Schattschneider Wins Season Stock Car Title Gene Schattschneider, who has been among the point leader s each year since Kossuth Speedway opened on a regular basis six years ago, clung to a second place finish in the feature after placing first in a heat race and fourth in the trophy dash before a large crowd here Friday night to annex the season point title. Schattschneider's orange no. 56, owned by Dutch Honsbruch, Algona, edged no. 65, owned by another Algonan, Wayne Meyer, in total points, 1,447-1,385, for the trophy. Schattschneider held a 97-point lead when the first race got underway on the final night of racing, but victories in the feature and trophy dash after a second place finish in a heat race by Ted Zeimann, veteran Mason City pilot who was driving Meyer's car in the absence of regular driver Jim Edgington, narrowed the gap. Trophies were awarded to Schattschneider, Honsbruch, Peggy Nelson, Algona, who copped the Powder Puff cam- pionship, and Zeimann for his trophy dash win. Zeimann's trophy was the 91st of a lengthy career. A Pioneer, la. man, R. T. Conlon, won a 1957 Pon- tiac from Ken's Auto Service here during a drawing before the final event. Schattschneider grabbed an easy win in the first heat, with Darreld Bunkofske and Butch Householder, second and third; Denny Hovinga edged Zeimann and Les Frieden to take the second heat with a good drive; Bud Petersen stayed just out of range of Dick Simpson and Roy Peltz to take the third heat; Zeimann, Frieden and Hovinga finished one-two-three in a fast run in the trophy dash; Willie Kluss won over a small field in the B-feature; and Zeimann, Schattschneider and Peltz copped top spots in the finale. Schattschneider thus became only the fourth driver to win a point crown in six years. Bob Garrett, Ft. Dodge, copped the title the first year, Bud Fair, Ft. Dodge, the second, then Les Wildin, Algona, who did not compete here this season, won three straight preceding 1966. The final program Friday featured good driving with a minimum of mishaps and no re-starts required. The caution flag was out three times during the 7-event run. SPORTSTCORNER Bears Begin Hard Work As Opener Only 10 Days Away Two-a-day workouts under Coach Beanie Cooper by Garrigan's Golden Bears for the past week have been used to acquaint squad members with the offensive and defensive play expected of them during the coming season. The Bears, who open the 1966 slate here against Estherville Friday night, Sept. 9, have spent a lot of time on fundamentals, signals and assignments as Coach Cooper and his assistants attempt to ready the club in time for the opener. Single practice sessions went into effect this week when the school year opened, but much was accomplished the preceding week. Hotter weather probably would have been a benefit for conditioning. The squad ran through plays, etc, Friday night as a part of a Booster Club session, giving the fans a first look at the team in game regalia. There seems to be pretty good competition for many of the positions on the starting club, which normally is healthy, because "a weak bench normally means a weak team," according to Coach Cooper. During a recent drill session, three quarterbacks were running separate sets of backs through signals, with Bill Reding, who is expected to be the starter, Tom Black and Jim Boudewyns at the throttle. Timing has been stressed and must be perfect if the "I" formation is to allow the Bears to gain on the ground and through the air. The up-front contingent is being led by ends Dick Muller and Jim Youngwirth, guards Mike Crotty and Gene Lickteig and tackles Bob Schmitt and Jack Muller. There seems to be plenty of beef in this crew and if they will throw it around in the right directions, the Bears' monster defense will click. Garrigan will be out to improve upon a good 3-4-1 mark posted during the 1965 season. The tie was with Estherville in the first game. More head- knocking will be featured in scrimmages before the opener as conditioning fades into the background and toughness takes over. QB Search Continues In AHS Football Workouts At the conclusion of the first week's drills, Coach Keith Christie had Bill Boldridge, Roger Barr and Rod Rogert operating at quarterback for the Algona Bulldogs. Christie, who's starting his first year at the helm of the high school varsity, said his club had looked "beautiful one day, terrible the next" and so on through the two-a-day sessions that began earlier last week. He's got 13 lettermen- but that number is misleading as a majority of the returnees from last year's squad that lettered did not play as regulars - and at least a couple that did now find themselves in new positions for the start of the 1966 campaign. When asked who his best passer was, the coach said Boldridge, Barr and Rogert can all throw the short ones, but it appears, at least at the pre- sent, that none can handle the long bomb. Top receiver, on the basis of work so far, seems to be Tom Claude, who performed at guard part time last year. He's been moved to end on offense and is expected to hold down a line backing job on defense. There's hustle galore so far but it's apparent the Bulldogs are goint to have to mature in a hurry if they are going to make a dent in their 8-game schedule which opens Friday night, Sept. 9, at Emmetsburg, in the lone non-conference fray of the year. Running backs who have gotten a good workout so far include Steve Waller, Rich Black, Bob Farnham, Randy Riedinger, Larry Taylor and Greg Belts. Farnham, reserve fullback last season, led the returnees in yardage during 1965 with 121 yards in 31 trips for a 3.9 average per crack, counted two touchdowns and a pair of extra points. The passing game has been getting a lot of attention. It must be developed if the halfbacks and full backs are going to be effective, for only Webster City in the North Central Conference has been able to operate successfully through recent years without having to throw the ball to loosen up the defense. Up in the line, Don Hagen center who played some last season, Tom Jones, a regular tackle, and Larry Munger, will have to serve as the nucleus, this trio is capable of fine defensive play- and IF four others equally as tough can be found, the Bulldogs could be rugged on defense. Another lad who should help out quite a bit is Max Miller, who was active on offensaand defense Timdcry, August 30, 19W last JU1. He's built low to the ground and capable of making his share of plays. Besides the lettermen, Christie has 17 other lads, including some with good size, who could help shape the locals into a rugged outfit before the opener. If hard work will get the job done - the Bulldogs will shape upl GO GO 10 TALL PAUL'S SEE CHARLENE LONG NOW!
