AREA SCHOOLS IN GRID KICKOFF FRIDAY Algona Hi, Emmetsburg Meet Here For Opener With three weeks of condition ing and contact drills under their belts, Algona's Bulldogs, who according to Coach Jim Hershberger looked "fair, with room for much improvement" in their final intrasquad contest last Friday night, host the Emmetsburg E-Hawks In the season opener at the new Athletic Field here tomorrow evening. Coach Clint Stille of the E- Hawks has eight lettermen, while the Bulldogs will field 10. The Emmetsburg entry will have improved quarterbacklng, with Steve Thomas, slim six-footer it the helm. According to preseason information, other top backs for the E-Hawks are Teddy Ellis, 5-10, 165 Ib, halfback and Bill Moore, 6-2, 185 Ib, fullback. In the line, Stille has built his club around Howard Reeves, Don Routh, Mike Brown, Roger Akridge and Beryl Hullend. The Lakes Conference entry is always rugged - and through the years has Inflicted plenty of bruises on the Bulldogs. Hershberger released names of players expected to play for the Bulldogs, with at least 25 to see action against the invaders tomorrow evening, At the ends, Pale Teeter, Bill Boldridge, Gary Barr and Chris Conn will see action; tackles will include Kevin Hoover, Tom Jones, Dave Camp, Max Miller and Pave Walker; guards will be Bob Bradford, Tom Samp, Tom Claude and Larry Munger; while centers include Bill Farnham, Pon Hagen and Phil Specht. Quarterbacks Mark Conn and Steve Waller are expected to share duties behind the center on offense, while halfbacks Pave Martin, Brad Kraft, Glenn Tschetter, Rich Black and Larry Scobba and fullbacks Tom Fitzpatrick and Bob Farnham are expected to carry the mail, Lettermen Include Tschetter, Scobba, Martin, Fitzpatrick, Conn, Bill Farnham, Teeter, Barr, Samp and Bradford, Several of the others listed for duty Friday saw action, although of the limited variety, last fall, while others are completely new to the varsity, Teeter and Boldridge appear to be the club's best pass receivers, with Waller and Conn both able to hit the mark at times. Teeter snared 22 passes a year ago as the Bulldogs posted a 4-3-1 mark to tie the all-time single season record for catches. Early season development of youngsters who will see action behind the lettermen promises to be the key to a successful season here. After the opener tomorrow evening, the Bulldogs play seven North Central Conference foes in a row. Garrigan At Estherville For '65 Season Start Garngan-s Golden Bears, who put on quite an offensive show In an 82-0 scrimmage Friday evening, "looked about right for this time of year," according to Coach Beanie Cooper, who spent this week with his squad making final preparations for the season opener at Estherville tomorrow (Friday) evening. Pespite the fact the offense was way ahead of the defense last 'Friday, Cooper is not satisfied 'with his team's blocking. He knows it will have to improve if the Bears are to make a good showing during a rugged eight- game slate this fall. Early-season information on the Midgets, who normally do well In the Lakes Conference, indicates Coach Chuck Uknes employs a run and shoot offense, which will feature the throwing of Alan Bolty, 5-10, 158 Ib. senior. The coach has been looking for adequate receivers in early drills. There are two promising halfbacks, Roger Guge, 6 ft., 175 Ib. junior, and Duane Pahna, 6 ft., 178 Ib. senior. Lettermen linemen Include Elaine Schenck and Mike Saul, tackles, Tom Mokle- gtad, end, Terry Aalborg, guard, and Poug Twigg, center. Uknes may also use some of the school's promising freshmen on the varsity. Coach Cooper listed his probable performers Monday. They Include: Ends - Pon Potthoff, Chuck Geilenfeld (who will also be ready for fullback) and Jim Youngwirth; tackles - John Schneider, Jack' Muller and Mike Crotty; guards- Paul Kollasch, Larry Vigdal and Gene Licktelg; centers - Pick Blelch and Penny Hudspeu; flanker - Tom Wagner; and full. back - Bill Milder, who will also back up Reding at quarterback. Pave McCarthy, sophomore, and Bob Koppen, senior, will also see action on defense. Co-captains are Joe Ringsdorf, currently on the shelf with a broken leg, and Milder. Lettermen are Bleich, Geilenfeld, Hudspeth, Milder, Potthoff, Kollasch, Vigdal, Schneider, Ringsdorf, Pick Muller, Reding and Wagner. One of Coach Cooper's prime objectives is to build reserve strength capable of replacing the veterans on the club, who must be spelled once in a while for needed rest. At the present time, the club is short on reserves, despite the large number of boys on the squad. Reding will do most of the throwing for the club, with Potthoff and several others slated to be on the receiving end* Cooper would like to have good balance between his passing and running game - and if it develops, the Bears will Improve on last season's record.

Wildin Point Champ For Third Straight Year Les Wiidin, 1 left, Algona farmer, who has proven time after time he is the top modified stock car driver in this entire area, showed his heels to the field in the Season Championship feature before a large crowd Friday night and for the third straight year copped the point championship at Kossuth Speedway. Wildin's victory in the last race of the 1965 season came easier than expected. A couple of pretty good cars had been scratched earlier and didn't run in the finale, but there were enough left to give Les all he wanted in the way of battle. Top challengers proved to be Freddie Funk, Stacy Redmond and Joel Rasmussen, but they couldn't stay with Wildin who won handily. Redmond, winner of two earlier races, probably would have pushed Wildin hard, but found himself unable to get through the pack soon enough to present much of a challenge. Redmond copped the first heat, topping Wildin and Rasmussen, then took the trophy dash, beating the same pair, while Leo Christensen and Funk also registered heat wins. While most of the modified events were fast, most of the excitement during the night came during the hobby stock heat race, with 12 cars in at the start. Butch Householder, who later took the feature to ^become the 1965 point champion, hurtled through the mob and took a lead that was to stand up for victory, but not before several other drivers had trouble. Pon Poocy and Rich Yeoman spun out and Orie Shipler, top competitor for three years, hit the wall in front of the grandstand and was sidelined for the night. As the hobby feature got underway, fire was discovered in the floor of the south end of the grandstand and the race was halted while firemen put out the small blaze. Householder then posted his second win. Results: Hobbies - first heat: 1. Householder, 2. Pon Hilbert, 3. Jerry McArthur; feature: 1. Householder, 2. Poocy, 3, Jim Wolf. Modifleds - first heat: 1, Redmond, 2. Wildin, 3, Rasmussen; second heat: 1. Christensen, 2, Gene Schattschneider, 3. Gale White; third heat; 1. Funk, 2. Rex Garr, 3. Pick Simpson; trophy dash; 1.
