IT! AL60NA The Final Score... W • CITY 14 .Brought This Smile A quick trip to Cloud Seven came for Algona high school Football Coach Jim Hershberger the minute the final buzzer sounded as his hustling outfit dumped Webster City, 19-14, in a real, old fashioned thriller at Webster City Friday night. The loss was the first for the Lynx in 33 games. Jim's first glance was at the Scoreboard — to make sure he wasn't dreaming — and he wasn't, for there it was, 19-14, big as life His feet had trouble touching the ground the rest of Friday night and all day Saturday because he felt so good. It was his greatest thrill. The photo of Jim was snapped by John Phillips of the AHS Camera Club as the squad and coaches enjoyed a victory meal at an Eagle Grove cafe. His hair was mussed and he had tomato on his shirt from a vegetable that struck the bus in Webster City and sprayed passengers — but he didn't mind a bit. Hershberger got back on the ground Monday as he and his squad began the serious task of getting ready for a home engagement against Eagle Grove this Friday. The Bulldogs will be shooting for their fourth straight win of the campaign — and a rung at the top of the conference ladder, now shared with Clarion.

Algona Angler Snares A Huge Paddle Fish A veteran Algona fisherman, Ed Holacek, got a real thrill when he and a fishing friend pulled in a 37 ' 2 pound paddle fish near a dam on the Missouri River near Pierre, S. D., Monday, Sept. 17., Ed is shown above with his whopper, which definitely resembles something from prehistoric times.- •"-.'•' r" '•-"I& i The fish looks 'lik'e something that might be caught in the sen and in coloration resembles some species of sharks. Without teeth, the paddle fish uses the large flat paddle attached to the front end of its head to lossen moss and other vegetation from the bottom of the river for food. KOSSUTH COUNTY Sentral Cruises To 2nd Straight Friday, 37-6 For the second straight week Scntral's Satellites chalked up e lop-sided win as they pasted Ti tonka, :)7-(i, at Sentral Field Fri day night in a State Line Conference game. The victory gijvt Sentral a 2-1 season mark. Sentral, couched by Jim Woltz is slated to meet one of the top teams in the area this Fridaj night. The Satellites will travel to Armstrong where they will attempt IQ put a damper on Armstrong's unbeaten season. Armstrong got past Rake, 13-7, in a loop fray Friday night and has a 3-0 record. Barry Nelson and Lynn Bierstedt were standouts in general's first conference fray. Bierstedl led an early surge that saw Senjtral score two touchdowns and Tilonka one ip the first ppriod. Bierstedt went 11 ya.rds tor the first sty-pointer of the contest, then took a pass from Nelson good for a 39-yard TD. Jim Kippen- trop kept the Indians in the game when h? scored op a 66-yard, pass and Sentral Jed, 12-6, at the quarter and half. Tom Geitzena,uer widened Sentral's lead early in the third period when he dashed 70 yards foj six points.

In the 8Ui grade contest a pass from M linger to Boldridge scored the first tally, Farnham bowler 1 pver for two TD's, and Larry Mungwr ran for another. In the line, Max Miller, Boldridge, Darrel Johnson and Tom Claude were standouts. Score at the half was 12 to 0. Arnold Hill coaches the iith grade and Richard Schneider for 7th. Swea City . .

It went li Roderick Heuhalfen and Dorothy Oct. l. Kd Holacek Fishing for paddle fish is different, too. They won't go for any bait, so it i,s perfectly legal to snag them. Ed used a 90 pound line, a one-half pound sinker and I wo large treble hooks on his expedition. He snagged his paddle fish near the tail — and the fish got its rear portion tangled in the line in good shape and tried to take off down the river. After quite a struggle, he was landed and made the trip home with Mr Holacek. According to Ed, paddle fish tastes very much like catfish — only better. One thing is certain — he will know the taste very well indeed when he finishes eating his prize catch.

The high pitch of tonsion, buil' up in fans during the frantii struggle, was released in the fom of tears by hundreds at the fina' buzzer. Webster City tears werr of sadness — Algoria tears ol happiness. Even when two win dows were broken with rocks anc a tomato hit another and splashed coaches and persons inside UK school bus hauling the happy Bulldogs back to the locker roorr after the game, there was no let up in the hilarity. Last Time Fn 1947 For many of the Algona fan? present, it was the first opportunity to see Algona dump Webster City in football. It's doubtful if anyone younger than 20 years of age could remember such a game, because the locals hadn't turned the trick since 1946 and 1947. The win kept the Bulldogs unbeaten for the year with five loo;- games remaining. Next up is Eagle Grove. Coach Jim Hershberger rater' the win over Webster City as thf biggest thrill in his life of coaching. He added that the Bulldog;will have to play each foe in turn — without a slip. Eagle Grove is winless in three starts this yeai and in its last outing dropped ; 13-7 decision to Humboldt Friday night. The Bulldogs know any team in the league can pull an up, set, and hope to be ready for the big challenge every week. Webster City A Strong Team Webster City hammered the Bulldogs with everything it had from the opening whistle Friday Taking a short kick-off at the start, the Lynx got their first march to a score underway from their .jp\vn 33 yard line. With Dick Dinsdale ancl Lon Hinderks carrying most of the load, they moved to the Algona 28 in just six plays The home club scored on the next play, but a penalty cancelled the six points ancl brought the bal back lo the 33. A re-run of thf first TD scamper saw Ed Mulhol land, quarterback, scoot the distance to Algona's end zone tf make it 6-0. Denny Dcischcr placekicked the extra point tr make il 7-0 with less than 3' ; minutes gone in the period. The Bulldogs, who proved against Emmetsburg they were not ; team to give up, needed just foui plays lo gel right back in the mid die of the battle. Starting from their own 40, Rich Hutchins ancl Bill Welzel look turns carrying the pigskin lo Ihe Webster City 4:' yard line where il was second and seven. The Bulldogs Score The snap went to Tom Waller spinback. He shot through the right side of the line, ricochelcc 1 through Ihree men in the second ary, and showed his heals to the Lynx to score standing up. Hi; placekick attempl for the exlrr point squirted short and to the left and the talented Lynx were on top. 7-6. It was the Lynx turn again. Held near midfield, they punted to the Bulldogs who pul Ihe ball in play on their own 25. The first plaj was a hand-off from Waller ti Hutchins. The latter fatled a; he ran to his right, and just be fore gelling hit by three Lynx tossed a pass loward Waller, bu short of Ihe mark. Dinsdale racee 1 in, grabbed the ball at full speed and ran unhampered to a touch down. Deischer again booted tin extra point to make it 14-6 with 2:37 lefl in Ihe quarter. If anyone Ihoughl the action- packed issue was setlled, they were way off. It look the Bull dogs only six plays to go 68 yard; to a touchdown as the period ending buzzer sounded. Top effort of Ihe drive came from Waller and Williams. With the line of scrimmage on the Algona 32 yard line, Waller fader 1 deep and launched a pass lhal parried more than.50 yards in the pip to Williams who made one of tihe b'est catches ever seen in this area. The ball floated over hi' head and inlo his arms just u two Webster City defenders belted him on the Webster Cily 21.

Tlii Lynx scared Algona fans twice-once reaching the one yard lim where Algona's defense proved l< be too sliff. and again just be fore the half when they got d Ihe eight.
