Wild Night Of Driving; Feature To Edgington The feature turned Into a demolition derby, with only three of the field of 14 ears finishing, as smash-ups, thrown wheels and blown tires created an exciting night of racing Friday at Kossuth Speedway. Jim Edgington hung on through it all to take the finale, with Butch Householder second and Howie Custom third. When the checkered flag dropped, 11 cars had been forced to the pits or left on the edge of the track due to damage from mishaps. It was hectic. A total of three re-starts were necessary during the first lap. Four cars piled up gently, with most severe damage to one driven by Bud Petersen the first time around, then four more during the next try. A 2-car pile-up occurred right after the third re-start and there was another a little later. Gene Schattschneider, point leader until Friday, was involved in three of the mishaps and his auto finally went over the south end of the track and out for good a little later. Two cars lost wheels in the second heat, there was a collision during the trophy dash and another vehicle flipped a wheel In the B-feature. Schattschnelder won the first heat, with Denny Nielsen second and Don Hilbert third; Householder won the second heat, with Roy Peltz second and Dick Simpson third. The third heat went to Edgington as Orie Shipler and Tony Trieweiler took second and third; Peltz grabbed the trophy dash, Householder and Schattschneider taking second and third; and Nielsen, Greg WhUe and Gary Hill finishing in the top spots in the B-feature. Then came the climax - and what a finish. There are no official records on time required to run a 20-lap feature here, but the one Friday must have been one of the longest. All the excitement made the time pass rapidly, however. Anpther program is on tap this Friday, with warm-ups at 8:30 and the first race at 9 p. m. SPORTS John Hamilton J.C. Junior Golf Winner John Hamilton, above, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hamilton, Algona, won the annual JayCee Kossuth County Junior Golf Tournament, held at the Country Club here Saturday morning. Of 14 entrants, 10 were from Bancroft, four from Algona. Hamilton, a member of the Garrigan golf team this spring, shot an 86 in a high wind to cop the trophy he is shown holding in the above photo. Bruce Olson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Art Olson, Algona, placed second in the meet with a 90, and with Hamilton will go to the State Junior Golf Tournament at Des Moines July 8-9. Their expenses will be paid by the local tourney sponsor. Jim Andreasen served as chairman of the event for the Jay- Cees. (UDM Polaroid Photo) Garrigan Loses Two By 6-5 Scores During Week Garrigaa's Golden Bears dropped a pair of one-run decisions, by identical 6-5 scores, Friday and Saturday, with late rallies by the opposition settling both contests. At Forest City Saturday evening, a run in the home half of the final frame allowed the Indians to dump the Bears, while Ft. Dodge high turned the trick the night before. Garrigan counted four runs with two out in the third Inning at Forest City and appeared to be on the way to victory. Denny Long, Joe Becker, Dick Salz and Mike Lickteig banged singles and Bill Reding and Dick Muller doubles to give the locals a 4-1 lead. Chuck Geilenfeld reached on an error, went to second and third on passed balls and scored on a sacrifice by Long to make it 5-1 in the top of the fourth. Forest City knotted the count with a four-run outburst in the fifth and won it with one in the seventh. Don Potthoff hurled the first four innings for Garrigan and Bill Reding finished and took the loss. Dick Muller and Salz each got a pair of safeties for the Bears. Winning pitcher was J. Anderson. Box score: GARRIGAN AB R H Long 311 Becker 3 1 1 Reding 4 1 1 D. Muller 412 Salz 302 Lickteig 3 0 1 Wagner 300 Geilenfeld 3 1 0 Potthoff 200 J. Muller 1 0 1 29 5 9 - o - LOSE FRIDAY A five-run rally in the top of the fifth inning allowed Ft. Dodge high school to post a 6r5 verdict over Garrigan's Golden Bears here Friday evening. The loss leveled Garrigan's season mark at 7-7. It also ended a three-game win string for the locals. Coach Duane Kramer's club was slated to meet Eagle Grove here last evening (Monday), Humboldt here tonight (Tuesday) and Mason City here Wednesday, with all gamesslated to begin at 8p.m. Thursday evening the Bears