" T. C. Hutchison, Algona lawyer, suffered a heart attack at bis home Friday evening shortly after dinrier. •• He was rushed to the hospital.

First of all, Algona, which had won only two games all season, had those two victories taken away by league directors after a motion by Lone Rock. The forfeiture of victories by Algona over Whittemore and Lone Rock immediately pushed Whittemore into the top spot in the loop with a 5-1 record and put Lone Rock into a tie for second with a 5-2 mark. A<t the same time, Algoha dropped into the basement with its 0-6 mark. Reason for the action Was this — each county league team is allowed to have two (and no more) players on. its roster who reside more than 12 miles from town. All other members of the squad must live inside the 12 mile radius to be eligible. *Algona had used three players living outside the radius and thus lost its two wins. Further woes were added to the local team's record Sunday When Hunvboldt took a 1-0 verdict at the local fairgrounds. Algona had only eight men show up for the game and played the entire contest that way. West Bend topped Mallard, 16-11, Whitte* and a check-up. Mrs Edna Shifts, long-time Algona resident, entered the hos- rital Wednesday for medical :reatment. Kathy Finley, eight year old daughter of 'Mr and 'Mrs Harvey Finley, was released from 'the hospital Monday after being a patient there since the first week in" June. Kathy received a broken thigh bone in a bicycle accident. Mrs Bert Cronan was taken home from the hospital Monday after being a patient there for several weeks after suffering a broken hip.
