Harlan high school football coach Terry Eagen has announced the opening of a fund drive that will provide money to send Harlan high school athletes to a Fellowship of Christian Athletes summer camp. Eagen said he hopes between 15 and 20 boys can be sent to a June camp in Nor[h Carolina or August camp in Colorado. Eight athletes from Harlan attended the Colorado camp last summer, and Eagcn sai d he would like the number to double. "The athletes attending will be juniors or seniors next year," noted the Harlan coach, "and will be boys we expc t will be team leaders in their respective sports." Tuition for the camps is about $85, Eagen pointed out, but groups or individuals are urged to contribute in any amount. Eagen and those who attended last summer formed a Harlan high school "huddle i!i::i::!:: group" that included 2025 members in monthly meetings. The group had several projects, ilili::ii including speaking engagements at several churches and service organizations. In the fall, iiiiiiii the "huddle group" had an "athletes in action" program, in which they talked to citroen- i::iii::::i tary and junior high students about their athletic and christian experiences. ::;'::i.!i "We would like to sponsor as many boys as would like to go," reported Sagn, "and we :.iii::ii: hope to have enough money by May 1 so the boys can go to the North Carolina camp." !i!!i!!i Persons or organizations wishing additional information or wanting to contribute to the i::i::!i!:: fund are asked to contact the "Cyclone FCA", in care of Rick tfansen or Terry Eagen. i:i:!:i: i "We appreciated those who helped last summer," Eagn related, "and l hope the :i:i:i: ., iiiiiii program can be expanded to more boys this year." .:.:.:.: i!!!i!

Car "5 I! ....... CAR "55" CHANGES HANDS  Dale Swanson, owner of Swanson Automotive and builder of car "55" is shown above, at left, with new owner Paul Scott. The Harlan car finished third at Denison in 1967. Last year, with Bill Wrich behind the wheel, no. 55 finished first in the Denison mid-season cham- pionship; first in the Denison season championships; and was "king-of-the-high- banks" on the new Shelby County 4/10-mile dirt track. Photo and story by Jerry Davis. Dale Swanson sells '55' to Paul '69' Scott; 'won't00 have car tn The spring mgration has begun! Robins have been sighted in Harlan. the geese are on the move from down south, and dozens of mechanics are crawling under stock cars to prepare for the fast approaching race season. The "old master" Dale Swanson, will skip the 1969 season to devote full time to his boat and auto repair businesses. Swanson recently sold "the-car-to-beat". No. 55, to Paul Scott Harlan. Swanson and his very capable driver, Bill Wrich. Blair. Neb., have virtually handcuffed "A" feature competitors on western Iowa dirt tracks the past two years with the blue and silver racer. They grabbed both the Shelby and Crawford county speedway season cham- pionships last year. TRACTOR YELLOW Scott, who farms 800 acres 3 miles east and 3- 4-mile north of Harlan, will change "old number 12" to No. 112 His nephew, M(mty Hap.sen, age 24, will be 112's pilot in 1969. Cigar-smoking Scott. now 42, will repaint "55" American Tractor Yellow with the big red "12" on both doors. The only major mechanical change Scott plans to make on "55" is to add 4-bbl. car- buration (allowed for the first time this year on beth major western Iowa county tracks). Swanson estimated the "55" should turn the 4-10- mile Shelby County Speedway with a 4-bbl. in 20 seconds flat -- 90 mph plus. Wrich had 22 second timings last year with a 2-bbl. carb. The old pro added, "It (car 55) will develop over 500 h.p. at 6000 r.p.m.'s with the 4-bbl." Scott has yet to win a race. He's began his racing career at 41, an age when most drivers are hanging up the helmet and goggles. Scott has come a long way in his first year of auto racing. He finished 16th last year on "the highbanks" out of 75 total competitors when the final points were figured. His final standing at Denison was about the same. His nephews. Larry Scott (12x and Hansen. got Paul interested in auto racing just a little over a year ago when they let him drive "hot laps" in the green No. 13 at Denison. ONE IIOUR--ONE MINUTE Raymond Errett, who farms three miles west of Harlan is Scott's mechanic. Paul estimated that he. Larry and Monty have the biggest pit crew at every race. "My friends are always there to help out," Paul said, "We aver- age about one hour mechanical work for every minute the car runs." The work on the cars is done in Errett's machine shop on the farm Paul noted that the new 112 (old car 12 that Scott drove in 1968 would be equipped with a new motor and 4-bbl. and front safety hubs for the coming canapaign. "The boys will be traveling about 10 m.p.h. faster on the last half of the Harlan straightaways with the 4 barrels this spring," Swanson noted, "We'll have no car this year because business interests are keeping us too busy " Naturally Scott is eagerly awaiting the upcoming season, but he has promised to heed the advice of long time friend and nationally famous race driver DeWayne "Tiny" Lund. "For the first four or five races learn to handle that car (55), then make your move!" In the coming weeks we'll be visiting with many other drivers and stock car owners about their racers for 1969. To date, we have not received word of Bill Wrich's plans concerning stock car driving. Woodbine girls oust Audubon at state; enter consolation Harlan guard "unanimous" choice...
