Alfofii THURSDAY, NOV. 30, 1W foothill km fw i Plan ypur JULIAN CHRISCHILUS "Tito Inmi to Sta • wwe^wp ••^m^pv^^av "y ^PwiB^w ALVINA MILLER, popular Algol)! high school math* niatics teacher for the past 40 years, Will attest to the readership of the North Iowa "Peach" , .. a couple of weeks ago, we featured Miss Miller as the "Peach of the Week" on the front page and the postman has been busy ever since, "I've been getting cards and letters from all over," she exclaimed the other/day. "Even gifts and flowers." We'll confess we kind of sneaked up on her. Knowing Miss Miller, we figured if we asked her for a picture and story she'd give us 1001 reasons why she shouldn't receive any publicity. ..""•'•;;.".•."' .'•"';'''•". ' - • • ''./••" We contacted Supt. Laing and he furnished the picture and some brief biographical facts. So when Principal Elgin called the night the paper came out and told her about it, Miss Miller was skeptical until she saw the story herself! CRAIG ESPE will attest to the difference in high school and college basketball . . . "There is quite a difference I can tell you," he reported to former teammates last week when he came home for the Thanksgiving break ... Craig was virtually unnoticed for a while around the freshman basketball circles but as of late, has earned a starting guard spot and is doing well at the University of Iowa where he received a scholarship (baseball, that is!) "We've got a terrific freshman tea'm with some big, big boys," he said. The frosh will scrimmage the varsity on the night of Saturday, Dec. 9 in the Iowa fieldhouse. "That Williams (Sam — Iowa's All-Big Ten forward) is something else," he reported. He told teammates that the freshmen scrimmage the varsity often and a couple of times, he switched off on Williams. . "You don't guard Williams— you just stay in his area!" Craig cracked. But with Espe at Iowa and Teeter at Drake, it looks like Whittemore fans, are going to be busy following their home town boys in the sport pages this winter. PROBABLY THE TOP athlete at Iowa State this fall has been Tom Busch, a former Garner high school great . . . since graduating from Garner high school, Tom's parents the LeRoy Busches have moved to Swea City. IF YOU ARE looking for a good book to curl up with this winter, the new best-seller "Topax" comes highly recommended . . . it's a fast-moving, fictionalized tale of the Cuban missile crisis five years ago . . . and is available at the local library too. ONE OF THE main reasons morale in Vietnam has remained so high is that each so'dier or marine knows he has only one year to serve ... so he can start counting the days the moment'he arrives on shore ... .whereas in World War 2 and the Korean War, term of duty in battle areas was indefinite HOW WOULD you like to have the University of Minnesota marching band perform at your high school football game? Well, Independence high school has had the band'sev- eral times in the past years u 1; seems Independence, which is close to Iowa City, is a fine stopping off point for the 225- member U. 'of M. band when it performs for the Iowa-Minnesota football game . . . they stay in hotels and private homes at Independence and then perform at the half of the Independence prep game that night. Shouts of "more, more" brought.the band back for encores earlier this month after the regular halftime show and they played the full program they presented the next day at the Minnesota-Iowa game! SKIRTS ARE getting not only shorter but tighter as well . . . so much so that one young lady teek •long • needle and thread to a dance just In case her tight skirt was unequal to the occasion! MY WIFE was excited when I arrived home from work. ' "Honey, there's a night school course you better sign up for," she exclaimed. "Some officials" from around here are giving a course in officiating football, basketball and baseball and I know you'll be interested." ' "Now why would I be interested in that," I said mat- ter-of-factly while searching for the evening paper. "Well, you've been refereeing games from the bleachers for 17 years and here's a chance for you to bone up on the latest rules," was the answer. I was almost equal to the occasion, "I don't want to be confused by the facts," I snipped and buried my head in the evening paper. , - tefto — terry Bfek- ke, son of the Floyd Brekkes, is again hospitalized at Estherville after five weeks at 'home.
