Bears Run String To 13 With 56-53 Victory Over Newman Garrlgan's Golden Bears fought off a last-minute challenge at Mason City Newman Tuesday night, came through with a 56-53 victory and kept the school's longest winning streak In history going with their 13th straight victory of the current campaign. Coach Steve McCall's club, now 13-1 for the season, will meet Carroll Kuemper, a real rugged outfit, for the second time in six days when the Knights come to town this Saturday evening. Garrigan downed Kuemper", 153-50, last Sunday night to win the Diocesan title at Sioux City and will be out to repeat the performance for win number 14. Coach McCall said his club was "flat" in the Newman contest, coming up with numerous errors that hurt the offense. Shooting was off during the first half - but the locals came back, hit better after the intermission and finished with 34 percent accuracy. The defensive play of the Bears was good, except for the final three minutes when Newman narrowly missed pulling the game out of the fire. With three minutes of play remaining, the locals held the upper hand, 52-39, but the home club finished with a rush. Newman set up a zone defense against the Bears and literally dared them to fire away. Gar- rlgan did fire, too, but the ball didn't go In very often and as a result the locals were ahead, 10-9, at the quarter and down 29-25 at halftlme. The locals went to work in the third stanza, and led by the 9-polnt firing of Bill Reding, managed a 43-37 lead at the buzzer. In the final period, Coach McCall's crew used its stall offense to advantage, with most buckets coming on lay-ups as the 52-39 lead was fashioned. Then came Newman's final spurt which fell short. Defensively, the Bears picked up 17 steals - more than enough to stall the Newman offense repeatedly - but under the boards It was a different story. The timing was way off and as a result, Garrlgan got only 28 rebounds, with Dick Muller nabbing 11, Jack Muller eight and Reding six. During the heavy going In the final stanza, Joe Becker, who canned 14 points, was hit accidentally In the mouth. He remained In the game, but had three stitches taken by a doctor here after the club returned home. Reding topped the scoring for the Bears with 21 points as he and Becker were the only pair In double figures during the fray. Jim Sallee tossed In 26 and Rich Wolf canned 15 for the losers. According to Coach McCall, the officiating was the best his club has had all season - and he lamented the fact the two teams didn't play well. Dick Muller, the school's all- time career scoring leader upped his total 797, and Reding, who Is now second In the all-time list, now has 706 career points. Meanwhile, the team seems destined to become the wlnnlngest In the school's history, also. With a minimum of five games left, four wins will shatter the mark. Newman's record is now 4-10, with two of the losses to the Bears. Box score: Garrigan(56) FG FT F Becker J. Muller D. Muller Reding LaBarre Young wirth Courtney Newman (53) R.

The UFO was first sighted by Mrs. Tom Dietrich shortly after 3 p. m. Friday. She called her husband and the pair watched the object for almost 10 minutes. Mrs. Dietrich said the object remained stationary the entire time and appeared to be hovering directly over the yard light of the Harold Wood farm a mile away. Mrs. Dietrich said the object looked like a star but that it revolved with red and white lights. The red light was predominant, Mrs. Dietrich said she went into her house to phone Mrs. Wood and at that exact time the object began to move off over the horizon. Mrs. Wood hurried out of her house and saw the object moving off to the southwest, she reported. She said it was already about a mile away. She reported "it was still large enough to see that it was round and that it was going around." She described it as a brilliant red that turned white as it revolved. Mrs. Wood said another neighbor, Mrs. Charles Pohl, reported seeing three cars parked along the road with the occupants looking at something in the sky. Mrs. Pohl said she did not see the UFO. Mrs. Dietrich said she couldn't "say for a fact" the object was a flying saucer. It might have been a helicopter "but there was no motor noise at all and helicopters are noisy."
