Second row, left to right, Tim Claude, guard; George Graham, tackle; Bob Bradford, tackle; Gary Barr, center; Brad Kraft, back; Danny Gilmore, back; Charles Scobba, guard; John Stratton, center; Skip Perkins, back; and Coach Keith Christie.

Stephenson, who serves as head coach of the fresh-sophs, credits Christie with building a fine line this year. The squad had the finest set of young ends in many years, according to the coaches. Dave Martin and Glen Tschetter led the team in scoring, although points were pretty well divided among several players at season's end. Wins over Eagle Grove and Clear Lake came against teams that were previously unbeaten during the season. (UDM Flashfoto-Engraving) By Don Smith "They are a GREAT bunch of kids," a frank tn-the-noint statement by Coach Jim Hershberger and echoed by Assistant Coache5 Champ Martin, Howie Stephenson Keith Christie and Arnold Hili pretty much told the story of the Algona High Bulldogs' great unbeaten 1902 season in football. Algona finished with seven wins, a tie, no defeats, and the championship of the North Central Conference. Hershberger, who started Algona's resurgence to the top of the pile in the North Central Conference in 1960 following several dismal preceding seasons, *is VCfy^ proud of his team — and he certainly has a right to be. Under his direction since coming to Algona that year, the Bulldogs hnve won 14, lost seven and tjed three. And four of the defeats were during his first season. On the way to Algona's first unbeaten season in years, Tom Waller, senior spinback in Hershberger's single wing attack, established another single season record. Waller, who set the existing mark of 1419 yards in 1961, ran and passed for 11108 yards this season while operating behind a fine forward wall led by Gary Kellcy. Dennis Helmke, Jack Williams. Maynard Shackelford, Mike Kuin. Paul Smith, Dick Pratt and Co. Led State In Iflfil On the ground, Waller, who weighs in al 145 and who led the state in rushing and passing in 1961 while 15 pounds lighter, carried the ball 140 times and picked up 764 yards, an average of 5.4 yards per try. He added 1044 yards on 62 completed passes in 111 attempts for his 1K08 total. Percentage of completions was 56 and 15 of his tosses went for touch- downs, also a record. Waller wasn't without assistance on the way to his new record. In the backfield, Rich Hutchins, senior halfback, picked up 389 yards rushing in 71 tries to average 5.4 yards per trip, and Bill Wetzel senior halfback, got 248 yards in 41 carries for a 6-yard average. Among players who will be back next year, Dave Martin, speedy freshman halfback, carried three times, gained 68 yards for a 22.7 average, Bruce Sundet, junior halfback, got 68 yards in 12 trips for a 5.7 mark and Willie Steinman. junior spinback, gained 26 yards on the ground and pass for another 53 yards for a 79 yard total. Williams Nabbed G TD's Algona's pass receiving was perhaps the finest in the state. Senior end Jack Williams, who grew up considerably between the 1961 and 1962 seasons, used his fine set of hands to grab 22 tosses for 478 yards, an average of almost 22 yards on each catch. He also iSjGOCed si* touchdowns on passes, tops here in many years, perhaps Prospects For Good Ledyard Team Bright Coach Eldon Fain has a good crop of lettermen back from the Lodyard team that finished second in the State Line Conference last season with a 10-3 record. Letterwinners are Bill Mcnko Marlin Lloyd, Roger Green. Car' Payne, Sherwin Brandt, S. fi. Payne, Dale Brandt, John Porter- sen, Jon DeBoer, Eugene Lloyd and Dennis Wickwire. The girls' club, coached by Lammfrs, also was second in the loop with a 7-3 record. Veterans back are Ann