The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona,.Iowa, October 11, 1934 V PORTING DAY BOONETEAHIS NEXT OPPONENT OF PRO TEAM Independents Play Hard Game to Wallop Spencer Semi-Pros, 19 to 0 OOSGROVE BREAKS FOOT IN MIXUP Alqona Loses, 14-6 After Playinq Brilliant Football 8 Teams Expected in Bowling League The Algona Independents will meet the Boone Merchants here In another high powered football game next Sunday evening, starting at 7:30 o'clock. Last year Boone came here, only to lose, 19 to 7, after leading AUrona at the half, 7 to 0. The Boone team boasts a pair of the fastest and most powerful ends In state semi-pro circles, and has a better all-round team than a year ago, it Is reported. Spencer gave the local Independents » good game last Sunday evening, but was overpowered, 19 to 0, in a terrible second period onslaught which netted three touchdowns and victory. Cosgreve, sturdy Algona tackle, was removed from the game with a broken foot. He will be out of the lineup at least three weeks. Born* Over Ftrrt Burns scored the first Algona touchdown when he caught a flip from Ken Mercer and trotted over the Spencer goal. Warrington smashed through the Spencer left tackle for the second touchdown with a 15 yard plunge, and Mercer kicked the extra point. Mercer scored the third touchdown on the third of three plunges from within the five yard line. Spencer boasted of a number of mighty good football players, but Algona had the Indian sign on the boys and shaded the visitors In every department of the game. Especially, with Nordstrum and Mercer carrying the ball In the first half, did Algona tramp relentlessly Into Spencer territory. The Lineup The starting lineup for Algona Included Oatrum and Burns at end, Cosgrove and Atkinson at tackles. Martin- tic and Adams afe guard, and Moore at center. Mercer quarterbacked, Nord- etrum and Warrington were at the halves, and Young was In at fullback. Barrier and Gabrielson of Humboldt. and Bartlck of Brltt were used In backfield, and Hdgeson and McDonald afeo saw service In the line. The backfleld combination of Barrier, Gab. rtelson, Bartick and Young played the entire second half.

Former Algona Girl Wins Dramatic Praise Mrs. Don Allen of Davenport recently received high commendation for her performance in George S. Kaufman's comedy, "The Butter and Egg Man, which was put on by the Davenport Civic drama League. Mrs. Allen win be best remembered here as Miss Mildred Kresensky. The Davenport Dally Times of September 27 comments on Mrs. Allen's performance as follows: •Fanny Lehman whose part was taken by Mrs. Mildred Allen, has the funniest lines in the show, and Mrs. AI- en proved capable of making the richest use of them. In some respects her acting seemed superior to that of any one In the cast, and this was because here was no slightest flaw to find in her impersonation. She looked ana- talked, she sat and walked the part of Fanny Lehman. She almost-but not qulte-stole the show from the leading ady. Miss Mary Blanchard. who was Miss Weston, the secretary. 1 Catholic Daughter* At Wesley Ballot Wesley: The Catholic Daughters of America lodge held election of officers at their meeting Wednesday night and report the following to be reelected for the coming year: grand resent, Mrs. Clara Erdmann; vice grand, Mrs. Marie Kunz: historian, Mrs. Viola Locbig. secretary.

