The Brownies first drubbed the Kahouns 7 to 0 in the first round o: the state semi-pro tournament a Storm Lake and then put on another of their ninth inning rallies to whip the same club 8 to 7 under the lights at the local park. Under the lights at Algona the Brownies to win had to stage one of their ninth inning rallies which he fans are beginning to expect as a usual feature. The Kahouns went out ahead in the third and fourth nnings. getting a pair of runs" in each frame. The Brownies duplicated this performance in the sixth and seventh stanzas to tie up the score but the invaders came right back to score 3 more runs In the eighth to assume a comfortable lead. A light rain came up which threatened to terminate the game with Kahoun in the lead but died down again, and Algona's ninth inning rally won the game. The Brownies were originally scheduled to play a strong colored team, the Oklahoma Cubs, which was forced out of the evening's bill when the bus in which the team was travelling broke down. The Kahoun team, smarting for revenge after the afternoon's beating at Storm Lake, was substituted. This week after the state senii- !>ro tournament the Brownies will )lay the Kingsbury Beer team of Des Moines, Thursday, and Sunday night battle the Mexican Revolutionists. This is the same team which defeated the Brownies 4 to 3 in 11 inning last year in the Watermelon Day game.

A Sunday ago the Algona Juniors went two extra innings to beat the same club, 1 to 0. Thilges pitching for Algona gave up only five well scattered hits.

During these vacation days every driver of an automobile has an added responsibility—to watch out for those youngsters on the streets. Children listen to our warnings and instructions to be careful when crossing streets, but, as we all know, they forget very readily, and when they are engaged In a spirited game of tag our words of caution are completely erased from their minds. That is why we motorists must Icam to anticipate seeing a boy or girl dash suddenly across the street without a sideward glance. We often become impatient anj nngry with youngsters for these thoughtless acts, but remember, their's is a carefree life. We cannot expect them to keep serious thoughts In mind constantly. Let's give the kids a break iind be a little more alert when we sit behind the wheel of our automobile. That is one way we can make life fater for our children.
