Alflono, (la.) Upper DM Moln«« Tu**day, Awgutt 9, 1964 Giants Win Senior League The Giants, coached by Rick Slobe, wrapped up the Senior League title In Little League play here recently with a 9-1 won- lost record. Eight of the squad members are shown here. In the front row, left to right, are Frank Black, Rick Nielsen, Wayne Pedersen and Mark Olson. In back, left to right, Coach Slobe, Phil McCarthy, Gary Hagen, Craig Carson and Neil Anderson. The Giants, who posted four close decisions on their way to the title, suffered their only loss by one run, 6-5, to the Astros in the third game of the-season. Other squad members during the season were Joe Sires, Michael Schneider, Kenneth Friedrich, Steve Kern and John Chrischilles. (UDM Polaroid Photo) Schattschneider Takes 3-Straight Second Time Gene Schattschneider managed to edge into the season point total lead with another trio of victories in the weekly stock car program at the fairgrounds Friday night before a large crowd. He turned in the same job a week earlier and has now posted six straight wins in six outings. There will be no races this Friday, but two big nights, Aug. 16 and 19, are on tap during the Kossuth County Fair, with the finale being the Fair Championship . in which drivers will compete for a $1,000 guaranteed purse. Track Manager Dwight Cook announced Friday night the annual Kossuth Speedway Championship event will be held here Friday night, Aug. 26 - and a Powder Puff Championship will also be featured. Schattschneider and Bud Petersen, both veteran Algonapilots, FOR CALCIUM AND PROTEIN Add nutrition to every meal with quality dairy products from .... had a lot of fun racing against each other in the trophy dash and feature Friday night. Both driving orange sedans, Petersen and Schattzie both turned in top efforts before the excited fans. Petersen led for quite a while in both events before Schattschneider . was able to weave his way past and get to the checkered flag first. Both gunned their cars all the way and times in each event were considered fast. Earlier in the night, Petersen annexed his first of three seconds, coming in behind Jim Edgington, who started the night leading in points. Third went to Denny Hovinga. Schattschneider grabbed the second heat, out-driving Les Frieden and Darreld Bunkofske to win, and the third heat went to Don Hilbert, with Dale Rike- hart and Jim Kephart second and third. There was one restart in the third following a minor collision early in the race. The trophy dash was re-started twice, both when Rikehart had trouble. He spun out on the northwest turn the first time around and flipped a wheel the next time and wound up in the pits. The B-feature started with a normal number of cars — and wound up with only two remaining. Dick Simpson took the win, edging Dick Yeoman who drove much of the race without a right front wheel. A car driven by Speed Harig bounced off the south end after it lost a wheel, but for some reason, the sedan didn't flip. One re-start was required in the feature after Willie Muss was bumped and spun out on the north turn. Bunkofske was third in the feature after Schattschneider and Petersen drove it hard and cozy all the way. 1 A Demolition Derby, held after the program, was won by Doug Pesicka.
