Hii team speed is .beldrty 'average, anc at present seems to -be the bigges: headache. Lack of experiertcec bficfe; 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 West Bend Team Winners Back West Bend's football record this year will depend largely on the performances of seven returning lettermen, according to Coach 'J.

Upper Des Moines Thursday, August 29. 1957 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. Spirit High At Algona; About 50 Men Report Conditioning will be number one on the agenda during many of Algona 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 squad 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 Co 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 ;hrough the first few sessions, will aid in getting the locals but of one of the worst slumps in listory, Algona hasn't won a ! ootball game for two seasons and las 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 Armtrong, the Burt high school football team began drills for the 957 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 he games fail to materialize, the irst season of football at Burt in almost 50 years will be aimed at developing next year's team which will compete in the newly ormed State Line Conference hich will open play in 1958. A total of 35 men reported for ootball and checked out equip- nent at Burt. The team, equipped n brand-new uniforms, will jractice as though a tough,eight- ame schedule was on tap, ac- ording to Ihnen and Beckley. Teams Go 22 Innings, fl-Q, Game Called Wesley Livestock and Ihe Johnsons of Ledyard met in ihe finals of a sofiball tournament dt Buffalo Center Monday night — and neither teem 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 ihe two teams would split first and second place money. Clyde Priebe of the Wesley team and Ervin Johnson of the Ledyatd entry each went all the way on the mound. ' Hits were at a premium throughout the lengthy struggle, 'although each team had ihe bases loaded three times during the fray and failed to get the necessary punch to score. Fielding gems were a dime a dozen, with several hitlers robbed of home runs by remarkable catches in ihe ouifield. A check of ihe records might prove Monday's game to be the longest scoreless duel in sofiball history in ihe state.
