The co-champions of the Register- land conference ended the season with 13 wins and only three losses, (10-2 in the league.) They were also runner-up in the recent Sectional Tournament played at Strawberry Point. First baseman Don Timmerman was the leading hitter on this year's aquod wiltl an average . of .•400 (he hit .273 last year when the Cards won nine and lost three. Don had 18 hits in 44 times at bat, which included 5 doubles, one triple, and one home run. He had 12 runs batted in. In the runner-up position was Jim Timmerman with an average of .353, 20 points over his last year's averagt. Jim had 18 hits in 51 times at bat, which included two doubles and one triple. His 16 RBI's lead the team. Only two percentage points behind his brother was Ron Timmerman. He hit .351 with 13 hits in 37 times at bat which included two doubles, two triples, two homeruns and 14 RBI's. Ron hit .308 last year. Bob Hubbell just about doubled his average this year as he hit for a .310 average. Bob was nine for 29, which included a triple. Tom Butters, playing his first year on the Varsity, hit .304. He had 14 hits in 46 times at bat, including four doubles. Larry Williams had the most stolen bases for the Cards this season. He had 13 and his batting average was .280, considerably higher than last year. Ken Butters had 11 hits in 49 times at the plate for an average of .225. Ken also stole eight bases. Lee Burns ended his high school baseball with a .220 average. He was 11 for 50, including a double and a triple. He also stole nine bases. Sonny Salmon and Howie Hubbell ended the season with .188 and .143 batting averages. Both have four more years of competition remaining and should Improve greatly. Jim Timmerman was the work horse of this year's squad as he pitched 63 innings in 11 games. In wipning six and* losing two, Jim gave up 46 hits, walked only 10 and had 77 strike outs. He saved two games. Senior Larry Williams ended with a 5-0 record He pitched 28 innings, gave up 16 hits, 23 bases on balls, and had 30 strike outs. Tom Butters pitched in three games and .eight innings. He won one and lost one. Tom gave up six hits, 12 bases on balls and had 10 strike outs. Fayette out-scored their opponents this year 101 to 42 and out hit them 115 to 68. The Cards had 27 extra base hits compared to 12 for their foes. Fayette also had 27 more stolen bases, 22 more walks, 28 less strike outs, and (including Sundays and the Fourth of July), and these people made sacrifices so their sons and workers could be in top playing condition. I think they can see that these sacrifices payed off. Also thanks to the mahy fans that followed the squad all summer long, the fellows and I appreciated it."

Oelwein took advantage of four Curd e.rors in the first two innings and built up an early M) lead which was more than they needed. They added one in each the fourth and fifth inning for their seven runs on eight hits. Fayette knocked on the scoring door several times but iimltln't come through with the big blow to drive a run across. In the second inning with the bases loaded and only one out, a rally failed. Runners were left stranded in the third and fourth frames. Again in the sixth the Cu-cls loaded the bases, but failed to si-ore. Fayt-tte left eight men on base.

Lutherans break ground For new church addition A ground breaking ceremony for a $1.1,000 building addition was a part of the morning service at Grace Lutheran church, Fayette, on Sunday August 5. Participating in the service were the chairman of the congregation, Arnold Meth; members of the building committee, D. Albert, Eldred Dummermuth, H. Huebner, E. W. Maurer, L. L. Meyer, and the Rev. Norman Betke. The addition to be built on the south end of the present church will provide class rooms for Christian education, a new entrance to the church, over-flow seating for the nave of the church, a church office, and a small lounge for use of Upper Iowa university students. Plans for this addition were in- itiated over a year ago when the increased Sunday School enrollment indicated u definite need for expansion. In his sermon Rev. Betke traced the history of the building program and encouraged the people to accept the challenge similiar to the one given by the Prophet Nehemiah to "Arise and Build." "God has blessed the preaching of the Gospel here so that our 20th anniversary year has also become a year of building at Grace church," Rev. Betke said. "Our beautified and expanded house of worship is our contribution to the ever-growing list of improvements taking place in our Fayette community." ington; Gertrude Duckett Stewart, gil W.
