A CLASSIFIED AD "" WILL GET FAST RESULTS Becker Fires No-Hitter As Bears Down W-Bend Joe Becker right-handed his way to a no-hitter and got in the act as a batter while Garrl- gan High School's baseball team put together a pair of good innings on the way to a 7-0 victory over West Bend here Monday night. The victory gave Coach Steve McCall's club a 3-3 season mark. Becker and Al Blair, young West Bend chucker, met head-on through three innings — in fact, West Bend mounted the game's most serious threats to that point, getting runners to third base in the first and third frames - before the Bears blasted the game wide open with a five run bar rage in the home half of the fourth. Garrigan batted around during the big inning. Becker opened it with a walk. He then stole second and raced home with the first run of the fray when Jack Midler banged a single to right for the Bear's first bingle. Muller went to second on a balk and came home when brother Dick Muller slashed a line single to left Dick went to second on an infield hit by John Mertz, and they were sacrificed to second and third by Don Courtney. Lallier whiffed, but Muller scored on a wild pitch and Mertz went to third. Elbert walked and stole second and Tom Black drove In the final pair with a bloop single to right. An error gave Garrigan a shot at its final two runs in the bottom of the fifth. Jack Muller reached on the miscue and darted to third when Dick singled to center. Dick then went to second and Mertz slammed a shot to left, scoring Jack. Dick also headed for home and Jarred the ball loose from catcher Shellmeyer of West Bend, also scoring when the latter dropped the ball. Shellmeyer was momentarily stunned and had to leave the game, reportedly suffering from loss of memory. Becker gave up three passes, but struck out 11 of the visitors, who committed six errors.

With this one, there's no more slowing down to wait on the engine, no more yo-yo business on the header control. No more wrestling with halfway steering systems. The best in cabs if you want one. The 525 with 11 or 13-ft. headers, 2 or 3-row corn heads—gives you the same operating comfort, clean harvesting and freedom from field delay as the biggest combine in anyone's soybeans or corntield. You start with full 83 engine horsepower and the same long 136-inch wheelbase as used on the biggest Olivers. Twenty-eight inch width goes straight through from feeder housing to the end of the straw walkers. You have almost 3 horsepower for every inch of threshing width. Plus the flywheel action of a 22-inch diameter cylinder with positive chain drive. Also time-saving 62-bushel bin and 50-gallon fuel tank. You'll never really believe 525 performance until you get behind the wheel. But don't settle for less. You don't have to. OLIVER FOR MEN WHO GROW JOE BRADLEY EQUIPMENT Algona
