AIN STEM give fans preview on *fF?/ .:•- ' , . • JULIAN CHRIICHILLI* •'.-*". IT IS RECOGNIZED that the generals who master- the battle at Gettysburg in the Civil War did some of the best planning in military history once the accidental bat- t'es began to Unfold ... so much so that many of the Nazi Germany generals of World War 2 visited Gettysburg at one time or another in the 1930's to study their art ... one of them was the "Desert Rat." Gen. Rommel , . . and they put to good use what they learned at Gettysburg during campaigns during World War 2. CHILDREN, like adults, are better travelers and are not nearly at crabby on full stomach*. WE WERE TOLD by a taxi driver in Washington, D. C. that quite by accident, a clerk in the U. S. Patent office building in Washington discovered that the Bell Telephone Co. had never taken out a patent for the telephone . . . and he was paid handsomely for discovering the oversight, we were informed! Speaking of taxi drivers,, there is nothing so cheap as a taxi ride in New York, particularly compared to the fantastic prices charged for just about everything else in the nation's largest city . . . some of the tabs we picked up for just a light family breakfast in New York were astronomical but you can ride about anywhere in Manhattan for less than a dollar . . . the meters go up just a nickel at a time over a distance of two or three city blocks. > . . One taxi driver in New York told us, after a long disertation on the undesirability of living there, that he'd "like to get so far away it would take a 72-cent postcard to reach him" . . . but he'd probably be homesick if you took him away from the city for more than a week- . ONE OF IKE'S frequent golfing partners at Gettysburg is the chairman of the Board of Directors of the Pepsi Cola company, who has an estate right next to the ex-president . . . Titonka Topic editor Phil Jaren tells of a recent visit to the Eisenhower farm near Gettysburg and as luck would have it, Ike drove down the lane to the small guardhouse at the entrance just as the Jarens were preparing to leave . they shook hands with the former president and he chatted for a few minutes before departing. , BETWEEN the oldest son and I, we bought just about every newspaper between Algona and New York and back again and both agreed that the best all-around paper we read was the WASHINGTON POST ... the New York Times was a close second and undoubtedly is the most complete paper in the United States ... but maybe just a bit too detailed for our tastes . . . you realize just how inadequate your Des Moines Register is when you see some really top newspapers! BORROWED FROM the Rotary Rag: A young man entered a tobacconist's shop and asked for a package of cigarettes. "What kind?" asked the clerk. ."Any kind — I'm 'not fussy, ''-was the response, ^ ^ "Filter tip or plain?" "Plain." "Mentholated or straight?" "Mentholated." , "Crushproof box or soft pack?" "Never mind," said the man. "I think I've just kicked the habit." * * * THE NEW YORK METS baseball team is a sports phenomenon .:. . New Yorkers took them to their hearts the moment they were organized and although they are slightly more proficient at their art today than they were five years ago, the Mets are still in the National League cellar and do some things on the field and at the plate that turn a manager's hair gray. But New York fans love them as is evidenced by crowds of 40,000 and 50,000 for just an average game . . . they don't seem to care whether they win or lose, which in itself is a sports rarity today, and when they win a game or two their supporters flip. They go to the games to be entertained and delight in some of the miscues the team performs . . . some of the oldtime heroes are the fumbling and bungling players of the early Met days a couple of years ago. * * * MANY OF comedian Johnny Carson's facial expressions and remarks more than casually resemble Jack Benny's humor, don't they? Incidentally, most of the talent for the show is selected by Carson himself, not the writers or producers. Outlook bright at Sentral with 14 lettermen back Fonton — Fourteen letter^ men and several outstanding prospects make things bright in the Sentral high school football camp this fall. The Satellites open their 'season Friday, Sept. 15, at Kanawha in a non-conference game. Lettermen back are seniors Larry Peter, Randy Bierle, Joe Priebe, Terry Brekke, Owen Kerber and Bob Krause; juniors Jerry Nerem, Ken Marlow, Jim Geitzenauer, Bob Bierle, Lenny Hassel, Dave Marlow, Ross Johnson and Jim Bollig. Others on the squad are junior .Gary Eimers; sophomores Mark Voigt, John Shaw, Gary Laabs; freshmen Randy Vaudt, Lee Dreyer, Joe Sullivan, Steve Newbrough, Dave Newbrough, Mark Can- gestad, Tom Votteler, Steve Cherland, Ted Pompe, Dave Voigt and Mike Berkland. Mark Voigt and Gary Elmers are listed as outstanding candidates for first string recognition. The Satellites should have a good passing attack and strong running from the fullback post as well as plenty of experience and good hustle. They lack a great amount of speed, depth or size, how* ever. They had a 5-3 mark last year. The schedule: Sept. 15 — Kanawha, there Sept. 22 — L-Central, here Sept. 29 — Titonka, there Oct. 6 — Armstrong, here Oct. 13 — Swea City, there Oct. 20 — W-Crystal L, there Oct. 27 — Thompson, here Nov. 2 — Open date SmiM oaptain in oross country 'Bruce Sundet, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Sundet of Algona, is a member of the cross country squid at Luther college at Decorah this fall The Norsemen witfc QIC largest squad in history, have