EXPECT 50 OUT ON BULLDOG GRID SOUAD 10 Letfermen Eligible; Six Are Ineligible Algona high school's foolbaP chances this fall will depend largely on the work of ten returning lottermen, according to Head Conch Harold Shugait, who \v i t h assistant coaches George Duvall and Champ Martin will begin the task of building a winning club in a few days "We should have nearly 50 boys out for football," said Shugart Tuesday afternoon, "about ten more than a year ago. The coaching staff isn't nearly as interested in numbers as it is in boys who are willing to work a little bit." Letters were sent earlier in the month to all possible candidates registered for the 1957-58 school year by Shugart and his aides. However, if there are any boy? interested in football Shugart has made it known that they may report to him as soon as possible. "We don't want to miss any prospects," he says, "and it is easy to skip the name of a boy who may be a prize squad member." Starts Second Year Shugart, who is starting hii second season as football mentor Rave no indication of the type o'ffense or defense his squad will employ during the 195? schedule, which includes eight games, four at home and four away, starting with an engagement with Emmetsburg here Friday night, Sept. 13. Through the rest of the season, Clarion. Clear Lake and Webster City wili play the locals here and the Bulldogs will travel to Eagle Grove, Hampton, Iowa Falls and Humboldt for out of town games. Returning lettermen include seniors Francis Bjustrom and Neil Col well, guards; Jerry Rupp and Howie Funk, ends; and Dave Richardson, quarterback; juniors Tom Potter, fullback; Al Fosnaugh, guard; and Joel Harris, center; and sophomores Dieter Gruner, halfback; and Bob Kern, tackle. One letter-winner last fall quit school and two others were declared scholastically ineligible. All in all, six high tchool athletes are at present in eligible to compete. Equipment Tonight Equipment will be issued to squad members tonight (Thursday) and tomorrow night (Friday) from 7 to 9 p.m. at the high school. The squad will then be ready for practice session which promise 'to be hot and heavv right off the bat. Shugart has .nothing to offer on prospects for the season, say ing only that "this year's team can't have as bad a record as last year's, and should be improved despite the loss of all the seniors." .According to the coach, Hum- .boldt and Webster City should have the finest teams in the loop with the other six clubs, including Algona, capable of. pulling an occasional upset. Shugart, Martin, Duvall and company (the squad)-are going to be battling (and it promises to be a real battle) to give Algone fans more to cheer about than they .have had during the past two years, which have been winless. ; a--Algohtt (Id.)

Swea City Has Optimism And 10 Lettermen A large football squad, including ten lettermen, is expected to be on hand when drills begin at Swea City Saturday, according to Coach Bradley Bauman, who is beginning his first year at the helm of the Trojans. Practices for the entire squad will be held from opening day on through the rugged eigh't same schedule, which looks like this: Sept. 13—Terril, there Sept. 20—West Bend, home Sept. 27—Mallard, there Oct. 4 —Ventura, home Oct. 11—Graettinger, there Oct. 18—Thompson, home Oct. 25—Armstrong, home Nov. 1 —Titonka, there The Thompson-Swea City fray Oct. 18 will be homecoming for the Trojans.

The better-than-average crop of returnees will be used as a nucleus and the addition of a half-dozen sophomores who saw duty last year and other squad members expected to report, should make the Trojans formidable. 1957 will be the last for the Trojans in the Cornbelt Conference, which has been in operation for several years.