Carpenter, Gail B-iu- man, Marilyn Johnson, Linda Pingel, Sherry Klinksiek, Darlene Logemann, Nancy Hcrzog, Dianne Watcrhoiusc and Barbara Far- Thf girls open Nov. 13 at Burl, and the boys Nov. 10 at Woden- Crystal Lake. GRID GUESSERS CONTEST By 01' Man Most- Merrill Walker, whose weekly entries in the (irid (iuessrrs contest are never poor, won first place in Saturday's contest, but not without some competition. He guessed 17 games correct, and picked 60 as a high game point total. The actual high point total was 57, the .Missouri victory over Colorado. Just a notch behind him, also with 17 right but a high game total of (i(i, was Sam Mct'leish of Lone Hock. In third, witli 17 right also and a high game total of G!), was Arty Mulligan of Jiancroft. They were the only ones with 17 games correctly picked. On the Honor Holl with 1C games correct were the following: Dave Shumway, David Clirischilles, David Hanselmaii, Suzanne Beisch. Lois Stroluuan, Monte Pearson, Irene Slobc, Hob Morgan, all Algona; and Douglas J. llansen. Ringstod. Most of the guvssers had from 10 to 15 correct, and very lew picked Wisconsin over Northwestern. There was a pretty even split on the Iowa-Minnesota contest. Coming in last, with eight games correct, and winner of the chicken dinucr as Al's Place in Algonu, was Elden Meyer of Oltosen, who this week let himself go and as a result is sole occupaut of the Mourner's Bench, but he'll be able to occupy it while digesting a good meal. Just identify yourself at Al's Place, Eldeu. and get the dinner. Next Saturday'!) semi-final contest of the year is in section three of today's Upper Uus Moiues. Same rules, same prizes, tame fun. Good luck! in history. Hutchins caught 18 for 145 yards, Wetzel 14 for 297 yards, Dave Skogstrom, senior blocking back, four for 73 yards and Shackelford, Jim Abbott, junior end, and Bob Garms, senior end, each grabbed three for shorter yardage. Waller was also top scorer. He counted 12 touchdowns and place- kicked 17 points after touchdown to total 89 points. Wetzel counted eight TDs for 48 points, Williams seven TDs for 42 points, Hutchins three TDs for 18 points, Martin two touchdowns for 12 points (and he carried the ball only three times all season) and Steinman, Shackelford and Skogstrom each tallied one TD. Steinman scored one point after touchdown and Abbott got two points on a safety. The total score by quarters for the season looks like this: ALGONA Opponents 80 - 51 - 59 - 40—230 20 - 14 - 0 - 26— 60 Average score of games through the eight-game slate -was Algona 28.8, opponents 7.5. Here are the official statistics for the season: A Opp. First downs 106 71 Passes attempted.. 129 34 Passes completed.. 68 29 Yds. passing 1119 4«5 Passes int. by 12 10 Yds. int. ret 135 67 KO — Ave 43-38.5 18-36.S Punls — Ave 27-28.7 38-31.G Yds. kicks ret 427 671 Fumbles lost 8 16 Yds. penalized 502 250 Yds. rushing 1690 H30 Tot. yds gained ... 2709 1315 A comparison of statistics indicates clearly why the Bulldogs managed to post the finest record here in modern history (since 1925). 5 Vets Back For Garrigan Cage Team Algona Garrigan High expects to floor a team of good ball handlers with good size this season, although the big men lost through graduation will be missed. Last season the Golden Bean-racked up a 15-7 record and advanced to the sub-state tourney before bowing to Laurens. Lylc Loeback and Bob Goecke, a pair of (i-5 boys, and Mike Cink and John Fandel are gone this year. The lettermen returning are Bob Schneider, Steve Smith, Steve Stu- cler, Bill Rahm and LeRoy Heinen. All are near the (i-foot mark. Bill Brennen is the coach this season. He replaces Leon Vann who is attending State College of Iowa.

