The four later-model's were Wyman's 1968 Torino, Keith Cohhage's 1966 Chevelle, Milo Stadola's 1966 Chevelle, and Bob Kosiski's 1966 Chevelle. Two new cars on the track were Loren Thies's 1963 Chevrolet and Blankenship. Winners of the "B" and "C" were George Petersen (66), Harlan and Neal Holling (29), Omaha. Heat race winners were Don Cristensen (49), Harlan; Bob Kosiski (53), Omaha; and Bill Wrich (180}, Blair. The Friday night racing capped a successful racing week for the Speedway.

Water Did you ever see a attracts bacteria which only n dero derby? fisherman practicing "skip-along"? It's a game played by trailing a stringer of fish over the side of a boat while the throttle is wide open. All kidding aside, forgetting to pull the stringer into the boat before moving to another fishing spot is a mistake made by many fishermen. The cure for the problem, is to properly care for fish the moment they are taken. Fish should be placed on ice as soon as possible, but there are leveral preliminary steps to keep in mind. They should be drawn immediately. The stomach contents begin to decay soon speeds decay. Always put an ice chest in the boat and take along some plastic bags. The bags are perfect wrapping and will keep cleaned fish from contacting any water in the ice chest. It's better to lay fish on top of the ice than to bury them, and the chest should be opened occassionaily to let in some fresh air. In addition to not bouncing fish on the stringer, "this method of handling assures you of good eating when you get them home.

Pat Goeser, of Jim's Market, cracked a sixth-inning shot at the Harlan diamond that looked like home-run material. Kroger went to his left, and running full-tilt, leaped to grab the drive outside  the field. He came down on top of the fence, fell out of the park, but held the ball long enough for the out. Kroger, though shaken up, finished the game. A rhubarb then arose with umpires, players and even the fans in dissention as to whether it was a homer or an out. The of- ficials decided Goeser was out and the contest proceeded. A letter was sent to the American Softball Association for a ruling. The answer verified the ump's decision. Goeser is still out. Kroger's homer-theft was in vain, however. Paul Goeser, with two "undisputed" four-baggers led a fierce attack that won for Jim's, 11-3. A total of 10,000 bullheads have been put in Prairie Rose Lake recently, according to Park Commissioner Bob Glenn. These fish have exceptional size, running from IA to 1% pounds, stated Glenn. A bushel was also added to Little George Lake. Prairie Rose fishing has dropped off with the exceedingly hot weather. The muggy heat has been hard on fish and fisherman alike, but angleing should pick up when it breaks, Glenn stated A water line has been completed to the beach and another will be finished to the picnic and camping area in the next few days. warning Glenn mentioned a severe problem with kids getting out of the swimming area. He said they take an air-mattress or inner tube and go clear across the lake. They could be hit by a boat or otherwise be endangered. Summons will be issued to anyone swimming outside the marked area or getting on the bouys. "I hate R, but I'd rather issue summons all day long than one drowning report," said Glenn. Maximum fine is $100 or 30 days in jail.
