C. barrage of hits and runs at their new park Sunday as the locals left Whittemore plastered in the dust of the evening shadows with an 18-0 defeat. Nothing quite like it has been scon in these parts for some time. The murderous K. C. attack started when H. Mevers cracked a home run-in the first inning. In the second frame, brothers Bob and Gordie Winkcl blasted out round trippers in rapid succession as K. C.s moved to a 3-0 lead. And then came the terrible third. 8-Run Inning Winters led off with a triple and scored on Ringsdorfs second single of the game. MeMurray sandwiched a double between two fly-outs to center field, scoring Ringsdorf. Gordie Winkel then, singled home MeMurray. Don Meyer, H. Meyers and "Lefty" Long followed with singles and all trotted across home plate when Winters blasted his second triple of the inning. Ringsdorf grabbed his second single of the inning but D. Winkel j'lied out to end the K. C. parade. When passing out laurels, southpaw Don Meyers is, not to lie forgotten. The little lefthand^- er handcuffed Whittemore with one hit. a fluke single 'in the fourth by Lane. He struck out an amaxing 10 batsman. In two innings he whiffed all three batters. In six innings he retired the side in order. Besides, the single, he allowed only one walk and hit one batter. Si.

Fcnton's surprising Junior Legion baseball crew broke out I with a barrage of runs in the I first two innings and coasted to a 19-6 victory over Lake Mills in the finals of the north half district tourney, last Thursday afternoon at the new K. C. diamond. It was the sensational swatting of third baseman Vic Dreyer that gave Fenton the decisive punch. In the initial frame with two man aboard, Vic slammed a long home run drive down ' the left field line td-'pu't- the colinty soys in the lead. In the second inning, an error by H. Thompson gave the Fenlon stalwarts two more runs. Thompson will be remembered by many Algona fans as ihe Forest Cily lad who spread so much woe against Algona in ihe sub- state basketball finals this year. Fenton added single runs in the third and fourth stanzas to close their scoring for the day. In the fourth, it was the amazing Dreyer who blasted in his llth run of the tourney by homering again. Lake Mills made 1 one final bid for victory in the sixth. Two Fenton errors coupled with four tingles gave the Lakers five runs but a strike-out ended the inning. Fenton moves on to the district finals at Humboldt and a possible crack at the state tournament.
