The Bulldogs went ahead in the top of the fifth as Cook, Meyer and Loren Nelson stroked singles good for two runs. Rodman cut the margin to 2-1 in the last of the fifth as Erickson scored following a walk, fielders' choice and an error. Nothing happened in the sixth, but in the Algona half 'of the seventh Cook and Meyer hit back- to-back singles and Bill Fain slammed a triple for the final two Algona tallies. Fain was out at the plate as he attempted to make his hit into a home run. Rodman's final two hits and a fielders' choice sent home the final run of the game in the last of the seventh. „ Christensen racked up his second win of-the year in his second start. He allowed only five hits as he upset Rodman's attempt to make it two straight over the Bulldogs. Cook and Meyer each ,got two hits, while Fain, Nelson, Bob Slobe and JSuian Schuiier each got one. Fain was the hitting star of the sectional as he drove home seven runs of the 14 scored by Algona during its two wins'. Kossuth Ball Loop Season Opens Sunday Kossuth County League baseball action begins at four sites this Sunday, but one manager, Zeke Winkel of the Algona KC team, has a very serious problem with which to contend before his team takes the field at Livermore—there aren't enough men on the squad at present for the outfit to make un official appearance. The next practice session for the local entry, set for this evening (Thursday) at the KC Park east of town, may produce more candidates for the team, but at last count, Winkel was at least two men short of the necessary Opening games Sunday include Ringsled at Lone Rock;' Gilmore City at Rodman; Bancroft KC at Whiilemore; and Algona KC at Livermore. Game time is 2:30 p.m. every Sunday from May 15 through August 21, with the exception of July 3. Each team will play a 14-game loop schedule, meeting every other league team twice during the season on a home-and-home basis. Seven men have tried out so far for the local team, including Merv Hentges, Bob und John Diekman, Bob and Dick Kain, Charley Elbert and Winkel. Invitations have been extended to Don Cook, Bill Fain ad Loren Nelson of Algona High's team. Cook will be unable to play due to his summer job hours, and final decisions have not been reached by the other pair. This lack of men is somewhat of a new problem for the locals who normally have many candidates before the season and a large squad throughout the summer. Of the present seven men, only Winkel, Bob Diekman and Hentges have seen previous action on KC teams. According to Winkel, anyone wishing to earn a position on the team will be welcomed at practice sessions. Ledyard Fire Call Ledyard—The fire alarm sounded at noon on Saturday calling the fire truck to the dump where someone had started some rubbish afire and then left it and the strong wind soon spread the fire tp nearby fields.

Edge LuVerne Tuseday; Meet Corwith, Today By Don Smith Jr. Algona, Corwith, St. John's of Bancroft and Woden advanced to- final round berths in the district baseball tournaments at Algona and Bancroft with wins Tuesdr.y.

Final round action 'is slated for both sites today (Thursday), with Algona and Corwith set to tangle at the fairgrounds at 3;30 p.m., and St. John's and Woden will meet in a night contest at Bancroft. Win The Hard Way Algona's Bulldogs got their win the hard way, coming up with four BIG runs in the home half of the sev.euth to snatch the verdict from a LuVerne team that held the lead throughout the game. A pair of walks off starting pitcher Bill Fain of the Bulldogs, followed by a home run clout over the right field fence by Baker, gave LuVerne a three-run first inning spurt that held up until the final half inning. Coach Bob King's crew, anxibus to take win number six against two losses, countered with a pair of tallies on a walk, three errors and a fielders' choice ,to make it 3-2 in the bottom of the .first. LuVerne Takes Lead A walk and a home run over the deep left field fence by Stripling j*ave LuVerne a 5-2 lead in the top of the second, but Algona got one run back in the home half of the second as Bob Slobe, Larry Christensen and Don Cook singled to make it 5-3. Coach flryce Wickett's nine apparently wrapped up the contest with two more in the fifth as Schneider and Henderson singled aim Baker uuuWeil to IUH tin; count to 7-3. Doug Meyer, Eulan Schuller and Slobe made it 7-4 'with singles in the last 'of the fifth, and that was it until the fatal seventh. Walks to Fain and Schuller, Sldbe's third single, a walk to Harvey Peglow, who stole second, an error, and a slashing liner to right-center by Cook thut dropped off centerfielder Schneider's glove for a double, chased home the runs that salvaged the game. Chrislensen Comes In Christensen replaced Fain on the hill for Algona early in the fray, and he got the win, his third against no losses. Henderson and Stripling hurled for the losers, with Henderson getting tagged with the loss. Slobe of Algona, and Baker of LuVerne led their I'L'spectiye teams at the plate with three hits each.
