Sportlites by Jack Gochenouer Humboldt teams faltered in a so-so week for sports. The football league leading football team was tied by third place Clarion and the crosscountry boys took a distant fourth place in the State Crosscountry Team Race. Humboldt scored first in last Friday's game on a long pass from Rick Kuhlman to Doug De- Sroldt. Kuhlman's kick for the exfra point was good for*a-'1*0* lead, but jCtarjon quickly countered with" a long' touchdown run by Junior halfback, Ron Martin. The extra point attempt was good to tie the score. With no time showing on the clock^ at the end of the first half, Doug Marso snared a last second pass, ran over a lone defender, and scored. Kuhlman's kick was blocked with the score standing 13-7. The Clarion Cowboys took advantage of, a Humboldt fumble at midfield and scored on three quick plays, but the fierce Wildcat rush tipped the placement to the right to hold the score 13-13. Clarion marched again a few plays later when Ron Martin intercepted a Humboldt pass and returned it to the Wildcat 12. The Cowboys drilled to the one yard line where they were stopped for three plays before Jack Smith, Clarion quarterback, scored by falling forward between his own left guard and tackle. The kick was good to put Clarion ahead 20-13. After the ball changed hands a few times, Doug Marso took a punt on his own 25, picked up three good blocks and sprinted 75 yards along the south sidelines for Humboldt's final TD. Kuhlman's pressure packed kick tied the game 20-20. The game ended with Clarion making an outstanding last effort for victory. In the last seconds, Humboldt was called for pass interference_and Clarion was allowed one more play, even though the clock had run out. Cowboy quarterback, Jack Smith, rifled a perfect pass to end Jerry Boyington on Humboldt's eight yard line, but Bruce Maach, outstanding Wildcat defensive halfback, nailed him immediately causing him to fumble the ball which Humboldt recovered on their own three yard line to end the game. The Wildcats were favored to cinch the conference title last Friday night, out defensive injuries and a steamed up Clarion squad forced a must win situation onto Humboldt as they faced Clear Lake in the final game of the season last night. This was a well played game for both teams. The 'Cats really deserve the conference title and I'm looking forward to a repeat of this-season next year. r y " Last Saturday the croracoun-" try team-took fourth in the State Crosscountry Team Race. Red Oak and Decorah tied for first with 21 points and Nevada had 27 for third. Humboldt's 46 put them far back in fourth place. Scoring for Humboldt were Dan Sanders, first; Ron Julius, 21st; and Dave Sheehan, 24th. Sanders ran an excellent race, winning his class with a time of 9:05. only three seconds behind that of Sioux City Centrals' ace runner, Doug Smith, who holds the state record. Congratulations are in order to Dan and the rest of the squad for the successful season that they have had. They won the State Mile Team Race, the Humboldt Invitational, and all of the dual and triangular meets. This is the fifth straight year they have been unbeaten in duals and triangulars. Today, they are at a Federation two mile meet at Ames. With this meet and last night's homecoming game, the Wildcats end a highly successful season of fall sports.

Lynn Miller has to keep both hands on the wheel of his tractor; he also has a lot of high- speed equipment. We on the Register Staff would like to extend our thanks to the boys who went to Belmond last week. We feel this proves that the boys at HHS are interested in things other than girls and having fun. They are also interested in getting out of class. Pete Reinertsen must be enjoying his life as a spook. Wouldn't it be nice if all the teachers were football coaches? Then there wouldn't be any homework assignments on week ends. Hint to last week's puzzle in Wildchat: Marc Ramled is the lapicoirp of HHS and Helium Nlvlac is a rehcaet at HHS.

Humboldt This I Believe About More & Better Jobs More and better jobs will result for lowans if a good climate for industrial development is maintained in the state. This climate was threatened by Democrats in the last legislative session through a variety of anti- industry proposals. It has •been further aggravated .by heavy tax increases TWoposed in the governor's '••'Hut study report. ' ' In addition to making Iowa's climate favorable for new and expanding Industry, the Iowa Development Commission should work more closely with local communities. Trained staff members should live In various regions of the state to work more closely with local groups. Local development will be of great help in keeping our talented young people in Iowa by providing challenging and rewarding jobs. The quality of Iowa's workers is unexcelled, but unless we make good opportunities available, we will continue to lose them. More long-range planning and a wider scope of activities by the Development Commission, are two big steps I will urge Iowa to take now.
