Leon Vann, who served as director of the program here last year, is again serving in that post. He annuonced that games will be played at H p.m.. Monday through Thursday, each week at the two sites. Besides the regular season games, July 2-5 and Aug. 2-9 have been designated as dates for makeup games, if necessary. All players in the three leagues will be supplied with caps and T- shirts by the Salesman's Bureau of the local chamber of commerce and service clubs who cooperated in a fund-raising effort. One black note — 'umpires are sorely needed — and Vann, Barr and the coaches present at last week's meeting are requesting that anyone who can serve in that capacity should do so. Older high school boys who have a general knowledge of baseball rules were mentioned as possibilities for urn piring duties — if they would of fer their services. Anyone interested in furthering the litle league program here with an occasional umpiring job should contact Vann, CY 4-2544, and sign up. The shortage is acute. Practically all other problems have been ironed out — and most ooys i and coaches) are now anxiously awaiting the first call ol "Play Ball". Swimming Pool 2,000 Fans See SchattzieWin Stock Feature The largest stock car crowd in Kossuth Speedway's history, 2,000 cheering persons, witnessed one of the finest race programs ever seen here the evening of Memorial Day, May 30. It was the second •session of the present season. As was true In the seasoii- oprning program May 19. a local driver received most of the support of the crowd and responded with a top-flight job of driving. This time it was Gcnr Schattscluioider who gunned the orange number 50 to victory in the feature, won the time trials willi a timing of :2I.22, took second in a heal race and threw a wheel in the handicap while making a bid for another win. Another Algona car — 00, driven by Les Wildin, who won three races and the time trials opening night, went out of action in the first heat when the rear axle sheared and the right rear wheel spun off in front of the grandstand. Schattschneider's win in the feature served as a fitting climax to his efforts during the night. He wheeled his car in and out of tight scrapes all evening, then after taking a good lead midway through the finale had to fight off a last- lap challenge by Darrell Burns of Estherville to win. Burns, always a top competitor here, was the only driver to wind up with two firsts. He took the first heat race and the handicap besides placing second in the fea lure.

St. Edmond outhit the Legion Juniors, five to two, but errors offset that advantage. Bancroft hurler Smith struck out 10 in seven innings and walked only one, to notch a win in the first game of the season for his team. Bancroft tallied three in the fourth to sew up the game. Hatten.

He managed to steer his auto to :he outside of the straightaway and it was not damaged further. Schattschneider lost his right front wheel on the north turn near the end of the handicap as he made a move toward first place. The wheel caromed over the edge of the track, rolled nearly a block, bounced and fractured the top of '•iT-parked convertible in the parking lot, then rolled almost out of sight of the grandstand. A new wheel was installed in time for him to zoom from a ninth place start to his win in the feature.
