ALGOHA GRID TEAMS HOST TOUGH FOES Loop Title Is Prize - Bulldogs Vs. W-C Lynx Algona's Bulldogs, who hare been underdogs before this year and escaped to win their first six games, face the greatest odds of the 1965 season here tomorrow night when they host the powerful Webster City Lynx in a North Central Conference contest that will settle the loop race. On paper, the visiting Lynx, also 6-0 for the year and tied with Coach Jim Hershberger's club at the top of the standings in the league, rate as favorites by from 18.5 to 23 points (3 to 4 touchdowns). It's very doubtful, however, that any of the Bulldogs think so. Here's how the teams compare so far: Algona has downed Emmetsburg 14-13; Hampton 1312; Clear Lake 18-0; Clarion 14-6; Iowa Falls 33-14; and Humboldt 33-13; while the Lynx have dumped Spencer 31-6; Eagle Grove 14-0; Clarion 7-0; Clear Lake 50-0; Humboldt 55-0; and Hampton 34-7. On the season so far, Algona has out-scored all opponents, 125-58, for an average score of 20.8-9.7 per game; while Webster City holds a 191-13 bulge in total points and a 31.8-2.2 average per game. Taking the differences, the Lynx are better by 18.5 points per game than the locals. A break-down of jobs done against common foes this year finds the Lynx better by 23 points, when comparing Algona and Webster City scores against Hampton, Clear Lake, Clarion and Humboldt. Only against Clarion can Algona be given the edge, then by one point, but in the other three contests Webster City holds bulges of 26, 32 and 35 points, respectively. Webster City, as usual was selected by coaches in the loop as the probable champion this tall. Coach Harley Rollinger had five lettermen backs and six more in the line when the season began, plus a wealth of underclassmen who have developed as the season progressed. Webster City depth, always a problem, is again present and the Lynx seem to strike early and often as they wear down the opposition. Coach Hershberger stated this week that "we've got boys this year that want to beat Webster City." On the surface, this statement might not mean much to Mr. Average Pan, but there have been many times down through the years when local squads didn't have boys that wanted to beat the Lynx. The Bulldogs are expected to go all out, combining the running of Dave Martin, who is approaching the all-time record for rushing yardage, Tom Fitzpatrick, Glenn Tschetter and Bob Farnham, with the passing of Mark Conn to targets Dale Teeter and Bill Boldridge, to give the Lynx all they want in the way of battle. The defense, which has shown slight weaknesses during the last hall action the last two times out, will have to play four quarters In this one, or it's "goodbye Nellie I" Mistakes will have to be kept at a minimum if the powerful Lynx, who undoubtedly will try to rack up a convincing win to stay near the top in the ratings. 8th Graders Win A Pair Algona public's 8th grade football team wound up its season with a 13-0 victory over Estherville here Monday afternoon, giving the locals a 2-1-1 record for the season, Robbie Claude tallied the first touchdown and Jack Waller on a quarterback sneak added the extra point. John Chrischilles intercepted an Estherville pass and galloped for the second TD. Duane Hunt was stopped just of the goal on the extra point try. The 8th grade reserves also defeated the Estherville reserves, 14 to 0. Gary Gade scored both touchdowns for Algona.

(UDM Newsfoto by Don Smith) GRID GUESSERS 12-Algona, (la.) Upper Des Molnes Thursday, October 21, 1965 One extreme to the other, that was the average luck of our Grid Guesser entries this past week as compared with the Saturday before. The four ties in the 20 games for last Saturday kept the averages down. Whereas 20 out of 20 won a week ago Saturday, the best entry for last Saturday's game was 15 correct out of 20, and the first place winner was John Grotte of Algona, who usually manages to win at least one award a year. The high game total for the week was 51 (Arkansas 27, Texas 24) and thereon hinged the outcome of the next winners. Gladys Shumway of Algona had 14 correct and a high game pick of 52. Allen Kramer of Rlceville, Iowa, also had 14, and a high game total of 49. Just a shade behind, all with 14 correct, but a couple of points farther off on the high game total were Ed Sindelar, Algona (54); Dick Palmer, Algona (54); Julian Chrischilles, Algona (48); and Tom Baas, West Bend (48). Also with 14 right and placing on the Honor Roll for the week •were Michael Jackson, Lone Rock; and Bob Williams, Jane Fraser, Dave Hanselman and Milo Durant, all of Algona, and Arnold D. Andreasen, Minneapolis and Louis Relmers, So. Milwaukee, Wise. Mourner's Bench Durant, Jr., Algona. 7 right - Larry Muehe, Wesley, and Milo The Post Office did receive the new 11-cent International Telecommunication Union commemorative (100) years but I was told that the supply was limited to 200 copies 1. e. 4panes. Whether tills was the local order or the amount automatically sent I do not know. This denomination is the 1 ounce rate for first class international mail and also the air postal rate. Demand for the value would be limited. However, this illustrates the point raised in a previous column concerning the assertion that collectors could be adequately served without the postal agency. In fairness to all, any collector of sheets would have to do without. I don't know how many plate collectors there are, but only four could be served. The same would apply to the Mr. Zip blocks. The new order restrictions will force many to do without a plate on a current issue, order $25 worth of stamps from Washington in order to get the plate at face, or pay what will likely be a fairly substantial premium in the market. It won't do any good to complain on the local