Mrs. Reno was thrown a distance of some six feet landing against a door. She was given Immediate medical attention and was resting easily Monday. Phillips Won by Technical Knockout. Algona's premier flghter, Clarence Phillips, again won his match, this time by a technical knockout in a little over a minute of fighting at the armory in Mnson City last Thursday night. Phillips was booked to fight Leonard Johnson in the semi-windup of Joe Kellcy's big American Legion show but Johnson was laid up with an attack of the flu and Whitey Baker of Newton substituted. Phillips had liked Johnson once before at Mason City. A left to the heart set Baker on the floor early In the first round but he took no count. A right and left to the head floored him for two counts, and he was up again. Another right and left put him out on his feet and Referee Kelly stopped the bout. Approximately one minute and fifteen seconds was needed by Phillips to do the trick. An estimated crowd of between fifty and one hundred enthusiastic Algonians attended the fight. One of the bouts was a sure enough <nock down and drag out affair with two fighters who hit each other with everything but the kitchen sink. One fighter was floored about sixteen times FENTON IN FINALS AT TOURNAMENT Eliminated by Swea City on Saturday Night by a Score of 17 to 6. DEFEATED WESLEY IN SLOW GAME.

Mrs. 'Reno had put a cake,In the oven an hour before and thinking the cake was ready to come out opened the door, only to fine that the flame had been extinguished and the other seven times. This Is the kind of flght that the blood-thirsty American fan likes. Phillips has been doing great fighting In the last two months and Is In much demand by promoters throughout northern Iowa. The crowd is always satisfied with him and he has proved a great drawing card. On March 9, he is booked to flght Hal Molelnhoff of Fort Dodge at the Spencer opera house in the main evening of the evening. Phillips made a big hit with the Spencer fans in the same show when he won the decision over "Wild Bill' Gerdes in a great flght.

Special: The Fenton Tigers were defeated In the finals of the Kossuth county basket ball tournament at Ledyard last Saturay night, They were defeated by the Swea City team by the score of 17 to 6. This marks the fourth time in the last five years that the Tigers have played in the finals. Fenton 30, Wesley 11. For the first round, Fenton defeated the Wesley high school team 30 to 11. This game was rather slow and poorly played during the first half. Fenton scored the first field goal and held the lead during the entire game. The two teams played quite evenly during the first half and the score at the half stood 9 to 7 in favor of Fenton. Immediately following the half, the Fenton offense broke away for numerous short shots and set ups and at the end of the game the Fenton team was on the long end of a 30 to 11' score. Fcnton 15, Whit tern ore 12. The Fenton Tigers defeated Whittemore in a battle royal by the score of 15 to 12.

The only field goal scored by Whittemore was a shot from center by E. Heller 1 . The Fenton offense began to operate from the start of the game and at one time Fenton held a 8 to 0 advantage. The score at the half was 8 to 2 in favor of Fenton. The second half found the situation reversed with Whittemore outlaying Fenton. Whittemore scored ten points to 7 for Fenton but the lead built up in the first half was too much of a handicap to overcome. Both teams were playing fast, rought basket ball and fighting hard. When the gun sounded to end the game Fenton led 15 to 12. Swea City 17, Fenton 5. The Swea City Swedes defeated the Tigers in the finals by the score of 17 to 5. This was purely a defensive battle, both teams using the delayed offense and then breaking fast for the basket. The Swea five had better luck : on their shots than Fenton. Sweaj started the scoring on a long shot by Jensen from the center of the floor. The two teams played scoreless ball for the remaining first quarter but in the second quarter Helmke got open and dropped in two field goals and one by Hanifan gave Swea eight points while Fenton only scored a free throw and the score at the half was 8 to 1. At the start of the second half Ger- onsln went under for a short shot that was good to make the score 8 to 3. Then the Swea five began to operate and they soon pulled away from Fenton to put the game on Ice. The game was very slow and uninteresting to watch. When the gun sounded to end the game Swea was ahead 17 to 6. At the close of the game Fenton was awarded the basket ball used In the tournament and Swea received a half size gold basket ball.
