JOHN BRENNAN WINS DEMO DERBY Dei — ^^ ^^ • **^r ^^m^ ^g^ ^^«H| At Kossnth Speedway Arme Braland of Boone held his lead in the super stock standings, buj there was a new leader m the Sportsmen point standings after Friday night's racing at the Kossuth Speedway. Two cars were demolished in separate crashes in super stock competition. Jim Korte of Duncan rolled his car on the No. 3 corner in the consolation. Speedway manager, Dwightcook, said it appeared to be "smashed beyond repair." Bob Le'werke of Clear Lake hit a retaining wall in front of the grandstand in the feature. "He hit at about the same, place as Darrel Bunkofske did last week," cook said. "Lewerke's car was demolished. He'll have to start over from scratch." Gene Schattschneider of Algona gained 50 points on the No. 2 driver in the point standings, Dennis Hovinga of Laurens. But Schattschneider remained in third place and now trails Bra- land by 10 more points than the previous week. Len Pesicka of Algona moved from second, past Bob Crail of Algona, into first place in the Sportsmen standings. He placed fourth in the feature and picked up heat points. John Brennan of Algona won first place and $50 in a special demolition derby. "We only had five cars," Cook said, "but they put on a good show. They were mangled beyond recognition." Kossuth Speedway was to host sprint cars for the first time this year Saturday night. -SUPER STOCK RESULTS- 1st Heat (10 laps): 1. Gene Schattschneider, Algona; 2.

The Bulldogs lost three games by a total of five runs: Clarion 6-5; Emmetsburg 9-7; and Humboldt 3-1. "The games were fun and interesting for the fans -- lots of hitting and scoring and unusual base running—but it wasn't what you'd call good baseball . . We're doing things wrong, and we'll have to get straightened out right away," Algona hosts a strong Iowa Falls team in a North Central Conference game here tonight at 6:30 (Monday). Eagle Grove will play here Friday in another conference game at 6:30. Algona's season record is now 1-3, with a conference record of 0-2. Emmetsburg got a fast start here Thursday, leading 9-3 after 3 1/2 innings before Algona came back with four runs. TheE-Hawks scored three runs on three hits in the first inning, and Algona came back in the bottom half of the Inning to tie it 3-3. The Bulldogs had men on base in the seventh but couldn't change the 9-7 score. "Gene Hunt made some nice plays at shortstop," Christie said. "He can handle shortstop with no problems at all." Hunt also pitches. He gave up just four hits in the loss at Humboldt Friday, but three of them came in the first inning, enough to give the winners a 2-0 lead. "We only made one error," Christie explained, "but it came in the first with men on second and third when both runners were moving with the pitch." Marty Moore pitched a no- hitter for Humboldt, striking out 13. "I don't know what was wrong," Christie said. "He's not that fast, and he doesn't have much of a curve. We just couldn't touch him ... We hit in the hole at shortstop three times. Even when the shortstop hobbled the ball he picked it up and threw us out by five feet. We're too slow to first base and definitely lack speed. We can't scratch anything out ..." Algona loaded the bases on walks and a fielder's choice, ' but a squeeze play failed to produce a run. The Bulldog run came immediately after when Moore forced in the run. • t • i • t • i • f • ( • c • ( • c f • c •it • t HAGG-TURNER POST 90 OF THE AMERICAN LEGION DANNY MENKE - COMMANDER COMING EVENTS: CHICKEN FRY SATURDAY, JUNE 12TH SERVING FROM 5:00 P.M.