Haverly. Dr. Peters Beturns Bulldogs Played High Class Ball; Score on Medin- Bruns Pass PENALTY HALTS A SECOND TOUCHDOWN Burt: Dr. W. T. Peters arrived home from Washington state on Thursday an Oowan home Sunday, after being to the Gneral nned to te the previous Thursday for meaicai FACTS In buying a circulating heater, keep in mind that you are buying a HEATING SYSTEM and NOT A STOVE. A circulating heater is expected to heat the entire home by circulating moist warm air JUST LIKE A BASEMENT FURNACE—and to do the work of a furnace the circulating heater MUST BE BUILT LIKE A FUBNACE. Don't be fooled by ordinary heaters with a "jacket" built around them.- Begardless of how good they look or how low the price of such a heater might be, it is the most expensive heater you can buy. Look at it from this angle: You wouldn't expect such a heater to heat your house comfortably and stand up under the day-m and day-out abuse if you put it in your basement like a furnace. YOU JUST KNOW ^ WOULD NOT LAST. On the other hand, a "GOOD cir culating heater MUST and DOES function 3 ust the same as a basement furnace- That means if you want it to be efficient, operate economically, and last for years and years, you must make sure that it is furnace built. AND GLOBE HEATERS ARE FURNACE BUILT Nelson Hardware Playing the best football game played by an Algona high school team for the past two seasons, the BwlldORs mowed over Esthervlle high for three periods, last Friday night on the Athletic field here, and then had the misfortune to lose, 14 to 6, In the final minutes. It was a sad blow to the team and its backers, all of whom displayed plenty of enthusasm. After Algona had scored in the second period, following a 20 yard pass from Medin to Bruns. tihe Bulldogs held their opponents, who averaged 15 pounds heavier, on better than even terms. On 4-Yard Line In the final quarter, Algona was on the Esthervllle four yard line, with four downs to go for another touchdown. A penalty for holding Inflicted at this time robbed the boys of another certain tally. Esthervllle took the ball on downs, and with the aid of the wind on exchanges of punts, got within scoring distance, where a line play scored the first Esthervllle touchdown. A cross buck scored the extra point. Algona received the kick, with three minutes left to play, and after making two first downs, Estherville Intercepted an Algona pass with a few seconds to go and galloped over for a touchdown. A dropkick scored the extra point. In first downs, in play by periods, and from every other angle, Algona won the contest and deserved to, but points are what counts. Lose Two Men The contest may prove doubly unfor- unate for Algona, because Boren and Stewart, stellar linemen, received in- urles which may keep them out of the jpencer ganw, this coming Friday ev- nlng. However, Michel and Monlux, wo other linesmen, on the sidelines with injuries last week, will be back Friday night against Spencer. To single out any particular member of the Bulldog team as a star would dc njustice to his team mates. Let H suffice to say that the line from end t< end, played the best game witnessed lere for some time, and that the back' field was a driving, fighting organiza tion that went places. Bruns, after t bad crack on the head, was slowed down a bit, but "Fido" Medin arose to the oc casion and cracked off consistent gain to relieve Bruns ot his heavy ball-car vying AuUea. Alg-ona abonld Win The Spencer team is not rated as highly as some former Spencer teams, and lost to Sioux City Central. 28 to 0. The Bulldogs, If they play at Spencer as they did here last week, should bring home the bacon, and there will be a rood crowd of local fans with them to jrtng It back. HIGH SCHOOL SECONDS BEAT EMMETSBURG The high school second team defeated EmmeUburg's second team, 7 to 0, last Thursday afternoon here. John Spencer passed to Plckett for the touchdown. A return game today at Emmetsburg is to be played. IRISH GRIDDERS BEAi ACADEMY SUNDAY 26 TOO St. Joseph's, Mason City, New Foe on Local Field Sunday Afternoon St. Cecelia's academy bowed to a fighting Irish eleven from Daugherty, Sunday afternoon, 26 to 0. The lighter Daugherty team worked with a snap and precision that kept tt>e locals In hot water all afternoon, and although Bode and Batoer, veterans, played a heads up game, the other younger and less experienced members of the team had their hands full. St. Cecelia's looked better on the offense than they did against Charles City, but could not push over a score, and their opponents played lots of good football. Coach Art Nordstnun will have his hands full to whip the boys Into shape to meet St. Joseph's of Mason City, here next Sunday afternoon. St. Joseph's played a 0 to 0 tie with St. Mary's of Emmetsburg, at Emmetsburg, Sunday, and will be girded for a. victory this coming week. Baker and ThUsen made a good asslng attack for the academy, but| he team, strive as It might, was m>& Jlcklng In the manner hoped for. With notfoer game gone, however, and the xperlence thus gained stowed away, he boys should begin to pick up steam or their remaining games.
