Zeiman Cops Stock Car Opener; Run Here Friday Teeter Named Prep Ail-American warmed a pretty good sized crowd at Kossuth Speedways Friday as many of the top stock car drivers in the area competed for prize money. Ted Zeiman, a rugged competitor from Mason City who has spent a lot of time in sprint cars, midgets, modifieds and stock cars, fought off a constant challenge by Algona's Gene Schattschneider to grab the feature, a 20-lap run. Roy Peltz of Humboldt came in third. Promoter Dwight Cook expects a larger field than the 19 cars that showed up for the opening events, with several more slated to appear here this Friday night for the second program. Miny of th« cars being built for the track here just weren't ready when Friday rolled around - but will be soon. Undoubtedly the top races during the evening were the feature and the trophy dash. The trophy dash followed a pair of heat races and Don Hilbert and Schattschneider seemed to have a lot of fun battling all SPORJSrCORWR the way from the start to the finish. Hllbert led most of the time, went too high on the number two turn about two laps from the end and Schattzie took over, but only for a half-lap as he went high in the number four turn and Hilbert eased back into the lead which he held to the checkered flag, Zeiman was third - and not far back. Seiman led most of the way in the feature, with Schattschneider giving him a real go for his money. The Algona drivers feints and fakes nearly forced Zeiman out of the lead several times, but he managed to hang on and hit the finish line first in his black and gold sedan. Zeiman captured the first heat, with Don Doocy, Bancroft, second, and Hilbert third. Schattschneider had little trouble taking • the second heat, with Jim Edgington of Algona second and Willie Kluss of Clarion third. The B - feature went to Dick Simpson of Wesley, who will probably show the fans plenty in the way of driving this summer if his car will operate properly, Several of the vehicles had mechanical and engine problems, which are typical of racing on all levels. Joel Chipman, Burt youth who has been convalescing from severe injuries received in a tragic car mishap last summer, was winner of the 1957 Pontiac given away during the night. Schultz Bros, furnished the car. Algona's Bulldogs exploded for nine runs (seven before an out was made) in the home half of the fourth and went on to an easy 14-2 victory over Twin Rivers in the season opener here before a good crowd Friday afternoon. Coach Keith Christie's club is slated to travel to Burt for a 6:30 p.m. meeting with the Bears today (Thursday) in their second appearance of the new season. They hit the road again Friday, traveling to Webster City and a game with the Lynx, then host Eagle Grove here Tuesday, June 7, at 6:30 p. m. Until the last of the fourth, it was difflclult to figure who would win the Algona-Twin Rivers contest. The score was tied, 1 -1, at that moment and the locals had staged a mild rally in the last of the second to counter a one-run Twin Rivers push in the top of the same frame. The Pirates put together a walk to Dave Halsrud and singles by Rick Andersen and Mike Christensen for their first run off Craig Espe, Algona lefty. A single by Tom Claude and walks to Bill Farnham, Bill Bcld- rldge and Espe tied it. Thaf s the way it stood when Claude got his (and the team's) second hit opening the fourth. Then in order, came a walk to Bill Farnham, walk to Boldridge, single by Gary Barr for two runs, fielder's choice on Espe's bouncer, single by Dave Martin, fielder's choice on Dale Teeter's grounder, triple by Rog Meyer, an error, fielder's choice another error and a walk to Barr before Espe ended it by striking out. A couple of hit batters and singles by Doug Logue and Rick Andersen plated a Twin Rivers run in the top of the fifth, making it 10-2 before Algona used three walks and a hit batter to score a" run in the bottom of the same inning. The Bulldogs wound up the scoring in the last of the sixth when Dave Martin slammed a long home run to left after walks to Gary Barr.and Espe. Meyer uncorked his second triple of the fray after that, but was left stranded. The Bulldogs were errorless in the field and picked up a double play on a nifty grab of a pop bunt by Martin, while Twin Rivers committed three errors. Espe allowed four hits, struck 10 and walked seven. He also hit four batters, while Steve DeGroote and his successors on the mound for the losers allowed seven Algona hits, struck out nine and walked 11. Martin, Meyer and Claude of the Bulldogs and Andersen of Twin Riveys each garnered two hits. Box Score: ALGONA(14) AB R H M artin Teeter Peterson Meyer Scobba Claude R.

Swimming, boating, other water sports, and the kiss of the sun promises fun, relaxation, healthier and trimmer bodies for young and old during the next several months. The essential key to this enjoyment is serious attention to simple safety rules and the ability to handle a water emergency. Obviously the best guarantee to enjoying the water and the safeguard against drowning is to learn to swim. The ability to swim overcomes the Tear and sheer panic that grips non- swimuers when confronted with a water emergency. Swimming instruction for children and adults is available in communities across the nation. The Red Cross community learn- to-swim programs, using Red Cross volunteer instructors, make no charge for the instruction. Statistics show that over 60 percent of the 6,700 drownings last year occurred when an individual found himself accidentally in the water rather than entering the water intentionally. Many of these tragedies could have been averted by a simple reaching rescue. Unless the rescuer is a strong swimmer and skilled in life-saving he should never attempt a swimming rescue, or a double drowning may occur. Instead he should make a quick but calm survey of the immediate area and use the nearest and best rescue device available. If the victim Is close to shore, throw him a rope or ring buoy, or lie flat on the dock and extend him a pole, towel, shirt or beach coat to grasp. The rescuer may, while holding firmly to the side of the pool, extend a leg or arm to the victim and pull him to safety. If the victim is in deep water away from shore, the rescuer should wade to chest depth and offer a reaching assist while bracing himself and leaning backward toward the shore to avoid being pulled into the deep water. If the victim is too far out, shove a plank or toss a lifesaving device to him until you can get further help. A small row boat or a canoe can be used to rescue a swimmer in trouble by rowing alongside the victim so he can grasp thn stern or by extending an oar and drawing him to the stern. Then row back to safety. When using a powered craft to effect a rescue, approach the victim as you would a mooring, at low speed and slightly to one side, shut off the motor when within a few feet of the victim, throw him a lifesaving device, and pull him or have him swim to the boat and help him aboard. TIPS FOR SWIMMERS: 1. Always swim with a companion. 2. Swim in a safe place. 3. Know the area, and before diving make sure the water is deep enough and that there are no hidden objects such as submerged rocks. 4. Don't depend on a tube or inflated toy to support you in the water. 5. If you have not been swimming since last summer, take it easy at first. 6. Don't swim when overheated or overtired or right after eating. TIPS FOR BOATERS: 1. Enroll in a Red Cross, Coast Guard Auxiliary, or U. S. Power Squadron boating course. 2. Insist that children and non- swimmers wear life jackets. 3. Don't overload the boat. 4. Don't overpower the boat. 5. Equip your boat with safety equipment. 6. Check the U. S. Weather Bureau forecasts before taking boat on open water. 7. Don't smoke while refueling. 8. If your boat capsizes or becomes swamped and there are other boats nearby to help you, hang on to your craft until help arrives. Most boats will float, even when filled with water.
