Hershberger Back; Nucleus 12 Leffermen Coach Jim Hershberger of Algona high school, who guided the Bulldogs to their most successful season in many years when they won five and lost three in 1961, is back in Algona after active duty as an army reservist, and began facing the task of building another winner during the 1962 season. Jim is not downhearted about this season's prospects, but at the same time enough ifs are present to cloud the picture to some extent. Hershberger is blessed with 12 lettermen. However, some of the returnees won their awards in reserve roles and it won't be known for some time if they can meet full-time varsity specifications. Coach Hershberger plans to issue equipment to his charges at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22 — and just two days later, sometime during the morning of Aug. 24, the team will open practices on a two- a-day basis until school opens Aug. 29. Then the one-a-day program will take over. Lettermen slated to report in elude Bill VVetzel, Tom Waller Rich Hutchins and Alan Holt backs; Jack Williams and May nard Shackelford, ends; Dennis Helmke, Paul Smith and Bii Specht, tackles; Gary Kelley anc Dick Pratt, guards; and Mike Kain, center. Waller, at quarterback last year broke all local records when he ran for 471 yards and passed for Gamgan Has 13 Vefs, But Needs Backs Coach Beanie Cooper of Gar rigan high school recently sale his doctor had told him that hif over-all health picture might improve if the Golden Bears didn't have such a rugged nine-game schedule facing them this fall. Cooper probably will endure the sleepless nights and attacks of indigestion and put a formidable team on the gridiron — despite his doctor's diagnosis. True, the Bears open against a pair of real rugged foes. They travel to Dos Moines for a meeting with Dowling. then host Mason City high school here in their first two contests — and they will start the 1962 season without several fine players that helped them to fine records during the past two vears. Taking a quick, early look at the Bears' chances, here is the pic- ure. There are 13 letter winners back from last season.

Upper Des Moines TUESDAY, AUGUST 14, 1962 Simon Blame, Ledyard, 72 Rites Monday I.rdyanl — Funeral services were held Monday afternoon for Simon Blome. 72. 'of Elmnre. Mr Blome passed away at his home ir Elmore early Friday morning. He was born on Aug. 31, 1890 ir Germany and came to this cnun- ry as a child. He moved with lis parents to the Ledyard about 18BS. He was married on Fob 10, ills o Hanna Kngelbats a! the Re- ormed church in Ledyr.rd. She jassed away on Nov. 13, 1918 when heir son was eight days old. Mr Blome retired from active arming and moved into Elmore everal years ago. The son, Marvin along with the our grandchildren survive. Also 947 more to amass a total of 1418 yards in eight games. The number two and three ground gainers a year ago, Wetzel and Hutchins, with 213 and 178 yards, respectively, will also add plenty of zip to the single wing offense used bj Hershberger. Holt was used mainly as a blocker last season. Up front, Shackelford was a varsity regular until he suffered a knee injury; Williams served both as a reserve and regular, as were Specht and Pratt. Helmke, Smith, Kelley and Kain were regulars, so Hershberger does have a fine nucleus to work with. There are other returnees from last year's squad who did not letter, but the entire list will not be known until the players report. There will also be some first- timers that eventually might give some aid, although under normal conditions not too much can be expected from the freshman and sophomore crop. The Bulldogs will have less than three weeks to prepare for their opener at Emmetsburg Sept. 14. From that Friday night on, Hershberger's team will play a North Central Conference game every Friday. There are four home games and four away on the slate Khich follows: Sept. 14—Emmetsburg, there Sept. 21—Humboldt, here Sept. 23—Webster City, there Oct. 5—Eagle Grove, here Oct. 12—Hampton, here Oct. 19—Clear Lake, there Oct. 2f>—Clarion, there Nov. 2—Iowa Falls, here and reserves and the other foun saw limited action. Cooper has backs Tom Hudspeth, Jim Nitchals, Bob Schneider and Lee Froehlich; tackles Steve Studer, Phil Henry and Marvin Tripp; ends Dick Stoulil, Bill Rahm and Steve Smith: guards Mark Elbert and Paul Seiler; and center LeRoy Heinen to build his 1962 edition of the Bears around. Of course, there will be others from last year's squad and newcomers to the game of football on :he roster when equipment is issued and practices begin Aug. 24. In listing his problems. Cooper named them in this order: replac- ng last season's offensive back- ield i the first five men graduat- d); filling the right tackle slot; ack of depth; lack of offensive peed; must face, for the most art, schools much larger than larrigan; and last, but by no means least, a shortage of crying i we Is. Cooper's assistant coaches will e Bill Brennan and Frank Sch- r eitzer, both newcomers on Garigan's staff. The Bears have won 12, lost four and tied one in he past two years and Cooper has a lifetime mark of 65-28-4. The Bears will again operate out f the VVing-T offense and the de- ense will undoubtedly be built round the big men, Studer, Seiler nd Heinen, all well over the 200 ound mark and all regulars last eason. The Cooper-men svill be hard al after Aug. 24, shaping up for ;. ' ; chedule which opens Stpt. 14 ai i Dowling.
