OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY PAPER Awarded Highest Honors as "Iowa's Best Weekly Newspaper" By State University of Iowa, 1933 glgotta Upper Be* Jltome* 1934 FATR- AIJCTION EDITION Established 1865 ALGONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 1934 Section Two. VOL. 32.—NO. 35 AUTO SPEED KINGS ENTER KOSSUTH RACES WORLD'S CHAMP DIRT DRIVERS IN ENTRY LIST HERE Schrader, Haugdahl, Lake Among Stars; Races to Count Toward Title SIX EVENTS ON FRIDAY'S CARD World famous dirt track speedway drivers at the wheels of some of the fastest racing machines ever seen in action In the middle west—men who thrilled thousands at the Iowa State Pair last w«ek—will meet on the Kossuth County Fair track, Friday, Sept. 7, as a crowning climax to the big exposition's afternoon performances. Thrills galore await the record crowds of speed and motor fans expected to witness the sensational events. With liberal purses offered the winners, the greatest array of racing stars in the history of the local fair Is assured for the starter's flhfe In each of the six events scheduled. Sift Broke World's Record Included In the list of stars are Slg Haugdahl, who started man's record breaking achievement on wheels by streaking over the ground at Daytona Beach faster than any other man In history, a few years ago. There is Gus Schrader of Cedar Rapids, 1933 world's dirt track champion, "Spunk" Collins of Rcglna, Saskatchewan, Canada, and other strong challengers and sectional title holders. Points scored at the Kossuth fair meet will go toward the determining of the 1934 dirt track championship. More than a half dozen drivers are entered from Minnesota and Iowa. Los Angeles Entry The speed day program will start at 2 o'clock with the official time trials. The first regular race will start a few minutes later. Roy Lake of Los Angeks is another entry here. He has captured laurels on the west coast and throughout Texas, and Is making his first expedition up Into more northern territory. He will b*- at the wheel of his new Cra- fcar-Mlller special. Lake has made his headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota, durinp; recent weeks, visiting relatives, and will come here direct from Minnesota's capital city. Points Here to Count Slg Hauprdnhl, one of the world's classiest drivers, Is a diminutive Norwegian, who usually smokes a cigar flurlntr hl.s raws, whether they are lit «• not. He Is driving a new Miller racing car, lighter than any of its type, and one that develops over 200 horsepower. New records are in the making at the county fair track. Harold Haijen, dtetriot representative of the contest board of the International Motor Contest Association, disclosed today that the Algona sanction had been granted and as the meet Is classed as an "A" meet, many of the top ranking pilots will compete in 1h-- Kojsuth county races. Points will be awarded in the major sweepstakes event at Algona which will be counted toward this year's speed supremacy. Gus Schrader, Iowa's own, walked away with a great many laurels at the Iowa State fair, but with a smaller track here, his speed may not count for quite as much, as skill in navigating the turns will be an Important factor. However Gus' advantage may be cut, he will be one of the stars, and on ( > of the showiest drivers on the track. 125 Entries in County Fair by Kossuth's 4-H Club Exhibitors Youngsters to Show One of Finest Group of Animals on Record All Seneca School Teachers Back But One; Began Monday Seneca: The Seneca consolidated school opened Monday morning.
