The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, October 18, 1934 SPORTING MEWS bfth& DAV 7 Algona Players Injured in Spencer Fray; Officials in Fog or Blind CRIPPLED FOR GILMORE CITY'S ELEVEN, FRIDAY Spencer Held Upper Hand, But Roughness Uncalled for, Officials Poor In a rough and tumble football frame, •wherein the officials seemed to have eyes more discerning than eagks while watching Algeria's team, and a veil of film over their optics while watching Spencer, the local football team was defeated at Spencer, last Friday night, 19 to 0. Seven men from the starting lineup were forced from the game because of Injuries, one of them, Bob Post, breaking his arm, when clipped from behind and hit by three men from the front at the same .time. No penalty for the clipping. Spencer Seemed Stronger Algona makes no excuses for losing the football game. Spencer outplayed Algona, making more first downs, and playing a sharper game most of the time. But there was no excuse tar the failure of officials to give the visiting team a fair break In the contest, and there was no excuse for the very evident intent of some of the Spencer players to Inflict all the possible damage they could do Algona. Summary of the Injuries: Bob Post—broken arm from clipping by Spencer. Bobt. Ethertngton—shoulder bone torn loose from muscles. Verio Schmidt—fractured bone In his hand. Clarence Brnn»—ankle sprained and ligaments torn. George Stewart—wrenched knee. Robert Monlux—gash In leg requiring three stitches. Howard Medln—fihoulder bruised. A Patchwork Lineup The injuries mean that Algona will enter the Gttmore City game (here, Friday evening, with a patchwork lineup against a veteran team from which enly one regular of last year's squad Is missing. Ollmore City lost to Humboldt, 7 to 0, lor Its only defeat thus far. Spencer's team earned the first touchdown like good sportsmen should, by playing football. DeKoster broke through the Algona line and cut back running 60 yards for a touchdown. This was in the third quarter. A second score followed as the re- «ult of a penalty from Algona'* 14 yard im«, which put the boya bw* on their Former Algona Boy Given Proper Credit Esthervllle Vindicator: L. C. Dailey was reelecbed at a recent meeting of ,he executive board of the Clay coun- ,y fair and directors of the Spencer Chamber of Commerce as secretary of he two groups. He was given an increase of $300 in salary bringing his annual compensation up to $2700. 3ailey voluntarily took a cut when the depression came on. Dailey began his work with the vo organization eight years ago and ils salary then was more than the new figure. Spencer gives Mr. Dailey credit for the continuance of the great success that the Clay county fair has njoyed since he took his position. He has untiring energy and natural ability for looking after the Innumerable details necessary in putting such programs across. Alqona Semi-Pros Whip Boone 25 to 0; Austin Packers Invade City on Sunday one-yard line. The third touchdown was a joke. With one second left to play, according to the timekeeper himself, and the play near Algona's goal line, the Red and Black purposely were offside on four consecutive plays, preferring the penalty in the hopes of saving another touchdown. However, despite the four penalties, the officials held that the next play, a pass that scored the touchdown, was completed before the second's time was used up. Coach Mercer then called the Algona team from the field, as the officials were preparing to allow Spencer a try for the extra point, aU within the one second of time. Algona fans agreed that it was some second. Boren to Be Back Don Boren, end. who was out of the Spencer game with a Charley horse, may be able to play against Gilmore City, but all seven of the Spencer injured will be out of the contest, Post for the season, and Etherington for sev. eral weeks at least. In addition to the above facts about the contest, Sp:ncer officials refused 'to let the Algona, high band put on a parade between halves on the field, for some unknown reason, and the musicians had to be content with circling the track. Strange are the ways of competitive athletics. To the best team goes a deserved victory, but for unnoessary roughness and biased officiating there 1 can be no excuse In what was intended to be a neighborly football game. Nobody expects the boys to play drop- the handkerchief out on the turf, but sportsmanship is something -that should In building anybody's Locals Hope to Cope With Breef, Brawn of Southern Minn. Champs MERCER TO BURNS PASSING SENSATION Lichter Back in Lineup, Opens Terrific Holes; Line Yields Nothing By a score of 25 to 0, the Independent football learn of Algona continued its record of having been undefeated and of not having its goal line crossed this season, in its game with Boone Sunday evening on the local field. Next Sunday afternoon the local <team will meet the Aufcttn Packers of Austin, Minn., in what should be a highlights o fthe local grid season. The big, heavy Austin team has made an envious record and offer the best competition in southern Minnesota. What Algona can do with them remains to be seen.

