St. John's Enters District Baseball Final Wednesday Only one Kossuth county team, St. John's of Bancroft, remained in the running for a possible shot at the spring state baseball title following completion of sectional meets last week and the first round of district play Monday. The Johnnies downed Kossuth'j other entrant, 10-0, and Humboldt edged Rodman, 1-0, in the openers at Bancroft Monday. Kanawha knocked out another area team, Corwith, 4-0, in the opener at Kanawha the same day. Through four games in tournament action, the Johnnies have allowed opponents only five runs while racing 51 runners across the plate. Lone Rock accounted for four runs in a 19-4 defeat irf the sectional finale. Humboldt has been getting superb pitching. The Wildcats have taken all three of their tourney games on shut-outs, but have scored only 16 runs 'along the way. Rodman had gunned everything in sight until running into Humboldt Monday, and Ledy^rd had shown great improvement on its way to a sectional title at Thompson last week. Corwith took its sectional with an 11-1 victory over St. Ceceli? of Algona with a flurry of late- inning runs. The Corwith club held the upper hand by only 3-1 through the fourth inning,' but went on to win easily. New Coach At Swea City Hired Swea City — Superintendent Edward Stewart announces that a new coach, Bradley Bauman, has been hired to replace William Lyle who has joined the Sioux City coaching staff. Bauman, wht>se home town is Rock Valley, will be awarded the bachelor of science degree at Iowa State Teachers College at the end of this quarter. At Iowa State TeacHctrs College, he played baseball foxjr years, earning three letters, and was on the basketball squad two years. In addition to coaching football, basketball, and baseball, he will teach social studies. Bauman is married, and he and his wife will come her'e the second week in June, moving into the house to be vacated by the Lyles. He will immediately assume charge of the summer athletic program of baseball, girls' Softball and swimming. It is interesting to note thai there are now three young meii on the Swea City faculty who grew up together in Rock Valley. Robert Jones and Clifford Van- Berkum, as well as Bauman, are from Rock Valley. Walleye Season Opens May 11 Iowa anglers will want to circle May 11 on their fishing calendars as open season on northern pike, walleye and saugei pike gets underway in the state's inland watery on that date. Daily catch limit on northern is 3 with a possession limit of C in Iowa's inland waters and Big Sioux River, except Lee County. Daily catch limit of walleye and sauger pike is 5 with a possessiqn limit of 10, in the same Iowa waters. Commission biologists predict good walleye fishing particularly in the large lakes of the state — Spirit Lake, Clear Lake, West Okoboji, Ingham Lake and Lost Island. A fishing bonanza may be experienced in Lost Island where electric shocking surveys and seining have disclosed a tremendous walleye population, biology section workers report. Another banner year on Spirit Lake may develop, fisheriftl workers say, Lake survey records indicate a high walleye population awaits Iowa fishermen in these waters. This, combined with declining lake levels which have reduced the number of forage fishes, should result in some topnotch walleye fishing.
