The party will be hunting with bow and arrow. The trio are driving to California; they will camp out enroute and plan to supplement their meals with fish caught in the national parks. In A venal, Calif., they will be joined by Chuck Wehmeyer, a teacher and friend of Mr. Nettleton. In order to reach the hunting grounds they will fly from Los Angeles to the mountains of the island where they have a cabin rented. Santa Catalina is owned by Wrigley of the chewing gum industry and they have a permit to hunt. The island is about 20 miles long and 7 miles wide. One town, Ava- lon, has a population of 1500, a great many of whom live in elite homes. Before returning to Iowa they will visit in California with an uncle, Kenneth Samp, and Tom's grandmother, Sclma Godfredson, former Algonans. The trip was planned about a year ago so the boys, both to enter their senior year in high school, have worked hard and saved a little over one hundred dollars each. Philip shoveled snow, carried out groceries, and washed walls while Tom worked on the farm of the Louis Krulls, Burt. Together the boys caught and sold live pigeons for a man in Orange City who sells them in other States for trap shooting. Tom is the son. of the Lowell Samps, and Philip the son of the Bill Spechts. Algona high school stayed unbeaten with its second summer baseball win Tuesday night as the Bulldogs edged Eagle Grove there under the lights, 4-1. The locals had beaten Bri.lt in the opener, 5-0 last week. The local* met Lu Verne Wednesday there and then travel to Hampton Friday to complete a full week of activity. Algona got started off right in the North Central Conference summer race as Steve Hardy and Craig Espe continued.lo iurl a stout six-hitter and their mates got runs in the first; fifth and sixth innings. Hardy got seven strike outs and pitched out of trouble in several innings. In the sixth Eagle Grove got its only run and had the bases loaded after two singles and two walks. But Espe came on to get Yoder on an easy tap back to the mound and the threat ended. He had no trouble ending the game in three straight outs in the seventh. ALGONA GOT its first run in the first when Larry Scobba reached first on an error and came home on Skip Perkins' double. Algona iced the contest with two more runs in the fifth on walks to Hardy and Scobba and singles by Perkins and Doug Barr. Algona added its final run in the sixth on a double by Meyer and Hardy's sacrifice. Perkins banged out three of the five Algona hits. Peer to compete in NCCA meet Friday Gary Peer, Algona, along with several Luther college teammates, left Kansas City by plane Wednesday for Long Beach, Calif., where he will compete in his final college track meet of his career. Peer will be running in the NCAA finals at Long Beach, for the second straight year. He graduated from Luther last month. Peer earned his way to the college-division meet by winning in the Midwest region NCAA meet at Rock Island, 111. Saturday. Peer established a 440-yard intermediate hurdle record with a time of :54. The old record was :55.8. He has been a hurdle star at Luther for the past three years, finishing either first or second in almost every meet he has competed in during this span. He won the hurdles event at the Iowa Federation meet at Des Moines two weeks ago. Peer and his Luther teammates will have a day of rest before competing in the NCAA meet Friday. Last year, they also competed in the finals in California but ran a few hours after their plane arrived there and none of the runners did well.
