Heibsamen, u pioneer settlor of Buffalo township. SPORTS CHATTER (By "Stew") Eldon Llndstrom of the Pearce Cafe and son-in-law of the owner, played football at Drake U. He was a member 6f the tesr,i that made a trip to Hawaii and was on the bottom with crushed bones when the pile driving Notre Dame backs went through the Drake team In Its annual fray. * * • todjrwd won the county baseball championship at Bancroft Thursday and will play In the district meet at Armstrong this week. Besides Ledyard, Burt, Lone Rock and Tltonka were contenders. These four teams won last fall after the county had been divided into four sections. A round-robin series was played. • • • In the game between Lone Rock and Ledyard a fierce pitchers' battle ensued. Jack Moulton, pitching for Ledyard, struck out 17 opposing hitters while Southpaw Earing set down 16, a feat considered greater because of the potency of the Ledyard team. Seven innings to the game, and but six hits allowed with a four to one score Is something to talk about. • • • Nanny Brims, a freshman at Simpson college, made the team as a regular at third base. In the first two competive games he went hltless but in the next three his hitting brought an average of better than .340 for the five games. Due to weather conditions these five games played represent more times than the team has been able to practice outdoors. • • • George Feeney who managed the Forest City Collegians the past three years Is playing on the Waldorf college team. Bunny Johnson, shortstop for the Collegians is a member of the St. Olaf nine. St. Olaf recently defeated Waldorf and that should have bearing when time comes for Mr. Feeney to hire Mr. Johnson. • • • The bull heads are biting. A couple of hundred fishermen and ladles took advantage of the exceedingly cold weather Sunday and lined the river banks near the bridges for the great sport Others went to the various lakes known as bullhead headquarters. Stories about dead fish lining the shores of Lost Island lake were exaggerated extensively. While some fish died from lack of oxygen, and were washed ashore at no time did one have to wade throgh dead fish to get to the water as reported In this locality. • • • Baseball at the Academy under Father Ahmann is progressing rapidly and earnestly. It takes sev- •raJ y**rm to moqutrt taMboJJ technique and these youngsters are learning the fine points of the game and In time will be nblo to execute them. No matter who they play this season If they win one game it will be a grrat feat. Every team on the schedule have played brill for years starting from the gruilp* on into high school. Patience and encouragement from the citizens and fans will dive Algonu a much needed sport diversion in the spring. • • • Father (Julnii of Fort Undue, athletic director of Corpus Christl high school, was recently elected president of u baseball semipro IcaHue, including two teams from Fort Dodge and five other central lowu cities. Father Quinn in u former Bancroft boy and attended St. John's high before taking up work for the priesthood.

CLUB Bancroft Outfielder Rates Favorable Comment in Register Walter Menke, Bancroft baseball player, widely known throughout this section for his ability along baseball lines, rated the lead par- ngraph In Sec Taylor's column, re' cently, in the Register. This time Sec had his dope correct, and not as In the case of Jim Duryea, where he seemed to think Jim had gone to the happy hunt- Ing ground. Quoting Sec: "Walter Mcnke, the outfielder from Bancroft, la., and Forest City, la., never has much to say but he has the old confidence. The other day Menke appeared at practice with a new glove. "Ball players never buy new gloves or shoes In the spring unless they're sure of making good, remarked Spencer Abbott, In a kidding way In Menke's presence. "Menke replied that Abbott was right, and that he intended to make good. The manager added that It looks like he will. He stated Men ke in a recent batting practice drove a ball far over the left field fence several times and Is rapidly overcoming his one fielding weakness—a failure to take his eye off a long fly ball. "Abbott explained that he should practice judging where a fly ball will drop the second It Is hit, run for that spot and turn under the ball, thus saving time." ANGLERS!
