Marion Battani felt the Bears' point total and number of state qualifiers would have been greater if Bestenlehner was able to run and if the 440- yard relay team had not run into difficulty. "The last man had the baton bumped out of his hand after the exchange, or we could have won," Battani said.

' Gary Agard Pit Mechanic At "Indy 500' Mrs. Frances Agard received a call on Thursday evening, May 6, from the pits of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indiana, which wa s placed by her son Gary, who is employed as a pit mechanic by J. C. Agajanian. Mr. Agajanian is well known in racing circles as the greatest single promoter in auto racing today, outside of AndyGranatelli. They will be preparing and entering at least two cars in the "Indy 500" and the numbers on each of these cars will be 98. Soon, Gary will attend a special mechanics' school for a week to enable him to become a licensed USAC mechanic. On the day of the "Indy 500", Gary's job will be to refuel the Agajanian cars as they come into the pits. To date Gary has worked the "Phoenix 150" on March 27 in Phoenix, Ariz.; the "Trenton 200" on April 25 in Trenton, N. J. and a race in Terre Haute, Ind. on May 1. He will be traveling the rest of the summer with his employers as a pit mechanic at a number of large races throughout the United States.

Ends Wednesday SHOWS 7:00 & 9:00 th quarter WITH TOM WALLER Dr. Borlaug Was Cresco Wrestler IOWA'S wrestling newspaper, "The Predicament," hadtwoar- ticles of special interest to Kossuth County residents and a third article on Nobel Prize winner Dr. Norman Borlaug of Cresco, la., which should interest all Iowa sports fans. , THE SHORTEST of the three stories tells of a $300 grant for wrestlers established at New Hampton by Larry Severson and two brothers. Larry wrestled for Iowa State before working at the Federal Land Bank office in Algona. He officiated a number of meets in Algona. Larry's attending law school in St. Paul now. A FEATURE story entitled, "Master Coach Chris Flanagan," occupies one page. Flanagan began his coaching career at Grant Consolidated School at Ledyard in the 1934-35 season and then went on to Burt for the 1935-36 season before going to Cresco, where he remained for 33 years. He's never had a losing season at 309-81-5 total at Cresco and has won four state championships. RECALLING the early days, Mrs. Flanagan said, "There were no school buses then, so Chris and I both drove cars to take the boys to meets . . . We've fed a good many boys, especially those who lived in the country ... I'll bet I've poached a million eggs." - o - BORLAUG, as explained in the paper's cover story, wrestled at Cresco and at the University of Minnesota. Ironically, he was kept from championships twice because he lost to two other former Cresco wrestlers - Big 10 Conference champion Harold Nichols, now ISU coach, and Midwest AAU champ Flanagan! BORLAUG won the 1970 Nobel Peace Prize for developing a strain of dwarf wheat which has a high yield and has eased the hun- ger problem in nations such as India and Pakistan. Since then he has had the courage to let his philosophy and beliefs be known. He recently told the Minnesota Legislature, for example, that agriculture and forestry will suffer if the U. S. Agriculture Department is divided into four new departments. Jr. Hi Girls Top Ledyard In Track BURT (Special)-The Burt Junior High girls' track team defeated Ledyard 63-33 in a dual meet here Wednesday. Winning individual firsts for Burt were: Chris Keith 4'3" high jump and :18.6 low hurdles; Dawn Stenzel 13' 6" long jump; Karen Elmers :08.4 60-yard dash; and Keith and Stenzel tied for first in the 100-yard dash with :13.1.

Keith). The team will compete in a large meet at Titonka next Thursday. The beach scene; bared or bashful.
