I , by don smith HIGH school sports in this state lost a good friend last week when Lyle Quinn, executive secretary of the Iowa High School Athletic Association since 1941, died of a kidney ailment at Boone where he had lived most of his life. LYLE lived sports and was instrumental in correcting problems the association was having when he was named secretary thereby making the organization into a real humming one. He succeeded George A. Brown in the post after lettering in football and debate at Boone High School and later lettering as a tackle at Simpson College during the 1931 season. HE served on many athletic boards during his career, including the National Basketball Rules Committee. In 1938, he was named to the executive committee of that body. Mr. Quinn knew rules as any person who ever attended one of his area rules meetings will attest. He told us after one such meeting at Humboldt quite a few years ago that it was his wish that all sports officials would attend such sessions or not work games. Unfortunately, many officials still don't attend the meetings. Since taking leave of absence from his job in June, Bernie Saggau, one of Mr. Quinn' s two assistants, has served as acting executive secretary of the association — and it is very possible he will be his successor. SPANKING makes the child smart I WHILE at the Junior Fair and Field Days parade at Swea City recently, was handed a card by a bearded fellow who was one of the entourage representing the Milford Area Diamond Jubilee Celebration, held at that north Iowa town July 29- Aug. 5. The card read, "I Am Growing It (the beard) For The Milford Area Diamond Jubilee Celebration No it does not itch - No fleas yet — No my wife does not like it — Yes I sleep alone — Color, Only my barber knows for sure- Yes, I am going to shave it off August 5- Any More Questions?" HOW about that family in Marion county living on a monthly ADC check for $301, with a 1941 car, a 1965 auto on which they are paying $70 per month and a color TV ? From what we hear, you don't have to look all the way to Marion county for such cases — there are some much nearer to home. We've said it before - relief is okay, but when those receiving help in the way of a check live better than many of the taxpayers footing the bills, if s time to call a halt I Why not publish a list of all recipients ? Of course, it probably wouldn't do any good, so we'll just continue to grouse about it. Wm. Hall, Algona, To Wed Sept. 2 At Estherville SANDRA LEE MILLER Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Miller of Estherville announce the engagement of their daughter, Sandra Lee, to Bill Hall, son of Mr. and Mrs. W.A. Hall of Algona. A September 2 wedding is being planned at St. Patrick's Church in Estherville. MIDDLE AGE - When you look forward to a dull evening. ON this date in 1829, the first railroad locomotive was used at Carbondale, Pa. August 9, 1945, the second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan (and look at the world now). Herbert Hoover was born August 10, 1874 (hmm, the late President Hoover and this writer very nearly had the same birth date). And Robert Fulton's steamboat 'made its first trip August 11, 1807. A large number of local baseball fans (and scads of Little Leaguers) had a final fling for 1967 at the Athletic Park Wednesday night when the city's Recreation Commission put on a free watermelon feed following a couple of pretty interesting baseball games. Both games were exhibition affairs, with a pair of PeeWee League clubs battling it out in the opener to a 20-19 decision, then the Senior League All-Stars dropped a 1-0 decision in five innings to the champion Spartans of Gary Barr. The finale was probably the best Little League game played here all summer. Not much in the way of hitting, but the fielding, even a couple of times when apparent bobbles were quickly turned into outs, was superb and the pitching quite good. All in all, it was a big evening - and fitting one for a great season !
