Section Two. TO m S- ««h THE REPUBLICAN. 88th TEAR ««h TEAR ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 22,1930 VOL. 28—NO. ID CLEAR LAKE LOST TO ALGONA 20-0 Bulldogs Defeated Lions at Athletic Park Last Friday in Football Game. LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL PLAYED GEEAT GAME. Team Greatly Improved Since Mason City Game and Showed Lots of Spirit and Fight. The Algona high school football team finally crashed through with a smash ing game last Friday afternoon at the Athletic Park and decisively defeated the Clear Lake Lions by a score o 20 to 0. This was their first win having tied one and lost two games. The day was almost too chilly for footbal and there were occasional flurries o: snow but the locals were in there for t win and did not mind the cold, in fact they were playing so hard that they had no time to think of the cold. Algona scored right at the beginning of the game after they had kicked over Clear Lake's goal line. The ball was put in play in Clear Lake's possession on the 20 yard marker. The visitors fumbled but recovered on their own 5 yard line and punted on the next play to Samp on their 18 yard stripe. On the next play Samp took the ball over for a touchdown. Ostrum failed to kick goal. Score 6 to 0 in favor of Algona. The next counter was made in the first part of the third quarter. Algona had the ball on about the Clear Lake 30 or 40 yard line and Blossom, quarterback for Algona, cut loose with a beautiful pass to Samp who went over for a touchdown. Ostrum converted the goal by a dropkick, making the score 13 to 0 in favor of the Bulldogs. Algona scored again in the opening of the fourth quarter when the locals recovered a fumble on their own 40 yard line. They punted and Clear Lake fumbled and Algona recovered on the visitors' 38 yard line. Through a series of line plays and end runs Algona worked the ball down to the 4 yard line. They were then penalized five yards for having a back in motion, putting the ball on the nine yard line. Two smashes were all that was needed and Parsons, Algona fullback, crashed over the line for a touchdown. Blossom kicked goal and score was Clear Lake 0 an Algona 0, where it remained "Lake and Algona 20, where It remained The Algona team was greatly improved from the team which played Mason City a week ago. They were in there flg-htinlg all tjie fcimte against Clear Lake whereas at Mason City they lacked the old pepper which is necessary to make a football team. The backfield gave good interference and were adept at breaking up forward passes. When they took the ball every back looked like he meant to get someplace in the fastest time. The line on defense used their hands and the visitors found the going very tough. The local boys made some spectacular tackles and kept the Lions from making any long gains. Clear Lake fought hard but was outclassed in every department of the game except maybe in punting. The game was clean all the way through only a few penalties were made and those for offsides. The crowd was fair but it probably would hove been much larger if the weather had stayed any where near warm. Abandoned Buick Found Near Burl. Monitor: Floyd Gibbons, local garage man, driving out to Union Slough Sunday morning about eight-thirty, discovered an abandoned Buick coupe on the side road east of the D. T. Hobson farm along by the Tony Anderson farm now occupied by George Boettcher. As the car was still there by eleven o'clock, Floyd brought it into the garage and notified local and county officers. The car is a 1927 model, in good shape. The license plates had been pulled off and there was no driver's licensed displayed or other marks of identification. A business card of a Waterloo Plymouth distributor, with the name F. F. Wheeler in the corner, was found in the car, but this probably has no connection with the owner. The car was out of gasoline and something went wrong with the gas tank. There were evidences that the driver or associates had been feeding gasoline into the vacuum feed by hand. The machine was driven off the road, partly into a plowed field, the wire gate being opened. The engine number, stamped on the engine at the factory, was not disturbed, and the sheriff's office is endeavoring to trace ownership through this lead. An abandoned car such as this usually means a "hot',' or stolen machine. The theft of Dr. Andrews' car in Algona Saturday night is thought to have a possible connection with the abandonment of the Buick, the idea being that when this car was left the occupants picked up another. Bishop Heelan Celebrated Mass Here Corwith Farmer Was in an Accident. Britt News Tribune: Wm. Wermer- sen, who lives three and one-half miles west of Corwith, had an experience Thursday afternoon that he does not care to repeat. He was operating a ractor. and corn picker driven by a powwr-takeoff and stopped to make some minor adjustments.

Prom the experience he is suf- ering from a lame back and his side rom near the hip to the shoulder is listered from the clothes rubbing as hey wound up.

Welt Miller, who for many years, Register: Getting out of the rut is practiced law at Whittemore and West i good business and Bancroft business men were so well pleased with the results of oiling their streets last spring that paving rumors are already in the air. Keeping the dust down the past year cost main street business men from $15.00 to as high as $50.00 and already the streets could well stand another application of oil. Swea City recently completed main street paving at a cost of $168.00 per 25 foot lot and the interest charge on the paving will be much cheaper than the annual cost for oiling. It is quite possible the matter will be presented to the council during the next few months so preparation can be made for action next spring. on. Alcohol and Prestone Freezing Solution 1930 G cyl.
