Wesley's 1913 BB Club Algona (la.) Uppir DM MotnM-7 , No*. 1$, A well-known Algona man, John Schimmel, whose exploits raising and selling gladiolus have for some time drawn quite a bit of attention, but 50 years ago he was feared as a hurler for the Wesley town team. John furnished the photo above, snapped during that season - and while he wasn't able to tell us too much about the club's won-lost record, he does remember that Wesley beat Algona a few times that summer. And, do you know who Algona's pitcher was ? Tom Dailey, retired carpenter, who calls Algona his home. Members of the Wesley team include, front row, left to right, Bud Troy, second base; George Wolfe, shortstop; Al Connors, outfield; and George Lloyd, outfield. Standing, left to right, John Huff, third base; Mr. Schimmel, pitcher; George Vitz- them, first base; (blank) Connors, outfield; and Jake Ludewitz, catcher. Of the nine, several are known to be deceased. Mr. Schimmel, Mr. Vitzthum, who still lives at Wesley, and Mr. Huff, now of Britt, are the only ones known that are still alive. Mr. Wolfe died a short time ago. Earl & Sandy Give Baseball Talks While big Earl Battey, catcher, little Sandy Valdesplno, outfielder, and Jerry Snyder, publicity man for the Minnesota Twins didn't attract a large crowd to the high school auditorium during an appearance here last Wednesday night, the ones that were present got quite a kick out of the talks given by the three and a movie, "50 Years of Baseball Memories", that made up the program. Preceding the program at the school, three members each from the Kiwanis, Lions and Rotary clubs here, sponsors of the event, hosted the Twins representatives, Mayor Bill Finn, Keith Christie, Algona High baseball coach, Duane Kramer, Garrigan baseball coach, and three members of the press at a cocktail hour and dinner at Charlie's. Snyder was introduced by Mayor Bill Finn and in turn Introduced Valdespino and Battey for their short talks at the school. A question and answer period followed the talks. Battey'scool, confident delivery, interspersed with occasional punch lines dealing with his in baseball, proved to be the highlight of the night. The visit marked the second straight year Twins representatives have been featured here. (UDM Polaroid Fashfotos) REUNION Two sergeants during World War I met in Maquoketa recently for the first time since their discharge from active duty 47 years ago.

NOVEMBER 16 Open Pheasant Season Here Bean fields are harvested and most of Iowa's corn crop will be cribbed when hunters opened the pheasant and Hungarian partridge openings Nov. 12. Nationally, Iowa is rated as one of the top, if not the top, pheasant hunting spot. Due to the increased number of pheasants, the bag limit is three with a possession limit of six. Pheasant populations are reported to be heaviest in western, central northeastern, east central and south central sections. North central Iowa, for years considered as prime pheasant territory, does have several spots with good pheasant populations, biologists report, Early morning hunters should look for pheasants feeding in •picked corn fields for several hours after the 8 a. m. start, as well as the last few hours prior to the daily 4:30 p. m. closing. Mid-day hunting will be most productive in weed patches and sloughs where birds will be resting. Hunting on private land is a privilege, not a right. Sportsmen are urged by the Commission to ask for permission to hunt on private lands. Being courteous to farmers and respecting their property strengthens farmer- hunter relations and helps pave the way for future hunts, Mink populations equal to those of last year await Iowa trappers on the opening of the mink and muskrat seasons at noon Nov. 12, the State Conservation Commission said today, The entire state is open for this season which ends at midnight Dec, 31. Other fur bearers, raccoon, badger, skunk, opossum, beaver and civet cat, are also in good supply for their season opening at noon Nov. 12. The trapping season on these animals ends at midnight Feb. 23,1967. TOMATOES From seven hills of hybrid tomato plants Mrs, Adolph Han* sen, Ringsted, got over a bushel of tomatoes.
