*~Alfltft« (la.) Upp»r DM Molnftt thwridoy, Mcireh 7, 1968 ACTION A basketball game between the freshmen second string and the sophomore's second team was held last week in the local gym. The sophs won 33-32. The game was sparked by the razzle-dazzle playing of "Leroi" Rogert, sophomore, as well as Randy Lauck, Wayne Petersen and John Hedlund. The frosh had a few of their own stars, too. They were Dan Smith, Steve Armstrong, Alan Ross and Neal Leek. The two coaches who reffed were Mr. Kueck and Mr. Simpson. - o - The faculty got together and formed a committee to boost AHS janitor Robert Devine for Most Eligible Bachelor in Algona. It didn't work, however, as Mr. David Reab collected the most votes ... .it must have been Randy Rogert's eight votes that did it! - o - AFS (American Field Service) had its annual assembly program last Wednesday. Foreign exchange student Ian Davison was guest speaker. Slides were shown until something went wrong with the projector and the program was discontinued. Anyway, it was fun looking at the slides upside down. - o - Seniors voted on their class motto: "The world steps aside to let any man pass who knows where he is going". . . .a clever one, indeed 1 Pep buses took students to the state wrestling tournament last weekend at Waterloo. The sleepiness of many was shown in the morning on their faces but as the day wore on they livened up. A few girls brought suitcases full of games, food, etc. The biggest fad that seemed to bring enjoyment was the playing of cards. This went on during the short period of a blizzard after passing through Humboldt. The goat bus, driven by "happy Jack" had to wait for the other bus at Clarion so it wouldn't get lost. - o Finally ' the buses made it to Waterloo for the semi-finals. Students bought tickets in advance (cost - $1.00 for both sessions) and found themselves a seat. Oh, yesl Before going to the first session, they all stopped at Henry's Drive-in for a noon meal. - o The cheerleaders should be given credit for saving seats for the Algona fans. Not all fans got a seat but they did the best they could. - o After an exciting afternoon of watching wrestling, the fans left for a quick lunch and the students went back to the bus for their sack lunches. But not all brought lunches so they hiked to a nearby gas station and bought groceries. - o The wrestling finals started at 6:30 that evening and people were there at least from 4:15 on to get in. At 5 p.m. McElroy Auditorium was at full capacity and people were still coming in. - o - When the wrestlers from the various towns came onto the mats to warm up, their loyal fans cheered mightily. WhenAlgona's mighty five came out, the whole auditorium shook and that really got AHS fans fired up. - o - Those who did most of the firing were Tim Black, Brad Farnham and Greg Allen. These guys got everyone yelling and saying cheers! Then Brad suggested a special cheer where everyone stands and when given a signal yells "Yeah" for about 5 or 6 seconds. Algona was the main attraction before the wrestling got started. - o - One of the AHS students who didn't get a seat, used a pass and a camera (with no film in it), went into the wrestling area and watched the meet. Yes, you're right. It was Mark Olson! - o - But besides all those happenings, there were five AHS grapplers getting a second place in Class A competition. Algona High is really proud of them and next year it will be CLASS "A" CHAMPIONS! !

"And their sins and inequities will I remember no more. " — Jeremiah 31:33 There is forgiveness. Without it there would be no promise of salvation. In the agony of death, Christ was forgiving. It is often difficult to be forgiving. It is the nature of mankind to react when offended, to strike back, to return hurt for hurt. And, for some of us, forgiving is a public gesture, something for show. As they say, "we forgive, but we do not forget." Many of us would be lost forever if one false step completely ruled out the promise of eternal salvation. We are human beings and, therefore, we are far from perfect. We need to be as quick to forgive others as we are to excuse our own transgressions. This is the Christian way. This is according to the examples set down for us in 'hp life of Christ upon earth.

Protect your future with new ORTHO Bux, the practically ordorless ounce of prevention that comes in a 50-lb. bag. There's no resistin' it. PLACE YOUR ORDER NOW! Hero's good news for you at a time when chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides are having their problems holding the fort. ORTHO HL'X is the non-phosphate granular insecticide you've read about in the magazines. Specifically, It's a carbamate. Technically, DUX acts as an inhibitor of the muscular system of the corn root worm. In a nutshell, this means ORTHO BUX concentrates on corn rootworm larvae. You apply it in the spring to form a zone of protection during (he time larvae are present at their destructive work. Naturally, getting the larvae also means a reduction of adult beetles. So in addition to effective root protection, damage to the corn silks can be reduced. ORTIIO BUX is marketed in 50-lh, bags. Thi-iT's nothing better for getting rid of what you ran't see that can hurt you. FENTON CO-OP ELEVATOR
