Lehman, playing in a foursome of the Country Club course, Thursday evening, prepared to play his second shot on the second hole. He was about 25 feet from a small tree In the fairway. He swung, and the ball salted Into the tree. And then disappeared. An investigation disclosed that the ban had gone Into the branches of the tree, and stuck there. Lehman had to climb the tree to get the ban out. He decided that the lie in the branches was a bit too difficult even for his game. $4,000 SUIT IN CATTLE FOOTROT CASE CONCLUDED J. H. Jensen of Fenton, Defendant —Says Steers Were Infected A court case in which the Iowa livestock Market Corporation of Des Moines was seeking $4,000 from J. H. Jensen of Fen ton, former state representative, was concluded a few days ago in district couit here and taken under advisement by Judge F. C. Davidson, who heard the case. It seems that Jensen purchased 72 head of steers from the plaintiff and that when they arrived and were being unloaded, he found that they were not walking with the greatest of ease. An examination, he testified, disclosed that some 25 head of steers were suffering from footrot, an Infectious disease of animals, which may eventually cause them to lose their hoofs. Called to the witness stand were Henry Wegener and Philip Wander of tf'enicn, who testified that they so,w the animals being unloaded, and tnai they were suffering from [he d'sease at that time, before they camt off the car. The stecra were November 1, 1930. on The Algona Grays marched out on the Belmond diamond Thursday afternoon full of grim determination to wipe out the stigma of their defeat by the Collegians the night before. So to start things off, Scrub Anderson took a wicked swing at the first ball Mr. Harder had to offer and pulled up at third base with a triple. Just to keep things interesting, Al Menke came up and sent Scrub home with a neat little single. Leonard got to Brat on the pitcher's error and Traul's one bagger also helped bring him home. When the first inning was over Algona had a big number three up on top of a Forest City goose egg, which stayed there by the way for three innings. The Grays coasted along on an 11-4 lead until Forest City came to bat In the seventh. In that inn- Ing Lefty Atwell eased up a little and almost caused heart failure In the Algona crowd by walking two men and then letting Chell pound out a triple and Grandgard a double. Lefty decided that that was enough of that so he summoned Lichllter to his aid. But things looked pretty black when Briese, the first man to face him rammed one out over the cars at the end of center field. When announcing the ground rules at the start of he game, the umpire said a ball lit over the cars was a home run f the runner made it So Leonard chased after It and held the runner on third bane, but the umpire alowed him a home run on it nyway, which made so much wasted effort for Mr. Leonard. The Grays were a little bit skeptical about letting Forest City go into their half of the ninth Inning trailing by only two runs so Traul, Farnum and Johnny Menke went to work and brought In three more scores o give Algona a safe lead, mak- ng the final score 14 to 9. The Grays got a little case of tage fright Friday night and let he Charles City Lions sneak out 10-9 win over them In a very oosely played name that see-sawed back and forth for nine Inn- ngs. Beat Collegians Again After that brief interlude, Algona again went to work on Forest City, meeting them on their home [rounds, Sunday afternoon. Things ooked pretty black as the Colleg- ans knocked Lichliter out in the econd inning, bringing in four cores. But Al Menke, the giant iller of Algona's murderers row, brought the team back to life mashing one of Jerry Gardner's hoice curves twenty feet over the enter field Scoreboard for what all agreed was the longest home run ever hit out of the Forest City ball park. This put the pep back into the rest of the gang and they finally came out on the long end of 7-4 score. Al's homer, by the way, was bis second successive one out of that park. Down Prugers, 11-7 Feeling well satisfied over that triumph, the Algona boys made a day of it by slugging out an 11-7 victory over the Pruger Beer team from Des Moines. Squire Riddle hurled five innings of beautiful ball, loading the bases twice and striking out the batters without allowing a run. But he loosened up in the sixth and walked three men in a row, giving one a free ticket acrous the scoring plate. Several successive hits brought the runs across in a hurry and when they were finally halted six scores were in. But the Grays had tallied seven times already and they added four more to clinch the victory. Scrub Anderson paced the Algona sluggers with three doubles and two singles out of six times up. The team is not as Busy as usual this week as they play Boston Royal Giants, a crack Canadian team Thursday night, meet the Omaha Monarch*, colored team at the Titonka Indian Day cejebration and play the Minnesota All-Stars Sunday night. The Sunday night game promises to be a thriller as the Grays squeezed out a 3-1 victory over them once and Craig Deim, manager and pitcher, has lined up two or three more players and they'll all be out for revenge.
