LAKE Locals Bow At Hampton But Eye Win Here Algeria's Bulldogs ran out of gas late in the game as Hampton's hii<*e, juggpvnaut rolled the locals, 27-6, at Hampton, Friday night, in a conference game. The locals now have a shot- at two teams on the home field before hitting the road again. Clear 1 Lake's Lions will Tbe in town tomorrow night, Oct. 4, at Homecoming for a 7:45 p.m meeting with Coach Harold Shugart's crew and Clarion will pay a visit the following Friday. Clear Lake was bopped, 44-0, by Humboldfs strong aggregation Friday night. The Bulldogs tried to shoot, down a B-52 with a B-B gun in the Hampton fray and for three periods it looks like the tricky offense, with Dave Richardson at the controls, might get the job done. In the end, it was a tired bunch of Bulldogs battling to keep Hampton from really poilr- ing it on. Algona Scores First Algona scored first, the TD corning midway in the second period after the locals had halted a Hampton bid for six points in the first round on the Algona 19 yard line. Algona rriarched 59 yards to the Hampton 26 to the start of the second Stanza. Three pass completions, one to Jim Cowan, one to Dieter Gruner and-another to Jerry Rupp from the trusty right arm of Richardson, plus a 12 yard jaunt by the quarterback were the long gainers. The ball went to Hampton when Richardson fumbled, Hampton couldn't move and pn a fourth down and five situation attempted to punt. The snap from center was fumbled, the intended punter recovered, but Algona took aver on downs on the Hampton 21.

The 1956 Cornbelt champs, Ruthven,'stinging from a defeat at the hands of Graettinger the week before, bottled the Indians effectively all night. Offensive' punch for the winners was furnished-by Al Reinders, halfbac^, who scooted i20 yards for one score and plunged two for another. Bruce Iverson, who skipped 50 yards for -a TD and Willie Parks, who added the final tally with a oneryard plunge. The defensive work of the Ruthven line was outstanding all night. their first touchdown. Schreiber counted from the two yard line in the second stanza to run the count to 13-0 at halftime. Larson tossed a 22-yard strike to Clarence Rezac in the third period to make it 20-0 before Thompson's Darrell Haag went to work.

Upper Des Molnes~3 line set up the touchdown pass to Gruner. A pass for the point after touchdown fell short. Hampton Takes Over Hampton marched 65 yards after the next kickoff to go ahead two minutes before the halftime intermission. Marvin (Bull) Karsjens, 206 pound fullback, gained 56 of the yards, including 36 yards on the scoring play. His placekick i put the home club ahead for good. -Algona put together another march to the Hampton 22 as the half ended. The ' final period was all Hampton's after the teams played on fairly even terms during the third quarter. Hampton, which outgained rushing and passing, 118-108, in the first half by Algona, took the second half , kickoff and rambled 52 yards -for; 'ifs' second TD, with Karsjens getting the counter from the ten and kicking the extra point to make it 14-6. Algona had Hampton in a hole when the fourth quarter got underway, but a break paved the'way for an 86-yard roll to a touchdown by Karsjens. The home team was on its own 14 following a 15-yard penalty when Karsjens bolted up the middle and went all the way./ In Wrong Backfield The only trouble with the whole play was the fact a HAMPTON LINEMAN WAS IN THE ALGONA BACKFIELD BEFORE THE BALL WAS SNAPPED. THE HEADLINES- MAN DROPPED HIS FLAG, THEN PICKED IT UP AND TOLD ALGONA'S CO - CAPTAIN, HOWIE FUNK, THAT ALGONA HAD BEEN OFFSIDE, NOT HAMPTON. It was evident the offside lineman was wearing a red uniform, not white, and he charged offside from the Hampton side of the scrimmage line, not Algona's. The final Hampton six-pointer followed the interception of a Richardson pass on the Algona WITH SAVINGS There's a Flaw jn Your Plans . . .

Of the hundreds entered, only one, Robert Nielson of LuVerne, was the sole entry to pick 17 games correctly, a pretty high percentage, we'd say. He missed the two ties and picked California over Washington Stale incorrectly. So he wins $7. Second and third places were tougher. Patti Hedlund of Algona with 16 correct and a high game total score of 65 took second. Loren Nelson of Algona, with 16 correct, and a high game total of 61, took third. They get $5 and $3 respectively. Also in the 16 right bracket were Lewis Gilbride, with high point total of 60, and W. W. Gillespie with 16 correct and 59 high point total. The high game total, incidentally, was 84 — the Iowa vs. Utah State contest. ' Honorable mention with 15 correct goes to Dave Shumway, Iowa City, Mrs Gaylor Shumway, Gene Abbott, W. A. Foster, Father Rosmanru Jerry Rupp, Janelle Johnson, Mrs Les Kenyon and Al Granzow, all of Algona. The "also rans" with 14 correct were too numerous to mention, ' On the Mourner's Bench for the week are Gerald Schuller of Whiitemore and Mrs Alvin Andreasen of Burt. Each picked only six correctly. Gerald outdid himself, with 15 or 16 entries in the contest. So, the 'Ol Man has sharpened up his scoring pencils ; end is ready for another onslaught of entries for this week's games.
