Titonka Aiming At Another Fine Season With Bia Sauc Tilonka's football squad be "an workouts under head coach Lyle Opht-im Saturday. A total of'35 men reported for the opening drill, including 12 letteimen and five returning squad members from the lP5fi tcnm which racked up a 6-2 won-lo?t mark that included five straight wins before the end of the season. The Indians are aiming at an eight game schedule, which fol lows: Sept. 13—Renwick. here. Sept. 20—Thompson, there Sept. 27—Ruthven, there Oct. 4—Armstrong, here Oct. 11—West Bend, there Oct. 18—Graettingrr. here Oct. 25—Terril. there Nov 1—Swea City, here All games but the opener are Cornbelt Conference frays. Lettermen back for another year include Clinton Asche, Arlen Bilsborough, Allan Boyken, Ernest Carlson, Richard Mayland, Wendell Schirtjer and "Bruce Sleeker, seniors; Philip Asa, Rodney Alexander, Richard Hench, Jack and Richard Trunkhill, juniors. r '• Other members of thfe. squat! are: seniors — Mike Nielson, Gary Pearson and Dwight Seaburg; junior — Lloyd Pommer; sophomores — Jerry Buffington, Edward Mayland, Gary Michaelson, Larry Pearson, David Smldt and Doug Swan; and freshmen — Gary Beed, Jeffry Boyken, Kermit Brandt, George Cunningham, Ronald Folkerts, Donald Gigler, Overs Krantz, Mike Krause. Leland Pearson, Dennis Rike, Maurice Sathoff, Doyle Trenary and Jon Watson. Opheim, who is beginning his fifth year as headman at Titonka, will be assisted with the coaching duties by Donald Kerr, St. Ambrose graduate, who is beginning his first season with the Indians. The turnout this year is the largest in the six-year history of football at Titohka. Several switches will be made as Opheim plans to move some of last year's linemen into the backfield. His team speed is below average, and at present seems to be the biggest headache. Lack of experienced backs is another problem. Coach Opheim figures Ruthven will have the team to beat in the conference, but thinks his team, which finished second in 1956, Graettinger, Armstrong and Sioux Rapids, will all be ready and willing to make" a* battle of it. 6-Aleona (la.) Upper Das Mome» Thursday, August 29. 19S? The Bulldogs, who finished with a 2-6 won-lost record a year ago, will use a single wing offense built around the seven returnees. The team is a member of the Cornbelt Conference. Lyle Dodd is assistant football coach. West Bend Team Hds 7 Letter Winners Back West Band's football record this year will depend largely on the performances of seven returning lettermen, according to Coach J. R. Ferguson. In Observance of Labor Day THE ALGONA BANKS Will Be CLOSED Monday; Sept. 2nd IOWA STATE BANK SECURITY STATE BANK Members of F.D.I.C. Spirit High At Algona; About 50 Men Report Conditioning will be number on e on the agenda during many * ^f?", 8 . high school's opening football drills, according to Coach Harold Shugart, who checked out equipment to more than 40 men last weekend. .The start of school yesterday (Wednesday) was expected to swell the number of members to the 50 mark. In numbers, the 1957 team is ahead of the past two teams, but experience is another thing — and it seems to be mighty short, indeed. Ten lettermen are back for another season, but with the exception of the letter winners, the rest of the squad is practically without experience. Shugart hopes spirit, which has been good through the first few sessions, will aid in getting the locals out of one of the worst slumps in history. Algona hasn't won a football game for two seasons and has only one tie to break the monotony of defeat over the same stretch. The Bulldogs will meet Emmetsburg at the fairgrounds in the season opener Sept. 13. Football Again At Burt; 35 Are On Squad With only one game scheduled, an Oct. 18 meeting with Armstrong, the Burt high school football team began drills for the 1957 season Monday. Coaches Ray Ihnen and Larry Beckley are in hopes of lining up more games, perhaps with several B squads in the area, but if the games fail to materialize, the first season of football at Burt in almost 50 years will be aimed at developing next year's team which will compete in the newly formed State Line Conference which will open play in 1958. A total of 35 men reported for football and checked out equipment at Burt. The team, equipped in brand-new uniforms, will practice as though a tough eight- game schedule was on tap, according to Ihnen and Beckley. An electric eel can discharge enough electricity to knock down a man. Teams Go 22 Innings, 0-0, Game Called Wesley Livestock and the Johnsons of Ledyard met in the finals of a softball tournament at Buffalo Center Monday night — and neither tepm won. The reason — the teams went at it for 22 INNINGS WITHOUT A RUN BEING SCORED BY EITHER TEAM. Following the 0-0 stand-off, which was called at 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, tournament officials decided the two teams would split first and second place money. Clyde Pricbe of the Wesley team and Ervin Johnson of the Ledyard entry each went all the way on the mound. Hits wore at a premium throughout the lengthy struggle, although each team had the bases loaded three limes during the fray and failed to gel the necessary punch to score. Fielding gems were a dime a dozen, with several hitters robbed of home runs by remarkable catches in the outfield. A check of the records might prove Monday's game to be the longest scoreless duel in Softball history in the slate. Den Cook One Of 40, Drake Squad Des Moines (Special) -_ Don Cook of Algona is one of 40 Drake University football players who will report Aug. 30 to open fall practice. Cook, a three-sport athlete at Algona high school, won a letter as a guard last year as a Bulldog sophomore. He's counted on heavily again this season by Coach Warren Gaer. Actual practice for the Bulldogs will begin Sept. 2 and continue twice daily until Sept. 14 when Drake launches its sixty- fifth season of football against Iowa Teachers. The Bulldogs play three other home games. They meet South Dakota State on Sept. 28, Colorado State Oct. 19 and then close with the traditional Homecoming battle against Iowa State on Nov. 2.
