The Lions dropped a 1-0 decision to Algona here last Thursday afternoon, the third straight loss by a margin for Coach Sherm Arends club. Squad members are, front row, left to right, Larry Casey, Dennis Barber, Lee Schipull, Dale Fans Sot Money's Worth At First Race Program Fans were promised thrills, spills and fast cars by Promoter Dwiglit Cook - and that's exactly what 1,200 of them got at the fairgrounds Friday night as the super stock car season was kicked off. And it will be more of the same at Kossuth Speedway every Friday night this summer. Besides the excitement and good driving (in practically every event), race fans probably got the biggest charge out of seeing the type auto that will run here this season. Boy, there was variety - to say the least and the 23-car field is certain to grow as more cars are completed and made ready to run. Shiney Hilbert proved to be the top man on opening night. A spin-out on tne dusty fourth turn near the end of the feature kept him from taking that one, but before he lost control in that event, he won everything in sight. Hilbert had the best time trial, a mark of :19.42; followed it with a rather easy win in the trophy dash; then captured the third heat race before the feature. Feature winner Loren Purvis of Ames piloted his convertible very well indeed to grab the biggest prize on a night when a $700 purse was guaranteed. He took the lead early, fought off challenges and bumping with Hilbert and went on to win going away. Butcli Householder of Algona placed second and Bud Simpson, Nevada, third, The purse will again be $700 guaranteed this week, according to Cook, who agreed with many fans when the engines died down Friday night that the set of races was one of the finest on opening night in history here. Results: Time trials-1. Hilbert, :19.42; 2. Gene Schattschneider, -.19.48; 3. Householder, :19.68. Trophy dash- 1. Hilbert; 2. Householder; 3.Schattschneider. First heat - 1. Bill Sharp; 2.

Feature - 1. Purvis; 2. Householder ; 3. Simpson. There were a number of spin- outs and two rollovers. Most spectacular occurred during the ANOTHER BIG SUPER STOCK CAR RACE $700 PURSE A wild pitch in the homo half of the eighth inning, which allowed Roger Meyer to bounce homo with a run, gave Algona's Bulldogs a ' 1-0 victory over LuVerne before a large crowd in the season opener hero Thursday afternoon. The win was the second without a defeat for the locals, both over LuVerne. The two clubs completely disregarded the % degree boat anil winds that at times made fly balls turn loops - and the result was a well-pl.r.od contest that lacked onh one thiiu; - hitting. LuVenu'- managed four hits in the fra\ to two for the winners. Algona committed Uo errors and LuVerne three. Doug Nelson of tht- Lions and Dale Pedersen of tho Hulldogs faced each other on the hill for seven frames, then Cr:ii£ Espe took over for the locals and set the visitors down in order in the top of the extra iimiiu:. Algona got the game's onl\ run when Meyer got hit by a pitch to open the inning. An error on an attempted sacrifice by Bob Farnliam put runners on second and third with none out - and when Nelson fired wild moments later with Pedersen at the plate, Meyer plated the counter. There weren't many threats in the contest. LuVerne had runners cut down at second and third during a probable uprising in the top of the second and Pedersen died on third in the last of the same inning. The Bulldogs had Schipull, Craig Stripling, Terry Warmbier, Larry Curry and Terry Vaudt. Second row, left to right, Robert Brainerd, David Ristau, Paul Swanson, Barry Selby, Duane Will, Doug Nelson, Denny Hanselman and Daryl Trauger.

Bud Petersen flipped once during the third heat in the backstretch. the sacks jammed with two out in the last of the seventh, but Warmbier made a nice running catch of Tom Claude's soft liner Top plays of the game were turned in by Schipull of the Lions and Espe of the Bulldogs. Schipull knocked down a hot liner by Espe near third in the fifth and threw him out and Espe came up with a neat off-the-grass grab in left an inning or so later. Nelson walked four and hit Meyer twice while whiffing eight, Pedersen walked and struck out four, while Espe struck out one in his inning. The win was his second this season. He won 15 without a loss a year ago.