level. The fault lies in Washington and proper service will be restored only if the powers that be are convinced that voters are irritated. So direct your protest to the Postmaster General. The stamp, incidentally, is very attractive. - o - Next week is the annual Clarion show at the IOOF Hall, Saturday and Sunday, with doors opening; at 10 both days. Auctions wiu be conducted both days, but I wasn't informed as to the time or provided any specific information on the range of material. With numerous exhibits, free admission, door prizes, lunch available in the hall, and som& 16 dealers in the bourse area, a good turnout should be assured. - o - A lot of publicity has been given to the price advances in various coins the past few years. Many stamp collectors have been lured into the new field. Perhaps to their regret. I was amazed at the price advances in material of the past few years, particularly for Western Europe. This pertains to both regular as well as commemorative issues. Regulars In mint often take a rapid jump once they become obsolete, since many just don't think about saving them. The President Heuss regulars of Germany issued in 1954 and current until 1961 is a case in point. Two values Involved In a color change with an original face of some 30 cents now catalog $35. The 1959 music sheet which was available for around 50 cents would now command around $2 and it will continue to rise. Scott oddly quotes different prices for the various stamps on the sheet, although the numbers available would be equal. Stamps of the mid-fifties of the semi-postal type have catalog values ranging. from $15 to $25 each. I stress again that although coins have pushed stamps out of the spotlight here, world demand continues for stamps. World crowns with issues as low as 100,000 still seem to be in plentiful supply and the prices are still subject to discounting. A Western European stamp issue in this quantity would be a rich man's item, - o - There may be some action in the market for Indian Head pennies of the common dates. I have noted more buying ads lately and one recent ad offers 17 1/2 cents each for up to 100,000. I wonder why one dealer would want so many? The Churchill crowns will be out soon but this will not be a limited issue. The British government lias promised to mint until the demand is satisfied, • Advance orders are being taken at $2 and up. This is too much, unless you insist on being one of the first to have one, The face value is 70 cents and you shouldn't pay more than $1.50. With patience you will be able to get them in the $1 range. - o - With such extensive minting, it is not surprising that a die change was made on the Canadian 1965 dollar. This change in the numeral 5 consists of the tail which went from pointed to blunt. Except in the proof sets, one variety will likely be about as common as the other. Opening prices are reasonable and in some cases identical for the two. What amused me was the full page ad using such words as "important" and "exciting". A minor adjustment in lettering doesn't strike me as important and magnification is not exactly an exciting pastime. The variety has nothing to do with the basic design and general attractiveness of the coin. The general collector won't care which one he has. This is for the specialist. -o - Shortly after this column was written, word was received that the P. 0. Department has restored normal service at the Agency at increased handling charges. So you see, public opinion is still a factor. Scholastic Honors Carl G. Buchanan, son of Mr. and Mrs. Allen Buchanan, was among nine students named to Phi Alpha Mu at the University of Iowa, at the annual University Recognition Banquet, Monday evening, an honorary scholastic organization for members of social fraternities. Austin Pacelli To Face Bears Saturday Eve Garrlgan's Golden Bears, still better than average on defense, but lacking offensive balance, will try for victory number two here Saturday night when they host Austin Pacelli. It will be pad's Night, with the kick-off slated at 8 p. m. and Coach Beanie Cooper's club will be out to improve upon a 1-4-1 season mark. The Bears dropped their third straight last Friday night, a 19-0 decision to Kuemper at Carroll, putting on a good defensive show after the half, but unable to dent the scoring column despite the heroics of Dick Bleich. Bleich, who has to be one of the best small runners in the entire area, caused Kuemper all kinds of trouble with his kick returns and runs after catching passes. Cooper stated after the game that Dick was by far the finest football player on the field. Bear opponents, however, can too easily spend their time keying defensive maneuvers to Bleich, so are able to stall the Garrig'an offense in time to halt scoring drives. IF the Bears put all their eggs In one basket (offense and defense) this Saturday night, they're going to give the Pacelli crew, which has another fine record this season, all it wants in the way of opposition. The Bears, who have also had more than their share of injuries this season (Joe Ringsdorf, Bill Reding and Gene Lickteig all out with broken bones), may (or may not) have the services of Ringsdorf this weekend.

Reding, one of the top passers in the area, sustained a broken thumb in the second game of the year, and Lickteig fractured a leg in the Kuemper contest. Coach Cooper is hoping to rally the team for the final two games of the season after what he termed "the poorest team effort of the season" against Kuemper, Offensively, the Bears managed only 54 net yards, rushing and passing against Dubuque Wahlert and 63 in the same departments against Kuemper so a revival of the running and passing game is a must. The Bears will attempt to get the revival started this weekend.
