PAGE TEN HIGH SCHOOL DEFEATED BY EMTBURGERS 'Game Walkaway for Visitors Barring .3rd Quarter. The high school football team •played one inspired quarter against Emmetsburg Saturday afternoon, here, but the rest of the game was at the mercy of the (Emmetsburg team, which won, 19-6. • N0\ Sexton Boy Rotter Skates to School A conflict in football schedules of the high school nnd St. Cecelia's academy has resulted in a change of date for the high school game this week-end. The high school will play Clarion on the local field'this afternoon at 3:15, and the academy will play Livennore here tomorrow afternoon at the same hour. The Algonians scored their six points in the third quarter, after a inarch down the field which reminded oldtimers of winning teams Of bygone days. Algona had a chance to score in the opening minutes, but couldn't put the .tall over. A poor kick from behind the goal on the part of Emmetsburg had given the 'ball to Algona on -the visitors' 12-yd. line. Algona made three yards on first play, 'but it was called back and the locals drew a 5-yd. offside penalty. Emmetsburg Scores Twice. A pass was completed, tout it gained only a few inches, and a second pass was incomplete. A third netted nearly ,15 yards, but not enough to make first down, and [Emmetsburg got the ball on downs on her own 6-yd. line. Sexton, la.—Howard Pershing Lowman, 14, never walks home from school. For that matter he-doesn't Walk to school. But Story taken from Sunday Register, and cut lent by Ilegis- ter & Tribune Co. he doesn't travel by horse, bus, motor, bicycle, or any other accepted means either. Howard roller skates — and likes it. Howard is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard Lowman Sr., who live two miles west of here. They named their son, Howard, after Gen. John Joseph iPersh- ing. The pavement on highway 18 is Howard's speedway. He skates to and from school five days a week. Until this year he walked, but with skates he found he could cover the distance to school in 20 minutes, 15 minutes less than walking time. That's the advantage. The disadvantage, he is afraid, lies in" the fact that the concrete highway is harder on roller skates than on shoe leather, for the skates he has been using a little more than a month now soon will require new wheels. Somewhat of a punster is Howard. "Do I ever fall down in my coast along during the day." school work?" he said. "No, I study hard each evening and this makes it easy to sons, sister of the (bridegroom. Mr. .Parsons, who is rf son of Mrs. .Charlotte Parsons, was graduated from the Algona high school in 1921, and he has been employed for many years at the Falkenhainer & Haggard offices. He was attended .by. Victor Samson, brother of the bride.' • . » (Following the ceremony the co- ple lef,t for Des Moines, where they spent the week-end, returning Monday nig'ht. W. T.
