Old News from the Anchor

February 22, 1962 -

Members of the Northwood-Kensett Vikings basketball team were named champions of the North Iowa Conference when they defeated Forest City in grand style here on Friday night, 93-73.  Phil Johnson had 27 points in the first half and Mike Lien added 15 in the first half to gain a comfortable lead.  Johnson completed the game with a record 36 points.

And we all know what's going to happen next.  That "comfortable lead" referenced in the article was 66 - 33.  Clearly things slowed down in the second half.  You'll recall that Johnson said in an earlier post that the team was determined not to be beaten for the season, not on the home court.

February 25, 1937 - 

Dr. H F Johnson has leased the suite in the Holland building recently occupied by Dr Paul Kase and will move his dental offices from the second floor of the Kean building to the new ground floor location Monday.  Dr. Kase will occupy the suite formerly occupied by Dr. C T Bergen.  Attorney L A Baken, who has his offices on the second floor of the Holland Building, will move to the rooms now occupied by Dr. Kase.

This history is notable for the names - H F Johnson and C T Bergen - both of them pretty directly connected to the Class of '62.  Presumably the ground floor location occupied by Johnson in 1937 is the same location as the one he used in the 50s and 60s.

L T Dillon, Northwood band director and outstanding musician, will officiate as one of the judges of the home contest of band and orchestra at the Mason City High School next Saturday.  There will be 82 band soloists and 60 orchestra soloists taking part in the contest.

Dillon, of course, has been cited frequently in this blog and once the blogmaster has in his hands the collection of photos now coming his way, will be featured in a musical slideshow focusing on his career.
