The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, Jan. 18,1934 Bulldog Cagers, Suffering First Defeat, Set to Trip Hampton 31-21 DEFEAT AT WEBSTER CITY IS FIRST OF SEASON is But High School Quint Ready to Regain Loop Lead The Algona Bulldogs, smarting from their first defeat of the season on Tuesday night at the hands of Webeter City, will attempt to avenge the Tuesday game at the expense of Hampton, here, Friday evening. Webster City let the local boys down, on the Webster City court, 31 to 21. Chuck Cretemeyer, star Algona ctnter, Injured his ankle in practice the day before the Webster City game, and was tampered as a result, many short shots which would ordinarily have gone for baskets being missed. Webster City possessed a rangy team, one which overshadowed Sellstrom and Medln, two of the king pins in Coach .Mercer's aggregation, but not until the third -quarter was Algona definitely out of the running. The score at the hajf was 13 to 12 In favor of Webster City, and at the end of the third quarter •It was- 23 t« 14, Algorm wiring only one Beld goal. The boys came back in the last quarter holding Webster City on even terms, but It was a bad third period that spilled the beans. Hampton Is coming here with an ordinary aggregation, one which Algona should at least be on even terms {according to pre-game dope. Cretzmey- cr's ankle should be improved, and ii he is in top form, Algona may reach Its old form. The locals are rated among the strongest of the quints in the North Central conference.

Playing before the largest crowd that ever witnessed a regular high school game on the Lone . Rock floor, the Lone Rock boys played I their best game of the season. Lone ' Rock grabbed an early lead and led 7 to 8 at the end of the first quarter. At the half the lead was Increased to 15 to 11. The Fenton boys threw a fcare Into Lone Rock during the third quarter os they rallied and trailed only 17 to 13 as the quarter closed. Lone Rock scored two baskets in quick order as the final quarter started. Another last minute spurt increased Lone Rock's lead 28 to 18 As the game ended. Titonfca 22, Seneca 20 Seneca and TItonka staged another thriller. In the game between these teams earlier in the season it was necessary to play two overtime periods to decide the Issue. This time Tfton- ka was able to win in the regular playing period by the score of 22 to 20. Split Even Ledyard again tried the iron man stunt by tackling both St. John's and the high school teams at Bancroft This time they were not quite so Sue- cessful as earlier In the season. Ledyard lost to St. John's but won their conference game with Bancroft high school 25 to 11. Lone Rook game should be a close scrap, inasmuch as Seneca is one of the two teams that have been able to defeat Lone Rock this year, and Lone Rock will be out to even the count. The Lone Rock girls will also be attempting to gain a first place tie with the Seneca girls.

Humboldt grabbed an early lead, be. Ing ahead 9 to 6 at the quarter, but Algona (printed ahead, 14 to 12 at the half. The third quarter was Algona's "biff PWJodi with the Bulldogs digging in for many Sfwitejfl and a 89 to 19 lead. Substitutions made near th« end of th« game allowed a little scoring, and the final waa 37 to M. with the Algona subs playing Humboldt on even terms. The game was rough enough for anyone, with each team tallying 18 personal fouls, and two men on each team getting ejected with four personals. Chuck Cretzmeyer and Sellstrom shared honors. Sellstrom was one of the leading scorers last year, fans will ' recall, but has not been netting quite as many points this season. This is accounted for by the fact that he is playing guard Instead of a forward po- eition, as was the case last year. He looped five' field goals, however, against Humboldt. Shackleford, Poet and Medin all aided greatly in the victory. Pictured above are the members of the Chicago Hottentot, basketball team, traveling eolnml ongfrs, who will tangle with the Algona Boosters on the high school gym floor, Monday evening. From all indications, nnd Judging from the victories of the Hottentots, they possess the best basketball team to visit Algona in a many a moon. Chicago Hottentots, Negro Quint, Plays Here Monday Joe Lillard, Ex-Mason City, Oregon U. and Pro Athlete is Captain May the Algona Boosters have the rods of fate on their side, next Monday evening In the high school gym. They will need them, for they are gong up against what has undoubtedly x?en the fastest semi-pro basketball earn to come to Algona in several ears, the Chicago Hottentots, all-col- red aggregation. And that Is not mere ballyhoo. The Hottentots defeated the Spencer Mer- hants, 31 to 28, several weeks ago. Naturally, with such fast compett- lon waiting for them, the Boosters mve strengthened up their lineup. At his early writing it is not possible to ay just who the additions will be, but we have been assured by the team management that at least two addl- ions will be made to the present line- IP In an effort to give the colored boys good contest. Lfflard Captain "Smoky Joe" Lillard, captain and guard of the Hottentot quint, is a, !ormer Mason City athlete, played •with. Jie University of Oregon in 1931, and :hen with the Chicago Cardinals of the national pro football league. He finished his prep work in 1923 at Mason City. At Oregon he played in five fames and was being referred to as Jle "Black Ernie Nevers" when the eligibility hounds caught up with him and flnkhect him off. Thfl KotientfitS &f£ famed for thetf smooth ball handling and accurate shooting, and further will offer a beau- Ifullly developed guarding game, one that most Big Ten aggregations would ike to possess. The game Is slated to start at 8 p. m- and a large turnout Is hoped for. Basketball fans will get a glimpse of one of the Uest basketball quints in th« country, wb&offer plenty of amusement, as well as basketball. The usual admission price will be charged.

Except Sunday Station WUO-WOC Bananas, 4 Ibs. 22c New Cabbage, Ib. 5c Their team may not be quite as mooth as last year or the year elore, but the boys can still bang the old ball around, and zip the bas- et between the hoop, when occasion .emands. They defeated the Algona Soosters, last Thursday night, 44 to 30, despite a great last quarter rally by Algona. Anderson was high point man. He ooked equally as good as Delm, whom he succeeded on the team, and who will be remembered as one of last year's Swea City stars. And that's saying a lot. The entire Swea City team had a fast passing attack and deadly accuracy wh«n within throwing range. Algona again had trouble locating the hoop. Many shots went wide, for no particular reason, and the boys were a little lax about following In, but even had a fair average of chances in first three quarters gone in. the score would have been closer. In the last quarter Algona clicked for a few minutes and pulled within a few baskets of the Cardinals, who knowing that they had the game in the bag, were taking things easy. The score at the half was 23 to 11, after the first quarter had been fairly close. Jennings, Livermore star, was one of the youngest players on the floor, but was a spark plug in the offense along with Pearson and Walker.

Bancroft Academy Cagers Take 50-7 Victory on Sunday The Bancroft academy basketball team upheld the prestige of the north end of the county, last Sunday afternoon, on the local court, at the expense of the St. Cecelia academy team, by defeating the locals, SO to 7. The game was all Bancroft, and plenty of personal fouls added to the excitement. At hall time Bancroft was ahead, 27 to 3. The visitors seemed to have caught St. Cecelia off balance, as was the case with Iowa at Minnesota last week, while Bancroft itself was Just right. Tills is in no way detracts from the Bancroft victory; the boys were playing superior basketball, and earned what they got, but St. Cecelia's was not up to par. The academy seconds haa better luck, winning over Bancrolt seconds, 40 to 15. St. Cecelia's will journey to Port Dodge, Friday night, where thu boys will meet the Sacred Heart (jui: it.
