VOL. 34.—NO. 50 Cagers Bow Before Webster City LOCALS IN LEAD AT QUARTER, EOT WEREWORNDOWN Hanson and Clarion Are On Schedule For This Week Webster City high school's basketball team wore down a scrappy Algona Bulldog quint, last Friday night on the local hardwood, and rode home hilariously with a smashing second half scoring spree to ft final 39 to 10 tally. Followers of the Red and Black had hardly hoped for a victory, unless An upset occurred, and when the locals were In the lead at the end of the first quarter It was quite a pleasure, and somewhat • unexpected. Visitors Mlsied Shota Webster City gave some Idea of what might happen If their shots started to click m the first quarter. But they were unable to find the Jjoop, and with Pickett looping the ball tnrough for Algona from out In the center of the floor, the Bulldogs took a lead through the first quarter. But In the second frame the locals began to falter. Their attack slowed down and the visitors began to find the basket The score was 15 to 11 at the half, In favor of Webster City. And Then— The Deluge And In the third quarter the rangy and rugged Webster City boys turned on the heat Algona was held scoreless, while the ultimate victors sewed up the game. Shelton, big Webster City center, led his team in the scoring, and also In rough and tumble. There v-i* one or two mixups on the door that lo «';ei! like casualties might result, out nothing happened. Webster City bad a superior •earn, but whlM Algona was able to J»Rep pace, the visitor* held en edge. • The visitors' defense was a hard one to penetrate, and the margin of the game can be traced to the (act that while Algona had to resort to long shots the Webster City t«am wms able to get In for a multitude of short oaett from under rmald played a bang-up^ gfiSw for Algous, and Lynk, faced with the task of holding In check a man a bead taller than himself also did creditable work. Miller also gave a good account of himself for the evening's work. Tuesday, Algona plays Manson at Manson (tonight), and Thursday, Dec. 17, plays Clarion on the Clarion floor.

SWEAWINS2 FENTON GAMES First Team Wins, 23 to 15; Fenton Cagers Stronger Fenton: Swea City won a doubleheader in basketball last week on Tuesday night at Fenton. The sec ond team game was very one-sided with Swea winning 33° to 4. The local seconds never were In the ball game. .At the half the 'Was 22 to 2 in Swea'a favor. The Fenton first team surprised everyone and gave Swea a tough battle all the way. Swea won, however, 23-15. The locals' passing which was so weak against Seneca, looked 100 percent better and worked the ball through several times for baskets. Fenton's defense stopped Swea cold in the first half but they didn't quite have the offensive punch so were behind 7 to 4 at the half. Fenton's rally in the lead by one point was a surprise at one time. However, Swea City's smooth offense soon started clicking and pulled them out of danger. If the team keeps playing like they did Tuesday they will soon be out of th'eir slump and once again be hard to beat. Come From Behind To Defeat Fenton Lone Rock: The Lone Rock boys' busKetball teams played the Fenton teams at Fenton Friday evening. Our boya came out victorious in both games. Scores for the first team game was 28 to 17, and the second team 25 to 14. The first team boys' game was a very exciting one, as Lone Rock waa leading Fenton 12 to 0 at the half. In the third quarter two Lone Rock men, Robert Gladstone and Eugene Angus were put out on fouls, this giving the Fenton team a chance to come into the lead by about 8 points. After much hard fighting the Lone Rock boys again gained, this time staying ahead and winning the game. $ Save ThemCJ on our \|/ DECEMBER CLEAN-UP OF USED CARS We need the room: prices cut to rock-bottom: everything must go 1020 FOED EOADSTEE $60 1928 FOBD TUDOR $76 10300HEVEOLET OOUPE $125 Two 1930 CHEVROLET COACHES _—$135 1932 PLYMOUTH COACH — $160 1984 ICED TUDOE - -$315 1936 TOED TUDOE $395 1936 IWBfUDOE -$486 Kent Motor Co.

The boys won, 26 to 10, In a comparatively easy game, while the girls lost to Wesley, 39 to 26. The Wesley boys were small, but scrappy. In the second half the locals played with, a plentiful supply of subs in the lineup. Baker was not able to play because of Illness, and Barry, recovering from a bad cold, played only one quarter. Thlssen was the high point man. But the Wesley girls had the Algona girls completely outclassed (speaking of basketball only, of course), and piled up a first half lead of 31 to 12. The Algona girls came -back strong in the second half, creeping up on their opponents until the final whistle, with the game ending, 39 to 26. Game summaries: Academy (31) .

Armstrong Girls Win, Boys Lose In Thompson Battles Armstrong: The Armstrong girls' basketball teams, without the services of a first team forward, Lavon Mixell, and a first team guard, Arlene Holland, motored to Thompson Friday night, Dec. 11, and defeated the Thompson sextette, 29 to 22. In the first quarter the Armstrong girls got away to a good start and were leading 7 to 2 at the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter the Armstrong girls flopped in a great number Ji baskets to keep the lead, 17 to 10. All through the game the Armstrong girls maintained the lead and at the end of the third quarter, the Armstrong girls had 23 points to Thompson's 18. In the last quarter the girls made enough points to have the lead of 29 to 22. This waa a good defensive and offensive game on both teams and we all wonder who will win the next encounter of these two teams. In the second game the Armstrong boys suffered a defeat by the Thompson boys in a close and thrilling battle 16 to 14. In the first quarter Thompson led by two points, to 3. In the second quarter the Armstrong boya were held scoreless and Thompson was leading 9 to 3 at the half. In the third quarter, the Armstrong boys made a strong comeback but were still trailing by a few points at the third quarter. The score was 13 to 8 at the third quarter. In the last quarter the Armstrong boys were right up with them and with one minute to play Harold Mitchell, an Armstrong player, bad a chance to make two free throws which would tie the score, but failing to make these the Thompson boys won 16 to 14.