A large crowd, lined along the fences, and a bleacher full of fans watched the contest against the Boone Merchants. Algona kicked to Boone, and Algona blocked a punt on the Boone 40 yard line, but was soon penalized 15 yards. An exchange of punts found Nordstrum returning trie ball to the Boone 45 yard stripe, where Algona started its first touchdown march. Near the goal, Mercer passed to Burns for the score. The kick was good, and Algona led, 7 to 0. The line was play- Ing without the services of Cosgrove, star tackle but showed plenty of drive anyway, and Lichter's addition to the backfleld was a big help. Lichter opened holes all evening through which Meroer and the other backs pounded for yards, aided by their own elusive side-stepping and clever footwork. Pan Interference At ihe start of the second period Ostrum was jostled around and a penalty WM inflicted on Boone for interfering with a pass receiver. Mercer snaked his way through for 20 yards, and Ifordfltrum followed with a nice gain. Mercer took the ball over on the next Play, but the kick was blocked. Algona 13, Boone 0. On a series of spinners, Boone came back strong and gained ground, but a fumble stopped the march, and the visitors punted. The Algona lin-e boxed in Boone and the backfleld swept around end for 20 yards. Each team then had a pass Intercepted and the half cnd- td without further scoring. Third Period Even In the third period, Alpona and Boone played on fairly even terms, the visitors seldom threatening Inside the 30 yard lirfc j , and Algona also seeming to lose momentum as it neared enemy territory. The two lines played effectively, and Moore and Adams were outstanding In the Algona forward wall. LAKOTA NEWS Mrs. C. C. Freeark was on the sick 11H the past several days.

Phone 118 The fourth quarter was a different story. Merer came back into the line, up, and the boys were off. The third touchdown was the result of a pretty 30 yard run by Mercer, who got through the line after Lichter opeiKd a pretty hole, but had to do his own dodging through the secondary, which he did with complete success. It should be added that on theso plays the Algona team made life miserable for the Boone secondary, with several men going back to take care of live Boone secondary. The prettiest play of the game was in the final minute. After driving down the field, Algona was stopped on the Boone 30 yard line. With a down kit to go, Mercer dropped back and sent a pass of about 45 yards to Burn;?, who had sped around left end and was waiting over the goal line. The ball nestled into his arms, and the score was 25 to 0. The kick was wide. Previous to this Mercer tried a field goal, but the boot was wide. Real Team—See It! Algona certainly has a fin* independent team, bolstered by several men from neighboring communities, and the Austin game should be one of the big tv- enU of the year. Don't hear about it from your neighbors, take it in yourself.

JOSEPH, 40-0 St. Cecelia Holds Well First Quarter, But is Victim of Inexperience St. Cecelia's academy football team, green and Inexperienced in a majority of positions, bowed before St. Joseph's of Mason City, on the local athletic field, Sunday afternoon, 40 to 0. The overwhelming score for Mason City gives more than a fair Idea of the difference between the two teams. Bt. Joseph's had a cktvr advantage, after the first quarter, but were not 40 points better. For Coach Art Norc'- strum's boys. It was merely a case of a team that was outweighed, and sometimes fooled, being defeated by an aggregation only a trifle better, who capitalized on all mistakes of their opponents. Play In the first quarter was in Al- gcna territory most of the time, although no scoring threatened. A pass at the opening of the second quarter scored a fluke touchdown. Without reflection on Mason City, the throw Itself wa-s an end over end toss, that luckily nestled into somebody's arms, quite by accident. The kick was blocked by an Algona lineman. Make Futile Drive Algona received the next klckoff and marched down the field 30 yards while St. Joseph's took time out. Bode and LIchter had been leading this advance. A lateral on the next play, however, was intercepted, and Mason City recovered. It was the last scoring threat of the afternoon for Algona. Mason City recovered a fumbled punt by Bode on Algona's 10 yard line, and went over to a second tally. The try or point, a kick, hit Selzcr in the nose as he rushed in to block the boot, but 4tgona Was offside, and the point ounted. The half ended with Mason City ahead, 13 to 0.

Algona received the klcfcon, but punted and St. Joseph's drove down the field, using rlcky reverses that fooled St. Cecelia time and again, for big gains. The plunge for extra point was no good. Baker and Selpman made heroic efforts to stop Uie onslaught, as did Bode Lichter and several others. All the boys were trying, but it takes a little seasoning to make good football players and a few good breaks to win, and St. Cecelia seemed to lack both. The third quarter ended with Algona trailing, 2fl to 0, and two more scores went over in the final period. The final touchdown was the result of a 65- yard run by a St. Joseph back.
