There were many wild shots. Algona alone had 80 tries at the basket, but cajed only seven field goals. Coach Mercer Is hopeful that his men will again begin to find the hoop. The last two games have found them missing -many baskets, although their floor work has been effective in getting the ball into scoring position. The Bulldogs have defeated Hampton, Clarion and Humboldt in conference play, and lost to Webster City, •due in part to the fact that Chuck <Jretzmeyer, star center, was handicapped by a badly injured ankle. His ankle is improving, however, and he may again reach top form against Eagle Grove. Sellstrom and Cretzmeyer were the big cogs in the Hampton victory. Summary: Algona (21) Fg Ft Pf R.

After playing the Rodman boys on fairly even terms In the first half of the basketball game Tuesday evening, the St. Cecelia team began missing the basket and passing raggedly in the second period and found the visitors leading 48 to 27 at the last whistle. Barber played a fine game of basketball for the Rodman outfit until he was removed for four personals near the end of the game. The visitors also were aided greaUy by the accurate scoring ability of H. Hllborn. Hanson played a hard, smashing game for the academy and counted 13 of the 27 points. The academy team fought bitterly to the end but appeared tired as the last half wore on. As a curtain raiser, the academy girls' team defeated the Rodman girls 24 to 19. Casey Loss refereed both games. The summary of the main game: Rodman (46) Fg Ft Pf Negro Cagers Come From Behind, Trip Boosters, 56 to 42 The Savoy Hottentots of Chicago, colored basketeers, came from behind In the last half to defeat the Algona Boosters, who had loaded up for the occasion, 56 to 42. The locals led at the end of the first half, 28 to 23. Algona loaded up for the occasion, inserting several outside players in the lineup, and these men, with the aid of the local regulars, succeeded in giving the highly touted visitors a good scrap. As might be expected, the visitors had the contest pretty well in hand whenever they wanted to put on the steam, although they were good showmen and made a game out of it most of the time. In the last period the visitors scored 20 points while the locals were scoring eight.

Cretz became worried and asked Clarence how he was to collect the stake. "Oh, If you go to When Coach Ken Mercer started his basketball season this winter and shifted Sellstrom, a veteran and star ot last year's team at forward, back to a guard position, there was some wonderment. It was natural; but In the game against Britt, Tuesday evening on the local floor, which Algona won, 39 to 22, the answer became evident. Sellstrom and Cretzmeyer at center, offer the key to Algona's offense. It was from Sellstrom's hands that a majority of the scoring plays started. After the first half had ended 20 to 17 In Algona's favor, and after the going Jiad been nip and tuck most of the way, the Bulldogs opened up in the third quarter with an attack that left Britt baffled, and Britt had won ail eight of its games thus far this season. With Cretzmeyer on the foul line, Sellstrom fed in the ball, and often received a pass back, from which a score resulted. Or perhaps it was Russ, Medin, or Shackleford or Post or Spencer. But on Sellstrom's shoulders rested the responsibility of getting that ball into the foul circle, where shots are easier to make—and he certainly came through. Medin and Spencer, although diminutive forwards, contributed some excellent passing and sharpshooting, while Cretz was alwasy a mainstay under the basket, and on the defense. Shackleford, playing a role on the team which calls for less glory from a scor- ng standpoint, was responsible for the breaking up of many a Britt advance from his guard post, and the entire tame was a pleasing one for Algona !ans.

Accord- Ing to that Clarence admits defeat but doesn't enlighten Doc In the matter of which place to meet him. A new entertainment, Impromptu, Culbertson style, was given by four high school band members at the town basketball game. Before the game the base drummer turned his drum on its side and as a table started a card game. The leader called attention and was part way through the first number before the game ended. Similar to that of a housewife who puts bridge before work. • * * Some people are finding out that the RoofevelUan regime has teeth in it. Lawrence Qillesple, a staunch republican and backer of Dickinson for president, took four two and one-half gold pieces to the bank Monday for exchange. To his surprise the bank refused to accept them until further notice from one of the higher banks. • • * While looking for news a discovery of two heads in a parked automobile was made Sunday night while the street light made them faintly discernible. They were observed half a block away and by the time the sidewalk opposite the C.T was reached the two heads had disappeared below the window of the sedan. • • * Folks pasing the Hawcott and Ogg store were treated to a scene of true friendship which death divided. The little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Sorensen was noticed by her screams Dragging a dog by its front legs from the street to the curb. Some one had run over and killed the dog. The little girl realizing that something dreadful hud happened knelt beside the dog on the icy walk, buried her head in her mittened hands and cried and cried. So pathetic was the scene that onlookers were seen to have tears in their eyes. Joe Durnlu is becoming a sleuth. Suggest he take a correspondence course. After show lunchers at the States included John Doe and his girl friend. When the two had gone Joe discovered a chair cover was also gone. Immediately Joe dispatched two understudies to follow them down the street, and look for the cover which he expected might drop from under a coat Many times these covers have been caught underneath winter coats and carried out.
