DODGE NEXT The fast traveling Algona Academy basketball team defeated the powerful Pocahontas Academy quint last Tuesday evening by a score of 24 to 22, in one of the most thrilling games seen on the local floor in the last few years. The Algona boys, trailing by six points, going Into the last quarter, staged a great rally to take the lead midway in the period, and hold it to the end of the game. The game started slowly, both teams playing cautious basketball The first quarter ended 4 to 2 in favor of Pocahontas and at the half the Algona boys still trailed 10-8. Going into the last quarter with the score 17-11 against them the locals began their rally. Barry drove in hard for a short shot, Seipman connected with a long one and Thlssen scored on a* rebound to tie at 17 all. At this stage of the game the large crowd was in an uproar. Svedja of Pocahontas again put Ms team Into the lead with a nice shot from the foul line, but Barry, Selpmann and Thlssen scored again this time to take a lead which was well guarded to the end of the game. This was only the second defeat for Pocahontas outfit in eleven games and the seventh consecutive victory for the Algona Academy boys. The local second team won their fifth consecutive game, defeating the Pocahontas second 3620. Last Friday evening the Academy boys defeated Wesley high 60-10, while the girls lost 36-20. Friday night the Academy meets Bancroft, and next Tuesday evening the Sacred Heart quint of Fort Dodge. Both of these games will be played on the Algona floor and begin at 7:30. The Ft.

Seconds Salvage Victory In Other Game; Eagles Here Friday LONE ROCK WINS FROM FENTON; IS RATED AS'TOPS' Has North Half Title Clinched by 29 to 21 Win Alumni Losing Art at Ottosen Ottosen: The alumni girls' and boys' baaketball teams played tylgh school teams, Saturday evening.

The Ottosen high school basketball team play West Bend here, Friday, Jan. 22. Swea City, perennial upsetter of basketball applecarts, upset another one in the Algona high school gym, Tuesday night, when the lads from the north end came down here and defeated the high school quint, 18 to 7, and wouldn't even let Algona sink a field goal during the entire game. Of course, it wasn't entirely Swea City's fault. The Bulldogs still can't find the basket, and Coach Flndley will probably be bald or grey-headed before the season is over if the boys don't locate It soon. Now Swea City, aa well known locally, is always a basketball stronghold. But just about the time you figure maybe they've graduated their hot-shots, along come the little brothers, and maybe they're even better than their elders. It's just a case of one good team after another. Not that Swea looked too good; they didn't. But they didn't have to look very good to win the game, and after holding a 7 to 3 lead at the half, they just naturally coasted along in a final victory. Well, some day, perhaps, the Hanlfans and the Krumms and the Schulers will be missing from the lineup, and then, well, they'll probably have somebody just as good K'rls' I or better. What we'd like to know • is—how do you do it, fellows? This coming Friday evening the Eagle Grove Eagles will come to Algona to attempt to even up things for the football stinging they took last fall. We'll tell you more about that later. In the meantime, Coach Findley and the boys are out using a compass and square to get that basket located right, this time. First Team Game Algona (7) Swea City (18) Fenton: Fenton high's cagers met their sixth straight defeat last Friday night at the hands of Lone Rock, the leading contender for the western half of the North Kossuth conference. Unofficially, Lone Rock has this half of the conference cinched, needing only a victory over Hurt to make a clean sweep of the conference. The second team was defeated by one of the best second teams seen around here in many a year. The score was 43 to 26 in Lone Rock's favor. Blanchard and Marlow stood out for Lone Rock, govern ing 16 and 17 points respectively. Gramenz and Huskamp were Fenton's best bets. The Fenton first team was beaten by a close margin all but In the first game of the year, and put up another game fight but all in vain, as they went down to defeat, 29 to 21. The boys had the size, ability and plenty of fight, but they did not have the scoring power It seems they should have. Ackerson and Hollister each scored 10 points to lead Lone Rock. Alderson garnered nine points for Fenton, while LindRey's floor play brought the ball in for many shots at the hoop.

Party at ACADEMY HALL Cards—Lunch—Dance 35c A Message To The Men of Algona Who Own Their Homes In every home there are always odd jobs to be done (if you don't know about them, your wife can tell you)— —fixing a door or window —a little paint job / —putting up a shelf —putting in a hardwood floor etc., etc. Many of these little jobs you can do yourself, if you like to work with tools, and have a lot of fun doing it. If the job is more than you want to tackle with your limited spare time, then a good carpenter is easier to get now than he will be a little later. Our point is that all such inside jobs of repairs or tixing up should be taken care of now while outside work IK not so pleasant. If you need any materials for these jobs— lumber of any kind, paint, etc., we shall be glad to help you figure out 'how much you need and furnish them. Our prices arc always reasonable. L F. S.
