DAVE KAUFMAN And how does it feel to coach a team to on alltime winning mark we questioned Coach Judge rimsley whose high school quintet won its tenth consecutive victory against Central high of Sioux City Friday Feb 2 Very fine indeed stated the Mohawk mentor but I fear to think of what will happen to the boys at Sioux City against East This column may we explain svas written before the Mohawks clash with East Friday night What did you think of the teams play in its prolonged winning spree we continued in our third degree Well the boys look a little bet ter reluctantly admitted the Judge but there are various faults in the quintet yet w How do I think they will go in the tournaments Well thats a tough question to answer especial ly with the sectional tournament three weeks away stated the coach However if the boys im prove a little I believe we have a chance to take the sectional meet As for the district I wont say a word about that until we get through the sectional concluded the Judge From the above conversation one would almost conclude that Coach Grimaleys Red and Black cagcrs have had quite a disastrous season But for those unacquainted with the local mentors pessimistic procrastinations let us explain that the Judge has been found in an op timistic mood about twice this sea son What is so rare as a day in June An optimistic look on the Judges countenance In case you never guessed it the chief purpose of this column is to add our congratulations to the Red and Black squad and to Coach Grimsley for their feat of winning ten straight games to set an alltime mark for future prep teams to shoot at Regardless of the outcome of the East fray we say Con gratulations Who will win in the Fidac con test locally IOWA COLLEGES AS GOOD AS ANY SAYS MR 6AGLEY Mason City