meet St. Edmond at Ft. Dodge. The Bears held a 3-1 lead early in the fray and upped it to 5-1 in the home half of the fourth - using an error to add a pair of tallies. The Dodgers bombed Bill Milder and Don Potthoff, who hurled for the locals, for the winning five runs in the next inning, then hung on to win. Dick Muller led the locals with, a pair of safeties, while Joe Becker, Bill Reding, Mike Lickteig and Jack Muller each got one. Reding finished on the hill for the Bears. Bears Punch Out 10-5 Victory Over West Bend Garrigan scored in every inning except the home half of the third on the way to a 10-5 victory over West Bend here Wednesday night. The win was the third straight for Coach Duane Kramer's club and upped the Bears' season record to 7-6. Don Potthoff hurled the first five frames and got the win. The Bears were ahead, 9-2, at the time and Bill Milder pitched the last two innings. The pair of right banders allowed five hits, struck out 13 and gave up three walks. West Bend scored single runs in the first and second and a trio in the seventh, while the Bears came up with one in the first, three each in the second and fourth, two in the fifth and one in the sixth. Singles by Denny Long and Joe Becker led the first counter; Algona, (la.) Upper DM Moines Tuwday, June 28, 1966 AHS-GHS Fans Readying Baseball Meeting July 7 The baseball game that most fans in this area look forward to each year will be played at Garrigan Field Thursday, July 7, at 8 p. m. That's when the Golden Bears meet Algona High's Bulldogs in the first round of the Sectional Tournament. With the memory of last year's 2-1 victory in an extra Inning by the Bulldogs still quite clear-it's hardly possible this year's meeting can be that exciting. But when the two local clubs get together, the result is usually a spine-tlngler from start to finish. A crowd of 1,200 persons saw the last get-together in baseball a year ago. Through games played last Wednesday, the Bulldogs had an 8-1 season mark and the Bears were 7-6, with Algona High working on a 4-game winning skein and the Garrigan club victorious in its last three outings. Both are good fielding teams (most of the time) and the pitching, with Craig Espe and Larry Scobba handling the chores for the public school and Bill Milder, Don Potthoff and Bill Reding hurling for the Bears, is fairly even. So, it looks like another sparkler. Sectional meets will be played at four sites in this area, Garrigan, LuVerne, Livermore and Thompson. The schedule for area teams looks like this: Garrigan: July 6 - Burt- Sentral, 6:30; and Swea City- Titonka, 8 p. m.; July 7 Algona-Garrigan, 8; July 9 Burt-Sentral winner - SweaCity- Titonka winner, 6:30; andBritt- Algona-Garrigan winner, 8; July 11 - semi-finals, 8. LuVerne: July 6, Clarion- Corwith-Wesley, 6:30; July 7 - LuVerne-Boone Valley, 8; July 9 - Eagle Grove-Corwith- Wesley-Clarion winner, 6:30; and LuVerne-Boone Valley winner vs. Goldfield-Kanawha winner, 8; July 11 - semifinals, 6; July 13 - finals at Bode, 8. Livermore: July 6 - Twin Rivers-Ft. Dodge, 8; July 8 Twin Rivers-Ft. Dodge winner- Ft. Dodge St. Edmond, 8; July 11 - semi-finals, 8. Thompson: July 6 - Ledyard- Rake, 8:30; July 8 - Thompson- Ledyard-Rake winner, 8; July 11 - semi-finals, 8; July 13- finals at Garrigan, 8. walks to Mike Lickteig, Chuck Geilenfeld and Long, a sacrifice by Becker and a triple by Dick Salz sent in the runs in the second; and error, sacrifice, walks to Potthoff and Long and a double by Becker plated three in the fourth; a walk to Lickteig, single by Geilenfeld and double by Salz, two in the fifth; and the final run on a walk to Long and double by Dick Muller. Geilenfeld and Long were each 1-for-l, Becker and Salz, 2-for-3 and Dick Muller 2-for-4 in the game. Blair went all the way on the hill for the losers.

OMVI Charged After One-Car Mishap Here The Algona police department and a member of the highway patrol investigated a one-car accident about 10:55 Saturday evening, when a car driven by Rodney H. Johnson, 31, Algona, hit a tree in the 1100 block on East State street. Johnson, driving south in a 1958 Pontiac, was attempting a right turn when he veered across the street and hit a tree in the south parking. He was treated and released from St. Ann hospital for a cut lip. Police estimated the car a total loss, and they charged Johnson with possessing no driver's license.
