6-Algorm, (la.) Upper Des Moines Thursday, June 15, 1967 It Warmed Up Thursday It warmed up in this area Thursday - and evidence (besides the sweat that ran down the brow) above was furnished b\ small swimmers (?) at the wading pool at the Athletic Park here on East State street. The pool wasn't full - but close to it as mothers turned their little ones loose for a go at the non-briney water. The photographer couldn't figure for the life of him hcr.v the lad at far left was going to get any good out of that towel draped over his right shoulder- it was soaking wet. But then, that's the way they got when he was a kid, too ! (UDM Photo) Bill Rahm, Algona, Inks Twins Bonus Contract fc^ m BILL RAHM I \ '.

Wildin Takes Three Firsts At Jackson Les Wildin, veteran Algona stock car driver, copped most of the glory and a good share of the winnings with three first place finishes at Jackson, Minn. Speedway Saturday night in races that climaxed the annual Race Day there. Wildin climaxed a fine night of driving by taking the A feature. He earlier won the first heat and the trophy dash, setting a new track record in the first heat, a 3:20.1 clocking. Another Algona driver, Gene Schattschneider, was third in the third heat of the night. Dipped 7-2 Algona's fresh-soph baseball team dropped a 7-2 decision to Mason City there Monday, after taking an early 2-0 lead. Gary Hagen breezed through the opening three innings on the hill, then ran into trouble and allowed three runs. John Chrischilles and Dale Briggs also hurled for the locals, while Jack Waller did the catching.

Chit - Chat Espe Almost Perfect As Bulldogs Edge C-Lake, 1-0; Take Loop Top Lefty Craig Espe hurled and batted the Algona Bulldogs past Clear Lake in a North Central Conference game that pushed the locals into first place in the loop here Monday evening. Algona counted the game's only run in the home half of the fourth inning, taking a 1-0 verdict. The win was the fifth without a defeat for Coach Keith Christie's club - and upped the loop record to 3-0. Clear Lake is now 2-1 in the league. Espe's record is now the same as Die team's - 5-0. And he's 20-0 over the past two seasons. Algona's run was cozy. It was set up by a pair of walks off Ken Grabinski, Clear Lake's tall righthander. Dale Pedersen and Tom Jones (who walked three times in the contest) drew the passes with two out. Espe then tapped a grounder with the runners on the move and the throw to first was too late. Pedersen, thinking perhaps that Clear Lake had retired Espe for the final out of the frame, let up after rounding third, then got the word from Christie, headed home and barely managed to slip under the tag for the all- important counter. The Bulldogs threatened three other times, but couldn't dent the scoring column. The locals got runners on first and second in the first, second and third in the second and one man to third in the fifth. Clear Lake didn't manage a threat as Espe was nearly invincible. He didn't allow a hit (and had a perfect game going) until there was one out in the top of the seventh, then Marty McCray popped a clean single. A pop up and ground out ended the fray. Espe whiffed 16, getting 10 in a row beginning with the last man in the first through the fourth, then after the next hitter grounded out to him, struck out six more straight - running the record to 16 out of 17 during the stretch. Besides he and catcher Mike Betts, only three infielders got a chance to handle the ball. The Bulldogs managed only three hits off Grabinski, with Espe, Rog Meyer (who is now seven for 13 of this season) and Pedersen each getting one. Grabinski walked seven and struck out nine.
