Hi School Will FacelGame Spring Slate The weather is going to have to cooperate before Coach Bob King knows too much about his 20-man Algona high baseball 'Squad. Part of the squad has_been wdrkifig out for three weeks, the rest of two'weeks; and only one session has been held outside. it Is possible for pitchers, catchers, infielders and outfielders to throw and loosen ,up .in the •gym, but without outside work, including batting, it is impossible to know how the season'might shape up. "we got our first real baseball weather last weekend," statea King Monday, "right during the Easter vacation break, so it didn't help the team at all." • There is a definite lack of pitching experience. D o U'g Meyer, Harvey , Peglow,. Loren Nelson and Dave Kohl have been throwing hard in practice, and, according to King, Peglow and Kohl have shown lots of improvement since last spring. Ted- Finley has moved in as the number one 'catcher, and will probably take the job if Meyer developes as a pitcher. Meyer has spent most of his baseball time as a receiver, but is big and strong^ and might be the king-pin DIAMOND'S PAINT SALE WHITE OUTSIDE i or RED BARN PAINT i Gallon 5-GALS. 10.88 Ask Your Neighbor — This Is The Painl That Made Us Famous IDIAMONDS SURPLUS the mound' staff needs. , Three" youngsters have . i.nv prepsed King so far in practice. All are untried, but show plenty of natural ability. They are Tom Zittritsch, freshman, and Jim; Cowart and Jerry Rupp, sophomores. It is probable Nelson will go back . to third from shortstop making room for the lanky Riipp, who moves and throws well Cowan and Zittritsch are infielders by, trade, b'tit will probably play in the outfield at times this season. The outfield is wide open, with 6ne ekception. Larry Kueck will be a fixture in center, For the other two spots, King has Zittritsch, Cowan, Duane Kueck and Vernon Christoffers. . Three-fourths of the infield is experienced, as Bob Slobe at first, Bob" Harms, second, and Nelson at third, are all veterans. If Rupp works out as expected, the pitching staff should be able to depend on plenty of support on ground balls. The team'will play nine games, five at home and four away, before the sectional "tournament gets underway April 30, starting with a game next Monday, April 9, at Titonka. The first home contest is April 13 with Corwith at the fairgrounds. Four Keglers Show The Way At Hawkeye Bowling.honors were shared by two men and two women at Hawkeye Lanes this week.

Grill, a hard-working right- hander, has been a mainstay with the Knights for the past two years, and probably will be again this spring. His last season of baseball was during the summer when he rang up a 7-1 won-lost mark with the local Junior Legion nine. His victories a year ago included a no-hitter, and he has numerous low-hit efforts listed in his career record. When not hurling, he will be found in the outfield. The rest of the pitching staff includes Cecil Schilmoeller, craf« iy little lefthander with a.lot of stuff, Tom Kinsey, who depends on speed, and Warren Bebo, regular firstbaseman who is giving the mound a try. Experience is a little shy here with the exception of Grill and Schilmoeller, but the other two have the urge to win, and if they improve could round out a very fine staff. All four will be in the regular starting .lineup at various positions. Other squad members include Pat Duffy, Dick Ristau, John Hood, Don Froehlich, Joe and Ron Buscher, Dirk Hansen, Ron Briggs, Monte Pearson, Cliff Esser, Tom Fandel, Bob Cink and Bill Robinson., Practically every man on the squad has had some experience, although in- some cases it is very limited. Bebo, at first, Hood second, Kinsey shorthand Fandel, third, could be the starting infield, while Froehlich, Briggs, Cink and Hansen are other infielders. Duffy and Joe Buscher played a lot of outfield last fall, and Ron Buscher, Pearson, Ristau,and Esser, plus Grill and Schilmoeller, will round but,the .fly-shagging ' " ' ' Has 212 Line At Larry's Games of 200 seemed to be In vogue this week, jn the ladies leagues at Larry's.
