Titonka Stock Driver Hurt Shiney Hilbert marked his return to action at Kossuth Speedway following two weeks at camp with a pair of victories that jumped him right back into the thick of the poiut standings during a wild set of races Friday night at the fairgrounds, Hilbert, whose wife, Peg, was the unofficial winner of the 12-woman Powder Puff Derby that followed the regular program, won the feature easily after capturing the second heat. Top time trial was turned in by Earl Tice of Ames, who placed second (a half-lap back) to Les Wildin in the trophy dash. The time trials, usually run without incident, provided one of the real thriUs of the night when a young Titonka driver, Jim Allen, lost control on the south turn of the oval and flipped his car a few times over the end of the track. The photo above shows several members of the Algona fire department, who administered oxygen to the unconscious Allen after he was pulled from his wrecked car, carrying him on a stretcher to a waiting ambulance. Allen's injuries proved to be minor. He sustained a cut on the ankle, a bump on die head and a shoulder injury, was examined at St. Ann hospital, treated and released before the program ended. Other winners Friday night included Denny Reuth, first heat; Loren Purvis, third heat ; and Don Doocy, Semi-Main. Del Stokey and Roy Peltz wound up second and third in the feature. Wildin was forced out of action during the second heat when the clutch went out of the car lie was driving. Butch Householder, point leader for the season, spun out a couple of times while running well and experienced a frustrating evening. (UDM Flash Newsfoto) Outfielder Boldridge Gets Win As Hurler Centerfielder Bill Boldridge started his first game as pitcher for Algona High Friday and the Bulldogs ran off with a 16-6 win over the Humboldt Wildcats. The North Central Conference game produced the tenth victory without a defeat for Coach Keith Christie's surprising loop leaders. It was a bit chilly throughout the game, but Humboldt struck while the iron was hot in the first inning. Boldridge walked the first two men and a single brought a 2-0 lead, the ONLY lead there was to be for the visitors. Three runs scored in Algona's second inning witli Bob Farnliam and Craig Espe (who had a sore arm) singling in runs. Then, the third inning came when Farnliam zipped home as Humboldt was catching Espe between first and second base after Espe overran the bag. Algona was just starting. Smokey Barr got things going for the Bulldogs in the third inning with a triple. Tom Claude brought Smokey in with a base knock and Craig Taylor followed with another big triple, scoring Roger Meyer, who had walked. Dale Pedersen slammed out a hit to score Taylor and then Pedersen came in when a pitch got by the catcher. Mike Betts made it six runs in the inning when he scooted across the plate on a passed ball, Humboldt surged again in the fourth inning after Boldridge put out fires in the previous two frames. It started with a wide 8-Algona (la.) Upper Oes Moines Tuesday, June 27, 1967 SPORTS throw to first base by Barr, continued with Betts dropping the ball on a close play at home, and ended with a base hit to center. Dale Pedersen then took over the mound as the first-time pitcher, Boldridge, came off the field with an ovation from the stands. Algona's fourth inning proved profitable, also, with Roger Meyer lining a long triple to deep left-center field. Roger sneaked in with another score when the catcher once again lost the ball on a pitch. Tom Jones, who returned to first base when Pedersen had to relieve Boldridge, managed a single to score Craig Taylor, another base-hitter. Jones later scored on another passed ball. It was a three-run frame and Algona led, 12-6. But the Bulldogs had to get a ten-run lead before the game could end. With encouragement from a "frost-bitten" crowd, the final rally was completed in the fifth inning as Claude, Meyer, Taylor and Pedersen crossed the plate. The Bulldogs got a lot of help from the many miscues of Humboldt's infield, plus good hitting by Taylor, Claude and others, and Dale Pedersen turned in a fine relief effort in stamping out the Wildcat threat in that crucial fourth inning and keeping it out. DOCTOR Dr. P. G. Ingham, Mapleton, was honored by the Monona County Medical association this month upon the completion of his 50 years of medical practice. Burl's Bristow Fires Second No-Hit Win Boyd Bristow, Burt's hard- hurling pitcher, fired his second no-hitter of the week as the Bears downed Titonka Friday night, 10-0, at Burt. The game ended after the Bears amassed a ten-run lead in the fifth inning of the contest. A big second inning proved to be the stinger. Burt' got seven big runs on three hits off Titonka's Ludwig. The Bears had ten runs, five hits and two errors. Titonka's hitless, rimless Indians pulled six boners in the fray. Bristow, who no-hitted Ringsted Tuesday, came off the mound with six strikeouts and two walks. Tyke's Ludwig managed two strikeouts and gave up six walks. Dale Teeter Wins Numerals, Drake U.

Mullers Usher Bears To 5-4 Victory Here Garrigan's Golden Bears scored a single run in the second and four in the third on the way to a 5-4 victory over LuVerne here Wednesday evening. John Winkel went all the way on the hill for the Bears, who upped their season mark to 4-3 (with their fourth win in the last five outings) and gave up seven hits. Doug Nelson hurled for Lu Verne, allowing just five hits. The winners committed three errors and the losers two. The Muller brothers, Jack, who hit a run-scoring double, and Dick, who smashed a 2- run home run in the third inning, were the most important blows for the winners. Denny Hanselman went3-for-3 and Nelson 2-for-3 at the plate for LuVerne. The two-hit pitching of Jerry Spittal and errors in the field by the Garrigan club allowed Ft. Dodge High to post an 8-0 victory over the Bears here Friday night. The loss evened Garrigan's mark at 4-4 for the season. Joe Becker of the Bears also hurled a good game, allowing only four hits while whiffing nine and walking three - and for three innings found himself tied up in a 0-0 fray with Spittal. The Dodgers then counted a pair of runs in the top of the fourth, five in the fifth and a single counter in the sixth to take the win. Becker and Jack Muller accounted for Garrigan's two blows during the fray, while Gordon got a pair and Edmundson and Spittal one each for the winners. Spittal struck out 11 and walked two during the night. The win gave Ft. Dodge a 5-6 record. RESULTS PEE WEE - Colts 42, Astros 14; Cubs 32, Saints 24.
