WATERMELONDAY ASTHEBROWN1ES TRIM LIONS 7-2 Donnabelle Merron Ahead in Algona Queen Balloting It was a watermelon which was ffered as a prize for victory thi.i Sunday so the Algona Brownies got iack a one run handicap right away ml proceeded to down Charles City to 2. Charles City scored an unearned un in the first frame on a single, n wo base error and a sacrifice fly nit then the same cafe which put up he chicken dinner for Algona's vinning battery last week, announced that this time they would give hat famous de'.'cacy, a cold watermelon to the wi'ming Algonn pitcher or to the Brownie who made n lome run. That checked Charles lity then and there, for the inspired Brownies got the run back in tha second, another in the fourth and n cluster of runs in the seventh and eighth innings. Pequefl Holds Lions Peewee Peques allowed the Lions only one more tally which came n the eighth and there was no serious trouble. The Brownies were in a tight fielding mood after the wild first Inning and played errorless ball for eight innings. Rogers^ new centerfielder. made some particularly nice catches of long high flies which were all but lost in the dark, and tog that rolled in on the field n the seventh inning. Algona hitters were trying for that watermelon all evening and Danny White finally got it when he teed off on one of Lefty Reed's southpaw slants and parked It against the center field fence. White also collected a half a buck for the blow. In addition to the homer he had a triple to show for the evening's work and those two long drives and a walk made up quite a night. White intended to split the melon with Pequea and have their own watermelon day without waiting for Algona's in August. Reed, Charles City's hurler, had ns much stuff on the ball as any pitcher to invade the local diamond this year, but his team mates couldn't field behind him, nor could they solve Peques' flinging. The little boy with the nice curve ball corn- baffled the Lions.

In n fitting climax to the fir.U half schedule of the North Kossuth baseball league Bancroft, getting brilliant pitching from Lefty Hatten, defeated Whittemore 4 to 3, in n 17-inning buttle that gave Bancroft the first half championship. The schedule originally called lor he play of the first half to be over i week ago and this was erron- iously reprinted in the Upper Des Moines last week. It made r.'i lifference. however, as Bancroft, >y virtue of its extra inning triumph did clinch the championship. Hattcn Fans 29 Lefty Hatten pitched the entire 7 innings for Bancroft and Kcnne vent all the way for Whittemoro, -.efty allowing but five hits over he distance while Kennc gave up but one more.

This Sunday will be an open date for North Kossuth loop teams but A fairly good crowd attended do< pile the weather which was wet then foggy and then so cold tha snow was feared. Two of the best games of the year are scheduled for Sunday and the Fourth of July. On the Sabbath Fort Dodge's tough niije threatens to break the Brownies' winning streak nnd in the feature game on the Independence Day program, Fairmont is the opposition. Both art- expected to be tough oppjisiton unless the cnfc does not run out of watermelon, chicken, et cetera. Friday was Hottest Day of Summer The mercury in the recorder's thermometer looped the loop over the week end while Algoninns alternately perspired and shivered. 62 inch precipitation finally leavened off the hot spell after the highest temperature of the year hart been recorded. 9R degrees on Friday, June 22. The extreme amount of humidity on the warmest days added to the effect of the heat for people in the Algona area. However, on Sunday and Monday evenings the temperature dropped down below 60 the low est temperature recorded being 50 degress on Monday morning. "Spectators at the Sunday night ball game found blankets welcome and for some sheepskins to be desired. Pre dictions were for warmer weather today.

Begun April 1, the hunt carried out successfully its intended purpose to decrease the number of predatory birds and animals in the county. The totals for the county-wid,; hunt are not yet known. Awards will be made at the picnic to the winners in the contest, immediately after the barbecue dinner. First prize is a silver loving cup. Archery Scheduled Following the presentation of awards a special exhibition of arch- i ery wilf be given by Dr. R. M. Wallace and Carl Van Hoven. After the archery exhibition the use of more modern implements of the hunt will be demonstrated when crack teams representing the different conservation units will compete for the 5-man team championship of Kossuth county. The gunners will fire at twenty-five birds each which will be colored white so they can be easily seen under the lights of the ball park. Teams Entered Teams from the following town* are expected to compete: Swea City, Lakota. Wesley. Bancroft. Fenton, LuVerne, Whittemore, Tilon- ka, Burt, Lone Rock, Ledyard and Algona. The Algona unit's chances of winning the county trophy in the predator hunt have been brightened by the showing made by the junior;;. Eugene Colwell won the first prize, a .22 calibre repeating rifle, with a total of 4220 points. Bob Deal took second, on a score of 2495, which won for him a .22 calibre single shot rifle. Third prize, a Boy Scout hatchet, went to Leo Dunlap who scored 730 points and Walter Pfeffer received a Boy Scout knife as fourth prize for earning 400 points Eugene Colwell scored almost as many points in the hunt as did the entire senior division of the Algona unit. The boys gained points for bringing in the different predatory ani- j mala as follows: fox, 25 points; fo<| pup, 15 points; crow. 10 points; crow j egg, 5 points; starling, 10 points; pocket 10 points. Total scores piled up by some of ' more impressive when the number of animals which the boys shot or trapped is figured. The juniors caught more than 700 gophers and more than, 600 starlings. Eugene Colwell, first prize winner, captured five fox pups which helped boost hN total, but more interesting to the farmers is the number of gophers especially pocket gophers, which w l ere killed. The pocket gopher problem WHS the subject of considerable discussion at the meeting. Trouble, whic!i the mounds caused road maintenance men was pointed out as well as the rodents' damage to farms The men interested in the : ituation recommend raisins; the bounty from live to ten cents. In considering the matter the youngsters who killed so many of the animals in the predator hunt were asked what they considered to be a reasonable bounty. The hoys agreed that ten cents would be much better. Gopher Control Action of the state legislature is necessary to change the bounty and Representative Kohlhaas. who wis present, assured the unit that he would be glad to present the recommendations of the league to the legislature. As a result a motion was approved that the Algona unit urge the Kossuth county league to work for a change in the amount of the bounty. Other business considered at the meeting was a report by E. V. Pierce, state conservation officer, on the growth of the seedling trees planted by the Algona unit. Mr. Pierce reported that conditions had been ideal for the growth of young trees aiid that a fine showing can be expected as a result. The evergreens planted have not done as w>'!l as the other kinds, but this is to be expected. A 40 per cent survival is considered good with evergreens. After the regular business ha.l been conluded at the meeting. \VTli- iam Dau and J I"). Lowe showed motion pictures which were taken on fishing trips to northern Minnesota and Canada. The Alvjona men wfio were on the trips were Dau. Lowe and John Frank), Dolph Raney, and E V. Pierce. June 22 June 23 ... June 24 June 25 ....
