Is OK after goring by young bull
Albert Knoll, 57, well-known area farmer, was severely gored in the thigh yesterday by a young bull at his farm on Old State Road.
The incident occurred when Mr. Knoll attempted to lead the animal from the barn to a watering trough outside. Without warning, the bull charged from behind, pinning Mr. Knoll to a post, his horn piercing the victim’s leg to the bone.
After freeing himself and tying the animal’s halter to the post, Mr. Knoll made his way to the house. His son, Charles, who arrived a few minutes later, rushed him to Fisher-Titus Hospital.
Mrs. Knoll indicated the bull, a two-year-old Jersey, will probably be destroyed. She said that watering the animal was a chore usually performed by children in the family but that it was being done by Mr. Knoll because they had gone to the State Fair in Columbus for the day.
Hillman hurls no-hitter as O’Donnell’s win
No-hit pitching on the part of Dick Hillman, plus a noisy bat on the part of Jack Brady, gave the O’Donnell Electric Pre-Teen League team an easy 12-0 victory over Wildman’s last night.
Doug Joyce started on the mound for the losers but needed relief from Bob Roderick and Bob Wildman before the four-inning game was over. It was called due to the league’s 10-run rule.

Peckham battles Heyl in final of championship flight
Two terrific young golfers will match strokes on Labor Day for the annual Elks Country Club Championship when Chuck Peckham Jr. and Chip Heyl tee off on Monday morning in the finals of the championship flight.
Peckham, a 27-year-old former Ohio Conference Champion, will take on youth in Heyl as the “Chipper” is just 19 and a linksman for the Bowling Green State University golf team. Both reached the finals after tough struggles.
Both exceptionally long drivers, Peckham earned the right to battle for the trophy as he eliminated Neil Fauber, Don Yarman and then Lee Gordon, with the latter being responsible for dropping two-time champion Carey Root in the opening round.
Heyl has had tough sledding all the way, as he tripped tough Claude Martin in his opening match on the 20th hole. He then turned back BIll Terry in a 19-hole affair. This earned him the right to shoot at Alan Angell. Heyl was held to a tie with his older opponent on the first nine but then won going away 4 and 3.
