Field Work Slow; Wann Rain Needed Field work in Kossuth county is netting off to a pretty slow ?tavt, according to Dean Barnes, county extension director, who was queried about plowing, seed- ihp. etc.. by this newspaper Monday afternoon. "What we need is about an inch of Rood, warm rain", said Barnes, "to get all the frost out of the ground "so farmers can irally eet at their work." A few have been able to get a good start. In fact, a few seeded oats on Good Friday and some other? have been able to get going on their plowing and disking. There are still many who have .had problems with soft spots in fields, which seem to give way and bog down machinery. Many tractors have been seen resting in dec'p mud holes around the county during the past couple of weeks. According to Barnes, there is a lot more spring plowing necessary this year than normally — due to the fact early snows last fall called a halt to fall plowing about a month sooner than most- years. The work will have to be caught up with before .seeding, manure spreading and corn planting can be done. Corn planting usually gels underway about May fi-10 and continues until the end of the month. Soybeans are normally planted by then also. "It is apparent our sub-soil moisture content is more plentiful than it has been for five years or so." says Barnes. That's good news to area farmers, despite the fact many of them aren't able to get out in fields yet. A gain in sub-soil moisture should be a boon to area crops this year. Garrigan Dumps Mason City In Opener, 41 Garrigan high school's Golden Bears, champing at the bit after postponement of its early baseball games, opened the season on a sweet note Monday afternoon when they chalked up a neat 4-3 win over Mason City high school at. Bancroft in the first game of a mixed doubleheader. Mason City met St. John's of Bancroft in the second contest. Mason City took a 2-0 lead in the top of the third, but Garrigan came back with a single tally in the bottom of the fourth, then went in front, 4-2, with a three- run spurt in the last half of the fifth. Mason City rallied for a run -CHIEF* Lowest cost Sickle Bar Mower you can buy— anywhere! $154.95 1 KOSSUTH COUNTY PORTS! in the top of the seventh, but re-1 lief pitcher Chuck Heinen and his mates put out the fire to preserve the win. John Loebach hurled the first six innings for Garrigan and took the win. He walked four and whiffed one, while loser Cannella, walked one and struck out four. Oscar Froehlich was the top Garrigan hitler with three hits in four trips to the plate. Bob Schneider, Dick Heinen and Bill Rahm each had one blow for the winners, who got six hits. The losers notched five blows. Garrigan committed three errors (not bad for the first game of the season) and Mason City had four bobbles. Pitcher Heinen threw one runner out at home in the torrid seventh to save the victory.

Most recent cozy finish by the two teams was at Pocahontas in the class B division of' the Pocahontas Relays Thursday afternoon as Bayard took the championship, 29 1/3 to 29. Bayard nipped LuVerne, 30 1/3 — 30, to take the state class B indoor championship at Iowa City in March. However, LuVerne, which has become a power in state track circles under Coach Bryce Wickett, who has also coached Lu- Verne's top-flight basketball (boys and girls), and baseball for many years, posted a resounding 25-13 win over Bayard to take the B title at the Holstein Relays Apr. 8, so the Lions have managed to more than hold their own against the champs.
