(UDM Newsfoto) Bulldogs, Johnnies Win Way Into District Meet Algona's Bulldogs and Bancroft St. John's Johnnies moved into the first round of summer District Baseball Tournament action with wins here and at Bancroft Wednesday night — and were slated to run headlong into each other at Garrigan Field here last night (Monday), That meeting was tabbed as a real dandy. The Johnnies, who scored 54 runs in three Sectional victories, carried an 18-1 season mark into the fray, while the Bulldogs were 18-2-1. St. John's only loss of the campaign came at the hands of Twin Rivers, 2-0, earlier, while Aglona fell to Hampton and Lu- Verne on the way to an easy crown in the North Central Conference race. Coach V. J. Meyer's club dumped Thompson, 8-3, and Algona got past Twin Rivers, 8-1, in Sectional finales Wednesday. St. John's rapped nine hits and committed three errors, while Thompson managed four hits from the offerings of Dick Diers, starting Johnnie hurler, and Steve Vaske, who finished up, and committed two errors. Diers and Vaske combined to whiff 13, while giving up seven walks. McGrath was the losing hurler, striking out four and issuing eight passes. A three-run third inning and four-run fifth inning, plus a single tally in the fourth, gave the charges of Coach Keith Christie their victory over Twin Rivers, which carried a 12-8 record into the game. Craig Espe, Algona's ace lefty, went all the way on the .hill and picked up his 13th win; of the year without a loss. It was also his 29th straight victory over a three-year period, including the final game of his sophomore season and 15 straight last summer. Doug Logue, who started his fourth game in eight days for the losers, took the loss and was relieved by Steve Bergum during the fifth inning uprising by the Bulldogs. A majority of Algona's runs were unearned. Espe cracked a double in the fifth which chased two runners home and Rog Meyer stroked an important single during the third inning rally. Bob Farnham garnered a pair of Algona's seven blows in the fray. A single by Dale Fredrick plated the Twin Rivers run in the top of the fourth.

Total attendance was estimated at 2,500 and a portion of a guaranteed purse of $1,000 went to many of the 40 drivers present. Another weekly race program is slated tills Friday, with time trials to begin at 8:30 p. m. Butch Householder, who went to the sidelines with a smashed- in front end along with Gene Schattschneider and Leo Christiansen during the running of the trophy dash, nabbed victory in the A-feature after a frantic repair job by his pit crew. He stayed in front of Jim Edgington, who pressed him all the way. While there were many minor (and major) mishaps during the evening, the most exciting single action came near the end of the feature when -Les Frieden, West Bend pilot who has done well here recently, took a sudden crack-the-whip spin In the front stretch, escaped a roll or flip and managed to finish the race. The spin was the result of a hang- up of his auto and another and the Frieden car was dragged, then whipped viciously down the track. Four cars richocheted into a pile-up early in the trophy dash and Householder and Christiansen went out. Schattschneider managed to remain in the running, but moments later, after a restart, was the victim of a chain- reaction mishap that smashed in the front of his car and sent him to the pits for good. Householder had the best time trial at :19.32, with Schattschneider second, :19.62; while Loren Pruvis took the trophy dash; Carl VanderWaal, Del Stokey and Edgington copped heat races, and George Barton captured the B-feature. Hamilton Is Junior Golf Winner Here John Hamilton, winner of the JayCee Junior Golf Tournament here last year, captured the Junior Golf crown at Algona Country Club last week. Hamilton, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hamilton, fired a 79 over the 18- hole trial, winning the crown by two strokes. In second place in the championship flight were Kim Sloniker and Don Hagen, 81, while Bruce Olson had an 83. Olson was winner of the 1967 JayCee meet. All four qualified for participation in the Men's Championship Tournament at the club. Top four in the first flight were Ryan Lunch, 99, John Pittman and Jim Cubit, 102, and Tim Will, 104, while Walt Bradley, 112, Jim Harris, 114, Mickey Anderson, 116, and Mark Montag, 120, topped the second flight.
