Bears Lose Two At Mason City On Saturday Garrigan's Golden Bears out- hit Mason City Newman in both games of a doubleheader there Saturday, but came out on the short end of 2-Oand 7-1 decisions to level their season mark at 2-2. Coach Duane Kramer's club will travel to Bancroft tomorrow (Wednesday) for a meeting with St. John's at 8 p. m.

Newman sandwiched a couple of walks around three Garrigan errors in the home half of the second inning to cop the opener. Potthoff whiffed eight and walked four as his mark went to 1-1. Dick Salz got two of Garrigan's four hits and Dick Bleich belted a double in the losing cause. Milder went the first 4 1/3 innings in the finale and Reding finished up. Milder took the loss and is also 1-1. He struck out seven and walked three and Reding whiffed four and issued one free pass. The locals outhit the winners, 4-3.
