J-Alflona Uppsf Dei Tus*day, May ft, 194§ Algona K. C. 7, Whittemore 3, S Si Joe, Hurt Letts Creek Other Winners It was a perfect day for baseball, Sunday^ except'For the wind —'and the Wind accounted for an unusually high number of fielding errors in the'first round games of the Kdssuth Baseball League. Algeria's K. C. team downed Whittemore, 7 to 3. St. Joe dropped Fenton, 10 to 7, Burt overpowered St. Benedict, 8 to 1, and Lptts Creek won a good contest from Jjone Rock, 5 to 2. Team Balieries Kuecker and Hanifan were the" Fentpn batteries, while Johnson, Thilges, J2rbes, and Miller worked for St. Joe. Bjei'stedt, Walsh and Long were the Lone Rock batteries.v and Lolts Creek had Lucdtke and Lane on- the hurling end and Leininger and Wichtendahl be- BILL SEZ: Fellers .it's "mooiiny"—that's whut it is! Last week, a lady who lives right here in our fair city out oil McGregor street wrote in a |ong letter panning us hardworking wriiers like T. Post, Reese and myself. She even sed she bet my wife kerrected my spelling, which is really "mootiny". All you good fishing fellers know I kin spell real good. And then she sed "who would want to get in a boat with me?" Well, fellers, you know I got a repulashun for not getting in any leaky old boats myself, to say nothing of with any skittish womenfolk. I'll admit a fishing fellor came t'other day and wanted me to quit writing about fish- in' and go fishin' instead. Sed I wouldn't make so menny mistakes thai way. Even so— that was a terrible panning that good ludy gave us writin' guys. Ennyhow, we sure been hav- Sn' fun here in Barry's peddling this fishing tackle we got in. I kinda go easy showing it now, becuz last week I was demon- stratin' a rod and reel for a guy, and I hooked myself—you know where. This "Lazy Ike" plug is sure making a big hit with the iish- in' fellers. If I was a fish, I don't know if I'd go for it, but then I ain't never been a fish. We sold a lot of "Lazy Ikes" lately. We got all kinds of sinkers, hooks, bobbers and all that sluff._ And sum real nice rods Ukin buy for 4 up to 12 Vi bucks. These fishing fellers that got one tell me they like 'em real nice like. Fellers, here's a hot one. We got in a big box of whut looked like just a bunch of rope to me. I started unpacking it, and the first thing I knew I was sure all tangled up. I hollered for help and Glen and Ambrose got me out. Whut do you think? Those were seining nets! Sure was something. But we got 'em out now and ready to sell. Also sum vory fine minnie buckets. A lot of Dads around town been asking me about fishing kits for their kids. Seems like these kids know more about fishing than their old men. Well, we went right to bat and now we got sum swell fishing kits for little fishing fellers— you can take 'em away for $2.50, $4.50 and $6.75. All the stuff right in one kit. These fellers that are going 'way up north are still after me to go along. I'm trying to duck out, becuz it looks to me like these fellers are really going to fish. Drop in and look us over—I mean our fishin' tackle. BILL BARRY, JR. hind the plate. St. Joe and Fenton eaph collected a dozen hits, Lone Rock and Lolts Creek had six each, and Burt banged out six safeties while St. Benedict was held to two.
