: PO EWS of the, DAV The Algona Upper DeaMoines, Algona, Iowa, Sept. 22,1936 Bulldog Eleven Opens Season ^"^ _ _— EMMETSBURG IS FOE ON FRIDAY; FANS UKE TEAM Nieman, New Back, Has Big Night—Runs Punt 85 Yards Displaying a fine brand of energy, one that defied defeat, the Algona high school Bulldogs opened their football season with a smashing—and surprising—26 to 0 victory over Llvermore, the team that defeated Algona last fall. Algona scored in every quarter, and the victory was deserved. Llv- ermore fought gamely, but was out- charged and outplayed In all departments of the game, which is no especial compliment to Algona, comparing the sizes of the communities. New Brand of Spirit But the complimentary part of the game to Algona Is the fact that the boys seemed to enjoy the game, seemed to like the impact of conflict, and kept up a steady aggressiveness that was mighty pleasing to a good-sized crowd which entered the field with skepticism, and left with praises. Teamwork was the key to the victory. The line opened up nice holes, bottled ends, and took down the secondary in a mid-season manner. And Nieman, a new halfback who came here from Clarion, ran wild on several occasions to the delight of spectators. Algona received the kickoff, and took the ball down the field on downs to a touchdown, using straight line plunges, cross bucks, and a few well directed passes. Muckey drop-kicked the goal after Nieman had plunged over, and the score was 7 to 0. Rons Punt US Yards After see-saw play in the second quarter, Nieman received a Livermore punt on his own 10-yard line and ran it back almost to the Llv- ermore goal, when brought down. Algona then failed to punch the ball over, and lost the pigskin on downs. Llvermore punted away from its goal, and Algona then proceeded to rush the ball back and Bruns went over for the tally. Muckey was rushed on his kick, which went wide. Algona 13, Uver- murao. tb» third quarter, a pat* to an was good for 40 Sards, and with Lonjr, Bruns and Nieman carrying the ball, the boys again crossed the Livermore goal. The kick was wide. Llvermore, however, came back with determination, and using lateral and shovel passes, chalked up several first downs In a row, to threaten the Bulldog goal, but did not score. Final Quarter Rally Bruns and Johnson, substitute back, led the attack in the early stages of the fourth quarter, and Lynk smashed over for a touchdown, while Muckey kicked the goal, making the count 26 to 0. Coach Berger then injected an entirely new team, most of them playing their first game, and although Llvermore swept down the field and was near a touchdown, the subs held out until the final gun. Next Friday night, the Bulldogs play Emmetsburg on the Emmetsburg; field. Starting lineup: Algona LE .

Lone Rock Lost, Won Last Week Lone Rock: The local school l.aseball team won and lost in Kames played last week. On Wednesday, Lone Rock lost to Fenlon, 7 to 2. Marlow. Ackerson and Marlow were the batteries for Lone Rock, and Alderson hurled for Fenton. The locals beat Whlttemore on Friday, by a score of 5 to 0. Swea City Nine Beats Armstrong Armstrong: The Armstrong base- bail boys lost to the Swea City high school boys' team Friday, Sept 18th, with a score of 4 to 3. Armstrong's three scores were made by Robert Fitzgibbons, David Holland and Howard Ortmeyer. The Armstrong boys were ahead for a time with the score of 2 to 0 but Swea overcame them and kept the lead. Ex-County Agent On Visit Locally From Washington G. A. Bonnstetter, former county agent of Kossuth, was back in this section for a few days last week, renewing acquaintances, and otherwise enjoying himself on a vacation. He has been in Washington, D. C., for the past 15 months, where he is connected with the agricultural section of the government Bonnstetter says that the department of agriculture's task of endeavoring to establish a modified and modern basis for future agricultural prosperity on a permanent footing is no easy lob, and we can well believe him. hMt* are BO many angles that can appear to look ridiculous when colored to the proper degree in the dally press, and so many powerful nfiuences opposing every move in behalf of the middle west, that it sometimes appears to the boys in Washington about like Goliath must have looked to David.

