don smrth HAD our annual opportunity to chat with Bryce Wickett, highly- successful athletic coach at Lu Verne for quite a number of years (in fact, he must be the dean of coaches in Kossuth county), last Thursday afternoon. I hope he doesn't take offense at my reference to the number of years he has been coaching. Knowing him quite well, I don't think he will. BRYCE told me that the possibility exists where he may some day get a chance, to be high school varsity coach for a grandson. The grandson is a son of Bill Wickett, LuVerne area farmer and son of the coach. Now, this grandson is at present fighting for a job on Coach Sherm Arends' junior high club, so isn't too far from the varsity level right now. MENTION of Bill Wickett brings to mind his athletic ability. He was a great catcher in baseball and far better-than-average at basketball - and could he ever swing a bat in the former sport! Bill got a scholarship to Morningside after his high school days. SOME women can take a man to the cleaners as soon as they spot him. COACH Wickett had been checking the records before we arrived to shoot pictures of his two varsity squads — boys and girls. He found that it had been eight years since the clubs at Lu Verne had won seven of the first eight games on the slate (when this was written, the girls were 4-0 and the boys 3-1) at this time in the season. Bryce, however, has been a winner most of the time at the helm of the Lions. It sure was nice talking to he and his assistant, Sherm Arends. They certainly have a good group of athletes. SUPPOSE many of you saw the photo of the three cyclists accused of crucifying an 18-year- old girl down in Florida. Now, weren't they a good looking group? Members of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club, two were bearded and all three were ragged and dirty. They nailed the girl's hands to a tree and kept her there 15 minutes in a punishment cere- .mony. Their nicknames? Super' Squirrel, Crazy John and Mangy. " At least the names hit tine mark: NOW, this part of the story that was alongside the picture was sure sweet. When they left the court at West Palm Beach, the bearded pair kissed each other. That should be some sort of a tip as to what they're made of. The kiss is also supposed to be a part of their club ritual. Two others, Spider and Fat Frank, had been rounded up earlier and arraigned on the charge. Meanwhile, the girl told police her crucifixion was ordered when she disobeyed orders of the gang and held out $10. According to officers, she "just stood there and they nailed her hands to a tree." MAN!!!1 NEVER pour black coffee into an intoxicated person. If you do, you'll wind up with a wide-awake drunk on your hands. PRES. Charles DeGaulle of France didn't endear himself to residents of this country 'last week when he took a couple of slaps at us during a semi-annual press conference in Paris. Of course, not too many have loved Charley for some time, so maybe the way to stay in power is to remain unpopular. He said the U. S. was filling France with inflated dollars and that lack of a peace settlement in the Middle East is the real reason the war continues in Vietnam. WE can't argue much with the latter half of his statement, but the inflated dollar bit seems a little ridiculous. France has enjoyed our money for a long time- plus very expensive help (in men killed and war supplies) during a pair of World Wars — so maybe the answer is like in many other countries that receive our aid, they would like more. The way we've manufactured enemies all around the globe with our gigantic "donations" (which amount to billions of dollars), it's too bad we ever got the plan going in the first place. AS for the French. Maybe the best thing to do when World War III (we hope not) comes along is to let the country be over- run by who ever the invader is and let it go at that. - ?IT'S not hard to understand why some 30,000 young, and in many instances, brilliant, lowans move out of the state each year. The tax situation isn't helping any. Now, Gov. Hughes has made a plea for "honest lowans" so they will not take advantage of a loophole in a portion of the new tax credit law. THE item in question deals with income tax credits or refunds meant for low income families. The new law provides state income tax credits or refunds ranging from $12 down to $2 for each member of a family, depending on taxable income. The break is supposed to go to families with taxable earnings under $7,200 per year. The less you make, the more the credit is worth - up to $12 per person in the low brackets. HUGHES has called on all good lowans to ignore the flaw in the law and not apply for refunds meant for the low income group. . That last-minute rush to pass tax laws during the last legislative session sure turned out to be a fluke. And as a result, many lowans would rather get out of the state than put up with all the hog-wash involved. It may not be any better anywhere else, but it sure seems like it must be! To call Iowa's tax laws goofy is the understatement of the century. IT'S easy to admire a good loser at a strip poker party. 39 New Units Licensed By County Owners For at least 39 families or persons in Kossuth county, Christmas came early this year.
