correctly, and i high game total of 63, BUT nis entry was mailed from Minneapolis (along with that of his wife), and was postmarked PM, Nov. 26 - due to the lateness of the cancelation, his entry could not be counted. Otherwise he would have tied for first, as he too had a high game of 63. One other entry had 18 right, Mrs. Arthur Klein of Sexton. And having 17 correct were Jane Fraser, Algona; Mrs. Amos Krominga, Tltonka; David Dahjhauser, West Bend; and a trio of Chrlschilles entries, Steve, Julian and Patl It was riches to rags for Roger Hansen of Fenton, with 11 games correct - lowest of the week - so he earns the Mourner's Bench spot until next fall.
