Schattzie Wins Three Events In Stock Races Gene SchattSchneider gunned his orange no. 56 to a triple win during the weekly stock car program at the fairgrounds here Friday night, further complicating the season point standings. At the beginning of festivities, he trailed Jim Edgington by a bare margin - and Edgington managed second place finishes in three events, so the points are about even for the two Algona firemen to date. Another program' is on the slate this Friday.- with a demo- lition d«rby thrown in tor good measure. Warm-ups are at 8:30 and the first race at 9 p.m. There was plenty of excite* ment Friday night - and when the din of roaring engines had halted, it was difficult to understand why there had been no re-starts required. The driving was excellent - and time after time, expert maneuvering of cars averted possible serious mishaps. Fastest events were the feature and trophy dash - and both were run after the track had been ironed out and was in good condition. Schattzie copped both, defeating Edgington each time, after earlier grabbing a win in the second heat. Edgington and Denny Hovinga stayed right on his heels during most of the feature and Dick Simpson trailed the front-running Algona pair to the flag in the trophy dash. The first hear was one of the most interesting of the night - as the track was slick and the cars appeared to be driving on a frozen lake. Edgington led part of the way, but Hovinga slid past him to win it. Simpson rallied well after an early spin-out to gain his third in the second heart. Results: First hear - Hovinga, Edgington, Schoen; second heat - Schat- tschne'ider, Peltz, Simpson; third heat - Muss, Bill, Bait; trophy dash - Schattschnelder, Edgington, SUnpsonj B-feature - Trosper, Smith, Rlkehart; feature Schattschneider, Edgington, Hovinga. Surgery Saves Eyesight For Bancroft Boy A surgeon's scalpel has possibly saved a 12-year-old Bancroft boy from blindness. Dale Jensen, son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Jensen, was near blindness when major surgery at a Sioux Falls, S. D. hospital last month restored His sight. His trouble was traced to a pituitary gland tumor which was exerting pressure on his optical nerve. Dale had always been bothered by headaches. During the last two weeks of school this year, the boy noticed his eyesight was failing. Dale's condition first was blamed on tension, but after a series of x-rays and tests physicians suspected that a enlarged pituitary gland was responsible. Surgery was performed by a specialist at Sioux Falls. The tumor removed was not malignant, but cobalt treatments were used to guard against future problems. Mrs* Jensen reports that physicians indicated that pressure caused by the tumor "would have killed' the boy. Dale's headaches are gone and his sight has returned. A vision test given him recently indicated his eyesight is now normal. Dale has two brothers, Freddie and Jay, and a sister, Cindy, Mrs. Carrie Kruse of Ringsted is his grandmother.
