The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, June 30,1936 GRAYSPOUND OITT16HITS, BEAT AZTECS Stage Rally in Fourth; Take Game Friday, 11 to 8 Plastering the old horsehide to the winds, the Algona Grays came from behind in a big fourth inning rally, last Friday night, and sprang a surprise victory, winning from the Mexican Aztecs, of Mexico City, by a score of 11 to 8. It was a good ball game, with both teams poudnihg the ball hard and often. The Grays pounded out 18 hits, sending the first Mexican pitcher to the bench in the fifth frame, and hitting his successor in almost the same way. Art Sorensen, hu'rllng for Algona, struck out 11 batters. A rain late in the afternoon made the outfield slippery and helped the batsmen to some extent, but the Grays cannot be robbed of due credit, because they proved again that they are a hard-hitting ball team. Ornelas, first pitcher, stated that the locals were as hard a hitting team as the touring club has seen frfr some time. The Mexicans had previously defeated Forest City and Charles City before coming to Algona. "Scrubby" Anderson had a big day at the plate, and Wander and Traul also proved to be the money hitters, driving in runs when men base consistently. The Grays Meet Forest City On Thursday • Algona's Grays will attempt to make it three games in a row over Forest City's Collegians, when they meet them Thursday night on the Algona diamond at 8:45 p. m. The Collegians will come here fresh from a game with Omaha of the Western League on Wednesday night of this week. The admission for the Algona-Forest City game will be 40 cents and 25 c,ents. The contest, as always with Forest City, will be red hot, and the generous support of fans will be appreciated. Friday nlgftt the Grays travel to Charles City, Saturday they meet Bancroft on the fairgrounds diamond, Sunday afternoon they go to Forest City for a return game, and next Sunday night they will play a game here, probably with the Prager Beers of Des Moines at 9 p. m. In an exhibition game at Rice Lake. Tuesday of last week, Algona downed the Collegians, 9 to 3, with Riddle pitching four- hit baseball. His mates pounded out 11 hits off of Harder. on were Jtaenke boys also loked mighty good, while Red Corrick plnyrd a bang-up gnme nil the way around. , The big fourth inning 'rally started with two men out. Art Sorensen doubled, and scored on Anderson's double. Al Menke walked, ami Wander sent another hot double in the outer garden. Traul scored Wander with a single, and Johnny Menke came through with a triple to score Traul. Farnum struck out to retire the side.

The Packers are league lenders in southern Minnesota. Riddle's pitching, nnd fine field- ng behind him, which included two 'nst double plays set the visitors lown without any great trouble, ilthough in several spots the young Hurt hurler had to tighten up in 'inches. Anderson started the fireworks or the Grays in the first with n ouble, nnd Al Menke was hit by pitched ball. Wander was thrown lit nt first hut the runners nd- nnced, nnd Traul's screening douh- scored two runs. Trnul scored n John Menke's single, and Fnr- num brought Traul in with another single, before the side was retired. But Algona had four runs and the ball game. In the sixth, the Grays again hnd n big inning. Kelly reached first on an error, nnd Riddle went out. Anderson got n life on another error, nnd after A. Menke was thrown out. Wander drove out 8 single to score two runs, and him« self scored a minute later for three tallies. Goldberg, Austin hurler, after a had first inning, settled down and kept the hits well scattered the rest of the route, allowing seven after the first frame. He fanned 10, and Riddle whiffed five. One of the pleasing angles of the contest was the fine fielding of the Grays, nnd their continued ability to hit when there were runs on base. The boys played a fine, snappy gnme. one that well deserved .support of fans—about 15 carloads of whom parked in the outer road and tried to watch the game over the fence. State highway officers issue a warning that tickets will be given henceforth for the road parking, ns it is against the law to pnrk on a highway as was done.

His literary effort is reprinted below, received Saturday by The Algona Upper Des Moines. The writer is a grocer In Wisconsin. When I left your fair city I promised myself to sit down and write my observations of your parking rules and regulations. But since arriving home, and thinking it over, I have re* vised some of my original ideas. I did not dare tell anyone what I thought while there, because I was afraid of being arrested. But now I realize that if I hnd been arrested, by the time they found a place to park my sentence would have been up anyway, the jail torn down for an oil station, the justice of the peace elected governor and my Wisconsin license plates out of date, making me an undesirable transient. I understand that they are now repnvlng, etc. in an effort to remedy the parking conditions. I cannot understand what is meant by paving. You don't need paving, because you could not use what you had. What you needed most was oil pits out in front of the chain stores and spare room in the back to change tires. Also some kind of entertainment for the car- owners parked in the outside row to keep their minds off of trying to get by in the little bridle path in the middle of the street. If I remember rightly, It seemed to be annoying to think you wanted to get by. We only lost four fenders but of course that's no record, and maybe some of your home folks could do better, but we didn't have time to buy any more fenders and try to better our record. I heard over the radio the other day from Waterloo that some fellow was making a 24- hour endurance drive around the city. When I first heard it, I thought maybe he was warm- Ing up to go to the store In Algona but then I knew nobody from Algona would take out their car for a little trip like that. . I know now why they plant corn in Iowa. They raise it in the spring, go to Algona, spend the summer looking for a parking place, come home In the fall disgusted and cut the corn. Til bet the grocery business is good there on Saturday, because it most likely takes until Monday morning to get their cars out of the parking row, nnd by that time their stuff is old and wilted, and they have to start in buying all over again. I can see where there must be millions in it. I am on my way to our own Chamber of Commerce with the idea right now. Yours for more congested parking, Dave Kemp, Sparta, Wis.
