BREAK RULES; 3 STARS LOST TO CAGE TEAM And Algona High Loses to Manson, 18-17, in Dizzy Finish Failure to keep training regulations bounced three first string men from the Algona high school basketball squad, Tuesday afternoon, and Tuesday evening the revamped team made a desperate effort to win against Manson, but lost, 18 to 17. The players who came under the decree of Coach Ken Mercer are Dick Post, star forward and veteran. George Stewart, center, and Clarence Bruns, another star veteran, and a guard. Whether or not the coach's order might be rescinded was not stated, but it was certain that they were no>i in uniform, Tuesday night. BMkc* hew lineup foiling to win the ball game against Manson. First of all, they couldn't hit the oM basket for sour apples. Fldo Medin, usually a crack shot, failed to tally at all, and Post missed at least ten setup shots from inside the foul circle. But that happens, even on college teams, and the boys played pretty good, considering the hasty Juggling cf the lineup at the last minute. Another bad defect, was the team's Inability to start 'the ball down the floor In a hurry. The boys carried the leather gently to the center of the floor as much as to say, "Well, visitors, if vou're ready we'll romencc,' 1 and n, tight knit zone defense by Manson kept Algona from getting inside the foul circle, except toward the end of the third period and in the fourth quarter, when they relaxed. Tied at Half To say that Bruns. Stewart and Post were missed, would be to pat, it mild Jy. But observance of ru,le» Is something for which no exceptions can bi- made. We hone things get patched up to the satisfaction of the school, how- evt-r. The score at the half was tied, eight all, and in the third quar'er. Manson pulled ahead, 13 to 11. The fourth quarter found Po-t out on fouls, and Manson pulled six points ahead, only to have that lead whittled to a point as the game ended. Next Friday the team plays Humboldt at Humboldt, In a North Central conference game. | Summary: Algona (17) fg ft I'f Hanegan, f 2 0 1 Medin, f 0 0 1 Schultz, c 2 0 1 Post, g a o i Boettcher, g 1 0 ° Lynk, f 1 ! °' Boren. f 0 ° u Christmas at the Churches] Presbyterian Church Rev.
