One reason for the low attendance at Algona Sunday was that many ball fans, anticipating a hot battle between rivals, chose to attend the game at Lone Rock. Armstrong made a poor showing, 13-3, against Bancroft at Bancroft, and St. Joe upset Titonka at St. Joe in a close 3-2 game. In the Bancroft game the victors opened with four runs when Godfredson, in the first inning, hit a homer with the bases loaded. In the St. Joe game Platt is credited with a sacrifice hit in the third to let Thilges in for the winning run for St. Joe.

Then a gas line on one of the motors sprang a leak. The major got out to tell the fellows to start pumping as the water was getting rougher. It was a half mile to shore either way and the major gave the order to head for shore. As soon as we turned broadside the pontoon tipped over toward us. "I jumped and swam as hard as I could to get out from under :he car. After gaining 15 feet I ;urned and saw the top of the car ust going under. I joined another boy on an eight-foot plank. The lieutenant couldn't swim and cept yelling for some one to save lim. He was the first to go down and the major v was next. The ext 20 minutes was spent kick- ng and paddling toward shore vithout making much headway. The water was 32 degrees. Saved by Trapper. "About this time along came Gustaf Medien, a trapper, row- ng for all he was worth. He eached three boys ahead of us and pulled two into the boat and the third held on to a rope behind. A wave broke over his head 100 feet from shore and he let go. We were about 600 yards from shore when picked up When I tried to climo up the i I ,. kept fallin e down. I crawled between some logs till I got some strength. "We had to walk a mile to the trapper's cabin. I was in my shorts and the wind was cold. The trip was a nightnvire but when ge got there Gus was there with hot tea on the stove. The doctor came and said we should stay all night, and the next day came to the hospital where I am now.
