don 8171*% WHEN six double A teams posted wins (with four of the games cozy and the other two not) Wednesday night, the field for the 1968 Boys' State Basketball Tournament was set and play at Des Moines begins this week. Just for the heck of it, we'd like to diagnose a little and try and come up with the eventual title winner. CLASS AA looks like this: Clear Lake (21-l)-Des Moines Roosevelt (21-1); Dubuque Wahlert (19-3}-Ft. Dodge (20-2); Harlan (18-4>-Ottumwa (10-12); and Storm Lake (22-0)-Waterloo East (16-6). Now, that's a great group of clubs, with the number one and number two ranked teams (Storm Lake and Roosevelt) in opposite brackets. ANYWAY, we think the two top- ranked teams will meet in the finals — and it might go something like this: Roosevelt over Clear Lake (although we hope not), Ft. Dodge over Wahlert, Ottumwa over Harlan, and Storm Lake over East in the first round and Roosevelt over Ft. Dodge and Storm Lake over Ottumwa in the semifinals. That will set up the big meeting Saturday night - and we've got to go with Roosevelt, although we'd rather have Storm Lake take it. If they do, it will be no upset, because the teams are both great. Now, don't rush around making any bets on these predictions, because they're probably all haywire. Personally, if Clear Lake takes the crown it would satisfy us the most! SUPER Blooper - Weather forecaster: "The weather forecast for New Orleans and vicinity is partly clousy and tattered shunder towers." ENJOYED a short visit with one of our readers a couple of weeks ago - Steve Huber, an Algonan we've known for quite a few years, who made it a point to stop at the office to compliment us on our column. Steve enlisted for service in both World Wars and his ideas and ours on the cur rent dirty struggle in Vietnam are very similar. He seemed to think our statements on that conflict in the Feb. 27 issue of the UDM were especially good. Thanks, Steve, and keep reading. COUNTY Attorney Bing MacDonald and Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst have started a campaign against bad check writer sin Kossuth, which, if businessmen will cooperate, will result in a large reduction in the number of bouncers passed each year, We were very happy to be in attendance at a meeting of the Retail Bureau of the Chamber of Commerce here March 14 when they presented their program on controlling check writers. THE plan seems a good one and Bing and Ralph are serious about it. If put into effect, the,y will lose some votes in future elections, but we're sure the men and women who are accepting bad checks in greater numbers each year will be Very happy with the set-up. SUPER Blooper - Fashion commentator: "And now for the latest from the fashion world. It is good news for men. Women are not going to wear their dresses any longer. . . .this year." - ?THE sheriff and county attorney are quick to point, out that businessmen must file charges, in the form of a criminal information, and the check writer then is dealt with more severely than at present, with a fine or possible jail term staring him in the face. Such a threat should make some of the persons who insist on passing paper to think it over and stop it. In cases where the amount is under $20, a fourth offense results in a felony charge in district court. mation on the plan, I'm sure, may obtain it from either of the two men. They'd like to see the total of bad checks drop radically from the total of 361 (reported) during 1967. MARCH often comes in like a lion. The landing this year was more like a pussycat - and we hope it stays that way. Knowing that March and April can feature plenty of good old Iowa (we're not blaming Minnesota as some persons do) winter, March so far has been appreciated by most residents in this area. After all, we certainly deserve spring soon, because the Ground Hog's six weeks of winter, which started Feb. 2, ran out March 15. Let's hope the fat little furry animal was right 1 THE winter dust storms that have prevailed in this area during the past few years are likely to continue in the future, what with all the plowing and present cultivation practices in the fall of the year, according to a couple of Tuesday, March 19, 1968 Algona (la.) Upper Des Moines-3 farm specialists we've talked with. The same actions are blamed for the disappearance of pheasants. SUPER Blooper- Newscaster: "And it is the opinion of many observers that in handling the situation, Pres. Truman hit the bullseye on the nose." Union Alethecms The Union Aletheans 4-H Club meeting was held in the home of Shelly Mertz with Janice Thilges assisting on March 5. The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Beth Davies and the 4-H Pledge by Kathy Hansen. Business was to select junior and senior delegates to camp. Diane Nitchals gave a talk on "A Nutritious Milk Drink and Why." A talk was also given by Linda Nitchals on "Tips for Waitresses." Jean Ann Dodds gave a demonstration on cheese dips and drinks. The next meeting will be held in the home of Georgia Leigh with Jean Ann Dodds assisting. Heart Report ANYONE who would like infor- *S«*;*M6<5Sam;a!»^ >!«<:.
