Rahm Batting .571 At ISU Iowa State basebail pitcher Bill Rahm, right, an Algona native, is currently leading Cyclone batters after 29 games with a .571 average. He is shown with ISU Coach, Cap Timm. The broad-shouldered righthander, who prepped at Garrigan High and graduated in 1963, won't win the team title though. He's only been to the plate seven times officially, with four hits, two runs scored, and eight total bases. Bill has exerted more energy throwing the baseball than hitting it. As a Cyclone reliever and spot starter, he shows 28 innings pitched in 11 games (most on the staff) with 33 hits given up and 21 runs, 16 of them earned. That's a 5.14 earned run average. The one-time three-sport man in high school has a 1-2 record with 16 strikeouts and 17 base on balls given up. Half of Bills's quartet of base knocks have been the extra sack type, one home run and a double. Altogether, he's batted in six runs on those four hits.

LuVerne High School's baseball team won the statistics, but lost the ball game Monday night at Bancroft, in a contest with St. John's. The score was 12 to 7, in favor of St. John's. However, the LuVerne club walloped 11 hits, to only four for Bancroft, but a big sixth inning by St. John's turned the trick. The key to the ball game was 17 walks issued by four LuVerne pitchers. It might be added that they were all freshmen or sophomores, however, Barry Selby hurled two innings, Duane Will for one, Doug Nelson for three, and Terry Warmbier for one. St. John's used Vaske, Nemmers and Diers on the mound. Roger Hansen, a LuVerne star, was not present for the game, which had a possible bearing on the outcome. Nelson of LuVerne went four for four at the plate, and Selby contributed two doubles. Bancroft's hits came from Hatten, who had a pair, Meyer, and Vaske who smacked a double, the best hit of the night for St. John's. The LuVerne team will play Algona High this afternoon (Thursday) at 4:30 p. m. on the Bulldog diamond, Algona Gridder To Germany, All-Star Game Paul Seller, ex-Garrigan football star and Notre Dame All American, has a busy summer ahead.