won the )owa Conference crown the past three years. Sundet, a senior, is captain of the team which open* a 12- meet card Saturday, Sept 16 with an intersquad meet. USE THE "PEACH" TO REACH *7,OQO H0MISI 1,000 see first serimnage at Garrigan field • The two Algona football teams put on a pigskin preview before about 1,000 fans at the Garrigan field in the first of an annual pre-season scrimmage with the pep clubs benefiting from the proceeds. Oarrigan's first string rolled up • 464 advantage over the second crow in two quarters of play before Coach Beanie Cooper threw in the reserves for the final 12-minut4 session with no points scored. Algona high school's first offensive unit had a tougher time and scored just three times for an 18-0 win over the second crew in three quarters of play. The offense on both teams kept the ball the entire game: . Senior halfback Rich Black scored all three touchdowns for the Bulldog offense on runs of 17, 9 and 28 yards — one TD in each quarter. A long pass set up the first score. The first string rolled up 17 first downs but the defense gave ground grudgingly and showed up well. COACH KEITH Christie used only 27 boys, with three others on the injured list. They were Phil' Bode, Randy Bleich and Mike French. Christie used last year's regular quarterback Roger Barr and junior Tim Black at the signal-calling spot. Rich Black and Randy Riedinger did some fine running. The offensive unit which started included ends Tom Jones and Duane Hunt, tackles Jim Utt and. Bruce Bennett, guards Mike Dreyer and Randy Calhoun; center Don Hagen; and backs Riedinger, Rich Black, Larry Taylor and Roger Barr. The defensive units included linemen Steve Chrischilles, Neal Smith, Brad Farnham, Rick Post, Steve Voyles. Kenny Marshall and Tom Parsons and backs Jeff Gilmore, Tim Clark, 1 Mike Bett^ ;i Mh'd' Greg Allen.' . •'' •••*•• ";•• .". The Bulldogs probably didn't look as sharp as Garrigan at this stage but they appeared to have more depth. THE BEAR offense rolled up 16 first downs in two quarters of play before retiring for the night and turning the game over to the second and third stringers. Cooper uncorked two fine halfbacks in Mike Schilti and John Mertz plu« the powor running of fullback Jack Muller and some good duty by junior quarterback Tom Black. The offense kicked only once. Schiltz scampered over from four yards out for the first touchdown and John Mertz climaxed a second drive with a four-yard dash in the opening quarter. Schiltz got another on a seven-yard dash to start the second period and then the 215-pound Muller rambled 65 yards to make it 27-0. Black passed to Mertz for a 35-yard touchdown play shortly after and then ran 22 and 50 yards for the final two TD's. DAVE MCCARTHY kicked most of the extra points while running one over also. The.Bears looked potent in their first public outing. Muller could end up high in all- state circles if he has a good year. There are some good Bear men in the line not the least of whom are Dave McCarthy and Kevin O'Brien. This could be another good club for Cooper and Garrigan. The Bear lineups included: Tom Black, Bill Richter, John Mertz, Mike Schiltz, Dave McCarthy, Jerry Plathe, Kevin O'Brien, Marvin Kohlhaas, Luke Kollasch, Steve Youngwirth, John Winkel, Jack Muller. Tom Froehiich, Steve Reding, Larry Hilbert, Pt»il Rich, ter, Jim Boudewyns, Steve Mergen, Mike Elbert, Joe Detrick, Steve Erpelding, Mike Hansen, Jim Lallier, Mike Welp, Steve Erpelding.

What Are the Advantages of Fall Fertilization? • It astOret you of more time next spring to get your crop planted early. Each day's delay in planting corn .when soil conditions are right can cut yields by one or two bushels per acre. •• ' £'. .,.•:.' • Reduces-soil compaction. Fields are usually drier and firmer in the fall than in the spring. If the soil is ; compacted in the fall, the damage will be corrected by freeling, thawing, wetting, and drying during the winter. Compaction occurring in the spring may remain through the growing season. • Fertilizer prices are lower in the fall, and your Cargill fertilizer supplier has more time to provide the good .service you expect and are entitled to. -if • Proper fall fertilization speeds up the decomposition of crop residues. The stalks, roots, and stubble are '.. turned into rich humus more rapidly. How about joss of Hulrients? The Univtrsity of Minnesota states, "Fall applications of phosphorous and potassium are acceptable on UNFROZEN FIELDS of all soil types." However, they caution against fertilizing STEEPLY SLOPING, FROZEN GROUND where there is danger of the fertilizer being washed off by heavy rains or rapidly melting snow, Plow-Down vs. Disk-In 'Plowing down fertilizer is more effective than disking it into plowed ground. With plow down, the nutrients are in moist soil where they are available to the growing plant during periods when the topsoil is too dry to supply nutrients. Wbal ibwt Mirogm? Ammonium nitrogen applied in the fall is held by the soil clay particles and organic matter and cannot move very far until it is nitrified by soil bacteria. How soon nitrification occurs depends mainly upon soil temperature after application. Most agronomists agree that fall applications of nitrogen should be delayed until the soil temperature at 4 inches depth is 50° F. or less. Many farmers apply half of their ammonia needs in the fall to aid decomposition of crop residues. Fall application of nitrogen is not recommended on SANDY SOILS due to the possibility of lost by leaching. Make arrangements now for all your fall fertilizer needs-•• using CARGILL Fertilizer!
