don smith A scad of fans think Frank Sinatra is great (especially persons from my era - when music was something you could hum or whistle after you heard it)and of course, many others can't stand him. For his many fans, "Frank Sinatra - A Man and His Music" the evening of April 3, proved to be another great night on the boob tube. BEING a fan, we knew from the kick-off that we'd like the show. And we did. The bands of Nelson Riddle and Gordon Jenkins, featuring top- flight studio musicians (that's where all of them are now since there are very few big dance bands on the road), furnished terrific support for the thin one. AND even a few numbers by Frank's well-known singing daughter, Nancy, weren't too bad. From an early-day fan, thafs saying quite a lot, because our appreciation of present day "musick" isn't too greatl FRANK belted out a few tunes and used the subtle approach to others. Numbers that gave us the biggest charge were "Moonlight In Vermont", "Nobody Till Somebody Loves You", "My Heart Stood Still", "Love Is Funny", "When You're Alone" "It Was Just One of Those Things", "Granada", "Chicago" and his closing theme, "Put Your Dreams Away". TV could use a lot more shows like that one. Even the commercials were good. - 1- THIS was clipped from another midwest newspaper - "The hostess chose a cerise dinner dress with a low oval neckline for entertaining." TWO members of our staff, Denny Waller and myself, received a very nice invitation to the CYO of Sioux City Appreciation dinner, held at Laurens April 3 for superintendents, athletic directors, coaches and writers who covered sports events in the diocese during the current school year. Unfortunately, Denny and I couldn't make it. We would like to sincerely congratulate Coach Vince Meyer of Bancroft St. John's, who was selected Coach of the Year in the Sioux City diocese. THIS writer has known Vince for a long time. Not all of the 32 or so years he's been baseball and basketball mentor at St. John's, but for more than half that time. We've never thought anything but well of V. J. at any time. Used to officiate for him - both in baseball and basketball, and he's good to work for, because he knows the rules of both sports, and those are the coaches easiest to work for. Also officiated basketball with Vince more than once, and he was very capable at that job, too. WITHOUT a doubt, he is the top high school baseball coach in Iowa - and has been for a long time. Non-believers should look at his record some time. We don't have it at hand, but we'll bet he's been on the winning end of baseball games 90 percent of the time - and as a result, the Bancroft school (and his Legion teams, too) has an impressive string of tournament victories - and numerous state titles to its credit. So, here's a tip of the Periscope hat to V. J. Meyer, dean of all area coaches. HOW about the night the TV screen showed a pistol pointed at viewers for the opening of a western and the audio portion asked, "What do doctors recommend for headaches?" WE hope, along with practically all others on earth, that the findings of Dr. Maurice Green of St. Louis University will hold water. Dr. Green has apparently achieved an exciting breakthrough toward solving the riddle of whether at least some human cancers are caused by viruses. DR. Green's findings were announced April 5 when he said lie had developed technique for detecting cancer- virus "fingerprints" in the absence of an intact virus itself - when applied to certain animal cancer tissues. His technique may be the world's first direct test to determine whether one or more common disease viruses such as those of the common cold, smallpox, chicken pox or warts - may also be among the causes of cancer. HIS work may also result in other discoveries (we certainly hope so). Such as determining if certain viruses in animals play a role in causing human malignancies. Dr. Green's work so far has been primarily with rodents - and it is hoped that similar findings may result in the ultimate control of cancer (permanent ) in man. May God work at his side and provide all the answers to this most-dread disease. HEADLINE of an ad in a New York bus: "For a successful affair, if s the Empire Hotel."
