No Legion Team To Play For Bancroft This Year The Bancroft American Legion Post has decided to discontinue Its Junior Legion baseball team after about 35 seasons. Principal reason is the Bancroft post's inability to support the team financially. Tony Schneider, who recently resigned as team manager, estimates that it cost about $1,000 per season to support the team and send It on the road. Another reason Is the difficulty in finding a local man to take on the job as coach and manager. Last year, the Bancroft Legion team was In the Southern Minnesota American Legion League. In 1S62 the team went to the National American Legion Regional Tournament, which co- vered 7 states. According to Schneider, the team averaged about 30 wins and 3 or 4 losses per year in the last 7 years and has won 5 State Championships in the last 21 years. Lone Rock Man Shooting For A 200 Bu. Yield Is there a ceiling on corn yields ? Research personnel and farmers have speculated on this subject for years. During the past summer a large group of farmers from across the country put to work all the latest know- how to find out the top yield potential of their farms. The common goal was to produce 200 bushels of No. 2 corn on one acre or more. An area farmer who took part in the 200-bushel program this past season is Ray Laabs from Lone Rock. Laabs produced a yield of 155.93 bushels on his measured acre with DeKalb XL- 45. Sixteen of the 750 farmers from 26 states participating in De- Kaltfs 200 Bushel Club actually surpassed their goal. The top yield of 217 bushels of No. 2 corn was turned in by Emanuel Weibert of Wiggins, Colo. Western corn farmers dominated the top yields with six coming from Colorado and six from California. All of these yields were harvested from irrigated land. Iowa, Minnesota and Illinois farmers accounted for the four Tuesday, April 18, 1967 Algona (la.)
