Thursday night and won the right to advance to District Tournament play this week. Sentral, 95-71 winner over St. John's of Bancroft, will meet Emmetsburg at Garrigan Fieldhouse here tomorrow night (Wednesday), with the Satellites taking a 16-4 mark into the fray, while Twin Rivers, now 15-5 after a thrilling verdict over LuVerne, travels to Mason City where the Pirates will meet Dumont tomorrow night. Thompson dumped Buffalo Center, 76-72, in an overtime in the Sectional finale. St. John's finished with an 8-13 record, LuVerne wound up 17-3 and Buffalo Center 15-5. Sentral out-scored St. John's in every quarter UUt the fourth on the way to an easy win as a two- pronged offensive, consisting of Jim Geitzenauer and Ken Marlow, with 66 points between them, proved too much for the Johnnies to handle. The Satellites of Coach Bert Hanson grabbed a 23-13 lead in the first eight minutes, held the upper hand, 49-30, at halftime and ran the count to 72-48 at the three-quarter mark. Sentral managed to make good use of St. John's errors in posting the win as the winners used a pressing defense to stir up the Johnnie's passing game. Geitzenauer finished with 34 points, while Marlow notched 32, with Owen Kerber checking in with 10. The Johnnies were led by Bill Wolf with 19, Daryl Vaske 15, Dennis Hatten 14 and Terry Carpenter 12. Wolf and Carpenter were the only players who fouled out during the fray. The Twin Rivers-LuVerne meeting was just as exciting as the first get-together of the two clubs during the regular season when LuVerne came up with a 94-89 victory at Bode. This time, the score was reve'rsed as the clubs proved again they liked to hit buckets against one another. Twin Rivers grabbed an early 9-2 lead, but the Lions came on strong and knotted the count 2424 at the end of the first period. The Lions, who like the Pirates bad four men in double scoring figures at the end, had good balance on the way to a 41«-39 half- Sentral and Twin Rivers, last hopefuls from this immediate area in the running for possible berths in the Girls' State Basketball Tournament, both lost in the finals of District meets Saturday night. The Satellites lost to Pocahontas, 84-79, at Rolfe, while Twin Rivers, was dumped, 7861, by eighth-ranked Rockwell City at Ft. Dodge. As a result, Rockwell City will meet Montezuma at 1 p. m. and Pocahontas will tangle with Mediapolis at 7 p. m. in the State Meet March 13. Consolation winners Saturday night were Ayrshire, 94-57 winner over Rolfe at Rolfe, and South Hamilton with a 74-46 victory over Stratford at Ft. Dodge. Pocahontas put Sentral in a hole right at the start, and Coach Don Blanchard's club, which wound up with a 22-4 record for the season (with losses by one, two, three and five points), just couldn't catch up - although the Satellites closed the gap to three points several times during the second half. Pocahontas nabbed a 22-13 lead at the end of the first period and it was catch-up for Central from then on. By halftime, the winners led, 48-38, and it was 67-62 at the three-quarter mark. The shooting of Cindy Lockwood of the Satellites and Yvonne Almquist of Pocahontas was really something to see. Lockwood chalked up a career high of 57 points, while the quick little Pocahontas forward finished with 63. Coach Blanchard said his four guards did a great job - and that Almquist is one of the best driving forwards and quickest shooters he has ever seen. Blanchard's team will travel to Des Moines to watch action in the State Tournament March 15-16.

When Mike Christensen, tallest of the Pirates at 6-1, departed with his fifth foul, Twin Rivers had a 74-67 lead. The lead was 80-73 when Doug Nelson of the Lions slammed in three buckets and it was 80-79. With the count at 82-81, Pirates still on top, Rog Clark and Steve Bergum scored on lay-ups and Clark pitched in two free tosses to put the game on ice as four LuVerne players fouled out during the late moments.

Honored At Wesley WESLEY - Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Kunz were honored at a surprise housewarming Sunday evening, Feb. 25. They were presented a beautiful centerpiece.

A special meeting of the city council and Algona Municipal Utilities here was set for this Wednesday night during a meeting of the former body last Wednesday night - at which time a lease agreement for a possible cable TV installation will be studied. The lease agreement was originally presented to the council by Gordon Winkel, local attorney, in behalf of Eugene Faulstich, Algona TV sales and service man. After some study of the proposal earlier, it was again discussed at last Wednesday night's meeting, with Mr. Winkel again present. The council and Utilities members are expected to examine the proposal, make any changes they deem necessary and prepare the lease agreement so a possible open hearing can be held in the future. Such a hearing must be held before an agreement can be completed. Under the lease agreement setup, which lias been used in some communities, a franchise for 25 years is not granted - and there is no necessity of a vote by residents to okay it. Clarification of law controlling such installations has made the lease agreement possible where there is general acceptance in a com munity. The public hear ing is held so residents can voice their feelings on such a proposal -and such an agreement would follow the hearing. The council held a special meeting Feb. 17 to discuss overtime hours by policemen and more study of the subject is expected. During Wednesday's regular meeting, the council '—-ered into a contract witli Lystads, Inc. for rat control at the dump site. The service as signed for will cost the city $22.50 per month and the company guarantees to control the pests. A contract for a new furnace at the street department garage was let to Laing Plbg. and Htg. for a bid of $1,496.36. Other bidder was P. R. Irons Heating and Plumbing with a bid of $1,635,39. Both are local firms and it is expected the furnace will be installed in the near future. City Clerk Dave Smith was authorized to seek bids for anew truck for the street department. A 1959 Dodge, which has been used as a water wagon, will be traded in and the water tank from that truck will be retained and mounted on a present truck. The street department was also authorized to purchase 1,000 tons of chips for seal coating in the city from a Humboldt firm. Mel Sifert was authorized to attend a special school for sewage treatment plant employees, starting March 12 at Belmond; a class B beer permit was authorized for Larry's Recreation; and a request that Rich Groen, assistant police chief, be placed on a straight salary instead of the present hourly basis, was okayed and his wage set at $7,500. Groin Meeting WHITTEMORE — Alfred Schultz, manager of the Whittemore Cooperative Elevator, spent Monday and Tuesday in Chicago as a guest of Farmers Grain Dealers Association of Iowa. He was one of a group of 34 cooperative elevator managers making the trip. Schultz was selected because he is one of the managers participating in FDGA's Marketing Agreements. One of the purposes of the trip was to help the managers become more familiar with the procedure used in buying and selling future contracts at the Chicago Board of Trade.
