PAGE FOUR I ALL-KOSSUTH SCHOOL BALL TEAMPICKE The All - Kossuth" high scho baseball team has been picke, and play in a sectional tourna ment at Bancroft beginning to day and will last through Frida and Saturday. A district tournament will be held later, place not yet decided, and a state tournament will bill held later at Manson. As is his custom, Edw. Thaves formerly of Burt, now Bankeri Life Representative at Algonal picked the team. Mr. Thaves who has for many years been ar ardent baseball fan, made his al county selections mostly frorr play personally seen during the county tournament last week a' Fenton, Burt, and Titonka. His team follows: All-County Team. Darrell Bait, Titonka, secont base. Carter, Burt, shortstop. Hof, Lu Verne, center field. Korie, Tilonka, third base. P. Merriam, Lu Verne, firs base. Schmidt, Fenton, left field. Eimers, Burt, right field. Dick Bait, Titonka, catcher. Krause, Fenion, pilcher. Long, Burl, pitcher. Bruns, Tilonka, pitcher. Reasons for Selections. In comment, Mr. Thaves gave! the following reasons for his se- 1 lections: "Darrell Batt for second base ! because he is the surest fielder, heady in play, and a troublesome boy at the plate. "Carter because he is one of the best shortstops in county high school circles and has few equals in covering ground. "The outfield was a weak sister this year and hard to determine, but Hof seemed, on the whole, best choice. "Korte is the best high school third baseman I have seen work in the county, and he is also a dangerous hitter. "Schmidt was placed in right field because he is valuable as a relief pitcher. "Eimers is also a hustler in the field, and at times he also hits well. "Dick Batt, in my estimation, did the best job of catching in the tournament. However, there were a few other boys worthy of recognition. Three Pilchers. "Three pitchers were chosen for tournament play. Krause, Long, and Bruns are perhaps the best corps of pitchers the county tournaments have seen in some time, considering all - around play. They are not only dangerous hitters, but can all handle the out and in fields in excellent style. "Other boys who look good and would not impair this team are Hardcopf and Meyer, Lu Verne Hammerstrom and Weiske, Burt Kollasch, Swea City (a comer) Hoover, Titonka; Thilges, Fenton Berg, Swea City, showed hit'ing power in a game with Lu Verne. When the foregoing mention was written Mr. Thaves was not yet informed on the counties to be represented in the sectional tournament. College Youth Gets Call to Washington John C. Phillips, freshman at the I. S. T. C., Cedar Falls, received a wire from Washington, D! C., yesterday morning asking him to report Monday morning for work in the Federal Service.
