TWO SCHOOLS BASEBALL Hi School Will Face 9 Game Spring Slate The weather is goinj* to have to rooperalc before Conch Bob King knows too much about his 20-man Algona high baseball squad. Part of the squAd has been working 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," staten King Monday, "right during the Easter vacation break, so it didn't help tiie team at all." There is a definite lack of pitching experience. Doug Meyer, Harvey Peglow, Lorer. Nelson and .Dave-Kohl have b(*en •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 the mound staff needs. Three youngsters have impressed King so far in practice. All are untried, but show plenty of natural ability. They are Tom Zittritsch, freshman, and Jim Cowan and Jerry Rupp, sophomores. It is probable Nelson will go back to third from shortstop making room for the lanky Rupp. who moves and throws well Cowan and Zittritsch are infielders by trade, but will probably play in the outfield at times this season. The outfield is wide open, with one exception. 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 thg 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.

LOCALLY OWNED NATIONALLY ORGANIZED 17 On SCA Squad With Good Pitchers Chances for a winning baseball season at St. Cecelia's Academy this spring apparently hinge on a strong pitching staff, according to Coach Jim Geclan. Seventeen squad members, including Al Grill, one of the top hurlers in the area, are working out daily in preparatio'n for the coming season. Grill, a hard-working right- hander, has been a mainstay with thf 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-lpst mark with the local Junicu 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, crafty 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 put 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. Bcbo, at first, Hood second, Kinsey short, and Fandel, third, could be the starling 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 out the fly-shagging corps.

ADDRESS- TITV MILLIONS THAT REDUCE Y01 E VERY Iowa taxpayer receives the benefit of the substantial taxes being paid by the brewing industry. C For example, .the annual taxes on beer sold in Iowa now amount to $25,453,545.48, including: $11,495,912.04 Federal tax on beer sold in Iowa; $3,167,762.44 Iowa tax paid by wholesalers; $2,000,000.00 in sales taxes; $1,289,871.00 license fees of Iowa wholesalers and tavern operators; $7,500,000.00 other State and Federal taxes paid by Iowa wholesalers and retailers. All this helps by that much to reduce lowans' tax bills. Millions More For Iowa's Prosperity A LL Iowa benefits, too, from the contribution the brewing industry makes to our state's prosperity. Tens of thousands of lowans are employed in this great industry. Millions of dollars are invested in Iowa property. And Iowa \ «- * farmers profit directly from the huge volume of agricultural products used in brewing.