Coach Perry Uhl's job is to find replacements for Mick Will and Jim Sloan, ace forward and center of a year ago. Last year the Vikings tied with Goldfield at 10-1 for the North Slar Conference title. The veterans are Gene Oxley, Ron Puffer, Jerry Daniels, Ron Root, Dick Jongewaard and Tom Long. The girls club has six letter winners back and is coached by Phil Hunget. Last season the girl's were fourth in the loop with a 7-3 record. Letterwinners are Carla Ezerski, Linda Erdman, Linda Davis, Jackie Shipman, Carol Fish and Stephanie Bartik. PHEASANT HUNT Russell Holloway, of Tacoma, Wash, and Billy Leonard, 213 J. St., Nevada, will leave Nevada early to begin their 56th annual pheasant hunt together. The happiest announcemenl of a new baby comes from (he grandmother, as those who heard the good news from Mrs Nell Ophdm will testify. Mr and Mrs Alfred Opheim became the parents of their first child, a boy born Wednesday evening at St. Ann hospital. He weighed nine pounds, cen ounces and has a full head of curly black hair, and is to be named Douglas Cameron. Tin' maternal grandparents are Mr and Mrs Archie Halstead of Em metsburg. Just as there is a gain IIKTP is also going to be a big loss hi population when (he Darrd Stevens and five children move to a farm home northeast of here. So once more the John Jennings will be all alone on their side of town. Now that Corrine Gabrielson has dropped out of so many club activities it was a pretty quiet week except for picking and shelling enough corn to fill that bi^ blur silo. The rest of the family is trying to "take up the slack" for her as Glenn was chairman for entertainment at the Methodist Men's Club at Wesley this week. Mrs Gabriclson's mother, Mr? Vinnie Laymon, did her share by attending the Plum Creek women's club with the aid of a good sam- aritan, Mrs Floyd Bode, who drove her to the meeting. Glennda Gabrielson was home from Cedar Falls for the weekend as she was able to catch a ride with some people coming to this area to hunt. For a change the hunters arc not coming to Gabrielsons. This year son Kcnyon is old enough to go out on his own and bring a few friends along. Mr and Mrs Elmer Phillips am beginning to take advantage of his retirement. They went shopping in Mason City and spent the evening with friends there. The next evening they went to a housewarming for the Will Giffords at Bur! who have retired from farming. The evening was also a celebration of Mr Gifford's birthday. Wonder how many others wonl to so much effort to cast their vote as John SI ration, who walked here from Wesley after going over on the bus to vote. The Irving Gallons made a trip to Cedar Falls to bring their daughter as far ns Mason City whore she will be practice teaching frit- nine weeks before finishing up her last year in college. The Harold Gallons spent a busy weekend right at homo as tlioy kept their four nephews, sons c'f the Kenneth Gallons, while the parents attended a wedding in Austin, Minn. It must have kepi Wilford Ward and Clarence Golwitzcr on tho move to the elevator this week as Palmer Rurup was home sick and Torn Arndorfer was on a vacation of sorts, helping pick corn al hi: parents' place. Mr mid Mrs Wilford Ward are doing a good job of representinp the local area lor the Odd Follow? Lodge. They attended a tea in honor of the assembly president of The Rcbckahs at Ottumwa. Mrs Ward accompanied her mother. Mrs Nellie Weir in her car back to her home at Colo while Joan and her father followed in thcit car. Joan and Melvin then spent the weekend with their grandmother. Among the regular hunlt-rs ar riving for the opening of (lit 1 son- son are Mr and Mrs C. C. Fischer of Boonc, spending the weekend with the Wilford Wards. Grover and Clarence Grubb are away from home a few days again, this time staying at the L. While home in Algona. The Whites have gone to Wisconsin to attend the funeral of Mr White's mother. Mr White is a well known school bus driver in this area in past years. Art Olscn arrived home just in time lo take Mrs Olscn to the hospital in Algona where she is in isolation with the type of infection Arl has had. What a time to gi to the hospital when in the middle of plans for their only daughter's wedding. Tuesday, November 13, 1962 Algona (In.) Upper Des UTILITIES PROCEEDINGS A mcttmi; of ili ( .
