First LuVerne Loss, 5-4, To A.H.S. Bulldogs Hold These Are American "Indians" On After 4 R^L 9 Runs In First Algona registered two games on the winning side of its season record with wins over LuVerne and Humboldt. The 5-4 win over LuVerne here Wednesday brought the Bulldog record above the .500 mark to 5-4. Friday's 3-0 shutout at Humboldt moved it to 6-4 and evened Algona's conference record at 3-3.

Algona beat the Eagles 4-1 in their first meeting at Eagle Grove. Algona dealt LuVerne its first loss in seven games, edging the visiting club in a 5-4 thriller Wednesday. The win avenged an earlier 2-0 defeat at LuVerne. The Bulldogs jumped off to a 4-0 lead in the first inning on two walks, two Lion errors, a single by Skip Perkins, and a triple by Dale Teeter. LuVerne battled back for three runs in the third on singles by Hanselman, Bart Selby, Bob Maass, and Trauger. The Lions tied it at 4-4 in the top of the 7th when Roger Hansen singled and scored on Hanselman's triple. Perkins third hit of the game gave the Bulldogs a base-runner in the bottom of the 7th. A passed ball allowed him to reach 2nd, and Roger Meyer's third single brought Skip the rest of the way around for the winning run. Larry Scobba registered win number three against no defeats, striking out five. Box score: Algona AB R H L. Scobba, p 400 B. Farnham, Ib 410 S. Perkins, cf 4 2 3 R.

The little curve- bailer fooled Wildcat hitters repeatedly with his slow-curves and adequate fast ball. He held Humboldt hitless after issuing a first-inning single to Burr. Espe struck out 12 for the night and walked four. Dale Teeter and Bill Farnham helped "Eggie" along with solo home runs in the 4th and 6th innings respectively. Each rap was aided by the missing outfield fence. Teeter's drive ""! f^ KOSSUTH COUNTY ^ SPORTS] Twmday, Jun* 29, 1965 Algona (la.)

Wildin Sweeps Three Races, Stock Program Les Wildin, who started the evening in tenth place in the point standings for the season, barely missed a four-event sweep during the weekly modified stock car program at the fairgrounds Friday night. Les copped the feature, handicap and a heat race, but was edged in the time trials by Gene Schattschneider, who has won that event three straight weeks, by 3/100ths of a second. Orie Shipler captured the hobby feature, which was a slam-bang event. D<5h Doocy, Bancroft, crashed his blue coupe into the northwest fence during the second lap and one lap later, Leonard Pesicka, Jr. rolled his red sedan in the north turn. Neither driver was hurt. Other mishaps during the fast set of races included a collision between Bob Haag and Dick Simpson right after the start of the third heat, with neither car damaged, and another in the feature when Schattschneider and Rich Green collided on the north turn, with both cars forced out of action. Green was taken by ambulance to St. Ann hospital, but it was thought he was just shaken up. Wildin had little trouble winning the feature, which saw 12 cars start and six finish. He and Schattschneider combined with Larry Nerdig to put on a fast handicap event as Wildin won it for the second straight week. There were seven re-starts due to mishaps and spin-outs during the night. Results - modified: time trials - Schattschneider, :18.12; first heat - 1. Wildin, 2. Green, 3.