Brgan in Egnland The game of polo originated in England, and has since spread to all sections of the world. It requires courage, skill and stamina, on the part of both horses and riders, and provides an unusual type of thrill for spectators. Many of the ponies to take part here are from Argentina, which produces the type of animals required for this rough and tough game. Pickett Banwart . Willasson Frankl ..

Business Doubled In Local County Recorder's Office When a general merchandise store handles more business on the same overhead, that's not so much news as it is sheer good business sense. But when a county office handles almost twice as much business without any increase in cost to the taxpayer, that indeed is news. Records In the office of J. J. Dooley, county recorder, show the following increase in instruments filed during the past few years. 3931— 6*85 instruments filed. 1932— 5387 instruments filed. 1933— 6720 instruments filed. 1034—10884 instruments filed. 1935—10271 instruments filed. 1!)36— 7700 filed to date. The year 1934 ia the last one for whirh state checkers have released official record.s. and for that year after all expenses, salaries included, were paid, the local county recorder's -ifficc showed a profit ol $1,539.54.

CROWD PLEASED WITH FIRST SHOW A small but enthusiastic crowd witnessed the opening of the boxing-wrestling season In Algona, Thursday night, and got full money's worth. Net profits go to the Algona Grays for 1937. Henry Kollin, Sheldon, Iowa, appeared in two wrestling matches, one against the Masked Red Devil, and in the windup as an opponent for Frank Bauers of Swea City. Henry lost the first fall against the Red Devil, took the second, and the boys were heaving too and fro when the time limit ran out while they were trying to win the third match. Some Fancy Holds An occasional bit of biting on various parts of the anatomy helped the good cause along, and the crowd was treated to some good stuff occaslonaly, always welcomed. Don McDermott, Algona. and Bob Jackson of the Milford CCC mixed it for four rounds on a boxing program. McDermott had the CCC boy groggy in the opening round, but the latter rallied and seemed to weather the latter two rounds better than did McDermott, although the match was termed a draw. Don Harris of Armstrong and a colored lad named Burdine, alias Snowball, hit It off four of the most interesting rounds of the evening. Snowball was quite a boxer, slipping in and out of Harris' defense with ease. We suspect he could have mualed him plenty, but chose instead to make an interesting affair of it. Harris, a husky lad, would do nothing but force the fight, and gave a good account of himself. Decision a draw. Eight Round Draw Laurey Curtis, Elmore, and a young fellow from Storm Lake, named Leeland, or something like that, scrapped for eight rounds. The boys were Intent on their work and Curtis who came in like a windmill, forced the fight in spasms, while Leeland seemed on the verge of planting Curtis among the daisies a number of times, but didn't quite dig a deep enough grave, and Curtis would maneuver himself into a better position repeatedly. The match was a draw. Bauers and Kollin gave the fans what they liked to see in the final mat match. Kollin jumped on Bauers, and Bauer* jumped on Kollin, and the boys pulled hair and tweaked noses in great shape Bauers finally pinned Kollin, who afterward protested the match, and slapped Bauers down after the referee had signalled that Kollin was pinned. Good Officiating Walt Richmond handled the officiating in the ring, and did a mighty nice job. He was willing to slug with the boys, or grapple with them if necessary, and would let them alone if they behaved like nice gentlemen. Bill Becker executed the task of handling the announcements over the microphone. Leonard Nelson handled the local arrangements, and Bauers lined up the card for the evening. The opening show was good, and more of them are certain to draw larger crowds. NICE WORK! On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons, fair week, Algona haziness place* cooperated with the suggestion of the Chamber of Commerce, almost without exception, closed their doors and went to the Kossuth County Fair. The few exceptions were chiefly restaurants and filling stations where necessities of life almost forced them to remain open. General business places were all closed. United closing of this sort deserves appreciation. The purpose was to help the fair, and also to show that local firm* have no thought of attempting to commercialize the fair for their own purposes. We'd say It WM mighty nice work. Congratulations! Annual K.-H. Meet The annual meeting of K. & H.
