Algeria Nines Win A Pair Marshallfown Team Guests But Losers Marshalltown high school's Bobcats walked away with the state basketball title this spring* but learned a pair of baseball lessons when they invaded the lairs of Algona high and Garrigan here Saturday for a day-night donbleheader which was witnessed by many area fans. The Bulldogs thumped the visitors, 9-0, in the afternoon fray, while the Bears posted a 6-1 win in the nightcap. The wins upped Algona to 7-1 and Garrigan to 6-6 for the season. After 2 1/2 scoreless innings, the Bulldogs blasted the first game wide open with a barrage of base knocks, walks, heady base running and a little help from the Bobcat defense. Larry Scobba and Tim Van Horn of the visitors were locked in a fine pitching duel when the first Algona explosion resulted in three runs in the bottom of the third. Dale Teeter opened the rally with an infield tap. Bill Boldridge walked and Teeter was forced at third on a bunt attempt Gary Barr. However, Dave Martin banged a single to right, scoring Boldridge with the first run and sending Barr to third. Martin scampered to second on the throw-in. Then, with two out Tom Claude singled to left for two more counters. In the bottom of the fourth, Bill Farnham walked and Scobba got a hit to left. They wound up on second and third after an error and Farnham stole home to make it 4-0. It went to 7-0 in the last of the fifth when Barr walked, Craig Espe singled to left, Claude beat out an infield hit, Rog Meyer walked, Farnham reached on a fielder's choice and Scobba singled to center, sending in two. A walk to Martin, fielder's choice, double steal and single by Meyer plated the final pair in the sixth. Scobba's control was perfect. He allowed no walks and struck out four while giving up only four singles. Claude and Scobba each got two of the winner's eight hits. Marshalltown pitchers also whiffed four, but walked seven.

Barr 120 25 9 8 - o Marshalltown got its only run in the two games in the top of the first inning of the finale against Garrigan. A triple by Buchan and single by Abrahamson sent home the run, but in the final half of the same frame, the Bears knotted the count on a walk to Denny Long, sacrifice and double by Dick Mailer. It remained 1-1 until the bottom of the fourth, with Buchan of the Bobcats and Don Potthoff of the Bears locked in a pitching duel. Then a double by Potthoff to Upper Des Moines SPORTS Schattzie Wins 3 Gene Schattschneider grabbed the season point lead away from the rest of the field with three firsts in three starts during a good night of stock car races here Friday night. A large crowd watched an exciting program of races, which was climaxed by a Powder Puff Derby, with seven women driving. Largest field of the year, 26 cars, competed. Schattzie is shown in the above photo standing beside his number 56, with the award he won in the trophy dash perched on top of the vehicle. The popular Algona driver started tenth in a field of 12 cars in the feature, guided his car through the pack early, took the lead and managed .to hang on all the way to win the 20-lapper. Jim Edgington, who finished third behind Dick Simpson, Wesley, was right on the winner's heels until he got hit broadside about a fourth of the way through the event. He righted his car and was able to get up among the leaders. Edgington copped the first heat handily, winning over Butch Householder and Willie Kluss, while Schattschneider, Les Frieden and Don Hilbert were one, two, three in the second heat and Roy Peltz, Tony Dorweiler and Simpson finishing first, second and third in the third heat. Then Schnattschneider and Edgington had a fine battle in the trophy dash, with the former taking the cup in a close one. A standing start was used and both Schattschneider and Edgington had their cars damaged when the flag dropped as the car in front conked out. It didn't affect their performances, however. The B-feature was nabbed by Darreld Bunkofske in his lavender sedan, with Orie Shipler and Dorweiler behind him. Bad Petersen led much of the way, but his car stalled and he went to the sidelines. Diane Crow of St. Peter, Minn, easily won the Powder Puff event, driving the number 65 car owned by Wayne Meyer. Other contestants who helped make the event a happy one were Bev Zittritsch, Barb Schattschneider, Peggy Nelson, Dorothy and Bev Householder and Connie Neuroth. Only collision was a slight scrape on the south turn between the Zittritsch and Neuroth vehicles. (UDM Polaroid Flashfoto) center and a single to right by Long made it 2-1. Garrigan added a pair of insurance runs each in the fifth and sixth. Dick Muller did what few players have done at Garrigan Field to open the last of the fifth when he smashed a home run over the left field fence. His long shot out of the park was followed by a walk to Mike Lickteig, an error and two balks, with Lickteig waved in after the second. Long, who walked three times in the fray, opened the last of the sixth in that manner and went to third on Joe Becker's single. Becker trotted to second and both scored on a hard shot to left by Bill Reding. Muller's two extra base hits led the Bears' seven hit attack, but Marshalltownhurlersallowed eight walks, while striking out seven. Potthoff was tough in this one, whiffing six and walking but one. Buchan and Abrahamson were the only stickers the Bobcats had who caused much trouble. They each went 3-for-6 in the two games, getting two-thirds of their team's hits in the frays.
