April 11, 1950 THIRD SECTION Eight Teams Join Kossuth Baseball League For 1950 "Play Balll" That good, old American battle cry isn't going to be heard around here for a few weeks, yet, so far as league competition is cpncern- fu ,« Pre'iminary p i ays f or the 1950 organization of the Kossuth Baseball League were completed, last week, and the opening games were set for May 14. . The Kossuth League will be an eight team loop, this season. In the league will be the Algona K. C.'s, Bancroft VFW, Burt Lotts Creek, LuVerne,-St. Joe, St. Benedict and Whittemore. Burt Strong Entry The entry of Burt into the-fold will make a stronger league. Burt is also entered in the North Central league, a circuit that is going to play all of its games at night, and which includes teams from four counties. The old reliables — the K. C.'s, Lotts Creek, St. Benedict and St. Joe— are also expected to have strong entries, while just what /Bancroft, LuVerne and Whittemore will come up with this year will be the darkhorse question. Stewart McFadden of Algona was named president, and Pat Cullen of Algona, secretary, at the annual organization meeting. How They Will Open In the opening games, May 14, the league schedule will call for the following contests: Bancroft at Whittemore St. Joe at Algona Lotts Creek at LuVerne Burt at St. Benedict Two official umpires from the North Iowa Umpires Ass'n will officiate at each game in the league. Rosters of players have yet to be submitted, and actual practice has scarcely begun, due to the late spring weather,—BUT, it won't be long now! DIED Recently Mrs. Theodore Haughland of Crystal Lake received a letter from her mother in Norway, written three days before her mother's death. The communication predicted that the writer had not long to live.

Only two days of outside practice have been held so far, and indoor work-outs have been extremely limited. However, the teams Algona will be meeting are probably having the same difficulties. Coach Leon Martin noted. Eagle Grove is the first foe at a dual meet slated here Friday. All 18 track events will be covered, including the low and high hurdles, which have not been a part of Algona's track program in recent years. Five of last year's 10 lettermen are back this year, but two lettermen who are still in school have not turned out for practices yet. This year's team totals 29, 15 of which have had some experience. Coach Martin is having trouble filling the relays and field events, since few of his men have had any experience in those areas. Dick Downs Is Candidate For I.S.T.C.

TAYLOR, ADC Nefwoit. ever/ Monjjy Look how you save vnthPtm F IRST thing you notice, of course, is the bother and effort Dyna- flow Drive* saves. Next, that Dynaflow saves you physically—after long trips you're less tense and tired, more relaxed. But then, as the mites pile up—and this comes from cold, recorded fact after Dynaflow's two years of pub* lie operation—you spot savings you hadn't expected . . . You save on tires—because power application is steady, even. On clutch expense—the usual friction' clutch is gone. You save on transmission maintenance, and the rear-axle expenses likely to go with it. And the way your engine is oil-cushioned against normal shocks and strains shows up in less engine upkeep. * Standard on ROADMASTER, optional at extra oat on SUPER and SPECIAL model*.

You may well discover another pleasant surprise, too. We are getting a steadily mounting number of well-satisfied letters about gasoline mileage with Dyna- flow cars. The SPECIAL has shown some records little short of phenomenal. The SUPER is delivering mileage that compares most favorably with gearshift cars. And the ItOADMASTEIt more than holds its own with cars of its size and bulk. In short, there's a lot more to please your budget in the 1950 Dynaflow than its new lower price. Refinements over the past two years result in savings that are sizable over the life of the car. Knowing that, don't you want us to demonstrate the big side of Dynu- flow—the utter smoothness of America's first oil-does-it-all drive? Only Buiek has and with it yoess HIGHIR.
