The pair will tangle in a scheduled 3G-hple match that will serve as a fitting climax to a good golf season at the loca* club. Both golfers have, battled past three opp ments on their way to the big rmtch, and on the basis of comparative shots, must be considered equal to each other so the finale should be a dandy. They will play the first 18 holes in the morning, the final 18, if necessary, Sunday afternoon. Langmack's advance into the finals from the semi-finals was the most sensational effort of the tourney. He edged Dr. Harold Brickson, 1-up, last Sunday by winning the last three holes of the match. Smith advanced to the finals a week before with'a 5-4 win over Jack Canning. Erickson was two-up with three holes to play. His game suddenly went to pieces, while Langmack gritted his teeth and coolly made clean shots one after the other to win. He took the seventh, eighth and ninth holes, the final three of the match, by shooting par golf, and saw Erickson's hope go down the drain when the young doctor pulled his second shot on the final hole under a small fir tree to the left of the green where recovery was impossible. Smith will be making his third attempt at the club championship, while Pete, a 1955 Algona High graduate, is shooting fdr his first big title. A high school student, Nidas Dermand, took the title a year ago. The Win gave the Post Office team , undisputed possession, of second place-as they chalked up their fourth straight win. The Bulldozers had things all their way until the bottom of the third frame, counting four runs in the first and five in the second to take a 9-4 lead. The Post Office outfit came to life in the third, counted ten runs to make it 14-9, and Jed the rest of the way. By the time winning pitcher Hank Geilenfeld left the mound, the winners had a 17-9 lead, and although the losers knocked the tar out of Don Smith's offerings, they fell one run short with a four-run rally in the top of the seventh -as Eldia Winkel got an unassisted double play to end the game. <: Merle Thompson got four hits for the losers, including a pair oi home runs. Tom Buscher ana Jim Schultz also got four-baggers for the Bulldozers, who outhit the Post Office team, 19-13. Julie Baas was three-for-three and Bill Allen three-for-four at the plate for the winners. . Jim Schultz was the losing pitcher.
