AHS Grapplers Host 7 Fine Teams Saturday Eight teams, double the field a year ago, will participate lit the second annual Algona Invitational Wrestling Tournament in the high school gym here this Saturday. Sessions will begin at 12:30 and 7 p. m., with only varcity wrestlers slated to compete. Teams, besides Algona invited are Ames, Ankeny, Clear Lake, Hawarden, New Hampton, Perry and Rockwell City. Algona, New Hampton, Perry and Rockwell City made up the four-team field in 1965, with Algona taking the meet title as five members of Coach Champ Martin's team won individual crowns. The night before the Invitational, the Bulldogs will host Humboldt in a North Central Conference dual meet. A year ago, Algona outlasted the Wildcats to post a 21-17 victory at Humboldt. According to advance information on the Invitational, the field here Saturday will be a good one. And the teams are invited from a larger area than any other Invitational in this vicinity this year. Split For Two Junior High Teams Monday Algona's junior high basketball teams split a pair of games with Brltt here Monday afternoon. The seventh graders dropped a 23-18 verdict, while the eighth grade posted a 37-31 win. The seventh grade's loss gave Coach Art Olson's club a 1-1 record. The locals led, 7-6, at halftlme and were led in scoring by John Durant with six points, Scott Voyles, 5, and Tim Cubit, 4. Eighth grade Coach Allan Kniep used more than a dozen boys in fashioning a rather easy win. The locals grabbed a 19-3 first quarter lead and were ahead at the three-quarter mark, 37-20. Rick Nielsen canned 14 points, Neal O'Brien and Gary Jones seven each 10-AI0ono, (la.) Upper Dei Molnei Thurtday, D*e. 8, 1966 Another Two Game Weekend For Bears Garrigan's Golden Bears, 8274 losers to Ft. Dodge High in the season opener, served notice on the rest of this area that they are one of the toughest clubs around with a pair of wins last weekend, downing Bancroft St. Johns', 80-49, and Spencer, 8153. The wins gave Coach Steve McCall's outfit a 2-1 season mark and set up meetings with Newman of Mason City here Friday night and at Pocahontas with Catholic the following evening. Newman and Catholic have impressed observers this year. The Mason City team recently downed St. Edmond to prove it Is a capable club. McCalTs team has three men averaging more than 15 points McCall said his team's defensive play against Spencer was the best this season - and the out-shooting of Reding and LaBarre served to open up the offense. Algona's Bulldogs, fresh from a pair of North Central Conference wins last weekend (over Humboldt 82-50 and Webster City, 52-48) and riding the crest of a 4-0 mark so far this season, play only once this week— but that one should be a dandy. Coach Howie Stephenson's club, leading the loop with a 3-0 mark, meets the team that is right on its heels - Hampton — and the winner of Friday night's game at Hampton will lead the conference all alone. Hampton has a 2-0 loop record at present. 6 Teams Form Intramural A.H.S. Cage Loop Intramural basketball is underway at Algona High School under the direction of Jerry Payne, A.H.S. instructor.

Danielsen, Lester Brlggs, Mike Dreyer, Dean Meyer, and Gary Schultz. Paul Seller - Ail-American Algeria's Paul Seller, regular offensive tackle on Notre Dame's National Champion football team this fall, reached heights never before attained by an area grldder this week when he was named to the Second Offensive Team of The Sporting News. Seller, a regular star performer at Garrigan High School here for Coach Beanie Cooper prior to his graduation in 1963, played practically every minute on offense this year for the Fighting Irish as they posted a 9-0-1 record. Four other Notre Dame regulars were selected on The Sporting News offensive and defensive first teams arid two others besides Seller were named to the second team All-America. And to top it all off, Ara Parseghian, Notre Dame's head coach, was selected as Coach of the Year in the same publication. The Sporting News selections are by the directors of player personnel of the American and National Football leagues - and are thus highly rated each year as being tops. TUESDAY B.B.

Accutron does not use these parts. Instead, a tiny tuning fork keeps tima through vibrations that are battery powered. Accutron time is so precise that we guarantee* average monthly accuracy within 60 seconds, which averages out to about 2 seconds a day. And we know owners who have not gained or lost this in a year. However, don't let this make you think that Accutron prices are higher than a fine watch. (Remember, a lot of parts were left out.)

If the LuVerne community and surrounding area can raise that amount of money! with 75% of it in cash by Feb. 1, and the other 25% pledged by that date, the state-federal grant of $21,200 will be assured, and also a $10,000 grant from the Kinney- Lindstrom Foundation. This leaves only the lesser amount of $8,800 for the LuVerne area to subscribe.

History Group Interested In Legion Hall A proposal by the Kossuth County Historical Society to ac- quite the present Legion hall in Algona was brought before the board of the Society Nov. 30 and received unanimous approval. A committee was authorized to negotiate with the Legion and attempt to work out ways and means for the possible pur- The present asking price for the Legion building is $10,000. The Society's interest In the building lies in the fact It hat outgrown its present facilities In rooms over the S 4 L store and the upstairs location, which has been visited by many, many persons, is difficult for some to reach. There's certainly historical value in the Legion building. It was built in 1867 and served as the first community school P O, Hour* Postmaster Ed Farrell of the Algona Post Office announced that the windows would be open all day Saturday, Dec. 10, to enable local patrons to complete their Christmas mailings.
