ONE OF THE new innovations in the Algona Little League program this summer has been the "T-Ball" in the Pee- Wee League. Instead of a pitcher in this beginning group, grades 2 and 3, youngsters hit the ball off from a rubber stand, shown above. It has made for much more action for fielders and hitters although the scores have risen accordingly. There is a limit of 10 runs per team per inning no matter how many outs the team has at the time. Max Bishop, son of Mr. and Mrs. Loren Bishop, is shown demonstrating the new idea, which is being used in many Little Leagues throughout the country. Oh yes, there is still'a strikeout possible if the batter misses the ball three times and either fans the air or hits the rubber stand.

DeValois says much of corn is 5-feet tall Bumper corn and soy bean crops were predicted this week by Kossuth County Extension Service Director Galen DeValois as plenty of moisture and hot weather mature the two key crops rapidly. DeValois said the majority of corn is now over five feet high and in the tassoling stage. However, contrary to popular belief, the torrid, humid days of recent weeks are not the best for corn growing. Corn does not like the very hot temperatures any batter than most people do; instead, temperatures between 80 and 85 ara the best for growing. DeVa- lois expressed hope that the hot 90 and 100 degree weather would not continue, but said that soil mosture has helped the corn to take 'the hot weather although some sandy areas were hurt by the intense heat. With the exception of some reed, hail and rain damage, the orn is coming along very well. OATS HAVE turned, and they ill probably be harvested next veek, while soy beans are good with most farmers having finished weeding at this time. Farmers report good yields Tom their second cutting of al- 'alfa, and, in general, the agricultural outlook for Kossuth county is definitely above average. Vandalism at library; pool stand theft The Algona police department is investigating vandalism at the Algona public library and a break-in at the concession stand at the municipal swimming pool. Both incidents took place sometime Friday evening. The damage at the library was discovered by Librarian Mrs. R. M. Phillips when she arrived for work at 8:15 Saturday morning. Six upholstered chairs were slashed, both seats and backs, as well as a $50 Webster's Unabridged dictionary. The hands on a large 60 year old grandfather clock — a gift from the Carnation club — were bent and its pendulum removed and. dropped to the bottom of the wooden cabinet. At the main checkout counter, a drawer was removed and a chair cover slashed. In the basement and children's room where an Indian theme had been developed for the summer reading program, a teepee was slashed. Magazines from a storeroom were scattered about the halls, and obscene lettering was carved into the wall of the girl's restroom. Mrs. Phillips estimated the damage at $400 and said that they were fortunate that their books and card catalogues were left intact. A painting by Russell Cowles valued at nearly $1,000 was untouched. Entrance was gained by a window which opened into the basement. At the concession stand, which is operated by Cathy Chrischil- les and Pat Muckey, about $40 in change was taken when someone entered by breaking Unlock on the wooden window cover and cutting the screen on the front of the building.
